This 5000-year-old healing technique called Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is considered the grandfather of Chinese medicine and is so potent that medical doctors have called it “absolutely remarkable” and“phenomenal.”
Qigong works with your body’s energy, or “Qi.”
According to Chinese medicine, when your “Qi” isn’t flowing freely, you can get sick, stressed, or emotionally out of kilter. Disease, pain, and negative emotional conditions occur because of this blocked energy.
Qigong is a healing method that involves gently and thoroughly releasing nearly all energy blocks in the body, and consequently eliminating most causes of illness and imbalance.
Traditional Doctors Say Qigong Is as Valuable as Antibiotics and Immunizations
“I would place Qigong equal in importance to the incredible discoveries in the 1940s called antibioticsand in the 1950s called immunizations,” says Dr. Bill Manahan, M.D., Assistant Professor of Family Practice and Community Health, University of Minnesota Medical School.
Renowned health expert and bestselling author Deepak Chopra M.D. also hails Qigong. “Like Yoga, Qigong teaches you to balance energy in your body,” says Dr. Chopra.
Qigong activates the flow of Qi through your body with a series of simple movements and postures combined with breathing techniques and meditative awareness. This specialized practice activates intrinsic physiological and psychological self-repair processes for health recovery. Studies have shown that Qigong boosts both alpha brain waves (thereby promoting relaxation) and beta brain waves (enhancing focus and concentration). Practicing Qigong regularly can both calm and sharpen your over-stimulated brain!
Science Gives Qigong a Big Thumbs Up
A growing body of evidence—approximately 2,000 studies according to the Qigong institute—attests to the limitless healing potential of Qigong. A 2009 review of scientific studies published in the Journal of Nursing reported that Qigong improves cardiovascular respiratory function and lipid profile, lowers blood sugar levels, and alleviates anxiety and depression.
Patients suffering from a variety of ailments have proclaimed Qigong a lifesaver at managing chronic pain and improving quality of life. A study made up of 96 women undergoing radiation therapy for breast cancer at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston found that participating in five Qigong classes per week significantly relieved depression and fatigue and enhanced quality of life.
