After training as a research scientist and geneticist at Guys Hospital in London, Jane Lyttleton moved to Australia to study Chinese medicine. She completed these studies in the early 80s and has continued to extend her knowledge and experience by spending time in clinics in China.
Her clinical focus for the last 35 years has been the treatment of female and male infertility and all other aspects of women’s health. Her other main clinical interest is neurodegenerative disease and the effects of stress.
She has lectured at the University of Western Sydney, University of New South Wales, Macquarie University and University of Westminster, London and has taught courses and seminars to TCM practitioners and doctors in Australia, Canada, China, Switzerland, Germany, New Zealand and the UK. She has presented at IVF conferences in California and Sydney.
Over the years Jane has worked closely with IVF clinics and their patients. She is the founder and clinical director of the Acupuncture Pregnancy clinic in Sydney and Melbourne and has collaborated with the University of Western Sydney on clinical trials investigating the effect of acupuncture on fertility.
Jane is author of the acclaimed Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine, published in 2004 and 2014 by Elsevier Science and now in its 7th reprint in English, and several other languages.
She is co-author of the Clinical Handbook of Internal Medicine in 3 Volumes, published in 2000 by University of Western Sydney and by Eastland Press in 2018.
