Weight Loss with Qi Gong/Pigu

While in New England, I went to see Dr. Ming Wu in August, 2002. I was interested in alternative medicine and I needed to lose weight. I was surprised when he used the Chinese energy healing method for weight loss called Pi Gu. He proceeded to "shrink" my stomach from a few feet away. He told me to eat when hungry and drink when thirsty. He also showed me a few Pi Gu exercises. I was skeptical until my first meal. I wasn't hungry and ate about a fourth of my meal. I wasn't weak and my energy level increased. This continued and I lost ten pounds in seven weeks. I took Dr. Ming Wu's healing classes and learned how to do Pi Gu myself. I went back to California with renewed energy. I felt like swimming and walked the dogs every day. I enjoyed the light feeling in my stomach. Smaller portions were truly satisfying. I began to crave Brussels sprouts and fresher foods. What amazed me is how I stopped worrying and obsessing about food. By April, 2003, I had lost thirty-five pounds. Slender, (and receiving ample compliments), I was relieved that the burden of feeling heavy was behind me. I began to love clothes again. I began to help other people to heal. To this day, I maintain my entire weight loss. I can't imagine gaining it back because I know the feeling of being balanced and enjoy my relationship with food. I used to think that I had to work out like crazy and follow diets to be thin. Now, I know better. Pi Gu makes perfect sense to me. In my experience, it is the most natural and effective way to lose weight. I'm very grateful to Dr. Ming Wu.
