The New HCG Diet

Modified Protocol by Dr Sheri Emma

Dr. Emma's Diet


Only MD Health & Wellness offers to the St. Louis area Dr. Emma’s HCG weight loss treatment program. We use the latest protocols of Dr. Sheri Emma, MD, which is backed by years of research, as presented to the American Society of Bariatric Physicians. Dr. Emma’s Protocol is the highest quality HCG program to date. We no longer utilize the old HCG protocols of Dr. A. T. W. Simeon, developed in the 1950s which followed a typical treatment program including 45 HCG injections. MD Health & Wellness instead follows the latest HCG protocols developed by Dr. Sheri Emma, which, based on your weight loss needs, can run 30, 60 or 90-day plan with increasing dosages to increase fat burning potential.

HCG is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced during pregnancy. Research has found that HCG is effective for promoting natural weight loss. In combination with a nutritionally balanced low calorie diet, these supplements help trigger the brain to burn stored fat versus muscle, melting off the pounds.

How Does It Work?

MD Health & Wellness offers you an effective weight loss treatment which combines small regular doses of FDA approved HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormone with a restrictive caloric diet to release fat while retaining muscle. The more muscle mass you retain, the more your metabolism increases and, so, the more calories you burn.


Combining HCG with portion control “shock therapy” mobilizes your accumulated body fat and helps you lose weight faster. HCG in combination with specific meal plans and medical supervision helps to reduce food cravings, increase fat burning, and keep you feeling energized all day long. The body can burn up to 3500 calories per day from stored body fat. By maintaining a high energy level, HCG helps support this process, turning your body into a fat-burning machine.

HCG is a natural protein hormone created by the body during pregnancy that acts as a precursor in both men and women to produce testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and thyroid hormones. The act of stimulating these hormones in very low levels helps the body sustain lean body mass while dieting. Dr. Emma’s research has found only HCG injections flow directly to the blood stream, versus drops or pills, to protect lean muscle. MD Health & Wellness follows Dr. Emma’s protocols to combine a customized low calorie diet with HCG hormone injections – dosages slightly increase each week in order to increase the fat-burning potential of the HCG.

Dr. Emma speaking with Dr. Oz

HCG is self-administered with tiny needles that are essentially painless.

We will walk you through the process and ensure that you are 100% comfortable with this method upon initiation of the program. Every aspect of your weight loss program is personalized. Your diet plan will be customized based on your current weight, age, sex and weight loss goals, and our team will counsel you on initiation and as you progress towards your goal.

Disclaimer: This has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
