There’s been a lot of recent publicity about Prescription Hormones, both negative and positive, particularly on some of the national TV channels. I know that there’s one not too long ago, where by they gave some positive and some negative concepts about Prescription Hormones. I think it’s important to understand that Prescription Hormones or called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin has been around since Adam and Eve. Actually, it’s produced at the time of ovulation in a woman when she ovulates on day 12 to 14.
And, also a man produces it every day because it stimulates the testicles to produce sperm, as well as testosterone. So something that’s been around for a long time. However, it came about the first studies done back in the 50’s with Dr. Simmons. It came from the idea that in women who are pregnant, their Prescription Hormones levels are very high. They start out about 50 units and by the time they’re at term they’re up at 30,000 to maybe 150,000 units. And one of the things that we’ve noticed in the past, when I was practicing OBGYN at a clinical professor of Baylor College of Medicine was that women who are pregnant could actually be put on diets.
They would lose weight. It wasn’t necessarily a calorie restricted diet but maybe around 1200 calories. And, what we notice is that they didn’t lose any muscle to speak of, they lost a lot of fat, and they weren’t hungry. And it was with this particular information that began to develop the idea that maybe that Prescription Hormones given in a non-pregnant state very well could do the same thing. And, that was what Dr. Simmons did in the 1950’s in his first series and since then there’s been a lot of very positive input as far as the results of Prescription Hormones.
And, those that have been basically telling people that it doesn’t work is because they haven’t tried it or they don’t care to know anything about it. I think it’s just a lack of knowledge, a lack of experience with it that makes it this way; and I believe over the next few years we’re going to see more interest in the Prescription Hormones diets as we clearly have shown here at NBH Lifetime Health, that it does work and we can achieve the goals we’re trying to meet.
