Cancer, Qi, and Qigong Therapy: Seeking Research Collaboration
- The Cause of Cancer and Therapy: A New Perspective
By Moren Miao
Nowadays, cancer is still a disease that cannot be healed completely
through a conventional medical treatment. The reason is that people
haven¡¯t found the real origin of cancer. Here, I explain cancer in a
new perspective, and introduce the new way to treat cancer.
Two Causes of Diseases
According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, inside the
body, there is a network of main and collateral channels of paths
(Jing-luo). A kind of matter flows inside these channels, it is
called Yuan-Qi or Qi in Chinese, literally means original and primary
gas, ancient Chinese believe it is the source of vitality. The Qi
plays a very important role in the course of life. Smooth and
unobstructed of the channels is the precondition of healthiness,
because it¡¯s the precondition that Qi can flow freely inside it.
According to the traditional Chinese medicine, there are two types of
the origins of illness, one is that the Qi is first destroyed, and
then the flesh is destroyed, i.e. Qi wounds flesh (QWF); another type
is that the flesh is first destroyed, then the corresponding Qi is
destroyed, i.e. flesh wounds Qi (FWQ). (This viewpoint is expressed
in the ancient Chinese book: The Medical Classic of the Yellow
The Qi not only exists in human body, it exists in all creatures,
When an organism died, the body rotted soon, but the Qi inside the
body can separate from the body and survive independently for a
period, it contains energy and matter.
Once the survived Qi of the dead organisms comes into people¡¯s body,
the invaded Qi will block his body¡¯s network channels, the Qi of
himself can no longer flow freely. If the invaded Qi is very weak,
its structure will be destroyed and its energy and matter will be
absorbed by the body soon, so it cannot do harm to the body; but, if
the invaded Qi is not very weak, it will remain there and block the
channels, at the beginning, people may feel pain, numbness, tired or
petulant, after some time, the body will fall ill. According to
traditional Chinese medicine theory, Qi is the leading power of blood
circulation, if Qi cannot flow freely, blood cannot flow freely
either, so the immunity of the body decreased, the probability to
catch diseases increased
The Cause of Cancer
Cancer is the typical illness of QWF, caused by the invasion of the
survived Qi. The invaded Qi has its own structure and power, it is
not compatible with the structure of the body, it imposes an extra
force on the genes in the cell nucleolus, this extra force can cause
gene mutation, thus, the normal cells turn to cancer cells.
Of course, toxins and other factors can also cause cancer, but they
cannot explain all. The reason why people live in a very similar
environment and similar diet have different probability to catch
cancer can be explained by the invaded Qi. The role of toxins maybe
is mainly to decrease the immunity of the body, so when the Qi
invaded, the body's anti ability reduced, and more easily to fall
Nowadays, the chemotherapy and the radiation are usually used to deal
with cancer. The chemicals and the rays can only kill some cancer
cells, but they can do nothing to the invaded Qi, which causes the
cancer. Although some cancer cells are killed by chemicals or rays,
but the force that turns the normal cells to cancer cells is still
exist. Under the force of the invaded Qi, the normal cells become
cancer cells continuously. This is the reason why the chemotherapy
and the radiation cannot defeat cancer from the root.
An Experiment of Qi
People have got some evidences of the existence of Qi and its effect
to change the structure of gene. In the first quarter of 1987, the
High Energy Physics Institute of China Academy of Sciences did an
experiment. A Qigong practicer (Yan Xin) emit Qi to the solution of
DNA of calf thymus, after that, the absorbed value of characteristic
ultraviolet radiation of 257nm is significantly increased than the
control group, this means that the DNA¡¯s double helix structure is
destroyed, some hydrogen bonds are broken (Li Tipei, 2000). From this
result of the experiment, we can presume that the invaded Qi can
cause the gene mutation inside the body and incur cancer.
What Is Qi?
Though people know little about Qi from the perspective of
experimental sciences, but we know some characteristics of it, such
as it has no weight or very little weight, it is transparent, cannot
be seen by eye or detected by any existing equipments, can pass
through ordinary matter freely, rarely interact with ordinary matter.
From some characteristics of Qi, we can infer what it may be. I think
it is a kind of or a few kinds of very microcosmic matter, even more
microcosmic than the discovered elementary particles.
It may be a kind or kinds of ¡°dark matter¡± (or dark energy), about
which some particle physicists and astronomers are studying. Some
scientists believe in that the dark mater is tiny non-baryonic
particles, some kinds of neutrino. They call it the WIMPs (Weakly
Interacting Massive Particles). As some scientist described (David M.
Wittman, 2000), the characteristics of the proposed dark matter are
very in conformity with the characteristics of Qi, so we have reason
to infer that Qi may be dark matter.
In the ancient Chinese classic of Taoism, a kind of matter is
assumed, it was called Tao. Tao is described as no color, no odor, no
shape and no sound. Tao full of the universe, it exists before
everything and everything is formed by it (Laozi, 2000). The Greek
Milesian School philosopher Anaximander has a similar idea (John
Burnet, 1920). I assume that the Tao is just a kind of dark matter,
also the Qi.
Of course, what is Qi on earth, the final answer will only comes from
the discovery of physics. The day may be very near, but may also very
What Is Not Qi?
For people have many different explanations of Qi, some of them are
misleading, so it is necessary to say something about what is not Qi.
1. Psychological effect is not Qi. I had experienced the external Qi
other Qigong master emitted to me without informing me beforehand,
and I can also let others feel my external Qi without informing him
2. Field is not Qi. Some people think Qi is a kind of field, this is
wrong. For field cannot exist independently, such as magnetic field
depends on the magnet, electric field depends on electrons, gravity
field depends on the mass of matter. But Qi, instead, can exist
independently, so Qi is not field, but Qi may cause a filed.
3. Infrared is not Qi. Some people explain Qi by infrared, this is
not true. For infrared is only a form of energy, a kind of rays, it
cannot form a complicated structure, and cannot exist statically. But
Qi can, so Qi is not infrared.
4. Pure information is not Qi. Information cannot exist without any
carrier, all information transfer must depend on some kind of
carrier. Qi may contains some information, but it cannot be the pure
information without any material carrier, so Qi is a kind of positive
The Ways to Heal Cancer
Because caner is caused by the invasion of survived Qi from outside,
medicines can do little to the survived Qi, but there are some ways
to deal with it. If these ways combined with conventional therapy,
most cancer may be healed completely.
The first way is that some experienced Qigong practicers use their
power to help the cancer patient, to destroy and clean the invaded Qi
inside the patient¡¯s body, then the cancer may be defeated. But for
most Qigong practitioners, the method they usually use to cure is to
emit Qi to the patient, this power is limited and the effect may not
very well. But if the practitioners use their mental power let the
invaded Qi out of the patient¡¯s body, the effect will be very
The second way is to do the mental exercise of Qigong or Yoga by the
patients themselves, they can use their mental power to let the Qi in
the cancer position emit out of his body, or move to other part of
his body, if his mental power is strong enough, it can destroy the
invaded Qi, cancer may be healed. But, for a new practicer, the power
usually increases slowly, and the effect may not very significant.
The third way is that, if the patient has a religious belief, he can
pray with imagination, while praying, imagine god helping him cleaned
his body with water, cleaned the invaded dirty Qi in his cancer
position, then the cancer may be cured. But just as the second way,
the patient¡¯s mental power may not strong enough to clean the
These ways can be used together.
Conventional treatment is also necessary, for there are two aspects,
Qi and the existing cancer cell. Qigong can solve the problem of Qi,
but can do little directly to cancer cell. Drugs can kill cancer cell
directly, but can do nothing to invaded Qi. So, if the two means
combined together, most cancer can be cured completely.
In fact, I myself have practiced the exercise of Qigong since 1989.
In 1994, my friend¡¯s mother caught leukemia, physicians thought no
hope to be healed and at most can survive 2 months, she was 70 years
old. Under the desperation, they agreed me to help her with Qigong.
To the astonishing of both my friend and myself, she was healed after
three weeks. Another case is in Oct. 2003, a 31 years old male,
chronic leukemia of granular cells, after 3 days therapy (3 or 4
hours a day), his situation is becoming much better (some criteria
come down significantly in the test after 3 weeks of Qigong therapy,
no recent message after I came to USA).
Of course, these 2 cases may be only occasional, so I want to do more
experiments. This is the purpose I came to the U.S. Because in China,
especially during the recent four years, impacted by Fa-lun-gong, the
social environment for doing such research became much worse, some
scientists and officials regard Qigong as ¡°pseudoscience¡±, so it is
difficult to do such research in China nowadays. Therefore, I try to
find a chance to do such research and experiments in the U.S.
If any medical researcher has interest in do this research, please
