Prevent Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

November 29, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Primary teeth are usually called baby teeth or milk teeth and first start to erupt through the gums of your baby between 4 to 6 months of age. Teething lasts until all 20 teeth appear, the children being usually around 2 ½ years of age by this time. Teething is a major milestone in the development of your child but it is also, quite often, a painful one. The eruption of primary teeth, or teething, can cause sore and tender gums that appear red and puffy. To help relieve the pain, you can give the baby a cold teething ring or a damp washcloth to chew on. My mother used to give me a cold carrot stick to suck on.

If you’re bottle-feeding you need to be more aware of tooth decay – most often called baby bottle tooth decay. One reason bottle-fed babies are more prone to tooth decay …

Posterior Tibial Tendonitis

November 29, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Posterior tibial tendonitis is when this tendon becomes damaged. A common cause of this damage could be an injury. I recently came back from New Orleans and they have this street called Bourbon Street. On this street you can drink alcohol and strangely enough they have all these potholes. All it takes is you looking at something else while you step in a pothole and then twist this tendon, and now you have this problem.

Another way it can get damaged is through wear and tear over time. Perhaps someone is a stuntman who falls on their feet a lot. People who play lots of basketball or tennis could also tear down this tendon over time. Another big risk factor is being overweight, diabetes and high blood pressure.

What do you think the number 1 symptom of this condition is going to be? Yes, it’s going to be pain where …

Conservation of Hearing

November 28, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Certain types of deafness are determined before birth. Some of these appear in early life, others with advancing years. Most deafness, however, is due to inflammatory conditions of the middle ear, to interference with normal nasal breathing, to foci of infection in sinuses, tonsils, teeth, gall bladder, or other organs of the body, to the toxins of scarlet fever, diphtheria, or syphilis, to accumulations of wax in the external ear canal, or to certain nutritional, glandular, or general diseases.

Inflammatory conditions of the middle ear are produced by infections which reach the middle ear from the throat by Way of the Eustachian tube. In children the Eustachian tube is straighter and larger than in adults; hence, infection can traverse its course most easily in childhood. An acute infection of the middle car, even though the eardrum is ruptured or opened usually produces little or no impairment of hearing, but recurrent …

CPAP

November 28, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Constant positive airway pressure (CPAP) is an effective method of treating obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. CPAP-therapy was introduced to clinical practice in 1981 by an Australian physician and Professor. Colin Sullivan for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

The mechanism of action of the CPAP device is quite simple. A small compressor is used for creating constant air flow under a certain pressure in the airways during exhalation through a flexible tube and a nose mask. It is also used a humidifier that provides moisturizing and heats the air which enters the airways. This device does not allow the upper airways to be obstructed because of the constant positive air pressure and eliminates the main cause of the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

CPAP-therapy for patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is now universally accepted. Before prescribing CPAP-therapy, a Polysomnography is required or in other words a Sleep Study. Polysomnography …

About Winter Eye Problems

November 28, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Tearing Eyes

Apart from winter weather drying out your eyes, the cold weather can also make your eyes over produce tears which can be very annoying and can make vision blurry. The best thing to help with this is to wear glasses, goggles, or sunglasses when outside to avoid the wind causing watery eyes. Also, if you are wiping your eyes to get rid of the tears make sure you use clean tissues or cloths to avoid infection. Excessive tearing eyes can also be caused by other factors such as infection, blocked tear duct, or surprisingly dry eyes, so if you are concerned make an appointment with your eye clinic or opticians so they can check it out.

Tired Eyes

The winter months are darker and natural light is less which can make certain tasks more difficult, reading and writing for example. Straining your eyes to see in lower light …

November 28, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

If you know people with plantar fasciitis, you likely heard plenty of horror stories of how the pain and discomfort of the condition can put one’s life on hold. Regardless of whether you have it and don’t want to make the condition worse or you’re so scared of getting it, you’re open to ways that won’t trigger it, here are some common causes of this painful, increasingly common foot health condition:

Being overweight. Plantar fasciitis is triggered when pressure is put on the feet. If you’re overweight, you’re putting more pressure on your feet.

Being overly ambitious in your workout. Overdoing yourself by doing too much too fast in your exercising can cause plantar fasciitis. With this foot condition, a tear is formed in the tendon that runs from your heel to the ball of your foot. Doing too rigorous a workout suddenly increase your chance of tearing or straining …

Great Bedtime Routine

November 27, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0
  • Consistency is often an important contributor to a good sleep routine, where you have a designated time to switch off from work, eat healthily and aim to go to bed and get up at the same time. Training your mind and body as to when to wind down is the key to supporting an effective sleep pattern.
  • Be proactive in dealing with each day’s stresses. Ask yourself if you’ve done all you reasonably can to address a particular area of concern, then aim to let it go until further input from you is required. Being disciplined is important in order to calm your ‘fight or flight’ approach to stress. Commit to good daytime habits and take regular breaks throughout the day, stopping for lunch and aiming to get some fresh air and exercise; all ways to support a positive approach to work/life balance and good sleep.

Citronella Oil Benefits

November 23, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0
  1. Mosquito repellent: Citronella works by masking the smells that mosquitoes use to locate humans. Citronella oil has a rather lemony citrus smell that mosquitoes tend to avoid. Citronella mosquito repellents include patches, bands, creams, lotions, gels, candles, diffusers, vaporizers etc. of these the bands and patches are the most efficient ones. Bands and patches are easy to use either slapped on the hand and ankle, stuck on clothes, caps strollers etc. The only drawback with these is the fact that they need frequent re-application. Apart from that these are by far the safest mosquito repellents for kids.
  2. Antiseptic: Citronella has antiseptic properties. It sanitizes wounds and prevents infection. It is Mother Nature’s own antiseptic. However, one should exercise caution about the amount and method of using citronella oil as an antiseptic for the young ones.

What’s more is particular foods can help cure a common cold faster than others. Let’s look at the best foods to be eating if you want to beat that infection…

  1. Garlic. While not classed as food, if you add garlic to as many dishes as you do eat, you will be much better off. Garlic is a potent immune booster and can also help kill unwanted infections in your body as well. Garlic kills unwanted viruses and bacteria thanks to the level of allicin it contains: allicin is an active component that offers antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.

Spot a Quality Heel

WEAR YOUR real SHOE SIZE

If you are an 8 ½, wear an 8 ½, and not an 8. Don’t focus on the number think about how you would look after a couple of hours in that too small shoe. Your face would be a lot happier if your feet were. Get your size! Plus you won’t have to stretch them out which extends the life of your shoe also.

LOOK AT HOW THE SOLE IS ATTACHED TO THE SHOE.

If the sole is stitched on, make sure the stitches are even and look secure. If it’s glued on, check to make sure that there is no space around the edges where the sole could start to peel off. You want a bottom that’s seamless and isn’t going anywhere.

More expensive shoes are usually sewn to the sole, hand-stitching, or more likely machine stitching is more time consuming.

Back Pain Hereditary

November 17, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

When evaluating the cause of possible inherited back pain, it’s important to take into account that we get many of our emotional and physical traits from our parents. Many of these dispositions, physical forms and personality traits are trickled down through the genes and enhanced by the lifestyle choices we make. In other words, being aware of our family’s medical history may be significant in discovering any increased risks of developing back pain. Early diagnoses and accurate treatment play a major role in the successful cure of many spine conditions. It is therefore important to know of any major back problems experienced by our immediate relatives so that we can be aware of any potential risk to ourselves.

Those of us with a family history of back pain can lower our risk by properly looking after our spines, maintaining a healthy weight and undertaking regular exercise.

Ear Wax Removal

November 17, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

A List of Don’ts

While it is natural to want to stay clean, there are several things people should not do with regards to this sensitive organ. Cotton swabs are extensively marketed for cleaning ears. In many cases, however, your body keeps itself clean. The process of inserting a cotton swab into the canal can actually do more harm than good. This process may push cerumen back down into the canal instead of allowing it to work itself out naturally. Once this pattern begins, the body may even respond by producing more wax. Over time, the cerumen can become severely compacted, which can partially or completely obstruct the canal.

Additionally, people should never attempt to use any sharp instruments for ear wax removal. Items such as paper clips, hairpins, and toothpicks can result in serious injury, perhaps even causing a punctured drum.

Cataract

Cataract- the silent enemy

Cataract in the eyes develops and progresses silently. Slowly and gradually with the advancing age, people start facing problems in visibility. The lens of the eye becomes cloudy or opaque. The problem begins with a blurry or foggy vision and the visibility deteriorates with time.

The biggest reason people do not pay attention towards it is that usually the cataract is painless and causes no discomfort to the victims. People just keep changing their eye-glasses for getting better vision and the cataract keeps expanding its reign in the eyes.

It is very important that patients familiarize themselves with the cataract symptoms. If people start seeking early cataract treatment, its impact will be low.

Fix Snoring

November 17, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

Change in sleeping position – The best sleeping position to minimize snoring is on your side. If sleeping on your back, there is the risk of excess fatty tissue, your chin, and tongue pushing down on your airway. This issue is removed by simply sleeping on your side. Also, there are special pillows to help achieve the desired sleep position. Additionally, there is the option to tape tennis balls or similar to the back of your nightwear to prevent sleeping flat on your back.

Keeping the nose clear – A clear nose makes it easier to breath through your nose when sleeping. A nasal spray or antihistamine tablets are useful remedies to treat the allergy blocked nose.

Info of Surviving Death

November 17, 2018 Billy Kamerskin 0

During my pre-surgery phase, I was told to focus on drinking 100 grams of protein every day. This involved pounding Muscle Milk’s like a champ. Obviously, I drank water and juices, along with chicken broth to get me through the 14 days.

After my surgery, the doctors were happy and told me to work another 2 weeks on the same liquid diet and then I could move up to “soft foods”. Doing exactly, what I had done the previous 2 weeks, I drank my Muscle Milks, had the sugar-free popsicles, enjoyed egg drop soup broth and did this, ad nauseum, for almost a month.

On the last day of my liquid diet, I croaked.

You read this right. I died for over 11 minutes and had it not been for the first responders and staff of ladies at Vitacare in Tulsa, Oklahoma, I wouldn’t have survived. Evidently there are two …

Intoxication Are Closing

It is important to identify and put safeguards on legal products which are manipulated and used for recreation. Otherwise, the damage will be done before the source is named if we wait for the emergency rooms to shed light through overdose autopsies.

One U.S. area got impacted by the drug crisis so greatly that the National Guard was called in to assist. Citizens who ‘accidentally’ got hooked when an injury or surgery required pain management became addicts with insatiable appetites for opiates. They are being called iatrogenic or ‘accidental addicts.’

In a desperation that can’t be put into words, cravings drove many to seek illegal sources to obtain relief from withdrawal. Symptoms begin within a few hours of ceasing drug intake and increase with time. For full-blown addicts, medications are sometimes needed to break the cycle.

One new street drug is called ‘Shady 80.’ This combo has the capacity to …
