Illness is not a Normal Part of Aging
Did you know:

  • Chronic diseases account for 78% of annual healthcare costs.
  • Chronic diseases also account for one-third of the years of potential life lost before age 65.
  • Most chronic diseases are caused by unhealthy lifestyle habits. For example, 91% of type 2 diabetes is caused by unhealthy habits and forms of behavior.
  • Chronic, disabling conditions cause major limitations in activity for more than one of every 10 americans.
  • The prolonged course of illness and disability from chronic diseases results in extended pain and suffering and decreased quality of life.

    FirstLine Therapy (FLT) is a specialized therapetic change program unlike any other in that the FLT system targets the underlying causes of chronic illness by incorporating a sensible eating plan, exercise, nutritional supplementation, and stress management 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 lowfat diets while FLT emphasizes the importance of a low-glycemic eating plan that is consistent with current research.

    The FLT eating plan is different

    • 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).

    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.

    FLT has been demonstrated to be effective in human clinical studies

    • Most programs lack clinical evidence of effectiveness.

    Getting Started – A Matter of Fat

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

    Excess body fat can greatly increase your health risks. But a higher ratio of muscle increases your metabolism and is associated with a lower incidence of illness, improving your muscle-to-fat ratio is perhaps the most powerful tool in controlling the aging process and restoring vitality. And that’s what FirstLine is all about.
