Healing Good News for Arthritis

A mighty ocean is made up of drops of water. A great healing chi-field is made up of individual healing stories. Every healing story is a story of love --the love of oneself and others through ups and downs. Every healing story is a story of  triumph -- the triumph of one's spirit over one's temporarily setback. Life is no guarantee. We love life as it comes.  

 Last November I celebrated 3 years of pain free arthritis resolution

Larry James

Columbus, Ohio: 

What will help you the most is indeed chil-lel, but impatience will not help at all. I know , it is easy for me to say that. If your health is indeed improving then congratulations and continued success in your healings. The chi goes where it knows. It is only a matter of time before the chi and your wishes may be the same. I wanted to rid myself of arthritis and the chi started re-growing hair on my head. I was perturbed shall we say but soon afterwards I discovered that the arthritis wasn't keeping me awake most of the night with pain. Last November I celebrated 3 years of pain free arthritis resolution.
Do not forget that we seldom get what we ask for, but instead get a mixed bag of other blessings. Let time and practice be on your side and other good things will happen to you and one day it could well be that the diabetes will be gone.
With healing chi to all


You can understand why I don't miss a day of Chi-Lel qigong...

Yes, originally 40 pounds. However when I got down to 163 (weighed 203 at my

annual physical examination in July 1998) I started lifting weights 3 x week

and now average around 169 (more during holidays and vacations and less when

I am home and can keep to my routine). Yes, my arthritis disappeared as well.

I attribute these gains to wall squatting since I have been doing the Zhineng

Qigong since 1993, but it wasn't until I met Luke in December 1998 and he

introduced wall squatting that I got these benefits. Also, since 1981 I've

had problems with skin cancer. Going every 3 months to be checked and having

suspicious places frozen with Liquid Nitrogen and having at least one biopsy

per visit. I guess I have surgery at least 30 times since then for basal

cell, squamous cell, and melanoma cancers. However, at my last visit to the

Dermatologist (about six months ago, since my next appointment is 4/17) he

looked at his records and said I had not had a biopsy in two years and went

from 3 month to 6 month check ups. Also, at my last visit to Ophthalmologist

about 3 years ago, since I go every 3 years and next appointment is this

June, he decreased my eyeglass prescription which had been increased every 3

years since 1956. You can understand why I don't miss a day of Chi-Lel qigong.

The other wall squat story that I thought he may have referred to, was

when I demonstrated 100 wall squats using Tape 3A for my class. When I

finished and Luke's voice on the tape said "Congratulations!", I turned

around to the applause of my class. I told them, "If you want 100 wall squats

to seem effortless, do 200 the previous day." Luke liked that so much he

added it to my listing on the Directory of Teachers.




The Chinese Experience from "101 Miracles of Natural Healing"


My Aunt Saved Me

Ms. Wang became sick when she was thirty-eight years old. She had low blood pressure, and a slow heart rate of forty beats per minute. Because her heart wasn't supplying enough oxygen to her brain, she was dizzy most of the time and tended to faint easily. In addition, she couldn't squat down or bear the touch of cold water because of arthritis in her joints. In short, her life was miserable.

"I was angry at myself and the world. Why me? I would lay awake at night feeling frustrated. There was nothing I could do to alleviate my pain except to take more and more drugs."

"Nothing you could do? With so many people exercising in the parks, why didn't you join them?"

"It might seem strange to you, but I was trapped in my own small world, thinking my illnesses were unique to me. When the doctors told me that I should have plenty of rest and take medicine on a regular basis, I followed their advice faithfully. Exercising, even gently, would rob me of my resting time—I wanted to live!"

"So why did you change your mind and seek an alternative way of healing yourself after fifteen years of taking medication?"

"My aunt opened my mind. When she was first diagnosed with liver cancer, I felt sorry for her. But then only a few months later, I was surprised to see my aunt. Instead of a skeleton lying in a hospital bed as I had last seen her, she was a healthy, spirited and much younger looking person. Her secret? ChiLel. 'Niece, why don't you learn a self-healing art? You have suffered enough,' she said, embracing me.

"Witnessing my aunt's recovery made my illnesses not seem so untouchable anymore. So, in my uncle's company, I came to the Center last month. Once at the Center, I felt as though I belonged here. All eyes seemed to tell me that they understood. In fact, many of us who had once floundered helplessly on the sea now were being saved by this ship.

"With hope and newfound faith, I began to do the opposite of standard doctors' advice: 'get plenty of rest.' Pampering my illnesses no more, I did ChiLel until I was exhausted and then continued. No more drugs for me! I would rather die here with dignity than die slowly at home.

"With such determination, I made great progress in a short time. After a month, my blood pressure increased to 80/120 and an EKG showed a normally functioning heart. Not only are there are no more swellings in my joints, but I can eat and sleep well. I feel great!"

Ms. Wang smiled broadly. For her, life was more precious now than ever. Having once lost her health, she had found it again!
