We have an exciting and relatively inexpensive new tool in our belt when it comes to regenerative medicine today! Yes, we’re talking stem cell activation, antiaging, weight loss, immune modulation and more. The category of peptides is incredibly diverse and research is expanding at a breath taking rate. Here are some highlights in case you’ve never heard about this.
What is Peptide Therapy?
In recent years, the use of peptides in healthcare has grown and is now widely available as a treatment option for numerous conditions. I am always researching new advances in medicine to ensure our patients receive the highest quality of care. As such, we are proud to offer peptide therapy to our patients as a method of improving their overall health, wellness, and quality of life.
What are peptides?
Peptides are the building blocks of proteins and are composed of amino acids that work to regulate a variety of biological functions and processes. These naturally occurring peptides act as signaling molecules within the body and instruct other cells and molecules on what functions to perform.
There are over 7,000 known peptides within the human body and though some may be similar each is responsible for facilitating a different response and action within the body. Some common functions of peptides include providing pain relief, aiding in soft tissue repair, accelerating healing processes, promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain, reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction, and improving hormone production and cognitive function. The unique property of peptides can be harnessed and used to treat specific conditions; this treatment process is known as peptide therapy.
What is peptide therapy?
Though our bodies naturally produce peptides, the production of peptides can vary greatly by individual and as we age, the number and quality of peptides within the body may decline. Peptide therapy refers to restoring the number of peptides to stimulate cellular regrowth systems within the body as a treatment option for specific conditions. Peptides are typically administered directly into the bloodstream through subcutaneous injections, but may also be applied as topical creams, nasal sprays, or oral forms. This form of treatment can be entirely customized to the patient’s unique needs and goals. By using this targeted method, we can produce a specific reaction in the body and treat a variety of conditions.
What are the benefits of peptide therapy?
As stated above, peptide therapy is an extremely unique treatment option that can be used to treat a variety of concerns. Some of the benefits of peptide therapy can include but are not limited to the following:
- Accelerate healing processes
- Boost hormone levels
- Build muscle mass
- Decrease joint and muscle pain
- Enhance cognitive function and memory
- Help reverse symptoms of sexual dysfunction
- Improve sleep quality
- Increase levels of energy, stamina, and strength
- Lower blood pressure
- Promote healthy immune function
- Reduce signs of aging
- Stimulate hair growth
Why should I consider peptide therapy?
Since peptides are naturally found throughout the body, it is no surprise that when disordered, they can create ripples of effects across multiple systems that may affect other bodily functions such as your digestion, metabolism, weight loss, sexual desire, inflammation, neuropathy, and a myriad of age-related conditions.
Peptide therapy can aid in treating these conditions by mimicking your body’s own peptides, which elicit a particular desired response. As peptides are naturally occurring and specific in function, they are well tolerated within your body with minimal to no side effects of treatment. Generally, peptides used in therapy are crafted from animal or plant protein sources such as eggs, milk, meat, soy, oats, flaxseed, hemp seed, and wheat.
If any of the benefits mentioned regarding peptide therapy sound appealing to you, consider scheduling an appointment to talk to your doctor about the benefits of peptide therapy. A consultation with our team is the best way to ensure you find the right treatment option for your lifestyle and goals. For more information on peptide therapy and how we can help you, contact:
Commonly Recommended Peptides:
BPC-157(or, Body Protective Compound 157) is a peptide chain consisting of 15 amino acids that has been researched for its extremely high level of biological healing activity. It is derived from a protective protein found in the stomach and can be administered orally, subcutaneously, intramuscularly, or intranasally. BPC 157 is a type of peptide therapy that has been recently studied to produce systemic effects on both the brain and the gut, and repair those systems. It also has protective effects extending beyond the stomach and intestinal tract. It has been shown to benefit: ulcers in the stomach, intestinal damage such as fistulas and inflammatory disorders, bone and joint healing and growth rates, and organ damage. It also has influences on the brain.
TB-500 is a synthetic peptide of the naturally occuring healing protein present in about all human and mammalian cells known as Thymosin Beta 4 (TB4). TB 500 is thought to have beneficial effects on wound healing, injury recovery, flexibility, and inflammation. Research indicated the effects of TB 500 are on blood cell and blood vessel development, cellular differentiation, and cell migration. The healing capability is due in large from the peptide’s regulation of actin, a cell building protein essential to healing and wound repair. TB 500 is produced in the thymus gland and is found in high concentrations in wound fluids. Research demonstrates it has wound healing properties in addition to healing and repair of skin, cornea, and heart.
TB 500 is a naturally occurring peptide also found in high concentrations in blood platelets. TB-500 peptides for research are not growth factors; rather major actin regulating protein peptides. TB 500 plays an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured and/or damaged tissues. The gene that codes for Thymosin Beta-4 was noted in a study to be one of the first to be stimulated after an incident of injury. Present in almost all human and animal cells, Thymosin Beta 4 is naturally occurring wound healing peptide. TB 500 , a synthetically made version of TB4 that facilitates comparable healing and recovery by helping building new blood vessels, muscle tissue fibers, blood cells, and facilitating cell migration. For a stressed and injured person, TB 500 can offer an extremely desirable wound healing effects.
CJC-1295 is a synthetic GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) analogue made up of 30 amino acids. It has been found to be highly effective with regards to the increase of growth hormone secretion and IGF-1 without negatively affecting the pulsatility of GH secretion. CJC-1295 is often combined with Ipamorelin due to its enhanced specificity as a GHRH. This peptide generates similar increases in growth hormone secretion, but without the appetite stimulation and increase in cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin, and aldosterone seen with other peptides in its class. This peptide has been found to be very well-tolerated and perfect when combined with Ipamorelin. Gland Stimulated: Pituitary
CJC 1295 offers many benefits to the body, including: Increased growth hormone secretion and IGF-1 Levels with no increase in prolactin, increased Body Weight and Length through increased protein synthesis, increased Muscle Growth, Bone Density, Immune Function, Cognition and Memory, Collagen Production, Fat Loss, increased Cellular Repair and Regeneration. CJC-1295 also promotes slow wave deep sleep, which is responsible for the highest level of muscle growth and memory retention and rejuvenation.
AOD 9604 has become a real heavyweight among people looking to become both leaner and lighter. While many consider it a weight loss wonder, this peptide is actually a fragment of human growth hormone (HGH). It’s natural ability to stimulate the pituitary gland helps to speed up your metabolism, which helps you burn fat and boosts your calorie burn—all without increasing your hunger or blood sugar. Fat doesn’t stand a chance against this naturally powerful peptide, whose impressive fat-fighting abilities can provide the following benefits, such as: Reducing body fat, increasing calorie burn, triggering fat release, boosting your metabolism, preventing non-fatty foods from turning into body fat, and reducing your appetite. In addition, there are no negative effects on blood sugar levels or tissue growth.
According to clinical studies, the remarkable power of AOD 9604 is found in its ability to regulate your body’s metabolism. By stimulating the metabolism’s natural fat-burning process, it triggers the release of fat from obese fat cells, while also working to decrease the growth of new fat in the surrounding fat cells. This results in greater weight loss and less overall body fat, without any uncomfortable effects on your appetite or blood sugar. Along with its recognized fat-burning qualities, additional studies have found that AOD 9604 may have a regenerative influence on bone & cartilage repair, particularly when it’s used along with peptide BPC 157.
PEG-MGF Pegylated Mechano Growth Factor is used for muscle recovery and new muscle growth. It binds to receptors and recovers the damaged muscle tissues, as well as signaling satellite cells to grow. This can be helpful to workouts, but also to age-related muscle loss issues and conditions. The benefit of PEG-MGF over the past variants of IGF, is that it doesn’t just repair damaged muscle tissue. Primarily, MGF is used in conditions requiring anabolic enhancement, including bony and soft tissue repair (e.g., tendon, ligament, muscle) following injury, sarcopenia (muscle wasting), stroke, or heart attack. PEG-MGF is a safe and effective option for use in patients who are looking to improve recovery and repair through anabolic signaling.

LESS PAIN, MORE LIFE!! even life more abundantly is the mission we are on. Change your thoughts, change your life, starting today.
What is fasting?
It is as simple as stopping eating completely, or almost completely, for a certain amount of time. You may be thinking, “ok and why would I want to stop eating, that sounds hard?”. That would be a great question, there are many reasons why you should consider fasting.
The many why’s to fasting include:
- Healing the metabolism and burning fat
- Restoring insulin sensitivity
- Reducing inflammation
- Increasing cellular autophagy
- Increasing stem cell production
- Boosting youthful hormones
- Reducing chronic disease risk
- Improving relationship with food
- Improving mental health and focus
- Improving energy
There is much to fasting and the many ways it will benefit you. So let’s break it down even further to why these aspects are so important to your health and your life, and hopefully by the end, you will be convinced that fasting is for you.
Healing the metabolism, Fat burning, and Restoring Insulin Sensitivity
Besides the obvious reason of looking good and having an endless supply of energy, these components are important for staying healthy, not getting diabetes, staying lean and not being obese, keeping a healthy heart, and preventing cancer.
To sum up, what is in this diagram, when there is insulin resistance in the body, the consumption of carbs causes insulin in the body to increase but the cells resist it and so there is more insulin secreted which causes inflammation in the body and increases the carb craving. Insulin also is in charge of delivering certain nutrients to the cells but when the body resists it, then it can’t do its job. Insulin resistance causes fat storage and people who find themselves with this resistance will have more abdominal fat, fatty liver disease, elevated triglycerides, and other unhealthy fat deposits.
This is where fasting comes into the picture. Fasting naturally gives your blood and cells a chance to use up their glucose storage and reset insulin receptors. This means that fasting uses the fat that is already stored within the body and processes it so that our body can catch up. Another thing that fasting does is it naturally kicks you into ketosis, which is a form of metabolism that creates a lower amount of oxidative stress. Inducing ketosis improved almost every marker of metabolic health.
Boosting Youthful Hormones
If you still aren’t convinced that fasting is what you need, how about preventing aging and increasing your youthful looks? Sound enticing yet?
Fasting is proven to increase your HGH which is the hormone that keeps us young. Why waste thousands of dollars on anti-aging creams when all you need to do is eliminate food for a certain amount of time? Also, hormone replacement therapy of HGH helped the above but caused side effects of elevated blood sugar, elevated blood pressure, and increased fluid retention. But with fasting elevated levels of HGH were produced with no shown negative side effects. And did you know that HGH prevents the body from going into starvation mode while fasting and enhances skin repair, heals internal organs, protects the brain from deterioration, and maintains bone marrow? If you want to look good and stay looking good, fasting is the way.
Increasing Stem Cell Production
Stem cells are the cells that develop into blood, the brain, bones, and all of the body’s organs. They have the potential to repair, restore, replace, and regenerate cells, and could possibly be used to treat many medical conditions and diseases. Here are all the different types of stem cells within the body:
When you fast, you increase the stem cells in your body The level of stem cell activity seems to be dependent on the length of the fast. The longer that you fast, the higher levels of stem cells are produced for up to 5 days, and then the stem cell production plateaus.
Now that this is all clearly laid out, what is still holding you back? Oh, you have heard all the myths about fasting! You’ve probably heard that you lose muscle or that it will cause nutrition deficiencies, well I am here to ease your mind and put your worries to rest with those myths.
First, some have said that you will be nutrient deficient, which is a myth. Fasting actually aids with being able to absorb nutrition better. Fasting does this by giving your gut bacteria and the whole digestive system a break that is well deserved. What actually causes nutrition deficiencies are:
- A low-nutrient diet
- Poor digestion due to low stomach acid levels
- Leaky gut
- Blood sugar imbalances, which prevent insulin from transporting nutrients into the cell
- Chronic stress
Second, it was said that you’d lose muscle if you fast, which is not true if you eat enough nutrient-dense calories and protein, fasting promotes the ideal hormonal conditions for building muscle and burning fat at the same time.
The last thing you may be asking is, how do I fast? There are several ways that you can fast which I will share with you below.
How to Fast
Here are the 7 ways that you can fast, the easiest being the simple fast which is 12 hours.
For some this may still be hard so you can gradually ease your body into the idea of eating less food by:
- Week 1 & 2–Eliminate sugar and fast daily for 12-14 hours.
- Week 3–Crescendo or cycle fasting with ketogenic refeeds (16-hour fast 2-3 days/week)
- Week 4–Daily 16-18 hour fasts with ketogenic refeeds
- Week 5–Add a 24-hour fat fast once per week
- Week 6–Add 24-hour water fast once/a week
If this is even too hard for you, you can start by eliminating sugar, and here are a few strategies to help with sugar cravings.
1.Low Carb, Ketogenic Lifestyle
2.Lemons, limes, apple cider vinegar
3.Super brain squats
4.Water and good salts
5.Stevia and monk fruit
6.Reduce stress and adapt stronger
7.Support dopamine production
Hopefully, you are convinced why you should fast and have gotten an understanding of what fasting is, what it is good for, and the myths about it to help you on your journey to better healing, and a happier, healthier self.
The doctor keeps telling me to fulcrum, but then I forget how to do it.
Well not anymore, here are some websites, videos, and instructions to help you fulcrum either your lumbar, cervical, or sacrum.
Fulcrum are an essential part of spinal rehabilitation. They provide support for your lumbar (low back) and cervical (neck) regions while performing rehab exercises on them. The exercises are targeted to retrain the muscles and ligaments of the spinal system to function in a more optimal position.

Stress affects every individual’s life and not in a good way. Dr. Patrick Porter, BrainTap founder has said,
“The effects of stress on our health, productivity, and quality of life are more devastating than people want to admit. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, 80 to 90 percent of all illnesses are caused by direct or indirect stress.”
Through careful research and extensive testing, Dr. Porter has found a way to get all the benefits of meditation without having the years of disciplined effort to obtain the state of meditation to heal, achieve your goals, Better resilience to stress, improve sleep, and lower stress. The way that this is attained is through four ways.
The first is through binaural beats, how this works is through providing two different tones with their frequency separated only by a few hertz. By doing this, the brain hears a third tone, a phantom tone, which is the difference that the brain hears between the two separate frequencies. Through this, your brain naturally goes into relaxation. Through the algorithms that BrainTap has produced, it has been shown that it produces states of calm and concentration which results in being able to have the full effects of the guided visualization, and have the outcome of performance that would otherwise take years of practice.
The second way is through guided visualizations, which is reached by someone speaking which helps the listener depict an image in their brain for the desired outcome. Visualization has been studied for a long time and how it affects mental states, improved health, and performance. Visualization is powerful, to begin with, but with the added features that BrainTap adds, it increases and optimizes the guided meditations.
The third is the 10-cycle holographic music, which provides a 360 sound environment that allows the brain to find the visualizations more real. Holographic music provides a more receptive state of learning for the brain.
The last is isochronic tones which vary in intensity followed by silence according to the desired effect. This makes it easy for the brain to follow along with things.
There is an added element when the headset is used, which includes lights. The pulsing lights produce added relaxation which is known to affect serotonin and endorphins with an average increase of 21%.
If you aren’t convinced of the research and meditation and specifically BrainTap, here are more links to check out.
Niels Finsen was the first scientist that discovered the healing effects of light in 1896. He first started treating lupus vulgaris and tuberculosis by using electrical light up to 15 times concentrated. The treatments included daily time with the light for up to two hours and found it was successful in clearing the diseases.1
Niels Finsen later won a Nobel Prize in 1903 for his discovery of light therapy. In the beginning, it was called phototherapy. In the 1960s, it was referred to as LED light therapy and was used all around Europe to treat chronic pain, arthritis, associated conditions, joint rehabilitation, and soft-tissue injury along with other medical ailments.
In the 1980s, it expanded to more clinics and medical institutions using LED light therapy. Many studies came out finding that the tissues themselves were healing and cosmetic conditions were improved with using this light.
In the 1990s professional sports teams and athletes started to use LED lights to heal their sports injuries. It also began to be popular with physical therapists and they found that the time of recovery was 50 times faster with this light therapy.2
Today light therapy is used in clinics, hospitals, physical therapists, cosmetology, chiropractors, and more because of its amazing benefits in healing the body.
What is LED light good for?
Skin and Hair Regrowth
The most well-known condition that light treats are skin and it causes no damage to the skin. Red light can heal sunburn damage and helps reduce wrinkles, fine lines on the skin, acne, and sagging eye bags. The light works with an inside-out approach by causing regeneration at the cellular level.3
Research in 2013 found “there is a wide range of applications of use in dermatology, especially in indications where stimulation of healing, reduction of inflammation, reduction of cell death and skin rejuvenation are required”.4
In 2007, placebo controlled and the double-blinded study was produced showing how effective LED light is in rejuvenating the skin, especially wrinkles.5
There is a study that shows the effectiveness of LED light on the skin.
Not only is it good for the skin but also for hair. Light stimulates dormant hair follicles into entering the growth phase, it increases blood flow and increases collagen production to restore normal hair growth.6
Inflammation and Pain
Another thing that this therapy is good for is the reduction of inflammation which qualifies for most people. A study published in 2017 proved that LED light is effective in reducing inflammation in the brain, abdominal fat, wounds, lungs, and spinal cord.7
Red light is effective in penetrating the muscles and promoting healing, reduction of inflammation, and blood flow. In a 2016 research, it was found that red light reduces hypersensitivity.8 And in a study from 2014, the conclusion was found that it was effective with neuropathic pain.9 Yet another study from 2003 found that there was a significant reduction in pain in chronic joint disorders.10
The next benefit is weight loss; red light has a stimulating effect on the metabolism and causes fat cells to shrink. A study from 2015 shows: that “combined with exercise was effective in controlling the lipid profile, reducing the mass of adipose tissue, suggesting increased metabolic activity and changes in lipid metabolism.”11A 2015 study found that red light is beneficial with exercise and red light therapy in losing fat.12
Red light activates the mitochondria to produce more energy and this leads to quicker regeneration and growth. The light also helps with recovery because of the way red light helps with inflammation.
Research in 2015 shows that red light lessens oxidative stress and is also beneficial in cases of muscle fatigue and injury. The conclusion found was that “it can improve muscle performance, reduce muscle fatigue during exercises, and benefit muscle repair”.13
It was found in a 2016 study that athletes that got hurt and used red light therapy greatly reduced the time it took for them to heal and get back to playing.14
Wound Healing and Scar Reduction
There is a lot of research that shows how red-light heals wounds. It works by activating stem cells, reducing inflammation, and supporting the formation of collagen and density in the tissues. Research showed that the light accelerated healing and infection.15And it helps to prevent scarring and optimize wound healing.16
Good sleep is of vital importance for the body’s and mind’s wellbeing. There has been a spike in the number of sleep disorders in the past years. Blue light is known to affect the sleep quality that we get, but red light counteracts the blue light and promotes good sleep. It was tested in 2012 with elite female basketball players to improve the quality of sleep and prevent sleep disorders.17Another study showed that red light doesn’t suppress melatonin and “can be used to mitigate sleep inertia upon waking.”18
Brain injuries and Brain Disorders
The awesome thing about red light therapy is that it penetrates through bones.19This is a huge discovery and could be revolutionary for healing the brain and progressing forward with solutions for mental illness.20
There are also many more applications that can be used with the red light laser in treating physical and mental problems. Red light works at the cellular levels so many sessions and constant use is needed to see results. It may take several weeks to notice a difference or a few months but it will be worth it. The results from thousands of studies show that this red light laser is effective if you are consistent in using it.
In the 20th century, it was first found and used to test polio patients’ muscle weakness. In 1949 two physiotherapists, (Kendall and Kendall), used it to test neuromusculoskeletal conditions. 15 years after that discovery, George Goodheart developed a technique that didn’t only test the muscles alone, but figured out how the nervous system controlled the muscle function. He was the founder of the practice that over 40% of all chiropractors use today. Later his technique emerged into a different kind of style that is used by millions of practitioners all over the world.1
Kinesiology is related the to one of the principles of Isaac Newton:
“For every action in nature, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”2
Applied Kinesiology utilizes this principle in the human body. If there is stress or abnormal nervous system input in the body, a muscle will go weak when tested. The same thing applies to testing without using the patients’ muscles, but with the practitioner using a belt or their hand to test without touching the patient. The non-touch concept is the same but when a belt or hand that the practitioner uses, it will “stick” or “slide” which means that there is a weakness.
This type of testing is based on the theory that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands, and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances, other organ or gland problems. Applied Kinesiology can also evaluate nutritional needs and supplementation, and identify allergies.3
There have been several studies testing Applied Kinesiology. The first study in 2013 tested if there was validity to kinesiology. In this study, they had two kinesiologists and one person who wasn’t a kinesiologist test a set of vials on participants. The vials were diluted saline, except for one vial that was hydrochloride which is a toxic solution. The results found in this study are that the kinesiologists found with significant accuracy which vial was toxic.4
The second study showed that when testing with applied Kinesiology with true or false statements that when the participant said a false statement that their arm went weak.5
Another study found that experienced kinesiologists found 98% accuracy in muscle strength.6
Yet another study took students with phobias and recorded a baseline, pre-intervention, and postintervention of their pulse. It was found, that the students that got their spines manipulated significantly decreased the intensity of emotional arousal reported by phobic subjects.7
The last study tested if kinesiology could find if participants were allergic to certain foods. The conclusion was found, that the practitioners were able to predict with 90% accuracy the allergies.8
So if you don’t believe in kinesiology now go look at the research yourself. If that still doesn’t convince you go test it on a friend by asking them yes or no statements that are false or true and see if their muscles go weak or hold strong.
So you come in, we give you glasses, we ring a tuning fork, and then we hand you some vials.
What are these vials?
There is actually a good reason why we hand you these vials believe it or not. Let me explain.
First, let’s take a look at water; water is the universal storage device, water holds frequencies. If you don’t believe me check this video out.
Frequencies create water clusters and this is how water stores information. This is powerful because our body is largely made up of water. If you don’t think that what you say, the environment you are in, the music you listen to, or the food you eat affects your body, think again. We are deeply affected by frequencies.
Did you know that the nervous system turns everything in our world into vibrations?
This is the very means of how our body tastes, smells, sees, and hears, it is all through frequencies that the brain interprets. So the water we have in our body remembers and it holds onto frequencies. Many times, the body holds onto trauma, injury, and stress in the tissues through the water clusters and creates a blockage.
This is where the vials come in and play an important role. The vials that you hold in your hand contain clusters of water that are similar to the clusters of water that are held in the tissues causing the blockage. The vials that you hold are found out by muscle testing which is based on frequencies. The frequencies held in the vials activate the water clusters that hold the trauma, injury, and stress in the specific tissues. By holding the vials in your hand when we tap down the back, it harmonies your body to the vials and eliminates the blockage.
And that is the power of the vials.
What is this tuning fork?
It is all about frequency. Tuning forks vibrate different types of specific frequencies and this is what we call sound therapy.
Tuning forks were invented in 1711 by John Shore. Tuning forks were originally used as musical instruments played in churches in Europe, and it was also used to tune instruments.
Later in the 20th century, doctors used it to test muscles and bone’s neural pathways. In the 1960s, an osteopath called Sir Peter Guy Manners found that sounds stimulate the human body’s ability to heal itself.
How does it work?
Through the frequency that the tuning fork rings, it increases the energy flow in the body. What this does is it improves circulation and eliminates blocked energy in the body. It is based on the principle that everything is made up of vibrations.
Did you know that sound resonates 4 times faster in water? Our bodies are made up of water and water conducts sound, and because our body is from 55-78% water the body resonates the sound produced by the tuning forks. 1
Natures Sound Retreat summarizes it as this:
“This is the use of sound and vibration to balance the body’s energy. It reduces tension and promotes emotional harmony, and works in a similar way to acupuncture. Instead of needles, sound frequencies are used to stimulate points in the body.”2
Using the different forks affects our biological rhythms. When we synchronize to the tunes it enables the body to find balance and homeostasis. If you don’t know, homeostasis is essential for healing of the body, mind, and spirit.
Benefits of Tuning Forks
The sound waves produced by the forks travel into the body along the energy pathways, this affects the body’s balance, space, memory, and healing.
Some of the benefits that are listed:
- Tunes natural cycles of the body
- Unites passages, aids digestion
- Natural anti-inflammatory
- Increases bone density and promotes healing of strained muscle, tendon and ligaments
- Nervous system balanced
- Chronic pain
- Pain caused by physical trauma
- Insomnia or low-quality sleep
Tuning Forks therapy facilitates:
- Balance and homeostasis in the body
- Opens energetic pathways, alleviating stasis and relieving pain
- Relaxes muscle tension
- Keeps stress and anxiety balance4
