Ok, it’s a little
that’s how strongly we feel about what we do.
We’re a passionate crew of wellness experts who looked around at conventional, one-size-fits-all solutions and had three words to say:
We’ve seen better.
And we mean that literally. Because every day we have the privilege of helping better become a reality - better solutions, better health, better lives.
Welcome to Vital Origins. Around here, we believe that healthcare is at its, well, healthiest, when it takes a whole body, innovative, upleveled approach. Our multidisciplinary integrative practice led by Dr. Kelly Simms - a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine - provides novel, natural solutions that heal the root of complex and chronic health concerns ... and we do so with you not at you.
in fact, it can start to feel like second nature.
With that in mind, we offer a wide array of ways to improve your health and make transformative changes in your life. We create customized nutrition-based solutions (In case an apple a day isn’t cutting it.) from IR Sauna to group classes to nutrition to naturopathic medicine and more. Consider this your opportunity to take your health in your own hands.
They say that you should pursue the things that keep you up at night; the ideas you can’t shake out of your head. For founder Dr. Simms, this looked like a wellness center that would bring together expert providers and education in the bridges between the “alternative” and conventional communities and educate people about their bodies and choices. An inspiring center allergic to one size fits all approaches and band-aid solutions. An intimate, boutique, healthcare experience where everyone knows your name.
So she stopped dreaming about it and did it.
Dr. Simms has been in practice since 2010. Born and raised in Alaska, she always intended to follow in the steps of her grandfather, a urologist, and pursue medicine. However, while applying for conventional medical school, she became fascinated with the marriage of nutrition + medicine, leading her to naturopathic medicine. She studied at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) in Arizona for four years and then completed a residency in Wisconsin before moving to Chicago where she is considered one of the top NDs in the region. Her credentials include: Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Certified Nutrition Specialist, BS Biomedical Engineering. Her favorite thing about her work? Being inspired by her patients and their stories.
