Dr. Nate Blume is dedicated to empowering every individual to reach their full potential. Dr. Nate has chosen to help others live a life of wellness to ensure that he can raise his own family in a healthier environment. Through education and proper lifestyle choices, Dr. Nate knows that each individual can live the life of their dreams.
Dr. Nate was born in Huntingburg, Indiana and attended Indiana University, where his studies included a concentration in Nutrition and Exercise Science. As a student in Bloomington, Dr. Nate worked at the Student Recreational Sports Center (SRSC) as a Strength and Conditioning Consultant. It was through this experience Dr. Nate realized his desire to help people get healthy.
“While working at the SRSC, I found great enjoyment in educating individuals on how to properly improve their health through exercise and diet. I became more interested in the mechanics of the body and how it affected function on such an extremely individual basis.”
Dr. Nate’s increased interest in health and wellness led him to classes such as Personal Training, Group Exercise Leadership, and Human Nutrition. While taking these classes, Dr. Nate visited his own chiropractor, which led him to his career today.
“I realized chiropractic was my calling while visiting my chiropractor, Dr. Phil Gilbert. Dr. Gilbert explained the principles and philosophy behind chiropractic. He talked about helping people heal naturally and allowing express health without drugs or surgery.”
Dr. Nate attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. Palmer is historically considered the fountainhead of chiropractic because of its strong philosophy of innate health. Followers of this philosophy believe health comes from within, and the body’s natural state is optimum health expression, functioning well, and feeling good.
“I always knew I wanted to work with people to improve their quality of life. Palmer and chiropractic provided me with the best tool to do this – the ability to educate and to adjust.”
Dr. Nate graduated in March of 2002 from Palmer and moved back to his home state of Indiana. Wanting a cultural and spirited environment, he settled in Indianapolis and opened Lakeshore Chiropractic. His brother Dr. Cole graduated from Palmer in 2005 and immediately joined the practice.
“Most people truly want to be healthy, but so many make their health decisions based on marketing they see on television or the newest fad diet. For our practice members to have a different outcome, we knew we had to address the true cause of poor health expression.”
Dr. Nate and sons Trent and Drake, lead the same healthy lifestyle he encourages his practice members to lead. Always looking for new recipes and quality sources of organic vegetables, fruits and meats, Dr. Nate loves to prepare fun and nutritious meals for his family and shares them with his practice. Dr. Nate is an avid runner and enjoys challenging his body to express its vitality through exercise and sport.
“I’m on a mission to create a healthier community in which to raise my family. We have too many kids that know which prescription mom and dad take when they can’t sleep or feel sad. I want my boys to recognize that great results take effort whether it is in school, a career, or our health.”
