Hello Dr. Herazy,
Thank you for the great site.
I am getting ready to place my first order with you and have a couple of questions:
1) In your opinion what if any is the benefit of taking Neprinol over taking Nattokinase & Fibrozym. I understand your philosophy of overwhelming the problem but it seems like taking all 3 is overkill and from my limited understanding taking Nattokinase & Fibrozym sounds better than Neprinol?
2) You do not mention the 15% Verapamil topical solution from PDLabs which seems to have had quite a few scientific studies done on it and the results seem to be very positive. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks–I look forward to placing my order and getting started on a treatment plan.
1) The benefit of taking the single product, Neprinol, rather than the two products, Nattokinase and Fibrozym, is that the Neprinol is more concentrated and should result in taking fewer systemic enzyme pills per day while having a higher dosage intake. In addition, Neprinol contains the additional enzymes of papain and bromelain. The cost is higher for Neprinol, but considering the higher level of enzyme in the product, it is less expensive in the long term. Yes, taking three different forms of a systemic enzyme might be more than is necessary, but for some men it does make a difference. There is no way to anticipate how anyone will respond to their therapy plan, so I encourage everyone to experiment with different combinations of therapy products to determine how their scars will respond as you go through different combinations of products.
2) Most every medical treatment for PD is the same – one or two positive studies and a larger list of negative studies about it. The same with topical verapamil from PDLabs of Texas. The different studies mentioned by PDLabs of Texas are intriguing, but are contradicted by other similar studies of topical verapamil. When i first developed PD in late 2001 or early 2002 and found the PDLabs website on the internet and read those studies I also was impressed with their conclusions. for this reason I used their topical verapamil product for about six months, during which time my PD worsened considerably and I developed overwhelming side-effects that caused me to stop using the product. At that time I realized I would have to look outside traditional medical treatment for helping my PD and I began to intensely investigate Alternative Medicine options; eventually I came upon the concept and and treatment protocol that developed into the Peyronie's Disease Institute. Over the years I have discovered more controversy about their findings – but this is typical of any kind of treatment for PD. It seems PD is always tangled in controversy and exceptions. TRH
