hCG Diet Program
JoyRich Healthcare Centers will no longer offer the hCG Diet Program. As time goes by and the medical field does more and more studies, we constantly try to stay ahead of the “curve” and offer our patients the most up to date means of staying healthy and living a life that is Joyful and healthy.
So, what is the answer to finding a Diet Plan that works for you?
At JoyRich Health Care Centers, we take a different approach in helping people finding the reason their body is not metabolizing food at a rate that is safe and effective. We believe knowledge, not fad diets, is a great place to start. Many times, we find, patients have an imbalance in their system that is one of the main reasons for their weight gain.
While we offer a variety of services to offer our clients and would love to answer all of your questions about balancing your system, safely and effectively. We wanted to start with a few of the basics that can help you. Let’s start with a few basic ideas that you may be able to try to help yourself with controlling the way you feel.
Diet and Nutrition seem to be on many peoples mind.
We’ve all seen the advertising and headlines. From “fad diets” to Hollywood’s newest “lose weight fast” diet plans, many people are getting discouraged with the results. As crazy as some diet plans seem, millions of people are still giving them a try, hoping for a miracle. More and more people are finding that even lowering their choleric intake simply doesn’t seem to help them.
FAST, EFFECTIVE, LONG-TERM HEALTH IS EASY… WHEN YOU KNOW HOW!
Smoothies provide a perfect, well-balanced, nutritious meal that’s high in protein, low in fat, low in carbs, and full of vitamins and minerals. Many of the clients I’ve worked with as a nutritionist have told me that using smoothies regularly was one of the biggest reasons they were able to have more strength and energy… and be fit and healthy. As you can see… delivering your body a constant supply of quality protein throughout the day is essential for optimum health.
Problems With Most Proteins On The Market
The biggest PROBLEM with most protein powders is that they’re formulated with inferior, cheaper, and less effective proteins.(i.e. soy or denatured whey). as well as damaging artificial sweeteners. These types of toxins negatively affect the hypothalamus gland, so they don’t give you the benefits you’re looking for. If you’re consuming a cheap, low quality whey protein, you’re cheating your body out of the quality nutrients it needs to operate at its best. You also put undue pressure on your digestive system. As I’m sure you’ve heard… cheaper isn’t always better. After all, you get what you pay for.
Poor Quality Protein Can Cheat You Out Of So Many Benefits!
Even whey protein supplements can vary dramatically in quality and the health benefits they deliver. The way proteins are processed can damage them; and damaged proteins are harder to digest, absorb and use. Most proteins don’t meet organic standards for your health or that of even animals. Most whey protein supplements contain numerous additives, chemicals and artificial sweeteners which are not optimum for a healthy diet.
How Can You Be Sure What You’re Putting Into Your Body?
Sadly, it’s become the norm in our industry for companies to throw together a haphazard blend of ineffective ingredients to trick the customer into thinking the product is working. Many supplement companies know that the average consumer will know next to nothing about ingredient quality. So do you know what these companies do? They give you the cheapest ingredients they can get. More profit, for them, worse health for you! It really makes me furious! You need to adopt the philosophy to feed your body , not your Belly! You can tell I’m pretty particular about what goes into the human . We are in constant war with the food manufacturers and food marketers! WE MUST TAKE MATTERS INTO OUR OWN H
Who Do You Believe? Who Can You Trust?

What is the best alternative to maintain a healthy lifestyle?
Sure diet, nutrition and exercise a HUGE part of your health but you may want to consider your Hormone and Testosterone levels as being a major culprit in your inability to loose weight safely and effectively.
Testosterone and Hormones
Hormone Replenishment for Women
Hormones are complex chemical substances produced and stored by organs and glands. The hormones are then released into the body to initiate or regulate the activity of an organ or group of cells in another part of the body as needed. Hormones can target organs, tissues or cells. Some of these hormones include testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone which are labeled the sex hormones. Thyroid, DHEA, pregnenolone, melatonin, cortisol and insulin are a few of the other hormones that can be evaluated or depleted. Hormones travel through the bloodstream, and receptors on the targeted cells tell the cell to perform a certain action. Once the process is completed, the hormone is broken down and leaves the body. Modern medicine has shown us that men and women with healthy levels of hormones are more energetic, more virile, stronger and more successful than those with imbalanced hormones.
Testosterone Replenishment for Men
Testosterone is a hormone with a powerful effect on a number of body organs, including your vascular system, muscles, brain, and bones. It’s best known as a sex hormone that plays a major role in physical development, determining whether you develop male or female features prenatally and whether you develop male characteristics at puberty. Testosterone also affects sexual functioning. It should be seen as a total body hormone, affecting every cell in the body. The changes seen in aging, such as the loss of lean body mass, the decline in energy, strength, and stamina, unexplained depression, and decrease in sexual sensation and performance, are all directly related to testosterone deficiency. Degenerative diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and hypertension are all directly or indirectly linked to testosterone decline. Men release a large amount of testosterone from their testicles, while women produce a smaller amount in their ovaries. Both sexes produce a small amount in the adrenal glands. The pituitary gland controls testosterone levels in both sexes by releasing a hormone known as luteinizing hormone, or LH.
Estrogens are a group of sex hormones produces in both male and females. Estrogen is a predominately female steroid sex hormone produced mainly by your ovaries. A small portion of estrogen is made by the liver, adrenal glands, kidneys, testicles and your body fat. Your body needs estrogen. It is required in the development of reproductive organs, such as the ovaries and uterus; it is necessary for reproduction. Estrogen regulates literally hundreds of automatic functions in your body: from controlling your body temperature to managing your mood, from increasing your HDL (good cholesterol) to decreasing wrinkles. During perimenopause, your ovaries stop producing eggs and slow the production of female hormones, including estrogen. This fluctuation in hormone levels causes uncomfortable menopausal symptoms.
Progesterone is another hormone produced mainly in the ovaries. Progesterone is responsible for preparing the body for pregnancy each month until the ovaries stop producing eggs. Levels of progesterone can fluctuate throughout life, not just during menopause. Progesterone helps build bone, protects against osteoporosis and heart disease, decreases the growth of breast cancer cells, and promotes an enhanced sense of emotional well being and psychological self-sufficiency. Many peri- or post-menopausal women with clinical signs of hypothyroidism, such as fatigue, lack of energy, intolerance to cold are actually suffering from unrecognized estrogen dominance and will benefit from supplementation with progesterone replenishment.
Balancing your system
When you are young, your body produces the correct levels of hormones to keep you healthy and in balance. As individuals age, an imbalance in any one area of hormones, diet or lifestyle, can cause your metabolism to be thrown out of balance resulting in an assortment of symptoms. Like a well-balanced, well-designed mobile, the weight of each piece affects the balance of other pieces. The goal of hormone replenishment therapy (HRT) is to routinely measure your hormone levels, make adjustments as necessary, and keep your system in balance.
There are two main choices for hormone replenishment therapy: synthetic hormone replenishment and bio-identical hormone replenishment. In the past, synthetic hormone replenishment was the primary treatment for menopausal women; however, bio-identical hormone therapy has come to the forefront due to its decreased risks and increased benefits over synthetic hormone replenishment therapy.
As bio-identical hormones mimic the hormones that our body produces naturally, the side-effects often associated with synthetic hormones are virtually eliminated. The doses of bio-identical hormones are also individualized based on the deficiencies found via blood testing, whereas synthetic hormones tend to be a “one size fits all” dose.
Before starting our hormone replenishment program we will utilize extensive laboratory testing along with a detailed health history to assess what hormones to recommend. Our methods of replenishment are creams, pellets, injections and capsules. After reviewing your labs with the nurse practitioner you will discuss which method is best for you.
Creams: Are compounded specifically for each patient. They are usually applied twice daily and absorbed into the skin. This method of delivery is a slower process and your results may vary due to absorption rate and compliance with applying the creams.
Pellets: Pellets are made up of either estradiol or testosterone. The hormones are pressed or fused into very small solid cylinders. These pellets are larger than a grain of rice and smaller than a ‘Tick Tac’. In the United States, the majority of pellets are made by compounding pharmacists and delivered in sterile glass vials. There is a ‘FDA approved’ 75 mg testosterone pellet. Pellets have been used in both men and women since the late 1930’s. The insertion of pellets is a simple, relatively painless procedure done under local anesthesia. The pellets are usually inserted in the upper buttocks through a small incision, which is then taped. After the insertion of the implants, vigorous physical activity is avoided for 48 hours in women and up to 5 to 7 days in men. Early physical activity is a cause of “extrusion”, which is a pellet working its way out. Complications from the insertion of pellets can include; minor bleeding or bruising, discoloration of the skin, infection, and the possible extrusion of the pellet. Other than slight bruising, or discoloration of the skin, these complications are very rare.
Testosterone stimulates the bone marrow and increases the production of red blood cells. A low testosterone level in older men can be associated with anemia. Testosterone, delivered by implants or other methods, can cause an elevation in the red blood cells. If the hemoglobin and hematocrit (blood count) get too high, a unit of blood may be donated. Testosterone may cause a slight increase in facial hair, deeper voices, and acne in some women.
Injections: Intramuscular testosterone has been used for years due to its effectiveness and low cost. Testosterone suspended in grape seed oil is injected directly into the muscle usually once a week or every two weeks. Your body slowly absorbs the testosterone into the bloodstream. Intramuscular testosterone injections are deep and may produce pain, site reactions, or severe itching.
Capsules: Progesterone Capsules are available in multiple strengths to afford dosage flexibility for optimum management. Progesterone Capsules contain 50 mg, 100 mg or 200 mg micronized progesterone and are usually taken one to two hours before bedtime.
