A Natural Approach to Fertility with Dr. Aumatma Shah, ND

Women's-Wellness---Aumatma-Shah.png

 

Infertility is not a disease, it’s a symptom.  When we are in optimal health, we are fertile.  Dr. Aumatma Shah

Having been in the fertility field a while myself, I really appreciate Dr. Aumatma's lighthearted, compassionate, and inquisitive attitude about fertility.  It is all too easy to get discouraged, melodramatic, etc, and she does none of that.

Trying to get pregnant, and not initially succeeding, is incredibly stressful.  To have someone on your team who is a bright light of hope can be a game changer.

Dr. Aumatma is a naturopathic physician, and her approach to fertility includes the following:

Testing:

She will, as the case demands, run tests on:

  • Full thyroid panel
  • Food sensitivity test
  • Detox panel
  • Nutrients panel
  • Genomics profile

DetoxifyinG:

As our endocrine systems are so sensitive to toxins, and there are so dang many of them out there, detoxification can be vital.

Rebuilding:

Get nutrients into the body and healing with homeopathics are some of her techniques.

Energetics:

Releasing past traumas and re-learning to be a receptive female again in this man's world are examples of what she can help.

Dr. Aumatma offered a free gift to our community, which is a "How Fertile Am I?" quiz that she will personally review.

If you are needing a little sunshine in your fertility shadow, you've got to listen to this interview below!
