Peptide Therapy Improves Cellular Function and Helps Our Bodies Work More Efficiently
Peptide Therapy is rapidly emerging in the medical field as a viable treatment for numerous conditions and as a booster of overall health. Dr. Brzezinski is very excited to now offer this promising new therapy to her patients in Naples, FL.
What Are Peptides?
Because everyone’s natural production of peptides varies and overall peptide production tends to decline with age, peptide therapy is being developed to bridge gaps between a person’s natural peptide production and specific peptide therapeutic function. With peptide therapy, doctors can aim to influence specific functions within the body at the cellular level to reach a variety of health benefits. Peptide therapy supplements come in both natural and bioidentical formulations, and numerous health and cosmetic products contain different peptides based on their potential anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, immune response, muscle building, and/or other health-related properties. Whether supplement specific or as a product additive, peptides are currently being used for:
- Immune system boosting (common cold, Lyme’s disease, allergies, viruses, bacterial infections)
- Autoimmune disease control (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia)
- Gastrointestinal distress issues (slowed-digestion, irritable bowel syndrome, gastric ulcers, diarrhea)
- Skin tone and texture enhancement through increased collagen formation
- Wound healing and post-operative wound healing
- Joint pain and sports-related soft-tissue injuries such as tendonitis
- Blood clot prevention
- Muscle and bone support and enhancement
- Sexual interest and experience enhancement
- Weight control and loss
- Neurological issues
- Hair restoration
- Pain relief

Peptide therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including hormone imbalances, autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, inflammation, and more.
Peptide therapy can be administered in several ways, including injections, creams, and oral supplements. The specific method of administration will depend on the individual patient and their needs.

Optimize Hormone Production – Weight Loss
THYMOSIN BETA-4 (TB4)
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonist that helps lower blood sugar levels by increasing insulin production. Semaglutide works by stimulating the growth of pancreatic beta cells, which help synthesize and secrete insulin and inhibit the production of glucagon, a hormone that increases blood sugar. The peptide also helps reduce body fat by slowing digestion and suppressing one’s appetite. Initially approved by the FDA for type 2 diabetes in injectable form in 2017 and as an oral medication in 2019, the FDA expanded its approval as an adjunct to diet and exercise for long-term weight management in 2021.
Semaglutide is prescribed for chronic weight loss to patients with a body mass index of 30 or greater (clinically obese) and to anyone considered overweight who has a weight-related condition, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. In a 68-week double-blind trial of nearly 2,000 obese adults without type 2 diabetes, half in the Semaglutide group lost at least 15% of their body weight, while almost a third lost 20% (those in the placebo growth lost less than 2.4%).
