HCG THERAPY TO INCREASE NATURAL TESTOSTERONE PRODUCTION IN MEN
The hormone HCG is prescribed for men in this therapy to increase natural testosterone production during the course of therapy as a result of the stimulation of the testes by the HCG. No testosterone medication is administered in this treatment. The treatment objective is to cause the male testes to naturally produce a higher volume of testosterone by HCG stimulation of his testes with the result that the patient experiences a continuing higher blood level of testosterone while on treatment. Another treatment objective is to avoid the use of any anabolic steroid and its adverse side effects upon the patient.
HCG Therapy normally increases natural testosterone production by the male testes while HCG is administered to the patient during the treatment period However, HCG Therapy can also result in a continuation of increased testosterone production and a resultinghigher level of testosterone in the bloodstream after treatment is completed when the cause of the patient’s low natural LH secretion by the pituitary is not due to the patient’s natural genetics, aging process, injury to or loss of one or both testes; a medical disorder or disease affecting the testes, or castration.
HCG Therapy can result in a continuing higher level of natural testosterone production by the testes after HCG Therapy is completed when the underlying cause of the low LH secretion and resulting low testosterone production
(1) is due to the prior use of one or more anabolic steroids by the patient or
(2) due to the administration of testosterone in a prior hormone replacement therapy without the required concurrent HCG Therapy to prevent the patient’s endocrine system (hypothalamus pituitary-testes axis) from shutting down the natural production of testosterone by the testes and causing testicular atrophy.
Benefits of HCG Therapy to Increase Natural Testosterone Production
Increases physical energy and elimination of chronic fatigue Improves sex drive Improves sexual performance Improves mood Reduces depression Increases lean muscle mass Increases strength and endurance as a result of exercise Reduces body fat due to increased exercise Increases sperm count and therefore male fertility HCG Therapy can also result in a higher level of natural testosterone production after HCG Therapy is completed when the cause of a man’s current low testosterone production is the prior use of anabolic steroids that shut down or reduced the pituitary gland’s production of LH and decreased testosterone production.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
HCG is a natural protein hormone secreted by the human placenta and purified from the urine of pregnant women. HCG hormone is not a natural male hormone but mimics the natural hormone LH (Luteinizing Hormone) almost identically. As a result of HCG stimulating the testes in the same manner as LH, HCG therapy increases testosterone production by the testes or male gonads as a result of HCG’s stimulating effect on the leydig cells of the testes.
The Decline in Gonadal Stimulating Pituitary Hormone LH (Leutenizing hormone)
The natural decline in male testosterone production that occurs with aging is attributed to a decline in the gonadal stimulating pituitary hormone LH (Luteinizing hormone). As a result of the hypothalamus secreting less gonadoropin-releasing hormone (GhRH), which stimulates the pituitary gland to produce LH, the pituitary gland produces declining amounts of LH. This decrease in the pituitary secretion of LH reduces the stimulation of the gonads or male testes and results in declining testosterone and sperm production due to the decreased function of the gonads. The decreased stimulation of the testes by the pituitary’s diminished secretion of LH can also cause testicular atrophy. HCG stimulates the testis in the same manner as naturally produced. HCG Therapy is administered medically to increase male fertility by stimulating the testes to produce more sperm cells and thereby increase sperm count or Spermatogenesis.
The decreased stimulation of the testes by the pituitary’s diminished secretion of LH can also cause testicular atrophy. HCG stimulates the testis in the same manner as naturally produced. HCG Therapy is administered medically to increase male fertility by stimulating the testes to produce more sperm cells and thereby increase sperm count or Spermatogenesis.
How HCG Therapy Increases Plasma Testosterone Level in Hypogonadotropic Men
HCG therapy uses the body’s own biochemical stimulating mechanisms to increase plasma testosterone level during HCG therapy. It is used to stimulate the testes of men who are hypogonadal or lack sufficient testosterone. The male endocrine system is responsible for causing the testes to produce testosterone. The HPTA (hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis) regulates the level of testosterone in the bloodstream. and . The hypothalamus produces gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), which stimulates the pituitary gland to release Leutenizing hormone (LH).
LH released by the pituitary gland then travels from the pituitary via the blood stream to the testes where it triggers the production and release of testosterone. Without the continuing release of LH by the pituitary gland, the testes would shut down their production of testosterone, causing testicular atrophy and stopping natural testosterone produced by the testes.
As men age the volume of hypothalamus produced gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) declines and causes the pituitary gland to release less Luteinizing hormone (LH). The reduction if the volume of LH released by the Pituitary gland decreases the available LH in the blood stream to stimulate the testes to produce testosterone.
In males, HCG mimics LH and increases testosterone production in the testes. As such, HCG is administered to patients to increase endogenous
(natural) testosterone production. The HCG medication administered combines with the patient’s own naturally available LH released into the blood stream by the Pituitary gland and thereby increases the stimulation of the testes to produce more testosterone than that produced by the Pituitary released LH alone. The additional HCGadded to the blood stream combined with the Pituitary gland’s naturally produced LH triggers a greater volume of testosterone production by the testes, since HCG mimics LH and adds to the total stimulation of the testes.
Clinical Pharmacology – HCG:
The action of HCG is virtually identical to that of pituitary LH, although HCG appears to have a small degree ofFSH activity as well. It stimulates production of gonadal steroid hormones by stimulating the interstitial cells (Leydig cells) of the testis to produce androgens.
HCG is not a steroid and is administered to assists the body in the continuing production of its own natural testosterone as a result of LH signals stimulating production of testosterone by the testis.
HCG therapy uses the body’s own biochemical stimulating mechanisms to increase plasma testosterone level during HCG therapy. It is used to stimulate the testes of men who are hypogonadal or lack sufficient testosterone.”

After gaining weight due to rheumatoid arthritis and prescription medication I had lost all hope of losing the weight. Until my daughter and I went to Thrive. Now I am losing the weight and eating a cleaner healthier diet. Now I can see and feel the difference in my body and I couldn’t be happier!
I was so happy with my experience with Thrive! not only did I receive support, but the hgc diet made it easy to accomplish the weight loss without hunger! I was able to successfully lose 50lbs with the hgc diet and nutrition that I had learned!! I am so grateful to Doug and Lanie for showing me that this was possible! I recommend this program to anyone who is struggling with weight loss!! Thank you guys!!!
I went to Thrive after one of my employees successfully lost weight with their program. I was a little skeptical at first. However, the staff answered all of my questions, were very friendly and made me believe that I could accomplish the weight loss. In the first 15 days, I lost 17 pounds! It is true. It was a little more expensive than any other program I tried. However, it was worth it. I’m eating healthier. Because of the weight loss, I have more energy so now I work out. I can’t wait to get to the end of the program. The shakes they have are great and the bars are amazing.
My experience with Thrive Health Solutions has been extremely positive. It started with my first phone call to get some initial information. Doug took my call and spent at least 30 minutes giving me a comprehensive explanation of the program and answering every one of my questions. I needed to lose 15-20 pounds and decided to give it a try. Eight weeks later, I’m over 20 pounds lighter and have never felt better. I have more energy, look and feel so much healthier and happily fit into my favorite jeans again.
The saddlebags, The cellulite. When I started gaining back the weight of a 50lb weight loss on my own (an 8year struggle) I FOUND THRIVE ! Adding the HCG treatment broke through that plateau and I dropped that “pain in the a** fat” 14lbs the 1st 2 weeks. Total loss so far, 25 lbs in 10 months of that hard to loose stuff, I was shocked because my butt actually shrank! You know that annoying area right above your hips. I now see muscle and bone there. I’ve never had such instant gratification on a diet before. This was such an easier process to go through with the fat burning punch of HCG and the loving support that I always wanted.
This does work!!! I have lost over 25 lbs and am extremely happy. While it is a challenge, it is well worth the reward!!
I’m losing weight quickly and it’s mostly belly fat! Which I am absolutely thrilled about! They are very helpful and seem to really care that the program works.
I exercise, eat right and still couldn’t drop those hard to lose pounds. After losing 23 pounds with little hunger and no pain; thank you for giving me my life back!
The first week I dropped 5 pounds. But the second week I dropped 8 pounds. That was more weight that I had dropped in a very long time. I even went on vacation to Las Vegas (visited buffets) and still managed to drop over 12 lbs. Thrive Health Solutions is unique as they do not apply any pressure; there is no weekly weigh ins; it’s all about you and your commitment to yourself to make you a new and better person. I learned to rely on my own discipline and fortitude to press on even though there were plateaus.
I’ve gone from the biggest skeptic to the biggest fan of the Thrive Health Solutions™ program. I’ve achieved my goal of a 60 lb. weight loss and couldn’t be happier. There are no embarrassing weigh-ins, no prepackaged food to purchase and no high pressure sales; this is what attracted me to the program.
