Functional medicine providers know that human growth hormone (HGH) is highly beneficial as part of a treatment plan for people suffering the myriad troubles of hormone imbalance. Increased HGH can result in benefits across nearly every system in the body. However, HGH therapy may be prohibitively expensive and restrictive. The solution? Many functional medicine providers (YM’s staff included) use a different hormone, sermorelin, to stimulate the body’s natural production of HGH.
Sermorelin and its partner peptide- GHRH and GHRP- are safe and inexpensive, and available in both injectable and oral form. Both are bioidentical hormone peptides and work together to stimulate the production of HGH in the pituitary gland.
What Can You Expect with GHRH Therapy?
Increased levels of HGH brought on by GHRH comes with a raft of short and long term positive health outcomes. These include better bone and mineral density, improvements to the immune system, more energy and focus, cardiovascular benefits, sharper cognition and memory, improved ability to burn fat and build muscle, and a higher libido.
Within the first eight weeks on GHRH/GHRP, patients are likely to experience the following benefits, in roughly this order:
- Improved sleep quality and circadian rhythm
- Better recovery after physical exertion and exercise
- Mental clarity, including better memory and feeling generally “sharper”
- Increased skin elasticity
- Improved body composition resulting from better sleep, better recovery from exertion (which makes exercise easier, more appealing, and more effective), and better fat burning and muscle building
Functional medicine providers see patients suffering from poor health and quality of life, and rather than merely treating their symptoms, they seek to engineer wholistic solutions from within the body. That’s exactly what sermorelin peptide (GHRH) therapy does. It is a cost-effective and flexible solution to a number of problems that affect both quality of life and long-term health outcomes.
