Qigong and TCM a most ancient art and science, Since 1990, Qigong has gained solid western scientific evidence of effectiveness where all else had failed to heal a condition. Qigong is used for promoting health in all walks and ages of life!
Simply defined: Qigong is A Positive Way of Life - Spiritually, Mentally, and Physically, based on the Taoist Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine, not just another series of exercise or meditation. It can promote health and cure diseases by living right! Qi is Breath or Oxygen or Vital Life Force, and Gong is Cultivation at the highest order.
It is the most powerful self healing practice transported from China to our Western Shores...the human being is the most powerful instrument supercharging oxygenation and blood circulation for vital life!.
Qigong is an overall umbrella of thousands of diverse styles including hard Qi of the Martial Arts, Tai Chi Chuan, and the soft Qi of the Healing styles of Medical Qigong. The Conference will exhibit an exciting array of world experts who have expertise with minor to serious death defying illnesses!
Qigong comprises a diverse set of practices that coordinate body, breath and mind based on Chinese philosophy and classical theory. Practices include moving and still meditation, visualization, massage, sound healing and non-contact therapies.Qigong is commonly classified into two foundational categories: 1) dynamic or active qigong (dong gong), with slow flowing movement; and 2) meditative or passive qigong (jing gong), with still positions and inner movement of the breath. From a therapeutic perspective, qigong can be classified into two systems: 1) internal qigong, which focuses on self-care and self-cultivation, and; 2) external qigong, which involves treatment by a therapist who directs or transmits qi.
There are numerous qigong forms. 75 ancient forms that can be found in classic literature and 56 common or contemporary forms which have been described in a qigong compendium. The list is by no means exhaustive. Many contemporary forms were developed by people who had recovered from their illness after qigong practice.
- Intentional movement: subtle, flowing balanced style
- Rhythmic breathing: slow, deep, coordinated with movement
- Awareness: calm, focused meditative state
- Visualization: of qi flow, philosophical tenets, aesthetics
- Vocalization and /Sound healing : internal vibration and use of sound for healing
- Softness: soft gaze, a calm face
- Solid Stance: grounded footing, spinal alignment to heaven
- Relaxation: relaxed muscles, slightly bent joints
- Balance and Counterbalance: motion over the centre of gravity
- Unlocking the waist and spine; circular movement
- Equanimity: more fluid, more relaxed and energized at the same time
- Tranquility: empty mind, high awareness
- Stillness: smaller and smaller movements, eventually to complete stillness
- Moving qi with the mind
The most advanced practice is generally considered to be with little or no motion.
Naturopathic Medicine also called Naturopathy is a medical system that has evolved from a combination of traditional practices and health care approaches. In the United States, naturopathy is practiced by naturopathic physicians, traditional naturopaths, and other health care providers who also offer naturopathic services. Naturopathy is an Alternative treatment method it incorporates Herbal treatment, Diet treatment and Homeopathy. Natural medications re-establish the body's inborn capacity to heal itself without the adverse impacts of conventional drug. Naturopathy is essential primary health care system that mixes cutting edge logical information with standard and normal types of prescription. Naturopathic Medicine stresses comprehensive, preventive care by concentrating on prevention, optimal health and health.
Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the entire person’s body, mind, spirit, and emotions in the mission for ideal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can accomplish optimal health the primary objective of holistic medicine practice by increasing proper balance in life.

Ayurveda is an ancient Alternative healthcare system, it is created from Vedas. All Ayurveda writings are created in Sanskrit. Ayurveda analyse the disorder by heartbeat, discourse, tongue, touch, appearance, vision, pee. Several paradigms of Ayurveda unique to Western practice have developed over the past few decades, but perhaps the most pervasive paradigm imprinted in the mind of the American public is a form of practice termed “New Age Ayurveda”(NAA).

Homeopathy is a method for treating disease by medications, given in minute dosages that would deliver in sound individual indications like those of the illness. About 60% of the homeopathic medicines are prepared from one or more parts of plants. The entire plant or few sections of it, such as leaves, flowers, roots, berries, and seeds may be used in the preparation of the medicines. Approximately 20% of the homeopathic medicines are prepared from minerals, non-metals, including metals and their compounds. Most basic infections treated by homeopaths are Allergic rhinitis, asthma, depression, neurotic disorders, Headache, non-particular sensitivity, non-specific allergy, dermatitis, arthritis and hypertension. All homeopathic medicines are tested on human volunteers, by a method that is similar to clinical trials, before use. The clinical use of these medicines is administrated by specific tried-and-tested laws and principles.
Nature, the ace of craftsman of particles or molecules created almost an inexhaustible exhibit of molecular entities. It bears as an infinite resource for drug development, novel chemotypes and pharmacophores, and frameworks for enhancement into efficacious medications for a multitude of disorder indications and other valuable bioactive agents. Until recently, plants were an important source of novel pharmacologically active compounds with numerous drugs being derived directly or indirectly from plants. Despite the current preoccupation with synthetic chemistry as a vehicle to find or discover and manufacture drugs, the contribution of plants to health treatment and prevention is still enormous and many more. Even at the beginning of 21st century, 11% of the 252 drugs considered as basic and fundamental by the WHO were exclusively of flowering plant origin. The plant-derived compounds have a long history of clinical use, better patient tolerance and acknowledgment. To date, 35,000-70,000 plant species have been screened for their medicinal use.
It has been well detailed that natural products played critical roles in modern drug development, particularly for antibacterial and antitumor agents. Despite the fact that the synthetic products increased due to its production cost, time viability, quality control, stringent regulation and quick effects, however their safety and adequacy was always remained questionable, resulting in the dependence on the natural products by more than 80% of the total population in the developing world, because of its time tested safety and adequacy. A numerous number of natural product-derived compounds in various stages of clinical development highlighted the existing viability and significance of the utilization of natural products as sources of new drug compounds. Obviously natural products will continue to be extremely important as sources of therapeutic agents. About 20% of the number of population in US takes herbal products, often in the absence of good evidence of their viability.
It is mandatory to investigate the plants accurately which have been used in traditional medicine to increase the quality of healthcare. The allegation that natural plant products are safe should be accepted only after the plant product passes through toxicity testing using current scientific methods. To resolve the safety of drugs and plant products for human use, toxicological assessments are carried out on various experimental animals to anticipate toxicity. There are other certain extensive toxicological studies on some natural extract.
