Dear Dr. Herazy:
I just started following the medium or "better" program for PD. What other therapies or supplements should I consider at this point?
I was thinking about the Genesen Acutouch acupuncture system. Do you think this is a good idea?
If you could give me any thoughts you may have on additional Peyronies therapy, I would appreciate it.
Thank you for your time and care, your email was very informative.
My suggestion is that right now you should pay very close attention to the size, shape, density and surface features of your scar, and faithfully follow your current Peyronie's treatment plan. You should do this for 10-14 days to determine if your medium plan is able to favorably influence your scar.
if it does change your scar then all you need to do is continue with the medium plan just as you are using it until the changes of scar stop or your scar goes away.
If it does not change your scar then you need to modify your current plan – not add to it – in some way. With the medium plan this is usually to increase the dosage of MSM, Fibrozym, Nattokinase or Scar-X. Then you continue for another 10-14 days to see if this plan modification was able to makes changes to the size, shape, density or surface features of your scar.
if it does change your scar then all you need to do is continue with the modified plan just as you are using it until the changes of scar stop or your scar goes away.
If it does not change your scar then you need to modify your plan again in some way. You continue with this slow increase of therapy for a few cycles. If at this point you have run out of ideas, then please contact me and we can discuss your situation.
Yes, the Genesen pens are a great therapy for several reasons. Probably the first is the power of these pens to treat a wide variety of problems; a book is included that lists how to use the Genesen pens to treat over 100 different conditions. Then you have the ability to duplicate a very expensive level of treatment without incurring a great expense. Also, you can treat yourself and your acupuncture points more often than you could afford to do so if you were going to the office of a professional. The Genesen pens are often the difference that boosts therapy results from so-so to significant. You might consider buying them later if it becomes apparent that you need extra help.
Let me know how I can help you. TRH
