Qigong is Good for Fibromyalgia

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Here is one of many links showing how Qigong helps with Fibromyalgia. People who practiced daily for 45 minutes to an hour had really good results in pain relief and better sleep.

Even though I have not wanted to believe I have fibromyalgia, as well as scoliosis, I probably do.  About 15 years ago, I was diagnosed with it here in Seattle. Maybe I was in denial, but I rarely mention it to Western MD’s, massage practitioners, naturopaths, physical therapists, etc.  Having scoliosis is enough of a burden.
I realized that I am not doing enough Yi Ren Qigong. Monday I did about 30 minutes in the morning and then 15 minutes later in the day. On Tuesday I practiced with a friend for about an hour. Wednesday I practiced 15 minutes and today I did not practice at all. I will never get well, if I don’t apply myself and do this work. But, I am working too hard. Today I work 3 hours at the computer and then drove up north and worked 3 more hours on my feet making art, playing fiddle and singing to two separate groups of elders. I was in so much pain then, that I had to drive all the way home and get pain medication. It was my 60th birthday and I wanted to go to my birthday gathering with my family. But, I was in pretty bad shape even with the medication. I can only hope that I sleep tonight. I am so very tired. Then, I will get up while it is cool and do my qigong in the back yard. So, off to bed for me! Namaste!
