For thousands of years, the practice of Qigong has been the foundation for holistic health science in China. Formerly overlooked in much of the western world, Qigong has gained in popularity in western countries since the 1980s. In eastern lands, its popularity has seldom flagged from year to year. But this year, especially, brought the venerable practice even more attention as the first Qiqong international museum in the world for Chinese Medical Qigong opened in China to pay tribute to famed Master Wang. Dame Dr. Effie Chow was one of a dozen international experts invited to exhibit and present. Television and news producer Rose Hong and crew attended the opening and produced a film. Chow and Hong shared their excitement with water advocate and Qigong practitioner Sharon Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated radio program The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®.
Sharon Kleyne asked Dr. Chow, a frequent and favorite visitor to the program, to tell the audience what Qigong is. Dr. Chow, who has taught and treated an estimated 450,000 people worldwide in her forty-plus years of practice, explained that Qi means breath or life-force and gong means cultivating health with the breath. “No breath, no oxygen, you are dead,” said Chow. “It’s all about the balance of the Qi,” Chow continued. “It is arriving at health through your breath. However, without water moisture in the air there is no breath!”
“Human life depends on this water breath,” Kleyne agreed. “Water is key to all natural health and medicine,” Hong added. “In the future,” Hong said, “water will be more valuable than gold.” Hong, who described meeting Dr. Chow as a translator for a PBS documentary on Chow’s work, looks forward with enthusiasm to the opening of five additional international Qigong museums. “Given that 40% of China’s drinking water is polluted,” Hong said, “it’s important to call attention to holistic health alternatives and to the importance of clean water.”
“Diet, good sleep and exercise are so important to maintaining optimum health,” said Kleyne, the foremost water researcher of new water technology in the world, “but first and foremost is water. Everyone needs to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day to supplement the body’s water vapor, which begins a process of dehydration due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor the moment one leaves the womb. This process,” Kleyne continued, “goes on until the end of life. It’s also essential that everybody learn a lot more about water and evaporation than they know now.”
“The first thing I ask my students and clients/patients,” Chow said, “is how much water do you drink? Water is absolutely the key to good health. Drinking too little water will kick-start illness and disease. So, drink those 8 to 10 glasses a day and work a practice like Qigong with positive attitude.”
