Dr. Lisa Keen: Empowering Canadians to Prioritize Heart Health

Dr. Lisa Keen: Empowering Canadians to Prioritize Heart Health

Heart disease is a prevalent health issue in Canada, affecting millions of adults and ranking as the second leading cause of death in the country, according to Health Canada statistics. February has been designated as Heart Month to raise awareness about the importance of cardiovascular health and help Canadians reduce their risk of developing heart disease.

To mark this important month, Dr. Lisa Keen, a licensed naturopathic doctor working at the Wayfound Mental Health Group based in Calgary, has offered her clients heart health consultations throughout February. The aim of these consults is to educate individuals about their cardiovascular health and shed light on its impact on overall well-being.

Using advanced technology such as the InBody 570 Body Composition Analyzer, clients receive a printed InBody Result Sheet with a detailed breakdown of their body composition. This includes objective metrics such as Skeletal Muscle Mass, Percent Body Fat, Body Fat Mass, Basal Metabolic Rate, Visceral Fat level, and Body Water. By analyzing these numbers, individuals can better understand their physical makeup and how it relates to heart health.

“Monitoring visceral fat levels is crucial in our efforts to prevent and identify potential risk factors for serious health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke,” explains Dr. Lisa. “By tracking visceral fat with technology like the InBody 570, we can take proactive measures to reduce the risk of these health complications.”

In addition to assessing body composition, Dr. Lisa also measures key cardiovascular indicators like blood pressure, heart rate, pulse oxygenation, and heart rate variability. These measurements provide insights into the efficiency of the heart and circulatory system, helping clients to identify any potential issues early on.

Dr. Lisa believes these heart health consultations offer a comprehensive view of an individual’s overall health. By focusing beyond the number on a scale, individuals can better understand their heart health and take proactive steps towards prevention and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Lisa empowers her clients to take charge of their cardiovascular health by raising awareness and offering personalized heart health consultations. As Heart Month comes to a close, it is essential to remember that heart health should be a year-round priority. With the proper knowledge, support, and lifestyle changes, Canadians can work towards reducing their risk and living a heart-healthy life.
