What should you spend on the HCG Diet? How much is too much?
In summary, you don’t need to spend $500 to have success on the HCG protocol. I’ve worked with the prescription HCG injections for several years. At one time I was of the belief that the prescription HCG product was the ONLY real HCG product. The prescription HCG is often manufactured at a boutique style compounding pharmacy that produces individualized medicine. It also requires a prescription from an MD or Nurse Practitioner and there are significantly more liability issues with any prescribed medicine, especially if involves injections. As a result of the aforementioned, the prescription HCG is considerably more expensive and clinics have to pass those costs onto the consumers. I was forced to charge between $400 and $500 for a 30-40 day diet protocol. The results were good, but I lost many patients because it was simply not in their budgets. Many asked if I offered HCG drops and at the time, I did not. Most had seen the positive results of the HCG drops among family or friends and were looking to do a similar protocol involving the drops. I began to do some research and was directed to an FDA approved homeopathic provider out of Utah. After several conversations in which I was assured that their homeopathic HCG diet drops would provide same or better results than the prescription HCG I was using, I decided to give it a try.
Needless to say, I’m glad I did. In fact, I no longer even carry a prescription HCG product. Occasionally I get patients that are determined to do the HCG injections because they feel that by injecting themselves with a needle, it is therefore more therapeutic, but that’s just not the case. You don’t need to spend $500 and inject yourself with a needle to achieve excellent results. You simply need the proper protocol and a reliable HCG product preferably purchased from a medical professional. There are several fly-by-night retailers of HCG on the internet trying to make a quick buck on a hot industry, so be cautious. Also stay away from products that are labeled “hormone free.” As HCG is a hormone, I don’t understand any logic to this at all. If you have questions about your HCG diet protocol or product you can email me at DrZ@InsideOutWellness.net or post them to our HCG 2.0 Facebook Page.
