What is Peptide Therapy?

Peptide therapy is a newly developed medical treatment that has gained new heights in Precision and Functional Medicine for its efficacy, safety and ease of use.

Peptides signal the different body organs and tissues to manufacture and release hormones and different substances that are used to induce certain biochemical reactions and changes leading to new cell formation, changes in action or reaction optimizing and augmenting cellular function.

The Beauty of Botox

Posted by on Wed, Mar 27, 2019

I know that it may seem incongruous for an integrative medical practice to offer neurotoxic protein such as Botox Cosmetic and Xeomin

However, it works, and this popular non-surgical procedure works very well to temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines in the forehead, crow's feet and between the eyebrows. The Botox brand has been around for sixteen years and has an excellent safety record.

Yes, the neurotoxin does migrate and does get detoxified by the liver.  I wouldn't recommend it to people who have severe detoxification dysfunction. Botox is safe for most people and so many, many people want it.  You would be surprised at how many people you know get Botox injections (even some who say they do not).  Botox Cosmetic, Xeomin, and Dysport brands do more than just help us look better.
