The Natural HCG Diet Program

The Natural HCG diet facilitated by Dr. Cara Phillipo ND and Dr. Robert Madda ND at The Natural Path in Portland, Oregon is based on the results of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons' 40 years of clinical trials at the Salvator Mutidi International Hospital in Rome, Italy.  For years Dr. Simeons grappled with the fundamental problems of obesity which eventually led him to discover the beneficial aspects of HCG to weight loss and maintenance. In the 16 years of Dr. Simeons' clinical experience with HCG, he recorded thousands of success stories


What exactly is HCG and the HCG Diet


HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadatropin, is a hormone that targets the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is sometimes referred to as the “control center” for automatic hormone functions, such as processing and utilizing energy stores. In his research, Dr. Simeons found that many people experienced difficulty losing body fat because the body only utilizes energy in long-term fat stores as a last resort. Because of this, when one diets they normally lose muscle and normal fat (used to protect organs and keep skin healthy) first, retaining abnormal fat despite the best of efforts. However, this changed with Dr. Simeon’s ground-breaking discovery.


In his clinical trials, Dr. Simeons found that using HCG “informs” the hypothalamus to mobilize abnormal fat stores for energy use first.The Natural† HCG Program is a six-week regime based on the diet outlined by Dr. Simeons. The program begins with 26 days of a restricted low-calorie diet and injections of HCG, followed by three weeks of a somewhat restricted diet with no caloric restriction. Even though very little calories a day are being consumed, the HCG hormone will help release an additional 1,500 or more calories per day from abnormal fat stores, enabling one to maintain the diet without feeling hungry or tired. Additionally, the HCG diet has the long-term effect of re-setting your metabolism so that you can maintain your new weight.



 The Natural HCG program is tailored to your unique needs and is medically supervised throughout the process. Dr. Madda is with you every step of the way to ensure that you stay physically and emotionally healthy during the whole process and that you achieve your weight-loss goals.

Disclaimer HCG is a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets.
