Avoid Peyronie's Treatment Scams
You should keep your eyes open for Peyronie's treatment scams.
The fact is there is always someone willing to take advantage of other people, especially when people are suffering from “private”, “embarrassing” or “emotional” health conditions such as the Peyronie's disease.
I have come across several “treatments” that I personally would classify as scams. In this article I will give you advice on how to detect potential scams.
How To Detect Peyronie's Treatment Scams?
It can be difficult to detect what is Peyronie's scam and what is not. There is a big grey area.
Some Peyronie's treatment scams are more sophisticated than others. Sometimes it is about what is not said. Sometimes the information's given are plain and simply wrong, misleading, unsubstantiated and in worst cases fraudulent.
It is not only on-line where you have to be careful about what and whom you believe. The internet may make it easier for fraudsters to hide anonymously but there are also fraudsters out there in the “real world”.
Always take everything you read or hear about Peyronie's disease with a pinch of salt in the beginning. Double check the information, look for confirmations.
If someone promises to cure your Peyronie's, red warning lights should immediately start flashing. Peyronie's disease is currently incurable.
It can however be treated but no one can guarantee that any Peyronie's treatment will work for you. Some treatments may work for some men but not for others, there are no guarantees.
Your condition may determine which treatments are available to you. Some may also be more appropriate for your condition than other treatment options. You must do your homework, research, talk to your doctor and finally decide for yourself.
Don't let anyone tell you what to do (or not do) about your Peyronie's disease. However, be open to suggestions and listen to advice from those you deem trustworthy, i.e. which you feel that know what they are talking about. But the final decision should always be yours.
Be skeptical about everything you see and hear about treatment results until you have found something to support the claims. Ideally clinical studies though they are not always available.
You can also look for expert advice, like doctors, other health professionals, or laymen's you feel confident that have thoroughly researched the subject. But don't take their claimed credentials for granted. Look for confirmation that they are who they say they are.
Check what they say about themselves in their About section (all websites should have one). Can you contact them easily and do they respond to your enquiry?
You should not have to pay for any information on-line, except when buying specialist service or products, like books, videos and courses. Now a day you should be able to access free general information about anything, including Peyronie's disease.
Most websites (and experts) offering advice about Peyronie's are selling something or are affiliates with some re-sellers, they of course have to make a living. No website can provide good and thorough information for nothing. If a website is not selling something, then they are usually being sponsored by some organization.
There is nothing wrong with that as long as the website is “honest” in its' approach. They should not be fixing or maneuvering the facts to fit their sale pitch or mis-selling and promising something that they cannot fulfill.
They should also declare their interest, either in their About section and/or on their Terms & Conditions (Disclaimer section).
Look around (surf the net) with this in mind and you will soon discover whom you feel comfortable trusting.
Good websites will provide you with lot of free information as well as offering you their products for sale... it is however always up to you if you buy or not.
You should never be “forced” to buy something. Most 'special price for you my friend' that are supposed to be only temporarily or ‘one-off only offers' tend to go on and on... and on.
The best way to avoid Peyronie's treatment scams is to read everything you find with an open mind but also with your common sense and skeptical glasses firmly on and remember...
If something sounds too good to be true... it probably is (not true that is)
As always, knowledge is power. The more you know about Peyronie's disease, the less likely you are to fall for Peyronie's treatment scams. I hope this website will help you improve your knowledge about this disease and to find the right treatment for you.
