Extracts from the book "How Chinese Medicine Changed My Life" written by John Dolic (chapter - 'Qi Gong - Medicine of the Future')
A native graduate of traditional Chinese medicine, who later became my wife, at the time was skeptical of Qi Gong as a cancer treatment. As a medical student I was to have many lively discussions with her about it. Much later, I challenged her to prove that Qi Gong had no affect on cancer. She took up the challenge.
For three months she practiced Qi Gong with a group, who were being taught a special kind of walk (Xin Qi Gong or Guo Lin Qi Gong), a form favoured for its beneficial effects in the treatment of cancer and many chronic diseases. During those months she also questioned the participants about their diagnosis, prognosis and on-going progress.
As time past she was surprised by the results. She saw people, who at first could barely stand upright, begin to show signs of definite improvement within two or three months. The improvement, in some of these cases, was also confirmed by medical analysis. Consequently the "skeptic", all doubts removed, decided to do the advanced course and became one of the senior coaches of this style of Qi Gong.
