Qi gong, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Telomerase Activity

The most significant studies that have investigated the benefits of Qi gong, were carried out by a group in Hong Kong. Here we report on three studies, which show improvements in mental and physical symptoms of CFS.

The first study investigated the effect of Baduanjin Qi gong on sleep, fatigue, anxiety and depression in patients with CFS. Patient volunteers were given either sixteen 90 minute Qi gong sessions over 9 weeks or put on a waiting list. Levels of anxiety and depression, sleep quality, and fatigue were assessed before the start of treatment, immediately after treatment and then 3 months after treatment. Results showed that there were significant improvements in patients perceived sleep quality as well as reduction in anxiety and depressive symptoms.

ED: I tried Qi Gong, but couldn't manage it because I suffer so badly with orthostatic intolerance and the slowness of the movements made it difficult for me remain upright. I could, however, see how it could be useful if you can get over that obstacle.
