This claim is based on Chinese medical philosophy as well as on my practical experience in helping many patients to be cured of cancer. In Chinese medical philosophy, there is no such a thing as an incurable disease, because health is our natural birth-right. This is possible when all our psychological and physiological systems are functioning naturally. In Chinese medical paradigm, this is described as harmonious qi flow, which means that the energy flow that performs countless things to make us alive and healthy, is functioning naturally.
Why do people get cancer? It is because their body systems have failed to function, as they should. Actually we have cancer thousands of times in our lifetime, yet the same thousands of times, our body overcomes cancer without our knowing. This is brought about by our harmonious chi flow. Qigong is the very art that promotes harmonious chi flow.
In conventional medicine the approach is first to define the cause of a disease, then prescribe the treatment. This is very sensible, but problems arise when the cause is unknown, In Chinese medicine the concern is not with curing a disease, but with restoring the patient’s health. The Chinese physician discovers what caused his patient’s body systems to go wrong, and when the causes are overcome, the patient recovers.
There are many therapeutic methods in Chinese medicine, such as acupuncture, herbs, massage therapy and external medicine. The most direct and natural is qigong. Qi flows from high energy levels to low energy levels, and the area of lowest energy level is where the most serious disease is located. So if you keep your meridians open and increase your energy level, the extra energy will flow to where the disease is, overcome it and restore you to health. The extra energy will also prevent any occurrence of illness.
According to conventional cancer experts, the possible causes of cancer are carcinogens, radiation and viruses. Viruses cause cancer in animals, but not in human. We are literally living in an ocean of carcinogens and radiation. The question we all should consider is not why one out of five persons have cancer, but why four our of five do not. The answer is that by nature we can overcome cancer, or any illness. It is only when one or more body systems have failed to function naturally, that cancer, or any disease, surfaces. harmonious qi flow ensures all body systems to function naturally, and the forte of qigong is the promotion of harmonious qi flow. Qigong is without doubt a viable and essential practice for enhancing everyday life, as well as an effective factor in mainstream healthcare.
