What's in the Current Winter 2018-2019 Issue?


An Integrative Approach to Cancer: Conventional Medicine and Qigong

By John Dixon: This article discusses whether the traditional Chinese exercise system known as Qigong (Chi Kung) can be used in an integrative approach alongside conventional medicine in the treatment of cancer. Three case study examples of qigong practitioners who survived cancer by combining regular qigong practice with either radiotherapy, chemotherapy or surgery. These accounts are taken from published books. The article concludes with a review of one research article which studied the effects of a 10-week Qigong program on cancer sufferers.


T'ai Chi for Depression

By Dr. Aihan Kuhn, CMD, OBT: Depression is a major health hazard affecting many people's lives all around the world. In the United States about fifty-four million people experience some type of mental disorder each year. That is one in five Americans. Some can control depression with medication, but others may continue to have a poor quality of life even with medication. Dr. Kuhn has had excellent success healing illness with natural medicine and Chinese exercise, including depression.


Five Animal Frolics in Taiwan: Nourishing Health on a Beautiful Island

By Michael A. DeMarco, M.A.: Lions, and tigers, and bears...Oh my! -- This famous quote from the 1939 movie classic The Wizard of Oz is a very fitting response when one first sees the Five Animal Frolics (wuqinxi) being practiced in Taiwan. This system of exercise - said to be the earliest form of medical qigong - is based primarily on the movements of five animals: the ape, bear, crane, deer, and tiger. A famed Chinese physician, Hua Tuo, is credited for developing these exercises around 200 C.E. by observing animals and applying his knowledge of anatomy, acupuncture, moxibustion, and medicine.


A Daoist Practice Journal, Book 3

By Shifu Michael Rinaldini: The third book in a series on the practices for walking the Daoist (Taoist) path by a modern day, western Daoist priest. The following entries are from this book-in-progress, which will be completed by the end of 2018.



Departments include "Integrating a Qigong Practice into the Western Life" by Michael Holland; "2019: The Year of the Earth Pig" by Steven Luo; "Negative Energy in the Workplace—A Feng Shui Perspective" by Charles Shabar; "The Body Says Much To Those Who Listen" by Lauri Amidon; as well as news and cultural tidbits. We hope you enjoy this, our 112th consecutive issue.
