Masculine Vitality: A scientific and integrative approach to male sexual health - Dr Robert Buist - 2014Consider these statistics: - in at least 50% of cases, infertility of couples is attributed to the male, and 50% of poor sperm results are associated with oxidative stress; - one in four men diagnosed with erectile dysfunction are under the age of 40, and the condition is often a symptom of a more serious health problem; - it is estimated one in seven Australian men over the age of 40 years are diagnosed with prostate disease, and its frequency increases with age. These issues of poor sperm health, erectile dysfunction and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) are seldom a topic openly discussed amongst men. They are, however, surprisingly common and are frequently a complication of a bigger issue. Fortunately, specific dietary and lifestyle modifications, combined with the right supplementation, have the ability to address the root cause of such conditions and consequently enhance male fertility and sexual satisfaction, plus attenuate urinary symptoms for a better quality of life. Join Dr Robert Buist to understand the research and science behind innovative approaches to: • mitigate the complications of chronic stress in males • support healthy hormone balance in men • optimise sperm health and fertility for natural conception and IVF • correct erectile dysfunction through management of underlying causes • understand the causes and processes of BPH • manage the symptoms of BPH • reduce the risk of prostate cancer. This education session will assist you in developing a deeper understanding of men’s health, and will incorporate training on the practical implementation of the above information Watch Now »
Prof Michael Holick - The D-Lightful Vitamin D - Symposium 2013This talk highlights why vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency has been related to increased risk for rickets in children and osteoporosis and the painful bone disease osteomalacia in adults. Besides the skeletal health benefits of vitamin D, it is now recognised that vitamin D deficiency has been associated with a wide variety of clinical disorders including preeclampsia, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, neurocognitive dysfunction and infectious diseases. To treat and prevent vitamin D deficiency the Endocrine Society recommends children ages 0-1 and 1-18 require 400-600 IUs and 600-1000 IUs vitamin D daily respectively and adults require 1500-2000 IUs daily. Those who are obese (BMI >30) need 2-5 times more vitamin D. Vitamin D toxicity is not observed until serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels >150 ng/ml. Sensible sun exposure, dietary intake of vitamin D and vitamin D supplements is a three-part strategy to maintain a satisfactory vitamin D status to maximise health. Watch Now »
