Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Homer Kids

Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Homer Kids

Hello Homer! Welcome to my children’s health blog. I am a concerned parent and advocate for improved children’s health in the Homer area.

Today’s topic is energy drinks. Many Homer teens are under the false impression that energy drinks like Rock Star and Red Bull are similar to sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade.

Energy drinks are completely different from electrolyte replacement drinks and we need to help our children understand the health risks they pose. Energy drinks contain dangerous chemicals that can harm kid’s growing bodies, especially their teeth.

Energy drinks contain citric acid, fruit juices and extracts, sugar, and a dangerous chemical that gives them their bright color. They can damage tooth enamel with prolonged use.

It is important for us Homer parents to model healthy behavior for our children. If your kids see you guzzle energy drinks, you may want to think about the example you are setting.

I sell child-friendly nutritional products that are enjoyed by healthy Homer families. To order healthy energy-boosters, visit http://www.livebychocolaetoday.com.

Palmer Sun Safety

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Palmer Sun Safety

Many Alaska 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. Palmer 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. Alaska babies should not even be exposed to the sun. Cover them with clothing and keep them in the shade. When your Palmer 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 Palmer 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 Anchorage pool they take many breaks in the shade to reapply sunscreen and hydrate. My name is Geneve Campbell and I am a Palmer-based XProtein Meal shake representative and an advocate for Alaska 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. If you are interested in Wasilla children’s health and healthy snacking contact me today!

New Anti Aging Product In Anchorage

When it comes to anti aging skin care, Anchorage women naturally tend to focus most of their attention on their faces. In fact, in 2008 it was reported that 97% (98% in 2006) of female anti aging beauty care purchases are for facial skin care products. But what about the rest of you? Skin you reveal on your hands, chest and legs can give away your age if you’re not careful — no matter how much attention you give to your face. Areas that receive the most incidental UV exposure, like the hands and the décolletage, are very sensitive to the aging process. So when it comes to effective anti aging skin care in Anchorage, love the skin you’re in.

UPDATE: In 2000, one of the great scientific achievements occurred when the sequencing of the human genome revealed the entire genetic blueprint. That discovery led cutting edge skin care Beauty Scientists to explore how skin-related genes function and, more importantly, respond to aging and environmental stress at the molecular level. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Genome_Project

Most Anchorage folks probably know that stress actually causes a physiological reaction in your body that results in the production of cortisol, known by scientists as ‘the stress hormone.’ Cortisol causes inflammation in the organs of your body, including the skin. That’s right. It’s not a typo. Your skin is an organ! And just like other organs, it can become inflamed. The result? Inflamed pores clog more easily. Inflamed collagen can result in wrinkles. Other signs of skin inflammation include itchiness, dryness and acne. The fact of the matter is that Anchorage men and women wear their stress on their skin. The question is, what can be done about it?

Anchorage residents: address your stress. Don’t ignore it!

Learn to identify feelings associated with stress so you can self-soothe through coping strategies such as deep breathing, exercising, meditation or yoga. Carve out time for yourself to minimize tension. Relax in a luxurious bath or shower. Get a massage at a plush Anchorage day spa. Unclench your jaw. And, of course, take care of your skin—keep it hydrated by moisturizing morning and night. Remember, to get maximum benefits from your moisturizer, apply it to damp skin.

What are peptides and do they matter? Scientifically speaking, peptides are tiny fragments of protein molecules: short chains of amino acids that naturally occur in the skin. Practically speaking, peptides are a growing trend in anti aging skin care! What do peptides do? Peptides promote the natural production of collagen and elastin, both of which plump the skin and give it elasticity. And both of which decline as we age. In skin care products, effective peptides can work together with glycerin to enhance the stratum corneum to increase hydration which in turn, aids in the natural production of collagen. Not surprisingly, the use of peptides in effective commercial products sold in Alaska has significantly risen in recent years. Another peptide getting its fair share of attention is pal-KT. Expect to see more from peptides in the future.

Skin tone actually plays a role in how old—or young—you look. How do we know that? Notable Scientists used digital photos of real women to create 3D images of faces with a variety of skin tone patterns. These successful scientists removed all other age-defining features such as facial furrows, lines and wrinkles. Then, over 400 subjects were asked to view the faces, guess the age, and rate them for how healthy they looked and how attractive they appeared. The faces with the most even skin tone, or most uniform color distribution, were not only judged to be younger but they also received significantly higher ratings for attractiveness and looking healthy. So if you are a Palmer man or woman with younger-looking skin on your mind, skin tone should be too.

As you age, your skin does, as well. Not exactly rocket science. Or is it? Every time your skin is exposed to a change in its environment (for example, you scrape it, go out on a sunny day in Anchorage or even apply moisturizer), the cells in your skin respond by turning on and turning off thousands of different genes at the same time. Using scientific advances that have recently emerged from the Human Genome Project, skin scientists are beginning to gain a deeper understanding of the genes involved in the skin aging process. Meet the gene chip. No bigger than the size of your thumbnail, the gene chip can measure the signals sent out by thousands of genes at a time. Using gene chips, skin scientists are in the process of identifying the genes that play a role in maintaining your skin, as well as how the signals or messages sent out by genes change as your skin begins to age.

Scientists watch and learn. By comparing the genetic composition of the skin of younger and older women, scientists have observed the ups and downs of genes related to inflammation, pigmentation, collagen breakdown, hydration, antioxidant response and lipid synthesis over time. The benefits for Anchorage residents: Ingredients for anti aging. Scientists have determined that a strong moisture barrier in the top layer of your skin is key for maximum inner skin performance and have identified (and are continuing to identify) ingredients that hydrate to improve skin’s appearance.

Sneaky Veggies For Anchorage Kids

Sneaky Veggies For Anchorage Kids

Anchorage parents: when you put a serving of broccoli or zucchini on your son’s or daughter’s plate, does your kid gobble it down, or stare at it like it’s a pile of alien goo? Well, if the former is true, then you can skip this article. However, I think many families in the 99501 zip code area could use some more veggies for better children’s nutrition in Anchorage.

Here are some ideas for Anchorage parents who want to sneak more veggies into kids’ diets:

Broccoli: cook the broccoli, blend it up, and put some of it into brownie batter. Sounds strange, I know, but even the pickiest eater won’t detect the added children’s vitamins and minerals.
Zucchini and yellow squash: shred it and add it to pasta sauces or casseroles. Theses veggies have a mild flavor, and won’t detract from the taste of the dish.
Spinach and other dark greens: if you have a high-end blender, you may be able to blend these super healthy greens raw. If not, you can boil them for a few minutes until tender, and then plunge them into ice water. Blend with some frozen fruit and yogurt or tofu for a nutrient-rich smoothie.
Cauliflower: dice it, cook it, and add it to white sauces or cheesy sauces over pasta.

There are many ways Anchorage parents and caregivers can add healthy veggies to foods kids already eat. It might take a little more preparation, but Alaska children are worth it!

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Alaska and like to share children’s health and nutrition tips in my blog. If you are looking for low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate products, call me today. I sell XProtein Meal shake and nuggets, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy in Anchorage.

Tips For Feeding Sick Palmer Kids

Tips For Feeding Sick Palmer Kids

Though the Anchorage media is more focused on rampant Palmer childhood obesity, there are some underweight children in Alaska.

When Anchorage kids refuse to eat, it is a challenge for Anchorage parents to make sure they get proper nutrition.

Understandably, Palmer kids that usually eat normally often lose their appetite when they are sick. Kids who don’t eat much during a two-day bout with the flu will probably have no health issues from the temporary reduction in nutrition.

Palmer children who undergo chemo treatment at Anchorage hospitals, however, are at greater risk for malnutrition. Ironically, this is the time when adequate calories, vitamins, and minerals are needed the most for ill Palmer children.

Here are some suggestions for helping Anchorage kids with poor appetites receive adequate nutrition:

Don’t let your Palmer child fill up on beverages before meals, serve liquids between meals
Offer small meals throughout the day
Always have healthy snacks available like protein bars, fruit, and cheese
Alter food temperature to see if it makes the food more appealing to your Anchorage child
Try smoothies and soups if your sick Palmer child has a hard time swallowing
If your child is turned off by intense smells or flavors, try bland foods with little seasoning

I want every Palmer child to receive excellent nutrition and the best healthcare available in Alaska. I am excited about a new Anchorage children’s nutrition product and would love to tell you about it. Call me today for more information.

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier <~NearCityOne

Less Meat, More Plants For Healthier Wasilla Kids The meat-heavy Standard American Diet (SAD) is, well, sad. Wasilla diets high in meat and low in plants are the reason we have higher rates of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. If you have been eating the SAD diet for the past 30 years, you probably ought to get your cholesterol checked.

How can we help our Wasilla kids eat more live foods? One of the best ways is to grow them yourself.

You can plant a garden in a yard, in containers on a deck or patio, or even in pots indoors. I have seen each of these types of gardens in my Wasilla neighborhood.

Your garden can be pesticide and hormone free. Your kids will have fun planting, weeding, and harvesting their own ‘crops’. Our children don’t need to grow up believing that carrots and spinach come from the produce section at their nearest Wasilla grocery store.

My family is trying to eat less meat and more plant-based foods. I also sell a fantastic antioxidant plant-based product. For more information on my kids favorite health food, call me today at 801-318-0001.

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Alaska Homes

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier Alaska Homes

Hello Alaska! Anchorage parents do such a great job at keeping their children safe and healthy. They help them with homework, take them to parks and museums, keep up on their well-child visits and immunizations, and feed them healthy well-rounded diets. Here is one more thing parents can do for their children’s health.

Because we live in such a chemical-filled world, any time parents can cut down on the amounts of chemicals used in the home, the better. Here are a few ways to do that using something you probably already have in your pantry: white vinegar.

  • Clean windows with a spray bottle filled with 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and a dab of liquid dish soap. Make sure you label the bottle and keep it out of the reach of children.
  • Clean your drains and pipes with 1 cup baking soda, and 1 cup hot white vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse the drain with hot water. The baking soda and vinegar will foam up in the pipes, and clean away debris and germs.
  • Deodorize your home by boiling a mixture of water and white distilled vinegar in a pot. The vinegar odor will only last a few minutes, and will carry away odors with it.
  • Use distilled white vinegar to keep ants away from your home. Spray undiluted distilled white vinegar along the outside of your home wherever they like to come in.

There are many other natural home cleaning products: just search the internet! Good luck Wasilla parents – you are wonderful, and so are your children!
