Vancouver Canada (PRWEB) February 16, 2012

Age takes its toll on mens sperm starting at about age 30, and semen quantity and sperm quality decline sharply after age 45 according to a recent study presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicines annual conference.

This can affect pregnancy outcomes for couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Advanced paternal age is also associated with a higher risk of spontaneous abortion and genetic disorders like downs syndrome, autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia. Natural supplements and Traditional Chinese medicine appears to repair the quality of aging sperm.

Acubalance Wellness Centre, a Fertility Acupuncture clinic, is offering a free seminar on Fertility and Age: Can You Turn Back the Reproductive Clock? March 12 at Pekoe Tea Lounge in Vancouver. Lorne Brown, a Dr of TCM and clinical director at Acubalance, will be talking about the effects of age on mens and womens fertility, and what you can do about it.

Much of what we do is try to slow down the reproductive clock, repair environmental insults to the reproductive system, and extend that window of fertility for both men and women. Chinese herbal therapy and regular acupuncture has been shown to boost sperm quality. There are now some exciting studies showing that CO Q10 may be effective in improving semen parameters. says Brown.

A study published in the Journal of Urology found that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation resulted in a statistically significant improvement in certain semen parameters. The study stated that further studies were needed to determine to what extent those improved parameters results in increased pregnancy rates.

Another study has just shown that vitamin D levels may be a potent factor in fertility for men and women. Vitamin D is essential for the healthy development of each sperms nucleus. It also increases levels of the male sex hormone testosterone, improving a mans libido, according to the review of several studies, published this week in the European Journal of Endocrinology.

Vitamin D3 is one of the supplements I prescribe to boost male fertility in all my male patients particularly those over 40, says Brown.

      Simple Steps for Boosting Energy, from the June 2013 Harvard Men’s Health Watch (amazon) (shopzilla)


      Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

      Some days do you feel like the Energizer Bunny with a weak batterystarting strong but unable to keep going and going? There are several ways to help boost flagging energy, like pacing activities, taking power naps, and eating healthfully, according to the June 2013 issue of the Harvard Men’s Health Watch. One thing that doesn’t work: taking overhyped dietary supplements.

      Sometimes fatigue is due to a medical condition. If that’s been ruled out, here are a few basic steps to maintain energy throughout the day:

      Set a steady pace: With age, the energy “battery” may not be able to store quite the charge it used to. “It’s fully charged but it’s smaller and you have fewer hours of energy in it,” says Dr. Fabiny, chief of geriatrics at Cambridge Health Alliance and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “If you try to do all the things you did in the past, you could end up feeling tired.” Instead of burning through the battery in two hours, spread it out between morning tasks, afternoon tasks, and evening activitieswith rest and meals between.

      Take a walk: When daytime fatigue stems from chronic sleeplessness (insomnia), napping can make it worse. Instead of napping, get up and take a walk. For people who sleep well at night, a 20- to 30-minute power nap may work wonders.

      Fuel up: Sugary bakery treats deliver plenty of calories to rev up energy in the morning, but the body tends to metabolize them quickly. The result is often a sinking blood sugar level and fatigue. Instead, eat a breakfast or lunch with protein and fiber and moderate carbslike low-fat yogurt with a sprinkling of nuts, raisins, and honey. The body burns a carb-fiber-protein mix more gradually. And don’t skip meals: Your body needs a certain number of calories to get through the work of the day.

      Skip the supplements: Don’t believe claims that the widely hyped supplement known as DHEA is an anti-aging supplement. “There is absolutely no evidence that DHEA provides any benefit,” Dr. Fabiny says. Taking extra B vitamins doesn’t boost energy either. The same can be said for iron supplements, and getting too much iron can actually be harmful. Get your vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients the old fashioned wayin food.
