General Anformation About IBD
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) belongs to chronic disorders that result in inflammation or ulceration in the small and large intestines. They are the two most severe digestive afflictions which cause tens of thousands of Westerners to be affected. But most often IBD is referred to as colitis, enteritis and portcullis. IBD can be classified into two types--ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD). This classification may not be possible with some cases which are called indeterminate.

Crohn's disease is an inflammation upon the deeper layers of the intestinal wall while Ulcerative colitis upon the inner lining of the colon and rectum. Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease cause similar symptoms that often resemble other conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. The symptoms of ulcerative colitis are constipation with passage of blood or mucus in the stools, abdominal pain, often in the lower right area, diarrhea and/or constipation, rectal bleeding, weight loss, and fever. Bleeding may be serious and persistent, leading to anemia. The patient may have the urge to defecate with only a scanty bowel movement. The patient may then develop severe fatigue, weight loss, loss of appetite, fever and occasionally painful joints.

Causes of IBD
There are many theories about what causes Crohn's disease, almost all of them has not been proven. One theory is that some agent, perhaps a virus or a bacterium, affects the body's immune system to trigger an inflammatory reaction in the intestinal wall. Although there is a lot of evidence that patients with this disease have abnormalities of the immune system, doctors do not know whether the immune problems are a cause or a result of the disease. A variety of factors have been implicated in the causation of IBD including genetics, race, diets etc. It is generally believed to be an autoimmune disorder, i.e. the person's immune system is the source of the problem. Stress does not cause the disease although it may exacerbate the flare up. In this regard, Chinese Qigong can directly strengthen the human's immune system at the first beginning of Qigong practice, Moreover, qigong can greatly relieve the effects of mental stress upon the physical form.

Looking inside the rectum and colon through a flexible tube (endoscope) that is inserted through the anus doctor can diagnosis colitis. During the exam, the doctor may take a sample of tissue (biopsy) from the lining of the colon to look at under the microscope.

Treatment by Western Medicine
Several drugs are useful in controlling Crohn's disease, but at this time there is no cure using western medicine. Mostly they are used  to correct nutritional deficiencies, to control inflammation, and to relieve abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding. Sulfasalazine can be used to lessens the inflammation, especially in the colon. Side effects such as nausea, weight loss, vomiting, heartburn, headache and diarrhea may occur. Other drugs such as melamine or 5-SA agents can be a help. In some serious cases, steroid drugs, antibiotics, or drugs that affect the body's immune system such as azathioprine or 6-mercaptopurine are needed. of the intestine is the most common complication with IBD which is due to the facts that the disease tends to thicken the bowel wall with swelling and fibrous scar tissue, narrowing the passage. Crohn's disease also may cause deep ulcer tracts that burrow all the way through the bowel wall into surrounding tissues, into adjacent segments of intestine, into other nearby organs such as the urinary bladder or vagina, or into the skin. They are a common complication and often are associated with pockets of infection. The areas around the anus and rectum often are involved by such infection.

Certain herbs have anti-inflammatory effects upon the layers of intestine walls. Ginkgo blob has demonstrated anti-disease activity in some researches of IBD. Herbs like licorice and the bioflavonoid quercitin have some soothing effects on the intestinal wall. Aloe Vera can help to heal ulceration. Chinese herb formulations containing, among other things, extract of cinnamon and angelica, relieve spasm and inflammation and dissipate pathological heat, to some extent.

Crohn's disease also can affect other parts of the body. These complications include various forms of arthritis, kidney stones, gallstones, skin problems, inflammation in the eyes or mouth, or other diseases of the liver and billiard system.

Crohn's disease can be helped by surgery, but it cannot be cured by surgery because inflammation tends to return in areas of the intestine next to the area that has been removed. The diseased section of bowel is often removed. Then doctor will connect the bowel that is  cut above and below the diseased area. Both UC and CD increase the risk of incurring cancer. The risk for cancer of colon depends on the extent and duration of ulcerative colitis. Surveillance colonoscopies are recommended for UC.

Crohn's disease often recurs after surgery. So the patient and doctor should reconsider carefully the consequences of surgery.

DaMo Qigong Practice: Deploying Internal Medicine to Achieve Cure of Crohn's Diease

1. Mechanism
Qigong, an ancient science and art of health, is a traditional form of Chinese energy excise and healing art for the body, mind, and spirit. Qigong is ideal for establishing emotional balance in today's stressful lifestyle and for helping to heal seriously ill people--those struggling with chronic degenerative conditions such as paralysis, cancer, asthma, cardiovascular and other more.

People will ask us what the mechanism of qigong is. Generally speaking, like in a rice field, western medicine always have the trend of using all their means to kill the weeds. But in the meantime the rice shoots incur damage, more or less. Most patients know what the results is when they receive radiotherapy and chemotherapy. But for qigong practice, at beginning it will directly strengthen patients immune system and more deep concerning inner energy system. In a word, it seeks to harmonize the relationship of all internal organs and drop the idea to distinguish which is friend and which is enemy. How to achieve such aim, you may ask? For a tree, at the very beginning there is no division of which is normal and which abnormal for it stays at initiative stage of the very root. But later different branches develop into various forms, and good, bad, long, short, etc. come into being. By adopting special means we can reverse the process of growing up and take the course of sailing against the life current to return back to the very beginning. Once we reach that state there should be no any "branches" possibly existing to wield effects upon our physical existence. Qigong is just the method of how to take the reversing course.

As like to let the rice shoots get stronger and stronger, the weeds will have less and less effects upon the rice shoots. As the process continues, sometime the weeds will have no effect upon the rice shoots. Later the time will come of the rice shoots overpowering weeds. And people naturally know why qigong can prolong patients' life expectancy, at least. If patients can properly proceed with the practice, qigong can bring them much more than they could expect, especially the serene happiness general people could never have the chance to experience throughout their life time. Yes, somebody may ridicule at the theory, but no proper practice for a certain period people will never know what the qigong is. Qigong is the study of practice rather than just a theory. Qigong theory will be always beyond the thinking sphere of the persons who never seriously join the practice for a time.

2. Qigong Treatment Course
2-1. Taking Chinese Herbal Medicine
Patients with IBD are advised to take some Chinese medicine which can help open up channels and collaterals quickly and strengthen immune system. Here we recommend IBD Recovery Pill Series. In most of the herbal formulas the herbs should work together to open up channels in a quick way and strenghten Yin and Yang, make for the balance of Yin and Yang, quicken the blood flow, enhance the presence of Defensive Qi and Operative Qi, enrich the blood and Qi. Etc. Taking such herbal medicine can lay a good foundation for Qigong practice to quickly take effect: first is the Yang Qi can have a play ground to arise and reside in. Second, Qi can arise quickly in large amount. When Qi arises from the very deep Qi Ocean the internal organs would function more harmoniously with each other and they would like more to behave as like an integrated unit which can effect incredible power in launching overwhelming force against any potential pathogenic factors.

2-2. Persistent Self-Practice
When channels are opened up and evil Qi is driven away, the excellent environment for Qi to arise comes to be ready and patients should pracitice diligently with the practice every day. Many patients failed to gain final success because they don't have a strong will power in persisting in the practice every day. Qigong practice pay much attention upon how to discipline the false heart. There exist no diseases that cannot be cured, yet there always exist the false heart that could not be dead. So the first step for qigong practice is to discipline the false heart. Zhong Liu once said:" I am a dead man still alive. I can see nothing, I can hear nothing, my thinking ability is gong. I have no consciousness of my existence." All these mean I am dead, yet my mind-will still keeps its presence motionlessly in the infinite emptiness. What am I? I have been dead for thousands of years."

The key for successfully achieving incredible progress lies in rapid storing up adequate Yang Qi, then with it to open up the twelve meridians, Ren channels and Du channel, and the eight extra meridians. When Yang Qi and Primeval Qi smoothly circulate in all channels and collaterals, all evil pathogenic factors will be gradually die out.

There are many postures available for treating IBD in Qigong. If patients persist in practicing these postures six hours every day in a proper way, and keep free from all other stray thoughts intruding upon the heart, there will be no despair anymore! When our heart, as like the root of a tree, falls ' ill,' our body will fall ill. When our heart keeps away from all 'diseases,' our body will be healthy always!

Lee, Xuhan, a great Qigong master accomplished in Tao, once said: " When only the last breath is left along there still exists the opportunity for the patient to recuperate their health again."

For proper Qigong practice, the following lists all the essential things patients should pay attention to:

  • Strong will power in persisting in the practice every day
  • Preserve enough Jing for it is the physical foundation for Qigong progress.
  • Fall the heart into a constant stillness, get rid of all disturbance, abstain from experiencing too much emotional changes.
  • Lead a very simple life, take vegetables rather than food of cold, pepery, fat, too sweet nature.
  • Choose to practice very effective school of Qigong, which can prevent patients from wasting too much time.

The first is to discipline the heart throughly, and cleanse the heart of all stray thoughts. The second is continue with the practice three hours every day. The third is to take some herbal medicine and puncture some points in order to lay a good foundation for Qigong practice. The fourth is to pay much attention upon the food you take.
