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.

Egypt postpones Al Jazeera retrial verdict to Aug. 29
2 Aug 2015 at 11:25am

An Egyptian court on Sunday postponed delivering its verdict in the retrial of three Al Jazeera TV journalists, a decision a defense lawyer said was to avoid bad publicity during a visit by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and other dignitaries. The journalists deny the charges and Egypt's high court ordered a retrial in January. Mohamed Fahmy, a naturalized Canadian who has given up his Egyptian citizenship, and Egyptian Baher Mohamed were released on bail in February after more than a year in custody.



Merkel's German conservatives set sights on absolute majority
2 Aug 2015 at 9:55am

By Paul Carrel BERLIN (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel faced pressure from conservative allies on Sunday to run for a fourth term in 2017 after an opinion poll showed they could win an absolute majority if an election were held next week. Horst Seehofer, head of the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) sister party to Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), quickly took up the idea of the conservatives winning an absolute majority in 2017. "I believe that is possible with a Chancellor Angela Merkel," he told ARD television.

He is the third Memphis officer to be shot and killed in just over four years. ...

Drug needle exchanges gain ground after Indiana HIV outbreak
2 Aug 2015 at 5:13am
Since Indiana opened its first state-run needle exchange last spring, Tara Burton, 25, has made weekly visits to turn over needles she used to shoot Opana, a prescription painkiller, up her track-marked arm. The one-story clinic in rural Scott County, Indiana, marks a sea change in states where conservative lawmakers had staunchly opposed old needles-for-new exchanges. An HIV epidemic in Indiana and a rise in Hepatitis C cases in Kentucky helped push those states to pass laws allowing communities to open needle exchanges.

China to expand medical insurance for major illnesses
1 Aug 2015 at 8:14pm
China will expand medical insurance to cover all critical illnesses for all urban and rural residents by the end of the year, the cabinet said on Sunday, the latest step in a plan to fix a healthcare system that has sparked public discontent. The State Council said 50 percent of the medical costs will be covered by insurance in a bid to "more effectively reduce the burden of medical expenses", in a statement posted on the government's website. President Xi Jinping's government has touted access to affordable healthcare as a key platform of his administration, underscoring the importance of meeting the needs of the nearly 1.4 billion people, many of whom have often complained of large out-of-pocket expenses due to low levels of insurance coverage.

Four dead, 65 sick in New York City Legionnaires' disease outbreak
1 Aug 2015 at 1:49pm
By Katie Reilly NEW YORK (Reuters) - A deadly outbreak of Legionnaires' disease, a severe type of pneumonia, has now killed four people and sickened 65 in the Bronx section of New York City since July 10, New York City health officials said on Saturday. This wave of Legionnaires', which officials have called unusual, is now more than five times the number of cases recorded in the last outbreak, in which 12 people in the Bronx fell ill in December 2014. The disease is caused by Legionella, a bacteria found in certain plumbing systems, including hot tubs, humidifiers, cooling towers and hot water tanks.


Fetal tissue research declining, still important
1 Aug 2015 at 11:31am

By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - A political battle over the use of fetal tissue in medical research has been reinvigorated by the release of undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood officials. Newer, less-controversial technologies, including the ?reprogramming? of adult skin cells to create specific types of stem cells, have rendered fetal tissue less central - though still important - to medical research, they said. Dr. Robert Lanza, chief scientific officer of Advanced Cell Technology, said that much of tissue needed for research "can now be generated in the laboratory." At Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, for instance, only about 10 out of 8,000 active research protocols involve fetal tissue, according to an official at the Harvard-affiliated hospital who asked to remain anonymous.



NYC Doctor, Who Survived Ebola, Says Experimental Vaccine Could Be 'A Way For...
1 Aug 2015 at 6:44am

A New York City doctor, who made headlines after he was diagnosed with Ebola, said he hoped an experimental vaccine could be ?a way forward? for a region decimated by the deadly virus. Craig Spencer, an emergency room physician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, made headlines last year when he contracted Ebola after treating patients for the disease in Guinea. After his treatment Spencer returned to Guinea to treat patients and he got to see firsthand how the vaccine trial affected patients and health care workers.



Kenya mulls granting refuge to chimps from Ebola-hit Liberia
1 Aug 2015 at 2:34am

By Edith Honan NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenyan officials said on Friday they were considering conservationists' appeals to give two baby chimpanzees, rescued from possible traffickers in ebola-hit Liberia, sanctuary in a Kenyan reserve but public health fears were holding up transfer. Conservationists believe the animals had been victims of trafficking that sent baby chimps from West and Central Africa to Chinese zoos and private estates in the Middle East, where they can fetch as much as $25,000. Ebola has killed more than 11,200 people in West Africa since it broke out in December 2013.



Breakthrough in quest for Ebola vaccine
1 Aug 2015 at 12:31am

An Ebola test vaccine provided blanket protection in a field trial in Guinea, researchers said, possibly heralding "the beginning of the end" for the devastating West African outbreak that has killed thousands. The serum was 100 percent effective after a week in more than 7,600 people inoculated, according to results published in The Lancet medical journal and hailed as "extremely promising" by World Health Organization (WHO) chief Margaret Chan. The world was "on the verge of an effective Ebola vaccine," the UN's health agency said in a statement.
