Jane Lyttleton began her studies in science in NZ and then London with doctoral studies in genetics before succumbing to the siren song of Chinese medicine. She is author of the acclaimed Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine, published in 2004 (2nd ed 2013) by Elsevier Science and now in its 7th reprint in English, and several other languages.
She has lectured at universities in Australia and the UK, and has taught courses and seminars in the treatment of infertility to doctors in Australia, Canada, China, Switzerland, Germany, New Zealand and Britain. She has presented at IVF conferences in California and Sydney.
She has always had a keen interest in the way Chinese medicine can be applied to gynecological disorders in a modern western context, and has run TCM clinics in women’s health centres and general medical centres since the early 1980s. In addition to her own busy practice she has established a number of clinics which work closely with IVF clinics and the University of Western Sydney, and are providing the platform for data collection and clinical research.

Brilliant! I loved all the integration of Eastern and Western medicine! I learned so much about the biomedical aspect of male fertility, and the way it these concepts were consistently related back to TCM principles really helped to deepen my understanding of both TCM and male fertility. I would love to see more from this speaker in the future!
