This report expounds the results of 158 cases of cerebral arteriosclerosis after 38 to 180 days treatment (with an average of 82 days) by conducting and respiration qigong. 91. 83% of the patients' symptoms have been relieved, and 82.82% of the syndromes have been alleviated. The unstable EEG cases have declined to 36.36% (48/132) comparing with 52.37% (69/132) before the training practice (P<O.Ol). The conducting and respiration qigong also had an effect on the wave amplitude of rheoencephalogram by recovering (P<O.Ol) or lowering (P< 0.01—0.O5) the cerebral blood flow to the normal level. The number of the sufferers whose total serum cholesterol and serum triglyceride determination were higher than normal had decreased to 72 (54.96%) from113 (86.07%) and 75 (57.73%) from 118 (90.07%), seperately after dirigation (P<O.01). Obvious differences before and after the training practice were seen. This has proved that qigong is effective in preventing and curing gerontal diseases — cerebral arteriosclerosis, so it is worth popularizing widely. In addition.qigong can balance yin and yang, adjust qi and blood, dredge the meridians and thus enable the body to go into its normal state of yin and yang.
