Cerebroatrophy is a difficult disease with symptoms of dizziness, inert thinking, stupid facial expression, feeling top heavy and motion impairment.
Case analysis Xie Shijun, male, 79 yeas old, teacher. He felt dizzy, slow in thinking, top heavy, motion impairment, etc. He gradually lost his ability of reading and work. He was always dozing off, and seldom, if ever, liked to talk to anyone. He had been treated by modern medicine and traditional Chinese medicine with failure.
On January 4, 1987, the patient started to follow my advice and do the 'Quan Zhen Gong' twice a day in the morning and evening. He sat still and relaxed the whole body,
expecting or thinking of something like a small ball stirring in the abdomen all around. Each time it would take him half an hour or so to do the exercise.
On February 5, he went to the hospital for a C. T. examination, which determined his trouble to be cerebroatrophy. Having sufficient confidence, he made up his mind to follow the qigong therapy insistently and ceaselessly. He did four times of qigong exercise daily, two in the morning and two in the evening. His mental energy seemed to be coming back and to increase. He did not sleep so often and so much as before, he could walk about in the house.
On April 9, he began to receive the emitted qi from me. Immediately after the treatment he was able to walk about a little.
From July 25, acting upon my advice the patient ceased to come to the hospital but to do the exercise at home, because he was much better. The patient resumed his self-exercising under the care of the university's qigong cum psychology therapy service group.
Now quite a different picture may be presented here about the former invalid. He has completely come to. He lives and works in normal way. He is mentally active again and has a spirited complexion. He can walk upstairs and downstairs by himself and walk without a stick, quite a different man from the invalid that he was.
On March 30, 1988, the hospital submitted the patient to another C. T. examination. It was confirmed that his disease had gone off. The back-to-health state was such that his cerebrum was better conditioned than that of a man of the same age who had not had cerebroatrophy ever.
