NEVILLE S. WILSON
He gave up flying in response to a call to Christian mission and medical services, and qualified as an ordained Methodist Minister and then a Medical doctor, and served his Internship in the No. 2 Military Hospital in South Africa, where he developed an early interest in general surgery and trauma.
He then served as a Mission Doctor for 3 years at the Bethesda Mission Hospital , Zululand, in a remote part of southern Africa, where he gained invaluable experience in surgery, obstetrics and rural medicine.
He underwent further Vocational Training at the Cecilia Makiwane Hospital in East London where he spent years rotating through medicine, paediatrics, obstetrics, gynaecology, general surgery, eye surgery and orthopoedics. During this period he continued his post-graduate studies, followed by several years in Private Family Practice in East London, South Africa.
Neville is a graduate of Rhodes University, University of Cape Town Medical School, The College of Medicine, S.A., and the Pretoria Medical School, and is a holder of several Diplomas in a variety of fields.

While working and studying in Canada he obtained a Diploma in Creative Writing.
One of his many interests is Preventative Cardiology and the role of Nutrition in clinical medicine. (Nutrigenomics).
After leaving South Africa Neville accepted appointments in AUSTRALIA, where he worked as a GP/Surgeon in the Northern Territory, and later as a doctor in a Queensland rural hospital, followed by a 5 year period in CANADA ,working in private practices with hospital privileges .
While in Canada, he joined the Medical Unit of the University of Manitoba , and served as a Fly-in-Physician, flying to isolated communities in Northern Manitoba. There, living and working amongst the Cree and Ojibwa tribes he gained invaluable insights into their culture, disease patterns and healing arts.
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.
“He believes that the future of medicine lies in the field of Nutrigenomics and Orthomolecular Medicine, which explores the science of nutritional regulation of genetic expression for health and disease.
The application of these principles is already visible in the field of nano-technology, where the transfer of molecular energy from microscopic nutrients to human cells can be effected via non-transdermal skin patches applied to pre-determined sites on the body.
These futuristic applications hold great promise for the goal of non-pharmalogical interventions in the pursuit of optimal health and wellness”
