Welcome to our little exclusive club! (We should be so fortunate to qualify, right?) I just want to pass on a few thoughts. I am taking a humongous number of supplements. You don't even want to know how many. Of all of them, I, personally, have gotten the best results from Broad Spectrum E, Horny Goat Weed, Maca and SAN VasoFlow. Those are the ones that have given me what I consider obvious quantifiable results in terms of Peyronies. But I also take a lot of supplements just because there is research out there that indicates they MIGHT be helpful.
However, at this point, I am really doing better in terms of Peyronies than ever since I have had the problem. I am doing great both psychologically and physiologically. I am even beginning to sense some possible improvement on the deformity front as if the fibrotic tissue itself is softening some. The palpable plaques have shrunk to almost nothing and the next battle is going to be to deal with the deformity itself. And what has helped me most in getting to this point is not just the supplements, but the diet and exercise process that is helping me knock down Metabolic Syndrome X. I am also taking supplements to attack the Metabolic Syndrome and am convinced that that is positively helping me with the Peyronies. Over and over in the past I have tried to lose weight. Only recently have I discovered how to lose weight effortlessly (at least for me). And I know that losing weight and getting my blood glucose levels down, down, down is doing great things in terms of my Peyronies problem. I suspect it would be even more helpful for an ED
The big thing in achieving the weight loss is diet and exercise. For diet guidance I recommend the book "YOU on a Diet" by Oz and Roizen published by Free Press. This is a VERY non-traditional diet book that focuses on educating you on what effect various food products have on your metabolism. Once you internalize this information, you can pretty much guarantee yourself weight loss from the moment you set foot in the grocery store to do your food shopping. It is not how many calories you consume, but WHAT you put in your fridge that will ultimately determine your waist size. And my experience is that getting your waist size down can cause a HUGE positive impact on your health in general. You will feel better, look better, have more energy, the benefits I have experienced have been huge. They also talk about exercise. In my case, I hang out a lot at bodybuilding.com and pick up a lot of tips there. They (bodybuilding.com) also have good tips on weight loss supplements.
About a year ago I purchased a high quality treadmill. It was one of the best purchases of my life. I hear that ellipticals are also good. Most of my exercise has been twenty minutes two times per day on that treadmill, usually a cardio program in the morning and an interval program at night. In my case I have gone from difficult to control hypertension on three prescription meds to perfectly normal blood pressure with no meds in a matter of months.
I also take some supps to help with the weight loss. They are Forskolin, Flax Oil, Fish Oil, Sesamin, CLA, ALC
, Bacopa (to address adrenal issues) and Valerian formulas to address adrenal issues via CNS depression. I also am making sure I get Grapeseed Oil, Canola Oil, Olive Oil and Sesame Oil in my diet (I mix them myself, 3 parts Grapeseed, 1 part Canola, and a bit of Olive and Sesame). I am planning to add ALA for insulin sensitivity and Tongkat Ali to try to tweak up my Testosterone levels. Also some additional stuff to work on my insulin sensitivity a bit further. The big hitters on the diet side are Fats, Sugars, Flours and Starches. Fats are extremely important. Getting the right amounts of the right fats can HELP you to lose weight. But use moderation with saturated fats and corn based fats and get trans fats out of your life 100%. The natural sweetness of fruits is good for you and will help you with your weight loss project, but refined sugars of all sorts are bad news. Also beware of no-calorie alternative sweeteners. ALL except the fiber based ones will make you fat regardless of what the 'experts' claim. And as much as possible you need to get flours and starches out of your diet in all of their forms. Ezekiel bread is the only bread option I have found that is really helpful in achieving weight loss. And the only starchy food I will touch are Sweet Potatoes IN MODERATION. Once you get the right combination together, your appetite will diminish and the pounds will fall off. There are extremely few people who need to resort to surgery. The book also discusses this angle. The authors indicate that they only advise it for the "morbidly obese".
I wish you the best!
