Marin hCG Diet
Developed by Marin Natural Medicine Clinic, the Marin hCG Diet is based on the work of British physician Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. In the 1950s and 1960s, Dr. Simeon discovered that administration of the hormone human chorionic gonadatropin (hCG) could be combined with a low-calorie diet for dramatic weight loss results. Dr. Simeons treated thousands of patients with this regimen for over two decades at a hospital in Rome, Italy. In recent years, the hCG weight loss program has seen a resurgence due to its efficacy and relative safety.
Using natural hormones to induce weight loss.
hCG is a naturally occurring hormone that all women secrete when they are pregnant. When properly supervised, the use of low doses of hCG can be used safely and effectively to trigger rapid weight loss..
A proven record of success.
Marin Natural Medicine Clinic was the first clinic to provide the medically supervised hCG diet in Marin County. Our physicians have successfully helped hundreds of patients lose weight, and maintain their new weight. We start by understanding your weight management history, ordering blood tests to ensure that it is safe for you to participate in the weight loss program, and determining if there are underlying metabolic issues that may interfere with weight loss.
Unique Benefits of the Marin hCG Diet:
Medically supervised. You meet with your doctor each week for support, regimen adjustments, and acupuncture treatments to enhance metabolism and address possible side effects such as fatigue and constipation.
Rapid weight loss. On average, you can expect a weight loss of one-half to one pound per day. It is common for our patients to lose from 15 pounds in 3 weeks to 25 pounds in a 40-day cycle. Patients complete the necessary number of cycles to achieve their optimal weight.
Lose fat, not muscle. The hCG diet is designed to facilitate loss of fat, not lean body mass.
Patients keep weight off. Patients experience a new weight “set point” after completion of the program so as not to re-gain weight. Our exclusive stabilization phase helps patients keep the weight off!
Improved overall health. Being overweight is associated with many health conditions, including cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure, certain cancers, diabetes, and arthritis. Collectively, these conditions cost Americans billions of dollars each year. When indicated, our doctors successfully help patients reduce or stop specific medications associated with being overweight or obese.
