A profound healing technique

I'll start this article with the disclaimer found in the beginning of the book:

"To reduce the risk of injury, consult your doctor before beginning this or any exercise program. The instructions and advice presented are in no way intended as a substitute for medical counseling. The Author, Producers, Participants and Distributors of this book disclaim any liability or loss in connection with the exercise and advice herein."

101 Miracles of Natural Healing outlines the success stories of 101 people who "miraculously recovered" while practicing Chi Lel, receiving Chi transmissions from other practitioners, and living at "The Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Clinic & Training Center", commonly known as "The Center", in Qinhuangdao, China. The Center is the largest medicineless hospital in the world! The author of the book, Luke Chan, first encountered the healing power of Chi as he witnessed an ultra sound demonstration of a tumor being removed as a Chi Lel master transmitted Chi to it. Inspired by what he saw, Luke Chan traveled to The Center and proceeded to interview 101 people who had recovered from all types of chronic conditions - ranging from the minimal (one interviewee's big toe regained feeling) to the astounding (one man's cancer completely disappeared while he was living and practicing at the center). While living at The Center people have recovered from virtually every sort of disease, including: cancer, diabetes, paralysis, severe depression, lupus, and so on. It is astounding.

The Center has a 95% success rate!

Many of the people who end up at The Center have already exhausted other traditional and alternative forms of medicine. In 1991 a survey of nearly 8000 people was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the techniques used at The Center. 15% of the respondents said that they were completely cured. Another 38% deemed their health improvements to be "very effective"; and another 40% stated that their improvement was "effective". Only 5% felt that they had stayed the same or gotten worse.

My experience with Chi Lel

I first became interested in Chi Lel during the winter of 1996, while I was living in Port Townsend Washington. My Tai Chi teacher there had just returned from a seminar where she obtained the book 101 Miracles of Natural Healing. With her assistance (and a fair amount of diligence on my part) I quickly learned the Lift Chi Up, Pour Chi Down form; the Three Centers Merging form; and the Wall Squats that are outlined in the book. I felt that my energy reserves were being renewed; and dedicated myself to doing the Lift Chi Up, Pour Chi Down form twice a day, and the Three Centers Merging form for 20 minutes each day (a total of about 50 minutes to an hour each day) for one 100 day period. The author of the book recommends doing the form unbroken for at least 100 days to see noticeable results. After the first 100 days I continued to practice it for about 2 years straight.

During that time my seasonal effective disorder disappeared, and I attribute that to this form. I also had a number of prophetic dreams during this time; and feel that the form helped me get in touch with my guides and guardian angels. Be that as it may, I felt drawn to do the form very strongly for many years, and continue to practice it for 100 day periods at least once a year since 2002. It is energizing, rejuvenating and improves my mood. It helps me to focus and concentrate, and to feel that I am taking responsibility for my health.

In the summer of 1997 I went to a two day workshop where Frank and Luke Chan taught the forms in the book. They are very down to earth and pleasant people, as well as being good teachers. The training that I had from the book itself very nearly matched what we were taught in person; and any discrepancy was my own fault. Later that summer I taught the form to a person who had been practicing Tai Chi for 15 years or so. She immediately saw the power of the Lift Chi Up, Pour Chi Down form; and changed her practice to incorporate it.


The exercises presented in this book are potentially life changing. I understand that the full effects are most readily experienced while living at The Center where you are surrounded by people practicing the form and you are encouraged to practice it all day long. However, my own experience as a lone practitioner (for the most part) has been rewarding. The book has clear instructions and offers inspirational and practical advice for people wishing to improve their well being through movement and concentration. I recommend this book, as well as the audiotape (which leads you through Lift Chi Up, Pour Chi Down), that Luke Chan offers.

      This looks very interesting. I have tried Tai Chi on and off. This reminds me to do it more regularly.

      Thanks for sharing!
