First Line Therapy (FLT)
FLT is a therapeutic lifestyle change program that targets the underlying cause of chronic illnesses by incorporating a specialized eating plan, exercise, nutritional supplements and stress management.
FLT uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) to assess your body composition. BIA measures body fat in relation to lean body mass. Altered body composition can significantly increase your risk to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more. BIA measures the fluid inside and outside of your cells along with the potential for inflammation in body tissues. One of the most powerful tools in controlling the aging process and restoring vitality is to improve your muscle-to-fat ratio. Your BIA results help guide your treatment protocol and your progress.
