6 Ways to Soothe your Child Teething Pain

When your child is teething, you cannot help but feel excited as your child achieved another milestone in their lives. Most of the time, babies experience teething at 6 months. You will just notice that pearly white teeth at poking through their gums and you will also see noticeable changes in their behavior. Puffy, red gums are evident before the tooth erupts and you will notice your child drool excessively than they used to. At some point, you will observe your child being irritable mostly at night. This is because their teeth are moving through their gums and bones causing them to throw tantrums over at night.

A teething child means working double when tending to your child. Their signs and symptoms vary and most of the time, they are irritable. So as parents, you need to be more patient. There are proven remedies that will help relieve your children the uncomfortable feeling that they are going through in times like this.

a. Using a cold spoon. Using a cold or chilled spoon will give your child that needed relief. The coldness will sooth them especially before their teeth erupt.

b. Breastfeeding. Though you may hardly produce breast milk at 6 months or more. Although sucking may intensify the pain while teething, there are other children who find comfort in breastfeeding.

Bariatric Surgery

"Patients are reassured to know I truly understand what they're going through," says Candace Johnson, a bariatric nurse clinician at Park Nicollet Bariatric Surgery Center. "I know how frustrating it is to be overweight. I know how scary it is to make this decision. And I know how life-changing it is to finally achieve success."

Johnson, 45, also knows how difficult it can be when deciding whether to have bariatric surgery. Like many, her path to this life-changing decision came after living with obesity for many years, and enduring many unsuccessful attempts at losing weight.

"When I was younger, I was always about 30 to 40 pounds overweight," she says. "But after my children were born, I found myself weighing 150 pounds more than I did before my first pregnancy."

Besides the pregnancies, Johnson believes other factors contributed to her weight gain, more She worked 12-hour shifts, often at night. And when she wasn't working, she was exhausted from raising her two boys and not getting enough sleep.

Cancer Treatment

Thanks to early diagnosis and better treatments, cancer death rates have steadily declined during the past 20 years. Because of these advances, The American Cancer Society estimates that over 11 million people with cancer will celebrate another birthday this year.

"One of the most significant advances in cancer treatment has been the development of targeted therapy," says Joseph Leach, MD, oncology research medical director at Park Nicollet Frauenshuh Cancer Center. "Targeted therapy refers to a new class of drugs that identifies and attacks cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells alone."

How targeted therapy works

"Cancer cells can be identified by abnormal proteins on their cell walls and in their DNA," explains Karen Swenson, PhD, oncology research director at Frauenshuh Cancer Center. These abnormalities allow cancer cells to reproduce excessively, live longer than normal cells, and invade and damage nearby tissues and organs, more

"Targeted therapy works by seeking out and attacking cells with these abnormal proteins," Swenson continues. Different types of targeted therapy work in different ways, altering how cancer cells grow, divide, repair themselves or interact with other cells.
