If you are trying to get pregnant optimizing whole body health should be a top priority. But even if you are not trying to get pregnant, the natural fertility treatment protocol used by Dr. Tom Rofrano has the potential to help you heal your body and feel your very best.
The demand for safe and effective natural fertility treatment options are on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 10 percent of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15-44 have difficulty getting pregnant or staying pregnant. However, it sure seems like from talking to people and hearing one fertility struggle story after the other that the number would be much higher. In 2016 the fertility rate in the United States was the lowest it has ever been. And then just last week heartbreaking news was released about the storage tank malfunction at the The Pacific Fertility Center.
Could there possibly be a natural fertility treatment option? We wanted to reach out to a local doctor who has helped our family with a variety of medical issues in the past. We also know Dr. Rofrano understands firsthand the distress of not being able to start a family when you are ready and when you have tried everything.
Developing a Natural Fertility Treatment
Dr. Tom Rofrano, became hyper-focused on fertility issues in women when his wife Dawn struggled with infertility of her own 14 years ago. Like many women, Dawn tried almost everything to get pregnant (read her full story here). It was only after Dr. Rofrano took Dawn on as a patient of his own at his Natural Medicine Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida that Dawn’s body became well enough to conceive. Dr. Rofrano has since developed a natural fertility treatment with his Functional & FreeDiet™– A 7-Step Program to determine the root cause of your health problem and provide you with whole body permanent solutions.
A Functional Approach to Fertility
Dr. Rofrano’s approach to infertility is not a solitary focus. His Natural Medicine Clinic takes a functional approach, meaning that he looks at the entire body when treating his patients. Functional Medicine centers on the way our bodily systems work with each other and as a whole. Thus, like certain inflammatory conditions and diseases, such as Multiple Sclerosis and others, infertility can be a byproduct of discord within the whole body. Dr. Rofrano says: “It’s about finding the imbalances, stress areas, and deficiencies and correcting them.” He goes on to say that, “fertility is about getting your body to an optimal state of health so you can easily get pregnant and carry a healthy baby to term.”
By taking this functional approach, Dr. Rofrano employs a 7-step program that he uses on his patients at the Natural Medicine Clinic. Chiropractic adjustments are just one of the important components of this treatment, so it is not only a chiropractic protocol and not only a fertility treatment, but a proprietary process that he has named Functional & Free™.
This treatment protocol begins with the nervous system. The nervous system controls and coordinates every organ, tissue, and gland in the body and helps to keep everything in balance. When outside and inside stressors compromise the nervous system, infertility (as well as other conditions) can occur. Chiropractic adjustments correct these imbalances, but they are used in conjunction with other modalities to optimize the health and wellness of each patient.
Step 1: Whole Body Health Analysis- This important first step includes comprehensive and advanced diagnostic lab work testing to determine the root cause of your condition. This initial step is pivotal because every patient and every body is different.
Step 2: Permanent Solutions- Your lab work results often reveal the root causes of your condition. This allows for Dr. Rofrano to customize and provide clear solutions for your body to heal and become more balanced. There are so many things to look at with lab work, but nutritional status is definitely one of them. Simply having a lack of iron, vitamin D, selenium or iodine can be standing between you and pregnancy. Hidden stress can also be a contributing factor to infertility–not only can stress contribute to a nutrient deficiency, it disrupts your hormones and so much more! Simple lab tests can help you get to the root of the problem.
Step 3: Healing Hands- We’ve touched on this already, but chiropractic care is an integral part of this process, and thus it is a part of all Permanent Solutions. These gentle (no cracking!) chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue neuromuscular therapy relieve pain, improve function, and allow you to feel the best you have in years.
Step 4: Functional Fitness Training- Physical fitness is essential to a long-term healthy and balanced body. Dr. Rofrano and his team train you in exercises that improve strength, flexibility, balance and posture, to ensure that your improvements are long lasting.
Step 5: Natural Medicine Formulas®- Healing digestive and immune health is a fundamental element of balancing the systems in the body. We do not receive all of the vitamin and nutrients our bodies need from the foods we eat. Environmental toxins and food-production techniques degrade our food supply and disrupt our bodily functions. Specific and targeted supplements that support your digestive and immune health are necessary for optimal health and wellness, giving you more energy and mental clarity.
Step 6: The FreeDiet™- Speaking of digestive health, proper nutrition is yet another key component of peak health. This proprietary diet is free of the most common allergens and foods that give rise to sensitivities. By eliminating these foods, you are able to identify and the foods most responsible for digestive, skin, and other chronic health issues. It is a diet that reduces inflammation, promotes healthy digestion and vibrant energy, and gives each patient the ability to fit into clothes they haven’t worn in years! It also helps you to become free of pain, fatigue, fogginess, and excess fat.
Step 7: Free for Life– This last step provides you with the tools you need to maintain the optimal health you reach with this protocol. Dr. Rofrano provides guidance on lifestyle modifications, such as additional exercise programs, stress relief activities, proper sleep habits, and tips on minimizing exposure to toxins to continue your journey towards lifelong vibrant health.
Functional & FreeDiet™- Natural Fertility Treatment Results
Dr. Rofrano has treated many women for infertility with this program. In fact, many women have come to his clinic for different symptoms and have ended up getting pregnant while undergoing treatment. Dr. Rofrano told me about a 45-year-old woman who came in with her husband. She had neck pain, and he had frozen shoulder. They had been married for over 20 years, never used birth control but never got pregnant. Amazingly, within two months she became pregnant. Functional & Free™ Protocol optimizes your health. When health is optimized, the body creates the right environment to get pregnant.
In another patient story, Dr. Rofrano told me about a 25-year-old woman who went to see him for severe digestive issues, brain fog, pain, and fatigue. She had seen many other doctors and had even been to the emergency room multiple times because the pain was so bad. All her symptoms cleared up following Dr. Rofrano’s program with one additional surprise. Three months into it, she became pregnant. She was surprised (and overjoyed!) because she was told by her gynecologist that because of her PCOS, she was infertile (PCOS is among the top causes of infertility in women and more than 1 in 5 women suffer from this condition.)
Dr. Rofrano’s Functional & Free™ Protocol is not a miracle or supernatural phenomenon. It is a personalized program that is customized to your body’s needs to produce optimal wellness and results. The good news is, there are many natural tools you can use to heal your body and become pregnant. When health is elevated to what it should be, our bodies function at peak performance. Thus, our bodily systems (like our reproductive system) work more effectively.
If you are struggling with fertility, it can’t hurt to optimize the health of your whole body. You really have to try and look at everything you are doing –the foods you eat, the stress you are under, the amount of exercise you do (too much is just as bad as too little!), how much sleep you get, etc. And any mom can tell you that being a mom is a very demanding job! You definitely want to be in peak physical shape before you conceive.
There are a number of excellent resources online about how to get pregnant naturally, but if you want to be under the guidance of a functional medicine practitioner, I can’t recommend Dr. Tom Rofrano more highly. His office is located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida but he offers phone consults and works with a number of patients out of state (and even in other countries!) He can offer guidance as to what lab work to have done, what diet changes to make, and so much more.
