Hormone Injection for Weight Loss
Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone produced by the placenta when a woman is pregnant. It can help to break down the fat in your body, and when used as a hormone injection for weight loss, can maintain your muscle while restarting your metabolism.
Hormone Injection Therapy Weight Loss
Our hormone weight loss therapy treatment is a customized 12-week plan which includes weekly visits with your VIVA Wellness Nurse Practitioner to adjust your dose as needed, daily injections (at home) of the hormone, and a specific diet and maintenance plan to optimize your results. Our clients have seen up to a 30 lb weight-loss over the first 40 days of the program.
What is hCG for weight loss?
Used in our hormone weight loss therapy, hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a natural hormone that the body makes during pregnancy. Beyond that, it has very little to do with pregnancy and can be effective for weight loss in both women and men. When used along with a customized low-calorie diet can help you lose as much as a pound a day without feeling hungry.
Does hormone weight loss therapy (hCG) work?
Yes. We've seen our clients lose a lot of weight and reach their goals while working with our nurse practitioners. That really is the key: our nurse practitioners work with our clients throughout the entire process to help them succeed. One of our nurse practitioners, Jennifer Hruz or Rachel Betthauser, meet personally with each one of our hCG weight loss clients and guide them throughout the entire program.
Can I get hCG over-the-counter?
You may see some products claiming to include hCG in various health stores, but these are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VIVA Wellness hormone injection therapy for weight loss utilizes hCG shots, which are only allowed when prescribed by a health care provider, such as our nurse practitioners.
Is hCG still available for weight loss?
Yes, but it will soon be very hard to get. In March of 2020, the FDA reclassified hCG as a biologic. This change in classification means that compounding pharmacies, where all weight loss clinics order their hCG, would no longer be able to produce hCG because it requires the pharmacy to gain different licensure granted by the FDA. This saddens us, as we've seen such success among our clients. (Read our announcement.) But, we have planned head and ordered a supply for VIVA Wellness clients—we have it.
