First Line Therapy Program – Westchester and Rockland NY
Dr. Susanne Saltzman offers her First Line Therapy Program for patents in Westchester and Rockland NY.
Focus on Lifestyle Changes
Obesity and diabetes have reached epidemic proportions in our society and the economic costs to our nation are astronomical. If the current trend continues, one in three children faces a life with diabetes and all of its inherent complications: increased risk of stroke, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, kidney disease, nerve damage, and impaired vision.
Studies show that lifestyle intervention, changing how we live- is a much more powerful intervention for preventing these diseases than any medication.
Chronic inflammation and insulin resistance, often a result of excess body fat, are the primary causes of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Even the onset and reoccurrence of many cancers are associated with excess body fat which produces inflammatory substances that can trigger the growth of cancer cells. This is often the result of a high glycemic, nutrient-poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, chronic stress, and environmental toxins.
Dr. Saltzman uses a science-based nutritional life style intervention program for obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. This program is most effective for decreasing cravings, accelerating fat loss, normalizing blood sugar, and lowering cholesterol. She works diligently with patients to help them lose weight and improve their health and vitality.
Dr. Saltzman’s experience, knowledge, enthusiasm, compassion, and care for her patients are exceptional. She has thousands of patients who have improved their health under her care.
