Please note, due to COVID-19 as per the Government of Alberta’s announcement: Regulated health professionals will continue to provide urgent, critical and emergency care to patients.

The Government of Alberta is trying to limit non-essential close interactions in the community in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, while at the same time keeping people out of emergency departments for services that regulated health professionals can provide in the community. 

If you are a patient that requires urgent, critical or emergency care please call (403.980.2140), email ( or Facebook messenger our clinic for an appointment. 

We are here to support you and help you through these challenging times.

The Thrive team has had quite the day yesterday (August 8, 2018).

After seeing a dark spot develop in her vision in the afternoon, Maggie went to check in with her optometrist. The optometrist quickly diagnosed her with a detached retina. Dr. Kate and Maggie headed out to Calgary to Rockyview Hospital where they met an eye specialist, did more testing and she headed into surgery at 12:00 a.m. midnight. By 3:00 a.m. Maggie came to - the surgery was successful. Her recovery will be about 3 weeks.

We know you all love Maggie and will be thinking of her! She’s looking for podcast, audiobook and Netflix recommendations. :) We will be providing updates to our Thrive community via our Facebook page. <3

We’ve been getting a lot of questions recently about people trying to clean up their diet - staying away from prepackaged (or fast) food. So we thought we would share some of our favourite recipes with all of you throughout the next couple of weeks.

For this week we’ve got a tasty caesar salad for you. A really easy and fast way to prep for the week is to make a big salad and just add the dressing the day of. Most people do this but then add a commercial salad dressing which is full of preservatives, fillers and lots of sugar which increases inflammation in your body and gut and reduces the overall healthiness of the salad.

Always be sure to add nuts and seeds to your salad, not only is this a tasty addition but it’s also a great source of nutrients for your brain and body. This salad can be modified for vegetarians or you can add bacon or chicken for some extra protein.

Hi everyone. A few weekends ago I attended a conference that explored the relationship between the gut-brain axis. What does that mean? It means whatever is happening in our bowels directly impacts our brain. Take a minute and think about the magnitude of this connection.

Lets think of someone who suffers from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Celiac, Crohn's or anyone that has a sensitivity or allergy to a food. Each time they eat something that their body doesn't tolerate, there is an immediate histamine response, which causes an influx of inflammation in their bowels. We consider this a local-level inflammatory response. We all know that the body is very inter-connected and so this local inflammation soon becomes systemic, which directly targets your brain.

You may think, "well I don’t struggle with any of those conditions", but have you ever experienced bad gas, bloating, general muscle aches or a headache after a meal? What about feeling fatigued, foggy or slower c...

We are sad to announce that January will be Chelsie Cameron’s last month with us. She has been an incredible office manager and one of the friendly faces that greets you each time you come to Thrive. She has endless energy, a big heart and adds so much value to our Thrive community. Chelsie was offered an exciting position, heading back to her roots, working with animals, but has promised that she will be back to visit frequently. We are grateful that we were part of her journey (even for this short time) and wish her the best of luck in this next endeavour.
