What is peptide therapy?
Peptide therapy is a new, advanced area of medicine, offering healing potentials equivalent to that of stem cells. We can use peptide therapy to treat patients with disease, and we can also use peptides to help prevent disease. Peptides are between two and fifty amino acids that are held together with a peptide bond. Peptides bind to receptors in the body to achieve desired outcomes. While the field of peptides may be new, peptides have been used in medicine for many years. The most widely used and well known peptide is insulin.
At Spine & Joint Solutions, we offer peptides through our sister company, Wildflower MediSpa and Wellness Center. We utilize specific peptides to upregulate processes in the body to obtain desired outcomes. We currently offer the following peptides to provide unparalleled treatment for specific conditions.
Growth Hormone Therapy: Ipamorelin + CJC-1295
Growth hormone therapy originating from external sources has some potential serious negative side effects. Due to these negative side effects, it is illegal to use growth hormone for antiaging. However, we can introduce peptides into your body to safely and physiologically allow your body to enhance the release of your own growth hormone. Additionally, peptides enhance how well your body’s receptors can receive growth hormone throughout your body. Using peptides is much safer and more effective at meeting your goals than exogenous growth hormone.
We offer a combination of Ipamorelin, a growth hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP), and CJC-1295, a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), to help you reach your goals, which could include weight loss, antiaging, muscle growth, faster healing from injury and faster recovery after physical activity.
Growth Hormone-Releasing Peptide: Ipamorelin
Ipamorelin is a growth hormone-releasing peptide and is a mimic of Ghrelin, a peptide made naturally within your GI system that positively effects your body in many ways. This peptide causes growth hormone to be excreted and also increases gene transcription to stimulate the synthesis of growth hormone. Ipamorelin can also protect your heart, induce weight loss, improve immunity, improve nerve repair, decrease symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, enhance effects of hormone replacement therapy, decrease inflammation throughout your body, decrease the neoplastic process, increase bone density, improve sleep and mood, decrease the sensation of pain, decrease stress/anxiety, improve pain from arthritis, and speed recovery after higher levels of activity.
Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone: CJC-1295
CJC-1295 is a growth hormone-releasing hormone that is created and stored in the hypothalamus. When it is released, it attaches to the growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor that causes the release of growth hormone in the body. This peptide can have significant positive effects on the body, including improvement in wound healing, pancreas activity, bone density, immune system, sleep, and cardiac tissue health, as well as improvement in the reproductive system with an inhibitory effect on cancer. CJC-1295 can also help with weight loss. Additionally, patients using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can have an increase in GHRT production, which creates a synergy between these two therapies. Another great benefit of CJC-1295 is improved potential when using stem cells for tissue repair by way of a specific signaling pathway.
BPC-157 is a body-protection compound peptide. This amazing peptide is used for many beneficial processes within the body. It reduces the release of inflammatory mediators in the body and offers a direct protective effect on cells. The benefits of BPC-157 include repair of the following: intestines, nerves, tissue and blood vessels. Additionally, this peptide decreases inflammation, promotes weight loss and improves mood. This peptide is excellent to use on a daily basis to promote overall wellness and healing.
