Testimonial Highlight: Successful Recovery from Near-Death Chemo Aftereffects

“In Sept, ’08, I was diagnosed with Stage 4B tonsilar cancer. Treatment began at a major cancer center at the end of October. I underwent 33 radiation treatments and 6 days of chemo. My cancer was cured and I will always be thankful for that but the aftereffects of treatment left me completely debilitated. I was a shell of my former self. I had lost 50 pounds, and I had no strength, no ability to relate, no interest in relating or participating in life in anyway. I knew it would take time. However, my recovery was compromised by 4 aspiration pneumonias, three of which almost killed me.

My wife decided it was time for me to see Master Hou. I began seeing Master Hou twice weekly in June, ’09. I will admit that I was doubtful of this “alternative” approach to Western medicine but I’m no longer doubtful. I feel vigorous, alert, more interested in life and much, much stronger. I have made it 5 months now with no reoccurrence of aspiration pneumonia.

In addition, the range of motion in my neck and upper body was seriously compromised by the radiation. I suffered neck spasms so severe that my head was almost immobile. Master Hou has helped this significantly.

I have not eaten by mouth for more than a year due to the scar tissue caused by the radiation. With Master Hou’s help, I’m optimistic that I will regain at least partial functioning of these muscles.

Master Hou is a passionate and dedicated healer who also happens to have a great sense of humor. It is a pleasure working with him.”

A Better Me

Master Hou’s QiGong renders the discovery, development, and understanding of
qi accessible to all. The exercises are practical and effective. With a small
commitment of time and effort anyone can reap the benefits.
I began the study of QiGong with Master Hou in 1999. The exercises have
become an integral part of my daily life. Through this practice I have been
able to greatly strengthen my qi. This in turn has improved my immune system. I
very rarely become ill. If a symptom does appear I am able to apply one or more
of the exercises to the particular problem with good result. Other physical
improvements would include clearer skin and increased vitality. A more balanced
and positive outlook is also a benefit. Master Hou’s QiGong is a very effective
natural path to good health and overall well-being as it enables one to
experience the intrinsic healing properties of universal energy in a very
down-to-earth way.
The benefits I have reaped from Master Hou’s QiGong are many and great. My
life without the daily practice of QiGong would be diminished.

Life Changing Experience

In the spring 2009, and again in the summer 2010, during an aerobic class at the gym, I suddenly felt a loss of energy, no strength and almost fainted. Since that episode my life changed dramatically as I had to spend about six months in bed. Due to this tremendous weakness the only things I could do was to sleep and to eat an enormous amount of food even though I was continuously loosing weight.
I began seeing many doctors and had all sorts of exams to evaluate my condition which could never be diagnosed.

In December 2010, I said to myself: “As doctors can not help me, I will find a way to get back in shape!” I am from Italy. I took 6 months leave from my work and came to US to rest and to dedicate time to myself. From my home in California I began researching possible solutions to my conditions from western medicine to various holistic approaches. Finally, around the end of my leave, I was in New York and had the chance to meet Master Hou. He was the first and only person who told me he might be able to help me.
After the first four treatments I felt a bit better, my hunger reduced substantially, my sleep improved and I did not feel as exhausted as I had been.
Since returning to Italy in July 2011, I come every 3 to 4 months to be treated with Master Hou’s old form of Traditional QiGong Energy Healing for about three weeks at a time. By now I have taken Master Hou’s fasting classes twice and plan to take the two scheduled this year. My overall health has improved considerably. I start to feel strong enough now that I am able to manage a normal life including regular sport activities. I am also experiencing greater mental clarity and focus.
I know there’s still work to do. And through Master Hou’s Qigong exercises and his cooking hints I am learning a lot. Now I know what I can do and how I can change my approach for a better health.

I am very grateful to my family and friends for the support they have been given me during this period.
Master Hou is a passionate and dedicated healer.
Thanks a lot Master Hou.

Elephantiasis

Dear All
I first saw Master Hou 12 years ago when no-one in New york could help me overcome elephantiasis which i got in the Amazon from the sand flies.
Falarial is a parasite extremely difficult to diagnosis and even harder to cure. I was led to Master Hou after being inflicted with this disease for 6 months and after 3 months of constant treatment with Master Hou I was cured.
Again in April of this year I was inflected with another skin disorder and again something that allopathic medicine has not found a cure for. During a meditation I recalled master Hou and returned to New York in order to start treatment with him. I had an extremely bad rash all over my body and only after my treatment days with this incredible healer did the rash calm down until it was much improved after a month of treatments. Unfortunately I had to leave New York thereby having to stop my treatments and have since not made a full recovery, however i look forward to returning to the city in order to continue working with master hou as i know only this work will alleviate my current condition entirely.
I believe Master Hou to be a true and wonderful healer and recommend for anyone to consult with him
