Practical Words of Wisdom: BEN WARREN



Ben Warren in an 'activated' nutshell

Ben Warren is one of New Zealand's leading nutritionists and the founder of Be Pure.

Ben strongly believes health and wellness is holistic. In his years of experience he has found what we eat, how we move, how we sleep and how we think all cumulatively affect our health; in both negative and positive ways. "The human body is an amazing and complex thing so looking at it from all angles enables it to function optimally". "Ben and the team at Be Pure believe in empowering people to adopt a simple, mindful and intuitive approach to wellness avoiding a quick fix mentality which does not address issues at their root cause. Their philosophy focuses on long-term lifestyle changes to support total health'. Acknowledging that health means many things to different people. Ben defines health as "having the energy do what excites you now and vitality and longevity for the future".
