(Clearwisdom.net) I was a disabled person with many different diseases, including epilepsy, mental illness, sleep walking, and being dull-witted. I also suffered from a slipped disc, bone spurs, hyperlipidemia, an arm injury, and shoulder inflammation. It wasn't cured after treatment in Shanxi Province's major hospitals. Yet, less than two years after I learned Falun Dafa, all these diseases were cured.

On a day in July 1999, I was very sick and remained unconscious; foam came out from my mouth, which later turned into spitting blood. My sister arrived to take care of me. She is a Dafa practitioner and read Zhuan Falun to me.

That night I awoke. Usually, when I was sick like this, I would be dazed for two to three days and could not recognize anyone. But that day as I awoke, I wasn't dazed at all.

My sister asked me to learn Dafa and I agreed. That night I started to read Zhuan Falun. I was 50 years old, but I had only an elementary education and, because of epilepsy, I forgot many words. As I read Zhuan Falun, I could not recognize many words. However, under Master's direction I eventually understood the general meaning of Master's Fa. The more I read the more I wanted to read.

Before this, I couldn't read any books; I couldn't even watch TV. Whenever I watched TV, I got a headache. However, when I hold Zhuan Falun, the pages are light green. My eyes feel comfortable, my head feels fine, and my body and mind all feel very comfortable. Just like this, without eating or sleeping, I read straight through the second day. After reading Zhuan Falun one time, the principle Master taught regarding "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance" touched my heart thoroughly and I decided to practice Falun Dafa.

At that time the Chinese Communist Party had started to persecute Dafa. I stayed home, studied on my own, and practiced on my own. At the beginning it was very difficult to practice the exercises. Because of a previous injury to my arm, I couldn't lift my hand. Lumbago prevented me from sitting steadily. While sitting in meditation in single lotus position, I would fall over. My husband helped me sit up many times. When doing the exercises I often felt Master was watching right beside me. That gave me more confidence. A half year later, I could do the single lotus position. A year later, all my sicknesses were gone except for the epilepsy, which occurred much less frequently than before.

In 2006, police from the 610 Office heard that I practiced the exercises at home. They illegally arrested me, sent me to a brainwashing class, forced me to curse Master and to write a "transformation statement." I told them how I benefited from learning Dafa, and the changes in my body. I told them Master gave me a second chance.

The police saw that I refused to "transform" and thus they tortured me, which caused me to be sick many times. But when I was sick I still called for Master. This angered the police and they detained me in a detention center for more than a month. Later they extorted 1,000 yuan from me and released me. I was later placed in a brainwashing class, but they were afraid that I might have an attack of epilepsy, so they forced my work place and relatives to send someone over to take care of me.

On April 7, 2001, a group of 610 police officers came to ransack my house, steal Master's new lectures, and force me into a police car to be taken to the public security bureau. The police tried to forced me to say where I got the lectures. I refused to tell and that night police locked me up in a detention center.

In the detention center, I sent forth righteous thoughts nonstop, did the exercises, and recited the new lecture. The police put handcuffs and a foot shackle on me. For more than twenty days they did not give me anything to eat at lunch. I was only given a half bowl of soup. I persisted in studying Fa and doing the exercises, even with handcuffs and shackles. I continued to do the meditation, and never missed sending any righteous thought at the appropriate time. From April 7, 2001 to March 3, 2002, I was illegally imprisoned in the detention center--almost a year. Police extorted 1,500 yuan from my family and then released me.

Whoever knows me realizes that I was a person who could not take care myself. But because I practiced Falun Gong, I was full of energy; the epilepsy I suffered for many years was almost gone, and I got a healthy body. In the city where I live, all the authorities, including the 610 Office and detention center, know about me. They saw with their own eyes that I was detained many times and they investigated my physical condition before I practiced Falun Dafa. Actually, deep down they feel Dafa is magical.

Because of my limited education, some parts of this article might not be according to Dafa. Fellow practitioners, please point it out with compassion.
