The fact that free radicals (superoxides) in the human body are related to cancer, aging phenomena, and many kinds of diseases of adults has been well known from recent research. In order to investigate the variation of free radicals in the whole blood of the human body before and after qigong treatment from a qigong master, the concentration of free radicals was measured by ultra-weak chemiluminescence method. Measurements were performed for healthy people and patient group with several kinds of diseases, that is, cancers including solid tumors and lymphadenoma, heart disease and schizophrenia. The concentrations of free radicals were reduced remarkably through qigong treatment for all subject.
