HCG Diet & Medical Weight Loss Program
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a naturally occurring hormone that aids in the fat burning process. HCG is also highly effective at normalizing stress hormones including cortisol. Our patients have experienced incredible results with our HCG Diet & Weight Loss Program.
How does HCG work?
The HCG diet was originally developed by A.T.W. Simeons to aid clinically obese patients in quickly returning to a safer weight zone to avoid serious health conditions. Research of 40 years and thousands of cases conducted by Dr. Simeons has led to the concept of the HCG diet, which is meant to be a healthier interpretation and implementation of weight loss rather than the purely cosmetic, “fad” diets of today. His results have been heralded in medical journals spanning the globe. His findings are published in a book entitled “Pounds and Inches”. The HCG diet is meant to promote a healthier lifestyle through careful consideration of portion sizes and nutritious value of food.
The HCG diet involves daily injections combined with a very low calorie diet in order to reset one’s metabolism and aid in long term weight loss. In order to understand how the diet works, it is important to understand that fat is not just fat – there are actually three different kinds of fat in the human body.
• Structural fat surrounds our vital organs, keeps our skin smooth and taut, and gives us the cushion on the bottoms of our feet. Extra of this type of fat in our body does NOT cause obesity.
• Normal fat is the fuel that the body draws from when needed. It is found all over our body and is not responsible for obesity.
• Abnormal fat is the type of fat that accumulates and is deposited all over the body and accumulates in the areas that we typically don’t exactly like (hips, buttocks, stomach, arms, etc).
When calories are severely restricted (without HCG), the body first burns normal fat, then structural fat, and only then is the abnormal fat burned. Usually by that time, a dieter feels awful and has abandoned any type of diet all together, leading to a vicious cycle.
HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a water based hormone that is produced by a woman’s body during pregnancy. During this time, a woman is able to tap into the abnormal fat reserves for fuel while protecting their structural fat. This is part of a defense a mother’s body has to protect the vital organs of herself and her baby while pregnant.
HCG is used in extremely low doses for weight loss. During pregnancy a woman produces as much as one million international units (IU) of HCG per day. The HCG diet injection is 125 IU per day. HCG is also used at much higher doses when used for fertility purposes. While HCG at weight loss doses does not directly increase fertility, weight loss has been proven to increase fertility. While on HCG, it can cause a false positive pregnancy test in urine only.
Cortisol & Adrenal Function And Weight Loss
Cortisol is a life sustaining adrenal hormone essential to the maintenance of homeostasis. Called “the stress hormone,” cortisol influences, regulates or modulates many of the changes that occur in the body in response to stress including, but not limited to:
- Blood sugar (glucose) levels
- Fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism to maintain blood glucose (gluconeogenesis)
- Immune responses
- Anti-inflammatory actions
- Blood pressure
- Heart and blood vessel tone and contraction
- Central nervous system activation
Cortisol levels normally fluctuate throughout the day and night in a circadian rhythm that peaks at about 8 AM and reaches it lowest around 4 AM. While it is vital to health for the adrenals to secret more cortisol in response to stress, it is also very important that bodily functions and cortisol levels return to normal following a stressful event. Unfortunately, in our current high-stress culture, the stress response is activated so often that the body does not always have a chance to return to normal.* This can lead to health problems resulting from too much circulating cortisol and/or from too little cortisol if the adrenal glands become chronically fatigued (adrenal fatigue).
Higher and more prolonged levels of circulating cortisol (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as:
- Impaired cognitive performance
- Dampened thyroid function
- Blood sugar imbalances, such as hyperglycemia
- Decreased bone density
- Sleep disruption
- Decreased muscle mass
- Elevated blood pressure
- Lowered immune function
- Slow wound healing
- Increased abdominal fat, which has a stronger correlation to certain health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body. Some of the health problems associated with increased stomach fat are heart attacks, strokes, higher levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and lower levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL), which can lead to other health problems.*
Chronically lower levels of circulating cortisol (as in adrenal fatigue) have been associated with negative effects, such as:
- Brain fog, cloudy-headedness and mild depression
- Low thyroid function
- Blood sugar imbalances, such as hypoglycemia
- Fatigue – especially morning and mid-afternoon fatigue
- Sleep disruption
- Low blood pressure
- Lowered immune function
