Coroporate Wellness Programs

 

Poor employee health costs organizations across Canada billions of dollars every year. Similarly, many employees take time off work to attend to health related issues. The best way to reduce the burden caused by poor employee health is to help them manage and improve their health at work and at home. The health team at Doctors Naturae offers onsite health screening in the comfort of your office. Not only will your organization experience improved employee satisfaction, attendance, retention and productivity, your employees will appreciate your concern with their wellbeing.


WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE IF EVERYONE IN YOUR ORGANIZATION IS HAPPY AND HEALTHY?


No matter how much you have invested in equipment, inventory or technology, your employees are your greatest asset. And when your employees feel healthy and happy, your business is healthier too. Not only do employees do better work, but sick time and absenteeism are reduced, and productivity and morale are enhanced.


Doctors Naturae corporate wellness programs provide education and resources to help your employees improve their health and well‐being and reduce their risk of disease. They also provide motivation and support to employees as they adopt a healthier lifestyle. We can customize programs to specifically achieve your organization’s health and economic priorities.

HOW CAN YOUR ORGANIZATION NOT SUCCEED IF EVERYONE IS FUNCTIONING AT THEIR BEST?

  • [Negative] relationship with supervisor or manager ‐ 44%
  • Co‐worker conflict in the workplace – 28%

Preventative Healthcare Screenings and Seminars


Onsite/Workplace Healthy Heart Clinic with Cholesterol and Glucose Screening
Heart disease is the number one killer in Canada, and over 2 million Canadians have diabetes; one third of which are unaware of their condition. Additionally, hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects one in five Canadians, is the number one risk factor for a stroke and a major cause of heart disease. Together these conditions cause over one third of Canadian deaths every year. Left untreated, not only are these conditions detrimental to an individual’s health, they are likely to disrupt their performance at work.


During this clinic, a registered naturopathic doctor will provide every participant with a confidential results package with the following measurements:

  • Resting Heart Rate
  • Blood Pressure
  • Cardiovascular Risk Assessment
  • Random Blood Glucose (Finger‐Stick Test)

After the clinic, the coordinator receives a results summary with confidential information removed. This allows organizations to monitor the efficacy of their screening clinics over time and to better select future wellness initiatives. Clinics are available throughout the year; however, space is limited during Heart Month (February).


Diabetes Screening

Diabetes is a chronic condition that stems from the body's inability to sufficiently produce and/or properly use insulin which the body needs to use sugar as an energy source. Diabetes can lead to serious complications and premature death but those who have diabetes can take steps to control the disease and lower the risk of complications. During this clinic, employees can complete a risk assessment, review their diabetic risk and find out their blood glucose level. Screenings can be set up for the early morning hours on consecutive days for your convenience.


Body Composition Analysis
Bioelectrical impedance is based on the principle that fat tissue is a poorer conductor of electric current than lean muscle tissue. Using bioelectrical impedance, a person's total body fat percentage, hydration level, weight, and optimum levels are determined and provided in a printout. This method is completely safe and as easy as stepping on the bathroom scale.
