Peyronie's Disease - Editor's Choice

Over the years, Earth Clinic readers have sent us many reports about their treatments for Peyronie's Disease. The editors at Earth Clinic consider the below posts to be some of the most helpful and informative and have named them 'Editor's Choice'. We hope that you will find this useful.

Enzyme Therapy

Serrapeptase, a protease enzyme, can cure Peyronie's disease. It does this by dissolving the scar tissue. This was an accidental discovery. I took Serrapeptase to remove plaque from my carotid arteries which were 40 percent blocked. Not only did it clear the carotids, but my Peyronie problems disappeared, too! I don't think it was spontaneous. A childhood scar that I had on my leg practically disappeared, as well. More recently, I had a deep cut on my forefinger that required 5 stitches. That scar has virtually disappeared, too.

Plaque is held together by fibrin, which is a protein. Serrapeptase dissolves that protein. Blood clots are also held together by fibrin. After clearing up these problems, I continue to take Serrapeptase as a "longevity pill", because blood clots are what cause heart attack and strokes. Blood clots can also be produced by so-called sticky platelets. Ordinary aspirin takes care of that and is often prescribed following a heart attack or stroke.

A single 120,000 SPU daily capsule of Serrapeptase, plus 81 mg of aspirin, does the trick. Doctor's Best brand of Serapeptase is one such source.

Caution: Serrapeptase MUST be taken on an empty stomach -- not having eaten for several hours -- in order to be effective. Serrapeptase is an enzyme, not a drug, and there are no side effects other than possible diarrhea if you take too much. For some people, 40,000 SPU daily (low dose) is all that can be tolerated.

Slow digestion, acid reflux or other digestive issues can spoil the uptake of Serrapeptase. So it may not work for everyone. The problem is not Serrapeptase. It's the blocked uptake. Then again, everyone's body chemistry is different. There are no guarantees. But enzyme therapy, which is widely used in the Orient, is worth a try.


Castor Oil

Novel treatment for Peyronies Disease:

Hi, My husband had been struggling with quite severe curvature and indentation of his penis for over a year. We researched all over the internet looking for treatment, relief and hope. All we found at that time were expensive oral treatments, surgery (ouch) or traction devices.

Then we discovered the benefits of using castor oil, topically (that is, rubbing it on the skin) to dissolve scar tissue and ease the pain of arthritic joints - mine. We wondered if castor oil would also work on plaque - which is also described as scar tissue.

My husband had two rather large areas of plaque in the penile shaft which were causing him pain and distress. Knowing that castor oil can do little harm topically, my husband decided to try it. So, for several weeks, before sleep, he massaged castor oil into the areas where he could feel the plaque. He also would apply a cotton bandage to keep heat and pressure on the area overnight.

Within a couple of weeks he started to notice improvement. The indentation lessened. The curvature reduced and he could physically feel the size of the two areas of plaque reducing.

He has continued to use the castor oil 3 or 4 times a week. The scar tissue that he could feel is almost gone, his penis is now almost straight and not indented. The pain is almost completely gone. He is carrying on using the castor oil and we are seeing continued improvement, week by week.

Before you spend a lot of money on proprietary compounds or consider something as drastic as surgery, which may result in having to use a prosthesis to obtain an erection, I would suggest that you invest $5 or so in a bottle of castor oil and try it.

Do some research into the healing properties of castor oil to see why it is so effective. Give it a few weeks and see if it helps you too.

This is not an overnight cure. It will take time, but I would suggest it is well worth trying.

A couple of helpful hints. Cover yourself with a towel or an old pair of pyjamas for sleeping. The oil may well stain your bedclothes.

Make sure that you can get into the bathroom to wash when your hands are oily - finding yourself with oily hands and being unable to open either the bedroom or bathroom doors is a little embarrassing.
