Overcoming Peyronie's is a treatment guide for men suffering from Peyronie's. The book includes a comprehensive list and evaluation of Peyronie's treatments, including conventional "Western" medicine as well as natural and alternative therapies. These include Oral treatments (pentoxifylline, vitamin E, colchicine, tamoxifen, potoba, acetyl-L-carnitine, gotu kola, bromelain, gingko biloba, aloe vera, omega 3, digestive enzymes, vitamin C), topical treatments (gels and ointments), medical devices (VED, traction devices, EMDA/ESWT, others), injection therapy, DMSO. There is a section on how to set up your own recovery program with your doctor's support. This includes a discussion of several of the leading Peyronie's physicians, their approaches to treatment, and contact information. There is a Resources and Research guide to enable you to stay up-to-date on treatments, with a review of books and web sites on Peyronie's. Includes a special section devoted to DMSO, one of the most talked about (and perhaps the most controversial) Peyronie's treatments. Today, Peyronie's is commonly treated with a limited set of therapies, and when these do not suffice, penile injections or surgery—in severe cases—are typically the next steps by default. Overcoming Peyronie’s focuses on treating the illness before it gets to the severe stage, and on leveraging the full range of treatment options, so that you can take an active role in your recovery.
