"And That's Not All" - What the Chi Machine Has Done for Me
As I begin to write this testimony, I am aware that it may come across as a biased sales pitch. I hate that from myself or from anyone else, and so do you. However, I can’t help but speak and have good reason to do so.I believe the Chi Machine is one of the most wonderful recent mechanical inventions. Why? Because it is designed using fundamental, health-promoting principles that have greatly benefited me and many others I know personally.
First, let me say that its apparent simplicity is deceptive. Don't let it fool you. When a friend first introduced us to the Chi Machine, I thought, "What can this gadget do for anybody, especially me?" I wasn't impressed. But he left it with us for a few days and we began to use it. My aunt immediately took to it and said, "Victor, I like what it does for me!" At first, I found nothing impressive, but after about five or six sessions, I began to experience that tingling in my body that everybody else using the Chi was talking about...that "life force," which is what the Chinese word "chi" means.
But that's not all. My neck was beginning to feel better. When I was fourteen, I had an injury to the vertebrae in my neck, which has given me pain and discomfort ever since (over four decades). Chiropractic treatment has helped me significantly but there was always the need for regular visits. When I began to use the Chi, it wasn't long, maybe about three weeks, before I began to realize that I was feeling better. Not only was the discomfort gone, but I also had a sense of well being I had never experienced before.
The reason I doubted the Chi Machine would help my neck was because the movement originates at the feet. By the time it comes to the neck, I figured there would be little left. I was pleasantly surprised to find otherwise.
Since using the Chi Machine, my aunt hasn't been to a chiropractor, though she had been going regularly. Her two sons rarely go now, though they too had been going frequently.
And that's not all. I found that I was getting energized! Before, I often felt fatigued and would not feel like getting up many mornings. Suddenly, I found myself waking at about 3:30 in the morning, refreshed and ready to go...full of energy! I suppose that can be good or bad, but I prefer energy to fatigue.
And that's not all. One night I found myself breathing with ease through my nose. All my life I had difficulty breathing with my mouth closed (you know how you can wake up with drool pools on your pillow?). A friend, Paul Cohen, called me from Helena coincidentally and told me he had discovered the same thing using the Chi Machine. "My left nostril is clear, Victor," he said. I said, "Same here!" (The last time my nasal passages were like that was in a swimming pool over 30 years ago when my nose somehow cleared...I don't know how.)
And that's not all. I didn't even realize the discomfort in my legs day and night...I had lived with it much of my life. You see, I messed up my right knee badly in a skiing accident in 1971 and my other knee bends too far backward. Physiotherapists told me I needed to learn to stand with the knee slightly forward or I would suffer in later years. I never could learn to do that. But they were right; hence the discomfort in both legs. At night, I would toss and turn, put my legs on a pillow or gather covers between my knees to help. After about three months on the Chi, I realized the discomfort had stopped! I had not realized how much I was suffering, until the pain was gone.
And that's not all. I also suffered from sciatica, and chiropractors did not help. I went for walks to work out the pain. That helped, but not a lot. After three months on the Chi, I had no sciatica.
And that's not all. (Yes, I have been road kill.) I had bursitis in my shoulders...from subluxations in the neck due to my injury, I believe. Chiropractic treatments had helped immensely, however I could not rid myself completely from stiffness and pain. I could not raise my arms straight up or lay them on the floor over my head comfortably. That too changed for me in three months on the Chi Machine.
And that's not all. On occasion, while traveling, I would get constipated and when that happened, it usually lasted two or three days. I have discovered that since I have been using the Chi, I still get constipated but it lasts only a day. Coincidence? It can only be the Chi, because nothing else has changed. Many others are experiencing these same benefits using the Chi Machine.
And that's not all. I sleep better nights. And who wouldn't with all the things the Chi Machine is doing for me?
And that's not all. One morning, after 3 ½ months on the Chi, I awoke and looked at my bedroom closet. I saw disarray, yet I saw, there and then, what I could do about it. That sort of thing had never happened to me before. You see, I have lived with a disorganized mind...ask my wife; ask my friends and those who know me.
I saw all the clanging metal hangers that alarmed me while I silenced them to keep from waking others. I saw that I didn't need them; I removed the spares that were never used; I took clothing that I seldom wore from the center of the closet and shoved it to the side; I took the clothing I used daily and put it in the center. Subconsciously, these things had bugged me all along, but I never had the mind to identify and solve the problem. Suddenly it was all there.
That same morning I had a number of unrelated things on my mind that had come to me in the night and early morning. Nothing unusual about that. What was unusual was that I remembered every one of them so that I could write them all down. Very seldom did this occur. I always found myself troubled and pondering for a few days what it was I had forgotten. This was new!
I also had a great realization by way of a solution to a problem dawn on me then that I won’t specify now (what a morning that was!) Since then, I have been remembering more, thinking more clearly, and enjoying it. I admit, however, I can't honestly say the Chi Machine was wholly responsible, because I have been taking a supplement called "Brain Booster" for a few weeks. Maybe in this matter, the Chi Machine doesn't get all the credit. I suspect it, though, because the brain needs a good oxygen supply and the Chi supplies it.
And here's more. Though the company does not claim the Chi Machine to be a weight loss apparatus, many people have testified to losing weight without dieting since using the Chi Machine. Always fighting to control my weight, I suddenly realized that though it had been steadily climbing, the weight had suddenly leveled off and began to go down. Four pounds in four months. No dieting. The Chi Machine is the only thing to which I can attribute that weight loss; many others testify of similar results.
And that's still not all. I will not advocate replacing exercise with the Chi Machine. That wouldn’t be right at all. But you know, when I don't get out for my one or two mile walks to control weight and get exercise now, I don't feel so guilty if I get on the Chi Machine. I have some mental mercy here. I know I'm losing weight and not gaining; I know I'm getting exercise benefits, including that all important oxygen.
And the benefits keep coming in. In the spring, I worked two days in the yard—mowing by hand about half an acre, raking leaves and wheel barrowing a total of about a yard of gravel in six trips on a slight uphill stretch. At 55, I think most people would appreciate that you don't do that kind of work once a year and not feel it the next day. Right after work that evening, as usual, I went on the Chi Machine. I slept like a baby that night, and the next morning, had no stiffness whatsoever.
I'm not finished. I enjoy the Chi Machine. I look forward to getting on it, unlike an exercise machine. You know why? I do! Two reasons:
I don't have to do the work...the Chi Machine does it. It gives exercise benefits in short order, without the stress and strain.
I get the exhilaration from it that long distance runners, for example, may get after running for some time. But without the work and discomfort! I love it. One lady tells me that when she gets on it for 30 minutes, it is like an "out of body" experience. I haven't gotten there. I'm at about 12 minutes (not that you need more than that. Most use the Chi Machine between 10 and 12 minutes per session).
Why does the Chi Machine do all this? Simple...I think. It was invented by a Japanese doctor, Dr. Shizuo Inoue, after 38 years of research into how oxygen affects the human system. He and his colleagues concluded that lack of oxygen was the cause of most, if not all, illness. We simply do not get enough of it. He designed a precise machine to provide that oxygen, simply, effectively, safely, cheaply, and enjoyably. It stimulates the lymphatic system; it services the immune system; it gives the body the wherewith to deal with any problems it encounters, by itself. That is why anybody and everybody benefits.
I call the Chi Machine and the HotHouse (FIR Dome) (another wonderful invention from the same company) private, portable, preventative and curative HOSPITALS...The enjoyable and effective kind. Truly!
Well, I may not have the dramatic testimony and instant results that many others have had with the Chi Machine like getting a remarkable measure of victory over arthritis, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, varicose veins, asthma, fibromyalgia, respiratory and circulatory problems, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder, migraines, stress, the list goes on and on... but how can I complain?
I'd pay much more for this machine. I am thankful that a fellow in Lethbridge was crippled up enough to try the Chi Machine, discover its benefits in a matter of days, then share it with others who in turn shared it with us.
The Chi Machine helps my wife and my son. It helps all those I know who use it (especially the aged and infirm) when they use it regularly...even when they don't. I can't help but talk about it. I haven't been as excited about a product on the market for a long time. And testimonies from so many others keep coming in.
Others promise more than they deliver. It's the opposite with the Chi Machine. It delivers more than it promises. That's okay by me. I would expect the same for you.
And one more thing. Yes, we sell these now...in a manner of speaking. I get so excited about these machines that I have to talk...and the Chi sells itself when people only get a chance to try it for themselves. You too will find the Chi paying off both health wise and financially. There aren't many people today who don't need some extra money...and there are few ways more enjoyable and rewarding than by helping others recover and maintain health.
Addendum to My Chi Machine Testimony
(In other words, "And That's Not All")
August 28, 2001
After a few more months of using the Chi Machine, I must report yet other very significant improvements to my health on this day, 28 August, 2001. For the past five years or so, I have had a pain in the groin, deep in the crease where leg meets abdomen. It would come and go, and I never did determine the cause of its recurrence nor its withdrawal. Today, I suddenly realized that it is gone. The only difference in my life that I know of is the Chi Machine. I suppose things pass with age, but these kinds of things are known to get worse, not better, let alone disappear.
My father had poor circulation in his feet. In my teen years, I experienced the same. I was told I had inherited the problem from my father. About six to eight weeks ago, I began to experience, in the night only, a pleasant itch in the balls of my feet, at the base of the toes. I knew something good was happening. I believe the circulation in my feet, after nearly half a century, is improved.
There's more. I know of people who, in their old age, after only two weeks on the Chi Machine, experienced a visible reduction in the size of their varicose veins, as well as great relief from discomfort and pain. I have had varicose veins for many years. Though they never bothered me, mine did not reduce in size, until about two months ago...after six months of using the Chi. So what if it took a bit longer? It's wonderful that it happened.
And that's still not all...there's better yet! About seven or eight years ago, I suddenly began to experience incontinence (put another way I had to have a bathroom nearby or twenty minutes from the time I had to go, I'd pee my pants). That problem was with me...until recently. I realized it was gone when we took a road trip to a convention in Las Vegas. At one point in the trip I had to go slightly. I left it and we kept driving. We passed rest area and town after rest area and town until, about 200 miles and over three hours later, we finally pulled over! I don't think that many people can do that. I don't recall ever being able to do that. But I did it this time. No more incontinence. And we were drinking our water all the way too. The only difference in lifestyle, aside from the fact that I haven't been getting my exercise, is the Chi. I have to state that in the last five years, we have been eating much more organic. That would make a difference too, and quite honestly, may be the prime cause of the correction. But I think the Chi Machine gets at least partial credit. I must insert here that God has done wonderful things for me recently, and to Him belongs all glory and credit, one way or another.
I'm not finished! In previous years, I would get off the lawn tractor after only about 60 to 80 minutes of mowing, finding myself stiff and needing to take a minute or two to recuperate. On the trip I just told you about, we drove 1200 miles there and 1200 back. We drove some long stretches at a time, and never once did I get out of the car stiff in the least. It seemed like I had been sitting or driving for only five or ten minutes. Perhaps this may be hard for some to believe. It was hard for even me to believe; I can only tell you my experience. You'll have to decide for yourself.
And there's more! Not only have I had wonderful experiences physically, but mentally. Because of the Chi Machine, I find myself more comfortable and with more confidence socially. While chiropractic adjustments greatly helped to relieve the anxiety, fear and depression caused by my neck injury, the Chi Machine helped even more. I am so very thankful to God for having provided.
My Chi Machine testimony was written in 2001. An update for the record:
As of May 2006, I have had no sciatica problems since 2001, and my neck is much better. My aunt (Lois) has not been to a chiropractor ever since she began using the Chi Machine. We all continue to use the HTE machines (Chi Machine, HotHouse, Electro Reflex Energizer) with great satisfaction and comfort.
