Hi

So to start my interest is in alternative treatments

Peyronies Disease started about 8 years ago. It was a curvature just behind the head of the penis pointing upward. I called it an upgrade as it didn't cause any issues and it was a bit of a turn on for my GF. it did not progress any further.

Recently a second curve developed - to the left and about 15 degrees with no pain but I am concerned about further issues.

I started using castor oil and  acetyl l carnitine supplements. I am looking for feedback. Has anyone found this treatment effective...either or both?

I am 64, very fit and not on any meds - hence my desire to stay that way!!!

I'd consider pentox (or CoQ10 if only want supplements), low dose daily cialis (pretty harmless  Rx)and traction/VED to prevent progression.

Thanks for the tips.

What is the logic behind low dose cialis? Blood flow to repair scarring?

It's been found to promote not only blood flow but remodeling of the plaque to healthy tissue.
