After suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome by a doctor specialised in the field, I was eventually referred Dr Gillam. With Ian's positive guidance and support, a change in diet and nutrition, I began to show the signs of a recovery within a relatively short period of time and almost fully recover from my fatigue and poor health within 12-18 months. This enabled me to return to full-time work and resume an active lifestyle. Thank you Ian

Enzo Nutraceuticals manufactures dietary supplements products, based on a patented pine bark extract, called Enzogenol, which is distributed throughout the world. We were invited by one of key supporters to arrange an after dinner speaker for a class reunion for the Singapore Medical School. As he was the organiser of the event the success of the speaker would reflect on him. We contacted Dr Ian Gillam to develop and present this talk which was to intellectually interesting to a medical audience, as well as being entertaining, which is always a challenge. Ian crafted and exceptionally well-received talk on "Extreme Sports" by drawing on his experience in Australian Rules Football by linking this to his research on oxidative stress, with some usurped clips on action in AFL football. The organiser was effusive in his praise of Ian and his talk, that was pitched at just the right level for the audience and was especially pleased with the pace and humour in the talk. We would highly recommend Ian as a speaker.
