Share Article

Dr. Qizhi Gao teaches an online course of breathing exercises that help people lose weight.

Bigu Qigong is an exercise that harmonizes the mind and breath to achieve hunger control.

A new book reveals the ancient Chinese secret of optimum weight control through Bigu Qigong.

“It can be practiced independently as a weight loss program. It can also work with any other weight management program. It is easy to learn, has quick-to-see results, and promotes overall health improvement.”

Those planning to lose weight in the New Year may be interested in an ancient Chinese secret: Bigu Qigong (BEE-GOO CHEE-KUNG). Roughly translated “energetic fasting,” the practice teaches controlled breathing exercises that allow participants to “breathe their way to thin.”

Dr. Qizhi Gao, D.O.M., Dipl. OM, has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine since 1980 and has 40 years’ experience as a Qigong Practitioner and Instructor.

Now, Dr. Gao is releasing his methods to a wider audience through his book “Breathing Yourself Thin,” and through an online course that includes a video series and access to instructors. Learn more here: https://ibreathin.com/

“I have seen many successes over the years among students who adhere to this program,” said Dr. Gao. “I wanted to make these exercises available to anyone. Students can now take the program online. In just two weeks, they complete the course and are on their way to a healthier lifestyle.”

Part of Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years, Bigu Qigong is an exercise that harmonizes the mind and breath with a specific body position to achieve hunger control and to improve the function of internal organs. It includes all the elements necessary for success — food intake reduction, exercise, and mental discipline — without the pitfalls of the usual Western weight management programs.

“It can be practiced independently as a weight loss program. It can also work with any other weight management program. It is easy to learn, has quick-to-see results, and promotes overall health improvement,” Dr. Gao said.

“Breathing Yourself Thin,” is also available on Amazon.com. https://www.amazon.com/Breathing-Yourself-Thin-Qizhi-Gao/dp/1479734101
