"Qigong as a part of the traditional Chinese medicine is similar to Western "meditation," Indian "Yoga" or Japanese "Zen," which can all be included in the category of traditional psychotherapy. A series of physiological and psychological effects occur in the course of Qigong training, but inappropriate training can lead to physical and mental disturbances."
"When l was an intern at the Lung Hua Hospital in Shanghai in
1982, l saw a small but steady stream of patients who were diagnosed with "qigong disease" or "taiji disease." Therefore,
people need to be a little careful when practicing qigong."
"Chinese Qigong practice can lead to abnormal phenomena,
or even mental disorders, especially if practised inappropriately.
During the years 1950 to 1965, there were reports that the
practice of Chinese Qigong could lead to a deviation reaction."
"We report on a 65-year-old woman who presented with acute right sided weakness because of an intracerebral (thalamic) haemorrhage.
As a Qigong enthusiast with a long standing history of hypertension, she developed a stroke syndrome soon after practising Qigong one morning."
"In daring to speak the truth about qigong, Sima Nan has been kicked, beaten, detained, tortured, ridiculed and accused of betraying his culture. He has suffered two crushed vertebrae, a crushed trachea and other injuries at the hands of those who were unhappy with Sima Nan's questioning the validity of qigong and
the claims of various qigong masters."
Book Review: Qigong: Chinese Medicine or Pseudoscience?
"The final chapter is a report by Beijing Medical University psychiatrist Zhang Tongling on the effects of qigong-induced psychosis (zuohuo rumo). Delusions, hallucinations, and psychosis can result when people (especially those who are highly susceptible to suggestion) become obsessed with practicing qigong, a condition frequently encouraged by their masters."
"Qi-gong psychotic reaction has been described in recent years as a new culture-bound syndrome in China. I have been able to find little information on it, although it is listed in the DSM-IV and the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders."
"The danger of belonging to such a cult is that it dulls the intellect. Some people become mindless robots and accept everything at face value instead of using logic, science or proper statistical methods. For example, a common claim is that a Master can cure any disease. This fact has never been verified."
"I spent much time finding Qigong magazines and books, reading many amazing accounts of the extraordinary abilities of Qigong Masters, and the healing powers of Qigong. I sampled many techniques with the hope of hitting on the right one for Kundalini help....."
"Many different martial Qigong styles were created based on the theories and principles of Buddhist and Daoist Qigong. This period lasted until the overthrow of the Qing dynasty in 1911; from that point Chinese Qigong training was mixed with Qigong practices
from India, Japan, and many other countries."
"In the past two decades many reports of mental disorders induced by qigong have been published in the Chinese psychiatric literature. In the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders, second revised edition (CCMD2-R), qigong induced mental disorder is found as a culture related mental disorder."
Interview with Li Hongzhi Falun Gong
"Everyone thinks that scientists invent on their own when in fact their inspiration is manipulated by the aliens. In terms of culture and spirit, they already control man."
"Sima Nan's sharp insight of Falun Gong enables us to finish this special article that is worth reading and reflecting again and again."
"This book was published in 1987 by unnamed "Authors" from Hangzhou and is a fairly thorough examination of schizophrenia from both a western and Chinese medical perspective. There is some satisfying material on the traditional understanding of mental disorders (principally dian-kuang) in Chinese medicine, with quotations and opinions from many doctors through the ages."
