While traveling to Italy in November 2009, I contracted a sinus
infection that first appeared as a simple
common cold with upper respiratory congestion. Upon return to
Pennsylvania, still suffering, I saw my family doctor who eventually
prescribed two strong antibiotics and the steroid prednisone along
with a decongestant. After another month with no relief, my family
doctor recommended that I see my allergist, who prescribed an
even stronger antibiotic along with a heavier dose of prednisone.
After three more weeks and still no relief, my allergist prescribed
still another, even stronger antibiotic, ordered a CAT scan that
later revealed a total blockage of the sinus drainage system,
and hence referred me to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist.
Nine weeks had then passed with no relief. The ENT specialist
prescribed one final course of the strongest?sinus antibiotic
available, plus a follow-up CAT scan to be administered three
weeks later for comparison. The follow up scan revealed very little
change in the blockage, so sinus surgery was now the next logical
step. The description of the surgery included breaking my septum
and clipping nasal tissue, plus the likelihood of future surgeries
every few years as required by most patients. The ENT doctor candidly
suggested that you do whatever you can to avoid the surgery? I
scheduled the sinus surgery to occur in three weeks but nonetheless
had not abandoned alternative treatments. My final option was
to try acupuncture, which led me to Dr. Chung-Hu Tao. Five days
before the scheduled surgery, I came down with vertigo (another
new illness for me), and therefore moved my first acupuncture
treatment to that same afternoon with hope that it could also
alleviate the dizziness of vertigo along with this extremely stubborn
Having never experienced acupuncture before in my life, I had
no idea what to expect, or where to turn. Dr. Chung-Hu Tao's impressive
resume, multiple-state certifications, and professional credentials
were all very reassuring. After my initial consultation with Dr.
Tao, I immediately began an aggressive regimen of
acupuncture and herbal therapy. Dr. Tao advised four acupuncture
treatments over the next six days, and if there were no sinus
blockage relief, then I should proceed with the surgery. However,
after only two acupuncture treatments, I cancelled the surgery
as the sinus blockage had already reduced by about 30 percent.
Amazing! Today, after having completed a total of eleven acupuncture
treatments over a three week period, my sinus blockage symptoms
have disappeared, and the vertigo is 95% alleviated. Considering
the three-month barrage of traditional medical treatments and
considering the surgical last resort? my results with Dr. Tao
are truly amazing! I am cured, and all with NO drugs and NO surgery.
Although my medical insurance covered no portion of my treatments
with Dr. Tao, I still saved over one
thousand dollars in deductibles and co-pays versus the surgical
option. Also, by exploring the acupuncture
alternative, I successfully avoided lost work time due to post-op
recovery, and eliminated the prospect of repeat surgeries for
the remainder of my life.
We are fortunate in the Lehigh Valley to have the wisdom, expertise
and skills of Dr. Chung-Hu Tao providing supplemental or alternative
treatments to traditional medicine. I highly recommend Dr. Tao
and will certainly seek his advice for any future medical challenges,
both for myself and for my family.
With sincere gratitude,
had the pleasure of seeing Glen in our outpatient otolaryngology
office for follow up on April 12, 2010. As you know, Glen has
an underlying issue of severe allergic rhinitis, for which he
still receives allergy immunotherapy from you. He was worked up
for chronic sinusitis and at the time we felt it was borderline
whether surgical intervention versus ongoing allergy treatment
was necessary. Glen has done well, decompensated and is doing
well again now with intervention by Mr. Chung-Hu Tao, acupuncturist,
- During this decompensation Glen developed an acute episode of
labyrinthitis which then progressed to benign positional vertigo.
With both acupuncture as well as Epley's maneuvers Glen's vertigo
has now completely resolved. Audiometry during his workup was
normal and symmetric in both ears.
impression today is
Benign positional vertigo is resolved.
History of chronic sinusitis, which is stable at this point and
we are forgoing any surgical intervention unless there is continued
exacerbation of symptoms.
From the summary of E.N.T. specialist report made by Dr. Andrew
W. indicated that this case that the patient has totally relieved
his symptoms and it's true as patient's own testimonials states
that he is no longer need for surgery for his severe rhinitis
and his vertigo also resolved too."
am a 33 year old man with cerebral palsy since early
childhood with allergies since age 28. My allergy symptoms indluce
sneezing, rhinorrhea, sinus headaches, cough and eustachian tube
congestion which sometimes could cause my earache and ear pressure
increased. I was unable to tolerate allergy injections, even in
low dose could cause me coughing in an hour later. I am going
for acupuncture treatment for my vertigo, and one of the treatment
could last up to 10 days and another for 30 days, the other symptom
of my coughing, asthma, wheezing and sinus congestion and headache,
depression also greatly improved and under a good control. The
medication to use for inhaled steroid also reduced. I feel I am
getting more healthy and will follow up my additional regular
visits to control my complex symptom.Thank you, Dr. Tao!"
" I am 37 years old and have dealt with chronic sinusitis
for over twenty years. After having used Western medicine for
many years and still having symptoms I wanted another alternative.
I decided to see Mr. Tao after moving to the area and not wanting
to travel to the Poconos to have acupuncture when needed. I saw
Mr. Tao for six weeks one time per week. These were during my
most problematic months September and October. After my first
visit I noticed an improvement and was able to stop using allergy
prescriptions that evening. I woke up being able to breath clearly.
I finished my six week session and am not taking any allergy medications.
I take one herb that controls post nasal drip. I know for a fact
that acupuncture works me! "
experienced pain in my left shoulder, radiating to my left arm
and also to my chest. I had electro-cardiogram and
nuclear stress test, my heart is o.k. but a cervical MRI diagnosed
advanced DJD at C5-6 and C6-7 with spurring and severe foraminal
stenosis at C5-C6 and moderate stenosis at C6-7. The alternate
was surgery or pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs. Both
of these drugs were extremely pain to my stomach.
level of pain was 8-9 scale on 10 bases which is the worst. With
drugs bring it to a level 5-6 only. After 2 cycles of acupuncture
treatment (10 visits is one cycle) with Chinese herbs, my level
of pain down to 1-2 scale of 10 and my arm only has minor sensations
now. This is tolerable as compared to the discomfort experienced
before coming to see Dr. Tao.
As an additional benefit, Dr.Tao prescribed an excellent herb
for my chronic sinus condition which totally relieved my allergy
symptoms for years."

have had migraine headaches since I was a child. As an adult,
I began to also experience sinus
problems, nasal allergies, dizziness, ear congestion, tinnitus
and TMJ. By the time I first went to Dr. Tao, my dizziness was
so bad I could barely turn my head without taking a spin. I had
also been having chronic headaches every day.
was grateful that Dr. Tao is very gentle with his patients, since
I have a fear of needles. He also made special accommodations
for me because my dizziness made me feel like I was falling off
the patient table.
began to see improvement after just a few weeks of acupuncture
and herb treatments. My dizziness has been greatly reduced, and
I no longer have daily headaches. My
tinnitus has improved so much that I rarely notice it anymore.
There has also been much
improvement with my sinus problems, nasal allergies, ear congestion
and TMJ. Each
successive treatment seems to bring more relief.
Unlike many other doctors, Dr. Tao didn't focus on just one of
my conditions. He realized some of them are related and treated
the whole person."

suffered from constant headaches for six months. After my
first visit to Dr. Tao, the headaches disappeared for several
hours. After the second visit, the headaches disappeared for a
day. After roughly six visits, the headaches disappeared completely
and have not come back.
airborne allergies had progressed to the point where a simple
sniff of mold would cause me to be nauseous for days. My food
allergies had progressed to the point where a taste of mold would
cause my face to swell and my throat to nearly close off. After
just a few acupuncture treatments from Dr. Tao, my symptoms have
almost completely disappeared and my life is normal again.

daughter is a 13 year old girl with lifelong history of frequent
upper respiratory infections. In 1992 she was tested and placed
on hyposesitization injections in Houston,Texas until the fall
of 1999 became out of control. She had mild asthma and wheezing,
some conjunctivitis. Her asthma got it worse whenever had a sinus
infection which could cause her postnasal drip and some congestion.
During the worst time, she couldn't go to school and have stay
weeks at home, she had treated by allergy specialist and ENT specialist
with little or no help, and repeated the condition when the weather
gets worse or catch cold. After one of my friend highly recommended
Dr. Tao's treatment, I decided to gave Liane a try. Having a total
course of 12 visits acupuncture with herbal treatment, Liane's
condition almost totally remission. The most surprised me was

" I am a 59 year old RN with history of asthma since
age 38. At the time, I also developed bronchitis and started wheezing
even when I stopped smoking. I was treated by my family Doctor
by hyposensitization injections for one year and other allergy
specialist one by one. However, nothing really works on me which
include three times removed nasal polyps and high dosage steroid
medicine of both oral intake and nasal inhaler. I even tried acupuncture
with herbal treatment through a Lehigh Valley clinic over a year
with little help in my sinus congestion and digestion but not
help for my asthma/wheezing condition. Through my friend's highly
recommended, I decided switch to Tao's clinic to give him a try.
To my surprised, only third visit, it already much decreased my
breakthrough asthma, my sinus better, my arthritis pain in my
hand better and I now used to take Dr. Tao's prescribed herbal
mixture's tea instad of those toxin medicine, particular after
I gradually reduced the steroid medicine, I feel I become more
healthy, my energy feel better, my breathing better, I even not
use steroid inhaler any more, my face looks more brighter, everybody

miracle Doctor like Dr. Tao did- so quick, so effective."

depression and fatique. I only took six sessions of acupuncture
treatment with taking Chinese patent's herbal medicine, my allergy

reduced the dosage of my Zoloft medicine to half and I still feel
good. Thanks Dr. Tao, your help!"
Tao treated my restless leg syndrome with herbs one day before
my 4 hr plane ride which I was concerned about. This was the first
time my legs did not bother me...John. Dr. Tao was my last resort
for trying to cure my chronic cough. I have been doctoring for
this for approximately 10 years with no success. I was being seen
by my family doctor, allergist, lung doctor, throat specialist,
GERD doctor and had many unnecessary in-patient procedures, medicines,
etc. Nothing worked until Dr. Tao. Within 24 hours my cough was
suppressed to almost nothing. After 3 months of being treated
for allergies, asthma, GERD and cough with mucus, I am not coughing
or vomiting and I am off all of my medications for allergy, asthma
and coughing except for my inhalers. He has treated me with acupuncture
and herbs. My family & friends are amazed at the success...
