Article by Dr. Anup Kanodia
Functional Medicine Physician
At KanodiaMD, we believe that the quality of healing moves with the speed of science. That’s why we like to stay at the forefront of trends and treatments that are backed by research and creating amazing results with our patients.
Today, I’ll share with you four of our newest and most cutting-edge treatments that we offer here at KanodiaMD—some of which are not only effective, they’re actually regenerative! I’m so excited about these, because it will offer new ways to provide more rapid and successful healing in patients who really need it.
What Are Peptides?
Peptides are a form of regenerative cell therapy that are light years beyond what we’ve ever been able to offer to patients. These brand new peptide pills are a nutritional supplement that works on cell renewal and stimulation to delay the aging process. It also helps fight free radicals and oxidative stress in our body.
Your body needs a lot of supplies to run optimally—food, supplements, etc. These are the raw materials your body uses to fuel many, many processes that keep you running optimally. Peptides are what those raw materials create. When you’re able to give the body an already-made substance, it can use it much easier and MUCH more effectively. It’s like moving into a house that’s already built instead of starting from scratch with a piece of land, a hammer and nails!
What Are Some Benefits of Peptides?
- More energy & vitality
- Faster recovery for active people & competitive athletes
- Reduction of chronic joint pain
- Better quality sleep & rest
- Mood elevation
- Mental alertness & prevention of brain degenerative disease
- Lower glycemic & blood sugar levels
- Better sexual performance & satisfaction
- Slow down biological aging & more youthful complexion
Why Am I So Excited About Peptides?
Many conditions stem from the fact that things aren’t working properly in the body—whether there’s an injury, a condition has developed or we’re simply aging. Now we can actually repair and fix the body, restoring it for optimal performance.
Peptide Treatment Details:
These come in capsule form and can be obtained with dosage instructions through KanodiaMD. The typical costs can range from $350 – $700 per month. Please consult with Dr. Kanodia to determine if you’re a good candidate and what dosage is recommended.
What Are Postbiotics?
The world has been pretty focused on getting good amounts of prebiotics (fiber) and probiotics—and we should still be consuming these. The reason there has been so much attention on prebiotics and probiotics is because they fuel the good gut bacteria in order to help them produce postbiotics.
Postbiotics—a type of gut bacteria waste—are what we’re finding actually leads to all those great benefits of having a healthy microbiome. Now we have a way to get all that great postbiotic material—without asking our own gut bacteria to make it.
What Can Postbiotics Help Treat?
- Gut symptoms & digestion
- Leaky gut
- Food sensitivities
- Weakened immune system
- COVID prevention support
- Weight issues
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Cancer and chemotherapy
- Nervous system (stress, anxiety & depression)
Why Am I So Excited About Postbiotics?
The concept of postbiotics isn’t new, but the effectiveness of this new delivery method (capsule pill) is unrivaled! I’ve seen multiple patients rapidly improve their gastrointestinal conditions and have even seen those going through chemotherapy find amazing relief from symptoms. I believe this will be a common supplement people take in the near future.
Postbiotic Treatment Details:
These come in capsule pill form and can be obtained with dosage instructions through KanodiaMD. This particular postbiotic pill I found costs $625 for a 50-pill supply. Please consult with Dr. Kanodia to determine if you’re a good candidate and what dosage is recommended.
What Is Plaquex?
All of the cells in the body are continually absorbing nutrients and expelling toxins through the cell wall. With certain conditions and as we age, these cell walls become impenetrable, blocking vital nutrients and not allowing proper detoxification. Then we can have heart attacks, strokes, inflammation, stress, insulin resistance, accumulation of free radicals, toxins, heavy metals, hypertension—and the list goes on.
The “miracle molecule” in Plaquex IV treatment—Phosphatidylcholine (PC)— is the building block of all cell membranes. It rejuvenates cell membranes and optimizes their function, which in turn improves the function of the cell and ultimately the organ that the cell is part of (including the skin).
What Are The Benefits of Plaquex?
- Removes plaque buildup from the walls of your arteries
- Repairs damaged cell membranes
- Increases energy & sexual function
- Improves liver & kidney health
- Improves memory
- Promotes youthful-looking skin
Why I’m So Excited About Plaquex:
Plaquex is a way to help people heal who have not seen success thus far. Many of my patients struggle with issues of the gut and brain, and this has been able to provide them with more mental clarity and much improved digestion.
Plaquex Treatment Details:
We offer Plaquex IV therapy and pills at KanodiaMD. The IV cost ranges from $210 for a single infusion to $6,058 for a full 30-infusion treatment course. Contact the office for more info on Plaquex pills and IV therapy. Please consult with Dr. Kanodia to determine if you’re a good candidate and what dosage is recommended.
