Well, we finally did it!
After several months of changes and tweaking, we finally have the new PDI website on-line. For a while we had a few small problems with our international customers not being able to order certain products. But, all of that has been repaired and all orders are being received and sent without a problem now.
If you have not been to our new site recently, just click on the following link – New PDI website
You will note there is no longer a Natural Complementary Medicine website attached to the PDI website. You can now order directly from the PDI website.
If you have been using a bookmarked link or a shortcut on your desktop to reach the PDI site, you may need to remove them and make a new bookmark or shortcut.
Now for our newsletter. . .
Every now and then I will get a frantic email from someone who demands to know why he has not noticed any changes in his PD.
The first question, and perhaps the most important one, I ask is this: What is the size, shape, density and surface texture of your scar? The usual response I get back is first silence, and then he will admit he does not know. I then will go on to explain that if you do not know what you have now, and you did not know what you had when you started, how can you know for a fact that you have or have not make progress? Basically, the fellow is comparing nothing to nothing, and concluding that nothing has changed.
It would be like going on a diet to lose weight, but not getting your beginning weight or beginning measurements to know your condition at the start of the diet. You need to know what is going on at the start, so that you know if your diet is effective. If after a week or two of following a diet you know for a fact that you are not losing weight, then you have to change your diet or exercise more. It all starts with knowing what is going on.
Further, I also get emails and calls from men who complain that they have not made enough progress to justify continuing with their treatment plan. My line of questioning goes like this:
- What products and therapies are you using?
- What is your dosage for each?
- Honestly, how faithful are you to your plan; how often do you forget to do what you are supposed to do?
- What has changed; what condition were you in before treatment and what condition are you in now?
As you can imagine I learn that they have not been following the PDI plan, but picking and choosing to do a few things that suit their fancy. They most often use no more than 1-3 different therapies. Compliance on a day to day basis for taking their products is “not great”. I learn they have not got the book I wrote but were trying to do it all inexpensively through the information only on the website. Along the way I learn they have been eating all the wrong foods for PD based on what is the suggested diet in “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” and their MD has done yet another cystoscopic examination up the urethra in the last few months. They are their own worst enemy.
Please take your problem seriously, and take your treatment even more seriously. The more you do, the better your results should be.
Stay focused to your plan, and do not become discouraged.
