hCG Injection for Weight Loss

hCG Injection For Weight Loss and Resetting Basal Metabolic Rate

dieting-forkHuman Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) for weight loss is not a new concept. It has been used in Europe for over 30 years and is based on the work of Dr. A.T. Simeon. hCG is produced by the body during pregnancy and has historically been used in the treatment of fertility and as an adjunct in testosterone replacement therapy. According to Dr. Simeon, hCG in the treatment of obesity helps to mobilize non-essential fat, decrease hunger pain, and reset the metabolic rate by its effects on the pituitary and thyroid gland. Based on Simeon’s research, individuals lose roughly one pound each day and 85% do not gain the weight back.

Dr. Simeon’s work is very controversial and strikes a chord in the multi-billion dollar diet industry. We did a review of the literature and found no statistical difference in weight loss between hCG plus low calorie diet and just a low calorie diet. Initially, this was disappointing. However, the hCG group did not gain as much weight back on follow up and reported better well being and less hunger. It must be kept in mind these were small studies.

Due to the controversy and reported benefits we began using hCG in a select group of patients and the outcomes are promising. Patients have lost an average of just under ¾ pounds per day, many patients have reported feeling “very good” or “great” on the program, and most have not seen a return of weight.

A 28 day Metabolic Detox must be completed before starting the hCG protocol. This program is available here at the clinic.
