Did You Know?

Cellulite is More Common in Women than in Men



Women's skin collagen is arranged in parallel rows, like pillars.
This pattern lends itself to the compartmentalization of fat,
which makes cellulite visible.
Men's collage however, is arranged in an X-pattern.
This creates only very small fat compartments
and doesn't allow for dimpling of the skin

HCG Orientation

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 30, 2018
Dream Spa Medical - Jenny Bettencourt, Office Manager, HCG Coach

“I have to inject myself with HCG...Yikes!!” That is the general response when people discover they will be injecting themselves. To be honest, that was my response to it as well, LOL! As is the case with most new things, once you break it down and fully understand it, the fear evaporates naturally. Mostly, it’s the unknown that is scary, not the actual thing itself that you are fearing. By the time are you are home with your supplies, you have been cleared for the program by our Nurse Practitioner, you’ve been instructed on the purpose and procedure of the injections, you will have been given a tutorial on the injections and we will have approved you to be able to take your supplies home. You will be fully prepared and completely ready to implement the HCG program once you are home!

When you come in for your orientation I will take your Body Composition Analysis. At this point in the process, I’ve already had our Nurse Practitioner review your blood work and clear you to proceed with the HCG Diet. This analysis will give me comprehensive data regarding the current state of your body. It will measure everything from your weight, to your BMI, to your muscle mass and many more stats that give me a complete picture of your baseline prior to the HCG program. You will then communicate your weight loss goals and any other goals you have to me. As your coach, I like getting a complete picture of what you really want in life. The more I know about you and where you want to go, the better I am equipped to help you get there. Based on your baseline and your ultimate goal, I will recommend a treatment plan for you. I will recommend the number of weeks that you will likely need to give you the best chance of achieving your goal and also the quantity of HCG you will be injecting daily. The major benefit of injecting yourself at home is the convenience. You will need to be injecting yourself daily (usually the same time every morning) so it would be very unreasonable to expect anyone to come into to the office every single morning for an injection for 30-90 days consecutively!

Your orientation will empower you with all the necessary tools to succeed at the HCG Diet. Beyond the injections you will be instructed on your calorie allowance, the “approved” foods and the precise breakdown of the protein/vegetable/fruit ratio. I will even give you parameters for your water intake and how to proceed if you choose to exercise while doing the HCG diet. I leave no stones unturned at your orientation. The most important point that I attempt to communicate is that I want you to feel comfortable and completely in control of the process. This is your body and your life so if I am able to give you the tools you need to gain enough self esteem to feel confident that you are fully in control of your destiny, then I could not ask for a greater reward in coaching you through this process!

Wishing you a week of Empowerment!!

MYTH OR FACT? Certain Foods Can Help Fight Cellulite

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 27, 2018

Fact! Your diet alone can't determine whether you will or will not get cellulite, but eating a well-balanced, plant-heavy diet can reduce inflammation throughout your body and help you maintain a healthy weight. Staying hydrated—both by drinking water and by eating plenty of foods with h igh water content —will also keep your connective tissue strong and supple, and may even help you slim down. Aim to eat more cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, and bell peppers, which (along with many other fruits and veggies) are all more than 90% water.

Will Injections Make Me Look Crazy?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, July 25, 2018


Botox will not make you look crazy. There is a negative stigma associated with Botox in society and it’s a shame that it exists. Misinformation leads people to associate Botox with emotionless, waxy faces... this is very untrue. Most of your friends who get Botox look refreshed and rejuvenated every morning, without even trying.

How does Botox work? An individual does not just get a one-size-fits-all dosage of Botox, they receive a customized amount of units based on their treatment needs. The amount of units that an individual receives depends on age and muscle movement. The older you are, the longer you wait, the deeper the wrinkle; thus, more Botox units. For example, a 25 year old may get 15 units of Botox. A 35 year old may get 30 units of Botox. At 45 years old, someone may get 40 units of Botox ... or 20, depending on whether they have received it before or not. Botox is not about resisting the aging process, it is about aging gracefully. Every age in life should be cherished, and no one should feel insecure about themselves in the process.

Look great for your age because you can! You have one life to live– and you should feel beautiful everyday, at every age. If you are feeling insecure about your wrinkles, Botox is a great solution.

Remember that the longer you wait, the deeper the wrinkle. Schedule your complimentary consultation with our Nurse Practitioner to learn more about this zero-down time, 15 minute, lunch-break treatment!

Heal Your Relationship With Food

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, July 19, 2018
Dream Spa Medical - Jenny Bettencourt, Office Manager, HCG Coach

Your drive to lose weight is, most likely, a product of the result of your relationship with food and the outcome it has produced in your body and in your life. I, personally, analyze my familial relationships, my romantic relationships, my finances and my traumas with regards to almost every other aspect of my life. I am, not only cognizant, but hyper-aware of the cause/effect equation that continuously plays out in my life. I’ve been to therapy and read hundreds of books in an attempt tease out all of the correlations between my childhood, my past experiences and the resulting bad (and also good) decisions I have made as a result of the sum of all those parts. I did recognize recently, though, that I had never truly placed my relationship with food under a microscope. In an effort to better understand why I make the food choices I make and what I’m feeling when I make those choices (good or bad) I have recently started to look at my relationship with food in a more honest way.

The catalyst for this was my foray into the world of HCG coaching. As I spoke with my clients, I began to see a very clear pattern. They did not need a healthy fish recipe from me (although I do have a stellar one that I’ll share with you lol). They needed someone to encourage them to discover the root of their dysfunctional relationship with food and help them heal that relationship. For example, if you are capable of seeing food as a beautiful way to nourish your body and fuel you for the day as opposed to a “drug” that is used to mask hidden trauma that is too painful to face if it bubbles to the surface, you are finally free! Freedom always gives way to happiness.

My greatest joy in this journey has been the moment when one of my questions hits the spot and uncovers the key to that particular person’s attachment to unhealthy habits. We have such complex and storied lives so it is, not only difficult, but incredibly daunting to embark on this endeavor alone. The structure of the HCG Diet, combined with the one-on-one coaching, allows me the framework to help you heal your relationship with food while you simultaneously lose weight. As the weeks pass by with each of my clients, I can see the light building up in their eyes and there is no bigger reward than that! As you begin to shed the pain from your past that is no longer serving any purpose, you will also shed the weight that is holding you down. That extra weight is a physical representation of all of your pain living in your body. You deserve to be happy and the only way to do that is to release all that pain!

Wishing You A Week Of Enjoying Your Food!
