Every week one or more of my patients tests positive for Helicobacter pylori infection. They usually suffer with distention, foul gas, belching, funky stool, anxiety, thyroid fluctuations, air hunger, low energy and have taken several courses of antibiotics over their lifetime and even for a previous H. pylori infection.

You know the story of Snow White who ate the poisonous apple and went into a deep paralytic sleep. 

Snow white was poisoned; she did not suffer a traumatic spinal cord injury, but maybe the dwarfs could have helped her with HCG.

I have treated firefighters for the past 20 years, blogged about their increased risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease and now about their obesity associated mortality.

In simple terms, firefighters are exposed to numerous combustible chemicals that can be breathed in and absorbed through the skin.They body strives to function so these occupational exposures and noxious chemicals go into the bloodstream and are stored in fat tissue.

Can We Be Healthy and Be Fat?

What's the bottom line on being fat? Can we be healthy and fat? We need fat for brain function, to manufacture our sex hormones and to lose weight.

A large meta-analysis showed an increased risk for death and cardiovascular events in metabolically healthy obese adults compared to normal-weight counterparts.  Is healthy fat a myth?

Some of our HCG patients have motivated us to go beyond our original HCG diet. They successfully took off their intended weight loss from the first cycle and now they want to ramp up to finish the job.
