Empty Vs Real Illness

by Marcus on January 26, 2011

Western medicine has a great record of treating illnesses that are ‘Solid’ or real, i.e. where the cause of the illness is obvious. E.g. Bacterial attack.

Unfortunately western medicine is not so brilliant at treating ‘Apparent’ or empty illness. An empty illness is where the cause and/or symptoms are not clear, we cannot define the site of the illness and the cause, or site of the illness is not clear.

It is in the treatment of empty illness that Qigong really shines. During energy flow your qi will naturally flow to areas of low energy, or blockages and do whatever work needs to be done to restore harmonious energy flow or health. Qi does the work, we don’t have to. We just have to get out of the way so it can do the work!
