Description

Robert Rodgers, PhD from Parkinsons Recovery, interviews Bianca Molle who discusses how her Qigong practice has helped reverse her own Parkinson's symptoms. Qigong is the form of medical Qigong that matches ancient movements, meditation and sounds to facilitate the healing of modern medical conditions. Qigong is beneficial to Parkinson's for one primary reason. It reconnects the mind and the body. This connection helps the mind focus, the brain create new neural connections, the body move with ease and the heart discover inner joy and happiness. Studies have now mapped remarkable changes in the brain that result from practices like Qigong. Through her own research investigations Bianca learned about how Qigong had been reputed to help Parkinson's. In June, 2009, a little over a year since her Parkinson's disease diagnosis, Mingtong Gu of the Chi Center brought Zhineng Qigong to Marin County. Within her first few minutes of practice, she began to feel relief. Symptoms gradually abated. In September of 2010 she was declared symptom-free of the disease by the neurologist. She continues to feel better and stronger in all aspects of her life.

About Bianca Molle

Bianca Molle is a native of Long Island, New York, and remained on the East Coast until age twenty-three. Upon graduation from Hofstra University and a year of teaching high school English, she ventured to the San Francisco area. After several years in Northern California, Bianca moved to LA. She was married and had two small sons when Bianca moved to the Midwest and spent some time in both the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in Cincinnati, Ohio. She returned to the San Francisco area in the early 1980's. Along with her move to Marin County California came single parenthood and a full-time teaching career. After acquiring a Masters in Education with a focus on Special Education, Bianca spent a number of years teaching both learning challenged and developmentally delayed students. She may have done that anyway, but received some intense motivation and inspiration from her family situation: Her younger son is autistic. "I think that advocating for Justin's autism advanced my learning curve for handling my own management of Parkinson's disease. I was not traumatized by my own diagnosis- it could not compare to how I felt as the parent of a beautiful infant diagnosed over thirty years ago with what was then considered a hopeless condition. My relatively smooth sail through Parkinson's I greatly attribute to the 'School of Hard Knocks' degree bestowed upon me by life as Justin's mother." After receiving her Parkinson's disease diagnosis, she just skipped the shock, sorrow, self-condemnation and self-pity and went straight into self-activism. Bianca is currently a Qigong wellness coaching with a focus on Parkinson's. Her email address is: bianca1738@aol.com.
