MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
Losing weight can be an extremely difficult goal to achieve!!! Over 1/3 of adults living in the United States are obese. The sedentary work place, poor food choices, and overall lack of daily movement, continues to fuel the United States obesity rate!
We will go through ALL options appropriate for you at your consultation!
MANY patients are lacking essential vitamins and minerals which enable them to lose fat and KEEP off the pounds. Our bodies require proper nutrition and vitamins to stimulate the CORRECT hormones to function smoothly. When these hormones are functioning properly, then our bodies will let go of the fat stores it’s been holding onto for TOO long!
LIPOTROPIC (FAT LOVING) INJECTIONS:
THIS IS NOT RELATED TO LIPOSUCTION (Surgical procedure, which removes excess fat.).
These injections contain a solution of nutrients that are made up of one or more of the following fat burning compounds: Amino acid (proteins) examples include choline, inositol, methionine, glutamine, carnitine, arginine, leucine, and ornithine.
Important B vitamins for energy metabolism include: Thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), Cobalamin, (B12), and folic acid. These also help with carbohydrates, fats, and protein metabolism.
Combining fat burning amino acids and B vitamins together, as well as an important mineral, which improves blood sugar regulation, and overall metabolism, creates a synergistic cocktail. We call this synergistic cocktail LIPOLEAN. This has similarities to the “Skinny Shot.”
B1, B6, folic acid, and B12 decrease the risk of heart disease by keeping homocysteine, an amino acid in our blood, as low as possible.
Deficiencies in vitamin D3, selenium, zinc, and magnesium can diminish our energy and contribute to muscle, spine, and joint pain- the kind that keeps us from MOVING as we should.
These injections enhance weight loss when they are combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.
BENEFITS OF LIPOTROPIC INJECTIONS:
REDUCE STORED FAT
ENHANCE METABOLISM DURING FAT BURNING PROCESS
INCREASE ENERGY LEVELS
IMPROVE FUNCTION OF LIVER AND GALLBLADDER
PRESERVE LEAN MUSCLE
RAPID ONSET OF ACTION
GREAT ABSORPTION OF ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS
IMPROVES LIVER DETOXIFICATION
IMPROVES MOOD AND CLARIFY
Injections are administered in office one to three times weekly.
FAT REDUCTION is typically 1-3 pounds/week.
Weigh in is done weekly in office. Measurements are taken monthly. Food intake, calories, and exercise are monitored.
hCG or HUMAN CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN INJECTIONS:
hCG is a hormone that supports and aids normal functions in both the male and female’s reproductive systems. High levels of hCG are extracted from the placenta of pregnant females which then serves the health, weight loss, and fertility of men and women across the nation.
If you are being treated for ACTIVE OVARIAN CANCER, then, unfortunately, it is not safe for you to be treated with hCG.
Nichole’s BEFORE hCG protocol picture is on the RIGHT. AFTER hCG protocol picture is found BELOW. Nichole lost > 50lbs since her 2 rounds of the hCG protocol. She has not gained back what she lost! Her metabolism indeed reset because of hCG. Other patients have successfully completed the hCG protocol. Others will continue to have success going forward.
Excess fat is commonly stored in areas, for example: the hips, thighs, neck, face, back of upper arms, and stomach. It is this excess fat, that is targeted by hCG. This is a SAFE protocol when used with supervision. Administering hCG injections, in conjunction with consuming a low calorie diet, results in mobilization of excess fat. This causes rapid and sustainable fat loss!! NO MUSCLE IS LOST AS A RESULT OF THIS PROTOCOL. ONLY EXCESS FAT IS LOST! This separates this protocol from all other diets.
hCG treatment is designed to work by restricting your diet to as low as 500-800 calories per day
AFTER your hCG protocol has been completed, minimal, healthy intake encourages 1,200-1,400 calories per day. Daily caloric consumption includes small portions of FRESH protein, fruit and vegetables that are consumed at several times throughout the day. AVOID CANNED AND FROZEN FOODS. EAT FOODS YOU CAN TOUCH (ie no boxed items). Sugars and starches should NOT be introduced until 3 weeks following the course of hCG injections. As a result of undergoing the hCG protocol, your metabolism will reset itself. You should see improvements in other areas (high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, etc.)
You must be comfortable with administering subcutaneous (just below the skin) injections DAILY for 40 days. IF you are not comfortable with this, someone with whom you trust, must be capable of safely performing your daily injections at the SAME TIME daily.
More fat is lost through hCG protocol than with B vitamins and amino acids alone. Range 10-40 pounds. Men tend to lose more with the protocol than women.
Accountability Weekly Visits: Weigh in and measurements are obtained in office. Vital signs are checked at each visit. Food intake, calories, and exercise are monitored too.
Testosterone (Hormone Replacement Therapy)
Reduction in circulating levels of FREE testosterone (testosterone which is not bound to hormone receptors in our bodies), NOT TOTAL testosterone, has been linked to increased abdominal fat and decrease in lean muscle mass in many patients. It's NOT USED DIRECTLY for weight loss but works synergistically with B vitamins, amino acids, and hCG , when there are no contraindications, such as prostate cancer..
Testosterone can be replaced via “pellet”or (plant based natural grain) therapy or topical cream route. NEVER use synthetic testosterone products . Pellets are less than 2cms in diameter and are placed via a trocar into the very anesthetized subcutaneous (fat) tissue of the buttock in women or abdomen in men. Testosterone pellet dissolves over 5 days in the fat with the end result of not only excess fat reduction and increased lean muscle mass but ALSO increased energy, better mood, increased sleep architecture, decreased menopausal hot flashes, increased libido, etc.
Men may need to repeat this therapy every 9-12 months.
Women may need to repeat this therapy every 3-6 months.
