Organizing my Natural Medicine Cabinet

 This week on my Organize Now! Challenge, we are organizing our "Medicine" Cabinets.

My first thought was... what medicine?  

Honestly, I do everything naturally and I was a little nervous to share this because, once again, we are against the grain!

We seem to do a lot of things differently than most people but I will show you anyway.

First off, I want to say that this was our decision that my husband and I made together before we had kids and luckily, we have found a great doctor that supports and encourages us.

Secondly, I am not a doctor and I am not prescribing anything here.  I am simply sharing what we have, use, and what works for us.

We are very serious about our health and sickness prevention.  

Because of this, we have never had to put any of our kids on a prescription medication.
(Ages of our kids are 7, 5, 4 and 8 months)


This is what we use:

Supplements

We  take supplements daily and have for over 13 years.  I choose Shaklee because they are the #1 natural nutrition company with the purest ingredients and we have always been happy with our results.
