Dr Wilson has come to focus his work on fertility treatments 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 successfully used acupuncture to treat depression and anxiety. During this research, he became an expert for treating imbalances which Chinese medicine theory attributes to the liver. The liver, according to the Chinese medicine, is linked to conditions related to mood/mental health as well as the menstrual cycle. As a consequence of this research, Dr Wilson has gained valuable knowledge in how to successfully treat conditions related to the liver. Dr Wilson has applied this knowledge to regulate the menstrual cycle and hence improve fertility. In addition to this, he is also an expert in treating stress which is commonly acknowledged as a common causational factor for infertility.
