Welcome to article 4 of 8 on cancer
In this article, I’m focussing on some physical aspects of cancer.
But first, welcome to 2016. I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable break over the festive season.
We had the great pleasure of hosting our three grandkids from Darwin and it was sad to see them go after 10 days of fun and excitement 🙁
For the first time in many years, this year I didn’t write down a whole lot of New Year resolutions. Instead, I have just one – to be the very best version of me that I can possibly be.
For me, that includes fitness, health, happiness, wealth & relationships and helping others to achieve that too. It’s going to be an awesome year and I look forward to sharing it with you.
OK, back to the series on cancer that I started late last year. So far we’ve talked about due diligence, the placebo/nocebo effects and the role of diet. This time we’ll be looking at what happens when things in the body are prevented from flowing as normal.
Let me start with a story:
In 1994 I was a member of The Whole Health Institute. The WHI comprised of doctors, physios, chiros, masseurs and other natural healing modalities. Its Journal was the ‘Healing Currents’.
One day I discovered an online article about the ‘world’s largest medicine-less hospital’ and forwarded it to the WHI secretary for possible publication.
The article was about how Zhineng Qigong was being used to heal patients, many of whom had been sent home to die by allopathic doctors. Terminal patients with all types of late-stage chronic degenerative diseases, including cancer.
94.96% success rate in over 300,000 patients
Over the years the Hospital treated more than 300,000 patients with 180 different diseases and achieved an overall effectiveness rate of 94.96%.
Yes, your read right – nearly 95% success rate. If you want to read about the 5-year survival rate of chemotherapy (2.3% in Australia & 2.1% in U.S.) check out this PubMed article
The hospital, near Beijing, was started by Professor Pang Ming who was both a medical doctor and a traditional Chinese doctor. It had 10,000 ‘students’ at any one time and 23 medical doctors on staff but no pharmacists because drugs were not used.
The doctors’ only role was to diagnose on admission and discharge. It was closed in 2001 for ‘political’ reasons.
The secretary of WHI, herself a medical doctor, was Chinese so the article captured her imagination. So much so that she ruled off time from her surgery and visited the hospital to learn more about it.
When she returned she confirmed the claims in the article. So she contacted her cancer patients inviting them to her home on a Sunday morning to teach them how to get well. As friends, Marlyse and I were privileged to be there along with 10 or 12 others.
Success where Western medicine had failed
Think about that! 95% effectiveness rate for hopeless cases with no drugs, chemo, radiation or surgery. It succeeded after all those had failed.
Diet wasn’t even a consideration. Just simple, consistent exercises and working with energy. What’s that all about, placebo? Maybe, but 95%?
Qigong is all about the flow of energy in the body. That energy is called Qi and when it’s blocked congestion/dis-ease sets in. Here’s a link to a 9-minute Zhineng Qigong video: Zhineng Qigong level 1 video
Patients (called students because they were there to learn how to be well) who were too sick to stand could practice sitting or lying down and it still worked. Here’s a link to a website giving more details: Zhineng Qigong
Chinese medicine has a 5,000-year history and even allopathic medicine has embraced the concept of meridians – acupuncture is now an approved modality for medical doctors.
Qigong is one of many ways to balance your energetic system. Here’s another way that’s incredibly effective and growing in popularity: 7 minute intro video to EFT

Finally here’s a link to a remarkable book: Dressed to Kill
It’s called ‘Dressed to Kill – The link between breast cancer and bras’ by Medical Anthropologists Sydney Ross Singer and his wife Soma Grismaijer.
In a nutshell, Sydney & Soma discovered that anything which restricts the flow of lymphatic fluid in the body tends to create stasis leading to possible pathological conditions.
It’s a fascinating, well-researched book that shares how Soma resolved a breast lump through changes in lifestyle – removing her bra was one of them.
Talking of the lymphatic system one of the best investments you can make is a rebounder or mini trampoline. NASA has endorsed this as a safe and effective exercise that is even more effective than running.
I bought my first one in 1987 and finally retired it in 2015. I got my second one for my 74th birthday last November and use it every day.
For seniors, it’s probably the safest and certainly one of the most enjoyable (read fun) exercises you can do. And maybe one of the best anti-ageing things you can do for yourself.
OK, enough on the physical aspects of cancer. Yet to come are the spiritual, emotional and environmental aspects. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy a year filled with an ever increasing abundance of health, happiness, love, success and prosperity.
Until next time.
