Rapid Weight Loss and Optimal Health

By: Dr. Janice Piro, DC, DABCI

I have never promoted crash diets, fad diets or any weight loss diet that was anything other than a healthy lifestyle diet.  Correcting the physiology through detoxification, proper hormone balance and improved digestive function is the preferred route to healthy, sustainable weight loss.  The problem is that many people are focused on the weight loss more than creating a truly healthy body and balancing function.  Since carrying excess weight contributes to toxic load and hormone imbalance, cause and effect get intermingled, which slows the process of achieving optimal health.  Fad diets and medications that force certain physiological functions only further complicate the issue.

Recently, I read Dr. Simeons’ work on the use of hCG with the morbidly obese.  What I read made physiologic sense, and knowing I could use a homeopathic form of hCG rather than the injectable hormone that Dr. Simeons used, I decided to work with this.

What I found was an excellent solution for obtaining optimal health along with rapid weight loss.  Using Dr. Simeons’ work as a basis for development, we combine a metabolism-enhancing homeopathic, specific nutritional supplements and a very low calorie diet (VLCD).  This is done for no more than 6 weeks and the results are amazing!  Hormones become balanced, the body detoxifies and digestion is corrected by discovering hidden food allergies – which happen to be the three most common reasons for difficult weight loss and/or weight gain.  Further, the choice of foods is consistent with the Paleo Diet, one of our favorite healthy lifestyle diets.

The Piro Clinic Rapid Weight Loss diet utilizes a specialized formula containing a homeopathic form of Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) along with other synergistically functioning homeopathics.  HCG is a hormone secreted by the placenta in pregnant women.  What Dr. Simeons discovered was that this hormone helps maintain metabolism, especially early in pregnancy, to support the rapidly dividing embryonic cells.  When used in conjunction with a VLCD, the hCG causes the body to utilize stored fat to maintain the metabolism.  So, the biggest problem with VLCD’s is solved; the metabolism stays up.  Further, hCG works directly on the hypothalamus, an organ deep in the brain and equal in structure in both men and women.  

Therefore, it is not a hormone that must exclusively be used in women.  It is safe for both sexes.  The hypothalamus directs pituitary gland function, which is considered the master gland.  The pituitary stimulates the function of all the other endocrine (hormone secreting) glands.  A sluggish hypothalamus is one of the great difficulties practitioners face when attempting to naturally balance a patient’s hormones.  The hCG acts to wake up the hypothalamus which, in turn, stimulates pituitary function to direct thyroid, adrenal and gonadal function.  This is how hCG achieves the balancing of hormones.  And because hormones become balanced, other benefits are realized such as improved moods, better sleep, increased energy, decreased hot flashes, improved quality of hair, skin and nails, and much more.

The Piro Clinic Rapid Weight Loss diet’s detoxifying action is not only due to the homeopathic hCG action with releasing stored fat for energy (as toxins are stored in fat), but also because of the very low calorie diet, the healthy foods that are consumed, and the natural supplements prescribed on this diet.

Intestinal function is regulated as the toxins are flushed out of the system.  A dietary fiber supplement is used to clean out the colon.  Hidden food allergies which compound a toxic colon and create Irritable Bowel Syndrome are discovered upon completion of the VLCD and foods are slowly added back into the diet.

It is to be understood that it is not the homeopathic hCG alone that causes the weight loss.  It is the VLCD that causes the weight loss.  The specialized metabolism homeopathic (which contains homeopathic hCG) simply directs the weight loss and protects the metabolism as it wakes up the hypothalamus to help balance hormones.  The result is dramatic, sustainable and rapid weight loss.  This is a marriage made in heaven!

Piro Clinic of Natural Medicine is offering a diet that not only utilizes a specialized metabolism homeopathic, but handles any problems that would cause the diet to not work as well as it otherwise could.  In an initial exam, baseline body measurements are obtained and the Piro Clinic doctor detects and handles, with natural supplements, any physiological functions that would cause the patient difficulty with this diet.  Follow up office visits are scheduled to troubleshoot any problems that may arise along the way.  The goal is to help every person who uses this diet have amazing results and catapult them into a higher level of health.  Even if you have tried another hCG diet, using the injectable hormone or the homeopathic, this is a different approach.  Call Piro Clinic to schedule your consultation and get your questions answered. Rapid, sustainable weight loss and a healthy body await you!

As of December 6, 2011, the FDA has forced 7 companies to remove their hCG products from the market due to false claims.  These companies have irresponsibly sold homeopathic hCG directly to the public promoting it as a stand-alone weight loss supplement.  

We at Piro Clinic do not condone this practice nor do we make such claims.   Homeopathic hCG will not on its own cause weight loss.   Homeopathic hCG is meant to be used as part of a weight loss program which includes a temporary very low calorie diet.  

The doctors at Piro Clinic also add specific professional grade supplementation based on individualized patient evaluation and physician-supervised case management.
