HCG Diet Doctor Margate Florida

HCG has become the most recent entry into the weight loss field and as such there are many doctors and clinics prescribing this for patients. You can even go online and order product via the internet. While freedom of information is a good thing, it has lead to an explosion of people who are selling and prescribing HGC, many of whom are not adequately trained.

The original research, as performed by A.T.W. Simeons, M.D. calls for a very specific diet protocol to be followed. With so many clinics and non physician based practitioners using HCG the original work by Dr. Simeons has gotten changed to be something that it isn’t. Many clinics and weight loss establishments out there have modified his protocol to make it less restricted. This will affect patient results on the diet. The diet is by nature a restricted one and if changed the results will suffer. Many clinics and doctors are changing the work to make it easier for patients to adhere to the protocol. They have put in foods that are not supposed to be eaten while following the protocol and have made additions and subtractions in the name of marketing.

A good HCG Diet doctor will follow the protocol faithfully as that is what has been shown to work. The HCG hormone will be sourced from a trusted compounding pharmacy and will be clean of any contaminants. It will be a complete product not requiring anything additional. Follow up visits are recommended to consult with the patient and to allow them time for weigh ins, measurements and conversations concerning their progress on the program. No substitutions or additions to the protocol will be made and patients should be counseled to follow the program exactly. All changes to the program will affect results, so even if your results were good, they might have been better if you had followed the plan as it was researched.

Abraham Freeman, D.C., CCN, DACBN has been a full time practicing chiropractic physician for the past 26 years. He received advanced training in nutrition and in 1996 became a Certified Clinical Nutritionist (CCN) and a Diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Nutrition, (DACBN) where he currently serves on the Board of Examiners. Dr. Freeman meets with each patient on a weekly basis to establish goals and to chart patient’s progress with the diet.

Dr. Freeman was in solo practice for 18 years. In 2003 he and Chiropractor Kirk Whitten, D.C.,CCN, DACBN partnered up and opened one of the first truly integrated, multi-specialty health centers in Broward County. Dr. Freeman served as the practice director from 2003 until 2010.

In 2011 Dr. Freeman and Dr. Whitten joined together with Dr. Landon Agoado and Dr. Robert Herbst, two of the top Acupuncturists in Margate Florida, to open Care Wellness Center, a multi-disciplinary holistic health center. Together this unique team of physicians continues to serve northern Broward County from their new office located in Peppertree Plaza.

During his career as a chiropractic physician in Margate Florida, Dr. Freeman became one of the area’s leading practitioners in migraine headaches and bulging and herniated discs. His nutrition studies led him to specialize in the relationship of nutrition to overall health and its relationship to obesity and structural problems of the spine and discs. His nutrition training also led him to investigate the relationship between diet, allergies, immune system function and stress related illness.

For a long time Dr. Freeman was a strong proponent of a healthy diet as a way to lose weight. However after working with patients with weight issues and seeing how difficult it was for patients to lose weight reliably and to keep it off by using strictly diet alone, Dr. Freeman began to look for more reliable ways in which to assist patients with this difficult problem.

In 2010 he came across the research of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons showing that HCG has a significant effect on abnormal fat loss and on the resetting of the metabolism for maintaining the weight loss after the diet is over.

After studying the research done by Dr. Simeons, Abraham Freeman in conjunction with HCG Diet Doctor Matthew C. Popkin, M.D. began to utilize HCG as a weight loss adjunct. Patients are initially medically screened to insure that there are no contraindications for the HCG diet. Once screened the patient works with one of the physicians and is thoroughly instructed in how to administer the diet. Patients are weighed, measured and given follow up appointments. Counseling is available 24/7 for any questions concerning the diet. On weekly basis patients see a physician where they are weighed in and measurements taken to determine their progress. At this point any problems or patient concerns are addressed and the diet is refined specifically for that patient. All patients are advised for the duration of the program and during the weekly consultations gain a through understanding of how to keep the weight off.

HCG is contraindicated for patients who have any history of clotting concerns such as Deep Vein Thrombosis, are taking any type of anticoagulant medications, have any type of bleeding disorders, or who have had a stroke. Insulin dependent diabetics need close medical supervision by their HCG Diet Doctor while on HCG.
