I recently added Peptide Therapy as a treatment for my chronic Lyme. In three of my podcasts, Dr. Rawls, Dr. Desylvia, and Dr. Holtorf all talk about how peptide therapy has become a staple treatment to combat Lyme Disease. The FDA has approved many peptides to help with various diseases, and they are deemed safe to use with little side effects. I take peptides via a shot twice per day.
What are Peptides?
Peptides are amino acids that assist in the building of proteins needed for your body. The body uses these proteins to help the cells to communicate with each other. This communication may have become impaired because of your illness. Through peptides, the body can switch different cell functions on and off.
What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptide therapy is administering peptides into the body through subcutaneous injections, nasal sprays, or creams. There are different reasons to take peptide therapy. Some are weight loss, anti-aging, reduction of inflammation, increase muscle mass, and increase human growth hormone production. People with autoimmune diseases and chronic Lyme can see benefits from Peptide Therapy.
I currently take Thymosin Alpha 1 and Thymosin Beta 4. Thymosin Alpha 1 helps reverse T cell exhaustion, reduces inflammation, increases natural killer cells, enhances immune recognition of foreign pathogens, and increases immune response for chronic illnesses. Thymosin Beta 4 is a 43-amino-acid peptide that promotes healing throughout the body. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. It can repair tissue damage as well.
Other popular peptides for Lyme are Oral BPC-157 and FGL(1). BPC-157 is fantastic for digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel diseases, “leaky gut,” and celiac disease. Some of these digestive issues are common with chronic Lyme patients. FGL(I) comes in a nasal spray and improves cognition and memory by supporting brain neurons, reducing brain inflammation, reducing amyloid plaques, and decreasing cell death in the nervous system.
