In 1966, when I was participating in the construction of the Chengkun Railway Station, I was suddenly afflicted with an acute case of gastritis. After that, it turned into a chronic stomach illness. In 1973, after my company transferred me back to Beijing, even though I have received many treatments from different aspects, my illness didn't get better. During that period of time, I went through a lot of medical exams. However, my illness became even worse. My condition went from gastritis to atrophying gastritis and then developed to a gastro duodenal ulcer. In addition, at the left side of my stomach, there was a hard lump that was bigger than a banana, causing me pain from time to time. It was said that there was no special treatment for atrophying gastritis. As a result, I was getting more and more worried.

For many years, I couldn't buy meals from our company's cafeteria. Every day at lunch, I had to bring some form of gruel or flour-based food. My stomach was so sensitive that I couldn't have any cold or hard food. I could not get hungry or I would get severe stomach pains. As a result, my face appeared yellowish and I became very skinny and weak. I had to go to hospitals on a frequent basis. I took a lot of both Chinese and western medicines. Still, I did not see much difference.

In 1993, I retired. I made up my mind to seriously treat my illness. During one year, I had over 170 batches of Chinese herb medicines. I didn't stop even during the hottest part of the summer. My wife prepared medicine for me in the heat. Everyday I held a jar containing the bitter medicine and forced myself to drink it, but still it didn't resolve the illness at the root.

At the beginning of 1996, when I had basically given up hope, through a friend's introduction, I was fortunate enough to learn Falun Dafa. After I seriously read Master Li's Zhuan Falun, I gradually came to understand what genuine cultivation meant. After one week of doing the exercises, one day, I found that the hard lump in my stomach became soft. A few days later, I couldn't even feel that hard lump, which was bigger than a banana. After I started practicing, I didn't need to take any more medicine. All kinds of symptoms in my stomach disappeared. What great encouragement this has brought to my family and me! Since then, I dare to eat rice, pancakes, fruit, and even ice cream. My face, which had been yellowish, became rosy. I began to put on weight, and I felt more and more energetic. My friends and neighbors frequently commented on the changes in me that they could see.

Not long after I started practicing Falun Gong, my stomach disease of 30 years was eliminated. I have to admit that it is truly a miracle! What most impressed me was Master Li's emphasis on cultivation and improvement of one's xinxing (mind nature, moral character). Only by continually improving our moral standard and spiritual realm, attaching less importance on personal fame and self-interest, getting rid of all kinds of bad thoughts, unnecessary worries, keeping a peaceful and serene state of mind, can a person truly achieve mental and physical health.
