My name is Victor Pidkowich. I’m the CEO of Neurvana™ Naturopathic Medicine.
We may not have spoken before…
Or had the opportunity to meet…
But I have been with you since the day you chose to join the ranks of individuals committed to improving their health.
Like you, I’ve also had to struggle with chronic health problems.
And I too know what it’s like to…
- look at other people’s lives and think to yourself “just how much am I missing out on”
- feel the crippling loneliness of no one being able to relate to what you are going through
- feel like your letting down family and co-workers because of the medical limitations you are facing
- feel more stressed and overwhelmed after turning to Dr. Google for answers
- and to dawn the “everything’s all-right mask” just to make it through each day
If it wasn’t for alternative, integrative medicine, I may not be here today.
Perhaps you can say the same.
When I experienced the power of alternative medicine to fundamentally change my life I knew more people needed access to it.
That’s why I made it my mission to serve people just like you in the pursuit to reclaim the zest in life.
One of the biggest challenges delivering on this mission has been limitations in space.
As you know, Neurvana™ operates from a small room rental style building, which works, but it prevents us from delivering the quality of care you deserve.
That’s why I’m excited to share with you today something that has been in the making for over 2 years.
…No, we aren’t getting a gluten free taco stand…
I’m excited to announce that Neurvana™ Naturopathic Medicine will be relocating to a BRAND NEW CLINIC in the vibrant neighbourhood of Mission!
How the new clinic will take your care to the next level
We’ve built a space that is inviting, clean and safe for our staff and patients.
Clean air and airwaves
After looking at several dozen properties for 2 years we chose the Mission Hopewell Building not because it’s in a great neighbourhood with the best taco restaurant steps away, but because of mold and EMFs. (We won’t need a taco stand after all!)
We believe it’s important to walk the talk and so we painstakingly tested every property for mold and EMFs with the help of Nelson Gourlay at Entangled Wellness, and Mitch Marchand at EMF Aware.
I am proud to say that this location passed some of the strictest standards. You can relax into the new environment knowing it has been designed to help you heal from the atom up.
Clean, nurturing light
Being a client of Neurvana™ you already know the importance of light quality, especially when it comes to LED and LCD light (I hope you’re reading this with your cool yellow glasses!).
That’s why we have chosen to put in place standard incandescent bulbs throughout the clinic when and where possible.
The new location will also include a dedicated lab for focusd blood work as well as see the introduction of IV therapy.
If you aren’t familiar with IV Therapy, it is an extremely powerful way to accelerate your healing due to the 100% bioavailability of vitamins and nutrients in highly concentrated forms.
Peace and quiet
For those that are concerned about privacy, or just hate outside noise while in an appointment, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve installed sound rated insulation between all walls and placed sound suppression devices in the ceiling. (It’s the same stuff that spy agencies use! …I think.)
Either way, it’ll drastically reduce noise between rooms so we can concentrate on what’s important — your health and well being.
How this will affect your care
Starting February 1st all of your appointments will be at
Suite 330 2020 4th Street, SW Calgary.
(Save that address, it’s important!)
If you go to our Brentwood location and it is after the 30th (our last day of appointments in Brentwood) you’ll likely miss your appointment… unless you have a teleporter — that would be cool.
To simplify things I drew this awesome map for you!
Check it out.
The move will not affect any upcoming appointments you have scheduled.
All you need to do is arrive at Suite 330 2020 4th St. SW for your appointments starting February 1st.
What’s the deal with parking?
Parking is a little different than what we have at The Village. There is underground parking available in our new building with access on the East side.
Yay! No more having to clean snow off your car!
Just pull up to the garage door on the East of the building, grab a ticket and find a spot. When you go to leave, our friendly Patient Care Coordinators will provide you with a special pass that will allow you to drive out without having to pay.
On the rare occasion that this oversized parking is full, there is metered parking on the street and other parking lots nearby.
We will have serval new professionals joining the Neurvana team as we transition into our new space.
First I’d like to introduce you to Abigail Wiedrick, our new Clinic Manager.
She’s here to ensure that you are getting the best experience possible anytime you visit our clinic. Abigail is a wonderful person, and she’s excited to get to know you!
