HCG Assisted Fat Loss

30 Day – HCG Rapid Fat Loss Program without the 500 Calorie Diet!

  • Hormone Treatment Centers utilizes injection HCG, full body composition analysis, structured meal planning, and 1 on 1 coaching in order to shelter muscle mass and maximize fat loss. HCG mobilizes stored fat into a usable energy source so patients on a very low calorie diet experience high energy levels and minimizes hunger. The result is a low calorie, high energy fat burning experience. On average our patients experience…
  1. Females metabolize .30 to .80 pounds of stored fat per day 
  2. Males metabolize .80 to 1.2 pounds of stored fat per day

Why is Body Composition Analysis Important with HCG Treatments?

  • Our Best Body Composition program focuses on achieving the optimal body composition for each of our patients. That ideal body composition is derived by determining how much body fat mass, lean muscle mass and total body water should comprise the patient’s weight. ‘Losing weight’ is meaningless and not knowing what kind of weight is being lost during a weight reduction program could actually become unhealthy. We monitor, make adjustments to ensure minimal “muscle wasting” occurs during the course of our treatment. To begin the program we will conduct an examination and cursory screening, review symptoms and medical history the will train you on the use of HCG including how to inject the hormone.

HCG Program Components

  • 6000 IU HCG Kit, (Injectable HCG Hormone, Needles, Swabs)
  • 4 Consults with Coach
  • Meal Plan
  • 4 Body Composition Readings
  • Daily text communications or “as needed” with coach

Program / Dietary Adjustments Based on Individual Performance!

The kind of weight gained or lost is tracked and reported with each consult using one of the most accurate Bio Impedance machines on the market. The reports are easily understood and enable our coaches to target and maximize fat loss, minimize muscle wasting and maintain the highest possible metabolism which is identified as a real number on our reports. Optimizing fat loss requires patient-specific eating plans. These eating plans are derived and changed based upon the patient experience and results. Proper body management programs are not one size fits all meal plan templates but must be tailored to each patient for maximum results. We find that during the low-calorie phase we often adjust meal plans on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.

NOTE: The FDA has not approved Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) for use in the treatment of obesity or to aid in weight loss. Due to the lack of scientific evidence on such unapproved uses of HCG.

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy  “BHRT” for Women All About?

  • As the female body ages, it is increasingly unable to produce healthy levels of the hormones that her younger body once produced. Replacing the deficiency with natural hormones (just like her younger body produced) enables longevity with vitality. Symptoms related to hormone deficiency can be managed and often reversed by restoring the depleted hormones. Women treated for hormone deficiency report feeling younger with restored passion and zest for life.

When Do Perimenopause / Menopause Symptoms Begin? 

  • In our clinic we have seen perimenopause symptoms happen anytime during a women’s natural life cycle but for those that visit our clinics for treatment 39-45 seem to be the standard range.   Often menstrual cycles begin to vary during this period by 7 days or more in consecutive cycles. FSH levels begin to increase slightly while estradiol remains at preserved levels.
  • Symptoms of menopause often begin much earlier during the perimenopause transition at a median age of 47 or (4 to 6) years before a women’s natural menopause occurs. Vasomotor symptoms are most likely to occur up to 2 years after the last menstrual cycle, but this menopause phase lasts 1-6 years after the final menses.  What is happening in the body is the ovaries almost reach follicular exhaustion causing low levels of estradiol to be produced and the follicle-stimulating hormone levels (FSH) to begin to increase.
  • It is not uncommon that other medical conditions associated with aging be confused with perimenopause and menopause symptoms and make the transition difficult to recognize and treat.
  • Symptoms also occur directly and many years after menopause, hysterectomies, and ablations where surgeries and the natural course of the body’s transition leave an increase of FSH levels.
  • Almost all women with a uterus experience changes in their menstrual patterns in the perimenopause and menopause years, as a result of wildly changing hormone levels prior to ovarian follicular depletion.

  • Is the frequency between treatments correct for you body’s metabolism?
  • Are the potential side effects managed appropriately?
  • Are risk factors managed?

What is Testosterone Replacement Therapy “TRT” or “Low T” Treatments for Men all About?

  • As the male body ages, it begins to decrease production of the primary male hormone testosterone. The symptoms of testosterone deficiency are often attributed to aging and therefore not considered by many to be a treatable condition. Testosterone deficiency is treatable with Bio-identical Testosterone (structurally identical to the testosterone the body already produces). Once the condition of testosterone depletion is treated most if of the negative side effects can be managed.
  • Testosterone replacement can be highly effective for men who have the signs of andropause “male menopause” which begins as early as 30 in some. Every patients’ starting hormone levels and symptoms are unique, as well as, their response to treatment. As a result, our medical staff works closely with patients’ to provide unique treatment plans and make appropriate adjustments to optimize the patients blood chemistry.
  • Hormone Treatment Centers employs a philosophy of aggressive empathy in patient care. We understand the negative impact of aging and our work is to reverse as much of those unnecessary and negative age-related issues.   Our first focus is to restore hormonal deficiency that occurs with aging.  Then we then address the symptoms of hormonal depletion.  There is a broad array of symptoms that are alleviated, and many times symptoms are not even associated with hormonal depletion. Our patients report resolution of negative issues in unanticipated areas.  Our patients are far more emphatic respecting the connections of symptom resolution to our treatment than we are.  We are thrilled to restore vital living and healthfully managing the aging process for our wonderful patients.

Common Misconceptions of Testosterone Therapy Treatment!

  • Many Doctors are not specialist in the area of hormone replacement therapy and follow a consistent “One Treatment for All” approach. All patients are different and react individually to dosages. A customized treatment program is needed from a specialist and often changes over time.
  • Many Doctors prescribe dosages to ensure the patient is over the lowest levels on a serum test or blood panel and ignore patient symptoms. Our practitioners review blood panels with great care. Our practitioners also treat the patients and their symptoms. Our objective is to restore the deficiency with the result that the symptoms of deficiency are alleviated.
  • At physiologic treatment levels there is no evidence of any increase risk of prostate cancer. Serum tests of PSA are conducted prior to treatment and at periodic intervals through the treatment cycle.

NIA Research on Male Hormone Treatments with Testosterone

The NIA conducted a study on testosterone in the body where the levels of 108 male patients were raised from 370 to 640 ng/dl for 36 months. Each man, on average, lost six pounds of fat and  increased five pounds of lean muscle over that period. Additionally, there was improvement in bone density. This study demonstrated that a man’s body composition could improve, even if the starting testosterone level (at 370 ng/dl) was above the low-normal range for males.


How Much Does it Cost to Start Testosterone?

TRT is a treatment that is customized to meet your needs. This causes the total cost to vary, and in some cases, you may be able to use your insurance to cover the expenses. At your consultation with the team at Hormone Treatment Centers, we will help you determine the expected cost of your TRT based on your needs. Typical male patients on basic treatment average costs around $150.00-$200 per month.

Is TRT the Same as Steroids?

No, TRT differs from anabolic steroids based on the amount of testosterone used. TRT is used to treat the symptoms of low T, whereas anabolic steroids are used in much higher doses to help achieve muscle building faster and more efficiently.

What Are Normal Testosterone Levels? 

Your testosterone levels are measured through blood testing. Many doctors agree that normal testosterone levels fall anywhere between 300 – 1,200 nanograms per deciliter.

How Do I Start Taking TRT?

TRT is administered through an injection weekly or through pellet insertions every 90 days.

Does TRT Shorten Your Life? 

TRT does not shorten your lifespan. TRT may actually lengthen your lifespan by reducing coronary artery disease, reducing the risk of Type II diabetes, and helping to reduce visceral fat. TRT can also boost your quality of life by increasing your energy, boosting your sex drive, and helping you achieve and maintain erections.

How Long Does TRT Last For?

TRT injections will last around 7 days when testosterone cypionate.

Does Low Testosterone Cause ED?

Low Testosterone can cause ED. With TRT, you may restore your ability to have healthy erections.

Are There Non-Opioid, Non-Pharmaceutical Pain Treatment Options Available?

The Hormone Treatment Centers offers a Non-Opioid, Non-Pharmaceutical pathway to Pain Recovery. We believe, we can help a patient without reliance on controlled narcotics/opioids for the control of pain and we certainly realize that there is a public health and regulatory and societal concern with the continued reliance and perpetuation of these controlled substances as “first line” treatment for acute and chronic pain conditions and therefore seek and are committed to “an alternative strategy.”

Pain and Injury Recovery Treatment Options in Kansas City!

To look at the patient from a “holistic and comprehensive standpoint”–which may and will likely include an evaluation of their metabolic, physiologic, hormonal, emotional, and physical state so as to determine the extent to which these factors have a role in the perpetuation of the patients pain state.

Focus on a non-narcotic, rehabilitative, nutritional, metabolic balance program, in order to facilitate the patient to regain and perhaps exceed their prior level of function.

Our goals are restorative, rehabilitative, maintenance of hormonal and physical balance–which we believe is key to a patient’s emotional and spiritual well-being. The continued use of controlled substance we believe is an impediment to that in many aspects. We believe we have a better way!!!

Testosterone for Pain Treatment

  • Due to its critical physiologic functions in pain control, testosterone testing and replacement should be a principal component in the treatment of chronic pain. A deficiency impairs healing and control of inflammation at peripheral pain sites. In addition, low testosterone levels can cause depression, sleep disturbances, and lack of energy and motivation which can impact the healing process.. Click for more info…
