For both men and women, sexual dysfunctions such as erectile dysfunction (ED), low libido, and difficulty achieving orgasm are common and become increasingly prevalent with age. There are many types of therapies available to treat sexual dysfunction, and one that is gaining increased popularity is peptide therapy.
What is Peptide Therapy?
A peptide is a type of biological molecule just a little smaller than a protein. Where a protein is made up of fifty or more amino acids that are chemically bonded together, peptides are made up of 10-50. There are many thousands of peptides known in all forms of life, from plants to bacteria to amphibians to mammals, and they carry out every basic function of life, including digestion, circulation, respiration, and cognition.
The most commonly known peptide is insulin, which is administered to diabetes patients to make up for deficiencies in their bodies. Researchers are discovering that certain peptides such as bremelanotide improve sexual functioning in men and women, and can be administered quickly and painlessly.
Peptide therapy is the introduction of peptides in subcutaneous form to alleviate sexual dysfunction. It has been shown to improve the quality of erections in men, particularly those with diabetes, and decrease the symptoms of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) including lack of lubrication, low libido, inability to achieve orgasm, and painful intercourse.
Treatments last up to three days and can be administered up to twice a week. Results usually become apparent within a few hours.
Peptide therapy is helping many individuals achieve increased sexual satisfaction. Schedule an appointment today to discuss the benefits of this revolutionary treatment.
So I’ve been on hormone therapy for a few years and but hated having to constantly inject myself every 2 weeks and the hormone fluctuations were rough sometimes. I decided to look around from pellet therapy and found Dr. Mack provided what I was looking for. When I finally got a chance to meet her, she was so sweet and really attentive, not only that, she noticed my hypothyroidism from my blood test (something I totally forgot to ask her about when I was there!)
I started my journey to better health in January of 2015. Since then I’ve lost 60 pounds and feel great. As well, I’ve started working with their functional medicine doctor, Dr. Mack. She is compassionate, kind and oh so knowledgeable. Every step of the way I’ve been monitored physically and nutritionally… I cannot express it enough that if you are looking for a journey to better health this is definitely the place you should start!
