Editor’s note: Since its publication in November 1985, the article “Incredible to Believe, But Absolutely True” has generated tremendous amount of interests among the readers, particularly those afflicted with various illnesses. There has been a continuous stream of patients visiting Master Xue Zhong Zhao’s renowned Qi Gong Office in Beijing, yet at the same time some readers are still skeptical about the practice and the therapeutic efficacy of Qi Gong. To answer many of the common questions and concerns brought up by the readers, such as, How does Master Zhao use QiGong to make clinical diagnoses? What are the diseases that can be optimally treated by Qi Gong? Our reporter had an exclusive follow-up interview with Master Zhao, the Qi Gong doctor at the Beijing Hwa-Yi Unified Clinic of the Chinese Medicine. Also included in this article are excerpts of letters from patients who had been treated by Master Zhao.
Reporter: The general public has been intrigued and puzzled by the seeming mysteriousness of Qi Gong. Would you mind explaining how you use Qi Gong to detect and diagnose diseases?
Zhao: It’s not unusual for people to mystify phenomena they don’t understand: This is a normal human response. Western doctors rely on instruments (such as laboratory tests and imaging studies) to make clinical diagnoses, while traditional Chinese doctors derive clinical diagnoses by reading pulses. But Qi Gong doctors, like myself, have a unique way to detect and diagnose diseases.
All organisms, including humans, are composed of cells, the basic unit of life. Modern scientific research has demonstrated that every cell has its own micro electromagnetic field, which sends out specific wave signals. Pathologically transformed cells have an altered micro electromagnetic field; therefore, the wave signals emitted by the diseased cells are also altered, and Qi Gong doctors make clinical diagnoses by detecting these altered wave signals.
Why is it that Qi Gong doctors are able to detect and receive the wave signals from the human body? The answer to this question actually requires further exploration and research by the modern science, and because of its complexity, here I can only provide a glimpse of the answer. There are three levels to Qi Gong: beginning, intermediate, and advanced. Different levels mean different understanding and capability. A Qi Gong master who has achieved advanced level is able to emit qi (or energy). Emitting qi is not some sort of supernatural phenomenon; the emitted qi is a form of special wave. When this wave is projected onto the patient, it can scan the human body and detect the signals discharged from the pathologically transformed cells. The Qi Gong master’s brain can receive, analyze the signals returned from the patient, and from this information proceed to make clinical diagnoses. This “Qi Gong scan” can often be completed in just seconds or tens of seconds. In other words Qi Gong doctors utilize the basic function of the human brain, which is to send and receive signals.
Letter from Chen Qu, Changchun, Jilin Province:
In this magazine I’d read about Xue Zhong Zhao, the renowned Qi Gong master in Beijing, and about how Master Zhao is unbelievably accurate in making clinical diagnoses. I came a long way from home to visit Master Zhao in the Capital city, hoping to get my illnesses diagnosed by this Shen Yi (doctor with godlike gift). When I arrived at his house, and before I had the chance to describe what symptoms I’d had, Master Zhao immediately pointed out that something was wrong with my liver and gallbladder. His diagnoses completely coincided with the results of the ultrasound. And since I’d also heard that Master Zhao is able to detect diseases from the residuals signals left on a person’s photograph, I proceeded to show Master Zhao my husband’s picture. Master Zhao looked at the photo with a piercing gaze and said after a short moment: “Your husband has slightly elevated blood pressure as well as atherosclerosis, the most affected being his cerebral arteries. Also, he has kidney problems.” I was completely taken aback by the accuracy of his diagnoses. Undeterred, I then showed him my daughter’s picture. Master Zhao scanned it briefly and said, “She has a weaker constitution. She has adnexitis, more severe on the right side, and she often has headache, dizziness, and weakness.” I was nodding incessantly as I listened to Master Zhao’s comments. What Master Zhao had just described completely coincided with our daily symptoms, and I was utterly awed by the profound diagnostic power of his Qi Gong.
Letter from Zhi-Hua Guo, staff officer at the Air Force Academy of the Liberation Army, People’s Republic of China:
When I slept at night, I used to have severe convulsions developed in my head, left arm, and left leg. I’d also noticed that the affected limbs had chronic soreness and coldness, as well as muscular atrophy and weakness. I sought treatment from various sources to no avail, since my condition had never been properly diagnosed. When I first met Master Zhao, he pointed out that the left side of my cerebellum had been injured in the past just by scanning me head to toe with his eyes. I was rather surprised, and I then asked, “What does it mean to have a cerebellar injury? How long ago did it happen? What does this injury have to do with the convulsions I have in my limbs?” Master Zhao answered immediately that “cerebellum is often injured as a result of violent forces impacting the head; this had occurred at least more than thirty years ago. On top of the physical injury, the cerebellum had also caught a chill, leading to convulsions.” Just then I remembered an accident that had happened thirty-five y ears ago. I fell off a frightened horse and lost consciousness after I was kicked by the horse on the back of the head. When I was younger, the complications from that fall (convulsions) were not apparent; however, as I got older, the symptoms became more pronounced and severe. This is the first time someone has actually come up with a diagnosis of my condition, and Master Zhao has accomplished that by Qi Gong.
