Do you have a health problem that isn’t going away? Do you find that your hair and nails are not growing as quickly as they used to? Are you noticing an increase in body fat, cellulite, or wrinkles on your skin? These are very different health concerns, but there is a treatment that can help these and many other issues by improving your underlying overall health. The treatment is called peptide therapy––available from Optimal Health and Wellness in Pasadena, CA––and it can provide a serious boost to your immune system, your healing processes, and your body’s natural growth mechanisms.
Why There Is a Need for Peptide Therapy?
For many people, traditional treatments don’t always do everything possible to help the body heal. While disease or injury may be cured, the problem is often that the cells in the body don’t do enough to restore the body to its former state. Without help, patients may continue to struggle with restless sleep, hormone fluctuations, low energy, low stamina, low sex drive, and even a weaker immune system. What is needed is a treatment that works directly with the cells of the body, telling them what to do and how to recover as quickly as humanly possible.
What Is Peptide Therapy?
This form of treatment helps supply the body with the essential materials it needs to heal itself. The process works by introducing peptides to a person who needs them.
Peptides are short chains of amino acids. The body uses peptides to deliver instructions to specific types of cells. When we administer peptides to a patient, we can increase the rate at which certain actions are taken at a cellular level, which can lead to increased speed in healing, rejuvenation, and even growth.
By enabling medical professionals to send specific instructions, we can not only boost recovery from disease, but we can also help increase performance levels in healthy patients, as well.
How Are the Peptides Administered?
The approach to therapy will depend on the goals and circumstances of each patient. In most instances, peptides are injected on a daily basis; however, this is not always the case. Peptides may also be administered with the use of oral tablets, dermal creams, and even nasal sprays. It is widely believed that a direct delivery into the bloodstream is the most effective approach, but this can sometimes be tailored to different patients.
What Happens Once the Peptides Are Given to a Patient?
In many cases, the peptides will be taken by a patient before bedtime. This allows the body to absorb them during sleep, which can increase their effectiveness. The peptides then send signals to your cells to accomplish certain tasks, which might result in increased metabolism or growth hormone production. The peptides will simply increase the rate at which the body is already working to heal or grow.
What Specific Peptides Are Used?
Each patient’s symptoms will have their own underlying causes. These causes will need different types of peptides to help address them. At Optimal Health and Wellness, we have a very wide range of peptides that we can deliver to patients, giving us the ability to treat a wide range of ailments and health concerns.
This peptide is also known as TA1. It primarily works to boost the immune system, which is of particular interest to modern patients. The immune system is a vital tool in helping us resist and recover from infectious diseases and viruses.
The peptide TA1 is made up of 28 amino acids and is produced in the thymus gland, which also creates T-cells. T-cells are vital components of the body’s immune system, as they identify, isolate, and combat foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria. TA1 can help reduce the risk of contracting these infections, as well as speeding the recovery of those already infected.
Thymosin Beta 4
In the same way that Thymosin Alpha-1 is known as TA1, Thymosin Beta-4 is known as TB4. This peptide is made up of 43 different amino acids and is frequently located wherever there is a wound in the body or in blood clots. TB4 helps instruct cells to create replacement blood vessels that may have been damaged or destroyed after a wound. It can also help reduce the effects of inflammation that may come as the result of an infectious disease.
Because repairing blood vessels has such wide-ranging implications, the benefits of TB4 are numerous. TB4 can be used in improving the cellular healing process, assisting cell migration to the location of an injury, healing scar tissue, growing new muscles or tendons, and even extending life expectancy.
Growth Hormone Secretagogues
Commonly abbreviated as GHSs, this family of molecules is used to stimulate growth by interacting with the hypothalamus and the pituitary. Many people probably think of steroids and muscle growth when it comes to the phrase “growth hormone,” but GHSs can be used for many different medical purposes.
“GHRP” stands for “Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide,” so it’s probably not difficult to figure out what these peptides are used for. GHRP 2 and GHRP 6 are both used to stimulate the production of growth hormone in the body. GHRP 2 does this by mimicking ghrelin, which is a natural substance in the body that can increase both hunger and growth.
GHRP 6 is more potent and has a greater effect on both increasing hunger and on building mass. Patients who are looking to stay lean and make smaller gains might opt for the milder GHRP 2, while those who want to add as much as possible may benefit more from GHRP 6.
These peptides can be used to increase hormone production, boost metabolism, and increase muscle mass among those who are building their bodies.
This peptide comes from GHRP 6 and helps to build healthy, sturdy bone mass. It can also be used to lessen overall body fat, as it does not increase the appetite.
Although it is not the same as other growth hormones, CJC 1295 has a similar effect. The compound has a significant impact on insulin-like growth factor and on plasma growth hormone. It is used by some bodybuilders, although some countries (like the Netherlands) have classified it as a banned substance in this arena.
Other benefits can include improved sleep and the addition of lean muscle mass.
Like CJC 1295, Ipamorelin has a marked effect on the production of plasma growth hormone, which can stimulate weight and muscle gain.
This peptide chain has many therapeutic uses. It is a peptide that is isolated from gastric juices. Because it comes from amino acids located in the stomach, it is used to treat symptoms such as stomach ulcers and fistulas. However, its abilities don’t just end there. BPC 157 can also be used to help heal injuries such as ruptured tendons or torn ligaments, although professional athletes should check to make sure that it is not considered a banned substance in their sport.
Mechano Growth Factors
Also known as MGFs, these peptides can help patients who may be experiencing significant muscle loss. The reasons for this may be a serious illness such as cancer or simply due to the natural aging process, but MGFs stimulate the growth of muscle tissue in either case.
This peptide has been found to provide a number of anti-aging benefits, including improved cardiovascular health. Studies have also suggested that it significantly lowers the rate of cardiovascular mortality and serious respiratory diseases.
This peptide is used to treat skin, weight loss, and even enhance libido.
Bremelanotide PT 141
This peptide is synthesized from Melanotan II. It works by activating melanocortin receptors. It has instantaneous effects in the generation of libido and is useful in treating ED.
Follastatin 344 and Follastatin 315
These peptides can also help counteract serious muscle loss.
SARM S4 and SARM S22
These peptides can provide many of the benefits of steroids (such as fat loss and muscle gain) without the same drawbacks (such as liver damage).
If you have been experiencing a lack of mental clarity, this peptide may be the answer. Cerebrolysin is an exceptionally small peptide that is thought to boost a patient’s cognitive performance, causing an increase in creativity and concentration. It may also lessen the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, strokes, injuries, and other diseases that affect the brain.
Is Peptide Therapy a Natural Treatment?
Peptides are natural organic compounds. They aren’t just found in all humans but in all living organisms of every kind. These amino acids can improve the way your body conducts its normal processes while remaining a perfectly natural treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Nearly any adult who wishes to be treated with peptides is a candidate. The treatment has grown in popularity in recent years and is generally considered safe. Because you already have peptides in your body, there is little to no risk of an allergic or adverse reaction. In addition, our experienced staff will oversee all treatment plans in a manner that keeps our patients safe.
If you have any of the following symptoms, you may be a candidate:
- Restless nights or poor sleep quality
- Hormonal imbalance or hormonal deficiency
- Reduced sex drive
- Excess cellulite
- Excess body fat
- High skin elasticity (loose or sagging skin)
- Joint pain
- Muscular pain
- Thinning or patchy hair growth
- Slow or weak nail growth
- Low bone density
- Cognitive difficulties, trouble focusing
- Low stamina
- Slow to heal from injuries
- Slow to recover from workouts
- Slow to add muscle growth
- Low muscle strength and endurance
- Weak immune system
Of course, this is a wide range of symptoms. Because of this, the specific peptides that are used in treatment will not be the same in every case. However, any of these conditions is an issue that can be addressed with peptide treatment.
