What is the maximum "safe" daily dosage of Vitamin E for treatment of Peyronie's disease?

What is the maximum “safe” daily dosage of Vitamin E (for example, Unique E) in IU that is recommended for treatment of Peyronie's disease. I have read that daily doses in excess of 1500 IU of d-alpha tocopherol can be potentially toxic. I am planning on taking Vitamin E, with Nattokinase 200mg 2x/day, and PABA 1000mg 3x/day. Any comments on this regimen are appreciated.

Greetings,

Please search this website for many articles I have written about safety of taking vitamin E within a Peyronie's disease treatment plan.  For example: Peyronie's disease treatment and vitamin E  and  Peyronie's disease vitamin E therapy.

To answer your question directly, I usually recommend that a man takes 800-1200IU of Unique E daily in a Peyronies plan.

Concerning the brief plan that you have outlined, above, I suggest that you consider adding some external therapies to this plan (DMSO with related copper peptides and vitamin E as topical applications, gentle manual penis stretching, ultrasound, etc.).  Your plan as you describe it is not fully developed.  I suggest that you look at the small, medium or large PDI plans to get an idea of what a well rounded plan looks like.

Question about vitamin E

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

Greetings,

The vitamin E product we make available on the website of the Peyronie's Disease Institute contains all four factions of vitamin E: the alpha, beta, delta and gamma tocopherol members of that family. Please find it at Unique-E vitamin E.  TRH

Does Unique-E oil have the tocotrienol portion of the vitamin E family in it?

Hello Dr Herazy. My peyronies is very mild it was done in a sex accident around 7 months ago. My penis is still straight when erect and hasn't really changed. I just noticed a little more bend in my penis when I went to urinate in the morning. My condition is stable and isn't really changing. My urologist said it was a traumatic form of peyronies. There is no real scaring but noticed when I did it a small line on the side of my penis more noticeable when erect. I was thinking of using your Unique vitamin E oil. Does it have the tocotrienol parts of vitamin E in it? Thanks for reading my question.

Greetings, 

Yes, Unique-E oil has both all four members of the tocotrienol part of the vitamin E family, as well as all four members of the tocopherol part of the vitamin E family.   I trust you need to know that in addition to using the topical vitamin E you should use PMD DMSO after the vitamin E is applied to the area so that the vitamin E can be taken deeply into the involved tissue. 

Further, you should not assume that your Peyronie's disease will stay the way it is now. Peyronie's disease is not a static problem; it changes over time, sometimes slowly and sometimes rapidly, but it seldom stays the same for very long. Most people take the position that it is far better to use Alternative Medicine to treat the Peyronie's problem while it is still small and manageable to keep it that way.   TRH 

Can I get relief from fibrosis of the corpus spongiosum with Super CP Serum?

I've been diagnosed with fibrosis of the Corpus spongiosum. Have you heard of any relief of this with the topical Super CP Serum and/or Vitamin E spray? Any other possibilities?

Thanks,

Spencer G.

Greetings Spenser,

The corpus spongiosum is cylindrical mass of tissue in the penis through which the urethra passes, located in the bottom half of the penis below the two corpora cavernosae. There are irregular cases of Peyronie's disease that start as fibrosis in the corpus spongiosum and later extend toward and into the tunica albuginea layer that surrounds the corpora cavernosae. At this point the fibrosis becomes Peyronie's disease.

When you ask about using topical Super CP Serum and Vitamin E oil you are forgetting about the most important component of the topical applications, and that is PMD DMSO. Using Super CP Serum and Vitamin E oil by themselves is fairly useless since they lack the ability to penetrate the tissue to get down to where the fibrosis problem is located. So please be sure to include DMSO in this topical treatment, always applying the DMSO last. When you order from PDI you will be instructed how to use all of these products for greatest effectiveness.

How To Cure Hidradenitis Suppurativa With

What do you think is the best route for Peyronie's treatment?

I am a 39 year old male that developed peyronie's about 1 year ago. Much of the curvature has gone away, but my erection still bends slightly down (compared to having a natural upward curve previously), and it has a dimple on the underside of the shaft. Most of the pain has gone away. At the recommendation of my urologist, I was taking oral Vitamin E of about 400 IU daily, and added Wobezym (6 pills daily), Serrapeptase (120,000 IU/2 daily), and bromelain (1000mg daily of 2,000 GDU/g).

I was considering ordering the medium plan along with the stretching DVD. Do you think this would be the best route to go? How long do you think it would take to see results?

Thanks.

Tony

Greetings Tony,

Judging your progress simply by noting good or bad changes in the penis curvature is not a good strategy.  Naturally it is the bent penis that gets your attention and it is what you most want to see improved, but it is a poor way to evaluate what is going on with the Peyronie's disease treatment you are doing.

The fact is that the curved penis is not the primary problem of Peyronie's disease; the primary problem of Peyronie's disease is the internal scar or Peyronie's plaque that causes the penile distortion.  The size, shape, density and surface features of the internal Peyronie's plaque this is what you need to measure and evaluate to determine if your effort is being truly successful or not.

Another fact is that your Peyronie's plaque can be worsening and your curved penis can become straighter at the same time this is happening.  This happens when the growing PD scar tissue balances out the internal stresses and tissue pulling that takes place because of scar material.  This is not a good thing.  I f you have a large and complex interplay of PD scar material that is so arranged that your penis is straight, is this really desirable? Is it a good thing? If you say, “What do I care if the scars are getting worse?  Just as long as the curve is getting better and I can continue to have sex.”    The answer to that attitude is to understand that Peyronie's disease is not a static problem and over time it will worsen.  You might eventually have the currently balanced scars become imbalanced and they can begin to pull the penis in a weird and abnormal way resulting in a worse curve than you had at the beginning of your problem. 

Of course, I have no way to know the condition of your internal scar tissue.  But then again, neither do you unless you understand this concept and are paying attention to what is really important.  Your internal scar material could be totally reversed, it is possible, but you will never know and will remain at a distinct disadvantage for as long as you ignore what is going on inside. 

Only you will know the best treatment route to take by noting the response of your scar in terms of changes of the size, shape, density and surface features of your internal Peyronie's plaque.  The medium plan is a good one to work with.  Take it as you are given suggestions when you receive your order and every 7-10 days evaluate your shaft for changes in the scar size, shape, density and surface features.  Increase the dosage of your plan until you see definite and clear reduction of the size, shape, density and surface features of the plaque material.   This is the very best way to know you are following the best plan of action for your recovery. 

When a man follows a very aggressive Peyronies plan and does so faithfully, and finally reaches the correct dosage by slow incremental increase of dosage while evaluating the size, shape, density and surface features of his fibrous Peyronie's plaque, he can expect to see changes as quickly as 7-10 days after he has reached his correct dosage level.  Notice, I did not say his PD would be gone, just that his scar would begin to be reabsorbed and start to get smaller as determined by these various measures.   After that point it is usually 2-6 months of care to have all the tissue changes occur that will take place. 

By the way, you might be getting better results with Neprinol.  I also recommend that a good treatment strategy includes a variety of Peyronies disease exercises along with using vitamins, minerals, enzymes and herbs to support your natural recovery. TRH

How should I improve my success of Peyronies treatment using vitamin E?

Sir i am 28 years old and i have bp from last 10 years taking olmat am (atagonist +amophline) tab sir my penis is bend towards left and upwards also for curing this i took vitamin e 400 capsule for 1 month yes results were OK means when i take my penis becomes straight and slight improvement as well but when i stopped taking vitamin e it started bending again for how long should i take vitamin e 400 and will it increase bp please guide sir as i will get married within 6 months please please please please

Greetings, 

From the limited information you provide I do not have a good idea how you should proceed since I do not know anything about the kind of vitamin E you used.   So I cannot comment on that element of what you have done to receive limited and temporary success. 

However, based on my 10 years of experience treating Peyronie’s disease I suggest that you expand and deepen your plan to include more therapy than using a solo therapy of just vitamin E.    My suggestion is to investigate how to improve your results by increasing your Peyronies treatment after reading how to start Peyronie’s treatment on the PDI website and using any of the plans you see available that make sense to you.

If you a specific question about treatment of Peyronie’s disease I would be pleased to assist you.  TRH

 

 

How do I find the Peyronie’s scar?

I was diagnosed with peyronies about 10 years ago. I had the classic lump and my penis had a bend to it. It isnt super bad but enough that I want it gone as much as possible. I took potaba and vitamin E for several months with no real progress. I cannot feel any scars or lumps at this time but it seems that my curve may be worsening all of the sudden. I do not have pain and can have intercourse but would really like to have as close to a normal penis as possible. Is there a way to treat my condition after so many years? How do I find the Peyronie's scar and what would be the best action to take on an extremely tight budget? I am now 41 years old and in good health other then some problems with my discs in my upper back.

Thank you so much,

Phil

Greetings Phil,

POTABA and vitamin E do not make much of impact on Peyronie's disease; what you were given was a desperation prescription just to give you something to do and get you out of the office.

It is not at all uncommon for an older case of Peyronie's disease to continue to deteriorate and develop an increased penis curvature.  I have worked over the years with many men whose PD is in the 5-15 year range and they are still able to make improvement based on the concept that the Peyronie's plaque is still capable of change – for bad and for good.

Order "Peyronie's Disease Handbook" to learn how to find and define the PD scar since it is essential that you know all the physical features of it since you will use that information to determine how to manage your treatment program.

On a limited budget I would suggest starting with the small plan and working it aggressively against frequently monitoring your condition for making changes in the size, shape, density and surface features of your scars.  TRH

Now that my Peyronie's disease is gone should I continue taking the supplements?

I have had Peyronie's for approximately two years. I had about a 45 degree bend upwards and about a a 15-20 degree bend to the right. I noticed that I had a large scar along the top of the shaft about 2″ and a small nodule about 1/4 inch in diameter on the right side. I obtained your gentle manual penis stretching video and started with the exercises and took PABA, Vitamin E, Nattokinase as you suggested in the instructions PDI provides. I continued with this stretching exercise and the vitamins and enzymes and have now straightened out the shaft. I do not feel any more scar tissue. I was wondering if I am going to have to continue on with the PABA? I will continue to take the other natural vitamins and supplements as I was taking before i developed the Peyronie's, but I did not ever before take PABA so i wonder if I should continue with that. Thanks for your help.

Greetings,

First of all, congratulations on your successful treatment of Peyronie's disease. Many people doubt that they can do what you did. I get this kind of report from people around the world several times a week telling me that they have recovered from their terrible Peyronie's problem by following the simple directions and ideas found on the PDI website. Good for you.

the kidney disease solution

I doubt you will have to continue with the PABA or continue doing the gentle manual penis stretching technique now that your Peyronie's plaque is gone. Since 2002 I have been consulting with men about Peyronie's disease and in that time we have had some really great results. In all these years I have never had anyone come back to me a year or two or five years later to report that their PD has come back when they stopped taking the PDI Peyronies treatment plan they used to recover from their problem.

However, I would say that half of the men who get over their Peyronie's disease say they will continue with certain parts of it because they believe they get general health benefits from certain products (Neprinol, nattokinase, vitamin E, acetyl-L-carnitine, etc.) I have recovered from my own Peyronie's disease now for about ten years and still take Neprinol, Omega T, and vitamin E because I am convinced of their broad health benefits.

Again congratulations on your great Peyronie's treatment story. TRH

Should I use Neprinol as part of my Peyronie’s disease treatment?

Dear Dr. Herazy:

I hope this message finds you and yours in good health.

It has been only three months that I “found” the PDI website after being suffering Peyronie’s disease for more than four years. I was diagnosed back in 2008 approximately when I went for pain on erections (reflected mostly on the front of the penis) to the current curvature of approximately 25 degrees upwards bending a bit to the right as well.

Due to the initial treatment in my country (Cuba) I got initially Vitamin E and then even direct injections on the plaque of Interferon and sessions of laser.  None stopped the bending process after pain with erection disappeared.  Then I stopped using Vitamin E, suspended laser and the injections and changed to an urologist that has been working on using natural pills made from bee’s propoleo.  I have been taking these pills for more than two years before going to bed (and at least three hours after my last meal).  This Dr. also used as a method the measurement of the curvature and sporadic ultra-sounds to keep track of the degrees of the curvature.  I must say that in more than two years the curvature seems to keep being of the same degree (not healing but not bending either).  Unfortunately for me and others this Dr. emigrated.  He was substituted by another urologist who seems to have more faith in continuous ultra-sounds to compare the process of growth of the plaque.  I skipped going to consultation like a year ago.  It must be pessimism or lack of faith that I will solve this disease.

I have gone through serious stress in my own marriage and I feel somehow ashamed that I would not be able to find a woman that will cope with this disease in my country if I decide to divorce my wife. I have had all the reasons to divorce my wife but I feel stuck with her. You know, being from a Latino country and culture machismo is a big thing.  I am 52 BTW.

Since I found about PDI I designed my own plan which is currently as follows:
1- I am taking daily at breakfasts:
a- PABA (500 Mg)
b- Acetyl L-Carnitine (500 mg)
c- Glucosamine with MSM (500 mg)

2- I also take daily around 3 PM: MSM (500 mg)

3- I take as well a pill daily 3 hours after dinner of Propoleo

I do not have enough resources but I am ready to pay for whatever even if I have to sell my belongings.  So my question to you is what you would suggest someone in my stage of Peyronie’s disease to buy?  I know I should buy your books (re: “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex and Peyronie’s Disease Handbook) but what else, please?

Should I use Neprinol?  Should I go back to Vitamin E being added to everything I am using already?

Being in the Caribbean (and subject to a US Embargo) the only way I would have to get all I need will be through friends living in the States visiting my country twice a year.  I will have to reveal my disease to one of them so to seek his help.  I am ready to do whatever it takes.

Best regards,

Greetings M.C.,

So sorry to learn of the difficulty you are having in finding and using a good Peyronie’s disease treatment.  You are to be commended for working so diligently to help yourself.

While I understand why you have been forced to try to duplicate a PDI-type treatment for Peyronie’s disease using substitute products since you cannot get them from PDI in the U.S., this is a great problem.   It is very likely that the quality and subsequent quantity of actual useable nutrients that are available to your body are not sufficient to help your tissue heal and eliminate the Peyronie’s plaque.    Just because the label might say there is 500 mg. of PABA or acetyl-L-carnitine in a product does not mean it is of sufficient quality to help your tissue heal, or that it is even present in the pill.   This is why I insist that men who are serious about eliminating their PD will only use those products that I have had good success with against Peyronies.   Correction of this problem is too important to take a chance that you could be using questionable or poor quality therapy. 

As a general comment concerning what you are currently doing,  a basic problem is that you are only using internal-type therapy items and no external therapies such as DMSO,topical copper and vitamin E, manual stretching or non-penetrating acupuncture treatments.

Another general comment is that you are apparently taking those therapies you currently have available but you have not tested or compared during use against the size, shape, density or surface features of the PD scars to determine the correct dosage.   In other words, you are swallowing a lot of pills hoping something good will happen to you.  But that is not how the PDI process works.   I want you to know the exactly correct dosage to make the best progress possible.

Yes, both books are a wealth of practical information; they will help you toward your recovery.  

Neprinol is a great Peyronie’s therapy, but by itself I have not seen it be very effective; it must be combined with other therapies for maximum benefits to occur.  Please refer to the PDI website for more information about this aspect of treatment.In addition, when you order Neprinol from PDI you will be given specific information about how to use it for maximum recovery benefit.  See Peyronie’s disease treatment with Neprinol.

Using vitamin E requires that it is the right kind of vitamin E and it is of excellent quality.   I cannot advise about using what you currently have been taking because I have no idea if it will be good enough to help you; it could be a waste of your time, effort and money.

Lastly, you are not the only person who we help receive PDI therapy products from visiting relatives.  Please send me an email to alert me when you are ready to place your order and I will see to it that we get this done as economically and effectively as possible for you.  Please keep me informed and I will do all I can to help you.  TRH     

 

Can you help me with my Peyronies treatment and my heavy nutritional intake?

Dr. Herazy:

We spoke a couple of years ago when I was changing careers from being a long-time financial adviser to becoming a physician (either a holistic MD, Emergency Room Doctor, or possibly now a nutritionist or orthomolecular medicine practitioner). I am now in pre-med classes at age 60, and other than the Peyronie’s Disease and a small left-side inguinal hernia, in stellar health. In the past two years, my physical workouts stopped due to a rigorous study and work schedule, then the hernia appeared. Due to the cautionary advice of my trainer, I now work out carefully 3 times a week, have excellent labs, and do Qi Gong (ancient Chinese healing martial art) and Myofascial Release and other stretches every morning. I look and feel much younger than my age. The small, left side inguinal hernia appeared in November 2011 from working as an EMT on a transport ambulance, and I took a leave of absence in December 2011 pending surgery, which is currently pending with my employer’s workers compensation insurer. I was advised that it should be resolved by October. I currently take 71 different natural supplements daily in pill, tincture, liquid and powder form to the tune of 150 doses each day and have since 2006. This was carefully designed by a medical practitioner under an anti-aging and naturally detoxification protocol from the work of Dr. Gary Null, PhD.

According to my former urologist, whom I first consulted since he performed a vasectomy on me in 1994(?), the popping sound I heard during intercourse several years ago (2008 or 2009) was the beginning of the Peyronies issue, though for about seven years prior I had noticed a slight weakening of my erection. Now, my penis curves downward almost 90 degrees during engorgement, and it appears as if there is an invisible ring at the base of my penis constricting it. During intercourse there is no pain (there was some initial burning sensation inside my penis as I recall after the incident), and I am still able to have somewhat satisfactory intercourse, reaching ejaculation, with my female partner. My penis does become flaccid at times during intercourse and it certainly is not as pleasurable as before the incident. According to my former urologist’s caution, I keep in mind that intercourse could cause further damage so my partner and I are careful.

I want to return to having a healthy erection and intercourse experience, which I did throughout my entire sex life since late teenage-hood. I take 800 mg of pharmaceutical grade natural Vitamin E daily as part of my supplements protocol above. For reasons other than Peyronie’s, to move away from allopathic medicine, I changed doctors to a highly recommended holistic MD, board certified in many specialties, who just happened to have experience with a severe Peyronie’s patient (this was a plus though not my primary reason for choosing him). He had me take a highly concentrated form of pharmaceutical grade PABA (Potaba) because he said it would help eliminate scar tissue anywhere in my body. Only with a prescription I ordered it from a top pharmacy in Canada and over several months, built up to a course of 8 Grams (I believe) a day with little resulting correction, though the change was not scientifically measured. Before reordering a third time in August 2011, I let my doctor know that it did not resolve the issue, though it may have helped, and gave him your information. He then told me to follow through with you.

Before calling you a couple of years ago I read the book of the nutritionist with whom you treated. I contacted him several times but he did not respond. I then called you and you said your body of work went greatly beyond his, but with all of my occupation change and education activities, I am just now getting back to you for a plan of action.

How do I start on a definitive course of action to reverse this structural condition? I would be glad to share with you my entire supplement protocol so you may see what I am taking and how it may be supplemented.

With appreciation,

Peter A. Lindsley

Greetings Peter,

Good to hear from you again.  I was wondering what you might be doing.  Thank you for the interesting and detailed Peyronie’s disease history.

You are not the first man who reports to me that he is in exemplary physical condition, yet Peyronies develops after injury.   The only way I can explain it is that someone who is in perfect health, following a perfect dietary and nutritional program, would still be subject to injury by falling down the stairs, hitting his thumb with a hammer, an automobile accident – or injury to the penis during intercourse.  Being healthy and well nourished does not make you bullet-proof to trauma.      

Many MDs approve of the PDI concept of treatment for this problem.  It makes sense and it is based on documented research results.   I find that when MDs develop Peyronie’s disease they eventually come to PDI for treatment since there is nothing for them in their own medical camp to use with confidence.  I work with MDs for their personal recovery.

A pharmaceutical grade of PABA is not POTABA; they are two different things.   PABA is considered a B vitamin.  POTABA is PABA with a potassium molecule attached to it and is considered a drug, no longer a B vitamin.  They are similar but not the same thing.   The early Peyronie’s research work that was done with PABA got good clinical results, so naturally the MDs  assumed that POTABA (the drug that they can control because it is a prescription item) would work better.   POTABA causes many side effects and few men can take it long enough to complete the intense dosage of three months.  You are far better off using PABA the way we recommend it.

What evidence do you have that this Peyronie’s treatment concept is effective?

If as you say 50% of men self heal from peyronies disease, what empirical evidence do you have that any of your treatments are actually effective? Testimonials of cures are to be expected in any group of men whether they take your medication or a placebo. What evidence do you have that your medication is better than a placebo?

 

Greetings,

Thank you for your valuable and interesting question.

Empirical evidence is taken from or by way of naturalistic experience or observation, as well direct experimental procedures.  It serves to defy or support a scientific theory or a working hypothesis that is under study.

For those who have spent any time reading the PDI website, you know that I have repeatedly reported that at this time it is not possible for me to conduct research or scientific investigation as is conducted by the government, large universities, medical research hospitals or pharmaceutical companies. I do the best I can under the circumstances I work under.  I am limited to the reports and communication about success and failure I receive from men who choose to follow the PDI concept of Peyronie's treatment.  This information is provided to me on a volunteer basis by men during their self-directed treatment, so it is understood that I do not have any way to control how each plan is conducted or to verify the accuracy of the information that is received.  

When early medical research was done with natural therapies like vitamin E, or acetyl-L-carnitine, or PABA, or quercetin, on Peyronie's disease the effects were often positive.   You can read these early reports in which all of these were found to have positive effects to reduce the Peyronies plaque or reduce advancement of penile distortion.  They all seem to end with the comment that would go something like, "Further investigation should be done based on these positive outcomes to verify these results."   Of course, since there is no profit or advantage in a drug company testing a common nutrient, no further testing is ever done.  No one is interested in the results of combining natural enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and performing gentle manual stretching because these ideas represent no business opportunity.

From the information I have gathered over the last 10 years while working with men who have Peyronies, I estimate that about half of these men have had their Peyronie's disease for 18 months or less, and the other half have had their Peyronie's disease for more than 18 months (many start their PDI-based treatment with a history of Peyronie's disease of five years duration, and a few have had their problem for 10 years or more).   Based on my feedback from these men, there does not seem to be much difference in the rate or degree of improvement between these two groups, or in the types of problems or difficulties they encounter while under care.   It seems that the body is able to heal or correct a newer (18 months or less) case of PD about as easily as an older (18 months or more) case of PD.   This 18-month time reference point is important because it is rather commonly maintained that any case of PD that will spontaneously heal or self-correct will do so before the 18th month; after 18 months the PD is considered permanent.  This is the reason so many surgeons will wait until a case of Peyronie's disease has reached the 18 month mark, since at this time the condition is thought to be stable and permanent.  

When I worked to develop the treatment plan that eventually became the PDI concept of Peyronies treatment I had my PD for about 18 months.  Many men who report back to me their positive results have had their problem for 2-4-6 years or more.  All of these cases are considered permanent and stable by medical standards.  Any change or reversal of the size, shape, density or surface features of  their PD scar mass or change in their deformed or curved penis would have to be considered clinically significant.  

At this time I am not interested in conducting blind studies with placebos with men who have Peyronies.   After 10 years of work I am at a point where I still improving and expanding the PDI treatment protocol.  It would be wrong for me to conduct research in this way that would deny every man the opportunity to reverse his problem.  Keep in mind that I am not attempting to make pigs fly; the PDI concept is really not all that extraordinary or extreme.  All we are attempting to do is to increase or support the natural ability of the body to heal and repair PD that tends to occur in about 50% of the men who develop this condition.  For many men who take the time to read the information on this website the idea of natural healing makes sense.   I suppose it all comes down to the question of, "Do you think it is possible to help the body heal if you improve your nutrition and do a few common sense things that assist the process of recovery like tissue detoxification, simple stretching and increase of blood flow?"  

You are viewing this work while it is its early stages, as the men are told when they read the PDI website.   Testimonials and personal communication is what many medical ideas have developed from in the past.  You are seeing this idea at that stage of development.  I do not know if that should be a reason for condemnation of this work.  Many men who need treatment for Peyronies disease understand the basic concept of supporting the ability to heal and repair and give the process a try.  Many who do it well find good results.

I completely understand your concern and interest in evidence of treatment efficacy, and comparison to placebo response.   However, keep in mind that all the glowing praise and approval for a drug that passes through government, university, medical research hospital, or pharmaceutical company research is no guarantee of effectiveness or safety of those same drugs or procedures.  So much of the kind of proof that you ask about seems to make very little difference to the people who use those approved drugs in the real world.  So many of the drugs that pass through rigorous research tests, and perform so much better than placebos, only come to fail to get results with actual patients or are found to be dangerous because of the side-effects and dangerous complications they cause. 

Again, thank you for the opportunity to explore and discuss this question.  Perhaps in time this idea will be taken up by a large research group when I have gathered more evidence and weight of public opinion.   TRH

How many units of vitamin E should I take for my Peyronies?

Hi,

After reading much of the literature on Vitamin E treatment I find it hard to conclude how many IU’s of the vitamin one needs to take on daily basis ??

Thanks
Dave

 

Greetings Dave,

With the naturally occurring and full spectrum vitamin E that is available on the PDI website there is much less cause for concern than when the synthetic forms of vitamin E are used.  All the nasty reports of bad reactions to vitamin E involved the use of synthetic vitamin E.

It is best to keep your daily dosage down to around 1200 IU of vitamin E when used in conjunction with a larger plan of diversified therapies.   When you place your order with PDI for any therapy products you will be given complete and detailed information how to use whatever you order.  TRH

What is the difference bewteen the two vitamin E products you use for Peyronie’s disease treatment?

Hello,

I was wondering about these two products:  Vitamin E Factor 400/400 and the other is  Maxi-Gamma E.

I am probably not understanding this correctly which is why I am emailing, but they seem to both be vitamin e.   Is that correct?   If so why take both? I would be taking too much vitamin e if I take both.   If I am not correct could you explain the difference.

Thank you
Carl

 

Greetings Carl,

Yes both are vitamin E products.   But, vitamin E is not one thing; vitamin E is actually a family of eight different but related fat-soluble compounds that exist in diverse forms, all widely found in the plant kingdom. There are two basic groups of vitamin E, the tocopherol family and the tocotrienol family; each of these two forms has four subdivisions called alpha, beta, delta and gamma, for a total of eight variations or forms of vitamin E.    Different forms of vitamin E are found in different parts of a plant; the green parts of a plant contain mostly alpha tocopherol and the seed germ and bran contain mostly tocotrienols.

The product Vitamin E Factor 400/400 is very unique in the world of nutrition because it contains a large amount of all eight members of the entire vitamin E family for broad based support of this important vitamin group. 

The product Maxi-Gamma E is also unique because it primarily contains gamma tocopherol, the one member of the vitamin E family that is most responsible for soft tissue healing hence its importance to Peyronie's disease treatment.   

PDI makes both of these products available – and most men who follow a successful PDI Peyronies treatment plan will use both products  typically taking one of these in the AM and the other in the PM.

Why do you think that taking both would be too much?   Overdosing with vitamin E occurs at a relatively low dose only when synthetic vitamin E is taken.  PDI only supplies natural forms of vitamin E that are organic.  Please see this article   Peyronie's Disease Treatment and Vitamin E for a discussion about the silly vitamin E scare that is going around simply because people do not understand the story behind vitamin E.  You will understand the background of how poor research and bias maligns even a naturally occurring vitamin that is essential for health.

Unfortunately most vitamin E supplements contain only alpha-tocopherol. This information should make it all the more obvious why a Peyronies disease victim needs to carefully choose supplements that contain the complete vitamin E family of tocopherols plus tocotrienols and any that are  especially rich in gamma-tocopherol. Like all families, each member has certain strengths and abilities, requiring a variety of workers to support the necessary tissue changes needed to improve the health and resistance of tissue damaged in PD. Here is a list of the eight forms of vitamin E:

Tocopherol group

Alpha-tocopherol
Beta-tocopherol
Gamma-tocopherol
Delta-tocopherol

Tocotrienol group

Alpha-tocotrienol
Beta-tocotrienol
Gamma-tocotrienol
Delta-tocotrienol

Each of the two forms has its own area of use or activity in the body. The tocopherol forms function as strong antioxidants, with the alpha form being the most active of the four subdivisions. Vitamin E, like all antioxidants, protect at the cellular level against the effects of potentially damaging by-products of metabolism, called free radicals. A free radical is a molecule that has been involved in a chemical process in the body, and in so doing becomes unstable when it loses an electron. Free radicals can cause cell damage by attracting electrons from stable molecules in other areas in the body, thus making additional cells also unstable.

Unless they are connected to an antioxidant, highly unstable free radicals attack the polyunsaturated fatty acids of cell membranes in a chain reaction. This process of losing and gaining electrons might contribute to the development of heart disease, cancer; Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, premature aging and cataracts and even excess scar formation.

Peyronie's and vitamin E connection

The tocotrienol form of vitamin E has shown superior action in maintaining arterial health because of its ability to reduce plaque and fibrous tissue infiltration in damaged arterial walls. This same ability is suspected to result in reduction of scar and fibrous tissue buildup in other parts of the body.

Vitamin E has 75% worldwide approval as a first-line treatment of Peyronie's disease, yet its effectiveness has not been proven to scientific standards. It is the most popular of the alternative treatments used. Vitamin E is perhaps the most researched and tested of the alternative methods for treatment of PD, and yet it has not been researched or tested very much. It has been heavily researched and tested for other health conditions that have the same or similar scar and fibrous tissue formation, and it has proven its effectiveness. Use of vitamin E is based not only on the positive results it gets with Peyronie's disease, but also the positive results scored against other health conditions similar to it.

Maybe your family doctor or local urologist doesn’t recommend using vitamin E for PD, but you can now see there is a lot of science backing up this idea, and there are thousands of doctors from around the world who use it successfully. You are now aware of some of the reasons it is used as a first-line of treatment against Peyronie's disease. If you were going to use only one therapy to improve the health of your tissue and increase your chance of repairing some of the damage of PD, vitamin E should be considered as that one thing.

Using vitamin E – and therefore vitamin C – is the perhaps the most commonly recommended conservative method to assist the healing of the PD scar in traditional medical practice, as well as alternative medical practice.

I hope this information helps you understand the role of vitamin E in Peyronie's disease treatment.  TRH

Which PDI treatment plan would be beneficial to my Peyronie’s disease?

I had been having problems with pain upon erection and lumps along the shaft of my penis for several months and then I started having a lot more pain.

I went to a urologist who initially told me he couldn't find anything abnormal but during a subsequent follow-up visit he told me that I have Peyronies Disease and that the lumps were plaque formation and there wasn't much I could do about it. He advised oral Vitamin E (which I take religiously) and waiting to see if it got better without injections or Peyronie's surgery.

I had never heard of this disease so I have been researching it. I do not have any obvious outward sign like scars or any curvature but I can feel the plaque deposits and have very painful erections.  Sometimes there is pain even without erections. I don't remember having any specific injury or trauma to my penis during sex but sex definitely makes the pain worse. I am really worried that although there is no curvature now, there will be if I follow the doctor's "wait and see" plan.

I already feel a "pulling upward" sensation with erections. I would like to know which of your treatment plans would likely be most beneficial to me. The biggest problem is the pain and the lumps that seem to produce this "tugging or pulling" feeling. My first thought is to jump in with both feet into the most aggressive treatment you have but maybe that is not the correct thing to do. I would really appreciate any guidance you can give me.

Greetings,

Thank you for your question.

You must stop doing anything that causes your Peyronie's disease to be more painful.  Pain indicates that you are again stressing the deep plaque or scar tissue of your Peyronies, and this is harmful and will delay your recovery.  This does not specifically mean stopping sexual intercourse; it only implies you must determine what you  are doing during intercourse, or how you engage in intercourse, that causes physical stress upon the penile tissue and change that aspect of your technique.   This is a huge, diverse and important subject, and for this reason I suggest you should consult a book I wrote, "Peyronie's Disease and Sex."    

Taking vitamin E by itself, or taking the wrong kind of vitamin E, no matter how religiously you take it will not help your PD.  You must use the right type of vitamin E, take it at the right time and in combination with other important therapies for it to help your problem.  Please refer to the section in the PDI website about vitamin E that covers this important subject. 

Penile distortion can occur immediately in Peyronie's disease, but it can also take months or years to develop.  Further,  I have communicated with many men whose PD distortion suddenly worsened after being static for a few years.  For this reason you must not assume your problem will always look the way it looks at this time; they usually worsen over time.    

No one can tell you ahead of time which PD plan will work best for you.   Please read "Do you simply recommend the same treatment products to all Peyronies cases?"   You will then understand that all treatment must be unique and driven by specific response of your Peyronie's plaque or scar.  Lastly, it would appear that you think that the Peyronie's scar is located on surface of the shaft; it is not.     The Peyronies plaque and scar are terms for the same fibrous material that is found deep within the penis below the skin surface; in the world of PD the scar and plaque mean the same thing.  The scar or plaque are not visible from the exterior since they are internal.

 Let me know if I can help you in any way with eliminating your PD scar with Alternative Medicine.  TRH    

Information about vitamin E and Peyronie’s treatment

Dear Dr Herazy,

I am a GP in the UK.   I have a patient with Peyronies, who has been following your advice (through your publications and web site) for some time. He is very happy with your advice and his results.  He asked if I could ask you some specific questions?

He has been using vitamin E for some time, and feels it does benefit him, however given the recent data from the SELECT trial, he is concerned if he should continue, he wondered what your advice might be.   Also, he wanted to know if you had any position on the use of fish oils ( omega 6-3) and activated vit D ( cholecalciferol) in the management of PD.

I have been trying to guide him through the available data. He would have contacted you directly but asked if I would do so, partly because I suspect he feels it is more 'official' through me and partly because I understand he does not have internet access at the moment.

I'd be grateful for any advice you can offer.

I would prefer that you do not use my name when you reply to this email, for confidentiality reasons.  

Best wishes.

Dr EXXX    SXXXXX

Hurley Clinic

 

Greetings Dr. SXXXXX,

Of course.   Many people have been concerned about the findings of the SELECT trial of vitamin E, although if they knew a few details of that report they would be far less concerned.    They would understand that the conclusions they cite are misguided and based on several false premises that alter the conclusions that should be drawn.

Since this important topic bears a detailed explanation that I have already answered at length, allow me to direct you to my article, "Peyronie's Disease Treatment and Vitamin E." 

In regard to omega 3, 6 and 9 oils, we have always taken the stand that they are very helpful to Peyronie's treatment, especially in the early stages to reduce and control the inflammatory process that often causes pain.  Please refer to the discussion of Omega T and the essential fatty acids.   TRH 

What do I start doing to prevent my Peyronie’s disease from getting worse?

I was just told last week that I have pd..I have some pain that is light, no curving, but my erections are weak on the left side at the base with some mild ED. What do I start doing to prevent it from getting worse?  I saw my urologist who told me to take vitamin E 1000 IU daily.  Please advise me to help it not get any worse…thanks

Larry Baldwin


Greetings Larry,

I have never seen vitamin E by itself help anyone with Peyronie's disease.  Vitamin E is a great therapy but it must be combined with a variety of other therapies to make a positive and helpful impact on a difficult problem like PD.  Besides that, you cannot just take a general or lesser grade of vitamin E and expect it to work for you;  a pharmaceutical grade is required.  PDI has two great therapeutic grades of vitamin E available on the website.

You should by reading about Peyronie's disease on the PDI website, especially starting with the page "Start Peyronie's Treatment."  

When you have a specific question about treatment of Peyronie's disease please let me know.   TRH

Will a combination of Neprinol and vitamin E be effective for my Peyronie’s disease?

Do you think that a combination of Neprinol and vitamin E will be effective in helping my Peyronie's disease?

Greetings,

There is no way to tell ahead of time if any Peyronie's treatment plan will be effective.   No matter what plan you start with, it is always a guess to know at the start of care if it will help.   The eventual treatment plan a man uses to eliminate his PD is determined by its ability to influence the PD scar.  Each person has different needs, and this prevents one treatment idea from being the solution for everyone.    It is necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of any plan by looking for changes in the size, shape, density and surface features of your scars while you following your treatment.   You can start with any type of plan you believe might help you, but it is the response of the  scar tissue that guides and determines type of therapy that is used and at what dosage.

Your question tells me you have not spent much time on the PDI website.   You really should go over the PDI home page and follow the links you will find there.  If you are interested in recovering from your PD it is a great way to get an education how Alternative Medicine can be used to increase your ability to heal and repair the Peyronie's plaque that is causing your bent penis.

Using Neprinol and vitamin E is a small combination that is far too limited to reach into the problem of Peyronie's disease.  I have never heard of anyone who used this combination and got results.   As an example, if you look at the PDI small plan you will see there are seven different ingredients in that plan – and it is called small.   I am fully aware that many men can have financial problems that limit the amount of therapy they use, yet these same men also want a Peyronie's treatment plan that gets results.

You see, it is not really what I think about using Neprinol and vitamin E that is important.   All I can tell you is that no one has ever told me that taking only these two therapies has helped his PD.    Usually, the plan must be larger to be effective.   How large does your plan have to be?   I don't know.   You have to figure that out for yourself while you are working with your problem.  I suggest you start here reading this website of the Peyronie's Disease Institute to  learn how this is done.   TRH

How long until I see any improvement with my Peyronies problem?

I'm 18 years old and I have PD. I think I had it for 2-3 years, really not sure. It curves up from my pelvic bone to the middle and curves down from the middle to tip. So it kind of looks like an arch or rainbow. It also looks really dark, I'm white Italian and it shouldn't be really dark like that.

I really don't want to go to the doctors, I asked to go to the urologist but kept getting questioned why. I came to the conclusion that I'm probably not going to go so I want to help myself.  I want to buy "Vitamin E: Unique-Oil – 1 oz pump bottle", "DMSO – PMD DMSO Gel", and "Super CP Serum".  I been using vitamin e capsule gels and using the gel inside as a moisturizer with baby oil for the past few days.

I want to know how to use the vitamin e properly for your mixture. Do I mix them all together and put it on? Do I use them one at a time? Do I have to be flaccid? Do I use after shower I get out of shower and leave on overnight? Also, how do you rub it in and for how long? Will the box definitely be "Discreet Shipping" even if I don't buy a plan and just those 3 bottles?

I live with my parents and my brothers, sister and my friends are constantly over so I don't want anyone to see the box if I don't get it first. I can just tell my mom the stuff is for my scar and my face because I used to use the capsule gels for that.

Also, how long do you think until it fixes it and how long until I see any improvement? I want to get with a girl and embarrassed to get close to her because of it.

Thank you

 

Greetings young man,

You need to get over your embarrassment and seek out a medical opinion and have your condition formally diagnosed. 

Why are you mixing vitamin E with baby oil?   Please use the products as instructed when you receive your order from PDI; all products come with complete and correct instructions for use to treat Peyronie's disease. 

Using only DMSO, vitamin E oil (Unique E) and copper peptides  (Super CP Serum) is a very limited and lopsided approach to good Alternative Medicine treatment; good treatment usually demands both internal (PABA, vitamin C and E, systemic enzymes), as well as external therapies.

Yes, all products received from PDI come discreetly boxed, with no outside identification that would embarrass you.  However, inside the box we freely identify and discuss Peyronies disease.

There is no way ahead of time to tell you how long it will take to recover from your PD, or even if you will do so.  It is a very difficult problem to remedy. Get your parents involved in your treatment so you are not doing this alone and you are able to mount the kind of aggressive treatment that is usually most effective. TRH 

What is a good vitamin E for Peyronie’s treatment?

I was diagnosed with Peyronie's several years ago and my doc told me to take Vitamin E. In a few weeks, the symptoms cleared up. My problem is that I've developed PD again, have seen another urologist who also suggested Vitamin E. The PD seems much worse this time around. My question..if I choose to simply take Vitamin E, can you recommend the exact(and very best) brand, dosage, etc. I'm still sexually active, but it is affecting my sex life and is very stressful. Any help you might offer would be greatly appreciated. Also, I have read/researched at great lengths on your site and may return if you cannot offer a possible solution based upon the info I've provided. Thank you very much, Bobby

Greetings Bobby,

Sorry to hear of your Peyronie's problem.

Vitamin E is one of the cornerstone Alternative Medicine therapies recommended by PDI.  You can read about using vitamin E for Peyronie's treatment on the PDI website.  However, it is not all that is usually needed to recover from this problem.  So often it is required that a man assemble a group of therapies to take all at the same time to finally increase the immune response of the body against this problem.

PDI has a shopping cart from which you can order a great vitamin E product that we have used for over ten years.   Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions about helping yourself with natural therapy.   TRH 

Do you think using vitamin E by itself will help my Peyronie’s disease?

Greetings Doctor,

My urologist recommended taking 400 I U of vitamin E daily when he first told me I had Peyronie's disease, although he was not too specific about the quality or type of vitamin E I should use, or anything else for that matter.  Before he ran out the door he did not say what the next step would be if that did not help me, but he did stress that I should return in six months for another visit.

Thank you for the helpful information about vitamin E on your Peyronies website.  At least I know now how to do it, and I will get mine from you so I know I will be taking the best vitamin E for this purpose.  I will try my doctors recommendation of just using vitamin E by itself and keep my fingers crossed.  Do you think using vitamin E  by itself will help my Peyronie's disease?   Paul

Greetings Paul,

No, I do not.  Vitamin E for Peyronies treatment is great, but it needs a lot of support from other kinds of therapy to get the job done.  And finger crossing has nothing to do with successfully treating your Peyronie's disease.  

Success is based on hard work, determination, dedication and focus to a broad based Alt Med plan that will increase your body's ability to heal and repair the Peyronie's scar.  I suggest you do all you can during these next six months to learn about your PD and the process of natural correction. The PDI treatment protocol has a high degree of success when it is done correctly.  The problem is that many men try to bastardize the PDI treatment protocol to save a few bucks, or is too lazy to do what is required, or is always looking for the easy way out.  I trust you are not that way.

Go ahead and follow your urologist's idea of using vitamin E as a solo therapy.  I have never heard of anyone who has been successful with this idea – and neither has your urologist.  He is just telling you to do that because that is what the text books tell him to say and he cannot get into trouble for repeating what is accepted current medical thinking. What is probably on his mind is that at your next office visit in six months he will be able to follow the same current medical thinking and tell you that you need Peyronie's surgery because the vitamin E did not work. They have a great thing going for themselves. 

I suggest you spend a little time on the PDI website educating yourself about the non-drug and non-surgical treatment of Peyronie's disease.  If you need any more information please let me know.  TRH     

 

 

Why is it you do not offer any guarantee?

I have Peyronies disease now since I discovered I was getting a bent penis in November last year. My doctor prescribed potaba but it has done nothing in almost 4 months of treatment and in fact it seems to have got worse. I also am taking vitamin e and c that I got from the health food store but again it has done nothing.

My penis is bending sideways and upwards and seems to have an indent underneath at the head of the penis. All very upsetting psychologically also.

I found your web site and read your treatment options.  Why is it you do not offer any guarantee of your treatment?

Alex

Greetings Alex,

You must be using the correct vitamin products in the correct way to gain a positive response.  Just because you got your vitamin E and C from the health food store does not mean that they were good products.  It is estimated that over 25% of vitamin and herbal supplements sold on the open market do not contain what the label says. Many have inferior grade synthetic products.  Not all vitamin E products are created equal, and many are not what they say they are. If you are using an inferior product (without knowing it) you will not get good results. That is why I strongly encourage any one who wants to treat his Peyronie's disease with Alternative Medicine products to get them from PDI for a few reasons:

  • High product quality – these are the same products I used when I successfully treated my own PD problem
  • Great prices and discounts
  • Fresh products since PDI is the largest buyer of several of the products we sell
  • Proven effectiveness – results since 2002
  • Consultation about your treatment – I cannot discuss your treatment, or answer your questions, if I do not have experience or confidence in outside therapy products

Using only vitamin E and vitamin C is a very limited and poorly designed Peyronie's treatment idea.  I have never heard of anyone getting results with that kind of plan.   These two vitamins are great products and serve an important part in many of the plans we use, but they cannot do the total job to eliminate the PD scar. I would never suggest to anyone to try using only only vitamin E and vitamin C as you did.   

Most men who go about using their own ideas and get their own products like you are doing make very little progress with their Peyronie's disease problem.  This is a complicated and difficult problem.  You will have to admit you are guessing at a lot of what you have done and your are experimenting on yourself at a time when you should be actively treating yourself.  On the PDI website we provide a tremendous amount of free services and information like this constantly updated Q&A section and a Peyronie's treatment forum, along with private emails to men from around the world. We make these resources available to men to support their effort to correct their own PD.  If you work with the PDI system of treatment I can assist you when ideas, information and suggestions based on my experience; you will not be working alone.

You ask about a guarantee.

Who do you know in the healthcare field who offers a guarantee for any procedure or therapy? Aspirins do not come with a guarantee.  Jock itch spray does not come with a guarantee.  Toothpaste does not come with a guarantee.  Foot supports do not come with a guarantee.  Surgery does not come with a guarantee.  No one in healthcare offers a guarantee because of the complexity and difficulty of what we are attempting to do.  Everything in health care is completely unpredictable.   When you go to your dentist and he puts some Novocain in your gum, during your dental procedure he will ask you frequently if your mouth is still numb, right?  He has to ask you if your mouth is numb because he cannot guarantee the Novocain will work for you, or if he got enough in your tissue, or if he put it in the right location, or if it is not wearing off sooner than it should.  Nothing in health care can be guaranteed. 

Only people who are trying to fool you offer a guarantee for their unscrupulous products.  I see many international companies ( like in Pakistan, India, Romania) who try to sell secret herbal products and guarantee results in 30-60 days.  I hear frequently from men who bought those pills, got no results, and got no response from those companies when they tried to get their guaranteed refund.  

Be very suspicious when you see some treatment offered with a guarantee especially for Peyronie's disease.

If you are interested in trying to help your body heal the Peyronie's scars, please let me know.   TRH 

Why are two different vitamin E products made available?

Why are 2 different Vitamin E sources (400/400 and Gamma E) suggested in your therapies?  What are the differences? Would only 1 suffice in an effort to help manage costs?

Greetings,

Your question about the reason for the two different types of vitamin E to treat Peyronie's disease is a common one.  Thank you for bringing it up again.

I cannot put an entire detailed answer to your question in this reply. Let me just comment that the Maxi-Gamma vitamin E is used because it provides a higher ratio of the Gamma type of vitamin E that is helpful in healing and removing scar tissue.  The other vitamin E product, Factor 400/400, is a balanced vitamin E providing all eight types of vitamin E that does not emphasize the Gamma type the way the other one does.   When used together they complement each other and work nicely to provide an excellent and highly concentrated source of vitamin E that will assist your body to correct your Peyronie's disease to the best of your ability. 

To get the full answer and to learn more about vitamin E in a Peyronies treatment plan, go to Vitamin E for Peyronies treatment

Sure, if you used only one type of vitamin E it would manage costs.  But, which one to use?  I do not have a clear answer on that one because I can make a good argument for both of them as being the one you should use if you were going to only use one. 

If you must use just one, then I suggest you experiment a bit by using one of the products in your overall plan to see how you respond, and then use the other one to see if you respond differently to it.  Of course, this is how I suggest that anyone approaches any of the therapies to see if it should be included in a therapy plan.  TRH

Change Peyronies Treatment Dosage

How to change Peyronie’s treatment

Starting Peyronies treatment dosage can be easy if you start by taking therapy products at the manufacturer’s suggested rate – perhaps for the first 14-21 days.  If this dosage causes a change in the size, shape, density and surface qualities of your scar(s), then that simple and small dosage is adequate to provide you with the help you need to eliminate your Peyronie’s disease scar formation.

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.

How to Change Peyronie’s Treatment If Not Effective

In 2002 I started working exclusively with men who have Peyronie’s disease. Since that time I have noticed a common pattern with men about 6-8 weeks after the start of their treatment with Alternative Medicine. This pattern occurs no matter the size of the PD treatment plan a man uses, or even with some personalized modification of a standard PDI plan based on personal needs.

It seems that after seeing some initial changes in the size, shape, density or surface quality of their scars at about 6-8 weeks of Peyronie's treatment, improvement and progress will often level off or plateau. It seems that most men assume that all recovery and progress remains on a level and constant course, like putting your foot on the accelerator of a car. When they begin to notice their improvement has slowed down or stopped, they are stumped about what to do next. They will not know what to do with their current plan to improve it or modify it to assure continuation of those early positive changes.

Time and again I have seen this pattern: Start care, make progress, slow down or stoppage of progress. What must be done is some modification of the initial treatment (usually increase of treatment in some way) to again stimulate the healing capability of the tissue. This can be expressed as: Increase care by increasing current therapy or adding new therapy, re-stimulate immune response, make additional progress, monitor for next slow down. What happens after the next slow down or stoppage can be expressed in the same way: Increase care again in a same or different way, re-stimulate immune response, monitor for next slow down, and so on.

This process of exactly how to slowly modify Peyronie’s treatment to increase activity of the immune response against the PD scar is where the day-today challenge is found – and it is not easy.

Peyronie’s treatment plateau of progress

It is common for a man who experiences his first plateau of progress to think only in terms

fake rolex watches

of adding more therapies to his treatment lineup to re-energize his recovery. If he has gotten good results from a medium size PD plan, he will assume he must add one or more therapies that are not part of his current plan – like PABA, or the Genesen pointers, or acetyl-L-carnitine, or Unique-E vitamin E oil as an external application or the gentle manual penis stretching technique, etc. However, this is usually not necessary and not the best course of action.

From my experience, to help you get off your plateau and begin progressing again toward additional recovery it is best to work within the same group of therapies that was good enough to create your initial improvement. This is usually accomplished by slowly and carefully increasing the dosage of one of those therapy items a little at a time. If you develop any unusual problem/symptom while increasing your dosage, simply stop taking the product for 48 hours, and restart from the next lower dose. When you reach the highest dose where you had no problem or symptom, stay at that dosage level for a few weeks. After 2-3 weeks without problems, then slowly increase the dosage until you are at the desired level. You will know you are taking the correct effective dose when you begin to see improvement in your scar size, shape, density or surface texture.

Modify slowly and deliberately

If no improvement or change occurs in the features of your scar after being on the increased dosage for about 14 days, then increase the dosage again. Repeat this process until you begin to note improvement in your scar size, shape, density or surface texture.

Only after you have attempted to increase all therapies singly, and have attempted to increase several therapies together as a group, and all have shown to be unsuccessful should you then consider expanding the number of different therapies you use – like adding in PABA, or the Genesen pointers, or acetyl-L-carnitine, or Unique-E oil as an external application or the gentle manual penis stretching technique, etc. to your Peyronie’s treatment plan.

Vitamin E as Peyronie’s Treatment

About once a month we receive an order from a new customer who purchases only vitamin E. Often these are one-time orders; these people order their vitamin E only once and we never hear from that person again. When these orders appear I always assume it is from someone who has not taken the time to learn about correct Alternative Medicine treatment, and is simply following his MD’s suggestion to “try some vitamin E.”

Using vitamin E as a single therapy with no other support therapies to develop synergy, from my experience in over 10 years of work with Peyronie’s disease, is never effective. For this reason it is the policy of PDI to always include a note with that order to explain the limitation and problem of using vitamin E by itself.

I have talked to many of these men who order only vitamin E to learn a bit more about their thinking, and how they come to believe this is all they have to do to recover from Peyronie’s disease. Usually these men tend to take their health for granted, they do not use Alternative Medicine fo

r their health problems and generally are not interested in knowing about this kind of treatment. They place their vitamin E order simply because they were told to do it.

During this conversation I will also learn that they are reluctant about taking vitamin E because they say “I recall that taking vitamin E can be dangerous.” This is usually a minor objection that can be explained easily with the information from the PDI blog post, “Peyronie’s Disease Treatment and Vitamin E.” Once the facts are presented there is no real reason to be fearful about using vitamin E in general or in a well designed treatment plan for PD.

To be really successful using an Alternative Medicine to reverse the tissue changes of Peyronie's disease requires that a man use multiple therapies to develop a synergistic effort to improve the ability of the body to heal and repair the Peyronie's scar. to learn how to do this, see Start Peyronie's Disease Treatment.

Peyronie’s Disease Vitamin E Therapy

Peyronie’s disease vitamin E treatment and other nutrients

There are many important nutrients – vitamin, mineral and amino acids – that should be used to improve and support the ability of the body to heal and repair the Peyronie’s plaque and help reverse the curved penis it causes.  However, since starting this work in 2002, I have never heard of a medical doctor prescribe any supplement other than vitamin E.  I think this says a lot about what MDs know about Peyronie’s disease vitamin therapy; their knowledge is limited, focused only to the obvious, and tends to not go beyond what everyone else is prescribing.

Vitamin E and Peyronie’s disease

The standard Peyronie’s disease vitamin E recommendation of the medical profession is to “get some vitamin E, and take no more than 400 IU a day.”  Occasionally the dosage will be doubled to 800 IU daily of vitamin E by some doctors who think outside the box a bit.  This is important to remember because vitamin E is essentially the only non-drug Peyronie’s disease vitamin E treatment that is suggested to a man with Peyronie’s disease.

Vitamin E is available in both a synthetic form and a naturally occurring organic form.  Which form you decide to use ultimately determines how much can be taken safely.  There are eight different members of the vitamin E family.  Four are known as tocopherols and the other four are tocotrienols.  The most widely found vitamin E member is gamma tocopherol, which assists the elimination of nitrogen free radicals, as well as being an effective anti-inflammatory agent.  Tocotrienols are primarily found in the skin and subdermis where they protect against UV and free radical damage. Tocopherols are found in the major organs.  A balanced diet – very difficult to achieve these days – contains all eight members of the vitamin E family.

Because of costs and chemical stability,  and because early research proposed it was the only member of the family to have biologic benefit to man, most vitamin E supplements contain only alpha tocopherol.  This means most men on Peyronie’s disease vitamin therapy as prescribed by their medical doctor will receive only one of the eight members of the vitamin E family.  Since the early days of vitamin E research (not so long ago in the 1950s) it has been proven repeatedly that the complete vitamin E family, stressing gamma tocopherol and tocotrienols in their natural and unesterified form, accelerate wound healing and minimize scar formation.   For this reason I am most insistent that men using Peyronie’s disease vitamin E treatment use a high quality vitamin E product that is heavily slanted toward gamma tocopherol and all the tocotrienols, like Yasoo Health’s Factor 400/400.

If you are concerned about vitamin E safety issues, please read Peyronie’s Disease Treatment and Vitamin E that answers all dosage and safety questions.

The body is like a house

In order to build a solid house and have it operate well, it is necessary to have a wide variety of components available during the construction phase and during the long maintenance phase when the house begins to need help in the form of repairs.

During the construction phase, many problems would develop if all the builder had to work with were roof shingles, or just windows, or just doors.  A wide variety of components are needed to make a good house – lumber of various widths, thicknesses and lengths, concrete, plywood, along with nails, dry wall, electric wire, and so many other hundreds of different things.

During the maintenance phase, many replacements and repair items are needed.  If the home owner only had nails, or furnace filters, or pale yellow paint to work with, it would not help a bit if the problem was a leaky roof, a squeaky door, or a leaky faucet.

It makes sense that a wide variety of replacement and repair parts are needed for all the parts of a house.  It also makes sense that a Peyronie’s disease vitamin therapy program has to also be broad and diverse.   How does it make sense that all the problems of Peyronie’s disease are solved with just vitamin E?

Peyronie’s disease vitamin, mineral, and amino acid treatment

Peyronie’s Disease Institute uses a variety of different nutrients to satisfy the many needs of the body to have all the needed supplies to heal and repair the scar tissue in the best way possible.

Look at the list of different products that are suggested for use in the large Peyronie’s treatment plan.  The list is long because the process is complicated.   Of course, even the large plan does not contain all the nutrients that could be recommended to heal and repair the Peyronie’s plaque; PABA, acetyl-L-carnitine, quercetin, bromelain and herbs to stimulate the process are just some of the additional therapies that can be used.

Your house is large and complicated, but it is nothing compared to the body. When the body develops Peyronie’s disease it just does not make sense to attempt to fix it with vitamin E only.  That would be like trying to fix a broken window with a screw driver.   The screw driver might be a useful to remove some glass from the window frame, but other tools – and glass – will be needed for the repair to be done correctly.

Peyronie’s Treatment Help Starts Here

Peyronie’s Treatment Right Now

Every day I talk to men who have taken control of their Peyronies disease situation and are helping their curved penis when nothing else has helped them. They do all of their Peyronie’s disease treatment with the information found only on this Alternative Medicine website and “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.” If your Peyronie’s penis is causing sexual distress, you might be interested in the in-depth and detailed discussion and loads of helpful information found in Dr. Herazy’s second book, “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex.”

If you are interested in a direct, safe and effective Peyronie’s treatment technique for penile curvature that was researched and developed by PDI, click on stretching curved penis.

What we propose at PDI is not so earth shattering or extreme in concept. We simply try to help you figure out why your Peyronie’s plaque did not heal or self-correct like the 50% of men whose Peyronie’s disease goes away on its own.  If half of the men naturally “cured” their own Peyronie’s desease, why not you? That is all we are attempting to accomplish with our therapy concept. It is really not so far out as some of the other things you find on the Internet.

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 Treatment and Russian Roulette

Peyronie's Disease Treatment is Not a Time to Gamble

Standard medical care of Peyronie's disease often is to do nothing for the first year or so. The medical thinking is this: “In half of cases the curved penis  goes away on its own. If it doesn’t go away, we can always do Peyronie's disease surgery.” For the half of the Peyronie's disease cases that do not go away, the scar and problem either stay the same or get a lot worse. If the PD results in an "acceptable" level of pain, an "acceptable" degree of penile curvature, or an "acceptable" level of sexual impairment, the outcome of the Peyronie's disease is said to be "satisfactory" and the wait-and-see strategy is said to have been successful for that individual.

Do you know who judges what is an "acceptable" outcome for YOUR penis? Well, it is not you. That determination is made for you, ahead of time, by someone else. Your doctor is only hoping that you will eventually develop a certain "acceptable" level of a penile problem. If you get only as bad as he or she hoped, then your doctor's opinion will be that everything worked out pretty well for you − even if you don't think so. Can you believe that? Did you know this is how the wait-and-see strategy is justified?

Peyronie's disease treatment can be a gamble if you do nothing for a year or two while your curved penis can worsen.  Peyronie's surgery is also a gamble.

You should find out early in your care if it is your doctor's opinion that a 5-10-20° bend in your penis is a "satisfactory" outcome, and is not worth the trouble of perhaps taking some enzymes and other supplements. You should find out if it is your doctor's opinion that not being able to have intercourse normally − as you have done previously − for the rest of your life is a "satisfactory" outcome, and is not worth the trouble of perhaps doing some exercises and using DMSO with copper and vitamin E. You should find out early if it is your doctor's opinion that a dull ache and throb (maybe even a sharp pain) in your private parts every time you happen to get an erection is a "satisfactory" outcome, and is not worth the effort of perhaps following a nutritional program of MSM, vitamins E and C, Japanese herbs and maybe some carnitine. Carefully read those medical websites that discuss Peyronie's disease treatment options. You will find how common is the opinion that so long as the penis is not terribly distorted and extremely painful, then everything is "acceptable".

If you have PD you should know that the medical profession has a very low standard by which to judge what is an "acceptable" level of pain and distortion for YOUR penis, and what is an "acceptable" level of sexual impairment in YOUR bedroom. Using these standards by which to judge the health and well-being of YOUR penis, the medical profession has determined that this wait-and-see treatment approach makes sense to them. But, does it make sense to YOU? A man with PD should know his doctor is willing to take a chance like this with YOUR penis, when there are many reasonable conservative treatment options — even if they are currently unproven. Peyronie's Disease Institute thinks this wait-and-see approach is a poor gamble and a bad strategy.

Peyronie's disease treatment with bad odds

The watch-wait-and-do-nothing strategy for Peyronie's disease treatment must sound good only to the surgeon. To PDI it sounds like playing Russian Roulette with very bad odds. In Russian Roulette there is one bullet in a six-cylinder gun; that’s a one out of six chance of losing. In the wait-and-see approach, half of the cases clear up spontaneously; that’s a one out of two chance of losing. Or to put it another way, that’s like playing Russian Roulette with three bullets in a six-cylinder gun. No thanks.

Of course, if the PD worsens so that pain and/or distortion are intolerable, or intercourse is impossible, or impotency results, then surgery can always to taken as a possible solution.

Most would agree that it is better to do all that you can for your Peyronie's disease, as soon as you can, using as many of the safe and scientifically grounded options that are known to have some limited success in helping the PD scar heal. If after following an aggressive alternative medical program, such as is presented on this website, there is less than complete repair and healing — as can happen — then surgery can still be used. Yes, you are taking a chance that the currently unproven alternative therapies PDI advocates might not work for you, but the down-side is minimal for the most part. We leave it to the reader to decide which is the greater risk: ignoring the problem, or exploring an uncharted treatment area. For further discussion, click on Heads You Win, Tails You Don’t Lose.

Let’s understand something. You do not have to use each and every one of the following products to create a Peyronie's disease treatment plan. Which therapies – and number of therapies – you finally select are entirely up to you. One therapy – any therapy – has got to be better than none; two are even better, three even more so, etc.

Perhaps the average number of therapies that are used in a treatment plan is about 9-10. As a general rule, the greater the number of therapies the greater the power of synergy working for you. Our experience is that those who try to do the least, get the least. Makes sense, don't you think? No one can predict how a person will respond to any plan, but as the old saying goes, “You usually get out of it what you put into it.”

Additional information about Peyronie's disease treatment – totally different and totally from a different direction, not presented anywhere on this website – is also available in the "Peyronie's Disease Handbook."|A good attitude seems to be directed toward an aggressive plan that can run for several months to help the body heal the Peyronie's plaque material – anything that will avoid Peyronie's disease surgery.

Honey Of an Idea for Peyronie’s Disease Natural Treatment

Honey and Peyronie's Natural Treatment

Peyronie's disease treatment must be profitable for the drug industry, even if honey could help a bent or curved penis it would still have to make money to justify Peyronie's research This is one of those “I’ve got bad news and good news” stories. Here is the bad news: Peyronie’s disease  usually is given a bleak outlook based on current medical thinking. There is no strong research that currently proves any treatment method consistently or significantly improves the course of PD. Yes, PDI agrees with the medical establishment, there is currently no proven medical cure for PD; but that says notice about Peyronie's disease natural treatment using a variety of non-drug and non-invasive ways to assist you to heal your own Peyronie's problem. Here is the good news: We think the lack of a known or accepted medical “cure” shouldn't discourage the man with Peyronie’s disease at this time, since there are so many safe and non-controversial natural and alternative therapies that have earned good — but non-conclusive — reports in research from around the world. As you know from reading reports about various therapies, there are many encouraging therapies from which to choose. There is potentially very much that can be done for PD outside of standard medical treatment, with encouraging science to back it up. Scientific research is slow and deliberate; it is often contradictory, and it is sometimes – often – driven by the profit motive. Some Peyronie’s disease research shows favorable and positive results with vitamin E, or MSM, or Neprinol, or carnitine, or Nattokinase, etc., while other research of these same substances indicates just as unfavorable and negative results as the others are positive. Some research shows that only such a small percentage of men with PD are helped by conservative management that the results are not scientifically significant, or the results are inconclusive, or they are contradicted by other equally valid research. In other words, Peyronie’s disease research is often contradictory, vague and undependable. Many treatment methods are never studied because there is not enough potential profit to justify the high cost of such research. Just as a wild example, what if honey was actually an effective treatment for PD? Yep, all you had to do was eat some honey or smear it on you, and a short while later your PD would be gone. What would be the motive for a large drug company to do the necessary and vital research proving that honey was a good treatment of Peyronie's disease?   None.   If honey was a proven cure for PD only some beekeepers – and you – would benefit. Without profit, research usually doesn’t happen.

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

Profit and Peyronie’s disease treatment

If honey was the cure for Peyronie's disease, the research would never get done, and scientists would be correct to say there is “no research available to prove its      effectiveness.” Of course that lack of proof would be by their design. That is the dilemma of alternative medicine, and it is the basis for the indifference and lack of enthusiasm for Peyronie's disease treatment. PDI thinks there have been enough favorable findings for many therapies – fully acknowledging research and studies that contradict and refute them – that a person should investigate these inexpensive and naturally occurring therapies to learn their therapeutic benefit firsthand. Please note that for all of the therapies (vitamin E, DMSO, carnitine, Neprinol, copper, etc.) that are sometimes given negative results, there are other favorable and positive studies of these same therapies that contradict the negative studies. The therapies that PDI suggests are scientifically grounded, safe, economical and adequately proven to a degree necessary to justify their cautious and limited use in treating PD.

So don’t be too bothered by a current lack of proof for theses Peyronie's treatments. Peyronie’s Disease Institute thinks it has  “A Honey of an Idea “ for you.

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 treatment, vitamin E, PABA and U.S. government

Vitamin E and PABA Used for Peyronie's Treatment

Here is interesting vitamin E, PABA and Peyronie’s treatment information from the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse, an important arm of the prestigious National Institute of Health.

This information about  Peyronie’s treatment and vitamin E is not exactly new, because frankly, there is not much that is  new in the search for a Peyronies cure.  Even so, what makes this section worth reading is that it is interesting and immensely informative in a different way.  What is important to know about Peyronies treatment from a medical standpoint is not what is revealed, but what is not  mentioned about Peyronie’s treatment – in this case concerning the use of vitamin E.

This following paragraph is copied under the NIH’s discussion of “Experimental Peyronie’s Treatments”:

“Some researchers have given vitamin E orally to men with Peyronie’s disease in small-scale studies and have reported improvements. Yet, no controlled studies have established the effectiveness of vitamin E therapy. Similar inconclusive success has been attributed to oral application of para-aminobenzoate [PABA], a substance belonging to the family of B-complex molecules.”

It is important to know that this is as far as the discussion concerning the use of vitamin E and PABA goes in this government article.  It reports that “small-scale studies…have reported improvements. Yet, no controlled studies have established the effectiveness of vitamin E therapy.”   So, if there was some improvement noted when vitamin E and PABA were used in Peyronie’s treatment, exactly why have there been no additional controlled studies conducted to prove or disprove that these early initial positive reports were factual?  If it looked like these two experimental, but natural, non-drug Peyronie’s treatments were helpful, how can it be that no further testing has been done in this direction?

Isn’t the drug industry, or the AMA, or the government, or some private research group out there supposed to be interested in finding a Peyronie’s cure?   If some natural Peyronie's therapy like PABA or vitamin E showed some initial promise, why has no one looked into it further?   If something comes along that is naturally occurring, easy and inexpensive to produce, safe to take compared to drugs, and readily available in the marketplace, and happens to look like it could help men with Peyronie’s disease, why has it not been investigated further?  Why, indeed!

Vitamin E as a Peyronie’s treatment, or not

The answer to this natural question is found in the second sentence, in which it is mentioned, “no controlled studies have established the effectiveness of vitamin E therapy.”  This means that without these additional higher-level controlled studies, the effectiveness of vitamin E and PABA remain conveniently unproven. Therefore, vitamin E and PABA remain only at the experimental forever.  Exactly where the drug industry wants them to remain.  So long as they continue to ignore vitamin E – to not give it a legitimate opportunity to prove or disprove it's value to assist in Peyronie's treatment – the medical community and the drug industry can correctly say it is “unproven.”   This keeps vitamin E, and PABA, and other Alternative Medicine therapies out in the cold, where they would like them to remain.

It appears that the drug industry does not want to know if Peyronie’s disease can be treated with vitamin E.  If it were known that vitamin E, or PABA, or the PDI treatment concept of synergistic use of multiple Alternative Medicine therapies, are actually effective Peyronie’s treatments, then the entire argument against their use would crumble.  No one has stepped forward to conduct controlled studies because of fear that vitamin E, or PABA, might actually help the body heal the Peyronies plaque.

So long as the necessary tests are withheld, it is perfectly honest and legitimate to say that these natural therapies are “not proven” by controlled research.  This is a great discussion stopper, isn’t it?  Yet, no one goes the next step to ask, “And, exactly why have these necessary controlled studies not been performed in view of the small-scale studies that indicated these simple measures were effective?  Why the delay?  Why the lack of interest?”

Well, I guess we all know, and it should not surprise anyone, that the answer is the importance of profit over humanitarian interests.  It is unfortunate but apparently true, since I have found no reasonable answer to explain why this testing has not been conducted.   You can assure that if small-scale testing of a new drug showed the same improvement, that vast sums of additional funding would be forthcoming for controlled studies.  In this way, once that new drug could be proved or disproved, its march to the marketplace and profitability would be hastened.

Lastly, if you think the use of vitamin E or PABA might not be a reasonable kind of therapy to use because they are “unproven,” now you understand that this state of being unproven is a convenient strategy of those who help themselves more than they want to help you.

Perhaps this will help you to understand, and feel differently about, the use of vitamin E, PABA, and the rest of the Peyronie's Disease Institute program to treat this male scourge.   For more information about the use of vitamin E in the treatment of Peyronie's disease, go to Vitamin E, and to learn about the use of PABA in the treatment of Peyronie's disease, go to PABA.

This is why it is necessary for each man to look out for himself and become the master of his own Peyronie’s treatment, since there is no one as interested in your welfare as you – and the Peyronie’s Disease Institute.

When to Take Supplements in a Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Plan

Timing of Peyronie's disease treatment important

Some men at the start of care get confused about taking their Peyronie’s disease treatment supplements.  If it is true that timing is everything, as they say, it is critical to the success of your Peyronie’s disease program.  If you do not take your supplements at the right time, you are not going to get the kind of results that you should.

Double check to make sure you take each one of your Peyronies therapies at the right time.  I just had a fellow the other day – after three months of treatment – finally figure out that he got confused on the first day, and was taking his Neprinol WITH meals.  What a mistake!  He wasted precious time, opportunity and money. Do not make that kind of error.

Take these with meals (immediately before eating or during a meal):

1. Vitamin E 400/400

2. Maxi-Gamma E

3. Omega Q

4. Natural C 1000

5. Fundamental Sulfur with C (MSM) – if you are having digestive complaints when taking it    between meals on an empty stomach, otherwise take between meals

6. PABA

7. Acetyl-L-Carnitine

8. Prosta-Support

9. NanoGreens – our new green drink

Take these between meals (1 hour or more before eating or 2 hours after eating):

1. Neprinol

2. Fibrozym

3. Nattokinase

4. MSM (Fundamental Sulfur) – only if it bothers your digestive tract when taken on an empty stomach

5. Quercetin/Bromelain

7. Scar-X – be careful you do not even chew gum or eat candy during this time; your mouth must not even have the taste of food in it when you take homeopathy

At the beginning of the day, separate all the supplements you will need for that day.  It is more work to handle the bottles twice a day.  If you are going to eat every meal away from home, put what you need in each for each meal in one of the small plastic cases for easy and clean transport.

Put an “X” on the bottle top of all products you take between meals.  Finding them will be easier when you are putting your supplements in the case.

We encourage you to talk to your personal physician about any digestive problem or concern you may have.  It is critical that you keep your family doctor informed about your progress and your current condition, especially when there is a problem.

If you have ideas about other topics you would like to have addressed, or questions about Peyronie’s disease treatment or plaque, please let me know.  TRH

Peyronie’s Disease Treatment and Heat

Hot packs are a good Peyronie's treatment

Even though you follow a good Peyronie’s disease treatment program based  current scientific knowledge of biochemistry and physiology, many men overlook a very effective therapy that is essentially free.

Heat – moist heat – can be incorporated in every Alternative Medicine Peyronies plan, especially those that use external therapies.  I am currently coaching a few MDs about treatment of their Peyronie’s disease plaque and fibrin that it contains; I can see a few of them roll their eyes when they read this.  Imagine, using moist heat for Peyronie’s disease – isn’t that cute.  Many people would probably not even consider using because it seems too low-tech, too simple, too basic, too dumb, to be of any  value.  Yet, I used it and so do a lot of the men I work with about their treatment plans.  Moist heat should be an important part of your Peyronie’s disease treatment plan.

Applying moist heat before and after using the combination of DMSO, topical vitamin E, and the copper peptide serum makes a lot of sense.  The heat dilates the blood vessels of the area and causes greater absorption of these three therapies into the tissue of the Peyronies plaque. Use moist heat on you penis if you are going to be doing any kind of external therapy.  For that matter, even if all you are doing are internal therapies of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, moist heat is still a good inexpensive therapy to do every day, all by itself.

Moist heat applied before other therapies (DMSO, copper peptides, vitamin E oil) will give them an extra advantage.  If you precede most any external therapy (or sexual activity) with moist heat you will bring extra blood to the genital area.  The additional blood flow and increased lymphatic drainage that occurs will allow other therapies to penetrate deeper and expand the tissue more fully.   In addition, you can also apply more moist heat after any or all of your therapies.  Moist heat will assure a better therapeutic response.

An element of potential danger is present when you apply heat to the delicate tissue of the genital area.  You must be very careful the heat is not too great and that you do not fall asleep with the heat being applied.  If you have a fair complexion, or have a history of burning easily, take extra steps to protect yourself from injury.  It is important that you check your skin frequently to assure you are not burning yourself.  If you use common sense and care with the process, there should be little problem.

Here is an excerpt from my book, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook”:

"A hot shower is generally not effective because the heat is applied in such a broad area that much additional blood cannot be sent over the entire body surface.  You will not experience the degree of increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage as when the heat is focused to a smaller and more specific area.

To do this properly, prepare three towels:

The first is used to cover the surface you will be sitting or laying on.

The second should be a large clean towel.  Soak it water as hot as you can stand to handle.  Wring the towel out as completely as you can, so that it is not dripping excess water.  Lie down in a comfortable position on top of the dry towel.  Apply the large hot moist towel to the genital area for 5-15 minutes, with special attention to covering and wrapping specifically around the penis, being careful not to burn yourself.

The third is a towel to cover and insulate the moist towel to keep it as hot as you can stand, for as long as possible.

The first time you do this, PLEASE check yourself after the first few minutes and check yourself again five minutes after the first check, to assure that you are not burning your tender genital tissue.  If it should happen, because that is the nature of accidents, use:

1.      Ice pack to the area for 20 minutes only, no more. After 20 minutes the response of the body to the ice changes, and the tissue begins to swell and favor retention of inflammatory by-products.   Do this twice the first day and then daily until you are no longer in pain.

2.      Neosporin topical ointment applied to the area of injury according to package instructions.  Keep the area clean and covered with sterile gauze.

3.      Aloe vera gel applied to the area will speed healing.

4.      Determine what you did wrong with the heat; don’t do it again, because you will be using moist heat again in a slightly different manner, as it is still a good thing to do.  Adjust and modify your technique so you will not burn yourself again.

At the conclusion of the moist heat application you should be nicely red – only.  You should not feel like you are sore to the touch after using the hot towel.  If possible, keep the hot moist towel in place while doing other therapy; apply moist heat while doing DMSO, copper peptide, and vitamin E Peyronie's treatment, or soft tissue massage to the lower pelvis.

"As a very nice option, you can also simply use a hot water bottle wrapped with a moist towel to the genital when you go to bed, or simply put it in place if you are going to be sitting for a long time in front of the TV, your computer or even your car.  Or, you can even put a half or full cup of rice in an old sock, tie off the open end, and heat it in the microwave for a few minutes.  This is an easy and inexpensive way to make a handy reusable heating method for your problem area.  Every little bit helps."

Do not underestimate the value of moist heat applied to the penis to speed up healing – it might seem old-fashioned, but it works wonders.  Do it!
