I have also over the years spend much time and money investigating and being involved with scientific research into the phenomenon of Qi and Qigong as well as other forms of shamanistic healing and mystical phenomena from China, India and Tibet. I think that with my unique position and training as a former magician and hypnotist with a college minor is Psychology plus a PhD in Naturopathic medicine that I am very capable of spotting trickery and chicanery when it is present in these arts.
I believe that I am able to objectively and dispassionately examine these methods and provide a realistic non-mystical approach to understanding them. It is this and more I will try to provide for our readers in the coming issues. I cannot guarantee you will agree with all of my postulations but I do guarantee that all we say herein will be based upon firm personal and scientific research and long years of experience.
