Weight Loss

HCG Program

The HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Diet is a weight loss program that helps you lose weight with the combination of daily HCG subcutaneous injections and a very low-calorie diet. The concept of the program is based on the power of HCG to change a person’s metabolism. HCG is a pregnancy hormone that is produced in the placenta and when present in the body, it controls many metabolic functions of the body, including stimulating fat loss. Combined with a special 500-800 calories a day diet, HCG can force your body to utilize the stored fat in your body for energy, thus losing weight rather rapidly. Exercise is not required to lose weight on this diet and only light exercise is permitted. Patients can lose up to 15lbs on our 3-week program, and up to 25lbs on our 6-week program.

HCG FAQs

Anyone can have success losing weight on the HCG program. Men typically lose more than women, but all genders can lose a significant amount of weight quickly.

Our patients are medically supervised to ensure they lose weight safely on the HCG program. When completed as directed, our HCG program can help our patients lose weight safely and efficiently.

It is possible to complete more than one HCG program, but a break is recommended between each 3 or 6-week stint.

Semaglutide

Semaglutide (sold under the brand names Waygovy or Ozempic) is an FDA-approved weight loss medication that is administered weekly by subcutaneous injection.  Semaglutide was FDA-approved for weight loss in 2021 and it has been shown to reduce body weight by up to 18% in 8 weeks. This under-the-skin injection is the first FDA-approved drug for chronic weight management in obese or overweight adults since 2014. Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake.  There are no dietary restrictions with this doctor-backed, personalized weight loss program. Semaglutide can be combined with exercise to speed up weight loss, but it is not required. 

Semaglutide FAQs

Semaglutide can help reduce appetite and cravings, which helps individuals control their calorie intake. The medication also improves insulin sensitivity to regulate blood sugar, which can impact how effectively the body uses fat for energy.

Absolutely! Most people use Semaglutide injections from 2 months up to a year, depending on how much weight they need to lose. We can tailor your program to match your weight loss goals.

Semaglutide is an ideal option for anyone who is looking for a weight management option that will help them meet their health and wellness goals. Semaglutide is FDA-approved, making it safe and proven effective for substantial weight loss.

MIC B12 Fat Burner Shots

Our fat burner injections increase energy, boost metabolism, and burn fat to aid in weight loss. Fat Burner shots are formulated with a compound of ingredients; the base of this treatment is vitamin B12, the other ingredients include fat-mobilizing and metabolism-increasing amino acids – MIC stands for L-Methiomine, Inositol and Choline. The vitamins and amino acids in our MIC B12 fat burner injection help your body burn unwanted fat and remove toxins clogging up your metabolic rate.  These injections work best when used in conjunction with other weight loss measures, including dietary or lifestyle changes, exercise and/or medical weight loss programs.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Weight Loss

Without the right balance of hormones, your body loses the ability to regulate the processes that lead to weight loss. This results in a slower metabolism, an increase in abdominal fat, and less energy for exercise. There is good news – you can reverse your hormone imbalance and restore your ability to lose weight by simply replenishing the hormones you’ve lost. Many patients seek hormone replacement therapy to help with weight loss by balancing hormones to help promote increased energy and improved metabolism performance.

L-Thermo Lean

L-Thermo Lean is a customized weight loss pack that contains 3 supplements to assist in burning fat, boosting metabolism and naturally suppressing appetite. These supplements are safe and effective for supporting your weight loss efforts. The L-Thermo Lean pack includes:

 

  • CLA Complex which assists in weight loss and fat burning. When CLA is taken as a supplement as part of a weight loss program, it helps the body break down fat more efficiently. 
  • Metabolic Support supplement which includes Vitamin C, B6, L-Glutamine and Chromium as a few of the ingredients.  These vitamins, minerals and amino acids work synergistically to assist in burning calories and regulating blood sugar. 
  • Natural Appetite Support supplement which offers effective appetite control without the negative side effects of stimulants.  

 

Our L-Thermalean supplements can be combined with other weight loss or diet programs to accelerate fat loss by suppressing the appetite and supporting a healthy metabolism.  

At Arcadia Wellness Center, we provide hormone testing to determine whether our patients can benefit from hormone replacement therapy. If you are overweight and have a hormone imbalance, HRT may help restore a healthier metabolism to assist with weight loss.

No – hormone replacement therapy can benefit all genders that have experienced weight gain due to hormone imbalance. Men with low testosterone often gain fat and lose muscle – testosterone replacement injections can stimulate fat loss and increased muscle mass. 

Yes. Hormone replacement therapy is not a weight loss program by itself. It is meant to restore your natural hormone balance for improved metabolic function, which can help some patients lose weight easier. Many of our patients benefit from HRT combined with one of our other weight loss programs – we can create a personalized weight loss treatment plan that includes HRT.
