A joint scientific statement in 2004 from the American Cancer Society, the American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association asserted that:

Cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes account for nearly two of every three deaths in the United States.

These are largely diseases of diet. Yet national investment in prevention of these diseases is estimated at less than 3% of the total annual health care expenditures.1

All these organizations state boldly that the first line of therapy is diet and exercise. Yet neither these organizations nor the medical establishment have been able to provide people with a successful means to:

  • treat the cause of the their health problems
  • incorporate good health practices in their lifestyle

Our FirstLineTherapy™ does both. It really works.

It’s like a lifeline with supportive people helping you get on board. And it actually addresses the underlying causes of chronic disease.

FirstLineTherapy™ is based on scientific research. It was created from the desire to prevent disease, rather than wait for it to manifest and then "manage the disease," usually with drugs and expensive medical procedures.

Many Americans are pre-diabetic. We have consumed so much sugar in the form of refined sugar and processed grains that quickly turn into sugar, that many of us have what is now called Metabolic Syndrome (also called Syndrome X).

Let’s put this in perspective: 40% of all drug costs are spent on suppressing the symptoms or the expression of Metabolic Syndrome - high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, abdominal weight gain, stroke, osteoarthritis, etc.

FirstLineTherapy™ will help you lose weight now, and will put you on a path for significantly better health in the decades to come.

Our promise to you: This is not a diet. This is not a fad. This is the real thing. We show you how to embrace a lifestyle modification so you feel better now and have a higher quality of life in the future.

Give us 12 weeks and we will:

  • Show you how to make healthy choices when you go to restaurants and to friends’ houses (that one is a little trickier).
  • Show you a social structure for nutritional and lifestyle change, so that it is easier to stay "on the wagon" of health.
  • Improve your body composition by reducing the total fat and increasing the total amount of muscle in your body, so that your shape changes – you lose the spare tire, the abdominal fat, and gain shapeliness.
  • Address symptoms of chronic inflammation:
    • Allergy symptoms typically improve or disappear
    • High blood sugar and high insulin levels typically become normalized
    • Joint pain lessens
  • Figure out how to get some exercise – we know this is a hard one for sedentary people.
    • We can use gentle movement therapy for people with chronic illness who are unable to tolerate formal exercise programs.
    • We advise walking for those who are able to do so – in graded steps.
    • We advise different forms of strength training for those who need to build more muscle mass.
    • We work with local gyms and trainers as needed for those who prefer more formal forms of exercise.
    • We show you how to work it into your day at the office – you will be surprised what you can do while on the phone for example.

Here is a critical piece of information for your success:

The average time frame for successful modification of a habit occurs at about 45 days. Between weeks 3 and 6 people will struggle with change. Our bodies seem to release toxicity in a 21-day cycle, which coincides with the times of struggle. If we get as far as the 7th or 8th week, we will do well, because our habits will be modified. The first six weeks are crucial times for forming new habits of lifestyle. That’s why it takes teamwork to be successful.

So, how does FirstLineTherapy™ work, what do you do?

First, call us at 904-880-1660, make an appointment to get started.

Week 1:
• Comprehensive Clinical Tests
• Initial consultation to review test results, determine your health goals and establish your course of lifestyle therapy
• You’ll receive a guidebook, instructions, and advice about nutritional supplements
• Begin your program

Weeks 2-5
• Weekly visits for lifestyle counseling

Week 6
• Re-testing to evaluate your progress and identify any needed program adjustments

Weeks 7-11
• Bi-weekly visits for lifestyle counseling

Week 12
• Re-testing to evaluate your progress
• If your goals have been achieved, a maintenance program may be prescribed to ensure that your health improvements are maintained
• Or, you may decide to continue your program if all of your goals have not been achieved

During the comprehensive clinical tests which include medical history, blood work & urinalysis (if needed), etc., we also perform a bioimpedance analysis (BIA). This measures body composition, both percentage of body fat and lean body mass. This test allows us to track your progress over time because it gives us a reading on many aspects of your body including:

Phase angle: All living substances have a phase angle. Lower phase angles indicate either cell death or a breakdown of the cell membrane. Higher phase angles indicate healthy cells. In fresh uncooked vegetables, phase angle can exceed 45 degrees. In cooked vegetables, phase angle is zero because they are dead. Phase Angle indicates the course of disease. It increases as the result of optimal health based on good nutrition and consistent exercise.

Body Cell Mass: BCM represents the "living cells" such as those found in muscles, organs, blood and immune cells. In the normally nourished individual, muscle tissue accounts for approximately 60% of the body cell mass, organ tissue for 20% of body cell mass, with the remaining 20% made up of red cells and tissue cells. Also includes intracellular water – the water inside your trillions of cells.

Extracellular Cell Mass: This is extracellular fluids, the amount of water found outside your cells. ECM includes blood and lymph, plus solids such as bone and cartilage - the primary functions of support and transport.

Lean body mass: The sum of body cell mass and extracellular cell mass.

Fat mass: The amount of fat stored in the body.

Body capacitance: Measures the ability for nutrients to move into the cell and waste to move out. It increases or decreases depending upon the health and the number of cells. Damage to the cell membrane and its functions is as lethal to the cell as direct damage to the nucleus itself. Cells are compartments filled with a concentrated solution of chemicals and salts. Groups of cells perform specialized functions and are linked by an intricate communications system. The cell membrane maintains an ion concentration gradient between the intracellular and extracellular spaces. This gradient creates an electrical potential difference across the membrane which is essential to cell survival. Electrical gradients are necessary to support movement of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nutrients. Therefore, the cell membrane has electrically insulating qualities, or capacitance.

Basal metabolic rate: Based upon lean body mass, the number of calories your body uses each day, not including the calories burned through exercise.

 

We’ll show you what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and snacks in between.  We’ll meet with you every week so you can really, truly, reach for your goals and obtain them.

 

We also work with people in groups – up to 10 people – for nutritional counseling and periodic body composition analysis.
