Say no to GMO's

Did you know that many GMO's (genetically modified organisms) are not only registered as a food but also as a pesticide? 

Many GMO's produce their own pesticides to kill bugs that might try to eat the plant. 

I don't know about you, but thinking about a plant being genetically changed in a lab to produce toxic chemicals to kill bugs so that WE can then eat it is a pretty scary thing.

Would you ever spray pesticides on your food before eating it?

Natural remedies for ear infections

source: family-wellness.com
We see kids with ear infections (ear pain) pretty frequently in our office

If you go to your medical doctor you are going to either get antibiotics which typically don't make sense at all because if there actually is an infection it will most likely be viral in nature which antibiotics don't work at all for. If that doesn't work they are going to want to do surgery and put tubes in their ears.

Drugs or surgery. Those are your options in the medical world.

Why not try something less invasive and natural? We see results all the time by adjusting kids. Their Eustachian tubes (Ear canal) are not slanted down like adults and fluid can get backed up. Getting them adjusted can help release the fluid and allow the ear canal to function properly and drain the fluids.


The American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines now state antibiotics should not be prescribed unless there is an obvious ear infection. They recommend the wait-and-see approach (without treatment) for:

  • Children 6 - 23 months with mild inner ear pain in one ear for less than 48 hours and a temperature less than 102.2 F
  • Children 24 months and older with mild inner ear pain in one or both ears for less than 48 hours and a temperature less than 102.2 F

Switch to glass containers for your health

Lifefactory glass bottles, available at Kehres Health
Research is becoming more conclusive that all plastic containers (including BPA-free) leech estrogen like compounds into the contents of the containers even if they aren't heated.

Increased levels of this compound has been linked to everything from cancer to diabetes and ADHD.

Switching to glass is easy! Glass lasts longer and stays cleaner than plastic. Consider making the switch! 


Glass Lifefactory bottles are available in a variety of sizes and colors at our Saginaw chiropractic office and Midland chiropractic office. Visit www.KehresHealth.com or contact us at 989-607-4322 for more information.
