    Introduction : I remember reading this story in the original magazine, while on vacation on Mackinac Island. It was surprising to say the least. I was like wow how can this happen to her? I studied with her father years before and his Qigong is of high caliber. It struck me real fast although, it's a reminder that we are all human and troubling disorders can hit any of us. This is not "Qi Majik". Her story is of value someone whom like myself actually has used these techniques for healing first and foremost. People that conquer problems with Chinese Medicine are great teachers on what one actually needs to do, NOW. I hope all readers interested in this find this post of use in your Journey..GWA



    Qigong Healing for Cancer


    Helen Liang comes from a bonafide family of Masters; her father and Great Grandfather are very famous in the Martial Arts/Qigong circles. Helen and her sister are accomplished in their own rights as well. I had taken classes with her father when he came to the east coast many years ago. His traditions are solid to say the least. His teachings have attracted the who's-who abroad. He is now in his mid 70's and still going strong.


    When Helen Liang was four years old she started training under her father Shou Yu Liang . The family relocated from China to Vancouver 30 years ago, when she was 13, and now Helen Liang now runs the SYL Wushu Taiji Qigong Institute with her father Liang Shou-yu. She has been featured in North American martial arts magazines, hosted a long-running martial arts TV series on Vancouver's Channel M and has competed internationally.


    Helen Liang is a "Can-cer-vive Survivior" through Qigong and Chinese Medicine. These day's the Healing Qigong and meditative aspect of her training supported her through a serious cancer diagnosis 15 years ago, she said.


    She has produced a DVD which focuses on her insights, meditation and exercises, the link is below as well. The practice is geared towards basic health and wellness. In most cases although the practice has to be monitored and tailored often; Qigong exercises and treatments can change often in recovery, and a expertise really is needed just as a fyi. Her story is an important one you can read the original feature one from many years ago here:

  • Cyber Addictions: Electric Heroin

    I wrote about this back on April 27, 2017 after watching a different special and cases in which that one was even more troublesome in many ways: https://qigonghealingcentre.blogspot.com/2017/04/must-see-special-on-smart-phone.html


    So here we are again..many of my close friends and students gave me "the roll of the eyes effect", on this discussion. Many said there is nothing we can do, which is a reactive stance on this issue. I believe Qigong should be promoted for cases like "Process Addictions" and topics like this should be brought to light. For after all many come to Qigong in many cases as a last result after all else has failed. This Forty minute video explores several common cases, that might surprise you. Re-valuate your participation with this technology. Qigong is a system that can help with detoxing and aiding on the road to healing from this "Electric Heroin". For sure a professional Therapist in the field of process addictions will be needed as well. Find a Qigong teacher that understands how to use in these cases. I have helped many people in recent month's; practice needs to be monitored and gauged. 


    ***Update 5/22/2017***

    Here are some additional useful notes in regards to the above on Cyber/digital addictions. It is my belief if the potential for problems are high why get involved in the first place. I have received alot of response from readers about these articles.


    The problem will not go away; and to avoid dealing with it for sure is the wrong action as well. I feel people should take a stand and have boundaries on what they allow in their life as well. Parents might not always be aware of what their children are doing on their communication devices, but experts say there are obvious signs when it’s becoming dangerous.


    The red flags are “Is it interfering with school? Are you getting bad grades? Is it interfering with their functioning?” says Dr. David Rosenberg, department chair of psychiatry at Wayne State University and the Detroit Medical Center. “Or they’re breaking things, or they’re fighting with you, they’re hurting themselves, they’re refusing to go to school, they’re not sleeping at all, they’re gaining a massive amount of weight.”


    Interesting to know for more than a year, 20/20 followed families in the “depths of their struggle,” exploring the “destructive dependence, extreme change of personality, isolation, and physical signs during withdrawal” victims can experience, ABC said.


    If you took he time to watch the video we had seen the special examined the cases of a 15-year-old girl who went to rehab after a dangerous online relationship; a 14-year-old gamer whose obsession prevented him from attending school; and a married man’s excessive gaming habit that severely impacted his wife and four children.


    Kevin Roberts, author of Cyber Junkie and Escape the Gaming and Internet Trap, says parents with children in similar situations should take action “when you have a child that you can’t trust, who time and again will not follow the rules, lies, covers up the behaviors.” And pay attention to “emotional outbursts when you turn off the game or take the smartphone,” he cautions. “That’s a red flag.”


    But don’t go it alone. “The most important thing, if you’re concerned, is to get a comprehensive assessment by a trained professional, a mental health professional,” says Rosenberg.


    To stop bad habits from forming, Roberts advises parents to be careful early on. “We want to start considering screen use from a very young age,” he says. “Children under 7, I’d severely limit it. I would not use technology as babysitters.” He adds: “Require outdoor activities, sports, performance in school as requisite behaviors that you have to accomplish and achieve in order to use technology.” Considering the example you’re setting is also crucial: “You have to be the model,” says Roberts. “You have to model the behaviors that you want in your children.

  • Legendary Healers of Traditional Chinese...

    Four famous Traditional Healers are revered in the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine. They are Bian Que, Huatuo, Sun Simiao, and Li Shizhen. Read more below:


     Bian Que: Bian Que is the earliest known physician, from China's Warring States period, from 770 to 221BC. According to historical texts, Bian Que had supernormal abilities to see through the human body; coines as xray vision. He's the founder of the pulse-taking diagnosis. Legend has it that Bian Que revived the crown prince of the state of Guo; believed to be dead. Using pulse diagnosis, Bian Que found the prince was in a coma and treated him with acupuncture. Thus, Bian Que was known as "the doctor who brings the dead back to life."


    Hua Tuo: A extremely important fgure to modern Qigong; Hua Tuo is known as China's first surgeon, living during the late Han Dynasty and early Three Kingdoms era. According to historical texts, Hua Tuo was called the "Divine physician" or "Shenyi" in Chinese. Hua Tuo invented Ma Fei San; an anesthetic drug used to reduce pain during surgery.


    One legendary story has it that Hua Tuo treated Guan Yu, the famous general of Emperor Liu Bei in the Shu state during the Three Kingdoms period. A poisoned arrow had injured Guan's right arm during a battle. Hua Tuo applied anesthetic, made a cut in Guan's right arm, and then cut away the poisoned part of the flesh. The surgery was done while Guan was playing a board game. According to historical accounts, Hua Tuo saw a tumor in Cao Cao's brain and suggested brain surgery. But Cao Cao ruler of the Wei state during the Three Kingdoms era thought Hua Tuo wanted to kill him. He imprisoned Hua Tuo who died in prison. Later Cao Cao died of this illness. Hua Tuo is also known for developing "Wu Qin Xi" The famous Five Animals Frolics Healing exercises.


    Sun Simiao: Sun Simao is one of the most influential physicians in the history of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is distinguished by his application of medicine and his adherence to an ethical code. His interest in medicine came from his own fragile health whereby he treated himself as his first patient. His mastery of medicine, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism made Emperor Wen of the Sui Dynasty, and Emperors Tai-zong and Gao-zu of the Tang Dynasty seek him out as an imperial physician. However, Sun Simiao declined these posts and devoted his life to being a physician who served the common people. He believed the best way to care for a patient was to prevent an illness before it occurred. The worst care was to treat an illness that had already occurred because it meant that he was unable to keep his patient healthy.


    Sun Simiao's best known works are Qianjin Yaofang (Prescriptions Worth a Thousand Gold for Emergencies or Precious Prescriptions for Emergencies) and the Qianjin Yifang (A Supplement to the Essential Prescriptions Worth a Thousand Gold or Supplement to Precious Prescriptions). The first book is comprised of 30 volumes and lists 5,300 prescriptions. The second book is also made up of 30 volumes and lists 2,571 prescriptions. Sun Simiao's observations about diseases and his prescribed treatments are noteworthy even today. For example, he knew cholera and diarrhea were caused by what people ate and drank and not by "evil spirits" as was commonly thought. He correctly identified tuberculosis as a lung disease, which was a new concept of this time. After successfully treating 600 cases of leprosy, he is considered the earliest expert on this disease in China.


    Sun Simiao is also renowned for his identification and treatment of deficiency disorders. Even though he was not exactly sure of the cause of goiter (hypothyroidism caused by lack of iodine), he knew it occurred in people who lived in certain mountainous regions and drank unsanitary water. He prescribed medicine from the thyroid glands of deer and sheep because they are high in iodine content. Nyctalopia, which is night blindness caused by lack of vitamin A, was successfully treated with pig, calf and sheep livers that contain large amounts of this vitamin. He is the first person in the medical history to document the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of Beriberi, a deficiency disease caused by lack of vitamin B1. For this, he prescribed combinations of herbs that were high in Vitamin B1.


    The elderly also benefited from Sun Simiao because he was a strong advocate for maintaining health throughout a person's life. He thought life could be prolonged with measures such as performing daily Qigong, regular physical exercise, and massage therapy. He advised against excessive drinking, eating raw meat, and spitting in public. He also believed diet therapy should be tried before resorting to medicine.


    Other advances made by Sun Simiao were in the areas of acupuncture, moxibustion and pharmacy. He thought moxibustion should be performed prior to acupuncture, and he was successful in determining essential acupuncture points. Sun Simiao also combined acupuncture with drug therapy, and stressed using the ashi point, which is still used by acupuncturists today. His knowledge of herbs was vast, and he insisted on harvesting them in the proper season and processing them correctly. The nickname "king of pharmacology" or 'king of prescriptions" was given to him because he was especially knowledgeable in preparation of medicinal herbs. 


    Li Shizhen: Li Shizhen from the Ming Dynasty is one of the greatest Chinese herbalists. He's regarded as the father of traditional Chinese medicine and the patron saint of Chinese herbal medicine. Li's key contribution is the "Compendium of Herbs" or "Bencao Gangmu" in Chinese.


    The book covers nearly 1900 (1892) different herbs in 60 different categories. In ancient China, these great physicians were said to have had supernatural abilities. They could see through the human body with the Third Eye. According to traditional Chinese thought, this third eye is located in the forehead, slightly above and in between the eyebrows, and can be activated through spiritual cultivation practice. While this is a mystical concept, the Third Eye is part of the Pineal gland. Today, modern medical science recognizes that the front part of the Pineal gland contains the exact structure of a human eye.

  • Recovering from Addiction

    Addictions is a major problem that I have encountered in the past few years, with people searching for answers. They are culturally stigmatized, and people that are addicted are no different then someone with any other medical disorder; this just happens to be theirs.

    Many loved ones say why can't they just quit? Its a complicated disorder and "will power" alone will not do it. Most likely it will take several attempts to get on the right track to healing. Addictions are increasing at alarming rates; and still treated in many family's as a dirty secret not to let out. People suffering feel shunned and embarrassed and powerless. The latest trend is children 7-16 addicted to technology; which is apalling. Who's to blame here; that a whole another conversation. The world is being seduced by gadgets and humans as a race are losing themselves. It is very true often said "A mind is a terrible thing to waste".  

    Why are the habits hard to quit is because a powerful cascade of microscopic pleasurable chemicals called neurotransmitters, such as Dopamine, Norepinephrine, Oxytocin, Vasopressin and Serotonin, are instantaneously released in the brain. This chemical reaction is set off in the primitive unconscious part of the human brain known as the limbic system; then it instantly spreads throughout the brain and body by an intricate and vast super highway of neuro networks. These tiny microscopic neurotransmitters have a huge affect on how brain cells function and grow. They can drive or compel one to seek certain behaviors by creating powerful physical cravings. Through repetition, these behaviors can become very powerful addictions that can then inhibit a persons ability to think and make rational choices.

    Our physical brain can actually become hijack of our mind and will. Its kinda like a "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde persona", at times the person will be very normal and then bam they are acting out with whatever they are hooked on. They do whatever it takes to see it to the end as well. Understanding how the brain works from a clinical perspective is critical for those seeking full recovery. After gaining this understanding, our doors of perception can be opened to seeking positive spiritual answers and solutions.

    In this short video expert Dr. Patrick Carnes lays out what typically happens when one is "drying out" from whatever plaques them from the first 40 days to the third year and beyond. Dr. Carnes highlights a important aspect of the emotions and withdrawl symptoms associated with addiction cleansing. Qigong most likely will not heal someone from addictive compulsions alone, but will help balance them to a great extent. In my clients addicted, I have seen it as a imoprtant factor in adding quality of life in the healing process. A important caution with Qigong exercises and Meditation's is not to overdue them. More is not better it can actually cause triggers to erupt. Read below:

    How triggers work: These internal trigger's happens inside of us, for instance in the forms of imbalanced emotions. In Professional Classes I took as a sponsor for friends in the past the easy way to remember them are either as: "HALT"; Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired. The other popular one is "BLAST" Bored, Lonely, Angry, Tired. People can get triggered with any of the above and actually more. People can get triggered also in a healing session; so it is crucial whomever you are working with to not overdue it. One could get angry, tired and even bored during practice, which is usally caused from wrong practice, or they simply just are getting stressed out. Test ride the practice at 10 minutes intervals in the beginning and see how you feel.  

    In closing I will say its important to look at what you allow in your life and get seduced by. More and more people are addicted to many things such as the internet, toxic relationships, drugs of all types and technology driven addictions. It is causing a whirldwind of problems in peoples lives. Always be involved with licensed Medical experts that work with compulsion disorders. Body/Mind exercises can help greatly, but should not be the default lone therapy. Qigong groups work well for this kind of problem, because its a very positive, non judgemental environment and helps people dissolve the false negative messages in our body/mind. It will give one a place to observe and work on the issues going on in themsleves. A caring therapist/mentor will be crucial to help them process what they are facing on a daily basis, outside their family, friends and doctors as well.

    Archived video from 2004 on Energy emissions in Qigong. The audio is not the best, I would suggest wearing head phones. Wai Qi Liao Fa (External Qi Emissions ), Kikou, Reiki and Village lineages work generally with same principles.

    Being experienced in both traditions, since the early 1980's; I will say the Chinese Qigong Tradition has the most well rounded preparation although for serious healers. This can be applied to a diverse approach although. Hope you find these videos on Evidence Based Studies of value. Dr. Shin Lin and others are doing important studies for westerners, that are new and need validation via scientific data.

    This is another archived video, still is valid and current on Healing Qigong. This time presented by Dr. Shui Yin Lo. Dr. Lo is a Highly respected Scientist and Therapist. Professor of Physics, Inventor, Health expert. His work is to explain the basis of oriental medicine-the meridian system and how health can be effected by this system. In recent years he has demonstrated the effect of stable water cluster (Double Helix Water) on relationship to health.

    Currently focused on the research and further development of stable water cluster. His research demonstrates that drinking stable water cluster positively effects health. His hypothesis is that the stable water cluster (Double Helix Water) helps unblock the meridians in the body encouraging health and vigor.

    In this timely video Dr. Shin Lin describes Health benefits of Tai Chi Chuan practice and adopting what he describes scientific based practice. It is nothing new actually it has been taught elsewhere as "Single Form Tai Chi Practice"; by Lineage Masters of Wutang, Chen, Yang, Wu, Hao, Sun and village traditions.

    His lectures I have participated in and Scientific reports I have read although are very impressive and separates lore vs. factual findings. So for westerners that need data they can find his work very well received.

    One of the underestimated practices in Qigong is the open/close, "Pulling, Pulsing Energy". The mere opening and closing is not the complete technique, many techniques involved.

    Historic footage of The Huaxia Qigong Recovery Centre in Qin Huang Dao, was a remarkable place. Hundred of thousands of students, professors and Medical professionals went to get healed and learn. In this video shows more examples of how they emitted energy for increasing size of vegetables and fruit. Real Time cancer treatment clip and the Collective Qi Practice. Unfortunately because of the incidence of politics with members of Falun Gong all activities of qigong were restricted, and this Centre was closed, as well as many other Centre's and programs.
