Phentermine is the generic name for an appetite suppressant that has been approved for short-term use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The drug is also marketed under several other brand names, including Adipex, Phentride, Pro-Fast and Supramine, among many others. When taken as directed by a qualified healthcare provider, phentermine can be an effective component of a supervised weight loss program, which also includes a low-calorie diet and regular exercise. If you are overweight, the temporary, short-term use of phentermine (for a period of up to 12 weeks) can help jumpstart your supervised weight loss treatment plan. Phentermine curbs your appetite, making it easier to establish healthy nutrition, eating and lifestyle habits you can maintain over time. As it becomes easier for you to make consistent healthy lifestyle choices and you start losing weight, you can stop taking phentermine. If you continue on a path of healthy living, you will achieve, and eventually maintain, your desired body weight. Phentermine is classified as an anorectic drug, which decreases your appetite, so you consume less food (i.e., calories) and lose weight as a result. It works by causing the hypothalamus region of the brain to stimulate the adrenal glands so they release a chemical called norepinephrine into the circulation system. In turn, the norepinephrine triggers the body’s fight-or-flight response, minimizing any hunger sensation. In addition, phentermine encourages the body to break down stored fat cells.
The HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) weight loss program utilizes a natural hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in conjunction with a specially designed low calorie diet. The HCG hormone works with the hypothalamus to control hunger and trigger the release of stored fat cells to be metabolized for energy. HCG has helped thousands of patients worldwide lose the stubborn body fat that accumulates in areas such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs. At Forever Young Health and Wellness our weight-loss program involves HCG injections along with a 500-calorie a day diet free of fat, sugar and starch. The use of HCG will help one lose abnormal fat, rather than normal fat. There are three types of fat: 1. Reserve fat—This is the fat that the body draws upon when one skips a meal and their body needs energy. 2. Structural fat: This fat is located in between the organs to cushion them and in between the joins and bones. 3. Abnormal fat known as the “fat bank”. The body stores this excess in case of starvation. One needs reserve fat and structural fat to survive. However, one can do without the abnormal fat as this type of fat causes health problems. Using HCG injections will re-sculpt one’s body by losing the abnormal fat. Because the HCG program targets the abnormal fat, HCG patients do not end up losing their muscle mass. In addition to losing weight, many patients who complete the HCG protocol will also experience other health benefits, including an improvement in cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar. Whether you have been diagnosed as clinically obese, or you just want to trim off a few extra pounds and get that bikini body back, Forever Young Health and Wellness can customize an HCG Diet Plan that is right for you. Daily supplementation of HCG dosed specifically for your body’s needs and a custom low calorie meal plan designed to get optimal weight loss results can help you achieve your weight loss goals and discover a thinner you. It is recommended that patients participate in a modest exercise routine or some type of regular physical activity while on an HCG Diet Plan. Walking is a great exercise that is encouraged and contributes to your health in a variety of ways. The most valuable aspect of our HCG weight-loss regimen at Forever Young Health and Wellness is the support system we provide for our patients. You can rest assured that you will not be doing this on your own. Our dedicated and caring staff will be there every step of the way to answer your questions, keep you motivated and help you toward your ultimate goal. Please note HCG is FDA approved as a prescription drug for the treatment of female infertility, and other medical conditions. It is not approved for weight loss.
Fat burning injections contain lipotropic nutrients, a vitamin and amino acid blend, which play an important role in the body’s metabolism and clearance of fat. Not only do they assist the body with fat metabolism, they provide a great energy boost to assist you in your weight loss goals! Additionally, these injections are highly successful in increasing energy in patients on a low calorie diet.
Lipotropic injections also provide other important health benefits. Lipotropic nutrients are compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver. They aid in transporting fat in the blood stream, which can lower bad cholesterol and remove fats in the liver.
Key Amino Acids and Vitamins for Excessive Deposition of Fat:
Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which supports the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
Methione is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids (cysteine and cystine are others) and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release.
Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely related to choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.
Vitamin B-6 is required by your body for utilization of energy in the foods you eat, production of red blood cells, and proper functioning of nerves. It is used to treat and prevent vitamin B6 deficiency resulting from poor diet, certain medications, and some medical conditions.
Vitamin B-12 is another nutrient necessary for proper central nervous system function. Since red meats are the most significant source of Vitamin B12 in our diets, many of us are deficient and do not realize it. Many people who take this as a supplement on a regular basis report they have more energy, healthier immune systems, less allergies, stress, depression, more stamina, better sleep and less frequent, less severe headaches. It is now being used to treat early onset Alzheimer’s disease and as a treatment for children with autism and similar disabilities.
