The fifty-year-old program's difference: Melting stored fat and increasing
the body's metabolism for good
ST. GEORGE, Utah, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- During this time of economic instability, there is a different type of belt tightening going on at a luxury destination spa in Utah's red rock canyon country. Green Valley Spa has become the first destination spa in the U.S. to offer a medically guided weight loss program founded on the Simeons hCG hormone diet. Average weight loss on the 23-day program is a pound a day. The minimum stay for the hCG weight loss program at Green Valley is seven nights with a cost of $995.00 above the basic, all-inclusive spa package. Visit http://www.greenvalleyspa.com for more details on packages and the science behind the weight loss therapy.
Over 30 people have already completed the three-week program, with very promising results. While most spas are reporting revenues down as much as 20% over this economically rocky time, Green Valley is experiencing a 30% increase in bookings over the same dates last year.
Gordon Reynolds, M.D., a former Assistant Clinical Professor at UCLA and Loma Linda University with over 50 years of experience practicing medicine, including five at Green Valley, is very enthusiastic about offering the program.
"We are witnessing a resurgence of one of the only truly safe, successful weight loss programs for both men and women ever supported by five-year follow-up studies," explains Dr. Reynolds, renowned for his work in holistic wellness built on a solidly traditional medical background and for founding the Life Fitness & Longevity Program at La Costa Spa in California in the late 1980s. "Not only did the hCG diet study reveal absolutely no negative side effects, but it also showed that 85% of the participants in the study remained within 10% of their newly achieved weight goal, with none regaining all their weight. No other program can claim this."
The use of hCG in the treatment of obesity was discovered by the late British Physician, Dr. A. T. W. Simeons, and he published his first report on the topic in 1954. He devoted years to researching the causes and treatments of obesity and his work showed that with low doses of hCG and a 500 calorie a day diet, users reported no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability and an average weight loss of one pound a day and no muscle loss. Those interested in the program are invited to download Dr. Simeons' complete study from the spa's Website, at no cost to them.
"We opened this spa over two decades ago in concert with a program about resetting your fat thermostat," explains Green Valley's co-owner, Alan Coombs. "We're thrilled to have come full circle to a proven, safe and permanent solution. And in these turbulent times, it is so gratifying to help people get control of a key part of their lives."
Green Valley has garnered a list of accolades since it was founded 23 years ago by the Coombs family. The July 2008 issue of Health Magazine named the 50-room, family owned destination spa as one of the "Top Ten Healthiest Spas in America." Luxury Spa Finder readers said Green Valley had the "Best Rooms" and the "Best Hiking" program of any U.S. destination spa while a Travel & Leisure Magazine Reader's Poll named the luxury wellness retreat the #3 spa in the world.
