Can Tai Chi and Qigong Help the Economy?
  

 

Dear World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Supporters,

 

In addition to being an organizing hub for World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events in hundreds of cities in 70 nations each year, www.WorldTaiChiDay.org provides many free services to tai chi and qigong enthusiasts, beginners, experts and teachers.

 

NEW FREE RESOURCES at www.WorldTaiChiDay.org!

The following newsletter will highlight some of these valuable resources you can enjoy, and then share with others. We assume that you, like us, realize that Tai Chi and Qigong can help loved ones, society and the world become a healthier calmer place, and that you want this to spread as we do.

 

Why is it important that you take an active role in helping to spread these newsletters and the research it exposes people to?

Massive TV advertising focuses on "drug" solutions to life issues. Tai Chi & Qigong will NEVER be able to advertise on TV, even though it can vastly improve people's lives, and profoundly lower health costs worldwide.

 

Tai Chi and Qigong are labor intensive industries that employ many people, but create no massive wealth for a single provider. This is good for the economy because de-centralized income spread over a wide swath of people is much better for the economy than massive wealth flowing to one singular provider. Tai Chi and Qigong solutions ultimately are good for our economy, just as Tai Chi and Qigong, and Tai Chi and Qigong Teachers, are good for the health of our society and world.

 

When you share our newsletters or features at www.WorldTaiChiDay.org such as our Medical Research Library you are contributing to world health, and to our economy, while also contributing to trillions of dollars worth of saving in future health costs. Together, we can make a HUGE difference in our world.

 

"Alone we can do so little ... together ... so much."

-- Helen Keller

 

Lastly, over the last 15 years I have promoted links to Tai Chi and Qigong teachers all over the world through an addendum in my best-selling Tai Chi book.

 

The 4th edition of my tai chi and qigong book "The Complete Idiot's Guide to T'ai Chi & Qigong" has just been released. This book has been heralded by top tai chi and qigong experts for explaining difficult Chinese concepts in easy to understand Western frameworks.

 

This book also has an appendix that promotes teachers worldwide. If you are a teacher, read the below article to find out how you can take advantage of this feature.

 

This new 4th edition will be a great leap forward in book instruction, which will include nearly 150 web-video support videos that will help readers understand deep complex tai chi and qigong concepts, presented in an effective easy-to-understand way. This book has been used by teachers worldwide as a supplement to their class instruction, and this new 4th edition is a paradigm shift forward combining illustrations, videos, & tips that teachers of any style have found profoundly useful

REVIEWS OF "THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO T'AI CHI & QIGONG"
by Tai Chi & Qigong Legends:

"Sometimes Chinese culture can be difficult to explain. Sifu Bill Douglas successfully uses American culture to explain the art of T'ai Chi Chuan. He simplifies difficult concepts, making them easier to understand. This book takes the best parts of T'ai Chi and makes them understandable [to Westerners] without requiring a grounding in Chinese culture and history."
 

-Sifu Yijiao Hong, USA All-Tai Chi Grand Champion and USA Team member; Certified International Coach and Judge, International Wushu Federation


 

"Douglas has achieved for QiGong what Apple did for the computer. He's brought it to the people ... great place to start for beginners. ... Teachers may also find this an excellent manual 'on how to explain these concepts to the general public ....'"

-R. Poccia, stress management instructor, Beyond Anonymous, San Francisco

 

 

 

 

 

"Visionary! If you only buy one book on T'ai Chi, then this is the book. This book is all you ever needed to know to change your life. I have taught T'ai Chi for several decades myself, yet I have now read Bill's book from cover to cover seven times, and still get something new from it each time."
-Dr. Michael Steward Sr., D.MA,
Ph.D., MA, Senior Coach for Team USA, Inductee of the World Sports Medicine and World Martial Arts Hall of Fame

American Journal on Health Promotion on Qigong
 

 

    

 

 


A meta-analysis of Qigong or Tai-Chi interventions, published in the American Journal of Health Promotion also concluded that research has demonstrated "consistent, significant results for a number of health benefits" in randomized controlled trials. Blocked Qi flow can lead to disease, according to TCM. The analysis reviewed 77 published articles for the effect of Qigong or Tai-Chi in nine categories including:
  • Bone density
  • Cardiopulmonary effects
  • Immune function
  • Psychological symptoms
  • Falls and related risk factors
