HCG: The Research

  • Can’t get into those clothes you want to wear?
  • Can’t do the things you want to do?
  • Is weight gain affecting your quality of Life?
  • Do something about it!

A science-based weight loss method once available only in Europe is now in Phoenix, AZ at the medical office of Dr. Andrea Purcell.


In the 1950s, in Rome, Italy, Dr. Simeons was looking for a cure for obesity. Not simply another weight loss program, where dieters would lose pounds and then put them right back on again after they went off their rigid calorie control. He wanted to see the overweight problem ended. In other words, when weight came off, it stayed off.

While in India, he noticed that women who were pregnant during times of hunger, living on a mere 200 calories a day and losing weight throughout their pregnancy, nevertheless had full-term healthy babies. How could this be? It dawned on him that, by some unknown means, there was a physiological mechanism that kicked in during pregnancy that allowed the mothers fat stores to be converted into food for her developing baby.

Dr. Simeons was aware that the hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) increases during pregnancy. Might this be the key?


Over the next 16 years, Dr. Simeons ran a clinic attached to a hospital in Italy, combining injections of HCG with a short-term specific diet that dampens hunger while the body burns fat on a very specific diet. He successfully treated some 10,000 patients.

Today pharmacies manufacture HCG to the exact chemical structure of the body friendly substance that can be found in the urine of pregnant females.

Under normal circumstances the diet is almost impossible. But through the administration of HCG it becomes possible. The HCG treatment of Dr. Simeons suppresses feelings of hunger so you will feel satisfied.

In due course, other doctors began studying Dr. Simeons’ unique protocol and taking it back with them to different parts of Europe. Amazingly, in person after person the pounds and inches came off-and stayed off. They all came to the same conclusion, with HCG treatment you can achieve fantastic results!

Incredibly, after the 30 day program people have lost an average of between 8% and 10% of their body weight!

HCG: The Bottom Line

What people lose with HCG isn’t simply weight, but fat. And specifically, a particular kind of fat.

We generally think of fat as just “fat,” but in fact there are three distinct kinds of fat. Two of which we need, and one we don’t. If you’ve tried dieting, perhaps diet after diet, and found that the weight comes back, it’s because diets can’t rid us of the one kind of fat that most needs to be eliminated.

Of the three kinds of fat, structural fat is essential because it cushions our organs. Then there’s the kind of fat that gives us a reserve of energy, fueling the body between meals. But a third kind of fat-the unsightly fat that ruins our appearance-is totally unhealthy. This unwanted fat is not only unhealthy, it just happens to be almost impossible to lose. It can be mobilized only in times of starvation and pregnancy.

In women, this unhealthy fat tends to accumulate around the middle and thighs. In men, it’s around the belly and chest. In both cases, it’s extremely difficult to get rid of. The usual approaches to weight loss just don’t budge it.

The genius of Dr. Simeons was to recognize that HCG triggers the body to burn this type of fat. It appears to reset the hypothalmus gland, along with areas of the brain that regulate a variety of hormones, blood sugar metabolism, blood pressure, and other key body functions.

The HCG program consists of a low calorie diet in combination with HCG hormone treatments. During the 30 days you regularly inject a small amount of HCG into your body. Be aware that the HCG itself does not cause weight loss, it just modifies your eating behavior. This will make it possible to maintain the diet. We give you details of the fat and practically starch free diet to obtain optimum results.

HCG helps to burn the “mobile fat”; that is the fat that is stored around the hips, thighs, belly and upper arms. It will however leave the so called “structural fat”, that can be found in the muscles and protects the organs, untouched. This way the excess fat will disappear even faster, the problem areas will be dealt with more efficiently and you will preserve your muscle mass the entire time.
