Genesen Acutouch Pointers

Genesen Acutouch non-needle acupuncture: easy and effective at-home treatment

Genesen Acutouch pointers come with a 168-page manual written just for the layperson to use this professional grade equipment for doing acupuncture without needles

Acupuncture is one small part of a 5,000 year-old oriental healing tradition. It is performed by inserting fine needles into the skin to stimulate or sedate specific treatment points on the surface of the body. Two main reasons people today who would like to try acupuncture do not do it: the cost and the needles. The availability of the remarkable non-needle Genesen Acutouch professional grade acupuncture equipment has changed all that.

Genesen Acutouch pointers

Genesen pointers provide easy and effective non-needle at-home treatment by the layperson The Genesen Acutouch instruments are sometimes called Acutouch pointers or Genesen pointers because of the way that they are used during treatment; they are simply pointed toward an area on the surface of the body. To receive the benefit of acupuncture treatment it is no longer necessary to be concerned about pain, bleeding or fear of needles.   Just point the tips of the Genesen touch pointer and let them do all the work.  
The Acutouch pointers are ideal for both the professional acupuncturist and the layperson for several reasons:
1.    Acutouch Pointers are totally safe because they do not penetrate the skin and bleeding cannot occur. The instrument uses only natural atmospheric infrared, magnetic and ionic energy.  It provides a simple, non-invasive, self-administered treatment that is totally unique in both traditional and Alternative Medicine because it uses no artificial or external power source, with no wires and no batteries to replace – it is totally mobile.
2.    This instrument produces a wide treatment area. The tissue area that is affected by the galvanic energy field of the Acutouch pointers is huge compared to an acupuncture needle.   The treatment area of an acupuncture needle is about the width of a human hair; the treatment area of the Genesen Acutouch Pointer tip is one inch or 25 mm. For this reason a person only needs to be roughly close to an acupuncture point for the Genesen device to be effective. Experts and novices get similar results using it for this reason. This instrument has such a wide area of impact or effectiveness, and it tells you when you are on the correct treatment area, that you cannot make a mistake with it.
3.    Your Genesen pointers will last a lifetime because it has no moving parts, it will never wear out, and it has no external power source. This is certainly space age technology you can hold in your hands today. It operates on an infinite supply of natural atmospheric energy, providing the home user with a compact, portable and convenient response to more than 220 ailments, injuries and conditions.
4.    Effectiveness of point stimulation. The Genesen Acutouch instrument is manufactured to ISO9002 standards; the product carries CE certification as a Class 1 medical device. It causes penetration of chi to pass down through the gold tips (coated in 20 microns of 24K gold for optimum hygiene, performance and response) into the body to a depth of 25mm (1 inch).
Most people do not realize there are many methods to effectively stimulate acupuncture points; pressure, heat and electricity are just a few different ways that are commonly used instead of needle stimulation.  With the recent development of the Genesen Acutouch pointers everyone can safely and easily stimulate various acupuncture points on the body, and do it with just as much accuracy as a highly skilled acupuncturist.
By following the simple instructions that come with this equipment it is now possible for a layperson with no formal training to perform a rather sophisticated acupuncture treatment without encountering any of the problems and limitations of traditional needles. The Genesen pens (they are often called this because each one looks very much like a ballpoint pen) will indicate to the user when an active acupuncture point has been located and if it is in need of treatment. It is this aspect of the Acutouch pointers that make them so easy to use and effective even in the hands of a total novice.

Genesen pointers are fun and easy to use

There are several great reasons anyone who is interested in Alternative Medicine would use Genesen Acutouch at-home therapy in place of traditional needle acupuncture.
  • Safety – no needles involved
  • Results – the three forms of naturally occurring energy focused by the Genesen pointers spread out an inch wide and penetrate an inch deep into the tissue to stimulate every acupuncture point for treatment
  • Cost – with professional acupuncture office visits costing anywhere from $75 to $200 each, the Genesen instruments will pay for themselves after just a few uses.
  • Convenience – treat yourself or family members in the privacy and comfort of your home at any time of the day or night, as often as you like  
  • Ease – simply look at the pictures in the 160 page instruction book and place the pointers on those same areas of the body. The Genesen Acutouch pointers will tell you if you are on the correct or not; if not, simply move to another spot until the pointers indicate you have located the correct area for treatment.
The Genesen Acutouch instrument was invented by a South Korean engineer, Chi Kyung Kim, in 1999. It carries several international patents and earned him awards from the governments of several countries.  The Acutouch pointers use a combination of 1200-G focused magnets; a pinpoint far infrared beam (between 6 and 14 micrometers) that is focused down the length of the hexagonal barrel of the device; and a negative ion emitter in a ceramic powder chamber. These three energy sources are tuned to precisely merge at the gold plated point of each Acutouch device. The gold pointers of the device direct this composite of natural energy into the body, stimulating the body’s inherent ability to regulate and heal itself.
Acupuncture is not one thing. There are many styles of acupuncture and many ways of stimulating acupuncture points. Some of the best acupuncture treatments are those provided without traditional needles, using innovation and the ability to respond to the needs of the individual. The Genesen pointers allow you to do just that kind of self-care treatment. You can hold in your hands a truly revolutionary treatment device like the Genesen Acutouch pointers even as a layperson and deliver an effective acupuncture treatment, without the costs, problems and limitations of traditional needles to those you love.

Thacker’s Formula – Other Peyronie’s Treatment Questions

Thacker's formula and other Peyronie’s disease treatment questions

Perhaps a few times a month someone emails a question to me about Thacker's formula.  This legendary Peyronie’s treatment – called Thacker’s formula because of the Dr. Thacker who is said to have created it – contains a specific ratio of Castor oil, DMSO and apple cider vinegar.  Although I know the exact proportions to make this Peyronie's treatment I will not disclose this information here because I can not provide in this space all the details for correct use that are necessary to use it correctly and safely.

Along a similar line, I am sometimes asked if I know anything about using various things like herbs for herbal Peyronie’s disease treatment (ginkgo biloba, echinacea), a micronutrient (Coenzyme Q, EPA), or some type of old home remedy (garlic, Castor oil, olive oil) that might be used as a Peyronie’s disease cure.   They want to know what I would think about using the Thacker's formula or other treatment, and why don't any of these types of treatment appear in the PDI lineup of therapies?

In order for any therapy or procedure to be included in the PDI lineup of 14 potential Peyronie’s treatments, it has to have either been applied specifically in treatment of PD in a series of scientific studies and proven at least 50% effective in several trials (even though it might have done poorly in others), or it must have demonstrated good success and acceptance within the scientific community for treatment of other unrelated health problems (acupuncture and homeopathy).  With this simple criterion we establish some level of scientific credibility for those therapies in our PDI lineup, and further increase the possible effectiveness of therapy when several of these are united in a synergistic program of care.

There are probably some really good Peyronie’s disease treatment ideas that could be actually very effective.  But who among us wants to spend his time, effort, money, and most importantly, his opportunity to get over his Peyronie’s disease by experimenting with theories that have absolutely no proven ability to influence the body to promote healing? I did not want to waste my time on theories of questionable merit, when I knew there were many available that had already achieved some level of success.  This last group seemed to be a better place to look for answers, than chasing unproven ideas.

Edgar Cayce’s castor oil pack might indeed be an effective Peyronies’ disease treatment, but for one reason or another it has not been subjected to even minimal scrutiny for PD.  The goal of recovering from Peyronies is too great to use an untried treatment, when there are so many others of higher credibility and logic to work with.

Thacker's formula does not meet Peyronie's treatment guidelines

PDI was started on the basis of using treatments of some level of known and proven merit, and uses this standard today to determine what additions will be recommended and used in future therapy plans.  Rumors, stories, and speculation you read about on a Peyronie’s forum are not enough.  Alternative Medicine employs early science to see through the maze of superstition and learn the truth of what may or may not work to regain health.  These are the principles used to formulate the current Peyronie’s disease treatment strategies you have learned about.  We are already working on the outer rim of established medical practice, but we must be careful to not go too far away from common sense and valuable scientific information that will help us achieve our health goals.

Usually, my suggestion for someone who wants to use such a new Peyronie’s treatment is to do it in combination with several other known and better proven therapies already in the Peyronie's Disease Institute lineup.  This way there is back-up treatment, and the total effort will create a therapeutic synergy.  Never is it suggested to use only the one therapy of any type, proven or unproven.

So, if you are just adding in an extra type of therapy because you read about it on a Peyronie’s forum, I say, all the more power to your curiosity and sense of adventure, but please do not use it exclusively as the treatment you provide for yourself.

While there is no reason to believe there is any potential harm in using Thacker's formula correctly, and perhaps great therapeutic benefit,  at this time I cannot endorse the use of Thacker's formula because it is essentially untested and unproven in any meaningful way.  There is a lot of good information about sensible Peyronie’s disease treatment, with reasonably good results in research testing, that should be used in a broad based  rehabilitation program.

Curved Penis and Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronies bent penis is focus of problem

While the primary interest of Peyronie’s disease treatment is the internal scar tissue or fibrous  plaque material that causes the distortion or curved penis to develop, it is not the primary interest of the man who has PD.  For him, the most important aspect of Peyronie’s disease is the curved penis that plagues him.  For this reason Peyronies is also known as the “bent nail disease.”

For those interested in viewing graphic pictures, click curved penis of Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie’s disease causes a curved penis when the fibrous tissue of the Peyronie scar or plaque pulls unevenly or causes incomplete filling within the erect penis.  This can vary in degree or severity from man to man.  For this reason the curved penis does not indicate the severity of the Peyronies problem or success of Peyronies disease treatment.  The true success of Peyronies treatment is based on the change that occurs in the Peyronies plaque or scar.  Once the fibrous scar changes, eventual improvement in the curved penis can be expected in time.

The internal tissue of the healthy penis is flexible and expandable.  This normal tissue is able to allow for a normal erection to develop when blood is trapped inside the organ.

In Peyronie’s disease some of the tissue is not healthy or flexible and elastic.  Specifically, the deep tissue known as the tunica albuginea is not elastic because it replaced by dense and inelastic fibrous tissue that is called a scar or plaque.   As an erection develops the elastic tissue of the tunica albuginea must stretch and expand evenly on both sides, left and fright, and top and bottom, of the penis.  If this cannot happen because an area of the penis is no longer flexible and expandable, then a curved penis results.

Peyronie’s disease usually begins with a small nodule or bump that is found on the top or sides of the penis, just immediately below the surface.  A few weeks to several months to a year later, a small fibrous nodule can expand into a larger irregular scar of variable size, shape, density and surface quality.  These scars can be as long as the penis.  Some appear like a collar to go around the shaft.   Some are one large mass, while others appear to be like small isolated islands of fibrous tissue in many areas.   Scars can be so soft or small, with edges so tapered and vague that no scar can be found.  In a case of Peyronie’s disease when no scar or plaque can be found, it is still assumed to exist when a curved penis develops during erection. .

Normally curved penis

Most men have a straight erection, but some are born with a penis that curves or bends (usually upward).   Just as fingers on the hand or a nose can display a natural bend, or arms can be of different length on the same person, the penis can be bent without the presence of Peyronies.  Typically, the normally curved penis follows a more gradual and arched design, more like a banana.  In Peyronie’s disease the curved penis is more localized and abrupt, like an angulated bend.

When the two primary chambers (corpora cavernosa) of the penis are a different diameter or length, the penis will bend when erect.   The penis will appear straight when flaccid, and on erection it will bend.

This slight penile distortion will not be associated with pain, there will be no trauma in the history, and it will not appear suddenly as does the curved penis of Peyronie’s disease.

Curved penis affects sexual intercourse

It is estimated that 75-90% of Peyronie’s disease couples will sooner or later experience a sexual intercourse problem, in regard to either pain or difficult penetration – or both.   The curved penis of is the primary reason sexual penetration is compromised, and it is also the reason for the pain that can be experienced by either – or both – partner. This is especially so in those cases in which the distortion is so severe it is described as “cork screw” or “cane handle.”

Incomplete filling of the penis with blood during erection can also happen in Peyronies.  This results in an area of the penis, either small or large, that is soft and unable to sustain the rigors of intercourse.  A soft area within an otherwise firm erection presents a weakness and vulnerability of the normally turgid erection.  A weak area of erection can suddenly collapse or buckle during intercourse, causing additional injury to the penile tissue.  This can cause pain, inflammation and additional fibrous infiltration.

It is a rare Peyronies couple that does not deal with some level of sexual difficulty related to penile distortion and reduced firmness of the erection.  The many physical, emotional and social issues of Peyronie’s disease are complex.  For this reason the reader is referred to “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex” for more information about this complicated area of life with a curved penis.

Treatment of the curved penis

It is important to remember that any penile distortion that develops in Peyronie’s disease is not the primary problem of this condition.   A curved penis that appears one night is difficult to ignore, but is only a symptom of the real problem of Peyronie’s disease – the scar. Without the Peyronies scar there would be no curved penis.

This is the reason I advise men who are undergoing Peyronies treatment to focus on the size, shape, density and surface qualities of the scar or plaque to determine if their Alternative Medicine treatment is being effective.  The curvature can improve or worsen as the scar is reduced.

A small scar can cause a large bend, just as a large scar can cause no bend at all if it is balanced and symmetrical.   For this reason a curved penis can worsen as the scar is being reduced or eliminated.   Estimating progress or success of a PD therapy plan is difficult .  A man can have many more scars than he is aware of, and they can be larger than can be detected since they are often difficult to locate and often overlap.

If only one scar is present the curvature problems are direct and easy to understand, although  this is unusual.   However, if multiple scars are present the internal pulling and twisting they cause can be very complicated.   Several scars can interact on many  planes of internal penile tissue.   Any reduction in one or more scar will alter the internal tension and pulling of the tissues, resulting in an altered curvature.  There is no guarantee the curvature will change for the better initially – sometimes it can look worse as the scars become smaller.  This is why I advise to focus all attention to the size, shape, density and surface qualities of the scar while treatment of the Peyronies problem continues.  Realize the curved penis is just a reflection of what is going on with the scar9s) below the surface.

Do not be discouraged by the curved penis of Peyronie’s disease.  Instead, stay focused on your plan for effective Peyronies treatment.  Learn more about Peyronie’s disease treatment.

Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Question

Peyronie’s treatment that are not mainstream

Every now and then someone emails a question to me about an herbal Peyronie’s disease treatment (ginkgo biloba, echinacea), a micronutrient (coenzyme Q, EPA), and old standby like vitamin E, or an old home remedy (garlic, Castor oil, olive oil) that might be used as a Peyronie’s disease cure. Along a similar line, I am sometimes asked if I know anything about a legendary Peyronie’s treatment known as Thacker’s formula, what I would think about using the treatment, and why does this treatment not appear in the PDI lineup of therapies?

How is a Peyronie's treatment method selected by PDI?

In order for any therapy or procedure to be included in the PDI lineup of 14 potential Peyronie’s treatments, it has to have either been applied specifically in treatment of PD in a series of scientific studies and proven at least 50% effective in several trials (even though it might have done poorly in others), or it must have demonstrated good success and acceptance within the scientific community for treatment of other unrelated health problems (acupuncture and homeopathy). With this simple criterion we establish some level of scientific credibility for those therapies in our PDI lineup, and further increase the possible effectiveness of therapy when several of these are united in a synergistic program of care.

Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease with Alternative Medicine

Peyronie's Disease Treatment is simple with Alternative Medicine

All Peyronie's disease treatment is surrounded by controversy.  Every drug used for treatment for Peyronie's disease is unproven, to say nothing of the Alternative Medicine treatments proposed by PDI.

No one can say which is the best treatment for Peyronie's disease at this time, because only prescription medication is researched by the drug industry.  Peyronie’s surgery and medication are the only forms of treatment for Peyronie’s disease that the pharmaceutical companies seriously investigate; no other Peyronie’s treatments are even considered.  With no economic motivation Alternative Medicine ideas are ignored.

The Peyronie's Disease Institute offers a way for the average man to apply concepts and have personal control over a form of new treatment for Peyronie’s disease, using Alternative Medicine.  Peyronie’s natural treatment will never be considered by the pharmaceutical and hospital industries, and these business interests will never endorse home treatment for Peyronie’s disease for obvious economic reasons.

The PDI website recommends aggressive use of multiple Peyronie's natural treatment in the acute and chronic stages.  The purpose of this intense treatment for Peyronie’s disease is to increase and support the maximum healing potential of the body.  In this way each man is given the best possible opportunity to repair and regenerate the damaged penile tissue to the best of his ability.

"Proof" of Peyronie's Disease Treatment

In modern society drugs and medical technology with the greatest profit potential are researched most and are pushed hardest into the marketplace. Even though a particular treatment for Peyronie's disease might help people, unless there is strong economic motivation to find “proof” that it works.  Low profit therapies (vitamins, enzymes, homeopathy) are generally ignored by the medical establishment for reason of simple economics.   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 home treatment for Peyronie’s disease can stay untested (ignored actually), and therefore remain “unproven”.

New Treatment for Peyronie's Disease

Our theories for using aggressive and multiple Peyronie’s treatments are not yet proven.  That proof is probably a long way off, since PDI cannot underwrite Peyronie's disease research the way a large university or billion dollar company can.   PDI is not against surgery or drugs in cases that have been non-responsive to prolonged aggressive use of its new treatment for Peyronie’s disease.  Too many men rush into Peyronie’s surgery believing that is an easy and sure solution to a big problem.

Natural 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.  We strongly suggest that abundant benefits are available to any man who needs treatment for Peyronie’s disease by using what is known and what is available – even if it is not perfect – rather than passively behave like a Peyronie’s victim.

Peyronie’s Disease and Baby Boomers

Peyronie’s disease: male health problem no one knows about

If you are a member of the baby boomer generation and have never heard of Peyronie’s (pay-row-neez) disease, you are not alone. However, if you are a male baby boomer or married to one, you are in the prime age group to experience a problem you know nothing about. This is so because Peyronies disease primarily affects men between 50 to 65 years of age, although an age range of 18 to 80 years has been reported, with an average age at onset of 53. Few people know about the problem until they need Peyronie’s disease treatment. This is why it is important for all baby boomers to know about, and how to avoid, it because this health problem can easily ruin your life. Peyronie’s disease remains one of the most perplexing and difficult urological diseases to treat; it has been called “the doctor’s nightmare”. Most everything about this condition (cause, progression, symptoms, age distribution, response to treatment) is variable and unique to the man who has it. The great variability of Peyronie’s disease that makes it difficult to study and to understand, also makes it almost impossible to treat like other medical conditions. It is a complex problem that is much more common than most people realize. Estimates suggest that up to eight out of 100 men over the age of 40 have Peyronie’s disease – that is a lot of people worldwide – and still only a small percent of people have ever heard of it. People are reluctant to discuss this problem because it involves the male organ. For this reason it is difficult to develop accurate information and statistics, especially since men are so shy on one hand, yet also inclined to exaggerate.

Definition of Peyronie’s disease

Peyronie’s disease can best be understood as an exaggerated wound healing in response to an injury in which an excessive amount of Peyronie’s scar tissue develops within the man’s shaft. Peyronie’s disease (also known by over 12 different names, among which is “iduratio penis plastica”) is very special disorder of the connective tissue in which fibrous “scars” or “plaques” develop usually after direct injury. This Peyronie’s plaque occurs in a special tissue of the shaft known as the tunica albuginea, a fibrous chamber or envelope that surrounds the two penile cylindrical shaped masses of spongy tissue known as the corpora cavernosa. The corpora cavernosa enlarge during sexual excitement, and the tunica albuginea covering, are designed to expand and elongate. If there is fibrous scar or plaque material in the tunica albuginea, the expansion and elongation cannot develop properly resulting in bending, weakness, shortening and incomplete filling of the organ. Sometimes this distortion is mild (just a few degrees) and does not affect the ability to perform, while at other times the distortion can be extreme (more than 90 degrees) resulting in greatly adverse consequences. A certain degree of normal penile curvature can and does occur in some men. This is a benign and natural condition many men are born with, commonly referred to as congenital curvature; this is not Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie’s disease signs and symptoms

Four common findings of Peyronie’s disease:

  1. Pain – caused by inflammation and stretching of internal tissues in response to injury and distortion; can be present constantly or only during erection
  2. Nodule or mass formation – variable size lumps or elongated cords can develop in one or multiple areas; sometimes these are difficult or impossible to locate depending on the density, depth and size of the scar formation
  3. Curvature or distortion – caused by presence of one or more nodules or masses of scar tissue in the tunica albuginea, preventing normal expansion during erection; can be minor to gross in appearance
  4. Reduced sexual ability – due to physical distortion that prevents penetration or due to reduced firmness that also prevents penetration (erectile dysfunction).

The onset of Peyronie's disease symptoms can be sudden or slow, but often appears within a month or two after direct injury. The pain of Peyronie’s disease is extremely variable; from hardly noticeable to the kind of pain that prevents sleep. Peyronie’s pain is worse in the beginning, usually gradually improving over time – improvement in a few weeks while others continue for years. For these reasons Peyronie’s pain is not a reliable way to judge the severity or calculate the time for eventual recovery. Even though Peyronie’s disease is a male health problem, women are also affected by it. They are indirectly and adversely affected by the erectile dysfunction, organ curvature and distortion that make intercourse often impossible, as well as loss of organ size that often occurs over time. Additionally, and perhaps even to a greater degree than men, woman bear the brunt of the mood swings, anger, brooding and ill-temper that accompany their partner’s Peyronies problem.

Treatment of Peyronie’s disease

There is no standard or accepted medical Peyronie’s cure since no drug is proven to eliminate the scar within the shaft. The only accepted and available medical treatment is Peyronie's disease surgery. However, given enough time after Peyronie’s surgery the condition will only re-appear in a worsened presentation. This surgical outcome is made bleaker by knowing that even the first Peyronie’s surgery can result in total loss of sensation (anesthesia), increased pain and increased curvature and greater scar formation than before surgery, and in some cases amputation. The Peyronie’s Disease Institute has specialized for the last eight years in the use of Alternative Medicine therapies and techniques that are found to be successful in perhaps 60-80% of cases. None of the therapies are known to result in adverse reactions or side effects. For more information about the Alternative Medicine approach, visit Peyronie’s disease treatment.

Prevention of Peyronie’s disease

google sniper review

With so many variable aspects of this problem to consider, it is important to know that in addition to everything else, there is no universal agreement about the cause of Peyronies. Some say that injury alone cannot start the problem as we have described above, but that other genetic and metabolic factors must also be present. The Peyronie’s Disease Institute takes the position that this is true. However, if a man never sustains direct injury to the area he is far less likely to develop Peyronies. With age not working in the favor of any baby boomer couple, it is important to evaluate all situations in which direct injury can affect this area – especially sexual activity. This requires that special caution is exercised if a baby boomer gentleman finds he no longer has the usual firmness he previously possessed (erectile dysfunction). Attempting intercourse with a partially flaccid organ can result in sudden buckling or abrupt bending during insertion or the sex act itself. Another way to prevent injury is to modify the techniques used during sexual relations. The single most common injury that starts Peyronie’s disease occurs when the female partner is on top, and she loses hold of him while she thrusts down, jamming and painfully bending him against her upper thigh. To avoid this kind of injury it is important to not use any female-superior position, but to use other techniques in which physical contact is controlled, firm and not likely to disengage during activity. Even if baby boomers have never heard of this terrible condition that robs a couple of one of the greatest pleasures of life, it happens every day. Now that you know about Peyronie’s disease you can do a lot to protect the best years of your life. Dr. Theodore Herazy has practiced Alternative Medicine for over 40 years, and has directed the Peyronie’s Disease Institute for the last eight years. He has written two books about this problem, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” and “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex.”

There are several totally different and new Peyronies treatment concepts recently developed by the Peyronie’s Disease Institute. These Peyronie’s disease treatment concepts are improvements over existing ideas and information known within the medical community.

The first new Peyronies treatment is the most exciting, and this has to do with the professionally produced CD video that presents the Peyronie’s Disease Institute Manual Penis Stretching Method©. After talking to so many men who were injured by those ineffective and dangerous mechanical penis stretching devices, I decided to investigate the subject. The basic idea of stretching the Peyronie’s scar to reduce the tight and contracted tissue is interesting. So much so, that after a two year research project, PDI developed a safe, sensible, effective and affordable method that actually works and is safe. With this new Peyronies treatment it is possible to manually stretch the scar material because it goes about it in a way that is different from the mechanical penis stretchers.

The CD for this new Peyronies treatment clearly demonstrates how to gently stretch the thickened fibrous tissue inside the shaft of the bent penis – something totally new in the world of Peyronie’s disease – to improve the six basic types of PD deformities:
1. Twist
2. Curve
3. Bend
4. Dent (also called a ding, depression, or hinge)
5. Hourglass
6. Bottleneck
Further, additional information is included that explains how to successfully stretch a combination of distortions, since very often two or more penis distortions appear together.

Synergy as a new Peyronie's treatment

Another new Peyronies treatment concept first presented by PDI is the concept of using a combination of several Alternative Medicine therapies together at the same time to increase the effectiveness of each one. This is a concept called synergy. This new treatment approach to Peyronie’s treatment is the foundation of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute therapy approach. To read more about this concept, go to synergy.

Diet as a new Peyronie's treatment

Next in the way of a new Peyronies treatment is the idea of using diet in the management of PD, that developed from the ongoing research project conducted for almost eight years by Peyronie’s Disease Institute. The dietary treatment approach for Peyronies treatment centers on the idea of closely reducing wide swings of the acid and alkaline balance of the blood. This diet is explained in some detail in the book written by Dr. Theodore Herazy, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.”

Actually, most of the information presented on the website of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute falls into the category of a new Peyronies treatment because in the past, before PDI came into being, only drugs and surgery were considered a serious Peyronie’s disease treatment. Now, many areas of Alternative Medicine are being successfully applied.  PDI has opened wide horizons for new Peyronies treatment.

Peyronie’s Disease Research

Peyronie’s research using Alternative Medicine

The type of Peyronie’s disease research conducted by the Peyronie’s Disease Institute (PDI) is not like the Peyronie’s research performed by the government, universities or large multibillion dollar drug companies.

To begin with, the Peyronie’s disease research of PDI is conducted exclusively in areas of therapeutic interest that do not have great profitability. The Peyronie’s Disease Institute works in the area of Alternative Medicine, meaning the use of vitamins, herbs, minerals, enzymes and non-invasive procedures that are intended increase the ability of the body to heal and repair the Peyronie’s disease plaque material. The goal of our Peyronie’s disease research is not to cure the body from the outside-in as a drug or surgery attempts –- so far unsuccessfully –- to do. Our goal and our research efforts are intended to work from the inside-out as a way to increase the body’s ability to self-correct the basic injury of Peyronie’s disease.

The body heals and self-corrects itself of a wide variety of conditions. Broken bones heal.  Some cancer will heal without outside help. many kinds of infections and disease processes come and go in a natural process of self-repair if the body is given adequate time and support to allow the normal immune response to occur as it should. What is the old saying? “God heals the body, and the surgeon takes the fee.”

Peyronie’s research projects at Peyronie’s Disease Institute

Peyronie’s disease research activity at the Peyronie’s Disease Institute for the last eight years has involved a few select projects of special interest:

1. Ongoing voluntary and anonymous Peyronie's survey research using online multiple questionnaire, consists of 48 questions, with scores tabulated and recorded for individual assessment and trend development.

As a result of the trend score tabulated, work was done to develop a specialized diet to assist balance of the blood pH more toward the alkaline side of normal. This information is available in the book, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook”

2. Private individual Peyronie’s disease research with 10 volunteers to develop a gentle manual penis stretching technique that would reduce penile distortion commonly associated with Peyronie’s disease.

As a result of this 12 month Peyronie’s research effort the PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© was developed as a totally new and effective way to change the penile distortion associated with Peyronie’s disease.

Additional Peyronie’s research projects are being considered for investigation into self-treatment with non-invasive self-administered acupuncture point stimulation, massage, and vitamin E therapy.

Average Time for Peyronie’s Disease Treatment to See Results

Peyronie's disease treatment averages

There are no averages with Peyronie’s disease.  Everything about Peyronie’s disease is up for grabs. And for sure there is no average time within which men respond to Peyronie’s disease treatment. Some men respond in a few weeks, others take months, and some not at all. There are those who email me saying they are not responding to Peyr0nie's treatment.  After questioning them,  I usually find  they made the mistake of either using a plan that is too small or not faithfully following the plan they have.  PD is a tough problem and you must be dedicated to eliminating the problem – half efforts do not work. What we propose at PDI is a concept for Peyronie's disease therapy that is not so earth shattering or extreme.  All we are doing is attempting to figure out why your PD did not correct like about 50% of the men who develop this problem.  If half of the men “cure” their own PD, why not you?  That is all we are attempting to address with our therapy concept.  It is really not so far out as some of the other things you find on the Internet. All standard medical information about PD clearly states that in half of the cases, the Peyronies “goes away on its own.”   The Peyronie’s disease treatment approach promoted by PDI is to do all that is necessary to prepare the body to heal on its own, just as it should happen, just as happens in half of the cases.   In this sense you can say that a natural Peyronie's cure is about 50% effective.   It is really not such a crazy or extreme idea.  PDI advocates that an aggressive use of multiple conservative Alternative Medicine therapies, as outlined in our website, an assist the body to heal the Peyronie's plaque or scar better than if that effort were not extended. Since 2002 it is my experience that those men who follow the largest and most aggressive therapy plan will usually get the best results.  For those interested in doing all that can be done to promote healing and repair, the “Large (Best) Plan” is designed for maximum personal treatment.  The Medium Plan is the most popular of the three plans offered by PDI. There is also a Small Plan that is well designed.  It is very common for men to substitute Neprinol in place of the two smaller products, Nattokinase and Serrapeptase in any of the plans. All can be modified to suit your thinking about therapy.

Aggressive Peyronie's treatment is usually best

Peyronie’s disease treatment must be followed aggressively and faithfully because PD is a very difficult and stubborn problem to treat successfully.  For any level of correction of the problem be prepared to spend time and effort to build up the strength of the immune response.  It can be done; I talk to men everyday who are doing it. I would be pleased to answer any specific questions you have about treatment.  I will be happy to give you the best of my thinking about what you might want to do to change the direction your problem is heading.  Simply ask a question at the end of this blog post. I have worked with hundreds and hundreds of men, some mild and some severe, some just a few months and a few more than 10 years old.  I had a pretty bad PD problem until I cured my condition using the procedures found in the book I wrote – the "Peyronie's Disease Handbook" – and the same Alternative Medicine ideas as on the website.  Success against PD is not determined by how bad the problem is at the start of care or how soon you start treatment; it seems to be determined by intensity of effort. You do not have to feel like a victim if you are working to improve your health and immune response against the presence of this foreign tissue. Peyronie’s Disease Institute is available to offer information and suggestions for effective care.  The PDI website offers ideas and information you will not find anywhere.   If you want some help and ideas that you are not now getting, I would be pleased to help you along.

Peyronie’s desease

Peyronie's disease misspelled commonly – Peyronie's desease

Peyronies disease is commonly misspelled as Peyronie's desease. There is so much basic information that people lack concerning this problem that even the name is confusing to some. Other than Peyronies desease, the most common way I find people referring to this problem is to shorten the name and avoid the apostrophe and just call it peyronies, without even capitalizing the first letter, and peyronie, by dropping the final letter altogether.

Just as a basic review, it is important to know that Peyronie's disease is most well known for the Peyronie's plaque or deposit of fibrous tissue (also called a scar) that develops within the deeper layers of tissue of the penis.  This fibrous material often, but not always, will cause a Peyronie's curved penis and pain in the penis.

This Peyronie’s plaque or scar material itself is benign, meaning it is always non-cancerous. It is a common fear among men when first learning they have Peyronies desease to wonder if it could develop later to become something more serious.  This is not the case.  You can rest assured that Peyronie’s disease will not develop or progress into a worse or life-threatening condition – Peyronie’s disease is bad enough.  It does not need any help to make a person’s life miserable all on its own.

Peyronie's disease typically occurs in men around their mid-50s, however,  even teenagers can develop it.  The cause of Peyronie's disease and its natural progression or development are not well understood because the course of the disease is so variable.  In my experience while researching Peyronie’s desease and in discussion with hundred’s of men every years concerning all aspects of this problem, it is rare to find two cases that share a remotely similar history or course; each case is unique in small and large ways.  This great variability is what makes this condition so difficult to diagnose, treat, and live with.  While many researchers believe the Peyronie’s plaque often develops in response to some type of trauma, either minor or significant, that results in localized bleeding within the internal tissue of the penis.

Sexual problems associated with Peyronie’s desease can also be variable, since there are such physical and emotional differences among couples, to say nothing of the variability of sociological factors that also can disrupt a couple's physical and a stressful emotional relationship. The goal of Alternative Medicine Peyronie’s treatment is to keep a man and woman who deal with this problem as happy and whole as possible.   Peyronie's disease surely affects all the people whose life it enters, even if you happen to spell it Peyronie’s desease.
