Low-Tox Your Life to Support your Hormones

There has been a lot of talk about oestrogen dominance lately in the health and wellness space – and for good reason – it's time to start balancing our hormones! Oestrogen dominance is becoming more and more common in the modern world. Ooestrogen dominance occurs when the body is producing too much oestrogen or is low in progesterone which means oestrogen levels are high in comparison – and the body struggles to clear all of this excess oestrogen. What does Oestrogen Dominance look like: In…

17 Healthy Eating Hacks to Save You Time and Money

One of the challenges we see in our BePure Clinic clients and in the BePure Community is taking the principles of eating whole real food and turning it into an enjoyable sustainable lifestyle. We don’t want you slaving away in the kitchen every spare moment. Nor do we want healthy eating to cost us all our available resources. It’s not practical and it’s a sure fire way to ensure we only stick to a “plan” for a short period of time. Let’s face it; when we use up all our stores in terms of…

The Importance of Vitamin D and How to Get More

Longer daylight hours means more time outside. We are coming into the time of year that is crucial to our health all year long. But how so? It’s common knowledge that we absorb vitamin D from the sun through our skin, but few people realise that this can only happen in summer, during the hours of 11am and 3pm. This is because UVB, sun rays that penetrate the atmosphere and into our skin’s thickest layer, are only effective when the sun is at its highest strength. But with exposure to…

How to Start Your Day Right

The one thing we can be absolutely certain of is that day will come after night. Much as we might not like that morning alarm, it signals the start of a new day and things we must do.

I like to think of the old adage; “Start as you mean to go on.”Finding a solid morning routine that is comprised of easy-to-do and consistent…

The Basics of Eating to Nourish and Honour Your Body

Clean eating is a term that took over the wellness world a couple of years back. The term doesn't have a strict definition, and means something different to everyone. For some it is positive and empowering, and for others it has negative connotations implying that the opposite of clean eating must therefore be 'dirty'. This perspective supports the 'good and bad' foods, or 'healthy or naughty' dichotomy which we don't think is super helpful when it comes to cultivating a wholesome and…

A Nourishing Bedtime Routine

We know that sleep is a vital pillar of health. It can help with muscle recovery, children’s brain development and research has shown it can even help with weight loss. For a lot of us, sleep is often an afterthought. We go about our days - and evenings - and expect that when our heads hit that pillow, slumber will come. For some, it's not that simple. Sleep can be incredibly elusive. Unfortunately, the negative effects of under sleeping are also cumulative. Consistently under sleeping is a…

What Exercise is Right for You?

Exercise is very personal. Just as there is no perfect diet for everyone, finding what exercise works for you will be different to someone else. Exercise is very personal. Choosing the best workout to achieve vitality, rejuvenation and longevity, is more about understanding yourself, your lifestyle and your life responsibilities than about mastering a tricky yoga pose, running 10 km, competing in crossfit or taking a spin class. When putting together an exercise plan it is a good idea to…

What Key Nutrients Are We Missing?

Eating a nutrient-dense diet that is right for your genetic makeup is integral to gaining optimal health. But can we obtain all the essential vitamins and minerals we need from diet alone? Our ancestors didn’t need nutritional support, so do we? It’s a question I’m asked a lot in my clinic and at BePure.In short my answer is no. We can’t obtain everything we need from our diet alone. I’m a massive proponent of eating real nutrient-dense food based largely on eating foods our ancestors would…
