(Clearwisdom.net) I’m 35 years old this year, and I started practicing Falun Dafa in 2005. As soon as I began practicing, I experienced tremendous changes in my body. I’m writing down my experiences to validate the wonderfulness of Falun Dafa and to thank Master for giving me a second chance at life and compassionately offering me salvation.

I began suffering from allergic rhinitis and asthma in 1986, when I was very young. As soon as the weather changed, I kept sneezing and had difficulty breathing. My mom took me to the county hospital for treatment. However, the doctors said that these diseases could only be treated and not cured, and then gave us six bags of traditional Chinese medicine. I tried the medicine, but it was not effective at all. Afterwards, my mom took me to many well-known hospitals in our city and Shanghai, as well as some hospitals that specialized in curing illnesses of the ear, nose, and throat. However, their treatments were not effective either.

From the time I began primary school, as soon as the seasons changed or the temperature changed sharply, I always sneezed a dozen times after I got up and was dizzy and sleepy for the rest of the morning. I had great difficulty breathing through my nose after I went to bed, so I had to breathe through my mouth. Because of the asthma, all night my room was filled with the sound of my wheezing and struggling to breathe, and I had difficulty falling asleep. I still remember how miserable I was. I lived in such pain and discomfort for nearly 20 years.

In early 2005, I met a warmhearted woman in my community. She introduced Falun Dafa to me and told me that this cultivation practice was not only good for physical and mental health, but could also upgrade one’s xinxing. She suggested that I try it. I took her advice and borrowed a copy of the precious book, Zhuan Falun.

I practiced the exercises every day. As soon as I got up on the morning of the fifth day, I felt very warm deep inside my body. I noticed that my quilt and sheets were all wet, because I had sweat so much. My face was covered with mucus. I thought I had a high fever and took my temperature, but it was normal. I got out of bed to get dressed. To my surprise, my body felt very light and I could breathe easily.

This greatly encouraged me. I understood afterwards that Master had purified my body that day. I became more diligent in practicing cultivation. Day by day, I felt better and better.

Soon the rhinitis and asthma that I had suffered from for 20 years completely disappeared. I was fully recovered and became free of illnesses. Master and Dafa gave me a second chance at life. I will be more diligent in the future to live up to the salvation that Master has compassionately offered me.
