NEVILLE WILSON, BA., MB.,ChB., D.OBS.(COG) SA., D.FAM. MED., M.Sc., DNH.

A former South African Airforce pilot with experience working as a medic in diverse ethnic and remote communities in Africa, Australia and Canada.

Dr Wilson is a Diplomate of the College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of South Africa, is Certified in Acupuncture, Advanced Trauma Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support and holds a Diploma as a Natural Health Consultant. He has a Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Exercise. One of his many interests is Preventative Cardiology and the role of Nutrition in clinical medicine (Nutrigenomics).
Neville believes that the prevailing medical paradigm is severely limited by its singular focus on disease, rather than on opportunities, and the potential, for creating health and promoting wellness.
Dr Wilson works with a significant number of patients suffering with their thyroid health and is one of the few GPs in Ireland regularly working with natural desiccated thyroid and nutritional protocols to help patients back to health.
