Practicing Qigong Helps Fight Cancer

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009


On Saturday, Rami Rones talked about the use of tai chi and qigong with individuals suffering from arthritis. Research (joint studies from the United States and China) now shows that this intervention may also help fight cancer.

Yuan Zheng Ping, head of the Cancer Rehabilitation Club in China, was diagnosed with malignant lymphoma 28 years ago and after studying Guolin qigong in Beijing started the Cancer Rehab Club in 1989 to teach others. He did a survey in 1993 with 1,500 cancer patients and found that after practicing Guolin qigong for 5 years there was about an 85 percent recovery rate. A second survey was carried out in 2003 and of 7000 cancer patients more than 60 percent had survived over 5 years.
Subsequently, the University of Illinois and Shanghai University of Sports studied this relationship and found it can help cancer patients live longer and have a better quality of life.
Another study sponsored by the National Cancer Institute is in the first phase and researcher Wang Changwei in China says regardless of quality of life, exercise ability, or health condition those who practiced Guolin qigong are far better off than those who don’t exercise qigong. The study is in its initial phase and a large scale study should take 3 to 5 years to confirm the validity of qigong and cancer recovery.
