Natural Cures for Peyronie's Disease
Natural cures for Peyronie's disease are currently being offered as a way to treat this condition. However, none of the treatments marketed as "natural cures for Peyronie's disease" -- such as vitamin E and para-aminobenzoate -- have proven effective in large-scale, controlled research studies.
There is no cure for Peyronie's disease, which means there are no natural cures for Peyronie's disease either. In addition, Peyronie's is a difficult condition to treat.
No strong evidence shows that any Peyronie's treatment option other than surgery is effective. Experts usually recommend surgery only in long-term cases in which Peyronie's disease is stabilized and the deformity prevents intercourse.
Because the course of Peyronie's disease is different in each man, and because some men improve without utilizing any of the Peyronie's disease treatment options currently available, medical experts suggest waiting 1 to 2 years or longer before attempting to correct it surgically.
During that waiting period, men with the condition often are willing to undergo experimental Peyronie's disease treatment whose effectiveness has not been proven. Some of these treatments are marketed as "natural cures for Peyronie's disease."
In some small-scale studies, researchers have given oral doses of vitamin E to men with Peyronie's disease and have reported improvements. However, no controlled studies have established the effectiveness of vitamin E therapy as a standard treatment for Peyronie's disease.
Similar inconclusive success has been attributed to the oral use of para-aminobenzoate, a substance belonging to the family of B-complex molecules.
