Many of us are looking for ways to lose weight and keep it off. Dr. Paul de Jong can provide you an individualized plan to help you overcome the various struggles and pitfalls that you may encounter, and help you achieve the successful results you desire.
How Does Stress Affect Weight Gain?
Stress is one of the leading factors in weight gain. Your body can produce more cortisol—a hormone known to increase belly fat—even though you might be eating a proper diet. The thyroid gland and adrenal gland are closely related. So, stress can also cause decreased thyroid function which results in a lower metabolic rate. This means your body is burning fat off at a lower rate.
Since cortisol production also utilizes the same building blocks as our sex hormones like testosterone, DHEA and estrogen, high cortisol demand creates multiple imbalances which can contribute to weight gain. It is important to get these hormones balanced properly to optimize your chances of achieving long term weight loss.
There are two different paths to achieving an optimal weight: foundational changes to encourage better nutrition and weight loss, and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) therapy.
HCG Therapy For Weight Loss
HCH is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. HCG products are sold in all sorts of forms, including oral drops, pellets and sprays. Our patients who have gone on HCG therapy have reported losing between 20 to 40 pounds in six weeks. For some, that’s all they may need to lose. For others, it is a good start and a way to kickstart their extended weight loss journey. Dr. Paul de Jong also provides counselling at the end of the program, to help patients keep the weight off and monitor their lifestyle changes.
Your long-lost figure may not be as hard to uncover as you imagine. Together we will review your symptoms, discuss your lifestyle and objectives, and run comprehensive testing. Dr. Paul de Jong will construct a unique and individualized plan to help you best achieve your goals. Put science on your side and let medicine do some of the heavy lifting for you.
