Peptides are a fascinating area of regenerative medicine that can be used for anti-aging, immune function, gut healing, and tissue repair. Peptides are an essential part of nature and biochemistry, and hundreds of thousands of peptides occur naturally in the human body and in animals. They may also be manufactured in a laboratory. Peptides are made up of 2 to about 50 amino acids strung together in a sequence.
My interest in clinical and therapeutic uses of peptides started as a personal quest to heal a long-standing overuse injury, proximal hamstring tendinosis, of which treatments are few and far between. The more I learned about peptides, the more excited I became in their potential as one of the most powerful clinical modalities in regenerative medicine. In addition to the above-mentioned uses, peptides have cosmetic applications and have promising applications in traumatic brain injury, sleep, longevity (telomere lengthening), Alzheimer's disease, dementia, colitis, arthritis, skin health and healing, and so much more.
I recently completed the Peptides Certification Course with the Age Management Medicine Group (AMMG). I am thrilled to be incorporating the use of peptides in my wellness a, functional, and regenerative medicine practice in Evergreen at Holistic Therapies.
