Dear Dr. Herazy:
I hope this message finds you and yours in good health.
It has been only three months that I “found” the PDI website after being suffering Peyronie’s disease for more than four years. I was diagnosed back in 2008 approximately when I went for pain on erections (reflected mostly on the front of the penis) to the current curvature of approximately 25 degrees upwards bending a bit to the right as well.
Due to the initial treatment in my country (Cuba) I got initially Vitamin E and then even direct injections on the plaque of Interferon and sessions of laser. None stopped the bending process after pain with erection disappeared. Then I stopped using Vitamin E, suspended laser and the injections and changed to an urologist that has been working on using natural pills made from bee’s propoleo. I have been taking these pills for more than two years before going to bed (and at least three hours after my last meal). This Dr. also used as a method the measurement of the curvature and sporadic ultra-sounds to keep track of the degrees of the curvature. I must say that in more than two years the curvature seems to keep being of the same degree (not healing but not bending either). Unfortunately for me and others this Dr. emigrated. He was substituted by another urologist who seems to have more faith in continuous ultra-sounds to compare the process of growth of the plaque. I skipped going to consultation like a year ago. It must be pessimism or lack of faith that I will solve this disease.
I have gone through serious stress in my own marriage and I feel somehow ashamed that I would not be able to find a woman that will cope with this disease in my country if I decide to divorce my wife. I have had all the reasons to divorce my wife but I feel stuck with her. You know, being from a Latino country and culture machismo is a big thing. I am 52 BTW.
Since I found about PDI I designed my own plan which is currently as follows:
1- I am taking daily at breakfasts:
a- PABA (500 Mg)
b- Acetyl L-Carnitine (500 mg)
c- Glucosamine with MSM (500 mg)
2- I also take daily around 3 PM: MSM (500 mg)
3- I take as well a pill daily 3 hours after dinner of Propoleo
I do not have enough resources but I am ready to pay for whatever even if I have to sell my belongings. So my question to you is what you would suggest someone in my stage of Peyronie’s disease to buy? I know I should buy your books (re: “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex and Peyronie’s Disease Handbook) but what else, please?
Should I use Neprinol? Should I go back to Vitamin E being added to everything I am using already?
Being in the Caribbean (and subject to a US Embargo) the only way I would have to get all I need will be through friends living in the States visiting my country twice a year. I will have to reveal my disease to one of them so to seek his help. I am ready to do whatever it takes.
So sorry to learn of the difficulty you are having in finding and using a good Peyronie’s disease treatment. You are to be commended for working so diligently to help yourself.
While I understand why you have been forced to try to duplicate a PDI-type treatment for Peyronie’s disease using substitute products since you cannot get them from PDI in the U.S., this is a great problem. It is very likely that the quality and subsequent quantity of actual useable nutrients that are available to your body are not sufficient to help your tissue heal and eliminate the Peyronie’s plaque. Just because the label might say there is 500 mg. of PABA or acetyl-L-carnitine in a product does not mean it is of sufficient quality to help your tissue heal, or that it is even present in the pill. This is why I insist that men who are serious about eliminating their PD will only use those products that I have had good success with against Peyronies. Correction of this problem is too important to take a chance that you could be using questionable or poor quality therapy.
As a general comment concerning what you are currently doing, a basic problem is that you are only using internal-type therapy items and no external therapies such as DMSO,topical copper and vitamin E, manual stretching or non-penetrating acupuncture treatments.
Another general comment is that you are apparently taking those therapies you currently have available but you have not tested or compared during use against the size, shape, density or surface features of the PD scars to determine the correct dosage. In other words, you are swallowing a lot of pills hoping something good will happen to you. But that is not how the PDI process works. I want you to know the exactly correct dosage to make the best progress possible.
Yes, both books are a wealth of practical information; they will help you toward your recovery.
Neprinol is a great Peyronie’s therapy, but by itself I have not seen it be very effective; it must be combined with other therapies for maximum benefits to occur. Please refer to the PDI website for more information about this aspect of treatment.In addition, when you order Neprinol from PDI you will be given specific information about how to use it for maximum recovery benefit. See Peyronie’s disease treatment with Neprinol.
Using vitamin E requires that it is the right kind of vitamin E and it is of excellent quality. I cannot advise about using what you currently have been taking because I have no idea if it will be good enough to help you; it could be a waste of your time, effort and money.
Lastly, you are not the only person who we help receive PDI therapy products from visiting relatives. Please send me an email to alert me when you are ready to place your order and I will see to it that we get this done as economically and effectively as possible for you. Please keep me informed and I will do all I can to help you. TRH
