Oral HCG Weight Loss Drops – Are There Any Side Effects?

If you’ve ever tried to do an online search about the side effects of HCG, you may have run across a list that made you a little nervous. Not to worry. Such lists are usually copied from some other website by marketers who can’t be bothered to do some real research. When the HCG diet first started becoming popular about two years ago, there wasn’t much information available about the side effects of HCG, so they copied a list from the only place they could find—a list of side effects from the extremely high-dosage medical uses of HCG. The HCG diet uses much smaller amounts than those other uses, so the side effects are fewer and less severe.

Since HCG diet drops are not a pharmaceutical medication, they will be more friendly to your body. Based on everything we have seen, there are no worrisome side effects confirmed to be associated with homoeopathic HCG itself. The most common side effects experienced by people using HCG drops for weight loss actually stem from the accompanying diet.

The HCG diet will be a big change from what you’re most likely used to consuming First, you’ll be getting just 500 calories each day (in addition to the extra fat your body will be burning, of course). Besides that, you have fewer food choices to make. Lastly, all the food items are healthy foods—no sugar, fat, or oil. Your body will need a little time to adjust to these enormous changes.

Even though the body is getting plenty of energy from the stored fat that’s being burned, the stomach will be getting much less food than its used to. Besides, the food is, for most people, very different from what many people are used to.

This drastic shift in diet can have an effect on you. Side effects may include:

* Some people get a headache during the first week of the 500-calorie diet. Any standard, over-the-counter pain killer can be taken to get rid of headache.

* Mild dizziness is not unusual, but it almost always disappears after the first week.

* When you’re on a low-calorie diet, it’s expected for bowel movements to occur less frequently, sometimes just once every 2 to 4 days. This is not considered constipation. Still, sometimes people do get truly constipated. If this happens to you, you are allowed to take a mild, sugar-free laxative.

* Leg cramps rarely occur due to the lack of potassium in the 500-calorie diet. Potassium supplements should be used to treat this side effect.

* When your body consumes fat, normal toxins are released into your body and eventually eliminated. Due to the unbelievable speed at which your body consumes fat stores on the HCG diet, these toxins can build up and cause a minor rash before being eliminated.

If you ever experience any symptom that seems excessive or a severe headache that takes longer than 10 days, you need to consult with your physician.

Only three side effects can be said to be common (constipation, dizziness, and headache), and two are easily taken care of with common over-the-counter medication (constipation and headache). All three are almost guaranteed to disappear after the first week. As for the two rare side effects, one of them can easily be avoided by taking supplementsPsychology Articles, and the other is simply an indication that the HCG diet is really working well for you!

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an auto-immune disorder which means it is a result of an overactive immune system. Drug companies and traditional Doctors have developed several different drugs that ultimately weaken the immune system so that the immune system has a hard time fighting back in case of an attack to its self. This means contracting other diseases that could kill you!

In severe cases such as mine, the doctor prescribes a drug called Methotrexate Sodium Tablets (Rheumatrex). This is what is prescribed for Cancer Patience’s (chemotherapy). This drug has some potentially severe side effects. My question is the potentially severe side effects worth the risk to a disease that is not curable?

How about we take a look at some less risky alternative solutions…

For those that suffer with arthritis, they may be nutritionally depleted. Dr George Moore, head of six arthritis clinics in Southern California and a recognized arthritis expert, notes that the majority of the arthritis patients seen at his clinics are malnourished, exhibiting deficiencies in zinc, B vitamins, and vitamin C. Dr. Robert Bingham reports in the Journal of the Academy of Rheumatoid Diseases that nutritional supplements correct 80% to 90% of all arthritis cases” Amazing Medicines the Drug Companies Don’t Want You to Discover!

“DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA), a natural amino acid found in many of the foods you eat, is a powerful, non-addictive analgesic. Dr Earl L. Mindell, the author of The Vitamin Bible, notes that DLPA is as or more effective in relieving pain as morphine or other opiates” Amazing Medicines the Drug Companies Don’t Want You to Discover!

When you experience disease or injury your body produces endorphins. There are certain enzymes that destroy the endorphins. The DLPA inhibits the enzymes from destroying the endorphins thus the endorphins continue pain relief activities.

L-arginine stimulates the growth of new bone and tendon cells. It appears to increase human growth hormone (HGH). It stimulates the thymus gland and boosting white blood cell production in the gland.

Also, the following vitamins B, C, and Zinc play an important role in treating Arthritis. And anaemia (iron-poor blood) may be a symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. Glucosamine, Bromelain (found in pineapple), Red cayenne pepper, copper, antioxidants (superoxide dismutase (SOD)), yucca (cactus), Aloe vera, Omega-3 fish oil, and shark cartilage are still good alternatives for the treatment of Arthritis.

There is still another alternative to combat against this non-curative disease called rheumatoid arthritis. This source helps with the stiffness, joint support, and pain of rheumatoid. It is called Cetyl-Myristoleate. It is found in butter and many vegetables. But the best source of this is found in the bone marrow of cows. The best source of this substance contains the following: Magnesium Chelate, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Cetyl Myristoleate, Cetyl Myristate, Cetyl Palmitoleate, Cetyl Laurate, Cetyl Palmitate, Cetyl Oleate, and Type II Collagen.

For the best results, you should take the following nutritional supplements along with Cetyl-Myristoleate: Omega-3 Fatty Acids, MSM, Vitamin B-1, Vitamin B-3, Vitamin B-5, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin C, Vitamin EScience Articles, and Selenium.

As mentioned in the title of this article there is No Cure for rheumatoid arthritis. But we, in my opinion, can slow it down without the harmful side effects of traditional medicine. Why would any sane person want to weaken their immune system so as to be open to a whole host of other illnesses? There are other alternatives! I hope that I have spurned you on to research all your possibilities?
