Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)

These prescription injections are composed of a hormone that the placenta produces naturally during pregnancy. HCG is an excellent addition to a healthy exercise program and a well-balanced, low-calorie diet. When used effectively, it can lead not only to better weight-loss results, but can also augment your sleep, mood, and energy.

Cornerstone Wellness weight-loss treatments

These customized meal and workout plans are available only through a physician and are an excellent alternative to HCG for patients who suffer from metabolic syndrome (a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels — that occur together). The physician-supervised plans are aimed at increasing your muscle mass while you lose fat, and have been proven to optimize fat loss, prevent a decline in your metabolic rate (BMR), stabilize glucose and insulin levels, and reduce hunger and cravings.

Prescription medications

These can be especially helpful for obese patients whose weight-controlling brain functions might be impaired. Certain medications can help correct neurological damage that might be preventing the stomach, intestines, and fat cells from properly communicating with the brain to regulate hunger and fat storage.

 

Vitamin injections

Lipotropic B12 injections can increase healthy liver function and stimulate your body’s hormones to release stubborn fat stores and increase total body health and wellness.

 

SculpSure® body sculpting

SculpSure is a noninvasive and nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that uses a laser to heat up and “melt” away fat cells beneath your skin. SculpSure is technically a “fat loss” treatment that permanently destroys the number of fat cells in your body and has proven effective at helping both men and women eliminate fat in the upper abdominal area, lower abdominal area, flanks or “love handles,” and underneath the chin.

HCG

HCG in a combination with the HCG diet results in a significant weight loss from targeted areas where fat deposits are likely to occur. It also moves fat into the blood stream where enzymes can break down fat more easily. In pregnant women, HCG often causes feeling of nausea in early stages of pregnancy. In non-pregnant women, HCG allows you to eat very little and still be comfortable.
