How does Chi Kung work really for healing?
If you’re not clear on whether Chi Kung is for you-here’s another more scientific explanation. Dr. Raymond Francis is a well known author and famous for healing from a terminal illness, and he now works to share his findings with the world and is designing a class that elementary school kids can understand about health care. He’s broken it down into this for the purposes of treatment (not for identifying):
There are only two causes for disease. Any disease.
There is either malfunctioning cells, due to deficient energy OR toxins. Its really that simple, but you can look up his videos on youtube if you want to hear more.
The point is when cells aren’t working properly we get sick, and they can stop working due to insufficient energy OR overload of toxins.
Chi Kung is healing because it is a system of improving the energetic flow through the body. This means more awareness through your different pathways, and more awareness leads to increase blood flow, nutrient flow, and everything the cells need to function optimally. So Chi Kung works directly on the cause of disease due to insufficient energy by opening up communication between the cells and restoring homeostasis to the body.
This also happens to lead to an increased awareness and sensitivity to toxins. After my practice I notice that I am more aware of what foods my body needs, that I am less able to eat unhealthy and toxic foods, and that I no longer can stand stale or polluted air for long periods. This had lead to me gradually changing my lifestyle to remove toxins and have a more vibrant and healthy life!
