I am a musician. I woke up one day to find my left ear without hearing anything. It took over two weeks to be examined by the ear specialist and the diagnosis was “sudden hearing loss”. I was given a medication. I visited Quli Zhou out of desperation and she started the treatment immediately with acupuncture and herbal medicine, which would not conflict with the other medication. Quli Zhou treated me for the problem earnestly. The hard spots behind my ear and on neck gradually disappeared and the ear blockage which did not clear during the past two weeks, was gone in only two days. The distortion level of my hearing varied every day until finally I started recognizing the right tonality and the intonation as I used to hear as an instrumentalist. When I went back to the ear specialist after two weeks, the hearing test showed normal results, which to me was 80 percent of what I used to hear, however, I belong to the lucky one third who could recover from the sudden loss of hearing. I am continuing treatment with Quli Zhou and my hearing continues to improve. The side effects of the intensive treatment have been all positive; better spirit, better metabolism and better appetite.
