The Year of the Black Water Snake 2013                                                                                                        

The Year of the Dragon - 2012 marked the start of the Australia-wide registration of Chinese Medicine practitioners
. This has raised the standard of services being offered and ensure that consumers are protected against substandard practice. By early 2013, Rosemarie is registered with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) and will be a member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA). If you have a private health insurance policy that covers acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine, rebates are available. A list will be made available on this site with the names of all the participating insurance companies.

There is an increasing acceptance and use of acupuncture even in mainstream circles. This has been facilitated by the larger volume of scientific studies which substantiate the efficacy of acupuncture, particularly in the treatment of pain.This is also evidenced by the fact that the majority of private health providers now offer packages which allow rebates for acupuncture and/or chinese herbal medicine services.

As more scientific evidence becomes available, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine becomes more acceptable and used more widely in the community. See the latest ABC broadcast of the use of acupuncture for treating depression.

It seems like celebrities are also turning to Chinese medicine to look after themselves. See the latest on Penelope Cruz's use of auriculotherapy - seeds in the ears, which is an integral part of acupuncture treatment. It is used extensively for treating addiction including alcohol, tobacco, speed, cocaine and heroin withdrawal, as well as for weight loss and eating disorders.

There is also an increasing use of Chinese Medicine, both acupuncture and herbal medicine for supporting cancer treatments. It is used to eliminate side effects like nausea, dryness, lack of appetite and to prevent damage to red & white blood cells during treatment.

FLU ?? - Dont suffer for weeks and feel miserable - use acupuncture and Chinese herbs to knock off the virus before it debilitates you.

Many of my clients do not know that Chinese Medicine is used very effectively to treat influenzas whch result in severe respiratory symptoms. If treated immediately, herbs can effect an improvement within 2-3 days, hence preventing the condition from progressing deeper into the lungs. It is common knowledge today that antibiotics are ineffective in getting rid of influenza bugs. Chinese herbal formulas have been used for centuries by millions of people to effectively deal with the symptoms of flu - fatigue, aching, nasal congestion, sore throat and cough which can progress to pneumonia and bronchitis if left untreated. The use of herbs along with plenty of rest and adequate hydration can get a person back on their feet. Leaving it untreated and not resting is what prolongs the attack, and results in recurrence of the flu when a person is run down. There is also a very old formula - Jade Screen formula (Yu ping feng san - a specific combination of herbs) which is good for enhancing the immunity - I use this every time I travel by air or when I am in contact with sick people so as to prevent the occurence of influenza.
