A Therapeutic Lifestyle is the most powerful
tool there is to positively impact your health for life.”

–American Heart Association

A “Therapeutic Lifestyle” means…

Making choices every day that will enhance health and help prevent disease, adopting habits of living that may delay the onset of illness in old age,  increasing your years of good health and full function, enabling yourself to achieve a full, healthy life.

FirstLine Therapy™ is a TLC program that can help you improve your health, achieve your health goals, and reduce your health risks.

With First Line Therapy™, you’ll learn simple things you can do every day to take control of your health-such as diet, exercise, stress management,  and appropriate nutritional supplementation. Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) are the first, and possibly the most important therapy doctors can prescribe  to treat many chronic health problems.

Lifestyle changes are now recommended as the “first line of therapy” for treating chronic illness or reducing the risk of other serious health conditions, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Overweight/Obesity
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar
  • Alzheimer’s disease

A program of Therapeutic Lifestyle Change is recommended by leading health organizations as the first treatment option for other conditions such as:

  • Stress-related disorders
  • Fatigue disorders
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Menopause
  • Prostate problems
  • Conditions related to overweight and obesity

In order to measure your progress, you first need to know your current health status. A quick, non-invasive measurement of your body fat and lean  muscle mass along with a variety of other health assessments may be performed.

Excessive body fat can greatly increase your health risks. But First Line Therapy™ is all about improving your fat to lean body mass ratio,  one of the most powerful tools in controlling the aging process and restoring your vitality.
