Viagra Peyronie’s Disease Connection

Greater Viagra use and increase of Peyronie’s disease

 

In a 2002 article in the International Journal of Impotence Research about possible causes of Peyronie’s disease, authored by Sikka and Hellstrom of Tulane University, these two medical researchers observed that with the increased use of Viagra, Peyronie’s disease also increased.

In my work with the Peyronie’s Disease Institute, while corresponding with six to 10 men daily who have Peyronie’s disease concerning various aspects of their problem, I have also made this observation – that with greater use of Viagra, Peyronie’s diseases clearly increases.  The difference between Drs. Sikka and Hellstrom’s and my explanation why Peyronie’s disease is becoming more common as the use of Viagra – and other PDE5 drugs like Cialis and Levitra – increases around the world.

Their explanation, quoting Drs. Sikka and Hellstrom’s report:

“Peyronie's disease usually affects 13% of males between the ages of 40 and 70, and the number of patients with such lesions have increased since the advent of oral sildenafil (Viagra, Pfizer) either because more men are becoming manifest and/or not hesitant anymore to come to clinics for such evaluations.”

In other words, these two Tulane researchers say the only reason PD appears to be increasing is that more men are willing to talk about it, now that men are talking more about erectile dysfunction with the greater awareness brought about with the frequent TV and magazine ads about this problem and drug solution of it.

While they offer the simple explanation that because men are becoming less hesitant to talk about their sexual problems, they assume more men are inclined to enter medical clinics asking for help – like asking for a prescription for Viagra, Cialis and Levitra.  That is certainly a possible explanation of perhaps some merit.   But that does not match my experience in talking with men who actually  have Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie's and Viagra

Men I talk to about starting Peyronie’s treatment still ask about how the mailing package will be labeled and if the return address will mention “Peyronie’s disease,” lest their letter carrier will learn they have PD.   I am asked if the credit card statement will mention that their therapy products are for treatment of PD, lest someone at the credit card company will learn they have PD.   I am asked by men how to explain the problem of Peyronie’s disease to a new girl friend so that she will not be scared away from a relationship with someone who has a disease of the penis.  I talk with men who do not want to talk at work about their PD lest someone overhears the conversation.  I learn from men that the worse thing about PD is not the pain associated with the scar development, but the loss of penile girth and length – something that most men would seem hesitant to tell the world about.

I do not doubt for an instant that men are more relaxed and casual about admitting to a problem with erectile dysfunction, and more willing to ask for a Viagra prescription than they were a few years ago.  This is a more sexually open society – for good or for bad.  Yet, I doubt that men are just as willing to admit that they have Peyronie’s disease in which their penis is shockingly smaller than average or that can be so distorted as to be incapable of entry to engage sexual intercourse.

Erectile dysfunction is one problem related to advancing age that perhaps has some dignity related to it and hope of easy drug solution, but Peyronie’s disease might not be seen in the same way since it is associated with permanent deformity and reduction of the size of the male organ.

My opinion is that Drs. Sikka and Hellstrom are reluctant to discuss the possibility that these PDE5 drugs sporadically, irregularly and without warning cause severe injury to the tunica albuginea by extensive over-inflation of the corpora cavernosa of the penis.  The mechanism of this possible route of injury was discussed on 8-17-09 in the Peyronie’s Disease blog under the title, Peyronie’s Disease Treatment and Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, and again on 8-1-10 under the title Viagra, Cialis and Levitra Use with Peyronie’s Disease.

These doctor’s hesitance to discuss or speculate that the increase of PD parallels the increase use of these drugs due to yet another drug side-effect of yet another group of drugs itself can be speculated upon.   Each man with PD must make up his own mind if this possibility makes sense to him, and if it is further reasonable to avoid the use of these drugs if he wishes to avoid further injury to his penis.     

Protection for Peyronie’s Disease during Intercourse

Girth enhancement rings stabilize Peyronies

Since 2002 Peyronie’s Disease Institute has made several different products available to our customers that offer important penile protection while still allowing sexual intercourse to take place.   One of these is the girth enhancement ring or sleeve, please see Girth Enhancement Ring.

Using this uncomplicated device provides a level of support that greatly reduces the possibility of re-injury of the penis during intercourse.  For many men this simple and inexpensive device is essential in a couple’s ability to engage in sex at all – for many men the added support is needed to make penetration.

The basic girth enhancement sleeve is a thick but flexible tube that is open at both ends, made of very soft and stretchy silicone material.  The penis is slipped into the tube and the glans or head of the penis sticks out at the other end for full sexual contact.   With this added support the shaft is less likely to be re-injured by sudden bending or collapse.

Even if the cause of Peyronie’s disease in your case was not trauma, it is critical that you do all you can to not injure your penis during sex if you have PD.  The following deformities present a real or potential weakness of the shaft of the penis that can easily get re-injured during sexual activity, and therefore will benefit from the use of girth enhancement sleeve:

1.    Twist

2.    Curve

3.    Bend

4.    Dent, dink, nick, depression, impression or filling error

5.    Bottleneck deformity

6.    Hourglass deformity

Any of these Peyronies deformities is weakest at the area of the greatest distortion, or thinnest part of the shaft, that can suddenly bend, fold or collapse during insertion or while thrusting.  This is the area over which the girth enhancement sleeve should be worn.

Dealing with a penis that is weak in one small area is like having an ankle that is weak because of an earlier injury, making it susceptible to re-injury.   Also, just like a sprained ankle, each penile re-injury occurs more easily and gets progressively worse.  The best approach to take is to not allow additional injury to take place so the tissue remains as healthy and strong as possible.  For the ankle the treatment is to wear a support and to slow down so that you do not hurt yourself again.  The same with Peyronie’s disease.

A valuable second benefit to the girth ring support is the additional thickness or girth it adds to the penis that can make up for the lost dimension that many men experience.

I urge any man whose penis is distorted by Peyronie’s disease – known as a Peyronie’s penis – to investigate the girth enhancement sleeve to provide protection during sexual activity to avoid re-injury and worsening of his problem.

Beta-Blockers and Peyronie’s Disease

What is a beta-blocker?

Anyone who has looked for a cause of Peyronie’s disease will eventually read about a drug called a beta-blocker.   I will not bore you with the technical aspects of the chemistry and physiology of beta-blockers, but only what might be important to you as someone who suffers with PD.

Beta-blockers are prescription drugs used to treat a wide variety of conditions, but most often heart-related disorders like abnormal and irregular heart rhythms, chest pain, and the immediate symptoms of a heart attack, as well as to lower the heart rate and reduce the force of heart contraction.  They are available in tablet, liquid and injection forms.  Beta-blockers can also be used to treat migraine headaches, social phobias, hypertension, muscle tremors related to anxiety and/or an overactive thyroid gland. Timolol is a particular beta-blocker that is prescribed as an eye drop, used in the glaucoma treatment since this beta-blocker reduces the pressure of fluid inside the eye. Beta blockers have been called "the musicians underground drug" because they can be used for performance anxiety.

Some of the more popular beta-blockers and their brand names are: acebutolol (Sectral), atenolol (Tenormin), bisoprolol (Zebeta), metoprolol (Lopressor, Lopressor LA, Toprol XL), nadolol (Corgard), and timolol (Blocadren).

Inderal is perhaps the most commonly prescribed beta-blocker.  This beta-blocker affects the heart and circulation particularly well.  It is frequently used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure), heart rhythm disorders, tremors, angina (chest pain), and other heart or circulatory conditions. It is also used to treat or prevent heart attack, and to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.

If you have taken a medication for any of these problems you might have taken a beta-blocker and were not warned about it.  This might be worth checking out.

If you know you have taken a beta-blocker in the past and now have Peyronie’s disease, this might be a possible explanation for your PD and you might want to discuss this with the doctor who prescribed it for you.

If you are currently taking a beta-blocker you need to know that this category of medication should not be stopped suddenly, since this can bring about an attack of the original condition – sometimes more severe than the original problem – plus a rapid and dangerous rise of the blood pressure.  If beta-blocker use should be stopped or reduced, this should only be done under close medical supervision.  The best way to continue your Peyronie’s disease treatment is to keep your doctor informed and aware of what you are doing with Alternative Medicine.  You should try to get him or her to be a part of your natural Peyronie’s disease treatment.

Peyronie’s disease connection to beta-blockers

All beta-blocker drugs list Peyronie's disease as a possible side effect.  This association has been borne out in communication with men in my work with the Peyronie’s Disease Institute.

Possible Peyronie’s Cause: Catheter and Cystoscope Trauma

Unrelated cancer surgery possible cause of Peyronie’s disease

Debate and confusion persist about a Peyronie’s cause, no matter how much time passes.

We who deal with Peyronies on a daily basis know that not much research effort is given to this problem we share.  Medical research into the cause of Peyronie’s disease is often directed toward a genetic quirk or biochemical flaw within the cellular structure – that can be treated with drugs.  In spite of a hundred years of failure looking for a pharmacologically treatable Peyronie’s disease cause, one obvious area has not received much interest: trauma.

No one denies that trauma is at least a common secondary cause of Peyronie’s disease, if not the primary cause.  Yet, there is nothing in the medical literature that addresses the great amount of totally preventable trauma delivered while under medical care.  It is my opinion that doctors can be a Peyronie’s cause during the sometimes brutal and hidden trauma of male catheterization and cystoscopic examination that occurs before, during or after many types of surgery, like bladder or penis surgery.

Since 2002 when I started the Peyronie’s Disease Institute I have communicated with a host of surgical nurses.  They advise me that during surgery, while a man is under general anesthesia and is catheterized or given a urethral scope examination for any reason the process is often rushed and aggressive since the patient is not awake or aware.

To understand the potential problem, consider that the male urinary opening at the tip of the penis is a slit that averages 0.15 to 0.20 inches (4-5 mm) in length, compared to a 9 mm catheter or cystoscope that is put into that slit.  .

The potential for abuse that can lead to Peyronie’s disease exists because the size of the cystoscope used for men ranges from between the thickness of a pencil up to approximately 9mm.  In addition, many cystoscopes have extra tubes to guide other instruments for surgical procedures to treat urinary problems.  That is a lot of material that goes up that little passage way.  Sometimes twists and narrowed areas of the male urethra are encountered that prevent passage, when the catheter or cystoscope will be forced deeper by a surgeon who encounters difficulty.  This, I have been told, is a common problem that is not much talked about.

Nurses get into big trouble, and jeopardize job security, for revealing what they see and hear in the operating room.

It is my speculation that unnecessary injury related to forceful and rushed catheterization or cystoscope insertion is the reason many men develop PD that they cannot otherwise explain.  This opinion is based on the number of men I speak to who tell me they cannot account for their PD based on penile trauma.  Of these men who recall no direct penile trauma, when I ask about any kind of surgery that took place within a year or so before developing PD, at least 95% tell me they were either catheterized or received a cystoscopic examination for one reason or another.

For this reason I speculate these men were traumatized during their catheterization or cystoscopic procedure sufficiently to injure their tunica albuginea enough to cause Peyronie’s disease.

One example within Peyronie’s disease research to support this theory of an association between surgical catheterization and cystoscopic examination and PD, comes from the Urology Service of the Department of Surgery, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, in June of 2010 published an article in Urology Times titled, “Peyronie’s Disease Following Radical Prostatectomy:  Incidence and Predictors.”

This search for a cause of Peyronie's disease must consider that for men in their 50s, both prostate cancer and Peyronie's disease are fairly common.  The purpose of this project was to determine if there was an actual link between those men who had a radical prostatectomy (RP) operation for prostate cancer and Peyronie’s disease.

They reviewed their sexual medicine database from 2002 to 2008.  They isolated men who received a RP as the only form of treatment for a well-defined and localized prostate cancer, looking for those who developed Peyronies within three years after their RP surgery and compared this group to those men who did not develop Peyronies.  They studied 1,011 such men, of whom 15.9% PD – a number higher than the general population.   They found that the average time for a man to develop PD after his RP was 14 months, give or take a month.   The average curvature was determined to be 31 degrees, +/- 17 degrees.   They further found that younger men (average of 59 years) who had a RP operation were more likely to develop PD afterward, than older men (average of 60 years), and that white race men (18%) were more likely to develop PD than non-white rave men (7%).    Also, they discovered that erectile function after RP surgery did not predict the later development of PD.

Because men who experienced sexual dysfunction after RP were found to develop Peyronie’s disease more frequently than the general population, the study suggested that this group should be routinely evaluated for PD.

This study, written by R. Tal, M. Heck and others, speculates that the Peyronie’s cause for these men might be somehow related to their prostate cancer.

Because it is common for the medical community to primarily delve deeply and intently into the biochemical and hereditary factors for a cause of Peyronie's disease,  without consideration of more simple and obvious reasons, they do not much evaluate for trauma.   Surgical trauma is a possible Peyronie’s disease cause for those with a history of prior radical prostatectomy (because of the cystoscopic and catheterization procedures they receive), but apparently is not investigated since this would cause a medicolegal problem for the medical community and little reason to use medication.

My Penis is Curved

How to straighten a penis

What a shock when you realize, “My penis is curved.  How did that happen, and what is going on down there?"  And the most important question to Google, "How to straighten my penis?”

While there are several other causes of a curved penis to suddenly happen, the most common one, and the most difficult one to deal with is Peyronie’s disease.   Peyronie’s disease is a condition that occurs in about 6-10% of men over the age of 40 (although it can affect teenagers and men in their early 20s) in which a dense and thick mass of fibrous tissue, called a Peyronie’s plaque or scar, is found within the tunica albuginea layer on the inside of the penis.  The presence of a nodule or band of fibrous tissue under the skin of the penis will prevent the normal expansion of the chambers of the penis during an erection.  This causes the erection to be distorted resulting in a curve, bend, hinge, hourglass or bottleneck distortion.

To assist you to determine if you have PD, please visit Peyronie’s symptoms and check out some of the Peyronie’s pictures of curved penis.  It is necessary for anyone who thinks he might have Peyronie’s disease to go to his doctor to have a complete examination so an accurate diagnosis can be made. Do not make the mistake to think you can self-diagnose this problem.

It is important to remember that the problem of Peyronie’s disease is not that you have a curved penis.  The problem is actually the Peyronie’s scar that is present within the deep tissue of the tunica albuginea causing incomplete filling of the penile chambers, resulting in the curved penis that got your attention.  For this reason any treatment that is directed solely at trying to make the penis straight without removing or eliminating the PD plaque will not be successful.

While the Peyronie’s Disease Institute does not take a position against Peyronie’s surgery, we feel too many men resort to penis surgery far too soon before trying conservative treatment.   If a man knows he has Peyronie’s disease he should also know the problem is that his body produced excessive scar tissue or plaque in response to a small injury or inflammation of the deep penile tissue layer.  What does he assume will happen to that same tissue when a surgeon cuts that same tissue and also tugs on it, stretches it, and put stitches into it during the course of Peyronie’s surgery?  There is a very good chance that more excessive scar tissue will result.  This is why many urologists and surgeons take a position against all Peyronie’s surgery.

Since 2002 the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has educated men about the use of Alternative Medicine to assist the body to heal the Peyronie’s plaque.  Fifty percent of men naturally recover from Peyronie’s disease without any help or outside intervention; the problem just goes away on its own like any other health problem should.  Our approach is to assist each man to enable his body to heal naturally like those in that lucky 50% group.

So if you are one of us who has said in shock, “My penis is curved,” you now know what to do about it.  Learn more about Peyronie’s disease treatment with Alternative Medicine. Another good source of information is the Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.

Potaba and Peyronie’s Disease Treatment

Potaba for Peyronie's treatment based on PABA, a vitamin

PABA, or para-aminobenzoic acid, with a formula of H2NC6H4CO2H, is a white crystalline substance that is slightly water soluble.  POTABA, used to treat Peyronie's disease, is simply PABA with a molecule of potassium added to it.

PABA has been referred to as Vitamin Bx because it is an intermediate step in the bacterial manufacturing of folate or folic acid in the intestinal tract.  Some bacteria in the human intestinal tract, such as E. coli, require PABA for proper metabolism. Humans require folate since we lack the enzymes to convert PABA to folate, hence it is made available via the bacterial flora.  Sulfonamide drugs are similar to PABA in their chemical structure, and their antibacterial activity is due to their ability to interfere with the conversion of PABA to folate by the enzyme dihydropteroate synthetase.  In this way bacterial growth is restricted through folate deficiency without effect on human cells.

Medical use of Potaba (potassium para-aminobenzoate)

Potaba inhibits abnormal fibroblast proliferation, thus it can reduce formation of scar material early after injury.  It is speculated that this POTABA anti-inflammatory activity is dependent on initial biotransformation that starts with granulocytes that are stimulated through the initial injury.  It also inhibits abnormal fibroblast proliferation, acid mucopolysaccharide and glycosaminoglycan secretion that occur during the normal inflammatory process.

POTABA has been used to treat a variety of conditions characterized by chronic inflammation and fibrosis; this list includes scleroderma, dermatomyositis, morphea, pulmonary fibrosis and Peyronie's disease.

A POTABA research study was conducted by Carson who retrospectively reviewed 32 patients who were treated with 4,000 Mg of Potaba three times daily, for at least three months and later were followed for an average of 14.4 months.   Carson reported reduction of penile pain in 44% of those studied,  plaque or scar size reduction in 56%, and improvement of penile angulation in 58%. Complete reversal of penile distortion and angulation occurred in 26% of those studied. The average interval to improvement was 4.2 months, and younger patients with a shorter duration of disease were more likely to respond to therapy.  Even thought Carson’s study did not have controls, it suggests a possible role for POTABA in the medical therapy of Peyronie's disease.

Unfortunately, the results of Carson’s retrospective and uncontrolled research were not reported as an intent-to-treat study.  Further, the number of research subjects who started therapy but stopped because of severe abdominal symptoms prior to three months has never been disclosed.

Because of the expense of POTABA, the need to take POTABA three or more times daily, and frequent occurrence of severe gastrointestinal side-effects (burning pain, abdominal cramping, and bowel irritability0, make it very difficult for the average man with Peyronie’s disease to follow the treatment guidelines for even a short time.  Yet in order to be effective, the length of POTABA therapy is variable, but sometimes lasting 12-24 months of active care.

Medical use of PABA

When a single potassium molecule is added to PABA, it results in what is called a potassium salt; this combination of potassium and PABA is called POTABA.  It is used as a drug against fibrotic skin disorders, and as such it can be used in Peyronie's disease treatment.  PABA is also occasionally used to treat Irritable bowel syndrome to and related gastrointestinal symptoms, and in nutritional epidemiological studies to assess the completeness of 24-hour urine collection for the determination of urinary sodium, potassium, or nitrogen levels.

Despite the absence of any recognized syndromes of PABA deficiency in humans, many benefits are claimed for PABA as a nutritional supplement.  PABA is said to improve fatigue, irritability, depression, weeping eczema (moist eczema), scleroderma (premature hardening of skin), a patchy pigment loss in skin called vitiligo, and premature gray hair.

Peyronie’s disease:  POTABA or PABA?

The first Peyronie’s treatment work involved PABA, the vitamin.  When this was shown to be successful, work was then done to show that POTABA, the drug, could be more successful.  The interest is working with POTABA – the drug – was greater than with PABA – the vitamin – because the drug is more profitable and is easier to control use and distribution through the medical profession.

The reason PDI promotes the use of PABA for Peyronie’s disease treatment is because it has almost no side effects, is much less expensive to use, does not require a prescription and it combines well with other Alternative Medicine therapies.

Diagnosis of Peyronie’s Disease

Poor welcome to the world of Peyronie’s disease

It seems that most men cannot clearly or fully understand the scope of the problem when they are first given a diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease.

Obviously, when a man goes to the doctor for the first time it is because he is having a problem of some type with “his plumbing.”   It might be the sudden or gradual appearance of pain, a lump or nodule, curved penis or distortion of some type, or reduced sexual ability, that brings him to see his doctor or surf the Internet. While he knows he is having a few Peyronie's disease  symptoms that were not there until recently, he is surprised to learn there is actually a medical condition that causes his problem.

After being given the diagnosis, a common first mental question often is, “If there is this problem that can so cruelly affect a man, why on earth have I never heard of Peyronie’s disease before today?

It has been recently estimated that after the age of 40, there are about four to six cases of Peyronie’s disease for every 100 men around the world.  That is a lot of men and a lot of cases of Peyronie’s disease.  For such a common condition, why is it that no one seems to know about PD until it is too late?

There are a few answers to this question, and they are all important to any man dealing with Peyronie’s disease:

  1. No one likes to admit he has a problem, or is less than perfect, when it comes to his sexual apparatus and his sexual ability.
  2. No one wants to the subject of teasing or to be pitied.
  3. There is often such social restriction limiting discussion of sexual matters that prevents open and free information that limits the discussion of Peyronie’s disease or similar topics.

This is indeed unfortunate because if there was more knowledge of Peyronie’s disease there probably would be less of it. Additionally, if there was more knowledge and comfort  discussing this problem we would probably be a lot closer to a genuine Peyronie’s treatment than we are now.

If more young men were given more information, such as how trauma is associated with the start of Peyronie’s disease in over half of the cases, it is more likely that reasonable caution and defensive measures would be taken.  It is very difficult to avoid a problem if you do not know it exists. This is why in “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” I spend a fair amount of time describing how men should talk to their sons about this problem.

To learn more about Peyronie’s disease, please go to the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website for information about cause, progression and Peyronie's natural treatment.

Peyronie’s Treatment Help Starts Here

Peyronie’s Treatment Help – Right Now

Every day I talk to men who need Peyronie’s treatment help.  As a result, they take control of their Peyronie’s disease treatment.  They no longer feel like helpless victims. They are in control and less stressed because of the work they do to eliminate their Peyronie’s disease scar.

Consequently, PDI receives reports from 8-10 men with moderate to marked Peyronie’s treatment help and improvement for every one failure.  That is nice success!

What we propose at PDI is not earth shattering or extreme. It all starts with a simple question:  If half of men naturally cure or self-heal their own Peyronie’s disease, why not me? That is all we attempt to do.  PDI tries to help men heal better. This is not such a strange idea. You are looking for Peyronie’s treatment help, to do a better job of healing.

Peyronie’s treatment concept in a nutshell

The PDI approach is simple:  Do everything you can – all at the same time – to help your body heal your Peyronie’s disease.  As someone once said, “PDI treatment is like ganging up on Peyronie’s disease. I supply myself with all the things I need to do a better job of curing my Peyronie’s disease.”

If you did not heal your PD in the first 12-18 months like so many men do, perhaps you just need a little Peyronie’s treatment help. You will only know if it can work, if you try.

Help Peyronie’s treatment naturally

All PDI Peyronie’s disease treatment ideas and strategies come from this Alternative Medicine website and the “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.” If your Peyronie’s curved penis creates sexual distress, read Dr. Herazy’s second book, “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex.”

Three simple steps for Peyronie’s treatment help:

Learn about natural Peyronie’s treatment.  The doctor who diagnosed your Peyronie’s disease told you next to nothing about it. Now you are on the internet looking for help to avoid penis surgery. Get clear and practical Peyronie’s treatment help from a doctor who had PD and cured it. Learn what he used and how he used it.  Peyronie’s treatment help starts with education.

Start the most aggressive therapy plan you can use for 3-4 months. Larger treatment plans give better results than smaller plans. Read about the “Large (Best) Plan” for personal treatment. The “Medium (Better) Plan” is perhaps the most popular of the three plans. The “Small (Good) Plan” is a good starting point. Modify any plan by subtracting or adding, to suit your personal Peyronie’s disease treatment philosophy.

PEYRONIE’S TREATMENT STARTS LIKE THIS

Peyronies Help To Use Right Now

Every day I talk to men who are have taken control of their Peyronies disease situation and are helping their PD when nothing else has helped them. They do it all of this with the information found only on this site.

What we propose at PDI is not so earth shattering or extreme in concept. We simply try to help you figure out why your Peyronie’s plaque did not heal or self-correct like the 50% of men whose Peyronie’s disease goes away on its own. If half of the men naturally “cured” their own Peyronie’s desease, why not you? That is all we are attempting to accomplish with our therapy concept. It is really not so far out as some of the other things you find on the Internet.

Do these three simple things to get started right now:

1. Learn about your Peyronies problem. You were told nothing, or next to nothing, about Peyronies disease by the doctor who gave you the diagnosis. You are on the internet right now looking for answers, so get them in a special book I wrote, called “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.” This book gives you all the information about day-to-day treating and living with Peyronie’s disease you will need. The information found in this book is different in many ways than the information on our website; there is no duplication of information between the book and the website. Another book that will help you tremendously is “Peyronie’s Disease & Sex” that covers all aspects of this complex subject. Get help through education.

2. Start the most aggressive therapy plan you are comfortable following so that you will get your best results. If you are interested in doing all that you can to help yourself, then perhaps you could consider using what is called the “Large (Best) Plan” for personal treatment. The “Medium (Better) Plan” is perhaps the most popular of the three plans. There is a “Small (Good) Plan” that is also well designed. It is very common for men to substitute Neprinol in place of the two smaller products, Nattokinase and Serrapeptase in any of the plans. These products and plans are found at http://peyronies-disease-help.com/buy.html All can be modified, by subtracting or adding, to suit your personal thinking about Peyronie’s disease treatment.

Or, you can design your own therapy plan using the information found on this website. You do not have to use any of these model plans, they are only examples – but they make sense and they have helped hundreds of men improve their Peyronies plaque and reduce the bent penis of Peyronie’s disease.

3. Stop being discouraged. Sign up for the Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Forum blog and get motivated, inspired, educated and reminded that everyday men around the world are actually beating their Peyronies problem using the Alternative Medicine methods of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute.

As you will soon see, the PDI website is full of exciting and helpful research information about Peyronie’s disease treatment you have never seen before. You will also see this site is different because it gives you the answers you have been looking for. But you must work along with the PDI guidelines in order to get the kind of results you will read about.

We strongly suggest you get all of your therapy products and supplements from PDI. The products we use have been selected after years of experimentation because they are special, and a prime reason for the results our customers receive. The PDI therapy concept and strategy are built around the therapy products available from PDI, and no others. Peyronie’s Disease Institute only uses what are called “pharmaceutical grade” products, which are of a higher quality and purity level, and pass rigorous tests to guarantee that what is on the label is contained in each capsule. Time and again we see that when men switch over to PDI products and follow our instructions, good things start to happen. Our therapy products have been used successfully in hundreds of treatment programs. Most people understand that it is a poor time to experiment and sample bargain products while they are attempting to repair a serious health problem like Peyronie’s disease.

With over 31,000 nutritional products available on the worldwide market, this subject is confusing. Many of them – more than you would believe – do not contain what they are supposed to contain. They have far fewer – or none – of the nutrients you need to do the big job in front of you.

PDI cannot answer your questions or help you with your therapy plan if we do not have knowledge, experience or confidence with “foreign” therapies. On the PDI website we clearly state, “Sorry, but due to the volume of emails PDI receives and with limited hours available in a day, we can only answer questions from PDI customers. Purchase your therapy products only from PDI so you have full access to the vast experience and careful assistance available to our customers. If you purchase inferior grade or questionable bargain products elsewhere, you will have to rely upon that source for whatever help you might need later.”

Please email me any questions you might have about treatment of PD with Alternative Medicine, I will be happy to help you in any way that I can. info@peyronies-diseae-help.com.

PEYRONIE’S TREATMENT STARTS LIKE THIS

Peyronies Help To Use Right Now

Every day I talk to men who are have taken control of their Peyronies disease situation and are helping their PD when nothing else has helped them. They do it all of this with the information found only on this site.

What we propose at PDI is not so earth shattering or extreme in concept. We simply try to help you figure out why your Peyronie’s plaque did not heal or self-correct like the 50% of men whose Peyronie’s disease goes away on its own. If half of the men naturally “cured” their own Peyronie’s desease, why not you? That is all we are attempting to accomplish with our therapy concept. It is really not so far out as some of the other things you find on the Internet.

Do these three simple things to get started right now:

1. Learn about your Peyronies problem. You were told nothing, or next to nothing, about Peyronies disease by the doctor who gave you the diagnosis. You are on the internet right now looking for answers, so get them in a special book I wrote, called “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook.” This book gives you all the information about day-to-day treating and living with Peyronie’s disease you will need. The information found in this book is different in many ways than the information on our website; there is no duplication of information between the book and the website. Another book that will help you tremendously is “Peyronie’s Disease & Sex” that covers all aspects of this complex subject. Get help through education.

2. Start the most aggressive therapy plan you are comfortable following so that you will get your best results. If you are interested in doing all that you can to help yourself, then perhaps you could consider using what is called the “Large (Best) Plan” for personal treatment. The “Medium (Better) Plan” is perhaps the most popular of the three plans. There is a “Small (Good) Plan” that is also well designed. It is very common for men to substitute Neprinol in place of the two smaller products, Nattokinase and Serrapeptase in any of the plans. These products and plans are found at http://peyronies-disease-help.com/buy.html All can be modified, by subtracting or adding, to suit your personal thinking about Peyronie’s disease treatment.

Or, you can design your own therapy plan using the information found on this website. You do not have to use any of these model plans, they are only examples – but they make sense and they have helped hundreds of men improve their Peyronies plaque and reduce the bent penis of Peyronie’s disease.

3. Stop being discouraged. Sign up for the Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Forum blog and get motivated, inspired, educated and reminded that everyday men around the world are actually beating their Peyronies problem using the Alternative Medicine methods of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute.

As you will soon see, the PDI website is full of exciting and helpful research information about Peyronie’s disease treatment you have never seen before. You will also see this site is different because it gives you the answers you have been looking for. But you must work along with the PDI guidelines in order to get the kind of results you will read about.

We strongly suggest you get all of your therapy products and supplements from PDI. The products we use have been selected after years of experimentation because they are special, and a prime reason for the results our customers receive. The PDI therapy concept and strategy are built around the therapy products available from PDI, and no others. Peyronie’s Disease Institute only uses what are called “pharmaceutical grade” products, which are of a higher quality and purity level, and pass rigorous tests to guarantee that what is on the label is contained in each capsule. Time and again we see that when men switch over to PDI products and follow our instructions, good things start to happen. Our therapy products have been used successfully in hundreds of treatment programs. Most people understand that it is a poor time to experiment and sample bargain products while they are attempting to repair a serious health problem like Peyronie’s disease.

With over 31,000 nutritional products available on the worldwide market, this subject is confusing. Many of them – more than you would believe – do not contain what they are supposed to contain. They have far fewer – or none – of the nutrients you need to do the big job in front of you.

PDI cannot answer your questions or help you with your therapy plan if we do not have knowledge, experience or confidence with “foreign” therapies. On the PDI website we clearly state, “Sorry, but due to the volume of emails PDI receives and with limited hours available in a day, we can only answer questions from PDI customers.

Peyronie’s Disease and a Man Whose House is on Fire

Peyronie’s Disease and a Man Whose House is on Fire

A little story from the Peyronie’s Disease Institute that expresses the thoughts and frustrations of someone with Peyronie’s disease:

One day, a man came home to find his house was on fire. He ran to his neighbor’s house.  “Hurry,” he yelled, “call the fire department. My house is on fire!”

The neighbor came to the widow.  In a professional voice he replied, “Be calm, and try not to worry. Research shows 50% of house fires go out by themselves. In my opinion, there is no need to bother the fire department. I suggest you wait to see if you will be one of the lucky ones.”

The first man replied, “Are you kidding? 50/50 odds are terrible! If I’m in the wrong 50% group, I could lose everything. I can’t take a chance like that. The fire is small now and it’s on the first floor.  So, maybe I can do something to take care of it myself. If you won’t call the fire department for me, I’ll just use a garden hose to help myself.”

Neighborly advice

The neighbor again casually replied, ” I advise against it.  There have been no double-blind or cross-over scientific studies to show that a man with a single garden hose can consistently put out a small house fire. Some studies have shown that it works, but then again, other studies show that it doesn’t work. There is so much controversy about this subject.  I think we need more studies in this area.  With no official agreement how to handle this problem. Besides, I have to protect my reputation for always being right.”Peyronie's disease, a curved penis and Peyronie's plaque is an emergency for most men that requres immediate action

“Besides, I have to think about you suing me if I give you bad advice about putting out your fire.  I am going to suggest you do nothing right now. That’s about the safest advice for me to give to you.  I know it must be terribly inconvenient for your house to be on fire, but I have to protect myself, you know. Can’t you just wait a while longer for more research to prove your garden hose idea is actually correct?  Research is being done right now to develop a new chemical that can be used to put out small house fires. Of course, any new chemical will be expensive and will only be available through authorized outlets that will have to charge a lot of money for the product.  Eventually, it could be helpful in a situation like this.”

His reply

In a panic, the man shouted, “My house is on fire right now.  It is getting worse by the minute. I need help right now. I can’t wait for your studies and your research.  And, I can’t wait for any new chemical. If some of the studies show that the garden hose will put out a house fire or at least control it, then why shouldn’t I try it? I would be a fool to not try it because it might be just the right thing to do. Maybe I can get a few garden hoses going and even increase the odds it will work. If it works, look at what I have gained – if it doesn’t work, who cares, at least I tried.”

The neighbor shrugged, “Be patient. You know, I see you are upset. If your home is destroyed – and becomes useless –, you can always get someone to fix it. Think of it as your back-up solution. If your house becomes useless, just get it repaired. I’ve heard that some of these houses turn out fairly good after a fire.”

Something has to be done

The first man snapped, “You are nuts! Why should I let this fire get so bad that I need someone to fix it? Some contractors are better than others; what if I get a bad one? I have heard horror stories about bad contractors. What if there are problems with the contractor’s work? What will I do if my house isn’t as good as before the fire? Even good contractors sometimes have problems with their work. I could be stuck for the rest of my life with bad results. No. Common sense tells me to protect what I have and try to avoid dealing with any contractor if I can.”

The neighbor leaned against his doorway and told the frustrated man, “I guess the garden hose idea could do no real harm. However, you could be wasting water, you know. Be careful that you do not use more water than you actually need. Now, I’ve read some studies about using too much water to put out a fire, and… ”

Doing something is better than nothing

The first man didn’t hear the neighbor’s last bit of logic.

He was now running back to his burning house and the garden hose. He shouted back to the neighbor, “You would feel differently if your house on fire. I have to do something to help myself if you can’t offer me better help than that. I have to do what makes sense to me, even if there is no research to prove me right.” The man picked up his hose and started helping himself. In the end, he felt less stressed as he got busy doing all he could in a bad situation.

Who knows, maybe he even saved his house.

Peyronie’s Disease and a History Lesson

Peyronie’s Disease and Important Lessons from History

Throughout history, terrible epidemics arise periodically. As we discuss it, you will see there is an interesting application to Peyronie’s disease natural treatment.

Throughout history great epidemics have occurred, killing huge numbers in a given population. Some of these are even given names, like the Black Plague. However, no matter how severe the epidemic, an entire population has never been lost in an epidemic. This is a simple fact that has great importance to Peyronie’s treatment.

That the human race survived the ravages of many deadly epidemics tells us something about ourselves.  It is a commentary about our ability to defend against disease and heal tissue.  To illustrate, in every epidemic there are survivors.  There are those who recover after becoming sick, and others who never even get sick at all.  From this, we learn our bodies, for the most part, do a great job of defending, mending and repairing, even in the face of great health challenges.

Small pox

As an example, a smallpox epidemic will typically kill 30-50% of people who are exposed. On top of that, do you realize that not all people after exposure to small pox will develop the disease?   Or, if they get it, it will be a mild case from which they recover.  Why is that?  Yet, if a small pox epidemic is so bad that 30-50% of a population will die, what about the other 50-70% of people who survive the small pox epidemic? Why do 50-70% survive?  Should it not happen that 80%, 90% or all of those exposed to smallpox die from it?

What is so special about the 50-70% of a population who survive a small pox epidemic?  What do they do, or not do, that allows them to survive?  Simple question, complex answer. Nevertheless, it is easy to assume that the 50-70% who survive have a healthier and more robust immune system; better functioning body chemistry and physiology. Their ability to defend and heal was better than those who did not survive.  All of this perhaps fueled by better nutrition than those others.

There is another way to say it that sounds a little silly. We can generalize and over-simplify. Those who do not have health problems are healthier than those who do sick and die. Some bodies function better to heal, repair and survive than others.  The same is true of any health problem, even Peyronie’s disease.  If your body is working at its highest level, you stand a better chance of avoiding, healing or surviving a health problem. This is where the PDI theory about PD comes in.

Peyronie’s disease 

If up to half of men who develop Peyronie’s disease will heal it in 12-18 months, what about you?  Moreover, what is the best way to assist reversal and recovery for more PD sufferers?  Our interest at PDI is to determine why this reversal of scarring happens in these 50% of PD cases that self-heal.  We think we are on the right track with our efforts.  This website offers our ideas about increasing your ability to heal and repair the Peyronie’s disease scar.

We all have seen from our everyday observations and experience that scarring does not always happen. Sometimes scarring occurs and sometimes not.  At the Peyronie’s Disease Institute, we attempt to create a favorable environment in which PD scarring heals to the best of each man’s ability, maybe even eliminated.  Our effort is to encourage and support the normal healing response of the tissue to injury. Remember:  no epidemic killed everyone. Therefore, we know our body has an amazing ability to repair and heal. History proves this to us.

PDI treatment theory

History tells us that not everyone becomes ill and dies during an epidemic. The stronger and healthier bodies operate better to stay healthy and recover.  PDI works with the theory to heal the PD scar, do a series of simple and straightforward things to improve your tissue health and immune response.

Perhaps, if you work a bit to increase your ability to repair and heal your problem, you might  avoid Peyronie’s disease surgery.  Wouldn’t that be nice?
