Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that is primarily associated with pregnancy and which was popularized by the famous HCG diet by Dr. Simeon (see below). HCG is an analog of luteinizing hormone (LH), the hormone that the brain produces to stimulate ovulation in women and testosterone production in men.
At JativaMD, we use HCG for two purposes:
For men, HCG is used in conjunction with or as an alternative to testosterone supplementation. If your testosterone level is low, we can use two approaches to get it back up to healthy levels so that you feel your best. We can give you direct injections of testosterone which will quickly get your levels back up, but in some cases this may cause your own production of testosterone to drop, since the body thinks that it has enough testosterone already from the injections. On the other hand, HCG indirectly raises testosterone levels because it acts like luteinizing hormone, the hormone which causes the testes to produce testosterone. By stimulating your body to produce its own testosterone, HCG will raise your levels in a more natural way compared to injections alone. This can be used in combination with testosterone injections to prevent a decline in sperm count and fertility. Once you come to your appointment, we will determine the right testosterone therapy for you. This can be done with testosterone injections alone, HCG alone, or with a combination of testosterone and estrogen. Dr. Jativa will perform a thorough medical history and physical examination and review your labs in order to determine the best therapy for your individual needs.
For both men and women, we use HCG as part of the famous HCG diet popularized by the eminent British physician Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons. The results of this diet are well known around the world with fantastic results; patients lose on average around 10% of their body weight in about one month. In conjunction with a low calorie diet, the addition of HCG will specifically encourage your body to burn excess fat instead of muscle. This is a healthier and more sustainable loss of weight compared to dieting alone, which usually causes loss of valuable muscle mass.
Benefits of the HCG diet include:
Once you come to our consultation, the team at JativaMD will be able to establish if you are a candidate for the use of this hormone. We use only the highest quality pharmaceutical grade HCG injections. We do not endorse the use of homeopathic drops, troches, or other preparations that are not prescribed by a physician. We will monitor your progress carefully and give you our full support to help you meet your weight loss goals.
