Of the hundreds of diets over the past 20 years, more and more focus has been direct at the HCG Diet. Based on a concept more than 50 years old, the HCG Diet plan has been found to offer rapid, safe and easy weight loss. Researchers are in agreement that the more overweight an individual is the more likely they are to experience serious health issues.

The HCG diet plan offers individuals, whether 10, 20, 50 or even 100 lbs or more overweight, the chance to become the person they have always dreamed about- normal weight and healthy. Although the diet has been around for more than 55 years, it's only in the past two or three years that it has become popular. The first 55 years of the diet were limited by the need for daily injections and a rather rigid 500 calorie a day diet. It's only recently that most dieters have learned that successful weight loss can occur with sublingual (under the tongue) administration of the hormone while eating a food plan consisting of 800 calories a day rather than limited to 500 calories a day.

The current HCG diet is associated with so many advantages that they are hard to list in this short article. They range from rapid weight loss without hunger or need for exercise to improvement in sleep apnea, cholesterol and, in diabetics, blood sugar control. Not only are there great advantages from quick weight loss but also from the permanent change in the eating habits of the dieter. Here are only a few of the many advantages of the HCG diet:

Weight Loss is Fast: It's so fast, it's practically instantaneous. The dieter notes half to one pound of fat loss almost every day. Weight loss continues at a steady pace, and there is rarely a day without some weight loss- thanks to the HCG hormone.

Even more exciting is the fact that most of the weight loss is from the difficult to reach places-around the belly, the buttocks and thighs.

Hunger and Cravings Are Eliminated: Whether the dieter uses the original 500 calorie diet plan or the new 800 calorie plans, he is amazed by the absolute lack of hunger. The dieter's cravings are almost absent and the meals become smaller and smaller. Often the dieter needs to be reminded to eat!

Exercise is NOT required for the Rapid Weight Loss: In Dr Simeons' original plan it was suggested that dieters avoid exercise. More recently, many physicians who use the HCG diet have taken a different position. They believe that some daily exercise should be encouraged but not to the level of exhausting the dieter or driving them crazy when they are unable to do it.

Weight Loss is Safe: Let's face it, the HCG diet has been around for more than 50 years without any evidence of safety issues. Those that doubt it's benefits have looked for years to find a problem. Aside from a few common, usually insignificant transient problems like fatigue, lightheadedness, and hair loss, no one has experienced any significant complications. The few problems that have been noted occur with every diet where the dieter loses a lot of weight and are self limited.

Weight Loss Appears Permanent: The maintenance stage of the diet (phase 3) helps the dieter obtain control over his weight. His new healthy eating habits become a lifetime of better eating which become permanent. The dieter has an improved awareness of high sugar and high fat foods as he learns to read food labels. With an improved awareness of health, the HCG dieter will not need to see a physician as often as he did when he was overweight.

The HCG Diet is Affordable. Other than the HCG preparation, there is nothing for the dieter to buy- NO special foods, bars, shakes, pills, supplements, dieting aids or unusual foods or drinks. Reduced food consumption results in a lower food bill, and the HCG diet products are more than affordable.

The HCG Diet Leads to Improvement in Many Metabolic Parameters: Almost as instantly as the HCG dieter notices he can fit into clothes he has not been able to wear for years, is the rapid fall in blood pressure, cholesterol, blood lipids and in diabetics, a fall in blood sugar. Often the dieter can lower the doses of his medications, and in some cases stop them completely.

HCG Dieters Experience Improvement in Arthritis: Arthritis of the back, hips, feet and knees are directly related to extra weight gain. Each pound of extra weight results in 3 pounds of extra pressure on the knees and six times the pressure on the hips. Losing weight lessens pain by reducing stress on the affected joints. Increased body weight is a serious factor in the development of osteoarthritis particularly in the knees, which carry the brunt of weight day in and day out. Research has shown that losing extra weight can help people who already have osteoarthritis as well as preventing the development of osteoarthritis in the future.

The HCG diet is a powerful dieting plan because it helps the dieter lose weight quickly, safely and easily. Dieters appreciate the fact that HCG diet offers a dieter an efficient and long-lasting solution to excessive weight issues.

This dieting plan offers a safe, drastic and rapid weight loss, and it helps the dieter relearn how to treat their bodies as they develop a healthy relationship with food.

    How likely is someone to die from lupus?
    My dad has had lupus for 2-3 years now. So far, it has affected his muscles, joints, and caused him to be tired, sensitive to sunlight, and has affected his kidneys. Because it has affected one organ, would it most likely affect others?

    Does anyone know of statistics for the death rate of this disease?

    Also any general or treatment info would be great.

    Or if you have Lupus.. It would be great to read your story.


    1. Healthy

      Sever lupus can be life threatening.

      Healthy helpful steps to prevent lupus flares include:

      * maintain a healthy diet
      * get enough rest and quiet
      * pay attention to your body
      * moderately exercise when possible
      * limit the time you spend in the sun
      * develop coping skills to help limit stress

    Have you been diagnosed with drug induced Lupus ?
    !0 years ago began having problem with elevated blood pressure. Was treated with the usually prescribed meds. Within the past ten years I have had a variety of unusual and often preplexing symptoms that the doctors couldn’t find good answers for. Lots of guesses and lots of unsuccessful treatments and increased frustration and misery until recently. The diagnosis is drug induced Lupus and it is believed to be caused by my blood pressure meds. Bingo. The symptoms have developed over the same period I’ve been on the meds. My question is: Any known effective alternatives for Blood Pressure Control? Anyone else with Lupus have bizarre skin and hair folllicle issues? Any one know a reputable doctor in Kansas City Missouri to advise on alternative treatments? Any one know of a web site to purchase alternative B/P treatments that you or someone you know have had personal experience with? Are there suggestions for a great support website for Lupus?

    1. Healing Oneself

      Hi WIngsOfGrace

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue. Also learning about detoxifying the blood by doing colon and liver cleanses will change your health forever.

      Food allergies (there is a 100 percent correlation between lupus and food allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, parasites, candidiasis, bowel problems, and digestive enzyme deficiencies can create symptoms that mimic or exacerbate SLE. Migraines, epilepsy, and psychoses must also be ruled out before a proper course of treatment can be decided upon.

      Both forms of lupus primarily strike young women (90% of cases) and young children.

      The drugs hydralazine, procainamide, and beta blockers can cause false-positive readings of SLE, and can also produce a lupus-like condition that disappears when the drugs are no longer taken. Birth control pills and environmental stresses can also exacerbate lupus symptoms.


      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and limit your intake of dairy, beef products, and polyunsaturated oils. Also screen for food allergies and avoid all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Increase your intake of vegetables, especially green, yellow, and orange, and consume non-farm-raised fish several times a week.

      Herbs: Supplementation with Swedish bitters with each meal can increase hydrochloric acid production. Also drink an infusion of nettle twice a day. Other useful herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, pau d`arco, and red clover

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

      Hyperthermia: Hyperthermia involves artificially creating fever in the body for the purpose of boosting immune function. Hyperthermia can be a highly effective method of eliminating toxins and heavy metals, as well as infectious bacteria and viruses that cannot survive in elevated body temperatures.

      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy or hyperthermia treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Drink the juice of carrot, celery, flaxseed oil, black currant oil, and garlic.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Hydrochloric acid (HCL) deficiency is common in people with lupus, therefore HCL supplements with each meal is advised. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A with beta carotene, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, essential fatty acids, proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals, digestive enzymes taken with meals, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-cystine.

      Topical Treatment: PABA cream applied topically can help ease symptoms.

      Best of health to you

    How do I deal with lupus with out taking drugs?
    I have had lupus for three years, but I just started get treatment from a lupus specialist at Magee womens hospital. I take a small dose blood pressure medication. But my doctor wants me to take plaqunil and prednesone. But those drugs have so many side affects and I hear so many bad things about how they help one thing but then something else breaks down, Then you are on this cycle of adding on medicine after medicine. I want to live, but I don’t want to lose my eyesight, have liver problems, or other complication caused by these medicines. I know their has to be a way of life change, or natural medicine that will help and have less or no side affects. I lived three years without medicine or help. But I do notice that I had more flares lately. I need to make a decision, I recieved my plaqunil in the mail a week ago, i need to decide if I am going to take or find something else that help to present to my doctor at my next appointment. I want to live but not taking alot of medicine

    What is a good diet regimen for a lupus patient to follow? What foods should be avoided?
    I would like to know what foods to stay away from and what foods may help people diagnosed with autoimmune diseases. What is a good diet regimen for this diagnosis? Are there any foods that are harmful or that should be totally avoided by lupus patients?

    1. Linda R

      Lupus patients should avoid alfalfa sprouts. They stimulate the immune system, just the opposite of what we need.

      Outside of that, here are some basic guidelines that work for me.

      1. Eat lots, and I mean lots, of fresh fruits and vegetables
      2. Limit or eliminate animal fat. We have a high rate of premature atherosclerosis. A healthy heart diet is essential.
      3. Limit processed foods
      4. Eat plenty of fiber (#1 will accomplish that)
      5. Get regular mild to moderat exercise-it improves immune function, lubricates joints and elevates mood. Ask your rheumy what would be good for you.
      6. Do not take echinacea or goldenseal. They also stimulate immune system.
      7. Some lupus patients find wheat gluten to be inflammatory, but many of us have no problem with it.
      8. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t put it in your mouth.
      9. Fish oil is anti-inflammatory. You can eat cold water fish like salmon to get that. A small amount of nuts is good, too.
      10. Make sure you get plenty of calcium. Our meds make us prone to osteoporosis. Exercise helps with that, too.
