Few people know this but qi gong is one of the most potent forms of cancer management and cancer-prevention cancer management exercises there is. It is a mild type of restorative exercise from China similar to Tai Chi and having originated in China.
While boosting the levels of oxygen to detoxify the body, the movements performed in Qi gong also specifically influence the internal organ systems of the body in a concentrated manner.
Certain qi gong movements focus on the immune system by working the large and lung intestine energy channels which are believed to be associated in the Chinese medicinal system to enhance immunity when faced with challenges such as cancer and increase that body’s capacity to recover more quickly post surgery.
Qi gong movements such as the movement of the Taoist Five Kidney focus on the reproductive organs to boost fertility and to protect against reproductive disorders including ovarian/cervical cancers, fibroids and ovarian cysts, prostate cancers, enlarged prostate.
Some qi gong movements target the abdomen and spleen and can be combined with self massage qi gong to relieve nausea (usually felt by people who are going through radiation therapy or chemotherapy).
A gentle and balanced qi gong exercise will work on the internal organs to build strength beyond muscular or cardiovascular levels and to revitalize health.
When seeking a teacher of qi gong to address reproductive organ pathologies such as prostate cancer, you can inquire whether the practitioner has a long history dealing with the clinical applications of qi gong. Such instructors are trained to tailor movements to address specifically the different forms of cancer.
To gain health benefits, thirty minutes a day of qigong exercises is recommended although even shorter exercise periods can improve health. We recommend one to three minutes of qi gong exercises gently interspersed throughout your day to get an aggregate of 30 to 45 minutes of qi gong exercises each day. In this manner, you need not have to set aside time to perform qi gong but can naturally incorporate it into your life and utilize it as a powerful healing modality.
