The IAPAM has trained over 650 physicians on how to safely offer hCG for weight loss, and well over 20,000 patients have successfully lost weight using the IAPAM’s Exclusive hCG Protocol. The core principles of the IAPAM’s hCG Training are consistent with those outlined by Dr. Oz in his March 14, 2012 segment on hCG for weight loss: it is imperative for patients to undertake an hCG program under the care of a trained physician, and never use hCG (homeopathic hCG) that is sold without a prescription.
In his March 14, 2012 segment on hCG for weight loss ( http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/does-hcg-diet-work-pt-1 ), Dr. Oz announced that he had “new data” on the successful use of hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) for weight loss. In a pilot study conducted by a leading medical weight management physician, Dr. Oz reported that patients following a strict, medically supervised hCG Protocol, were not hungry and lost weight, and ultimately lost more “fat vs. muscle,” than patients on only a very low calorie diet.
During the segment, Dr. Oz had several key messages regarding the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical grade hCG in a physician-supervised weight loss program. These key messages are consistent with the principals taught in the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine’s Physician hCG Training ( http://www.hcgtraining.com ):
1. Consistent with the FDA’s position, homeopathic hCG (hCG drops, etc.) DO NOT WORK. Only pharmaceutical hCG, prescribed by a physician as part of a proven hCG Protocol, is effective in fat and weight loss.
2. Unlike weight loss from a restrictive diet alone, where up to 1/3 of a patient’s weight loss is muscle loss, patients on an hCG Protocol lose fat from their stomachs, buttocks, etc. and “leave the muscle alone.”
3. Dr. Oz recommends that any patient on diet under 1200 calories, should be under the direct care of a physician.
The IAPAM’s hCG Protocol is based upon the successful protocol originally developed in 1954 by Dr. Simeons, and detailed in his report, Pounds and Inches, and is built around a low calorie diet coupled with the administration of the pharmaceutical grade of the naturally occurring hormone, hCG. The IAPAM’s hCG Protocol has been administered to over 20,000 patients around the world with consistent weight loss results.
To date, all of the IAPAM’s 2010, 2011 and 2012 Physician hCG Medical Weight Management seminars have sold out, so to register for the next hCG Training session in Scottsdale, Arizona, please go to http://www.hcgtraining.com, or contact the IAPAM at email@example.com or 1-800-219-5108 ext 708.
