Western and Qigong Medicines        Facilitating a Paradigm Shift in Medicine
                                    for

the Wellbeing of People

 

 

How and Why I’ve come to do this project:

Western Medicine is indispensable when it comes to acute illnesses and severe injuries. However this isn’t the case when treating chronic conditions, burnout, lowered vitality or trying to prevent illness in the first place. Here’s where Qigong Medicine can step in as a very effective way to deal with these.

Most of the health advice nowadays is given by the allopathic healthcare practitioners. However the western health education lacks exposure to patient centred healing techniques and other global cultures such as Qigong. To help medical practitioners see the potential of Qigong and Qigong Medicine and how their patients can benefit from it, doctors would need to be given a chance to experience the effects of Qigong for themselves.

My two referees are GPs who teach Qigong - they are living examples of the new way of thinking in medicine.

My Goal:

Introduce Qigong to open-minded doctors so they can experience its positive effects and see the potential of complementing Western medicine with Qigong.

How does this project benefit the community, society and humanity as a whole?

Marked health improvement for both involved medical practitioners and their patients at very low cost.

Healthier society consisting of more self aware and realised individuals who take the responsibility of their health and wellbeing in their own hands.

Applying Qigong on a larger scale can save millions of dollars of the national health care budgets.

How much do I need for the project and what will this go towards?

I plan to offer free tuition in Qigong to about 20-40 General Practitioners (Medical Doctors). The cost to train one person to the level one can start experiencing the benefits of Qigong is about $250-$500.

The purpose of the free offer is to present the project as a no-obligation non-commercial initiative intended to open new horizons for heath care. As health practitioners experience the benefits of the practice and are educated regarding the evidence behind the efficiency, they’ll be able to share it with their colleagues and patients. The benefit to the population of adding this powerful DIY tool to the health professional tool kit is potentially very large.
