Therapeutic Lifestyle Program

What is FirstLine Therapy™?

Osteoporosis AlexandriaFirstLine Therapy is a "therapeutic lifestyle program" that lets patients live their life in a way that helps improve health and prevent disease. This program is based on scientific research that demonstrates how many chronic diseases associated with aging can be effectively prevented or treated by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Some of these diseases include:

  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoporosis
  • Alzheimer's disease

In addition to these age-related diseases, a healthy therapeutic lifestyle can also be used as a primary form of treatment for conditions such as stress-related disorders, fatigue disorders, PMS, menopause and conditions related to obesity.

Fundamentals of FirstLine Therapy
FirstLine Therapy puts patients on a path to optimal health through a combination of balanced eating, regular exercise, stress reduction and appropriate nutritional supplementation. This path begins with:

  • Knowledge of a healthy lifestyle
  • Balanced eating habits
  • Regular physical activity
  • Appropriate nutritional supplementation
  • Stress management for internal balance
  • Sleep for proper mind/body functioning

Once patients are equipped with this information, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is simple, and patients will soon be able to control premature aging, prevent chronic disease and prolong vitality.

Getting Started
In order to begin the FirstLine Therapy program, patients should first know their current health status. Your doctor may perform a variety of health assessments, including a body composition measurement to determine the ratio of body fat to lean muscle mass. Excess body fat can greatly increase your health risks, while a higher ratio of muscle can increase metabolism and is associated with a lower incidence of illness.

Improving your muscle-to-fat ratio can be one of the most powerful tools in controlling the aging process. This can be done by practicing proper nutrition and a healthy diet, while following a simple plan of physical activity.

FirstLine Therapy Components
Your personalized program includes:

  • Initial and follow-up testing
  • Individual consultations
  • Your personal FirstLine Therapy guidebook
  • Weekly visits for lifestyle counseling
  • Nutritional product recommendations

By committing to this program, you are taking the first step towards better health.

What Makes the FirstLine Therapy Program Different?

  • Osteoarthritis AlexandriaIt's not just a fat loss program - FirstLine Therapy addresses the underlying causes of common chronic disorders such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, metabolic syndrome and many others. This program is designed to improve body composition by helping patients maintain muscle as they lose fat.
  • The eating plan is different - While many diets focus on cutting out certain foods like fats, carbs or just less eating in general, the FirstLine Therapy eating plan encourages patients to eat frequently, but to eat the right kind of foods, the right kind of fat and the right kind of carbs. By maintaining blood sugar and energy levels, patients report less hunger and are able to follow the FirstLine Therapy eating plan much easier than other commonly followed diets.
  • FirstLine Therapy incorporates medical foods and nutraceuticals - Medical foods are designed to address the unique nutritional needs of patients with specific health problems, while nutraceuticals provide targeted nutritional support for specific functions, such as support insulin sensitivity, healthy blood lipids, healthy glucose metabolism and more. Appropriate use of these nutritional supports can help improve patient compliance, enhance program effectiveness and shorten the time it takes to achieve the program's goals.
  • FirstLine Therapy has been demonstrated to be effective in controlled clinical studies - Most other diets have not.

FirstLine Therapy provides everything you need to implement a successful therapeutic lifestyle program. By combining a smart, easy-to-follow meal plan with additional nutritional support and moderate physical activity, patients can increase muscle, decrease body fat and enjoy better mental function, sex drive, sleep and more! With the FirstLine Therapy program, patients can improve their current health and reduce the risk of serious health problems later in life.

For patients seeking high energy, mental clarity, full function and absence of disease well into old age, FirstLine Therapy can help.
