HCG Weight Loss

Our hCG weight loss program has helped hundreds lose the weight and keep it off! Our HCG weight loss program is safe, natural, and effective with no known side effects. A number of studies and scientific articles have been published on using this ingredient in weight loss programs over the past 60 years. In conjunction with a specific diet, HCG safely speeds up weight loss.

How it works:

HCG is a natural hormone which stands for human chorionic gonadotrophin. HCG breaks down abnormal body fat, making it available as fuel to your body, and causing you to lose inches. At the same time, it protects your body's good fat and muscle. That means that you can go on a low calorie food plan and lose weight rapidly without the typical problems such as muscle loss.

Additionally, a positive effect is produced on skin tissues, which become more elastic to accompany the loss in body weight, assuring a harmonious corporal contour. Loose, sagging skin is not evidenced, even when weight loss is enormous.

The low calorie diet followed in our HCG diet plan is made up of healthy, nutritious food. So even though you are restricted to consuming only 500 calories those calories are from lean meats, fresh vegetables and fruits that you will shop for at your local market and feed to your family.

No bad moods. No headaches. No weakness:

The use of HCG in the weight loss program not only affects where you lose weight, but also how you feel while doing it. HCG is believed to generate endorphins in the human body, and these endorphins generate feelings of well being, increased energy and increased ability to focus. During treatment with HCG you will be able to continue an active lifestyle, including exercise (although exercising is not a condition for achieving results). You will feel energized and in good moods, and should not experience hunger pangs.


The HCG plan delivers an average weight loss of about 4 pounds a week with no recovery of weight in the period following treatment. This speed allows patients to visualize results almost immediately, acting as a strong motivator to strictly adhere to the treatment

Eliminating the rebound effect:

Fat gains weight faster than muscle. This is a known fact. So when you change the proportion of body fat to muscle in your body during treatment with the hCG you are actually reprogramming your metabolism and resetting the hypothalamus. Once the treatment with low calorie diet ends (a minimum of 21 days depending on the weight loss objective), patients go through a “maintenance” period where the level of calories is restored, but all ingredients that could be stored by the body as fat are restricted. In this way, the body realigns itself to a normal eating routine, but does not increment the fat storage, which greatly diminishes the risk of rebounding back to the original weight.

Monitoring by a Medical Doctor:

Carolina Integrative Medicine’s HCG weight loss plan insures patients continuous monitoring and follow-up by a medical doctor. Ongoing exchange with our medical professionals from the initial consult through the weight loss and maintenance phases helps with motivation and constancy of the course of treatment. This ultimately increases the effectiveness of the program and goes a long way toward guaranteeing that as our weight loss patient you will be happier, healthier and able to maintain your new life style.

Other benefits of the HCG Program:

Because weight loss is concentrated in abnormal fatty deposits, treatment under HCG delivers increased reduction of risk factors associated with obesity and overweight in patients. Patients experience reduction of arterial pressure (blood pressure), lower cholesterol, stabilized blood sugar, and improvements of arthritis, psoriasis and lipodystrophies. Improved sleep and improved mood are also benefits.

HCG has transformed our weight loss practice and created hundreds of satisfied, thinner patients!

“I am amazed at how much better I feel! I have been using the topical bio identical cream for a few years. We added oral progesterone to aid with sleep. I am a new person! I had severe joint pain in both my hips and night sweats. I have to say, after I started on the topical progesterone, the night sweats are much much less noticeable. And...My joint pain is GONE. Completely. Even before my cycle. I have been to traditional doctors, physical therapists and even a chiropractor. Nothing helped. I sleep better, have less mood swings and no more hip pain. I sleep so much better now. Amazing. No sleeping pills needed here. Thank goodness! Thank you ,thank you Dr. Duffy!!!”

“I love your office. I searched high & low for someone that was forward thinking & willing to treat me although others wouldn't because some values were in lab range, but rather you wanted me to be optimal. I recommend your office daily to those that struggle with this issue, specifically those with Hashimotos.”


“I am well on my way to having my life back. Everyone in the office is there to listen and encourage you. I am truly thankful for Dr. Duffy.”


“The whole staff are amazing!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!”

Janet J

“We lost a wonderful doctor when we moved away from Clemson. Dr. Duffy always worked to keep us well - a concept that seems to mystify other doctors. Unfortunately, we had to wait for 3 months to get a new doctor, and he is against all hormone therapy, confessed he is untrained in all supplements, and will be there only to get us well when we have a disease. I guess this is better than nothing, but we continue to look for a Dr. Duffy replacement - one we might never be able to find.”


“A unique practice and welcomed approach to medicine, thank you for leading this corner of Pickens County to rid its citizens of unneeded prescriptions and toxins! Keep up the fight CIM!!!!!!”


“I heard about Dr. Duffy and saliva testing so I made an appointment to see her. She LISTENED to me, actually understood what I was talking about! I did everything she asked me to do and I started to feel better. I'm feeling happy these days. I have energy and no more hot flashes. Dr. Duffy didn't just work with my hormone replacement she helped me with different eating styles until we found one that worked for me. I've lost weight, no longer weigh or measure anything, no more logging or counting calories and I'm maintaining. On my last visit with her I hugged her and said "thanks for saving me." and I meant it. I have my life back thanks to the staff at Carolina Integrative Medicine, and you can too.”

“Would Not Go Anywhere Else. If you’re a woman who just hasn’t found the right doctor here it is. Specializing in women, but she sees men too. Love Love, Very thorough and goes the natural route before Rx.... Aimee Duffy you are a God Send and God has given you an amazing gift!!!”

Victoria S.

Her office staff and nurses are wonderful people as well. Highly recommend carolina integrated medicine”

“You could not ask for a more caring staff than the team at Carolina Integrative Medicine.  Dr. Duffy and her team provide truly personalized care to help you attain optimal health. This office is a gem!

Barbara S

“I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Duffy and the entire staff. They go out of their way to work with insurances, and spend a great deal of time keeping records accurate, detailed, and complete. My care has been excellent. Dr. Duffy has helped with some issues no other doctor in the area could improve. I love the integrative medicine approach and the personal time she gives.  I highly recommend this practice.”

Daniel B

“My wife and I love Carolina Integrative Medicine. Dr. Duffy and the entire staff are on their "A" game when it comes to your health. After many years of looking for a good OB/GYN, my wife discovered Carolina Integrative Medicine several years ago. She absolutely loves the homeopathic approach to health and wellness so this was a natural fit for my her. After numerous bad biometric readings from my Michelin health advocate, I decided to go to CIM and see what they could do for me. Dr. Duffy and the staff gave me lots of good advice and supplements and I have never felt better. We live in Anderson but gladly drive to Clemson to receive the best healthcare around.”

Heather A

“Dr. Duffy is extraordinary. She listens and makes treatment suggestions based on her knowledge and experience in assisting the body to function well on its own. The model of prescribing medications in the usual manner is not practiced with her. She is a doctor in the highest sense of the word. She is a great partner in the journey back to homeostasis. I deeply appreciate the care I have received with she and her team.”

Jenni T

“Dr. Duffy and her staff are amazing.  They truly care about my health.  I would HIGHLY recommend them!!”

This is a long overdue thank you to Dr. Duffy. I actually live in Colorado but started seeing her when I was on a trip to Clemson and wasn't feeling well. Instead of labeling my insomnia, fatigue and anxiety as simply depression, she got to the root of the problem and addressed it using holistic measures. I really like the fact that she exercises an integrative approach to medicine, and not just alternative or conventional medicine. She uses whatever approach is appropriate for your condition. Although I live in Colorado, I still consider her one of my best "go to" doctors; believe it or not, she still treats me from far away! I truly feel better than I have in a long time. Thanks again, Dr. Duffy.”
