Keeping You Healthy

RESHAPE YOUR BODY, BURN STUBBORN FAT, RESET YOUR METABOLISM

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) DIET  is a hormone present in both men and women. It has been found to be produced in great amounts in the placenta of pregnant females to aid in the control of vital metabolic functions. In non-pregnant women and men, on-going research is suggesting that HCG similarly increases metabolism similar to a pregnant female by helping the body release calories stored in fat.

The use of HCG for the medical management of obesity is based on the extensive research completed in 1954 by world-renowned physician Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. Dr. Simeons studied extensively and found that in addition to a specific diet, HCG can help safely speed up weight loss. HCG is believed to break down your adipose tissue, causing you to lose inches. At the same time, it protects your body’s good fat and muscle from depleting. This means you can go on a low calorie food plan and lose weight without the typical problems such as muscle loss.

The HCG Program Include:

  • HCG medication
  • Weight loss meal menu
  • Personalized exercises plan based on your needs
  • Program monitoring by our Physician
  • Weekly monitor of vitals, BMI, weight, and measurements
  • Nutritional counsel and caloric track
  • 30 or 40 days take-home kits available

 

APPETITE SUPPRESSANTS affect the appetite-regulating region of the brain called the hypothalamus. They work by blocking the re-uptake of the chemicals serotonin and norepinephrine, which create that feeling of satiety received after eating a big meal. With more of these chemicals circulating in the brain, a feeling of fullness can occur. Appetite suppressants are the cornerstone of the pharmacological approach to treating obesity.

There are a number of anorexiant medications approved by the FDA for weight management. Anorexiants work by changing the way neurotransmitters behave in the brain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals stored in nerve cells that are released when a nerve is stimulated. A neurotransmitter is released from the axon (or end) of a nerve fiber and crosses a very tiny gap between nerve cells (known as the synapse) to stimulate the adjacent cell. Thus, neurotransmitters are chemicals used to create communication between nerve cells, or between nerve cells and other tissues, such as fatty tissue.

The most effective and most commonly prescribed anorexiant medication is Phentermine. It and all other anorexiants available work largely by activating an adrenalin-like neurotransmitter, known as norepinephrine (NE), both within the central nervous system and the sympathetic nervous system. There is some evidence that overweight individuals suffer from diminished baseline sympathetic nervous system activity or sympathetic “tone”. This has the ramification of relatively decreasing the basal metabolic rate of overweight and obese individuals. Consequently, by utilizing sympathomimetic amines one can effectuate an increase in the basal metabolic rate, which can be hugely important for weight loss purposes.

Besides phentermine, this class of medications includes two other notable appetite suppressants known as phendimetrazine and diethylpropion. By using a combination of long- and short-acting compounds, appetite suppression can be effectively experienced for extended lengths of time. An example of such a combination would be the use phentermine in the morning, followed by phendimetrazine or diethylpropion in the late afternoon.

Eating less and moving more are the basics of weight loss that lasts. For some people, prescription weight loss drugs may help. You’ll still need to focus on diet and exercise while taking these drugs, and they’re not for everyone.

Appetite Suppressants Available:

  • Phentermine
  • Diethylpropion
  • Phendimetrazine
  • Phentermine /Topiramate

 

Fat Burning Injections

Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) Injections, also referred to as Lipotropic Injections, are used to help release fat throughout the body by specifically targeting its primary fatty deposits. Lipotropic, or fat burning substances include: 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. Injections can be administered up to twice a week, and vitamin B-12 is purported by practitioners and users to help accelerate metabolic processes, while creating a greater feeling of overall energy. Since lipotropics directly aid in the breakdown of fatty tissue, and are also closely related to B vitamins, when used together, they are thought to intensify each others’ effects and are usually injected together as part of the same treatment injection cycle.

The amino acids that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism. These injections boost the body’s metabolic power by providing a highly effective temporary increase of normal metabolic functions. As soon as the effect of these substances wears off, the body begins to gradually return to its normal metabolic rate. When administered in combination with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise, our Lipotropic formulas can help your body to rid itself of fat, while simultaneously increasing your energy levels both via the fat released energy and the energy promoting properties of vitamin B-12.
