The Skinny on HCG Weight Loss

HCG Weight Loss in West Palm Beach

The HCG Weight Loss program is more than just fast acting, it helps actually curb appetite and enhance fat burning capabilities (in conjunction with maintaining a low-calorie diet). Still on the fence? Here’s all you need to know!

What Is HCG?

This weight loss regimen has been around since 2010 and is actually named after the same hormone the body makes during pregnancy. HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, really acts as a way to reset the metabolism. The diet limits you to a specific amount of calories per day for a certain number of weeks in conjunction with an HCG injection, which you self-administer daily. The injections are even approved to treat fertility issues.

Why HCG?

Weight loss is a different type of journey for each person. Depending on your body and its chemistry, weight loss might be a struggle. This might be the best option for you.

What Does BioAge MD Offer?

In addition to offering HCG injections and a low-calorie diet, HCG participants also receive weekly fat-burning injections with their weigh-in and one-on-one weight loss support with one of our medical professionals. At BioAge MD, we offer two separate program lengths depending on the goals of the individual patient.

If you think HCG injections might be right or your weight loss transformation, we invite you to schedule consultation with BioAge MD in West Palm Beach by calling (561) 223-2707 or contacting us on our website. We require a one-on-one consultation to adequately assess the individual goals of each patient and create a weight loss regimen that’s right for them.

Aging Gracefully with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in West Palm Beach

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is one of the lesser known bio-therapies, but one of the most important for aging individuals. Administered to maintain optimal hormone levels, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps alleviate symptoms of aging like low energy, difficulty sleeping, loss of libido and physical changes.

As humans age, our hormone levels naturally start to decline. Hormones have a direct relationship to the chemistry of the body and, as expected, once the inner workings of the body begin to change there are noticeable differences. The primary goal of this natural hormone therapy is to maintain the body’s level of hormones in a more natural way than introducing synthetic, foreign substances to the body.

Studies have actually shown there are some real long-term benefits to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. For example, natural hormone optimization has helped reduce risks of things like heart disease, osteoporosis, and senility.

Hormone imbalances can cause symptoms that make you physically, emotionally and mentally uncomfortable. There is no reason to live like that when there is a safe, natural way to adjust these feelings.

Oprah is even a fan of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Years ago, Oprah wrote about her hormone imbalances in an issue of O. She said she felt “out of kilter” and took a friend’s recommendation to go see a doctor. After one day of bioidentical estrogen, she said she “felt the veil lift.”

Nothing is worse than not feeling like yourself. We welcome you to schedule an appointment at BioAge MD Anti-Aging & Wellness Center in West Palm Beach today for your free consultation. Call (561) 223-2707 or click here to contact us on our website. We’re located at 1000 N Olive Ave, West Palm Beach FL 33401.

What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is a newly emerged science that helps to achieve different kinds of body metamorphoses – internal and external.  In layman terms, peptides are small proteins comprised of short chains of amino acids that the body uses as hormones and signaling molecules for biological pathways.

These proteins are responsible for the way your body functions.  Your weight loss, your sexual competence, and even your digestion processes are partially controlled by these proteins. Peptide therapy helps the body mimic the functions of naturally occurring peptides to emulate certain abilities on targeted areas.

Although peptide therapy is fairly new, as of 2015, there were over 60 US FDA-approved peptide medications, 140 peptide drugs being evaluated in clinical trials and 500 in pre-clinical development.  This is a science society has been waiting a long time for.

Since peptides vary in structure and number, effects vary as well.  Peptide therapy has been used to treat age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, inflammatory disease and even neuropathy issues. This type of therapy provides a far less invasive alternative to medicines and procedures we have become all too familiar and complacent with.

Additionally, since the body is already accustomed to these peptides, they are synthesized, naturally causing less strain.  Consider how your body processes naturally occurring peptides, like insulin and endorphins.  Peptide therapy is not introducing the body to anything foreign, which is what makes this type of therapy so scientifically sound.

Peptide therapies can be made using chemical processes, or produced inside genetically modified cells.  Many peptide therapies are administered via injection or cream.  Since peptide therapy is based off of how the body naturally works, there have not been many documented side effects associated with the administration of this type of therapy.

Peptide therapy may be your light at the end of a dark tunnel.  For more information about peptide therapy, and to find out which peptide therapy may be right for you, contact us or stop by BioAge MD and talk to one of our knowledgeable staff members. We are open weekdays from 9am-5pm and we’re located at 1000 N Olive Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33410.
