Weight Loss

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Weight Loss Program

The HCG Diet is a physician monitored weight loss program that includes hormone therapy with a food plan. Dr. Albert Simeons, a known endocrinologist, first discovered the use of the hormone HCG for its use in stored fat to nourish and contribute to a healthy baby development. Later on, Dr. Simeons discovered that this hormone could also be used for weight loss purposes when he found that underdeveloped boys, with low testosterone levels, when given hcg injections twice a week, their bodies began to lose fat from the hips and their hunger was suppress to some extent, even when they were on a restricted diet. Dr. Simeons concluded that this hormone allows the mobilization of abnormal fat (fat in the body that is not used for nutritional emergency) to be burned and mobilized to meet other body function needs.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is hormone produced by the placenta of pregnant women. It helps to nourish the egg after it has been fertilized in women. However, this hormone has been used successfully in both women and men as a weight loss method. It is administered as an injection and customized with a low calorie meal plan. This ultimately accomplishes weight loss, appetite suppression, boosts metabolism, and increases energy levels.

Human Growth Hormone

Human Growth Hormone deficiency can lead to weight gain; therefore it is important to rule this as a cause of obesity or abnormal weight gain. If a deficiency is found, then the appropriate mode of treatment will be recommended.

Appetite Suppressants

Appetite suppressants are medications that act on the body’s central nervous system to suppress hunger cravings. These have been used as a short-term therapy to treat people with obesity, however, it is important to consider that effects of appetite suppressants wear off after a few weeks and are associated with some negative side effects, such as increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, sweating, insomnia, and more. 

Therefore is important for any individual to be monitored by a clinician whenever this method of weight loss is considered. Among the appetite suppressants that are prescribed are:

  • Benzphetamine
  • Diethylpropion
  • Mazindol
  • Phentermine / Topiramate

Fat Burning Injections  

Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) Injections, also referred to as Lipotropic Injections, which decreases fatty deposits and speeds up fat metabolism, ultimately enhancing fat removal. The components of lipotropic injections which burn fat are: inositol, which helps the liver remove fat; choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body; and methionine, which is similar to inositol, but also amplifies the combination. In addition to these components, B-12 vitamin and amino acids are also added to help in accelerate the metabolic process. When lipotropic injections are combined with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise, a successful weight loss objective can be achieved.

Nutrient IV Therapy

Nutrient IV Therapy is an effective method of replenishing your body with the essential nutrients and vitamins that it needs; revitalizing the body. Some of the numerous benefits this therapy provides are emotional well-being, increase energy levels, decreases stress and more.

Nutritional Components & Role in Weight Management

Head Hunger: L-phenylalanine

L-Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that is converted to norepinephrine, which plays an important role as a neurotransmitter. These neurotransmitters provide feelings of joy, ambition, alertness and can reduce hunger. L-Phenylalanine has been used in cases of depression, replacing antidepressants very successfully. Phenylalanine usually takes several hours to be converted to norepinephrine in the brain, so the first effects may not be noticeable until some time has passed.

Stomach Hunger: Quick-Fill Capsules

A weight loss aid that contains vitamins, minerals, and a bulking agent to create a feeling of fullness and help curb the appetite. Chromium, an essential trace mineral, has been added to this combination to aid in the metabolism of sugar and other carbohydrates.

Energy Tablet

Korean Ginseng rejuvenates, restores vigor, soothes the intestinal tract, and purifies the blood. Guarana gives high energy and elevates mood. Potassium Gluconate helps regulate water balance in the body. Bee Pollen is a natural source of energy, and is considered the most complete energy food. Niacin, which is part of the B-Complex vitamins, assists in metabolizing carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Folic acid also assists in the breakdown of carbohydrates and fats.

Nutritional Support: Cal Mag

Calcium Carbonate contains the greatest amounts of calcium and is more easily absorbed when taken with a meal. Calcium supports healthy bones and teeth, heart function, nerve transmission and cellular energy production.

Magnesium Oxide is an essential macromineral that increases the effectiveness of calcium, yet on its own is a catalyst for food metabolism and the release of energy. It is also a cofactor in the formation of RNA/DNA, enzyme activation and nerve conduction.
