Mountain Health Team

Mountain Health Team Mountain Health Team is Airdrie's premier Naturopathic clinic where we provide natural focused health care services. At the Mountain Health Team, we believe that your optimal health is one of the most important treasures you can gain in life.
(10)

A difference with our approach is that we focus on people not diseases. As people are unique, some people may have several contributing factors to their current condition and therefore require a unique combination of the most indicated modalities and therapies in order to return to health. We also realize that a coordinated approach to your health care may achieve the optimal benefit for you. That is why we have a team of professionals to better serve you. Additionally, you are welcome to see us in conjunction with any other health care provider, see any one of our team exclusively, or we conveniently offer referrals when indicated to coordinate your health solutions. Naturopathic medicine is a comprehensive primary health care system that distinctly addresses the root causes of illness by integrating conventional medical science with traditional natural therapies. Naturopathic doctors (ND) aim to determine the underlying causes of disease and restore optimum health by treating the whole person. As primary care doctors, ND’s threat both acute and chronic conditions by using: botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, lifestyle, counseling, physical medicine (spine and joint adjustments, massage, hydrotherapy, etc.), environmental medicine, exercise prescription, acupuncture/Asian medicine and homeopathic medicine.

Mission: Our mission is to help you feel better!

For the past 5 years we have been beyond blessed to have Dr. Porisky be part of our team. And as we are saddened that she is leaving us, we are excited for this new chapter in her life. For those of you who may not know, Dr. Porisky is getting married and moving to Northern Alberta. We have appreciated the warm, friendly, and thorough care she provided our patients and we will miss her gentle presence in the clinic.

I'm certain all our staff and patients will share the same sentiment as we wish her all the best for a bright, successful, EXCITING future!

It's summer and time to think local. We found another hidden gem in Carstairs - The Farm Table Local Market. Where else can you find A2 protein milk (which is much easier to digest for many people), Rendered Lard Premium Cooking Oil (very heat stable), local free range meats including bison, fresh fruits and rustic home decor all in one spot! Stop by and eat one of their delicious ice creams an enjoy the quaintness of a small country town. We all love traveling to BC but this is so much closer!!

Hello Everyone,

We are opening again! Thank-you so much to everyone who has waited so patiently. Our supply of required Personal Protective Equipment is low right now so we are seeing patients who are on our waitlist for specific concerns first.

We are still primarily offering phone appointments but we will be booking more in-person appointments soon and looking forward to seeing more of you even if it is behind a mask.

Hang-in there for those waiting on Massage, hopefully Stage 2 will open up soon.

Hi everyone,

Please watch Dr. Mountain's latest YouTube video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SYTy5nZJcU

Or read on...

It’s Saturday April 18th and it seems like we’ve waited forever for spring to arrive! The other thing we are still waiting for is for life to get back to normal...

For many of you, including us here at Mountain Health Team, life has likely changed a lot right now. Our philosophy has not changed though, we're still here to help you feel better!
In case you were not aware, both myself and Dr. Porisky are providing phone call appointments with current patients to ensure your healthcare remains uninterrupted. You can also continue to purchase supplements from the clinic during this time.

Our highest priority is to keep all of our patients safe and in good health. Including you.

Many of our patients are noticing that life goes on and health issues not related to COVID-19 still continue to happen. Or, pre-existing medical conditions still need care and with stress can become worse if not treated. Remember, we are here to help and take some of the stress and worry out of your day.
We will continue to closely monitor events in our local community and update our protocols as needed. And, we look forward to being able to offer in-patient appointments again. For those of you who get acupuncture, IV therapy, nebulizing treatments, adjustments, vitamin shots as well as massage offered by our massage therapists, hang in there, this won’t last forever…

We’ve been in Airdrie for nearly 10 years now and we really appreciate the trust you place in us. While the way we conduct appointments has temporarily changed, our priorities have not. We’re here to help you feel better!

That's been a long week! Hang in there everyone... We are still here for phone appointments so give us a call. Also, if you need a supplement we can do over the phone payment and arrange pick-up or drop off.

Use our Radon Detector for Free!

Recently the Government of Canada sent out this brochure encouraging people to order a 3 month radon test kit. As it mentions, Radon gas is the #1 cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Keep in mind that Radon is significantly higher in the winter months due to pressure changes in your house and snow/moisture in the ground around your house that restricts its escape.

We have used this Corentium Radon tester frequently for the last several years. The numbers shown are from our basement in February (there will be lower numbers on your main floor but I was curious to see how much higher the basement was). In my experience, 1 week of Radon testing in the winter will tell you the highest numbers your house will have over the year.

The next time you are at our Clinic for a Massage or Naturopathic appointment, you can ask us to use the Digital Radon Monitor for a week for FREE. First come first serve! If it's in use then we can put your name on a waiting list because we only have one detector.

Come check out our brand new Electric Massage table! We've wanted one for a long time, and this one is quite nice - custom made in Edmonton. It has specially designed removable inserts to make prenatal massages more comfortable and your Massage Therapist can change the height at any time for different pressures and techniques.

Here is Dr. Mountain's second YouTube video! He talks about Fasting Insulin which is a conventional test that is not routinely done. He describes how this test has significant clinical importance as a proactive and inexpensive lab test.

We finally made it to The Light Cellar! What a cool place! A shop full of super foods, complete with a small cafe full of interesting treats and a cooking kitchen where people can come to different classes. Janice really wants to try a chocolate making class! You can find them in Bowness, Calgary right near Bow Cycle. If you haven't been, it's a great destination to try in 2020!!

Well, I did it. The post below is my YouTube debut! Believe it or not, this took me way out of my comfort zone and 2 minutes and 10 seconds of edited video took me an entire day and it's still not perfect! So, I'm told that things will get better with practice. I thought that videos would be a good way to show people my answers to common health questions and confusions and you can see how a Naturopathic Doctor could answer.

It's summer and time to think local. We found another hidden gem in Carstairs - The Farm Table Local Market. Where else can you find A2 protein milk (which is much easier to digest for many people), Rendered Lard Premium Cooking Oil (very heat stable), local free range meats including bison, fresh fruits and rustic home decor all in one spot! Stop by and eat one of their delicious ice creams an enjoy the quaintness of a small country town. We all love travelling to BC but this is so much closer!!
We are taking part in a city wide scavenger hunt and one of our tasks was to post a business that is closed right now that we miss....well Mountain Health Team...I MISS YOU!!!! Cannot wait for you to reopen so I can see your lovely faces and access your much needed, loved and appreciated services!! Be well, stay healthy and safe and I will see you soon!! Emme misses you too because she has become my reluctant fill-in massage therapist! Lol ❤️to you all!! Nancy Kelln
Hello Dr Mountain and team! We have been enjoying the Harvest Haven strawberries for years, and believe me, they are the best and sweetest strawberries you'll ever taste. I thought I would share this post with you so you also get a chance to try them. They are available u-pick for $4.50/lb, or we-pick for $5.99 or $45.00 for an 8 lbs flat. While I recommend you take the trip to Lethbridge to visit this awesome organic farm, you'll get a chance to get them in Calgary on July 5th, when they do their next delivery in Calgary. The picking is easy, the berries are plentiful and clean because the fields are strawed, and you get to enjoy a peaceful time listening to the birds while picking. I'll have to warn you that the berries are highly addictive and I challenge you to resist eating them on the way home, they are so fragrant! You can order yours or make appointment to reserve your rows for picking by calling them at 403-329-9157. Here is a video of their field: https://www.facebook.com/HarvestHaven/videos/2174242742615794/. I hope you don't mind my sharing this on your page, but these berries are so good, I like to let as many people know as possible :-)
This was on my new feed today. Found it fitting of our conversation yesterday 😊.
