What is FirstLine Therapy?

FirstLine Therapy is a “therapeutic lifestyle program” designed to address the underlying cause of many common health problems, and therefore improve health. When your underlying cellular health is better, you energy levels are higher, your body metabolizes fat better, you sleep better…you just feel better all over!

FirstLine Therapy integrates:

  • A smart, easy-to-follow meal plan
  • Added nutritional support to supply energy and conveniently increase nutrient intake while reducing calorie intake
  • A moderate amount of physical activity
  • Professional monitoring to individualize the program for each patient, track progress, and ensure success

 FirstLine Therapy is unique as it:

  • Has been demonstrated safe and effective in controlled clinical trials
  • Uses an easy-to-follow low glycemic meal plan, not a difficult diet plan based on willpower and starving yourself
  • Supports healthy energy production
  • Promotes fat loss, not muscle loss
  • Monitors fat loss and muscle maintenance through Bio-Impedance Analysis (BIA), which is an electronic method of measuring body composition
  • Uses a therapeutic medical food proven in clinical trials to increase muscle while decreasing body fat
  • Improves health now and reduces the risk of serious health problems later
Understanding Bio-Impedance Analysis

   Bio-impedance analysis (BIA) is a reliable method of measuring body composition, including percentage of body fat and lean body mass. Measurements are taken with a bio-impedance analyzer, which uses electrodes similar to EKG electrodes. The machine passes a harmless, ultra-low level electrical current through the body. Lean tissue, which is over 70% water, is a good conductor of electrical current. Fatty tissue—low in water—is not. Thus, the resistance to the flow of electrical current measured by the analyzer can be used to calculate body composition. Body bio-impedance analysis is used in preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic applications. A normal distribution of tissue and fluid in the body is associated with immunity, high function, and longevity. An abnormal distribution of tissue is associated with susceptibility, low function, and the effects of disease and aging.

A Testimonial for the Program:

“The FLT program helped me reclaim my health and lose the weight I’ve struggled with for over a decade. Lisa’s patience and encouragement never wavered, even when I doubted myself. Her understanding of health and nutrition and her ability to impart that knowledge were paramount in my success with FLT. Lisa is honest, compassionate and firm, yet friendly in her approach. I’m eternally grateful for her support.”
