Dr. Jeffrey B. Baker, MD
Chief Medical Officer
I am the owner and founder of The Healing Sanctuary. I have dreamed of doing this for over 10 years and now making a big investment to make it happen.

I help patients with all their health care needs and questions with a more balanced and holistic mind set looking to find the source of the issues instead of just treating the symptoms. I am a continual learner and never seem to quit in helping patients in new and better ways for their health

I am a BYU grad and U of U medical school grad with MD and board certified in OB/GYN as well as integrative medicine and functional medicine. I also use some ayurvedic medicine as well

I love to garden and take care of my yard. I love to travel with my wife and see new places. I love learning and attending new educational conference to make me a better resource for patient healing

I have five children and twelve grandkids. All my children are married but the youngest. My brothers and sister all live in Idaho Falls where I was raised and I am the son of he late Drostan Baker, MD, who worked in Idaho Falls from 1957 till his death from a brain tumor in 1994.

Thanks for trusting us with your health!

Jordan Hale, PA-C
Physician Assistant
I am a Physician Assistant - as a PA, I prefer to be called Jordan as I think of my father as Mr. Hale! Here at the Healing Sanctuary I practice family medicine, men’s health, integrative and functional medicine, pediatrics, and women’s health. I absolutely love integrative/functional medicine and helping patients treat their concerns and problems by treating the underlying cause. I love that I am able to take ample time with my patients here to truly understand what is going on with their health. It is also amazing to see how much more patients' lives improve with this type of medicine. Some of the additional things I do here include hormone replacement therapy, prolotherapy injections for joint pain, and IRR injections for asthma or breathing problems (an alternative treatment for asthma).

I graduated from Salus University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with my Masters degree in Physician Assistant Studies. I also received a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science from Brigham Young University Idaho. During my training at Salus University I had the privilege and blessing of training under Dr. Jeff Baker who helped set a path for me to integrative medicine. Before coming to the Healing Sanctuary, I practiced as a PA in central California in a family practice clinic. I love that I have an education in conventional medicine but that I can also practice the alternative and more natural medicine that we often do here at the Healing Sanctuary. I believe that both Western and Eastern medicine are important and am so grateful to have a knowledge of both.

When I am not at work or trying to deepen my knowledge of medicine (which I really enjoy in some of my spare time) I enjoy being in the outdoors. I also like playing sports, riding my bike, and enjoying the sun. To relax I will play my ukulele, read books, watch my favorite TV series or sports game, and take care of my chickens. I love variety and often am trying new things and hobbies.

My favorite thing to do is to be with my family. Together with my wife and two kiddos we enjoy being in the outdoors and playing games together. We love exploring new places, going on bike rides, hiking, and camping when the weather is nice. We miss the beaches of California but love the lakes and mountains of Idaho. Despite the miserable winters we are happy to be back in the great state of Idaho. I feel very blessed to be a part of the Healing Sanctuary.

Anna Zobell NP-C, MPH
Family Nurse Practitioner
Hi! I am a Family Nurse Practitioner. One of my favorite things about being an NP is taking the time to teach and also discuss with my patients the various options available to them to help improve their health. I have also been interested in Functional Medicine and Integrative Health for the last few years. I am so excited for the opportunity to work here at the Healing Sanctuary where we have a wider variety of options for people to not only heal from there medical conditions, but also to reach their optimal health! I love that we are able to use a holistic way of helping people with their mind, body, and spiritual health.
When I was in school to become a nurse practitioner, I became very concerned about the many side effects of all of the medications that I was told were the main treatment for many chronic diseases that people have. At the end of each of the chapters about the various medications and side effects, the book would have a small paragraph that would explain that if people could be encouraged to eat healthy foods and superfoods, and get enough exercise, then they wouldn't have to take those medications. Since then I have been looking for a place where I could truly help people PREVENT the chronic diseases, and hopefully use the least amount of medication possible. I am looking forward to help people heal their own bodies with natural ways and nutrition, as well as helping people become so healthy that they are able to get off of the medications they were prescribed previously.
After I got my RN degree from Ricks College, I served a mission in El Salvador where I was the mission nurse. Then I got a Master's in Public Health (MPH) at BYU because I was always interested in how to help people change their own health behaviors to live a healthier life. After that, we moved to Idaho and I felt "called" to become a nurse practitioner and went through the ISU program for my second master's degree.

I grew up in Oregon, so I am in Idaho transplant! My husband and I love it here and we want to stay! We are blessed to have two beautiful girls (a busy toddler and a baby). In my "free time" I love NAPS! 🙂 I also love girl's night's out, being in the outdoors, traveling to the Oregon Coast and exploring other new places. I love multitasking and listening to audiobooks. I try to practice what I preach with healthy eating, exercise daily, personal development audios, and meditation. Of course I am nowhere near perfect in any of these areas, but I am trying! I love finding new healthy and easy recipes!
