Anxiety & Depression

" I was having problems with severe insomnia/anxiety/depression/stress for months before my first appointment with Dr. Tao. It was so severe that my life felt like it was falling apart. I thought I may loose my job, my house, everything. I tried everything from natural sleeping aides, supplements to increase my serotonin levels, sleep hypnotism CD's, mild prescriptions for anxiety, exercise. I had multiple visits to the doctor’s office. I had multiple sessions with a psychologist for the first time in my life.
Most of these things helped, but not enough. I did some research on insomnia and acupuncture. I came across Dr Tao's website and immediately made an appointment due to all the great success stories I read on his website from many local residents.
I am happy to say that after a few visits to Dr Tao I started sleeping better and feeling more relaxed. The acupuncture sessions are very relaxing and the herbs Dr Tao provided appeared to help me more than other herbs I found on my own. I am now on my maintenance sessions which are only once a month and still doing very well. I believe I may only need 2-3 more sessions.
There is no way for me to be 100% positive if Dr. Tao was the only reason I've improved or if life was just heading in the right direction, but I feel Dr. Tao contributed to my success. I'm very happy I discovered him.
I would also like to note that his office is clean and the service is very friendly.

"I have battled Hashimoto's Thyroiditis-Hypothyroidism and adrenal insufficiency for years. I have seen two Endocrinologists, an MD of Internal Medicine, and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine - all of whom have
prescribed various doses and combinations of Synthroid, Levoxyl, Westhroid, Armour Thyroid, Cytomel, and Cortef. I felt no better taking these prescriptions and actually became physically over-stimulated by them while
my blood work (TSH, T3, T4 and Cortisol levels) continued to show no improvement from their initial below normal levels. Needless to say, I felt exhausted and sick all of the time.

I started seeing Dr. Tao in February.
He focused on my symptoms and using acupuncture and his wonderful herbs, my thyroid and cortisol levels are now testing normal. This was accomplished
in 3 ? months - amazing! I have much more energy and clarity of thought.

Along the way, Dr. Tao also recognized and addressed my Anxiety Disorder and his treatments have diminished this problem too. I haven't felt this calm nor slept this well in decades. Thank you to Dr. Tao for giving me my life
back, you are the best!

"I 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!"

"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 am a 39 year old man with the history of allergy, depression and fatique. I only took six sessions of acupuncture treatment with taking Chinese patent's herbal medicine, my allergy and fatique improved and my depression also much reduced. I also reduced the dosage of my Zoloft medicine to half and I still feel good. Thanks Dr. Tao, your help!"
