The Daily Tar Heel :: Acupuncture therapist offers a different kind of care for trauma




Print Edition

Open qualifying hopefuls 12 hours ago Done By Bernie McGuire VIRGINIA WATER, England, May 23 (Reuters) - Triple major winner Padraig Harrington heads the list of entries for Monday's 36-hole U.S. Open qualifying event on the outskirts of London. An injury to his left shoulder forced the Irishman to pull out of this week's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth during the first round but he is hopeful of taking part at Walton Heath. Harrington has not missed the U.S. Open since 1999 and after Monday's qualifying event he will start preparing for the Irish Open that starts three days later. "Physio, acupuncture and laser light treatment all being used to get me ready for the Irish Open (on Thursday)," Harrington said on his official Twitter account. Also due to compete in Open qualifying is Francesco Molinari who was leading midway through the third round of the BMW PGA on Saturday.

As a sexual assault survivor, Calandra discovered the benefits of acupuncture therapy for herself and decided to open her own practice. She opened her practice about seven months ago and hopes survivors will reach out to her for help. I use acupuncture as a therapy to heal from sexual violence and that inspired me to do that specifically, Calandra said. I already treat people for (post-traumatic stress disorder) on a regular basis but I wanted to be more specific and defined, and I felt like it was important to specifically say that I treat symptoms of rape trauma and to use that word so that people felt comfortable with me being able to talk about it and coming to me. Acupuncture therapy is an invasive therapy that can help patients process trauma that happens to their body. Acupuncture is primarily a neurological intervention, said Jacob Godwin, a director for the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. It has several mechanisms of action that affect the central and peripheral nervous systems, so primarily acupuncture is most commonly used for pain conditions, but it is also highly effective for neurological and psychological conditions because it does affect the nervous system and how it functions.

(AP) - The man who taught thousands of children to fly - and to vault, to tumble and spin - is trying to teach himself how to walk again. But first he must learn to crawl, the Lincoln Journal Star (http://bit.ly/1FqrYt7 ) reported. Twice a week, Jim Unger rehearses in the shallow end of the pool, buoyed by the water.

The Daily Tar Heel :: Acupuncture therapist offers a different kind of care for trauma




acuweb

Louisiana State University has received a $100,000 grant to use alternative therapy to treat animals. One of the alternatives is acupuncture. The treatments take about an hour and consist of very fine needles placed on certain points along the body. It's believed to stimulate nerves, which send signals to the brain to release hormones that promote healing and reduce pain. The cost is about $100 per treatment, and most pets require three to five to see results.

UFC 187 open workout highlights: Guess who got a birthday serenade and slice of cake

Our experts say that alone can cause additional stress; not to mention the oft-heard refrain of Just relax! Stephanie Gianarelli is the founder of Acupuncture Northwest and Associates (based in Seattle and Tacoma); Dr. Lora Shahine is a reproductive endocrinologist at Pacific Northwest Fertility (in Seattle). Together, they brought insight on how both eastern and western medicine address the issue of stress and fertility. Dr. Shahine talked about how research on the topic is mixed; many patients who have been successful with IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) have been able to, in retrospect, notice that they were not battling stress at the time of the treatment. But because many of these studiesfocus on a something that isntblack-and-white (each patient interprets stress level differently) it can be tough, from a western perspective, to say with certainty that stress affects fertility.

Beyond the risks of overuse and addiction, prescription drugs that numb pain may convince a patient that a musculoskeletal condition is less severe than it is, or that it has healed. That misunderstanding can lead to over-exertion and a delay in the healing process or even to permanent injury, says ACA media spokesperson Robert Hayden, DC, PhD. JAAOS points out that more than 80 percent of the worlds opioids are consumed in the United States and that orthopedic surgeons are the third-highest prescribers of these medications behind primary care physicians and internists. Researchers note that orthopedic surgeons must continue to treat pain but also implement strategies to battle the opioid epidemic. According to Dr. Hayden, one potential strategy is the use of conservative forms of care for pain before initiating higher-risk options such as opioids. A conservative health care model emphasizes more cost-effective and safer approaches over potentially addictive medications or surgery for pain management and health enhancement.

So basically it kind of tricks the nervous system into doing a lot of the self healing, pain management, self repair things that the body is already prepared to do, Godwin said. This type of therapy accesses many different parts of the mind and body and can help patients deal with different conditions. Acupuncture (works) endogenously because it triggers these responses in the brain itself it typically has a quicker and sometimes longer lasting effect (than medication), Godwin said. Calandra explained that although acupuncture worked for her, it is not for everyone and it is not a stand-alone therapy. Other types of therapy such as psychotherapy can be helpful to survivors.

Like insulin-resistance, cells can become immune to the effects of leptin when the levels are too high. Many obese people have high levels of leptin. When your leptin levels are high you do not know when to stop eating. Restoring balance to leptin levels helps reduce overeating. The third way acupuncture helps the body lose weight is by reducing cortisol production, the stress hormone.

Local acupuncturist dispels misconceptions - The Dispatch






Photo by: Birney Imes/Dispatch Staff May 20, 2015 10:31:48 AM When Clare Mallory O'Nan asked the Rotary Club of Columbus how many of them had tried acupuncture, five people in a room of about 60 raised their hands. O'Nan was pleasantly surprised -- she gives presentations several times a year and in Mississippi, normally only one or two people have tried the practice, which involves inserting thin needles into the body at certain points. O'Nan is a licensed acupuncturist. She runs the North Mississippi Acupuncture & Holistic Center in Columbus. During her presentation Tuesday, she tried to dispel some common misconceptions about acupuncture, primarily the idea that acupuncture is a practice based more on energy and voodoo than on science. "It's a very legitimate form of medicine, and it is a form of medicine that's based on the physical body," she said. O'Nan discovered acupuncture as a pre-medicine student in Seattle when a friend recommended she try it to quit smoking. "I tried it, and was fascinated by it," she said. "I learned more about it and now I have been practicing for 13 years." The list of conditions acupuncture alleviates is extensive. Some of the most notable that O'Nan cited were depression, diabetes, weight fluctuation and drug addictions. A study from the University of California at San Diego also mentioned acupuncture as helping conditions such as strokes and dysentery. Overall, studies have shown that the practice reduces stress and improves sleep.

An individual may make a tax-free rollover from an IRA to an HSA once in his or her lifetime. The rollover is limited to the maximum allowable contribution for the year, minus any amount already contributed. Before age 65, account owners face a 20 percent penalty for withdrawals for nonqualified medical expenses. These include elective cosmetic surgery, hair transplants, teeth whitening and health club memberships, among other things.

The Triple Tax Benefit of Health Savings Accounts

Even if the account is opened through an employer-sponsored program, all money in an HSA belongs to the account owner. Accounts are held with a trustee or custodian, which may be a bank, credit union, insurance company or brokerage firm. Although the tax advantages are appealing , advisors say investors shouldn't overlook HSAs' role as vehicles to save for medical expenses in retirement, when health care expenses generally rise. "When they are discussed, they're thought of as a tax shelter, which is true," says Shelby George, senior vice president of advisor services at Manning & Napier, a Fairport, New York, investment manager. "There's no other vehicle under the tax code that has the kind of preferential treatment that health savings accounts have. But it's a way for those who are not focused on tax-shelter opportunities to put the money aside as well," she adds.
