What is FirstLine Therapy?
Nutrition and Lifestyle: Two Powerful Ingredients for Chronic Disease Management
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. These illnesses are responsible for 7 of every 10 deaths, affect the quality of life of 90 million Americans, and consume 78% of all health care expenditures.
Because a wide variety of these conditions are caused by unhealthy lifestyle habits, national clinical guidelines for their management advocate a multifactorial lifestyle approach designated “therapeutic lifestyle changes” or “TLC.”
FirstLine Therapy (FLT) is a comprehensive TLC program that will provide patients with the knowledge they need to make healthy lifestyle choices each day going forward. Helping patients adopt a therapeutic lifestyle is the first and arguably the most important therapy doctors can use to treat many chronic health problems.
Lifestyle-Related Chronic Health Problems
- Elevated Cholesterol
- Elevated Blood Pressure
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Type II Diabetes
- Insulin Resistance or Metabolic Syndrome
- Conditions Related to Aging
Dr. Weiss’ nutrition program along with Metagenics(TM) The FirstLine Therapy Program allows us to treat patients with any of these above conditions more effective than with diet alone.
