Michelle Matthewman, Founder of Caim & Able has been involved in healing with natural elements for much of her teens and her entire adult life. She has studied Botanical Medicine in Sydney, Australia and then at the renowned Hippocrates Institute in Palm Beach Florida.
Ever since an adjustment from a physical therapist in her early thirties, she has lived with chronic and severe pain – nothing offered relief. Keen to find an alternative to the constant pain killers, she discovered the very real and rapid benefit, of magnesium chloride.
In 2013 the Australian government announced its withdrawal of funding from independent women’s shelters, these were shelters specifically created to help women and children escaping domestic violence…. in less than 12 months 80% of those shelters were forced to close their doors.
Now, on any given night in Australia up to 66 % of women are turned away from those shelters that are left.
This was the genesis of Caim & Able, the range was launched from a desire to make a positive change to the lives of others – Michelle made a commitment to help raise funds to get those doors open again. By purchasing Caim & Able products, you are doing more than getting a gorgeous product – you are now part of that commitment – you are helping fund the safety of the women and children fleeing domestic violence in Australia. You, are the active ingredient.
The therapeutic collection of salts and natural skin care range includes Body Scrubs, Bath Salts and Body Sprays, all developed for their beautiful nurturing, nourishing and rejuvenating blends. All are rich in magnesium to deliver via skin absorption, a safe, effective and rapid dose of magnesium to the body.
We believe in the timeless quality of natural products and in the value of therapeutic skin care. All products are of high quality that not only leave your skin feeling sublime, but provide vital nutrition to your body through your skin.
Michelle’s experience with magnesium chloride shows that it helps to reduce pain but research also shows that a magnesium deficiency contributes to a host of other ailments such as anxiety, restless legs syndrome, osteoporosis, insomnia, heart disease, diabetes and it has even been linked to signs of ageing.
Oral supplements don’t get the job done with up to 90% of magnesium taken orally being excreted. With Science now proving the best way to get a really good boost is with a particular form of magnesium (chloride) through the skin – so simply scrub, soak and spray your way to better health.
