Can someone tell me if someone learns Neigong or internal skill who has :?paranoid schizophrenia and OCD if they can learn it these i mean The type of Neigong i mean is internal skill the meditation one called which is this: QI GONG (CHI KUNG) 1. Religious & Mysterious I understand that there are some kinds of Qi gong that are religious and mysterious. Taoist Qi Gong which involves postures of sitting or stances, generates Qi inside the body. The movement of the Qi cycles round the body vertically up from the back, and down from the forehead at the front . My understanding is that the critical success factor is the generation of Qi, or heat generated from inside of the abdomen area. Otherwise, it is just pure imagination. I would not suggest this sort of Qi Gong to self-learners who may involve mental disorders without proper guidance from experienced masters. and this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neigong Because someone told me that Traditionally neigong and qigong were not prescribed to individuals that had paranoid schizophrenia or other mental disorders. These practices we designed for individuals in a healthy mental state, and are inappropriate (potentially harmful) for any individual diagnosed with mental illness.
