Early Peyronie's treatment experimentation
In the early phase of experimenting with my own Peyronie’s disease treatment in 2002, I saw only slight improvement. With so little helpful information available at that time, I was forced to constantly experiment on myself based on my reading and research. My double-curve was only slightly better after a few months of using a wide variety and a great amount of different natural therapies. I was discouraged because I was not sure i would be able to figure out how to get the Peyronie’s help I needed.
About this time two important things happened that would change everything for me.
The first was that I began to notice that while my curvature did not change at all in the early part of care I noticed that my Peyronie’s plaque or scars were not only changing, but changing often and in different ways. The penile curvature did not change but the scars were very active. I began to notice that the size, shape, density and surface features of each scar would change – sometimes a lot – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse – every few days. This was a fascinating and frustrating observation that I had never read or heard about while doing a great amount of investigation into Peyronie’s disease. I thought I was the only one whose scars changed so much, because in all my reading I had never read about rapid and significant scar changes.
This was the unique discovery about PD in 2002 that I was the first to make: Not only do the size, shape, density and surface features of the Peyronie’s scar change, but they change on a frequent – sometimes almost continuous – basis. Realizing that the scars were changing made me think differently about Peyronie’s disease; as a result I had to re-evaluate my early Peyronie’s disease treatment ideas.
The second thing that happened was my wife made a brilliant observation about my scars in relation to what I was eating. I would discuss my scar changes with my wife because I was fascinated that so much change could take place often in just a few days. One day, after making yet another report to her about my scars getting worse again (after showing improvement for several days), she casually told me, “You know, it seems that whenever you eat ice cream your scars get worse. You said your scars were softer and more difficult to find a few days ago. You had a big bowl of ice cream last night, and now your scars are hard again and easier to find. I noticed the last few times you ate ice cream that two or three days later you complained about your scars getting bad again. Maybe you should stop eating ice cream for a while and see what happens to your scars.”
Well, like any husband, at first I thought she was wrong. But when I began to experiment with her ice cream theory, I saw to my amazement that she was correct.
This led to a series of other direct observations that changes in the size, shape and density of the PD scar are often in relation to what I was eating. It also led to my second important discovery: By observing for changes in the size, shape, density and surface quality of the PD scar, it can be “used” to act like a guide to determine what is good and bad for that person’s Peyronie’s disease.
Help Peyronie’s treatment: compare to scar
If you want to help Peyronie’s treatment be more effective you must learn to measure your treatment efforts against changes in your PD scar. All treatment must be evaluated to learn if your scar responds favorably to it. In order to do this you must know how to determine and record the size, shape, density and surface feature of each scar. This very important topic is discussed in detail in “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” – in addition to other important topics.
Don’t guess with your Peyronie’s treatment. Know what makes your scar get better or worse. Use that critical information to guide you to your best level of recovery of which you are capable.
