FirstLine Therapy™ is a clinically-proven lifestyle medicine program, a patient-centered approach for disease management, reduction, and prevention. This customizable program incorporates lifestyle changes such as healthy nutrition, exercise, and stress management. Many practitioners and health organizations believe lifestyle changes should be the first line of therapy in treatment of common chronic conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, and cardiovascular disease. Healthy lifestyle choices can also help improve hormone imbalances and memory, as well as reduce stress and fatigue.
Prevention Is Key
Lifestyle medicine is not only for those already with health problems; the FirstLine Therapy program can help healthy individuals reduce their risk for chronic disease as well as delay the onset of age-related illness. Adopting healthy habits seems like common sense, but not everyone knows where or how to begin. Let Visions and FirstLine Therapy help you determine what lifestyle changes can benefit your well-being.
During an appointment with Juliane Goicoechea, MS, RD, LDN or Jeanned’arc Haddad, RDN, LND, you will be evaluated from head-to-toe using a sophisticated questionnaire that helps her develop this customized plan. This questionnaire serves as a reference point for your improvement, and may also assist the nutritionist in determining which program is right for you.
