True Health Acupuncture Provides A Natural Approach to Pediatric Medicine

(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 13, 2012 ) Arvada, Colorado -- Kira Murphy, licensed acupuncturist in Denver, and founder of True Health Acupuncture now offers the holistic treatment of traditional Chinese medicine to children and babies. When a child gets sick, the first thing a parent does is run to the pediatrician. In many cases, the little one is pumped full of over-the-counter medications and prescription pharmaceuticals, which can potentially have serious side effects. Even Western doctors agree that a child often heals best using natural means, such as increasing fluids, resting, and taking a warm bath. As evidence continues to mount concerning the negative effects of medications on a child’s development, parents are starting to turn to holistic, Oriental medicine.

Kira Murphy MSOM and licensed acupuncturist offers pediatric medicine to patients in Boulder, Denver, and the surrounding areas. The founder of True Health Acupuncture practices Oriental medicine and acupuncture, which are safe, effective forms of healing that have a clinical history dating back thousands of years. Kira Murphy says "there are no side effects and treatments can be used to lessen the need for medication or even used as a form of integrative medicine, combining both Western and Oriental techniques."

Murphy explains babies and children alike, can benefit from pediatric acupuncture, Shonishin, which is a light tapping method, herbs, massage, or moxa. She says, "children often respond more quickly and positively to treatments than adults, as they do not have stored illnesses due to a poor diet, lack of physical activity, stress, and injury." Oriental medicine helps to bring a child’s body and mind into balance, while also eliminating ailments from the system to prevent chronic illness in the future.

Treatment with Kira Murphy of True Health Acupuncture begins with a thorough consultation, including health history and a physical exam. This allows Murphy to determine the root of the symptoms, understand the child as a whole, and provide a customized treatment for the best therapeutic effect. Needles may or may not be used and if they are necessary, only two to six tiny, painless needles will be inserted into specific acupuncture points. The needles are placed shallowly and removed immediately. Shonishin involves a light tapping method along the meridians to gently stimulate the points. Chinese herbs in the form of pediatric tinctures may also be prescribed to further healing. Most children respond to treatment quickly and rarely notice the use of needles.

Influential Texas panel recommends halt to use of bite-mark evidence
11 Feb 2016 at 4:00pm
An influential Texas scientific panel recommended on Thursday that bite-mark analysis not be admissible as evidence in courts, a decision experts said could lead judicial systems in other states to exclude it too. The Texas Forensic Science Commission panel recommended a moratorium on bite-mark evidence until there is science to support its admissibility. Bite-mark evidence has been used in U.S. courts for decades, most often to identify suspects in murders, sexual assaults and child abuse through marks on the flesh of victims.

Airports boost efforts to stop spread of Zika: UN agency
11 Feb 2016 at 2:42pm

Airports are stepping up efforts to reduce populations of mosquitoes that transmit the Zika virus in order to prevent its spread, the UN aviation agency said Thursday. "The management of the outbreak is currently focused on reducing the populations of the Aedes mosquito that transmit the virus at airports (vector control)," the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) said in a statement. Vector control refers to the spraying of insecticides or other pest control measures.


Weight-loss surgery after age 35 linked to survival benefit
11 Feb 2016 at 2:16pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - Obese people who undergo a certain kind of weight-loss operation after age 35 may live longer than obese people of the same age who don't have the surgery, a study suggests. The findings, reported in JAMA Surgery, show that the so-called gastric bypass operation is associated with a mortality benefit along with its better-known "metabolic" benefits, said lead author Lance Davidson, of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Past research has found weight loss surgeries are tied to reduced deaths from any cause, cancer and heart disease.


Brazil confirms third Zika-linked death
11 Feb 2016 at 2:02pm

Brasília (AFP) - Health authorities said Thursday they have identified a third death in Brazil linked to the Zika virus, but it is not clear if the disease was the sole cause. The latest case "was communicated to the World Health Organization [WHO] and we are studying it in more depth because we have just received the information," Health Minister Marcelo Castro said during a news conference. "It's not possible at this point to say that Zika was the sole cause of death," he said.


Textile workers at higher risk for rheumatoid arthritis
11 Feb 2016 at 1:30pm
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Breathing textile dust on the job is linked to an almost tripled risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, an immune system disorder that causes debilitating swelling and pain in the joints, a Malaysian study suggests. While smoking is a known risk factor for this disease, the findings add to evidence suggesting that environmental factors could trigger rheumatoid arthritis in some people, the researchers note in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases. The investigators suspect that textile dust might cause changes in the lung tissues, and those changes might trigger the immune response that leads to rheumatoid arthritis in individuals with genetic risk factors for the disease, said senior study author Dr. Camilla Bengtsson of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Convicted al Qaeda supporter loses U.S. medical malpractice trial
11 Feb 2016 at 12:04pm
The U.S. government owes nothing to a New York man, now in prison for aiding al Qaeda, who sought $7 million in damages for alleged medical malpractice that occurred after he was taken into custody, a federal judge ruled on Thursday. U.S. District Judge Gregory Woods in Manhattan said Wesam El-Hanafi, 40, presented no evidence at his malpractice trial showing that the prison system failed to diagnose and treat a blood clot in his leg in a timely fashion. "The plaintiff did not meet his legal burden of establishing any breach of duty of care or that such a breach was the proximate cause to his injury," Woods said in court.

Evidence grows for Zika role in brain damage
11 Feb 2016 at 11:03am

Evidence piled up Thursday implicating the Zika virus in a surge of brain damaged babies in Latin America, with two reports of the disease found in the neural tissue of affected infants. Scientists in Slovenia reported in the New England Journal of Medicine they had found traces of Zika virus in the brain of an aborted foetus with severe microcephaly, a condition that causes unusually small skulls and brains, leading to death or disability. The infant's mother, from Europe, had likely been infected with Zika in Brazil, which has borne the brunt of the virus outbreak and simultaneous microcephaly surge in Latin America and the Caribbean, they wrote.
