The Value Of Supporting Regional And Rural Communities

by Kristina Coates

Our passion for supporting regional and rural communities has been going on for 16 years and we hope to expand on our relationships as we continue to grow. Being Australian Made we love the opportunity to connect with people and businesses alike in towns big and small. I never stop getting a buzz from seeing our products on the shelves in so many different places.


Live Well Health Essentials Australian Made Complementary Health Products


One of Australia’s greatest strengths is the loyalty that lies between home grown businesses and their customers. This core of mutual respect has only deepened in the wake of the onslaught of bushfires and flooding that rural communities have suffered through the past few years.


As an Australian based and owned business run from the Central Coast of Australia, KB Medical Sales with its flagship brand, Live Well Health Essentials is proud to not only reflect this fundamental belief but to have also worked hard to grow and build relationships with rural communities by sourcing and employing locally and giving back to the local businesses that help us. 


One of the most important ways KB Medical Sales & Live Well Health Essentials conducts an ethical and transparent business is through one of our most important relationships, our local stockists.


Now more than ever Australians need to come together to shop and support local businesses. Not only do we want to share with you the places you can buy our products near you, but tell you some of our favourite things about these businesses that hold such vital roles within both our own community and theirs. In order to give back to these beautiful communities of people who stock our products daily - we have some incredible stockists that we’d love to feature and support.


While our Live Well Health Essentials Products can be found online, they can also be conveniently found in over 1000 pharmacies and health care providers, Australia wide. Kath and I this is one of the most personal and important relationships our business has as it allows us to maintain personal contact and human contact with our customers - giving each and every one of you your own journey with Live Well Health Essentials


Our stockists are here to make it as easy as possible for you when accessing Live Well Health Essentials products. Especially when purchasing health care products, you want to make sure you’re picking the ones best suited to you. Ranging from Belly Bug Bags to Live Well Instant Heat Patches, our stockists provide a wide range of products to help assist with all kinds of targeted pain management.


We have an incredible sales team who travel the country to meet with our amazing stockists. We wanted to take this time to show our appreciation for some of our rural and regional stockists that we partner with at Live Well Health Essentials

Hunter Valley 

Whether it is the cascading vineyards, delicious wine and food or local towns, everyone enjoys a weekend away to the Hunter Valley. Not only famous for its incredible wine and food tours (a personal favourite), but the Hunter is also home to championship golf courses and hot air balloon rides – so much for the entire family to enjoy (or just yourself for a sneaky getaway). Nearby to the Barrington Top National Park you can enjoy bushwalking, hiking and even horse riding among the natural wonders of the world. Even if the bush isn’t your thing, you can hire a boat and explore Lake Macquarie!

The Hunter Valley has so much to offer (even in the wintertime) which is why we are so grateful that it is home to our Live Well Health Essentials products (image how cozy those heat pads will feel in your pockets while hiking the mountains) which can be found in both the Branxton and Huntley Piggott’s stores!

Our home - the beautiful Central Coast. A place where beaches meet running waterways, just north of Sydney.

This is not only where we are based and where our employees like to call home, but is the beginning, middle and end point of the company – the heart of Live Well Health Essentials and we could not be more thankful for the support we have received from this community.
