Amazing, Safe and Effective Weight Loss Plan

Dr. Duong works with his patients to reach their weight loss and fitness goals.

Through research of many different approaches to diet, he has found that the HCG Select Plan is the most effective diet for lasting results. He knows this from personal experience.

Dr. Duong lost over 70 pounds that had slowly crept up over the years. Even though he exercised and ate well, his metabolism had slowed down over the years and he couldn't take off 5 pounds to save his life! With this diet plan he lost over 70 pounds! His metabolism is reset so that he isn't constantly worrying about putting on weight and he feels better than ever with more energy than he's had in years.

The HCG Select Diet will:

  • Cleanse your body of toxins that prevent you from processing healthy foods properly.
  • Allow you to eat natural and organic foods, avoiding processed foods which are one of your worst enemies in your battle with weight loss.
  • Balance your hormones so you will feel great inside and out.
  • Allow you to exercise to support your weight loss and well being.

What is HCG and how does it work?

HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is a hormone that is produced in large quantities in pregnancy. (Both men and women have male and female hormones, so this program is just as effective and successful for men!) HCG is responsible for making the abnormal fat reserves of the body available to be burned as fuel. In pregnancy, it is used to protect the nutritional health of the growing baby; however, in conjunction with this program, it is used to rid the body of the abnormal fat deposits. HCG helps to stave off any hunger pangs that a restricted diet may cause. With the introduction of HCG, thousands of extra calories begin to flood the system from the abnormal fat being metabolized. For this reason, HCG diets are easier to stick to than a traditional healthy diet that simply restricts calories. We use a proprietary blend of HCG Select with added herbs and hormones to allow your body to access and metabolize stored fat for energy while breaking the cycle of cravings and hunger. Our homeopathic HCG Select is delivered to your system in drop form

Beneath your tongue and is much gentler and safer to your body than the non-homeopathic injectable version of HCG, without sacrificing weight loss results. When a program is easy to stick to, success is the end result!

Will you get hungry on the HCG low calorie diet?

It is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days. This will pass and by the second week you will find your servings to be satisfying. Because HCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body can access the energy you have stored in fat cells. Overall, most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program.

Will HCG interfere with any medications, birth control pills or supplements you are taking?

Homeopathic HCG formulas do not interact with ANY known medications, including birth control pills or vitamin supplements.

What about pregnancy and taking HCG?

If you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, do not take HCG. If you become pregnant during the HCG diet, stop taking the HCG.

How much weight can you expect to lose on the HCG Select Program?

Most people lose between 10-20 pounds on the 23 day program and 20-35 pounds on the 42 day program. Everyone is different so individual results will vary. It depends on many factors, including how much excess weight you have and how much weight needs to be lost.

I first came to Peninsula Wellness Centre as a chiropractic patient for lower back and neck problems that had given me trouble since I was in medical school.  I have always had an interest in alternative medicine and Dr. Duong came highly recommended from another physician. I began treatments and was quite pleased with the care I was given. We started talking about diet and nutrition and he suggested that I go on a low calorie diet with HCG drops. I was quite amazed at the results, and in just a few weeks I had lost 13 lbs.  Following the diet, I went on a maintenance plan for 3 more weeks and lost another 3 lbs. I was feeling better, and the pains in my knees and hips that had been there for many years were gone. I'm very happy with the high quality care and treatments I received from Peninsula Wellness Centre and would recommend Dr. Duong to anyone who wants to live a healthier life style, look and feel better.

Before coming to Peninsula Wellness Centre I had been to many different chiropractors over the past 20 years.  Various techniques were used on me in attempts to reduce my pain and increase my mobility without much success.  I'm a 42 year old male with chronic ailments that have gotten progressively worse over the years.  I would like to say thank you Dr. Duong for what you have done for my health and the quality of my life.
I'm so excited about the changes you have made with my health in such a short period of time. You have given me simple tips in diet and exercise that have not only made me feel better, but so much easier to move as well.  I am finally back to playing tennis. The equipment you have and the latest techniques and technology you use in your practice are really impressive.  Your adjustments are smooth and always make me feel better.  Thank you for helping me.  I look forward for the new things that I'm sure you are planning to add to Peninsula Wellness Centre.

I was referred to the office by a family member for back and joint pain.  I had a great experience and Dr. Duong and the staff are awesome!  Very professional and knowledgeable.  I got a great gentle chiropractic adjustment after a thorough examination and x-rays.  The cold cryotherapy really helped with my pain and muscle tightness/soreness.  I definitely look forward to coming back for more.  I highly recommend Peninsula Wellness Centre.  Thanks for everything!
