Qigong for Gentle Practices to Increase Energy, Restore Health, and Relax the Mind
In this article I’d like to share with you some powerful insights about a very powerful self-healing tool that is in my opinion, the best anti-aging strategy you can employ to increase your energy, supercharge your immune system, develop inner peace and enhance longevity – Qigong.
Qigong has a strong body of clinical and experimental proof. Perhaps the most important benefit of Qigong lies in its ability to profoundly reduce stress in the body-mind system. Persistent stress creates physical and mental tension, leading to a host of illnesses and disease. The practice of Qigong teaches you to deal intelligently with stress, harness deep, inner calm and peace whilst keeping the body relaxed, supple and strong.
It strengthens the heart muscle and increases the amount of blood flow circulating around the body. As a result, more oxygen can be delivered to the tissues allowing a better detoxification. Good circulation is very important for healthy brain functioning. Did you know that the brain utilizes 20 percent of all available oxygen of your body? For this reason, a deficiency of oxygenated blood can expose you to migraines, headaches and also mood swings. This also explains why it helps with memory and retards senility.
There are scientific studies that show how Qigong exercises can lower high blood pressure and heart rate. I believe that the relaxation and abdominal breathing causes the blood vessels to relax, which can be the cause for a blood pressure reduction in combination with the relaxation effect.
How Qigong Can Improve Your Body
Another area you can improve with Qigong exercises is your Digestive System. For example, abdominal breathing stimulates and massages your digestive organs. I have also experienced that it improves appetite. I’ve observed an increased production of saliva during and after my Qigong practice. Qigong also stimulates hydrochloric acid production in the stomach, so that optimal levels are maintained with advanced age.
Did you know that reduced hydrochloric acid levels and bad digestion are the classical signs of aging? Qigong also helps strengthen the muscles that push food through the alimentary canal. Aside from improving the heart, circulatory and digestive system, there is also evidence that Qigong can improve brain function. There is evidence that Qigong slows down brain waves from the beta, which is the state when we are fully conscious and active, to alpha or even slower. The alpha state is a state of relaxed concentration during a typical meditation.
Another most important benefit of Qigong is the positive effect it has on the immune system. My personal experience for the last 23 years is that I hardly have sick days since I have been practicing Qigong. There is a lot of evidence of the immune-enhancing effects coming from cancer research in China, where it is commonly prescribed as an adjunct to chemotherapy and radiation.
And finally, the emotional effect of Qigong is as important as the energetic effect. Also, by practicing this traditional healing exercise, the patient can feel more empowered by being able to do something for themselves. Numerous studies have shown that self-empowered patients have a more positive mindset and recover faster from any kind of disease.
Qigong: A Holistic Approach to Wellbeing
After learning all these amazing health benefits, it is not surprising that Qigong is in fact an excellent anti-aging tool. We all know that nobody can change our chronological age, but there is a way to improve many of the biomarkers of aging, or in other words, slowing down or even reversing our biological or functional age. Your major biomarkers of aging are blood pressure, cholesterol levels, kidney function, vision and hearing, bone density, muscle strength, immune function and many more. Qigong can definitely help you to reverse your biological age.
