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.

Golf's Rio return jars environmentalists, players stay away
23 Jul 2016 at 2:05am

By Pedro Fonseca RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Golf's return to the Olympic Games next month for the first time in 112 years has been marred by the absence of the sport's leading players and a court battle over potential environmental damage resulting from a new course in Brazil. Players, including the world's top four, are turning up their noses at the Olympics, citing concerns over the mosquito-borne Zika virus even though scientists have said there is little risk visitors will be infected during the Games, which start on Aug. 5. The golfers' lack of enthusiasm comes after the host city of Rio de Janeiro built a 18-hole course on 58,000 square metres of natural park in the Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood.

Alaska's top court rejects parental notice for abortions
22 Jul 2016 at 7:37pm
By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE (Reuters) - An Alaska law requiring doctors to notify the parents of girls under the age of 18 seeking an abortion violates the state's constitution and cannot be enforced, the state's top court ruled on Friday. The 4-1 decision marks a long-awaited victory for Planned Parenthood and other abortion-rights advocates in Alaska who argued the 2010 law violates the privacy of pregnant teens. It also comes on the heels of the U.S. Supreme Court decision to strike down a Texas abortion law imposing strict regulations on doctors and facilities in the strongest endorsement of abortion rights in America in more than two decades.

By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - More than 8,300 refugees fled violence in war-torn South Sudan and crossed into neighboring Uganda in a single day this week, setting a one-day record for this year, United Nations officials said on Friday.

More than two years of ethnically charged fighting, triggered when President Salva Kiir fired Vice President Riek Machar in 2013, has killed more than 10,000 people and forced more than 2 million others to flee their homes.

The following timeline charts the origin and spread of the Zika virus from its discovery nearly 70 years ago:

Factbox: Why the Zika virus is causing alarm
22 Jul 2016 at 2:29pm
Global health officials are racing to better understand the Zika virus behind a major outbreak that began in Brazil last year and has spread to many countries in the Americas. Zika is transmitted to people through the bite of infected female mosquitoes, primarily the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the same type that spreads dengue, chikungunya and yellow fever. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said Aedes mosquitoes are found in all countries in the Americas except Canada and continental Chile, and the virus will likely reach all countries and territories of the region where Aedes mosquitoes are found.

Florida tests more than 200 residents in Zika probe
22 Jul 2016 at 1:59pm
Health authorities in Florida have tested about 200 people for the Zika virus as part of the state's investigation of two possible cases of infections not related to travel to a region hit by an outbreak, officials said on Friday. Florida's health department this week began looking into what may be the first cases in the United States of Zika, a mosquito-borne virus that has spread rapidly through Latin America and the Caribbean, caused by the bite of a local mosquito. All prior cases of Zika in the United States have been linked with travel to a country where the virus is circulating or to sex with someone who has done such travel.

22 Jul 2016 at 1:58pm
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - About 10 percent of U.S. adults have a sensation of ringing in their ears, and the noise in their daily lives may be to blame, according to a new study.
