Weight Loss Program
Are you looking to lose weight and improve your quality of life through lifestyle changes? Firstline Nutrition facilitates a medically supervised 12 week program. This is ideal for reducing your risk of developing chronic disease and can help minimize inflammatory responses from being overweight. A personalized assessment and body composition testing is included in this program.
Body Composition Testing
Body composition testing is an accurate way to measure body fat, lean muscle mass, and bone density. It is a useful tool in evaluating your level of physical fitness. Because muscle takes up less space than fat, it’s difficult to assess body composition based on the way we look or even how much we weigh. At Firstline Nutrition, we offer gold standard body composition testing that can determine your body’s leanness and help you track your progress over time.
What we eat is one of the biggest contributors to our overall health. Balancing our nutritional needs is an important component of achieving a healthy body composition. At Firstline Nutrition, will assess your unique nutritional profile. There’s no need to count calories! Our expert practitioners will educate you on fats, proteins and carbohydrates, and empower you to make lifestyle changes to enhance your health and wellness.

Human Growth Hormone
Hormones are responsible for the aging and maturing processes our bodies undergo. Human growth hormone (HG) regulates growth and chemical reactions in the body, and imbalances can result in a variety of symptoms. Low levels of HG lead to decreased energy and strength, and even depression. They can also be responsible for increased levels of body fat and deteriorating muscle. A simple test can tell us about your levels of human growth hormone and help us create a nutritional plan for you to restore balance.
Male Endocrine Hormone Testing
A number of conditions are associated with an imbalance in these hormones, which include cortisol, DHEA, estradiol and testosterone. Lab testing will enable us to identify imbalances and suggest the right supplements for you. This is an especially important test for men who are experiencing erectile dysfunction or problems related to an enlarged prostate.
Female Endocrine Hormone Testing
Women may experience unpleasant symptoms associated with fluctuating levels of endocrine hormones, including cortisol, progesterone, estradiol and testosterone. Lab testing can identify imbalances and help us suggest the right supplements for you. This is an especially important test for women who are entering perimenopause or menopause.
Essential Elements Test
Certain elements are critical for good health, while others can be toxic. For example, potassium and sodium maintain good heart function while calcium and magnesium are essential for strong bones. Heavy metals, on the other hand, are potentially toxic and can impair absorption and assimilation of nutrients. An essential elements lab test can identify deficiencies and excesses, and enable us to recommend the right supplements to restore balance essential for good health.
Thyroid Endocrine Test
Thyroid hormones are responsible for all aspects of metabolism. Conventional blood tests indicate normal serum levels that may not be optimal for your health. At Firstline Nutrition, we offer a simple urine test as alternative means of measuring thyroid function. This can help us identify imbalances that may be causing poor thyroid function, and help you restore levels for optimal performance.
