HCG Weight Loss Treatment

DeBruin Medical Center offers patients effective weight loss treatments which combine small regular doses of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) and a specific restricted-calorie diet to release abnormal fat and return the body to a healthy condition.

What is HCG?

HCG is a natural hormone that is typically produced in large quantities during pregnancy to ensure proper nutrients to the developing baby. In smaller doses HCG has been found not only to curb the appetite but in conjunction with a specific 500-800 calorie per day diet to reset the metabolism, protect the body’s “good fat” and keep muscle tissue from breaking down while the body is purged of unhealthy static fat.

How does HCG work?

DeBruin Medical Center combines a customized low calorie diet with specific medical dosing of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). The HCG is a hormone that is made by the body during pregnancy. It is a natural, protein hormone that acts as a precursor in the bodies of both men and women to produce hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid hormones. The act of stimulating these hormones in very low levels appears to help the body sustain lean body mass while dieting.

The HCG hormone is administered as an injectable. The tiny needles are basically painless and extremely easy to self administer. The method is the only proven method to get HCG into the bloodstream. DeBruin Medical Center will walk you through the process and ensure that you are 100 precent comfortable upon initiation of the program.

Your diet will be customized based on your current weight, BMI, age, sex, and weight loss goals. Your weight loss team will generate your diet plan and counsel you on the initiation and progress of your diet. Every aspect of your weight loss program, though based in certain similar principles, is personalized.
