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
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
