Two Stories of Older Practitioners Recovering Their Health
1. A New Elderly Practitioner's Story
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Shandong Province
I started practicing Falun Dafa in mid-October 2007. Here I will talk about my mother's experience.
My mother is 74 years old. She was plagued by many diseases including rheumatism. One day in June, I was reading Zhuan Falun to her. She said, "It's Falun Gong, do not study it again. Isn't the Communist Party arresting them?" I replied, "Let me read to you first, then you judge whether it's good or bad after listening." I continued reading aloud to her. In the beginning she kept saying, "Lower your voice, lower your voice!" I finished the first lecture and asked her whether she could understand it, and she said she could. I then asked, "Why didn't you tell me to lower my voice anymore?" She said, "It is a good thing, no need to be afraid!"
A few days later, I taught my mother to do the exercises and had her listen to the Falun Dafa audio lectures. Not long ago, my mother said to me, "Look! Before, when I washed my face, I could not touch my face with my palm. Now, I can straighten my hand. In the past when I went to the market, I had to rest four times on the way before I could get home. Now I do not need to rest and I can walk all the way home. It used to be that I couldn't fall asleep at night, but now as soon as I lie down I can fall asleep. Even though I took medicine daily, my legs still had cramps. Now, it's been more than two months since I last took medicine but I haven't had any cramps. My old toothache symptoms are also gone. This Dafa is really miraculous!"
My mother's health is getting better day by day. I am really grateful to Dafa and Teacher's benevolent salvation. We will for sure do the three things well according to Teacher's request. Being late in attaining Dafa, my understanding is still shallow. Fellow practitioners, please point out my mistakes.
2. All My Diseases Were Cured After Practicing Falun Dafa for Half a Year
By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Shanxi Province
I am a country woman. My youngest daughter started to practice Falun Gong first. She came back home to tell me, "Cultivation can remove all not-so-good thoughts. If you really practice Dafa, you won't feel that others are not treating you well."
Afterwards, my daughter presented the treasured book Zhuan Falun to me and I started to practice Falun Dafa. Before long, the Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Dafa. Because my Fa study was shallow, I stopped Fa-study and doing the exercises. Then, because my xinxing was not up to par, I had a mild stroke. I went home with an intravenous drip, but the more injections I had, the worse my symptoms became. Part of my body could not move. My daughter said, "If you can settle your heart down, wholeheartedly study the Fa and do the exercises, you definitely will become well." I said, "I won't take medicine again. I will do the exercises." I studied the Fa and practiced the exercises daily. My health got better day by day. Within six months, I could do anything competently.
The villagers all saw my change. I told them I became well by practicing Falun Gong. I told them that everything that's been said on the television is false. I told them about the Communist Party's evil nature and urged them to quickly withdraw from the party and its affiliated organizations to save their lives. I offer my sincere thanks to Teacher for his merciful salvation.
