Whether there are high, average, or low levels of thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s, euthyroid, hypothyroidism), most patients complain of hypothyroidism-like symptoms than any other type of thyroid problems. Hypothyroidism is commonly under-diagnosed and under-treated. This is because conventional doctors and physicians believe that these patients are healthy as long as their hormone levels (specifically thyroid stimulating hormone “TSH”) are just within the so-called “conventional” boundaries of laboratory reference ranges.
HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone naturally produced in the body. It is commonly known as the “pregnancy hormone.” This hormone allows the body to metabolize fat and use it as energy on an rainy day, for both the mother and fetus while preserving lean muscle mass. HCG acts as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately.
Here is our explanation, based on our research. By patient report and feedback, HCG reduces feelings of hunger. This allows them to eat very little comfortably. Why? It is believed the presence of HCG in the bloodstream takes the appetite away. In pregnant women, HCG often causes feelings of nausea in the early stages of pregnancy.
HCG is a pro-hormone which helps the body make more hormones. Since hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reason for weight gain, whether it’s your thyroid, or menopause (or andropause), this hormone offers help.
HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.
