George studied at Oxford University and graduated with an MA in Biological Sciences. During his studies at Oxford he developed severe digestive illness. After experiencing no benefit from conventional approaches for this illness, he trained in traditional Chinese medicine at universities and colleges in the U.K., China and Australia, developing a special interest in food and traditional diet for health, and a deep appreciation for the value of traditional healthcare.
He now lives in Winscombe, North Somerset and runs busy clinics in Bristol and Winscombe offering acupuncture, herbs and nutritional advice. He has also taught regularly at the University of Bristol Medical School, the City of Bristol College and the College of Naturopathic Medicine.
