As a female-dominated multi-disciplinary practice, the PURE Health Centre has become home, not only to health loving and motivated practitioners, a rock-solid all female staff and support staff, but also the home of health care and advice for many families in pursuit of a better way of living.
This almost all-female team consists of professionals who also juggle the daily tasks and responsibilities of being mothers, some single moms and step-mothers, wives, being the care-taker and bread winner of a family, sisters, friends and daughters.
They are often asked how it is that they have managed to grow individually as well as a team and business, and the answer is simple – they are stronger together! The famous saying ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ is the very concept and basis that keeps the PURE Health Centre growing and evolving. This dynamic team of women have used this concept to build on their own successes and in turn extend this to each other, to the patients who visit the PURE Health Centre for care and ultimately the community at large. They holistically address all aspects of life – mental, emotional and physical. While their psychologist, Karen Bradford assists in promoting mental and emotional well-being, thier optometrist, Iria Da Silva, homeopaths, Drs Bianca De Canha and Erika Hart and biokineticist, Samantha Stacey, take care of and assist their to optimise their physical health.
The team must also express its appreciation for the one male in the village – the backbone of the practice – chiropractor, Dr Adam Sayers. The team considers it a privilege to be able to serve the community, to bring health and wellness to the families that make up the village, and invites the public to join the movement that has made the PURE Health Centre the ‘Health Hub’ of the West Rand. Through supporting each other, be it fellow practitioners, staff or patients, the team has learned that the community is strong together.

A lasting impression
Event planning and coordination needs passion, an eye for detail, patience and commitment to clients. Weddings, in particular, need planners who will listen to the bride while being attentive to the groom’s needs too.
An event planner has to relieve the client of the burden of stressful situations, and understand that each event is particularly important – especially to the client. Clients need to be reassured, and sometimes counselled, particularly when they experience the natural highs and lows that come with the major events in life.

Skole se rol op die pad na vrouwees
Vele ma’s verstaan die uitdaging om hul dogters te begelei op hul roete na vrouwees. Met die skool se ondersteunende rol in hierdie verband kan ‘n dogter se drome oor haar toekoms uitgebytel en bevorder word deur ingeligte keuses. Elke ouer wil tog weet – “Ek doen wat reg en die beste vir my kind is”.
Die volgende is goeie riglyne wat gevolg en doelwitte wat nagestreef kan word in dogters se vormingsjare:
Jou dogter het positiewe rolmodelle nodig. Kinders leer die beste deur kennis prakties toe te pas en deur herhaalde blootstelling en vaslegging. Die aard van hierdie blootstelling gaan noodwendig haar lewensuitkyk en selfkonsep beïnvloed. Positiewe rolmodelle verwys na waardes asook vak belangstellings.
‘n Positiewe leeromgewing is baie meer as net die oordra van vakverwante feite. Jou dogter se leergierigheid en passie word aangewakker en die effek daarvan is dikwels langdurig. By die skool en tuis moet sy blootgestel word aan gesonde en gebalanseerde sieninge rondom geslagstereotipering.
‘n Gesonde siening beïnvloed en verbreed haar opsies vir ’n moontlike loopbaan. In haar leeromgewing moet sy gedurende hierdie jare deur haar onderwysers en vriende emosioneel gekoester word.
Sy moet met vrymoedigheid haar unieke idees kan deel want dit bepaal hoe sy haarself in die samelewing gaan handhaaf. Ouers moet die waarde van die skool in die vorming van hul dogters as vroue kan insien.
Daar word sy geleer dat dit goed is om te droom, dat sy mag verskil van ander, dat die lewe nie perfek is nie, dat konflik nie altyd negatief is nie – en dat teleurstelling deel van die lewe en haar leerskool is en dikwels sukses voorafgaan.

Be in control of your own destiny
When the reality of life hits you hard, you have two choices – accept it, or fight back. Yes, life happens to all of us, but how we live it is what makes the difference. Every morning you have a new set of choices. Some might be right and some might be wrong. Learn from the outcomes of these choices and choose differently tomorrow. It is never too late to make the right choices.
Be conscious of your daily blessings and live in gratitude always.
Everybody has a huge responsibility towards the youth of today to educate them for the future of our country. Communities, care-givers, the school system and individuals alike share this responsibility, not only in academia, but in life too.
Charity begins at home, in one’s own community. We are confronted with the needs of others on a daily basis. Small gestures can mean the world to someone else. A genuine smile and warm greeting is a great start and costs nothing. Your humanity could be just what is needed in that moment and will have a lasting impact on that individual. Make a difference!
A hand that gives freely is already open and ready to receive.
Dream BIG and hold onto those dreams, no matter what. No one can take your dreams and ambitions away from you unless you let them. Choose to be in control of your own destiny!
