Boost your immune system: sleep

If you don't sleep enough your body will get worn down and you will eventually get sick! 

Sleep is when your body repairs itself, muscular repair, mental repair, immune repair, etc. 

From 10 PM until 6 AM is when most of the healing takes place. Make sure you are getting the best quality sleep you can within this time frame!

Boost your immune system: gut health

Did you know that the gut is considered by many to be a second brain?

The health of your gut dictates the overall health of your body as research has shown that it's the most powerful immune organ.

Also, if your stomach and intestines aren't digesting food properly you are always going to be deficient in nutrients vital for repair no matter how healthy you eat.

Healthy kids get adjusted

At Kehres Health & Chiropractic we regularly adjust kids and babies. It is safe, gentle and helps keep kids healthy. 

Babies and toddlers can't easily communicate to tell us they are in pain. Chiropractic adjustments is a way to reduce and prevent pain naturally.

Recipe: Spinach Applesauce

By: Jen Kehres

One of our toddler's favorite foods right now is spinach applesauce. It tastes great, has less sugar than store bought applesauce and is easy to make!

I use the Beaba baby food maker, it steams and purees making cooking and clean up easy and quick.

I peel and chop four apples and put in the Beaba, then I fill the rest of it with organic spinach and mixed greens (approximately 3 cups). After it steams, I drain the excess water, add a slab of Kerrygold butter, a few dashes of cinnamon and blend.

If you don't have an all in one baby food maker, here is a recipe:
  • 4 apples, peeled and chopped into large chunks
  • 3 cups of organic spinach and/or mixed greens
  • Cook apples with a little bit of water for 15 minutes, or until soft. Add spinach the last few minutes until wilted. 
  • Use blender or food processor to puree apples and spinach with 1 tsp. cinnamon and a slice of grass-fed butter.
Delaney loves it warm or cold! This food is great for older children and adults too.

Jeff Janis Kale Smoothie

Incredible game last night by Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jeff Janis! Leading the team in receiving and key plays to get them to their 6-0 undefeated record!

That's great an all but what's REALLY cool is that he now has his OWN smoothie named after him! "Earn The Dream," at the Refuge Cafe in Wisconsin!

Nobody has earned the dream more than Jeff! He has always made health a priority, before the Packers he was a chiropractic intern at Kehres Health & Chiropractic.
