Peptides, which are chains of amino acids, play a crucial role in regulating various biological functions.
They act as messengers, directing molecules and cells within the body to carry out specific healing tasks necessary for maintaining good health. Picture peptides as the commanding officer of your cells, issuing orders to keep everything running smoothly!
As of now, scientists have identified approximately 7,000 naturally occurring peptides. At Wellness Code, we offer a personalized peptide therapy program that utilizes the latest advancements to promote optimal cellular regrowth and efficiency.
By replenishing the body’s supply of these highly rejuvenating growth factors, peptide therapy can significantly improve overall wellness. Our team of physicians and staff view peptide therapy as an essential part of a comprehensive approach to healthcare that addresses each patient’s unique needs.
The use of peptide therapy involves mimicking the body’s natural peptides to elicit a specific desired response that can enhance various functions throughout the body. Nutrients can be transported to specific areas of the body through carrier peptides, which can promote collagen production by delivering magnesium and copper to the skin. Additionally, certain peptides can act as hormones and regulate hormone levels in the body.
Peptides are typically administered through subcutaneous injection, similar to how insulin is administered to individuals with diabetes. Peptide therapy is highly personalized to address each patient’s unique goals and can effectively target a broad range of health concerns. The frequency and dosage of peptide therapy will depend on the specific peptide being used and must be prescribed by a physician. A reputable medical provider will use an established compounding pharmacy to prepare and supply the peptides for therapy.
Animal or plant protein sources such as eggs, milk, meat, soy, flaxseed, hemp seed, and wheat are commonly used to harvest peptides for therapy.
It’s important to note that peptide therapy is not a universal remedy; rather, it is a supportive treatment that can enhance your body’s innate ability to heal itself. Many patients report feeling a marked improvement in their overall well-being soon after beginning peptide therapy.
However, for some patients, it may take several weeks to observe the desired outcomes. Typically, enhanced sleep quality and increased energy levels should be noticeable within a few weeks.
The full benefits of peptide therapy, such as increased muscle mass and reduced body fat, may be experienced between three to six months after beginning treatment.
Peptide therapy is generally regarded as a safe treatment option, as peptides are naturally present in our bodies and are typically well-tolerated. However, some individuals may experience side effects, such as increased appetite, weight fluctuations, fluid retention, sweating, dry mouth, joint soreness, elevated blood sugar levels, slight numbness in extremities, fatigue, drowsiness, and swelling and soreness at the injection site. Individuals with a history of melanoma may be advised to avoid peptide therapy, and topical creams and ointments containing peptides may cause skin symptoms, such as rashes and itching. Additionally, patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consult with their doctor before beginning peptide therapy.
Selecting the appropriate medical provider is a crucial decision in ensuring the effectiveness and safety of your peptide therapy. At Wellness Code, our team of medical providers and staff are dedicated to providing the highest quality peptide therapy available in the DFW area, and we have established our practice as the leading hormone replacement center in the area. We cordially invite you to schedule a consultation with us to determine how peptide therapy may benefit you.
As we age, the amount and caliber of naturally occurring peptides in our bodies diminish, leading to numerous physical stressors. Peptide therapy can help by stimulating the body’s natural production of growth hormone peptides, crucial for cellular repair. Typically, the production of growth hormone declines after we reach 18-20 years of age. While some may consider taking supplemental HGH, peptide therapy presents a safer alternative without the associated side effects. Moreover, peptide therapy is more affordable than HGH treatment and entails no legal constraints or worries.
Peptide therapy has demonstrated efficacy in a variety of areas such as reducing pain, promoting soft tissue repair, decreasing inflammation, expediting the healing process, boosting immune function, regulating blood pressure, and facilitating lean muscle growth (bodybuilding). Some peptides have been found to assist with weight loss by encouraging the breakdown of visceral fat. Additionally, peptides can aid in the reversal of sexual dysfunction symptoms and enhance brain fog, while reducing anxiety and depression and muscle recovery.
Antimicrobial peptides can also assist the body in combating harmful bacteria. Patients with Lyme Disease, chronic inflammation, and specific autoimmune disorders may benefit from peptide therapy.
Notably, peptide therapy has exhibited the potential to delay or even reverse certain signs of aging.
The cost of peptide therapy varies for each patient based on their individual needs and the number of objectives addressed. Generally, peptide treatment expenses vary based on customized treatment plans per patient. It’s essential to note that insurance providers typically do not cover the cost of peptide therapy.
We believe in partnership and patient education so that you’re able to make informed decisions every step of the way.
