1.) What time a day should I take the HCG drops? Does it matter what time you take the HCG Diet drops throughout the day? As with any remedy or medication, the HCG Diet drop doses should be spread out evenly throughout the day to keep the HCG going through your system for best results on the HCG Diet. For example, 8 am, 2 pm, and 8 pm are good evenly spaced times to take the HCG drops. Accommodate the timing to fit your schedule. Only take the HCG drops during your waking hours. For instance, if you work 3rd shift, you do not want to use the 8 am, 2 pm, and 8 pm scheduling because you would have to wake up from sleep to take your HCG drops. So, your schedule might be 6 pm, 12 am, 6 am. Whatever works for you is fine, just keep your doses spread out about 5-6 hours each.
2.) Where are the DIY HCG Diet drops manufactured? Our HCG is made in a United States lab. The lab is a federally registered pharmaceutical laboratory in full compliance with FDA regulations governing pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities.
3.) How many I.U.s are in your HCG? There are no international unit equivalents in homeopathic preparations. Therefore, there is no equivalence to homeopathic dosing to prescription dosing. However, based on OUR experience with both HCG injections and homeopathic HCG, the following is an approximation of the effectiveness of different dosages between the two methods. These are in no way scientific measurements, but rather how our clients reported feeling and progressing on the different forms of HCG.
Homeopathic HCG Injection HCG
15 drops = .5 cc 3x per day 125 i.u. 1x per day* Most participants feel fine at this level.
17 drops = .6 cc 3x per day 150 i.u. 1x per day Several participants feel better at this level.
19 drops = .7 cc 3x per day 175 i.u. 1x per day A few participants feel better with a little more.
20 drops = .8 cc 3x per day 200 i.u. 1x per day Rarely, a participant feels best at this level.
This approximation is based on several people who have personally done both methods and many other participants who have done one or the other. For example, many people do fine at 125 i.u. (and .5 three times per day), another good chunk of people are highly improved by going to 150 i.u. (or .6 three times per day), a few need to go to 175 i.u. (.7 three times per day) to be comfortable, and only rarely does someone go all the way to 200 i.u. (.8 three times per day) to be comfortable on the protocol. We considered how participants felt along with hunger level, energy level, and weight loss in this translation.
*Dr. Simeons started everyone at 125 i.u. injection one time daily. That is why we recommend starting with the approximate equivalent of 125 i.u., which is .5 cc 3 times a day or .75 cc 2 times a day – whichever you prefer.
4.) Are these DIY HCG Diet Drops ‘real’ HCG? Yes, our drops are started with real, human form prescription, HCG that has been formulated according to homeopathic standard processes. Homeopathy is based on both physical ingredients that you can see and resonance/frequencies that you cannot see. Ingredients are put into a liquid, alcohol medium for preservation. While some homeopathic HCG remedies do not start with the physical proponents, but only include the frequencies of the proponents in a formula, the HCG formula we handle does start with the prescription HCG used for injections.
5.) Is HCG FDA-Approved? The FDA has NOT approved HCG specifically for weight loss. While this may be alarming to some potential participants, we do NOT disagree with the FDA because HCG alone does NOT make you lose weight. It is ONLY when HCG is used correctly with the very specific diet that customers see weight loss. Just to reiterate, following the HCG Diet includes perfect adherence to the very low calorie diet and other restrictions that specifically apply to what goes into your mouth and onto your skin.
6.) What is the difference between the DIY HCG Diet Drops and Mediral HCG Drops? We have had experience and found similar weight loss results with all of these different types of HCG. The main difference is that the DIY HCG drops contain a proprietary blend of HCG cell salts to help with small diet side effects sometimes reported like muscle cramping. The Mediral brand of drops do not.
7.) Do the HCG injections work better than homeopathic HCG? Why do you prefer the homeopathic HCG Diet drops more? First, and most importantly, we have seen the same (if not better) great weight loss results with the homeopathic HCG drops as with the injections or other methods. Many people who have done both forms of HCG and have reported less hunger and more energy while on the HCG Diet drops than while on the injections. Some other reasons that we prefer and, therefore, switched almost exclusively from injections to the homeopathic drops are:
- Can travel anywhere (no refrigeration required)
- No mixing
- Longer shelf life
- Substantial cost savings
- No needles... ouch!
- No additional supplies required, such as alcohol pads, syringes, etc.
8.) Do I have to mix the HCG drops when they arrive? No. When the DIY HCG Diet drops arrive on your doorstep, they are a premixed formula and ready to use! Hooray!
9.) Why do some people need to adjust their dosage of HCG? Some customers have reported feeling some relief from hunger and fatigue when they increase their dose, but keep in mind that a dose increase is not recommended during the first week of the low calorie diet as your body is still adjusting. Also, an unnecessary dose increase will not result in increased weight loss, but could cause stalling or gaining instead, so be aware as you make this decision. There will be more directions on how and when you may want to increase your dosage in the DIY HCG Loser’s Manual you will receive with your order.
10.) I skipped or missed a dose of HCG, what do I do? If you just recently missed a dose of HCG, go ahead and take the dose. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the last dose and DO NOT take twice as much.
11.) Will these HCG drop test positive on a pregnancy test? I tested these HCG drops on a pregnancy test and it came back negative. Does that mean that it will no longer work? No, a negative pregnancy test result with homeopathic HCG does not mean that the HCG is not potent. We tested this ourselves before we started using the homeopathic. When the homeopathic HCG did not turn a pregnancy test positive we asked the same question of both our homeopathic specialist and another doctor. Both confirmed that this was the expected result (negative pregnancy test) because it is a homeopathic formulation, which would require a different testing method. Specifically, homeopathy is based on both physical ingredients that you can see and resonance/frequencies that you cannot see, but these are not cheaply or easily measured. It is for this reason that you want to be sure you are dealing with an experienced, reputable lab. The manufacturer we use for our products is “a federally registered pharmaceutical laboratory in full compliance with FDA regulations governing pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities.”
