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.

Japan scientists develop micro-fine adhesive sensors
20 Dec 2014 at 2:24am

Scientists in Japan have developed a sticky sheet of tiny sensors that can be put directly on moving joints, beating hearts or other living tissues. "Just by applying to the body like a compress, our novel sheet sensor detects biometric information extremely accurately," researchers at the University of Tokyo said in a statement Friday. The secret is an adhesive gel that prevents a fine grid of sensors from slipping, even if the thing they are in contact with is moving, said the team led by professor Takao Someya at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems.

19 Dec 2014 at 5:02pm
By Caroline Humer (Reuters) - U.S. health regulators on Friday approved AbbVie's all-oral treatment for hepatitis C, and the company said the drug would cost $83,319 for a typical 12-week plan, a bit below its huge selling competitor Solvadi from Gilead Sciences.

Coal ash is not hazardous waste under U.S. agency rules
19 Dec 2014 at 4:02pm

By Jonathan Kaminsky (Reuters) - In a disappointment to environmentalists, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued rules on Friday labeling coal ash, a byproduct of coal-based power production containing toxic materials such as arsenic and lead, as non-hazardous waste. The label means that states and environmental groups taking legal action, and not the EPA, will be the primary enforcers of the first-ever federal rules targeting coal ash, which will require the closure of some coal ash holding ponds leaking contaminants into surrounding water but will not cover others. ...
