Dr. Ted J. Cibik, ND, DMQ (China), H/FI



About Ted

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 a child.

Dr. Cibik is currently the Executive Director of Inner Strength Health and Education Center. He sits on the Board of directors of the National QiGong Association. Previously his posts included Overseas Dean of Hunan University of TCM (China) and East Coast Director in Medical Qigong for the International Institute of Medical QiGong.

Ted has been described as a down to earth, fun and provocative speaker who speaks from the heart to provide a unique and moving experience for the audience.

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.
