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
First Line Therapy is a unique 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.
The Support You Need to Succeed
Most doctors don’t have the time, skills, or resources to provide you with effective lifestyle counseling. And so their patients—even those at high risk of disease—are often left to “figure it out” by themselves. First Line Therapy Is different. It’s structured with professional supervision to help you:
- Establish realistic, personalized goals to improve health
- Monitor your progress and help you stay on track
- Learn how to eat and shop for healthy, nutritious foods that manage (not increase) cravings
- Exercise in a way that builds muscle and gets rid of unwanted fat
- Relax and manage unhealthy stress
- Feel better and do more!
