(Clearwisdom.net) I am 69 years old in 2004. I am a traditional Chinese medical doctor working as a chief physician at a hospital in China. I started to practice Falun Gong in 1996. Since Jiang Zemin started to openly persecute Falun Gong practitioners on July 20, 1999, I have been trying to explain to my fellow Chinese people the truth about Falun Gong. The staff from the local Public Security Bureau, local police stations and the neighborhood administration office in my community, as well as my patients, have repeatedly asked me the same question: "You are a trained medical professional. You are supposed to believe in science. Why do you believe in such superstition?" As I have explained to them before, I can testify based on my personal experience of studying Falun Gong books and practicing the exercises that Falun Dafa is supernormal and not a superstition.

I was born in a prestigious family, where nearly all of my family members are traditional Chinese medical doctors. My father was a chief physician and my elder brother and younger sister are both deputy chief physicians. Despite my prestigious background, I had been tormented with many terminal illnesses for decades. My father and my siblings were capable of providing me with the first-class medical care, but they were unable to treat my illnesses.

First of all, I suffered from menorrhagia (excessively heavy or prolonged uterine bleeding), which caused chronic anaemia (deficiency of red blood cells) for many years. Despite the blood transfusion, the massive bleeding and severe anaemia had even caused hypovolemic shock or oligemic shock (characterized by the loss of fluid from the circulating blood volume, so that adequate circulation cannot be maintained to all parts of the body.) In women, the total hemoglobin (hemoglobin gives red blood cells their color and carries oxygen) concentration is typically 12 to 16 grams per deciliter (dl), but my typical hemoglobin concentration was 5 - 6 g/dl. It had even dropped to 2.7 g/dl at one point. Due to my severe chronic anaemia, my heart continued to enlarge and I constantly suffered from shortness of breath, palpitation, angina (chest pain because the heart is weak) and swelling in the legs (oedema). I had to avoid touching the left side of my chest because of the pain. I felt weak and frail all the time, and I could not have babies.

Secondly, I was diagnosed with vulvar dystrophy. My gynecologist, the Chairman of the OB/GYN department in a hospital, recommended that I have vulvectomy, but I decided not to have the operation. Instead, I was given Fluocinolone Acetate (A topical glucocorticoid used in the treatment of eczemas) ointment to stop the itch. Over the years, it spread to my vagina, anus, groin and the lower abdomen. The itch was unbearable. Eventually, the vulvar dystrophy developed into cancer, which then spread to other areas in my body. In the end, I could even feel a hard issue in my stomach, but I didn't have the courage to go under the knife. In the end, my weight dropped from 152 to 100 lbs.

Vulvar Dystrophy (Vulval Leukoplakia): refers to a spectrum of vulvar eruptions consisting of white atrophic papules, including lichen sclerosus et atrophicus, squamous cell hyperplasia (hypertrophic dystrophy), or a combination of these (mixed dystrophy). Lichen sclerosus is the most common of the vulval dystrophies, and may represent an autoimmune disorder. It primarily affects the vulva but in 20% of cases, affects other sites such as the thighs or perineum. Patients are usually aged 45 - 60 years. Symptoms include vulvar pruritus, superficial dyspareunia, or lesions that may be white, red, pigmented, raised, or ulcerated. Fissures, cracks, and bruising of the skin in this region are not uncommon. It is remarkably that the malignant changes in this region will probably grow into cancerous disease in 5-10% of the patients with vulvar dystrophy. And 50% of the patients with vulvar cancer have a history of being affected by chronic vulvar dystrophy. It is, therefore, also called pre-cancer changes clinically. Treatment with a potent topical corticosteroid may be useful. In females, vulvectomy is not advised, as recurrences following surgery are common.

Thirdly, I suffered from tuberculosis in my early years. After I recovered from tuberculosis, the disease had left me with frail lungs. Each and every winter, I would be inflicted with colds, coughing, and shortness of breath. I took both traditional Chinese herbal medicine and western medicine for many years, and I was under the medical care of famous doctors, but I was still haunted with illnesses. How could I possibly have any pleasure when I had to take medication following each meal each day? I tried to practice many Chinese qigong (a form of traditional Chinese exercise which cultivates qi or "vital energy"), but none of them helped me combat my illness or improve my health.

In 1996, I had the great fortune to learn Falun Gong. Since then, I concentrated on my cultivation practice wholeheartedly. All of the aforementioned illnesses that had tormented me for decades went away without a trace. Before I started to believe in Falun Gong, I I expected that medical science would provide a solution to my terminal illnesses. However, I was repeatedly left disappointed. Over the decades, my illnesses had never improved; they merely deteriorated. I believe in Falun Gong because it actually got rid of all of my terminal illnesses. My skin texture has also improved and I now have a rosy complexion. I have become very fit and can walk for a long distance without feeling tired. My voice has become loud and clear instead of whispering and weak. Although I am approaching 70, I have been repeatedly told that I look like I am in my 50's. Each time the staff members from the local Public Security Bureau, police stations and the neighborhood administration office in my community came to see me and tried to make me renounce Falun Gong, I would share with them my personal story of becoming perfectly healthy because of Falun Gong. At the end of the story, I would ask them, "I have been practicing Falun Gong for eight years. In the past eight years, I have been perfectly healthy and did not need to take any medicine or get a shot. Even for a young man such as yourself, can you honestly say that you have never been sick and did not have to take medicine or take any shot at the hospital in the past year?" Then they became speechless.

I think the complete transformation of my health is testimony that Falun Dafa is the most extraordinary science and not a superstition. We all know that everyone has to go through the inevitable cycle of birth, aging, sickness and death. When I was severely ill and halfway to death, neither Chinese traditional medicine nor western medicine was able to save me. It is Falun Gong that cured my terminal illnesses and prevented me from having any illnesses. Isn't it a most miraculous phenomenon? Isn't Falun Dafa extraordinary?
