Born into the family of an eminent medical practitioner in Australia laid the foundation for Graham's interest in the human body, its function, and the many health related subjects.
Most of the formative years of his life before five years of age he spent in a wheelchair due to a hip disorder. He would accompany his father to hospitals and calls and became very interested in all things of a medical nature. Although Graham had the best medical treatment available back in the 1950's for his hip, it was not able to be healed by western medicine. Surprisingly it was the Chinese medical treatment approach that eventually cured his problem. Consequently his medical awareness began at this stage and became the seed for further knowledge fertilized later in life to blossom into an insatiable thirst for an understanding of the function of the human body in health and sickness in both the western medicine and the Chinese medicine models.
Graham's formal education includes the health sciences as well as Chinese medicine. He has a Ph.D in Health Sciences and degree in Chinese medicine. He began clinical practice in 1979 and has continued with specialization in Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and energy medicine. He has published books and websites, and lectured on various health topics as a result of the following influences throughout his life:
*Exposure and influence as a child to Chinese healing systems involving medicine and exercise
*Upbringing and influence from living in a family of western medical practitioners
*Passion and interest in health and medicine
*Education, study and research in both western and Chinese medicine
*Ph.D. doctoral research and thesis: "Energy as the Link Between Chinese and Western Medicine"
*Clinical practice as an acupuncture and energy medicine specialist in Australia, United Kingdom and Hong Kong where he has been living since the mid 1980's
His aim is not only to write health books but to provide something different that is useful, practical and relevant to people seeking to understand their health challenges and who wish to participate in the improvement and maintenance of their own health and wellness.
Graham's approach to the writing of his latest eBooks series ("27 Most Important Health Questions") is based on his own surveys of what people actually want to know about various health topics. He typically compiles over a 1,000 questions on the health topic and then narrows them down to what he considers are the 27 most important health questions about that topic.
Why 27? Because he believes there is an optimal point at which a carefully selected number of questions can answer most of what people want to know, and is manageable and quick to convey the knowledge and understanding that people are seeking. It is difficult to fully give this knowledge in less than 27, and any more makes the topic too large and complex for the reader's rapid comprehension. The information in his eBooks is provided in a short and useful quick-read format and provides a broad overview of the topic, its problems, and the way forward.
