- Chiropractic is on the rise in Kenya. Dr. Jeff Kahrs and Dr. Warren Bruhl recently adjusted hundreds of patients during a mission trip sponsored by Northbrook-based charity Dreamweaver International. Bruhl and Kahrs experience office hours 'in the bush' in photo. Working under an Acacia tree in a tiny village near Amboseli, Bruhl and Kahrs learned about the Masaai's many natural herbal treatments derived from trees and shrubs growing on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, not far from their headquarters. Their hope would be the inclusion of the Massai's natural methods for healing along with chiropractic and the advanced medical procedures and remedies Dreamweaver International can provide, creating a thoroughly comprehensive method for their needs to help heal the region. The Rift Valley of Kenya includes some of the most under resourced people in the world, but harbors amongst them the highest level of ingenuity, ability and desire to live Bruhl has ever known. Dr. Warren Bruhl serves as Director of Dreamweaver International and as the Executive Director of partner program, Gear for Goals.
