Peptides are tiny proteins made up of short chains of amino acids. They signal the cells in your body to perform in specific ways. While they may be extremely small, they’re really a BIG deal because they are responsible for all of the ways that your body and mind function.
Different peptides affecting different cells and functions can be highly tailored and targeted to treat a wide variety of conditions.
Peptides work synergistically and can be used with many other therapies to increase the effectiveness of antibiotics, antiviral and antiparasitic medications, IV nutrient therapies, hormone therapies, detoxification therapies, herbal remedies, and even other peptides.
Since it is such a new form of therapy, there are a lot of questions our community has, from uses to sourcing to understanding what exactly a peptide even is.
This recording of our live webinar addresses many questions we regularly receive on peptides. We hope it helps you have a better understanding of what they are and the many systems of the body that can be precisely targeted to aid healing.
During the webinar, we covered:
✦What are peptides?
✦What are the functions of peptides?
✦What is peptide therapy?
✦Sourcing of peptides
✦Peptides we use most often in our practice for Complex Chronic Illness – peptides for: immune modulation, brain function, hormonal support, sleep support and libido
At our clinic, Gordon Medical, we are seeing improvements using peptide therapies in a multitude of areas, including:
• Immune dysregulation
• Chronic inflammation
• Neurological impairment
• GI issues such as leaky gut
• Musculoskeletal pain
• Sleep disorders
• Pituitary and hypothalamic dysfunction
• Hormone deficiencies
• Mitochondrial dysfunction
• Coagulation Defects
• Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)
Peptides are such a fascinating and timely topic and we are excited to share this conversation with you.
Now there are some patients, though they’re few and far between, who can’t tolerate the peptides. You might be one of them. They need to be done very, very carefully. And at low doses. We don’t recommend just grabbing the peptides and starting them, just like with any medication or any supplement. It’s got to be under the watch of somebody who’s experienced in using them.
