Ketamine to Treat Depression

Ketamine has been shown in multiple studies over the last decade to rapidly relieve symptoms of treatment-resistant depression, usually within hours.

HCG Diet Warning

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) treatment is useless for weight loss.  Furthermore, HCG products marketed for weight loss have been banned by the FDA due to being unsafe and fraudulent.
