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.

5 May 2016 at 6:51am

By Philip O'Connor (Reuters) - Fighters need to learn more about the risks of concussion, especially during training, to protect against brain injury, a medic leading a long-term study into head trauma said. With two professional bouts marred by high-profile head injuries in the past two months, neurologist Dr. Charles Bernick of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, Nevada, said combat sports could never be made completely safe. "Educate yourself on concussion and head injury," Bernick says, when asked for his best advice.

5 May 2016 at 6:47am

By Megan Rowling BARCELONA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Médecins Sans Frontières is pulling out of the first ever World Humanitarian Summit, saying the U.N.-sponsored meeting will not hold states to account for their role in conflicts or pressure them to abide by the laws of war. "We no longer have any hope that the World Humanitarian Summit will address the weaknesses in humanitarian action and emergency response, particularly in conflict areas or epidemic situations," said the international medical charity, also known as Doctors Without Borders.

5 May 2016 at 6:45am

Sanofi said it could raise its proposed $9.3 billion deal to buy Medivation if the U.S. cancer drugmaker engaged in talks, threatening to go directly to shareholders to oust the board if not. Sanofi Chief Executive Olivier Brandicourt wrote in a letter to the board of Medivation published on Thursday that the transaction was a priority for the French drugmaker and it was committed to seeing it through. The CEO added Sanofi had spoken to top shareholders in the target company and the proposal had "overwhelming" support.

U.S. regulators ban e-cigarette, cigar sales to people under 18
5 May 2016 at 6:45am

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday banned sales of all e-cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco and hookah tobacco to people under age 18 and ordered manufacturers to submit these products to the regulatory agency for review. The FDA's regulation had been highly anticipated after the agency issued a proposed rule two years ago on how to regulate the $3 billion e-cigarette industry and these other products. The FDA said in a statement the regulations will bring these products in line with how it oversees other tobacco products such as cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and roll-your-own tobacco.

FDA brings e-cigarettes under federal authority
5 May 2016 at 6:39am

Japanese drugmaker Daiichi wins damages from former Ranbaxy owners
5 May 2016 at 6:13am

The former owners of Indian drugmaker Ranbaxy Laboratories have been ordered by an arbitration court to pay damages worth 25.63 billion rupees ($385 million) to Japan's Daiichi Sankyo Co Ltd, they said on Thursday. RHC Holding, a company owned by one-time Ranbaxy controlling shareholder and billionaire Malvinder Singh, also said in a statement that the former owners were considering challenging the verdict. Daiichi, which bought control of Ranbaxy in 2008 from a shareholder group led by brothers Malvinder and Shivinder, said in 2013 it believed former shareholders of the company had hidden information about U.S. regulatory probes into Ranbaxy.

New Apple app launches in Britain that pays people to get fit
5 May 2016 at 6:09am

By Eric Auchard FRANKFURT (Reuters) - A free smartphone app that will pay people to be physically active launches on Wednesday in Britain, with users given digital "sweatcoins" depending on how many steps they take that can be exchanged for rewards or traded like money. It's the latest initiative in an emerging fitness economy that includes all manner of monitoring devices, apps that reward activity with vouchers and even experiments in offering cheap insurance to people who can demonstrate they exercise. Sweatcoin aims to differentiate itself by using complex software to measure movement and location to prevent cheating, and by using the technology behind virtual currency bitcoin to manage transactions.

In Benin, a new stove turns rice waste into clean fuel
5 May 2016 at 5:59am
By Busani Bafana COTONOU, Benin (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Naman Abibate's business is hard to miss. A towering pile of neatly arranged logs, collected by her husband from a forest near their village home, sits at the side of the busy Cotonou-to-Niger highway, north of Benin. Rice is a staple food in Benin, and parboiling the grain requires a lot of heat, which means a lot of wood.

Merck sales disappoint as Januvia, Remicade fall short
5 May 2016 at 5:49am

Merck & Co Inc on Thursday reported lower-than-expected quarterly revenue, hurt by disappointing sales of its Januvia diabetes treatment and Remicade arthritis drug. Combined sales of Januvia and a related combination medicine called Janumet edged up 1 percent to $1.41 billion, $30 million shy of Wall Street expectations. Demand for the drugs, Merck's biggest franchise and former sparkplugs for company growth, has waned due to new competition, including from Eli Lilly & Co's Jardiance and other members of a family of medicines called SGLT-2 inhibitors.

Watchdog finds much larger Catholic influence on U.S. hospitals
5 May 2016 at 5:25am
A growing number of U.S. hospitals are now owned or affiliated with Catholic health institutions that restrict procedures such as sterilizations or abortion, according to patients' rights watchdog MergerWatch. Between 2001 and 2016, the number of Catholic-owned or affiliated hospitals rose 22 percent to 548 from 449, most of them nonprofit facilities, MergerWatch said in a report released on Thursday. While adherence varies, many of these hospitals follow the directives of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops which prohibits on religious grounds procedures that can interfere with conception or that terminate pregnancy.

British tabloid paper closes after just two months
5 May 2016 at 4:41am

By Kate Holton LONDON (Reuters) - The first national newspaper to launch in Britain in 30 years is to close after just two months, its publisher Trinity Mirror said on Thursday, after it failed to find readers in a print market decimated by the growth of the internet. Instead, it sold fewer than 40,000 daily copies in a country of around 65 million people, prompting Trinity Mirror to cut its losses and admit it had overestimated the demand. "We have tried everything we could but sadly we just haven't reached the sales figures we needed to make it work financially," editor Alison Phillips said in a statement.

5 May 2016 at 4:24am

By Martinne Geller LONDON (Reuters) - Consumer goods group Reckitt Benckiser's Chief Executive apologized on Thursday for its South Korean unit's sales of water sterilizers for humidifier devices which have been linked to deadly lung injuries.

Failure to tackle age-related spending may damage credit ratings: S&P
5 May 2016 at 4:12am

Facing aging populations and ballooning healthcare and pension bills, governments must reform welfare systems or face a deterioration in their credit ratings, Standard & Poor's said in a report on Thursday. The ratings agency looked at 58 nations to assess the economic consequences of demographic changes and concluded that unless countries implemented reforms, more than a quarter of them could have "speculative-grade", or junk, ratings by 2050. "Over the last five to six years, many sovereigns have introduced structural reforms, and at the same time they have been reducing deficits, which widened very significantly in the aftermath of the financial crisis in 2008," said Marko Mrsnik, director of sovereign ratings and one of the report's authors.

Israeli general assailed for Nazi comparison on Holocaust memorial day
5 May 2016 at 3:25am

By Jeffrey Heller JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's deputy military chief suggested in a Holocaust memorial speech that there were signs of Nazi-like behavior in Israeli society, drawing condemnation from two cabinet ministers on Thursday before he backtracked on the remarks. Major-General Yair Golan's speech, at a ceremony on Wednesday, would have touched a nerve at any time in a nation that vehemently rejects accusations by its fiercest critics that its treatment of Palestinians is comparable with the oppression long suffered by Jews. Wearing his red paratroop beret, Golan said at the gathering to honor the six million Jews killed by Nazi Germany that the annual remembrance day should also lead Israelis to deep soul-searching about "how we, here and now, treat the stranger".

5 May 2016 at 3:24am
There's a common misconception by younger generations that getting older sucks. I am not going to lie, there are some physical challenges but aging today isn't like it was 50 to 100 years ago.
