(Clearwisdom.net) This is a story about a physician from Macheng City, Hubei Province, China. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1994 to try her luck, as western medical treatment could not improve the severe problem with her neck vertebra. The pain eventually spread to her shoulder and back, keeping her up at night. She was in agony, unable to lift or feel her arm. In less than 6 months after starting to practice Falun Gong, the pain disappeared from her shoulders and arms, allowing her to use them again. The numbness completely dissapeared. Her body was free of illness. She became eager to share with others the extraordinary benefits of practicing Falun Gong.

Then on July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), led by Jiang Zemin, began to suppress Falun Gong. The physician became one of their targets. She faced repeated harassment from government officials and many different Chinese government agencies attempting to make her renounce Falun Gong. Eventually she gave in and stopped practicing Falun Gong.

Soon after, she began to have health problems again. In June 2001, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She then had her ovaries and tumors surgically removed. Unfortuantely, in less than a year after the surgery, the cancer had spread to four of her internal organs. Moreover, tumors in her intestines caused severe and agonizing constipation. She felt so much pressure from her intestines that she was unable to eat or drink. The hospital had a medical professor at the provicinal level perform an open intestinal probe. The professor looked at her medical history and shook his head. "The surgery would be meaningless. There are cancerous tumors of various sizes all over." He declared that there was nothing he could do and told her family to prepare for the worst. She was estimated to have two months left at most. But her family pleaded with the doctor to do something so that she could at least have bowel movements. Finally, the professor agreed to remove the tumors from her intestines and to make an artificial anus in her lower abdomen, but he could do nothing about the rest of the tumors inside her.

Thus the hospital continued the medical treatments, knowing that eventually she would die. The doctor prescribed chemotheraphy, hoping for a miracle. However, she had such an adverse reaction to the chemotheraphy-- dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite-- that left her that it was discontinued. She was a woman with a hot temper. On the third day of the chemothraphy, she insisted on pulling the needle out and throwing away all her prescriptions. Her family gave in and agreed to let her check out of the hospital, yielding to fate.

However, when she returned home, fellow practitioners came to visit her. They told her, "Falun Gong has manifested its miracles in you. Under no circumstance should you give it up. You should have more respect for it. It is our sincere advice that you prove that Falun Gong is good for the sake of your life and for your family. You must block all interference [from the CCP]. Think of nothing else. We will be glad to come, do the exercises,, and study the Falun Gong books with you. Become diligent in your cultivation practice again."

Her family knew that the hospital could do nothing to save her life and that Falun Gong was their only hope. They were very supportive and appreciated that the practitioners had come to help her start practicing Falun Gong again.

With the help of those selfless practitioners, and because of the infinite compassion of Teacher, the dying physician quickly regained her health. Falun Gong manifested another miracle for this physician. Looking back to the past, it has now been nearly 10 years since the hospital predicted that she had only two months to live. She became perfectly healthy. She was able to resume a normal life, not needing medical treatment, a special diet, or extra care.

One day an ultrasound scan technician did not believe her story. He challenged her to have a free abdominal ultrasound scan. The scan revealed that there were no tumors in her abdomen. The incident caused a local sensation in the hospital. Her work colleagues came to believe in Falun Gong's miraculous power. Her family was especially thankful that Falun Gong had saved her life.

However, the local public security bureau and the 610 Office had a strong aversion to people practicing Falun Gong. On the night of July 22, 2007, more than a dozen police officers knocked on her door. After her family opened the door, the police arrested her for practicing Falun Gong and took her to a police station. Her family was outraged. They told the police: "As you know, Falun Gong's founder has saved her life. If you dare to bother her again for practicing Falun Gong, you will be fully responsible should her heath fail again! We will make each and every one of you pay for it." The police, stunned by the righteous remarks, looked at each other speechless. They ended up releasing the physician.

This is the true story of a physician in Macheng City, Hubei Province, China. Hers is only but one of the many miraculous stories from the hospitals of Macheng City. We hope that those from Macheng City will read this story and learn about the wonder and beauty of Falun Gong. It is time to ponder on why the morality of Chinese society has been declining. In this chaotic world with myriads of natural and manmade disasters, there came a cultivation practice called Falun Gong that requires its practitioners to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Have you ever wondered why Falun Gong has not disappeared even after the 12 years the Chinese Communist regime has tried to suppress it? Instead of being suppressed, Falun Gong has grown and now has followers in more than 100 countries worldwide, receiving numerous proclamations from governments around the world. There are even new followers inside China that defy the rule of the Chinese Communist regime.

Hopefully you will be inspired to learn about Falun Gong and its persecution from a positive perspective. That is the sincere and greatest wish of each and every Falun Gong practitioner.
