Health Benefits of Shawnee Mission…Dirt!

Health Benefits of Shawnee Mission Dirt!

Most Shawnee Mission parents know about the health benefits of gardening as a family: spending time outdoors, working together, establishing a connection to the food we eat, better nutrition, and many more.

Something not so well known in Shawnee Mission is that the dirt itself contains beneficial bacteria that can aid in depression, cognitive functioning, and even in fighting some cancers.

Working with soil in Shawnee Mission – digging, pulling weeds, harvesting vegetables – exposes Kansas kids and parents to a strain of bacteria called mycobacterium vaccae. Recent research reveals that m. vaccae triggers the release of seratonin, which can elevate mood and reduce stress.

In one study, two groups of mice were fed peanut butter sandwiches before finding their way through a difficult maze. One of the groups had m. vaccae spread on the sandwiches. The mice that ingested the bacteria ran the maze twice as fast and exhibited half as many stress behaviors as the mice that didn’t have the bacteria.

Think of Shawnee Mission kids in the ‘good ole’ days,’ running around on unpaved roads, playing in meadows, forests, and dirt piles, and half of the time probably bare-foot. It is quite a different childhood than the sanitized version that exists in our society today. Children not only need more time out-of-doors, but they need to get dirty! Let your Shawnee Mission neighbors hear you yell: ‘Kids, go outside and get dirty!’

Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County, Kansas/Missouri, and KC Metropolitan parents may do themselves and their children a favor by adding to their kids’ emotional, physical, and intellectual health by letting them play in the dirt!

My name is Molly Logsdon and I want to help Shawnee Mission families raise healthy, happy kids. Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County concern me. I am the owner of a Overland Park area home business that sells Power Squares.

New Sunscreen Recommendations For Shawnee Mission Infants

New Sunscreen Recommendations For Shawnee Mission Infants Babies love to be outdoors on a sunny Overland Park day, but a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that changes in the skin that lead to skin cancer may actually occur in a person’s first year. However, sunscreen is not recommended for Shawnee Mission children under six months of age. What’s a parent to do?

Overland Park parents should be aware that infants have a much higher body surface to volume ratio than adults. Because of this, babies absorb much more of the chemicals in the sunscreen.

In addition, younger babies don’t sweat as efficiently as those older, so they are at greater risk of becoming dehydrated, and sunscreen can impair effective cooling by perspiration.

Overland Park parents should dress infants in protective clothing and hats and keep them in the shade. If needed, a little sunscreen can be used on the face and hands, where sunburns often occur in young Overland Park children.

I am an independent Protein Bar consultant based in Shawnee Mission. If you are interested in learning about nutritional products for your Overland Park family, contact me today.

Shawnee Mission Family Fitness

Shawnee Mission Family Fitness

Many parents in Shawnee Mission are concerned about the amount of time their kids spend in front of a screen, either playing games or watching TV. We want to encourage our children to be physically active and thereby healthier.

There are several things Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County parents can do to increase their kids level of physical activity. Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County pediatricians stress the importance of being a role model for your kids. Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County children who see their parents participating in activities are more likely to be active themselves.

When children see their mom or dad doing yoga in the living room or holding a plank position and doing push ups they can’t resist trying it. By turning exercising into a game, you can keep your child interested.

Positive and active parenting is an exciting opportunity to raise healthy and fit kids in Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County. I am hoping that today’s kids in Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County will be healthier than our generation.

My name is Molly Logsdon and I am a local Protein Bar representative. I advocate for children’s health and would love to talk to you today. Call me to learn more about kids health and Power Squares. I recommend Power Squares because Power Squares I enjoy helping others personally and financially.

Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County Kid’s Health: Guard Against Chapped Skin

Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County Kids Health Guard Against Chapped Skin

When it comes to your Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County child’s health, you might first think of their diet. While putting vitamins and minerals inside your child’s body is important, you also need to pay attention to what is going on on the outside. I’m talking about your child’s skin.

The skin is our body’s largest organ and when skin’s smoothness is disrupted, small cracks and openings can create an entryway for bacteria and germs.

Active Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County kids don’t often think of the condition of their skin until it starts hurting. Playing outside in hot, cold, or dry weather can lead to small cracks around knuckles or nails. This painful condition is called dermatitis, or extreme dryness. Temperature extremes in Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County make it harder to keep skin moist and healthy – dry, chapped and cracked skin is common in summer and winter.

Many kids lick their lips until they turn red or bleed. Reminding your child to drink plenty of water can prevent over-dryness.  Using a humidifier during the night in your child’s bedroom can also help.

Make sure you leave moisturizing lip balm in handy locations: by their bed, the front door and in the car so reapplying it becomes habit. Remind them to slick some over their cuticles as well, to prevent cracking.

Kansas/Missouri dermatologists suggest a using a daily skin moisturizer that contains shea butter and aloe to draw moisture into the skin and keep it in place.

Encourage Kansas/Missouri kids to use waterproof gloves when playing outside in the cold. Lightweight gloves with grips added to the palms are great for playing ball and riding bikes. In addition to protecting skin from dryness, they keep small hands from slipping. You can pick these up at Kansas sporting good stores or Kansas/Missouri big box stores.

Using a non-drying sanitizer is another way to prevent bacteria from entering through the skin. Look for brands that are alcohol-free to prevent excessive dryness.

For additional tips for Kansas/Missouri children’s health and to learn about a nutritional supplement kids love, contact me today at (913) 636-5158!

Internet Safety For KC Metropolitan Kids

Internet Safety For KC Metropolitan  Kids

No KC Metropolitan parent wants their child to be exposed to Internet pornography, however, this tragedy occurs everyday. Why is there such a disconnect?

Some KC Metropolitan parents may not realize that their young child can navigate the computer like a pro. Others may believe that their child would never go looking for inappropriate material.

If you think your Overland Park kids are too young to worry about it, don’t be so sure. Kansas parents continue to report that they found out too late that their child was exposed. I urge you to take precautions now.

With Internet pornography increasing everyday and young people succumbing to this cybermonster, Overland Park parents wonder what they can do to prevent this from ever happening to their kids.

This advice bears repeating: KC Metropolitan parents should put the computer in an open area so that it can be monitored. In addition, many forms of web protection are available for free. Though it is time-consuming, KC Metropolitan parents would be wise to only allow their child use the Internet with Mom or Dad present.

Talk to your kids and ask them if they have encountered Internet pornography. Ask them what they did or what they would do in such a situation. Though this is a secondary concern: explain to them that certain web pages and ‘pop ups’ contain viruses that can damage the computer. Open communication is essential.

If your KC Metropolitan children have encountered pornography, perhaps at a friend’s house, emphasize its destructive nature and teach them that what they saw is degrading to men, women, and healthy relationships. Internet pornography is a plague with many KC Metropolitan victims, including children. It is up to KC Metropolitan parents and youth leaders to help KC Metropolitan children be safe online.

My name is Molly Logsdon and I care about Internet safety for KC Metropolitan kids. For more information about child raising topics, or to hear about a new healthy kids snack, contact me today at molly@Oxifood.com.

Underemployed in Shawnee Mission?

Underemployed in Shawnee Mission?

While unemployment statistics are the numbers that usually make the news, underemployment is usually more common here in Shawnee Mission. Working Overland Park people who are ‘underemployed’ have jobs that are not sufficient. This usually means the position is part-time or it doesn’t pay enough.

One solution for people in the Overland Park area who find themselves underemployed is to start a home based business. I’m Molly Logsdon and I have a home business selling Power Squares in and around KC Metropolitan , Kansas/Missouri, and Johnson/Jackson/Wyandotte County.

Members of my Xocai team enjoy earning supplemental income in their free time, and they find that the personal nature of direct sales is the optimal way to sell Power Squares.

If you are an underemployed Shawnee Mission resident who would like the opportunity to earn residual income from home, call me at (913) 636-5158. I would love to tell you why I chose Xocai for my Shawnee Mission home business.

Overland Park Injuries: Get The Ice, Fast!

Overland Park Injuries Get The Ice Fast!

If your Overland Park kids are active on the field, the court, or in your own backyard, chances are you have dealt with many bumps, bruises, and sprains. Prompt medical care can make all the difference when it comes to how quickly an injury heals.

Despite medical advancements, when it comes to a sprain, strain, break, or bruise, the best way to reduce pain and swelling is the same as when you were a kid: apply ice.

For the best DIY ice bag, fill a zip-top bag with ice cubes or crushed ice and a little water. The liquid will help the bag conform to the body and distribute the cold evenly. You can also use the frozen peas trick, which does essentially the same thing.

Don’t apply the bag to bare skin, however. This could cause frostbite or even a burn. Wrap the pack in a thin towel or article of clothing.

Don’t take the ice off too soon. Removing it after just a few minutes, when the skin is cold to the touch, won’t have a lasting effect. Leave ice on the injury until the area goes numb, but not more than 20 minutes. Repeat this once an hour for up to four hours.

Remember to get the ice on as soon as possible. Preventing and reducing inflammation speeds up the healing process. The sooner you get ice on it, the sooner your Overland Park child will be back in action.

DASH Diet Better For Teens In Shawnee Mission

DASH Diet Better For Teens In Shawnee Mission Attention Shawnee Mission teens: The Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension (DASH) helps prevent adolescent obesity, according to a recent study.1

The study was published in the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. The DASH diet includes low-fat dairy, chicken, lean, beef, chicken, nuts, fruits, whole grains, vegetables, and legumes.

Surprisingly, study participants who followed DASH actually ate, on average, 250 more calories than those who ate a typical Shawnee Mission teen diet: high-fat meats, cheeses, highly processed foods, and fast food meals.

Shawnee Mission parents who emphasize a ‘calorie deficit’ plan for teen weight loss may want to consider focusing more on the quality of the foods eaten.

I am a small business owner and teen health advocate in Shawnee Mission. The products I sell promote health for people of all ages. For information on my health and wellness products, contact me today. Thanks for visiting my Shawnee Mission children’s health blog.

New Ways To Sell Power Squares In Shawnee Mission

New Ways To Sell Power Squares In Shawnee Mission If you’re a veteran Shawnee Mission direct seller who hasn’t changed the way you operate your business in the past five years, this article is for you. I have been selling and recruiting with my iPhone using free or inexpensive small business apps for a couple of years now. It has allowed me to make better use of my time as I run my Shawnee Mission Power Squares business.

If you have not yet purchased an internet-enabled phone, I assure you that it is well worth the cost of a monthly data plan. If there are no 14 year-olds handy, I can show you how to use it.

The internet-based business apps now available are as sophisticated as those of Shawnee Mission companies ten times the size of a one-person operation. Instead of buying hardware and software, you can use those that are hosted on servers in the ‘cloud’.

If you are ready to jump into a business with the potential for unlimited income, I recommend using affordable cloud computing to make money with your own Power Squares internet store. Your store is open 24/7/365, even while you are working your day job, sleeping, or playing golf!

Email me at molly@Oxifood.com (on your new smart phone, of course) to find out why my direct sales opportunity doesn’t require a big investment up front.
