Obesity on the Rise
According to the Harvard School of Public Health, an estimated two-thirds of the adult population within the United States is overweight or obese. In American children aged 2 to 19, more than 30% suffer from adolescent obesity. With such a large percentage of Americans, adults as well as children, suffering from obesity or categorized as being overweight, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has classified the rise in obesity and weight related conditions as an epidemic.
According to a statement from the National Institutes of Health, “being overweight or obese is not only a cosmetic problem; these conditions greatly raise your risk for other health problems.” These other health concerns include conditions such as:
- Coronary Heart Disease (CHD)
- Heart Failure
- High Blood Pressure
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Sleep Apnea
- Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS)
- Reproductive Complications
How the HCG Diet Can Help
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a specialized hormone that is secreted by the placenta during a woman’s pregnancy. The sole purpose of this biochemical protein-hormone is to locate fat stores throughout the body and break them down for the body’s metabolic activities. Coupled with a low-calorie diet, an HCG diet plan utilizes this special hormone to effectively break down the fat housed within the body’s cavities and restore proper metabolic functioning, optimal health, and dramatic weight loss results. As an HCG diet specialist, Paul Savage, M.D. at Chicago Integrative Care has been successfully treating his patients who have had little or no success with other dieting programs, weight loss supplements, and exercise routines in the past.
One of the most important functions of fat is to provide a means of storing calories (energy) for use by the body in cases of famine or starvation. This is precisely how HCG was discovered in the mid 1900’s by the British physician, Dr. A.T.W. Simeons while treating malnourished pregnant women in India who were able to give birth to healthy babies despite their lack of nutritional intake. Fat itself is not the enemy, and in fact a healthy body will always have a certain percentage of stored body fat. Unfortunately, the levels of body fat most people carry around are higher than what would be considered healthy. Some of these fat stores accumulate in hard to lose areas and can stubbornly hang on through rigorous exercise and diet routines. This stubborn fat is what is targeted first by the HCG hormones, and a patient on an HCG diet plan can expect to lose deposited fat stores from under the chin, arms, stomach and thighs.
The HCG Diet at Chicago Integrative Care
The HCG Diet at Chicago Integrative Care follows the protocols developed originally by A.T.W. Simeon, M.D. at the Salvator Mundi International Hospital, Vatican, Italy in the mid 1970s and as practiced by Doctor C. Marten of Rotten-Ergan, Germany. Typically, this intensive medically supervised weight reducing and body reshaping program provides outstanding results in as little as 4-6 weeks. The features of this program are a well-balanced, low calorie diet and regular injections of HCG that aids in the depletion of abnormal fat stores with virtually no hunger pangs.
With most other weight loss programs, the majority of weight lost is muscle mass and healthy structural fat. This is not the case with the HCG weight loss program! With the HCG Diet the focus is on losing unhealthy stored fats typically found on the thighs, hips, and abdomen. The aim of this medically supervised program is to lose weight while barely disturbing the body’s own protein stores, mainly by depleting abnormal fat deposits, while preserving lean body muscle mass.
Paul Savage, M.D. at Chicago Integrative Care offers individualized treatment plans for men and women that are based off the patient’s medical history, genetics, personal goals, and health concerns. Before beginning the HCG diet, Doctor Savage recommends performing body composition tests, metabolic laboratory testing, and tests to check thyroid hormone, cortisol, and vitamin levels. Depending on each patient’s different health factors, Doctor Savage may recommend supplements, which include B12 injections, multivitamin, and liver support to be taken in conjunction with the HCG Diet. Typical HCG Diet courses last from 6 to 8 weeks, and HCG is delivered in the form of injections or nasal sprays. Paul Savage, M.D. offers continued support to patients through weekly meetings with him in person or on the phone and unlimited phone access. After finishing the HCG Diet, patients will have support in sustaining their weight loss with a 6 to 8 week maintenance program.
