Our offices offer injections, that in conjunction with a diet and exercise plan, can aid in weight control
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone produced by the placenta first used by Dr. Albert Simeons for weight loss. HCG helps control the hypothalamus which regulates our hunger and eating behavior. With the help of HCG, the hypothalamus will also release any abnormal fat accumulated throughout the body, making it available for our body to use. Dr. Simeons demonstrated that injections of human hormone selects this abnormally stored fat and mobilizes it into the circulation where it becomes available for use as energy and appetite control. This ensures high loss from the areas of exogenous fat and provides any loss of structural fat. To make sure this happens, you are allowed to eat all you desire up to the third injection. This restores any normal structural fat which may be missing due to attempted dieting. When the dieting begins with continued daily injections, you will lose fat you are storing and do not need.
In order to be successful with the program, patients need to be on a low calorie diet. While on the diet, the patients on HCG will use their own mobilized fat as their source of energy. However, if you are on a low calorie diet without HCG, you may simply starve yourself and have serious consequences. WE DO NOT ALLOW NOR ENCOURAGE A 500 CALORIE DIET. We encourage a daily caloric intake of 800-1000 and will include meal plans to assist you.
HCG is approved by the FDA as a medication for fertility and is also used to safely promote the production of testosterone in males. It is not approved by the FDA for weight loss.
Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain, nervous system and for the formation of blood. It helps maintain a healthy digestive system, protects against heart disease by curbing and improving unhealthy cholesterol levels, protecting against stroke and high blood pressure. Vitamin B12 helps protect against cancers including breast, colon, lung and prostate cancer.
Lipotropic injections are a class of natural ingredients that play important roles in the body’s use of fat. These compounds enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. The main ingredients used to make these injections are Methionine, Choline and Inositol. We recommend (2) injections every 4-7 days for best results.
Methionine is a naturally occurring amino acid which acts as a lipotropic agent to speed up removal of fat within the liver and to prevent excess fat buildup in the body. Methionine also helps prevent or relieve fatigue and aids in prevention of skin and nail problems. Moreover, the amino acid methionine is also a great antioxidant as the sulfur it supplies inactivates free radicals. Studies seem to show benefits for patients with depression, arthritis, pancreatitis, Parkinson’s, and chronic liver disease. Other reported benefits include improvement of skin tone and skin elasticity.
Choline is also part of the vitamin B family. It aids the utilization of fats in the body and supports weight loss. Choline assists in the emulsification of fats and cholesterol in the body by helping to form smaller fat globules in the blood and aiding the transport of fats through smaller channels out of the cells, decongesting the liver of excessive fats. Choline is also helpful for fatigue because when choline is depleted in the body, fat metabolism and utilization may be decreased.
Inositol is part of the vitamin B complex. As a mild lipotropic agent, it aids in weight loss and the redistribution of body fat by breaking down or emulsifying fats in the body. Inositol is also vital for hair growth, and as a component of lecithin helps to prevent high cholesterol and the hardening of the arteries caused by cholesterol buildup. It has also been said to have a calming effect on the nervous system.
LIPO-DEN MAX, our most popular injection, combines Methylcobalamin B12 with Pyridoxine B6 and Carnitine.
Methylcobalamin B12 is the most potent form of vitamin B12 found in nature. We need methylcobalamin for the healthy development and sustenance of our circulatory, immune and nervous systems. Methylcobalamin is the only active form of vitamin B12 in the brain outside the mitochondrion. Pyridoxine B6 is necessary for the production of hydrochloric acid and the absorption of fats and protein. Pyridoxine aids in maintaining sodium and potassium balance, hence is beneficial in controlling water retention.
LIPO-DEN has added Carnitine (L) which makes it even more effective in breaking down fat. Carnitine is the nutrient responsible for the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the energy-producing centers of the cells (mitochondria). It helps the body convert fatty acids into energy, which is used primarily for muscular activities throughout the body.
