(Presented online at the 7th Public Health Conference on March 16-18, 2021. Case reports shows that practicing Falun Gong is beneficial for enhancing public health and wellness.)
A cost-free and natural self-care practice of Falun Gong meditation could be the alternative approach for enhancing public health and wellness.
Severe chronic conditions are incurable medical issues that affect quality of life for individuals. These chronic ailments are an economic burden for society and country. Moreover, long-term uses of drugs often lead to complications.
Enhancing Public Health & Wellness: Aim
The objective of this presentation is to illustrate the effectiveness of Falun Gong on patients with different severe chronic conditions.
Using three case examples from clinical/medical settings in Vietnam, the presenters show how Falun Gong can help enhance public health and wellness in the community.
The first case was a 28-year-old woman with right iliac fossa region pain. For two years, the patient tried to conceive but without success. She became pregnant twice consecutively. However, both pregnancies ended in spontaneous abortion. Gynecologic exams showed she had pelvic inflammatory disease. Patient also suffered from stress and anxiety. After 8 months of practicing Falun Gong, patient became pregnant and later gave birth to a baby.
The second case study was a 50-year-old woman with recurring fever, accompanied by weight loss and fatigue. She was diagnosed with autoimmune thyroiditis and treated by long-term corticoid. Her symptoms reduced after she attended the Falun Gong 9-day seminar. The symptoms completely disappeared after practicing Falun Gong for 6 months.
The third case study was a 63-year-old woman diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Patient’s general status was so poor that the oncologist decided to refuse treatment. She went home, depressed. However, after one week of practicing Falun Gong, she felt better. Four months later she returned to the hospital for a follow-up visit. To everyone’s surprise, her test result show negative for malignancy. It has been 4 years from then, and she is living a healthy life.
Enhancing Public Health with Falun Gong
All 3 patients reported symptoms reduction or disappearance shortly after starting Falun Gong meditation practice. Their lifestyle change and following the principles of Zhen-Shan-Ren (or Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in English) helped to maintain the treatment effect and long-term health of the patients. It can thus be said that practicing Falun Gong helps to enhance public health and wellness.
Falun Gong is free-of-charge and easy to learn; it is the solution of choice to nurture good behaviors resulting in better health and wellness for the community.
Popularizing Falun Gong in the Vietnamese communities and the global societies should be one for public health consideration.
These case reports demonstrate that Falun Gong has a powerful and beneficial effect on patients with chronic diseases.
