Learn the latest and best Natural Peyronie’s treatment

All Peyronie’s disease treatment is controversial, to say the least. Even standard medical treatment for Peyronie’s disease is filled with argument. This section will present an array of Peyronie’s natural treatment options unlike the conventional use of Peyronie’s medication, recognizing that there is controversy in regard to all forms of Peyronie’s treatments.

The Peyronie’s disease treatment ideas presented throughout the PDI website have been reached in the following manner: Peyronie's disease can stress couples who must deal with penile curvature. Peyronie's disease treatment must attempt to increase the man's ability to heal the Peyronie's plaque.

1. Distillation and interpretation of opinions and data found in hundreds of medical research studies and ongoing technical data from the scientific community, as found in the footnotes at the conclusion of each of the Peyronie’s disease treatment subheadings.

2.  When Dr. Herazy developed his own Peyronie’s disease problem in 2002 he was practicing with at the famed Pioneer Medical Clinic, of Arlington Heights, IL.  In that clinic were three medical doctors who had a combined clinical experience of 90 years in practice, along with their knowledge of the practice of medicine and the therapeutic use of natural Complementary Medicine they used to treat a wide variety of health problems.   He worked with those three MDs to eventually create a treatment approach that is the foundation of what is now called the PDI treatment method for Peyronie’s disease, which is nothing more than an attempt to support and encourage a better healing response of the immune system against the foreign fibrous tissue of Peyronie’s disease.

3. Observations and personal experience of Dr. Herazy who treated his own Peyronie’s disease problem while using these same Peyronie’s natural treatment principles, as well as his personal use of these very same products and Peyronies treatments detailed in this website.  Dr. Herazy was successful treating his severe case of Peyronie’s disease, and presents on this website what he learned from his valuable experience.

4. Experience and direct feedback given to Dr. Herazy from thousands of individual men and women who have successfully used the Peyronie’s treatment principles found on this website. This valuable information is retrieved from many dozens of telephone and email discussions each month since 2002, in which issues of progress and lack of progress, modifications of Peyronie’s disease treatment protocols are worked out on an individual basis, and unique suggestions and successful strategies are collected and cataloged from these suffering men and women from around the world.

5. Analysis and application of information derived from PDI’s ongoing four-year survey questionnaire project, voluntarily provided by approximately 800 men who have Peyronie’s disease, and have undergone various Peyronie’s treatments, both traditional medicinal and surgical and non-traditional forms.

For a tongue-in-cheek comparison of the standard medical Peyronie’s disease treatment in its early stages to the aggressive Peyronie’s natural treatment theory of PDI, click Peyronie’s Disease Treatment and the Man Whose House is on Fire. As you read this essay you will come to understand the philosophy and theory behind PDI’s recommendation to treat both the acute and chronic stages of PD with aggressive multiple Peyronie’s natural treatment measures.

Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Unlike Any Other on the Internet

PDI recommends the active, aggressive, synergistic use of multiple Peyronie’s disease natural treatment in the acute and chronic stages of PD. The purpose of this intense therapeutic approach is to support the maximum healing potential of the scar tissue by supplying a wide base of nutrients that might increase metabolic activity in the body. PDI philosophy recommends supporting the healthy function of local tissue in both specific and general ways so the body is given the best possible opportunity to repair and regenerate – to the best of its ability.

Applying common sense and generally available knowledge about health and healing improves your chance to come out as a winner.  All Peyronie’s treatment plans found on this web site can be modified, by subtracting or adding, to suit your personal Peyronie’s disease treatment philosophy.

One of the important elements of a good treatment strategy is to do a variety of Peyronies disease exercises along with using vitamins, minerals, enzymes and herbs to support your natural recovery.

Give your Peyronie’s treatment plan at least several months of concentrated commitment; it is does not work for you, you can have Peyronie’s disease surgery knowing you at least tried your best.

“Proof” of Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

Everyone wants proof these day. Yes, in modern society drugs and medical technology with the greatest profit potential are researched most and are pushed hardest in the marketplace. Even though a particular treatment for Peyronie’s disease treatment might help people, unless there is strong economic motivation to find “proof” that it works, few drug companies are motivated to invest in it.

A low profit therapy (vitamin, enzyme, homeopathy) is generally ignored by the medical establishment for reason of simple economics. You can see why a possible home treatment for Peyronie’s disease would not be endorsed without a profit motive. Often, these simple remedies are labeled “unproven” not necessarily because they do not work, but simply because no one wants to spend the time, effort and money to scientifically prove their effectiveness. A good low-profit treatment can stay untested, ignored actually, and therefore remain “unproven”.

Even when a certain Peyronie’s natural treatment has “proven” value and effectiveness, this positive or favorable verdict is sometimes only temporary. You must wonder about the actual value of scientific proof and approval for a drug or procedure, when so often they are later found to be ineffective and/or dangerous. (The reader has only to consider the recent removal of Vioxx and Celebrex from the marketplace, after being prescribed millions of times before being withdrawn.)  Many times a new medical procedure or medication is put in the market with great ballyhoo after it performs well in research testing one year, and pulled off the market with lawsuits about deadly side-effects and poor clinical results the next year. So much for the unshakable and solid value of scientific research, extensive testing, medical acceptance and “proof”.

When the medical establishment and FDA attempted to improve the American diet (fat out, protein in) to reduce obesity and heart disease, they pressured the fast food industry for compliance. In response, the fast food industry simply stated, “There is insufficient scientific proof to link a low fat/high protein diet to reduction of obesity and heart disease.” They did not say that less fat and more protein did not result in weight loss and less heart disease, they simply said that it had not been scientifically “proven”. Most agree it is logical for a low fat/high protein to be beneficial to health, yet it was “not adequately proven” and for this reason the request could be ignored. Only after the American consumer demanded less fatty food and fewer empty calories, and created a financial incentive to decrease fat and increase protein, did the fast food industry respond by offering an improved menu for the public.

With all of this in mind, “proof” that a therapy works should be put in perspective.

PDI Natural Peyronie’s Treatment Not Mainstream

Our theories for using aggressive and multiple Peyronie’s treatments are not yet proven, and are not within standard or accepted medical practice. We feel the ideas we submit these ideas here for your consideration since the pose the potential for improvement of PD.  You should only consider using this information with your doctors approval and cooperation since it is currently outside the current standard of care.

Understand why Alternative Medicine treatment of Peyronie’s disease is not accepted by traditional medical practice, click  Science is Slow.

Traditional medicine, with no accepted Peyronie’s medication, offers surgery as the only cure. PDI is not against surgery in cases that have been non-responsive to adequate use of multiple conservative care. However, too many men rush into surgery believing that is an easy and sure solution to a big problem. Each surgical candidate should remember these three things:

1. Surgery will not restore the penis to its original length.
2. After surgery hardened scar usually shortens the penis, often by 1-2 inches, a side-effect that no man views casually. 3. There is no guarantee that additional scarring and worsening of Peyronie’s disease might occur at the site of surgery.

Yet, there are many non-drug options from a large body of medical research that documents positive, but inconclusive and sometimes variable, reports of success. Changes that might occur in the body after Peyronie’s disease natural treatment tends to be subtle and slow, since their purpose is only to support or encourage a normal process of nature that is reduced or absent. Changes made in the body by drugs or surgery are aggressive, since their purpose is to force or create a change based on the intent of the physician.

Our Peyronie’s disease treatment theory is that the potential benefits of these subtle natural therapies are enhanced and multiplied by simply using several alternative therapies at the same time – known to science as synergy. It is easy to understand – at lest for most laypeople – that a single natural therapy will not work as well as aggressive multiple therapies; like “ganging up” on the problem.

One child cannot lift a grown man; five or six children can do it with ease. It is our opinion that it is safe and reasonable to attempt to improve the eventual outcome of PD by faithfully and aggressively using several conservative treatments that are based on research science and common sense. We strongly suggest that the man with PD works with what is known and what is available – even if it is not perfect – rather than passively behaving like a PD victim.

Peyronie’s Treatment Strategy

Better to do all that you can for your Peyronie’s disease, as soon as you can, using a diverse combination of safe and scientifically grounded natural options that are known to have occasional success when used individually to support healing of the Peyronies scar. If after following an aggressive alternative medical program there is less than complete repair and healing, as can and does happen, then surgery can still be used.

There is no acceptable medical explanation to answer certain observations about Peyronie’s disease. The thoughtful reader should think long and hard about this:

1. Peyronie’s disease has been called a “nightmare to treat”; it’s like trying to hit a moving target while being blindfolded. During the acute inflammatory phase when there is active scar remodeling going on, the scars seem to change daily, or even hourly; sometimes the scar is better, sometimes worse, for no apparent reason. The wildly variable characteristics of PD lead to frustration for both patient and doctor.

2. Younger men recover from Peyronie’s disease more often than older men, but not always.

3. Some men get well – completely recover – without any Peyronie’s disease treatment. Other men get worse while under drug treatment.

4. Some research studies of drug and non-drug therapies report very good results, while other studies using these same drugs or non-drugs get nearly the opposite result.

About 1., above, consider: The scar does not have the man, the man has the scar. The man who has that scar is changing internally all the time; everyone changes in minor and major ways from moment to moment for a whole universe of reasons, and frequent changes of the PD scar are a reflection of those larger changes. If the scar is better one day, that’s good. If it gets worse the next day, that’s bad. What if we could just figure out what is going on with the man when his scar is good, and keep him that way? If we knew, or just suspected, what is going on with the man when the scar is good, and were able to continue that state or condition, then maybe the scar would continue to remain good and heal as in does in half of the cases.

About 2., above − concerning the different healing response from younger and older men. At the risk of over-generalization, one of the primary differences between younger and older men is the younger man tends to possess a greater degree of what is known as “health”. Sure there are some sickly 30 year-old men, and some fantastically healthy 70 year-old men, but for the most part, younger men are healthier than older men − their parts work better, they repair better, they don’t sag, they have more stamina and energy, they don’t hurt as much, they haven’t been cut on as much, they don’t have as much wear and tear, etc. If we could do a few things to a man to help him work better, get him healthier, figure out how he got “weak” in such a way that he did not heal the scar in the tunica albuginea in the first place, maybe he could shake off his PD like the younger man does. It would be a rare 50-60 year-old man whose health could not benefit from a change of diet, exercise and a few other things. PDI offers a wide and interesting list of ideas about how that might be done. This is the direction PDI suggests you consider the care of your PD.

About 3., above — some men get better without care, and some get worse with care. There is the possibility that the medical treatment has nothing to do with what is wrong with the man – they just could be going in the wrong direction. Read the medical websites and you will see that medical treatment tends to treat the scar and ignore the man. PDI has taken a different approach – treat the man as a whole and consider that the actual problem lies within the man who has the scar.

About 4., above − concerning research studies that do not agree. We think this observation has several different aspects:

1. Every person is different. Treatment of PD should be directed more to the man who has the scar, than to the scar itself. If you are dealing with a different mix of individuals with only one treatment approach, you should expect to get variable results. Better to have different treatment methods to use in unique circumstances.
2. There is no way to know about the quality or quantity of vitamins, minerals, or enzymes that are used in PD research. Not all vitamin E is created equal, and the same can be said for other substances that are frequently researched to treat PD.Variable research results can be explained by variable quality and quantity of these substances. This alone can explain variable research results.
3. The recommendations for our products are based on the best information and products of which we are aware. More is explained about quality and quantity issues in the individual sections to which these issues apply.

Peyronie’s Treatment According to PDI – an Explanation

PDI’s theory is simply that medicine could be approaching the problem of Peyronie’s disease from the wrong direction. We believe it is better to direct treatment to the man who has the scar. The scar is essentially the same in each case of Peyronie’s disease, with little variation, compared to the extreme variation of unique personal chemistry and physiology of each individual man.  Using therapies directed to the tissue, we are trying to treat the man and not the symptoms.   If we focus to the man, and not exclusively to the scar, we are then more likely to address the crux of the real problem of Peyronie’s disease. If that sounds too simple, too obvious, so be it.

We believe that with this small but fundamental shift in thinking, successful treatment becomes possible. Our statistics indicate that we get better results with our Peyronie’s natural treatment that is directed to improvement or promotion of that general quality called “health”. What each man needs in order to improve his health is different from man to man. Therefore, our idea is to customize all Peyronie’s treatment to the needs of the individual, rather than just treating a scar.

Basics of PDI Peyronie’s Natural Treatment Plan

Now that you understand the basis of how I approach the Peyronie’s disease scar, here are the mechanics of how we suggest you go about planning your own treatment program with your medical doctor.

1. Read through the description of each therapy offered in this section.

2. Make notes about those therapies that address particular issues that apply to you personally. See if you can recognize yourself in some of these discussions; they could be good additions to your program. As an example, if you have digestive complaints you might consider use of systemic enzymes.

3. Attempt to get one or two treatments from different therapeutic areas. One or two from the antioxidant group, one or two therapies from the enzyme group, one or two therapies from the physical group (DMSO), one or two therapies from the energy group. If you do this, you are then spreading out your therapies to a broad base of support for your body.

4. There are some treatments that are very broad base and have wide application to most everyone who has Peyronie’s disease. As an example, vitamins E and C, and the massage and exercise program are usually thought of as good for most everyone with Peyronie’s disease.

5. Read though the list you are putting together and see if it makes sense to you. Discuss your ideas with your personal doctor prior to starting the Alternative Medicine treatment plan you choose; keep him/her informed to assure you are on the right track. Make a firm commitment to doing all of the things you set out to do, and then just do it.

Peyronie’s Treatment Fundamentals

Our opinion concerning Peyronie’s disease treatment is to do all that you can, as soon as you can, using as many of the safe and scientifically grounded options that are known to have some success in assisting your ability to heal and repair the Peyronie’s disease plaque.  If after following an aggressive and scientifically based alternative medical program there is less than complete repair and healing, as can happen, then surgery can still be used.

How to Explain Natural Peyronie’s Treatment to Your Medical Doctor

Keep this in mind when speaking to your doctor:

1. Doctors generally want to do what they are convinced is best for their patients, but they are slow to change their thinking and often need to be educated about anything new and different.
2. Doctors are busy and do not like to waste time.
3. Doctors will not participate in anything they do not understand or do not agree with.
4. Doctors will not participate in anything that can give them problems later.

Here Are Some Suggestions How to Talk to Your Doctor:

1. Get to the point and keep it there. Don’t waste his/her time, and he/she will probably give you more of it.

2. Have a print-out ready from the treatment area of this website that explains what it is you want to do. Give it to your doctor to look over.

3. Say something like this, “I want to do more to help myself. I have read some things about alternative and complimentary treatment of PD that are used by medical doctors from all over the world. I know there is a lot of controversy about treatment, so I want to know what you think. I know that there is no perfect agreement about the results of using some of these things, but I would like to try it anyway. These treatments are not perfect, but then no treatment has been found perfect for Peyronie’s disease. Other doctors think these therapies show statistical promise, as you can see. What do you think?”

4. Listen carefully to what your doctor says about your ideas. If your doctor has a reasonable and open mind, as you would hope, you will not be brushed aside. If you are brushed aside, ignored, or treated badly, you will have to determine how to respond. Weigh very carefully what is told to you by your doctor, and then make up your mind how you wish to proceed.

Suggestion to Create your Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Plan:

1. Be aggressive. Overwhelm the problem, support your health in a broad area.

2. Diversify. Use both internal and some external therapies. From the internal options, consider some nutritional and some enzyme therapies. Mix it up.

3. Read and learn about the various therapies. Understand why each is important.

4. Consider what you know about yourself. Select options based on you personally.

5. Discuss your ideas with your doctor.

    I have gone through a lot of case history and suggestion on Peyronie’s disease. No exact medicine I found for this PD. So would you kindly tell me the exact medicine of Peyronie’s disease and sources of collection. I will be very happy if mail in my address,

  2. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Sarder,

    All you have to do is to look over the PDI site for all the possible information you need about Peyronie’s disease treatment. Just look at what is in front of you. TRH

  3. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Barry,

    We do not have a cure for Peyronie’s disease. We are in the process of learning the best way to help the body heal Peyronie’s disease using natural Alt Med products. I have done this work since 2002 after my own Peyronie’s disease went away while using Alt Med, and a lot of other men have had success as well – from minor to major improvements. There are still too many open questions how this process works or if it is possible to streamline the procedures in some way. PDI has done five different research projects related to Alt Med ideas during this time, using volunteers via long distance. This is not the kind of work the medical establishment is looking for. But, personally, I am only concerned about seeing if there is anything I can do to help guys with Peyronie’s disease get over their problems; formal research can come later. Those men who no longer are dealing with the misery of Peyronie’s disease are happy I have taken this route.

    Currently we are suggesting a very generalized approach with a large number of therapy items, while asking our men to monitor the response of the Peyronie’s disease fibrous material to see what dosage levels the body requires in each case to reduce the size, shape, density and surface features of the PD scar tissue. Most of the various therapies we use have been subjected to formal testing as solo therapy items in published medical research (vitamin E, vitamin C, L-arginine, PABA, acetyl-L-carnitine, coenzyme Q10, etc.) and have been earned mixed results to poor results when used as individual therapy items. By this I mean that medical research tests vitamin E by itself to see if vitamin E reduces Peyronie’s disease; they test acetyl-L-carnitine by itself to see if it reduces Peyronie’s disease, etc. This is how medical research is done. They are trying to determine if these vitamins have a drug-like effect on the PD scar tissue; and of course the answer is “no.” Vitamins are not drugs and do not work as dramatically or as forcefully as drugs; they work with the various processes of the body to help the body heal if it is possible. The difference with what PDI is doing is that we never use these therapy items as solo or isolated therapy items (like they were drugs); the difference with our approach with these same therapy items is that we use them in large combinations so that they are presented to the body in a more natural way as nutrients are taken into the body so the body has a boost of nutrients of these vitamins, minerals and enzymes that the medical profession has speculated are important to the healing of Peyronie’s disease. So far the idea is working fairly well in a good number of cases. When men use this beefed up assortment of nutrients that the medical profession has speculated are important to the healing of Peyronie’s disease we seem to be getting better results than they are used singly or as isolated therapy items. PDI gets 8-10 reports of success (from minor to major improvement) from men who follow the PDI concepts for every one report of failure.

    Bear in mind there is no way a small group such as the Peyronie’s Disease Institute can do formal drug company-level research. We cannot match multi-billon dollar research, and it is that kind of research that they are looking for. And PDI must rely on the voluntary and individual reports of men who have used our ideas, so the information is not acceptable to the medical establishment.

    For all these reasons the medical profession is not interested in what PDI is doing at this time with Peyronie’s disease. TRH

  4. Rafael Mayorga says:

    Can you mail the Peyronie’s disease medicines to a country in Central America? How long will it take? Is there any risk of not getting the package?

  5. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Rafael,

    Peyronie’s Disease Institute mails all over the world, including Central America. We attempt to place orders in the mail the same day each order is received; 99% of the time we are successful. How long it takes to receive an order after it is out of our hands is variable, depending mostly on the customs office of each country. Orders to Canada usually take 5-10 days to receive; Australia and New Zealand usually 7-10 days; Great Britain usually 5-7 days; Central America usually 7-10 days. There is always risk your Peyronie’s disease treatment will not be received, usually due customs and import restrictions. My estimate is that for every 250 parcels we ship outside the US we will have a rejection of only one. For this reason we suggest each customer ask his customs office about restrictions for vitamins and related Alt Med treatments that are purchased from us. TRH

  6. Donnie says:

    I don’t know who to talk to about this. My penis started curving to the left,then it began curving upward. Could this be Peyronie’s disease? I need someone to look at it and assess it and I need advice on what to do. Please help. Thanks….

  7. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Donnie,

    Ask your family doctor to make a formal diagnosis of what is going on. After a rather simple evaluation you will be told if you have Peyronie’s disease. The doctor will check to see if you have any Peyronie’s disease fibrous plaque tissue, and ask you if you have any pain, if your erections are weaker or more difficult to maintain, if you have noticed any reduction of the size of your penis and a few other things.

    If you have Peyronie’s disease you can use the information on this website to support your body’s ability to heal the PD scar tissue, as happens in 50% of occurrences; our treatment idea is to help you heal this problem like half of the men who have Peyronie’s disease. Good luck to you. TRH

  8. Philip Draper says:

    I am 83 years old so having sex is not my concern, if I do nothing will the Peyronie’s disease eventually harm my general health? should I still see a Doctor about my condition?

  9. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Philip,

    Peyronie’s disease will not harm your general health; it is a local condition.

    At your next office visit I suggest you mention to your doctor that you think you have Peyronie’s disease, just so you can discuss this situation with your doctor and your records can be complete. TRH

  10. John Demara says:

    Hi, I’m 19 and just realised that I have a penis curve to the left side at about 30-45 degrees, so I am concerned about Peyronie’s disease. I read this whole site but I am still unsure about the alternative medical treatment that you said you came up with. Could you please tell me what the method is and do you think that since I’m 19, will Peyronie’s disease go away by itself or is it just going to get worse?

  11. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings John,

    Thanks for your questions about Peyronie’s disease; I will answer your points in order.

    Just because a man has a curved penis does not automatically mean he has Peyronie’s disease. To make that diagnosis several other key elements must be in place: First, The penis that is curved must have been previously straight; the curvature or distortion (dents, hourglass, bottleneck) must be a unique and new occurrence to him. There is a history usually some kind of trauma, use of prescribed drugs that have PD as a side effect, or a strong genetic predisposition. Examination should reveal the presence of the dreaded Peyronie’s disease plaque or scar, and almost always there is either or both reduced erection quality and reduced size of the penis. I suggest you see your medical doctor to determine if you actually have Peyronie’s disease.

    You have not read the entire Peyronie’s Disease Institute website; it would take weeks to cover everything here; you have read just small parts of it. What you have read you did not understand or remember. You could not have read the PDI site and have asked the questions you asked. Do yourself a favor and read more of this site so you truly understand what is involved with Peyronie’s disease. If you do this you will understand that our Alt Med treatment of Peyronie’s disease is intended to support the body’s natural recovery from PD. Half of the men who develop PD will get over their problem by a process of self-healing; it just goes away on its own. For the other 50% it can be a terrible problem that gradually worsens over a year or two, then usually stabilizes and persists. Few cases of Peyronie’s disease are exactly alike, so variations of all factors are possible making it a difficult problem to track and anticipate. Alt Med treatment is individualized based on response of the fibrous scar to changes in the size, shape, density and surface features, so it can be variable over time.

    I hope this helps your understanding of Peyronie’s disease, although I cannot tell you everything in this response; that is why you need to go back and dig into this information. Good luck, young man. TRH

  12. Patrick says:

    Hi from Australia Dr Herazy,

    I need some help with this curse. I have purchased the Peyronie’s disease program but to tell the truth I am a bit lost. I was diagnosed by a urologist formally about 2 months ago but the Peyronie’s disease problem has been there for maybe a year that I have noticed. I started with the following about 4 weeks ago.
    FUND SULPHUR-1/1/1
    VITC 1/1/1
    INFLAM 1/1/1
    VIT E 1/1//1

    I then tripled the dose for the last three week for the paba and doubled the others but I don’t see any change at all. Intamacy is almost impossible and from the scar forward to the tip is flaccid. I need some help with my Peyronie’s disease treatment.



  13. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Mate,

    You are not lost with your Peyronie’s disease treatment, you are expecting too much from yourself so early in care. You are putting so much pressure on your self for fast results that you are making your situation unnecessarily stressful. It is common for men with Peyronie’s disease to have unreasonable expectations for how fast recovery should occur, and that is your primary problem. Results are measured in months, not weeks. Peyronie’s disease is a recalcitrant and difficult problem to treat; the MDs have yet to figure it out after several hundred years, now that Xiaflex is showing itself to be a such a problematic and disappointing approach.

    Natural recovery takes time and you are only starting to work your dosages up into what I would call the therapeutic range. Your records show that you are not using many external therapies; no ultrasound, no gentle manual stretching, and you have not ordered the “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” so I know you have not altered your diet as you should, and you have not mentioned using the moist heat to assist you; as good as your early treatment approach might be there is a lot you are not doing.

    You ask for help in treating your PD:

    1. Stop ringing your hands about not seeing results after just four weeks of treatment. Put that energy into learning more about how good Peyronie’s disease treatment is conducted, and work harder at it.
    2. Evaluate the size, shape, density and surface features of your fibrous scar tissue in great detail. You do not mention anything about your scar so I assume you are like most guys from Oz who just jump in full of enthusiasm and skip this critically important step. You must be fully aware and record every physical aspect of your Peyronie’s disease scar so you will know when to stop increasing your dosages and other treatment.
    3. Re-read all the information that was sent to you with your first order. It is apparent you are not following all ideas and suggestions that were given that are critical for your success. You report you tripled your initial dosages after the first week and have continued at that dosage level for four weeks. This is a HUGE and common mistake. You must slowly increase your dosages every 7-10 days to make the Peyronie’s Disease Institute protocol work correctly for you.
    4. Spend some time on the PDI website to learn about Peyronie’s disease, ways to improve your diet, and how to use a few more external therapies to balance out your almost exclusive use of internal therapies. Get the “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” to learn these things and other lessons that will increase your treatment results.

    I believe you are on the right track, you just need more time and further development of your treatment plan to overcome your Peyronie’s disease. Let me know if I can assist you in any other way. TRH

    Greetings Barry,

    There is a cure for Peyronie’s disease; there is something that helps Peyronie’s disease – and you know all about it. The body heals PD in up to half of the cases.

    Once you view the fact that the natural healing ability of the body is often capable of successfully eliminating the Peyronie’s disease fibrous material, then treatment becomes a matter of helping your body do a better job of helping itself cure its own Peyronie’s disease.

    The work we have done here since 2002 in the Peyronie’s Disease Institute is all about learning how that process of self-healing works and how we can assist that process so that men who do not spontaneously heal can be helped to do a better job of it. PDI is simply trying to help that process in any way that makes sense. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not help. Over time we are slowly putting ideas together that seem to be pushing the success rate up a little bit.

    Our success rate in helping men do a better job of healing is that we get 8-10 reports of improvement (from moderate to marked) for every one report of failure. As we learn how to use the natural vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other therapies better perhaps the reports of improvement will increase. Time will tell.

    I have a feeling when you ask about a cure for Peyronie’s disease you are asking about or hoping for a drug that will simply get rid of PD scar material and everything will suddenly be better. I am not sure about that approach. However, since everyone agrees that the body can and does heal Peyronie’s disease on its own sometimes, does it not make sense to try to help your body do a better job and get rid of the PD naturally?

    Now that Xiaflex injections are showing themselves not to be the miracle cure that everyone was hoping for, I can understand why so many people are disappointed and frustrated again with the prospects of dealing with Peyronie’s disease with drugs and surgery.

    The issue that I have is that the Peyronie’s disease stops my penis from becoming fully erect, its like I have half a erection the top of my penis is flaccid and the rest is hard.. I’m so worried that I will not heal, I’m taking Potaba and serrapatese also comfrey tea and I’ve just bought MesoCopper spray.. Can you please advise me what else I can do for my Peyronie’s disease..

    And can you please help me with what to take with DMSO I live in England so I’m not too sure of things I can use that you have in the states and in England? Where can I buy DMSO cream to treat my Peyronie’s disease?

    Thank you.

  16. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Bob,

    Your Peyronie’s disease has resulted in what is known as a bottle neck deformity. This is caused by the internal PD scar tissue preventing closure of the internal veins at the far end of you penis. This results in a failure of full erection in which only a section of the penis becomes erect while the remaining part stays flaccid.

    You are on the right track with your Peyronie’s disease treatment, but you are not fully using all this available for you or all that is indicated to assist your recovery; there are several more important and valuable therapies that work to abet and support natural healing of the Peyronie’s disease fibrous scar material. If you look the PDI site over you will see that they are all available here at We have been doing this work since 2002 and find that the larger and more aggressive a treatment plan is to encourage healing the better the scar reduction – and this translated directly into reduction of deformity and pain, and improvement of erectile function.

    Our work is predicated on the idea that that about half of Peyronie’s disease problems just spontaneously goes away – they cure themselves by natural healing. Those men who are in that happy 50% group who eliminate their fibrous scar confirms that there is a cure for Peyronie’s disease – the body often can and does eliminate get rid of it. PDI uses a combination of a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other therapies in an effort to assist the body to do a better job of curing its own Peyronie’s disease. Our Peyronie’s disease success rate is 8-10 reports of improvement (from moderate to marked) for every one report of failure.

    You asked about DMSO availability; it is found on the link given above. It is best combined with the copper peptide and vitamin E oil we have used since 2002; the copper peptide you mentioned is a good product, but I think our Super CP Serum is better and more effective.

    PDI has shipped to the UK several times a week for almost 20 years without incident. Besides excellent Peyronie’s disease therapy products, we offer advice and experience gained after working with men from around the world. When you receive an order from PDI you will also receive information and suggestions about using whatever you ordered in the best way possible; you will no longer be guessing about your treatment. It appears you are attempting to research and figure things out for yourself; this is difficult and you are spending a lot of time collecting ideas that may or may not be helpful to you. We would be happy to assist you with your Peyronie’s disease in any way we can. TRH

    Will the PDI treatments help heal a freshly strained penis through muscle tissue repair and de-inflammation ? or are the PDI regimen only focused on breaking down the Peyronie’s disease scar fibers? Would love to know

  18. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Bryan,

    Peyronie’s disease does not directly involve the muscle tissue of the penis, but the layer of tissue (tunica albuginea) that cover the penis muscles; Peyronie’s disease involves the thin tunica albuginea layer of the penis, not muscle tissue. If something goes wrong during the inflammation stage when this tissue layer is injured it can result in excessive scar development, known as Peyronie’s disease.

    Our PDI treatment protocol was designed and intended to help the body reverse the established Peyronie’s disease fibrous scar, which it does in a fairly high percent of cases when the protocol is followed correctly; 8-10 reports of moderate to great success for every one report of failure. It is with established Peyronie’s disease cases where I have most experience and interest, since the medical treatment for PD is still very disappointing. However, I have communicated with many men whose condition was pre-Peyronie’s disease, meaning they had sustained a recent penis injury and were experiencing no overt PD signs or symptoms; they were concerned about prevention of Peyronie’s disease soon after injury. Many of these men used a small or medium PDI treatment plan along with our Quell supplement (providing omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA because of their anti-inflammatory properties) and reported good progress through the inflammatory process and no development of Peyronie’s disease. These numbers are not great, perhaps 50-60 over the last few years, and not nearly as great as those cases of established Peyronie’s disease I have dealt with during that same time.

    For this reason I cannot say clearly that the PDI protocol can assist the healing of penis injury to avoid excessive fibrous formation (Peyronie’s disease), since I do not have great experience with that process. However, I can say that in a small number of cases I have received back positive results from many of these men. TRH

  19. Reggie says:

    I was diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease 5 years ago at age 50. My doctor advised me to take a wait and see approach. After about 2 years of consistently getting a little worse, it finally stabilized. Now at age 55, I wish I would have taken action sooner on my Peyronie’s disease, and now feel like it’s too late to consider anything but surgery,,,, an expensive alternative I can’t really afford. Is the natural method a REAL option for me?

  20. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Reggie,

    Sorry to hear about your Peyronie’s disease. The wait-and-see approach is designed to see if you will spontaneously heal your Peyronie’s disease with the normal immune response.

    Half of the men who develop PD recover from it through the natural ability of the body to heal and repair; the other half deal with it in their lives. The fact that many men can heal their own Peyronie’s disease should spark a few questions. “If other men healed their own PD, why not me? If it is possible, why didn’t I just get rid of my PD like those other guys?” All PDI is trying to do is to help you do a better job of healing your Peyronie’s disease than you did the first time around.

    Most of the natural PDI Peyronie’s disease treatment protocol is used by men who problem is from 2-7 years old; it has been successfully used on older PD cases, just not as commonly or as often. Most men who have Peyronie’s disease lose hope and stop looking for help after a few years and by the time they have had it for more than five years they stop looking completely, so we get to work with only a few of this older cases. I have worked with men who Peyronie’s disease was over 20 years old and they received positive changes.

    Your concern about the high cost of Peyronie’s disease surgery is understandable, but that should be only one of your concerns. Your doctor probably did not spend much time or effort talking about recurrence of Peyronie’s disease after surgery, the failure rate of this kind of operation or how bad some surgical failures can be – few MDs ever do. You need to investigate Peyronie’s disease recurrence rate and failed surgery on the internet to get an idea of your odds. Most men with Peyronie’s disease are given the surgical option as though it is a simple and easy way out of this dilemma; they only learn about the pitfalls after it happens to them, when none of it can be reversed. I am not against the use of surgery for Peyronie’s disease, but I am against using it before other conservative options are first explored.

    The natural PDI treatment protocol is intended to assist and promote the normal process of self-healing that occurs in those lucky men who eliminate their own PD. Sometimes natural Alt Med treatment works and sometimes it does not; the PDI success rate in helping men reverse their Peyronie’s disease is 8-10 reports of improvement (from moderate to marked) for every one report of failure. PDI has been doing this work since 2002. In that time we have never had a case of recurrence, and we have never had a problem with side effects or bad reactions.

    Please spend some time on this website to see how this process of self-healing Peyronie’s disease might work for you. TRH

  21. Matt says:

    Hello doctor, I am 23 years old and have been dealing with Peyronie’s disease for at least a year. It has seemed to worsen in the last 3-4 months, to the point where now, my erections are weaker and less frequent. The curve is not too bad, but the thing that seems problematic is how hard the tissue of the sides of my penis are. I have used castor oil and have noticed slight improvements (Ive only been on it for a couple weeks). It seems DMSO could help, and I will purchase some from your site as I truly trust it seems to be the best DMSO out there for my condition. Do you think that a therapy of using my pure cold compressed castor oil followed by your DMSO will improve my condition? Also, do you think my age plays to my advantage for fixing my Peyronie’s disease? I am really concerned about this obviously and would greatly appreciate any feed back. Thank you.

  22. Dr.Herazy says:

    Greetings Matt,

    It is common for Peyronie’s disease to worsen during the first 1-2 years after onset; changes in penis curvature and size, pain and erection quality.

    You are proposing to use a topical application of castor oil and DMSO for your Peyronie’s disease, a slight variation of what is called Thacker’s formula. Occasionally I hear of men trying this, but I never come across solid evidence it has helped anyone. Sporadic and unverifiable reports of improvement on a forum somewhere should not be your sole source of information for something as important as Peyronie’s disease treatment. Be careful whose ideas you collect.

    Your young age is only a theoretical advantage; it ought to be an advantage, that seems logical. Yet I have not seen a dependable trend showing younger men do better than older men when dealing with Peyronie’s disease. As far as the PDI treatment protocol is concerned the major factors determining effectiveness and rate of recovery are aggressiveness and faithfulness to following a diversified treatment plan.

    Half of the men with Peyronie’s disease will self-correct or spontaneously heal the problem; PD goes away by itself half of the time. The PDI treatment protocol is designed to support that natural ability of the body to recover. Your thought should be, “If other men healed their own Peyronie’s disease, why not me? What can I do to help myself heal better?” All PDI is trying to do is to help you do a better job of healing your Peyronie’s disease than you did the first time around.

    Review the PDI website to see if this information makes sense to you. Let me know if I can help you in any way with your Peyronie’s disease. TRH
