Dramatically Reduce Your Risk of Chronic Diseases, Lose Fat Permanently, and Live A Happier Higher Quality Life!

Tired of losing and regaining weight?  Tired of aches and pains? Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Do you want answers to your symptoms? Don’t want to take drugs? Need someone who will actually take the time to listen? Are you searching for good health; high energy, mental clarity, a vital sex drive, full function, and absence of disease well into old age? 

What is FirstLine Therapy ™? FirstLine Therapy™ is a “therapeutic lifestyle program”.   A therapeutic lifestyle means making choices every day that will enhance your health, help you lose fat vs weight, and help prevent disease. It can even reverse chronic illness enabling you to achieve a full, healthy life.

Based on Science 

FirstLine Therapy is based on extensive scientific research demonstrating that many of the chronic diseases associated with aging are largely caused by lifestyle choices.  Many of these health problems can be prevented or even treated by adopting a healthy lifestyle instead of trying gimmicks or fads that don’t last.

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Osteoporosis
  • Alzheimer’s disease

Recommended for Health 

A therapeutic lifestyle program is now recommended by leading health organizations as a primary therapy for individuals with many of the conditions listed above, as well as for other health problems such as:

  • Stress-related  disorders
  • Fatigue disorders
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  • PMS
  • Menopause
  • Other hormone-related symptoms
  • Conditions related to overweight and obesity

Nutrition and Lifestyle 

Adopting healthy living habits can delay and prevent the onset of illness in old age and increase your years of good health and full function.  FirstLine Therapy™ will put you on the path to optimal health through a combination of balanced eating, regular progressive exercise, stress reduction, and appropriate nutritional supplementation. The path to optimal health begins with:

  • Knowledge of what a healthy lifestyle means to you
  • Balanced eating habits that fit into your life
  • Regular physical Activity that becomes a habit instead of a chore
  • Stress management for internal balance and optimal fat burning ability
  • Sleep for proper mind/body functioning and whole body healing
  • Appropriate nutritional supplementation with specific nutrients for your needs

All these important components will control premature aging, prevent chronic disease, and prolong vitality.

Getting Started 

In order to measure your progress, you first need to know your current health status. A variety of health assessments may be performed, including a measurement of your body composition and cellular fluid.  Body composition testing will measure the ratio of body fat to lean muscle mass.  Excess body fat can greatly increase your health risk. Conversely, a higher ratio of muscle increases your metabolism and creates a larger source of proteins to fend off illness.  Perhaps the most powerful tool in controlling the aging process and restoring vitality is to improve your muscle to fat ratio by adding more muscle to your body.  This programs focus is not to lose weight, but to improve body composition.  This does not mean it is a “body building” program in the traditional sense of the word.  Nutrition and a healthy diet a long with a simple physical activity plan can greatly improve your ability to increase muscle, maintain muscle and reduce body fat allowing you to meet your goals.

Your personalized program includes:

  • Extensive health assessment and lab review
  • Initial testing and follow up testing
  • Individual consultations focused on giving you the tools and training you need for life
  • Individual food and goal planning for exercise and stress management
  • Weekly or biweekly follow up sessions for more permanent change
  • Recommendations for supportive nutritional supplementation as needed
  • Guide Book for information, support and delicious recipes

What makes FLT different from standard MNT services and Health Coaching?

Hi, I’m Heather Taylor, RD, LD. I consider myself more than a dietitian who provides medical nutrition therapy. I am also certified in FirstLine Therapy and specialize in functional medicine approaches.  I provide lab review and analysis using optimal health ranges instead of standard ranges allowing me to truly address underlying issues. I do not give disease specific recommendations for nutrition, but give functional recommendations. I take the time to fully address you as an entire person, not a disease or symptom. I recognize that you are not made up of separate systems but one whole system with interdependent parts that influence one another. I view health as a web where it is all connected.  The reason you may have a disease or weight issue is most likely due to multiple metabolic imbalances, poor behavioral choices and other underlying dysfunction. I spend extensive time getting to know you in order to truly work towards correcting metabolic imbalances while addressing behaviors. Most of my consultations center around education, goal planning, action steps and barrier removal.

Please take advantage of my consultation time if you’re tired of the same old song and dance, feel like nobody listens, and you need something that actually works,  or if you don’t want to go through the viscous cycle of weight loss and regaining and finally want permanent  change, or if you’re tired of going to the doctors office and not finding out how you can correct your health problem, or if you really want to live a healthier happier longer life!  You can start with a simple BIA (bioimpedience) analysis to get you started.  Awareness is the first step towards change.
