hCG True or False
The internet is a great way to gather knowledge and understanding. Unfortunately it also provides a lot of misinformation when it comes to marketing and selling homeopathic products.
Homeopathic hCG has no hCG in it, therefore it doesn't work as well as the injections.
Thousands of educated medical doctors and health practitioners already understand the benefit of using homeopathic solutions along with standard medical practices. Several clinics that have offered hCG injections, now offer both injections and drops and some have even switched to just the homeopathic hCG products. Why? Because the homeopathic drops work just as well!
Homeopathy is a well
respected form of medicine
used worldwide. It is based on a science that dates back to the 1700's. The FDA has
been regulating the manufacturing
of homeopathic products
similar to that of
pharmaceuticals since 1938.
The science behind a homeopathic tincture is to minimize the physical content of a substance that is reactive to the body, while potentizing the body's reaction to the biological signature of the substance through succession and dilution of the substance.
This makes homeopathic remedies much safer than their pharmaceutical counterparts. That is why the FDA allows homeopathic remedies to be sold over the counter without a prescription.
The alcohol in a homeopathic solution kills or neutralizes the hCG.
Alcohol does not kill the hCG in a homeopathic solution. Alcohol has been used for more than 200 years in the manufacturing of homeopathic remedies. It was in fact originally used by Hahnemann, the father of homeopathy.
Alcohol is used as a preservative. It is described in the HPUS (Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of The United Sates) as part of the manufacturing process. We use non-GMO Kosher alcohol.
Remedies can be made without alcohol, in plain water, but it will limit the stability of the product
and the expiration date
will be shortened considerably.
Remedies can also be made using other preservatives but most of them are known to decrease the integrity of the original ingredient.
The percentage of alcohol is small ~ 16% or less and the per-dose amount is minimal. In 10 drops of homeopathic hCG, not even one drop is alcohol.
There is no Prescription hCG measured in "IU's".
The only non-prescription hCG available in the USA is in a homeopathic form. Homeopathy is measured by a potentization equation of succession and dilution.
Example (6X, 12X, 30X 60X).
Any form of hCG measured in "IU's" would have to be by prescription.
We have seen homeopathic
hCG solutions on the market
that misrepresent their tincture by trying to state both "IU's"
and their homeopathic
equation. This is simply a fraudulent misrepresentation
of the product.
Some declare that their
hCG is FDA approved.
The FDA has not approved
hCG for weight loss. In fact the FDA published its opinion on hCG and weight loss back in 1975. See below:
"Since 1975, the FDA has required labeling and advertising of hCG to state: 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."
The FDA does oversee and regulate homeopathic pharmacies in the USA that manufacture hCG and other remedies.
Each tincture should be registered with the FDA, which then issues a national drug code for that homeopathic formula. This is called an NDC number. Always make sure that any homeopathic product you use has their NDC number printed on the label.
A lot number should also be printed on the bottle. This is for the sake of quality control and complies with the FDA regulations enabling the tracking of a product in case of a recall.
On your homeopathic hCG label should also be the manufacture date, NOT the expiration date but when the product was manufactured. This insures the freshness of your product.
The NDC number, lot number, Manufacture Date and a comprehensive list of ingredients including the homeopathic equations of each active ingredient is the best way to insure you are getting a quality product.
hCG is harvested from the placenta of an unborn fetus. Or someone claiming they use a higher grade of hCG.
hCG is harvested from the urine of pregnant women. It is extracted and purified to make
a pharmaceutical grade hCG which can then be used
for injections or for the
purpose of making a homeopathic solution.
