Page 2 - Medical Qigong Therapy & Surgery
Patients may sometimes be disillusioned about their own interpersonal relationship with their bodies' parts, and tend to disconnect from their own energetic attachments to their bodies tissues out of fear and survival instinct. It is important for the Qigong doctor to help the patient to get in touch with the suppressed feelings of loss surrounding the tissues which will soon be operated on (the process of grieving, letting go, and closure). This is because surgery represents the death of a relationship with part of the self. Although the relationship that the patient has with the diseased organ is not considered a healthy one, it exists, nevertheless. Allowing the patient to deny his or her true feelings related to the surgery and loss of tissue attachment will only compound the healing process, and may in turn cause increased scar tissue formation, as well as certain disease formations to return (tumors, cancer, etc.). Therefore, each organ and tissue area is "briefed "as to what it is about to undergo.
Sometimes, after surgery, the patient will experience feelings of loss, grief and depression relating to the surgery (often a reaction to the anesthesia). It is important that these feelings be experienced and expressed before the surgery during the times of preoperative Therapy. After the surgery, the patient may then experience feelings of relief and gratitude about the new changes in his or her body.
To prepare for surgery, the patients are generally given Medical Qigong meditations and prescriptions that strengthen the Lower Dantian, Kidneys and Mingmen areas. One or several sessions may be specifically devoted to allowing the patient to connect with the diseased organ(s), as well as the regions that are to be operated on. An atonement with the Divine is initiated in order to assist the patient in relinquishing control, and for the removal of any and all energetic armor surrounding the diseased area (and the subsequent release of emotions associated with this armoring). The patient is then encouraged to disconnect any energetic attachments that the diseased tissues have formed with the surrounding cells, facilitating a final closure. This allows for an easier transition, as the patient's body must completely release the diseased tissues during surgery.
Just before surgery, the patients are given a meditation and encouraged to imagine a Divine White Light Energy submerging and enveloping the regions of their bodies which are to be operated on. The Lower and Middle Dantians, as well as the areas which will soon be operated on, should also be energized. In addition, the Liver should also be energized in order to make sure that the blood coagulates properly during the surgery.
Using Medical Qigong for Anesthesia
According to research of Western Surgeries (presented at the Second International Symposium on Memory and Awareness in 1992), patients who undergo anesthesia may be aware of both the pain and conversations within the Operating Room. Many kinds of drugs used to supplement anesthesia, such as neuromuscular blocking agents, paralyze all the muscles in the body but do not affect the central nervous system and consciousness. During surgery patients have been observed flinching, twitching and making other facial expressions. Many patients later can give an accurate account of the surgery procedure and conversations between the doctors and nurses in detail. Even when unconscious, a part of the patient (whether energetically inside or outside of his or her body, can record, see and remember everything.
Qigong emitted during surgery, however, reduces pain and wound shock, calms the patient's spirit and leads to faster recovery. It also reduces postoperative complications such as respiratory tract infection, functional disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, retention of urine, etc.
