About Graham Pinn

Graham Pinn was born in England and educated at Charing Cross Hospital in London. On qualification he joined the Airforce and developed "the Travel Bug." He completed his specialist training as a physician whilst in the Airforce and after leaving moved to New Zealand. After some years in a district hospital in New Plymouth the travel bug struck again and he set off around the world. Following stints in the Middle East, Germany, the South Pacific, the Seychelles he settled in Australia and worked for 10years as senior physician at the Nambour Hospital on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. In his twilight years he has again set off travelling and is now working once more in the Middle East. The interest in herbal medicine developed during his travels with time in third world environments and exposure to the local treatment options. Traditional treatment has become an increasing interest over the last 15 years, culminating in a series of articles for the Australian General Practitioners Journal. These articles have now been revised and updated as the source of this book.
