Without knowing a single thing about a person, I’d say I could paint a pretty accurate picture of them by examining; the inside of their car, in their purse, or peeking inside their medicine cabinet.
It’s too bad I don’t have a car or carry a purse 😜 But I’m pretty sure our wellness cabinet would tell you all you need to know about our lifestyle!
Now I also want to say that this post is *not intended to give medical advice*. If you’re experiencing any symptoms or have any underlying health conditions please seek the advice of your family physician. This is just to give you a peek at some of our wellness cabinet must haves!

Leefy Prana – this is a rapid absorption full-spectrum tumeric supplement that is designed to reduce pain and inflammation. We love reaching for this one at the first sign of a headache, tummy discomforts, muscle soreness, or any other signs of inflammation in the body.
Protein Powder – we always add protein to our morning smoothies or have a scoop after a workout. And I’m not kidding when I say that we’ve tried no less than 20 different protein brands off the shelf. Many of them are gritty, taste like chalk, too sweet, or have an overpowering artificial aftertaste. This Just Ingredients protein powder is the absolute BEST! She’s the ingredient guru and has made the best tasting protein powder with some of the cleanest ingredients. And I have a 10% discount for my blog readers with the code: ANDREA
Genexa – this is not a debate for conventional meds vs. natural remedies. I think there’s a time and place for both. So for those that want to keep some conventional meds on hand, Genexa has one of the cleanest lines of medicine. Especially when it comes to children’s cough syrup, allergy relief, or pain / fever meds. They don’t use any dye (like most off the shelf) and no artificial additives. It’s the same active ingredients without the unnecessary stuff.
Ion Sinus – this is a great nasal spray made with humic extract and purified water. Not only does it help to clear the sinuses if you’re stuffy, but it helps to support your nasal and gut microbiome.
Arnica Gel – arnica is a homeopathic remedy for pain and inflammation, and this topical gel is what we grab to soothe sore muscles after a workout. Or for my hubby’s 37 year old achy joints after a tough rugby game 😂.
Colloidal Silver – this one is a bit controversial.. and with everything I share I STRONGLY encourage you to do your own research. Become your own health advocate. You have the power to decide what to put in, on, and around your body. And you need to figure out what you feel comfortable with using. But colloidal silver is something we always keep on hand for immune support and for topical applications and this is the brand that we use.
Bamboo Plasters – I had no idea my kids were allergic to bandaids. Every time they would take one off, there’d be a big red itchy mark from where the adhesive was. I just thought it was a normal… until my eldest was severely burned by the adhesive / latex from a plaster on his cheek. And I vowed to never use them again. Until I found these patch strips which are made of 100% organic bamboo fibre, no latex, no plastics or petrochemicals. And we have NEVER had a reaction with these plasters. They’re an absolute must for every mama to keep on hand.
Hydration Packs – I’m not going to lie, I grew up on blue sports drinks (and I loved them 😂). Until I realised what I was consuming and ditched them cold turkey. Check out some of these ingredients. Red 40, Sugar, Glycerol Ester Of Rosin, Caramel Color, Sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Food Acid (330), Flavour, Colour (129), Sweetener (955) >>> just a few ingredients taken from the back of some popular sports drinks. There are WAY safer alternatives to electrolyte / hydration drinks and Cure is one of our favourites. Checkout these ingredients:
Organic Coconut Water Powder, Organic Berry Flavor, Non-GMO Citric Acid, Pink Himalayan Salt, Sodium Citrate, Organic Pomegranate Juice Powder, Organic Beet Root Juice Powder, Organic Stevia Extract, Lemon Juice Powder, Monk Fruit Extract.
Sodium Ascorbate – this is a powdered form of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) buffered with a sodium salt. We add it to smoothies in the morning or follow immune-boosting protocols when there are sniffles going around.
Active Skin Repair – This is something that’s relatively new in our wellness cabinet and we’re absolutely obsessed! It’s a medical grade skin repair spray which is SO easy to squirt on scraped knees (zero stinging!). Taken directly from their website “We use natural ingredients and a proprietary manufacturing process to replicate the same molecule your white blood cells produce in response to injury. Active Skin Repair does not use toxic chemicals, synthetic antibiotics or petroleum, and is biodegradable.”
