Peptide Therapy Q&A

What are the benefits of peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy presents a variety of benefits, including:

  • Better workouts and recovery
  • Improved libido
  • Strengthened immune system
  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Better sleep
  • Disease prevention
  • Lean muscle development and growth

In addition, peptide therapy helps regulate your hormones. When your hormones are in balance, you’re able to focus and think clearly. That can improve performance at work or in academic settings.

What are peptides?

Peptides are the building blocks of protein. They occur naturally in your body and help slow down the aging process. 

Peptides are made of amino acids. They occur in plant and animal sources, including eggs, beans, lentils, oats, and wheat.

What is peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that increases peptide production throughout your body. The peptides administered during peptide therapy bind to your cells and act as messengers. 

Specifically, peptide therapy encourages the production of human growth hormone (HGH). HGH helps regulate various functions, including body composition, muscle and bone growth, and metabolism.

Am I a good candidate for peptide therapy?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for peptide therapy, Dr. Sanderson conducts a comprehensive telehealth evaluation. During your appointment, he reviews your medical history and asks about your symptoms and lifestyle.

If these measures don’t provide enough information, Dr. Sanderson might order laboratory tests to see if you have a hormonal imbalance or nutritional deficiency.

If Dr. Sanderson determines that you’re a good candidate for peptide therapy, he writes a prescription and sends it to you digitally. You take your prescription to a local pharmacy that provides you with the necessary tools, including a syringe and peptide medication. The type of peptides you receive depends on your age, health history, and goals for treatment.  

Is peptide therapy safe?

Peptide therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated. Because peptides occur in your body naturally, there’s no risk of side-effects or complications. That said, it may take weeks or months to experience noticeable results. Follow Dr. Sanderson’s instructions carefully and attend all telehealth follow-up appointments.

You’ll notice an improvement in your symptoms three to four weeks after your first injection. Be patient, and your results will continue to improve.
