Fatigue and Shortness of Breath
I was turned on to the idea of acupuncture after my wife was diagnosed with
severe tension headaches. Her neurologist suggested it as an alternative to
trying some heavy medications to control her problem. She was in terrible
agony and I became desperate to find her a solution. I finally located Dr.
Liao through his website and contacted him for my wife. I was very skeptical
as I have never been exposed to eastern medicine but I was astonished at the
results. After her first visit, the tension headache was completely eliminated
and has never returned since. I could not believe what he had done; she had
been in the hospital for three days related to this pain and they had no
solution other than taking rest and running unnecessary tests which ended up
causing a whole different set of issues.
Consequently, I felt compelled to have Dr. Liao consult with me on my
health. I had been feeling sluggish, as far back as I can remember. It has
become common for me to feel tired all day long. Dr. Liao's diagnosis
suggested that my lung function was weaker than it should have been and that
this was most likely a leading factor in my "tired" feeling and that
consistently poor lung function could be a factor in developing lung disease
or cancer in the future.
We started treatment to deal with this condition approximately 4 months
ago. On my first visit, Dr. Liao measured my inhalation capacity to understand
how severe my condition was. He asked me to breathe in for as long as I could;
I could do it for 13 seconds. I asked Dr. Liao what he felt I should be at. He
told me that for my high levels of stress, I should maintain constant
inhalation for between 1 to 1.5 minutes straight to maintain healthy lungs. I
was a bit shocked but Dr. Liao assured me that we could fix this problem with
some time. He suggested that he will perform Qi Gong (energy healing) followed
up by Acupuncture.
During the Qi Gong, I noticed amazing improvements in my breathing; my
breathing became powerful and effortless. The air felt as if it was rushing
into my body. The acupuncture to follow intensified this feeling and I felt
myself breathing almost 2 or 3 times better, all within 20 minutes of
treatment. After 3 months of treatment, I am happy to report that my constant
inhalation time has increased 300% from 13 seconds to 53 seconds. I jump out
of bed most of the time now and feel much more energy throughout the day. I am
confident that within the next 2 months, I will hit the once unobtainable
target of 90 seconds. My wife and I are grateful.
Thank you very much Dr. Liao!
