HCG and Hormonal Balancing…

Monday, October 29th, 2012

HCG is our fabulous weight loss programme.  We use RFM HCG Homeopathic Drops which work brilliantly.  One of the greatest things about HCG is the hormonal balancing it achieves.  A high BMI messes up our hormones, permanently.  But HCG has an amazing ability to:

  • settle cortisol levels – cortisol is fat-storing and stops our memory from working properly
  • settles adrenals (unless people drink too much coffee, diet soft drinks) and thereby allows other hormones to function more effectively
  • digestion – so many digestive hormones work 100% better after HCG.  Most of our clients find that indigestion, heartburn, bloating – all disappear.
  • re-boosts thyroid levels – when the cortisol and adrenalin have been working hard for a long time it turns down thyroid hormones.  Better thyroid function allows better metabolism long-term
  • reduces insulin resistance.  Insulin is a fat-storing nutrient, however, our cells need it on a moment by moment basis.  When we are insulin resistant, nearly everything we eat turns to fat.
  • reduces leptin resistance.  Leptin is another hormone involved in both fat-storing/accumulation and fat-burning.  In the August 2007 issue of the Journal of Endocrinology, a paper appeared which states: ” HCG significantly stimulates the secreation of the pro-adipogenic factor, leptin, from human adipose tissue’.
  • blood pressure:  we have seen significant reduction of blood pressure on HCG which is also controlled partially by the hypothalamus in the brain (where HCG is released from and helps to balance)
  • blood sugar:  ditto!  As per blood pressure, we find that people’s blood sugar balances and highs and lows tend to disappear.  As long as consolidation is done correctly, clients then determine beautifully which foods throw their blood sugar out – it’s often sugar and grains.

HCG is really great for so many things in our bodies.  If you need to lose over 5 kilos, it could be a great way to kick your hormones into better health.

Quenching cortisol and reducing inflammation – turning back another reason for weight gain…

Monday, October 29th, 2012

From an HCGer:      I like your statement on inflammation and cortisol switching off your thyroid. I did not know this. Besides HCG, what else can you use to reduce inflammation and turn on the thyroid again. I take Turmeric

Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory – the types and usefulness depends on the grade, quality and dose taken.  Some aren’t great.  We love the type of turmeric in liquid herbs as well as products (stocked at New  Leaf) such as Inflavonoid Intensive Care.

Switching down cortisol and stress hormones, which create inflammation, can be achieved by a combination of several herbal combinations and nutritional formulas.  Herbs such as passionaflower and valerian, skullcap, Californian poppy, withania, Siberian ginseng, licorice, rehmannia, oats – are adaptogenic herbs – they tone the nerves and adrenals, quench cortisol, reduce inflammation caused through the nervous system.

B Complex supports adrenal production, Magnesium and Calcium both bind nervous system neurotoxins and calm it down.  We love products such as CalmX which settles cortisol and has huge doses of magnesium, calcium and B complex in it.  It’s great for people with panic attacks too…

Products such as Adrenotone quench cortisol, support adrenals and boost thyroid function, Neurocalm, Resilian (teariness, lack of emotional resiliance), Relaxan (PMT, hormonal imbalances, irritability and high stress levels), Stressan (poor sleep levels, anger, excess ‘chi’ in the body, can’t settle down), Adaptan (panic attacks, emotional exhaustion and anxiety), Proxan (depression, anger, crankiness and poor sleep) all settle cortisol levels.  Neurocalm calms the nervous system and improves sleep quality.

You can’t switch ‘on’ the thyroid without turning down the adrenals/cortisol switch.  It really need to be done simultaneously.  Iodine and tyrosine are both required to make thyroxine.  Bladderwrack is a herb high in iodine, all seaweed sources will have some iodine.  Products such as Metagenics Thyrobalance, Mediherb ThyroCo, Thorne Iodine & Tyrosine, Metagenics EnergyX and Adrenotone all support thyroid function.

Different products work in different ways and have effective treatments for different symptomatology.

Let us help you get your nervous system back on track!

HCG reduces inflammatory markers in Bio-Impedance Analysis…

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012
Inflammation decreases during HCG: I’ve had clients who have struggled with weight for years, and HCG turns them around brilliantly. Did you know that inflammation and weight gain go hand in hand?
* BMI over 30 means the fat tissue releases over 32 inflammatory hormones (that’s only 20% more than optimal weight)
* Inflammation switches off feel-good hormones which can be crucial in helping us maintain our enthusiasm for weight loss
* Inflammation switches on the adrenals, cortisol which switch off thyroid (which controls our metabolism)
* Stress does all of these things and more…
* Inflammation is also the key to developing cancer, heart disease and diabetes… a great reason to get your BMI’s back in the perfect range…

Good luck and keep the faith. HCG works!
