Nutritional Therapy removes the blocking factors to healing, and boosts your body’s ability to intake the raw materials it needs. These raw materials can be minerals, enzymes, vitamins, hormones, amino acids, fatty acids, botanicals (adaptogens and herbs) or others. It’s not only a matter of what you’re taking in, it’s a matter of what you’re absorbing.
Bluestem’s unique clinical approach involves the use and interpretation of comprehensive health panels that get to the root of what is happening in your body that’s causing your symptoms. Specialized testing uncovers your body’s highest healing needs, giving us an in-depth look into your gut, your blood markers, your glands and hormones, tying it all together to build a customized protocol and diet to achieve true healing! This doesn’t happen anywhere else in the medical field today.
Nutritional Therapy works by assessing the body’s nutritional deficiencies using scientifically validated testing. We address the weaknesses discovered, through a properly prepared, whole food diet, supplementation, and lifestyle changes.
Isn’t it time to uncover the underlying causes of your symptoms?
Everyone’s body is different.
This is why the ‘cure-all’ approaches offered by most wellness coaches don’t work for everyone. While two individuals may present with very similar symptoms the root causes may be completely different and require a more informed strategy.
Here’s a quick overview of our comprehensive tests and what they address…
