Certification in Peptide Therapy

The cutting-edge Peptide Therapeutics market is rapidly expanding, and expected to surpass $25 billion by 2018. Highlighting a therapy that represents the future of Integrative Medicine, our newly designed, recently released Peptides Certification focuses on an integral therapy for those striving to optimize overall health.

Dr. James LaValle and Dr. William Seeds have collaborated on this Certification program, which highlights one of the most relevant and applicable therapies in Integrative Medicine. Used to bolster natural defenses against cancer cells and cell death, in addition to treating a host of age-related conditions and chronic inflammatory diseases, peptide therapy is dramatically changing lives for those seeking longevity and wellbeing.
