    In this issue of OMJ we introduce another body of work that deepens our understanding of Eastern influences within Oriental Medicine and pushes the power of OM forward, perhaps to a place where it once was millennia ago, or perhaps toward new possibilities. Qigong Master Mingtong Gu has synthesized the work of many qigong masters, most notably Dr. Grandmaster Pang Ming, founder of the Zhineng Qigong Training and Recovery Center, and is making qigong healing practices accessible to Western audiences.

    To set the stage for Master Gu’s work, we open this issue with an editorial that I wrote concerning what I see as a significant deficiency in the training of acupuncturists in this country, perhaps throughout the Western world. We talk about using qi in our treatments, yet acupuncture curricula emphasize Western Medicine topics rather than how to use qi. We learn the kinds of qi, the pathways it takes, and how to place needles to achieve this or that outcome, but instruction on how to access qi and use it for healing seems to be absent. I would hazard a guess that even those of us who experience qi while doing qigong or tai chi cannot make the jump to using qi for healing. Most likely we do qigong and tai chi as an exercise rather than as a spiritual practice that is an essential element in healing self, others, and the world.

    In this issue, we introduce Mingtong Gu’s qigong teachings by presenting a transcript of a lecture he gave, entitled “How to Heal.” In his lecture, he lays out the elements necessary for using qigong to heal. The elements are the same for all healing, but he selected three conditions and shows us how to apply these ideas for healing specific diseases: Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological conditions, Lyme disease and other autoimmune conditions, and cancer. We follow Master Gu’s main lecture with another shorter lecture by him about Dr. Pang’s medicineless hospital and with a case report by a woman who used Gu’s methods to reverse a connective tissue disorder that left her with numbness in the head and face, Sjogren’s syndrome, and no saliva. Oriental Medicine is a powerful medicine that comes out of an entirely different paradigm from the medicine of the West. While there are clearly advantages to “integrating” Western and Eastern Medicine, let us be very careful not to do so at the expense of losing Oriental Medicine in the integration process. The power of Oriental Medicine lies in its becoming more Eastern, not in its becoming more Western. Gu’s and Pang’s work is evidence of this, and their work must not be lost!
