HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin is produced during pregnancy. DR ATW Simeon used developed and worked with HCG with The HCG diet protocol for over 20 years. He found that utilization of small amounts of HCG helped reset the hypothalamus and caused fat loss from unwanted areas. This is detailed in his manuscript POUNDS and INCHES. The use of HCG for optimization of metabolism is an off-label use. It is currently used to treat some cases of infertility and some select hormone imbalances.

In our practice we utilize the original Dr Simeon’s original HCG protocol as well as an adaptation called HCG 2.0 by Dr Zach Laboube. The protocol is preceded by a 7-day detox plan to enhance efficiency of the protocol. The choice of either the original protocol or the adaptation will be individualized based on individual Patient Profile and Characteristics after careful consideration of their metabolic profile. The Caloric restriction that we utilize in our protocol is based on the patients’ basic metabolic rate that is calculated with bio-impedance analysis done with our state of the art SECA body composition analyzer.
