Peptides and nutritional therapies in Meridian ID are an important part of many treatment programs. When you think of nutritional therapies you likely think of the food you consume as well as a customized supplement plan, which you would be correct.

Peptides

What are peptides? Peptides are naturally produced in our body and there are thousands of them. For the past few decades peptides have been researched and used extensively. They are used much more commonly outside of the US in Europe, Russia, and Australia. These have very profound effects on the body and can help accomplish things that other therapies cannot do.

One of the most commonly used medications in the US is actually a peptide. Insulin is this medication. Another peptide that has entered pharmaceutical circles are GLP-1 agonists such as Liraglutide, Victoza, and Trulicity to name a few.

We have seen peptides have a tremendous impact on helping individuals achieve their health goals. There are many other providers who see it on a daily basis as well. Peptides are more of an emerging science that is rapidly growing due to the benefits and minimal risk of side effects.

Dr. Zimmerman NP-C, DC has completed the A4M Peptide Certification course and is Peptide Certified. Extensive time has been spent learning how these work as well how to use them to reach health goals.

Nutritional Therapies

Nutritional therapies focus upon giving our bodies the supplies they need to do their job right. The goal of a medication is to act on a receptor and either stimulate or inhibit a pathway. These can also impact neurotransmitters, hormones, and the immune system.

One of the most common myths is that we can eat the right way and get all the nutrients we need. While this used to be true our food quality is poor now. Our foods are nutrient depleted compared to what they used to be. This is due to farming practices.

Outside of nutrients not being as abundant when you try to address a chronic disease, illness, or injury it isn’t as easy to get out of it. It takes an aggressive approach and you cannot eat enough to get the right amount of specific vitamins and minerals to do the job right.

“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.
