“There are many things I really love about Dr. Z, but I’ll bring up the two I most appreciate. Number one is his concern for his patients. When you visit his office and begin to work with him, you can tell that he genuinely cares and deeply desires to see you reach your health goals. You aren’t just a number to him, and if something doesn’t work for you, he will continue to dig for a solution until he finds one that does. As simple as that sounds, I just couldn’t find that anywhere else I went. Number two is his approach to your health concerns. Working in the health industry myself, I’m a big believer in not just following any new popular fad that might be out there, but basing your practice on scientific evidence. His knowledge of nutrition and how to help the body heal itself has always blown me away. And, I appreciate that he is always studying the latest research and going to conferences in order to best serve his patients. Dr. Z is a great man who has helped me in many ways and I know that he can help you too.”
“For thirty years I struggled with a condition called chronic myofascial pain. Every day I had painful trigger points and muscle pain all over my body. I went to many different medical professionals over the years and tried many types of treatment. But, nothing relieved the pain more than temporarily.This condition significantly limited my activities and my ability to enjoy life.
It was becoming progressively worse when I heard about Dr. Zimmer through a family member. Dr. Zimmer was the first to correctly identify the cause of this pain – leaky gut syndrome due to the many types of painkillers I had taken over the years. He prescribed a course of treatment that has considerably improved the condition.
I am so grateful for Dr. Zimmer’s knowledge and skill. He is a TENACIOUS researcher who has helped me with other unusual health concerns. I highly recommend him not only as a skilled clinician, but also as a very caring person who has dedicated himself to helping those who have not benefited from other forms of treatment. He is honest, fair, and willingly takes on challenging cases .”
“After suffering with Fibromyalgia symptoms and hormonal issues for 12 years, I truly believe that working with Dr. Zimmer has been the turning point in my journey towards improved health. Dr. Zimmer and I had numerous detailed discussions about my symptoms and he suggested key tests that helped us determine just what was happening in my body. After carefully analyzing the results, he made important nutritional recommendations to address those issues. There is no “cookie cutter” approach here! I finally feel that I am on the right track to give my body the proper nutritional tools to begin the healing process. There are few doctors these days that work so hard to get to the real root of the problem. He works tirelessly to do so. I don’t know where I would be today if I had not had his expertise, and just as importantly, his care and deep concern to help me. I can’t say enough about my positive experience with Dr. Zimmer. He and his helpful staff have truly been a blessing. “
“For the past 20 years I have been a classic case of 10 min consultations with doctor after doctor resulting in yet another drug more powerful than the last to treat anxiety/depression (which I now believe was an easy label for “I just don’t know what’s wrong with you lady!). The resulting side effects of traditional drugs (chronic fatigue – body ache – mental numbness, etc…) put me in search of another option. Living in a somewhat remote area of the US my options were limited. I thank God for finally being referred to Dr. Zimmer. Via the internet, Dr. Z has led me down a road to better health both physically and emotionally. It has not been a quick fix and has required lifestyle changes that didn’t come easily for me. But it has been well worth the effort. I feel better than I have in years. His knowledge, passion for his work and love for his patients were clear from the first appointment. I so appreciate that he makes himself so easily accessible to his patients. I was not just another chart or an appointment to rush through for Dr. Z and his staff – they give personal care at its very best! Thank you Dr. Z., you have given me a new lease on life and the courage to continue walking down the pathway to better overall health!”

“My family and I became very ill from mold toxin exposure. After two ER visits and seeing multiple physicians, a good friend recommended I see Dr. Zimmer. I was very skeptical of nutritionists, but I was desperate. From the first appointment I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Zimmer. Dr. Zimmer treated me for adrenal fatigue. I went from thinking I needed to be on antidepressants for life to having my health restored – drug free. Likewise, my two children were being treated by physicians for allergies with nasal steroids and antihistamines. Within one month of treatment with Dr. Zimmer, my children came off the medication with no symptoms returning. I appreciate the education I received – not only to heal, but to prevent further illnesses. Dr. Zimmer is very knowledgeable. He does not claim more than what is researched. Best of all…he has a huge heart – he really cares!”
“I was recently diagnosed with diabetes. Dr. Zimmer helped me to understand what diabetes is and how to make the right choices regarding nutrition and what supplements would be beneficial. He also helped calm my fears and assured me that I am in charge, not my disease. Dr. Z is always there when I have questions about nutrition and supplements (which is quite often). Now, about those corny jokes…they are great fun!”
“I am so thankful that I was referred to Dr. Zimmer. I am finally getting answers to the questions about my health that have bothered me for so long. After years as a regular exerciser, I began to struggle to complete my daily tasks. I was dealing with regular pain in my stomach that made me want to lie down and curl up in a ball. I sought advice from my doctor, and was told that I was depressed and offered medication. I changed to a different doctor, had a full range of tests run and was again told there was no medical reason for my fatigue and it was probably due to depression. After being referred to Dr. Zimmer for neck and back pain, I not only walked away feeling better physically, but I began to have hope that there were answers to my questions. Dr. Zimmer helped me detoxify my body, build up my immune system, and deal with the imbalances that were causing my pain.
Dr. Zimmer is a storehouse of information about health and nutrition. I have asked many questions and have always been given timely, knowledgeable explanations. What impresses me the most about Dr. Zimmer is his willingness to listen and take the time to help even when there is no financial benefit to be gained. I have come to trust “Dr. Z” because he has taken the time to explain things, treated me as a friend, and because the products he has suggested have actually improved my health. I highly recommend Dr. Zimmer to my family and friends! He has been a real blessing in my life!”
“I praise God for the nutritional advice and guidance that I have received from Dr. Zimmer. He truly has a genuine love and desire to teach his patients about health and nutrition in order to guide them to lifestyles of optimal health. Dr. Zimmer has always been available to answer the many questions I have about health and has taken the time to make sure I understand what he is talking about. Dr Zimmer’s staff is one-of-a-kind! They love every patient that walks through the door and they go above and beyond in every way. I can’t imagine what my health would be like without Dr. Zimmer in my life. He thoroughly loves his job and it shows everyday. He is real, honest and loves the Lord. I know I will be a life-long patient!”
“Five years ago my 9 year old daughter started seeing Dr. Zimmer for her scoliosis. A year later I was diagnosed with stage 3 aggressive breast cancer. I felt it was just as important to keep the healthy part of my body strong to fight the bad cells and the lethal chemo. Dr. Zimmer invested a lot of time researching my nutrition and supplement plan. He carefully explained everything, always is available to answer any questions and continues to update my protocol as he learns about new information. I have felt great and it has been four years!!! Both my daughters and I see Dr. Zimmer regularly as he is monitoring my daughter’s scoliosis. He is very passionate about what he does and his compassion is felt by the three of us!”
