MEDICALLY SUPERVISED WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM
We understand the struggle so many face when trying to use diet and exercise alone to lose weight. They do their best to cut calories and get active but see very little change from their efforts. Many people give up after a few failed attempts and think their bodies just don’t have the ability to burn fat or function at the level of someone who has a normal metabolism.
What they don’t know is that hormone imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, stress and an accumulation of toxins are often associated with the inability to lose weight and keep it off.
How Hormones Influence Weight Gain
Estrogens, thyroid, cortisol, insulin and a toxic body are the main culprits responsible for weight gain that doesn’t budge when dieting. Each of the hormones mentioned helps regulate an area of bodily processes and our bodies do not function optimally when one or all of them are unbalanced.
The problem we see in nearly every male and female that has excess fat is estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance occurs when estrogen is out of balance, being too high in comparison to progesterone in women and testosterone in men. Estrogen makes fat and fat makes estrogen and estrogen makes fat which is a vicious cycle. It is important to reduce excess fat first or hormone optimization will be difficult.
Yes, estrogen dominance makes you fat, but worse, it sucks the life out of you, your zest for life. It is the syndrome that is making women’s and men’s moods go bipolar. It also causes PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, and a multitude of cancers, such as breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. You can see why we work at balancing hormones.
If you believe that you are suffering from estrogen dominance, K3 NOW will test your estrogen to progesterone ratio. Your P/E ratio should be 200 moles of progesterone to 1 mole of estrogen. The lower the ratio the more difficult it will be to lose weight. Schedule today to discover your ratio and find out how you can overcome this major block to losing weight. If you are also suffering from sleeping issues, anxiety and depression read more about the sex hormones below.
Thyroid hormones are responsible for regulating metabolism in every cell in the body. When an insufficient amount of thyroid hormones are produced, your body is unable to burn calories efficiently causing excess calories to be stored in your body as fat.
Cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, is released in the body during times of stress. Too much cortisol causes an increase in hunger and subsequently leads to weight gain.
Insulin is a hormone secreted by the pancreas in response to elevated blood glucose levels. Its main job is keeping blood sugar levels within a normal range. When too much glucose (sugar) is consumed, cells receive the energy they need but any leftover glucose is then converted to fat and stored in the body.
If you decide to become a client at K3 NOW for HCG, we will require a small panel of bloodwork before treatment begins. We will use the results to help identify any health issues that may be contributing to poor weight control.
How Toxins Prevent Weight Loss
We accumulate toxins in our bodies from the environment, food, skin care products, medications and various other exposures. As the toxins build over time, our body gets less and less efficient at removing them. The accumulation of these toxins in the bowel, liver and tissues creates a toxic PH which doesn’t allow your body to release fat from its reserves. In order to prepare your body for weight loss success you must first remove these toxins through a process called detoxification.
Nutrient Deficiencies and Weight Gain
Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients for good health. Without them, our bodies simply would not be able to function. Research has shown that people with the least amount of essential nutrients end up with the most weight problems. Nutrient deficiencies have a direct impact on weight gain by triggering food cravings, slowing down your metabolism and causing fatigue.
Our approach to weight loss involves addressing these underlying factors and tailoring a program to fit your needs. K3 NOW utilizes a combination of tools, in addition to our Diet NOW Plan, to help aid your weight loss. Each patient’s program is individually tailored based on goals, medical history and test results. Some of the options include, but are not limited to: HCG injections, safe appetite suppressants, detox, various lipotropic injections, nutraceutical supplements, hormone balancing, thyroid therapy and more!

What Is HCG
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, also known as HCG, is a glycoprotein that supports and aids normal function in both men and women. It is produced in large amounts during pregnancy, where it helps to ensure fetal health and development. HCG mobilizes the mother’s fat stores so the baby has a constant supply of energy and nutrients readily available at all times. It performs a similar function when used for weight loss by tricking your hypothalamus into releasing its reserved fat stores. This allows you to use those fat reserves for energy to maximize your weight loss potential.
How HCG Works For Weight Loss
Many physicians who offer HCG weight loss programs make their patients follow a strict 500 calorie diet to achieve significant results. We approach every person’s weight loss goals as an individual, which is why our office has adopted a modern approach to the outdated 500 calorie restriction most doctors still use. Instead of counting calories we focus on helping you make the right food choices so you can see immediate results and drastically improved health. We offer nutritional counseling and lifestyle coaching so you know how to have continued success well after your treatment is done.
When HCG injections are used in conjunction with a balanced, flexible and reduced calorie diet, it can elicit fast reductions in weight and improve overall body composition. Because HCG utilizes your body fat as an energy source, your appetite will naturally decrease and you typically do not experience hunger pains or weakness from following this plan.
We have designed this program to provide your body with the proper metabolic requirements needed to maintain lean muscle mass while burning body fat. HCG will work to reset your metabolism and reprogram appetite control functions in the brain to help sustain your weight loss progress. This will help stop your body from storing unnecessary fat once you’ve reached your goal and are no longer taking the injections.
Our program is a great choice for those who are ready to make a healthy lifestyle change. We tailor each program to meet your needs and offer different levels of program intensity based on your goals. Our staff will provide all the coaching, counseling and monitoring you need to make your program successful.
