PreKure’s vision is to prevent chronic disease and extend the human healthspan.
As you're aware, PreKure exists to prevent chronic disease and extend the human health-span, but right here and right now, it's actually COVID-19 that's posing a big threat to the human health-span and our economy.
This could be unsettling for you, so we're drawing on the expertise of our health and medical faculty to virtually support you, your loved ones and your family with your questions and anything we can do to help during this time.
Every night at 8pm (NZT) we will be doing a Facebook Live with one of our faculty experts about how you can stay safe, healthy and well. Click here for our Facebook page.
We're here to offer support, community and credible advice at this time.
Together we can get through this.
Turn your passion for health and wellness into a career you love.
Health Coaches are currently the missing link in healthcare. Become a PreKure certified Health Coach and support the tāngata whai ora (person seeking wellness). We understand that working on the tāngata whai ora’s agenda to support their health aspirations, and ultimately health lifespan, is paramount in making the critical lifestyle changes required to improve their wellbeing.
We train skilled Health Coaches who recognise the impact of working with the ‘whānau’ and ‘whanaungatanga’ as a collective. Our Health Coaches provide support with honest and true relationships that build on the tāngata whai ora’s strengths and recognise their barriers to achieve their health aspirations.
By doing this certificate you’ll be recognised as a credible and qualified Health Coach and have one of the most meaningful jobs on the planet and see better health outcomes for the collective.

Prevention before cure
We want to create a movement and change medicine from the top down and the bottom up.
The medical system we have today spends most of its budget on treating sickness and very little on disease prevention.
On average, we spend the last 15 years of our lives suﬀering from the complications of one of the big four chronic diseases - cancer, dementia, heart disease or diabetes. But the problem is that we medicate the symptoms, rather than treating the root cause of the disease.
PreKure sees the new world of medicine as preventative, customer-centric, and future-focused. It is based on thriving, not just surviving. It’s a rapidly moving and exciting feld that can, and will, deliver health—or as we like to call it, a PreKure —to those who need it most.
Together we can change medicine
A study by the World Health Organisation in 2015 found of New Zealand’s 4.5M population:
Life years to be had: 4.5M
Life years that were lost: 1M
88% of those years lost were caused by chronic preventable conditions.

Making an Impact
As a new social enterprise, we are already making a difference to the lives of thousands of people.The ‘give’ side of PreKure is offering free prevention medicine programs, giving participants the tools and inspiration to help shift themselves from illness to wellness via our PreKureME for FREE program. We have also established a number of support groups to help people seeking wellness.
We have supported the establishment of 12 community groups to reverse Type 2 Diabetes. These are currently located in cities around New Zealand and Australia.
We facilitate an online video conference every month to support the groups and encourage interaction and sharing of ideas. Click here for more information on these groups.
GP Peer Support Group
We have also started a peer group for GPs that are interested in discussing or learning more about how nutrition, in particular low-carbohydrate nutrition, can help the treatment of chronic diseases. This group is open to all interested medical professionals and also meets online once a month. You can earn your CPD/CME attending these meetings. Email us here if you would like to find out more information.
This 21 day health challenge all about YOU. We give your wellbeing a boost and kickstart your healthy habits.
