Change Your Health with the Metagenics FirstLine Therapy Metabolic Syndrome Program

The FirstLine Therapy Metabolic Syndrome Program is a professionally supervised, personalized lifestyle modification plan. Designed by healthcare professionals, this program has been shown remarkably successful in helping individuals like you return to a path of extended health.

This is not a weight reduction program — it's a disease reduction program. While weight loss often occurs, it's only secondary to the primary goal helping you achieve and maintain a healthy body composition (lean-muscle-to-fat ratio ) to improve health, manage disease, feel better, and reduce your risk of more serious conditions.

FirstLine Therapy Is different. It's structured with professional supervision to help you:

  • Establish realistic, personalized goals to improve health
  • Monitor your progress and help you stay on track
  • Learn how to eat and shop for healthy, nutritious foods that manage (not increase) cravings
  • Exercise in a way that builds muscle and gets rid of unwanted fat
  • Relax and manage unhealthy stress
  • Feel better and do more!

Lifestyle medicine is a specialized discipline. All FirstLine Therapy healthcare practitioners must undergo an intense certification process.

Most of us are toxic!

Each year, more than 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment, and untold amounts of cancer causing chemicals are found in our food and water; these toxic chemicals can accumulate in your body and affect overall health. Long-term exposure to even small amounts of these substances has been linked to a number of unwelcome health effects. 

Under optimum circumstances, your body is able to rid itself of harmful chemicals and pollutants. In reality, the sheer volume of toxins to which you are exposed overwhelm natural processes and accumulate in your tissues and even your brain. This only compounds itself if you are lacking in proper nutrition, diet and exercise.

We provide a number of detox programs for the liver to ridding the body of heavy metals.
