Thanks for a good 40 YEARS 1ST MARCH 2018


On March 1st Beanfreaks Health Food Centres will celebrate its fortieth Anniversary.


When Beanfreaks CEO Mr Kevin Bowles and His wife Hilary

first opened their doors to the public, it’s

hard to envisage how the health food industry would change and that forty years later we would still have a thriving business.


Beanfreaks prides itself on being a family business and their children Jeremie, and Victoria also make up the Beanfreaks Team.

Jeremie is a qualified Medical Herbalist, and is Director of

Beanfreaks operations, and Victoria is a qualified Nutritionist with a Master’s Degree in complementary health.

Victoria is our Technical Director, overseeing all training, ensuring our staff have the most up-to date information.

Kevin was inspired by the whole food movement of the 1970’s, and had changed his own health pathway through diet and using good nutritional supplements, and was keen to develop stores That offered those opportunities for his customers.

Week No 14| 27/03/2019


Taking back control!

It's sobering, but many people spend longer researching their holidays or selecting what car they're planning to buy than they do before making decisions about their health. If you've grown up in the Western world, you've no doubt been conditioned from an early age to see your doctor as a bit of a 'god', they who must be trusted and obeyed. But times are changing. Should you really be placing such a burden of responsibility on your GP/consultant or are there better ways of doing this, such as through 'shared decision-making' or more informed choice, whether it's for us or our dependents?

This week both our articles have been written for all you 'Health Creators' out there who are actively participating in your own health journey - or who would like to start. Our lead article looks at the concept and role of informed choice in healthcare. We hope it gives you some food for thought and sows the seeds of an idea that you can actually retain control over your healthcare decisions. Sometimes I think the terms 'informed choice' and 'informed consent' repel people in their formality. Really it just means that you deserve to be given all the information necessary for making a balanced, informed decision, with or without input from your health professional. Hopefully, it'll mean that you'll devote more time to research before saying yes to healthcare decisions, much as you would before paying for a holiday.

Our second piece features a video from ANH's founder, Rob Verkerk. It's the first in a series we'll be doing to explain what our Blueprint for Health System Sustainability really means for you and why we're so passionate about it. This short video, along with a transcript, talks about creating a universal language around healthcare so we can understand each other in order to make better informed decisions. 

In health naturally, sustainably and properly informed
