The 2 Types of Qigong Practice (Internal & External Elixir)

August 27, 2022 by VAHVA Fitness

Grandmaster Jiang Yu Shan describes the 2 types of Qigong practice - the internal and external elixir. Wai Dan Qigong and Nei Dan Qigong.

Ancient qigong brought us a completely new awareness and understanding of the human body.


The entire framework of seeing life was different from the West - everything was holistic and all-encompassing. The methods dug deeper than the surface and touched the body and mind in depths unprecedented in the modern methods.


The most marvellous thing was that it all happened naturally without the use of chemicals. 


You see, the modern medicine has control over your brain chemistry and hormones but through external means: through exogenous hormones (TRT, PEDs, birth control) and pharmaceuticals drugs (antidepressants, stimulants and so on).


These all work but at what cost? All of them cause severe side effects and many of them are almost impossible to come off without suffering from withdrawals that can even kill you (as seen in the case of antidepressants).


Moreover, they become a crutch for your happiness and you become dependent on something external. Ultimately, it's the Big Pharma making money of your health by keeping you sick and offering only temporary bandages.


What if we told you that there was a way to get similar benefits and effects but without the use of external means, without the means that turn you into a slave with poor health and no will of its own?


Qigong was one of the building blocks for us. In the past they didn't have anything but herbal medicine. Yet, the ancient masters found countless ways to impact your brain chemistry and affect the health of your organs through natural and internal methods alone.


Through breath, movement, mantras and intensity of your emotions, you got real power over the functions of your body. 


Some aspects were in the shadow realms of the psyche, in the dark parts of the human mind. Masculine traits that are considered toxic and unacceptable in the West… but in the past they were the necessary survival mechanisms of the past warriors. 


Although Qigong is only a small part of our overall methodology, this ancient wisdom became an essential tool and framework for us which opened doors to even deeper understanding of the human body and mind.


This knowledge and the moments of time we have recorded on video after visiting the shrines of Tainan 4 times and filming close to 50 hours of material.
