Dear Dr. Tam

Dear Dr. Tam
Hope all is well with you and your family. My daughter and I had the privilege to visit you several times at your home in Charlotte for several of her treatments. I cannot begin to tell you how much this helped, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. My faith in you thru the work of the Lord is beyond words. As we speak, we are in a desperate situation to be able to visit you again for more treatments for her allergies. The treatments you did for my daughter in the past was for her acne. I have been told you are not in Charlotte. I beg and pray (please) to inform us how soon will my daughter be able to see you again. You are a gift from the Lord above for all medical cures and I respectfully say that. I also would like to know what products do you Dr. Tam suggest she should be taking immediately. I read the allergy capsules and it gears toward blood diseases more so than anything. Is there a better combination you suggest of your products for her? The reason I am concern about the blood issues is because she cannot take anything that will interrupt with her menstrual. To promote menstrual is OK but to interrupt her menstrual that is not good for her because of other issues. So as you can see I was a bit concern with the Allergy Capsules. Any suggestions? We are REALLY desperate with her allergies. We are praying for you and your patients and praying to be able to be treated from you very soon. The best of luck and prayers to you Dr. Tam and your staff. Looking forward to your response. May the Lord be with you always.

Most sincerely,

You are my God

Hi Tam,

I hope you are doing well. I hope you remember us - two "hindu" brothers came and visited you on 07/29/09. I came for allergies and you had treated me for 3 sittings with 2 types of medications. One type is capsules and another one is red liquid medicine. You suggested me to use for 10 days. I had used for 10 days and there is some more medicine still there- should I finish the whole medication?
I need your suggestion on the below. Now I am feeling better. Almost no allergies. You are my God. After 22 years I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel. However, now a days some times I feel little flum in the back of my throat (nose is fine). What should I do to get rid of that flum? I was worried because that’s how(with flum in the back of my throat) my allergies started 22 years ago.
I appreciate your suggestion on this email. Btw, I was trying to reach you for the past few weeks (calling you before 7 am) but no answer though.

Thanks, Hari

Dr. Tam,

You were highly recommended by one of your patients. I suffer from severe allergies and have tried everything from Allegra to Singular to Flonase. I even went to a allergy specialist at UPenn. They conducted some tests on me and put me on allergy shot treatment for over nearly 2 yrs with very little change or improvement. I am still taking allegra at this time, which provides temporary relief but I am hoping for some permanent solution to my allergy problem. It seems that I am allergy to dust mites, rag weeds, pullen, etc. It’s so bad at times that it wakes me up in the middle of the night. Your help would be grately appreciated. I am in DC but willing to make the travel down if there is a cure for my allergies. Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you so much.

My mother and I came with three family friends to see if you could help us with our medical problems. All of us noticed significant improvement after the first day.

Dr. Tam is A God Sent for Natural Healing. All Skepticism Gone!

January 18, 2008

Dr. Tam is a God sent for natural healing. He cured my son food allergies on what dozens of other medical doctors could not do for my son in 2 ½ years. He cured my wife of her food allergies and he cured me of my dust/seasonal and motion sickness. It was an incredible experience to witness his healing treatment.

I could write details about the miracle cures that he did for us but there are already many witnesses in these pages from his great works so I would like to focus more on my advice for the protective parents.

At first, I was there trying to hold my son down for the acupuncture treatment but Dr. Tam couldn’t do the treatment because I can’t keep my son steady. My son would fight with everything he can to move so I ended up putting more force to hold him down. Bless Dr. Tam’s heart for he saw that I could end up hurting my son so he called in his wife, Co Tam to take over and asked me to leave the room because by me being there will only encourage my son to resist more. The first thing that went through my mind was “I’m not leaving my crying son with a stranger”. I got used to the typical doctors’ way of keeping my son steady by calling in more nurses to help me hold him down. That way, I am still there in the same room with my son and know exactly what is being done to my son. But since Dr Tam and Co Ha assured me of my son safety and I know that I’ll be right outside the room and can run in anytime to check on him, I reservedly agreed. It was no doubt mentally challenging for my wife and I to sit in the waiting room and not be able to see what is going on with our son, especially when we can hear our son crying inside the treatment room. You know how the parent’s instinct is when it comes to wanting to be there to protect your child. Well, we are thankful that we trusted in Dr. Tam and Co Ha because after a while, they were able to keep our son still for treatment. Co Ha did something that my wife, medical staff and myself could never do, she single handedly kept our child steady. And believe me, we have a lot of experience trying to hold/calm him down from all the doctors, emergency rooms and hospital visits. I asked myself “How in the world did she do it all by herself?”. It turned out Co Ha had special training and has a lot of experience in the gentle way of caring and persuading kids to stay still for these kinds of situations. And after a few more visits, not only my son did not cry, he even voluntarily gave Co Ha a kiss before and after treatment. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you Dr. Tam and Co Ha for taking great care of our son, making his treatment more bearable and curing all of us of our allergies.  Therefore, my advice to all those protective parents out there like us, the best way for you to help your child is to leave the treatment room and wait in the waiting area. Dr. Tam and Co Ha are trained and experienced in caring for your child. They can do a much better job in calming your child than you because they are trained and experience in these situations. Trust their judgment and your child will thank you later.

God bless,

Miracle works

Dear Dr. Tam,

I was in your office on 9/19 and 9/20/ 2007 among a group of 10 people from Virginia. I want to thank you for the best sleeping night that I haven’t had for a long time. I have been suffering allergy for over 20 years. I’ve seen many doctors and spent a great deal of money to battle this illness over the years, but it didn’t work. I only received treatments from you in two days and last night was the greatest sleeping night that I ever had. I would like to thank you for your gifted skills, and the miracle works that you have done for me and many others.

Fresh Air in a Hot Summer

August 13th, 2007

Hello Masters Tam and  Ha

We are doing great. My sinuses and allergies are the best in many years.

We have just returned to Ontario, Canada after a week staying Charlotte. The temperature here is only 85˚F but a patient of mine told me this morning that it was too hot for him. I remember feeling quite well in Charlotte and wonder how we stood it last week when the weather were above 100˚F every day. Could it have been those accupuncture needles that you used on us changed our perception? Or was it because of the music you played, the songs that Co Ha sang that cooled off the days?

Coming from a Family Medicine background, I’ve got to say that your home-office was quite an experience to me. Not because it was busy but more because of the free interactions between the patients, the voices of children playing(and crying ;-) ), the stories and the prayers we heard,  and the jokes and the laughters. At times it’s feel like there’s too much fun in this office to be a medical office. But I had seen people got treated and healed, in simple, inexpensive but effective ways. I also had seen the hope that you brought to the community for curative treatment of conditions that are often termed "chronic" in Western medicine. 

Thank you for open your home, your heart and and being such a gift to us all.  And thank you for rekindle the desire in my heart to explore Oriental Medicine. We’ve found the freshness amidst a hot Summer week in Charlotte.

Master Tam and Ha 6/25/2007

Thank you so much for helping me break my habit of smoking. I have tried to quit so many times but unsuccessful.  After just one treatment of acupuncture, I no longer have any craving, want, need or feel for a smoke at all. Its amazing how acupuncture can cure my addiction of nearly 12 years. Now I don't even want a single puff, its like I never smoke before.  

I thank you Master Ha for making me feel so welcome and well taken care of.  I thank you Master Tam for curing my allergy and smoking habit; for curing my wife's allergy and bladder problem; for curing my mom's severe allergy and migraine; and my dad's severe food allergy problem; and my two brother's allergy and sinus problem; and so many of my friends with other illness.       

Our entire family gives you our deepest gratitude. Thank you Master Tam and Ha for devoting your life to help people overcome their illness.

pain, Pain, PAIN - GO AWAY

Ac.u.puncture (ak’yoo punk’char) the ancient practice, esp. as carried on by the Chinese, of piercing parts of the body with needles in seeking to treat disease or relieve pain (definition found in Webster’s dictionary). Do you wonder why anyone in their right mind would want someone to “bring on the needles”?

A number of years ago, I took a bad fall in a local store, landing on my right hand and buttocks. I had many x-rays taken, saw many doctors and was prescribed pain pills. Because I did not break any bones, the doctors wondered why I continued to complain of pain. I was almost convinced that “it was all in my head” and I knew better because the pain was so intense and constant. I was finally diagnosed as having sustained soft tissue damage in the right shoulder similar to what some athletes suffer. Soft tissue damage does not heal quickly nor does it regenerate itself readily. I was told to get use to living with chronic pain.

From childhood I was familiar with alternative medicine. As children we went to osteopaths and chiropractors rather than depending on traditional doctors and drugs. I am also familiar with and use biofeedback. Today too many doctors prescribe drugs as an easy solution to a medical problem. People can become addicted to prescribed medication so easily. When told I would have to get use to living with pain, I began once again going to a local chiropractor. These treatments would help, but only for a short while. It would be necessary to continue these manipulations for a long time and this it was becoming very expensive and time consuming.

Having a very rare breed dog (Chinese Foo or Choo), I asked everyone who looked as though they had come from anywhere near where this breed originated, whether they knew anything about the breed and could they help find an appropriate Chinese name for him (I call him Kobe Xiao Xiong). And so it was that one day, while working part-time in a local store, I had the opportunity to meet a unique and very special man - Master Tam. Through him I became involved in VOVINAM.

It was not until recently that I got to know Master Tam even better and we have become like family. I discovered that he has been an acupuncturist for many decades and was very highly respected in Viet Nam for his knowledge before he came to America. When he volunteered to help me control the chronic pain with acupuncture, my immediate response was, “Sure, I will give it a try”. It is not easy to become completely comfortable with the idea of allowing someone to stick pins in your body. We usually try to avoid needles, don’t we? Do you ever try walking on nails, tacks or even sharp stones barefooted just to see how it feels? I certainly don’t!

It is well documented that many of our best medical treatments and cures come from the ancient arts of the use of herbs and procedures developed centuries ago in China and the Far East. Not only does Master Tam believe strongly in the use of acupuncture and its medical benefits, but as a pharmacist he is very familiar with herbs and the benefits gotten from ordinary plants you can buy cheaply in the grocery store. For example, the daily use of parsley can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure. Of course, most doctors are not going to tell you that.

As I lay on the bed while Master placed the needles in my body, he explained why he placed each one where he did. The first needle to be inserted was in the face near the ear to deaden the pain of the insertion of needles in other areas of they body. The needles are inserted deeper or not so deeply depending on what illness is being treated. They are twisted to the left for treatment of the illness and twisted to the right when the desired benefit is to give you a better sense of well-being.

One can use only a few for a very specific illness, or many. Today Master Tam used 17 needles which were used in combination for the relief from pain and healing in both my right knee and in my right shoulder. Others were used for weight loss. When the needles are placed for weight loss, three systems are influenced: 1) the kidneys - to increase the release of more toxins, 2) thedigestive system - to control the appetite and, 3) the nervous system - to reduce depression and stimulate more physical activity. His treatment for me is not complete without my turning “up-side-down” (over). Needles are then placed and turned in specific locations to relate to those placed earlier on the front side of my body.

As I lay on the bed I try to relax and not feel the pain of the needles. To help me relax in my mind I walk along a sea shore, hear the birds and the waves rushing against the beach. (OUCH! that hurts) With the sound of running water in the kitchen I am able to relax enough so that the pain of the needles nearly disappears and I allow my body to be stimulated to heal itself.

There are more than 360 main pressure points in one’s body!! The needles cannot be placed randomly, they must be placed very carefully and in the exactly correct spot to do any good. A practitioner of this ancient way of healing knows by a light touch of the skin where to exactly place the needles. not only can it hurt badly when incorrectly placed; one can become injured - indeed even paralyzed if care is not given to precise placement. Since Master Tam is a Master in VOVINAM Martial Arts and a practitioner of acupuncture for over 40 years, he only has to touch the skin in the area of insertion and he knows precisely where to place the needles for maximum benefit. Like the discipline and study required to become a Master in VOVINAM, acupuncture requires years of knowledge and use to become a trusted practitioner.

Before beginning with the needles Master Tam places heated gel packs behind my neck and under my ankles to stimulate better circulation. In the summer he uses cold or frozen packs to do the same. After the needles are withdraw, he places thinly sliced pieces of ginger over the my back and legs in the areas where the needle points were. On the ginger is a small ball of Artemisia Vulgaris (the leaves of a plant similar to the Chrysanthmum) mixed with Moschuh Muschiferus (this substance is taken from glands found in the lower abdomen of a small male mountain deer). This is lit with a lighter. As the acid malic gets hotter, the acid malic (which causes my muscle to make me feel fatigued) is drawn from my body. I can actually hear the thick sticky substance sizzle as it is drawn out of my body. When the heat is too great he moves the ginger to another location.

Next he massages my back with a specially prepared combination of oils. Some of the ingredients are Methyl Salicylate, Eucalyptus, Menthol and Peppermint. These oils continue to heal, relax and comfort all day as they turn into a powder on your skin.

If you are open to the idea of alternative (bypassing regular doctors and drugs) medicine, you have to have a strong belief that this is going to benefit you. If you go into it with the attitude that “it won’t work, but I will just give it a try” - guess what, it won’t work. However, if you are willing to try another method of healing open to the hope of it working - “I can do it and I will be happy with the results”, it will work. There is a lot about how our body works that I do not know or understand. But I do know that my attitude directly affects my health. A negative attitude causes frequent illness, constant fatigue and makes the pain so much more intense. On the other hand, a positive attitude of love, acceptance and giving to others has its own reward - good health and a deep lasting sense of well-being and contentment.

Yes, the pain in my body is diminishing. The swelling caused by the constant contraction of muscles around the point of pain is nearly gone. And I am also losing weight!! In addition, I am experiencing a higher level of energy and a much stronger sense of purpose and well-being. Has acupuncture alone done all of this? I don’t think so, but it has a lot to do with my healing process combined with the use of herbs and a strong positive attitude.

Perhaps the most important part of my treatment is the therapeutic touch of Master Tam. As he inserts the needles, he touches my skin. His touch is as soft as a butterfly’s wings or as light as the breath of a baby’s kiss. It is through this touch that he transfers part of his Chi or spiritual love to me. It is this touch which removes the pain of the prick of the needle, begins the healing of my physical body and energizes my inner spirit.

Where before I was very stress-out and fragmented, now there is a feeling of wholeness and working together of my mind, body and spirit.
