TLC-INTERNATIONAL - RESEARCH BACKGROUND
TLC-International strives to apply the best scientific knowledge to maintain and continually enhance its TLC-Program Quality and Efficacy.
TLC-International’s specialised TLC-Admin and TLC-Diagnostic Centers, with processes based in over 10 countries, continually conduct and facilitate this. The question of Human Health and Wellbeing has occupied leading minds from the early Greek Philosophers to present day Health and Wellbeing: Scientists and Practitioners.
Our approach is to consider and apply all the very best...wherever it comes from!
In doing so...TLC-International is not (and never claims to be) an academic research institution. It remains a commercial enterprise that effectively applies leading research by using unique, sophisticated processes and appointed research and development task teams to produce effective Wellbeing products and services.
In this context: TLC-International launched its own 10-year empirical study of over 10,000 actual TLC-Program Client diagnostic/pathology and anecdotal results. The results confirm and underwrite what many thousands of Clients experience each month:
Indicating astounding efficacy levels of well-over 80% for a range of 350 conditions.
This publication is undergoing further specialist peer-review and
is soon-to-be released in a printed publication.
Further research reference sources: Dating from 1987 to the present,
some of our over 55 000 references and data on TLC-International's research databases include selected publications and research papers of over 200 acknowledged, leading specialists such as:
Dr. D'Adamo (USA), Dr. Klatz (USA), Dr. Chopra (USA), Dr. Briffa (UK), Dr. Weil (USA), Dr. Heller (Europe), Dr. Rudman (USA), Dr. Atkins (USA), Dr. Sharma (UK), Holford (UK), Dr. Mauderboucus (WHO-Mar), Dr. Omara (Japan) and, Dr. Wastle (USA).
Note: TLC-International does not exclusively subscribe to or, follow any of these specialists "doctrines"…it has its own, unique approach and processes for creating greater Wellbeing.
The principles of TLC-Programs are well-substantiated in various published papers in international journals (that TLC-International maintains in exclusive and extensive databases). These include:
• American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,
• American Journal of Medical Genetics,
• American Journal of Physiology,
• Annals of the New York Academy of Science,
• British Journal of Clinical Psychology,
• Endocrinology (USA),
• HPCSA (RSA),
• International Journal of Obesity,
• Journal of Clinical Endocrinological Metabolism,
• Journal of Clinical Investigation,
• Psychology Today (USA),
• The AMA (American Medical Association) Journal,
• The American Journal of Forensic Medicine,

TLC-Program Results over the past 20+ years speak for themselves!
THE ROLE of HORMONES
Human Growth Hormone (HGH):
Work on the Human Growth Hormone (hGH) started in the early 1970's with the advent of the medical specialist field of Endocrinology and has remained at the medical fore-front over the past nearly 40 years as one of the most important hormones involved in rejuvenation and Wellbeing.
Briefly, HGH is responsible for the: Regeneration and preservation of body, organ and muscle tissue, and breaking down of fat in the body.
Over 20 Hormones and over 3500 factors are considered in the development of each unique TLC-Program.
Besides Human Growth Hormone the other main Hormonal "Players" include:
Which regulates blood sugar levels, playing a major role in appetite regulation and weight-loss while also directly impacting the following hormone levels:
• Which controls the craving for food (especially starches!) and, when stimulated to higher levels creates a remarkable sense of wellbeing and...
• Ghrelin and Leptin
• Ghrelin can stimulate hunger while Leptin inhibits food intake/hunger and also stimulates weight loss.
• The Ghrelin Gene (SNP247) contributes to height, body mass and Glucose tolerance in Obese (or potentially obese) people due to lower Insulin secretion.
