Presentation Synopsis
The demand for sexual enhancement, vitality, and longevity related healthcare has been growing steadily for decades. Integrative health practitioners have used hormonal therapies with greater success. Pharmaceutical companies have seen niche market and have banked on the success of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra, and now have responded with hormonal therapies and especially with low T. There will hardly any news media, where you do not see an ad for low T. We are starting to see the adverse effects of giving exogenous hormones especially testosterone and estrogens. Medical doctors who do not have holistic understanding are using hormone indiscriminately and hence creating more side effects. In this lecture we will be discussing the history of natural and conventional approaches to manage sexual health. We will outline the principles of Ayurvedic and Naturopathic medicine applied towards promoting sexual vitality. We will learn how Ayurvedic Herbs balances physiologic catabolic and anabolic hormone pathways. We will also explore the effects of insulin resistance on hormonal metabolism. Diagnosis and management of the underlying causes of low hormones in men and women and how to approach issues of infertility in men and women. Clinical cases will be discussed.

Dr. Virender Sodhi earned his Medical Degree (M.D.) in Ayurved from Dayanand Ayurvedic Medical College in Jalandar, India in 1980. He served as a college professor in India until 1986, when the Indian government selected him to share Ayurveda with Western society as part of a cultural exchange program. After arriving in the United States, Dr. Sodhi enrolled at Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington. He received his N.D. degree from Bastyr in 1988. He was subsequently invited to join the faculty at Bastyr to teach Ayurvedic sciences. Dr. Sodhi completed a Fellowship in Integrative Oncology with Dr. Mark Rosenberg in 2012.
Dr. Sodhi is have been visiting professor at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona, at the University of Washington, School of Pharmacy, and at Des Moines University in Iowa.
