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.
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
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!
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!"
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!"
