I have been going through infertility treatments and procedures for 3 years. After 3 previous unsuccessful attempts at Invitro fertilization, I came to see Dr. Tong. I was planning my fourth and final attempt to get pregnant. I believe Dr. tong’s treatments, injections, and acupuncture, as well as wearing the magnets, helped to prepare my body for pregnancy. The increased circulation and proper blood flow to my uterus and other organs helped these embryos to implant when it had always failed in the past. I am 8 weeks pregnant with twins and very grateful!
I would like to thank Dr. Tong very much for treating my wife for her chronic back pain due to her dysmenorrhea and PMS, irregular periods, and infertility.
My wife had been suffering with dysmenorrhea, PMS, and irregular periods for over 10 years; in fact, she does not believe that she had ever had a regular cycle. Being a physician myself, I recommended that she start oral contraceptives to regulate her periods. Her Ob-Gyn physician agreed with this course of treatment after his evaluation. The oral contraceptives did regulate her cycles but did nothing for the dysmenorrhea/back pain that would last for 10-14 days. In addition, she started to gain weight while on the pill. My wife stopped taking them when we decided to have children. Well, after approximately a year and a half without any success, we felt that we may need to see a fertility specialist at Hoag Hospital that was highly recommended by one of my colleagues. At the same time my wife started Dr. Tong’s acupuncture and regional nerve block treatments for her lower back pain and dysmenorrhea. She mentioned to him our problems with infertility and I was quite surprised when he stated that he could also regulate her cycles, cure her dysmenorrhea, and, in turn, fix our problem with infertility.
I must admit that I was somewhat skeptical of Dr. Tong’s claims. My training in medicine gave me no reason to believe that this type of treatment would do anything other than provide a placebo effect. I did believe that acupuncture could offer pain relief and there are plenty of scientific papers to back this up. How could acupuncture and herbal concoctions affect an individual on a neuro-endocrine level? Since we had nothing to lose, we held off on seeing the fertility specialist and decided to let Dr. Tong start his treatment.
After 2 months of treatment, my wife’s periods were less painful and subsequently became regular over the ensuing months. Her chronic back pain was almost completely eradicated after a few acupuncture treatments. By the 6th month of treatment, her problems with back pain, PMS, dysmenorrhea, and irregular periods were entirely resolved. However, she was still not pregnant! I was tired of waiting and made an appointment to see the fertility specialist at the end of that month. As you can probably guess, we found out she was pregnant 1 week before her scheduled appointment with the specialist. Dr. Tong’s treatment course was both effective and cost-effective. An infertility work-up and treatment can run into thousands of dollars.
I have recommended Dr. Tong to many of my colleagues, friends, and family members for treatment of their chronic conditions. Since I have started working for an HMO, I have recommended that his services be provided to our patients on a referral basis. I believe that his therapies can be an asset to our patients.

MORNING SICKNESS DUE TO PREGNANCY
During my second pregnancy, I had severe hyperemesis (morning sickness). During the two months from week 7-15, I lost 15 pounds. I was hospitalized nine times in those 8 weeks for intravenous hydration. I took Compazine, Thorazine, Tigan, and Bendectin in an attempt to control the vomiting and nothing worked. Finally, my obstetrician suggested acupuncture.
I am a general surgeon, comfortable with Western medicine, unfamiliar with acupuncture, and I greeted the suggestion with the skepticism I felt it deserved. However, compared with the possibility of hyperalimentation (prolonged intravenous feeding), I felt there was nothing to lose, and Dr. Tong felt that acupuncture could help, without risk to the pregnancy.
I first saw Dr. Tong during my 15th week. After my first acupuncture treatment, I was able to eat solid food. I lost no further weight, and I needed no further intravenous treatment. However, I still needed Compazine and Bendectin, and I still could not tolerate liquids. I had my second acupuncture treatment at 17 1/2 weeks. Following this, I was able to tolerate liquids, began to re-gain the weight I had lost, and remained off all drugs, except Bendectin.
Both of my responses to acupuncture occurred within 12-24 hours of the treatment, and I remain convinced that acupuncture dramatically altered the course of the hyperemesis. Acupuncture, I believe, reduced my hospitalizations, my need for intravenous hydration, and eliminated the potential need for hyperal, with its attendant risks. And I remain convinced that in selected patients, acupuncture is a viable and valuable complement to Western medicine.

DEPRESSION, CHRONIC PAIN, IRREGULAR MENSTRUATION, ORAL HERPES
I could sit down and write a book on what Dr. Tong has done for me. My life has gotten back to a living lifestyle instead of an everyday painful one. I was literally thinking about calling Dr. Kevorkian to help me be pain free by ending my life. I cry when I hear Dr. Kevorkian has ended another life because of chronic pain. I was in chronic pain and I’m still alive, because of Dr. Tong. I was always looking for a way to be out of pain but could never
find the right method. I found the right method when I saw Dr. Tong on cable. I thought to myself what do I have to lose. Just the day before I heard of Dr. Tong, I was going to drive off the bridge in my 4 runner because I was in so much pain. That’s what I have to lose is my life.
You couldn’t ask for a better lifestyle then mine, but I was always in chronic pain. When I went to see Dr. Tong for the first time he asked for a brief history but I believe that was only for insurance purposes because when he started doing his treatments, I was amazed how exact he knew what was wrong with me. Dr. Tong read me like a book. I couldn’t believe he was telling me exactly all the different things I was doing wrong to harm myself.
Simple things that everyone knows about but doesn’t want to stop. Smoking, Drinking, and mostly eating wrong. Dr. Tong helped me through all the pain of when I wanted to stop all these bad habits. But you don’t realize these everyday things causes so much pain. My periods were a mess, they were so erratic. One month my period would be 17 days since my last period and then I would have a period 2 months later. Dr. Tong regulated my periods and now I’m on schedule. I think the most amazing, terrific and stupendous thing Dr.
Tong did for me was immediately cure me of my herpes or cold sores in my mouth. I would suffer for weeks. Believe this or not but with one treatment by Dr. Tong he took care and cured and completely rid one cold sore at a time in seconds and yes I just wrote seconds. I also believe that he can cure genital herpes in seconds with the same treatment. I call Dr. Tong “Dr. feelgood” because of just what that sounds like, Dr. Tong makes you feel good. My life is now back on track again because of what Dr. Tong has taught me. He taught me how to feel good. I thought I knew everything but he analyzes your specific body and tells you what to do to feel good and move on with your life in a healthy, happy, loving, satisfying lifestyle.
I wish I could give Dr. Tong an Oscar for his life work, but he is no actor, he is real and here to take care of anyone that chooses to go see him.
I chose to go see Dr. Tong when my arm was so bad that I couldn’t move it anymore. I went to three doctors to check out my problem the third doctor said he could do exploratory surgery because he really didn’t know what was wrong and he thought the first two diagnosis were wrong. That made me think there was someone else that was the root to my shoulder pain. When I initially went to see Dr. Tong with my shoulder pain he told me what the root of my problem was and it wasn’t that I had stretched the ball joint out in my shoulder. I am very grateful to this day to Dr. Tong because I didn’t go through the unnecessary surgery for my shoulder. Basically the cause of my pain was my everyday health habits that were bad, very bad. If you do chose to go see Dr. Tong and listen and do everything he tells you to do you can be cured like me and free of everyday illness.
PAIN RELIEF DESPITE PREGNANCY
Due to a work injury I was not able to move my neck or lift my left arm. And it was causing me to have very painful headaches. My doctor was not able to prescribe any medication because of my pregnancy. I decided to try Dr. Tong’s treatments, even though I was terrified at first. After a couple of treatments I was able to turn my neck and lift my arm with no problem. Three weeks later I was completely recovered and able to return to work.
DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, PMS
After a lifetime of depression, anxiety, weight battles, phobias and generally not feeling well at anytime, you saved me. You were my “last chance Doctor”. I had seen hundreds of doctors through out the years. Western doctors. The best they could do for me (that is if they even listened to me) was to drug me out and hope I would not expire while under their care. They usually told me I was “over reacting” or I was too young to be experiencing these problems. When I finally heard about you I liked that you were trained in Western medicine but combined that knowledge with a very special technique, Neuro-Bioenergetics.
At my first appointment with you I was skeptical, had a huge altitude and wondered why I was wasting my time with another doctor. Little did I know I would meet the Doctor who would change (save?) my life.
You came in and introduced yourself, looked into my race, asked to see my tongue and listened to everything I had to say. Not only Listened, but you heard me, what I was saying and agreed with me! You asked questions that no other doctor had bothered to ask and then listened to my answers. You never were condescending You explained to me why your methods worked and why. It made so much sense to me and was so simple (for lack of another word!) that I still thought that this could not work. Because if it was that great wouldn’t every doctor be using it? I was wrong again! By the third ‘injection’ such a wonderful sense of well being and happiness came over me that I did not even know what the feeling was until later that night when I was telling my husband about it.
I have been taking anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication for over 10 years. I was always told (that is when anyone finally took the second to tell me) I had a chemical imbalance that could only be ‘helped’ by putting these chemicals into my body. You explained to me that you could right that imbalance and get me off the drugs. I did not believe you. You were right once again. I have been drug free for almost 8 weeks. Without any terrible withdrawal symptoms that I had been warned that I would experience.
As my treatment progressed we would talk and you wanted to know about my life so you could treat me better. There never has been a doctor that has wanted to know anything about me except how I was paying for the appointment. Sad, but true.
In closing I would like to add that I am off all medication, I am sleeping all night, I do nor awake in the morning with the feeling of impending doom or with my teeth and toes painfully clenched, the PMS is under control, I have more flexibility, movement without pain (due to a series of auto accidents) I no longer have to worry about my weight because I have stabilized at a size 6, our sex life was always great now it is OUTSTANDING! and after 42 years I finally can say I feel normal. I am amazed! Thank you Dr. Tong for showing me life can be good.
I also want to add that Dr. Qi’s acupuncture, concern, care and herbal remedies are working wonders as are the natural supplements you have given me. Your staff could not be more helpful and caring I am a difficult person so I thank all who have put up with me. There is so much more I could say but I will leave that for another time. I tend to ramble about things I am excited about and that work. I just want to tell everyone with any kind of problem please don’t make Dr. Tong your ‘last resort’ Doctor. He can and will help.
I have been coming to you off and on since 1991 and each and every time you have been able to reduce my pain and cure my problem.
In 1991, I came to you after seeing a chiropractor for three months for a pinched sciatic nerve. I was going three times a week for electric stimulation and adjustments, neither of which helped. My husband finally suggested that I see you because you had done so much to relieve his Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. After just three visits, I was able to stand up straight, and my pain was greatly reduced. It took another seven visits before the pain was all gone, and I was able to fulfill my dream to travel across the US on a motorcycle with my husband.
In 1993, I returned to you with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This time I did not even bother to go see a neurologist. The repetitive motion as a manicurist, along with being very depressed about my job, contributed to the problem. Your treatments helped reduce my pain and surprisingly also lifted my depression. It took four visits before the numbness and shooting pains began to rescind. After that it was a matter of several visits and one month off work before I had full control and no more pain. What was so great was that I did not need surgery or drugs to deal with this problem.
In January of 1995, I was in “full blown” menopause. I had hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, and bouts of the blues. I was irritable, had memory loss, sleeplessness, and vaginal dryness. The skin on my face became dry and, at the age of 42, I had pimples and a facial rash. My gynecologist put me on estrogen and progesterone. I decided to go see you. You said that the hormones were not good for me because they cause the female organs to shrivel up and die. For the first month I took the hormones while being treated by you. I was afraid to go off them because of the relief they had given me. You reminded me of all the good you had done for me and that I had to trust you. So in the second month, I terminated the hormones. I was pleased that none of my symptoms had returned and my menstrual cycle had begun again. The third month I further reduced your treatments. Still, none of my symptoms have returned and I am still menstruating on my own. I am now in my fourth month and down to one treatment a week. I feel great and I am very pleased that I am in control of my body. I did go back for a three month review with my gynecologist and told him what had been happening. You can believe his response.
OVARIAN TUMOR, MESENTERIC CYST
I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to the magnetic shoe inserts. Several times during the past few months, I have driven from San Francisco to Los Angeles, a drive of approximately 475 miles. Before I got the magnetic insoles, I used to arrive at my destination in an exhausted state. On my last trip, with the magnetic insoles, I drove almost nonstop, and had lots of energy when I arrived home.
After getting the inserts, I decided to try the magnetic strips. Now, I wouldn’t be without them. I’m sure they have contributed heavily to my tumor’s shrinking. Incidentally, the other day, I was talking with someone who had a back ache, so I loaned her my strip. In 45 minutes, her back pain was gone. She is now considering not only buying the products, but becoming a distributor.
