Peptide Therapy

Charleston, SC

Therapeutic Peptide Protocols to promote healing and longevity.

Peptides were not created in a lab, they were discovered inside of the human body – In fact, over 7000 different peptide chains have been found so far. With their therapeutic promise and excellent safety profiles, we believe peptides are the future of medicine – Move over big pharma!

Give Your Body What It Needs

What Is Peptide Therapy?

Peptides are short chains of strategically sequenced amino acids that serve as messenger molecules to prompt specific physiologic functions in the body. As we decode their unique sequences and identify the metabolic instructions they carry, we have been able to recreate them for therapeutic use. Thus, peptides are a way of using the body’s own brilliance to promote healing and optimal performance as we age!

Peptides are being used as powerful treatments for a variety of conditions including dementia, Parkinsonism, cancers, muscle and connective tissue injuries, autoimmune diseases, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and TBI. One type of peptide is even known to encourage the production of melanin, reducing one’s risk of developing skin cancer. Others can be neuroprotective and even reverse neurocognitive deficits and rebuild synapses.

Although the therapeutic use of peptides is considered a new and cutting-edge field of medicine, they are well researched and considered very safe. Peptides were not developed in a lab, rather they were discovered within the human body at the cellular level. We have been able to identify more than 7,000 peptides produced naturally by our bodies, but only a small percentage of those have been FDA approved for therapeutic use in humans.

The source matters! As the popularity of weight loss peptides has exploded, there are far too many wellness practitioners marketing and selling research grade peptides that are explicitly not intended for human use. The peptides that Dr. Kimbi uses for her patient specific medical protocols are prescription grade and ordered through trustworthy, licensed, and vetted compounding pharmacies around the country.

The cost of peptide therapy depends on many factors including your personal goals, priorities, health needs and budget. A basic, one-peptide protocol may be anywhere from $200 to $500 per month. For more involved protocols with multiple peptides, a treatment plan, or “stack,” may be upwards of $2,000 monthly. Dr. Kimbi will work with you to prioritize health concerns and select peptides that will provide the broadest impact, while respecting your budget.

In many cases, benefits will be experienced gradually, with optimal health outcomes in three to six months. Some peptides can facilitate dramatic results within days or weeks. It is important to note that when considering peptide therapy protocols, there is no one size fits all solution, and slow and steady generally wins the race! Dr. Kimbi will help design the perfect protocol for you and provide continued support regardless of how long it may take.

Peptide Patient Testimonials

“I have struggled with PCOS symptoms my entire life. My weight had gotten out of control, and I hadn’t had a normal period in 5 years. I started peptide therapy with Dr. Kimbi in April of 2023 to help lose some weight for my upcoming wedding, and I could have never dreamed of the results that I have seen. I since then have lost 16 pounds, maintained that weight loss, and my periods have returned in full force! I finally feel confident and happy in this body, feel a huge difference in the balance of my hormones, and ultimately finally feel in control of my body and wellness.”
