Qigong and Zhineng Qigong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese holistic therapy. It is the foundation to Tai Chi, but relatively simpler than Tai Chi.
Qigong includes dynamic and static forms.

Zhineng Qigong emphasises moving meditation rather than static meditation.
It uses the consciousness, body, breath, sound vibration and universal Qi(energy) to bring about positive transformation of the body, mind and spirit.

“After practicing Zhineng Qigong, my cancer disappeared. In the practice, I feel protected, joyful, safe and more energy. Healing comes naturally when we get out of the way and go beyond our attachments. Our new life is starting Now!”
~ Luise Kohl-Hajek, Germany

“The gentle movements stretch every muscle in my body although they look very simple. My muscles feel stronger, and I am mentally stronger too. While practicing, I feel the sense of “unity with the universe.””
~ Susan Sky, NZ

“Through regular qigong practice, my back pain is healed and my spine is more flexible. I had also been suffering severe shoulder pain for months. Just like a miracle, after one qigong class the pain had gone. The pain did come back a couple of days later, but much milder. After regular practice, I am pain free. This was a wow fact for me. I LOVE the feeling of connection to the Universal Qi, and would like to share qigong with others.”
~ Graham Good, NZ

Crohns

Janet from Halswell

My daughter had Crohns/Ulcerative Colitis for over 10yrs.....debilitating disease, tried everything including Remicade transfusions ( which were terrible)..She tried many things...Anyway just have to share this....nothing in it for me, except somebody else may benefit.....It started in October 2018 first I made her stop ALL medications then fast for a day.....then she started on a strict combination diet ie Alkaline as per R Young AND Lectin Free as per Gundry.....the diet had to exclude each and everything that each diet excluded....anyway...after only 3 weeks she noticed improvement,,, and if she did cheat and consume those foods, same as now, she reacts very very badly to them . But the good news is, a recent 2021 colonoscopy showed a completely healed Colon. She also takes CBD oil as this disease seems to affect the brain, so although not "cured" , she has no disease symptoms and can now break the rules occasionally without any flare, although rarely does as risk not worth it. I hope this post helps somebody else.
