Dr Wilson has come to focus his work on women’s health from an interesting chain of events. In addition to having studied acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine at the Sydney Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine (SITCM), Dr Wilson also has an undergraduate major in psychology. Dr Wilson decided to combine the two disciplines and undertook research at the University of Technology, Sydney. He conducted a clinical trial in which he tested using acupuncture for depression and anxiety. During this research, he became well versed in treating imbalances which Chinese medicine theory attributes to the liver. The liver, according to the Chinese medicine theory, is linked to conditions related to mood/mental health as well as the menstrual cycle. Dr Wilson has applied this knowledge to women’s health and fertility.
