There are some things you should always have on hand just case you need them. While traditional medicine would probably point to aspirin and some bright pink liquid anti-diarrheal stuff, this “holistic pharmacist” has some other things in my natural medicine cabinet that you may want to consider for yours.
Over the last few years, I’ve helped many people pull through health and life crisis’s. And recently when I recommended soaking in a bath of salts to a friend and he didn’t have any, it occurred to me that people are just not stocked up on the right things and I want to help.
After all, you should be ready too. One of my friends told me that “I always have tricks up my sleeve”.
Well intended and received.
But, these are not tricks.
These are natural approaches to wellness that should not be used as medical advice or pharmaceutical advice, but as a guide and for informational purposes only (you can read my full disclosure policy here). If you want to take a more natural approach to wellness, there are some things you should always have on hand.
There many posts on this website. After all, I’ve been creating content online for 12 years and am in my 11th year of calling this special place on the internet (theDomesticLifeStylist.com), home.
Even so, this is one of the most important posts you will read.
It’s not meant to all encompassing, but this will certainly give you a good start. After all, I have to leave some things out for the book I’ll write one day.
Who knows? Until then, save, print and share this post with those you like and love.
There is no reason why you shouldn’t have several bottles of hydrogen peroxide in your house at any given time. It’s for everything from cleaning small scrapes, mouth rinsing, ear wax removal and can even be used as an antiseptic. The best part is, after all these years it only costs less than a $1.00.
When I was a little girl growing up in the Caribbean, my mom was always ready to soak a body part in a bath of Epsom salt. I had my fair share of ankle sprains and twists while walking the hilly roadsides on my way home from school.
Here’s why Epsom salt is so beneficial: The magnesium in Epsom salt has been known to provide relief from everything from headaches, constipation and body aches for years. So stock up, you’ll want to have it in your home before you even need it.
Ridge Crest Anxiety Free
To give you an indication of how I feel about RidgeCrest Anxiety Free, I thought I ran out this morning and I was about to freak out. Especially during the busy holiday season, this Stress Free Complex is something you definitely want on hand. Navigating the holidays, family expectations and the expectations we often put on ourselves during this time of year, can be a lot. Not to mention, many people are navigating illness, job loss and bereavement during this time. I was so happy to have some RidgeCrest Anxiety Free to share with my friend when she was going through a particularly difficult time recently.
RidgeCrest Stress Free Complex is made with natural herbs, botanicals and is holistic way to maintain calm and well-being despite life’s stressors. When you’re going through a particularly stressful event, that’s not the time to try to figure out how to get calm. You need to use all your time and resources to find at least a temporary solution to minimize the stressful event and to take action.
If you can’t think straight enough or aren’t able to get a sense of calm during that time, things are going to be even more challenging.
This is why you should have RidgeCrest Stress Free Complex in your natural medicine cabinet. You may not need it now, but you may need it soon.
OK, this one is not just one item, but several items in one. If you haven’t tried essential oils yet, now is a good time to get on board. Since it is the Christmas season, it’s timely to note that essentials oils have been around since the three wise men journeyed there with essentials oils like myrrh and frankincense to greet the new born baby.
That means that essential oils have been around from the beginning of time. Essential oils are not new to natural medicine, but it’s OK if they’re new to you. From using them as insect repellents or even as a tool to boost immunity, there is so much to learn and love.
I admit, it can be a lot. Your best bet (if you’re just starting out with essential oils) is to start with some of most popular essential oils that you can find in a kit like this one.
My first introduction to activated charcoal came decades ago when I worked as a pharmacy technician. Growing up on an island, of course fish was a staple part of the diet. But no matter how careful people were, it was inevitable that they would get a bad case of “fish poisoning”
That’s when they would come to the pharmacy and ask for activated charcoal. That’s because activated works by binding toxins and chemicals in the body and helps prevent the body from further absorbing them.
When will you encounter a toxin?
That’s the thing, you never know.
But what I do know is no one ever plans to get a case of food poisoning. And all you need to do is to have had encountered one case of gastric distress caused by viruses, bacteria or parasites to know that you never want to experience it again.
So don’t wait, stock up your natural medicine cabinet with the tools you need to support robust wellness and immune support today .
I certainly am.
