hcg diet portlandThe Natural Path offers a Naturopathic Approach to the HCG Diet.  HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin  is produced naturally in the body of a pregnant woman by her placenta. The main function of this hormone is to control the rate of metabolism via the hypothalamus gland.  HCG injections have been clinically shown to help patients lose weight via the HCG diet.   If you are looking for a very safe and effective method to lose unwanted pounds, following a medically supervised HCG weight loss program is a wonderful plan of action. Safe, efective and transformative esults are seen in many patients.  We often see patients lose 15-30 lbs in a month while following HCG weight loss plan. Every body is different and the amount of weight lost depends upon many factors.

Our Unique HCG Diet Protocol

Those living in Portland, Oregon can find a number of specialty clinics that offer the HCG diet  protocol. Dr. Cara has devoted the last decade of her life to staying up on the latest cutting edge research of fat metabolism.  She guides her patients through the process every step of the way.  The degree of success with HCG diet varies from one person to another depending on various factors of lifestyle and genetics.   However, in most cases, HCG weight loss is accompanied with reduced cravings for food as well as plenty of strength and energy to go about the normal activities of daily living.

Phase II and the Low Calorie Part of the Diet

Those on HCG diet need to follow a VLCD or very low calorie diet of 500 calories per day.  This may sound like caloric restriction, but, in fact with a therapeutic dose of a pharmaceutiocal grade HCG your fats stores are being burned to make up for the caloric deficit.  As these fat stores are burned, 1000-2000 calories per day are unleashed into  the bloodstream for the body to use as fuel.  For this reason, the body is not at a caloric deficit depsite only eating 500 calories/day and therefore our patients rarely complain of hunger.


.Disclaimer HCG is a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control.
