Final Word on HcG Diet Products

We have received numerous queries from new patients during the  consultation about why we do not offer HcG. Our patients have been well aware of Heal n Cure’s position on HcG ever since advertisements promoting its use appeared. Here is our opinion again –

These include HCG weight-loss products.” Refer to this FDA report which calls these products illegal
