First5 Weight Loss Program
First5 is Orthus Health’s sensible and easy-to-follow weight loss and management program. First5 is a 6-week health coaching program, focused on getting members on the right track to lose those first tough 5 pounds.
Members who have completed the program successfully usually lose more than 10 pounds during the 6 sessions and continue to lose more weight beyond program completion.
This is due, in part, to their increased knowledge about nutritional and emotional eating, goal setting, learning how to incorporate healthy eating tips into their daily lives, and adding a practical exercise routine.
Cholesterol Management Program
Members will consider their risk factors associated with not having enough good cholesterol (HDL), as well as the impact of high bad cholesterol (LDL), and triglycerides.
This program is designed to educate on cholesterol, risk, eating a heart healthy diet, creating goals, and exercising to support members in lowering risk for certain chronic diseases and conditions.
This health coaching program educates, helps reduce risk, identifies barriers, and supports members who have a fasting blood sugar reading that is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes.
The 6-session coaching program educates and supports members with blood pressure readings that are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed with hypertension.
The program explains prehypertension in a way that is easy to understand to get participants comfortable with asking questions to their health care providers.
Covering symptoms, risk factors and causes of the condition, our prehypertension program focuses on healthy lifestyle changes that can help improve blood pressure readings.
Tobacco Cessation Program
Our Tobacco Cessation Program meets your employees wherever they are in the quitting process–from just thinking about it to almost there.
Health Coaches tailor the program to match an employee’s unique personality and learning style to help employees quit and stay tobacco free.
Participants use interactive web tools, as well as phone and online coaching support. Health Coaches are accommodating in working with members to schedule sessions at convenient times.
