Have you received a clean bill of health or had your symptoms dismissed by other health care providers as “getting older” and yet you still feel that there may be some gaps in your health? Dr. Kim can help you develop a unique plan for you to achieve optimal health.
We provide telemedicine services where we do a telephone and/or Skype consultation and perform a detailed health assessment of your personal and family history. Using this, we formulate your unique health timeline and explain how certain triggers in your history can be correlated with the symptoms you are currently experiencing. We use this timeline to customize a laboratory order which goes far beyond your standard primary care findings and then use these functional lab results to formulate health and wellness plan to get you on the road to feeling like yourself again.
At Colorado Center of Health and Nutrition, we don’t offer you a diet, a generic plan, or a non-specific system, we give you a lifestyle solution. Dr. Kim Bruno is an expert in her field of integrative nutrition, and has the experience you need to optimize your health, improve your digestive function, manage your auto-immune disorder, balance your hormones, successfully lose weight, and improve your longevity. We know that you are an individual, and that no single treatment plan will work for everyone, therefore we utilize the latest functional diagnostic testing to determine your unique underlying health condition, and then use this unique baseline to create a custom designed treatment plan to meet your specific goals and fit with your lifestyle needs.
In addition to nationwide telemedicine services via Skype and/or telephone, Dr. Kim serves the Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Windsor and Front Range areas of Colorado as well as Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyoming, all in her Fort Collins office which is located in the Natural Health Associates building.

About Functional Medicine:
Modern, mainstream medicine uses an acute care approach when treating patients. This approach is generally short sighted and best for acute conditions that can be cured with surgery or a simple course of prescription medication. Unfortunately, it is still the primary route taken even when the conditions are not acute, but are instead chronic, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis. The reality is, acute care is ill equipped to address complex and chronic disease.
Functional medicine, on the other hand, uses a systems oriented approach, which is able to analyze the unique genetic makeup of each individual, along with a detailed examination of lifestyle and environmental factors, such as stress, diet, and exposure to toxins. To many patients, it may seem that this is an exclusively holistic approach, and although it is more naturopathic, it is also deeply science based and does not discount the benefit of modern medicine by integrating both in treatment plans when needed.
Functional Medicine uses diagnostics, methodology and tools that are specifically designed to identify, prevent and treat chronic diseases for the long term, not just the immediate, bothersome symptoms. Utilizing an individualized, patient-centered approach functional medicine doctors are able to break through the molds of traditional, mainstream medicine and proactively help their patients achieve life long health.
