I had peyronie's for about two years and it is now cured probably 100%
i am quite sure it cured because of intermittent fasting ( after over 8 months of normal intermittent fasting ).
i am 60 years old and i am convinced it is not easy to cure and even less at this age.
i am quite sure that now the skin of the forehead ( foreskin ) is rosier then ever ( in my memory ), so irrigated with blood.
The same for the head of my penis ( glans ) is more irrigated with blood and larger then before the peyronie's started ( when not in erection ).

it was not one of the most severe cases, but is was enough to cause a lot of pain for many months ( even without erection )

i read quite a lot and it makes sense that the intermittent fasting is the reason of the cure.

i finished a water fast of 7 days almost 2 months ago.

But i am quite sure it was solved before that because of the intermittent fasting.
Since i did not wrote it down i am not 100 % sure (but about 99 % sure).
i did a 3 day water fast before but it did not make it cure ( it is really a matter of time at least in my case )
Do not do a many day waterfast without doing first intermittent fasting ( unless you are very young )
remember that fasting while you have diabetes or insulin deficiency can be very dangerous.
in doubt stop the fasting or intermittent fasting until you are sure about not having that.

i tried a few things before and during the intermittent fasting but not long term as i did not feel very secure about it
let us say results took too long and i had not enough discipline and fate to do them long enough ( with the exception of the intermittent fasting ).

i did some jelqing and i believe it can help for some, but i also think it can hurt as well and if your underlying problem is not solved jelcking probably does not solve.
i did do some jelging with coconut oil relatively close to an infrared lamp ( do not burn yourself and increase time and decrease distance gradually ).
it seemed promising ( it irrigates the penis even a while after you finish ) but i did not do it long enough and i think it is not the reason of my cure.

intermittent fasting or fasting or ketogenic diet is not easy but i did it for general health reasons
not really for the peyronie's
i hoped to cure the peyronie's as well

but since it took months i stopped expecting it.

if the intermittent fasting it is hard for you to do
think that it is for your health and mental resistance.

i am very convinced it causes regeneration in general ( literature confirms ).

it also decreased my not so severe essential tremor starting after about one month.

it started to made my white beard and pubic hear turn black again (now about 40-60%) long before the peyronie's cured.
But this only happens very gradual

do not expect fasting or intermittent fasting or ketogenic diet make you see results in a few weeks

( a young person could FEEL a difference in a matter of days, older persons have to count with weeks of months )
But for SEEING a difference better count with months of even better do not expect it.

if you try intermittent fasting or ketogenic diet ( or a combination )
look for and avoid mistakes you can make.
one of the mistakes is (in the case of ketogenic diet)  if you use more than 20 % meat ( proteins ) your body will turn it in glucose
if you measure your glucose do not expect it to fall close to zero ( even if you do not use carbohydrates, sugar, frutose or lactose ).
even after 7 days of water fasting ( no oil, no juices, no nothing ) glucose did not drop below 54 mg/dL ( in my case )
during intermittent fasting it only dropped to 69 mg/dl

i mention this because i expected it to drop more.

Joao, thanks for the detailed post.

Glucose dysregulation is at the root of aging (through glycosis and ROS) and parkinson's and neurological diseases, so it makes sense that your tremor got better. I'm really happy to hear about your success.

Fasting or keto also fixes your body's own endogenous antioxidant system (antioxidants made within the body, such as CoQ10, Glutathione, and SOD).
Instead of taking CoQ10 and rubbing SOD cream on your penis, get rid of insulin resistance and let your body work how it was supposed to. I go into this a bit in my new video: https://youtu.be/7KLlVU0H1Yw?t=1035

Insulin resistance also LOWERS nitric oxide and damages the lymph system and your entire body.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/30025187/

Also, insulin resistance causes "sticky blood," which is so often cited as being correlated with Peyronie's.
I will update the original post and flesh it out with studies soon.

Keep up the good work man!

I'm confused about the role of diet in stabilizing/eliminating the disease. According to this article, a low cholesterol diet could be effective in preventing plaque build-up. This is used to treat plaque build-up in the arteries. It's pretty frustrating having so much conflicting info.

That is vegan (sugar industry in disguise) PROPOGANDA.
They spend millions to maintain websites like that and nutritionfacts.
Dietary cholesterol does not cause blood cholesterol to raise at all, that is well established.

LOW cholesterol causes Peyronie's, because it is closely related to CoQ10 and vitamin D. Statins lower cholesterol and CAUSE Peyronie's.

Heart disease is caused by carbohydrates and very low density LDL, which is caused by high blood sugar. This is also known as remnant cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is the weakest indicator of atherosclerosis. You need to look at your triglyceride to HDL ratio. High triglycerides are caused by a high carbohydrate diet. If your body cannot use lipids due to carbohydrate dependancy, you have insulin resistance and fats will have nowhere to go. They sit around and become very small density LDL, but this is not a result of eating fat or cholesterol. Saturated fats increase cholesterol but this is not a bad thing. Read in depth about statins and cholesterol. We have all been lied to since the 1950s and Ancel Key's "heart hypothesis" which was based on the Seven Country Study, a deeply biased and laughable study. Keys was a bully and we are all suffering the effects of that study and industry funded research to this day.

All of this said, DO NOT combine carbohydrates with fats. You need to alter your gut biome and mitochondrial DNA by consuming fats and no carbs. Until your body learns how to properly use lipids, you are in a dangerous spot and can surely get heart disease.

Heart disease is caused by insulin resistance and diabetes.

If you are vegan, you can do keto vegan too.

Hey Neo,
I too am on a meat based Keto diet, for almost 6 months now.  That said,  I just don’t understand folks on the anti-vegan wagon...calling it propaganda.  I know they can come across strong, but given the treatment of animals in the industrial food complex that’s understandable.  Plus, like you said one can eat a healthy vegan keto diet as well.

i have been vegan since 19 to 24 yo roughly when disease first came. Just wanted to put my testament.

I still think vegan diet is feasible and if done right more healthy, i know nothing on other stuff.  My parents stayed on keto-diet for a summer 10 years ago, they nearly destroyed their livers and kidneys, my mother turned into an old lady with low density bones...

Hey Neo and others,
I posted here after i got better from Peyronie's ( but from other health problems as well )
because i red forums as well while i had Peyronie's.
I mean i think i had to do this posting at least once.
Reading forums was confusing but it still helps because the articles give you hope and allow you to fight for your health.
It is a struggle when you have Peyronie's or probably more when you have tremor or even essencial tremor ( considered not treathening ).
I do not remember having found a forum as interesting or as good as this one.
So i am glad to end up in this one ( and reading it, i just intended to post and then leave ).

I saw your youtube video and think you are right.
Your voice was not very loud ( that could be because here i hear the waves of the ocean in the background ).
I red a lot about intermittent fasting ( IF ) and ketogenic diet and of course about getting in ketosis.
And it not easy either.

I did not measure ketone bodies (but i did measure glucose).
I think doing it can help but i think it probably will make things even more confusing.
If you do do not draw conclusions too soon you can or should do it off course.

I give a few examples * why it can confuse you even more.

After the 7 day water fasting i started to eat more carbohydrates than i did before ( when i did a combination of keto and IF )
because maybe i had to catch up ( that is what i think ) for the regeneration to take place.
you can do IF and keto forever if you want but you cannot do long term water fasting forever.
My main goal was to cause regeneration and especially neurogenesis ( especially neurogenesis takes 6 months to mature 1/3 of the new neurons ).
And that is what i think happened.

That is also why i gave importance to gray hair turning black again.
stemcells of hair and stemcells for neurons come from the same place ( originally the neural tube )
to some extent they can migrate.
They can migrate in your brain ( it is easy to find info about that ).
Maybe they can migrate between hair and brain ( that is what scientists do and it works. They collect stem cells from your brain and inject them in your brain or in your body with the intention to reach your brain ).
If this is true then these stemcell could migrate to your penis.
I am afraid it is not the highest priority for the stemcells in your facial hair.
Stem cells from your pubic hair make a better chance.
That is why i mentioned the pubic hair turning black ( the ones that turned black are more black then the ones that stayed black )

I sidetracked and did not give one example yet.
Here comes the example.
*
so after starting eating carbohydrates etc after the 7 day water fasting.
glucose shot up to 160
to go down to 100 only the next day
to go back to normal for me ( less then 100 ) while i do mild IF now.
I did not panic when it shot up only because i new in before about this happening in such a case ( I HAD RED ABOUT IT ).

If i had not known about it i would have panicked and think that i had messed it all up ( that i had done something wrong and caused diabetes )
I think the body or delays to make larger amounts or insulin again or it happens on purpose to rack up the deposits all over the bodies.
When i take in more carbohydrates / glucose i feel the blood pressure going up ( i do not really need to measure ).
Just to say it is no mathematic, it is not 1+1.
I have no diabetes and never had ( or knew about it ) ( in fact i think i got it but did not want to measure and just started with fasting and IF ).
When as a side effect the Peyronie's cured, the tremor got better and better and my hear turned more and more black ( still not over 40-60 % as i think it is not the upper priority of the body ).

The other example i wanted to give is that i think that measuring your ketone bodies can confuse even more than measuring glucose.

Because i think that ketone bodies going up shows your that you are burning fat ( that you got in ketosis ).
But also that you are not using all of it.
So just to say that i think them going up is a good sign, but them not going up could be even better because you could be in ketosis and your body able to use all of it. It can do so only when it is metabolically very healthy already ( the mitochondria ).

Thanks Neo and others for all the feedback that you already gave.

I did not use anything other topic than coconut oil.
I did not use cialis, vitamins or anything else.
not internal nor external.
I did not spend money, i just saved money and time ( except for the studying )

I think the IF + keto > ketosis did the job(s)

while i think IF is the main key
for me keto makes IF easier ( but keto is good on its own. keto on its own for me is more dificult than IF )
and IF makes long term fasting easier or even possible ( is necessary to do it in a healthy way )
If you do make mistakes, long term fasting could cause damage ( especially if one is diabetic )

If i did confuse you with too much information
then just remember this.
start intermittent fasting, do not start with more then 12 hours a day.

do that for about 3 weeks and then take your next step ( inform you beter or go slowly ( weeks or months ) in the direction of 18 hours IF a day if possible )

Joao

I did not red other therapies this time.
I am sure they are very interesting and can work, but this way (ketosis) is the most complete and sustainable.
Probably one of the most dificult, at least at first sight.
As always there are some risks if you are not well prepared.
If in doubt return to normal or check a doctor.

Thanks again for all the info Joao.
Intermittent fasting is an amazing tool to beat insulin resistance! Dr. Jason Fung has a lot of books, research, and YouTube videos on this.

To others, yes veganism by itself is a great cause. But the sugar industry pays vegan doctors or supporters as well as funds websites that blatantly lie and harm people. Veganism is fine, and yes keto can be vegan.

Bone density is fine on keto, and only got worse in children with epilepsy due to their medication and low protein intake.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24800673
"Our data suggest that maintaining a KD for more than 5 y does not pose any major negative effects on body composition, bone mineral content, and bone mineral density in adults with GLUT-1 DS, a finding that is at variance with previous reports focusing on children with intractable epilepsy."

Low carb diets have no effect on kidneys
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/29904998/

High protein seems to be fine for kidneys as well.

Protein does get converted into glucose but at a very slow rate. Protein is definitely important, but going absolutely no protein or low may be necessary for treating severe insulin resistance. For me, too much protein definitely can give me a bit of nerve pain, but not much.

I have just started supplementing with Gelatin powder for its 'anti-stress' benefits, particularly the Glycine and Proline content, helps with Cortisol overload, Cortisol = stress. I believe it will also help after cardio exercise and with sleep  :)

Diabetes and Gelatin are mentioned (for those interested) here Gelatin, stress, longevity

So though I treated my size loss and erectile dysfunction effectively with traction and heat, the dents/hourglassing still remained.

I have been on a carnivore diet for nearly 3 months now, essentially grassfed pieces of steer (beef, fat, gristle, liver if I can stomach it) and canned sardines, drinking only water. I have also been periodically doing 48 hour water fasts. Dents are slowly disappearing. I am very very very very surprised by this, I have had those dents since 2010. 

Fasting previous to carnivore diet, had no discernible effect. Previous to this I was eating a paleo style diet, no wheat, dairy, added sugar, legumes etc.

I am thinking of starting the Carnivore Diet. Are you still having improvements?  I have moderate Peyronies and was wondering if the diet could help.

I have had no chance to fast again (too much going on in business world) but previous improvements have remained. I am 100% certain diet can help.

If any of you know Jordan Peterson, his daughter Mikhaila has terrible arthritis throughout her entire body and got a hip and ankle replacement at 17. After experimenting she found that a carnivore diet cures her of all symptoms. Here is a clip of her explaining what she went through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fncJdVjy5U

Overall, I feel like diet/fasting is the icing on the cake of our Peyronie's treatment regimens; very promising.

Yeah the idea with that is it is the ultimate elimination diet. Remove everything except beef, salt and water for a month, then slowly add things back in one at a time.

Does anyone know at what point autophagy sets in? Apparently it is after about 16 hours with it peaking shortly after and falling off after 2 days. Apparently it can also coincide with ketosis; one doesn't need to run through their fat stores for it to begin. I am also hearing, separately, that if one water fasts they should expect to see the autophagy occuring after 11 days depending on fat stores? I'm not sure which to believe.

Research it. Get on pubmed, google etc and dig up the most reliable sources you can. It's an important question and putting some time into finding a good answer would be well worth your while.

@crooked_stick, the problem I have with that article is that they are selling something, that specific power/supplement thing. Have you checked the references they link to?

JS and Skunkworks, I'm really glad you both made me look into carnivore.

I've been keto for a year and 3 months or so, maybe longer, but I notice my issues get MUCH better when I go lower carb. I have 4 eggs a day, cheese, and meat with some veggies such as broccoli (for that mystostatin inhibition and anti-cancer effect). However, I am now foregoing even veggies and really going carnivore. I'm really enjoying it and I feel amazing. Thanks so much for turning me on to this.

I am also doing more rigorous traction starting today and getting on a schedule. Although my symptoms are not problematic anymore, I'm curious just how far I can push this. I have a feeling I can get much more improvement.

Hey guys,

Just stumbled yesterday on an article which stated that food additives significantly increased glucose sensitivity, microbiota negative modifications, inflammatory diseases (metabolic syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome...), diabetes, Crohn's, and obesity.

I can't find the primary sources, but this comes from a very reliable French site (National institute of consuming) which bases its claims on studies published in Nature, etc (https://www.60millions-mag.com/2015/06/12/mefiez-vous-des-additifs-alimentaires-8003).

Sorry if this question had already been treated (I imagine it has), but for me it was quite a discovery... And now I realize how much additives I thought to be innocuous (sucralose, cellulose gum...) are absolutely everywhere, even for me who has a really good diet  :o... Damn

Neo, I'm glad it's working for you. I know you know this, but please be careful with traction. You seem to be in a pretty good place in terms of your Peyronie's and it would be sad to see you injure yourself.

Gabriel, Always try to consume all natural foods! Especially with Peyronie's disease. It goes hand in hand with the diet and fasting we're discussing.
