Since my lecture on Mind Power Medical Science (MPMS) was broadcasted in Phoenix Television's Century Lecture Theatre Program, numerous questions have been raised. These include whether MPMS is rejecting past Qigong therapy and whether MPMS is simply Qigong repackaged, which is no different from other conventional Qigong therapy. With these misunderstanding, it is necessary for me to clarify the similarity & differences between MPMS & medical Qigong.
It is no doubt that MPMS is closely related to my decades' Taoist Qigong practice & research in Qigong rehabilitation in the past 20 years. In 1988 I invented and developed China Taiji Five Elements Qigong (CTFEQ) for curing chronic illnesses and in 1993 shifted its focus to curing cancer. Since then, thousands of cancer patients have adopted CTFEQ as a basic rehabilitation tool and numerous such patients already given up by hospitals have achieved genuine recovery without other forms of treatments. It is evident that CTFEQ has met the challenge of medical effectiveness in these years.
Throughout the above period of curing cancer and various chronic illnesses, we gradually realize that by just relying on practising particular type of Qigong is far from sufficient.
To achieve genuine recovery from illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and other unusual illnesses, the patients' own mindset and views on health, sicknesses, medication all need to be changed. It is particularly important for them to have proper perspectives on life and living, without the former, the latter cannot be achieved properly.
Moreover, they need to understand the root of their illnesses before genuine recovery can be achieved. Many of them get sick continually, fail to recover with symptoms re-emerge from time to time primarily because their own behavior and life style have violated the rule of life.
Many of these patients have experienced emotional disturbances such as sadness, suppression and distortion of mind. Prolonged working overtime, insufficient sleep and rest, excessive dining, pressure from work, endless pursuit of fame and wealth etc, typically feature their life style. Psychological distortions are usually resulted when these desires cannot be satisfied and eventually lead to health deteriation and sickness. Apart from the above, we also observe that these patients' perspectives on illnesses and health are usually improper and traditional, which make them becoming emotionally depressed when getting sick.
If these problems are not resolved, it is pointless to discuss genuine recovery. Qigong practice by the patients or Qi treatment by Qigong masters is far from sufficient despite illnesses can be alleviated partially through Qigong self-practice or Qi treatment by Qigong masters. Without eliminating the ‘root causes’ of illnesses, genuine recovery is out of the questions.
Therefore since 1995, we have formally elevated China Taiji Five Elements Qigong (CTFEQ) to Taiji Five Elements Self Recovery Program (TFESRP) based on analysis of various clinical phenomenons. TFESRP is composed of four core elements which include firstly, adjustment of patients' mindset, secondly, intensive Qigong self practice, thirdly, regular short and prolonged periods of fasting and fourthly, rectification of character and behavior of sick patient that have caused illness. These four elements combined can accelerate the generation of self-healing ability and immunity; improve internal physical health environment so that patients with cancer or other chronic and serious illnesses are able to achieve recovery.
After highlighting the patients' own behavior and character as the critical factors for recovery and transforming CTFEQ from merely Qigong practice by patients and Qi treatment by Qigong masters to TFESRP with four core elements, satisfactory medication results have been achieved.
In March 2000, I immigrated to the United States and established the World Institute for Self Healing (WISH). Since then WISH started the promotion of Taiji Five Elements Self Recovery Program and research on human mind power plus self-healing ability in America formally.
During this period in the US, I have collaborated with US scientists on various researches. With the completion of basic and clinical experiments on using mind power to hypnotize little white mice, to change the wave length and direction of laser beams, to alter the structure of protein molecules, to prohibit and to promote the growth of AIDS virus, to prohibit breast cancer genes and remove breast tumor and cancer, to reconnect broken bones etc., we have achieved more and clearer understanding on human mind power.
In particular after going through clinical research on “placebo effect” in various parts of the world, I firmly believe that human mind power is the core and best means in generating human self healing ability. It is also the safest and most effective medical tool for curing various illnesses. The unbelievable effect of “placebo effect” is inseparable from the patients’ firm belief in having received the most effective medication that will lead to full recovery. Therefore, “placebo effect” is precisely a result of the patients' own mind power.
In August 2004, I presented a paper titled “ Mind Power Adjustment — Managing Self Healing Power is the Core Route for Curing Human Illnesses ” in the World Medical Qigong Summit Seminar held in Washington and I proposed this brand new concept of Mind Power Medical Science for the first time.
After almost 20 years of laborious exploration, China Taiji Five Elements Qigong has gradually completed the theoretical formation for curing various illnesses and has entered a third phase of development. It was transformed to Taiji Five Elements Self Recovery Program and now enters the new stage of Mind Power Medical Science.
Mind Power Medical Science is consisted of two main components: theory and practice. The theoretical part is composed of 4 systems as follows:
Mind Power Medical Science's illness view
Mind Power Medical Science's medical view
Mind Power Medical Science's health view
Mind Power Medical Science's rehabilitation view
These four systems elaborate Mind Power Medical Science's new perspectives on illness, medication and recovery in details. They propose new concepts to explore answers for critical questions such as how illnesses are caused, how to deal with illnesses, how to achieve recovery and why contemporary medical science has wrongly classified illnesses as enemies of human health?
The practical part is divided into 2 systems as follows:
1.Qigong Self Practice. This enable patients improve the internal condition of their body on a macro basis, initiate and mobilize immunity, self-healing and revitalizing abilities to achieve recovery for various chronic, unusual and serious illnesses.
2. Mind Power Self-Adjustment. This requires patients use their own mind power to communicate with the sick and uncomfortable parts in their bodies, command and instruct alleviation and normalization of such parts to achieve genuine recovery.
