Reboot and Rejoice: How I healed from PD using the body/mind practice of Qigong

Review by Cheryl Shainmark

Reboot and Rejoice is a wonderfully personal account of the author’s full recovery from Parkinson’s Disease using qigong. Ms. Molle shares her regimen, including details of the specific teachers, CDs, websites, etc., that she used to facilitate her healing. Now, more than three years after her recovery, she shares the specifics, as well as her reflections on the healing process.

Ms. Molle opens with a bit of background, but then dives right into her healing journey. She writes, “It took sixty years and Parkinson’s Disease for me to realize that life can only be lived to the fullest when body and mind unite, that this can be best be accomplished through the mind-body disciplines, and that in the process, spirituality emerges as the authentic self begins to reappear. Today I continue to reap the benefits of this epiphany, not without wonder and not without pain. Feeling on all levels has returned, rendering me fully alive and completely vulnerable.”

The author narrates how, scared of decreasing mobility and increasing medications, she turned to Wisdom Healing Qigong. She thanks Master Mingtong Gu (and his mentor, Dr. Pang Ming) and the Chi Center in California, and writes how she used his Sound Healing CDs as part of her regimen. She also mentions an intensive healing retreat in China, and how her energy shifted once she made the decision to go there. Unlike most recovery books though, Ms. Molle makes it clear that her healing was never about perfection or precision in her practice, but more about making the committment to do it every day and doing the best she could with it. This is very encouraging stuff for anyone facing a healing journey of their own.

Delay or Reverse Aging with Qi Gong, Meditation, Yoga and More

There’s increased evidence showing that practices such as qi gong, meditation and yoga can not only prevent disease, but actually reverse it and delay aging as well. As scientists learn more about such topics as gene expression, what turns a gene on or off, and how to prevent telomeres, (the strands of protein in our cells that control aging) from unraveling, it becomes impossible to ignore just how much our good lifestyle choices can pay off.

| by Merryn Jose

Like so many of us, I’ve been watching my nutrition and eating healthfully for years, buying only organic food and the very freshest ingredients possible.

Everything’s Coming Up Qi Gong

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Several weeks ago I went through a spate of night sweats and hormone induced tossing and turning that left me wide awake at 2:30 or 3:00 every morning, heart pounding from the surge of adrenaline and completely unable to fall back asleep…. Each wee hour I’d grab a fresh dry night shirt and plod downstairs, resigned to Law & Order reruns and arguing with the cats for four hours about why they couldn’t go outside right then. After several nights of this I decided that I really had to do something better with my time.
