Peyronie’s research using Alternative Medicine
The type of Peyronie’s disease research conducted by the Peyronie’s Disease Institute (PDI) is not like the Peyronie’s research performed by the government, universities or large multibillion dollar drug companies.
To begin with, the Peyronie’s disease research of PDI is conducted exclusively in areas of therapeutic interest that do not have great profitability. The Peyronie’s Disease Institute works in the area of Alternative Medicine, meaning the use of vitamins, herbs, minerals, enzymes and non-invasive procedures that are intended increase the ability of the body to heal and repair the Peyronie’s disease plaque material. The goal of our Peyronie’s disease research is not to cure the body from the outside-in as a drug or surgery attempts –- so far unsuccessfully –- to do. Our goal and our research efforts are intended to work from the inside-out as a way to increase the body’s ability to self-correct the basic injury of Peyronie’s disease.
The body heals and self-corrects itself of a wide variety of conditions. Broken bones heal. Some cancer will heal without outside help. many kinds of infections and disease processes come and go in a natural process of self-repair if the body is given adequate time and support to allow the normal immune response to occur as it should. What is the old saying? “God heals the body, and the surgeon takes the fee.”
Peyronie’s research projects at Peyronie’s Disease Institute
Peyronie’s disease research activity at the Peyronie’s Disease Institute for the last eight years has involved a few select projects of special interest:
1. Ongoing voluntary and anonymous Peyronie's survey research using online multiple questionnaire, consists of 48 questions, with scores tabulated and recorded for individual assessment and trend development.
As a result of the trend score tabulated, work was done to develop a specialized diet to assist balance of the blood pH more toward the alkaline side of normal. This information is available in the book, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook”
2. Private individual Peyronie’s disease research with 10 volunteers to develop a gentle manual penis stretching technique that would reduce penile distortion commonly associated with Peyronie’s disease.
As a result of this 12 month Peyronie’s research effort the PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method© was developed as a totally new and effective way to change the penile distortion associated with Peyronie’s disease.
Additional Peyronie’s research projects are being considered for investigation into self-treatment with non-invasive self-administered acupuncture point stimulation, massage, and vitamin E therapy.
