With the rapid development of modern science and technology and the enhancement of people's living standard, the constitutive proportion of diseases has changed and most infectious and parasitic diseases have been brought under control or eliminated, whereas tumors are becoming a common problem and are endangering man's life and health. In our country the number of patients suffering from tumor diseases is over 1,000,000 a year, and the number of patients who died from tumors have exceeded 800,000. Therefore, it is important for us to explore a new route to cure tumors.
Leukemia is a malignant tumor, which has a high incidence and is difficult to cure. As there are some similarities between leukemia in mice and human leukemia, we chose DBA mice as a research model to study the effect of the emitted qi on the L1210 cells of leukemia in mice. The experiment chose DBA mice with a weight of 20±2g, and both male or female mice were used. In the experiment we killed the mice, which had been injected with the L121O cells 7-9 days before we collected the celiec liquid and adjusted the concentration of cells to 4.70-31.00 million/ml (average concentration was 1.20 million/ml). 0.2 ml L1210 cells was injected i. p. into the abdominal cavity of mice, and after 1 day we randomly divided the mice into groups. Among these groups, the mice of the experimental group received the emitted qi once a day, 10-4 0 min. a time for 10 days, while in the control group no treatment was given. After 10 days, the mice were killed and the number of the L1210 cells were counted with a light microscope. The average value in the control group was 200.435xO.5 million/mouse, while in the experimental group 66.458xO.5 million/mouse, and there was a statistical meaning between the two groups (P<O.01). At the same time, we used the qigong information instrument to stimulated the mice injected with the L1210 cells once a day, 2 hrs. a time for 10 days, after which the number of L1210 cells was observed. The number in the control group was 160.826 X 0.5 million/mouse, while in the experimental group 70.870XO.5 million/mouse, and there was a statistical meaning between the two groups (P<O.01). The results showed that the number of L1210 cells which were injected into mice could be remarkably reduced after the mice received the emitted qi, and the fact suggested that the emitted qi could kill or inhibit the L1210 cells in mice.
Qigong is a part of traditional Chinese medicine, which is a therapy with Chinese characteristics. In recent years, qigong has been used to cure a lot of diseases, especially difficult diseases and tumor diseases. It is an important issue whether qigong can kill or inhibit malignant tumor cells or not. The result of this experiment showed that the emitted qi could kill or inhibit the L1210 cells of mice leukemia. After a body received it many times, the emitted qi could significantly reduce the number of L1210 cells in mice. The experimental study laid a theoretical basis for the treatment of tumors with qigong. Qigong therapy will be a new way to cure carcinoma. However, the mechanism and way that the emitted qi kills or inhibits L1210 cells of malignant tumors in mice needs to be further investigated.
