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."
wanted to thank you for helping me get my life back. For three
years, I had struggled with anxiety after the birth of my first
daughter. However, this anxiety multiplied after the birth of
my second daughter and I was experienced deeply panic attacks.
I tried all the traditional options from my family doctor but
then took my life into my own hands and found you---my lifesaver.
You listened and really understood what I wanted out of your services.
I've only been seeing you for a few months, but in this short
time, everyone in my family has noticed a positive difference.
I was able to stop taking anti-depressants my doctor had me on
and was able to take your herbal medicines to get better results.
I am happy to say I am free of panic attack now. In a few months,
it has made me a happier, healthier person. Not to mention all
the help you have given me. In other ailments-knee pain, colds,
allergies-you cured then all in such short time. Thank you!"
"Hi Dr. Tao,
came to you for help as I suffer from Anemia and this in conjunction
with a heavy menstruation had left me completely exhausted and
unable to get out of bed once a month.
appreciated the time you spent to completely understand all
the symptoms I was experiencing and the detailed questions you
asked before you suggested a treatment.
four months, you were able to raise my core body temperature,
return my pulse to a normal level, increase my energy, and reduce
my heavy menstruation; until you could treat my iron deficiency
and help me to maintain a normal menstrual cycle.

years of taking iron pills from my regular family doctor did

wish you continued health and success personally and professionally.
Thank you Dr. Tao."

passenger side to the red light which fall on my car. I was

weeks which was not helpful. Then I referred by my family Doctor
again to see a pain specialist who ordered an MRI, which revealed
a fracture at the 9th thoracic veterbra. I was given two epidural
injections and told that I would have to live with this pain.
In addition this, I also have pain in my right side of my back

"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

a flare up of sarcoidosis in late fall 1998 cusing lung problems
and subsequently a heavy prescription of prednizone, it was the
acupuncture and herbs which cured my back pain and sciatica problems
and low energy caused by prednizone. Then to make bad year worse,
I contracted either rocky mountain spotted fever or ehrlichia
in May 1999. This eventually led to bell palsy on the right side
of my face. Having already been familiar with the healing power
of the acupuncture and herbs, I came to you as soon as I was physically
well enough to endure trip(9 days after the onset of bells palsy).
I had been told by my other doctors that hopefully the bells palsey
would go away in 3-5 months. To the amazement of the doctors,
after 6 treatments and 3 weeks from the onset, I was about 95-98%
better. Thanks again for your help."

I I developed a flextion-extension injury and also had head injury
from the second accident. I have the pain in my right side of
skull and the occipital region and burning pain in the arms and
thigh which is resolved with acupuncture. I tried different medication
before with either poor relief or with the gastro-intestinal side
effects. Since I tried acupuncture and Chinese herbs, I could
reduce my headache, arm and leg pain and decreased the pain like
"Brain Fog" since injury. Due to the multiple reactions or the
ineffectiveness of traditional medications, I recommended the
patients with pain from auto accidents history to have people
like Dr. Tao's speciality must give you great help."

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
what I know all feel me different. I am very pleased to find a
miracle Doctor like Dr. Tao did- so quick, so effective."
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...
