Team Simple

Although Simple Organics opened in November 2010, the original store, Simple-Nature’s Alternative located in Fenton, Michigan, was created in 2004. The Farwell’s created Simple because of the lack of natural products and resources that were available to them while trying to raise their pre-mature son Luke who was born with food and environmental allergies. They wanted to carry the best, most natural products available. After selling the original store in 2007, The Farwell’s, along with partners John and Donna LoVasco, continued the journey again in Oxford, Michigan.

Owner – Dr. Troy Farwell, D.N.M. MS, MH, RAP, RAH, HHP

Dr. Farwell is a Doctor of Natural Medicine, Master Herbalist, and Registered Ayurvedic Practitioner. Dr. Farwell has been in private practice for over a decade and has seen thousands of clients with weight loss and management needs. He is the owner of Simple Organics, a health and wellness store in Oxford, Michigan and is also the director and founder of OM Wellness Institute, a virtual school that specializes in training future wellness practitioners.
Additionally, Dr. Farwell has spent the last several years putting together a weight loss program that focuses on the individual and strives to bring that person to a state of health and balance. Dr. Farwell believes these two key ingredients are the missing ingredients to the majority of weight loss programs available today. According to Dr. Farwell, “When the body is no longer in crisis mode and gets back into balance, the body will be open to sustained weight loss. Most diets focus on the program theory not the individual and not getting them to a place where they can and will lose weight naturally.”
