No: Tens units "confuse" the brain in the perception of pain signals. Tens may or may not be helpful for many pain conditions but not for any particular painful condition.

No, Everyone can: Supination is a type of muscle movement of the elbow, like flexing and extending. You supinate when you turn your palm up. Everyone can do this, unless there is a muscle or nerve injury. Supination can also refer to a way of walking so that pressure is unevenly distributed against the outside of the foot, causing pain.

Not safe: Losing 10 lbs in one week is generally not a good idea. That is too rapid of a weight loss and essentially means you would likely have to be starving yourself to lose that amount of weight. A good rule of thumb to follow is to lose up to 2-3 lbs per week.

How can I get my ten month old to take her bottle?

She will, if hungry: A healthy baby will eat or drink when she is hungry. So, parents can't make a baby eat, they can only let her get hungry. She will eat when she gets hungry enough. If she is usually bottle-fed, she will drink if she hasn't eaten a while. If she eats often, she may not take the bottle because she is still full. If she will breast-feed but not bottle-feed, she will take the bottle if hungry enough.

What is an easy way for me to lose ten pounds quick, easy, and healthy?

Cut off your arm: All kidding aside, there is no good and safe way to get rid of that much weight quickly. Weight loss by diet and exercise is best done gradually with lifestyle changes. Ideally, healthy weight loss should not exceed 1-2 pounds per week unless you are under constant supervision of a physician. Only severely dehydrating your body would have you decrease your weight faster, but that is not true loss.
