I helped a patient raise his low testosterone by almost 2,000% in one month by following this regimen. My name is Dr. Tom Rofrano, and I am from The Natural Medicine Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I am also the author of FreeDiet®.
Low Testosterone Patient Case Study
I had a 36-year-old male patient who came to see me with colitis, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and bloody stools. He was feeling very fatigued and sluggish, had a low libido, and a lack of focus and concentration. He felt miserable. He didn’t feel good on the medication his GI doctor gave him and he wanted to get to the root cause.
I ordered a comprehensive health panel which includes the usual CBC, chemistry panel, lipids, and TSH, as well as ferritin and iron panel, inflammatory markers like CRP, uric acid, GGT, insulin, HA1c, complete thyroid hormones, DHEA, cortisol (adrenal hormones), testosterone, estrogen, and growth hormone, SHBG.
Lab Results Show the Root Causes
His lab results indicated high inflammation and low testosterone with a level of 33 ng/dL. He’s 36 years old, so his testosterone was lower than his age! This was probably the lowest I’ve ever seen in a man.
Optimal testosterone levels are over 600 for that age group. Other indicators from his lab testing indicated below-optimal cholesterol. If your cholesterol is 150 or below, that can diminish your hormone levels since cholesterol is a precursor to testosterone and other hormones.
His inflammatory marker, CRP, was very high (eight times optimal level), and his adrenal function was below optimal. His body was very depleted after having persistent bouts of diarrhea.
Deficiencies, Toxins, and Food Reactions
I also looked at functional labs to determine other root causes since he had chronic digestive issues and fatigue. I looked at tests for deficiencies, toxins, hormones, and food reactions— including gluten and leaky gut.
He had findings in all those areas, including gluten sensitivity and vitamin D deficiency which can contribute to low testosterone. So, I recommended a specific diet and supplements to help his body heal.
After one month’s time on the FreeDiet® and Natural Medicine Formulas® supplements, his testosterone went from 33 to 636, which was almost a 20X, or 2,000%, increase.
His low cholesterol increased 30 points, and his inflammation dropped dramatically to optimal levels.
His adrenal hormones went up to optimal levels, and his gut symptoms cleared up.
He was feeling the best he had in years and the skin issues and rashes he had been dealing with cleared up as well. In three months’ time, he lost 22 pounds and was at his optimal weidht.
The FreeDiet® – the Best Anti-Inflammatory Diet
One of the biggest things that helped to get all of these positive results in such a short amount of time was that I put him on FreeDiet®. FreeDiet® is a diet I developed years ago when I was figuring out how to heal my own chronic health issues including autoimmune thyroid Hashimoto’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
I had IBS, pain, fatigue, and skin issues, and I was feeling awful. I developed FreeDiet® through much research, trial, and error. This diet is free of gluten, gluten grains, sugar, yeast, dairy, eggs, soy, legumes, nightshades, and processed foods- all the foods most commonly responsible for inflammation, gut, thyroid, and other chronic health issues.
The FreeDiet® helped resolve my health conditions, and since then I’ve helped thousands of other people using it.
Supplements for Low Testosterone and Gut Health
I recommended other gut support supplements since he was dealing with candida yeast overgrowth, bacterial imbalance, and leaky gut.
I also put him on Curcumin, Resveratrol, and Quercetin to help with inflammatory support. He was also on adrenal vibrance and DHEA to help support adrenal function as DHEA is a precursor to testosterone. He was on a low dose of 10 milligrams to help support healthy testosterone levels.
I used other nutrients for the deficiencies that he came back positive for, and that included Vitamins A, C, E, copper, zinc, CoQ10, B complex, and NAC.
I am not suggesting you need all these if you have low testosterone. This is what he needed due to his lab findings.
Healing the Gut and Optimizing Testosterone Naturally
His results were remarkable, and his commitment to sticking with it is commendable. He could have easily taken testosterone injections and other drugs for his colitis, but he wanted to get to the root cause and not only feel better but actually get better.
So, he stuck with it, and it wasn’t easy. I commend him for being committed to the diet and supplements, sticking to the process, and getting amazing results in one month’s time.
He said he feels the best he has in years!
If the root causes are discovered and the right solutions are provided, I believe almost anyone can get better.
