15 years I had the Mystery Ailment (while in my 20's & 30's).
There was excessive fatigue & brain fog, doctors were baffled
& my finances nearly depleted.
Finally I chanced upon "heat depuration" which worked
wonders -- though I had to repeat it periodically for the next
5 years to get an even keel.
It was determined that solvent exposure plus prescription drugs
caused this mysterious ailment - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
The body was overloaded with chemical garbage.
That's my background- worked for a gas station of a petroleum
So after sick with bronchitis & severe hypertension &
harsh side effects from prescription drugs, I came to your center
for holistic support. It seemed to me that herbs with a long history
of safe use would be preferable to recently patented & pricey
pharmaceutical drugs. Traditional Chinese herbal medicine has
endured for centuries & the perspective, thinking & approach
are fundamentally different from the mainstream paradigm.
My hypertension was diagnosed as stage 2 & I resigned myself
to taking synthetic drugs for the rest of my life. I then began
your acupuncture & herbs. For the first half of last year,
I took BP herbal pills 2 or 3 times a day. Since then I've been
completely off the stuff-chemical drug medicine. (My BP right
now incidentally is 117/82 & I've been lax with my exercise
lately). I appreciate that.
Thanks also for the energy fixes following the illness & after
In any case, you've provided me also an interesting experience:
fine tuning the body.
Mainstream care conversely seems best suited to dire emergencies
Beyond that, without a prescription pad they'd be 0% effective.
Also, even with insurance, the co-pays for consultation &
drugs are not
So Thank you for your patience, teaching & help."
am a 30 year old biochemist had had tinnitus since October,
1999. I had a test, evaluated by an hearing specialist, found
I had an abnormal audiogram which showed a decrease in my ability
to detect higher frequencies. In addition, I had some difficulty
reading and visual problems which were not helped by doing eye
exercises. After I have five acupuncture treatments for my tinnitus
and even the first symptom, began to see a reduction in my symptom.
I feel pretty much obliged to Dr. Tao for his help me to get rid
of my tinnitus and concentration which I could not get help from
the traditional medicine. I do have more respect for the anchient
chinese medicine which could cure my problem like a miracle."
