Naturopathic

At Balance Health + Wellness, our naturopathic doctor, Kelly Simms, helps patients that experience gastrointestinal disorders, hormonal imbalances, and cardiovascular conditions. Her nutritional and functional approach to common health concerns allows patients to find relief and balance, naturally.

The goal of naturopathic medicine is to get to the root cause of a concern by looking past symptoms and asking why the symptom is occurring. Each person is treated as a whole and as an individual with unique health characteristics. This whole body approach to health can lead not only to symptom resolution, but an enhanced sense of well-being.

Each of her patients are asked to play an active role in their care. Your time with Dr. Simms begins with a thorough hour long consultation where she will listen to your concerns, ask questions, and begin to see the how all of the pieces fit together. From there, she will utilize objective testing methods to further define potential causes for symptoms and give initial recommendations. At subsequent follow-up visits, a plan that addresses each of your concerns will be discussed and its plan for implementation will be presented. In most cases, improvement begins after the initial visit and follow-ups are to ensure ongoing success.

Also available at Balance Health + Wellness are programs that are 6-8 weeks in length for more specific health concerns, such as weight loss. In addition to expert individualized recommendations, you will receive ongoing education about natural health and individualized attention.

Dr. Simms has nine years of post-secondary education, including residency. She has a bachelor of science in Biomedical Engineering from North Carolina State University where she graduated magna cum laude. She earned her four year doctorate in naturopathic medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Upon graduation and successful completion of national licensing examinations, she was selected for the Integrative Therapeutics STAIR Residency in Wisconsin, as one of two participants in the country. As a resident, she completed specialty rotations in naturopathic integrative medicine, gastroenterology, cardiology, and women’s medicine.
