Heart Fit Clinic Featured in Options Magazine as Cutting Edge Private Healthcare Clinic in Calgary

The Heart Fit Clinic has been a private healthcare clinic in Calgary since 2007. It has been helping people prevent and reverse heart disease through its innovative approaches to heart health.

The Heart Fit Clinic, the only private healthcare clinic in Calgary exclusively focuses on heart disease and works with patient’s healthcare professionals that include family doctors, internal medicine physicians, and cardiologists in Calgary and surrounding areas. Family physicians are great at determining conventional risk factors such as hypertension, high cholesterol or diabetes; however over 50% of heart attacks and strokes occur with people with normal cholesterol. Internal medicine cardiology, and cardiologists are great with emergencies and determining advanced stages of heart disease, but the majority of heart attacks occur with blockages that are less than 70%.

Cardiology stress tests, which have been done for over 50 years, will only show advanced stages of coronary artery disease. This could leave many people still on the path of a heart attack or stroke even after being given a clean bill of health. The Heart Fit Clinic, a private healthcare clinic in Calgary, focuses on screening tests that will show sub-clinical disease.

Many times cardiologists will resort to heart stent or heart bypass surgery, when External Counterpulsation therapy, behaviour lifestyle modification and medication therapies will show equally good, if not better, outcomes. The only private health care clinic focusing on heart disease treatment in Calgary is the Heart Fit Clinic. Their heart disease treatment includes; medical fitness programs, heart disease nutrition, cardiac yoga and External Counterpulsation Therapy.

Calgary’s Heart Fit Clinic is the only clinic in Alberta that does External Counterpulsation Therapy, also known as EECP or ECP. “ECP is one of the best evidence-based treatments people can get for heart disease” says Diamond Fernandes, director of the Heart Fit Clinic. This cutting edge treatment is done all over the world, including the United States. It is a treatment for people with coronary artery disease and heart failure treatment. It is an ideal treatment for people with angina, congestive heart failure, small vessel disease, or a blocked heart stent or bypass.
