Welcome to another SDE AMA Episode!We are thrilled to be back with Dr. Seeds to answer your health questions that are tough to google.Here are the questions that we got through:Hi there. I am in the process of reading Peptide Protocols and have something that is causing me confusion. On several of the GHRPs the dosing looks like this, which seem like a HUGE amount. Can you clarify? Particularly CJC and IpamorelinQuestion : having 51 amino acids would put insulin in the category of a polypeptide instead of a peptide? . Btw , loved your book, super informative.Hi I’ve been watching your YouTube videos. My nephew has hyper-mobility Ehlers danlos that we didn’t know he had until last year. Age 26. We believe it came on strong after cipro and gadolinium toxicity. For the last year and a half he’s in chronic pain and can barely walk because of Achilles tendinitis. He has gotten no relief. He can is very complex. Has dr seeds seen and have successfully treated these things? Thank you. Desperately seeking answers.Hi Dr Seeds. I listened to your podcast about back pain and with the athlete with the neck problem, thanks it was very informative and gives me hope in healing my own injuries. Do you recommend any peptides for lumbar disc herniations? I have a problem at l5/S1.I understand these are more tricky to heal as they are avascular.Hi I wanted to ask about how BPC 157 works in terms not how it promotes angiogenesis/ the forming of new blood vessels. Is this effect systematic as in blood vessels are created everywhere in the body or just at the site of injury for example?Here's an interesting question: I've known women in my life who have suffered from heavy menstruations accompanied by chronically low iron, ringing in the ears etc, where iron supplementation does some to little benefit. I'm guessing that some or much of this could be due to a hormonal imbalance. Can peptide therapy ameliorate these issues?Medical Disclaimer: The medical treatments discussed in this channel are not intended for a diagnosis or prescription for viewers.

In this episode of SDE, we discuss why the microbiome is being studied for the future of advancing both peptide therapy and cellular medicine. It's a simple approach with extremely complex outcomes ranging the health spectrum.But what if we can start from that simple approach, and use that approach to guide the rest of our way?What if there was 1 place to start that could open up the doors for folks of all ages, no matter where they live in the world or their budget?Dr. Seeds explores the cellular medicine approach to the microbiome, and discusses that what if in detail, so that you can start this discussion with your own physician.Medical Disclaimer: The medical treatments discussed in this channel are not intended for a diagnosis or prescription for viewers.

The level of passion he brings to his craft, his trainees, and to himself is a rare sight."The brain is the greatest limiting factor" he explains while describing that hard work can actually be fun.He has helped rehabilitate athletes, has countless stories of overcoming career-ending injuries to come out the other side a more humble, hopeful, awe-inspiring being. Listen as he explains his system for training pro athletes, and how that system can apply to anyone looking for excellence in their craft. It's not "working out"... It's recharging .ANNOUNCEMENT: This Friday is Dr. Seeds' Performance Injury Repair/Recovery & Body Optimization Live Stream Course!

Eyesight is one of the most coveted senses that we often take for granted. Imagine-- living with eyesight until your college years, only to be told that that you have a rare condition that causes you to lose your vision progressively with no hope for a cure...That's what Victor Mifsud heard. It's hard to even imagine the impending doom of losing your vision. There are two ways to deal with it - don't, and fall into a deep depression; or do, and... Well that story is still being written.Victor did both. He fell into a depression, but came out the other side a stronger, wiser, more hopeful being. He is a voracious reader, researcher, and scientist in his own right. He decided he wasn't going to take "no cure" for an answer, and took his health into his own hands.What he's been able to accomplish has his vision doctors scratching their heads going 'how is this even possible'... You have to listen to his story. Or watch his documentary on Itunes - My Neuroplastic Adventurehttps://www.myneuroplasticadventure.com/Follow him on social @blindbiohackerJoin his vision summit:https://www.visionoptimizationsummit.com/

I was a big gym rat a few years ago and lost about 40lbs due to not being able to work out over the last few years. My goals are to be able to get back in the gym and calm my nervous system down. I’ve improved a ton over the last few years as I was have been bed ridden at times, but symptoms like fatigue, post exertional malaise, POTS symptoms and over active nervous system still linger to a lesser degree than before. Thymosin Beta-4 has gotten rid of my fibromyalgia symptoms about 95% which is amazing. TA-1 and BPC 157 have not been good for me even at low doses. Also tried nasal version of Selank and ARA-290 to no success. Anything else I could try?Question 2:Hello, I am interested in Epitalon for sleep primarily, telomeres, etc. I would love to hear any and all feedback.Question 3:Hi Dr seeds. I listened to your podcast about back pain and with the athlete with the neck problem, thanks it was very informative and gives me hope in healing my own injuries. Do you recommend any peptides for lumbar disc herniations?

Another week another AMA!MEDICAL DISCLAIMER: The content on this podcast is not intended to serve as a diagnosis or prescription for listeners, but rather for educational purposes only. Always consult with your physician before administering any of the therapies discussed here.Questions Answered:Question 1-Hi William I hope you are well, I use my sons Facebook sometimes, he has a serious neurological condition that head traumas are involved with, Lyme and mold exposure, anyways, we really need some serious help and was curious what your thoughts might be?  my sons brain and spine are “stuck on fire” he says, and he’s got muscle weakness, trouble swallowing speaking etc we don’t know what to do anymoreQuestion 2-If using GHK-cu for injury healing would there be any benefits to injection closer to the injury site like with BPC?Question 3-The general consensus among experts seems to be injecting local provides no additional benefit unless using ultrasound guided injections.But anecdotally I felt like local injections helped accelerate healing for nagging shoulder injury 🤷🏼‍♂️.Let’s ask the expert 😁.William SeedsQuestion 4 - Dr. Seeds talks of monitoring IGF-1 levels so I was wondering what initial labs are done before beginning peptides. Standard labs? Hormone levels? Inflammatory markers? I know this is not your area but is there a resource or mentor you can direct me to. Trying to find the resource I need to get educated and prepared to start prescribing these peptides.Question 5 - Have you seen or heard about this. Not one Doc so far has a clue about these Domination spots(I call them) that appeared on my back Jan 2017. When I garden, i have to spray white vinegar on my back change top, or hop in pool and soap down or they get a red circle around the brown they get angry. They were faded again, but if I'm around any toxin mold or get over heated/hot (and I am in Florida ha), they flareup. I'm think it has to be mast cell reaction from over stimulating the immune system & flaring up inflammation if I over push my energy envelope.. Eboo Blood cleaning stopped that for 7 months bc the brown circles/spots. Very attractive. LOL. It itches if I get hot or sweaty. I think once I can get the viral load down some and inflammation. Then things might calm down and reset. , Very Grateful! One final time for our lawyers:MEDICAL DISCLAIMER: The content on this podcast is not intended to serve as a diagnosis or prescription for listeners, but rather for educational purposes only.

This episode is a tough story about a close friend of ours, who injured his back in his early twenty's, never recovered, dealt with chronic back pain through most of his post-college life, and what happened when he did something about it.These stories sound too good to be true. It seems as if we've been programed to think that medical recoveries are:1. TAKE A LONG TIME2. TAKE A LOT OF PAIN3. Recovery is temporary...This may be true for temporary bandaid fixes like asprin or other treatments, but it's not the only solution.If you're dealing with chronic pain, you're not alone. It's getting in the way of you life, your loved ones, and likely your career. Here's one story where that won't ever be the case again.Email info[at]seeds[dot]md for any questions.
In this episode we interview one of Dr. Seeds long-time friend and patient - Former olympic gold medal swimmer turned super mom, Diana Munz.Her story is one that many mom's might struggle with-- having no time to stop because her kids always come first. But when an accident happened that left her unable to move her neck without zaps of pain shooting down her spine, Diana knew she had to nip this in the bud.This is just one story of a former athlete who was used to working through the pain, realized she no longer has to do that, and make the leap to do something about it.What a great story for moms and athletes. Have any questions for Dr. Seeds or for Diana Munz?

Autism is a growing concern among parents with developing children. The causes have been studied closely in the last decade, and when correlated with the recent literature, the theories are quite fascinating.The innate immune system has such a profound effect on the human healthspan, we can't help but urge listeners to re-visit the the first episode where Dr. Seeds breaks down the true importance of the immune system-- how it goes beyond the defense of a cold.We'll definitely be revisiting this topic. Send any questions to info[at]seeds[dot]md. Follow Dr. Seeds' work on https://seeds.md
Dr. Seeds is quite active all over the web - youtube, peptide groups, reddit, and of course, our own emails answering questions about peptide therapy, to providing information to  health issues that have no clear cut answers.There was no way to organize this into topical episodes so we made an Ask Me Anything episode instead.Here we answer the following questions:What kinds of things do you recommend for the folks on the west coast dealing with poor air quality from the wildfires?What kinds of peptide therapies for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome?How about adrenal fatigue, what's your recommendation and stance?Not feeling the effects of Dihexa, what do you recommend?Will ARA-290 increase COVID-19 risk due to decreased cytokines IL6, and IL-12?Any recommendations for atrial fibrillation?I wish we had more time, but we promise to do another one of these episodes. It was fascinating to listen to the approach of Dr. Seeds when dealing with each of these issues.Keep your questions coming, and let's prioritize your health at the top of your list!
