If I only want to lose 10 pounds, do you have a plan for patients who are not extremely overweight?
Yes, we do! Any patient can do the HCG weight loss plan and we have natural appetite suppressants that can be used.
Can I do the weight loss program if I have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medications?
Yes, we have many options for patients with high blood pressure. If blood pressure is controlled with medication appetite suppressants maybe an option. HCG is always an option for patients with high blood pressure due to the fact that it is not a stimulant medication and it will have no impact on the blood pressure.
Can I do the weight loss program if I am a diabetic on insulin or other medication?
Yes, our program can be combined with insulin and other diabetic medications without any complications. Patients can even sometimes reduce insulin use after starting our program.
Do you take insurance for weight loss?
Unfortunately, most health insurance plans do not cover alternative weight loss services. However, we can provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
What sets your approach to weight loss apart from others?
We believe in helping patients lose weight while maintaining health and teaching healthy eating. Weight loss is not a one size fits all, which is why our physician evaluates each patient so that we can not only help you lose the weight but also get to the root of the problem.
How is your HCG program different from others? Do you have oral HCG?
Our HCG protocol is different because we do not follow a 500 or 800 calorie protocol. We want our patients to eat a balanced healthy diet by eating 3 meals a day and 2 snacks. We do have oral HCG but it is prescription strength and cannot be purchased without a prescription. Most of the HCG drops on the market do not even contain actual HCG. Make sure to see a physician before starting HCG and make sure to only get HCG from a licensed pharmacy.
How often do you take the HCG Injections or Troche (dissolvable tablet)?
HCG injections are done daily every morning. The HCG Troche is taken once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
Why should I consider hormone replacement therapy?
Many people suffer from symptoms that are caused by an imbalance in the hormones. Even a very slight hormone imbalance can cause a variety of symptoms such as depression, hair loss, weight gain, night sweats, loss of sex drive, and more. Once patients start a hormone replacement program they feel 100% better within the first few weeks.
What is the process for becoming a hormone or testosterone replacement patient?
First, we send patients to have lab work completed so that we can determine exactly what is needed for each patient. Then we schedule an office visit in person with our physician to go over all of the lab work and design an individualized plan. After that the medications are shipped to your home monthly for the rest of the year, unless you desire to make changes to your program.
