Practicing chi kung can overcome any illness


I have a so-called incurable disease called ulcerative colitis. My immune system no longer works properly and is attacking my large colon and eating it alive from the inside.

-- Michael, USA


According to chi kung, there is no such a thing as an incurable disease. This, unfortunately, does not mean that every patient can be cured of his disease. If his disease, even a simple one, has gone beyond a threshold, it may not be cured.

Chi kung looks at illness and health from a different perspective. It may sound crazy to those used to the Western medical perspective, but from the chi kung perspective, illness -- any illness -- is due to disharmonious energy flow. Hence, a chi kung master or therapist would not bother whether your immune system is eating your colon from inside or outside; but what he is concerned is to restore your energy flow. Once your energy flow is restored, you will regain your health. When you have regained your heath, you will not have what Western doctors call ulcerative colitis.

What you should be concerned is not whether your illness should be called ulcerative colitis or disharmonious energy flow. What you should be concerned is whether you can regain your health, or in Western terms whether you can be cured of your illness, irrespective of what name you or other people may choose to call it.

The above is taken from Question 6 Oct 2000 Part 1 of the Selection of Questions and Answers.
