Beliefs about illness and healing:

In a book, founder and current leader, Li Hongzhi, contrasts qigong healing treatments with those found in conventional hospitals:


Hospital tests and examinations cannot detect the fundamental cause of an illness. This is because medical tests can only function in:

"... this dimension and cannot see fundamental causes that exist in other dimensions."

bullet The actual cause of illness is not a virus or bacterial, or some other pathogen. It is karma.


"The root cause of the patient’s illness is an intelligent entity that exists in another dimension."

bullet Qigong masters are able to use their super-human vision to see the internal functioning of their client's body, much like a CAT scan. 9
