The Pure North Program
At Pure North we believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
We are here to complement our healthcare system, a system that treats sick people. We are here to help people before they get sick.
Pure North is committed to helping you feel better and live longer by focusing on lifestyle choices that prevent chronic illness and disease.
Pure North has evolved over the years into the robust health support program it is today.
We are here to work with you, to develop a health plan specific for you, to meet your health goals.
Each day people make a choice to invest in their health – whether that’s investing in a gym membership, a physiotherapist appointment, or healthy, fresh food. Many of our participants like to think of Pure North as another tool in their healthy living toolkit.
Comprehensive health assessments and health plans include:
Ensuring your body has all of the nutrients it needs to stave off illness is one of our primary goals.
Many Canadians are nutrient deficient and this is because of a number of reasons:
- It can be challenging, with our busy lifestyles, to eat the recommended 7-10 servings of the fruits and vegetables each day.
- Our food isn’t as nutrient-rich as it used to be.
- Stress works against us by depleting key vitamins and minerals.
- Living at Canada’s northern latitude, many of us are vitamin D deficient.
- Many prescription medications interfere with the absorption of vitamin and minerals, or increase the amount of nutrients needed for the body to be sufficient.
At Pure North we strongly believe in the importance of measurable health improvement.
- We continually review the most current research and update our program to ensure our participants are benefiting from the best minds, from all over the world, when it comes to prevention-focused health measures.
- To help track the program’s impact on overall health and the prevention of chronic disease, with participant consent, blood and other health tests are anonymized and amalgamated so the overall effectiveness of the Pure North Program can be evaluated.
