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.

Why Superpotent Synthetic Opioids Are 'Crazy Dangerous,' DEA Says
27 Sep 2016 at 9:15am

As the opioid epidemic has continued to grow in multiple parts of the country, extremely potent synthetic forms of the painkillers ? especially fentanyl and carfentanil ? have become more common among everyday users, according to U.S. authorities. Last week, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) issued a public warning to law enforcement about the safety risks of taking or interacting with synthetic opioids, especially carfentanil and fentanyl. "Carfentanil is surfacing in more and more communities," DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg said in a statement on Friday.

Appeals court blocks Pennsylvania hospital merger
27 Sep 2016 at 8:53am
Reversing a lower court ruling, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ordered a preliminary injunction against the combination of Penn State Hershey Medical Center and PinnacleHealth System. By a 3-0 vote, the appeals court said the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania would likely be able to show that the merger would harm competition, and could boost prices for patients.

Engineered blood vessels grow in lambs
27 Sep 2016 at 8:36am

In a hopeful development for children born with congenital heart defects, scientists said Tuesday they had built artificial blood vessels which grew unaided when implanted into lambs, right into adulthood. If repeated in humans, such grafts would spare afflicted children the need for repeated surgeries, an expert team from the University of Minnesota reported in the journal Nature Communications. "This might be the first time we have an 'off-the-shelf' material that doctors can implant in a patient, and it can grow in the body," study co-author Robert Tranquillo said in a statement.

Many Haiti orphanages run by child traffickers, says J.K. Rowling's charity
27 Sep 2016 at 8:24am
By Lin Taylor LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Four in five children living in Haiti's orphanages have at least one living parent and are sold or given to the homes on false promises of an education or medical care, according to a charity founded by British author J.K. Rowling. London-based charity Lumos said many orphanages in the poor Caribbean nation were run by enterprising traffickers who starved and beat children to attract sympathy and money from well-intentioned donors. "When people hear the word 'orphanage', they imagine that it's a good thing or they imagine that it's necessary," Lumos Chief Executive Georgette Mulheir told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on Tuesday.

Music therapy may help kids cope with immunization shots
27 Sep 2016 at 8:21am
By Linda Thrasybule (Reuters Health) - When little kids need to get a painful injection, music therapy can help them get through the procedure, a new study suggests. Children who received music therapy during a routine immunization visit were less stressed and better able to cope with the procedure than those who didn?t receive music therapy, and their parents were less stressed, too, the study found. ?Although it certainly won?t eliminate a child?s pain or distress, using music to distract them could help them focus less on the pain, which can improve their perception of getting shots,? said Olivia Yinger, the study?s author and a music therapist from the University of Kentucky in Lexington.

27 Sep 2016 at 8:14am

Amgen's multiple myeloma drug falls short in new-patient study
27 Sep 2016 at 8:06am

Amgen Inc said on Tuesday its multiple myeloma drug, Kyprolis, did not fare better than Takeda Pharmaceutical Co Ltd's older therapy Velcade in a study involving patients who had not yet been treated for the disease. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has already approved Kyprolis for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma who have previously undergone treatment. Patients treated with Kyprolis did not show a statistically significant improvement in slowing the cancer's progression compared with those given Velcade in the late-stage study.

WHO, Red Cross say urgent to evacuate wounded from east Aleppo
27 Sep 2016 at 7:58am
By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - The World Health Organization (WHO) and Red Cross called on Tuesday for dozens of sick and wounded people in the embattled eastern part of the Syrian city of Aleppo to be evacuated through safe corridors for treatment. The Syrian military, helped by Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias and the Russian air force, launched a campaign to take rebel-held eastern Aleppo last week, where the WHO said only 35 doctors remained to care for more than 250,000 people. Syrian pro-government forces attacked the opposition-held sector of Aleppo on several fronts on Tuesday, the biggest ground assault yet in a campaign that has destroyed a U.S.-backed ceasefire.

Asia's poor choking on filthy air
27 Sep 2016 at 6:46am

Polluted air is a "public health emergency", the World Health Organization said Tuesday, adding nine out of 10 people globally breathe bad air that is blamed for more than six million deaths a year. Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific region -- including China -- are the hardest hit, the data showed. South Asia is also badly affected, with the WHO saying poor air quality is responsible for the deaths of more than 600,000 people in India and 37,000 people in Bangladesh every year.

Halting school meals in Mali could keep thousands of children out of class: U.N
27 Sep 2016 at 5:50am

By Kieran Guilbert DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Taking away school meals from 180,000 pupils going back to class in Mali, where insecurity has closed schools in the north, may deprive even more children of an education, the U.N. World Food Programme (WFP) said on Tuesday. Halting a school meals programme due to a lack of funding will leave these children, in around 1,000 schools across Mali, without a guaranteed healthy meal each day, the WFP said.

Beware the air we breathe
27 Sep 2016 at 5:31am

Health-damaging atmospheric pollutants, which the World Health Organization warned Tuesday affected nine out of every 10 people, originate mainly from industry, heating and transport. Chronic exposure has been linked not only to respiratory ailments, but also cancers, heart disease and stroke.

27 Sep 2016 at 4:44am

(Reuters) - Bristol-Myers Squibb Co said on Tuesday it would evaluate the use of its blockbuster cancer immunotherapy Opdivo in combination with an experimental drug from Nektar Therapeutics to treat multiple cancers. The collaboration involves Nektar's NKTR-214, an experimental immuno-stimulatory therapy designed to increase the expression of PD-1 on immune cells.

Paris climate targets to cost Asia $300 billion a year, but will help save li...
27 Sep 2016 at 4:42am
By Beh Lih Yi JAKARTA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Developing economies in Asia will have to spend $300 billion a year until 2050 to meet targets set by the Paris climate deal, but can expect to save thousands of lives and avoid worsening poverty if they shift to low-carbon growth, research showed on Tuesday. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) said the economic returns of spending on the Paris climate targets far outweighed the costs in the developing region - one of the most vulnerable to climate change and disasters like typhoons and flooding. The Manila-based bank's definition of developing Asia comprises 45 of the ADB's member countries in Asia Pacific including Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
