FirstLine Therapy
Lifestyle changes, good nutrition, regular exercise, and stress management, are the first line of therapy in the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases. Lifestyle changes are recommended as the first line of therapy for chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and more. To make the necessary changes takes knowledge, motivation, and support.

What FirstLine Therapy is

FirstLine Therapy is a 12 week program run by my nurse practitioner involving 3 individual sessions including measurement of BMI, percent body fat, nutrition assessment, and development of an eating plan, and 10 group sessions designed to inform, motivate and support individuals in making lifestyle changes. The FirstLine Therapy program’s basic principles are in accordance with the most current scientific research

How FirstLine Therapy works

One of the reasons diet and exercise programs fail is they are one-dimensional-- that is, they focus only on weight loss. But FirstLine Therapy isn't just about weight loss, it's about achieving a lifetime of good health. So instead of counting calories, you'll learn simple steps to help you take control of your specific health situation and easy ways to track your progress, tips for success, reminders, and other support that will help you achieve your goals and maintain your health improvement.

How FirstLine Therapy is different

Most weight loss programs leave you feeling hungry, FirstLine Therapy help you eat the right foods to help you feel full. Many weight loss programs result in loss of muscle mass. Muscle mass regulates metabolism and insulin function. FirstLine Therapy helps you build muscle mass. This improves your overall health and helps you to keep weight off.

FirstLine Therapy will help you address the underlying causes of common health problems. By providing you with the necessary tools you can take control of your health. The goal is to help you live your life in a way that improves your health. With FirstLine Therapy you can feel good now, and maintain good health for years to come

Why FirstLine Therapy works

FirstLine Therapy has helped thousands of people regain their health and live fuller, more vibrant lives. FirstLine Therapy works because it addresses the underlying causes of disease, not just the symptoms. We'll help you to take simple steps that you can make part of your lifestyle for life.
