Lifestyle Medicine: A New Standard for Managing Chronic Illness

Extensive scientific research demonstrates that many of the chronic diseases associated with aging can be prevented or even treated by adopting a healthy lifestyle:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Osteoporosis

A therapeutic lifestyle change program is recommended by leading health organizations as a first-line treatment option for many of the conditions above, as well as:

  • Stress-related disorders
  • Fatigue disorders
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Menopause
  • Conditions related to overweight and obesity

Helping You Make Lifestyle Changes to Improve Health

Everyone knows that eating right and staying in shape are important for overall health. But life's everyday pressures—hectic schedules, work deadlines, family issues, etc.—can make it difficult to find the time for good nutrition, exercise, and adequate rest.

Whether you suffer from a lifestyle-related chronic disease, or have been advised by your doctor to eat right and exercise more, the FirstLine Therapy lifestyle medicine program can help.

Change Your Life and Change Your Health with Lifestyle Medicine

FirstLine Therapy is a therapeutic lifestyle change, or lifestyle modification, program. Designed by health care professionals, FirstLine Therapy has been shown remarkably successful in helping individuals like you return to a path of extended health. FirstLine Therapy (FLT) targets the underlying causes of chronic illness by incorporating a sensible eating plan, exercise, nutritional supplementation, and stress management. It is a program unlike any other. In fact, the following key characteristics are unique to the FLT program:

FLT is not just a weight loss program

  • Most programs are focused on weight while FLT is best used as a first line treatment for common, chronic health problems (e.g., high cholesterol, insulin resistance, unhealthy body composition). 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.

The FLT eating plan is different

  • Most programs are focused on low fat diets while FLT emphasizes the importance of a low-glycemic eating plan that is consistent with current research.

FLT incorporates medical foods and nutritional supplements

  • The appropriate use of medical foods and supplements enhances program effectiveness and shortens the time it takes for you to achieve risk reduction goals.

The Support You Need to Succeed

FirstLine Therapy offers you structured, professional supervision to help you:

  • Establish realistic, personalized goals to improve health
  • Monitor your progress and help you stay on track
  • Learn how to eat and shop for healthy, nutritious foods that manage (not increase) cravings
  • Exercise in a way that builds muscle and gets rid of unwanted fat
  • Relax and manage unhealthy stress
  • Feel better and do more!
