Peyronie's disease

I have tried topical Verapimal and low level laser treatments with no positive results. Do you have any suggestions along homeopathic lines ... or nutrition ... or herbals?

(For out readers, Peyronie's disease is fibrosis at the base of the penis which replaces a small amount of erectile tissue on one side. This is no problem until there is an erection and then one finds oneself pointing east or west.)The only approach which works is surgical, although it will not restore you completely to your original condition. The trick is to find and experienced urological surgeon who deals with this problem. You could call Dr. Tom Lue in San Francisco for a referral or go to him directly. The other option is to do nothing.
