Recently I wrote about my perspective on homeopathic HCG. The bottom line message is that, at least scientifically speaking, the jury is still out. This does not mean to negate the many testimonials by people who have used it, or the many companies who sell it. My point of view is simply a cautious one because homeopathic HCG generally does not fit in with homeopathic medicine.
I do, however, object to the myriad websites that sell homeopathic HCG and yet make it very difficult to discover that their products are homeopathic at all. Labeling a homeopathic product as ‘HCG’ is not informative. It is even misleading. This is typical of homeopathic remedies, not just HCG, from many companies (not reputable ones).
This is why I want to caution you to get all the details that you can about any product.
Beware Marketing Hype
Hyperbole is meant to hook you into a belief about a product so you don’t have to think too hard for yourself. Sometimes this takes the form of making competitors look bad, really bad. This approach may be done so professionally that you might be unaware of how persuasive the hype can be. Ad firms get millions of dollars to mess with your minds. You and I are almost defenseless against it.
However, sometimes the hype is so silly and so bad that it is worth pointing out. The reason that I am revisiting the topic of homeopathic HCG is that I encountered a website that is so anti-homeopathic HCG, and so poorly done, that it has to be held up as a shining example of being unbelievable … meaning, truly not to be believed. So, regardless of your point of view of homeopathic HCG, take a look at how a really bad slam job looks. It is at this page, with the line at the top that says:
The main purpose of this website has nothing to do with HCG, so this page seems to be a weird add-on, probably to lure visitors to buy something. Duh!
I hope that my point does not insult your intelligence. This page is so overdone against homeopathic HCG, and so bad in many ways (wild claims, scads of misspelled words … including ‘chrionic’ [instead of chorionic] … right at the top) that it has no credibility.
Homeopathic HCG is not evil. It is not a scam, at least in concept. If you want to use it, two of its main attractions are that it is inexpensive and it is widely available without a prescription.
I still don’t recommend it, because it does not satisfy my standards in scientific research at this time. As I have pointed out many times, homeopathy is a well-established and powerful treatment modality. Homeopathic HCG, however, does not fit into the classic laws of this modality.
