Peyronies Treatment and Attitude

Peyronies care improved with right attitude

When someone starts Peyronies disease treatment using Alternative Medicine there is always a sense of heightened anticipation about how fast results might occur, and how quickly sexual function and lost size might be restored.  Often this attitude of expectation is so intense that an unreasonable anticipation develops that can only lead to disappointment, frustration, and ultimate failure.   This is unfortunate since so much of this self-inflicted problem is totally avoidable.

The best attitude to have while starting Peyronie’s treatment is a simple combination of determination, honest curiosity and low expectations.  Your determination should stem from the fact that there is no known Peyronies cure, other than the fact that 50% of men get over their PD solely because of natural healing and repair of their immune system.   This should serve to make you determined to be one of those 50% of men who corrects his own PD problem.  Honest curiosity should arise from learning about your particular case of Peyronie’s disease in terms of the size, shape, consistency or hardness, and surface features of your plaque or scar formation.  You should also be curious to learn what you use and what you can do to make your scar go away on its own.  Keep your expectations low and allow yourself to the surprised and delighted by whatever progress you can achieve on your own.  Reasonable expectations reduce your stress, and stress slows and inhibits your progress.  Contribute to your recovery with the right mindset that leads to the success you are looking to earn.

Contributing to your ultimate success is to keep in mind that Peyronie’s disease follows almost no pattern of behavior or similar findings or reaction from man to man for comparison.   It seems that each case of Peyronies is different in small and large ways.  And for this reason it is also difficult to anticipate the course of recovery for anyone.  You must be willing to accept the uniqueness of your situation, including how long it will take to begin to see improvement and the eventual elimination of the Peyronie’s plaque that plagues you.  Peyronie’s disease us unlike any other health problem you have ever dealt with, so do not make the mistake of using past experiences to anticipate PD progress.

Lastly, you should not expect to gain good results against your Peyronie’s disease with a half-hearted or minimal effort.  Over and over again I see that men who do little, gain little, and men who do their best, achieve the best.  Stay focused and work hard to eliminate your Peyronie’s plaque and you stand the best change of ridding yourself of this terrible problem.

Medical Peyronie's Cure is Lacking

Peyronie’s disease cure right under your nose

Everyone wants a medical Peyronie’s cure that is a fast, easy, economical – and, oh yes – guaranteed.  In short, the ideal cure for Peyronie’s disease from the traditional medical viewpoint would be simply to pop a pill or two.  In this way everyone with a bent nail could go about with his life as before, with minimal inconvenience or effort.

Why would I say that this is the viewpoint of “everyone”?   Well, simply because we live in a medical society.  When people think of a “cure’ they think of medicine as it is currently being practiced.   All efforts on the medical industry drawing board are directed toward looking for a drug – oral or injectible – to be the great cure for Peyronie’s disease that has evaded us for over 425 years.   Currently, Peyronie’s disease surgery is the only treatment that organized medicine makes available to someone with this problem and it is beset by limitations and drawbacks.

Other than the Peyronie’s Disease Institute no other effort has been made to seriously investigate a treatment for Peyronie’s disease outside of the traditional medical model.

This limited viewpoint of looking only for a medication to treat Peyronie’s disease is typical of the medical and drug industries.   The business people who decide how to approach a particular health problem tend to look at these issues from a profit standpoint; they also only look in directions and for treatment approaches that are not only profitable, but which they can control so that their profit is protected.

Since the perfect Peyronie’s drug has eluded the medical establishment, they are quick to say there is no known cure for Peyronie’s disease.   What this statement really means is that there is no known cure for Peyronie’s disease using a drug or medical procedure they can profit from, control, and manipulate.

There is a Peyronie’s cure

What kind of medical quackery and heresy – nonsense – is it to say that there is a cure for Peyronie’s disease?  Actually none.  The body itself, in a fairly high percent of cases, will heal and correct – cure – the Peyronie’s plaque so that the problem does not advance.  Peyronie’s disease eventually leaves without a trace of deformity, pain, scar formation or limited sexual ability for about half of the men who get this problem.  It is said that about in half of the men who develop Peyronie’s disease, within the first 12-24 months the entire problem will just go away on its own.  Does that sound like a Peyronie’s cure to you?  It does to me.

How does the body go about doing this miraculous thing, to rid itself of the terrible curved penis that is the hallmark of Peyronie’s disease, and heal over the mass of fibrous material that is known as the Peyronie’s plaque?  I do not know; no one knows.  But then again, I do not know how my body does the thousands of miraculous and complex things it does every second of every day of my life.  I do not know, as a small example, how my body can take the breakfast I just ate and convert into living tissue.  We are all just wonderful that way, and part of this is demonstrated when a man heals his own Peyronie’s disease.

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute is involved with the use of a wide variety of nutritional and supplemental products that are intended to increase and improve the ability of the body to heal the Peyronie’s scar.  It is really not so complicated or more mysterious than that.

For those who say it is quackery or nonsense to think that a person can improve his ability to heal and function better in life, I ask, “Why it is that a person eats?”

What is the purpose of eating?  To satisfy the taste buds?  No, that is just a side benefit.  We eat, we put nutrients into our body so it can function; the food we take in is fuel to enable life and repair to take place.   By following the ideas of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute about PD treatment, all we are doing is trying to increase the odds and opportunity for the body to heal and repair in a way that is better than what is happening now.  Call this a Peyronie’s cure if you want, but it is no more miraculous than anything else that your body does during the course of an average day.

Peyronie’s Cure is Where You Find It

Looking at Peyronie’s treatment differently

While it is generally agreed there is no such thing as a Peyronies cure, PDI has shown since 2002 that it is certainly possible to reverse the curved penis of Peyronie’s disease with Alternative Medicine when it is done in the correct way.  This concept is so different than what is promoted on the internet it could be called a new Peyronie’s treatment methodology.

Peyronie’s disease is primarily concerned with the dreaded fibrous Peyronie’s plaque or internal scar material that can cause a variable degree of penile curvature, pain, sex problems, and reduced penis size.  Any true Peyronie’s treatment must address the issue of the fibrous scar.  Yet, when men are first diagnosed by a medical doctor they are told there is no known cause of Peyronies disease and no Peyronie’s cure.

Just because the medical profession does not have a drug as a standard Peyronie’s disease treatment, they have assumed the position there is no such thing as a Peyronie’s cure.  For this reason MDs do not like to treat Peyronie’s disease.  The average medical doctor, even a urologist, has few options for anyone with PD, other than Peyronie’s disease surgery – which often has poor results.

Peyronie’s disease treatment

The current accepted Peyronie’s disease treatment in a medical office is to do nothing for the first one or two years, while waiting for the Peyronie’s problem to either get better or worse on its own.  This is the wait-and-see approach to Peyronie’s treatment is frustrating and irritating to any man who wakes up one morning with the curved penis of Peyronies.

While the medical establishment maintains there is no effective Peyronie’s disease treatment, the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has worked since 2002 using Alternative Medicine in a unique way that proves this is not true.  There is a simple and direct method to for Peyronie’s disease treatment that is either misunderstood or overlooked by the medical profession.  Those who follow the Peyronie’s Disease Institute treatment concepts sometimes even call it a Peyronie’s cure.

Daily I communicate with angry and defeated men who get no help from the medical profession, who are neglected and given no hope or information to help themselves with their Peyronie’s problem.   Men speak of feeling like Peyronie’s orphans.

One of the basic questions of Peyronie’s disease treatment is this:  “If my medical doctor says there is nothing that can be done for me, other than surgery, what does that really mean to me?  For those who are comfortable with thinking independently, they must decide if there are options outside of medicine that the neighborhood MD does not know about, or even care about.

Natural treatment for Peyronie’s disease

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute was started in 2002 by Dr. Theodore Herazy after he successfully cured his own severe PD with Alternative Medicine.  His early experiments with herbs, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other safe natural remedies showed exciting promise for Peyronies help.  Over the years he has guided and counseled hundreds of men each year through the treatment maze toward elimination of the scar and distortion of a Peyronie’s penis.  It is not always an easy assignment, and when it is done incorrectly or without needed gusto it falls short of the desired outcome.   But when a man uses all of the tools available to him in a faithful and aggressive manner, the results can be dramatic and prompt.   It is estimated that about 80% of men with Peyronie’s disease who follow a large plan according to the outline provided on the PDI website, see from moderate to great success in reduction of penile curvature and elimination of the Peyronie’s plaque material.

Even though the medical profession says it can’t be done – it happens anyway because the body knows how to heal itself.  Using the Peyronie’s Disease Institute concepts, you will be able to assist and stimulate that natural healing response that some people call a Peyronie’s cure.

Peyronie's disease treatment inspiration

Just the other day I ran into this exciting quote that meant a lot to me.  I can only hope it will inspire you to feel more focused and confident as you conduct your Peyronie’s disease treatment; to gather your inner strength to do more to help yourself along during the repeated trials and long days you spend working for your personal Peyronies cure.

“At the moment of commitment, the universe conspires to assist you.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

I have seen this is in action in my life.  I have noticed many times, usually in great despair, that when I finally make up my mind about something – I finally no longer resist, but deeply and completely commit myself  – then suddenly the situation changes.  Problems reveal solutions.  Difficult people become cooperative.  I feel my determination and strength return.  Mountains of objections and problems become transparent to reveal the situation in such a different way that answers and success are finally in view.

Of course, all of this applies to Peyronie’s disease treatment in more ways than you can imagine.  If you find that you are more negative than you can stand, and you cannot think clearly any longer about the dark place you are in, send me a comment here.  Let’s work on it together.   TRH

Ladies Peyronies Forum – Women only!

Peyronie’s Disease Forum for Women Serves Useful Purpose

Women need a Peyronie’s forum for their special needs and issues.

While no one can doubt that the man who has Peyronies suffers in many ways with this problem, the women who love and live with these men suffer greatly in their own way.  Every woman touched by Peyronie’s disease suffers not less because hers’ is an indirect involvement, but perhaps more because of the acute frustration and helplessness of being unable to do anything to comfort her man during his times of distress.

Many of the emails I receive each day come from the women who are just as confused, frustrated, and angry about all the same issues that each man experiences in trying to deal with PD – with a few added issues.

Just as the man who first learns he has Peyronies, the woman must also attempt to grasp the answers to the basic questions that commonly arise at this time:

  1. This condition I have never heard of before – Peyronie’s disease – just what is it, and what do we do to get rid of it?
  2. Is it life threatening?
  3. What do you mean, there is no known cause or Peyronies cure?
  4. In the early part of the 21st century, when even cancers are being cured, how is it possible that science has no help for this problem?
  5. Could it be that we have talked to a doctor who is lazy or incompetent: should we talk to someone else?
  6. Would we get better answers, and help, if we spent more money and went to a higher level specialist?
  7. How could this problem affect up to 9% of the male population, but I have never heard of it before?
  8. What do you mean, you do not know if it is going to get better or worse?

On and on the questions pour out, trying to make sense of a terrible situation.  But there are other questions that a woman must naturally ask in the privacy of her own self:

  1. I am sorry that he got injured during intercourse.  He knows I did not do it on purpose.  I feel so guilty when I see him suffering.  Is he holding all this against me?
  2. What about my sexual needs; what am I going to do now?
  3. I didn’t do anything wrong, why am I suffering too?
  4. Why is he being so quiet and secretive about this; why won’t he talk to me about this problem?  Doesn’t he realize It is affecting me, too?
  5. What is going on with him?  He is getting so moody and irritable that I am afraid to talk to him sometimes.
  6. I feel like there is a brick wall around him, and he is a hundred miles away.  Why won’t he talk to me?

Of course, there are all the sexual problems and sexual discussions that are so unique between couples.  These too, are a part of the problems associated with Peyronie’s disease treatment– sometimes minor and manageable, and sometimes so major that a couple can not sustain themselves together.  In these cases where I counsel couples, I find that most all of the time each couple has a problem communicating on a much deeper level necessary to truly understand each other to the degree needed in this time of special need.

Throughout all this time, during discussion and lack of discussion, the woman suffers in her own unique way.  There are no easy answers to any of this, but it is necessary that a woman be able to communicate with someone, express her fears and her needs, and learn she is not alone.  This section of the Peyronie’s Disease Treatment forum blog is intended for this purpose.

Please feel free to ask questions, post comments and replies to each other, so you may feel this is a place of understanding and comfort for you.

Peyronie's cure

No Known Peyronie’s Cure

As any reputable Peyronie’s disease website will tell you, there is no known Peyronies cause and no known Peyronie’s cure.  Any advertisement that tells you they have a Peyronies cure should cause you not to become hopeful, but very skeptical.

There are many large categories of products that are heavily promoted as a Peyronies cure.  There is even a book written about PD that claims it offers a Peyronie’s cure; when you read the book, you will learn it conveniently avoids making a claim for a cure even though a cure is mentioned in the title. In addition, if you Google the term “peyronies disease” you will always see a large column on the right-hand side, promoting any one and more of these products:

  1. Mechanical penis stretchers
  2. VED or Vacuum pump
  3. Herbal preparations
  4. Systemic enzymes

Since I am deeply committed to helping men solve the riddle of how to increase their ability to self-heal Peyronie’s disease, as happens naturally in 50% of PD cases, I look into all of these companies who make a claim for a Peyronies cure.

Peyronie’s cure companies do not like to communicate

For several years I have followed a policy of sending at least three emails to each and every company that claims to have a Peyronie’s cure.  In each case I will introduce myself as someone who helps people with PD, and I disclose the URL address for the Peyronie’s Disease Institute website so they will know I am sincere.  I ask each one a few pointed questions about their product and their claims.  I even tell them that if there products are as good as they claim, I would be pleased to offer that product on the PDI website.  In this way, you can see that anyone who actually had a great product would be more than happy to discuss their Peyronie’s cure with me.  I do this for the high-priced mechanical penis stretchers, VED makers, and all makers of pills and potions that fit this description.  To date, I have never received a response from any one of them.

Based on the total lack of response from these people to my repeated questions, I think it is fair to assume these folks are not what they claim to be.  If you read their limited background website information, you will see the claims are not supported by anything.  If they had something of substance to say, they would not hesitate to let me know.

I seem to notice that many of them are many of them make it difficult to know where they are located.  You can imagine the kind of service you would receive after they have your money, or if you want to ask them to honor their refund guarantee.

If anyone has a comment or experience they would like to relate concerning any of these products that are supposed to be a Peyronie’s cure, I know I and many others would like to learn of your direct experiences.

Peyronie's treatment, vitamin E, PABA and U.S. government

Vitamin E and PABA Used for Peyronie’s Treatment

Here is interesting vitamin E, PABA and Peyronie’s treatment information from the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse, an important arm of the prestigious National Institute of Health, found at http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov /Kudiseases/pubs/peyronie/index.htm

This information about  Peyronie’s treatment and vitamin E is not exactly new, because frankly, there is not much that is  new in the search for a Peyronies cure.  Even so, what makes this section worth reading is that it is interesting and immensely informative in a different way.  What is important to know about Peyronies treatment from a medical standpoint is not what is revealed, but what is not  mentioned about Peyronie’s treatment – in this case concerning the use of vitamin E.

This following paragraph is copied under the NIH’s discussion of “Experimental Peyronie’s Treatments”:

“Some researchers have given vitamin E orally to men with Peyronie’s disease in small-scale studies and have reported improvements. Yet, no controlled studies have established the effectiveness of vitamin E therapy. Similar inconclusive success has been attributed to oral application of para-aminobenzoate [PABA], a substance belonging to the family of B-complex molecules.”

It is important to know that this is as far as the discussion concerning the use of vitamin E and PABA goes in this government article.  It reports that “small-scale studies…have reported improvements. Yet, no controlled studies have established the effectiveness of vitamin E therapy.”   So, if there was some improvement noted when vitamin E and PABA were used in Peyronie’s treatment, exactly why have there been no additional controlled studies conducted to prove or disprove that these early initial positive reports were factual?  If it looked like these two experimental, but natural, non-drug Peyronie’s treatments were helpful, how can it be that no further testing has been done in this direction?

Isn’t the drug industry, or the AMA, or the government, or some private research group out there supposed to be interested in finding a Peyronie’s cure?   If some natural Peyronie’s therapy like PABA or vitamin E showed some initial promise, why has no one looked into it further?   If something comes along that is naturally occurring, easy and inexpensive to produce, safe to take compared to drugs, and readily available in the marketplace, and happens to look like it could help men with Peyronie’s disease, why has it not been investigated further?  Why, indeed!

Vitamin E as a Peyronie’s treatment, or not

The answer to this natural question is found in the second sentence, in which it is mentioned, “no controlled studies have established the effectiveness of vitamin E therapy.”  This means that without these additional higher-level controlled studies, the effectiveness of vitamin E and PABA remain conveniently unproven. Therefore, vitamin E and PABA remain only at the experimental forever.  Exactly where the drug industry wants them to remain.  So long as they continue to ignore vitamin E – to not give it a legitimate opportunity to prove or disprove it’s value to assist in Peyronie’s treatment – the medical community and the drug industry can correctly say it is “unproven.”   This keeps vitamin E, and PABA, and other Alternative Medicine therapies out in the cold, where they would like them to remain.

It appears that the drug industry does not want to know if Peyronie’s disease can be treated with vitamin E.  If it were known that vitamin E, or PABA, or the PDI treatment concept of synergistic use of multiple Alternative Medicine therapies, are actually effective Peyronie’s treatments, then the entire argument against their use would crumble.  No one has stepped forward to conduct controlled studies because of fear that vitamin E, or PABA, might actually help the body heal the Peyronies plaque.

So long as the necessary tests are withheld, it is perfectly honest and legitimate to say that these natural therapies are “not proven” by controlled research.  This is a great discussion stopper, isn’t it?  Yet, no one goes the next step to ask, “And, exactly why have these necessary controlled studies not been performed in view of the small-scale studies that indicated these simple measures were effective?  Why the delay?  Why the lack of interest?”

Well, I guess we all know, and it should not surprise anyone, that the answer is the importance of profit over humanitarian interests.  It is unfortunate but apparently true, since I have found no reasonable answer to explain why this testing has not been conducted.   You can assure that if small-scale testing of a new drug showed the same improvement, that vast sums of additional funding would be forthcoming for controlled studies.  In this way, once that new drug could be proved or disproved, its march to the marketplace and profitability would be hastened.

Lastly, if you think the use of vitamin E or PABA might not be a reasonable kind of therapy to use because they are “unproven,” now you understand that this state of being unproven is a convenient strategy of those who help themselves more than they want to help you.

Perhaps this will help you to understand, and feel differently about, the use of vitamin E, PABA, and the rest of the Peyronie’s Disease Institute program to treat this male scourge.   For more information about the use of vitamin E in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease, go to Vitamin E, and to learn about the use of PABA in the treatment of Peyronie’s disease, go to PABA.

This is why it is necessary for each man to look out for himself and become the master of his own Peyronie’s treatment, since there is no one as interested in your welfare as you – and the Peyronie’s Disease Institute.

Biggest Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Mistake You Can Make

Learn from others about Peyronie’s treatment

What’s the biggest fundamental mistake I see men make while undergoing conservative Peyronie’s treatment?  This is a good question, because if you are making this mistake it could be sabotaging your success right now.

Men with Peyronie’s disease say they want to recover.  They all say they will do anything to get their lives back in order again.  I hear it all the time.  Yet, when I suggest things to do, additional ideas or strategies that often make a difference, I get a different reply from these same men.

As we communicate, I often hear and see a lot of indecision and lack of commitment to getting well.  What I really see in my dealing with a wide variety of men is that they want to get over their Peyronie’s disease, if it is:
1.  Easy
2.  Fast
3.  Guaranteed
4.  Inexpensive
5.  Convenient

Of this list of five reservations, the one that always interests me the most is #3, the one requiring that any PDI treatment must be “guaranteed.”  I ask myself, “What in all of medicine can be realistically and honestly guaranteed?” and the answer is absolutely nothing.

I had some dental work the other day to extract a badly cracked tooth.  I asked the dentist if he thought he could get the entire tooth with roots out of the socket.  He said, “No, I can’t say that. I just don’t know ahead of time.  If that root breaks off, you will need a dental surgeon to have the jaw opened to remove that nasty little root.”  Did you ever notice that when you get some work done by your dentist, he asks you repeatedly how numb you are?  Your dentist does this because he/she has absolutely no way to guarantee the exact effectiveness of a simple Novocain shot. You must be asked continually how much numbness was created, and how much pain you are having, because something as simple and direct as a Novocaine shot represents an unknown outcome, with no guarantee.

I doubt you can find an MD alive who would guarantee that the high blood pressure prescription – or even an aspirin – he prescribes for you will work.  Since this is a Peyronie’s disease forum, I doubt you can find a surgeon alive who would guarantee before surgery that your curvature would be straightened, or that your Peyronie’s disease would not return in a few years.   No doctor guarantees any outcome of treatment for a specific tissue response because the body does not operate that way.

Yet, because of all these goofy advertisements that surround Peyronie’s disease, you and I are all bombarded with “guarantees” of how effective a secret herb from India is to “cure” the Peyronie’s plaque.  Especially bad are all the mechanical penis stretchers that “guarantee” to reverse a bent penis.  These mechanical penis stretcher companies are a great lot.  They come and they go.  They offer a simple solution, but from my observation and reports I get every day, most men simply cannot use these stretchers for more than a day or two before giving up because of the pain they cause.

One of the surest signs of a phony setup in Peyronie’s disease treatment is when you see a guarantee of results offered.  when it comes to guarantees, caveat emptor, buyer beware.

Sorry to say, nothing about ANY Peyronie’s disease treatment from any source is easy, fast, guaranteed, inexpensive or convenient.  It is tough work because Peyronie’s disease is one tough problem, and it is most stubborn to treat.  That is why there is no formal Peyronie’s cure at this time. The trick in treating Peyronie’s disease successfully is that it requires you to personally be more stubborn and tenacious than your problem.  It takes a made-up mind, with a high level of commitment to be successful over Peyronie’s disease.  If you truly have one of those determined minds and you are prepared to do some serious work to help yourself, you are far closer to success with your Peyronie’s disease treatment plan.

Must go all out to get Peyronie’s help

A half-hearted effort will get you nothing – I can guarantee you that!   You must approach your treatment plan knowing it will not be easy, and any good progress will take time and dedication.  Dig in for the long road, and you will avoid discouraging yourself.  On the other hand, you must also be realistic in your expectations concerning how long it will take to see results and your anticipated degree of eventual improvement.

You need to remember you are working to make yourself healthier and stronger so you can correct your own Peyronie’s disease problem, you are not looking in vain for a Peyronie’s cure.  It’s as simple as that.

If you are truly serious about correcting your Peyronie’s disease, you must be ready to commit to  work hard to strengthen your immune response.  Give your body the time and opportunity it needs to heal like the 50% group whose Peyronie’s disease corrects on its own.  Without true commitment and dedication to the task, it is almost impossible to succeed.

Largest Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Mistake

Do Peyronie’s treatment correctly for best results

What’s the biggest fundamental mistake I see men make while trying to treat their Peyronie’s disease?  This is a good question, because if you are making this mistake it could be sabotaging the success of your Peyronie’s disease treatment right now.

Their mistake is that they will only undergo an Alternative Medicine treatment of Peyronies if it is guaranteed.   They never stop to think or realize that no doctor in his right mind will guarantee any form of treatment, especially Peyronie’s disease.

Most men say they want to recover from their Peyronie’s disease.  They say they will do anything to get their lives back in order again.  I hear it all the time.  Yet, when I suggest things to do, such as additional ideas or strategies to follow that often make a difference, I get a different reply from these same men.

When we communicate, I often hear and see a lot of indecision and lack of commitment to getting well.  What I really see in my dealing with a wide variety of men is that they want to get over their Peyronie’s disease, but only if the therapy is:

5.  Convenient

I doubt you can find an MD alive who would guarantee that the high blood pressure prescription – or even an aspirin – he gives you will work.  Since this is a Peyronie’s disease forum, I doubt you can find a surgeon alive who would guarantee before surgery that your curvature would be straightened, or that your Peyronie’s disease would not return in a few years.   No doctor guarantees any outcome of treatment for a specific tissue response because the body does not operate that way.

Peyronie's Disease Treatment Philosophy – General Comments

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute treatment philosophy for dealing with Peyronie’s disease is not accepted within the medical community. You should know the PDI opinions and Peyronie’s disease treatment philosophy are not current mainstream medical thinking, although PDI has assisted a dozen or more MDs with their Peyronies problem in the last few years.

The Peyronie’s Disease Institute philosophy for Peyronie’s treatment is different from standard medical thinking in two fundamental ways.

1. PDI recommends using mainstream Alternative Medicine therapy products (vitamin E, copper copper, DMSO, enzymes, etc.), and procedures like a special gentle manual penis stretching technique we have developed, and acupuncture). These are recommended even though they have not fulfilled the testing standards usually required of medication.

2. PDI has found after seven years of review and research that taking multiple therapies, all at the same time, in sufficient quantities as described on its website that it often stimulates or supports some degree of improved ability to heal and repair the famous Peyronie’s plaque or scar. The scientific term for this phenomenon is “synergy”.

The specific therapy products used by PDI are well known and generally accepted as important, and often essential, for health and well being, such as vitamin E, MSM, acetyl-L-carnitine, etc. However, what is unique is that PDI advocates these therapy products are used in combination and in significant number for maximum potential effect and benefit. This synergistic concept of therapy used by PDI to treat PD takes advantage of the affect of synergy – a concept that is very well known in medical practice. Synergy is the ability of two or more substances to work together to produce a total effect greater than what each individual therapy could produce by itself. 

This Peyronie’s disease treatment concept is based on simple observations about this problem:

· Why do some men completely recover from Peyronie’s disease without treatment? You know, this happens in about half of the case.

· Why do some men get worse and need surgery, no matter what treatment they try?

· If the Peyronie’s plaque is similar to scars like I have on other parts of my body, why does it seem to change so much – not only the size, shape, and density of the scar, but also the location?

· If it’s actually the same problem among all the men who have it, why does Peyronies vary so much from one man to the next?

· What’s the difference between the two groups of men whose Peyronie’s disease goes away on its own, and the other in which it only gets worse no matter what they do for it?

· What is the fundamental difference between these two groups of different responses?

· How can I join the group that repairs and eliminates the Peyronie’s plaque and reverses the bent penis of PD?

Certainly , no one has complete or easy answers to this questions – yet. However, I think it makes perfect sense that the man whose Peyronie’s disease simply goes away on its own has a better healing capacity, than another man whose PD never improves. It cannot be a mater of luck; nature is just not that way. It is my opinion that you can increase your healing capacity and become healthier in some yet undetermined way so you are able to heal your Peyronie’s scar and reverse your Peyronie’s bend to the best of your ability.

The fact that some men are able to recover better than others, must mean there is variable − not static − capacity to healing and repair among men. Common sense and generally accepted knowledge about health, nutrition, and the healing process offers you and I the foundation for a treatment concept and philosophy that should improve your chances to recover from Peyronie’s disease better than if you did nothing to enhance your ability to heal. It is really as simple and direct as that.  The Peyronie’s plaque found within and on the tunica albuginea can be seen as an expression or extension of the overall health and healing potential of the body in which it occurs. Similar to an ulcer, a Peyronie’s plaque or scar can be thought of as the result of abnormal body chemistry and physiology. As such, treatment of Peyronie’s disease should attempt to improve that distressed or abnormal chemistry and physiology of the penile tissue in which the plaque is found.

All therapy products, nutrients, techniques and ideas presented by PDI are all directly or indirectly intended to improve the chemistry and physiology of the body in general and plaque elimination in the tunica specifically. The end result of this effort should be a healthier person with healthier tissue that can heal better. That is the reason all Peyronie’s therapy items are selected on the basis of their potential to improve or normalize the chemistry and physiology of the tunica of the penis and the foreign plaque material.

This Peyronie’s treatment philosophy is not offered as though we have an absolute Peyronie’s cure, not at all.   While we have a high success rate, it is not an absolute cure in that sense. It is merely presented as a way to treat the man who has Peyronie’s disease, because  we all know this happens in 50% of the cases – so it can be done, and it is being done.  PDI is merely offering a way to increase your potential to join the ranks of the men whose Peyronie’s plaque is healed naturally.  The only difference is that you are doing specific things in a deliberate and methodical manner to heal yourself better than you did the first time around.

Peyronie’s Disease Institute adopts the judgment of Mayo Clinic concerning Peyronie’s disease when it stated. ”early stage disease [of Peyronie’s disease] is reputed to respond better than well-established plaques, an early trial of inexpensive, safe and well-tolerated oral therapy is often initially recommended. … With advances in the molecular biology of inflammation and wound healing, the management and understanding of this frustrating disease will no doubt improve.”

With this statement in mind, I strongly recommend that any man, in any stage of Peyronie’s disease – no matter how chronic or advanced – should at least investigate the use of synergy created by the combination of several simultaneous non-invasive treatment measures selected on the basis of the best understanding of your problem and the information that is available to you. Peyronie’s disease treatment is variable from one man to the next. Because the Alternative Medicine therapies used in Peyronie’s disease treatment are intended not to treat the disease but to support and strengthen the man who has the problem, so he can heal and repair it to the best of his ability.  Since we are all different, each man must approach his own search for a Peyronies cure on an individual basis.

When you look at the different therapy products on PDI website, realize that they are intended to increase your ability to heal and repair PD, just as it naturally and spontaneously happens in 50% of the men who develop this condition.   Keeping this in mind should change the way you look not only at Peyronie’s disease, but also the way that you consider your relationship to the problem and how you hope to eventually overcome it.

Peyronie’s Disease Treatment Guarantee

Proven Peyronie’s cures and other nonsense

Every month or so I receive an email from someone who wants to know if there is a guarantee for our Peyronie’s disease treatment ideas.   The email usually goes on to say that he sees “PD cures” guaranteed when he does a Goggle search.

Boy, do I love getting those questions emailed to me!  This gives me a great opportunity to explain our Peyronie’s treatment philosophy.

Here are a few points that every one should consider when they see an advertisement for a “proven Peyronies cure” that mentions a guarantee:

  1. Who are these people who can offer such a guarantee? I have attempted to communicate with every one of these herbal companies or penis stretching companies to ask a few questions about their guaranteed  products. It seems to me that any company that can put a real honest-to-goodness money-back guarantee on a product must either have great confidence in the ability of that product, or they have no intention of returning your money because they will not actually honor their guarantee. Yet, when I try to contact these people who guarantee their Peyronie’s disease treatments, none of them has ever replied to my questions before buying their product.  Since they have proven to be unavailable before making a purchase, can you image the kind of service or chance of them honoring their guarantee after they have my money?  I have found that very often these companies operate outside the U.S., making it very difficult to contact them or take action against them if it ever became necessary.  Caveat emptor, “buyer beware.”
  2. Who gives a guarantee in health care? No one, actually.  Even a dentist who does a fairly simple and direct dental procedure, or someone who fits you for glasses or a hearing aid, or prescribes common aspirin, will never offer a guarantee.  Surgeons and lawyers and architects do not give guarantees, yet the person who has a secret herb for PD will give a guarantee.  This should make someone with Peyronie’s disease a little suspicious.
  3. What does it mean that Peyronie’s Disease Institute does not give a guarantee for its treatment procedures? Does it mean that the procedures do not work, or that it is an acknowledgment of the difficulty and complexity of the process of recovery from Peyronie’s disease?  Since of all the men who follow an Alternative Medicine treatment plan for Peyronie’s disease, no two will go about it the same way.  All men seem use a different treatment approach.  Besides different combinations of therapies, each man eventually settles on different dosages of each.  If that were not enough difference in PD treatment plans, I also know that some men are less faithful and accurate in their use of their therapy plans.  I even communicate with some men who say that after a few months of being on a large plan, they have not gotten around to using all of the 12 different therapies in their original order.  Can you imagine that?  Therapies they ordered, paid for and received, are still not being used after a few months.  They contact me for advice how to improve their treatment results. Of course, I tell them to open the box and use all of their therapies, and to use them faithfully and correctly.Also, I communicate with men who try to use their therapies, but they misunderstand the treatment concepts. The first mistake they often seem to make is to not read the detailed instructions that come with each order sent by PDI.  They might take their enzymes with their meals, instead of between meals, or they will take vitamins and minerals between meals, instead of with meals.  Sometimes they say they are too busy and cannot remember to use their therapy plan; for a few days or a week at a time, no Peyronie’s disease treatment takes place.  Then I get an email asking for advice when “the therapy plan is not working.”

For all these reasons, a guarantee of results cannot be offered since the plans differ with each man in so many ways, and I find that so many people do not do what they are supposed to do to recover from their Peyronie’s disease.

The next time you read about a company offering a Peyronie’s disease treatment guarantee, please think about these things.
