WARNING: WHAT EVERY CANCER PATIENT SHOULD KNOW…Before Starting on CHEMOTHERAPY

by Lisa VanOstrand, Dr. Of Medical Qigong (China)

3 Treasures Healing - Learn Medical QiQong Healing with Lisa VanOstrandThis article appeared in NEW LIFE  MAY-JUNE 2008 Issue and is by By Robert H. Sorge, N.D., Ph.D.  I wanted to include this on my blog as I often think chemotherapy is not the best option for clients with strong immune system and cancer that has not metastasized.  What is required is a complete life style change.  As Jeffrey Yuen, has repeatedly said “the consciousness that created the illness, is not the consciousness that can cure it”.  The people that I have known that have cured cancer have completely devoted their life to curing it, 24-7.  Regardless of the clients choice on chemotherapy, I support all clients in making the decisions that they and their family feel most comfortable with.

Most men and women reading this article have a good command of the English (American) language.  Even people whose own American language is their second language communicate quite well most of the time. For the most part we understand each other.  For example, if I were to ask you a simple question, such as, “What are my chances of seeing you tomorrow at twelve noon?”  Most of us, both native and foreign-born people, could understand and communicate a reasonable response to the question.

With orthodox drug medical doctors we have a completely different set of circumstances.  You may have noticed few of them speak the American language.  They have a gobblygoop language all of their own that is impossible for middle class America to clearly understand.  Worst of all it may even be designed so we don’t understand.

For example:  Prior to agreeing to begin the most toxic, dangerous, life sapping, medical treatment known to mankind, known as chemotherapy, most intelligent people usually ask, “Doctor, if I start on chemotherapy what are my chances?”

This is certainly a reasonable question communicated in the American language.  Under the circumstances the question deserves a clear, cogent, unambivalent answer in the language that we speak.It is my opinion that one of the rudest things a person can do when they understand the American language is to speak to you in a foreign tongue.

This is exactly what the orthodox drug medicine profession has gotten away with for 100 years.  It is dangerous to life’s decisions and even life itself.  It’s time we the people put an end to it.

Medical Qiqong – The Medicine of the Future

3 Treasures Healing - Learn Medical QiQong Healing with Lisa VanOstrandOn the February 15th, 2007 episode of the Oprah show, Dr. Mehmet Oz, a noted NY surgeon and healthcare advocate, sited energy medicine as the medicine of the future. Quoting from Dr. Oz, “The reason I’m so excited and passionate about alternative medicine is the globalization of medicine.” According to Dr. Oz, alternative medicines deal with the body’s energy, something that traditional Western medicine generally does not recognize.

Qigong

According to Jerry Alan Johnson, author of Chinese Medical Qigong Therapy, Qigong is a combination of two ideas: “Qi” (pronounced chee), which means air, breath
of life, or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe, and
“Gong (pronounced gung, as in lung), which means the skill of working with,
or cultivating, self-discipline and achievement. Together Qigong means the skill of cultivating vital energy, or the ability to work with the electromagnetic energy of the body. The body is enveloped by Qi (electromagnetic currents), which sustains life; it is present in every cell of the body and affects both internal and external organ functions.

Medical Qigong

Jerry Alan Johnson sites Medical Qigong as one of the four main branches of
Chinese medicine; the others are acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical
massage. Medical Qigong is the study of the energetic map of the body based on classical and alchemical Chinese medicine as well as more traditional Chinese medicine. Medical Qigong techniques can be practiced on oneself for self-cultivation or on others as healing protocols. Prescription exercises, meditations, and healing protocols enhance body, mind, and spirit, but they can also address the energetics of specific disease patterns. Healing occurs through balancing Qi and treating the client as a whole system.

Disease is caused by stagnation or blockage (energy not moving) and/or deficiency (not enough energy). The bottom line is that the client must remove the stagnation and take steps to ensure that stagnation does not return to the physical body, or any of the subtle bodies, where there are inherent weaknesses. The time needed to remove such blockages depends on how deep the pattern is, particularly if any form of disease has infiltrated the physical body and if the condition has existed for any length of time. The same line of reasoning applies to deficiency, where any deficient areas must be strengthened. Often times a deficiency and blockage occur at the same time. Therefore, the goal of all healing is not to just treat symptoms but to determine each client’s particular imbalances and find the root cause(s).

Self-practice is an important part of a client taking responsibility for their own healing process, and it speeds up the work performed by outside sources. Self-practice includes the following:

  • Meditation and spiritual practices in whatever spiritual path the client feels most inspired by. This assists clients in connecting to something larger than themselves and understanding their condition from a greater perspective of wholeness.
  • Dietary changes to assist in removing stagnation and giving support to any deficiencies.
  • Medical qigong exercises performed daily for particular conditions. These exercises combine the use of breath with individual physical movements, creative visualization, and intention. The primary goal is to purge toxic emotions from within the body’s tissues, eliminate energetic stagnation, as well as strengthen and balance the internal organs and energetic fields.

When working with outside sources:

  • Medical Qigong healing strives to balance the physical and subtle bodies and create new imprints. Healing can initiate changes at all levels: physical, energetic, emotional/mental, and spiritual. The experienced healer understands the relationship between the physical body and the subtle bodies as well as the interrelationship between elements, organs, meridians, chakras, and disease patterns.
  • In addition, Medical Qigong uses Personal Process Therapy to address psychological issues and clear the emotional/mental bodies. For example, physical illness can be the result of long-standing emotional suppression. It is also equally important to challenge limited or false belief systems and to have support for necessary lifestyle changes. In theory, body, mind, and spirit can be separated, but in experience, body-mind-spirit are different dimensions of the same human consciousness. Medical Qigong exercises, such as dry crying and beating the bag, are just two of the many ways that Medical Qigong practitioners work to resolve emotional issues.

Although miracles can and do happen, healing and transformation are generally hard work. When dis-ease is present, major changes are usually required at all levels (physical, energetic, emotional/mental, and spiritual), and each of these levels, other than the physical, can be considered as a subtle body or field that surrounds and penetrates the physical body. Medical Qigong provides one energetic healing modality for each one of us to reach our full potential.

Rejuvenating Ourselves through Circulating the Meridian Energy Flows by Lisa Vanostrand

3 Treasures Healing - Learn Medical QiQong Healing with Lisa VanOstrandby Lisa Vanostrand

RIVERS OF LIFE
Rejuvenating Ourselves through Circulating the Meridian Energy Flows

Ancient Daoist Theories taught the importance of circulating our energy for self-cultivation as well as for health, healing and longevity. Although many people are familiar with the chakra system, fewer people are familiar with the acupuncture meridian system to the extent that they can actually identify the energetic pathways. In Chinese Medicine, it is well known that disease can only be present when there is a disharmony in the meridian energy flow.  Excesses, meaning there is too much energy, may represent what we are drawn to. Deficiencies, meaning there is too little energy, might be things we want to avoid.

There are 12 primary meridians: lung, large intestine, stomach, spleen, heart, small intestine, bladder, kidney, pericardium, triple burner, gall bladder and liver. Although each meridian has its own pathway, they connect to each other and it is important to think of the meridians as one continuous flow of energy as well as hyperlinks that can jump nonlinearly from place to place.

Jeffery Yuen, an 88th generation Daoist priest and Dean of Academic Affairs for the Acupuncture Program at the Swedish Institute, views the meridians as roadmaps of our energy. They are a reflection of the way we are living our life.  We might like to inhabit certain meridians more than others.  Meridians connect us with different aspects of ourselves and our relationship with the world.

We can learn to assess the state of the meridians by first starting to massage them.  Dr. Stephen Thomas Chang, in “The Complete Book of Acupuncture”, states that massaging the meridians is absolutely invaluable in augmenting the energy within the body, providing for a constant and unimpeded flow of energy along the meridians, and will eventually rejuvenate not only an aging body but a fatigued mind as well.  You can use your thumb or the bridge of your hand to follow the meridian line in the direction of their normal flow.  You can find diagrams of the meridian flows on my website, www.3treasureshealing.com as well as many other books and websites on Chinese Medicine.  Massaging your meridians will also help develop your intuitive perceptions of your energy.  A famous quote by my Medical Qigong teacher, Jerry Alan Johnson, is that “you can only heal what you can feel.”

Once you feel comfortable at the physical level, you may want to move to a meridian meditation and energetically trace the meridians with your mind and intention.

According to Dr Chang, the philosopher Lao-Tzu purported lived anywhere from 160 to 500 years and faithfully practiced, and strongly advocated the practice of meridian meditation to his disciples.  

Rivers of Life is a 2 volume CD created by Lisa VanOstrand: The first volume is a guided meridian meditation.  The vocals are accompanied by the corresponding keys for each meridian. Meridian diagrams and explanations are included.  Volume 2 is the music for meridians.

Chinese Medicine & Medical Qigong

Performing Medical QiQong & Chinese Medicine in Miami and New YorkOn a recent Oprah show, Dr. Mehmet Oz, a noted NY surgeon and health care advocate, sited energy medicine as the medicine of the future. Quoting from Dr. Oz, “The reason I’m so excited and passionate about alternative medicine is (because it is) the globalization of medicine,” Alternative medicines, Dr. Oz noted, deal with the body’s energy, something that traditional Western medicine generally does not recognize. “We’re beginning now to understand things that we know in our hearts are true but we could never measure. As we get better at understanding how little we know about the body, we begin to realize that the next big frontier in medicine is energy medicine. It’s not the mechanistic part of the joints moving. It’s not the chemistry of our body. It is understanding for the first time how energy influences how we feel”.

Qigong

Qigong is a combination of two ideas: Qi” (pronounced chee), means air, breath of life, or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe and Gong” (pronounced gung, as in lung) means the skill of working with, or cultivating, self-discipline and achievement. Together, Qigong means the skill of cultivating vital energy, or the ability to work with the electromagnetic energy of the body. The body is enveloped by Qi or electromagnetic currents, affecting both internal and external organ functions. As Qi is the fundamental energy that sustains life, it is present in every cell of the body.

Medical Qigong

Medical qigong, is one of the four main branches of Chinese medicine along with acupuncture, herbal medicine, and medical massage. Medical Qigong is the study of the energetic map of the body based on classical and alchemical Chinese Medicine as well as more traditional Chinese Medicine. Medical Qigong techniques can be practiced on oneself for self-cultivation or on others as healing protocols. Prescription exercises, meditations and healing protocols, enhance body, mind and spirit and can also address the energetics of specific disease patterns.

Medical Qigong, healing occurs through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living creatures. Chinese medicine is a complete system of medicine that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole system. The goal of all healing is not to just treat symptoms but rather to determine each client’s particular imbalances with a goal on finding the root causes. In the future, diseases will be seen and worked with before they reach the physical body. This is true preventive medicine and a return to the ancient Chinese way where the doctor was paid only when the client was well.

When disease is present, major changes are usually required at all levels: physical, energetic, emotional/mental and spiritual. Each of these levels, other than the physical, can be considered as a subtle body or field that surrounds and inner penetrates the physical body. These subtle bodies and their effects have been duly noted by Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Chinese Medicine considers man to be a bridge between heaven and earth. As such, for each one of us to reach our full potential requires us to be at ease and free-flowing at all of these levels. Medical Qigong is an excellent energetic healing modality regardless of whether you are a client or a practitioner.
