Feeling a little off…like you are losing your edge?
Get the old you back!
Many women begin to experience signs of perimenopause during the late ’30s and early ’40s as hormones change. You may notice feeling fatigued, hot flashes, vaginal dryness or pain as well as insomnia, forgetfulness or new feelings of anxiety. While this is normal in the aging process, there are treatments and strategies to bring you into balance for overall wellbeing and optimal health. You’ve worked so hard to get where you are in life – let’s develop a customized solution to keep you at the top of your game.

All consultations will involve either a comprehensive or more focused history taking to explore the root cause(s) of the current symptom/disease. After this evaluation Dr. Silver will make specific recommendations about a treatment plan that can involve: dietary changes, fitness programs, high quality nutritional supplements and specialty lab testing. If the patient is being evaluated for Bioidentical HRT, natural quality compounded hormones may also be prescribed. All questions will be answered during these consultations by Dr. Silver herself; there is no “hand off” to support staff. At the conclusion of the initial consultation, Dr. Silver will review all recommendations and schedule any requisite follow up appointments.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is considered to be a safer option for men compared to more traditional prescribed synthetic hormones for several reasons.
- They are made from yams and soybeans rather than synthetic compounds so that their structure is much more similar to our own hormones.
- Customized and compounded bioidentical hormones seek to restore balance based on specialized hormone testing to deliver the appropriate doses for each man.
- Bioidentical HRT gives daily physiologic doses in a cream form to ensure natural physiologic daily levels. This is in sharp contrast to more traditional testosterone replacement which is injected in supra-physiologic doses that causes an unwanted high peak/low trough testosterone level.

One they are made from yams and soybeans rather than synthetic compounds so that their structure is much more similar to our own hormones. Two, customized and compounded bioidentical hormones seek to restore balance based on specialized hormone testing to deliver the appropriate doses for each woman. Three, bioidentical HRT can be delivered via several routes depending on each woman’s needs such as capsules or topical creams.
“Dr. Silver was our primary care doctor in Boulder CO. Please note that she has all the qualities that a doctor should possess. Excellent and outstanding!”
After years of success as a professional athlete, my performance and health came to a halt in the summer of 2010. Local doctors did their standard tests and diagnosed me with mono, Epstein-Barr, and eventually chronic fatigue. These doctors prescribed me with rest and anti-viral medication that weren’t sure to help. I walked out the door with more questions than answers. I spent the next few years cycling between bouts of good energy that would last for several months, followed shortly by crushing fatigue and more prescribed rest. I was looking for explanation from every resource I could find, but every doctor fell short of a good explanation.
Through a mutual friend, I was introduced to Dr. Silver (Kiki) last summer. From our initial visit, I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. From her warm and caring personality to her athletic background, I felt that I had finally found somebody that could relate to my feelings and had the personality to help me determine the root cause of my health issues. She looked into areas of my health which nobody had previously mentioned. She took the time to explain how different systems in my body were affecting each other, and how I could improve the function of each of those systems. Her approach would help my immune system work naturally rather than counting on drugs to do the work. Though the recoveries for my conditions were not quick ones, I am incredibly grateful to have Kiki on my side to help me work towards the goal of complete recovery.
