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.

U.S. meat, seafood prices rising on drought and disease: USDA
25 Jul 2014 at 6:56am

By Ros Krasny WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Overall U.S. food inflation will remain near the historic norm in 2014, even as prices for meat and seafood are pushed higher by disease and widespread drought, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Friday. USDA said wholesale pork prices will jump by 10 percent to 11 percent in 2014, hurt by declining supplies after a virus has killed millions of piglets in the past year. Food inflation, which includes items bought in grocery stores as well as in restaurants, will rise by 2.5 percent to 3.5 percent this year and subside to 2 percent to 3 percent in 2015, the USDA said in its first forecast for the new year. The agency noted a recent jump in vegetable prices but said it was too soon to tie the move to the severe drought in California, the largest U.S. grower of fruits and vegetables.
