FDA recommendation on HCG
HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it 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 restricted diets.
Bioidentical Hormones are not necessarily natural or completely risk free
Bioidentical Hormones is not a medical term and it is not at all equivalent to Natural Hormones. Amaya clinic promotes Iso Molecular Hormone replacement Therapy which means using hormone replacement therapies with hormones which are very much similar to the hormones produced by our body. Bioidentical does not mean Natural Hormones. Even so called Bioidentical hormones AKA iso molecular hormones require at least one single step in the lab to be extracted from its precursor “Disogenin” produced from Soya Bean or Mexican yam.
Hormones are chemicals, irrespective of the the source from the lab or from Soy or Yam. It is possible that patients may have similar effects of excess or deficiency like any other
Pharmaco-therapeutic agent. Judicious monitoring of the patients taking hormone replacement therapy is mandatory using labs and clinical correlation by a qualified physician is absolutely mandatory and should not be promoted or misjudged as risk free alternatives of conventional hormone replacement therapies.
Iso-molecular hormone replacement therapy is completely voluntary and the risk and benefits are shared equally.
