What is First Line Therapy or ‘FLT’?
FirstLine Therapy is a proven personalized lifestyle medicine program that incorporates therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) such as healthy nutrition, nutritional protocols, exercise, and stress management.
As a medical professional geared toward the total health of our patients, nothing is more rewarding than to be able to go to work each day knowing you are dramatically changing your patients’ health – and their lives?
That’s the feeling that we, as FirstLine Therapy practitioners, experience every day by helping patients manage, reduce risk to, and even reverse chronic illness.
Lifestyle Medicine: A New Standard for Managing Chronic Illness
Leading health organizations now recommend therapeutic lifestyle change and lifestyle medicine as the “first line of therapy” for treating and reducing the risk of common conditions such as:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Conditions related to aging
Lifestyle choices are also the key to addressing other health concerns and symptoms, such as:
- Hormone imbalance
- Low sex drive
- Stress-related symptoms
- Poor memory or lack of mental clarity
- And many others
The Preferred Path to Better Health
Nearly 50% of Americans have at least 1 chronic health condition. Chronic diseases cause 7 out of 10 premature deaths – many of which are completely preventable.
Leading health organizations now realize that there’s a better solution to managing or reversing many of today’s most common chronic illnesses. Many of these conditions are linked with unhealthy, modern lifestyles – low physical activity, high stress, low rest, and eating habits that include fast and process foods, high sugar, low fiber, and saturated fats.
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:
- Crohn’s disease/ulcerative colitis
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Hormone imbalance/menopause
- Autoimmune disorders
Is The FLT Program suitable for me?
The FLT program is for anyone and everyone. It is a way to slow the Aging and remove many of the bad factors that lead to rapid Ageing and eventually increase the longevity with a reduction in chronic illnesses. It is a lifestyle and a higher level of health attainable by optimizing the nutrients in our diet and providing adequate physical activity and psychological support.
FirstLine Therapy has been demonstrated effective in a number of clinical trials and individual case studies. It helps people just like you manage their illness and reduce their risk to more serious health conditions.
But more importantly – it helps you FEEL better. So you can enjoy more years of good health and do the things you want to do. Isn’t that what really matters?
Will I Be Able to Lose Excess Weight Too?
Weight is lost in a more responsible way and by helping create habits to keep it off. It is done in a very personalized manner, and a program is created just for you based on your evaluation. Medical food is included to tackle to issues at the cellular levels. Nutraceuticals are prescribed to support the body. Detoxification is done as necessary to reduce the level of toxins.
While most ‘DIET’ plans help you lose weight, it often comes right back, as soon as you stop the program. No specific information is provided to you about your body composition and about what’s really wrong that prevents weight loss in the first place.
