Ted J. Cibik, ND, DMQ (China), H/FI
Having one’s last rites performed twice before the age
of twelve gives one a very unique perspective on the relationship
between living and dying, what healing truly is, and the hierarchy
of important issues in life. Dr. Ted Cibik has spoken to thousands
of people about how to truly heal the root of all illness by addressing
what he calls the triune nature of mankind – the mental,
physical and spiritual interplay of being human. His unique journey
of surviving cancer and terminal asthma through self-discipline,
education, and study is remarkably inspiring.
Ted Cibik, ND, DMQ has been introduced to audiences as a Renaissance
Man, Sifu, doctor, healer, researcher, and Taoist priest, who
has studied and trained in such diverse fields as science, healing,
spirituality, and martial arts. He began training in martial arts
and meditation at the age of 5 as a means to control his congenital
asthma, and he became a Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor (ND)
in order to help himself and others. Looking for a more profound
path to healing, he continued his explorations with a formal education
in Chinese Medicine. Dr. Cibik found Medical Qigong, an esoteric
branch of Chinese medicine, and graduated as a Doctor of Medical
Qigong (DMQ) from Beijing Medical QiGong Science & Traditional
Chinese Medicine Research Institute. His post-graduate study was
completed in Chinese Medical oncology.
His current research on immunology has brought frequent invitations
to be a guest on PBS television to share his insights into complementary
medicine and stress management. Dr. Cibik has often been asked
to speak before the National Institutes of Health on QiGong and
exercise science. In addition he has worked with the American
Lung Association providing much needed guidance on breathing techniques
for asthmatic children living in inner cities.
In 1991, he built his 30-acre wellness facility of Feng Shui
design on a mountaintop in the healing serenity of nature. Dr.
Cibik is the author of Air Passages: Surviving Asthma Naturally,
The Inner Strength Fitness Journal and numerous videos on QiGong.
He still enjoys helping others to heal, teaching martial arts,
Ch’an meditation, and the animal rescue work he began as

intellectual capacity? How do you regain control of your private

Lessons from the Shaolin Temple™:
5 Hours a Week for Total Transformation
In order to survive as a species, humans have had to search for
concise, tested and proven ways to become healthy in the shortest
period of time. Many of the ancient truths are being revitalized
today in the form of “therapy.” In 520BCE a concise
system was brought to the monks of the Shaolin Temple in China.
This system included martial arts, QiGong and Ch’an
Buddhism. Rather than re-invent that which is already proven on
the battlefield and under the highest conditions of stress where
there is no margin for error, let us learn from the ancient traditions
before they are lost. Modern terms and catch phrases like “training
the core,” “proprioception,” “interval
training,” “periodization” (the list goes on)
are already established and outlined in correct order, time allotments
and exercise sequence by ancient practices. Learn to maximize
your investment of time and energy with methods that have been
proven for thousands of years and not the latest trend.
