Qigong has proven an effective treatment for inhibiting or destroying leukemia cells in mice and certain other types of human cancer cells. The studies here fall into two broad classes: in vitro and in vivo studies.

Typically, the in-vitro studies involved randomly dividing the laboratory-prepared cancer cell cultures into different groups, with one group being treated with external Qigong, plus one or more control groups that did not receive any Qigong treatment. Sometimes, one group was treated by sham Qigong for the same amount of time as the group receiving authentic Qigong treatment. The types of cancer cells included human breast cancer cell lines, erythroleukemia (K562), promyelocytic leukemia, nasopharynglioma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma (CNE-2), SGC-7901 gastric adenocarcinoma, the spleen cells of mice, lung tumor cell lines (LA-795), and more. Most of the studies demonstrated the inhibitory effect of Qigong on the growth of these cancer cells in comparison with the control groups and sham-treated groups.

A team of researchers led by Zonglian Hu at the Cancer Research Center of Nan-Jing Yang-Gong 81 Hospital in China incubated fresh HL-60 cells in short-term suspension cultures in the presence of external Qigong. The results indicated that terminal granulocytic differentiation of only promyelocytic leukemia cells is induced by qigong therapy, and this effect did not appear in the control group. This means that the Qigong treatment disrupted the leukemia cells, causing their death.*

In vivo studies include a study by Feng, et al, who investigated the inhibitory effects of Qigong on leukemia L1210 cells and sarcoma cells in mice. Feng Lida and her colleagues at the China Immunology Research Center were the first to conduct studies on the effects of emitted Chi by Qigong on human carcinoma cells. They used various techniques for tissue culture, cytogenetics, and electron microscopy to study the effect of External Qigong on the Hale cells and the SGC-7901 line of human gastric adenocarcinoma cells. They repeated the Hale cells experiment 20 times under the identical conditions (treatment sample exposed to External Qigong for 20 minutes), and found that the survival rate of the Hale cells in the Qigong group was an average 69.3% to that of control group, that is, 30.7% of the cells were killed in the 20 minutes of exposure to external Qi. The electron microscope showed that degeneration and swelling took place in some of the cells exposed to emitted Chi.

The experiment with human gastric adenocarcinoma cells was repeated 41 times under the same condition (1 hour exposure to Emitted Qi by Qigong), in which the average survival rate of the cancer cells was 74.9% of that in the control, that is to say, the average destruction rate was 25.1%. The total abnormality rate of the chromosomes in the Qigong group (5.39%) was significantly higher than that of the control group (1.40%) ).

In other words, approximately 25-31% of the cancer cells in this study were killed outright by Qigong. In addition, Qigong disrupted the genetic code of the cancer cells at a rate almost 4 times of that of the control group.** © 2010 Keith E. Hall and www.inner-tranquility.com. All rights reserved.
