Researchers once believed that Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) was only produced in the placenta of pregnant women. In fact, home-pregnancy tests are still based on the evidence of HCG in female urine. HCG is a hormone that researchers now know is produced in both males and females. More importantly, HCG can stimulate the production of hormones in the body, including those critical for pain reduction.
Manny Ramirez, former Dodger baseball star, gave rise to public awareness of HCG through his scandalous usage for enhanced athletic performance. Emerging research shows that HCG has the potential to enhance pain treatment, and is not only utilized for a better baseball swing.

We understand that each patient is unique, and his or her subsequent treatment should be, too. US Neuropathy Centers has locations in Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, California, and Utah, serving neuropathy patients across the southwest United States.
Hormonal therapies are gaining a lot of traction in pain treatment. The majority of current medications deals with treating the symptoms, particularly pan, while hormonal therapies work with the body to help with the underlying cause. HCG promotes tissue growth and healing when combined with current pain-relieving drugs. Patients with peripheral neuropathies, especially from diabetes, may find therapeutic value through HCG treatment.
As a “master” hormone, HCG can also promote the production of testosterone, progesterone, estradiol, and thyroid. Over the past couple of years, Dr. Forest Tennant and researchers from Practical Pain Managementhave tested HCG and other hormones on their therapeutic properties. Hormone therapy is quickly emerging as a trusted practice in managing peripheral neuropathy, with researchers and physicians conducting new studies around the world.
