Chinese medicine is becoming more and more popular in the western world with each passing year. Chinese medicine is expanding into the alternative treatments used in North America even more with qigong.
Modern scientific research is now catching up the ancient health sciences of Tai Chi & Qigong. Given that most of our illness is caused by stress, the potential benefits that these ancient solutions offer our lives is increasingly important for everyone to know about.
Western medical science is only beginning to understand what T’ai Chi and Qigong offers us. However, just the tiny amount of research that has been done so far indicates that T’ai Chi and Qigong are very powerful health tools that can save each of us and our society a great deal of money and personal suffering.
Tai Chi & Qigong have been proven over many centuries, including in emerging modern medical research to be powerful stress reduction technologies. The results of this are found in studies like the one at UCLA indicating that Tai Chi practitioners doubled their immune resistance to viral infection. Many studies also show Tai Chi can provide cardiovascular benefit, lowering high blood pressure, and providing an effective gentle rehabilitation therapy for those with heart disease.
