Men can suffer from a variety of diseases in their lifetime, but one of the worst when it comes to sexual function is Peyronies disease. This can have a big impact on self-esteem as well as the relationship. There is a range of chemical and natural cures for Peyronies disease and in order to make the right choice it is important to better understand the disease.
What is Peyronies disease?
The disease itself involves the formation of fibrous plaques on the inside layer of the penis. This results in impaired blood flow to the affected side, and an accumulation of blood into the unaffected tissue, leading to curvature. This can be painful and can often lead to impotence. The disease affects more than 0.4% of men from all over the world. Anyone man over the age of 18 can develop the disease, but the most affected are those over the age of 50.
There is a range of treatment options available for men with this disease, from the natural to the medical. If you aren’t keen on taking medication, having electroshock therapy or having surgery then the natural alternative is best for you. This is especially important if you don’t want lots of chemicals floating around in your blood and causing all sorts of side effects
Natural treatment options
Men all over the world are looking for natural cures for Peyronies disease but the truth is that it is hard to find. Luckily, a small proportion of men who have the disease recover without having been treated at all. Their symptoms resolve and they can go on with life as if nothing happened. Unfortunately for the majority of men with this disease need some sort of intervention in order to treat the disease.
The aim of natural methods is to help relieve the symptoms that come with the disease. It does this by reducing the curvature of the penis, allowing blood to flow more evenly to both the affected and unaffected tissues. This will help to keep you sexually active without having to experience any pain.
In some cases, the psychological impact of not being able to perform adequately can perpetuate weak erections. As a result, it is recommended that you see a psychologist so that you can work through any issues that may arise within yourself or within the relationship between you and your partner.
When natural cures fail
If treatment has not been successful after a year then your doctor will tell you to return. You will then be faced with the option of further treatment. This can range from the simple to the more invasive procedures. You will generally be started off on oral medication and monitored to see if any progress has taken place. The next step would be the injection of drugs or fluid. Then there is electroshock therapy and radiation therapy. Surgery is generally the last resort and is reserved for patients whose symptoms do not improve over a year, or do not regress over the preceding three months following alternative treatment methods.
