There are three key reasons that make FirstLine Therapy (FLT) different than conventional lifestyle and diet programs:

1. FLT is more than just weight loss.
• FLT can help you lose unhealthy fat while retaining healthy, lean muscle.
• FLT integrates body composition testing (fat & lean tissue ratios)-being thin doesn't necessarily mean you're healthy.
• An imbalance in body composition (too much fat or losing muscle tissue) can lead to serious health problems-high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, etc.
• Loss of muscle results in loss of ability to burn calories, making it much more difficult to maintain weight loss over time.
• FLT focuses on lifestyle factors that are the underlying cause of many health problems.


2. The FLT eating plan is different.
• Most diets focus on NOT eating-not eating fat, not eating carbs, or just plain not eating much of anything.
• The FLT eating plan emphasizes the need to eat, and to eat frequently.
• The focus is on eating THE RIGHT KIND OF FOODS-the right kind of fat, the right kind of carbohydrates, and the right kind of protein-all in the right portions.
• FLT incorporates a low-glycemic-index eating plan based on the latest scientific research that will help you maintain stable blood sugar and energy levels.
• Low-glycemic diets are more effective than low fat diets in treating obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes.
• People report less hunger and more energy, making it much easier to stick with the program.


3. FLT incorporates medical foods and dietary supplements.
• Using appropriate medical foods and dietary supplements with FLT can improve the effectiveness of the program and help you achieve your health goals.
• Medical foods are designed to address the unique nutritional needs of patients with specific health concerns.
• Dietary supplements provide targeted nutritional support for specific functions, such as healthy blood cholesterol or blood sugar levels, joint function and mobility, or healthy hormone metabolism.
 



What is FirstLine Therapy?

FirstLine Therapy is based on extensive scientific research demonstrating that many of the chronic diseases associated with aging are largely caused by lifestyle choices. These diseases include:

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

Alzheimer’s disease  •  Stress-related disorders  •  Osteoporosis

What is Detox?

Did you know our liver is designed to detox automatically? It is the body’s detoxifier, a filter and a fat burning organ. It has this amazing built-in process that breaks down everything from chemicals, preservatives and heavy metals to the food and beverages you ingest. However, for the detox process to work smoothly, your body needs nutritional elements to help it work properly to break down toxins. With our very busy lifestyles and toxic environment, our detoxification mechanisms become overloaded and the process becomes less efficient
and symptoms may occur.

It has been suggested that toxic overload contributes to more serious conditions such as autoimmune diseases, inflammatory rheumatoid arthritis and neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Cleansing is like an oil change for your body. It is the process of removing the buildup of waste and toxins from your organs, blood and cells. A cleanse is done by eliminating foods that leave behind toxins, taking supplements that help flush toxins out and adding clean
foods that help reboot your system.

Benefits of a Detox:

• Fat loss (especially legs and abdomen) • Improved digestion (constipation reduction) • Reduction in headaches • Increased energy
• Improved Concentration • Less join pain and morning stiffness • Anti-aging effects • Increased productivity • Clearer skin and eyes
• Greater motivation and creativity • Reduction of allergic symptoms • Improved sleep

Chemicals are everywhere, in the air, food, water, soil, dust and everyday products. Over time, a buildup of toxins in your body can make you feel bad. While you may have limited control over your environment, you have a great deal of control over your own body. A
Metabolic Detoxification Program can help remove toxins from your body.

By taking action now, you can start to feel re-energized and renewed. Contact one of our health practitioners about our detoxification programs.
