we located Ted Cibik, who is a doctor of Naturopathy. Ted is a
wonderfully warm and gentle man who is very dedicated to his

name is Dirce Johnson. I have a condition called Celiac disease
which is also called non-tropical sprue. I was a sickly child and
told many times I would die....
Two years ago my body
staged an all out rebellion. My system was no longer responding to
my diet. I lost twenty percent of my body weight in three weeks and
it kept dropping. My hair was falling out. My nails broke off. I had
such terrible stomach pain. ....To make matters worse we made
a cross country move...I had a home I had always dreamed of with
space for my pets and my garden and my horse and I was too sick and
tired to do anything with it..
Our first priority
was to boost my energy and repair my immune system. Ted put me on a
combination of supplements, whish included his own immune boosting
formula. he also gave me advice on diet changes. A few weeks after
beginning this regime, both my sons and husband came down with
a nasty flu. I waited, with dread, for my bout of it. It never came.
It had been previously unheard of for me to be the only person in
the house who wasn't sick!
My weight stopped
fluctuating and my energy came back. I found I could actually stay
up past eight o'clock in the evening. I stated being able to keep up
with my teenage sons. the stomach aches went away. After a few
months, I was able to start jogging again. ...
My husband and
children are glad to have me back. I am such my health will continue
to improve. It is nice to know that there is someone I can trust to
help me if it does not."

April of 2003 I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). As a
Western scientist with a Ph.D. in biostatistics, my first action was
to get every treatment-related Western scientific paper on MS I
could find. After much review, it was crystal clear to me Western
medicine hasn't the first clue about the mechanisms, causes, or
solutions, in dealing with this disease.
trained in the martial arts for over a decade, and having studied
acupuncture theory for several years, the notion of the body as an
energetic matrix in the traditional Chinese medicine paradigm was
not new to me. I began looking into options Eastern medicine might
offer. This led me to Dr. Ted Cibik and his staff at Inner Strength.
Little did I know how fortunate I was to find my way to Leechburg,
the past six months, I have seen Dr. Cibik for medical qigong
treatments. I have attended his A-course, and am ready now to attend
the B-course next month. The information shared in the introductory
two day course had such depth and insight into human experience that
I am still overwhelmed to this day by the knowledge shared that
weekend. I walked away with a full curriculum of daily qigong
practice that included an understanding of each movement and how it
affects my internal organs and health state.
have no symptoms of MS today. I feel incredibly healthy, and my
daily qigong practices are progressing nicely. Friends and family
have noticed a difference in my appearance and demeanor, stating I
look healthier than I have in years. Ted has helped me make
intelligent choices about my diet and vitamin intake. He has spent
countless hours researching anything he can find on MS, presenting
me with his findings and allowing me to decide on its value.
are no secrets. Just those that know, and those that don't. Ted
removes the mystique from this old Eastern healing practice called
medical qigong, and makes it both real and accessible. He has a
knowledge base that supercedes any other qigong practitioner or
acupuncturist I have ever met. He has trained with the best, and it
shows. Ted is the real deal. See him for treatments! Attend his
courses! If you haven't, you're missing out...

I had suffered from
chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) for over 3 - 4 years. It
was so bad that after finishing high school, I had to put
college off for several years because I simply did not have the
energy for it. I went to numerous traditional western
medicine doctors (some of whom did not even believe that I
was ill), chiropractors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and
hypnotherapists. None of them were able to help me regain my
energy. Finally, I decided to try the Eastern approach to my
illness, which is when I came to see Ted. Following an
evaluation, he began using medical qigong on me 1 - 2 times a week
as well as giving me Chinese herbs and advice on diet, nutrition,
and lifestyle. After the first several sessions, I could
definitely feel the qigong working and I gradually began to
regain the energy that I had not felt for years. Ted
has taught me a lot and I owe a lot to him for helping me to
regain my health. Thanks Ted!

dramatically. He fixed my prolapsed uterus, cooled decades of anger
in my energy system, and reconnected me internally
