38. Retired Worker Recovers From Kidney Failure

¡¡¡¡By A Falun Dafa Practitioner In Wuhan City, Hubei Province

¡¡¡¡I am 50 years old and a retired worker. My family lives on Hanzhengjie Street in Hankou City, Wuhan, Hubei Province. In November 2002, I was hospitalized for chronic kidney failure and uremia. One month of hospitalization cost me more than 10,000 yuan [the average monthly income for an urban worker in China is 500 yuan]. Because the cost went far beyond my ability to pay, even though my illness did not show any obvious improvement, I had to leave the hospital. After I went back home, I tried to borrow money from here and there to treat my illness. I visited the most famous kidney specialists, and I had to take an injection every other day. Each injection cost me almost 100 yuan. If I skipped any injections, I would fall completely unconscious and lie in bed practically comatose. My vision was hazy, and it felt like my eyes were covered with something. It cost me over 1,500 yuan per month for the injections and for the other traditional Chinese herbal medicine I had to take. In the long run, I couldn't afford to treat my illness, which was considered incurable by medical means. I clearly understood that I did not have many days left to live. On March 12, 2003, when I was in pain and despair, a neighbor told me, ¡±Your illness may be healed if you practice Falun Gong.¡± When she saw me still not completely convinced, she called and invited an older lady in her sixties to my home. This lady told me her personal experience of having her stomach cancer healed by practicing Falun Gong.

¡¡¡¡Since I started to practice Falun Gong, I have not needed to take any medicine or injections for over a year. I have persistently studied the teachings of Falun Dafa and practiced the exercises every day without interruptions. I have totally regained the health of a normal person. Just by reading the book Zhuan Falun, which contains the main teachings of Falun Dafa, and practicing the five simple sets of exercises, my uremia, which was declared incurable by modern medicine, disappeared.

¡¡¡¡If I did not have the experience myself, it would be difficult for me to believe Falun Gong's wonderful healing effect. I would probably still be deceived by the lies spread by the TV and newspapers.

¡¡¡¡Through reading the book and learning Falun Dafa, I came to realize that Falun Gong is not just for treating illnesses. Falun Gong teaches people to cultivate¡¡their mind and heart according to the principles of ¡±Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance¡± and to be good. I will use my life, which has been extended by Falun Dafa, to tell all people, ¡°Falun Dafa is Good!¡±
