Medical Weight Loss Program – Proven Success with the HCG Diet

The revolutionary HCG Diet program offered at The Natural Path is a “springboard” to weight loss that has been clinically proven to be safe and effective, while keeping metabolism strong.

Our physician supervised, updated version of the HCG Diet protocol is based on nearly 70 years of clinical research and can help most people burn excess fat quickly and safely. Our unique version of the HCG Diet protocol is the result of 15 years of clinical experience in facilitating this program with our patients and conducting our own clinical trials.  We have worked hard to evolve Dr. Simeons original protocol to make it easier for those living the modern, busy lifestyle.  In some cases, weight gain is a symptom of a deeper issue in the body and we do our best with every patient to identify these potential factors.

In our medical practice, we have seen consistent and positive results in almost all of our HCG Diet patients

The key to success is a combination of our specific HCG diet plan, the daily injections of pharmaceutical grade, human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG), along with a few easy diet & lifestyle changes.  We are fully committed to helping all of our patients  reach their goals.  We provide strong support system and our patients can reach out with questions or concerns between office visits as needed.  We are also constantly researching the latest studies on weight loss and  provide our patients with an education on how fat burning and fat storage work in the body.  We strive to help our patients lose weight, keep it off and live a life of optimal wellness.

The HCG Diet program that we offer at The Natural Path is something we are truly passionate about.  We have evolved the original HCG Diet program over the past 15 years through hours of research and clinical trials to a modified version that makes it easier to follow and truly offers amazing results.

Dr. Phillipo spends a great deal of time staying current on the latest research that is being done on the hormonal contributions to weight gain and she is an amazing source of knowledge to her patients.

After many years of research, Dr. Madda and Dr. Phillipo have developed an HCG Diet & weight loss plan that is safe, effective, medically researched and fulfills their commitment to higher health.

Over the past decade, the Natural Path HCG Diet program has been a huge success in helping thousands of patients lose weight and more importantly, make lasting changes in their diets and therefore in their health.  It has been an incredibly rewarding program to facilitate!  We love what the HCG Diet can do for people who need to lose weight and learn how to maintain an optimal body composition.

History of the HCG Diet

In the 1950’s and 1960’s, Dr. Simeons made a ground breaking discovery with weight loss! He discovered that when patients were given the hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), along with a specific low calorie diet, the result was increased weight loss that came from fat stores and protected lean body mass. In Rome, Dr. Simeons treated thousands of patients with his protocol. These patients felt very satisfied and did not experience hunger on the program. In the last ten years, the HCG Diet has become a sought after weight loss plan due to its level of safety and effectiveness.

Our Clinical Success Record

At The Natural Path, we have a strong success rate in helping our patients lose weight and keep it off! We have done this program with well over a thousand patients with exceptional results. Our HCG weight loss diet is a complete medical weight loss program that can produce maintainable results when followed properly.

What Makes our HCG Diet Program Different …

HCG Diet Clinic PortlandMedical Supervision
We begin by treating each patient as a whole person! The start of each program begins with a 1-1.5 hour comprehensive office visit to review your medical history, weight loss history and order lab work where needed to check for metabolic issues that maybe interfering with weight loss. We will also review the HCG diet protocol in detail and get a baseline body composition on our state of the art body composition analyzer. This will help us to determine what a healthy and optimal weight is for you!

Each week on the program, you will meet with one of our doctors to check on progress and make program adjustments as needed. Our doctors are also available to you by phone, text or email if you need support between office visits. Your success on the program is one of our greatest priorities!

Dramatic weight loss

Most patients will lose an average of ½ to 1 lb. per day on the program. Depending on how much weight you have to lose, the HCG phase of the program can last for 3-6 weeks. In general, patients can lose anywhere from 10-35 lbs. per cycle of the program. Patients can complete the necessary number of cycles needed to achieve their optimal weight.

Oral Rx HCG preparations

For those who are shy about doing a daily injection of Rx HCG we have an oral preparation to offer. We can have Rx HCG lozenges made by one of our favorite compounding pharmacies. Clinically, we have found the results with patients using our oral preparation to be the same as those using the injectable form of Rx HCG.

Weight Loss from Fat Stores and not Muscle

This is what makes the HCG Diet program unique. On body composition analysis before and after the program, we can see that the majority of weight loss comes from fat mass and not lean body mass. This is very important for proper metabolism. Through the program, you may only be eating a limited number of calories; however, you are turning over your fat stores for fuel. Therefore, hunger stays at bay and metabolism stays strong.

Weight Loss Maintained

The Natural Path offers a very comprehensive Stabilization phase (phase 3) of the HCG Diet program. Our doctors have created a comprehensive phase 3 protocol that helps your body to create a new “set point” for your weight after completion of phase 2 (HCG phase). Throughout the program, you will also LEARN what foods tend to trigger fat storage, ways to eat for enjoyment and health, as well as “correction days” that are used if weight goes up past your optimal range.

Improvements in Overall Health

Excess weight is a factor in many chronic diseases today. By losing weight, we have helped patients let go of many health conditions and medications as indicated.

Clinical Experience

At The Natural Path, Dr. Phillipo and Dr. Madda have spent the last decade extensively researching the HCG Diet, as well as cutting-edge modern science in relation to weight loss. They have also facilitated well over a thousand patients successfully through their unique HCG Diet protocol!

Understanding Semaglutide, Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro and Zepbound
