Welcome to the FirstLine Therapy Program at Whole Life Health Care!
We are thrilled you are interested in making the important decision to begin a therapeutic lifestyle modification program.
This 12 week program, called “FirstLine Therapy” designed by Metagenics, focuses on a modified Mediterranean diet, exercise, stress management and a prescription medical food.
FirstLine Therapy is very different from today’s common medical approach. This treatment plan creates a balanced and manageable healthy lifestyle to clearly identify and overcome causes of ill health and improve total body function naturally by nourishing, balancing, and revitalizing the whole inflammatory response, insulin resistance and cardio-metabolic disease.
Our patients are able to decrease body fat and increase lean muscle mass, decrease hip and waist circumference, lower fasting insulin and hemoglobin A1C levels, and decrease subjective symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain and digestive issues among many others. It is powerful, effective and rewards you with improved health and function that is long lasting!
This program might be covered by your insurance company. We encourage you to call our office for any questions or concerns you may have about getting started!
As part of our program you will have the opportunity to meet with Nutritionist, Melissa Snow, RD, LD, who is a certified FirstLine Therapy nutrition educator. You will also check in monthly with one of our Practitioners to discuss any challenges that may arise and to keep you motivated to make healthy and manageable changes to your dietary habits.
Moving more is a big part of FirstLine Therapy. At your follow up appointments, we will discuss how to add exercise to your daily routine, or to make the program you are going more efficient!
Learning to manage stress is a lifelong skill. As an integrative practice, we have access to mental health counselors and other professionals who can help with alleviating stress: a massage therapist, acupuncturist and reiki masters among others.
Part of what makes FirstLine Therapy so successful is the anti-inflammatory medical food that helps to lower the risk for chronic disease. Providing nutritional support through a delicious shake or snack bar, “Ultrameal” is not a meal replacement as it is in addition to your healthy, balanced diet.
