Strange reaction to Peyronies therapy
Every now and then I get a question about the variety of unusual sensations and reactions that men notice during Peyronie’s treatment, or immediately after, a particular therapy used in Peyronies treatment. These are the Peyronie’s disease therapies most often associated with this kind of response:
- Genesen Acutouch Pointers
- Manual stretching method found on the CD
- DMSO PMD formula
- Super CP Serum copper peptide ointment
Most often the sensation is described as a "tingling” or “aching” or “electrical” sensation in or near the area of treatment. It can be felt during or within the hour any of these therapies are applied. The intensity can be variable from time to time it is felt; sometimes very mild and hardly noticeable, and at other times enough to wake a person from a sound sleep. Sometimes the response occurs each time the treatment is done, and for other men the reaction occurs every now and then at irregular times.
If you experience this kind of reaction in the area of your Peyronie’s scar, do not become alarmed. It is common and usually signals some good response to your Peyronie’s treatment as changes are occurring in the condition of the scar.
This is not something that has been studied much in the scientific literature since those researchers prescribing drugs or standard medical procedures for PD do not get the kind of reactions and responses that occur while following the Peyronie’s Disease Institute therapy principles. They do not report this kind of reaction because they do not make the kind of rapid changes that are seen in men using the PDI protocols.
Therefore, there is no research that has been done to explain this phenomenon. It is my theory that these reactions are due to the rapid changes that take place in the tissue in and around the scar material. During or after a particular Peyronie’s treatment a change may occur in the tension and length of the otherwise contracted scar material of the penis. These alterations of tension and position of the tissue layers could easily explain the unusual sensations that occur. I find from my own treatment experience, and that of other men who have had improvement in their Peyronie’s disease, that these "moving" or “tingling” or “aching” sensations appear when the scar is undergoing some level of change (improvement). Many men come to count on the appearance of these changes to herald improvement of their scars from time to time.
It is most probably NOT just one therapy or just the one product causing this usual sensation. It is closer to the truth to say that these sensations are the sum total of all the synergistic efforts that are included in your therapy plan. The problem (a good problem) with using so many of these therapies together is that you will never be able to accurately say which one did the most or least for you. A synergistic Alternative Medicine therapy plan is a group effort, with all therapies making some contribution to whatever happens to you.
