HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone present in all humans.  In pregnant women, it is produced in the early stages of pregnancy to control metabolic function.  Research suggests that it also increases the metabolism and promotes lipolytic activity for non-pregnant men and women.

First discussed in a report published by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in 1954, the use of HCG as a diet aid has seen rapidly increasing public interest in recent years. Typically, the HCG diet is a combination of low calorie diet coupled with the use of daily subcutaneous injections of HCG.  HCG is also used increasingly to stimulate testosterone production in male patients.

In this 1-hour live webinar, Doctor Erika Schwartz will share her clinical experience with HCG and the physician supervised HCG diet, including:

  • Achieving weight loss results ranging between .5 to 2/lbs. per day during 23 to 47 day cycles.
  • HCG’seffectiveness as a CNS appetite suppressant and a lipid dissolver.
  • Delivery methods and lowest effective doses for weight loss.
  • Reported side effects.
  • The importance of making the HCG diet part of complete program of diet, exercise, lifestyle, hormone and nutritional supplementation for long-termweight maintenance.
