Our Unique Approach

Our Idaho Brain & Body Institute Roadmap is a unique approach to help women regain their energy, focus and gut health, naturally without prescriptions so they can live life fully, feeling and looking their best… especially if you’ve already seen lots of doctors.

Women often experience a wide range of hormonal symptoms (even after seeing health experts) because areas that directly impact their hormones are not addressed or often ignored.

We partner with each client to achieve these steps, starting with the Review Phase:

  • During the intake, we’ll review your past medical history and any previous lab tests, so we can assess symptoms or anything your doctor might have missed.

  • Next, we’ll determine the need for additional lab tests to help pinpoint the real reasons for your digestive drama and to understand your current hormone and stress levels.

  • After that, we’ll prioritize our treatment approach for immediate symptom relief – utilizing a variety of healing protocols, supplements. During this process, we also will adjust your treatment schedule based on sensitivity and how receptive you are to treatments.

  • The next three steps focus on restoring and optimizing gut function, starting with pathogens & stealth infections that are often at the root of gut dysbiosis.

  • Next, we focus on repairing the gut lining to reestablish intestinal integrity so we can lower inflammation and undo the damage caused by things like leaky gut.

  • The last step in the Gut Reset phase is dedicated to replenishing the microbiome to properly digest food, improve nutrient absorption as well as neurotransmitter production important for balanced mood.

  • Once we make headway with rebooting your gut health, we’ll turn our attention to rebalancing your nervous system, hormones and cellular health.

  • Specifically, we’ll strengthen parasympathetic tone to help you shift from “flight or flight” to “rest and digest” mode – while dialing down inflammatory signals and enhancing mood and focus.

  • In the hormone rebalancing step, we provide thyroid and adrenal support to restore energy and improve metabolism. We also cover blood sugar balance and address possible insulin resistance that can keep you from losing weight and feeling energized.

  • The final step of our Gut Health Roadmap focuses on detox and cellular balance – helping you reduce your body’s toxic burden, avoid toxins in the first place, and replenishing your cellular machinery for an energized life.

“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.
