Steinbach Kid’s Health: Guard Against Chapped Skin

26 Jul

Steinbach Kids Health Guard Against Chapped Skin

When it comes to your Steinbach 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 Steinbach 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 Steinbach 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.

Arborg 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 Arborg 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 Manitoba sporting good stores or Arborg 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.

Winnipeg Sun Safety

25 Jul

Winnipeg Sun Safety

Many Manitoba families enjoy spending time together outside. Whether it is in the mountains or at the beach, fresh air and sunshine make family time a fun time. Winnipeg parents should make sure that their children are adequately protected from UV rays when enjoying outside time. Young skin can burn easily and one severe sunburn in childhood increases the chance of developing melanoma later in life two-fold. Manitoba babies should not even be exposed to the sun. Cover them with clothing and keep them in the shade. When your Winnipeg child is six months old, limited exposure to UV rays is okay, but use a healthy dose of sunscreen and common sense. The sunscreen sold at your Winnipeg supermarket or drugstore should be applied thirty minutes before your kids go outside.

If you are enjoying time at the pool or beach make sure to regularly reapply often.  When my kids swim at the Regina pool they take many breaks in the shade to reapply sunscreen and hydrate. My name is Karen Petursdottir and I am a Winnipeg-based Nugget representative and an advocate for Manitoba children’s health. There are many things to worry about as a parent., but I never have to worry about the healthy snacks I give my kids.

Why Are Arborg Home Businesses Booming?

18 Jul

Why Are Arborg Home Businesses Booming?The Manitoba network marketing industry is creating millionaires faster than ever before. This is due to a number of factors. Massive layoffs have forced hundreds of Arborg wage-earners to become home business entrepreneurs.

Arborg men and women who were punching a time-clock in 2007 are now receiving checks from direct sales and processing product orders from the comfort of their home.

This is a classic example of resourceful Arborg entrepreneurs turning economic lemons into lucrative home business lemonade.

Sophisticated technology is becoming more and more affordable for Regina home business owners. Arborg internet business owners can advertise, recruit, and process product orders quickly, professionally, and cheaply.

Regina direct sellers can identify and cater to a strategically targeted demographic. Your advertising budget brings a far greater ROI when concentrated on the Arborg people who want to buy your product.

I can help you profit from emerging trends in the Arborg retail landscape. I am a network marketer with a national Nugget direct selling network.

If you have never explored the Nugget direct selling opportunity, now is the time.

It has never been easier to establish channels of residual income that will ensure your Arborg family’s financial security through all the economic downturns of the future.

I have sales team members with backgrounds in hundreds of Manitoba industries. Your experience and skills can be adapted for your Nugget home business. Call me today at 204-229-0343 to find out how to get started. I am Chocaholic Karen Petursdottir, your Arborg home business and MLM mentor.

Helping Regina Kids Cope With Seasonal Allergies

11 Jul

Helping Regina Kids Cope With Seasonal Allergies

Hello Regina! Welcome to today’s children’s health and nutrition blog. Today, we are discussing seasonal allergies. Many Regina parents wonder if their child’s sneezing and runny nose are temporary symptoms of a cold or seasonal allergies. Generally, colds also come with aches and a low fever and last only a week, while allergies can persist for an entire season. Regina doctors are seeing new cases of seasonal allergies among people of all ages, especially adults. Is this an unintended result of more aggressive germ-fighting in childhood?

‘Researchers speculate that thanks to antibacterial soaps, hand sanitizers and other powerful germ-killing products, kids today are less likely to be exposed to the bacteria and viruses that help the immune system shift into gear and prevent them from developing allergies and asthma as they grow up.’1

Regardless of the possibility that allergies may persist into adulthood, there are several steps Regina parents can take to help their child get through the allergy prone months with minimal discomfort:

Replace your filters (AC and furnace) at least every two or three months, and look for MERV ratings of 11 or 12 for maximum efficiency filters. Though it may be difficult during the hot Regina months, remember to keep your windows closed at home and in the car. Check pollen levels online and try to have your child wait until evening to go outdoors when pollen counts are lower.

Have your child shower before going to bed to wash allergen out of his or her hair and skin so it won’t transfer to bedding and increase irritation during the night. You can also use plastic or allergen-proof covers for your child’s mattress, box springs, and pillows for extra protection.

Your Regina doctor can test your child to determine the specific allergens and prescribe safe and effective medications.

Xocai Chocolate for IBS In Regina

10 Jul

Winnipeg Probiotics for Lactose Intolerant People in Winnipeg may be amazed, but it’s true that our gastrointestinal tract is home to hundreds of different types of bacteria, each of which is constantly trying to divide and conquer.

The ‘good’ bacteria help us absorb nutrients from the food we eat. The ‘bad’ bacteria trigger a variety of intestinal miseries like constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, heartburn, stomach ulcers and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

IBS is a common ailment among Calgary women and men and a leading cause of workplace absenteeism.

Bacterial imbalances in Regina adults are also linked to conditions such as allergies, depression, fibromyalgia, and chronic yeast infections.

Probiotics are the key to a healthy GI tract for Winnipeg people concerned about intestinal health. Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria that are able to survive the stomach acids and bile salts on their way to the intestines where they can grow and devour the ‘bad’ bacteria. There are relatively few foods that can successfully deliver probiotics to the intestines; aged cheeses, live-culture yogurt, kefir (a beverage consisting of fermented milk and kefir grains), and miso are some of them.

MXI Corp, producers of Winnipeg Xocai chocolate have developed the most effective probiotic delivery system; Xocai healthy chocolate. An 11 gram Xocai XoBiotic Square delivers one billion friendly microorganisms to the GI tract.

Xocai XoBiotic Squares are one of the only probiotic foods that can be eaten by Arborg people who suffer from lactose intolerance.

Many Calgary people who have started eating Xocai XoBiotic Squares not only have noticed improvement in their digestion, they feel more energetic and seem to be more resistant to catching colds.

I am Winnipeg Xocai distributor Karen Petursdottir. If you are suffering from health problems that have eluded diagnosis and successful treatment, I suggest you try Xocai XoBiotic Squares. Xocai XoBiotic Squares the most delicious way to maintain GI health. To order Xocai XoBiotic Squares or any other Xocai antioxidant chocolate product, call 204-229-0343.

Winnipeg Parents Who Reduce Stress May Have Healthier Kids

05 Jul

Winnipeg Parents Who Reduce Stress May Have Healthier Kids

Moms and dads in the Regina area are always looking for ways to keep their kids healthy, but some of them might not know that reducing their own stress levels can have great benefits for their children.

A recent study shows that stressed-out parents are more likely to have an obese child, and childhood obesity in Steinbach is a risk factor for a variety of diseases and disorders.

The main culprits behind this trend are the parents who are too busy and stressed out to provide healthy food to their children.

It’s true that nutritious, well-rounded meals take a little more work, and they can seem more expensive compared to their over-processed counterparts. However, in the long-run, a healthy lifestyle will be better on your pocketbook.

When parents include time in their busy Calgary and Arborg schedules to de-stress, it can benefit the entire family.
Furthermore, learning to deal with stress in a healthy way is an important skill for parents and children, so next time you visit your Winnipeg family practitioner or pediatrician, ask about ways your whole family can reduce stress.

Hi, I’m Karen Petursdottir and I own a home business in Regina that sells Xobiotic. I am very concerned about issues related to the health of children such as proper nutrition and vitamins.

If you would like to know more about my home-based business or Xobiotic, please give me a call at 204-229-0343.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Food Safety Tips For Arborg Parents

04 Jul

Calgary Kids Health

Parents in the Regina and Steinbach area who want to give their children proper nutrition usually start by buying more fresh, unprocessed food. This is always a step in the right direction for your children’s health, but you should be aware of how long these foods stay fresh and safe to eat.

After picking up produce at your local Calgary or Winnipeg grocery store, make sure you know the best way to store the various types of fruits and vegetables that your family enjoys.

Check the expiration dates on your dairy products. Store them in the coolest parts of your fridge, never in the door. It’s also a good idea to keep a cooler bag in your car so you can keep these items cool as you drive home from your Steinbach grocer or Regina area farmer’s market.

Be sure to rinse all produce well before eating. Meat should also be kept cold until you are ready to cook it. It should be kept in the fridge and used within 2 or 3 days. Cooked meat should be kept no longer than 4 days in the fridge. If your kids like healthy leftovers that include meat, make sure you eat them within the next day or two, or freeze for later use.

Fresh food is usually far more nutritious than pre-packaged convenience items, so don’t be afraid of fresh food. Making a meal plan before you shop helps ensure that you will use all of the fresh ingredients before they go bad.

My name is Karen Petursdottir and I am passionate about kids health in Calgary. I own a fantastic Winnipeg home based business that sells Xobiotic. If you would like to learn more, please contact me at 204-229-0343. We can discuss the children’s health issues that are important to me, such as childhood obesity and immunizations.

Homemade Heat Pack For Regina Kids

03 Jul

Homemade Heat Pack For Regina Kids

Regina parents are great at helping their children stay healthy and safe. Today on the Winnipeg Children’s Health Blog, we wanted to give parents another way to help their kids: homemade heat packs. These easy-to-make heat packs are great for growing pains, sore muscles, or just some extra coziness at bedtime.

To start, simply go to any fabric store in the Steinbach, Arborg, or Calgary area and choose some fabric (actually, you could even use an old t-shirt, fabric scraps, or a sock you have lying around). Cut two layers of the fabric one inch bigger than the desired size of the heat pack you would like for your child. A long rectangular shape is usually best.

Next, starting with one of the long sides, sew along the edges making sure to leave room for the seam allowance. Leave one short end open and fill the bag 2/3 full of rice. You can add a few drops of essential oil or herbs (these can be found at most Winnipeg natural food stores) to give the heat pack a pleasant odor for your child. Tie the bag off at the open end with some cotton string, or stitch it shut, and you’re done!

When your ready to use it, be safe by only heating it in the microwave for one minute. Check to see if it’s warm enough, then add time in short increments from there. If your kids prefer a cold pack in the summer, these bags can go in the freezer to chill for a spell.

If you want to get extra fancy, any Steinbach, Arborg, or Calgary fabric store would have interesting trimmings to add. But remember to avoid ribbons that have metal wire in them.

Healthy, happy Regina kids and their parents can be comfortable all year long with these quick and easy heat packs!

My name is Karen Petursdottir and I love to help Manitoba parents with Regina children’s preventative health care and nutrition. If you are in the Regina area and would like to learn more about kids health or Xobiotic, call me today at 204-229-0343!
