Achieve Your Wellness Goals With Peptides

At Therapeutic Health, we offer uniquely crafted treatments to address ailments in individualized plans of care. As signaling molecules for our bodies, peptides offer a distinct advantage in supporting our comprehensive patient plans that can be used to target a myriad of various conditions. After listening to your specific needs, we will be able to determine the right peptide therapy for your personal health goals.

What Are Peptides?

Peptides are signaling molecules. 7000 peptides are naturally occurring. Molecule formed by combining two or more amino acids (the body has 20 amino acids). Typically less than 50 amino acids considered a peptide and more than 100 considered a protein in between called polypeptide. Peptides are part of receptors. These small signaling molecules do many different things in our body. Insulin, for example, is a peptide that is used to help the body utilize glucose (aka sugar). At Therapeutic Health, we utilize many different peptide therapies to help patients achieve better results from conditions they may be suffering from.

Semaglutide

With our functional medicine approach, weight is lost as a result of optimal overall health. Semaglutide has many beneficial effects on the body including reducing inflammation, stabilizing blood sugar, and inducing fat loss.

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist which helps regulate blood sugar and increase feelings of fullness. It’s a peptide that reduces inflammation in the liver, blood vessels and decreases risk of stroke, heart attack, and Alzheimer’s disease. It aids in weight loss by decreasing appetite and cravings, as well as reducing fat stored in the body. It is safe for all patients except those with history of pancreatitis or thyroid cancer.

We recommend using Semaglutide as part of a balanced lifestyle including stress management and reasonable portions. You may feel some fatigue as you increase your dosage of Semaglutide, and this is very normal. Light exercise during periods of more intense weight loss is okay and short walks are still very beneficial.

BPC-157

BPC-157 has become known as the staple in body protection.

Short for Body Protection Compound-157, BPC is a special compound that works to heal tissue by stimulating the production of growth factors that play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration. These growth factors can promote the healing of injured tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and even organs.

BPC-157 helps to promote the production of collagen, a structural protein that’s essential for the health and integrity of various tissues, can repair damaged intestinal lining and promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria, and, due to its anti-inflammatory and tissue repair properties, is often associated with pain relief. It may help reduce pain and discomfort in individuals with various injuries and chronic conditions. Some studies also suggest that BPC-157 may have neuroprotective properties. It could potentially protect nerve cells from damage and support neurological healing in certain conditions.

We offer BPC-157 in capsule form and injectables.

CJC and Ipamorelin
As we age, hormones in our body start to decline. We have decrease in growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1). IGF1 is what we see raised through taking growth hormone. We also see an increase cellular cortisol (stress hormone). There is a marked decrease in muscle mass and strength. Our insulin sensitivity goes down leading us towards more fat gain. Our cognitive function and memory start to decline. The immune system does not function nearly as well as we age too. Our mitochondria (the powerhouse of each cell in our body) no longer are able to multiply as well as when we were younger.

Growth hormone controls many things in the body such body composition (body fat and lean muscle mass), sleep cycle, bone density, muscle mass, immune function, sexual function, mood, memory, cognition, cardiovascular capacity, endurance, energy, exercise capacity, and glucose utilization. Growth hormone increases levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 has had multiple studies performed finding things such as high levels of IGF-1 in older men show increased cancer mortality (2). Other studies have found that increased levels of IGF1 lead to decrease risk of mortality (3). When growth hormone is given, it needs to be cycled off and on. The growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) CJC increases growth hormone and IGF-1 levels through a feedback loop in the body (4). Due to being used in a feedback loop, it does not shut down the body’s natural production of growth hormone produced in the pituitary, which happens when just giving growth hormone. The growth hormone-releasing peptide (GRHP) Ipamorelin acts in a similar way on the pituitary as CJC. It increases growth hormone and IGF-1 levels through a feedback loop to the pituitary. Ipamorelin also reduces cell death, decrease reactive oxygen species (ROS), bring down inflammation, and increases how well antioxidants are used in the body. The protective effects of Ipamorelin have been seen in the heart, brain, nerves, stomach, intestines and liver. A reduction in scar tissue post injury has also been seen. Increase ability to create muscle and an inhibition of breakdown of muscle has been found with use of Ipamorelin (1).

Dosing:
Utilizing CJC/Ipamorelin on a daily basis 5 days a week can pulse the growth hormone that is being released from the pituitary. Typically this combination takes roughly 3 months to see peak clinical effectiveness.

What should you expect from CJC/Ipamorelin:
The first thing most patients start to notice is an increase in sleep quality. Sleep is one of the most important things in our lives. Dreams can become more vivid. Waking up feeling refreshed also is seen typically in the first two weeks. In the second week, repair in the body starts to become more noticeable. Recovery from exercise is seen during this time. Weeks 3 and 4 have an increase in cognition and feeling like memory becomes easier. Weeks 6 and beyond see a change in body composition with increased lean muscle mass and decreased fat. As lean muscle mass increases, an increase in metabolism occurs. This increased metabolism means more calories being burned off without having to make any dietary changes.

Helps with:
– Body composition – Body fat decrease, lean muscle mass increase
– Sleep cycle – slow wave sleep
– Bone density
– Muscle mass
– Immune function
– Sexual function
– Mood

Tesamorelin is a growth hormone releasing hormone that has been used for body composition. Currently it is the most effective growth hormone releasing peptide on the market. It has several potential benefits over the use of any other growth hormone releasing hormone currently available. It is much better for body composition. Tesamorelin also is much better in people over the age of 60. Tesamorelin has been shown to be useful in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It can help improve growth hormone levels. It takes roughly 3 weeks to see peak clinical benefit. It can reach maximum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels in 2 weeks.
Ipamorelin is a growth hormone releasing peptide. The combination of a growth hormone releasing peptide and growth hormone releasing hormone creates a synergistic effect that is about 7X more effective than using either alone.

Dosing:
Utilizing Tesamorelin/Ipamorelin on a daily basis 6 days a week can pulse the growth hormone that is being released from the pituitary.

What should you expect from Tesamorelin/Ipamorelin:
The first thing that is typically seen is an increase in deep sleep. People report feeling more rested. The next thing that is noticed is an increase in cognition. Memory improves as well as overall mood. After about 4-6 weeks, body composition changes are seen. A decrease in fat and an increase in lean muscle are seen quicker on this peptide combination than with the other growth hormone releasing hormones and growth hormone releasing peptides.

Epitalon
Epitalon is a very special peptide. It can elongate teleromeres. The question is, what is a telomere? A telomere is part of a chromosome, which is where your DNA is stored. As we age, these telomeres start to shorten. The shortening of telomeres leads to senescence, apoptosis and cancer type transformation in cells. This affects the health and lifespan of an individual. Different things can lead to lengthening or shortening telomere length as we age. The ability to reduce the rate of telomere shortening can lead to a delayed onset of age-associated disease and increased lifespan. Epitalon works on telomerase enzymatic activity. Telomerase is the enzyme that elongates the telomere thus increasing the length of the telomere.

Helps:

Thymosin Alpha 1
Thymosin alpha 1 (TA1) is an immune modulating peptide, or small protein molecule. It is naturally occurring in the thymus gland. The thymus gland is where the T cell (part of the immune response) matures. The T cell is released when TA1 levels are increased. As we age, the levels of TA1 decrease. Some of the symptoms of deficiency are: fatigue, lack of motivation, physical exhaustion, chronic infections, slow wound healing, joint pain/injury. Helping the immune system could be considered helping longevity. This peptide really helps with overall immune functioining and could be useful for everyone.

Thymosin Alpha 1 helps the immune system:
