A Natural Remedy for Peyronie's Disease That Works!

(Pensacola, Florida)


QUESTION:

Are there any natural remedies for the plaque build-up in the penis shaft known as Peyronie's Disease?



ANSWER:

Hi Roy, and thanks for your question regarding natural remedies for peyronie's disease.

For those who don't know, Peyronie’s disease (also known as curvature of the penis) is the abnormal bending of the penis during an erection. This occurs due to the formation of fibrous tissue under the skin. Peyronie's disease is relatively uncommon and usually affects men over the age of 40. It causes acute pain and the shortening of the penis during intercourse. Conventional treatments include medications, radiation and surgery (radiation causes cancer and surgery causes erectile dysfunction). None of these options are any good. On the other hand, certain natural remedies and supplements can definitely help.

Here's 3 of the best...


#1. Castor Oil: Castor oil is a terrific natural remedy for Peyronie's disease. When applied topically to the penis, particularly the plaque spots and scar tissue, it helps to dissolve and soften the hard tissue. It definitely works well and works for all sufferers. Of course, some guys receive more benefit than others but the improvement will be noticeable regardless. You do need to be patient with this remedy though as it can take up to 12 weeks to completely straighten the penis. You will start to see improvement within 2-3 weeks though.

Just make sure you purchase a high quality castor oil and not a cheap brand. Rub and massage a small amount of the oil onto the affected area then lightly apply a cotton bandage to keep the heat and pressure on overnight. Make sure you do this before bedtime every night for best results. Here's a few brands of castor oil you should look at using... High Quality Castor Oil.

You can also read more about this cure here... Castor Oil for Peyronie's Disease.


#2. Acetyl-L-Carnitine: A study published in the July 2001 edition of the journal "BJU International," showed that carnitine supplements are safer and more effective for treating Peyronie's disease than tamoxifen, the most common drug used to treat this condition. You can easily buy acetyl-l carnitine from most health food stores or online. For dosages, follow the directions on the bottle.


#3. Gotu Kola: According to Tufts Medical Center, the gotu kola herb can help reduce the problems associated with the formation of fibrous tissues under the skin and therefore may be helpful in the treatment of curvature of the penis. You can buy gotu kola in capsule, tincture and ointment form. Once again for dosages, be sure to follow the directions on the container.


So hopefully these remedies help you out Roy. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying them so be sure to give'em a fair go!


Good luck and all the best to you.

A Unique Cure for Peyronie's Disease That Worked for Me
by: Anonymous

I was diagnosed with Peyronie's disease in June 2016. My Urologist said it probably started a few months previous after attempting sex without a firm erection, and I injured my penis.
I had solid lumps buried on the top of my penis, and what felt like two hardened worms going from the base of the shaft to almost the head. I also had very painful incomplete erections.
After he told me there weren't any cures, I presumed he meant medically or from the FDA. I researched this disease for a couple weeks and didn't find anything concrete, except for some people who were helped with ultrasound.
Not having such a machine, I thought I would try something similar, my Sonic toothbrush. OK, weird I know.
I placed my thumb underneath my penis, and with my fingers, pulled the penis down and around the thumb, forcing the lumps to the surface as best as possible.
Then I set the vibrations on the toothbrush to the highest setting, and with the flat end, (opposite side of the brushes) I firmly pressed the vibrating flat side onto the lumps and massaged them and the rest of my penis for about 5 minutes. I noticed almost immediate relief. After a couple days, I did the same thing, and a day or so later the same thing. The lumps are gone now, and have no evidence of ever having Peyronie's.
I did put some Castor oil on the hardened "worms" and they softened up too.
This is such an embarrassing and debilitating disease, I hope this is the cure for everyone, along with using Castor oil.

Good luck!

My Cure
by: Anonymous

About three years ago I felt lumps in my penis, which was a little frightening. I didn't know what the lumps were. It eventually got worse. The 45 degree bend, the indentation, the painful erection, and worst of all, the shortening. I did some research then found the name - Peyronie's disease. I researched a cure but nothing much. I looked into natural cures and came upon castor oil and tried it - massaging my penis everyday with the oil. It worked! My penis is almost back to normal. Castor oil absolutely works.

You don't need to locate the plaque. Simply use the castor oil remedy and massage the whole penis well every day. Remember, it can take a good 12 weeks for it to really work so be patient. The gotu cola and Acetyl-L-Carnitine are both taken orally.

Best of luck. :)

Hi all,
Massaging castor oil on my penis to cure peyronie's disease is causing a reaction on my testicles skin.I am developing dead skin that dries up and then peels off. Is this a cause for concern?

The oil shouldn't go on your testicle skin. Also, make sure you're using a good quality organic castor oil and not one of the cheap brands. You get what you pay for.

Thanks for the advice! I do have a question? Are you suggesting to do all three of these at the same time? Or just pick one? And with the pills, are they better taken in the morning or evening?

It's definitely best to use all three. That way you'll get the best results. With the Acetyl-L-Carnitine you take 1000 mg's daily (500 in the morning and 500 at night) and with the Gotu Kola it's around 900 mg's each day (450 in the morning and 450 in the evening).

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Just read this thread today. I went straight out and bought some castor oil. No problem getting it from health food shop '(pharmacies dont seem to stock it). Enjoyed applying it!! Hoping for a result. Keep you posted. Although my partner likes the new bend I have I don't. It's uncomfortable and I want to be as I was. Fingers crossed.

Peyronie's better overnight!
by: Spoonman

So, my title says it all. This may be a bit long but I think it may be helpful to some. I know reading through some of the comments below helped me alleviate quite a bit of the pain (especially the sonic toothbrush and castor oil) that was present the first week.

My peyronie's seems to have been self-inflicted doing the jelqing (penis enlarging) exercise. I over did it and the symptoms were literally immediate. Overnight I got this chord-like string popping up along the middle of my shaft (on top) - from the base of the shaft all the way up to the glands. I could also feel the hardening (plaque) on the area on top of the shaft just below the glands, with small lumps (the lumps are now almost gone) present on the sides of the shaft, also just below the glands. After this point, erections were a NO GO! The throbbing/burning/cutting pain just below the glands when semi-erect were ridiculous. After 4-5 days still not knowing what this was I assumed I got a thrombosed vein. So I tried to force erections to see what was happening. It was painful and that is when I noticed the curvature (my penis bending upwards) right where I could feel the hardening underneath the skin. My penis is normally straight. This was unmistakable. So I ended up with a case of Peyronie's, which literally happened overnight!

I was a bit stressed at first but being a pretty relaxed guy I accepted the facts and started looking for ways to get rid of it. I'm still not there yet but it seems things are improving and it's only been 14 days (6 days of remedies). I have read that acute and chronic phases could last anywhere between 6-18 months. This I think has A LOT to do with each individual, their immune system and how they treat their bodies. I personally am very active. I don't drink, smoke or eat garbage food. I train 4-6 times a week. I've always been like this and am lucky to have a strong immune system. Needless to say, I believe having a healthy body, and mind for that matter, makes recovery happen much faster, as is with my case where my body was repairing the damage within a few days.

Today it's been 14 days and I can actually get a full-on erection. I tried it today and did so without any serious pain. At this point it's obvious that the bending is where the hardening (plaque) is, though the chord-like string is pulling my penis backwards still. Together they do make my penis look banana-shaped. So, in 6 days of treating this, this is what has helped me so far?

1. I am not stressing about it and am going about my daily life as normal. I am not touching to feel if there is a change every few hours and I am trying to let my body take care of the healing process. As I said, having a healthy lifestyle means faster recovery times!

2. I bought Castor oil and have been applying it pretty much along my entire shaft. I rub the oil in, then I lightly soak 2 cotton pads with castor oil and place them on top of my shaft, which is already rubbed in with Castor oil. Then I take a piece of plastic foil large enough to put around my penis twice (not the glands) to keep the pads and oil in place and avoid getting oil on my boxers. This last piece is something I came up with myself. I bought a pack of "hot spot pads" which are small squares that get warm. They get warm when taken out of the plastic bag and last for 5-6 hours. Just before going to bed, I place one of these on the outside of my boxers and then put a second pair of boxers on to keep the pad in place nicely on top of my penile shaft (it would be too warm to put straight on the skin!) This also keeps slight pressure on the whole area.

3. I've tried the Sonic toothbrush technique suggested below twice. I actually tried it today properly for the first time. I did 7-8 minutes and I could definitely feel the difference for the better. Will continue doing this too.

I'll come back in a few weeks and update this. See how things go.

Thanks for taking the time to share your story and remedies with us Spoonman. Yes, the jelqing exercises are a dangerous exercise. We definitely advise against anyone doing them (The Dangers of Jelqing Exercises). Fortunately, it seems you will come out of this okay. Give these remedies at least 12 weeks and you'll see even better results!

Hey guys, thanks for all the great tips. I have been dealing with this for a long time now and tried everything out there, even being a guinea pig and getting an injection directly into my penis every week for 7 weeks. That did nothing as well. I had a solid 8" penis and have lost almost 2.5" due to my peyronie's. Very depressing. I ordered a good organic castor oil off Amazon. Looking forward to starting this.

Castor oil treatment?
by: Dave

1st let me say that when flaccid, I have a very small penis. So it would be very difficult to wrap my penis with anything that would stay in place over night. In your experience, has anyone ever injected small amounts of castor oil into the urethra and worked it into the penis from the inside? Is this method feasible and what if any precautions would one need to take. I realize you would want to take care not to introduce any bacteria into the urethra, but applying the oil from the inside would seem to me to be a very effective way to apply it... your thoughts?

Mar 16, 2017
Reply
by: Troy

Never heard of anyone doing this Dave and we wouldn't recommend it anyway. Too many things could go wrong and the oil would probably burn like crazy. The thing is, the oil still reaches the hardened worms and plaque when rubbed/massaged in. You don't have to wrap the penis afterwards either. Just rubbing the castor oil on will be enough. It will still be effective and will still reach the spots it needs to to promote healing.

Hope this helps.

All the best.:)

Over night plaque attack
by: Anonymous

Today is March 21 2017. Very painful erections. Have the castor oil now. What a thick mess that is. Research has me focused on the Sonic toothbrush. I'm getting one today. I hope I can find the one with the most sonic action. I got a penis pump 3 months ago. That seemed to get things flowing and big... but I was concerned it would do more harm than good so I stopped. My penis was in great shape, this condition hit my literally over night. Like everyone else, I'm freaking out about this. Researched enough to know there is no established medical industry solution so I haven't gone to a doctor for the condition. Back to the sonic toothbrush - it seems the most plausible way to break up the plaque in a controlled way that won't damage the penis. I haven't really used the caster oil daily, just such a mess but I guess I need to start that regimen. I wish the medical industry would just tell us a simple way to do treat this problem. Is the sonic toothbrush a type of massager for your face? Anyway, just my reply to this blog. As I said before, all my research points to something more like the sonic toothbrush because while soaking your penis or taking vitamin E internally just doesn't seem like a direct action that you can take and get some kind of result in a day or two .

The castor oil method shouldn't be messy (read Spoonman's post above - Feb 21st - for his method). The Sonic toothbrush that you should be looking to buy is one of these varieties... Sonic Toothbrushes. It can take anywhere from 3-6 months to fully reverse this condition using the castor oil & toothbrush method so you will need to be patient.

Best of luck! :)

Got the sonic brush
by: Anonymous

Here's what I did yesterday. I got a Sonic Diamond Clean. It has five "speeds". And yup I vibrated the little rascal for about 20 minutes on the top and spent most of the time over the hardest deposit. I went to a full erection and believe it or not I had slightly less pain with a full erection. I finished the treatment with castor oil. Wrapped him up in a face towel and went to bed. Woke up this morning and felt no negative affect from the session. Midday today I did a lil stretching with castor oil, just to get the blood flowing. I really think this Sonic treatment has some merit. I'll report early next week and tell you if it was just beginners luck or if there's some serious improvement. Stay tuned, there's a glimmer of hope here with this protocol.

Castor oil
by: Anonymous

Hi, a few month ago I noticed that my penis was a bit more curved than usual, so I went on the internet to do some research about curved penis's and I've learned about peyronies disease. I don't know if it's just me but lately I noticed that it was getting more curved, so from what u guys have advised, I don't know if it's peyronie disease or normal curvature of penis? But anyway, I don't wanna have a bent penis, and what I'm seeing now it's clearly not normal curvature of the penis when erect. So I wanna start using the castor oil method to see if I can get it back straight, but can u guys tell me exactly what sort of castor oil? I'm seeing so many sorts. Is there one specific for peyronie disease or can I buy any type. Can u please tell me and let me know how I have to use it?
Thanks. Hope someone replies.

Any type of castor oil will work, however, the 100% pure cold pressed (and hexane free) castor oil is the best and safest to use. It costs a bit more but it's worth it and you'll see results quicker. Foxbrim is one of the top brands if you can get it... Foxbrim Organic Castor Oil.

In regards to how you use it, it's all listed in the article above.

Hope this helps.

I'll try this
by: Anonymous

Okay, so I have had Peyronie's for a few years now, no terrible pain, but definitely discomfort. I have noticed though that I have the discomfort more often now and it seems to radiate all through my penis, even into the Perineum area. I have read about alot of guys with this symptom. Apparently the two don't go together but I doubt that because everything in the body is connected. Anyways, I plan on trying the Castor oil because I had a foot wart once and I spent thousands of dollars at doctors offices only to have it cured by simple Apple cider vinegar. It took like two months, but the wart did fall off. If I had the patience for that I will definitely try this.

Hello, I was wondering how am I supposed to locate the plaque on my penis to massage it? And how long do I need to massage to see any improvement? I've been using the castor oil for almost one week now and I'm not seeing any improvement. Maybe I'm not massaging correctly or maybe it's too early to see improvement?

Apr 10, 2017

Firstly, make sure you are using a good quality castor oil and not a cheap brand. Follow the recommendation exactly for using the castor oil so you get the most out of it. With the Sonic toothbrush, anywhere from five to twenty minutes seems to be the time frame. If you can't locate the plaque or worms, then just massage on the bent side. This is where the plaque will be. Have a read of the "A Unique Cure for Peyronie's Disease That Worked for Me" comment above (July 29. 2016) for more information. Remember, it can take up to 12 weeks to really see significant improvement so you'll need to be patient (and diligent in your efforts).

Best of luck!

Severe curvature
by: Anonymous

Hi, I've had PD for years and until this day I'd lost hope due to the research I've done on the net. I have a severe curvature which I thought was not possible to treat. I just bought zinc and castor oil cream which I got from a pharmacy. I don't know if it's going to help and I'm also taking vitamin E. I live in Africa and due to circumstances I can't afford a quality castor oil and it's really hard to find.

Hi, would a vibrator work the same as the toothbrush? The knot I have is only at the base of my shaft and when I get hard it looks like a hourglass and flops side to side. Sex is very painful, so much I don't even want to try anymore. I pray we all find a cure!

Not sure if the cream will work to be honest. You can only try it and see. Pure organic castor oil is really what you need. Surely you can buy organic castor oil in Africa? Try Googling "buy organic castor oil in Africa" and see what comes up. I know you can order it from South Africa and maybe get it shipped to where you live? The same goes for purchasing the Sonic toothbrush. Just a thought? :)

Hi, I have just been diagnosed with Peyronie's disease yesterday. I have the wasting type (hourglass) with no hardness. If anything the penis is floppy at the end and has a narrowing below the head of the penis. Is this method of castor oil, Acety L Carnitine and Gotu Kola (natural products from the health store), as well as the sonic toothbrush appropriate for my type of problem? The Urologist suggested that the only cure was surgery. Thanks for any advice.

Going to try the organic oil treatment
by: Roy

I will start the caster oil treatment today. I will need to get some better oil. Had some caster oil and used this for trying to get some hair to grow back but would be best to get the good stuff for this to actually work right? Thank you for the suggestions. Is it necessary to have a little heat to make it work better? I could add a little bit of cayenne pepper to the caster oil. I am referring may be a pinch to a full bottle. Maybe just a few flakes on each application. Bottom line, is the heat really necessary? Does it speed up the process? Thanks. Roy

It's crucial that you use a good quality castor oil Roy. Foxbrim is an excellent one if you can get it (check Amazon or Ebay). You don't need to mix cayenne pepper with the castor oil. Only use the oil on its own and massage in well, particularly where the "worms and knots" are. Try and incorporate the Sonic toothbrush in your daily protocol as well. It works extremely well, especially when combined with the castor oil. :)

Electronic Pulse massager for PD
by: Chris

I just found out from my Urologist that my bent/curved penis is peyronie's. The urologist gave me Vitamin E-400 with Selenium. I searched the net to see if this would treat or cure my PD but I found that there are more PD sufferers being cured by Castor Oil and the Sonic Toothbrush method. I have an Oral B electric toothbrush but not sure if it is sonic. I also have a battery operated Electronic Pulse Massage device. Can I use this and then apply the castor oil? The EPM device has sticky pads that needs to stick to my penis where the electric pulses is coming from then transmitted deep into the skin.
I'd like to ask if anyone have tried this or if this is safe to use on my penis. I'll start with the minimum setting.

Will try the Castor oil
by: Charles

I stumbled on this site by searching Peyronies. I went to my GP in Jan 2016 and he said that I have Peyronies. I asked my GP what is Peyronies. He didn't really know and Googled it there and then. Soooooo GP's do not know everything? He referred me to a Urologist who said I should live with it provided that my erections are not painful.(They are not). So I have lived with this for more than 19 months. I have started the castor oil, cold Pressed as advised, on 24/07/2017. I am applying twice a day, am and pm. Crossing my fingers.

Peyronie's treatment
by: Anonymous

For over two years I have had Peyronie's. No Dr would give me any positive input or advice on how to treat this nagging problem. About a month ago I started using the protocol of treatment options from the Peyronie's institute found online. My individual situation was a result of medications and how they interacted together. I am certain that my condition was caused by the combination of Toprol and Finasteride, both medications known to contribute and cause peyronie's. I am currently using DMSO, Castor oil, and recently, vitamin E oil as a topical treatment. Upon examination by my physician the plaques have softened and are gradually going away. I am currently using enzymes, B vitamins, Q10, vitamin E, vitamin C, and a host of other vitamins and natural things to work from the inside. I will try the sonic toothbrush and let you know how that works out. Hopefully within two months everything should be back to normal. I have been living with this condition for over 2 1/2 years.

Castor oil daily

Have been reading about the success with the castor oil so we are trying it. My wife rubs it on daily onto my curved area and we are also doing the sonic care toothbrush thing. Will let you all know if it works. I also take vitamin D3000 pills daily. Even though my curve is a slight dent on the right side of the shaft, we have noticed loss of length and a not-so-hard erection so hopefully this will cure it in time. Thanks to Troy for opening this discussion page and to all that have left there feedback. Hopefully we can all get fixed.

Sonic toothbrush - erect or flaccid?

18 months on
by: Tony

I've had PD now for around 18 months, starting as a small plaque formation and gradually growing over time and forming an hour glass shape when erect. It's also angled at about 30 degrees, making it difficult to have intercourse. On occasion I have shooting pains which are uncomfortable rather than painful. I've tried the tooth brush method with castor oil which eased it but didn't produce any shrinkage. Recently I've started using bio oil which is generally used to remove scars and stretch marks after pregnancy. It has stopped the pain completely and the plaque seems much softer and decreasing in size. I'm hoping I've found a solution to this very annoying problem. I will update my progress in a couple of months. Thank you every one for sharing your stories.

Looking for advice?
by: Me P

Hi,
I was diagnosed with PD a little over a year ago after unnecessary insertion of catheter for a uti and difficulty urinating at my local ER. The insertion of the catheter was very painful and I was in pain for the whole time I had it in (10 days). After they removed the catheter I was still in pain, which only intensified in the next week, so for the next 4-5 months I was in extreme pain and was barely able to sleep a few hours a night. There was also a dent towards the top of the shaft on the left side when I tried to get an erection, which was incredibly painful.
Now after a year the pain has gradually subsided and I don't have pain every day, but there's a narrowing at the bottom of the shaft on both sides. I usually get pain after sex or masturbation and it lasts for a day or two. It is only on the left side and sometimes it shoots all the way down my leg on the left side.
I forgot to mention that I can't find any plaque buildup (even though the doctor who did my ultrasound said there is some). The penis is slightly bent to the left but I can live with that.
The main problem for me is the narrowing at the bottom of the shaft and the pain that occurs sometimes.
Will the castor oil and the above mentioned supplements help with the narrowing?
Any kind of feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Difficult to say to be honest. But the great thing is the Gotu Kola and the acetyl-l carnitine, along with the castor oil and toothbrush method, are all perfectly safe and will not do you any harm. So why not give them a go for at least 3-4 months and see what results you get!

All the best!

PD
by: Ander

Hello, I am 19 years old and have had this for 2 years. It is not very bent but is shorter than before. I started the toothbrush and castor oil treatment 2 days ago. Hope it fixes things up.

Ultrasonic jewellery cleaner?
by: Jon

My wife has an ultrasonic jewellery cleaner. I would imagine that would work like the toothbrush. It has 42000 vibrations versus an ultrasonic toothbrush at 33000. It might be difficult to use but it would save me $200 by not getting the toothbrush! Thoughts?

Thank You Troy and Commenters

Troy,

You're a good man for offering such a valuable service. I'm going to try the Foxbrim castor oil, the oral supplements, and the Sonic toothbrush.

Blessings to you and best of luck to all!

Rash
by: Anonymous

So I have done this for a week but I have some rashes on the top of my shaft below the head. I think it is from the castor oil. I use Foxbrim castor oil. Is it ok for this rash to happen? I'm a bit worried.

Safety of Acetyl-L Carnitine
by: Simon T.

Dear, Troy:

Have you any thoughts on the safety of Acetyl-L Carnitine? I'm referring to those who, aside from Peyronie's, don't have any other health concerns.

When searching for information about Acetyl-L Carnitine, not surprisingly, I found plenty of information that would likely cause people to avoid it.

I write "not surprisingly," because you know better than I about how everything seems to be good AND bad for us today. One day, butter is good, the next day, it's bad. Eggs are good, eggs are bad. Grains, legumes, lectins, phytates, saturated fats, PUFAs, and on and on.

There certainly does seem to be some contraindications with Acetyl-L Carnitine, for certain disease conditions and medications, but what about everyone else?

Thank you,

Simon

Foxbrim is a quality brand so this should be fine. Make sure you only use the castor oil on the worms and hardened areas. Also make sure you wash your hands before applying the castor oil. Any bacteria, etc, on your hands can cause a rash/infection. :)

I don't know of anyone who has suffered any side effects or problems from taking Acetyl-L Carnitine. I've even used it myself many times (and long term) for fat burning with no problems whatsoever. As usual, the scare campaign for Acetyl-L Carnitine comes primarily from medical websites. As long as you stick to the recommended dosages for this amino acid, you'll be fine. :)

Hello Troy,
Ive been doing this brush and castor oil remedy every night before bed for around 3-4 weeks, but I haven't seen much if any change when erect. Should I still continue with it? Do you think it could take more time to work? Thanks for your reply!

Oct 12, 2017

It can take up to 12 weeks, even longer in some cases (depending on the severity) for the healing to occur, so yes, definitely continue with it James. Be patient, it will be worth it.

All the best!

Progress
by: Anonymous

I would find it encouraging to continue with this if I heard more success stories. Although claims are made that this technique is effective I've seen only two reports of actual observable progress. I would love to hear of other success stories. I've been using the castor oil and toothbrush method for two months with absolutely no straightening.

I ask that other sufferers chime in with reports of progress. I guess I need encouragement to continue.

Do I need sonic toothbrush
by: Rob

Hi, I have started with the castor oil. But I have concerns with the tooth brush. I have a large plaque which has been there for years. Could I form more plaque if I press a sonic brush into the penis? Since the plaque has been there since I was a kid will castor or penetrate through the skin to get rid of it? It would be amazing.

Sonic Toothbrush?
by: Chris

Hi Troy, I have been doing this method for seven weeks. Unfortunately, no results. But I think my injury is more severe than most, so I’m being patient. I figured I could be using the wrong Sonic toothbrush though? I take both supplements and use the Foxbrim Organic Castor Oil. I said I would start leaving the castor oil on for longer periods. I use the Sonic toothbrush to massage the plaque area for twenty minutes. I’m just not sure if it has enough speed or strong enough vibrations. They have some that are more expensive. This is just a regular Philips Sonicare Essence my brother had. But then I read where some are up to $200. I’ve had this injury for over a year now. I kinda just realized there’s nothing I can do but be patient and try some safe healing methods. I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t bother me. Lol. It does really depress me. Life could be worse though. It’s all good. Thank you for your time and input. Have a good day.

Can't say for sure on both questions Rob. Unfortunately, Peyronie's comes in many different forms and levels of severity. What works for one person doesn't always necessarily work for another. The only thing you can do is try them both. We've never heard from anyone who has said that either method made their Peyronie's worse... not one. :)

The toothbrush you have should be okay. When using the castor oil, massage into the worms then leave on. Make sure you don't get any oil on/into unwanted areas as it can burn. Have a read of the July 29th, 2016 comment, "A Unique Cure for Peyronie's Disease That Worked for Me" for more information on how to use the Sonic toothbrush.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Improvement
by: James

I've been doing this for quite a while now - 2 months I think? The curvature has gotten slightly better and my penis definitely has gotten smoother when erect and is not like a curved rock anymore. Hope it keeps improving. Thanks again!!

Continuing
by: Ash

I've been using the castor oil for about 9 months now and there has been some good improvement during that time, but I'm definitely not Peyronies free. I've had this for 5 years though, so it was almost certainly calcified with a big long scar.

Over the months the scarring has become more jelly like so I'll keep going. I've had far more success with cheap natural things like the castor oil and ginger, than any of the established treatments.

I have a Philips Sonicare brush, but I would be very reluctant to try this, because the scarring has always reacted badly to handling in my case.

If what you're doing is working Ash then stick with it. Because you've had Peyronie's for quite a while, it will obviously take longer to heal. But you're definitely on the right track.

Black seed oil
by: Green

I've heard black seed oil (cold pressed) is another great oil to use. I'm actually on my second week with that along with castor oil and so far I'm starting to see some improvements. I've had peyronie's now for 3 years.

Thanks for the hope.
by: TWK

Thanks to everyone for their input, it has given me some hope. This problem is absolutely horrible. Between it, and my wife's menopause issues, we have not had sex in almost 2 years.
I think we have her issues pretty much solved, but I have such a severe bend (close to 40 degrees left and up) that intercourse is pretty much impossible. Definitely going to try the castor oil method. It figures that the answer would be good old simple natural stuff. Here's hoping anyway. The sonic idea makes sense too. I have said so many times that it's just crazy that we don't have a cure... its plaque and scar tissue! They can get plaque out of arteries and can remove kidney stones, so it doesn't seem that complicated to me!
I have to admit that I have been tempted to try out my antique Violet Ray!

Thanks again guys.

Not sure what a violet ray is but hopefully the castor oil and Sonic toothbrush method help you.

Peyronies
by: Anonymous

I’ve had this now since last January and went to the urologist. He gave me pentoxifyllne 400 mg to take 3 times a day and use a pro extender device. Well, the meds don't seem to be working so I got some organic castor oil and have been applying this. I’m see results but as far as the tooth brush method, how would I work that? Brush the area where the peyronies is or the opposite side? I also stretch my penis the opposite side for 40 seconds so I’m hoping it works.
