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.

Sweet tea, not a healthy drink




Many people think that drinking tea is a healthier option than soda. Which it definitely can be, but not when it is loaded with sugar such as sweet tea! The best tea is made at home, if you want to sweeten it, add a bit of local honey.

A large McDonald's Sweet Tea has more sugar in it than five Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!

Eat Real Food

Eat real food: The easiest rule to live by when trying to get healthy.

Real food is not made in a factory.


Real food does not have an ingredients' list.

90% of most grocery stores are made up of fake, chemically made or processed foods.

Shop the perimeter of the grocery store and spend the majority of your time in the produce section!

Healthy Home: Honest Co. Organic Healing Balm

Using healthy and safe products in our home has always been a priority for us, especially now that we have a daughter. 

Children, especially newborns, are more vulnerable to toxins and chemicals than adults are. Their immune systems and nervous systems are still developing, meaning they are not very good at processing and eliminating toxins yet. By decreasing a child's exposure to chemicals, it can help protect them from illness and allergies. 

Unfortunately, many skin care products such as diaper cream contains parabens, fragrance (a variety of chemicals can hide under this broad label, and babies smell good enough, they don't need fragrance!) and phthalates.

When looking at bath and body products, I visit the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep database for more information.

The Honest Company carries a lot of great, all-natural products that have very good, low ratings. We've been using the healing balm on Delaney if she has a bit of diaper rash or when her skin was really dry when she was a newborn. It can also be used on adults for dry skin or ezcema. 

The Honest Company products are available at Kehres Health & Chiropractic in our Saginaw chiropractic office and Midland chiropractic office. Contact us at 989-607-4322 or visit our website www.kehreshealth.com.

Motion: critical for life

Motion is critical for life and is required for the function of every organ and cell in our bodies.

When joints in our bodies are restricted and not moving properly they send pain signals (nociceptors) to our brain. This is a warning signal that something is going wrong in that area of your body. The warning signals start way before you can actually feel pain.

When you get proper joint motion back into those joints, our bodies have anti-inflammatory signals called mechanoreceptors that inhibit and over shadow the pain signals. These receptors are also a required nutrient for brain function and communication with the body.

Chiropractors focus on getting proper motion back into joints, not only can this reduce your pain, but it can prevent further damage to that joint.

See a chiropractor to keep your joints moving and your nerves functioning properly!


Visit www.kehreshealth.com or contact 989-607-4322 to see us at our Midland chiropractor or Saginaw chiropractor office.

Inspiration: Opportunity

 
 
Many people talk about how they never "got the opportunity," to do something in life but in most cases it's not just something that comes to you. You need to go out and create your own opportunities.

Opportunity does not come to people sitting on the couch watching TV every night.

It comes to those who are out looking for it... the athlete who trains hard in the off season. The kid walking around the neighborhood with a shovel every time it snows. The employee that works an extra hour off the clock to finish a project. The person who takes the time to make their health a priority.

It could take two months or 20 years, but opportunity will come when you are out looking for it.

Kehres Health & Chiropractic now carries The Honest Company

Kehres Health & Chiropractic is excited to announce that we now carry The Honest Company products! I have always been hesitant to carry lotions, shampoos and other products like this because of their EWG (Environmental Working Group) ratings. Many products that claim to be healthy and non-toxic don't always have the best rating and aren't as healthy as they claim.

The Honest Company products have excellent ratings! Right now we carry baby wipes, lotion, diaper balm, shampoo and body wash, hand sanitizer and chapstick.

Also, The Honest Company was created by Jessica Alba!


These products are available at our Midland chiropractic office (601 E. Wackerly Road, #2, Midland, MI) and our Saginaw chiropractic office (4882 Gratiot Road, #13, Saginaw, MI).

Surround yourself with the right people

Crabs in a bucket, which crab are you?

Making a change is not easy. Some people will tell you that you can't do it, others will literally try to stop you from making a lifestyle change.

People don't like to feel left out, but they also don't want to get out of their comfort zone. They are stuck right where they are and never want to change.

Crabs in a bucket is the perfect term to describe this situation. Any crab that tries to climb out literally gets pulled right back in.

Have you surrounded yourself with people who will help you change or people that will pull you back down?

Prevent and treat the flu naturally [NBC 25]

Dr. Dan Kehres, contributor on NBC 25
photo by Joel Feick, NBC 25 morning show anchor
Want to stay healthy this winter? There are many things you can do to prevent the flu naturally. 

Here are my top tips for preventing the flu naturally:
  • Take a natural "flu shot," a veggie shake
  • We tend to get sick more in the winter, and the biggest change is less sunlight. Supplement with Vitamin D3 to boost your immune system!
  • Days are shorter in the winter, we are meant to sleep more. Be sure you are getting good sleep and going to bed early. 
  • Get out of pain. Back pain, knee pain, migraines, etc. causes stress on your body. Stress wears on your immune system making you more susceptible to getting sick. Chiropractors can help relieve pain, Kehres Health & Chiropractic has offices in Saginaw and Midland. 
Do you feel like you are coming down with something or are you already sick? 

Try these tips to beat the flu quickly:

  • Increased your Vitamin D3 to 15,000-20,000 per day (for adults)
  • 80% of your immune system is in your stomach, take probiotics to help heal your stomach
  • Put a heating bad on your stomach, this will also help heal your stomach. Fevers have a purpose -- to kill bacteria and viruses, you can mimic this with a heating pad. 
  • Sleep as much as possible, this is when your body heals.
