November 2022 - Qigong with Grounding – a Science-Backed Healing Practice

Program Host: Vicki Dello Joio

8:30 - 9:30 PM Eastern

At its root, Qigong practice is about the relationship between Human, Earth and the Sun. It’s a correspondence between heaven and human. Grounding/earthing refers to this process connecting our body to an internal, neutral/balanced state with the Earth.


Industrialization and modernization expose us to more and more EMF, radiation and Wi-Fi in our environment. At the same time, living in high-rise buildings far above the Earth creates more inflammation-related diseases and health problems. Inflammation and pain are, more or less, a manifestation of electron deficiency. Qigong with grounding will reverse the deficiency!


Free radicals refer to unstable atoms that damage cells,causing illness and aging. When one breathes, metabolism is mainly oxygen with oxidation process. The absorption of ingested nutrients through oxidation provides the energy needed for life, but also produces harmful meta bolites called “free radicals”.


Studies have connected oxidative stress due to free radicals to:

•      Central nervous system diseases (e.g., Alzheimer’s and other dementias)

•      Cardio vascular disease due to clogged arteries (blood thickness)

•      Auto immune and inflammatory disorders (rheumatoid arthritis and cancer)

•      Cataracts and age-related vision decline

•      Age-related changes in appearance, such as loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, graying hair,hair loss, and changes in hair texture

•      Diabetes

•      Genetic degenerative diseases (Huntington’s disease and Parkinson’s)


Qigong with grounding can solve all the problems caused by free radicals! When grounding, being in direct contact with the earth, the body becomes suffused with negative-charged free electrons and balances itself outwith more energy and better health.

Dr. Kevin W Chen, Ph.D. MPH is an associate professor in the Center for Integrative Medicine and Department of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Dr. Chen is a NIH-funded investigator conducting research on substance abuse, treatment for addiction and arthritis. He is also involved in clinical studies investigating the clinical feasibility and efficacy of Qigong therapy for treating osteoarthritis and addiction, including clinical trials and behavior therapy development studies, and has long been interested in the scientific study of qigong and its medical applications. As a long-time practitioner of qigong, Dr. Chen has observed many unexplained successes in qigong healing, and is willing to subject this ancient therapy to serious scientific examination. His major research interests include research methodology, substance abuse, stress management, and health applications of energy therapy and mind-body integrative medicine. Dr. Chen is among the few scientists who have both first-hand knowledge of qigong practice and active involvement in scientific research of Qigong in the U.S. His research includes both verification of qi energy through laboratory detectors, and medical application of qigong therapy in clinical settings. He has been involved in clinical trials to examine the feasibility and efficacy of adding qigong therapy in treating heroin and cocaine addiction,as well as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, cancer and chronic pain.  He is the associate editor-in-chief of the English textbook "Chinese Medical Qigong" (2010) and actively involved in teaching medical Qigong to patients and general public.  Dr. Chen is passionate about the power of mind and self-healing, and is actively involved in helping cancer patients and their family recovery through self-healing methods and change of attitude, behavior pattern and lifestyle.
