Recovery from Pregnancy, Chronic Headaches and Stress
I have been seeing Dr. Zimmermann for 2 years now. Initially I came for recovering my energy from pregnancy, gall bladder issues, headaches, stress. I have always been helped and issues were resolved efficiently.
One particular one was a persistent headache that my teacher of Acupuncture, Kiiko Matsumoto Sensei, had linked to a dog bite at the age of 5. Dr. Zimmermann, after asking me many questions regarding my feelings, symptoms and their origin came to the same conclusion without knowing that I had already been diagnosed with a dog bite toxicity!
She prescribed Lyssinum, (a remedy made from the saliva of a rabid dog), gave me a few pellets in her office and the headache resolved completely shortly after. I was impressed with her diagnostic skill and inspired with how two different modalities came to exactly the same conclusion.
I am grateful to Dr. Zimmermann for all her expertise and support. Katrianna Heigelmann, Dr. TCM, Victoria
Help with Vitamin D
It has been 3 days since we have made one simple change for our son - the recommended 5000IU of Vitamin D - and the results are phenomenal!! We are so grateful for the significant change we are already experiencing!! His behaviour softened after the first dose and he has maintained a calm energy, more aligned with his natural state of being, ever since! We are now introducing calcium into his diet starting today. His cough is improving, and he is showing less dramatic shifts in energy with the blood/sugar highs and lows.
I have also been taking the 5000IUs of Vit D and my energy has returned!! I used to experience the 3:00pm slump in the afternoons at work, but I now have full energy all day. I feel less irritable and happier!
We are so grateful for the simple, yet significant impact our first visit has had on our family.

(Dr. Anke's Comment: Sometimes just a little adjustment can help a lot!)
Crying for Hours
My daughter is now 27. Dr. Zimmerman helped my daughter with a constitutional issues. When she was 6, she wouldn't be able to stop crying for hours, this went on from infancy, until the we had a consultation, one homeopathic dose, and all our lives changed.
Thank you Dr. Zimmermann." (D.S., Vancouver, BC)
Able to Avoid Antibiotics for Ear Infection
I feel fortunate to have you as our family doctor. I am very impressed with your dedication towards your patients. You always take the time to listen and to really get to know people. You have made my sons feel so very special. You do the little things that mean so much, like letting them see your dog, hanging them upside down, etc. You diagnosed Peter with a bad ear infection and the remedy you gave him worked overnight. Thanks to you we were able to avoid antibiotics.

Stomach Problems, Hair Loss, Eczema
I wanted to give you a quick update on how I have been doing.
My stomach problems have been almost eliminated. I have changed my diet and completely cut out dairy and minimized gluten as best I can. The probiotic is doing wonders also.
My hair started to grow back also, so I'm hoping that I can stop wearing my wig at the ened of this month.
The most amazing thing is my skin. My skin has never been so healthy and glowing and my eczema and imflammation is completely gone.
I wanted to thank you for helping me out once again.
I have known Dr. Zimmerman for 15 years and she has helped me with migraine headaches, menopause, and she also recently helped me with a clogged tear duct.
She has also helped my daughter with nosebleeds that she had experienced for basically all her life she is now 27. She had cauterization done on her nose many times and Dr. Zimmerman took time to gather information and found a cure.
I have never found a doctor like her. I can not say enough about her she is a very caring and knowledgeable doctor. Marilyn Klassen, Coquitlam
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
I have known Dr. Anke Zimmermann for approximately. 2 yrs. and she has done more to help me with my fatigue (the natural way), than any other doctor for the 51 yrs I have been challenged with this.
I am certain she will eventually help to the point I will be able to work to my full potential.
She is very supportive, caring and goes the extra mile to seek out a solution to whatever your difficulty is. I am so grateful for her help to this stage, and hope for even better results in the near future.
I would highly recommend her to anyone who has any challenge the medical industry does not understand, and even one they do understand, as she will approach it from a different angle and will get results.

I thought I should reach out to you and thank you for recommending that I take VSL#3. I have been taking it for about three weeks now and it has put my ulcerative colities in remission, something my doctor thought was only possible through hard, dangerous drugs.
Thanks so much and I hope this information will help with future patients.

(Note: I only saw this patient once, this particular probiotic worked so well for him.)
Thank You for Presentation
Thank you very much for the wonderful "Lunch and Learn" presentation you gave to our employees in September. You have received many rave reviews here at Magna!
Our employees were very interested in learning about Naturopathic Medicine and found you to be a very talented and dynamic speaker!
As discussed, we hope that you will have the time to come back and present again in the future. I will keep you up to date on possible topics and tentative dates.
Cynthia Mitchell, Peak Performance Co-ordinator, Magna International, Aurora, Ontario
Dr. Zimmerman was amazing! I had no idea homeopathic remedies could be so powerful and precise! I am grateful for Anke's intuitive ability to diagnose symptoms and prescribe remedies.
The remedies worked for me immediately, and produced profound effects. I have a new love in my life thanks to Dr. Z - homeopathic medicine!
Mariah Hunter, Victoria, BC
Thank You for Presentation
Thank you for a wonderful presentation to the nurses at our Footcare Conference last Saturday. Many of the nurses indicated on the conference evaluation form that they were glad to have information that gave them a different approach to a condition that we so often battle with.
We all loved your sense of humour too!

Help with Anxiety
I am happy for your about your upcoming move to BC and hope that all your dreams will be fulfilled. You are a wonderful practitioner who will be missed, but at this moment my anxiety has vanished, I am free of medication and more than ready to tackle life's ups and downs on my own.
I feel like saying: Thanks for being there for me in the past, but now I am well, I don't need you, you are free to go. Thanks for sticking around and being part of my recovery. I will always think fondly of you.

Getting better without Antibiotics
Thank you so very much for helping me this week. I don't know what I'd do without you! You have been absolutely wonderful! I'm getting better without the antibiotics.

Help with Infertility
I truly believe that your patience and expertise are responsible for the miracle of my pregnancy and the birth of a healthy baby boy! Thank you form the heart. You helped me to fulfill a lifetime dream.

(I treated this patient for severe endometriosis causing very painful periods. She had been married for ten years and had been infertile. Her and her husband adopted a child five years into the marriage. Her painful periods improved and then, for her 40th birthday, to everyone's surprise, she found out she was expecting!)
Inspiration to become a Naturopath
Dear Dr. Zimmermann,
Just a quick note to thank you for all you've done for me. I have attained a much different perspective on life and the world in general. I feel in my heart that I was and am meant to pursue a career in Naturopathy. Your success with me motivated me greatly.
Thank you sincerely, M.H., Bradford, Ontario
(This patient went on to become a naturopathic doctor and is now one of my dear colleagues.)
Help with business, family
Thank you for your kind spirit, generous nature and compassionate heart. It has been a blessing getting to know you over the last ten years!
You have been such a wonderful friend, helping me launch my business, treating my family at all hours of the night and just having happy conversations walking to school. You will be missed by many, including this family.
Keep in touch and much happiness,
A.D., Newmarket, ON, 2005
Help with Lupus, Inspiration to become a Homeopath
The other reason I am writing is to thank you for being such an important part of my life journey. I had a dream about you the other night and we had an interesting conversation about homeopathy. When I awoke I was filled with gratitude towards you and all you have truly done for me.
You were the first person I saw in my healing journey who opened my eyes to treating my Lupus a different way. I feel that one day my Lupus will be a thing of the past, that I will truly outgrow this illness. I have come so far from that first appointment with you, an appointment that truly changed my life.
Your amazing work inspired me (and continues to!) to become a competent, compassionate healer. I respect all that you do as a naturopath (who is amazing at homeopathy!) so very much and feel very blessed that I crossed your path at the time I did.
Now, as a homeopath, I realize how much thought and effort you put into my case and I appreciate that more than you know.
Lastly, I heard through the grapevine that you are moving out West. I want to wish you all of the best in your home and may the new location be filled with abundance and blessings of joy and peace.
Much love and gratitude,
A.F., Newmarket, ON, 2006
(This former patient went on to become an excellent homeopathic doctor.)
When I received your letter about moving to BC my first reaction was "Oh no! What am I gong to do without my trusted counsellor!" My second reaction was "Great, excellent, what an exciting step forward for Anke and her daughter."
I want to thank you for all the years during which you have guided my health in positive directions. I much appreciated the time and genuine interest you always have taken during my visits to your office.
I will miss you but wish for you fulfillment, happiness, success and bliss in your new life.
I.M., Newmarket, ON
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Dr. Anke Zimmerman. We have been seeing her (for my son) sensory disorder since the fall of 2017 and are having progressive results. Her understanding of Homeopathy is exceptional, and she goes above and beyond to help me understand the logic behind the symptoms and the relevence to the remedy. If I have a question, she answers it directly and efficiently. For anyone who does not understand what a Naturapath Doctor or what Homeopthy is, educate your self before you go. We have found the right fit for are family.
Karen McNeill, Victoria, BC
Dr. Anke Zimmermann has helped me greatly. On top of that - she is a kind and caring Doctor. She has given me homeopathic remedies that have all worked quickly and efficiently! I have experienced NO pain after 'female' surgery - help and healing from PTSD - staving off onsets of cold and flu within one day.... because of her expertise to advise which homeopathic treatment would be best for me. She takes her time to listen and and puts one at ease almost immediately. I have been seeing her for a few years now.... I have never been disappointed! And beyond that - I would say she's intuitive - and gets to the bottom of the problem quickly! I have recommended her to my friends and family. She's great!!!
Jo-Ann Hopkins, Victoria, BC
My experience with Dr.Anke Zimmerann was amazing! I was in cancer treatment (radiation/chemo) with stage 3 bowel cancer and needed the integral medicine of that which she practices. She was gently pleasant, confident, professional and quite thorough. I felt her care was also compassionate and it was certainly healing to me, body and spirit. Not to mention an interesting means of experiencing the healing powers of holistic medicine!
My confidence in my body's ability to heal was greatly inspired by what Anke taught me with muscle testing and homeopathy, nutrition, ect. After a number of treatment sessions with Dr.Zimmermann, I was well on the mend! ( I am now cancer free )
I am grateful to know that Dr.Anke Zimmerman's talents are being used in a good way. If I had young children I would certainly trust her with caring for their naturopathic needs!
I trust it's ok to cross post this review on ' Rate MD's' which I have done. Dr. Anke Zimmerman deserves positive feedback!
