Cognitive Testimonials

I discovered that I was losing a lot of my short-term memory and I couldn’t remember people’s names or where I was going. I felt confused a lot. It was overwhelming sometimes….(Dr. Redd) gave me an opening to talk to him about what was going on with me. He seemed to understand what my problems were, and he was able to delineate them so that I could deal with them easier….I started being able to use my memory better, I was able to read books again and remember what I was reading….I have lost weight, I’m able to sleep longer, and I just feel overall that I’m a better person now. I know where I’m going, I’m driving again.

I think it was about 3 months ago when I started, but right now I am, by a factor of 50, better off than I was before I started this healing process. In order to appreciate what’s happened to me, you’d have to be in my shoes and recognize how there was a time when all I had to look forward to was being unable to speak. It’s difficult to describe how you feel when you start losing your capability of speaking and interacting with people. It’s a devastating thing….When we first sat down in Dr. Redd’s office, it was primarily a conversation between Dr. Redd and my wife because I had no idea what in the world was going on. I knew what they were talking about, but I couldn’t put it all into sequence. So, the two of them together built a staging spot for me to begin to improve. Over time I was able to develop the words that led to the improvement. Every meeting is bringing me closer to the man that I used to be.

I have known for several years that there was a likelihood that I carry a genetic probability for Alzheimer’s….I discovered Dr. Redd almost by accident and having met with him and talked with him, I was convinced that he had, by far, the best approach to dealing with a preventive maintenance program like I was searching for. I have been involved in his prescriptive lifestyle program now for around 8 months, and I am very pleased with the program. I have noticed a definite increase in my memory function. I have certainly, and most importantly perhaps, lost significant weight. I’ve probably lost 25-30 lbs, which takes me back to where I was 30 years ago. I feel healthier, both in mind and body. I think the lifestyle approach that he utilizes is extremely effective….You should ask any questions you have because you will certainly get answers from Dr. Redd.

I realized that I was not remembering names more than usual, and I was not remembering, at times, books that I read – what it was about the next day. That gave me some hint that there must be something not quite right with my memory. The frustration was constantly trying to make lists of things to do daily, even though I don’t work. More than frustration it was fear of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Dr. Redd’s services were totally new to me. I had never heard of the depth of testing and treatment, from prior tests where I was just given ten words to remember…but I realized that that test wasn’t adequate. There was something more I needed to do. Within the first few weeks it wasn’t perfect, but I realized there was a lot of change in my general well-being. I had more energy, and as I was following the diet quite rigidly, as much as possible, the weight loss was so exciting. Of course, that helped me to feel lighter, and also that this was a beginning of a new hope. I could sense that, and Dr. Redd was very encouraging to see the good things happening and not to look back. I feel I am not going to age with my memory just failing constantly. I feel I am going to age much more gracefully, and with much more to do, as much as time would allow, to do more with my life and to be more.

Thyroid Testimonials

When I found out I had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, I immediately started eating autoimmune paleo, and I wasn’t getting any better…My regular doctor sent me to an arthritis center here and they found out I had 2 more forms of arthritis besides the 2 that I already knew I had. Their solution was to give me basically what I call Rat Poison because it was chemotherapy that was for arthritis…I have a niece who took chemo for arthritis and she’s now pushing up daisies and she wasn’t even 30 years old. It just felt like everywhere I went they wanted to just treat bits and pieces, nobody wanted to treat the whole body and make me feel like I was a whole person, and everything they wanted to give me I knew was bad for me. (Dr. Redd) treats your whole body. Your brain, your heart, your soul, all your functions. It’s like, there isn’t another doctor out there that acts like he cares. When you meet with Dr. Redd he actually cares….I’ve been to doctors who were in and out of the room so fast that you didn’t even get to ask them a question and they didn’t know what was going on at all. I’m really starting to believe I’m going to get to grow old. I have a cousin who’s a month younger than me, (tears up) and she has full-blown Alzheimer’s. She doesn’t know who I am anymore, and we were really close growing up. She can’t feed herself, she can’t dress herself, and my other cousin had to explain to her why she needs to use the toilet the other day, and I was headed there. I was already in stage 2, and to be getting back all my brain functions, it’s the best thing ever….I’m more like what I used to be.

– Tami, 60

Before starting Dr. Redd’s program, I was experiencing multiple health problems and symptoms that had accumulated over years….The frustration of trying to find health solutions through conventional medicine or on my own is hard to express, and I can get very emotional describing it. One example summarizes my typical experience. After explaining my concerns to one doctor, she reached for her prescription pad. I stopped her and said, “I will not fill those.” She looked at me and replied, “But I want you to feel good.” When I told her, “I don’t want to feel good – I want to be well” she had no answer for me. I was feeling pretty discouraged until someone told me about Dr. Phillip Redd, a functional medicine doctor….The first time I met with Dr. Redd, even before entering his program, I knew he was different. He listened and asked questions about underlying issues that I didn’t even know might be related. He spent time with me and he didn’t reach for a prescription pad. And yet I felt better immediately just knowing I wasn’t alone and that there was a program with proven results that could be customized to my problems and adjusted based on my progress….I was amazed at how quickly I saw and felt results….The level of wellness I am achieving is beyond what I could have hoped for.

Misc. Testimonials

My kids and I were in a car accident and my daughter and I were being treated but our bodies were essentially rejecting the treatment and we were getting worse due to concussions we had no idea we had. I was previously under the impression that I had to lose consciousness to suffer a concussion. Wow were my eyes opened by Dr. Z. I was suffering from daily migraines, depression, 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. I was very surprised to see his office space. He uses every inch of it for treatments so he can cut costs and pass the savings onto the patient. He was extremely patient and caring towards my 12 year old daughter which I totally appreciated. He’s an amazing and very caring provider and I highly recommend him. I would drive home after treatments and burst into tears at how amazing I felt. After ONLY A FEW TREATMENTS! It’s fast, our brains heal incredibly fast. It’s crazy. I am now seeing him for my gut health and mental disorders and seeing totally improvement. He is one of a kind and he will change your life. Go see him.

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. Spend some time with him in a free, initial consultation…and you will be amazed with his knowledge of the human body, his ability to explain complex systems, and how to apply that knowledge in helping you feel better. Dr. Spencer Zimmerman likes to use accurate and precise measurements, labs and other diagnostic testing to track exactly what is going on in your body…no guessing…whether that’s blood sugar problems, low-energy/chronic fatigue, weight issues, sports medicine, pain/inflammation control, or low-grade chronic/persistent infections. Understanding the exact tests needed to identify problematic markers, and then addressing and tracking those markers for progress…is his specialty. As I mentioned before…Dr. Z is very detail-oriented. He also has an extensive background in neurological function, including migraines, seizures, concussions, brain injuries and general cognitive impairment…which is where he was able to help our family. Above all else, Dr. Spencer Zimmerman cares. And it shows in the intensity of his desire and drive to help you finally feel better.

After suffering a traumatic brain injury in a car accident, I went to a neurologist, physical therapy, speech therapy, a sports injury doctor, and a general practitioner. None of them were able to provide relief, and a couple of them made things significantly worse. I had given up hope of recovery when a friend referred me to Dr. Spencer Zimmerman. Within two weeks of treatment, my dizziness was gone, my nausea was much improved, and I finally had a sense that I could at last heal from what had completely derailed my life. Later, my teenage daughter contracted mono. This really took down her immune system and led to a rash of other illnesses. Dr. Spencer Zimmerman was the first doctor to identify why she was continuing to feel poorly (pediatricians and general practitioners alike completely missed her walking pneumonia and dismissed my concern that she had contract influenza, which she had – both type A and B!), and the first that was able to help with her vertigo and begin rebuilding her immune system aggressively. Within three appointments her energy began to rebound and the hope that she would at last recovery was such a relief! Fabulous bedside manner, and one of the few doctors I have met that actually takes time to listen rather than behave with dismissive arrogance. I am so glad we found 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. So an appointment and whatever treatment they were going to put me on was going to be well over $1,000. Just for that one appointment. 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. He helped me to come up with a realistic nutrition plan and put me on a rigorous supplement plan. He also stressed the importance of lifestyle – getting ample sleep, low impact exercise (I tend to try and push too hard in this aspect and he helped to teach me why this is actually a disservice to my recovery), water consumption, etc. and most importantly, he was with me every step of the way. We had regular appointments set up for him to be able to check on me and monitor progress. And I always felt like I could reach out if I had any concerns. I started feeling better than I have in a long time within a few months of working with him. My recovery journey isn’t over, but I will be forever grateful to Dr. Spencer Zimmerman and his diligent care on my behalf and the amazing improvements I have experienced thus far, thanks to him.
