Peptide therapy can best be explained by the combination of amino acids, to form bio-identical proteins, when taken can illicit various therapeutic responses in the target tissue. There are numerous peptides to treat a plethora of conditions.

Peptides facilitate cell-to-cell communication, essentially telling the body which cells to turn on and off.

 

 

The three rules for Peptide therapy:

1. The Right Peptide

2. The Right Protocol

3. The Right Peptide Source

Peptide Therapy benefits include:

- Hair Growth

- Improved cognitive function

- Losing weight

- Easing joint pain

- Eases symptoms of chronic health conditions

- Better sleep

Another major benefit? They are VERY low risk.

More About Peptides and Peptide Therapy

What is a peptide?


A "peptide" is a specific chain of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), typically 100 amino acids or less, that has one or more biologic functions in the body. While some peptides exist in nature as only the amino acids that make them up (such as Glutathione), many peptides are specific pieces of larger protein molecules.




What’s an example of a peptide?


One peptide many people are familiar with is insulin. Insulin is a 51 amino acid peptide, and was the first peptide to ever be sequenced successfully outside the body.




What are peptides composed of?


Many proteins are very large and composed of hundreds and hundreds of amino acids. Often, these proteins will have specific areas (specific sequences of amino acids) that fit in a receptor and cause one specific action. For example, Growth Hormone is a large protein (191 amino acids) but different parts of that protein have different functions.

For example, one part of it will bind in muscle and tendon to repair, and another part (the lipolytic fragment) is responsible for reducing body fat. Therefore, one large protein molecule may have very different actions in different tissues, and multiple active and different peptide segments.




How are peptides made?


Presently, special compounding pharmacies that have the capability to sequence these amino acids can make peptides outside the body. When a protein's "active area" (the region that actually binds to a receptor on a cell) is discovered and sequenced, that peptide can, theoretically, be made (sequenced) outside the body. It is NOT as simple as it sounds, there is A LOT that goes in to making a peptide, (and then testing it for stability and purity and consistency) before it can be used clinically.




How are peptides administered?


The majority of peptides, like insulin, are injected into a patient’s body with very tiny needles. But some are used as nasal sprays, topical creams and foams, and capsules.




What medical conditions are peptides used to treat?


Peptides are very cutting edge technology, and are now being used safely and effectively to help people in many different ways. Dr. Abrahamson utilizes peptides in all areas of her practice for her patients. Some examples of areas Dr Abrahamson uses peptides are: - Repair and Recovery - Preventative Health and Longevity Medicine - Cognitive Enhancement and Repair (after TBI, stroke, dementia, neurodegenerative disorders) - Aesthetics and Collagen Production - Hair Growth - Chronic Infections - Autoimmune Disorders - Arthritis - Painful joints, muscles, spine - Growth Hormone optimization - Fat Loss and Muscle Gain - Sleep - Sexual Health - Depression and Anxiety




How do I know if peptides might be able to help me?


The only way to truly know if Dr Abrahamson can use Peptides to help you, is to have a certified expert in cellular medicine evaluate you, like Dr Abrahamson. Call or email and book your appointment!
