(Clearwisdom.net) I am a middle school teacher who is 62 years old. I had many illnesses before I began practicing Falun Dafa. For almost 26 years I had suffered from illnesses such as congenital heart disease, pulmonary tuberculosis, cervical vertebra ossein proliferation, Meniere's syndrome and an attachment to sleep. I had worn three pairs of special glasses for older people before I was just over 40 years old. Towards the end everything was blurry when I read. I also had rheumatoid arthritis and other persistent illnesses.

I began Falun Dafa practice in January 1996. I did not need the special glasses for older people after I read Zhuan Falun three times. I could even see very small characters. All of my persistent illnesses disappeared after practicing, and my whole body felt light. From my childhood to the time before I started to practice, my lips were always white, having an inadequate blood supply due to my heart disease. I had always carried heart pills with me since the 1970's. After practicing, my lips looked as if they always had lipstick on them.

In March 2001, I was illegally arrested and held in Dongcheng District Detention Center in Beijing, for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. I went on a nine-day hunger strike in August 2004, when I was cuffed and shackled and taken for a medical examination. The doctor looked at the ultrasonic screen for a long time, and also asked all the doctors at work to come and look at it. In the end, the doctor in charge said, "Practicing Falun Gong has filled up the gap in her atrium (a chamber in the heart)."

During the five years I spent in the forced labor camp, I was taken to the provincial hospital twice to have medical examinations. The first time was in August 2001, and the second time was in August 2004. The doctor who did the medical examination was the doctor in charge. He asked all the other doctors to come to his lecture. He said, "At noon these ten patients had damage to the atriums in their hearts. This afternoon there is no atrium damage. Practicing Falun Gong has truly healed their hearts."
