is Qigong and how does it relate to
healing or to one's health? Qi means energy. Gong means to work with
these energies and to train the energy. So when one has much qi or energy
then one's health will be good. Qigong cures diseases, prevents diseases,
strengthens the body, makes one feel younger and makes one live longer.
Qigong has three compartments to it. There is medical qigong, qigong
for one's health and martial arts qigong. They all intersect each other.
We will be discussing medical qigong and qigong for health. There are
many styles and techniques in qigong, but I will be discussing the fasting
and detoxification technique in Qinway Qigong. Qi travels through the
meridians, which are pathways connecting to the organs in the body.
When there is a problem in the body there is a blockage of the energy
in the meridian and in the organ. The
problem begins when we take toxic material into our bodies by bad diet,
alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, polluted air or just too much stress to
our nervous system.
Qinway Qigong help our bodies? This technique of fasting and detoxification
moves the diseased qi out of the body through qigong exercise, fasting
and detoxification in the form of feces, urine, sweat etc. When one
has a disease component the qi is blocked and the disease backs up into
an organ system. It is like putting a dam on a river to block its free
flow. The Qinway Qigong technique opens the dam and lets the qi and
blood flow so the toxicity can get out of the body.
I had hypertension, and chest pain occasionally. I was taking Chinese
herbs for 3 years and no western medicine. The Chinese herbs kept the
hypertension and chest pain in check but I still had to take something
everyday, When I came in contact with Qinway Qigong. I did the Qigong
fasting detoxification for 9 days. The hypertension and chest pain disappeared,
and I lost about 8-10 lbs. Three months later I was still not taking
any Chinese herbs and my hypertension was good. I did another 6 day
Qigong fasting detoxification while working 2 jobs everyday. I lost
another 10 lbs. Because I could do Chinese medicine diagnosis by pulse
taking, and tongue examination, I could see and feel my heart and liver
being healed by Qigong. I have had chronic liver problems for over 20
years because of having hepatitis A and malaria. In the past, I felt
my liver was not metabolizing food correctly, and I became very sensitive
to foods. For example, if I drank a glass of wine I could feel the effects
for 3 days. Now, I feel about 20 years younger, my liver and heart have
changed dramatically (upper left picture, before practicing Qinway Qigong;
upper right picture, after practicing Qinway Qigong).
As a doctor
of Chinese Medicine, I have observed and personally experienced the
effectiveness of Qinway techniques to detoxify the body of disease
and to give a more youthful look to people. It is also amazing at the
speed that the disease process is able to reverse itself and to rid
itself of these toxins. This is truly an effective technique for ridding
human beings of a disease process and to feel younger and healthy.
