Live a Healthy Lifestyle in Downtown Chicago IL

More health problems than most people realize are caused by lifestyles such as poor nutrition, lack of exercise, poor sleep, and no stress management. As a society, we also spend the most money and time trying to combat these problems with medication. What if you could reduce your reliance on medication, and possibly not need it at all? First Line Therapy (FLT) programs are designed to identify what is causing health problems, like type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and many other chronic problems. FLT programs have been developed and tweaked over many years, and they continue to be changed based on current evidence and best practices. It’s not a question anymore of how to get healthy or get rid of certain diseases, it’s about implementing the correct methods.

What does a First-Line Therapy program look like?

FLT programs start at 12 weeks and can be as long as 16 weeks. You have an initial consultation with Dr. Schulz about your health history, program details, and what you are trying to accomplish. You may need to provide certain blood test results before the first visit. You will fill out questionnaires that will provide all the information needed to develop a personalized treatment plan. You will be given the materials you need that will guide you through the program. These include a cookbook, dining out guide, and a comprehensive guidebook to help you through the program. We will review the questionnaires and go through in detail what the program entails. We will discuss what expectations you should have, and follow up when you’re finished.

On your second visit, we’ll review bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), vitals, daily food and beverage logs, tracking forms, and your personalized treatment plan.

You will be connected with Monique Costello who is a health coach and lifestyle educator (LE) and is trained to help you establish more specific goals, help with meal planning, exercise recommendations, and establishing calorie needs. You will meet virtually with the LE 6 times over the course of the program, and Dr. Schulz 4 times. Visits with Dr. Schulz with be to redo BIA measurements and edit the treatment plan. We will also be discussing the exercise portion of your LE sessions with Monique. Your 6 sessions with Monique will be
