HCG weight loss – $500/mth
If you have tried the various diets and weight loss programs, and are dissatisfied with the outcomes, then an HCG diet may be the right option for you.
The HCG weight loss diet has its advantages in areas where other weight loss diets and programs appear to be seriously lacking. It attacks the causes of obesity such as low metabolism, intense physiological hunger and ‘binge’ or emotional eating. These abnormalities have usually been linked to a small region in the brain known as the hypothalamus.
Other diet programs simply deal with the symptoms of such abnormalities by cutting the intake of food, thus they become far less effective in the long run. The fat that is lost after intense exercise regimes and numerous months of strict dieting returns almost as soon as one goes back to a normal diet. However, HCG diets can help bring these abnormalities, such as low metabolism, which are the fundamental causes of obesity within normal parameters.

Saliva testing – $200
Most hormones are produced by a group of glands known collectively as the endocrine system. Even though these glands are located in various parts of the body, they are considered one system because of their similar functions and relationship to each other.
Hormones are extremely potent substances. It takes only a minute amount to initiate an action. Hormones are secreted into the bloodstream by the glands. From there, they travel to all parts of the body. Once inside, they get to work, flipping the switches that govern growth, development, and mental and physical functions throughout life. All that changes when your hormones become unbalanced due to physical and emotional stress or the effects of aging. Signals do not reach the right place at the right time. Sometimes cell functions shut down completely. In other cases, cells are over stimulated. All this chaos causes unpleasant symptoms, at the very least. In severe situations, these imbalances can lead to chronic disorders or disease.
Your hormones should exist in harmony with each other. When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can cause chronic symptoms and disorders, and raise risks for disease.
A whole host of symptoms may signify an imbalance:
- Weight Gain
- Mood swings
- Loss of libido (sex drive)
If you have tried to figure out what is happening or perhaps treated your symptoms in ways that don’t seem to work, testing your hormones may be the first step to feeling better.
Saliva and blood spot testing reliably identify hormone imbalances. When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can become toxic to the body causing unwanted symptoms, disorders and disease.
- Saliva testing, unlike serum tests, measures the bioavailable (“free”) levels of steroid hormones, correlating with symptomatology and potential deficiency
- Samples are collected by the patient at home, allowing convenient timing of collection especially for cortisol, which must be measured at specific times of the day or night
- Convenience of collection allows frequent sampling, e.g., during a menstrual cycle to determine fertility problems
- Hormone levels can be assessed during topical hormone supplementation
- Saliva collection avoids the stress of a blood draw, which can affect levels of cortisol
- Hormones are stable in saliva at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, allowing for worldwide shipment and convenient mailing of samples for testing
- Saliva testing is less expensive than conventional serum testing
