Do you feel fatigued?
Are you in chronic pain?
Do you look at yourself in the mirror and wish you could look and feel young again?
Some people are blessed to have strong immune systems that help them fight off diseases and illnesses well into their elder years, however others immune systems deteriorate as they age. Most of the time when people have low energy or have consistent muscle pains, they blame it on their old age, but what people don’t know is that their health issues might be caused by a drop in peptide production within their bodies. It is possible that older people can still look and feel young if they take the right steps to get there. But, what are those steps?
One of the most effective, safe and natural types of therapy that has gained traction within the medical industry is Peptide Therapy. Peptides are meant to repair, regenerate, support, and improve the structure and function of different parts of the mind and body with the use of amino acids to generate energy, turn over cells and create new ones.
Naturally, our bodies already create about 7,000 peptides to perform numerous different functions such as creating insulin, immune system health, improved cognitive performance, growth hormone, weight loss, thyroid hormone and many more. Furthermore, according to an article produced by Health Gains, peptides are used during cancer treatments due to their powerful ability to help individuals heal¹.
According to Dr. Mitchell A Fleisher, “there are over 60 medicinal peptides that are currently in use by clinical medicine”² and it is one of the safest natural therapies for those in search for healing. Therefore, if you’re in need of boosting your energy, immune system or wishing that you could look and feel young again, you may want to consider some peptide therapy options as long as they are properly prescribed and administered by a trained physician or practitioner.
The Types of Peptide Therapies and Their Benefits
There are many different peptides found naturally within our body and can be provided as therapies. Here are a few of them along with their functions:
This peptide is composed of 15 amino acids and is produced within the gastrointestinal tract. It is used to protect the gastrointestinal mucosal lining from inflammation. It also promotes regeneration of injured or inflamed tissues within the bones, cartilage, joints, ligaments, and muscles and also heals injured nerves and brain cells within the body. People who suffer from autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disorders, Lyme disease, chronic allergies, or any type of inflammation will find that BPC-157 could help them regain strength.
Used to boost immunity, this peptide contains 28 amino acids and is produced in the thymus gland. It promotes physiological processes that modulate the responses of the immune system and can also regulate cell motility, neuroplasticity, angiogenesis, and repairs heart cells, blood vessels and injured muscle tissues. For those who suffer with weak immune systems, Thymosin Alpha-1 could assist in fighting off diseases, autoimmune diseases, and treats chronic bacterial infections.
Consisting of 43 amino acids, this protein helps with anti-inflammation within the system and boosts both skin and hair vitamins with collagen. It can also be used to build the immune system along with its sister peptide, Thymosin Alpha-1. This peptide will help strengthen hair and nails along with reducing chronic pain and inflammation within the body.
This peptide is said to be efficient in helping with nerve growth and cognitive enhancement. For those who suffer from Alzheimer’s, traumatic brain injuries, and dementia, this protein is used for natural brain damage healing. It contains amino acids that can help boost memory, mental functions, protect the brain from damage and help repair nerves that may have been damaged.
At this point you might be thinking, “What’s the difference between peptide therapy and clinical medicine?” The answer: A lot. If we were to compare the use of peptides with typical pharmaceutical drugs that are prescribed, there are many significant differences. Sometimes when people use pharmaceutical drugs to treat their illness, the body does not recognize the chemical which causes a reaction or “symptom” to the medication being taken. In contrast, a peptide is something the body already recognizes because it produces it on its own, therefore, infusing more peptides into our system for immunity is safe as long as it’s properly administered.
At LifeWorks Wellness Center, we provide a variety of peptide treatments that can assist our patients with autoimmune diseases, cancer, Lyme, and many other chronic conditions. For more information, please give us a call at 727-466-6789 to schedule an appointment.
