My Stepfather's Story after Encountering Dafa
(Clearwisdom.net) My 78-year-old stepfather is a retired worker. In April 2006, he began to suffer from edema all over his body. He had to go to a hospital for treatment, where he was diagnosed with a low-protein syndrome. His treatment consisted of monthly transfusions of 2 to 3 bottles of protein drugs. The wholesale price of each bottle of protein drug was 260 yuan, while his monthly retirement income was only about 600 yuan.
Spending so much on his transfusions, my family became poor and were very worried. At the time I said to him, "The drugs can only keep your condition from deteriorating. Only Falun Dafa can save you."
He had already quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and was well aware of the truth about Falun Gong. He even constantly recited in his mind, "Falun Dafa is good." He agreed with my suggestion and started to practice Falun Gong. After that he studied the Fa seriously and persisted in doing the Falun Gong exercises. He said, "I now give myself to Dafa."
My stepfather put aside all the medicine he used to take. He suffered from chronic constipation for many years and was unable to have a bowel movement without taking medicine. In the first month of practicing Falun Gong he did not regard the problem as a disease and paid it no mind. As a result, the chronic constipation that had tormented him for 30 years was gone. However, he fell ill with this low-protein syndrome three times in the first three months after he started to practice Falun Gong. According to doctors, a patient with low-protein syndrome should never stop taking medicine. When the syndrome reoccurred the first time, he was in a serious condition and his foot arches became badly swollen. Greatly worried, my mother intended to send him to a hospital. He said: "I am a Falun Gong practitioner. I will be OK because my Teacher is taking care of me." With his firm belief in Teacher and Dafa, he went through the test of life and death. His condition became better during the last two recurrences of the syndrome.
My stepfather has practiced Falun Gong for about 9 months now and the edema caused by the low-protein syndrome has never reoccurred. Now he is in good physical condition and saves the large sum of money he used to spend on medicine. My mother said joyously, "It is Dafa that has given him a new life."
Through his own experience, my stepfather witnessed the miracle of Dafa. I genuinely hope that all people deceived by the CCP lies come to learn about Falun Gong and read the miraculous book, Zhuan Falun. It will benefit them greatly.
