“Our fertility enhancement program is designed to bring your body back into balance so you feel strong, vital, healthy, and alive. Conception and pregnancy then happen as nature intended because your body is ready to bring new life into the world.”

The guiding principle of our fertility enhancement program is “Life Creates Life”. When you are vital, healthy, and full of life, your fertile potential naturally expresses itself in everything you do, and subtle obstructions to your innate fertility can be removed. It is with this principle in mind that we have developed our fertility enhancement program which incorporates a combination of acupuncture, herbal, nutritional, and mind-body protocols tailored to your individual needs. Statistics show that approximately one in six to ten couples will experience issues with conception and fertility. The imbalances which can cause difficulty in conception can often be corrected by very subtle, natural adjustments to the endocrine system. 

Our Experience

Using acupuncture, customized herbal prescriptions, targeted nutritional supplementation, and mind-body lifestyle guidance, we have helped many patients with these and other conditions that affect fertility to achieve healthy pregnancy and birth of healthy babies:

  • Unexplained infertility
  • Advanced maternal age
  • Poor Ovarian Reserve
  • High FSH
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Thin endometrial lining
  • Premature Ovarian Failure (POF)
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • IVF/IUI Support
  • Amenorrhea
  • Recurrent miscarriage
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Male factor issues such as low sperm count, motility, or morphology

Success Stories

We have helped many couples with fertility struggles to conceive. Many of them had tried conventional fertility treatments without success, others wanted to try a more natural route first, and still others were told they could only conceive using IVF or that they had little to no chance of ever conceiving a child.

Our Program

Our fertility enhancement program is designed to support your body’s innate intelligence and harmonize the delicate balance of your fertility cycle. We incorporate a detailed holistic analysis of your unique constitution and combine it with information gleaned by your laboratory results. It is our view that by combining holistic and scientific we are on the cutting edge of fertility care, providing our patients with a high degree of accuracy and efficacy. Your treatment program will consist of:

  • A detailed intake consultation to pinpoint the type, source, and cause of disharmony in your fertility cycle.
  • Development of a customized treatment plan that addresses the symptoms as well as the root cause of your fertility issues.
  • Regular acupuncture treatments designed to support and encourage proper balance at every stage of the fertility cycle.
  • Customized herbal prescriptions tailored to your individual needs, targeted to maximize each phase of your cycle.
  • A targeted nutritional support regimen that is designed to nourish and balance blocked and depleted glands, and that is grounded in biomedical knowledge and research.
  • Mind-body exercises, meditations, and lifestyle guidance that leverage the amazing power of the mind and emotions.

Chinese Medicine – 2,000 years of success treating infertility

The first record of infertility treatment using Chinese Medicine dates back to approximately 11AD. Gynecology, or the exclusive specialty of treating women’s health issues, has existed as a distinct art in Chinese Medicine since the same period. What this means is that when you begin a Chinese Medical regimen for infertility, you are entering into a form of treatment that has been used by literally tens of millions of women throughout the ages.

A comprehensive approach

Whether a couple opts for 100% natural or technologically assisted conception, natural fertility enhancement offers a much-needed element – the element of holistic, individualized care. While conventional medicine is king in terms of scientific research and complex microscopic procedures, Traditional Chinese Medicine is unmatched in its understanding and application of treatment that addresses the entirety of body, mind, AND spirit.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has known for centuries that body, mind and spirit are part of a single, organic whole. Any attempt at healing and wholeness must by definition address all three of these vital aspects of the human being. In other words, the state of hormonal balance and function, and the structure of organs and tissues, influence and are influenced by life experiences, emotional tendencies, thought patterns, and daily habits. Where conventional medicine often seeks to eliminate mind and spirit as “confounding variables” which skew the results of experiments, TCM includes them as a matter of fundamental principle.

A win-win for fertility patients

There is no way for any healthcare provider, natural or conventional, to predict when or if you will become pregnant. However, in cases where pregnancy is achieved, it usually happens within 3 to 9 months of treatment. And, if you are planning to try IUI or IVF, your body will be more prepared to respond to its fullest potential because of the time you have spent on your fertility program with us.

The investment

Our treatment program is both affordable and cost-effective. Whether you are using natural treatment only, or combining with conventional treatment, our goal is to provide you an option that brings maximum results for the financial investment.

Dr. Z is an an incredibly caring and compassionate healthcare professional. I began seeing him last April for fertility enhancement following a miscarriage. I was anxious to heal, move on, and conceive again right away. He helped me to slow down and patiently allow my body the time and resources to get in optimal shape for carrying a baby. As a result, I am now 20 weeks pregnant, feeling fantastic, and progressing perfectly. I come from a family full of chiropractors, an acupuncturist, and an LMT, and I am a yoga teacher myself, so natural health and healing have always been a way of life for me. Not living near my family, I seek out outside care to help me maintain my wellness, and my standards for the providers I choose is very high. Dr. Z stands out as a singularly gifted healer.

When we looked into acupuncture it was to help increase the odds of IVF treatment. We decided to meet Dr. Zurawin because of his personal story and reviews we saw about his practice. He was very open to all of our questions and providing us with great information. When we left the office my husband and I felt very comfortable placing our fertility issues in Dr. Zurawin’s hands. We were not going to start IVF for at least 6 months and we going to give acupuncture and Dr. Zurawin our full faith and attention. We started treatments right away, as ovulation was fast approaching. Within 2 weeks of meeting Dr. Zurawin we were PREGNANT!!!! After 2 years of trying and fertility treatments, a few needles and an open mind helped us get our baby. (Yes it’s way more then that) I learned a lot from Dr. Zurawin and highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking alternative treatments to infertility or high risk pregnancy. I visited with Dr. Zurawin and his wife Yumi throughout our pregnancy. I definitely attribute our successfully pregnancy to Dr. Zurawin and his practice.

Ease. Clarity. Alignment. Trust. Joy. Comfort. Transformation. These are some of the words that come to mind when I reflect on my sessions at Lifegate Acupuncture. I am very thankful to Dr. Jeff for his compassionate nature, his talent, and his beautiful inviting clinic space

Dr. Zurawin is one of those rare doctors who really LISTENS to his patients. He spends the time to evaluate your individual needs, listening to your concerns, and come up with a plan of action. I have been seeing Dr Z for a few weeks now in hopes of getting pregnant. I know it will be a journey. The only reason I did not rate him 5 stars today is I am waiting to see if this treatment will work for me :)) So far so good….Other doctors could learn a few lessons from Dr Z’s bed side manners. He is genuine and truly wants to help people! Every time I leave after an appointment, I feel less anxiety and my appetite has improved. I would definitely recommend Dr Z!

Update August 4, 2012
My husband and I just found out we are expecting our first baby!

We had tried so many traditional avenue of so called “specialists” but had no real success to get pregnant. After a few months of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and food changes, Dr. Zurawin was able to help me regulate my cycle. His methods helped balance my body back to normal and we were able to conceive.

Dr. Z’s personal approach and follow up makes him the exception in medicine today. I wish more doctors cared for their patients the way Dr. Z did. He is a gem! I have recommended him on multiple occasions.

I have had a wonderful experience at Lifegate Acupuncture! I was having a lot of pain and was considering major surgery to try to remedy the problem. I went to Dr. Zurawin and he took his time listening to my history and evaluating my condition. He was optimistic that he could help me. After just a few treatments, I was 90% better. I have continued to see him as recommended and I feel like a million bucks! It’s amazing how being pain-free feels – I am happier, I have more energy, and I can get on with the important things in my life. I am seeing benefits beyond what I had hoped for. I would highly recommend Lifegate Acupuncture to anyone!

Jennifer

I have suffered from infertility for years and it feels like my husband and I have been through quite a journey. A few surgeries and specialists later we decided to try acupuncture before going down the IVF route. I can wholeheartedly say that I could not have made a better decision than to seek treatment from Dr. Zurawin! His compassion for your case is truly heartwarming. He spends as much time as needed to make you feel comfortable and to understand the path on which he has set you on. Over the months I can tell that my body feels more balanced in all areas of health and my emotional nerves have calmed. In all the years we have been trying I have yet to have any luck getting pregnant, until I saw Dr Z. I have now been able to get pregnant twice and even though I have not been able to carry to term yet, I know I will get there with Dr. Z’s help. I truly attribute my pregnancies to him. Just when I thought I was at my wits end, I was given this gift of knowledge knowing that my body could become pregnant. Dr. Z is always confident and optimistic and I know through his treatment plan my husband and I will have our baby.

I have also had the privilege of utilizing Lifegate’s other services by getting a massage form his talented and certified wife Yumiko. She gave me one of the best if not the best massage I have ever experienced! She is extremely professional and truly knows her craft. She provided different techniques that I have never experienced before, but wish I would have as they helped tremendously for all different muscle groups. The muscle areas that needed extra attention were met with perfection and innovation. I can’t wait until I can see her again!

The dream team, as I call them, are a rare example of professionals that treat you as a human being, versus a number in a waiting room. Highly recommend Lifegate Acupuncture to all!

The result is your chance of getting pregnant improves significantly!

Here’s How Our Unique Combination of FOUR Very Potent, Time-Tested 100% Natural Therapies Work To Bring The Body To Heal Itself

Gentle Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. 

Herbal Medicine

Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat hormonal conditions including thyroid, menstrual disorders, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.

Functional Nutritional Therapy

When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because the body’s key systems are optimized.

Relaxation and Stress-Reduction

When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.

Our Proven Process

Initial Consultation

At your initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your fertility issues including current symptoms, medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan

Once your initial consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of attack.

Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root cause of your fertility issues and address your most pressing symptoms.

Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution

You’ll return for weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results: 

  • Less or no pain
  • Normalized menstrual flow
  • Level, stable mood
  • Balanced hormones 
  • No abnormal bleeding between periods

You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your progress is cumulative and that your monthly cycle is well balanced to achieve the best conceivable cycle..

Transitional Care As Things Stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs within the first 2 months. Initially you’ll come in weekly, then as your condition improves the frequency becomes less. We re-evaluate your case with you periodically and fine tune as needed until we achieve the desired results.

We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.

Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.

Common Questions & Answers About Our Treatment Program For Fertility

Acupuncture improves your neuroendocrine axis (the communication between your nervous and endocrine systems), enhances circulation to your ovaries and uterus, and dramatically reduces stress – all of which benefits your fertility.

Herbal medicines have been used for fertility issues for centuries. They restore depleted glands, balance your endocrine system, reduce inflammation and have many other positive effects on your reproductive function.

DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?

Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs in addition to our fertility diet plan that we’ve used for over a decade to help over a thousand couples conceive.

Can natural medicine REALLY help my problem?

Absolutely. Your body is capable of healing ANY problem, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?

We’ve seen it take as little as 4 weeks and as long as 12 months. Everybody is different and the time prognosis varies.

WHAT ARE YOUR SUCCESS RATES?

Since 2010, a majority of the patients we see for fertility issues end up having a baby when they fully follow the treatment plan. (full disclaimer)
