    How to heal yourself with qigong

    qigongs blessings and healing starts relatively fast in my humble opinion, I can feel better the moment I do a qigong practice, you feel more energised and yet relaxed.
    Qigong can put your brain into an Alpha State- allowing a more relaxed approach to life and even stress. you can process data with more flow, and get good ideas.

    it has been proven that practicing qigong stimulates alpha and can even stimulate theta brainwaves which are associated with alert relaxation or in the case of theta, deeper yet freeflow ideas. this is important for healing as it allows your body to let go of tension and allows for the build up of energy – which can then be used by your body for healing.

    Qigong Shuts Down your Cortisol (Stress Hormone) – allowing your body to Heal and repair itself

    another awesome thing that happens is that you will cease producing cortisol the stress hormone responsible for lowering your immune system and the following fantastic things happen:

    • Makes you stupid- Impaired cognitive performance (we all need that hey!)
    • Blood sugar imbalances – you stop absorbing glucose(phase 2 diabetes!)
    • Decreased bone density
    • Suppressing the thyroid function
    • Degradation of muscle tissue
    • Causes High blood pressure
    • Loweres your immune systems defences and increases inflammation in the body , – which causes premature aging
    • Increased abdominal fat, which is associated with heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and metabolic syndrome

    Qigong stimulates the chi and blood to flow correctly, correcting imbalances in your neurological system and energy

    Qigong also removes and prevents energy blocks that cause disease.

    remember my earlier lesson on what qi(chi) is? its it breath and energy the stuff of life, it has innate intelligence, kind of like the building blocks of the universe – but in this instance we need to know that will stimulate healing -to get good healing you need good quality qi in your system.

    H0w To Get Good Quality QI

    firstly we get qi from food or herbs(like good quality green tea) – so this is external stuff we consume or drink, which brings me to the first major component of healing –

    DIET:

    nothing could be more under contention thant the various arguments about what constitutes a good diet, with paleo, vegetarianism, raw food vegan etc all in the mix, I can only advise what works for me.. or what seems to..

    I am not a vegetarian but i still think that todays diet, particularly the standard western diet is sorely lacking in vegetables, I read about a lady who was a doctor who had advanced MS and she cured herself by eating

    1. 3 cups of green leafy veggies(kale, spinach)
    2. 3 cups of color containing veggies (peppers, red cabbage, beets)
    3. 3 cups of sulphur rich veggies(cabbage, garlic, onions)
    4. grass fed beef/ herring
    5. organ meat (rich in Ubiquinol)
    6. and seaweed

    my point is that all the good qi, the flavones and vitamins and things science has yet to quantify – helped heal her advanced disease, she was confined to a wheelchair when she started.. so I invite you to invite more good healthy veggies into your life..

    Good Quality AIR:

    air high in natural negative ions, is extremely beneficial to you, and did you know the areas the ancient qigong masters always recommended we practice are the places with the highest levels of negative ions.

    • these would be near waterfalls, near the beach/sea and in the shower (ok thats from a modern qigong master)

    Negative ions carry a charge, and they actually recharge your batteries..

    • Strengthen the functions of autonomic nerves
    • Reinforces collagen (tissues that are resilient and tension-related)
    • Improves the permeability of the cell’s prototype plasma membranes (improves metabolism)
    • Strengthens the body’s immune system

    So practice by the sea or near the mountains or near a tree, but even a well ventilated room is pretty good!

     

    anyways my apologies, its been a while since my last entry, ive moved to South Africa from Ireland, needed the sun!
