Can Qi cure cancer?

Startling headline, but according to studies, including those at Harvard, YES! I was listening to an interview with Joan Borysenko who mentioned a study with Harvard and qi healers. They had separated cancer cells from healthy cells, then introduced them to the power of an external qi healer. The normal cells showed very little change. The cancer cells had a much different reaction. The pathways used by cancer cells to grow and spread were inhibited, and the cancer cells actually died. In addition, cancer in their tests were affected by the qi up to 24 hours after the qi healer had left the room. Remarkable!
Practicing Tai Chi
So, I had to research this myself, to find documentation. I mean, if this is true, why isn’t this the standard cure for cancer? Why are we instead forced into a concoction of lethal drugs and radiation? I have not found that study yet, but I did come across this article, dating back to 1980. Here the author, Paul Gong, relates personal stories of people who were listed as beyond Western medical care, healing themselves by doing a regular practice of qigong. Their recommendation was 30-45 minutes a day of moving and meditation. In this article, Helen Liang, a Wushu master in China, resolved her cancer with qigong practice, and herbs prescribed by a Traditional Medical doctor. And I’ve previously posted about the measurable effects of Tai Chi showing the increased oxygenation of blood after doing Tai Chi versus walking, running and resting.

This website has a number of different links to articles about qi curing cancer. One easy practice includes doing the Tai Chi walk, letting your arms swing from side to side, and breathing in twice for every exhale. This is called xi xi hu, or inhale, inhale, exhale. It is a fun and relaxing walk, and very easy to do. Come to one of my classes, and we’ll practice it together.

Measurable Benefits of Tai Chi

Why do we do Tai Chi – what are the benefits of Tai Chi? To an outsider, it may look like we are waving our hands around for no reason. We know that Tai Chi is based on ancient Chinese martial arts, and that each movement has an application or two, a purpose for each move. There are those who have studied the movements and say that one movement will help the energy in a particular meridian. But still, some people want scientific proof of our claims.

Part of Grasping Sparrow’s Tail Sequence

(Running scored the lowest.)This article by Dr. Pete Gryffin talks about how Tai Chi is scientifically measurably good for you. He studied various activities, such as walking, running, resting, Yang style Tai Chi, Grasping the Sparrow’s Tail sequence in particular, and Qi walking. He looked at the blood oxygen saturation of the various activities, and found that doing the Grasping the Sparrow’s Tail sequence resulted in the highest increase in blood oxygen saturation. Qi Walking, Yang style Tai Chi scored the second and third highest increases in blood oxygen saturation.

He also states that one of the major complications in cancer treatment is hypoxia, which is an oxygen deficiency in the tissues. So it is logical to conclude that by adding Tai Chi to your life will help with cancer treatments.

According to Great Grand Master Kellen Chia, Grasping the Sparrow’s Tail also benefits the eliminative organs of the body, such as the large intestine, colon, and will also treat constipation.
