Feeling Great in Your Golden Years

While nothing can stop time, proper nutrition and lifestyle changes can help you improve your health and reverse chronic illness. Nearly 50% of Americans have at least one chronic health condition. Chronic diseases cause 7 out of 10 premature deaths—many of which are completely preventable.

Lifestyle Medicine programs—which include doctor supervision and recommendations for eating, exercise, nutritional supplementation, and stress management—have also been shown to help manage a variety of other common health concerns as well:

  • Arthritis
  • Crohn's disease/ulcerative colitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol
  • Heart Disease
  • Depression
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Menopause
  • Osteoporosis
  • Autoimmune disease

FirstLine Therapy

Helping people to manage their illness and reduce their risk to more serious health conditions. This is not a weight reduction program—it's a disease reduction program. While weight loss often occurs, it's only secondary to the primary goal helping you achieve and maintain a healthy body composition (lean-muscle-to-fat ratio) to improve health, manage disease, feel better, and reduce your risk to more serious conditions.

FirstLine Therapy is ideal for treating or reducing the risk of common conditions such as:

  • Overweight / Obesity                        
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Aging
  • Conditions related to aging

FAQs

Click on question below to read the answers.

1. What is FirstLine Therapy?

It's a comprehensive therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) program that provides patients with the necessary knowledge to make healthy lifestyle choices to manage or reverse chronic illness and improve health. TLC is the first, and arguably the most important, therapy to manage many chronic health problems.

2. What is lifestyle medicine?

Lifestyle medicine—also referred to as lifestyle intervention, lifestyle therapy, or therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC)—is a patient-centered approach for disease management, reduction, and prevention. It incorporates diet and nutritional recommendations, regular exercise, adequate rest, and stress management recommended for many lifestyle-related conditions. FirstLine Therapy is a research-based and clinically evaluated lifestyle medicine program.

3. What are expected outcomes with FirstLine Therapy?

The correction of unhealthy lifestyles is the cornerstone of any prevention and treatment strategy to address the root causes of many common chronic illnesses. FirstLine Therapy can be applied to a broad range of conditions, and individual results vary based on the commitment of the patient and their individual circumstances. However, a common thread among most patients is an improved body composition (fat loss/muscle retention) and body mass index, a reduction in stress and fatigue, and an improvement in overall energy or the way they "feel" in general. Noticeable improvements in common biomarkers of health (blood pressure, glucose/insulin, lipids) are also predicted outcomes in compliant FirstLine Therapy program participants.

4. Why should I consider FirstLine Therapy?

FirstLine Therapy is a disease-reduction program that improves overall health by offering a non-pharmaceutical approach to improve body composition. Almost anyone can lose weight (including unhealthy weight loss from muscle), but keeping it off is difficult unless long-term lifestyle changes are made, such as improved food choices, regular exercise, and stress management. Learning habits for a lifetime of health goes beyond the short-term focus or tedious caloric restrictions of most weight loss programs. FirstLine Therapy components help retain muscle, reduce fat and inflammation, and improve blood sugar management to help restore optimal functioning and reduce dependence on pharmaceuticals to relieve symptoms and manage lifestyle-related risk factors.

5. Is FirstLine Therapy a "weight loss" program?

It can be. FirstLine Therapy is a lifestyle therapy program, with a focus on improving body composition (ratio of lean tissue to fat tissue), regulating blood sugar, and reducing inflammatory triggers to promote health. Weight loss (targeting unhealthy fat) often occurs on the program, but is secondary to following a healthy diet, exercising, and managing stress.
