Anesthesia is indispensable in major operations. Sometimes minor operations are performed without anesthesia and some major operations are performed without anesthesia for some reasons. Absence of pain is the purpose of anesthesia. The quicker disappearance of the action of narcotics the better after the suture of the wound.
Qigong anesthesia means the patient loses his consciousness when the qigong master emits his qi to him. But after cessation of emission of qi the patient comes to. This brings about favorable prognosis and is taken as an ideal anesthetic way.
When a person is injured, endorphin is produced within the body, which kills pain. Then a qi strong master is able to use qigong anesthesia.
Man and animal experiments proved that the health condition and qi emission are closely related.
Ten min. Iater after qi emission, the effect is nearly the same to drug anesthesia. 96% of the pain nerves are anesthetized, which verifies the action of qigong anesthesia. Ten min. Iater after cessation of qigong anesthesia, 24.47% of anesthesia disappears, 72.53% pain remains. It shows the quick loss of anesthesia.
Facts prove that qigong anesthesia is an ideal anesthetic way. At the same time, it shows the anesthetic action is closely related to the health condition of the qigong masters.
