HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone more commonly known for its uses in fertility and weight loss. It is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. It is now known, however, that it is also produced in the pituitary of males and females of all ages.
The use of HCG as a diet aid was first discussed in a report by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons published in 1954.
The HCG Diet is a weight-loss approach that uses prescription only HCG hormone in combination with a low-calorie diet. Over the counter, HCG does not contain pharmaceutical HCG and therefore should not be used.
Dr. Bird is a member of the American Academy of Pain Management. At one of the annual meetings a few years back, one of the top pain doctors in the U.S. presented some surprising news about HCG. In a small study, HCG injections provided remarkably effective pain relief for patients with fibromyalgia and others who suffered from severe, intractable pain. Many of the patients in the study were taking morphine every day for pain.
The doctor conducting the study was Forrest Tennant, MD, from the Veract Intractable Pain Clinic in West Covina, California. Dr. Tennant began his HCG study after learning about a weight loss clinic that used HCG injections as part of its weight loss program. The clinic had observed that some of its clients who had been plagued various pain conditions were experiencing unexpected relief after receiving the HCG injections.
His study included 12 patients who had severe pain for five years or more. When the study started, all 12 patients were taking narcotics for chronic and breakthrough pain. Dr. Tennant gave the patients a challenge dose of HCG. After one week, 8 of the 12 patients reported feeling improvement in their pain symptoms. For the next year, those 8 patients continued to receive 1 to 3 HCG injections per week No other changes were made during the patients' therapy. They had fewer flare-ups of severe pain. Seven of the 8 patients were able to decrease their use of narcotic medications by 30-50%. Five of the patients said they experienced some pain-free hours. All the patients reported more energy, better concentration, and less depression. After one year of using the HCG, all eight of them said they wanted to continue using HCG because it helped so much.
Dr. Tennant has also put an additional 30-40 pain patients on HCG, and reports that 85 to 90% of them are getting positive results.
Dr. Robb Bird here at Transformyou has also been successfully treating pain conditions with the HCG hormone with very positive results and little to no side effects. Other symptoms that need to be looked at besides pain also include fatigue, insomnia, depression, and decreased libido.
Some of the conditions treated with HCG can include:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Opioid-induced hormone imbalances
- Low testosterone
Often times we find ourselves in pain and are given little to no options to help get rid of it. The good news is that there are ALWAYS options, sometimes it’s just harder discovering what those options are and how to go about getting treatment. Many of us who suffer from chronic pain or discomfort have tried numerous therapies without any positive long lasting relief. You may have asked yourself, what’s next? or what do I do now?
