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 sinus blockage.

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,
-Glen Fulton"

RE: Glen Fulton
I 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.

My impression today is
1. Benign positional vertigo is resolved.
2. History of chronic sinusitis, which is stable at this point and we are forgoing any surgical intervention unless there is continued exacerbation of symptoms.

P.S.: 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."

"I'm 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."

"I 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.

I 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.

I 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."

"I am a 55 year old man with a history of Meniere's disease for four years. I had a severe vertigo one year ago and prior to that has tinnitus and loss of hearing. A CAT scan was reportedly negtive. 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!"

"I 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."

"My 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

"Since 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."
