Alzheimer’s accounts for 60% to 80% of dementia cases. Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia characterized by progressive memory loss over time; it starts slow and grows more aggressive as time goes on. This disease can become severe enough to where daily functioning and physical capabilities are impaired. Alzheimer’s is not due to aging, in fact, about 200,000 Americans have early-onset Alzheimer’s before they reach 65 years old. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. With research still developing and becoming more advanced, it is clear there is not one form of treatment. One of the main focuses for Alzheimer’s in Meridian ID is the health of your brain and behavior.


Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s yet, there are treatments that can temporarily slow memory degradation and improve the quality of life for those diagnosed with it and their caregivers. Becoming aware of the early signs of Alzheimer’s will ensure that you and your loved one are ready to seek treatment as soon as possible.

Idaho Brain and Body Institute will provide you with treatment plans and comprehensive lab work so you receive the proper support and counseling. Our treatment plans incorporate diet, lifestyle, brain-based therapies, and nutritional counseling. These can be completed in office and at home for your convenience.

To assess the different parts of the brain we use balance, neurocognitive, and eye movement tests. We then create a treatment plan after performing these comprehensive neurological evaluations to find and address dysfunctional areas.

We provide not only a treatment plan, but also lab work so we can evaluate any nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, chronic viral infections, and any undiagnosed autoimmune illnesses.

“I have known Dr. Spencer Zimmerman (Dr. Z) for over a decade and watched him fine-tune his incredibly detailed approach to overcoming disease and illness. He is not your average physician. In addition to continuing education seminars and conferences, he spends 100’s of hours annually…personally studying and researching the latest cutting-edge, in-depth medical science. He’s a seeker of truth and viable, usable, effective healing solutions. His approach to immunology and rapidly boosting the body’s innate ability to mobilize and defend itself…is novel and highly comprehensive.

Wow were my eyes opened by Dr. Z. I was suffering from daily migraines, neck, back, shoulder, hip pain, vision and hearing problems, and the list goes on. Dr. Z saved my life. No joke. He is super meticulous and very passionate about his work. He is very smart and forward thinking and researches all the time. He genuinely cares about his patients. He’s an amazing and very caring provider and I highly recommend him.

“Dr. Spencer Zimmerman is phenomenal! In January I found out I have Lyme disease and along with that discovery, I found out that most traditional Doctors won’t/can’t help treat Lyme disease patients due to FDA restrictions. My only option appeared to be a Lyme specialist, which was going to cost enormous amounts of money because insurance doesn’t cover Lyme specialists. I felt hopeless. And that’s when I had the amazing fortune to come across Dr. Spencer Zimmerman. He gave me the hope I so desperately needed. He is very knowledgeable in regards to traditional medicine, but also homeopathic care as well.
