Resetting the Hypothalamus Gland

Last Modified on Jun 19, 2014

In the human body, the hypothalamus gland is a critical bridge between the endocrine system (hormonal system) and the nervous system. Located right at the center of the brain, the hypothalamus regulates many of the body's autonomic functions including internal temperature, body weight, sleep, saline balance, and the emotions.

In particular, the hypothalamus regulates hunger and thirst while playing a substantial role in the body's overall metabolic rates. For this reason, much attention has been paid to the hypothalamus gland as a potential target for promoting lasting weight loss. If the brain and body can be retrained to reduce the body's fat reserves and overall body weight via the hypothalamus, then we could enjoy long-lasting weight reduction.

One popular diet introduced by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in the 1950's seeks to "retrain" the hypothalamus through what he called the HCG Diet after the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone, a chemical he found to trigger fat metabolism among mothers following childbirth. Substantial questions about the effectiveness and indeed the safety of this diet exist, though it has continued to be popular despite the need for expensive injections or oral drops of the hormone to be taken as part of the diet.

Dr. Simeons Hcg Diet Protocol   2  0

Can we start a new subject about retraining the hypothalamus with the diet that Dr Simeon introduced in the 1970's? I believe it is called the Human c G?

[YEA]   "Hi Tricia. That would be a great idea. I myself did the diet and am now on Phase 3. It is the best diet I have ever been on. Dr. Siemons' book is free to download on the internet to get a better understanding.

Orrilia, Are you taking the shots, or are you doing the sublingual drops? I was wondering if anyone had ever tried the drops and if they are as efficient as the shots. I see that they sell the both on line. Anyone had experience with either of these?

Yes I am using sublingual drops presently, no experience with the 'shots'. So far I have slimmed down 8 kg during the first protocol (which lasted 23 days) and another 7.8 kg during my present protocol (23 days) but am extending it to 30 days.

[YEA]   "I did the HCG diet, this last year. I did it the way Dr Simeons originated it and that was with injections. I lost 37lbs on a 50 day round. I did another round to loose a total of 50lbs.. Wasn't hungry, it was safe, and I lost fat in all the right places. Easiest diet I have ever done. You can email me at (blondyjo99@aol.com) if you have any questions.

Hi Kay. I used the homeopathic drop which cost me $45.00 and lost 30 pounds in 54 days. If using the homeopathic hcg, you do not develop immunity as you would the real hcg drops. The best diet ever. Well, not really a diet but a resetting of your hypothalamus gland. It is a lifetime commitment but well worth the small sacrifice.

The drops sound much more appealing to me than the shots. Can you tell me the brand that you used? I'd like to purchase over the internet if possible. Thanks for sharing.

I started this diet last friday
8/10 to date 14/10 I have lost 2kg or about 4.4lbs, I am using the oral drops which I purchased online. Do be careful when buying online as some are asking 2/3 hundred dollars, these are homeopathic drops after all & should be nowhere near this price. I paid $20 aud for mine which included postage. I feel great, I am coping very well with the very low 500cal per day. I shall keep you informed with my weight loss, I am aiming for about 15kg altogether. Cheers

Hi Margaret from Toronto. Sorry for the delayed response. A friend of mine owns the only distribution company in Canada for HCG. Send me an email and I will give you her contact details. My email is estrelasuzy at gmail dot com.

Be careful the site in Mississauga isn't registered as a business anywhere, I checked. The phone number is a cell #. Although the site looks very professional, I have to wonder if it is bogus.
