The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirm that more than 72 million American adults are obese which increases individual medical costs by as much as $1,429 annually.
It is now believed that, as many as 33% of all male and female adults are obese in the United States and these figures are moving upwards. This is costing the nation more than $147 billion annually.
But, the costs are not just financial; they are dangerous to your health. For this reason obesity is labeled a disease and can have the following adverse symptoms:
• Heart Disease
• Some Types of Cancer
• Sleep Apnea
• Breathing problems
• High blood pressure
• Affect healthy pregnancies
• Inflamed veins
A number of factors are contributing towards this epidemic, including
• Lack of exercise
• Limited access to healthy stores
• An addiction to junk food
• Increased sugar in our diets
• A community that does not encourage healthy living
States such as Texas, Florida and New York feature, on average, a 25% level of obesity. Other States like Louisiana may be as high as 30-40%.
For this reason a number of hormone treatment strategies have been researched to help fight fat and stimulate weight loss.
Regenx Medical Institute offers biodeintical hormone strategies to combat the growing obesity issue, which is often linked to aging.
After an extensive medical exam, patients may be administered HGH or Testosterone to help build muscle and stimulate weight loss.
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is also an important tool being used to battle obesity, largely because there is anecdotal evidence that it produces results very quickly, sometimes in as little as 30 days.
The treatment first came to the US in 1954 when endocrinologist A.T.W. Simeons published findings that suggested that when an obese subject was subjected to a 500 calorie per day diet combined with HCG injections, a patient could lose up to 1 pound of fat per day.
The general benefits of weight loss hormones include:
• Lose weight quickly
• Not feeling weak anymore
• Not be hungry (curbs appetite)
• Lose fat from those parts of the body where it tends to remain longest during normal dieting (i.e. stomach, hips, thighs, upper arms)
However, the HCG diet has become controversial with a number of agencies declaring it ineffective and sometimes dangerous when pursuing rapid weight loss. Some have called it a reckless, starvation diet, but patients who have undergone HCG weight loss steadfastly support it’s status as a “wonder weight loss drug.’’
HCG can be administered in the form of
• HCG creams
• HCG pills (orally)
• HCG injections
Further media controversy has surfaced around HCG because of illegal sales over the Internet and the failure to be administered to patients as part of a physician-guided program.
Regenx Medical Institute may recommend HCG after an extensive patient medical evaluation at one of our national clinics. Generally, it will be part of a holistic program that also factors in HGH and Testosterone, two critical tools in any HRT program.
