耳鼻喉科 ENT (Ear Nose Throat)

一直以来，我的听力都很正常。但突然间，我无意间发现到我的听力不太好了，尤其是在嘈杂的环境。我也难以听清楚电话里的声音；日常的女声听起来改变成男声。在看专科医生后，我被诊断出一只耳朵听力下降，低频听力受到影响。我接受了几次西医专科治疗，包括口服和局部注射类固醇药物治疗，但都没有帮助。专科医生说听力很难恢复了，并建议我配戴助听器。在与我的朋友分享后，她推荐了欣中医的刘医师，并告诉我刘医师在针灸方面非常有专长。我的朋友是刘医师的病人，她称赞刘医师的技术。 开始治疗的两个月，我的听力没有什么进展，慢慢地我也接受了痛苦的事实。 然而在接下来的后两个月里，我继续跟进刘医师用中医调理改善我的整体健康状况。但刘医生除了整体健康调理外，还继续治疗我的听力。我很高兴我没有放弃中医并坚持不懈的治疗，因为突然有一天，我又能听到声音了！太神奇了......我的听力几乎恢复了80%。我能够听清楚电话，能听到我的朋友对我耳语，这是最快乐的时刻，我激动得流下了眼泪。专家还明确表示我不再需要使用助听器。
All along, I have normal hearing but suddenly, with no reason, I realized that I couldn't hear well especially in a crowded environment and having difficulty understanding a conversation over a phone. Female voices sounded like male to me. After a visit to the specialist, I was diagnosed with hearing loss on one ear and low hearing frequency was affected. I went through several treatment from the specialist, including steroid medicine and jab. The treatment was not helpful and I was advised to use a hearing aid. After sharing with my friend, she recommended Dr Liu of HTCM, who is highly skilled in acupuncture. My friend is a patient of Dr Liu and she praises Dr Liu of her skill. After seeing Dr Liu for 2 months, my hearing did not improve and slowly I accepted the painful truth. However, I continued to follow up with Dr Liu to improve my overall health for the next 2 months. But Dr Liu continued to treat my hearing in addition to overall health improvement. I am glad that I was persistent and did not give up on TCM because suddenly on one day, I could hear again! It is amazing … my hearing is almost 80% restored. My ability to hear over the phone and hearing my friend whispering to me was the happiest moment and I was moved to tears. The specialist has also advised that I no longer require to use the hearing aid.
Especially grateful for the past 4 months for Dr Liu’s patience and care. My hearing loss no longer affects my lifestyle and my recovery has regained my confidence. Thank you.

我患有听力减退已有20多年，这些年来我经常出现周期性耳鸣。 随着年龄的增长，我的耳鸣变得更为严重，尤其是在过去的两年里， 西医也束手无策。我一直戴着助听器，但效果甚微。 在过去的六个月里，我的耳鸣加重了，响亮且持续，非常的恼人。它干扰到我无法正常工作。 我的朋友推荐了刘医师——我非常害怕针并且对此持怀疑态度。 但事已至此，在别无选择的情况下，我觉得自己已经没有什么可失去的了。 经过两周的治疗（每周两次），我注意到耳鸣的频率显著减少。 经过大约2个月的治疗，我的耳鸣已经基本消失了。 我非常感谢刘医师，在我承受了多年的痛苦后，终于帮助我恢复了原有的生活质量。 谢谢你，刘医师。
I have had hearing loss for more than 20 years and have had periodic tinnitus over the course of these years. As I aged, my tinnitus has become worse especially over the last 2 years. No western doctors are able to treat it, I have been wearing a hearing aid which helped marginally. In the last 6 months, my tinnitus was so loud and constant that it was so dilapidating, I could not function or do my job properly. My friend recommended Dr Liu - I am very afraid of needles and was skeptical. But being at the end of the road with no options, I felt I had nothing to lose. After 2 weeks of treatment (twice weekly), I noticed a significant reduction of the frequency of my tinnitus. It has been about 2 months of treatment and my tinnitus is almost gone. I am so grateful to Dr Liu for finally restoring my quality of life after years of suffering. Thank you, Dr Liu.

Dad's sudden leg pain, feet and head numbness, coupled with hearing loss, made me very worried. After being introduced by a friend, he immediately went to Dr Liu. Dr Liu was very patient and friendly during the diagnosis. After taking my father’s pulse, Dr Liu's description of the cause and inference of my father's life situation surprised me. After the first acupuncture session, the numbness in the head is much reduced, and the hearing of the ear is slightly improved. Due to my father's serious problem, we seek treatment 5 times in a row, twice a week acupuncture combined with Chinese medicine to regulate physical fitness. The feeling of numbness in the head and feet was basically gone. The leg pain was greatly relieved and hearing much improved. Dad felt joyful. Dad gradually moved to weekly treatment and after 6 treatments, he has recovered. Thank you very much Dr. Liu!

2022 年 12 月，我因非常严重的眩晕入院，并呕吐不停。西医诊断为内耳感染，影响了我的听力和平衡。出院后，我突然右耳失聪，听力检查仅剩下35%的听力，伴右耳鸣，耳内不断的高音频作响。这严重影响了我的生活和工作。看诊耳鼻喉科医生，他开了类固醇作为治疗方法. 我被告之，完全恢复的几率只有30%，部分恢复的几率为30%，其余的可能没有任何改善。我才三十多岁，这无疑对我来说是一个毁灭性的消息。
In December 2022, I was admitted to the hospital for very bad vertigo which I could not stop vomiting. It was diagnosed as inner ear infection which affected my vision and balancing. After discharging from the hospital, I suffered from a sudden loss of hearing, only left with 35% of my hearing ability, and tinnitus, constant high pitch ringing sound in my right ear. Visited an ENT doctor who prescribed steroids as the treatment and I was told that the full recovery chance is only 30%, partial recovery chance is 30% and the rest may not show any improvement. Being in my mid thirties, this is devastating news.

我非常感谢刘医师，让我回复正常生活，而不再因害怕眩晕而紧张焦虑。对于那些害怕针灸的人来说， 别担心，因为刘医师非常温柔。我曾经有过可怕和不愉快的中医看诊治疗经历，但刘医师让我对中医针灸完全改观。她非常熟练，并清楚知道患者在什么情况下需要何种治疗。在认识刘医师之前，我的状态很糟糕，感恩我现在好多了。 我的丈夫见证了我的改善，也决定让刘医师为他严重的大肠易激综合征（IBS）做针灸治疗。他现在也好多了，我们都非常感谢刘医师的帮助。
I have been having very severe attacks of vertigo since 2018. I had seen a few doctors and ENTs. I did all sorts of testing, but no solution or conclusion was found. Most of the time, I was told that it is because of the inner ear imbalance. Every time I have a vertigo attack, the feeling is really so awful and bad because your whole world is spinning and there is nothing you can do. I will be totally wasted for a few days or up to a week. I will be almost bedridden or vomiting all the time. I tried the BPPV Epley manoeuvre, taken different types of medication but the spinning just won't go away. It's like I am seasick on a boat and the boat just won't stop swaying and spinning. As time goes by, these severe attacks became more frequent. They can be as frequent as once a month. I reached a point that I was so stressed up and so scared of lying down or turning my head too fast for fear that the vertigo might strike again anytime. My blood pressure was very high because I was also very stressed up as these vertigo attacks were also affecting my work.
My colleague then introduced me to Dr Liu in 2019. She did her acupuncture with her and she told me that she was good so I decided to give it a try. The first time I tried her acupuncture treatment, my whole head felt so cleared and good. Even my eyesight seems to be better and clearer. I have been seeing her faithfully and my condition is a lot better now compared to last time. I still do get vertigo attacks now and then but now the frequency has reduced to about once a year (usually it strikes when I get very stressed up over work and also because of my bad lifestyle of sleeping late and very little). And when the vertigo strikes, the severity is a lot milder and I can still be walking around and eating my meals. I don't vomit anymore, thank goodness.
I am so grateful to Dr Liu that now I can lead a normal life instead of being fearful all the time. For those who are afraid of needles, don't worry as she is very gentle. I had other bad experiences with other Chinese physicians who gave me scary experiences but not Dr Liu. She is very skilful and she knows what is the best treatment for you at any one time. I am a very problematic patient because I lead a really unhealthy lifestyle. I was in a really bad shape before I met Dr Liu but now, I am really so much better and I am very thankful. My husband saw my improvement and decided to try acupuncture by Dr Liu as he has very bad IBS problem. He is a lot better now and we are very appreciative of all the help we got from Dr Liu.
For anyone who has been seeing western doctors for years and is still not getting better, I will strongly recommend to you to try acupuncture with Dr Liu. It really works and you will be amazed with the results.
