Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Philosophy

“What is the most important product or vitamin I should use to treat my Peyronies disease?” I get that question all the time.

The correct answer is that there is no ONE important therapy; they are ALL important, especially when used together. Each alone has limited ability to make a difference with the fibrous Peyronie’s disease plaque But when used together as we advocate at PDI, their combined effort is capable of generating a healing response. None will work alone to get results that are equal to a wide-based synergistic approach to therapy.

There is no way to predict which vitamin or mineral or enzyme therapy will do the most for you. Actually, there is no one product that can destroy the scar by itself or build you up sufficiently so you can do the job yourself. I think they are all necessary. The more you can do for yourself the better the results will be against Peyronie’s disease.

Please read and re-read sections of the PDI website that describe the Peyronie's treatment philosophy and principles of synergy. If you are having any doubts or indecisions about what you are doing, you owe it to yourself to go over some of these points. You should educate yourself well about this terrible problem and come to fully understand why you are following this course of Alternative Medicine care.

There is a lot of good information for you on the PDI website. If you haven’t spent a few minutes there lately, now might be a good time to just go over what started you thinking in this direction in the first place. After you understand more about the philosophy that guides this process of eliminating the Peyronies plaque, it will be easier to follow your program well.


Largest Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Mistake

Do Peyronie's treatment correctly for best results

What’s the biggest fundamental mistake I see men make while trying to treat their Peyronie’s disease?  This is a good question, because if you are making this mistake it could be sabotaging the success of your Peyronie’s disease treatment right now.

Their mistake is that they will only undergo an Alternative Medicine treatment of Peyronies if it is guaranteed.   They never stop to think or realize that no doctor in his right mind will guarantee any form of treatment, especially Peyronie’s disease.

Most men say they want to recover from their Peyronie’s disease.  They say they will do anything to get their lives back in order again.  I hear it all the time.  Yet, when I suggest things to do, such as additional ideas or strategies to follow that often make a difference, I get a different reply from these same men.

When we communicate, I often hear and see a lot of indecision and lack of commitment to getting well.  What I really see in my dealing with a wide variety of men is that they want to get over their Peyronie’s disease, but only if the therapy is:
1.  Easy
2.  Fast
3.  Guaranteed
4.  Inexpensive
5.  Convenient

Of this above list of five reservations, the one that always interests me the most is #3, wanting to know if the Peyronie’s disease treatment ideas of PDI are “guaranteed.”

When I hear this question, I ask myself, “What in all of medicine can be realistically and honestly guaranteed?” and the answer is absolutely nothing.

I had some dental work the other day to remove a badly cracked tooth.  I asked the dentist if he could guarantee if he could get the entire tooth and roots out of the socket.  He said, “No, I can’t.  If that root breaks off, you will have to go to the dental surgeon to have the jaw bone opened to remove that nasty little root.”  Because he could guarantee the exact effectiveness of the Novocain shots he put into my jaw, he had to continually ask me how much numbness was created and how much pain I was having.  He asked, because he did not know, because even something as simple and direct as a Novocain shot represents an unknown outcome.  You see, a dentist cannot guarantee the effectiveness of a simple Novocain injection.

I doubt you can find an MD alive who would guarantee that the high blood pressure prescription – or even an aspirin – he gives you will work.  Since this is a Peyronie’s disease forum, I doubt you can find a surgeon alive who would guarantee before surgery that your curvature would be straightened, or that your Peyronie’s disease would not return in a few years.   No doctor guarantees any outcome of treatment for a specific tissue response because the body does not operate that way.

Yet, because of all these goofy advertisements that surround Peyronie’s disease, you and I are all bombarded with “guarantees” of how effective a secret herb from India is to “cure” the Peyronie’s plaque.  Especially bad are all the mechanical penis stretchers that “guarantee” to reverse a bent penis.  These mechanical penis stretcher companies are a great lot.  They come and they go.  They offer a simple solution, but from my observation and reports I get every day, most men simply cannot use these stretchers for more than a day or two before giving up because of the pain they cause.

One of the surest signs of a phony setup in Peyronie’s disease treatment is when you see a guarantee of results offered.

Sorry to say, nothing about ANY Peyronie’s disease treatment from any source is easy, fast, guaranteed, inexpensive or convenient.  It is tough work.  Peyronie’s disease is one tough problem, and it is most stubborn to treat.  That is why there is no formal Peyronie’s cure at this time. The trick in treating Peyronie’s disease successfully is that it requires you to personally be more stubborn and tenacious than your problem.  It takes a made-up mind, with a high level of commitment to be successful over Peyronie’s disease.  If you truly have one of those determined minds and you are prepared to do some serious work to help yourself, you are far closer to success with your Peyronie’s disease treatment plan.

A halfhearted effort will get you nothing – I can guarantee you that!   You must approach your treatment plan knowing it will not be easy, and any good progress will take time and dedication.  Dig in for the long road, and you will avoid discouraging yourself.  On the other hand, you must also be realistic in your expectations concerning how long it will take to see results and your anticipated degree of eventual improvement.

You need to remember you are working to make yourself healthier and stronger so you can correct your own Peyronie’s disease problem, you are not looking in vain for a Peyronie’s cure.  It’s as simple as that.

If you are truly serious about correcting your Peyronie’s disease, you must be ready to work hard to strengthen your immune response.  Give your body the time and opportunity it needs to heal like the 50% group whose Peyronie’s disease corrects on its own.  To help you put your plan together, I would be pleased to answer your questions about Peyronies treatment.  Please write your question to me under the PD Blog heading, “Ask Dr. Herazy."

Peyronie’s disease plaque and fibrin

Tissue changes of Peyronie’s disease are unique

In a November 2005 abstract account, Kenneth D. Somers and Dawn M. Dawson, of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, Virginia, and Department of Pathology, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, reported on their findings concerning the tissue changes that occur in the Peyronie’s disease scar or plaque.

To begin this explanation, they remind us Peyronie’s disease is actually a pathological fibrosis, or a situation in which there is excess fibrin tissue located in a small area to the degree that it becomes a problem for the body.  In the case of Peyronie’s disease, this fibrosis also is associated with an excessive deposit of collagen in the same area of the fibrin plaque or scar that results in a curved penis.

Although the cause of Peyronie’s disease remains unknown, they tell us, injury or trauma has long been thought to be the inciting event. To determine if this is true, they looked at the cellular structure of the Peyronie’s disease plaque or scar to get an insight into the cause of this condition.

Materials and methods they used


Small samples of plaque tissue was taken from 33 patients with Peyronie’s disease, and control tissue and nodular tissue was taken from the penis of eight patients with Dupuytren’s contracture; both groups of tissue were analyzed for collagen staining, as well as fibrin and elastic fiber structure and distribution.

Their results


As a result of this study they found abnormally stained collagen in 97% of the samples, disrupted elastic fibers in 94% and excess fibrin deposition in 95% of the samples.  These same findings were not found in the normal scared tunica albuginea of control patients who did not have Peyronie’s disease. The presence of abnormal fibrin accumulation in Peyronies plaque tissue was detected in a special chemical analysis, while this abnormal fibrin was not found in skin tissue samples from the same patients.

Their conclusions


Their conclusions from this study is that the fibrin deposits in Peyronies plaque tissue is consistent with the theory that repeated minor injury or single major injury to the tunica albuginea results in fibrin being deposited in the tissue spaces at the site of trauma to start this condition.

Peyronie’s treatment concept

Peyronie’s Disease Institute has taken the position that it is this excess fibrin deposit within the excess collagen formation that can be safely and easily removed by the use of a battery of systemic enzymes that are specific for foreign fibrin protein in the body.  When combined with other known methods to increase the healing response of the immune system against Peyronie’s disease plaque, it is possible to reverse the abnormal tissue found in the tunica albuginea and therefore eliminate the cause of pain and penile curvature associated with Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie’s Disease and Meaningful Romance

Sex and Peyronie's disease

Now that we are just slightly more than a week away from Valentine’s Day here in the U.S., even though you might not feel prepared or in the mood because of your Peyronie’s disease, romance and  love are always a topic of great interest.  Just because your equipment is having a problem developing your usual high quality erection should not mean that you do not use common sense, kindness and skillful crafting of your relationship with her.  Perhaps you have realized that just because your equipment is "down" is all the more reason to use your brain and your heart. With a little effort, the stressful emotions associated with Peyronie's disease do not have to prevail.

In a romantic relationship, it is the little things that count, by far. A small but thoughtful gift, an off-hand compliment, or a moment of sensitive physical contact can vastly strengthen a relationship.

Here are the Peyronie's Disease Institute 10 steps to keeping both partners in a romantic relationship content, satisfied, and happy.

1. Show frequent, unexpected and meaningful acts of affection

Small acts of physical intimacy give your partner a warm feeling and convey the love and affection you feel. The littlest touch can be as important, and perhaps even more important, than the longest night of intense sexual intimacy.

2. Tell your partner you love her

Actions sometimes speak louder than words.  However, words often speak more clearly and precisely than actions. Take a quiet moment every now and then to verbalize your feelings for your partner.

3. Show appreciation for your partner

Let your partner know on a regular basis what it is that you appreciate and like most about her — what you admire, what makes you proud, what strength and quality you appreciate most.  Tell her you appreciate that she is patient and tolerant of you during your time of physical limitation.  Go out of your way to pay her back in loving and kind ways, in return.

4. Be there during large and small times of need

It’s obvious what you should do if your partner faces a major setback in life like the loss of a job or the death of a loved one. But it’s just as important to be supportive during life’s little challenges, too, like an argument at work, feeling bad at the beginning of the flu, or not winning a contest.

5. Share yourself

Speak up, especially about your PD.  Don’t keep your thoughts and feelings, likes and dislikes, dreams and fears, achievements and mistakes, or anything else about you to yourself. If there is something that is important to you, share it with your partner.

6. Give gifts

Take an opportunity to give small material tokens of love and appreciation. A small bottle of a new perfume, a new book by her favorite author, a special dessert, a piece of jewelry or clothing that reminds you of her — anything small or large that tells her she is on your mind.

7. Be graceful and patient with her demands and shortcomings

She might not say so, but a lot of times she knows she is wrong in an argument of testy situation, and she will appreciate that you are kind and patient with her. Recognize, appreciate and learn to love her quirks for what they are: an essential part of the person you fell in love with; the spice she brings to your life.

8. Make "alone time" a top priority

No matter how busy and disjointed both of your lives might be, commit at least an evening every week or two to be alone together.

9. Take nothing for granted

Cultivate a daily sense of gratitude – and tell her your appreciation – for her and the countless small blessings she has brought into your life.

10. Strive for equality

Follow the Golden Rule in your relationship: do unto your partner as you would have her do unto you. Strive for a fair division of household duties and responsibilities.  Do not expect or demand special consideration you are unwilling to offer in return.

Just because you have Peyronie’s disease does not mean that your relationship must come to a rocky end.  If you take care of your mate in small ways that count, you can keep the home fires burning warm and brightly.

Peyronie's treatment and

Finding a Peyronie's cure

Peyronie’s Disease Institute (PDI) approaches the problem of Peyronies treatment from an entirely different direction than traditional medical therapy.

While current traditional thinking is that there is no known medical Peyronie's cure, they readily admit that the body does heal and repair PD in about 50% of the cases within the first 12-18 months after onset.  Their position seems to be that while the body can cure this problem – that particular kind of healing does not count.  Their self-serving thinking is that so long as a drug or medical procedure is not available for an MD to administer, then “there is no cure.”  The current standard of medical care continues to be wrapped up in drug and surgical treatment for PD, completely ignoring the fact that half of the men can cure their own problem.  The PDI position is that the use of multiple therapies when used in combination will often develop a healing synergy to correct the loathed Peyronie’s plaque.

Many years ago when I developed my own PD problem at the age of 56, I was confronted with the pressing need to do something to assist and stimulate my own immune response to my body could heal this unwelcome development.  With my background in Alternative Medicine I knew there were always options to assist the healing ability of the body.  I studied and reviewed various medical research articles about the subject of Peyronie’s disease and with the three MDs I was working with at that time, we developed the basic Alternative Medicine treatment protocol that is now found on our website for all to share.

Over the years I have continued the study of Peyronie’s disease, resulting in several significant improvements in the basic treatment strategy that is now used by many hundreds of men around the world.  Recently, this ongoing study has brought me to a most interesting and helpful Alternative Medicine website, For those men who spend hours looking up various health and healing topics I encourage you to visit this website to broaden your investigation for a better way to seek health and healing.

The website is a hub of natural healing information that brings together various Alternative Medicine disciplines like acupuncture, Ayurvedic medicine, naturopathy, homeopathy, herbology, detoxification, meditation, yoga practices, hypnosis, etc.  The emphasis is to educate website readers how they can use this information to increase their body’s ability to recover from chronic disease and reduced vitality.  In addition, this is well-researched information since many of the authors and contributors are MDs who take a conservative and natural approach wellness.  You will find additional information at about many of the various therapies that are used in Peyronie’s disease treatment.

While they do not have a lot of specific information yet about Peyronie's disease treatment, you can review and research a wealth of information about individual therapies you see featured on the PDI website.

I encourage all of my blog readers to spend some time getting educated and enlightened at the visit soon.
