QIGONG:  Disease Prevention and Healing

 

 

When taking daily prescriptions to manage health issues, patients must keep in mind that their issues are only controlled, not resolved, and come with many side effects as well as suggested lifestyle changes.  Years of fad diets, abandoned gym memberships and stale supplements have led Americans to lose faith in the health and wellness industry.  “Experts” rave how exercise improves your blood pressure, cholesterol, heart health, and bone density.  Meanwhile, your friends who exercise look about the same, with an added limp or torn rotator cuff.  Sounds like a great club to join!

 

Bring up your latest symptoms with a doctor and you will probably learn about the newest drug.  With pharmaceuticals available for most problems, alternatives are rarely discussed, given America’s dependency on the thriving pharmaceutical industry.  Prescribing a “quick fix” is not only easy, but most patients are satisfied with a prescription. 

Taking control of our health requires us to gain a greater understanding of our bodies. 

Individuals might spend hours sculpting their biceps, yet have no idea where their liver is located.  They run for hours without understanding proper breathing mechanics.  They can barely walk without cortisone, yet continue their daily run.  Sadly, we often instigate our own suffering, because we do not understand how our bodies work.  Traditional fitness programs focus much attention on the body’s cardiovascular and muscular systems, yet do not address the diseases that attack the organs and kill our loved ones each day.

 

Introducing Medical Qigong (pronounced “Chee-gong”).  A healing art with roots in Chinese Medicine, Qigong offers benefits similar to acupuncture.   With protocols ranging from gentle to intense, the qigong practice focuses on moving energy cultivated in three energy centers traveling along the twelve meridiens through the body to each of the organs.  As energy flows, the body might encounter blockages, often linked to our emotions.  This “stuck energy” may become toxic if left unbalanced, leading to disease and other ailments.   Alternatively, if the body can return to balance, it will function more efficiently and remain disease-free. 

Sadly, we often instigate our own suffering, because we do not understand how our bodies work.

 

While Medical Qigong specifically addresses each of the organs, protocols exist for ailments often treated through acupuncture.  In effect, practitioners are able to establish a more active role in maintaining their body’s vitality and health.  Practitioners may see improvements in function of all bodily systems, balance, strength, coordination, flexibility, mobility, and overall well-being.
