peptide & hormone therapy

Peptides are being shown to be successful in aiding the regulation of blood and glucose, controlling insulin levels and treating inflammatory diseases, brain diseases, cardiac disease, metabolic syndrome, weight issues, immune deficiencies, cancers, bone and joint problems, sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, and fatigue. Most humans begin to cease making sufficient signaling agents by around age 30, marking the cessation of development, and when fertility begins to decline. Aging should be thought of as a DISEASE of brain-body functioning marked by a loss in cellular efficiency. Peptides can make cells EFFICIENT again to follow through with what they are preprogrammed to do: DIVIDE, GROW, and MATURE. Your immune system is intending to function by preserving homeostasis by vombatting internal or external stressors or toxins.

What are peptides?

Peptides are NATURALLY occurring molecules in the human body, and control cellular functioning! They are groups of amino acids joined via bonds, and can become hormones, signaling agents, receptors, and any other messenger component of a CELL.

According to William A. Seeds, MD, “Peptides offer us a radically new way to define aging.” Aging should be thought of as a DISEASE of brain-body functioning marked by a loss in cellular efficiency. Instead of waiting for chronic illnesses, cognitive decline, and disease to occur as we age, why not promote cell efficiency by allowing for cells to continue to GROW, DIVIDE, and MATURE?

Did you know that by age 30, most humans begin to cease the production of sufficient signaling agents, which marks the cessation of development and decline of fertility? Peptides allow for your own innate immunity to protect against stressors to maintain homeostasis, and for cells to continue to make GOOD decisions.

How do I begin?

Submit a patient inquiry form for review by our APN, and we will contact you to schedule a consultation, which will consist of:

  • Inbody analysis
  • Blood pressure
  • History & Physical
  • Grip strength assessment
  • Discussion of laboratory orders
  • Gut health testing (optional)

History of peptides

Insulin was the first commercially-known peptide, introduced in the 1920s. There are currently over 140 peptides used in therapeutic treatments today, and over 500 peptides are currently involved in preclinical development.

What can I do to make the most out of my peptide treatments?

Gut health, exercise, sleep, and stress all impact the success of peptide therapy. We recommend optimizing these aspects of your life before/during your treatment cycle to ensure the best success.

How can peptides be used to help me?

Peptides can be recreated synthetically to mimic the signaling process that naturally occurs throughout the body, and can be successful to regulate the following conditions:

 

  • Blood & Glucose dysfunction
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Inflammation
  • Brain Diseases
  • Cardiac Disease
  • Metabolic Syndromes
  • Weight Management
  • Immune Dysfunction
  • Cancers
  • Bone & Joint Injuries
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Anxiety / Depression
  • Fatigue
