WHAT IS HCG?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or more medically termed as HCG, is a powerful hormone that is naturally produced in excess by the placenta when women become pregnant (also known as “the hormone of pregnancy”). The placenta is the organ that connects to the fetus that controls the nutrient uptake, waste elimination, and produces hormones that will support a woman’s pregnancy.
The purpose of this hormone is to promote healthy absorption and distribution of food consumed to the fetus. In fact, HCG is actually present in every human tissue of males, non-pregnant women, and as well as pregnant women.
HOW CAN HCG AND PHENTERMINE HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?
During a woman’s pregnancy, if the mother is unable to get the proper nourishment, then the hormone HCG would allow it so that the growing fetus can pull away the mother’s stored fat to grow instead. The idea of weight loss is based on this same concept.
Real HCG is can be used for men and women, but when injected in small doses, it unlocks the body’s deep fat tissues to be burned for energy, which will result in rapid weight loss, a suppressed appetite, and an incredible change in the body’s curvature that cannot be accomplished with any other diet.
To assist along with weight loss, Phentermine is also prescribed as an appetite-suppressing stimulant drug (often used to treat obesity). Full information about HCG.
HCG tricks the hypothalamus gland part of your brain to believe that you are “pregnant”, so your brain has no choice but to continue to keep providing your apparently pregnant body with energy, in which pulls from the fat stored in the body.
IS HCG SAFE?
The HCG diet is different from other weight loss regimens because the hormone boosts your metabolism. HCG has often been used for weight loss as an off-label (meaning the use of medication is approved for a certain condition but not approved to treat a different condition) and is not FDA approved for weight loss. The results of weight loss will vary from patient to patient.
Keep in mind that HCG does not make you lose weight – the diet is what makes you lose weight! However, the HCG injections will help change how you lose the weight! The presence of HCG in the bloodstream reduces the feelings of hunger, so you can eat comfortably very little. Read about the benefits of HCG program
Discovery of HCG:
The weight loss properties of HCG were discovered in 1930 by a British endocrinologist by the name of Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons.
Ever since, HCG has been used in combination with a restricted-calorie diet and has been promising to promote weight loss.
The hypothalamus gland is responsible for handling fat distribution and storage. Studies have proven that those who are overweight, tend to have a much slower-functioning hypothalamus gland, making it difficult to distribute the fat properly, thus storing more fat than it should be. HCG injections prevent this gland from going into “lock-down mode” when you are eating very few calories each day, while Phentermine binds to the receptors and desensitize the central nervous system to numb the hunger.
HCG Injections will also keep you from losing muscle while you diet, by elevating the hormonal levels within the body. The hormone, HCG, creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) counteracting the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown).

Medical Marijuana (THC & CBD)
Although under federal law, marijuana or cannabis is still illegal for recreational purposes for certain states like Florida, upper, and western states has proved to be very effective for treating symptoms that come with certain ailments. As of 2018, there is currently 29 legal medical marijuana states and DC, but only 9 states allow marijuana recreationally. As more states are now seeing the potential of cannabis, it would take time for passing legalization.
Medical marijuana has been used miraculously to treat various conditions and diseases with a natural chemical origin (THC) found in marijuana plants. Marijuana contains more than 100 different synthetic chemicals, each with its own special effects called cannabinoids.
With constant progression and advancement of medical technology, ingredients from the plant can be easily and properly extracted. THC (tetrahydrocannabinoid) and CBD (cannabidiol) are the compounds naturally produced by the plant, which creates the “high effect” the user feels when smoking or ingesting foods that contain it. THC and CBD are also the main components used in medicine today.
HOW CAN MEDICAL MARIJUANA HELP?
The body already contains marijuana-like cells, which function to help the body resist pain, inflammation, and other nerve-afflicting receptors, and marijuana will most likely help those natural receptors within the body work more efficiently reduce discomfort (WebMD)
In July 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved THC to treat nausea and improve appetite from chemotherapy,
in a prescription called Marinol and Cesamet.
The controversy over medical marijuana has received a lot of coverage within the past few years when parents, who sued the state of Illinois, said the form of cannabis helped control seizures for their daughter. Since then, there has been research about its safety, but the government only allows certain Doctors with a special license to research it.
WHAT CONDITIONS QUALIFY FOR A MEDICAL CARD?
Although there are 38 legal medical marijuana states and the city DC, each region has its their own set of regulations and policies for qualifying for a medical card. You are a good candidate for a medical marijuana license in Florida only if you qualify for these conditions:
Qualifying Medical Reasons:
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease
Medical conditions of the same kind or class as or comparable to those listed above
A terminal condition diagnosed by a physician other than the qualified physician issuing the certification
Chronic malignant pain
HOW TO GET A MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD?
You must have a condition that qualifies for the use of cannabis. To get a medical marijuana license, the state requires a licensed doctor to write a recommendation, which allows a patient to buy medical marijuana at any local dispensary. Every patient with a marijuana card will be saved into an authorized buyer database where sellers can see credentials.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) for Women
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the newly advanced breakthrough, now widely accepted as a treatment option and has been growing in popularity amongst women over the age of 35. If you’ve noticed that you’ve been feeling fatigued or run-down, easy to gaining weight, and/or feeling you’re out of options when it comes to managing the symptoms of menopause, then Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) could be the solution to improve your experience.
Usually around the age of 30, the typical woman would normally start to show some signs of aging, and as a result, the normal levels of hormones in the body would start to decline after peaking in your 20s and early 30s. Which is why, at Vitality Health, we offer the solution to relieve any symptoms you’ve been experiencing due to menopause and aging.
WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT (BHRT)?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) or “natural hormone therapy” is the use of hormones to resolve symptoms related to aging or menopause by balancing the levels of hormones in the body to the normal ranges. The form BHRT is not found in nature but is created, or synthesized, from a plant chemical, that is extracted from yams and soy.
The North American Menopause Society reports that about 1.4 million women now use BHRT treatments,
which is around 40 percent of all prescriptions for hormone therapy in women who are menopausal or postmenopausal.
There are certain hormone treatments that are referred to as “bioidentical” or “natural” because the types of hormones that are used are actually chemically identical to those produced in the human body, according to molecular studies.
BHRT aims to increase or balance the hormones that have to do with reproduction and youth: estrogen (in estrone or estradiol form), progesterone, sometimes testosterone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), and the adrenal hormones.
BHRT treatments can be administered via creams, injections, gels, tablets, sprays, or lotion with the goal of elevating hormone levels back to a much more vigorous state. Our experienced Doctors will decide which method is best for you while monitoring your hormone levels closely. Get details on BHRT here.
WHO IS BHRT FOR?
During the years leading up and transitioning to menopause, a woman’s body would actually start to produce less estrogen and other key hormones in the body. Bioidentical HRT is best for women looking to get relief from post-menopause and aging symptoms.
Hot flashes and night sweats
A hot flash is a quick feeling of heat and sometimes a red, flushed face and sweating. (WebMD)
Hot flashes with sweating can also happen at night. These are called night sweats and may make it harder to sleep. (WebMD)
Vaginal dryness is another common symptom of menopause and even more common after menopause. The walls of the vagina stay lubricated with a thin layer of clear fluid. The hormone estrogen helps maintain that fluid and keeps the lining of the vagina healthy, thick, and elastic. During menopause, the drop in estrogen levels reduces the amount of moisture available, making the vagina thinner and less elastic. (WebMD)
Loss of interest in sex / Pain during sex
The loss of estrogen and testosterone following menopause can lead to changes in a woman’s body and sexual drive. Menopausal and postmenopausal women may notice that they’re not as easily aroused, and they may be less sensitive to touching and stroking, thus can lead to less interest in sex. (WebMD)
The decrease of estrogen particularly seems to impact the hypothalamus, a part of the brain that’s often referred to as “the thermostat of the body,” as it regulates body temperature, sleep patterns, sex hormones, mood, and appetite (draxe). From peri-menopause to post-menopause, women will often report sleeping problems. (National Sleep Foundation).
Loss of energy / Fatigue
The main cause of fatigue or loss of energy is the change in hormone levels. Oestrogen, progesterone, thyroid and adrenal hormones are all involved in regulating cellular energy in the body, which when compromised can lead to fatigue. (source)
Loss of muscle mass
Estrogen is the culprit behind decreased protein storage as well as muscle loss in general. Women over 50 produce less estrogen than younger, premenopausal women, which contributes to significant losses in muscle mass (Livestrong)
The hormonal changes of menopause might make you more likely to gain weight around your abdomen than around your hips and thighs. But, hormonal changes alone don’t necessarily cause menopause weight gain. Instead, the weight gain is usually related to aging, as well as lifestyle and genetic factors.
Foggy thinking / Memory loss
Menopausal brain fog and memory loss is definitely real. As hormones fluctuate in your body during menopause, cognitive functions are affected. Estrogen increases the levels of key brain chemicals like serotonin, which is linked to positive mood, and acetylcholine, which is essential for learning and memory. Your ability to assimilate and manipulate new information does not perform as well as usual during menopause. (source)
If you are feeling easily irritable, sad, lack of motivation, anxiety, tensed, and/or aggressive, there is a good chance it could be a symptom of menopause. They can also make a woman feel like she is in a constant state of PMS (premenstrual syndrome). Unfortunately, these emotional changes are a normal part of menopause. (WebMD)
Many of these symptoms may or may not have to do with aging or menopause, it’s best to consult with your Doctor first. Menopause is a normal cycle of the aging process and won’t last forever. Many of the common side effects associated with menopause could also be related to poor diet, lifestyle, or environmental changes.
IS BHRT SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?
Using bioidentical hormones are safe and have been proven effective with minimal side effects. Your body will not be able to distinguish the difference between bioidentical hormones and the ones that your ovaries produce.
Bioidentical hormones are hormones synthesized to identically resemble the natural hormones produced by the ovary. The Endocrine Society defines bioidentical hormones as “compounds that have exactly the same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that are produced in the human body.”
Often women will choose bioidenticals, believing that it is natural or made “without chemicals”, but in actuality, it’s not true. Bioidenticals derived from plants are modified at the lab to change them to be similar to human hormones.
The hormone therapy products approved by the FDA come from both plant and animal sources and are equally “natural” as bioidentical products. Learn more about the Benefits and risks of Hormone Replacement Therapy.

HGH Replacement Therapy for Anti Aging
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) or somatotropin, definitely makes it sounds like the mythical fountain of youth. HGH is actually a protein that is produced in your brain by the pituitary gland naturally. HGH is fundamentally responsible for stimulating all tissues in the body for proper growth & development of organs, cells, muscle mass, and bone density.
Typically, HGH along with other hormones will be produced the most during puberty, for all men and women. Unfortunately, the truth is, HGH is actually among the hormones to gradually decline from normal aging. HGH Replacement Therapy could be the answer for naturally rejuvenating your body and skin, to be much younger and vibrant as you once were.
A person who is 20-year-old will produce twice as much HGH than they will at the age of 40.
While signs of aging is a normal part of the human cycle, a man or woman in their late 20s or early 30s will naturally produce less HGH inside the body, but if the body is still capable of continuing to produce Human Growth Hormones, the person will evidently look and feel much younger, just when they were in their 20s again.
WHAT IS HGH THERAPY AND WHO NEEDS IT MOST?
Men and women will gradually decline in hormonal production as they hit mid-ages of 30-40s as part of the human life cycle. To be young and healthy, many often search for alternatives that will help reduce signs of aging, but often misguided when the actual problem lies within and not outside the body. The cause of aging is due to the imbalance and natural HGH hormones in the body that preserves your good health and physique.
HGH therapy has the goal of replenishing hormonal back to youthful levels, available through injections. HGH therapy is usually only for anyone diagnosed with HGH deficiency. HGH deficiency will cause aging, dry skin, thinning hair, wrinkles, and other symptoms listed below.
HGH Deficiency symptoms
Osteoporosis (weakening of the bones)
Memory loss / Brain Fog
Lack of concentration
Dry and wrinkled skin
Tiredness / Fatigue
Higher risk of Cardiovascular disease
Increase in LDL (“bad”) cholesterol
Sensitive to Temperature change
Many do not realize that every man and woman (starting at age 30-40) will be diagnosed with a hormonal imbalance as a natural effect of aging, some point in their life. Luckily, there are numerous treatments available that will safely restore the body’s ability to naturally produce human growth hormone (HGH), as it did before, which is why balancing hormones of graying adults should make them look and feel much younger.
IS HGH REPLACEMENT THERAPY SAFE?
The modern use of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) has become very popular because the therapy showed promising results to resolving hormonal imbalances in the body. HGH is a crucial substance involved at every stage of life and having proper levels of HGH is vital for good health and wellness. HGH therapy is safe and should be administered by an experienced Doctor in a clinical setting.
Lacking HGH at birth can actually cause a condition called Dwarfism (where the growth of the person is very slow or much more delayed than normally, resulting in a shorter body structure and looking older), along with other symptoms like osteoporosis, fatigue, loss of muscle mass, senility, fragileness, weight gain, lower life expectancy, greater risk of cardiovascular disease.
Discovery of Pituitary Gland and Recognition
In the late 19th century, the importance of the pituitary gland was finally recognized for growth in the body
and is a tiny organ at the base of the brain that naturally produces HGH and other life-essential hormones.
HGH was first discovered in the late 1950s but was strictly FDA-approved for children and adolescents that were HGH deficient. Back in the 1950s, medical discoveries back were not as advanced as today, which caused a limited production and supply of Human Growth-derived hormone, therefore the use of HGH to research and treat other conditions were much more difficult.
Now with the advancement of technology and medical discoveries, there is now an abundant availability of recombinant human growth hormone (rHGH) used to treat a wider range of conditions, though HGH hasn’t yet been approved by the FDA to be the actual treatment for anti aging. (source: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
Today, there has been an enormous discovery and use of HGH treatments in children, adolescents, and adults. If the individual’s body is still able to produce enough HGH, they should look younger. Now the real question is whether you choose to improve your human growth hormone levels naturally or synthetically.
Synthetic HGH – is the hormone that is produced in a lab and administered in the form of an injection which best allows the hormones to reach the bloodstream quickly and delivered via controlled concentration.
Some risks of synthetic hormone injections:
High blood pressure
Swelling in the arms and the legs
Accelerated growth of organs or bones known as acromegaly
HGH injections can also have an effect on the overproduce concentrations of Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) which plays a vital role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults.
Side effects of IGF-1 overproduction:
Swelling in the arms and legs
Carpal tunnel and arthritis-like symptoms
Headaches and general muscle pain
Abnormal growth of the bones and internal organs
High blood pressure
Hardening of the arteries
Natural HGH Releasers – is considered a nutritional supplement and does not administer artificial HGH or stimulants. Instead, it will affect the body’s HGH levels internally, to naturally produce HGH but effects will take longer. HGH releasers are not considered prescription medications and are synthetic-free hormones, often purchased as a dietary supplement.
In 1985, synthetic HGH was developed and approved by the FDA for specific uses.
However, it was commonly abused by athletes, bodybuilders,
and aging adults for its ability increase muscle mass and decrease body fat,
as well as its potential to improve athletic performance and reverse the effects of aging.
Depending on the reasoning for HGH therapy, your insurance company may be willing to cover part of your costs only if it is a medical condition and requires treatment. Be prepared to cover costs if you are considering HGH therapy for self-improvement and physical appearances like anti-aging, bodybuilding, or other off-label benefits.
