Is there any food or drink that can raise hCG levels?

Is there any food or drink that can raise hCG levels?

Not really: If you are referring to the recent "hcg diet", which involves using HCG as well as severe calorie restriction, i would recommend against it. Buying HCG is illegal, (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) and extreme dieting can be very dangerous. It is possible to supplement HCG through consuming your own human placental tissue (placenta pills / placental encapsulation). ...Read more

I drink 4-6 16.9oz bottles of water daily. Today I had 4 over the course of the day and then 2 within an hour. Could this cause water intoxication?

I drink 4-6 16.9oz bottles of water daily. Today I had 4 over the course of the day and then 2 within an hour. Could this cause water intoxication?

Unlikely: Depending on how many ks you weigh, drinking that much water shouldn't cause you any problems. A normal 70kg individual requires about 1600mL of fluid replenishment by natural losses daily. For heat, sweat, or other losses you would increase accordingly. For every 1 degree above 98 degrees Fahrenheit your daily fluid requirement increases by 125mL/day as well. Many gallons will cause trouble. ...Read more
