All-Natural Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s disease can be frustrating, embarrassing, and painful for men. Studies show 1% – 23% of all men may be affected to varying degrees. This condition may have quite a negative impact on erections and, in turn, sexual performance. The resulting feeling of an overall reduced quality of life can feel overwhelming.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is frequently linked to Peyronie’s disease:  areas of hardened scar tissue called plaques form on the penis, making it less flexible and causing it to bend. If the curve is especially severe, the man may not be able to have intercourse. It is a psychologically traumatic condition that lowers men’s self-esteem and frequently stresses relationships.

Penile pain can be present with or without an erection. In some cases, the pain can go away on its own, but in most cases it persists or worsens. Fortunately, there is hope for those who suffer from this condition. Peyronie’s disease is treatable. Even better news is that it is also curable. There are several treatments available. Out of these treatments, one all natural treatment stands out–  the Priapus shot. Also called the P-shot, it is an amazingly effective all-natural treatment. The treatment works by administering platelet rich plasma directly to the penis. It causes penile growth, and increases blood flow by improving systemic function. The P-shot may be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as medications and penis pumps.

Successful treatment of this condition can be life changing in the best ways imaginable! If you’re looking for a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating Peyronie’s disease or any other type of erectile dysfunction treatment in Baltimore, contact pinnaclemenshealthbaltimore.com today.

The Potential Causes of “Male Breasts”

If you have male breasts instead of lean, defined pectoral muscles, you’re probably searching for answers on how to correct your condition. Some men have a challenge getting rid of the extra fatty tissue in this area. There may be a struggle to lose “man boobs” despite best efforts of working out and eating the right foods. The reason for this could easily be a case of mistaken identity. Men that only use diet and exercise to address this issue are more than likely under the impression that they’re merely a bit overweight. However, for men over the age of 40, a hormonal imbalance could be the culprit. Specifically, hormones such as testosterone and estrogen could be directly responsible. When out of balance, a result can be a condition called gynecomastia. In men, when hormones are considered to be within normal limits, testosterone levels should be higher than estrogen levels. Certain conditions can throw off the balance of these hormones raising estrogen levels and lowering testosterone levels.

What can cause this hormonal imbalance?

Medications
Anti-androgens, anabolic steroids, androgens, antibiotics, ulcer medications, heart medications, gastric motility medications, anti-anxiety medications, tricyclic antidepressants, chemotherapy, AIDS medications

Recreational drug use
Alcohol, amphetamines, marijuana, heroin, methadone

Underlying health conditions
Normal aging, hypogonadism, hyperthyroidism, tumors, kidney failure, liver failure and cirrhosis, malnutrition and starvation

Herbs/Plant oils
Tea tree oil, lavender
