The principles for health recovery or maintenance are easy; we simply have to realign our lifestyle with the Universal Laws and the Laws of Nature. No fight is required for healing, no need to conquer illnesses as illnesses can only take place when somehow we obstruct the way of perfect health. Illnesses are in fact outer healthy reactions informing us about inner unhealthy situations. They are some kind of alarms indicating us that something needs some readjustments, and that some un-necessary efforts need to be dropped.

There are many reason to clean the internal organs, and both traditions, from India and China respectively, agree that a sluggish immune system, poor digestion caused by overtaxed eliminative organs, and clogged emotions that can reside in the liver, gallbladder, or heart, for example, can impede spiritual progress.

In this article, Paul refers to “qigong” as practices that generally deal with circulating chi through physical movements or the movement of the mind, dealing with the body, its energy, and physical well-being. The “16 neigong” are the hierarchy of skills drawn from the Taoist science of energy flows, used to systematically upgrade your mind, your body, and energy. Neigong practices span from basic chi and body work to the deeper levels of Taoist Meditation.

Separate and combine is an ancient Chinese principle for deep learning that has been used for millennia. The principle states that once a basic movement, set or form has been absorbed or established the practitioner seeks to tease out the individual components before moving on to study that movement, set or form as it is practised with all its other components. The ancient Chinese found that this was the most effective and efficient method for learning any new skill and stabilizing it in the body.
