(Clearwisdom.net) I am 31 years old and started practicing Falun Dafa on January 23, 2005.
In December 2004, I was diagnosed with a type of rheumatoid arthritis that caused my hands and feet to be swollen and deformed, while my legs became so stiff that I was not able to bend them anymore. When I had to use the restroom, I was not able to squat and I was in great pain. My situation was very serious. At that time, my baby was only three months old but I was not strong enough to hold him. I didn't know where to turn, being stricken with this illness at such a young age and I was so worried that I was close to tears every day.
After I left the hospital, I thought about practicing Falun Gong but my husband objected and insisted on looking for medical help. I tried Chinese herbal treatments for over a month but there was no sign of improvement. I knew that only Falun Gong could save me, since my mother is a Falun Gong practitioner and she had told me many miraculous and amazing stories of people recovering from illness practicing Falun Gong. I had read about many examples in Falun Gong flyers, where patients suffering from cancer and leukemia had recovered.
At first, I just wanted to give it try and I still had lots of doubt in my mind. I kept 10 prescriptions for Chinese herbs. However, my mother told me to believe in Dafa, so I stopped taking all medicines on the day I started the practice. A miracle happened! After only three days of practice, the swelling in my hands and feet disappeared and I fully recovered. My own experience taught me that Falun Dafa has great power and is truly supernatural. I deeply thank Master Li for giving me back a healthy body. Dafa is so wonderful! I will firmly practice it until the end.
