If you’ve reached a certain age, you may already be aware of how unkind time can be to your body and appearance. Aging brings forth many less than desirable and inevitable changes to your overall health, such as lower energy and fatigue, a slower metabolism, increased body fat, decreased muscle mass, a lower libido, aging skin and more. While all of these symptoms are merely a natural result of getting older, they can also be caused by declining hormone production within the body.
Each hormone in your body plays a vital role in nearly every major bodily function, including your body’s growth. Aging, as well as naturally declining hormone levels, are associated with many unfavorable aging symptoms and health conditions. As a result, anti-aging specialists such as those at Body Symmetry MD have been utilizing Human Growth Hormone (HGH) Peptide therapy to help reverse and slow the onset of aging symptoms and restore the bodily deterioration that accompanies aging with great success.
What Is Human Growth Hormone (HGH)?
While many glands within your body work to produce different hormones, the pea-sized pituitary gland located at the base of your brain directly below the hypothalamus is often considered to be the “master control gland”. This is largely in part due to the pituitary gland’s role in controlling the other glands hormone production within your body, as well as for producing and the hormone responsible for your growth, or HGH. During childhood and adolescence, the HGH levels produced and secreted at their highest levels to help promote healthy growth and development. As you get older, however, it is normal for these levels to decline with age when you have finished developing.
It is estimated that by the time an individual reaches middle-age, usually around the age of 40, both men and women alike will be producing about half of the HGH levels they created at the age of 20 or young adulthood. Your pituitary gland produces and releases HGH into your bloodstream while you are in the deep stages of sleep and works to bind to specific cell receptors throughout your body. HGH binds to receptors in the regions of the brain responsible for learning and memory as well as fat cells to help them release their contents and convert into energy. HGH also works to stimulate the liver to produce a powerful hormone known as insulin-like growth factor 1 or IGF-1. IGF-1 is responsible for promoting the growth of bone, cartilage and lean muscle mass in your body.
Who Can Benefit From HGH Peptide Therapy?
With so many functions in the body relying on HGH, even a small amount is critical for your body’s maintenance and wellbeing. However, even minuscule changes brought on by aging and declining HGH levels can have adverse effects on how well your body functions along with your overall quality of life. An HGH deficiency or declining levels in adults can contribute to the following unwanted symptoms as you get older:
Reduced cognitive function
Poor moods, anxiety or depression
Increased fat around the waist or midsection
Decreased lean muscle mass
Fatigue or low energy
Fine lines and wrinkles
Brittle skin and nails
If you are experiencing any of these unwanted symptoms of aging and you are over the age of 40, HGH peptide therapy may be beneficial in helping to reverse signs of aging and allow you to feel like a younger version of yourself once again. By carefully analyzing your blood results, health history and personal goals, our physician-guided staff at Body Symmetry MD will help you determine if you are deficient in HGH and whether HGH peptide therapy can help you reach your personal goals.
What Results Can I Expect From HGH Peptide Therapy?
In adults, supplementing with HGH peptide therapy on a routine basis can aid in stimulating your pituitary gland to produce increased amounts of HGH naturally. By restoring your HGH levels to more optimal levels, patients will usually begin to experience improvements to signs of aging in as little as three to six months. While the results of HGH peptide therapy will vary from patient to patient, overall improvements from HGH therapy can increase upon longer or more extended periods of use. Some of the results observed from regular HGH peptide therapy injections can include:
Elimination of fatigue
Boosted energy and motivation levels
Improved workout performance
Shorter recovery times post-workout
Improved muscle tone and muscle mass
Decreased body fat
Stronger skin and nails
Increased sex drive or libido
Increased endurance and strength
More balanced and improved moods
Better sleep quality
It is essential for patients who undergo HGH peptide therapy to incorporate the treatment into an overall healthy lifestyle for the best results. Getting plenty of sleep, eating a healthy and balanced diet as well as exercising regularly are also crucial elements to a hormone deficiency treatment plan. At Body Symmetry MD we are passionate about comprehensive wellness and will work with you to design an effective growth hormone therapy plan to get you feeling like your best self.
IGF-1 is a hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin that is produced in the liver. While IGF-1 plays an essential role in childhood and adolescent development, it continues to have constructive metabolic effects well into adulthood. IGF-1 is primarily responsible for promoting bone and muscle growth and strength. Lower than optimal levels of IGF-1 can be an indicator of a sluggish pituitary gland, which may contribute to a host of problems such as:
Difficulty maintaining lean muscle mass
Excess body fat
Poor sleep quality
Sagging skin, fine line and wrinkles
Poor bone density
Weakened immune system
Low energy or fatigue
In addition to utilizing HGH peptide therapy to help encourage the body to stimulate the production of IGF-1, our solutions to a specific IGF-1 deficiency at Body Symmetry MD in most cases can include the following medications for your therapy:
Sermorelin with GHRP-2
Sermorelin with GHRP-6
Sermorelin with GHRP-2 & GHRP-6
What Results Can I Expect From IGF-1 Therapy?
While the results of IGF-1 therapy can vary from patient to patient, overall improvements from IGF-1 treatment can increase upon longer or more extended periods of use. Some of the results observed from regular IGF-1 therapy injections can include:
Increased lean muscle mass
Reduced body fat
Improved sleep quality
Increased skin density and collagen production
Improved bone density
Enhanced immune system and cardiovascular function
Improved pancreatic and liver function
Increased energy and vitality
Optimal levels of HGH and IGF-1 are a sign of good health and vitality, but even a slight drop in hormone levels can have adverse effects on bodily functions and age you faster.

One of the foundation principles of chiropractic is the study of health—what makes people live better and longer. We’re about finding issues before they become issues.
With Body Symmetry, we can add an entire different protocol of health. We can address their entire human system. We can cure them by individual care. Body Symmetry gives us great systems that lets us help our patients like never before.
Does it elevate our level of care? Absolutely. We have patients coming in with chronic conditions—arthritis, psoriasis, losing their hair. Before, we could only change their diet. Now we can give them peptides that slowly tell your body what to do. Then patients become more interested and involved in their own care.
For 19 years, what brought people to us because of pain or discomfort. Now they come because they want to change their lives. It’s a simple thing. We work with every patient individually. We help YOU connect the dots.
If you have anxiety or depression, you go get medication and it balances it chemically and nobody has a problem with that. There’s always a cliché about men taking hormones. I don’t take testosterone to get big. I take it because I want to be healthy. Physically and mentally, I’m 20 years younger than I am by age.
Any team is only as good as its weakest link. When you come to Body Symmetry, there is no weak link. They’re an awesome team. They’re going to give you a push to help you get better.
Dr. George Brenau
We believe the body heals itself, and when you give it the best opportunity, it heals better.
We have more tools to utilizes with patience, like peptides for healing and weight loss. It works better with what we do.
As females age, they go to doctors to address hormones. Men don’t, and that’s one of the things we address.
With the detox we do, we address people’s diets and inflammation. Inflammation just destroys your body. Taking that out, addressing food issues, people lose weight and are in a better state of healing, not just with chiropractic but with life in general.
We address more than just chiropractic. We address the whole individual and issues that affect your whole well-being. We’re able to address more issues and help more people.
People come here because they’re hearing results from other people. If that’s your goal and you want to help people, they’ll tell other people.
People come to Body Symmetry for weight loss, hormone therapy, anti-aging, and just feeling better.
Dr. Eric Zigler
I chose Body Symmetry and it was very life changing. I have more energy. I have better health. I dropped 87 pounds. I feel better than did when I was 20. It saved my life, really.
People see the change in me and they want it. We have a whole mess of people coming now.
The individualize medicine I take is great. I don’t need a cup of coffee in the morning. I’m ready to go. Chad taught me how to do it, and after doing it myself, there’s nothing to it.
When people see a picture of me before and one of me now, they want that, too.
