HCG Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What is homeopathy?             

Homeopathy is based on the concept that the body has the ability to heal or change itself by the introduction of the imprint of various remedies. Homeopathy was discovered in the late 1700’s in Germany.  It is based on the idea that "like cures like." That is, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same substance has the same results. In theory, a homeopathic dose enhances the body's normal healing and regulatory processes.

Where is HCG Total Solution manufactured?

In Phoenix, AZ, using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) in an FDA registered facility.   It is produced under The Homeopathy Pharmacopoeia of the US (HPUS), mirroring The European Homeopathic Pharmacopeia and the FDA.   The manufacturer uses the purest form of HCG available in its manufacturing process of HCG Total Solution.

What is HCG?  

HCG is a natural glycoprotein called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). One of the functions of this glycoprotein was discovered by Dr. Simeons in the 1950’s, leading to his development of the HCG diet. HCG, naturally occurring in pregnant women, allows the body to metabolize abnormal fat and use the released calories as nutritional energy for the body.

How does HCG work?              

Dr. Simeons concluded that excess weight is caused by a disorder of the diencephalic center of the brain, and that HCG works on that part of the brain which unlocks the calories stored in abnormal fat resulting in weight loss. In the homeopathic version of HCG, only a very small fraction of glycoprotein is being used to burn abnormal fat cells, turning it into energy (calories) with the help of the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD).  

Are all HCG products the same?       

Some are manufactured and sold without following proper manufacturing standards, produced with cost as the determinant factor. HCG Total Solution includes amino acids which are important to healthy weight loss. Some HCG products are administered by syringe, not sublingually.  

What are the added amino acids in HCG Total Solution?

Acetyl-L Carnitine: a naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat, as a powerful antioxidant increasing blood circulation and is known to support a healthy memory.

L-Arginine: an amino acid which helps relax blood vessels and improves circulation, while improving heart health and the immune system.

L-Ornithine: commonly used in combination with L-Arginine, associated with the body’s production of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) known for anabolic and fat-burning properties. It causes the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone. Good news for anti-aging enthusiasts and athletes searching for muscle growth and retention, less body fat and other youthful benefits including healthier skin and increased energy levels.

Why are amino acids added to HCG Total Solution?

They are added to supplement the healthy effects of HCG while providing positive benefits to the health of the body.

Is HCG useful for everyone?

Yes, the HCG diet protocol is effective for men and women, as well as young adults. It is especially useful for unwanted fat reduction for those who have a body mass index (BMI) above 20.  

Are there any negative side effects from using homeopathic HCG?

There are no clinically proven negative side effects from homeopathic HCG. Some may experience headaches or minor dizziness, which should disappear in a few days. Anyone who has health concerns or on medication should consult their health care provider before going on any diet.

Will HCG interfere with medications?

Homeopathic HCG will not interact with ANY medications. Since this diet eliminates the intake of sugars and starches, it will affect blood sugar levels. Check with a health care provider before beginning any diet.

How do I store my HCG Total Solution?  

Store at room temperature, away from direct sunlight, moisture, electronic devices and over-heated cars.  

How do I take HCG Total Solution?

HCG Total Solution is taken sublingually by placing the HCG drops under the tongue. For best results, take the drops on an empty stomach not within fifteen minutes of eating or drinking.

How many drops should I take each time?  

Follow the instructions on the bottle. If the dieter is physically active, or large in stature, more drops may be needed. Some prefer to take fewer drops more often.   It is recommended that each person experiment to determine dosage and frequency which works best.

Are there different kinds of fat in the body? 

Yes, there are three types. One is structural fat which is needed to provide cushion between organs, a sort of packing material, and to cushion the bone structure. Another provides a reserve of fuel which the body can draw upon when the nutritional resources are insufficient. The third is abnormal fat which is a fuel reserve, but unlike the first and second kinds of fat, abnormal fat is not available unless there is a nutritional emergency such as starvation or when its calories are unlocked by HCG. By taking the HCG drops and following the 500 Very Low Calorie Diet protocol the body will burn the abnormal fat, not the structural fat that is needed.

Does HCG release fat only around the stomach?

No, it releases abnormal fat throughout the body. It helps resculpt the body through the loss of weight and inches. It is an effective diet for those trying to lose weight and get rid of hard to-get-to pockets of fat and who are willing to follow the HCG diet protocol.

How does HCG protect the good fat and only release the abnormal fat?                           

HCG is known to only “open” the contents of the abnormal fat cells thus allowing those calories to be used for nutritional demand. Because HCG releases the calories in the unwanted fat first, it helps protect the good fat necessary for the body.

Is the 500 calorie diet a starvation diet?    

No. According to Dr. Simeons, “Under the effect of HCG the…body is always able to obtain all the calories it needs from the abnormal fat deposits, regardless of whether it uses…1,500-4,000 per day. The participant is living to a far greater extent on the fat which he is losing than on what he eats.”   HCG unlocks the necessary calories stored in abnormal fat to supplement the 500 calories eaten each day. Further, the effect of HCG makes the energy from the abnormal fat calories available 24/7 while on the diet.

Won’t I lose weight by only eating 500 calories?

Yes, but anyone who does so without HCG in their system will be miserable. If a person diets by eating less than 1,500 calories per day they experience enormous hunger, have little energy, lose muscle mass, body fluids and lose the fat needed to cushions organs and bones in their body.   In addition, the person may experience “painful heel” which occurs when dieting reduces the amount of fat around the heel bones making them susceptible to pain with each step taken.

Can I use sweeteners on the HCG diet?

We recommend Stevia produced by Stevia-International™ which is a natural sweetener, has zero calories, zero carbohydrates and has zero impact on the Glycemic Index, with no bitter after taste.   It comes in its natural flavor and a variety of other organic flavors and is available on this website.

Is there a diet protocol supplied with HCG Total Solution?

Yes. It is a guide with helpful hints on how to successfully lose weight by following the HCG weight loss protocol. A daily tracking form is also provided which is a resource for each dieter to record the foods eaten during each day and the progress made on weight loss.

Are recipes provided?   What about recipes for vegans?

Yes, recipes are provided with the diet protocol.   Vegan recipes are also available.

Is a body detox necessary before going on the HCG diet?  

Some go through a detoxing before going on the HCG diet. Although it is not necessary, going through a detox will assist the body in getting ready to lose excess weight.

What is the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD)?              

It consists of eating 500 calories per day made up of limited food items. Any dieter should drink plenty of water throughout the day. The diet consists of tea, coffee or water for breakfast. Stevia-International™ Stevia may be used as a sweetener. Lunch: 1. 100 grams or 4 oz. beef, chicken breast, white fish, lobster, crab or shrimp, with visible fat removed, weighed raw; 2. One vegetable: spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, lettuce, tomatoes, fennel, onions, radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage; 3. One breadstick (Grissino) or one Melba toast; 4. An apple, a handful of strawberries, or ½ grapefruit.     Dinner, the same four choices as lunch.

Will there be any impact on my menstrual cycle on the HCG diet?          

It is recommended that a woman should not begin the HCG diet within ten days of her menstrual cycle.   HCG may cause heavier bleeding and cramping. If either is experienced, stop taking the drops for a couple of days, but stay on the diet.   There may be a slight weight gain due to water retention. This should be reversed by the end of the menstrual cycle.

Will I be hungry on the 500 calorie diet?  

HCG should diminish discomfort from hunger. The first two days, “Loading days”, when you eat all types of food, helps reduce/eliminate hunger when the dieter begins the VLCD on day 3. On the diet, HCG is stimulating the body to burn abnormal fat as an energy source so that the body’s nutritional needs can be met (on average, 1,500 to 2,000 additional calories/day) in conjunction with the 500 calories being eaten. By vigorously adhering to Dr. Simeons’ protocol, feelings of hunger are generally alleviated. The intake of additional fluids and an adjustment in the number or frequency of HCG drops can also help.

Do men and women experience the same weight loss?

Men generally get faster results and lose more weight than women.

How much weight should I expect to lose?  

Average loss is about a pound per day. Results vary based on weight loss goals, how closely a person follows the weight loss protocol and other conditions related to each person.   Generally, weight loss is greater at the beginning of the diet and slows as the dieter gets closer to ideal weight.   There may be one or more leveling-off or plateau periods. Having an “apple day”, when only apples are eaten, helps the body begin losing weight again.  

Are there multiple phases to the HCG weight loss cycle?

Yes, Phase I is the dieting phase while taking the HCG drops on the 500 calorie diet; Phase II is the period when the body transitions to the lower body weight; Phase III is the final maintenance phase when each person returns to a regular diet while maintaining the new lower body weight.

If I do not accomplish my weight loss goal, should I go through more weight loss cycles?

Yes, if more weight loss is desired at the end of the first diet cycle, the weight loss cycle may be repeated. During each weight loss cycle of homeopathic HCG, similar results should occur, depending on the weight loss target and other conditions of the dieter.
