Thanks to a blog reader [Lori], I recently learned about another person who has recovered from Parkinson’s. Her name is Bianca Molle. Bianca tells her story in an interview with Lilou. She was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in April, 2008 and by 2011 she was symptom free. She attributes her recovery primarily to a dedicated Qigong regimen. She says that she practiced Qigong for three hours a day.
After being diagnosed, Bianca set about doing research and she learned that movement was critical to managing and potentially overcoming Parkinson’s and that Qigong was the best way to practice movement because it also helps develop chi. She contacted The Chi Centre in Petaluma, California, USA, and under the guidance of Mingtong, began her Qigong practice.
If you read the blog I posted several months ago, you’ll know that Qigong is about developing ‘chi’ or vital force energy, the energy that is essential to life itself. A strong chi, along with a good attitude, healthy diet, detoxification, exercise, stress reduction, bodywork and spiritual practice [which also aid in chi development], is essential for returning the body to homeostasis so that healing can take place. And as Bianca Molle discovered, you can’t do too much Qigong.
She started seeing benefits from her very first Qigong session in 2009, as the pain she had been experiencing quickly subsided, and even more remarkably, she was able to get off all medication in only 6 to 7 weeks. Bianca shares her story through her website [mettamorphix.com] and she now teaches Qigong.
Have an awesomely energetic day!
