Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy) Therapy
The Carragher Method utilizes semaglutide, a peptide receptor agonist, in its treatment protocols for Prediabetes/Diabetes and for weight loss. Semaglutide works to inhibit glucagon secretion which stimulates insulin secretion. This helps manage insulin levels and reduces appetite. High insulin is associated with virtually every chronic degenerative disease of aging. And for many, weight loss is key to their overall health and well-being.

What are Semaglutide Peptide Injections?
Semaglutide is a therapeutic peptide receptor agonist (meaning it attaches to a peptide receptor on your cell surface) indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with Type 2 diabetes mellitus, high insulin levels, prediabetes, and who are overweight.
Semaglutide was initially approved for individuals with Type 2 diabetes mellitus to improve blood sugar management. It has now been given the green light to be used for weight loss, and in this case, obesity control.
The most common semaglutide brand name injections are Ozempic and Wegovy.
How Semaglutide (Ozempic and Wegovy) are used for Anti-Aging Effects
As you age, your body tends to produce more insulin, which is related to an increase in hunger and a decrease in metabolism. This can contribute to weight gain and obesity-related medical disorders like Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. Hyperinsulinemia (high insulin) is associated with virtually every chronic degenerative disease of aging.
And because Ozempic and Wegovy are glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, they work to reduce hunger and appetite, increase metabolism, and regulate insulin production by the pancreas. This can result in much-needed weight loss for overweight patients who may be doing everything else possible to control their weight.
