Tai chi for cencer disease

Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues. Cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems. Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Cancer patients often experience a diminished quality of life due to disease symptoms and side effects of treatment.
Cancer research led by Dr Byeongsang Oh from the University of Sydney, indicates that medical Qigong significantly improves quality of life in cancer patients. The study reports that cancer patients who used medical Qigong (combination of gentle exercise and meditation) experienced improved levels of cognitive functioning and less inflammation.
Several studies have indicated that Tai Chi and Qigong have many other health benefits, such as decreased heart rate, decreased blood pressure, lowered lipid levels, decreased levels of circulating stress hormones and enhanced immune function.
