Ways to motivate men to participate in optimizing their fertility

After Jill Glover's amazing webinar a few weeks ago, I decided to invite her for an interview about male infertility, healthy men and how to inspire them to receive treatment.

I got up early here in Vancouver, BC so I could catch Jill between patients in the UK. Thank you to those who joined us live - please click below to watch the recording where Jill Glover, Sandro Graca and I talk about men's health and in particular how to motivate them to take care of their health.



Male fertility is declining rapidly, and now accounts for 40% of couple’s infertility. These men are notably absent from the treatment room. They are frequently told their sperm is ‘fine’ or ‘normal’, and confuse sperm quality with virility. As practitioners treating female infertility, we are effectively working with one hand behind our back.

There is increasing clinical evidence showing the efficacy of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in improving semen profiles. Treating male factor infertility will significantly improve a couple’s chance of a successful pregnancy.

Jill's course on Healthy SeminarsTreating male infertility with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine - got amazing reviews from the participants (click here to see the reviews) and I highly recomend this course as a preparation for the ABORM exam, that relates to male reproductive health.
