Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes

Visit Tutorial Page ( Report)
Andy Wright has put together a nine move set, with all the moves benefiting the condition of diabetes. He has researched the best of the best and has created this FREE set of qigong exercises based upon the underlying reasons of good Qi flow. Most times the body has good energy flow. When a blockage occurs the real world result is an illness. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms appear the said problem has manifested to such a point that the body's reaction is significant. If people practised Qigong regularly there is possibility that illnesses can be minimised. Once physical signs have begun it is not impossible to recover, it just may take a while longer. Diabetes has many real world causes other than the standard blocked energy which is only an outward manifestation. For example, the person's lifestyle choices (e.g. a sugar rich diet with no exercise) CAN contribute to the overall condition the body manifests. Qigong is brilliant but it is not a miracle worker. It is merely a tool to maintaining good health and to prevent and improve your health; HOWEVER you may need to improve other aspects of your life such as increasing exercise (where Qigong can help) and changing the diet (removing toxic additives and sugar / processed products).
  • Welcome to Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes
    • Welcome

      In this first lecture you can meet the course tutor and designer, Andy Wright. You'll see and hear about his life and work, with testimonials from real people/students (he teaches classes daily as well as on line). His work encompasses teaching in NHS hospitals as well as Sport Centres and for charitable organisations such as Parkinson Society and MS Society.

    • What is Diabetes?

      In this lecture you will learn about the causes and symptoms of diabetes, a debilitating illness that, for type 2, can be partially prevented and also cured with simple lifestyle changes and the practice of Qigong.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement One

      Movement One : Start in wuji stance. Relax your body and mind. Feel the feet connect to the Earth. Keep your head up, as if supported by a string attached to the crown. As your hips rotate from side to side more rapidly, allow the arms to swing higher so that one arm will strike the lower back area and the other will strike the shoulder or chest.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Two
    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Three

      Movement Three: The next move is a side stretch. The distance you lean sideways is irrelevant and unimportant. The main point of this move is the stretch along the side of the body on one side, and the compression on the other.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Four

      Movement Four: This next move activates the bladder and indirectly the kidney meridians. These are water element organs and have an overall effect in combating the diabetes symptoms, improving their efficiency in cleansing the systems of the toxins that will build up.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Five

      Movement Five: This movement is called shooting arrows and is effectively improving the lung meridian energy. It has a TCM action of improving the transfer of oxygen into the blood stream which in turn helps with the removal of toxins. The lung meridian runs down the arm from the chest points, to the thumb. The paired organ is the large intestine, this runs the the first finger.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Six

      Movement Six: This movement focuses on the kidney and bladder meridians by drawing energy into the kidneys, located in the lower back. Then, just as with the natural processes of the body, the movement shifts the negative energy downward through the bladder channel and into the Earth. The movement is completed by drawing energy up the kidney meridian, located on the inside aspect of the legs.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Seven

      Movement Seven: This movement focuses upon the Earth element organs of spleen and stomach. Both are considerably affected with diabetes, and as a general rule their energies are in need of a boost.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Eight

      Movement Eight: This is known as BEAR RUBBING TUMMY, and aptly describes the actions. It is working on the main intestinal organs, bladder, stomach, liver, spleen, intestines, gallbladder, etcetera. It is extremely effective for IBS and also controlling constipation and diarrhoea, depending upon the direction you move your hands.

    • Chi Kung (Qigong) for Diabetes: Movement Nine

      Movement Eight: This is the closing move of our set. Standing in wuji, draw both hands to the sides, palms turned out and up.
