Lifestyle Medicine

Looking at ANY illness or imbalance is Diet & Lifestyle!!

Correct your body composition (lean muscle to fat and water ratios)

Lifestyle choices are also the key to addressing other health concerns and symptoms...

The first line of therapy in looking at ANY illness or imbalance is DIET AND LIFESTYLE!! You may not want to hear that, but if you just get your diet and lifestyle in order, and correct your body composition (lean muscle to fat and water ratios) you yourself will cure most of your illnesses without the need for any medication! Sometimes meds are needed to assist some processes that are imbalanced that are preventing the excess fat from being burned, like Underactive Thyroid or Insulin resistance – these 2 often go hand in hand, and when the one is checked and found low or high, no further  investigations are often done.

I use a specific program called FLT (FirstLine Therapy®) which involves a full medical assessment with blood tests, a body composition assessment, a specialised diet plan and medical or nutriceutical supplementation. The program takes around 12 weeks for most people to reach their targets; weight, body composition and blood levels, however a slightly longer or shorter program may be necessary in individual cases.

Leading health organizations now recommend therapeutic lifestyle change and lifestyle medicine as the “first line of therapy” for treating and reducing the risk of common conditions such as:

Overweight/Obesity

  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Conditions related to aging

Lifestyle choices are also the key to addressing other health concerns and symptoms, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Low sex drive
  • Stress-related symptoms
  • Poor memory or lack of mental clarity
  • And many others

Detoxification programs

Historically, cleansing has always been an integral part of natural healthcare in cultures all over the world. Cleansing (and fasting) is also integrated into spiritual traditions of all kinds. So, here’s why we need to periodically cleanse our bodies:

  • Prevent Disease: toxins lodge deep in the body, weakening organs and making you prone to disease
  • Stimulate Elimination: a cleanse eliminates the waste build up in the colon, enabling our systems to run more efficiently
  • Wipe-out Pain: toxins become crystallized in the body, if not eliminated, they can cause pain – eliminate the source of the problem
  • Increase Metabolism: cleansing helps metabolism become efficient at generating energy and increases the body’s ability to absorb the necessary nutrition from food
  • Lose Weight: as the level of toxins in the body rises, more fat is manufactured to protect the body; removing toxins allows for natural weight loss
  • Increase Energy / Vitality: fatigue is a primary symptom of toxicity, cleansing reduces the body’s excessive workload and liberates energy
  • Purify the Liver: our main detoxification organ (cleans drugs, alcohol, poisons, etc.) can be the source of many health issues – a healthy liver can make all the difference
  • Clarity of Mind: cleansing leads to an open and clear mind and can reduce depression and anxiety
  • Stress Reduction: eliminating old build-up while consuming better quality nutrition allows your body to produce the correct balance of brain chemicals for relaxation
  • Healthy Glowing Skin: skin is the largest organ of your body and has the ability to excrete toxins – using a sauna (or sweating) encourages elimination of toxins through sweat

A proper 7 weeks full medical detox to a 10 day short course, I offer reliable programs that allow for amazing healing results. If you have hit the plateau of weight loss, a detox jumps starts you and gets the engine turning again. Detox programs are essential for continued health and longevity.

If a Fertility patient has undergone many assisted procedures, she may be too toxic to conceive and may need to do a detox program before embarking on any further treatment, chemical or natural. It is a great way to get and stay clean and lean!
