Yan Xin Qigong Scientific Research
Laser Raman Observation on Tap Water, Saline, Glucose, and Medemycine Solutions
under the Influence of External Qi*


The purpose of these experiments was to investigate whether the external qi of qigong could cause measurable changes in the properties of tap water and some aqueous solutions.
Laser Raman spectroscopy is a well-known technique in the study of molecular structure. Each sample has a characteristic spectrum at a given state. A change in the spectrum is an indication of a change in the molecular structure.
The laser Raman spectra of control tap water sample without external qi treatment was measured repeatedly (about twenty times). The result showed that there was a stretching vibrational peak for OH at 3,410 cm-1, and a deformed and weak vibrational peak for HOH at 1,635 cm-1 at about 12oC. These data compared well to 3,440 cm-1 for OH and 1,645 cm-1 for HOH reported in the literature.

However, the laser Raman spectra of the tap water affected by the external qi showed a huge unknown peak that spanned from 1,000 to 3,000 cm-1. A typical spectrum is shown in Figure 1. The experiments were repeatedly performed ten times, including four times over ultra long distance (1,900 km) and given the same results. 

The experiments were extended to other aqueous solutions such as saline and glucose solutions, which are critical to the physiological functions of a human body. All the results showed some structural changes of the test solutions treated by external qi, as indicated by their Raman spectra.
