The coming revolution in medicine
Peptides therapy is a growing field in medicine, ranging from skin care, to preventing heart disease and stroke, treating immune system problems, chronic infections like Lyme disease, and so many other conditions. Peptides are chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of the body’s proteins. After the administered of a peptide treatment to a patient, rather than a hormone or a drug, the body’s own natural abilities are enhanced- whether by producing its’ own hormones or other healing proteins. Peptides have been known for a long time and have been studied extensively. There are currently over 2.5 million articles about peptides on Pub Med. Some of the most important peptide treatments are currently approved medications by the FDA’s of many European countries, Australia and other places around the world. The human body possesses over 250,000 peptides and we are only beginning to classify and understand them, and harness their power in the practice of medicine.
PEPTIDE TREATMENTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR:
COSMETICS & WEIGHT LOSS
Skin care: Peptide containing creams can reduce wrinkles and maintain healthy skin, possibly more resistant to sun damage and its cancer causing effect.
Peptides used: GHK-Cu
Thinning hair: Peptides can be applied locally to the scalp or added to a hair restoration procedure such as PRP or a stem cell treatment to further promote hair restoration.
Peptides used: GHK -Cu, Zinc-Thymulin, PTD-DBM
Weight loss: Peptides are available for patient’s use as oral capsules, creams, or injection treatments to burn fat and enhance muscle. It is also possible to use peptides by local application for reducing fat deposits below the area of skin to which the cream is applied, and it may help reduce areas of cellulite.
Peptide: CJC, Ipamorelin, Amelox-TTA, Tesofensine, MOTS-c
MANY AREAS OF MEDICAL CARE
The following is only a partial list of the conditions for which peptides have been used in Regenerative Medicine as well as many common medical ailments.
The substance called growth hormone has unfortunately been tied to the negative publicity associated with athlete’s inappropriate use of that hormone for performance enhancement in sports. Growth hormone use itself, even when administered properly by a physician is
exceedingly expensive. Peptides provide a great alternative as they can enhance the body own ability to produce it’s own growth hormone, as the body needs it. This can enhance the burning of fat as well as enhancement of muscle tissue for those following a weight loss and exercise program. And the cost is a fraction of the cost of growth hormone treatments.
There are several peptides which can meet this challenge and the patient has the option of using a cream, capsules, or injections.
Joint, Ligament and Tendon problems-PAIN RELIEF
BPC-157 is a fascinating peptide. It is chain of 15 amino acids, known for many years, that seems to have very broad effects- thus the name BPC, which stands for Body Protection Compound. Experimentally it has been shown to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon to bone healing and healing of damaged ligaments. It also seems to protect organs, and heals and prevents ulcers of the stomach. This peptide has also been shown to reduce pain in areas of damaged tissue, lessening the need for narcotic type medications. Individuals who are suffering from muscle sprains, tears, and damage can benefit from treatment with this unique peptide. There are a number of other also well studied peptides that can assist in this very important area of medicine-pain relief and control.
For unkown reasons autoimmune conditions have been on the rise. And they affect many organs systems . There are many peptides used in this arena. One off them Thymosin Alpha-1 is another example of a very well studied and researched peptide in use around the world approved in 35 other countries. This and other peptides can be used to help with a broad range of Autoimmune conditions:
- Thyroid- Grave’s Disease, Hashimoto’s
- Bones/Joints- Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, Psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis
- Gastrointestinal System- Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis
- Skin-Psoriasis, vitiligo
- Brain/ Nervous system- Multiple sclerosis, B Gullian barre
Chronic infections- Lyme Disease, Epstein Barr virus, CMV, others
The broad action of peptides includes countering chronic infections whether they be from viruses, spirochetes, or bacteria. They can be used as an adjunct to treatments such as high dose IV Vitamin C/ mineral infusions, or for those taking antibiotics. This area of treatment also takes advantage of very well researched substances such as Thymosin Alpha-1 that are currently approved for medical treatment by the FDA’s of Europe and many other countries around the world.
Dementia and other degenerative neurologic conditions such as Multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease .
The scourge of dementia which plagues the elderly population is one of the great health care challenges of the 21st century.
Some of the peptides available for treatment such as Cerbrolysin have also been the subject of extensive research and have been approved by many FDA type governmental regulatory bodies in many places around the world and have been successfully used for years.
Other neurologic disorders such as those listed above have in common the difficult to treat problem of neurodegeneration. Similar to their effectives in dementia, peptides have been used safely, as a part of physician treatment programs for these conditions in many areas of the world.
Sleep, Libido, Fibromyalgia, others
Since peptides are made up of amino acids, which are the building blocks of the body’s proteins and are “signaling” substances in the human body, their application is very broad and so there are many peptide treatments for many conditions
Peptides for ED (erectile dysfunction), and libido
Peptides for Sleep: DSIP, Melaton II, PT 141, CJC, Ipamorelin
Peptides for Fibromyalgia
Cancer- peptide therapy has been approved by the FDA in adjutant care for Cancer patients . important note *
DISCLAIMER – our office does not offer primary cancer treatment, as Dr. Sobo is not a trained oncologist. Support for cancer patients is provided as an adjunct to the care they may be receiving from a specialist in the field of cancer treatment.
Peptides used: Thymosin Alpha 1
The term “anti-aging means different things to different health professionals and their patients, and to the public at large. We see Anti- Aging Medicine as achieving a comparatively lower “biological age” in comparison at whatever “chronologic age” person may be at. It obvious that two people who are chronologically 60 years old may appear to be quite different. On the outside one’s skin and muscle tone may seem “younger” than another person of the same calendar age. Internally one may have a circulatory system in better shape, biologically younger than another person of the same age with degenerative circulatory disease. There are many factors involved in “biological age”. Peptides may be a factor that allows one or more body systems to relatively speaking, “beat the clock” and enhance a person’s health to the extent that they seem at a biologically younger age than they otherwise might be at whatever calendar age they are at any given time.
