According to a report from the Leukemia Society of America, there were approximately 140,000 leukemia patients in the U.S in 1998. The overall five-year survival rate for leukemia patients is 42 percent. The five-year survival rate for leukemia has tripled in the last thirty-eight years. In 1960, the survival rate was 14 percent. People with acute leukemia usually die within months, while individuals with the chronic types may survive only a few years. The overall five-year survival rate for children with acute lymphocytic leukemia was 80 percent in 1998. In 1960, the survival rate was very low, only 4 percent. In 1998, 21,600 patients in the United States died from leukemia, approximately 12,000 males and 9,600 females, with an estimated 4,800 deaths from chronic lymphocytic leukemia and 1,300 deaths from acute lymphocytic leukemia. Chronic myelogenous leukemia accounted for an estimated 2,400 deaths and acute myelogenous leukemia accounted for another 6,600 deaths. Other forms of leukemia accounted for an additional 6,500 deaths.
In my professional life as an acupuncturist and healer, I have treated a large number of leukemia patients and the success rate has been very high. More than 90 percent of leukemia patients feel much better after one treatment. Compared to other types of cancer, leukemia is the easiest to treat and the success rate is the highest with the use of Tong Ren or Chi Gong therapy. I still cannot explain why energy healing is the most effective treatment for leukemia. Maybe it is due to the fact that leukemia affects only blood cells and there is no tumor involved. There is no need for the healing energy to work on any tumor cells; it only needs to revert the blood cell production back to a normal functioning state. I always feel very sad and sorry when I read stories in the Chinese newspapers about the possibility of young leukemia patients dying if they cannot find suitable bone marrow donors, especially with the knowledge that a bone marrow transplant may be made in vain, because there is no guarantee that it can save the patient’s life. There is a low percentage of success and the death rate for bone marrow transplant patients is quite high. I hope that the day will come when Tong Ren healing will become popular, and the lives of many leukemia patients will be saved.
Leukemia is a form of cancer involving bone marrow and blood. It is defined as an uncontrolled growth of blood cells. There are four types of leukemia: acute myelogenous, chronic myelogenous, acute lymphocytic, and chronic lymphocytic. The terms myelogenous or lymphocytic represent the type of cells involved. In Tong Ren healing, no matter what type of leukemia, the treatment is the same.
