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."
a 34 year old female who, after numerous tests, was diagnosed
with an untriggered anxiety disorder. The fact that it was untriggered
created even more unrest. I never knew when I was going to have
an episode. The worst part was the feeling of dizziness and the
thought of passing out without warning. This disorder crippled
me. I couldn't drive, work, or leave my house. My husband got
in contact with Dr. Tao and explained my problem. Dr. Tao made
an appointment for me that same day and spent two hours talking
with me so he could really understand what I was going through.
After one treatment I started to feel better. Dr. Tao treated
each of my symptoms to help me feel better as a whole. I was able
to reduce the dosage of my medication and get back to a normal
life in just a few weeks. I feel more like myself and I am doing
the things I enjoy again."
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."

four years. I had a severe vertigo one year ago and prior to that

I have a sister in Florida with
similiar condition. I was treated by an ENT specialist with Antivert
as needed up to three times a day, Allegra once a day and Hydrochlorothiazide
once a day. They helped and was worse in terms of vertigo off
of them. The worst time when I was driving in the highway, have
to be stopped in the roadside for an hour and tolerated the big
truck passing by to be able to drive back home later. Due to the
effect of the medication is not good as in the beginning also
plus the concerns of the side effects of the medication. I decided
to find a alternative treatment. Through the website of Tao's
Acupuncture, I decided to give Dr. Tao a try. He suggested stop
all the medicine from what I taken, used hispatent's Chinese herbal
medicine begins with 3 times a week for acupuncture
treatment then gradually down to once a week. For the past month,
my vertigo with ear pressure and dizziness already completely
gone, just left some ear ringing which is not bothered me as before.
I believe from the time going, my tinnitus shall also could finally
get rid of it. Thank you, Dr.Tao!"
am a 70 year old female who suffered from arthritis and spurs
in my neck for several years. The pain intensified after suffering
whiplash from a car accident. I have visited chiropractors, orthopedic
surgeons, physical therapists, general practitioners, neurologists,
ENT specialists, and also have had 3 MRI's, and I was told one
of my choices was surgery. I went to Dr. Tao and had relief from
pain and dizziness after my first treatment."
chronic dizziness has been unbearable for the past 18 months and
wondered if I would ever find relief. Within only three treatments,
I feel like myself and I'm almost 100% cured!"
-Edward J. Alex
1988 I have experienced tinnitus and occasional pain in my left
ear. I was sent to an ENT doctor for an MRI, and no cure was found.
In 1992 I began experiencing dizziness and blurred vision. I saw
another ENT doctor and a neurologist. Nothing was found and my
tinnitus increased intensely making life uncomfortable. After
a second visit I noticed a 50% reduction and the pain in my ear
had eased. After the 5th treatment it had lessened, at times up
to 80%. My other problems, like menopausal symptoms, stomach ailments
and gallbladder pain also improved by the treatment thanks to
Dr. Tao for helping me regain my heath."
