Hi, I live in Estonia and I have pretty much surfed all the internet and cant seem to find any other Vitamin E supplements other than alpha tocopherol in my country. Right now I'm taking 300 IUs of alpha tocopherol daily, what would you suggest?

Thanks

Depressed 22 year old student thinks he has Peyronie's disease and mentions suicide

Hi Dr.Herazy,
I am young student of just 22. I am feeling some cord-like lesions (around 4) around my penis and the penis is curving just right at the base lesion,the curve is though minor but my penis is loosing girth at the base and I am sure this is peyronies.  I can find the lesions i.e plaque very soft and moving like veins. please help me. Depressed a lot. Went till suicide.

Greetings young man,

I will be happy to help you.

First of all, you do not know you have Peyronie's disease.  You think you have Peyronie's disease.  You could easily be wrong because a few things you mentioned in your email does not fit a good description of this problem. 

1.  You are far younger than average to develop Peyronies.

2.  Seldom does Peyronie's present itself as multiple cords.

3.  Seldom does Peyronies in the early stage appear as a soft lesion, but usually firm to hard. 

4.  Seldom are the Peyronies lesions moveable to any great degree.

5.  Seldom does someone have four separate lesions that are easily located; most men cannot find one. 

6.  You did not mention pain, which is a rather common complaint in the early phase of Peyronie's disease.  

7.  You did not mention trauma, which is usually a large part of Peyronie's disease when someone your age develops it, so this is a missing part of your story that is almost always mentioned from someone like you. 

Based on the above, I have serious doubts your problem is Peyronie's disease.  I suggest the first thing you should do is to go to your local doctor for a complete examination to determine the actual problem that is going on.  My suspicion is that you have a small congenital anomaly or curved penis you were born with that you are just now noticing; that the four cords are indeed veins; and that your overactive imagination is suggesting that you have lost girth.

Lastly, you are more than a penis.  You are an important and valuable person with or without Peyronie's disease.  Anyone who thinks less of you because you might be missing an arm, an eye, a leg, or the use of your penis, would only do so because of immaturity and distorted values on their part, and the fact that they do not know you.  You need to organize your thinking and control your emotions which are now only being guided by fear and poor judgment.   Look around you for just a few moments to see how fortunate you are and how good your life is at this moment, and in the future that you are creating.  Put your personal, moral and spiritual values where they belong .  Realize how good life is regardless of small problems that arise while we live the wonderful life that we choose for ourselves.  

There is a lot that a person like you could do to help yourself heal if it did turn out that you have a case of Peyronie's disease.  That is why we have so many people who come to this website to help their body reverse and correct the Peyronie's problem.  Go to  Testimonials from the Peyronie's Disease Institute to learn about the many people who have used the PDI therapy ideas and eliminated their problem by supporting their natural ability to heal the Peyronie's scar.

Is the Peyronie’s Disease Institute for me?

Dear Dr. Herazy,

I am 65 years old and have had Peyronie's disease for about 6mos. It started out gradually when I noticed some difficulty during sex and a small pea-sized nodule on the top of penis.  It has gradually worsened where sex is impossible and erections during the night are terribly bent and painful.  I have been to a uro doc 3x and have tried various rx with little or no success.

I am an active athlete that participates in 3-4 marathons a year and train almost everyday.   The Peyronies disease problem does not interfere with these activities.

Is PDI for me?

 

Greetings,

I find that many men who appear to be in the peak of health and physical condition, like you,  still develop Peyronie's disease.   I suppose being in top physical condition does not prevent injury from happening.  Just like athletes still strain and sprain ankles and knees, they also injure the delicate tissue of the penis called the tunica albuginea that leads to PD.   Accidents happen to everyone. 

It is your decision to attempt to assist and boost your Peyronies recovery using the Alternative Medicine methods found on the Peyronie's Disease Institute website. You sound like a good candidate for our concepts, but you should only do it if you are prepared to be faithful and follow the concepts well.  Half-hearted efforts usually result in little change.  If you take that same mindset that enables you run a few marathons annually in your 7th decade, then you should do well.    TRH

Would Neprinol work on my Peyronie’s disease?

Hi,

I've had Peyronies now for roughly 10 years. I passed a kidney stone in my 30's and it jammed at the end of my urethra, I squeezed it ,and it passed. But for a month my penis killed me. It eventually shrunk to about 3 inches, from 7  1/4 inches . Ive tried everything. I went all natural. vitamin c, 1000mg , omega 3 1200mg, vitamin e 1000 mg, l-arginine, ginkgo biloba, saw palmetto 1000mg, and flax seed oil, 1000mg gotu kola.  All have helped get at least 6 inches in length back after 10 years.

My love life suffered at first, but we overcame things. I would like to get the other 1 1/4 inches back. Right at the tip, just behind, it curves up around 30 to 35 deg. I can feel the hard plaque still. It just won't soften up any more.

Would Neprinol work, or do you have any suggestions on how to finally rid my self of this man destroying dilemma?  I'm 45 now, I would like to keep going if you know what I mean.

Thanks.  Any suggestions would be a great help.

Greetings,

While I realize you have probably just discovered the Peyronie's Disease Institute website on the internet, my first suggestion is that you stop playing around using different herbs and supplements that have not been shown to be helpful for treating PD.

"Going natural" is not the key to successful Peyronie's treatment; you have to use the right products and use them in the right way.  It looks to me like you just started using anything that might have had some positive things written about it, and hoped it would help your problem.   You have not "used everything."   You have only scratched the surface.   You have approached your problem from the wrong direction and gotten lucky that some of the things you did  might have helped you.   Had you spent that same time, effort and money using the products from the PDI lineup for your Peyronie's treatment I believe you would have been far better off today.

I suggest you get on at least the PDI medium plan along with the PDI gentle Manual Penis Stretching CD video and use them faithfully for a few months.  It is important to use the exact therapies from PDI because not all brands of Alternative Medicine therapies are of the same quality or potency.   You cannot walk into the average vitamin store and expect to get good quality products that will do the job for you.  It is amazing and appalling that many vitamin shops sell such low quality items.

Your question about Neprinol shows that you do not understand how to use Neprinol and that you are again approaching your therapy from the wrong direction.   You need to spend more time reading what is on the PDI website to learn how to go about successful Peyronies treatment. 

When you order from PDI you will receive specific instructions how to use everything that you order for the best possible treatment of Peyronies disease.   Let me know if you have specific questions about helping your problem.   Good luck to you.   TRH   

What about using Kegel exercise as a Peyronie’s treatment?

2 very simple short questions do kegels exercises help peyronies i read it will or may because it's said to be a exercise that women used but it can be used in men and online says it can force more blood into the penis and help with the healing process. The other i have on my mind is i read W What does it mean to "Break Up Scar Tissue" I was reading about castor oil and they said it "breaks up" internal/external scar tissue and breaks them up? Is it different than "reducing" Could you clear up this definition? Thanks, and hope this wasn't too much to ask, but i just didn't want to forget the other question so i just put them both here in one, thanks again Dr. Herazy.


Greetings,

Yes, spend a of of time in our video. "Massage and Exercise" for Peyronie's disease to give you specific measures to assure you do Kegel exercises correctly for PD.   I have advocated Kegels for PD for many years, and used them as part of the Peyronie's disease treatment protocol when I got over it. 

You will have ask those people who use these terms – breaking up and reducing scar tissue – what they mean when they use them.  To me it sounds like careless use of words.   TRH

Peyronie’s treatment safety issue when applying moist heat

Hi Dr. Herazy,

The use of an electrical heating pad was suggested in last month's Peyronie's Disease Institute newsletter for the moist heat therapy. I am curious as to whether or not the immense heat and warmth provided by this electrical pad would be detrimental to the testicles. The pad it hot but does not seem hot enough to scald the penis. Thank you! 

 

Greetings,

Peyronie's treatment safety should be your first concern.  To reduce possibility of excess heat being applied to penis and testicles you should:

     1. Reduce heat setting on the control of the heating pad so that the heat is not "immense" but only comfortably warm
     2. Place a small moist wash cloth between your skin and the heating pad to act as a buffer or spacer, thus reducing heat to the penis
     3. Position yourself so that your testicles are not in contact with the heating pad
     4. Place a dry wash cloth between the scrotum and heating pad to act as a buffer or space, thus reducing heat to the testicles

This suggestion for using an electric heating pad was submitted by one of the PDI Warriors and was presented in our last newsletter as an alternate way to apply moist heat to the shaft of the penis.  The original method that has been suggested by PDI is to use a hot water bottle wrapped with a moist towel and positioned to heat the shaft of the penis.  This method has the safety advantage of staying warm for 15-20 minutes before slowly losing heat.

Thank you for your observation.  TRH

Peyronie’s treatment dosage example
Let us say that you decide you will take PABA at a dose of 2/day. After doing this for a reasonable time – maybe 10-14 days – you do not notice any change in your plaque or scar at the 2/day dose. In this case you probably should consider increasing dosage until your scar responds to your therapy.  The usual method is to simply increase the dosage by one capsule or pill to the total every few weeks until you notice change in the size, shape, density or surface features of the scar.  

The process is made more complicated by the fact that you should be taking multiple therapies, but that is necessary to achieve results.

Peyronies dosage determined by scar response

To know exactly how to modify your dosage it is necessary to compare the size, shape, density and surface features of your scar from the onset of treatment. This critical information enables you to recognize positive changes when they occur. If you do not know how to determine and record the size, shape, density and surface features of your scar you will have to refer to chapter 4 of the “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” to learn about scar measurement.   

All dosage increase is done slowly and carefully over a period of time to allow the body the opportunity to respond to a favorable change in therapy. If the dosage is changed too rapidly or too often it will not be possible to determine what factor caused a favorable response.  If you develop any unusual symptoms or change in body behavior or appearance while increasing dosage, simply stop taking the product for 48 hours after that problem/symptom disappears. Restart after 48 hours or when the new symptoms clear up, using the next lower dose.  From this point forward, once again begin the process of increasing dosage to promote favorable scar change. After reaching a higher dose at which changes are noted in the scar, remain at that dosage level for a few weeks.  Your correct dose is discovered by accompanying improvement in scar size, shape, density or surface quality.

Discuss your PD therapy plan with your family doctor or urologist so he/she is fully aware of what natural Peyronie’s treatment you are following.  You should consider this discussion about dosage strategy after getting final approval from your doctor.

When Peyronie’s Plaque or Scar Not Easily Located

Peyronie's plaque

If you are going to be in charge of your therapy plan, you must know where your Peyronie’s plaque or scar is located. Even though it is not always easy or obvious, it is essential to Peyronie’s disease treatment because our method is to use “scar behavior” as a guide – a bench mark – a barometer – to judge effectiveness of care. Scar behavior is not a matter of curiosity; you MUST know about the scar in as great detail as possible to know if you are making actual progress or not. If you do not know if there is a change in the size, shape, density or surface features of your scar during treatment, then you are guessing – and shame on you because your results will not be as good as if you actually knew what was going on down there.

Before I go into this subject in some detail, I must remind you that the Peyronies scar is best located while the penis is soft or flaccid – meaning not erect. This will be true 99% of the time, so don’t bother to look unless you are flaccid.

Peyronies scars or plaques can be extremely variable in most all aspects. For example, while some men have an obvious scar, others could not find one if their life depended on it. Often, when a scar is not found, but there is still pain and bending or any kind of recent penile distortion, a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease is still made. This diagnosis can be accurately made because the scar that is causing the pain or bending is either:

1. So small – it cannot be found

2. So very soft – it blends into the other tissue and cannot be detected

3. So deep – it cannot be reached or felt easily

4. So large and flat – that the edges are not easily determined, almost like trying to find the edge of a roll of plastic wrap. When it is a large scar – as many of them are – it is something that is so close to you that you do not see it because you are looking far away and cannot see what is under your nose

5. The doctor’s lack of ability, experience or concern when he does the examination – that he simply misses what is actually there if he was better at this kind of thing – yes, I know, it is difficult to imagine but it is true.

When a scar is never found it is because of a combination of two or more of these factors – deep and small, or soft, large and flat, or deep, soft and doctor error, and so on. From my experience with those who have an extremely difficult time locating their scar, it seems that #4 (so large and flat) is often an issue. Keep this in mind when you search your personal landscape while trying to locate your scar.

Finding your Peyronie's plaque

Ultimately, if you have Peyronie’s disease you must begin the search with the attitude the scar is there, and only waiting to be found. Do not start with a negative attitude; you want to have a sense of high anticipation that it will be found within the next few seconds – this will help keep your senses alert. You should use as many different tactics as you can to find your scar(s) because having a good knowledge of your scar situation will help your treatment effort.

Hint: Try to think in terms of your scar being much larger than you have previously imagined. Allow yourself to mentally expand the size of the scar you are looking for. Meaning, if you were looking for a “pea” before, start looking for a “peanut” size structure or even larger. This changes your methods and your outlook about what you can detect.

It seems that lately I have many men reporting that their scars are as large as the length of the shaft. Of these, some are narrow while others are wider. With this in mind, image that your scar is very large. If you are looking for a pea-sized scar it will prevent you from easily finding something much larger.

Do not be discouraged if the scar you have is large since it does not seem that the size has much to do with difficulty or time required to eliminate it. Larger scars can take just as long as smaller scars to treat.

Different way to approach Peyronie's scar

Try this: forget about finding a “scar.” Just try to find something – anything – within the mass of erectile tissue that feels unlike the other tissue. Find something that is unlike the rest of the tissue. When you find it, mark its location with a marker pen of something that will stay on the tissue for a day or two. Go back each day to that area and re-think what you are feeling. You are trying to see if it becomes easier to make sense of it. It could be that you have an unreasonable expectation of what a “scar” should feel like, and you are missing what is really rather obvious only because your expectation is wrong. Really, how could you know what a Peyronie’s plaque feels like if you have never had to do this before? It is a common problem.

Peyronie’s Disease Institute has much success with the methods we present to you. Just because your doctor could not locate your scar does not mean it is not there. And it definitely does not mean that you cannot find it, just because he can’t. As so many men with PD finally come to understand, you must take control of your situation and begin to get well on your own.

I have worked with hundreds and hundreds of men who wanted Peyronie’s treatment. Some of these cases were mild and some were severe, some had it just a few months and a few more than 10 years old. I had a bad Peyronie’s disease problem until I cured my condition using the procedures found on the PDI website. You will not feel like a victim once you start working to improve your health and immune response against the presence of this foreign tissue.

Protection for Peyronie’s Disease during Intercourse

Girth enhancement rings stabilize Peyronies

Since 2002 Peyronie’s Disease Institute has made several different products available to our customers that offer important penile protection while still allowing sexual intercourse to take place. One of these is the girth enhancement ring or sleeve, please see Girth Enhancement Ring.

Using this uncomplicated device provides a level of support that greatly reduces the possibility of re-injury of the penis during intercourse. For many men this simple and inexpensive device is essential in a couple’s ability to engage in sex at all – for many men the added support is needed to make penetration.

The basic girth enhancement sleeve is a thick but flexible tube that is open at both ends, made of very soft and stretchy silicone material. The penis is slipped into the tube and the glans or head of the penis sticks out at the other end for full sexual contact. With this added support the shaft is less likely to be re-injured by sudden bending or collapse.

Even if the cause of Peyronie’s disease in your case was not trauma, it is critical that you do all you can to not injure your penis during sex if you have PD. The following deformities present a real or potential weakness of the shaft of the penis that can easily get re-injured during sexual activity, and therefore will benefit from the use of girth enhancement sleeve:

1. Twist

2. Curve

3. Bend

4. Dent, dink, nick, depression, impression or filling error

5. Bottleneck deformity

6. Hourglass deformity

Any of these Peyronies deformities is weakest at the area of the greatest distortion, or thinnest part of the shaft, that can suddenly bend, fold or collapse during insertion or while thrusting. This is the area over which the girth enhancement sleeve should be worn.

Dealing with a penis that is weak in one small area is like having an ankle that is weak because of an earlier injury, making it susceptible to re-injury. Also, just like a sprained ankle, each penile re-injury occurs more easily and gets progressively worse. The best approach to take is to not allow additional injury to take place so the tissue remains as healthy and strong as possible. For the ankle the treatment is to wear a support and to slow down so that you do not hurt yourself again. The same with Peyronie’s disease.

A valuable second benefit to the girth ring support is the additional thickness or girth it adds to the penis that can make up for the lost dimension that many men experience.

I urge any man whose penis is distorted by Peyronie’s disease – known as a Peyronie’s penis – to investigate the girth enhancement sleeve to provide protection during sexual activity to avoid re-injury and worsening of his problem.

Communication Vital for Peyronie’s Teatment Success

Saying you do not know might be the wisest thing you can do

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute has been working with men since 2002, offering the most effective therapy ideas and products we can find, and helpful information about successful Alternative Medicine treatment of Peyronie’s disease.

Usually within the first month of Peyronie’s treatment a man will enter into a critical point of his Peyronie’s treatment when he can become confused and doubtful. Many men become unsure if they are using the correct treatment products or using them in the right way. Many times men want to change their plan but do not know how to do it. If this describes how you are feeling about your treatment plan, you must let me know your questions and I will do my best to help you with all of this.

Please do not hesitate to send an email asking for help and information. I would be happy to answer your questions, and offer insights and ideas gained after successfully treating my own PD, writing two books on this subject, and working with nearly a thousand men from around the world with their Peyronie’s treatment.

Viagra Peyronie’s Disease Connection

Greater Viagra use and increase of Peyronie’s disease

 

In a 2002 article in the International Journal of Impotence Research about possible causes of Peyronie’s disease, authored by Sikka and Hellstrom of Tulane University, these two medical researchers observed that with the increased use of Viagra, Peyronie’s disease also increased.

In my work with the Peyronie’s Disease Institute, while corresponding with six to 10 men daily who have Peyronie’s disease concerning various aspects of their problem, I have also made this observation – that with greater use of Viagra, Peyronie’s diseases clearly increases.  The difference between Drs. Sikka and Hellstrom’s and my explanation why Peyronie’s disease is becoming more common as the use of Viagra – and other PDE5 drugs like Cialis and Levitra – increases around the world.

Their explanation, quoting Drs. Sikka and Hellstrom’s report:

“Peyronie's disease usually affects 13% of males between the ages of 40 and 70, and the number of patients with such lesions have increased since the advent of oral sildenafil (Viagra, Pfizer) either because more men are becoming manifest and/or not hesitant anymore to come to clinics for such evaluations.”

In other words, these two Tulane researchers say the only reason PD appears to be increasing is that more men are willing to talk about it, now that men are talking more about erectile dysfunction with the greater awareness brought about with the frequent TV and magazine ads about this problem and drug solution of it.

While they offer the simple explanation that because men are becoming less hesitant to talk about their sexual problems, they assume more men are inclined to enter medical clinics asking for help – like asking for a prescription for Viagra, Cialis and Levitra.  That is certainly a possible explanation of perhaps some merit.   But that does not match my experience in talking with men who actually  have Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie's and Viagra

Men I talk to about starting Peyronie’s treatment still ask about how the mailing package will be labeled and if the return address will mention “Peyronie’s disease,” lest their letter carrier will learn they have PD.   I am asked if the credit card statement will mention that their therapy products are for treatment of PD, lest someone at the credit card company will learn they have PD.   I am asked by men how to explain the problem of Peyronie’s disease to a new girl friend so that she will not be scared away from a relationship with someone who has a disease of the penis.  I talk with men who do not want to talk at work about their PD lest someone overhears the conversation.  I learn from men that the worse thing about PD is not the pain associated with the scar development, but the loss of penile girth and length – something that most men would seem hesitant to tell the world about.

I do not doubt for an instant that men are more relaxed and casual about admitting to a problem with erectile dysfunction, and more willing to ask for a Viagra prescription than they were a few years ago.  This is a more sexually open society – for good or for bad.  Yet, I doubt that men are just as willing to admit that they have Peyronie’s disease in which their penis is shockingly smaller than average or that can be so distorted as to be incapable of entry to engage sexual intercourse.

Erectile dysfunction is one problem related to advancing age that perhaps has some dignity related to it and hope of easy drug solution, but Peyronie’s disease might not be seen in the same way since it is associated with permanent deformity and reduction of the size of the male organ.

My opinion is that Drs. Sikka and Hellstrom are reluctant to discuss the possibility that these PDE5 drugs sporadically, irregularly and without warning cause severe injury to the tunica albuginea by extensive over-inflation of the corpora cavernosa of the penis.  The mechanism of this possible route of injury was discussed on 8-17-09 in the Peyronie’s Disease blog under the title, Peyronie’s Disease Treatment and Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, and again on 8-1-10 under the title Viagra, Cialis and Levitra Use with Peyronie’s Disease.

These doctor’s hesitance to discuss or speculate that the increase of PD parallels the increase use of these drugs due to yet another drug side-effect of yet another group of drugs itself can be speculated upon.   Each man with PD must make up his own mind if this possibility makes sense to him, and if it is further reasonable to avoid the use of these drugs if he wishes to avoid further injury to his penis.

Beta-Blockers and Peyronie’s Disease

What is a beta-blocker?

Anyone who has looked for a cause of Peyronie’s disease will eventually read about a drug called a beta-blocker.   I will not bore you with the technical aspects of the chemistry and physiology of beta-blockers, but only what might be important to you as someone who suffers with PD.

Beta-blockers are prescription drugs used to treat a wide variety of conditions, but most often heart-related disorders like abnormal and irregular heart rhythms, chest pain, and the immediate symptoms of a heart attack, as well as to lower the heart rate and reduce the force of heart contraction.  They are available in tablet, liquid and injection forms.  Beta-blockers can also be used to treat migraine headaches, social phobias, hypertension, muscle tremors related to anxiety and/or an overactive thyroid gland. Timolol is a particular beta-blocker that is prescribed as an eye drop, used in the glaucoma treatment since this beta-blocker reduces the pressure of fluid inside the eye. Beta blockers have been called "the musicians underground drug" because they can be used for performance anxiety.

Some of the more popular beta-blockers and their brand names are: acebutolol (Sectral), atenolol (Tenormin), bisoprolol (Zebeta), metoprolol (Lopressor, Lopressor LA, Toprol XL), nadolol (Corgard), and timolol (Blocadren).

Inderal is perhaps the most commonly prescribed beta-blocker.  This beta-blocker affects the heart and circulation particularly well.  It is frequently used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure), heart rhythm disorders, tremors, angina (chest pain), and other heart or circulatory conditions. It is also used to treat or prevent heart attack, and to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.

If you have taken a medication for any of these problems you might have taken a beta-blocker and were not warned about it.  This might be worth checking out.

If you know you have taken a beta-blocker in the past and now have Peyronie’s disease, this might be a possible explanation for your PD and you might want to discuss this with the doctor who prescribed it for you.

If you are currently taking a beta-blocker you need to know that this category of medication should not be stopped suddenly, since this can bring about an attack of the original condition – sometimes more severe than the original problem – plus a rapid and dangerous rise of the blood pressure.  If beta-blocker use should be stopped or reduced, this should only be done under close medical supervision.  The best way to continue your Peyronie’s disease treatment is to keep your doctor informed and aware of what you are doing with Alternative Medicine.  You should try to get him or her to be a part of your natural Peyronie’s disease treatment.

Peyronie’s disease connection to beta-blockers

All beta-blocker drugs list Peyronie's disease as a possible side effect.  This association has been borne out in communication with men in my work with the Peyronie’s Disease Institute.

Possible Peyronie’s Cause: Catheter and Cystoscope Trauma

Unrelated cancer surgery possible cause of Peyronie’s disease

Debate and confusion persist about a Peyronie’s cause, no matter how much time passes.

We who deal with Peyronies on a daily basis know that not much research effort is given to this problem we share.  Medical research into the cause of Peyronie’s disease is often directed toward a genetic quirk or biochemical flaw within the cellular structure – that can be treated with drugs.  In spite of a hundred years of failure looking for a pharmacologically treatable Peyronie’s disease cause, one obvious area has not received much interest: trauma.

No one denies that trauma is at least a common secondary cause of Peyronie’s disease, if not the primary cause.  Yet, there is nothing in the medical literature that addresses the great amount of totally preventable trauma delivered while under medical care.  It is my opinion that doctors can be a Peyronie’s cause during the sometimes brutal and hidden trauma of male catheterization and cystoscopic examination that occurs before, during or after many types of surgery, like bladder or penis surgery.

Since 2002 when I started the Peyronie’s Disease Institute I have communicated with a host of surgical nurses.  They advise me that during surgery, while a man is under general anesthesia and is catheterized or given a urethral scope examination for any reason the process is often rushed and aggressive since the patient is not awake or aware.

To understand the potential problem, consider that the male urinary opening at the tip of the penis is a slit that averages 0.15 to 0.20 inches (4-5 mm) in length, compared to a 9 mm catheter or cystoscope that is put into that slit.  .

The potential for abuse that can lead to Peyronie’s disease exists because the size of the cystoscope used for men ranges from between the thickness of a pencil up to approximately 9mm.  In addition, many cystoscopes have extra tubes to guide other instruments for surgical procedures to treat urinary problems.  That is a lot of material that goes up that little passage way.  Sometimes twists and narrowed areas of the male urethra are encountered that prevent passage, when the catheter or cystoscope will be forced deeper by a surgeon who encounters difficulty.  This, I have been told, is a common problem that is not much talked about.

Nurses get into big trouble, and jeopardize job security, for revealing what they see and hear in the operating room.

It is my speculation that unnecessary injury related to forceful and rushed catheterization or cystoscope insertion is the reason many men develop PD that they cannot otherwise explain.  This opinion is based on the number of men I speak to who tell me they cannot account for their PD based on penile trauma.  Of these men who recall no direct penile trauma, when I ask about any kind of surgery that took place within a year or so before developing PD, at least 95% tell me they were either catheterized or received a cystoscopic examination for one reason or another.

For this reason I speculate these men were traumatized during their catheterization or cystoscopic procedure sufficiently to injure their tunica albuginea enough to cause Peyronie’s disease.

One example within Peyronie’s disease research to support this theory of an association between surgical catheterization and cystoscopic examination and PD, comes from the Urology Service of the Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, in June of 2010 published an article in Urology Times titled, “Peyronie’s Disease Following Radical Prostatectomy:  Incidence and Predictors.”

This search for a cause of Peyronie's disease must consider that for men in their 50s, both prostate cancer and Peyronie's disease are fairly common.  The purpose of this project was to determine if there was an actual link between those men who had a radical prostatectomy (RP) operation for prostate cancer and Peyronie’s disease.

They reviewed their sexual medicine database from 2002 to 2008.  They isolated men who received a RP as the only form of treatment for a well-defined and localized prostate cancer, looking for those who developed Peyronies within three years after their RP surgery and compared this group to those men who did not develop Peyronies.  They studied 1,011 such men, of whom 15.9% PD – a number higher than the general population.   They found that the average time for a man to develop PD after his RP was 14 months, give or take a month.   The average curvature was determined to be 31 degrees, +/- 17 degrees.   They further found that younger men (average of 59 years) who had a RP operation were more likely to develop PD afterward, than older men (average of 60 years), and that white race men (18%) were more likely to develop PD than non-white rave men (7%).    Also, they discovered that erectile function after RP surgery did not predict the later development of PD.

Because men who experienced sexual dysfunction after RP were found to develop Peyronie’s disease more frequently than the general population, the study suggested that this group should be routinely evaluated for PD.

This study, written by R. Tal, M. Heck and others, speculates that the Peyronie’s cause for these men might be somehow related to their prostate cancer.

Because it is common for the medical community to primarily delve deeply and intently into the biochemical and hereditary factors for a cause of Peyronie's disease,  without consideration of more simple and obvious reasons, they do not much evaluate for trauma.   Surgical trauma is a possible Peyronie’s disease cause for those with a history of prior radical prostatectomy (because of the cystoscopic and catheterization procedures they receive), but apparently is not investigated since this would cause a medicolegal problem for the medical community and little reason to use medication.

My Penis is Curved

How to straighten a penis

What a shock when you realize, “My penis is curved.  How did that happen, and what is going on down there?"  And the most important question to Google, "How to straighten my penis?”

While there are several other causes of a curved penis to suddenly happen, the most common one, and the most difficult one to deal with is Peyronie’s disease.   Peyronie’s disease is a condition that occurs in about 6-10% of men over the age of 40 (although it can affect teenagers and men in their early 20s) in which a dense and thick mass of fibrous tissue, called a Peyronie’s plaque or scar, is found within the tunica albuginea layer on the inside of the penis.  The presence of a nodule or band of fibrous tissue under the skin of the penis will prevent the normal expansion of the chambers of the penis during an erection.  This causes the erection to be distorted resulting in a curve, bend, hinge, hourglass or bottleneck distortion.

To assist you to determine if you have PD, please visit Peyronie’s symptoms and check out some of the Peyronie’s pictures of curved penis.  It is necessary for anyone who thinks he might have Peyronie’s disease to go to his doctor to have a complete examination so an accurate diagnosis can be made. Do not make the mistake to think you can self-diagnose this problem.

It is important to remember that the problem of Peyronie’s disease is not that you have a curved penis.  The problem is actually the Peyronie’s scar that is present within the deep tissue of the tunica albuginea causing incomplete filling of the penile chambers, resulting in the curved penis that got your attention.  For this reason any treatment that is directed solely at trying to make the penis straight without removing or eliminating the PD plaque will not be successful.

While the Peyronie’s Disease Institute does not take a position against Peyronie’s surgery, we feel too many men resort to penis surgery far too soon before trying conservative treatment.   If a man knows he has Peyronie’s disease he should also know the problem is that his body produced excessive scar tissue or plaque in response to a small injury or inflammation of the deep penile tissue layer.  What does he assume will happen to that same tissue when a surgeon cuts that same tissue and also tugs on it, stretches it, and put stitches into it during the course of Peyronie’s surgery?  There is a very good chance that more excessive scar tissue will result.  This is why many urologists and surgeons take a position against all Peyronie’s surgery.

Since 2002 the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has educated men about the use of Alternative Medicine to assist the body to heal the Peyronie’s plaque.  Fifty percent of men naturally recover from Peyronie’s disease without any help or outside intervention; the problem just goes away on its own like any other health problem should.  Our approach is to assist each man to enable his body to heal naturally like those in that lucky 50% group.

So if you are one of us who has said in shock, “My penis is curved,” you now know what to do about it.  Learn more about Peyronie’s disease treatment with Alternative Medicine. Another good source of information is the Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.

Potaba and Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

Potaba for Peyronie's treatment based on PABA, a vitamin

PABA, or para-aminobenzoic acid, with a formula of H2NC6H4CO2H, is a white crystalline substance that is slightly water soluble.  POTABA, used to treat Peyronie's disease, is simply PABA with a molecule of potassium added to it.

PABA has been referred to as Vitamin Bx because it is an intermediate step in the bacterial manufacturing of folate or folic acid in the intestinal tract.  Some bacteria in the human intestinal tract, such as E. coli, require PABA for proper metabolism. Humans require folate since we lack the enzymes to convert PABA to folate, hence it is made available via the bacterial flora.  Sulfonamide drugs are similar to PABA in their chemical structure, and their antibacterial activity is due to their ability to interfere with the conversion of PABA to folate by the enzyme dihydropteroate synthetase.  In this way bacterial growth is restricted through folate deficiency without effect on human cells.

Medical use of Potaba (potassium para-aminobenzoate)

Potaba inhibits abnormal fibroblast proliferation, thus it can reduce formation of scar material early after injury.  It is speculated that this POTABA anti-inflammatory activity is dependent on initial biotransformation that starts with granulocytes that are stimulated through the initial injury.  It also inhibits abnormal fibroblast proliferation, acid mucopolysaccharide and glycosaminoglycan secretion that occur during the normal inflammatory process.

POTABA has been used to treat a variety of conditions characterized by chronic inflammation and fibrosis; this list includes scleroderma, dermatomyositis, morphea, pulmonary fibrosis and Peyronie's disease.

A POTABA research study was conducted by Carson who retrospectively reviewed 32 patients who were treated with 4,000 Mg of Potaba three times daily, for at least three months and later were followed for an average of 14.4 months.   Carson reported reduction of penile pain in 44% of those studied,  plaque or scar size reduction in 56%, and improvement of penile angulation in 58%. Complete reversal of penile distortion and angulation occurred in 26% of those studied. The average interval to improvement was 4.2 months, and younger patients with a shorter duration of disease were more likely to respond to therapy.  Even thought Carson’s study did not have controls, it suggests a possible role for POTABA in the medical therapy of Peyronie's disease.

Unfortunately, the results of Carson’s retrospective and uncontrolled research were not reported as an intent-to-treat study.  Further, the number of research subjects who started therapy but stopped because of severe abdominal symptoms prior to three months has never been disclosed.

Because of the expense of POTABA, the need to take POTABA three or more times daily, and frequent occurrence of severe gastrointestinal side-effects (burning pain, abdominal cramping, and bowel irritability0, make it very difficult for the average man with Peyronie’s disease to follow the treatment guidelines for even a short time.  Yet in order to be effective, the length of POTABA therapy is variable, but sometimes lasting 12-24 months of active care.

Medical use of PABA

When a single potassium molecule is added to PABA, it results in what is called a potassium salt; this combination of potassium and PABA is called POTABA.  It is used as a drug against fibrotic skin disorders, and as such it can be used in Peyronie's disease treatment.  PABA is also occasionally used to treat Irritable bowel syndrome to and related gastrointestinal symptoms, and in nutritional epidemiological studies to assess the completeness of 24-hour urine collection for the determination of urinary sodium, potassium, or nitrogen levels.

Despite the absence of any recognized syndromes of PABA deficiency in humans, many benefits are claimed for PABA as a nutritional supplement.  PABA is said to improve fatigue, irritability, depression, weeping eczema (moist eczema), scleroderma (premature hardening of skin), a patchy pigment loss in skin called vitiligo, and premature gray hair.

Peyronie’s disease:  POTABA or PABA?

The first Peyronie’s treatment work involved PABA, the vitamin.  When this was shown to be successful, work was then done to show that POTABA, the drug, could be more successful.  The interest is working with POTABA – the drug – was greater than with PABA – the vitamin – because the drug is more profitable and is easier to control use and distribution through the medical profession.

The reason PDI promotes the use of PABA for Peyronie’s disease treatment is because it has almost no side effects, is much less expensive to use, does not require a prescription and it combines well with other Alternative Medicine therapies.

Diagnosis of Peyronie’s Disease

Poor welcome to the world of Peyronie’s disease

It seems that most men cannot clearly or fully understand the scope of the problem when they are first given a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease.

Obviously, when a man goes to the doctor for the first time it is because he is having a problem of some type with “his plumbing.”   It might be the sudden or gradual appearance of pain, a lump or nodule, curved penis or distortion of some type, or reduced sexual ability, that brings him to see his doctor or surf the Internet. While he knows he is having a few Peyronie's disease  symptoms that were not there until recently, he is surprised to learn there is actually a medical condition that causes his problem.

After being given the diagnosis, a common first mental question often is, “If there is this problem that can so cruelly affect a man, why on earth have I never heard of Peyronie’s disease before today?

It has been recently estimated that after the age of 40, there are about four to six cases of Peyronie’s disease for every 100 men around the world.  That is a lot of men and a lot of cases of Peyronie’s disease.  For such a common condition, why is it that no one seems to know about PD until it is too late?

There are a few answers to this question, and they are all important to any man dealing with Peyronie’s disease:

  1. No one likes to admit he has a problem, or is less than perfect, when it comes to his sexual apparatus and his sexual ability.
  2. No one wants to the subject of teasing or to be pitied.
  3. There is often such social restriction limiting discussion of sexual matters that prevents open and free information that limits the discussion of Peyronie’s disease or similar topics.

This is indeed unfortunate because if there was more knowledge of Peyronie’s disease there probably would be less of it. Additionally, if there was more knowledge and comfort  discussing this problem we would probably be a lot closer to a genuine Peyronie’s treatment than we are now.

If more young men were given more information, such as how trauma is associated with the start of Peyronie’s disease in over half of the cases, it is more likely that reasonable caution and defensive measures would be taken.  It is very difficult to avoid a problem if you do not know it exists. This is why in “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” I spend a fair amount of time describing how men should talk to their sons about this problem.

To learn more about Peyronie’s disease, please go to the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website for information about cause, progression and Peyronie's natural treatment.

Three simple steps for Peyronie’s help:

1. Learn about your Peyronies problem. You were told  next to nothing about Peyronies disease by the doctor who gave you the diagnosis. You are on the internet right now looking for information about what you can do to help your Peyronie’s disease.   Get clear and concise information from a doctor who had Peyronie;s disease.  I put my personal experiences and how I recovered from PD in a book I wrote called “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.” This book gives you all the information about day-to-day treating and living with Peyronie’s disease you will need. The information found in this book is different in many ways than the information on our website; there is no duplication of information between the book and the website. Another book that will help you tremendously is “Peyronie’s Disease & Sex” that covers all aspects of this complex subject. Get help through education.

2. Start the most aggressive therapy plan you are comfortable following so that you will get your best results. If you are interested in doing all that you can to help yourself, then perhaps you could consider using what is called the “Large (Best) Plan” for personal treatment. The “Medium (Better) Plan” is perhaps the most popular of the three plans. There is a “Small (Good) Plan” that is also 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. These products and plans are found at Peyronie’s treatment products.   All plans can be modified, by subtracting or adding, to suit your personal Peyronie’s disease treatment philosophy.

Or, you can design your own therapy plan using the information found on this website. You do not have to use any of these model plans, they are only examples – but they make sense and they have helped hundreds of men improve their Peyronies plaque and reduce the bent penis of Peyronie’s disease.

3. Stop being discouraged. Sign up for the Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Forum blog and get motivated, inspired, educated and reminded that everyday men around the world are actually beating their Peyronies problem using the Alternative Medicine methods of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute.

As you will soon see, the PDI website is full of exciting and helpful research information about Peyronie’s disease treatment you have never seen before. You will also see this site is different because it gives you the answers you have been looking for. But you must work along with the PDI guidelines in order to get the kind of results you will read about.

We strongly suggest you get all of your Peyronie’s disease natural treatment products and supplements from PDI. The products we use have been selected after years of experimentation because they are special, and a prime reason for the results our customers receive. The PDI therapy concept and strategy are built around the therapy products available from PDI, and no others. Peyronie’s Disease Institute only uses what are called “pharmaceutical grade” products, which are of a higher quality and purity level, and pass rigorous tests to guarantee that what is on the label is contained in each capsule. Time and again we see that when men switch over to PDI products and follow our instructions, good things start to happen. Our therapy products have been used successfully in hundreds of treatment programs. Most people understand that it is a poor time to experiment and sample bargain products while they are attempting to repair a serious health problem like Peyronie’s disease.

With over 31,000 nutritional products available on the worldwide market, this subject is confusing. Many of them – more than you would believe – do not contain what they are supposed to contain. They have far fewer – or none – of the nutrients you need to do the big job in front of you.

Peyronie’s Disease Institute cannot answer your questions or help you with your therapy plan if we do not have knowledge, experience or confidence with any “foreign” therapies you might decide to use on your own. On the PDI website we clearly state, “Sorry, but due to the volume of emails PDI receives and with limited hours available in a day, we can only answer questions from PDI customers. Purchase your therapy products only from PDI so you have full access to the vast experience and careful assistance available to our customers. If you purchase inferior grade or questionable bargain products elsewhere, you will have to rely upon that source for whatever help you might need later.”

Please email me any questions you might have about treatment of PD with Alternative Medicine, like how to use vitamin E or the best advice about those mechanical penis stretchers.   I will be happy to help you in any way that I can.

Peyronie’s Disease and a Man Whose House is on Fire

Peyronie's Disease and a Man Whose House is on Fire

Send This Page To A Friend

Here's a little story from the Peyronie's Disease Institute that expresses the thoughts and frustrations of someone with Peyronie's disease:

A man came home one day to find his house was on fire. He ran to his neighbor's house and yelled, “Hurry, call the fire department. My house is on fire!”

The neighbor came to the widow and replied in a professional voice, “Be calm, and try not to worry. Research shows that 50% of house fires go out by themselves, so in my opinion there is really no need to bother the fire department. I suggest you just wait and see if you will be one of the lucky ones.”

Peyronie's disease, a curved penis and Peyronie's plaque is an emergency for most men that requres immediate action

The first man replied, “Are you kidding? 50/50 odds are terrible! If I'm in the wrong 50% group, I could lose everything. I can’t take a chance like that. The fire is small now and it’s on the first floor, so maybe I can do something to take care of it. If you won’t call the fire department for me, then I'll just use a garden hose to help myself.”

The neighbor again casually replied, “I advise against it. There have been no double-blind or cross-over scientific studies to show that a man with a single garden hose can consistently put out a small house fire. Some studies have shown that it works, but then again there are other studies that show that it doesn’t work. There is so much controversy about this subject that the experts advise against doing anything but waiting to see if the fire goes out by itself. I think we need more studies in this area. I really can't explain why some indicate that it does help, and others show it does not. I hope you understand that I don't want to go out on a limb and recommend something that might not actually work. With no official agreement how to handle your situation, to protect my reputation for always being right, and to prevent you from suing me for giving you false hope that you can put out your own fire, I am going to suggest you do nothing right now. That’s about the safest advice for me to give to you.  I know your house is on fire, and all of that must be terribly inconvenient for you, but I have to protect myself you know. Can't you just wait a while longer for more research to actually prove your garden hose idea is correct? Research is being done right now to develop a new chemical that can be used to put out small house fires. Of course, any new chemical will be expensive and will only be available through authorized outlets that will have to charge a lot of money for the product, but in time, it could be helpful in a situation like this.”

The first man shouted in a panic, “Are you crazy? My house is on fire right now, and it is getting worse by the minute. I need help right now. I can’t wait for your studies and your research to prove anything, and I can’t wait for any new chemical. If some of the studies show that the garden hose will put out a house fire, or at least control it to some degree, then why shouldn't I give it a try? I would be a fool to not give it a try because it might be just the right thing to do. I know — maybe I can get a few garden hoses going and even increase the odds it will work. Maybe it will completely put out my fire. If it works, look at what I have gained – if it doesn’t work, who cares, at least I tried.”

The neighbor then explained to the worried and agitated man, “Not to worry: Be patient. You know, you are really getting worked up. If your home is destroyed – and becomes useless to you – you can always get a contractor to fix it. Think of it as your back-up solution. If your house becomes useless, just get it repaired. I've heard that some of the houses turn out pretty good.”

The first man snapped back, “You are nuts! Why should I let this fire get so bad that I need a contractor? Some contractors are better than others; what if I get a bad one? I’ve heard horror stories about dealing with a bad contractor. What if there are problems with the contractor's work? What if my house isn’t as good after his repair work as before the fire started? Even good contractors sometimes have problems with their work that even they can’t explain. I could be stuck for the rest of my life with bad results. No. Common sense tells me the best thing I can do now is to protect what I have and try to avoid dealing with any contractor if I can.”

The neighbor leaned against his doorway and told the frustrated man, “I guess the garden hose idea could do no real harm. But you could be wasting water, you know. Be careful that you do not use more water than you actually need. Now, I've read some studies about using too much water to put out a fire, and… ”

The first man didn’t hear the neighbor’s last bit of logic. He was now running back to his burning house and the garden hose. He shouted back to the neighbor, “Maybe you would feel differently if this was your house on fire. I’ve got to get busy and try to help myself if you can't offer me better help than that. I have to do what makes sense to me, even if there is no research to prove me right.” The man whose house was on fire picked up his hose and started working with it. He felt less stressed as he got busy doing all he could in a bad situation. Who knows, maybe he even put the fire out.

Peyronie’s Disease and a History Lesson

Peyronies Disease and Important Lessons from History

This discussion is about a terrible sickness that appears in the news occasionally, with an interesting application to Peyronie's disease natural treatment.

Throughout history great epidemics have occurred, killing huge numbers in a given population. However, it is rare to find evidence that an epidemic – no matter how devastating – killed an entire population.  In fact, it is not known if an entire population has been lost to a disease epidemic. This is a simple fact that has great importance to Peyronie's treatment.

That the human race survived the ravages of many deadly epidemics tells us something about ourselves, and our ability to defend against disease and heal tissue.  You must remember that in every epidemic that has ever occurred some of us recover after becoming sick − or never even get sick at all − while others become severely ill and die. From this we learn our bodies, for the most part, do a great job of defending, mending and repairing, even in the face of great health challenges.

As an example, a smallpox epidemic will typically kill 30-50% of the people who are exposed. Yet, did you ever wonder if a small pox epidemic is so bad that 30-50% of a population will die, what about the other 50-70% of people who survive the small pox epidemic? Why do these 50-70% survive? Why don’t 80%, 90% or all of those exposed to smallpox die from it? What is so special about the 50-70% who survive? What do they do, or not do, that keeps them from contracting the disease or dying? No one knows exactly how those who survive such an ordeal do it. But, we can at least assume that those 50-70% who survive an epidemic have a healthier immune system and were able to maintain better function of body chemistry and physiology. There is another way to say it that sounds a little silly, but is true: We can generalize that people do not get sick after exposure to a disease like smallpox because they are healthier than those who get the disease. Some bodies function better in some way to heal, repair and survive than the others who get sick, or die. The same can be said of any health problem, even Peyronie’s disease – if your body is working at its highest level, you stand a better chance of avoiding or surviving a health problem. This is where the PDI theory about PD comes in.

We all have scars on our body. Sometimes a minor injury heals with a major scar, while on the other hand, some major injuries heal without a scar. Some scars from childhood injuries fade as we get older. These are important points to consider, since scar formation of the tunica albuginea of the penis is central to the problem of PD. If scar tissue doesn’t always develop after injury, and is reversible in 50% of the men with PD, what about you? Do you really have to be stuck with a scar and a permanently bent penis? Our interest at PDI is to determine why this reversal of scarring happens in 50% of PD cases, and how to assist scar reversal for more PD sufferers. We think we are on the right track with our efforts, and we offer our ideas to you for your consideration.

We all have seen from our everyday observations and experience that scarring is not always inevitable and is sometimes reversible. At the Peyronie's Disease Institute we simply attempt to create a favorable environment in which scarring of the tunica albuginea is minimized to the best of each man’s ability, and maybe even eliminated, by enhancing and supporting the normal healing response of the tissue to injury. Remember:  no epidemic killed everyone, so we know our body has an amazing ability to repair and heal.   History proves this to us.

Just as we have seen from history that not everyone who is exposed in an epidemic of a fatal disease gets it, PDI is working with the theory that the scar of Peyronie's disease might be avoided or minimized if you can improve your tissue health and immune response.    If you work a bit to increase your ability to repair and heal your problem, you might even be able to avoid Peyronie's disease surgery, wouldn't that be nice?

Anything you do for your Peyronie’s disease – even if what you do is to do nothing – is a choice and a calculated gamble.

Peyronie's Disease Institute's opinion is that it is smart to use the best of what is known and available while the truth about PD is still being debated. If what you do makes a difference to your Peyronie's disease, look what you gained. If your Peyronie's disease natural treatment effort does not help your PD, you did not harm yourself and chances are the various therapies at least benefited your overall health and well-being.

Commentary:  Standard medical "wait-and-see treatment" of Peyronie's disease, click Peyronie's Disease and Man Whose House is on Fire.

This website offers a base of information to create a personal treatment plan with reasonable possibility to improve your opportunity for success, based on the synergy of using multiple therapies yet with minimal risk since none of these treatments are inherently dangerous. With so many simple, safe and sensible things that often work, even though none of them have full scientific proof and acceptance, you have a reasonable chance to increase your tissue’s ability to heal and repair your PD. Even if these therapies do not help your PD, there is only remote chance any of them could do harm. This is not true of medical therapies. Peyronie's Disease Institute uses therapies that are refinements of substances normally and naturally found in your tissues – vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids. None of the therapies we propose are foreign or invasive in nature.

If you are successful in supporting your health sufficiently, and your tissue responds by healing your PD – you win. If you are not successful in supporting your health sufficiently or early enough to adequately make the changes or improvement in your PD as you hoped – you don't lose. There are no known side-effects to the elements of this treatment plan, and you improved your eating habits, improved your nutrition input, exercised more, probably removed some plaque from your arterial walls, probably lowered your blood pressure, probably noticed that your blood circulation was improved and your hands and feet are not cold as they were before, and probably witnessed general improvement in your overall health or elimination of your curved penis – you don't lose.

Peyronie's treatment and your odds for success

If after following an aggressive and scientifically based alternative program of care your PD does not respond, as can certainly happen, then Peyronie's disease surgery can still be performed. It seems logical that the PDI approach to managing PD is a safe way to use the time that the average MD would suggest that you do nothing to help yourself. Most conservative thought would be favorable to spending a few dollars and reasonable effort to reduce the need for an eventual surgical procedure. The person with a cold takes vitamin C to increase the function of his immune response, and expects to shorten the time he is ill. The person who has a broken bone and takes a calcium supplement, or the person who is anemic and takes some extra iron, or wants to build up some additional muscle tissue and takes some extra protein, is thought to be sensible and intelligent.

The Peyronie's Disease Institute tactic of aggressively using widely acceptable nutritional information and science in a Peyronie's disease treatment plan is not much different. These measures have been reported to improve the ability of the body to heal and repair PD in certain studies — and could increase the odds you could be in the 50% group that eventually recovers from Peyronie's disease.

Peyronie’s Disease Treatment and Vitamin E

 

Peyronie’s vitamin E dosage

The usual Peyronie’s disease vitamin E dosage advice from a medical doctor will be to “take no more than 400 IU of vitamin E a day.”   Sometimes this number will be doubled to 800 IU daily by some doctors who are more aggressive with their recommendation.  All of this is of valuable interest because vitamin E is the most commonly recommended non-drug Peyronie’s disease treatment, and very often it is the only non-drug Peyronie’s disease treatment that will be discussed.

Since vitamin E is available in both a synthetic form and a naturally occurring organic form, which form you use determines how much you can safely take.  Eight different members of the vitamin E family, four known as tocopherols and four known as tocotrienols, make up the vitamin E family.  A balanced diet – very difficult to achieve these days – contains all eight members of the vitamin E group.  The most widely found member is known as gamma tocopherol, which works to eliminate nitrogen free radicals and is a very effective anti-inflammatory agent.  Tocotrienols are primarily found in the skin and subdermis where they protect against UV and free radical damage.

Most vitamin E supplements contain only alpha tocopherol because it was thought that only this single part of the family of eight is the most important for Peyronies disease treatment. In fact, most vitamin E skin products contain a small amount of synthetic dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate.  This means that they contain only one of the eight members of the vitamin E family in the less effective synthetic form. Only products which supply the complete vitamin E family and are particularly rich in gamma tocopherol and tocotrienols in their natural and unesterified form contribute to accelerated wound healing and minimized scarring.  This is why PDI is most insistent on men using a vitamin E therapy that is heavily slanted toward gamma tocopherol and all the tocotrienols.

Peyronie’s and vitamin E controversy

Concern about vitamin E safety during the past decade or so has been due solely to bad publicity in this area, which is based on perpetuation of questionable research and misunderstanding about vitamins.   Faulty research reporting and misinterpretation of findings are the same two reasons for the condemnation of vitamin E supplementation.

First, vitamin E confusion arises from a medical reporting that ignores details of a particular vitamin E study reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine.  The problem is gross generalization or not understanding the vitamin E research study.

Review this information to verify what I report is accurate:

  • Those who took part in this vitamin E research often combined vitamin E with various drugs while they were being studied.  All potential and actual adverse drug reactions to these different drug combinations were not factored in or considered anywhere in the study results.
  • All study participants were elderly people, already being treated for a variety of chronic diseases. The researchers report this as a strong complicating issue, and puts suspicion on all conclusions because these elderly and sick people are far more likely to be taking high doses of vitamin E. They readily admit it is inaccurate to generalize these findings of this group to a healthy, normal, average or younger age group population.
  • This study contained too many variables.  It evaluated many different research studies, all of them used different procedures and protocols such as different vitamin E dosages administered for a widely variable amount of time. They admit they evaluated and combined data from sources that originated and were collected in different ways; they went beyond comparing apples and oranges, they compared grapes and bowling balls.
  • None of the studies reported took the time to report or differentiate chemical immense differences of natural and synthetic vitamin E.
  • Within the scientific community the findings of the original research has been questioned and criticized.

Vitamin E safety

The Annals of Internal Medicine report states vitamin E has a relative risk of 1.05. A relative risk of 1.0 is actually a neutral finding.   This 1.05 risk level is not clinically significant to establish an association between a fatal dose or use high dose vitamin like vitamin E.  Consider that water might have a relative risk of 1.05 in certain situations.

Before taking higher doses of vitamin E for therapeutic benefit, consult a health professional first.  Discuss your health concerns, possible vitamin E side effects, and what dosage of vitamin E might be best for you.  Vitamin E may be deficient in some diets, especially very low fat diets. Most nutrition experts agree that taking vitamin E supplements is safe.

Vitamin E study limitations and problems

Here is a summary of this study presented by those who conducted this study:

The evaluation of high-dosage vitamin E trials in which more than 400 IU of vitamin E was used was often too small to establish accuracy of findings.  This study should not have included elderly patients with one or more chronic diseases, yet they were the primary participants.  It is not clear how to generalize the findings of this study conducted on ill and elderly people to a population of healthy adults.  It is also not clear how to determine the exact dosage at which someone might be at risk of taking too much vitamin E based on this study using ill and elderly people.

In spite of these large obvious flaws and limitations, the conclusion of this study is that any dosage at or above 400 IU daily of vitamin E mayincrease mortality and should be avoided.

Secondly, misunderstanding and confusion exists over the many subtle differences between natural and synthetic vitamin E.  The ultimate error is that natural and synthetic vitamin E will chemically react the same, and that is not true.

Problem #2 – Natural or Synthetic Vitamin E

Natural vitamin E is d-alpha-tocopherol, and synthetic vitamin E is dl-alpha-tocopheryl. Since the names of the chemicals are different you know the chemicals are different.  As the chemicals are different, their reaction is also different in the body.

The Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients reports, “Natural vitamin E supplements outperform synthetic forms, according to a VERIS Research Summary. Results of recent studies suggest that natural vitamin E is more bioavailable and is retained in body tissues significantly longer than synthetic vitamin E. These studies show that previously accepted differences were underestimated and that the bioavailability of natural vitamin E is about twice that of synthetic vitamin E compounds.”

Vegetable oil, specifically soybean oil, is the primary source of naturally occurring vitamin E.  However, synthetic vitamin E is manufactured from petroleum chemicals (yes, the same oil that comes out of the ground, used to make tar, motor oil and gasoline, often linked with cancer).

Doctors are very comfortable and familiar with prescribing synthetic chemicals.  For this reason they are not hesitant to prescribe a synthetic vitamin.  But, the primary difference scientists use to determine toxicity and function within the body is the molecular structure of a compound.

When taking levels of “vitamin E” above 400IU is found to be unsafe, it is because the vitamin E is synthetic and not tolerated well. All biomedical testing proves that within the human structure there is a strong chemical discrimination or preference between natural and synthetic vitamin E.

“Our studies suggest without question that natural vitamin E delivers at least twice the impact as synthetic E,” said Robert Acuff, PhD, Professor and Director, Center for Nutrition Research at East Tennessee State University.  He concludes it is the natural form of vitamin E is obviously the one human tissue was designed to use.  Margaret Traber, Associate Professor at the Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University, seems to discriminate between the two forms of vitamin E, reporting that the human body will retain the natural organic form of vitamin E, while rapidly eliminating the synthetic form in the urine and bowel.

It is my opinion that the human organism will tolerate much higher doses of natural vitamin E – provided by Peyronie’s Disease Institute and the Natural Complementary Medicine LLC website – and can tolerate much less synthetic vitamin E available found in lower cost and lower quality products.  For this reason PDI only uses organic and natural vitamin E for use in Peyronie’s disease treatment plans.  Using the kind of vitamin E we have available, many men use levels in the 800IU-1,200IU range while attempting to reduce their Peyronies plaque or scar.

Peyronie’s Disease Surgery

Surgical Peyronie’s treatment has many limitations

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute is not against Peyronie’s disease surgery.

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute is against the abuse of surgical treatment of Peyronie’s disease. Considerable surgical risk exists for any man with PD who has an operation to attempt correction of penile distortion.  Adverse outcomes and worsening of the original problem are associated with even a small incision (or injection) made to a penis that already has demonstrated the tendency to create excess Peyronie’s scar formation.

The overuse and abuse of Peyronie’s surgery should be suspected when the treating doctor does not follow reasonable and conservative guidelines to consider a patient a surgical candidate.   A good surgeon will know that a man with Peyronie’s disease should fulfill these basic points before suggesting surgery:

  1. Severity, the most important indicator. The deformity must be severe enough to seriously interfere or stop sexual intercourse.
  2. Adequate time for healing and spontaneous recovery must be given. Usually thought to be from 12-18 months from the time of onset of PD.
  3. Non-responsive to a fair trial of medical therapy. In practice, many doctors attempt only one form of medical treatment.  When that fails the patient is told surgery is the only other option.  It appears that doctors know the poor results achieved by medication to make a difference with Peyronie’s disease that they are quick to want to skip this step and proceed to the operating room.   When vitamin E is offered as a therapy option, it is done so reluctantly and with little hope for success.  Further, no instruction is offered for the correct use of vitamin E, or information about the eight different members of the vitamin E family.  Since no real help is offered to assure that the patient will use vitamin E correctly, it is no wonder that so many men fail.   There is a large body of information available that can assure a man is more successful with vitamin E therapy for his Peyronie’s disease.  Using the correct type of vitamin E, and using it correctly in conjunction with other forms of therapy that work synergistically with it, would only increase the chance of success.
  4. Stable and unchanging scar.   This can mean changing for the better or worse. Since so few doctors, and the men with PD, even locate the PD scar, it is doubtful that this criteria is seriously considered.

For information about the Leriche surgery technique for Peyronie's disease.

Risks of Peyronie’s surgery

Surgery is not a Peyronie’s cure. Because of the unique anatomy and physiology of the penis, the risks of surgery to this area are a little different than other tissues.

  1. Additional scar formation and possible worsening of PD.  Because any man attempting a surgical correction of PD who already has massive scarring, must expect more scarring to develop as a result of that surgery. It is a known fact – seldom discussed with a PD patient before surgery – that surgery for PD will result in more PD, sooner or later.
  2. Loss of penis size. Extensive scar tissue that is severe and persistent enough to cause a deformity serious enough to justify Peyronies surgery, represents a large mass of internal scar tissue. Surgery will remove a large and irreplaceable loss of connective tissue and loss of elasticity of the tissue that is not removed. If it is not bad enough that surgical correction and return of sexual function cannot be guaranteed because of the possibility of complications, every surgical candidate must understand that there will always be a loss of length and diameter of the penis.   Many men tell me that this secondary consequential loss of penis size is hardly discussed before surgery. Most men learn about the loss of penis size after it is too late.
  3. Incomplete straightening, no change, or worsening of the original PD deformity.  Loss of elasticity, additional scarring, and damage to the veins of the penis that can occur as a result of surgery, can also reduce or prevent correction of the original PD problem.
  4. Loss of sensation.  Due to anatomical location of important sensory nerves of the penis, PD surgery can slightly, or greatly, or totally, reduce skin sensation and  pleasure associated with sexual activity.  Temporary reduction of sensation is very common, and permanent sensory loss is less common.
  5. Loss of erection strength.  Surgery cannot help but alter both the inflow and/or outflow of blood to the penis.   By disturbing the pneumatic mechanism that creates an erection it is not uncommon for men to report either loss of erectile rigidity (hardness) or inability to maintain an erection (impotence) – and sometimes both.

If a surgeon has been attempting to get you to undergo PD correction surgery, and you were told the surgical outcomes are “good,” I strongly suggest you get a very clear and detailed explanation for what the surgeon means by “good.”  You might think “good” means that you will be perfect again, that your PD will be gone, that you will feel like a teenager.  The surgeon might be thinking that “good” means only a one or two inch loss of length, only a 50% chance of loss of penile rigidity, only a 50% loss of skin sensation, and restoring your curve from 90 degrees to only 30 or 40 degrees.   It is not an easy thing to determine how to straighten a curved penis.

If your surgeon tells you these things are not true, and that surgical results are “excellent” you might want to ask him what he means by excellent.  If he says you are worrying too much about such a safe and simple operation, ask the surgeon to put that in writing.  Ask the surgeon to guarantee that the surgery will not result in impotence, loss of skin sensation, that you will have a completely straight penis, and that your Peyronie's penis will never return.  You will not get that guarantee because no one can say what will happen to you as a result of PD surgery.

This blog post is not anti-surgery.  This blog post is all about getting a clear and honest idea about reasonable expectations after Peyronie's surgery.  It is my experience that most men are led to believe that their surgery results will be far better than the surgeon and reality can deliver.

Keep in mind that what is good for the surgeon might not be good for the man with Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie’s Treatment Sensations

Strange reaction to Peyronies therapy

Every now and then I get a question about the variety of unusual sensations and reactions that men notice during Peyronie’s treatment, or immediately after, a particular therapy used in Peyronies treatment.  These are the Peyronie’s disease therapies most often associated with this kind of response:

  1. Genesen Acutouch Pointers
  2. Manual stretching method found on the CD
  3. DMSO PMD formula
  4. Super CP Serum copper peptide ointment

Most often the sensation is described as a "tingling” or “aching” or “electrical” sensation in or near the area of treatment.  It can be felt during or within the hour any of these therapies are applied.  The intensity can be variable from time to time it is felt; sometimes very mild and hardly noticeable, and at other times enough to wake a person from a sound sleep. Sometimes the response occurs each time the treatment is done, and for other men the reaction occurs every now and then at irregular times.

If you experience this kind of reaction in the area of your Peyronie’s scar, do not become alarmed. It is common and usually signals some good response to your Peyronie’s treatment as changes are occurring in the condition of the scar.

This is not something that has been studied much in the scientific literature since those researchers prescribing drugs or standard medical procedures for PD do not get the kind of reactions and responses that occur while following the Peyronie’s Disease Institute therapy principles.  They do not report this kind of reaction because they do not make the kind of rapid changes that are seen in men using the PDI protocols.

Therefore, there is no research that has been done to explain this phenomenon.  It is my theory that these reactions are due to the rapid changes that take place in the tissue in and around the scar material.  During or after a particular Peyronie’s treatment a change may occur in the tension and length of the otherwise contracted scar material of the penis.  These alterations of tension and position of the tissue layers could easily explain the unusual sensations that occur. I find from my own treatment experience, and that of other men who have had improvement in their Peyronie’s disease, that these "moving" or “tingling” or “aching” sensations appear when the scar is undergoing some level of change (improvement).  Many men come to count on the appearance of these changes to herald improvement of their scars from time to time.

It is most probably NOT just one therapy or just the one product causing this usual sensation.   It is closer to the truth to say that these sensations are the sum total of all the synergistic efforts that are included in your therapy plan. The problem (a good problem) with using so many of these therapies together is that you will never be able to accurately say which one did the most or least for you.   A synergistic Alternative Medicine therapy plan is a group effort, with all therapies making some contribution to whatever happens to you.

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.

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.”

Penis Stretching for Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

Penis stretcher in Peyronie’s disease treatment

 

Here is a post that I recently entered on a Peyronie's disease forum in response to a man’s comment that he wore a particular penis traction device for three months and noticed no change in his condition.   This information about this manual therapy that works well with other Peyronie's disease natural treatments found on the PDI website.

 

Greetings estep32002,

 

I have read your post about the penis stretching or penis traction device for Peyronies treatment.

 

Previously, I have written to this forum in the negative about these penis traction devices. I have done so because of repeated communications I receive from men who have Peyronie's disease, who tell me of their lack of success. They tell me of their inability to wear these penis stretcher devices because of built-in design flaws, and their experience of being injured by these stretchers. All that I learn tells me they do not help Peyronie's disease as the sellers say they do.

 

Actually, I think you are somewhat unusual in your ability to have worn or used one for three months. Men tell me they cannot stand to put one on for longer than a half hour. They say they get bruised and develop sores after a few minutes or a few hours of use.

 

One fellow recently told me he wore his expensive model for ten minutes and never put it back on again. Another poor guy admitted to me he has three of them sitting in a drawer, and they all hurt him badly. He thought if bought a better and more expensive one, he would eventually find one that he could use. Three stretchers later, no such luck.

 

If you could wear such a device long enough to actually stretch the soft tissue of the penis, that does not mean the more rigid and more dense tissue of the Peyronies plaque would also stretch. When I was first introduced to the idea of using a penis traction device to treat Peyronie's disease, it did not make sense to me. I figured that the only thing that could eventually happen – if all went well – would be that the penis would be larger, but it would still exhibit the PD plaque with the related curvature that it causes. Let me explain.

 

Just as a chain breaks at its weakest link, a penis that has a Peyronies plaque in it will primarily stretch from the normal, healthy tissue. The normal tissue will stretch sooner and farther than the plaque material can respond to the stretching force. Think of it this way: A roll of toilet paper tears at the perforations because that is a point of weakness in the paper. Here's another example: Remember when automobile tires had inner tubes? Remember what would happen if you blew it up with air, if it had a weak spot in the rubber wall of the inner tube? Sure. The weak part would bubble up or swell up because it was weaker than the normal strong part. The weaker part would stretch under pressure before the strong part of the rubber had a chance to stretch.

 

In Peyronie's disease stretching the weaker tissue is the softer normal tissue, while the stronger tissue is the plaque that contains all the dense fibrous materials. When someone with PD stretches his penis, most or all of the lengthening will come from the more flexible and weaker tissue, not the scar tissue. The scar will not be altered because it cannot participate in the stretch, because the traction force is used up by the normal tissue.

 

When I ask these traction device makers a few simple questions exactly how their penis enlargement products can help Peyronies, I never receive answers back from them. I ask about the pain and tissue erosion created by the pressure that is applied to hold onto the penis head, and again I get no reply. I think this says a lot

 

There are safer and more effective ways to stretch the penis, to reduce the PD plaque material, than applying a mechanical appliance that smashes down on the glans to hold the penis. Peyronie's disease is a complicated and stubborn problem to treat. I have been personally involved with PD for about seven years now, since having the happy experience of developing a pretty nasty case of it. In that time I have learned a lot and helped many men along the way. My advice is to be very careful with these mechanical penis stretcher products. TRH

 

What I did not mention in that Peyronie’s disease forum response is that the safer and more effective way to stretch the penis was developed by me while working with 10 men who I knew who were customers of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute. If you are interested in learning about this gentle and effective way to treat your Peyronies, go to Peyronie's penis stretching.

Peyronie’s Natural Treatment

Peyronie’s disease natural cures not presented honestly

When a man with Peyronie’s disease investigates the internet for Peyronie’s disease natural treatments, the results are surprising and disappointing. Usually the information is not about Peyronie’s natural treatment in an honest or wide presentation, but simply a limited two or three sentence statement that vitamin E does not help in cases of Peyronie’s disease.   The idea presented is that Peyronie’s natural treatment is the use of vitamin E and nothing more and nothing else, and it does not help anyway.

The truth is that the average medical doctor does not know how to use vitamin E as a Peyronie’s natural treatment, and so he or she mismanages the value of the therapy. Any failure is not placed where it belongs – on the doctor – but is assumed to be the failure of vitamin E to help Peyronie’s disease.

What this kind of statement means – "that  vitamin E does not help in cases of Peyronie's disease" – only means that the writer or the doctor does not know how to use vitamin E effectively or correctly to assist the body to correct this problem.  It has nothing to do with vitamin E, or any other Peyronie's natural treatment – but with the way they are used.

Peyronie’s disease natural cures unfair representation

It is not fair to say that vitamin E is not a valid and effective Peyronie’s natural treatment. However, it is accurate that the way the average medical website or medical doctor has extremely limited and biased information against Peyronie’s disease natural cures. It is fair to say that the average medical doctor is strongly biased in favor of drugs and surgery as the primary treatment for any medical condition. In the case of Peyronie’s disease, this is especially perplexing and damaging to someone with Peyronie’s disease looking for genuinely helpful information, since the medical profession admits there is no effective drug to treat this problem and the results of surgery are often poor – at best.

It is also not fair to say that vitamin E is the only Peyronie’s natural treatment that can be employed against Peyronie’s disease. The potential list of Peyronie’s disease natural cures is rather long and varied:

1. Vitamin E – oral and topical, especially the gamma tocopherol faction

2. Vitamin C – best combined with vitamin C

3. PABA – this is a B vitamin, not POTABA which is a drug that is made by the addition of a potassium molecule added to PABA

4. Quercetin – an antioxidant

5. Bromelain – powerful protein enzyme

6. Serrapeptase – powerful protein enzyme

7. Nattokinase – powerful protein enzyme

8. Herbal compounds – Chinese and Ayurvedic types

9. DMSO – dimethyl sulfoxide drives therapy compounds deep into the scar tissue

10. Copper peptides – topical preparation assists scar reorganization

11. Acupuncture – non-invasive techniques used for over 4000 years to help healing

12. Massage – increase blood circulation and tone of local tissue

13. Exercise – increase blood circulation and tone of local tissue

14. Manual penis stretching – gentle non-mechanical method to stretch contracted scar

15. Diet – special protocol to promote tissue alkalinity and healing

The average person for Peyronie’s disease natural treatment information would do well to expand their search beyond biased medical websites and explore the many well researched and diverse Alternative Medicine websites that seriously investigate the subject in a more comprehensive manner.

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute presents over 200 pages of documented information exploring Peyronie’s disease natural treatments along with a Q/A section, survey’s, books, and videos to explore the many diverse options that are available for consideration.

One last thought concerning information about Peyronie’s disease natural cures. There is none. Some unscrupulous individuals promote herbal concoctions and painful mechanical penis stretching devices as Peyronie’s disease natural cures, but they are not anything of the kind. While all of the Peyronie’s disease natural treatments mentioned above when used in an effectively combined treatment plan can help the body to heal and repair the terrible Peyronie’s scar, none of them can be considered a cure in the sense many would hope.

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute offers detailed information and therapy products that when used together in various combinations have helped men all over the world for the last eight years to reduce and sometimes overcome their problem while intelligently using Peyronie’s natural treatment.

Peyronie’s Disease Impotence

Peyronie's Impotence facts

There are several reasons why Peyronie’s disease impotence (erectile dysfunction) develops in about 75 percent of the men who have this condition. Peyronie’s disease impotence can be mild or total, it can be occasional or constant, but it is extremely common for men with Peyronie’s disease to experience sexual intercourse performance problems or alteration of erection strength.

Impotence is defined as the continual inability to sustain an erection long enough or strong enough for sexual intercourse or the inability to achieve ejaculation, or both. Peyronie’s disease impotence is the erectile dysfunction that develops due to abnormal changes in the penis that are part of Peyronie’s disease.

Most people assume that Peyronie’s impotence develops due to lack of blood flow to the organ. This might be true in especially in those cases in which the man has an underlying problem with the cardiovascular system (high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, vascular disease, diabetes, etc.) In other men , another occasional cause of Peyronie’s disease impotence is emotional. Because of the reduced self esteem, shame, embarrassment and anger related to penile distortion and reduced length and girth of the organ, a man can develop strong emotional reactions expressed as Peyronie’s impotence. However, for most men the primary cause of Peyronie’s disease impotence is simply due to what is known as “venous leakage.”

Peyronie’s impotence fundamentals

In a great number of cases of Peyronie’s disease impotence the fundamental problem is that the blood is no longer being trapped by the veins of the penis to dam it up to create the greater fluid pressure of an erection. The problem is that the veins of a man with Peyronie’s disease do not close to trap blood well. This imperfect or absent closing is caused in great part by the presence of the Peyronie’s scar. The scar acts like something that is blocking a door from closing. That is where therapy should be directed in Peyronie’s disease impotence – toward removal of the scar so the veins can close to allow a normal erection to develop.

Peyronie's Symptoms

Peyronie's disease symptoms

Peyronie’s disease symptoms can be extremely variable.  In fact, one of the things that make these  symptoms so difficult to put together into a diagnosis or Peyronie's symptoms is the different presentation of this problem from one man to another. For this reason, Peyronie's disease treatment is difficult.  Even pictures of Peyronie’s disease that show what the condition can look like, are also variable.

This is why the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has worked for almost a decade to determine the best possible way to diagnose and treat this problem that often eludes effective care.

Because of the wide variety of Peyronie’s symptoms, Peyronies treatment can be variable when using Alternative medicine.

Peyronie’s symptoms of importance

The onset of Peyronies disease symptoms can be sudden or slow, but most often will appear in less than a month after direct injury, sometimes taking just a few days to appear when injury is found to be the cause of onset.

The severity of Peyronie's symptoms can also be variable. Some men do not even know they have the problem because their Peyronie’s symptoms are so mild, while other men experience alarming Peyronie’s symptoms that they are unavoidable and shocking.

Two most typical Peyronie’s symptoms:

Distorted or curved penis

When the penis is erect, it is very common to have the Peyronie’s symptoms of a deformity or distortion caused by the presence of internal fibrous or “scar’ tissue within the tunica albuginea of the curved penis. The penis may be:

  • Bent, or curved, upward, the most common deformity, or bent down or to one side; not often in will bend down
  • Distorted into an “hourglass” appearance, with a narrow band around the erect shaft that is complete or partial
  • Distorted into an “bottleneck” appearance, in which the base of the penis remains fairly well erect and normal for the individual, but the area above and away from the base remains small and non-erect
  • http://homeequityloanss.com
  • Distorted into a “hinge,” “dent,” “ding,” “niche” effect, in which the penis when erect has a small but distinct area of non-filling making it appear to have a small portion that remains soft and non-erect.

Any of these Peyronies symptoms of curvature or other deformity may gradually worsen during the first six to 18 months. After a certain point, which is variable from man to man, the distortion will no longer worsen.

Pain as a Peyronie’s symptom

Pain most often occurs with an erection during the first six to 18 months after onset. However, pain associated with Peyronie's disease may present itself in many ways:

  • Only during an erection
  • Only when not erect (flaccid)
  • Only during an orgasm
  • Only when the penis is touched

Some men do not have any distortion or bend of the penis, or pain, making these two common Peyronie’s symptoms not totally reliable as a way to diagnose Peyronie’s disease.

Other common Peyronie’s disease symptoms

Scar tissue under the skin surface

The scar tissue, also known as a plaque, associated with Peyronie's disease can be felt below the surface of the skin of the penis as small elevated or flat beads, lumps, bands of slightly to greatly dense and hard tissue. Some of these are smooth or rough, with even or irregular edges. Some men can easily find their Peyronies scar and with other men it is never located even by a doctor.

Less common Peyronie’s disease symptoms

  • Distortion or bending while flaccid
  • Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • Loss of penile size by either shortening of the penis, or loss of girth or circumference, or both

Peyronie’s treatment breakthrough

Non-drug Peyronie’s breakthrough

When someone thinks of a Peyronie’s breakthrough most commonly a miracle drug, like Xiaflex for  Peyronie’s disease treatment might come to mind.  Yet, the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has brought several key ideas and therapies to the Peyronies community in the last few years, any one of which could be called a Peyronie’s breakthrough.

Peyronies breakthrough treatment concepts

Several different and new Peyronies treatment ideas and products developed by the Peyronie’s Disease Institute since 2002, in addition to improvements over existing concepts known to the medical community.

A genuine Peyronies breakthrough is the Peyronie’s Disease Institute Manual Penis Stretching Method© The basic idea of stretching the Peyronie’s scar to straighten the bent and contracted tissue is not new. Because there is considerable profit in this devices, the idea has been overrun by copycats who use a mechanical penis stretching device to make the penis straighter in spite of the Peyronie’s plaque. After talking to many men who were injured by these ineffective and dangerous mechanical penis stretching devices, the Peyronie’s Disease Institute investigated the subject. After a two year research project, PDI developed a safe, effective and affordable technique that is very effective when combined with a traditional aggressively designed PD therapy plan.

The CD for this new Peyronies breakthrough 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 treatment – 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.

Peyronie’s breakthrough research

The PDI research group to develop the idea of a safe and effective manual stretching technique consisted of 10 men, all of whom:

1. Were 40 to 72 years of age,

2. Had PD four to eight years,

3. Had penile curvature from 40° to100°, that had not changed in over six months,

4. Stayed under medical supervision during the project,

5. Failed with at least two different medical therapies without help (POTABA, verapamil, cholchicine, cortisone, etc.),

Within six months, of the 10 research participants:
8 – saw moderate to significant improvement of curvature,
2 – saw no progress with their curvature, and
10 – (100%) saw moderate to marked improvement of sexual ability.

Those eight participants who earned moderate to significant correction of their Peyronies distortion, also used an aggressive PD therapy plan of vitamins, minerals, herbs, PDI Massage and Exercise program or Genesen Acutouch Pointers during the penis stretching research. None just stretched the penis; that would only result in penis enlargement, and that is not the PDI goal. All men added the Peyronie’s Disease Institute Manual Penis Stretching Method© into an already large and actively pursued Alternative Medicine therapy plan designed to reverse and eliminate their PD scar. As a result, eight of 10 men noticed an abrupt and significant objective and subjective improvement of their symptoms.

Peyronie’s disease self treatment for a curved penis

PDI – the leader in Peyronies disease self treatment

Every now and then I get an email from someone wanting to know if I know anything about self treatment to reduce the curved penis of Peyronie's disease.

This is always surprising since it is so obvious to me that the major topic of the entire Peyronie’s Disease Institute web site is all about using Peyronies natural treatments that every man can manage for himself.

The way that PDI helps someone learn about and work with Peyronies disease self treatment is by first explaining about the different therapies, then offering detailed information about putting together an effective Peyronies treatment plan, and lastly by being available to answer questions and make suggestions if problems arise during care.

The general topics of discussion and product availability that are part of a larger Peyronies disease self treatment plan include:

1. Natural supplements taken internally (vitamin E, vitamin C, PABA, acetyl-L-carnitine, enzymes, herbs, etc.)

2. Homeopathic medicine (Scar-X)

3. Natural supplements taken externally (vitamin E, copper peptides, DMSO)

4. Energetic medicine (professional grade non-invasive acupuncture therapy equipment, a video about gentle manual stretching of the PD scar, or an additional educational program that is a video about a gentle massage and exercise program)

5. Books (“Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” and “Peyronie’s Disease & Sex”)

For anyone who is interested in Peyronies disease self treatment, it is safe to think that PDI has what you need. PDI has provided help to those who want to help themselves get over their Peyronies since 2002.  If you have any questions about the topic of Peyronie's disease self treatment, please contact Dr. Herazy at info@peyronies-disease-hlep.com

New Peyronies Treatment

Many New Peyronie's Treatment Available

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.

Peyronies Treatment and the Penis Stretcher

Peyronie's Curved Penis and the Penis Stretcher

This blog report is about the hot Peyronie’s disease treatment topic of penis stretchers, or as they sometimes call an extender, and the long awaited announcement of our new, one-hour PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© CD video.

All of this work and the discovery of yet another way to use Alternative Medicine to treat Peyronie’s disease started because I receive so many questions about the penis stretching devices, and the sad fact that I hear so many bad stories about them. I got tired of telling people why these penis stretcher devices cannot work, describing the common potential dangers they create, their mechanical limitations of use, and the many horror stories I hear from men whose PD started after using a penis stretcher. So, I started with a goal to learn if I could safely and effectively stretch the Peyronies penis, and I did.

A few months ago I wrote in the PD Institute Newsletters that I would soon offer a process that would revolutionize the concept of penis stretching as an improved form of Peyronies treatment. Now, the brand new PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© CD is complete and ready for your review on the PDI website.

There are several very good reasons I looked into, and then developed, this entirely new concept in Peyronie’s disease treatment. Most of these reasons are well known to a large percent of men who have Peyronies treatment and have tried and failed with the commonly advertised mechanical penis stretcher devices, and should be well known to the rest of you for your personal benefit and safety.

From my experience, those over-priced penis stretcher devices you see advertised so heavily as a Peyronies treatment are not effective, and are potentially dangerous to all men with PD.

One aspect of the problem is the inability to wear the stretcher. Makers of these manual devices do not mention on their websites that you should not wear the device for more than two hours at a time – yet they want you to wear it for eight to nine hours a day to achieve results. If you could actually wear the stretcher for the full two hours, this would mean that you would put it on and take it off four or five times a day, with perhaps an hour or two rest periods between each wearing cycle. Most of your day would be spent tending to the stretcher, and you would have to do this for perhaps a year or more!

However, after talking to many hundreds of men over the years I know that most men cannot wear one for longer than 10-15 minutes at a time because of the pain and injury they cause. The pain is not so much caused by actual stretching of the penis, but by the pinching and compression to the head of the penis (glans) that is needed to forcefully hold the penis while it is stretched. Now, I don’t know about you, but my penis does not have a handle on it, so there is no good or easy way for a mechanical stretcher to grab the penis in order to stretch it. Thus, it is necessary to apply a strong and constant pressure directly around and below the glans while the traction force is applied.

I have met a few men who could wear a manual stretcher for up to an hour at a time, but not much more than that. If you are one of the men tough enough to wear one for up to an hour, this would mean most of your waking hours would be spent waiting in pain to either put the stretcher on or take it off. I have met men who had so much pain, tissue erosion and broken blood vessels that they never tried to wear it more than once. I have met men whose Peyronies started after a single use of a manual penis stretcher.

The danger of bruising, blisters and tissue erosion are so common that the instructions that come with the stretcher devices discuss what you should do when – not if – these problems occur. If this level of injury happens to the outside of the penis, it can do similar injury to the delicate tunica albuginea where the real injury of Peyronie’s disease occurs. This is how men get into trouble.

There are other practical problems with the stretchers. These involve common issues of daily living like wearing clothes, sitting down, working or urinating that make using a stretcher rather difficult or impossible. I guess these would not be a problem to men who do not wear clothes, do not sit down, do not work, and urinate wherever and whenever they wish. For the rest of us, the mechanical stretchers pose a real problem in the real world.

There are other considerations about the stretcher devices. Have you ever wondered why most of the penis stretcher companies that advertise so heavily are located outside the U.S.? It could be that it is better for them to be located outside the bounds of U.S. law when it comes to customer complaints, product returns and refunds.

Over the years I have been approached by many major manufacturers of these stretching devices, asking me to sell their products on the PDI website. When I ask a few specific questions of these people, something interesting always happens. I find that the person I am speaking to suddenly is not the correct person to answer my kind of question, and I am told that someone else will get back to me with an answer. When I do not get called back by the second person, for fun and curiosity, I call back to speak to the second person. The second person is never available, or is never in the office, and never calls me back. Never, in all the times and all the situations this has happened over the years, has anyone ever answered one of my questions. Remember, these are the people who want me to sell their product, yet this is the kind of help and service I receive. Can you imagine the help and service you would receive if you called with a problem after you spent your money?

Did you ever wonder, if the stretchers worked as quickly and easily as the advertising says they do, why do they have to advertise constantly everywhere you go when you read about PD? There is a reason they are advertised so heavily, and it is not because of effectiveness.

Yet, the concept of stretching soft tissue is interesting since Peyronie’s disease is a soft tissue problem.

So, I recently completed this experimental trial that lasted a little less than two years, in which I worked with 10 men who were customers of PDI and NCMP. From this effort I was able to devise a totally new concept in manually stretching the Peyronies plaque or scar. Our results showed that 80% had moderate to marked reduction of curvature and/or scar formation, with each and every man experiencing an improvement of sexual function.

I encourage you to visit the PDI website to learn more about this method to safely, painlessly, comfortably, and effectively reduce your PD scar, reduce your PD curvature, and improve your sexual ability in 80% of the cases. I ask that you understand that the same concepts of Alternative Medicine, logic and common sense you see throughout the PDI website also applies to the strategy and methods taught in the new PDI one-hour stretching CD.

If, after watching the brief demonstration video, you still have questions about the procedure then just send me an email at info@peyronies-disease-help.com You know I will answer your questions.

Bear in mind that the primary principle behind all PDI treatment concepts has always been synergy, and it always will be. Therefore, you need to understand that the PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© is not a stand alone method.

Manual penis stretching was used in our tests in conjunction with standard Peyronie’s Disease Institute treatment plans as an additional method to increase synergy of care. No one used just this gentle manual penis stretching technique. In each case, greater progress occurred after using the Peyronie’s Disease Manual Penis Stretching Method© than without it; each man who followed the system saw better progress from his PDI therapy plan after adding the stretching technique. It seems that the PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© increased effectiveness of our current treatment concept in eight out of 10 in our little study group.

Yes, Peyronies is a lousy problem and I wish I could tell you that this is a magical cure – just like the people who make the mechanical penis stretchers or the herbal products, but I can’t. Effectively treating Peyronie’s disease is still work.

While I can report that 80% of the group saw improvement, that means that 20% did not. I came to learn that those who did not do well with the manual stretching method were those who used very small therapy plans or did not follow their plans faithfully. So, there is room for improvement with this manual Peyronies treatment method. I would hope so. We are just learning how to apply this concept, so it will be necessary to share our insights, experiences and ideas with each other.

Please check it out. I believe you will be impressed and intrigued with the PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method©.

Peyronie’s disease treatment and Viagra, Cialis and Levitra

Questions about Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, and Peyronie's disease

Boy, do I get questions about Viagra, Cialis and Levitra and Peyronie's disease!  Most of these questions come from men who are taking these drugs on the advice of their MDs who using it as part of their Peyronies treatment efforts.

These drugs are wildly popular, not only among men who have erectile difficulty (Peyronie's disease impotence) but also healthy men who merely use them to have longer lasting and more repetitive sexual intercourse.

Sounds like a good thing, doesn’t it?

While I hate to spoil the fun, but over the years I have had a disturbing number of men tell me they know their PD started after using Viagra, Cialis, etc.   The erections created by these drugs are indeed super-erections and get to be that way because of the greater than normal internal pressure that is created within the tunica albuginea.  This is powerful stuff that can really cause problems in this delicate area of the male body.

These drugs create such hard and long-lasting erections because they induce an abnormal state in the penis. What if you could take a drug that would enable you to lift a ton of weight above your head and keep it there for an hour?  Nice trick, very impressive, but your body is not built to take that kind of pressure.  It would cause great damage to internal organs, your spine, your blood vessels, all major joints, etc.  Simply put, “It just ain’t natural.”  Same with Peyronie's treatment with Viagra, and the rest of these products.

As much as it might sound like a dream come true, the penis is not built to sustain increased internal pressures that are created by these drugs, and the penis is not built to have hour after hour of intercourse.  That kind of activity can be abusive to the delicate tunica.  Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

I have an interesting story from a man who called me a few months back and explained that he injured his penis in a most unusual way.  He and his wife had used Viagra for the first time to their mutual delight.  Both of them went to sleep, except his penis continued to stay erect.  It was a monster of an erection and at first he thought it was great.  During the night, while asleep with a huge erection, he rolled over in bed and jammed his penis into the mattress.  He felt a great pain and felt the tissue “pop.”  Basically he tried to pole vault on his erection and he found his penis could not sustain that force.  About two months later he developed PD.  Can you imagine what would happen if you already have Peyronies disease and had something like that happened?  You would go from bad to worse.  This man did.

I know many men with PD have their MDs write prescriptions for these erections drugs.  I am sympathetic why men do these things.  They figure if it was not good for them the MD would now do it.  What they forget is that most MDs do not understand or care about PD, and are more interested in getting the fee for the office visit, than doing what is the smart thing to do.  MDs also perform surgery for PD that makes the problem worse, knowing there is a high rate of poor surgical results from this kind of surgery.  Just because you can get a prescription for it doesn’t make it any safer or any less stupid in the long run.

Use your head and stay away from these forced erections.

One last metaphor.  Your car tires are designed to hold 40 pounds of air pressure.  What would happen if you decided to increase the pressure to 80 pounds, just for “the fun of it?”  Well, first of all, we would all understand the tire would be much more likely to blow up and pull away from the rim because it was not built to be used that way.  It would be damaged by applying more pressure to it than it was built to take.  Enough said.

Peyronie's Disease Institute has access to some really great Oriental herbal erection enhancing – not forcing – products.  These will easily and gently boost your erectile ability but not in such a forceful way that you will get hurt.  They surely do work, but with no side effects, they last a good 8-12 hours, and they are a whole lot less expensive than your prescription drugs.  Let me know if you are interested and I will give you some information about these wonderful and safe products.

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 treatment

Peyronie's disease treatment in detail

Since mid-2002, I have been deeply and continually involved in Peyronie's disease treatment – initially for myself, and then later for other men who have PD. All the details of my successful effort to heal my own case of Peyronie's disease using Alternative Medicine are revealed in my first book, “Peyronies' Disease Handbook."

The most popular single topic of any email question I receive from around the world concerns Peyronies treatment, naturally.  More than wanting to know about the chemistry or the physiology of Peyronie’s disease, or how to locate the Peyronie’s plaque, or names of doctors in different parts of the world, or anything else about PD, people want to know what must be done to successfully treat this terrible problem.

Many details about Peyronie’s disease treatment are found on the PDI website, in “Peyronies' Disease Handbook," and in nearly 100 issues of the Peyronies Disease Institute Newsletter.  Some days I answer more than a dozen emails from men and women who have countless questions about PD treatment.  I offer the best information I possibly can to each person. Yet, no matter how many times I present this information in a variety of formats, there remains one aspect of Peyronies treatment that many people just do not seem to understand.

Perhaps it is my fault for not stating this treatment information plainly enough, or not presenting it often enough.  Yet, somehow I feel responsible I have not found the best way to present this basic aspect of Peyronie’s disease treatment so everyone will understand this topic as well as I do.   If this is so, if all this is my fault, here is yet another attempt to make this important point about Peyronies treatment perfectly clear.

Peyronie’s disease treatment critical point

Regardless of how a person attempts to increase their immune response to eliminate the nasty Peyronie’s plaque, it is not as important how you start treatment, as it is how you progress and eventually finish your Peyronies treatment.   There are many ways to rationalize and calculate how you will go about treating your PD problem.  There are many good ways to help your body eliminate the Peyronie's scar and restore penis health.  That is the reason I have assembled three different size sample treatment plans. I have repeatedly said that these three plans can be increased or decreased in an effort to help your body heal your Peyronies.

Each day several men begin their Peyronie’s treatment with PDI in a wide variety of formats. Some of these are ultimately successful and some are ultimately unsuccessful, not because of the plan they put together at the beginning of their care, but their ability to modify, organize and apply the necessary changes to their Peyronie’s treatment plan if they do not get the kind of results they are looking for with the plan they start with.

Peyronie's treatment is like a football game

Let’s say that you are a football coach, and you have a big game coming up.  As part of your job, you rationalize and calculate how you will beat the opposing team.  You know the strengths and weaknesses of the men on your own team, and you do the best you can to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the men on the other team.  You keep in mind the weather conditions, the time of day, home team advantages, and countless statistics to eventually develop a winning strategy.  Eventually, you devise a plan to win.  The day of the big game arrives and you put your plan into action.  After a few minutes into the game you see that you have made some mistakes because none of what you planned is happening, because apparently you did not figure things out correctly.

You can do one of two basic things:

  1. You continue with the plan you started with.  You follow the basic plan that you started with because you tell yourself that your plan made sense to you before, and it should eventually work out.  You tell yourself, you must have patience with your plan.  You remind yourself that if you continue to follow your starting strategy things will sooner or later come together, your plan will begin to work, and you will eventually win.  Besides that, you do not know what else to do, so you struggle forward.
  2. You change your plan after giving it a reasonable time to work.  You eventually keep those parts of your starting strategy that seem to be working, while you change other parts of the plan that are not.  You improvise where you can, make minor and major changes if you are able, and look around for options that you might not ever have considered before.  You try different things until something works.   It is not pretty, it is not what you planned, but you take every advantage you can find during each moment of the game. Besides that, you do not know what else to do because continuing with a loosing plan does not make sense to you.

You see, my PD Warrior, Peyronie’s treatment should not be not static, although some people approach it that way.  Just because you start with one idea, one plan, does not mean you must continue with it if it does not seem to be working after a reasonable length of time.

If you start with one idea, and it seems to be working, fine, continue with it.  But if it is not working, change it.  How?  I don’t know.  But if you let me ask you a few questions and tell me about what you are doing, I know I can offer you some ideas you have never considered.  Sometimes these changes make a small difference in the progression of Peyronies treatment, and sometimes they make a huge difference.

Now, I hope this little discussion makes a difference in your effort to increase your ability to heal and repair your Peyronie’s disease.

Please comment and ask questions here if there is more that you would like to know about successful Peyronies treatment.

Peyronies treatment and the penis stretcher

Peyronies treatment and the penis stretcher

last longer for men

This blog report is about the hot Peyronie’s disease treatment topic of penis stretchers, or extender, and the long awaited announcement of our new, one-hour PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© CD video.

All of this work and the discovery of yet another way to use Alternative Medicine to treat Peyronie’s disease started because I receive so many questions about the penis elongating devices, and the sad fact that I hear so many bad stories about them.

While I can report that 80% of the group saw improvement, that means that 20% did not. I came to learn that those who did not do well with the manual stretching method were those who used very small therapy plans or did not follow their plans faithfully. So, there is room for improvement with this manual Peyronies treatment method. I would hope so. We are just learning how to apply this concept, so it will be necessary to share our insights, experiences and ideas with each other.

Please check it out. I believe you will be impressed and intrigued with the PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method©. Go to Manual Penis Stretching Method© and let me know what you think.

Peyronie’s Disease Institute Survey

PDI has conducted an online survey asking many questions concerning various aspects of health and habits of men who have Peyronie’s disease. This survey has changed slightly over the five years it has been conducted. These changes and additions have been in response to emerging trends of information about Peyronie’s disease treatment and the men who have this problem.

Many of you blog readers have completed the Peyronie’s Disease Institute’s symptom survey, and for that I thank you. For those who have not answered that survey, I encourage you to do so at Peyronie's survey.

The value of contributing to the survey has been proven in many ways. In fact, it was the strong trend of digestive symptoms that many men with Peyronie’s disease indicated in the survey, that prompted interest in looking at this as a possible direction of additional care. As a result, the inclusions of the dietary therapy concepts were developed that are now a part of the PDI treatment format. For complete details of those dietary suggestions to reduce stress upon the digestive tract in men with Peyronies, please refer to the large chapter in “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” that is available at Peyronie's Disease Handbook

I continue to monitor and assess the answers from the PDI survey daily. There are several different trends (low back flexibility, circulation of the hands, cold sores and production of stomach hydrochloric acid) that I continue to monitor. In addition, there are a few larger patterns taking shape as the numbers of survey responses continues to grow with each passing day.

As a side note concerning the PDI survey, if there is anyone out in the large audience of this blog, who has some insight or nagging question about the cause or treatment of Peyronie’s disease and would like to submit a question for possible inclusion in the Peyronies survey, please submit it here to the Peyronie's forum blog.

Peyronies Treatment and Breast Cancer

Peyronie's disease treatment information to use

http://www.customessaywritingservicess.com/

Here is an some interesting information about Peyronie’s treatment from an unlikely source: breast cancer research.

German researchers who track breast cancer rates of progression have proposed the controversial notion that some forms of breast tumors found in mammogram studies might naturally disappear – or heal – on their own if left undetected. Archives of Internal Medicine November 24, 2008;168(21):2311-2316. Mammography and manual breast self-examination for tumors have become the standard methods for early detection of breast cancer during the last 20 years.Dr. Per-Henrik Zahl and colleagues examined highly invasive breast cancer rates among nearly 120,000 women age 50 to 64 who had a mammogram examination over a six-year period. They compared the number of breast cancers found in another group of approximately 110,000 women who were screened only once at the end of the same six-year period.

Dr. Zahl expected to find no differences in breast cancer rates. However, he found 22 percent more invasive breast tumors in the group who had mammograms every two years, raising the possibility some cancers somehow disappear naturally.

This landmark cancer study suggests that some cancer can go away on its own, something that most doctors and oncologists would never consider. Prior to this study, when a cancer disappears without treatment, it is typically dismissed as an error of diagnosis or a fluke. But this German study suggests that even highly invasive cancers not only may go away without active medical treatment, but that they do more often than previously imagined.This supports the Peyronie's Disease Institute concept that our body’s have the remarkable capacity to heal, and that ability is determined largely by our lifestyle – including and primarily your nutritional intake. If you eat well, exercise, get enough sleep and sun exposure and address your emotional stress, your body has the best opportunity to maintain a healthy balance toward correction of many health problems like Peyronie's disease. Is this an infallible method of health care? Of course not.

People still need medical intervention and need to visit their medical doctors. But they also need to remember that the body can heal itself when given the opportunity, and that opportunity must be promoted by following reasonable things that promote health as we discuss on the PDI website.

If you are interested in information that will help you understand how to promote your best possible chance for a natural Peyronie's treatment, then go to the website of the Peyronie's Disease Institute.

If the body can cure an invasive breast cancer, it can do many wonderful and miraculous things when given the opportunity. PDI gives you information about promoting that opportunity for the best Peyronies treatment possible.
