HCG - Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Clinic in Fort Lauderdale, FL
HCG has become a preferred treatment for obesity and weight loss used by physicians around the world.
The combination of a low calorie diet and the HCG injections are believed to help people achieve weight loss by curbing hunger when on a low calorie diet and targeting fat deposits in the body rather than lean muscle mass.
What is HCG?
HCG is a hormone that is produced in women during pregnancy.
It is utilized by the body to protect and nourish the baby by delivering appropriate calories to the placenta using the mother’s stored fat reserves when the mother is not eating enough. HCG in very small doses has been used for decades to successfully treat obesity. HCG targets the stored nutrients and calories in fat cells by liquefying their content. These nutrients are then released into the blood stream in the same way that a mother’s body passes nutrients to her unborn baby. It is believed that this source of natural energy is immediately available to the body and as much as 2000 calories can be released and delivered to the body each day. Fat cells are then drained of their stored contents and shrink to a smaller size. This natural mechanism in the body may also increase energy levels due to the nutrients being taken from the fat cells while curbing the hunger normally experienced when on a low calorie diet.
HCG and Weight Loss
Over 50 years ago Dr. A.T.W. Simeons discovered HCG could be used for the treatment of obesity in men and women.
He found and published his findings that the mechanism of HCG assists in removing stored fat while sparing the lean muscle loss normally present in dieting. HCG forces the body to rid fat through the body’s own elimination process. The HCG protocol includes patients receiving a daily injection of a very small amount of HCG and following a very low 500 to 600 calorie diet. Dr Simeons research findings showed that his patients achieved their weight loss goals without the headaches, hunger pains and fatigue normally associated with very low calorie diets.
