Clinical studies are reviewed to illustrate that qigong can improve the health of people suffering from different chronic medical problems that accelerate the aging process. The focus is on personal practice of qigong exercise to improve many functions of the body, improve health and reverse aging. Clinical studies suggest that a combination therapy of qigong and drugs is superior to drug therapy alone, as indicated in the case of two diseases, hypertension and cancer. Qigong therapy can complement Western medicine in many ways to improve healthcare.
