I would like to tell you about my journey which led me to treatment with Dr. Kim Bruno. One year ago, I was at Cedars Sinai having stents put into my heart. Even though I am young and fit, my left main to my heart was 90% blocked, hence the need for the stents I was in LA on my way to DC when that happened. I went to the hospital because I couldn't sleep that previous night due to difficult in breathing. This was the first time I have ever experienced difficulty in breathing. Oddly, I only experienced difficulty in breathing when I was sedentary. When I was on the treadmill, was speaking, walking, or doing anything active, I seemingly was fine. Only when I was watching TV or sitting down did I experience this breathing difficulty.
My cardiologist at Cedars said, don't be surprised if your breathing problem doesn't go away, even after stents. My breathing improved slightly, but never got 100% better. On that fateful nite in LA, my difficulty factor in breathing was about an 8 (on a scale of 0 - 10). After stenting, it was about a 5.
Since reviewing the functional lab work and then following the treatment plan Dr. Bruno designed, my breathing has been much better for the first time since the surgery. I once read (after internet searching) that a lack of B vitamins can cause difficulty of breathing. I still do not know the exact cause of this issue, but I know it is much better. Before taking the supplements, my breathing difficulty was about a 4-5. Today, it is about a 1. And most importantly, it is getting better every day.
If this didn't work, I was going to Cedars to see a real pulmonologist. I saw one in Hawaii, but they don't compare to the quality of doctors at that hospital. Since my pulmonologist in Hawaii said he hadn't seen anything like me whereby I feel better when I exercise and am only bad when I sit (no problem sleeping now), I wasn't optimistic that anyone here could help me.
But the treatment plan from Dr. Bruno has done it. Thanks so much; I am so glad that this process has helped me in an unexpected way!
The best thing my medical doctor has ever done for me was the referral to Dr. Kim Bruno. Her nutritional and supplemental plan was tailor made just for me and my specific issues, and was changed as my needs changed. This new food plan (it's not a diet!) has allowed me to finally start healing after many years of spinning my wheels and being sick. It has also led to the discovery and treatment of an underlying issue that most likely would not have been found by my PHP. At the risk of sounding cheesy I actually have my life back again, and I could not be more grateful for Dr. Kim!!
Dr. Bruno was amazing. When I arrived after the Holidays last year, I was anxious and had been experiencing severe menstrual cramps that my OBGYN was unable to lessen.
With the guidance and appropriate supplements I am not taking any medication, my cramps are significantly minimized, and my metabolism is no longer shot.
Thank you for getting me back to normal.
