As soon as it was time, Fang Qiu said, “Follow me.”
The other six opened their eyes.
They saw Fang Qiu pull his hands to his sides, stand with his legs straight, his left foot to the right, his right foot to the left, his toes to the inside, his heels to the inside until he closed his feet.
Seeing this, the six immediately followed suit.
Eventually, they all stopped the practice!
Everyone got up and looked at Fang Qiu differently.
Except for Chen Yinsheng, the members of the investigation team were skeptical when they first met Fang Qiu, but after they had actually felt the presence of Qi, they had all looked at Fang Qiu with admiration and shock.
With a smile, Fang Qiu asked, “Anything else to verify?”
The five members of the investigation team looked at each other.
Just now, they had all experienced it, so they had nothing to verify.
Ryan stood out, looked at Fang Qiu expectantly, and asked, “Can we keep practicing what you just taught us?”
“Yes, of course.”
Fang Qiu nodded and said, “But it’s very hard to feel Qi without a foundation. Only when you practice to a certain extent can you feel it. Just now, you can feel it because I use my Qi to move the Qi in your body. I’m just making you feel the presence of Qi in yourself. To truly control Qi and feel its presence at all times requires painstaking practice.”
All five members of the investigation team nodded.
They knew of course that there was no free lunch or easy Qigong.
“If you want to practice.”
Fang Qiu continued, “Welcome to mysterious Huaxia again. Here are countless methods to practice Qi summed up by predecessors. No matter which method, as long as you are persistent, relaxed and natural, you can finally control your own Qi.”
“Really?” Ryan asked in surprise.
Huaxia had so many methods to practice Qi unexpectedly?
As a member of a worldwide medical and health organization, he had never heard of this before. Was he too ill-informed?
The other four were also surprised.
Astonished, one of the scientists asked, “What is Qi?”
“When Qi appeared just now, was the sensation on our body a nerve quiver or a muscle quiver?”
Fang Qiu smiled at his question.
Then, he explained, “Qi is the origin of the universe, the most delicate and minute substance that makes up the human body. In other words, anything that keeps breaking down, breaking down until it’s invisible to modern science, and then breaking down again and again and again and again, it will eventually become Qi. It’s not the quiver of the nerves but the flow of Qi!”
At this, the scientist frowned thoughtfully and began to think.
“If the most subtle thing is Qi, it is certainly verifiable. But at the moment, science does not meet the requirement to verify it. It will take time.”
Thinking of this, the scientist asked, “In this case, how to use Qi? How to apply it to clinical practice? Can Qi be used in other ways besides medicine?”
Fang Qiu nodded and replied, “After you’ve practiced enough Qi, you can make your internal Qi out and external Qi in. However, this method needs a long time to practice to achieve. Of course, there are other ways to use Qi. There are so many areas where Qi can be used.”
“As for the application of Qi in clinical practice, that is too much.”
Indeed, as Fang Qiu said, there were so many ways to apply Qi in clinical practice that Fang Qiu himself could hardly explain them all.
So he only said some of them that the investigation team could understand.
The scientists listened entranced.
But at the same time, a middle-aged man who had been standing with Ryan, in a suit, a little chubby, with thin, curly yellow hair, suddenly asked, “Can you show us?”
Fang Qiu nodded.
Everyone felt awe.
“Are we going to the hospital?” Ryan asked.
Fang Qiu shook his head and smiled, looking at the medical scientist next to Ryan, saying, “When you talked, I saw the coating on your tongue was thin and white, and there were tooth marks on the edge of your tongue. Have you been having some health problems?”
The medical scientist was stunned.
“We don’t have to go to the hospital now that we have a patient.”
Fang Qiu chuckled and said, “If you don’t mind, I can diagnose you. Is that all right?”
The medical scientist nodded his head at once.
He did feel sick recently. He wanted to go to the hospital to have a check-up and get some medicine.
However, as soon as the matter about Qi happened, he rushed over and didn’t have time to get checked out.
Now, this undetected disease was going to be a case of Qi.
He would test it himself.
This was undoubtedly the best for the investigation team.
Fang Qiu didn’t hesitate to feel his pulse when he agreed.
Fang Qiu found that the man’s floating pulse was smooth and soft.
“Are you constipated?” Fang Qiu asked.
“Yes,” the medical scientist answered and nodded.
Although he had never studied Chinese medicine or worked with a doctor of Chinese medicine, he had heard about it, so he wasn’t surprised that Fang Qiu saw his problem so soon.
“Can you tell me more about it?” Fang Qiu asked.
The medical scientist thought about it and said, “I’ve been constipated for months. I know medicine is bad for my health, so I chose not to take it. Instead, I took fruits, sweet almonds, and honey for a long time. I tried to use food to slowly heal my body, but after a few months, I still have trouble with my bowel movements.”
“Do you have any medical history?” Fang Qiu asked again.
“I had a history of chronic bronchitis.”
The medical scientist answered.
Fang Qiu nodded.
He had confirmed that the medical scientist’s disease was: the dirty air in the lungs was not expelled, and his deficiency of lung yin caused dysfunction of the intestines.
Of course, Fang Qiu didn’t reveal it.
Even if he knew how to say the result in English, the others might not understand. He could only translate the result into common and simple words before telling them.
Then he was ready to begin treatment.
“I’ll treat you with acupuncture and Qigong.”
With that, Fang Qiu immediately turned around and pulled a backpack from under the meeting table.
This backpack was with him when he came to the meeting room. Knowing the investigation team was coming to verify Qi, acupuncture was a must for Fang Qiu. So he took his needles.
He took the needles from his backpack and gave it to Ryan to examine.
Meanwhile, Fang Qiu said, “According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, constipation is largely caused by the abnormal conduction function of the large intestine due to heat accumulation of the large intestine, Qi stagnation, cold coagulation, or deficiency of Qi and blood of Yin and Yang.”
“In one of our ancient medical books of thousands of years ago, Su Wen: the Treasure in Linglan Room, it says, ‘the large intestine is the official of conduction, so there are changes.”
While explaining, Fang Qiu picked up the needles Ryan had checked, then chose the silver needle, pulled up the patient’s right hand, found the Chize acupoint inside the elbow, and stung it in with unerring accuracy.
Then he picked up another silver needle and stuck it into the Yuji acupoint below the thumb.
He then performed the procedure on the patient’s left hand.
As he stabbed, Fang Qiu continued, “From the perspective of viscera, constipation is mainly caused by the lungs, spleen, and kidney. In traditional Chinese medicine, this requires the use of the principles of the lung and large intestine.”
“The reason to clear the Chize acupoint and Yuji acupoint of the lung channel is that due to the choked lung air, I have to purge its ‘son’. The lungs belong to metal, and the ‘son’ of metal is water. Chize acupoint is the lung channel’s Heshui acupoint, and Yuji acupoint is its Yinghuo acupoint. They can sort out the internal heat of the lungs, so that the lung air can be cleaned and Yin fluid can moisten the intestines, achieving the internal organs smooth.”
While explaining the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, Fang Qiu cleaned the patient’s Chize acupoint and Yuji acupoint.
“If you do this with normal traditional Chinese acupuncture, you need to do it once a day. After twice in a row, you’ll feel your bowels open. After three times, your bowel movements will be normal.”
“But with my Qi, I can cure it all at once.”
With that, Fang Qiu immediately mobilized his internal Qi and poured it through the needle into the patient’s body.
The medical scientist was slightly shocked and said, “I seem to feel it.”
“You’ve just felt Qi yourself, so you can feel it now. However, since you are not seriously ill, I don’t use much Qi, so your feeling will be a little fuzzy. If I do it again in a few hours, you won’t feel it. Ordinary people do not feel the existence of Qi either. Even if I introduce Qi into their bodies to heal them, they won’t feel it.”
Fang Qiu explained.
The crowd was amazed at what he said.
The patient couldn’t feel Qi while receiving treatment?
In that case, they could only judge whether the doctor had used Qi from the treatment effect.
Three minutes later, Fang Qiu pulled the needles out.
Treatment was over.
No sooner had the needles been removed than the medical scientist’s stomach began to growl.
“I need to go to the bathroom.”
The medical scientist cried at once.
Chen Yinsheng led the way at once.
After a while, the medical scientist came out of the bathroom and looked completely different.
He looked a little out of shape before, but now he was as fresh as a Daisy.
When he was cured, the other four members of the investigation team were immediately convinced of traditional Chinese medicine.
Just a few needles could cure a disease.
“I regret not having accepted and learned Chinese medicine earlier.”
“It’s amazing. It’s the most amazing medicine I’ve ever seen. The mysterious oriental medicine is really great!”
“I understand now. Traditional Chinese medicine is still an unknown field for modern medicine, but this magic and powerful medical skill has been inherited in Huaxia for thousands of years. We haven’t found it for thousands of years. It’s so sad.”
The five men commented one after another.
Everyone showed great excitement and thrill, mingled with a perpetual shock.
Shocked, Ryan said, “I’d like to invite you to the global medical forum that will be held this summer. If you like, I will certainly help send you an invitation.”
Fang Qiu nodded at once.
With the Qigong incident and the shock of the investigation team, Fang Qiu felt that he could have been more aggressive. In retrospect, he was too conservative.
Since he wanted to advocate Chinese medicine, he should grasp every opportunity to make Chinese medicine to go out!
