Evidence of Qi-gong energy and its biological effect on the enhancement of the phagocytic activity of human polymorphonuclear leukocytes.

In order to test for an effect of phosphate buffered saline (PBS) treated externally with Qi
energy ("Qi-treated" PBS) on the phagocytic activity of human polymorphonuclear
leukocytes (PMNs), rigorously controlled experiments employing masking and
randomized procedures were carried out under independent monitoring. In all experiments,
Qi treatment was externally applied under monitoring to newly purchased unopened 100
ml bottles of PBS, and the PMN phagocytic activity was assayed by one experimenter in
masked, randomized and monitored conditions using a highly sensitive
chemiluminescence method. Phagocytic activity data were obtained in triplicate for each
sample and then statistically analyzed. The PBS samples Qi-treated by the Qi-gong master
and by one of the Qi-gong trainees showed clear stimulation of PMN phagocytic activity
which was significant statistically, and this phenomenon was highly reproducible. Out of
10 experiments by the Qi-gong master, only twice did Qi-treatment fail to influence the
PBS. The activity of Qi-treated PBS decayed over days or weeks. Furthermore, it was
found that Qi-treated PBS had decreased phagocytic stimulatory activity after microwave
treatment, but not after autoclave treatment. We also demonstrated that microwave
irradiation and infrared laser pulse irradiation have similar effects on PBS as Qi-treatment.
The results obtained in this experiment provide evidence of the existence of Qi energy, its
ability to influence an electrolyte solution and its biological effect. Furthermore, microwave
or infrared laser pulse treatment was found to partly mimic the Qi-treatment of PBS.
