HCG Program

Home » Fitness » HCG Program

The days are starting to become shorter and the nights are starting to become longer.  This means that soon the summer will be over and fall/winter will be here shortly.  Some people might feel a little dread as this time approaches, but in my clinical experience I have found that this time of year is a great time to focus on wellness care and weight loss.  People have much more routine and regimen in the winter and this is a great time to focus on weight loss plans.

We have implemented a great comprehensive weight loss program at Synapse: Center for Health and Healing called HCG.  HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and when there are increased amounts in the body, the body will utilize fat that is being stored for energy. We have had numerous patients on the program and have noticed amazing results.  The best component of the program is that it taps into fat and toxin storage while preserving muscle mass.  This helps to set up the person for success long-term because the metabolism of lean muscle mass has been maintained while adipose tissue has been lost.  It has now been established that fat tissue is metabolically active tissue.  It acts as a storage site for hormones, toxins, and fat.  Anyone that has struggled with weight loss knows, this makes it harder to lose weight because of the metabolic effect that the tissue has on the body.  Therefore, when actually fat loss occurs, health is drastically improved and weight maintenance becomes easier to accomplish.  HCG is one of the only programs that I have used with patients that promotes a drastic amount of the weight to be from adipose tissue and not breakdown the healthy metabolic lean muscle mass.

The program not only focuses on weight loss but also maintenance.  While on the diet, it is necessary to go on a calorie restriction diet while taking the homeopathic drops.  The HCG causes the body to tap into fat storage for energy during the diet plan.  For safe and effective weight loss, the plan also focuses on supporting the thyroid gland, the master metabolic organ, and the process of detoxification.  For people on the program, we do weekly evaluations that include a body composition analysis.  This makes sure that the weight loss is coming from fat tissue and not muscle mass.  We also individualize the plan for each person since weight loss is not the same for everyone.

Here is a testimonial from a patient that is now on the maintenance phase of HCG.

“I have been on so many “weight loss” programs and was a little leery at first about doing the hCG program. I wanted something more than just losing weight. I have done those programs before and gained the weight back – mainly because my lifestyle had not change. I was looking for something that would impact me for the rest of my life.

The hCG program was exactly what I was looking for. It was different from the very beginning. I went through testing to make sure this was the right program for me. This testing also included identifying my body type so I understood some of my uniqueness’s I needed to be aware of as I started the plan. These uniqueness’s would impact my meal plan and workout routines.

Once all my questions were answered I set up my specific plan with Dr. Meaghan – who was a huge asset during the time I was on the program. (and continues to be) She helped me focus on losing weight the right way. She also helped me find different ways to work  through any “roadblocks” I encountered.

Most importantly for me I was learning how to live a more healthy lifestyle which included food, exercise, and stress relief. I continue to use the key concepts from the program. I feel confident that I will be able to keep the weight off and maintain a healthy lifestyle based on all my learning’s from the program.”
