Recently, a novel (new) coronavirus, COVID-19, began wreaking havoc on the world around us. In these uncertain times, you might be wondering if there’s anything you can do to help protect your body from the illness.
Thymosin therapy offered here at Balance Hormone Center is a proven way to strengthen your body’s immune response, thus helping you protect yourself from COVID-19 and other illnesses.
What Is Thymosin Alpha-1 Peptide Therapy?
Natural killer cells—NK cells, for short—are responsible for finding harmful cells in your body such as virus-infected cells. When they find them, they activate your immune system to fight off illnesses and infections. Just like many systems and cells in your body, NK cells wear down over time, decreasing your body’s ability to fight.
Thymosin alpha-1 or Ta1 is a peptide compound responsible for restoring your body’s immune function and regulating your immune response. It enhances your body’s NK cell system while stimulating stem cells and the production of new immune cells. As a result, your immune system is strengthened and begins fighting off viral infections found in your body.
Thymosin Therapy Is a Proven Treatment Against Disease
Currently, thymosin is a widely used therapy for the treatment of conditions such as chronic hepatitis and various forms of cancer. Clinical studies show that in 1,000 patients with various forms of cancer, Ta1 increased tumor response rates and survival as well as quality of life.
Thymosin therapy was also successful in increasing the efficiency of the vaccine used to kill H1N1 by provoking an enhanced immune response. Now, the injection is being used to combat the effects of damaged cells due to coronaviruses, including the new COVID-19.
Balance Hormone Center Can Help You Protect Your Immune System
The team at Balance Hormone Center wants nothing more than to help protect you and your family from illnesses such as COVID-19. If you have underlying health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease or if you’re immunocompromised, you are at higher risk for complications due to the virus.
Our Ta1 therapy can strengthen your immune system to help your body fight against coronaviruses and other illnesses. The therapy involves injecting Ta1 directly into your body via a syringe. Before any treatment, one of our physicians will discuss your options with you as well as any side effects, if applicable.
