Hi! My name is Elizabeth Rohe, and I am a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and Registered Nurse. I was born and raised in Dallas TX and am happily married to my high school sweetheart. We have a daughter whom we love very much.
I received my Bachelor of Science in business administration at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2007. I was lucky enough to study abroad in Rome, Italy during that time. I then went on to attain my Bachelor of Science in nursing at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2012.
It all began when I was first exposed to functional medicine when I had unexplained abdominal pain and other unusual symptoms. At first, I started with conventional methods such as going from doctor to doctor and having multiple unnecessary surgeries, none of which brought any relief. Eventually my path led me to see functional medicine practitioners, and because of that after healing my gut, changing my diet, and taking targeted nutrients, my symptoms improved and never returned.
After working as an RN in the Neuro ICU and Neonatal ICU, and as a nurse birth assistant at a birthing center, I knew I wanted to work in the functional medicine field driven by my own journey to health. In 2015, the stars aligned when I discovered Carpathia Collaborative clinic in Dallas.
Shortly after beginning my work as a nurse in the clinic, I enrolled in The Institute for Functional Medicine and became a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in May of 2018.
I am still with Carpathia Collaborative where I now see clients for fertility, hormone balance, and other health issues. I am the only Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex that focuses on fertility. My passion is centered on helping couples avoid or lessen the emotional, physical, and financial roller coaster involved in trying to conceive. I want you to get pregnant, stay pregnant, and have a healthy pregnancy and baby!
My Fertility Story: In 2014, my husband and I attempted to grow our family, but pregnancy did not come easy. After being diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis, along with my husband’s male factor issues, we attempted multiple rounds of in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Following the first
round of IVF, I implemented functional medicine therapies on my husband and I with noticeable improvements. Eventually, we were able to achieve pregnancy with our miracle baby girl. This journey of searching to gain back my health along with delayed fertility, coupled with my functional medicine background, inspired me to want to help other couples conceive and improve
the health and wellbeing of others.
Outside of my work, I enjoy traveling around the world, as I have been to over 21 countries and counting. On the weekends you may see me at a local farmers market, flower arboretum, hiking, taking a group exercise class, or out to eat with my husband and daughter.
