Real Results Matter

Tired of diet trends or yo-yo weight levels?
Uncertain how to get the results you need?

Down to Earth Wellness Center’s Weight Loss program uses the science behind metabolism to change your body’s metabolic cycle in order to help you see results that last.

This program includes an intensive 40-day HCG program followed by a six-week maintenance phase, all monitored by our team that partners with you every step of the way.

The program is an investment, but it will help you make a real, long-term difference in your health journey.

Our process

We take a medically-supervised, proven approach to weight loss to partner with you on your journey to feeling great!

You will first meet with Sarah Godsave, NP, to go over the program in detail. Sarah will listen to your needs and goals and discuss the program-how it works, why it works, and whether it is right for you. Included in this appointment, if you're ready to take the next step, is lab work for the HCG program to make certain the program is safe for you.
This 40-day phase begins when you have been cleared to start the program. You will come in for your initial weight, measurements, InBody scan, "before" pictures (you won't believe the change you're going to see!), and receive your first week of HCG.

This phase is also the one with the most restrictive calorie consumption. However, because of the way HCG works, most people do not feel hungry at all.

You are never alone in this journey. You will come back weekly to check in with our nurse, get weighed so you can see your progress, and receive an injection of B12 or Lipo C, and get your next week's supply of HCG.
After the HCG cycle, the first maintenance phase begins. This is the critical part of the program because you determine your new "normal" weight for your body. You add calories back while restricting the types of foods to make sure you reset correctly. Your goal in this phase is not to gain or lose weight but to maintain the weight from your last HCG injection.

This phase lasts three weeks, and your office visits are reduced to biweekly. While your office visits are not as frequent during the maintenance phase, you still have access to your medical team for questions or concerns.
Maintenance Phase 2 also lasts three weeks. This is when you add back in carbohydrates and starches to your diet but continue visiting the office to make sure you do not gain orlose weight
You are finished! This is an exciting time when you see the results of your hard work and are empowered to continue on your wellness journey. DTE is still here for you, though. If you have a substantial amount of weight to lose and would like to do the program again, you can. But also there are many other services at DTE that can keep you feeling your best.
The program is also an investment. There will be no hidden fees. Sarah will also go over costs so that you can decide whether it's right for you before you commit.

The results ...

Down to Earth Wellness Center is thorough, engaging, and fact-based in terms of my interests and what I’m wanting to accomplish using science such as blood tests to confirm. It has definitely made a difference for me.
DTE has helped me meet my goals or put me on a pathway to meeting them. I consider it a combination of art and science, and I have a lot of confidence in that. The staff is outstanding. Sincerity and caring goes into everything they do.

Greg B.

I started with blood work and some supplements. I was fatigued, just tired. I eventually began doing hormone treatment and then the weight loss program. I lost 30 pounds right away and then continued and lost 10 more. It has been great because the supplements were specialized for me, which kickstarted me on the journey. The weight loss has been the most significant thing, but I’ve appreciated the hormones as well. They are very beneficial and have made a difference.

Tricia M.

I originally came to Sarah because I’m interested in a more natural approach to health. After a year and a half, it has made a huge difference in how I feel on a day-to-day basis. Sarah started with blood work. Taking that natural approach has maintained my health and feeling good. My energy has stayed up. I’m a teacher, and I have lots of exposure to ick, but I had a great year. It’s been a process, but it is worth it.

What is HCG?

HCG is short for human chorionic gonadotropin.  It is a natural hormone found in the body. 

The FDA states that “HCG is a hormone extracted from the urine of pregnant women.  It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of certain problems of the male reproductive system and in stimulating ovulation in women who have had difficulty becoming pregnant.  No evidence has been presented, however, to substantiate claims for HCG as a weight loss aid.”  This is absolutely true, it is not approved for weight loss because taking HCG on its own will not result in weight loss.  The key to using HCG for weight loss is to take prescription HCG in combination with a strict diet.  You need to do both in order to have successful weight loss. 

How does it work?

In 1954, Dr. Simeons discovered that this hormone could accelerate fat mobilization from certain areas of the body if combined with a very low calorie diet. HCG has the effect of “unlocking” the body’s fat stores so that the metabolism can burn these energy reserves to power daily bodily functions.  The body needs more energy than the calories you are consuming, so it uses the body’s fat stores as energy to compensate. Dr. Simeons says that HCG will release between 1,000-4,000 calories a day from fat stores to be used as energy. This is the reason HCG clients following the restricted diet are not hungry and shed the pounds!

The program is designed to help reshape the body’s fat deposits, particularly targeting the abdomen, buttocks, upper thighs, neck and face. It has also been suggested that HCG plays a role in establishing a new weight “set point” for the body, making one less likely to gain the weight back you’ve worked so hard to lose.

Why is the HCG weight loss program so different from other programs?

No other weight loss program addresses and corrects low metabolism, intense and constant hunger, or emotional eating and food cravings.  The goal of the program is to bring these processes to a normal level. When you finish this program, your hunger will be normalized.  Your body will burn the food you eat so that it does not turn to fat.  Your hunger and appetite mechanisms will be regular without food cravings. Additionally, the HCG protocol may reset your metabolism to a “normal” level, allowing you to actually eat more food without gaining the weight back.

To date over 30,000 people have participated in this protocol, so you are joining an established, safe, and very effective weight loss program.

Those on the HCG diet report it is easy to stay on the diet. They seem to lose inches rapidly from the primary fat stores. 

This weight loss program is not about being hungry the rest of your life.  It is about utilizing the benefit of HCG with a strict diet for a short period of time to give you long lasting results. When you finish the program you will be able to eat anything you like, but you’ll find you’ll crave more healthy options.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

This will vary depending on your gender and individual metabolism. Men generally lose more than women. If you have a higher metabolism, you may lose more quickly than someone who does not. 

On average women lose ½-¾ pound/day and men lose ¾-1 pound/day.

How long is the program?

The Weight Loss Program length will be 40 days during the first phase.  This is the phase when you will be taking prescription HCG every day in combination with a strict diet. The second phase is a total of six weeks comprised of Maintenance Phase 1 and Maintenance Phase 2. During these weeks, we work together slowly adding foods until you are eating a regular, healthy diet.

How much will I eat; will I be hungry?

The diet consists of eating regular, healthy food that you can buy at any grocery store.  You will be eating 2 servings of lean meat, 2 servings of vegetables, 2 servings of fruit and 2 servings of bread during the HCG Phase. 

You are probably thinking there is NO WAY you can make it on 500 calories a day! We  promise you once the HCG has taken effect in your body, you will not be hungry.  Over 30,000 people have followed this protocol, and after the initial start of the program, they are not hungry!  Remember your body is not going to be operating on just the calories you are eating because the HCG will be releasing the fat stored in your body. So if your body needs 1500 calories a day to function, it will take 500 calories from food and the other 1000 calories from your fat stores. Your body is never hungry and your metabolism does not adjust down to match your low caloric intake.

Essentially HCG acts as a natural appetite suppressant. The current research suggests that HCG interacts with the hypothalamus, and more specifically with a hormone called leptin, that tells the body it is full. HCG appears to trick the body into thinking it is full so you don’t feel hungry.

Why is there controversy about HCG?

Any controversy regarding HCG for weight loss has been around practitioners not following the detailed program or substituting homeopathic HCG for prescription strength HCG. 

Why should I choose Down to Earth Wellness Center’s HCG program?

You will have individualized attention from your medical team for approximately three months. You will be seen weekly or biweekly to review your food journal, log your progress, and discuss any questions or concerns. We will walk WITH you through this journey, customizing your plan of care as needed. At Down to Earth Wellness Center, our primary goal is to provide the tools and support you need to meet your goals.  We are genuinely excited to have the opportunity to be a part of your RESET.
