Personalized integrative medicine for your optimal health
Boulder Peak Health is an integrative medicine clinic – it combines “Western Medicine” (UCSF Board Certified Internal Medicine) & Functional Medicine (Fellowship trained in Functional & Regenerative Medicine). This is a unique & highly sought after type of individualized medical care, that seeks to identify underlying root causes of symptoms in order to help restore and optimize health.
Boulder Peak Health offers a highly comprehensive analysis, stemming from the belief that a patient’s health can only be restored if ALL aspects of health are explored.
It diverges from the routine 15 minute medical appointment that often ends with a quick prescription and leaves a patient feeling rushed, “unheard” and confused. Patients leave Boulder Peak Health feeling listened to and empowered with evidence based knowledge about WHY they don’t feel well and HOW to see their health restored.
Dr. Silver’s credentials and years of experience in helping patients with complex medical conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Irritable Bowel, and numerous autoimmune conditions has made her a referral source across the United States for patients who have eluded medical diagnosis. In addition, her expertise in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has helped many peri-menopausal and menopausal aged women and men in andropause.
Her own athletic background with multiple podium triathlon finishes has enabled her to oversee the care of patients seeking to improve athletic performance in addition to those who have struggled with adrenal fatigue & mitochondrial dysfunction.
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.

“As a competitive age-group triathlete and cyclist for more than 20 years, my body has experienced it’s share of ups and downs.”
Many doctors through the years have misdiagnosed various ailments and injuries, told me to back off the training and hinted that my best days were behind me. That’s not the message you will get from Boulder Peak Health.
Dr. Kiki Silver is passionately focused on ensuring that your best days are ahead of you! She understands the needs – and most importantly – the mindset of those of us who don’t ever want to stop doing the activities we love the most. Her comprehensive approach and “Ritz-Carlton” level service is why she is the Gold Standard in athletic performance optimization and integrative medicine. After experiencing first-hand the time, care, and thoughtfulness she brings to each interaction, there is nobody I trust more with the health of my family than Dr. Silver.
