What Is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is a treatment approach that involves the deliberate use of peptides to trigger a specific reaction from the body, whether external or internal. Peptides are chains of amino acids that the body uses as signaling molecules for biological processes. Peptide therapy is generally safe and several peptides are now approved by the FDA for medical use and applications.

More than 80 FDA-approved peptides can be added to your health plan to help treat weight loss, inflammation, low libido, joint pain, hair growth, and a long list of other concerns.

Ideal Candidates for Peptide Therapy

Peptide therapy is highly recommended for individuals with good overall health. You are an ideal candidate for peptide therapy if you have low peptide levels which do not respond to supplements or whole foods intake. You may also be a good candidate for this non-invasive treatment if you are looking for alternative ways to address specific bodily ailments and conditions.

Your Peptide Therapy Consultation

A quick medical examination will be performed, including drawing your blood. This will give information about the levels of hormones and peptides in your body. A review of your medical history will be conducted. Discuss your lifestyle and symptoms with Dr. Shafer and a personalized treatment plan will be developed for you.
