Elimination Diet! What’s That?

Could food be causing your illness?

Many individuals struggle with unexplained health issues, such as rashes, irritable bowel syndrome, and autoimmune diseases, that often go undiagnosed despite initial medical tests.

Dr. Simmons explains how and why an elimination diet works.

Eliminating inflammatory foods from our diet for several weeks and slowly reintroducing them back can help us identify foods that we should permanently remove from our diet in order to help us be at our optimal health.

You Have The Power To Transform Your Life!

The power rests in your hands!

Integrative and functional medicine are rapidly gaining popularity and for good reason. These practices empower patients to take control of their own health and well-being through incremental changes in their lifestyle. Unlike traditional medicine, where the power to heal is in the hands of pharmaceutical companies, integrative and functional medicine focus on optimizing the patient’s health through natural methods.

Dr. Travis discusses how using a functional and integrative medicine approach with your doctor, you have the power to transform your life through incremental changes.

YOU MATTER…Just The Way You Are!

A message everyone needs to hear.

You matter. The person you are right now, sitting here reading this post, matters. You don’t have to be some perfect version of yourself to be worthy of love, connection, and support. You deserve all of those things just as you are.

Dr. Travis Simmons explains the importance of patients hearing the words YOU MATTER from their doctor and making them feel that way through their actions.

Does Your Physician Spend Quality Time With You?

Have you ever felt like your doctor didn’t have time for you?

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a different approach to healthcare that allows doctors to spend more time with patients. In traditional healthcare settings, doctors often feel rushed and patients may feel like their doctor doesn’t have time for them.

Dr. Travis Simmons discusses his frustration not only of being a physician who was forced to spend little time with his patients but also as a patient where his own doctor was not able to spend quality time addressing his care. Dr. Simmons explains why direct primary care is different and embraces the idea of genuine care with meaningful doctor/patient relationships.
