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,
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."

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!"
am a 33 year old man with cerebral palsy since early childhood
with allergies since age 28. My allergy symptoms indluce sneezing,
rhinorrhea, sinus headaches, cough and eustachian tube congestion
which sometimes could cause my earache and ear pressure increased.
I was unable to tolerate allergy injections, even in low dose
could cause me coughing in an hour later. I am going for acupuncture
treatment for my vertigo, and one of the treatment could last
up to 10 days and another for 30 days, the other symptom of my
coughing, asthma, wheezing and sinus congestion and headache,
depression also greatly improved and under a good control. The
medication to use for inhaled steroid also reduced. I feel I am
getting more healthy and will follow up my additional regular
visits to control my complex symptom.Thank you, Dr. Tao!"
