I was wondering what practices have been found useful by people diagnosed with cancer, in terms of strengthening their energy level.
Is anyone here a cancer survivor, and has used any of the forms in the Deep Healing series? What are your experiences?
My 15-year old nephew has just been diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma cancer. Any tips or advice on what would be useful for him would be appreciated.

Hodgkin Lymphoma should be treated by dispersing toxic heat, blood stagnation,toxins etc. Common symptoms are night sweats, coughing swelling of neck and head, stomach pain, back pain, low t cell count.
I have worked in several clinics and taught a Cancer program at Gildas Club and have had success with several of the following practices:
1. Guolin Qigong: Is a walking practice that is for cancer recovery and is ideal for this kind of cancer, it was developed by a Cancer Survivor. Here is one link on a demonstation that can be useful: http://www.healthyfoundations.com/guolin/guolin_video.html
2. Six healing Sounds is effective for releasing toxic heat. Helps regain a balance organ system making the body run more even; not too hot; not too cold.
3. Primordial Qigong is a great practice for immune system and clearing toxic heat..I have had success utilizing this for immune disorders and MS and ALS students, so effective that they hardly have a issue anymore.
4. Standing Qigong practices: Probaly the most under estimated practice for nourishing the body mind. This will boost his t cell count disperse blockages, heat and various imbalances. When i teach public classes I always have my students develop a foundation in this system.
When someone works with Qigong with cancer, flexibility is a key to their recovery and variety. All the Tao practices are great for a variety of lifestyle challenges. I might add that basic meditation, such as awareness practices and inner smile will also add in his well being. I am sure that deep healing qigong fall right in line with the above mentioned I have not personally done this style or have had cancer recovery practitioners try it to see what results have manifested.
Good luck to you..SnowlionNovember 24, 2008 at 5:31 am #29667
