  • Do you have symptoms of fatigue, weight gain or inability to lose weight, hair loss, constipation, dry skin and trouble focusing and concentrating? Although these symptoms can be related to many other hormonal and medical conditions, they are often the result of a sluggish or low functioning thyroid gland. If left untreated, reduced or irregular thyroid function can worsen especially with advancing age, menopause, increased weight gain, environmental toxins and quite commonly chronic stress and unhealthy lifestyle choices. Fortunately, the thyroid gland can be rebalanced through healthy, nutritional treatments, restoring metabolism. In many other cases, prescriptive thyroid hormone can be used to those people who need more support. Natural desiccated thyroid or synthetic thyroid hormone can be prescribed, thereby boosting metabolic rate and helping the body to function optimally – the way it was designed. To learn more about thyroid gland disorders, treatment options and other ways to enhance your energy and health, please call today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kristi Tompkins, a Naturopathic Medical Doctor specializing in comprehensive hormone support and balance.

  • Imagine losing 20-30 pounds in just 40 days!  If you are carrying around extra weight and would like to say “Good Riddance” to your muffin top or love handles, there are countless weight loss options available. Always first and foremost, I strongly recommend healthy, nutritious meals and regular, consistent exercise as permanent lifestyle practices rather than a quick fix diet program that may lead to rebound weight gain.With that said, however, sometimes a temporary “diet” is just the thing to help jump start weight loss that further motivates you to lose even more and/ormaintain that weight. The HCG Diet Program has been around for decades and has been commonly and safely recommended to help people lose weight more efficiently than most standard diets. Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin, commonly referred to as hCG, is a hormone that is present in both men and women, but which is naturally and abundantly produced by the placenta in pregnant females. It is during pregnancy that this hormone controls the female’s metabolic functions through the hypothalamus in the brain. In non-pregnant women as well as men who are trying to lose weight, research suggests that hCG similarly increases the metabolism, similar to that which happens in a pregnant female.

    Back in the 1950’s, a British Endocrinology Physician, Dr. Albert T.W. Simeonsdiscovered that treating non-pregnant obese patients with injectable hCG hormone, while following a reduced calorie diet, allowed the body to burn fat at a more efficient rate. He later wrote and published a successful book about hCG called “Pounds and Inches” which has been received with both praise and controversy over the years.

    Today, numerous people of varying weight and size are choosing hCG for weight loss. The hCG used in the hCG diet weight loss program is a lower dosage compared to the hCG used for fertility treatments. The hCG used for weight loss purposes that is prescribed by Dr. Tompkins is pharmaceutical grade and is manufactured by reputable pharmaceutical companies and widely distributed to various compounding pharmacies.

    As everyone is unique in how quickly he or she loses weight, the average weight loss on the hCG diet is around 1-2 pounds per day compared to 1-2 pounds per week with many other diet programs. It is important to realize that results may vary depending on many factors, including other hormones like thyroid, as well as the number of calories consumed each day. Stored fat is released and used by the body for nourishment and then burned or expelled, resulting in weight loss. To prevent the fat cells from immediately taking in more fat, the specific and reduced calorie diet is an essential component of this diet program.

    Typical weight loss results are phenomenal! Dr. Tompkins has been prescribing HCG in both the injectable and sublingual forms to countless patients over the years and is continually amazed at how quickly people lose weight and also impressed by her patients commitment to this diet. At the end of the 40 day program, the average weight loss is usually between 20-30 pounds. There are additional benefits of the HCG Diet Weight Loss Programthat include reduced blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose, decreased joint and muscle pain, improved digestion, better energy, deeper sleep and a greater sense of well-being.
