Dr Patel is passionate about the health of families and our future generation. According to traditional chinese medicine, Jing is the essence of who and what we are and determines our health and lifespan. Today many consider Jing to be analogous to DNA. It’s important to give each child the healthiest start which begins before conception. Each child is born with vitality, depending on the vitality of their biological parents. This program focuses on the time before conception to improve not only egg and sperm quality but to also encourage a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. 

You may benefit from our unique preconception fertility program if:

  • You are interested in improving health before expanding your family
  • You’ve tried to conceive but have hit a roadblock? 
  • IUI or IVF was not successful
  • You preparing for an IUI or IVF round and you’d like to increase your chances

We offer the first and only Naturopathic fertility program in Georgia! 

Our fertility wellness program is designed to optimize our patient’s preconception health. Each plan is tailored to the unique needs of our patients, but here are some common features:

    1. Naturopathic assessment and health history appointment with Dr. Shama Patel. Both partners are recommended to attend the appointment. Because egg and sperm quality are equally vital, we prefer both parents to be involved from the beginning. (Of course, all families are welcome, and this program is customizable to all families. We welcome learning about your particular needs). Your first visit as a new patient will take between 75 and 90 minutes. Dr. Patel will discuss both partners’ medical history including any past fertility treatments and develop a care plan catered to your specific health needs.
    2. Functional medicine testing to assess sperm and egg quality. Dr. Patel will use advanced testing you may not have been offered in the past to determine any barriers to optimal fertility including nutritional deficiencies, inflammatory processes or anything else that may be affecting implantation, and successful gestation.
