Peptide therapy is a newly emerging science that helps to achieve different types of body transitions, both internal and external. Simply put, peptides are small proteins formed of short chains of amino acids that the body uses as hormones and signaling molecules for biological pathways.
These proteins are in charge of the way your body functions. Your weight loss, your sexual capability, including your digestion activities. They are also somewhat managed by these proteins. Peptide therapy helps the body impersonate the functions of naturally occurring peptides to imitate certain abilities on focused areas.
Although peptide therapy is fairly new, as of 2015, there were over 60 US FDA-approved peptide prescription medications, 140 peptide prescriptions being considered in clinical trials and 500 in pre-clinical development. In recent years, the use of peptides in health care has gained much popularity. Peptide treatment is generally considered risk-free and can be employed to produce very targeted effects. Several peptides have been approved by the FDA permitting them to get utilized for medical trials and use.
Since peptides vary in design and number, effects vary as well. Peptide therapy has been used to treat age-related conditions, osteoporosis, obesity, inflammatory disease and even neuropathy issues. This type of therapy treatment provides a much less invasive alternative to medicines and procedures we have become all too familiar and complacent with.
In addition, since the body is already familiarized to these peptides, they are synthesized, naturally causing less strain. Think about how your body processes naturally occurring peptides, like insulin and endorphins. Peptide therapy is not introducing the body to anything unfamiliar, which is what makes this form of therapy so scientifically reliable.
Peptide therapies can be generated utilizing chemical processes, or produced inside genetically modified cells. Various peptide therapies are offered by injection or cream. Since peptide therapy is based off of how the body naturally operates, there have not been many recognized negative reactions linked with the administration concerning this type of therapy.
Peptide therapy may be your option to a more energetic and healthy living.

Since peptides can treat very specific conditions in the body, there is a very wide range of benefits. Peptides can be used to improve overall wellness in the body as well as limit the effects of aging in the body. Some of the conditions it can improve are: inflammation, weight management, improving your libido, stimulating growth hormones, helping with anxiety and depression, joint and muscle repair, improving mental clarity and focus, insomnia, and even preventing skin cancer by increasing the melanin in your skin.
Patients with Lyme disease, chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease and other chronic degenerative conditions may benefit from utilizing peptides in their treatment plan.
Peptide therapy encompasses different drugs with diverse effects, extending from immune modulation and tissue repair to weight loss and weight training. Ask your physician or speak with a patient representative at (520) 396-4866 to determine if peptide therapy is right for you.
The most common peptide used in peptide therapy is Thymosin alpha-1. Thymosin alpha-1, or TA1 is a peptide that is naturally produced in the thymus gland and lymphoid tissue. It basically helps the body’s ability to protect against foreign invaders that can harm the body. It has been studied extensively for its ability enhance the immune system for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Thymosin alpha-1 (T α 1) is a peptide, or small protein, consisting of 28 amino acids. T α 1 is produced naturally by the thymus gland. The thymus is located behind the sternum and between the lungs, and is where immune cells known as T cells mature and are released, prompted to do so by the T α 1 peptide. T cell production and action within the body is vital to adaptive immunity—the mode by which immune cells are able to recognize and eradicate foreign invaders.
T α 1 has been found to have a profound effect on the immune system, and is used to treat hepatitis B and C, and has been studied extensively for its ability to support an immune system that has been suppressed by chemotherapy in cancer patients.
Specifically, T α 1 has been shown to enhance the function of certain immune cells called T and dendritic cells. This is very important to anyone with a depressed immune system or suffering from an infection, as these white blood cells play pivotal roles in the body’s defense process. T cells, for example, come in two forms: killer and helper T cells.
Killer T cells are responsible for hunting down and destroying our body’s own cells that are cancerous or infected with bacteria or viruses. Helper cells work with the other cells of the immune system to orchestrate and carry out appropriate immune responses.
Dendritic cells are just as valuable to our body’s defense system. These cells gather important information about infection or the presence of cancerous cells, and communicate with the T cells, who then act appropriately to eradicate the unhealthy cells and stop the infection or cancer growth.
T α 1 itself has been shown to exhibit antibacterial and antifungal properties, suppress tumor growth, increase vaccine effectiveness, and protect against oxidative damage.
Studies have shown that individuals fighting infection have a lower amount of circulating T α 1 and suppressed helper T cell numbers compared to healthy individuals. This is problematic, as optimal immune function is vital to recovery from infection. Supplementation with T α 1 has the potential for great therapeutic benefit for patients suffering from infection or autoimmune disease.
In addition to its use in the treatment of Hepatitis, AIDS, and cancer, T α 1 has shown great promise in the treatment of Lyme disease. This is unsurprising when one considers the large role the immune system plays in combating the disease.
T α 1 assists the immune system in the location and eradication of the Lyme bacteria and infected cells, while helping to prevent oxidative damage, thereby decreasing inflammation and enabling better quality of life throughout treatment.
The T α 1 peptide can be administered via subcutaneous injection. T α 1 has been found to be very safe, and there have not been any documented side effects associated with its administration. It is approved in more than 37 countries for the treatment of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and as an adjunct to chemotherapy and various vaccines.
Growth Hormone Secretagogues (GHSs)
This class of peptides includes a number of therapeutics that boost growth hormone (hGH) secretion. Each peptide varies just a little as far as structure and mechanism of action.
For this reason, a certain peptide may be selected depending on the patient’s health status and desired end result. GHSs include: CJC 1295, GHRP 2, GHRP 6, Hexarelin, and Ipamorelin.
Other Peptides Include ..
|Thymosin Beta 4||Cerebrolysin|
|GHRP 2||GHRP 6|
|Bremelanotide PT 141||Follastatin 344 & 315|
|SARMs S4 & S22||MGF|
What starts the healing process is the relationship between doctor and patient. Being connected with a doctor is lost in todays traditional medical model. We cannot tell you how many people in our physical office love the fact that we take the time to listen to their concerns. Being connected with the patient is the most important part of a relationship. The patient having trust and confidence in our ability and then communicating in a way that builds the bond where we can work together to bring back or maintain proper health. We both grow constantly within our philosophy of restoring health, we constantly learn to bring the latest in advanced techniques and testing.
“We look forward to creating a lasting relationship.” – Dr. Wallace & Dr. Sundermeyer
It is about determining what you have control over so you can live your life with the vitality and health you deserve. We live in a culture, where people are conditioned to expect aches and pains in life, so when you feel chronically tired, your stress levels are high, or your knees start to hurt, you think that’s just the way it is going to be.
