Treatment Options

Your First Step to Optimal Health

Bluett Integrative Health offers a variety of patient care options. Most of our first-timers become a regular patient which begins with the Initial Wellness visit and continues with intermittent Return Wellness visits. We typically prefer in-person visits, but for out of state patients we offer phone consultations.

If a patient simply wants to test the waters, or knows exactly what they wish to have Dr. Bluett’s advice, one of our other visit options may be appropriate. These include Acute or Condition-Specific Visits, Detoxification Consults, Weight Loss Consults, Elimination Diet Consults, Nutrition & Supplement Consults, Lab Review, Craniosacral Treatment and Naso-sympatico Treatment.

If you are a local business or school Dr. Bluett also offer free lectures on various health and wellness topics.

Fee Schedule for Office Visits and Phone Consultations:

15 minutes: $45.00
30 minutes: $90.00
45 minutes: $135.00
60 minutes: $180.00


Becoming a Regular Patient

Initial Wellness Visit

Prior to this visit you will fill out our comprehensive intake form. At the Initial Wellness visit you will bring the intake form with you, as well as any labs or pertinent medical documents. Please download the form from our website (see links in left sidebar). This form provides a template for you to outline your health concerns, and provides Dr. Bluett with a thorough medical history.

During this initial visit Dr. Bluett will review your intake and determine whether lab testing is appropriate. Dr. Bluett will also provide literature to review regarding general nutritional guidelines, and other information related to your specific health concerns. The length of this visit depends on the number of health conditions and complexity of the case.

Return Wellness Visits
At this visit Dr. Bluett typically reviews labs ordered during your Initial Wellness visit and makes pertinent lifestyle recommendations, including personalized diet, stress reduction techniques, exercise routines, detoxification suggestions and possible counseling. Your first Return Wellness visit is a follow up appointment to the Initial Wellness visit and is usually the longest because of the amount of information to review. Return Wellness visits thereafter are much shorter and focus on fine-tuning your protocol and/or addressing new concerns.

Phone Consultations
Dr. Bluett does accept patients from out of the state and the office will schedule phone appointments for these patients. Time is billed according to the office fee schedule.

Other Visit Options
We understand that our medical care is paid out-of-pocket and some patients may not be able to afford long-term patient care. With that in mind, we offer the following options:

Acute or Condition-Specific Visits
During acute or condition-specific visits our doctors focus on one health concern and ask the patient to fill out a two page intake form listing their primary health concern, current medications, supplements and known allergies. Examples include colds & flus, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, skin rashes, infertility, migraine headaches, high cholesterol and several others. 

Because Naturopathic health care focuses on whole person wellness, we highly recommend that patients go through our Initial Wellness Visit. Acute or specific-condition visits are for patients with financial concerns, or for those in need of immediate symptom management.

Detoxification Visit
During detoxification visits our doctors review your current symptoms, medications and allergies and get you started on Dr. Bluett’s Detox Protocol. The Detox Protocol helps your body eliminate toxins more efficiently by supporting the pathways of elimination including the skin, digestive system, urinary system, lungs and lymphatic system. The detox is an out-patient treatment that does not require down time nor frequent trips to the loo (bathroom). It is very tolerable and does not require extreme dietary restrictions or time off work.

Weight Loss Visit
During Weight Loss Visits our doctors determine the underlying cause of your weight gain and provide tools to get those extra pounds off for good. The visit may require labs such as thyroid and blood sugar testing. We typically start everyone off with The Weight Loss Jump Start which includes smoothies and delicious recipes.

Elimination Diet and
Identification of Food Allergies

The Bluett Integrative Health Elimination Diet is the gold standard test used to identify food allergies and sensitivities. Although there are several blood tests and skin scratch tests available, the elimination diet is the most valuable tool used to identify food allergies (immediate and delayed-reactions).

Food & Environmental Sensitivity Review

Nutritional & Supplement Consultations

At Bluett Integrative Health we emphasize the importance of nutrition during all of your visits; however, if nutritional advice is all you desire, a one-on-one Nutritional Visit is your best choice. At your Nutritional Visit, our doctors review your current diet and recommend changes to help you achieve your goals. If you already take supplements you’ll be asked to bring those to your visit where the doctors will assess dosing and quality based on your biochemical individuality. Some patients opt to come in solely for professional review of their self-prescribed supplements. Your doctor will ensure you are not under-dosing, over-dosing or unnecessarily taking supplements. Interactions among medications, supplements and foods are also discussed.

Physical Therapies

Craniosacral Therapy
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on form of body therapy that evaluates and enhances a physiological system called the craniosacral system — comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, usually no heavier than the weight of a nickel, practitioners can release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

CranioSacral Therapy has origins that can be traced all the way back to the 1800's with Andrew Still, M.D. Then in the early 1900's, Dr. William Sutherland continued the development with the fascination that the cranial bones breathe, or move. In the 1970's, Dr. John Upledger, an osteopath, continued the work and research at Michigan State and then developed the system most widely used today by a variety of practitioners. He began the Upledger Institute and started training practitioners worldwide. Currently, there are thousands and thousands who have been trained in CranioSacral Therapy. He has been featured in Time magazine as well as on CNN. He has authored many books on the subject and continues to teach CranioSacral Therapy to this day.

The craniosacral system has it's own unique rhythm. Just like the heartbeat (beating at 70-80 beats per minute) or the respiratory system (breathing at 14-18 breathes per minute), the craniosacral system has a rhythm of 6-12 cycles per minute. Much slower than the breath or heartbeat, but no less powerful.  

In fact, the craniosacral system influences most all the other systems in the body. Most people are familiar with the heartbeat and the breathing but because the craniosacral system is so subtle it's harder to feel. So it went undetected for a long time. It's always been there helping us out, but just recently we became aware of this body system.

So, what we do as practitioners of CranioSacral Therapy is we work hands-on with your body and your nervous system to help re-establish balance and optimum function. We do this by helping to relax any tension from your head (Cranio) to your tailbone area (Sacral). But really, we work with your whole body, not just the head and tailbone area, since your whole body is connected. We actually work from head to toe. And we work with the muscles, fascia, and fluids to positively affect the musculoskeletal system, as well as the nervous system.

We assist your body in releasing any sort of stress or tension so that your body can get updated and simply work better and easier.

The result is a relaxed body/mind that is able to function more efficiently, effectively and more in harmony with who we are at the deepest level. CranioSacral Therapy is extremely safe & gentle, yet powerful.”

Naso-sympatico Sinus Treatment
Naso-sympatico is an incredible way to clear and open the nasal passages. It feels odd at first, but you soon acclimate. It smells great, has potent antiseptic properties and relieves sinus pressure within 30 minutes. With 3-4 repeat visits, sinusitis can be a thing-of-the-past. 

Procedure: a long nasal swab coated with essential oils is inserted into each nostril for 15 minutes. A hot water bottle is applied to your forehead and cheeks (directly over sinuses) to encourage decongestion.
