Medically Managed Peptide Programs
Historically a realm of health optimization reserved for body builders and biohackers, peptide therapy has evolved from DIY, internet-options to a well-researched, safe, and effective way to address a multitude of diseases and health goals. BLI created the nation’s first Medically Managed Peptide Program (MMPP) in 2017 to provide our clients with a way to take advantage of the benefits of peptides in a way that is strategic and safe, guided by our providers’ unique expertise in peptide therapies.
What Is A Peptide?
Peptides are often thought of as “signaling agents” that can boss cells around by queuing certain actions or behaviors inside the body. A peptide is a short-chain of amino acids, which, together with other peptides, forms a protein. Because they work at the cellular level, peptides have the potential to fundamentally shift the paradigm of aging and disease. Peptides have been shown to impact everything from arthritis, neurodegenerative disease, diabetes, autoimmune dysfunction and nearly every ailment impacting the modern population.
What Are Peptides Used For?
Peptides are useful as a form of treatment for many conditions. Some peptides can encourage the production of growth hormone in the body, helping manage age-related issues and chronic inflammatory diseases. Some are impactful in the treatment of obesity or weight management, as they encourage the death of excess fat cells. One type of peptide is even known to encourage the production of melanin, decreasing the chances of skin cancer. Others can be therapeutic for an array of sexual dysfunctions.
Are Peptides Safe?
Though peptides are often thought of as a cutting-edge field of medicine,they have been well researched to be safe and effective (many peptides are even found in FDA-approved medications or as pharmaceutical options in other parts of the world). At BLI, we source our peptides from vetted compounding pharmacies all around the country. Unlike the peptides you can buy off the internet, every peptide we provide our clients is prescribed and filled by one of these established pharmacies.
The research on and availability of peptides is constantly evolving, and our providers spend hours researching, collaborating with other experts, and working directly with our pharmacy partners to understand the latest options and best protocols to fit your personal needs and goals.

Your Journey From Here
Stage 1: Assessment
BLI Assessments include your initial consult with your provider(s), a full panel of labs, and a follow-up lab review with your provider(s). Assessments are a one-time cost and usually are completed in 3-4 weeks.
1. Initial Consult with Your Provider
2. Labs Ordered & Shipped to You
3. Blood Drawn & Processed
4. Lab Review & Protocol Recommendation
What happens after your assesment?
Before you can receive any prescriptions (i.e. hormones, peptides) recommended by your provider, you must sign a formal program agreement, which will be sent electronically to your email.
This is necessary to cement the patient-provider relationship. You are under no obligation to continue on with a BLI program after your assessment. If you do move forward with BLI, you may move into whichever program type you want regardless of which assessment you completed.
Stage 2: Program
After your Assessment, you can continue on with a BLI program. Programs offer unlimited access to your provider, management and ordering of prescriptions, and access to our BLI Academy. Programs are run on the calendar year and prorated based on your start month. Payments can be made annually or monthly.
1. Receive Recommended Prescriptions

Hear What We Had to Say to Ken
Meet Ken, 65, doing ok, but more fatigued than he’d like to be.
Ken knows he needs to do something. He’s doing ok by the standards of other men in their 60s but he wants more than just ok.
Compared to his friends, Ken is doing pretty good. But he’s starting to feel the pressure from the up and coming 30 & 40 year old superstars at the office. Not to mention, he’s noticed some changes in his personal life, and he wouldn’t mind upping his game in the bedroom.
Ken is also starting to have headaches – probably from being overwhelmed by all of the information out there. He realizes he needs to make some changes now, but where to start?
Listen to what Dr. Yurth would recommend for Ken, a healthy male in his 60s.
Hear What We Had to Say to Zac
Meet Zac, 33, who can’t lose his edge.
Zac was an elite athlete in his 20s, and now in his 30s, he still competes while also working as a trainer.
At the end of the day, he doesn’t want the younger guys to see him limp off the field, fall behind at the gym, or simply be beat.
Keeping up is part of his job and livelihood. To stay on top and perform his best, he began to do some biohacking research, but he is unsure what’s safe and right for him.
Listen to what Dr. Yurth would tell Zac, a healthy 20-35 year old, while keeping it under the radar that he needs help.
