About Dr Simeons: HCG Diet Programme creator….

About Dr Simeons – who developed one of the most interesting, simple & effective weight loss programmes we’ve ever found here at New Leaf Natural Therapies:

Dr Albert T.W. Simeons was born 1900 In England. Educated in Germany, he studied and qualified as an endocrinologist at a time when that discipline was in its infancy. Endocrinology is concerned with the endocrine system – the biological system involving the functions of hormones, and the cells of the glands that secrete them. Hormones drive many processes within our bodies.

At the age of 30 years, Dr Simeons moved to work in India where he studied an endocrine disorder known as “fat boys” syndrome. This disorder was attributed to the pituitary gland that caused extreme obesity in boys whilst delaying puberty. It was at this time that he found the link between fat loss and a naturally occurring hormone accompanied by a low calorie diet.

Around 1950, Dr Simeons set up a clinic in Rome, Italy where he worked diligently to refine his “diet and weight loss protocol”. His manuscript “Pounds and Inches – A New Approach to Obesity” to which many people frequently refer in preparation and throughout their program was originally penned in 1954 with updated editions produced over the following two decades. The protocol facilitates the release of the long-term locked-away fat stores known as adipose tissue. Adipose is a rich source of energy and nutrients but it is not available to the human body when calories are reduced – it is only released when with a specific low calorie diet is undertaken in conjunction with specially prepared diet drops that mimic the effects of the raw hormone that he used nearly 60 years ago. In evolutionary terms, it is the body’s way of providing life-giving nutrients to a mother’s unborn child in near-starvation situations. In our affluent western culture, this natural back-stop – almost never needed – has created a burden on those of us who carry this locked away adiposity.

Dr Simeons passed away in 1970 at the age of 70 years. He had accomplished much during his career that increased understandings of biological processes to improve human health. His diet research is undoubtedly the area of health that is most often connected to his name.

Reading his manuscript:  Pounds and Inches (available on CD from New Leaf Natural Therapies) is a fabulous read…  he developed this manuscript for doctors helping people through the HCG programme.
