Bringing Qigong to a Climate Change conference

Qigong and Neurotransmitters

Qigong has an effect on the electrical  activity of the brain and there is well documented evidence around this. Specifically 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) increases (2 to 3 times in regular practitioners) in the Central Nervous System. Simply put this chemical intervention increases Serotonin. The implications are greater immunity, less need for food intake and better sleep. 5-HTP is imbalanced in Bi-polar and Schizophrenic patients. It is also implicated in Parkinson's disease where the production of dopamine is imbalanced - Qigong is increasingly becoming the exercise of choice for such patients. Lin Yagu.
