Interests and passion are inspired by our interesting patients; all of our patients are interesting.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is well studied in the treatment of a variety of diseases.
If you are interested in whether acupuncture might have been shown to benefit your type of illness, check out this lengthy document from the WHO (World Health Organisation),
particularly, section 3. Pg. 33 Titled: 'Diseases and disorders that can be treated with acupuncture'.
ACUPUNCTURE: REVIEW AND ANALYSIS OF REPORTS ON CONTROLLED CLINICAL TRIALS.
While we have experience in the treatment of many of these illnesses, and a handful that are not yet recognised due to lack of research, our personal focus at Cosm Natural Health is based around our most inspiring victories as practitioners and our favourite and most interesting patients.

You might find that you have a collection of these symptoms or diagnoses and could feel overwhelmed on which to focus on initially.
Holistic medicine works on multiple systems and it is not uncommon to find that these illnesses are part of a singular cause.
Chinese Medicine diagnosis works on subtle pattern differentiation, meaning that if your body gave you an otherwise un-notable sign, be it a twitch in the eye or a tingle in your toe, we want to hear about it.
So don't feel as though you need to leave out any information when talking to your practitioner. Every little part counts towards the whole picture.
