Parkinson’s Disease in Meridian ID is a neurodegenerative condition. Idaho has the #1 death rate of Parkinson’s in the United States. This disease impacts the part of the brain responsible for movement. Classical symptoms are tremors, slow walking, loss of smell, constipation, and stooped posture. It is estimated that 50-80% of patients with Parkinson’s will progress into a dementia as the area impacted grows.

Managing Parkinson’s Disease

Like any neurodegenerative condition it is very difficult to manage. Research suggests many things that negatively impact those with Parkinson’s. Going after the things that negatively impacts it takes a lot of work and discipline as the process has usually been going on for decades before a tremor develops.

Currently the only medication used is to increase the amount of dopamine. While this can have some improvements with symptoms it doesn’t do anything to slow the underlying process that drives the disease. Outside of medication there is an implant that is used as well but once again it does nothing to stop or slow the underlying process that is killing that part of the brain responsible for movement.

We evaluate multiple factors that may contribute to Parkinson’s such as environmental toxins, hormones, heavy metals, chronic infection, and head injuries. Our comprehensive treatment approach is aimed at identifying the factors and treating each one. The goal is to reduce the amount of damage and to have the brain connect better. This will allow you to function at a higher level and enjoy your life more.

“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.
