Weight Management Therapy Program & hCG Diet Alternative
In addition to motivation, diet and exercise, a physician may prescribe compounded medications including HCG, B12 and other fat-burning shots to help individuals reach their weight-loss goals.
At Olympia, we offer several injectable options for treatment, including our vitamin injectables and our popular Lipo-Mino Mix blend, which can help reduce appetite, build muscle and promote a healthy immune system.

Our HCG Diet Alternative Medication
Although the hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) diet has been very popular among physicians trying to help patients lose weight over the years, an update in 2020 by the FDA reclassified hCG as a biologic compound, which has been removed from the list of drugs that can be produced from 503B facilities like Olympia.
Because we’re directly regulated by the FDA, we always abide by these changes and have created a Weight Management Kit that is a great hCG diet alternative solution.
If you’ve been affected by the new regulations with hCG, learn more about our Weight Management Therapy Program as an effective hCG diet alternative option.
