Update January 2015
Nu Image continues to be a quality source of hCG injections online – they have now been featured on my blog since June 2013, over a year and a half. They have spent hundreds of thousands dollars to be able to legally prescribe hCG online and send quality prescription hCG to patients. And now you can check out my personal visit to meet with them and see the inside of one of the hCG pharmacies they use!
To my dear readers,
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I find myself needing to be 100% sure and confident about a decision. Meaning it’s too emotionally and mentally unsettling to not be sure, as well as truly damaging if your doubts turn out to be true. Your source for buying hcg injections or drops is one of those decisions.
I recently “partnered” with NuImage Medical to recommend their diet plan offering either HCG Injections, rx drops, or rx pellets to my viewers- you guys.
This Decision Has Been Several Months in the Making
I made this decision only after careful thought. Probably too careful really. I mean c’mon- it took me like 5 months to make this change. The reason I even began a search for another “company” was because I wanted to find a source that could furnish me a little more proof of its quality.
It’s so important to me to feel confident about what I present here to you guys. This blog is my special space. What I put on here is a representation of who I am on the inside. I just couldn’t live with myself if I were to promote something to you guys that I knew to be unhealthy or that I wouldn’t use myself.
Let me give you all the basic details, then I’ll go into my long, detailed explanation of why to consider them, etc- all that good long-winded stuff that you guys have no doubt come to expect from me!
Note: I get a commission when you purchase through my links, at no additional cost to you. If you find my blog valuable and choose to order through me, thank you so much!

These Are All Just Options to Consider
The reason I have more than one company here on my blog at this time that I can recommend for procuring hCG is because in general I rarely believe that there is only one way to do something- we are each so unique and have different needs and circumstances, and it’s wise to work with this.
I once had a very pushy person who was trying to sell me some “special” cleaning solution at my door- I was in the middle of losing my house to foreclosure and this guy just wouldn’t stop- I ended up buying the cleaner for like $40! And I was so mad at myself and him for being so brazen as to corner me and make me feel like I had to buy his product and not giving me an out. The point is just that every single one of you deserves to be respected and to feel the freedom that it’s your choice for what you do and not feel pressured or cornered into something. That just so goes against my grain.
That’s why I simply try to present the different pros and cons of different choices and possible reasons to consider one option over another and vice versa. With that said, there are some distinct benefits to getting prescribed hormone through NuImage Medical.
The Best Confidence in Buying Comes from Proof
Many, many people have told me that they realized the diet really must work because of the proof they’ve seen in my results (there’s no way I could have faked over 200 youtube videos where my face gradually becomes thinner and thinner- well maybe there is, but it would have taken a very grand scheme of epic proportions that I’m simply not capable of) and bodyfat testing to show proof that the majority of my weightloss was fat and not muscle. (See My Diet Review and My Diet Results and My Timeline of Weight loss for more on that). But contrary to appearances, while the weight loss protocol accomplishes fat loss quickly, it is not easy. Quick and easy are different things. That said, you don’t want to leave your weight loss journey success to chance- when I think of doing that, the thing that comes to my mind is ‘I only have 1 body- just one.’
I now have a source that has given me real and true PROOF of the quality of their hCG. And I get to share that proof with you guys. Below you will see actual reports of third party testing done from NuImage Medical– tested for purity, diseases, and sterility on a frequent basis.
The quality and care they offer make them one of the most responsible companies I’ve come across online yet. I really want the best for you guys and I know that many are of you are looking to me, and trusting me, for help on what is best for you.
Just Because It’s From the U.S. Doesn’t Mean It’s Safe or High Quality
I’ve been fooled by this thinking at times. But I have learned quite a bit about compounding pharmacies lately and just because something comes from a “pharmacy in the U.S.” does not mean you can ask no further questions and just buy. I didn’t know that before. Compounding pharmacies have recently come under much stricter regulations, especially when it comes to sterile compounding (which relates to things like medications you will be injecting into your body), because of some problems in the past with the pharmacies not being responsible about the conditions they made these medications under leading to illness and even death. There are pharmacies out there being fined and shut down because they do not live up to the new standards.
Additionally, I discovered in my research that there have been problems at some compounding pharmacies where the potency of the medication actually in a given pill or what have you was actually far less than it stated on the bottle. Obviously with this hormone it’s important that the potency is correct so that we can find the correct dose since hormone dosage is such an important part of success on the Diet. From what Andreas, the CEO of Nuimage Medical tells me, the main pharmacy they use is a state of the art facility that actually already exceeds the most current regulations for compounding pharmacies.
I haven’t been able to see this with my own two little eyes yes, but it’s something I hope to be able to do in the future- if I do, I will definitely be sharing it with you guys!
You can check out my personal interview with the CEO, Andreas, below, about the Treatment his company provides.
How Much Does it Cost?
Now I already know the biggest concern I’ll get from you all about this- the cost. They are pricier than the other two companies that I have on my blog. Because Nuimage Medical does everything legally, by the book and uses such a high quality pharmacy, it’s natural that the cost has to be higher to accommodate this. I leave it up to you based on what you read here and the comparison of the other companies to decide if the extra expense is worth it for you personally or not.
Additionally, you actually get an exclusive deal when you buy through my blog from Nuimage Medical! It’s a whopping $50 discount that you can’t get elsewhere. When you actually break it down, it works out to just
- $10.70/day for the 23 day program
- $8.06/day for the 43 day program
I recognize that cost IS a factor for many.
But sometimes if we break things down, we realize that by the time we go to McDonalds and Starbucks for lunch, we’ve just paid $10.70 to gain weight.
8-11 bucks a day for just 3-6 weeks of your life is actually pretty small in the grand scheme of things when we’re talking about changing your life and ensuring a good outcome. This is one case where you can’t make a comparison just on price alone.
I recently bought a new camera that’s more “professional”- the difference in quality is SO dramatic that I now regret not buying it years ago- the photos I would have captured of my son would have been so much better and truly valuable to me so as to be worth every penny. That is how I feel about the quality of and your experience should be with this protocol- it’s not worth making sacrifices when it comes to this. You don’t want to be one of the many “help” emails I get almost daily believe me.
With NuImage Medical, the price includes everything that really matters to many- the REAL doctor/patient relationship of a real Clinic, the real prescription, the testing reports to prove the quality (I looked into having my own testing done on the hormone by a 3rd party lab recently, and the first vial was going to cost $3,000 to test it’s purity- yeah- a little much for a technical stay at home mommy for now).
It’s just so important to me to be 100% sure of what I’m presenting to my viewers. This is not just a business for me- I’m connected to those on my site in a very personal way, so I actually care what becomes of each of you (and hopefully someday you’ll have changed your life so drastically I can interview you in one of my Reviews!) I have actually laid awake with anxiety at night and prayed about the best way to handle things and to know what to do when it comes to my viewers, because I care that much. I have that confidence with NuImage Medical based on everything they’ve been willing to share with me so far.
Interview with Andreas, CEO of NuImage Medical
I have to tell you guys how fortunate I am that Andreas took the time to answer these questions- I mean, do you have any idea how busy this guy is? I’m probably one of the most high-maintenance affiliates he’s ever had to deal with, but you know what? The reason I needed so much info is because I needed to feel confident in recommending it to you.
Rayzel: Hi Andreas, thank you so much for letting me interview you today- can you tell me and my viewers a little more about telehealth and how it works?
Andreas: Tele-health or Tele-Medicine has been around for quite a while, especially in Europe. While it is now becoming very popular in the US, Nu Image Medical has been providing tele-health services for over 9 years. Basically, we provide medical services to patients throughout the United States via telephone or video services such as Skype. This enables us to assist individuals who live in rural areas or do not have access to specialists or services like Nu Image Medical provides. Compared to local offices, we offer dramatically lower prices for the same services!
Rayzel: Everyone who comes to my blog is rightfully concerned about knowing that the hormone they buy is the real hormone and that the high quality is consistent. What can you share with us that gives us confidence in your source?
Andreas: Protocol has once again become such a marketing success, that the Internet has flooded itself with scams, fly-by-night companies, and grey market drugs from overseas. Nu Image Medical only utilizes licensed U.S. Pharmacies that are under strict guidelines issued by the FDA, Board of Health and Board of Pharmacology. There is no “high potency” or “super high potency” from real pharmacies. What you are prescribed is what you get. There are no regulations when buying drugs from grey market overseas providers. That is why sometimes its good, and sometimes its bad. There are no guarantees overseas. Don’t even get me started on Homeopathic HCG. They make hundreds of millions of dollars on this product, and consumers are still confused. Simple, IT CONTAINS NO HCG! After all, birth control contains hormones just like HCG. Would you trust your daughter on over the counter homeopathic birth control? NO! A prescription drug in the US. They must now label their bottles “HORMONE FREE” due to the FDA and FTC crackdown on these fraudulent products. You must get it legally prescribed from a doctor, and that is what our company is all about.
Rayzel: What sets you apart from other companies online that offer Plan?
Andreas: EXPERIENCE and RELIABILITY! For over 9 years, Nu Image Medical provides the protocol to now over 25,000 patients. Our doctors and medical staff are well trained. They have many years experience in treating weight loss patients on this program. Many providers today are here one day and gone the next. I have countless patients that try to go elsewhere, only to find out those companies are no longer in business, took their money, and offer no real medical assistance. This weight loss plan is not for everyone. There are serious types of illness’ that one should not do this program. People risk their health and lives when not being treated by a licensed medical facility that specializes in the program.
Rayzel: One of the things I appreciated in speaking with you privately was the interest you take in the quality of your business- both in the actual products and the customer service- can you reiterate that here for my viewers?
Andreas: We get phone calls daily from compounding pharmacies looking to get our business; after all, we are the largest providers! Everyone is willing to offer a cheaper price, but that’s not what is important. I personally travel to and inspect all the pharmacies we work with. I have relationships with and I am in direct contact with all owners and pharmacists of these companies. This is just one way to reassure myself that our patients get the best product and service. But it doesn’t stop there. We offer patient service 7 days a week. Someone from our staff, not a third party company, will contact you directly if you have questions after hours or on the weekends. This way people that are familiar with you and your program will be able to answer any questions you have. Maintaining proper patient care and satisfaction is our priority.
Rayzel: What kind of information do prospective patients need to provide in order to get the treatment?
Andreas: We have a brief medical intake form that needs top be completed; very similar to any doctors office you visit for the first time. It includes patient demographics, HIPAA Privacy Rights, Weight Loss Bill of Rights, etc. It won’t take more than a few minutes to complete them in our secure-online digital portal.
Rayzel: You have the option to purchase Lipo Shots along with the protocol- can you tell us the benefits of using the lipo shots in addition to the hormone?
Andreas: Lipotropic HCG injections (Fat Metabolizing) AKA MIC shots are a very popular weight loss method. Complete information on them can be found on our website. Basically, when opting for the Lipo mixing solution with their Program, they are actually doing two weight loss programs at once, increasing their fat loss dramatically. The added B12 to the mixture assures the patient will get that extra boost of energy while on the restricted calorie diet.
Rayzel: For those who just can’t seem to stomach the idea of the hcg injections, why do you recommend the rx pellets over the drops (this was something I had never heard of btw)?
Andreas: HCG are always recommended as 100% of the drug is directly absorbed into the body. The oral versions remain just as popular as always, but we have to adjust the dosage due to the absorbency ratio of sublingual administration. Drops were always the original form of oral HCG, but dosing was very inaccurate and holding a mouth full of liquid for 5-10 minutes isn’t always pleasant. Our pellets/troche’s are very small “pills” that dissolve almost instantly under your tongue. Basically, in its freeze-dried state that activates upon contact your saliva. Both just as effective, it boils down to preference.
Rayzel: How quickly can a patient typically start the treatment?
Andreas: 24 HOURS! Now, that depends one when your order is placed. Obviously weekend orders will have to wait until Monday, but orders placed during regular business hours and requested to ship overnight can be at the patient’s location within 24 hours!
Rayzel: How long is the shelf life of the hormone in powder form when it comes from the compounding pharmacy?
Andreas: The mandated shelf life or expiry date is 6 months. Once the hormone is mixed (reconstituted), it must be used within 60 days according to the pharmacy.
Rayzel: Thank you so much for answering these questions- I know when we talked originally that we talked about all this and more, but I really wanted to have it in your words to share with those who read my website, because I was so glad to find someone who truly ensures the quality of this product.
Andreas: You’re very welcome Rayzel.
