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.

Valeant is sued over Philidor ties, alleged racketeering
29 Aug 2016 at 2:41pm

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc was sued on Monday by buyers of its drugs, who accused the Canadian company of racketeering by forcing them to pay exorbitant prices. The proposed class-action complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan on behalf of unionized New York City police detectives and hotel workers, regarding Valeant's ties to the now defunct specialty pharmacy Philidor RX Services LLC. The plaintiffs accused Valeant of violating the U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, and seeks compensatory and triple damages for U.S. health plans and others that bought its drugs from January 2013 to October 2015.

Mylan to launch generic EpiPen at half the price of original
29 Aug 2016 at 2:39pm

The company reduced the out-of-pocket costs of EpiPen for some patients on Thursday, but kept the list price at about $600, a move that U.S. lawmakers and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said was not enough. Mylan said on Monday it expected to launch the generic product "in several weeks", an unusual move considering the branded bestseller is still patent protected and major rival treatments have failed to get regulatory clearances. "Our decision to launch a generic alternative to EpiPen is an extraordinary commercial response," Chief Executive Heather Bresch said Monday.

Adult mosquitoes can pass Zika to their offspring: U.S. study
29 Aug 2016 at 2:16pm

By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - Adult female mosquitoes can pass the Zika virus along to their offspring, U.S. researchers said on Monday, a finding that makes clear the need for pesticide programs that kill both adult mosquitoes and their eggs. The findings, published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, show that as with many related viruses, including dengue and yellow fever, Zika can be transmitted from female mosquitoes to their offspring. Dr. Robert Tesh of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, a study co-author, said the fact that the virus can be passed along to mosquito offspring makes Zika harder to control.

EpiPen maker to offer generic amid price flap
29 Aug 2016 at 1:40pm

The drugmaker Mylan NV said Monday it would offer a generic version of the EpiPen, the company's second move in a week to contain public outrage over perceived price gouging. A five-fold increase in the price of the life-saving epinephrine injectors over a decade drew stinging rebukes last week, with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and others demanding the company drop its prices. In a statement, Mylan Chief Executive Heather Bresch said the generic injector version would offer "a long-term solution to further reduce costs and ease the burden and complexity of the process on the patient." Bresch is the daughter of Democrat US Senator Joe Manchin.

Immediate removal from play tied to faster recovery from concussion
29 Aug 2016 at 12:12pm
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - High school athletes who stop playing immediately after they experience a concussion take about half as long to recover as those who continue to play, according to a new study. ?This was one of the first studies to tie-in a recovery consequence to staying in the game and playing with a concussion,? said lead author Robert J. Elbin of the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Continuing to play with a concussion may worsen the injury, and now there?s evidence that it also keeps you from returning to play for a longer period.

House Committee requests EpiPen documents from Mylan
29 Aug 2016 at 11:55am

(Reuters) - U.S. representatives Jason Chaffetz and Elijah Cummings of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform sent a letter to Mylan NV Chief Executive Heather Bresch on Monday asking for documents and communications related to the fast-increasing price of allergy auto-injector EpiPens. Mylan said earlier it would launch the first generic version of EpiPen for $300, half the price of the branded product, in the drugmaker's second step in less than a week to counter a backlash over the product's steep price.

Overspecialization, overtraining up injuries and burnout in kids sports
29 Aug 2016 at 10:32am
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Focusing only on one sport, year-round, can increase kids? risk of injury and burnout, according to a clinical report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Authors of the guidance document, Dr. Joel S. Brenner and the AAP Council on Sports Medicine and Fitness, advise pediatricians and parents to keep in mind that the primary focus of sports for young athletes should be to have fun and learn lifelong physical activity skills. Playing multiple sports, at least until puberty, decreases the risk of injury, stress and burnout, they add.

Republicans ask Clinton Foundation to produce correspondence
29 Aug 2016 at 10:18am

The Republican National Committee asked the charity of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's family on Monday to produce all correspondence its staff had with the U.S. State Department while Clinton served as America's most senior diplomat. Clinton's campaign to win the Nov. 8 presidential election has been dogged by criticism that donors to the Clinton Foundation may have expected special favors from the U.S. government in return. "The Clinton Foundation can play a vital role in filling important gaps in the public record by demonstrating its commitment to transparency and making public all correspondence its officials had with the State Department during Secretary Clinton's tenure," Reince Priebus, the RNC chairman, said in a letter to the foundation's president, Donna Shalala.

Transplant recipients who resume smoking have shorter survival
29 Aug 2016 at 9:33am
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) ? For recipients of an organ transplant, smoking is even more dangerous than for the rest of the population, a recent analysis shows. The review of studies on solid organ transplant patients found that more than 10 percent resume smoking after the operation. Transplant patients must remain on immunosuppressive medication for life to keep their bodies from rejecting the organ, which is why they already have an increased risk of cancer, infections and heart disease, researchers write in the journal Transplantation.

Docs facing more parents who refuse to vaccinate kids
29 Aug 2016 at 9:05am
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - Pediatricians are increasingly encountering parents who don't want their children immunized against infectious diseases, and a leading medical organization wants to help them address parents' fears and questions about vaccines. The American Academy of Pediatrics found in a 2006 survey of its members that about three quarters had encountered parents who refused to have their children vaccinated. Parents' attitudes toward vaccines are changing over time, said Dr. Kathryn Edwards, lead author of an AAP statement published Monday in Pediatrics.

Diabetes linked to memory decline in older adults
29 Aug 2016 at 9:04am
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Older adults with poorly controlled diabetes may struggle with what?s known as episodic memory, the ability to recall specific events experienced recently or long ago, a study suggests. Researchers examined results from a series of four memory tests done from 2006 to 2012 for 950 older adults with diabetes and 3,469 elderly people without the disease. The participants who had diabetes and elevated blood sugar performed worse on the first round of memory tests at the start of the study and also experienced a bigger decline in memory function by the end of the study.

More U.S. counties to see Obamacare marketplace monopoly: analysis
29 Aug 2016 at 8:53am

By Trevor Hunnicutt NEW YORK (Reuters) - Nearly a third of U.S. counties likely will be served by only one insurer that participates in an Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace in 2017, according to an analysis published on Sunday by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The 31 percent of U.S. counties that will have just a single option of insurers within the ACA's exchanges would represent an increase from 7 percent this year, the nonpartisan group found. Despite sharing a namesake, the Kaiser Family Foundation is not associated with healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
