News Update – Homeopathic HCG is Illegal
Because of the dangers of homeopathic HCG, the FDA orders removal of these products from the marketplace. From a recent news release: The FDA and the Federal Trade Commission said over-the-counter weight loss products containing human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) are fraudulent and illegal, and the agencies have told seven manufacturers to stop selling them.

“Homeopathic HCG” Drops Not Recommended as Safe Weight Loss Method
Physicians Report –
Weight loss physicians state when following the hCG Diet Protocol, “Homeopathic HCG” drops do not contain sufficient levels of the hCG hormone required to lose weight.
Physicians report there is a profound difference between Pharmaceutical hCG hormone and “Homeopathic HCG” Drops. Homeopathic HCG has been shown to contain a variety of the following impurities: water, alcohol, vitamins, filtered microscopic trace amounts of hCG if any at all and various herbal stimulants; therefore, “Homeopathic HCG” has no relationship to the hCG Hormone (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin).
Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine, treating patients with heavily diluted preparations. Depending on the dilution, homeopathic remedies may not contain any pharmacologically active molecules, and for such remedies to have pharmacological effect would violate fundamental principles of science. Examples of the dilutions in these homeopathic solutions:
|108||Allowable concentration of arsenic in U.S. drinking water|
|1012||A common HCG Homeopathic dilution, about pinch of salt in both the North and South Atlantic Oceans|
|10200||A new HCG Homeopathic dilution. As there are only about 1080 atoms in the entire observable universe, this dilution would thus require 10320 more universes to contain one molecule of the active substance.|
Pharmaceutical hCG hormone can only be obtained by a written prescription from a licensed physician, and cannot be purchased off the Internet. If “HCG drops” are purchased off the Internet, they are most likely “Homeopathic HCG” which does NOT require a prescription. Since Homeopathic HCG does NOT contain a sufficient quantity of real pharmaceutical hCG hormone for the purpose of weight loss.
Dr. Simeons, the founder of the hCG Diet, suggests pharmaceutical hCG for the weight loss must contain a minimum of 125 IU (international units) of pharmaceutical hCG hormone. Pharmaceutical hCG must only be prescribed by a physician and dispensed from a reputable US based pharmacy.
The HCG Diet is based on hCG hormone triggering the body to release stored fats and deliver nutrition to supplement a low caloric intake. If a person is not getting this supplementation of calories using a homeopathic mixture, he most likely will deplete lean muscle tissue and will not capitalize on releasing excess stored fat reserves. From this, metabolism can slow down with the loss of lean muscle mass and the feeling of hunger. Furthermore, weakness and fatigue will most certainly occur. Additionally, the health risks can be damaging for dieters that are unaware of potential underlying medical conditions because the proper physician supervision, blood testing and comprehensive physical exam were not performed or required.
Some misleading advertisements to take notice of that are promoting “Homeopathic HCG” may include the following terms: “Prescription Strength HCG Drops”, “Highest Quality HCG Drops”, “High Purity HCG Drops”, “Physician Grade”, “HCG Professional Grade” or “Prescription Grade HCG Drops”.
Also, “Homeopathic HCG” drops are not to be confused with HCG sublingual drops. Sublingual hCG, not an injection, is another method of administering pharmaceutical hCG under the tongue. Often people confuse homeopathic drops with sublingual hCG.
