The best time to prepare for extreme temperatures is before they occur. The elderly, those who work or exercise outdoors, infants and children, the homeless and people with chronic medical conditions are most vulnerable to the effects of extreme heat. “Take precautions to prevent serious health effects such as heat exhaustion, heat stroke or even death. Stay cool, drink lots of water to prevent dehydration…Read More

Infant Massage

By 380news | Home & Garden

Infant Massage is a wonderful way to bond with a newborn. The benefits include growth; reduce cortisol, increased bone density, and duration of sleep in newborn and children of all ages. The nervous system has one way that all information is taken in, which is through touch and then muscle response. This is how the nervous system sends back out the response. Massage helps stimulate the building of these pathways from the very beginning. If babies have other issues such as suckling at the breast, gastrointestinal development, or motor control…Read More

Meet Colleen Watson, Stretch 4 Life’s New Colleague  Have you ever heard of Orofacial Myology? Stretch 4 Life hadn’t either until we met this professional lady named Colleen Watson. Colleen, an Orofacial Myologist, just so happened to be in the booth next to us at Martie Whittekin’s Natural Health Fest in Richardson.

As we discovered, Colleen does this same thing…Read More

Why Bumble Bees Make Terrible Backseat Drivers

Even if you don’t fear the buzz, this one’s pretty scary. Hear one Farmers® agent’s almost un-bee-lievable story from the Hall of Claims I answered the phone one day to the sound of a woman shrieking, “A bee f lew in the car!

She’d driven to a nearby lake to pick up her husband and his boat after…Read More

By 380news | Home & Garden

PROSPER, TX – While the most inhospitably hot days are still weeks away, Prosper residents and businesses are under Stage 1 water restrictions on automatic sprinkler systems, the least limiting of the three stages.

Each of the three is bordered on the…Read More
