WITH DR. KARLFELDT
Hormones play a major role in optimal health. As we age, our anti-aging, metabolic and reproductive hormones decline across the board. Lifestyle factors such as stress, diet, chronic illness, digestive issues and inflammatory conditions can accelerate the decline of life-affirming hormones and create a rapid aging environment.
But there is hope! Many anti-aging and hormone-boosting natural remedies exist. The Karlfeldt Center provides the very best and most effective anti-aging and hormone treatments.
Take control of your health, and start optimizing your well-being with our anti-aging and hormone treatments like Stem Cells, Peptides, and Planet Rich Plasma.
Peptide Therapy is an exciting, cutting-edge medical science that uses specific amino acid sequences called peptides. When properly administered, these signaling molecules communicate with different parts of the body to optimize regeneration, immune function, and hormonal balance. Some reduce inflammation and stimulate the production of human growth hormone, which has been shown to assist with weight loss by stimulating the breakdown of visceral fat, utilized in anti-aging therapies, or increased muscle mass. Patients with cancer, Lyme disease, autoimmune disease, and other chronic degenerative diseases may benefit from including peptides in their treatment regimen. Peptides are typically administered through the skin as a subcutaneous injection. They can also be applied in a cream, a nasal spray, or an oral form.
Peptides are now the number one method for Anti-aging and wellness. As we age, our essential amino acids and growth hormones start to decline, supporting physical decline. It works to stimulate the body’s natural production of growth hormones. They have the ability to correct the physical.
The physical chemistry to support proper tissue regeneration and a healthy hormonal system. This newly emerging science has the capability of slowing down the aging process, preventing illness, and enhancing peak performance.
To date, over 7,000 naturally occurring peptides have been identified. Peptide therapy, or the use of specific peptides in treatment, has gained great popularity in recent years. This is due largely to the fact that these are mostly naturally occurring in the body, highly specific (i.e., only do what you want them to do) while also being well-tolerated and safe.
Many patients with debilitating knee osteoarthritis find that treatment options are limited: steroid injections, joint replacement surgery (and replacement alternatives), physical therapy, etc. At the Karlfeldt Center, new cutting-edge treatment options like amniotic membrane stem cell injections may be used to successfully treat patients with knee osteoarthritis, Achilles tendinitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, and degenerative arthritis.
For clarification, this type of stem cell comes from the amniotic sac – not an embryo. While some people may have ethical issues with embryonic stem cell therapy, almost everyone agrees that the use of amniotic stem cell therapy raises no ethical or moral questions. Our amniotic stem cells are sourced from consenting donors (who have undergone a rigorous screening process) after the healthy baby is born.
Amniotic tissue is rich in biologically active factors which have many regenerative qualities, including anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, re-epithelialization, and anti-fibrotic properties. Amniotic stem cells, derived from the amniotic sac, can potentially become any of a variety of different cells. Blood, skin, and bone cells are all derived from amniotic cells. Together with the body’s already incredible ability to repair itself, stem cell treatments take advantage of this potentiality, going far beyond traditional “injection therapy.”
A qualified physician injects the amniotic tissues directly into the affected joint. We use ultrasound technology to pinpoint the exact location where the injection will be most effective. The anti-inflammatory properties of amniotic stem cells are similar to cortisone and steroid shots but naturally stimulate a response of the body’s own healing ability. The stem cells work to provide relief from pain in conjunction with hyaluronic acid, which eases pain and restores mobility by lubricating joints and tendons.
The standard treatment for osteoarthritis, tendinitis, and degenerative arthritis is typically cortisone or other drugs. These can provide short-term relief but do not allow the body to repair itself. Amniotic stem cells contain specific growth factors that may actually replace the damaged cells with healthy ones.
This therapy is extremely safe and effective. Benefits include:
Yes! More than 10,000 injections have been performed without a single reported adverse side effect.
Patients suffering from any kind of joint, tendon, or ligament pain may be considered as candidates for this type of therapy at the Karlfeldt Center. Some patients with severe degenerative osteoarthritis may not be eligible.
