Long-lasting success with weight loss often requires a little scientific help with FirstLine Therapy. The composition of your body–muscle, fluids, fat–helps us understand how to support you in your progress towards a healthier you. Through regular in-office body composition readings we can discover more about how your body uses, stores and converts what you eat for energy with our Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA) machine. Our BIA machine also gives us your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), or the amount of calories you burn in a day if you do nothing. Your BMR is an essential tool for establishing a diet plan that will support a healthy weight loss program.
Start 2019 with Health-Centric Goals
Most of us could use a little help shedding some unwanted pounds and creating a trimmer, healthier body. Patients of Balanced Well-Being Healthcare get the support they need for success with our FirstLine Therapy (FLT), 12-week program.
Research shows that diets don’t result in long-term success. What you really need is lifestyle modification. When we address the foundation of what we eat, when we eat, why we eat we can better understand what needs to be changed to support healthy goals.
If you are at risk for chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, you NEED this program. These conditions put you at much greater risk for heart disease–the leading cause of death for both men and women, according to the CDC.
Recent research also shows how fat fuels cancer. Healthy lifestyle changes that reduce the amount of unhealthy fat in your body can not only improve your quality of life, but also reduce the risk of you falling into the clutches of life-threatening disease.
Identify Your Needs
Patients of Balanced Well-Being Healthcare’s FLT program start with an individualized treatment plan that is initiated with a 90-minute in-office visit with our nutritionist. During this time, our nutritionist will help you identify areas that need improvement using data from your blood work as real benchmark and to help screen for any underlying diseases.
Healthy Weight Loss Program is Based on Science
What makes the FLT program succeed where others fail is that it is based on science. FLT founders, Metagenics, has the largest scientific staff in the nutrigenomics industry. Their research has been published in peer-reviewed journals and has awarded them more than 50 international or domestic patents, reports Business Wire.
“Science has played a key role in the development of the Healthy Transformation Weight Loss Program, and the results of this clinical research demonstrate the success of our approach,” said Joseph Lamb, MD, Director of Intramural Clinical Research at Metagenics in Business Wire. “We believe this program offers a clear advantage for patients who may have tried other programs and failed to achieve desired results.”
Improve your gastrointestinal health, autoimmune disorders, osteoporosis, hormonal imbalance and mood issues by addressing how you are fueling your body each day.
Treatment Tailored to YOUR Needs
Efficacy of treatment needs precise data–your data. Blood work ensures that your FLT program is engineered for YOUR body’s individual needs. Our 12-week weight loss program is not a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits all approach which is why it produces long-term results. The goal of FLT isn’t just weight loss, although that happens naturally with the program. The goal is lifestyle management and the integration of healthy habits for healthy living.
What Does Blood Work Test?
The specific information that we draw for your blood work to design your treatment panel includes the following panels:
- Extended lipid panels looking at LDL particle numbers and size
- Inflammatory and oxidative stress markers
- Vitamin D analysis
- Full hormonal panels including thyroid and sex hormones
- Full vitamin, mineral, amino acid, antioxidant markers, genetic markers for methylation and cholesterol metabolism
Following your initial meeting with our nutritionist, you will have six return visits so work on body composition, meal planning, recipe planning, meal replacement options, and education to help you drive your success.
