SEASON 4 EPISODE 2
APRIL 8th at 10 AM PT/ 7 PM CET
Non-pharmacological healing with body-mind practice
WITH DR. ROGER JAHNKE
We fear old age because it seems to us to be synonymous with “ill and helpless”. This can be the case, and probably is the case more often than it actually would need to be. Poor health in older years more often than not is the direct consequence of poor health in earlier years and of caring poorly for ourselves to become and stay healthy human beings.

HEIDI´S INTRO TO THE SHOW
Health is a state of mind
In our society illness means: go to the doctor, get a diagnosis and then do medications to abolish the symptoms which had made you become aware that something is wrong with your body. We expect that the healing comes from somewhere outside of us and we are willing to spend a lot of money on drugs, health food and what not. But “The Most Profound Medicine is Produced in the Human System — FOR FREE!” That is the conviction of our special guest Dr. Roger Jahnke whose mission it is to “train 1000s to Inspire Millions to Heal Themselves For Free!”
We need a true shift in consciousness, especially away from the victim mentality toward the attitude of grown up human beings who are informed about what they can do for their own benefit and who are willing to go all the way to reach the desired results. It is difficult to do so in a society with so many contradictions as ours: The celebration of youth on one side and the promotion of unhealthy lifestyles on the other side. The stigmatization of people who are actively caring for themselves in a genuine way as opposed to the continuous offers of quick solutions for everything which don’t do anything other than postponing and even increasing negative situations. Many of us are caught in the contradictions of our lives: Knowing somehow better and still not being able to really be proactive and consistent in doing what we understand we would need to do.
We are curious about what our guest, Dr. Roger Jahnke, will share with us about his projects and his successes in teaching people how to take their health into their own hands.

He is the Founder of “The Healer Within Foundation” and the Founder and Director of the “Institute of integral Qigong and Tai Chi”.

He serves as a consultant to hospitals, social service agencies, and corporations in Complementary and Integrative Medicine (CAM / IM), wellness, and medical cost reduction.
Dr Jahnke and the IIQTC have been involved in numerous research projects. In 2005, Dr. Jahnke was appointed to co-convene a National Expert Meeting on Qi Gong and Tai Chi in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the National Blueprint for Active Aging. The panel of experts agreed that the major challenge to the wide dissemination of these profound practices has been the exclusive dependence on masters or experts to transmit the teachings.
Dr. Jahnke is the author of “The Healer Within” (Harper San Francisco, 1999) used in body/mind programs worldwide. His most recent book, The Healing Promise of Qi (McGraw-Hill, 2002) has become an instant classic in the western literature on Qigong and Tai Chi.
