A 53-year-old musician was recently diagnosed with Dupuytren's contracture, an abnormal thickening of tough tissue in the palm and fingers that causes the fingers to curl. It is affecting the little finger on his left hand. He also has Peyronie's disease, a hard lump or scar tissue that forms on the penis. The two conditions are often related. Can anyone recommend natural treatments for these conditions? Try Serrapeptase, an enzyme produced in the gut of the silkworm. It digests non-living tissue (scar tissue). Both conditions can also be eased greatly by taking 400 IU of natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol - NOT manufactured dl-alpha tocopherol) with food, a treatment confirmed by a urinary specialist. This is a natural remedy, however, and will take some time to have effect. Also, as you may be aware, vitamin E and vitamin C should be taken together because they work synergistically.
