[Selected Submission] Severe Muscle Weakness Healed, and Other Stories of the Tremendous Health Benefits of Dafa
(Minghui.org) I am over 70 years old and have practiced Falun Dafa for 15 years. With Teacher's protection and guidance I feel privileged and proud to be a practitioner. Dafa has been practiced worldwide for 20 years and on this special occasion, I would like to report to Teacher and fellow practitioners about the wonders of practicing Dafa.
Many Illnesses Disappear after Practicing Falun Dafa
One night in 1997, my husband gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun and said, “Take a look at this book.” When I read the book, I was amazed when I came upon the passage that said,
“Let me tell everyone that since we are of a great cultivation way in the Buddha School, we of course cultivate Buddhahood. In the Tao School, one of course cultivates the Tao to attain the Tao.” (Zhuan Falun)
Suddenly, I recalled several scenes when I was a child—my mother and many of her generation were worshippers of Buddha. I was also a worshipper, but how could I become a Buddha? I continued to focus on reading the book until I finished it. Afterwards, I asked my husband, “Can you find a copy of this book for me? I would also like to cultivate.” From that day onward, we spend our evenings studying the book and doing the exercises.
Before I practiced Falun Dafa, I had many illnesses that included autonomic nerve disorders, insomnia, migraines, digestive disorder, pharyngitis, bronchitis, caudal vertebrae Aponeurosis inflammation, inflammation of the vulva, rhinitis and hypertension. Dealing with my illnesses and the pressure from work caused my face to be full of wrinkles even though I was only in my fifties. I was underweight and weak. After I began practicing Falun Dafa, Teacher purified my body. I could feel the Falun turning in different parts of my body, including my nose. When I did the first four sets of exercises, for about five or six days I could feel a stream of cold air passing through my lower abdomen. It was really miraculous. I realized that Teacher was healing my body and felt grateful. I sincerely thank Teacher. In less than a month, all my illnesses were gone. I also have less wrinkles on my face, I gained weight and am full of energy. People say that I look much younger.
My Family and Relatives Witness the Power of Dafa
My daughter suffered from myasthenia gravis after she graduated from college and started her new job. One of the symptoms she had was the loss of muscle control of her eyelids. One well-known hospital said that she needed surgery, while another believed that she had hyperthyroidism. My daughter felt hopeless. At that time, my husband and I had just began practicing Falun Dafa and thought it was an opportunity for us to tell her about Dafa. So we told her, “Why don't you practice Falun Dafa with us. If you are serious about the practice, Teacher might help you.” She had witnessed our positive changes both physically and mentally and joined us that very evening to do the exercises. Five days later, she noticed an improvement in the condition of her eyelid. In less than two weeks, her eyelids were back to normal. She didn't have to take any medicine or have surgery. If I hadn't personally witnessed it, it would've been difficult to believe.
My daughter has not only regained her health, but has also improved her character. She used to worry about petty things and liked to argue with people. Now she has good relations with her colleagues and everyone at home. She said, “As a practitioner, you must listen to what Teacher says. Otherwise, how can you be considered a practitioner.”
My husband's brother is over 60 years old. In 2008, his eyesight deteriorated and all the hospitals he visited said that he had retinopathy. One doctor said, “It is not cataract or glaucoma, but a typical case of retinopathy.” He went through a series of treatments, but to no avail. His eyesight rating was 0.1 in one eye and 0.6 in the other. He became very irritable and his home environment became tense.
After we learned about his situation, we invited him and his wife to come see us in Beijing. When they came in November, my husband said to him, “Don't worry. Go to the hospitals here to get a more thorough check up. If they have no viable solution, we can still turn to Dafa.” We told him of examples of many people whose illnesses have been healed from practicing Falun Dafa and the only thing needed was sincerity and faith. When we were paying respects to Teacher's photo in the evening, his wife said to Teacher sincerely, “Master! Please give us a chance. We have faith in Dafa too. Let his illness be a curable one such as a cataract.” They joined us that evening to do the exercises. My brother-in-law was able to sit in full lotus position for more than 30 minutes. He told us after doing the sitting meditation that he felt a warm, comfortable current around his waist area. His wife said, “I can feel the Falun turning inside my abdomen.” We were very happy and said, “Teacher is guiding us now.”
The next day, we accompanied him to the hospital for a check up. The doctor said, “You have a serious case of cataract. Why did you wait so long for a checkup?” He was taken by surprise and asked, “What is the problem with my eyes?” The doctor replied again, “Cataract.” He couldn't believe what he heard. He was so happy! The retinopathy had changed to a cataract. His wife excitedly said, “Teacher is looking after us now. We must cultivate diligently. Thank you, Teacher.”
They operated on the eye with the 0.1 eyesight rating first. The next day when he returned for a checkup, they found that that his eyesight was now 1.0. The nurse said, “In most cases, people only have 0.8 after surgery. It is very rare for it to immediately return to 1.0.” After returning home they continued to study the Fa and do the exercises. Later, his lumbar disc herniation was healed without taking any medicine.
I sincerely hope that all those who still believe the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) lies will read the stories of practitioners' healing experiences. Take a look at how blessed practitioners are and withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Sincerely reciting, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” will turn calamities into blessings. Don't miss this extremely rare opportunity.
On this special day (May 13), I respectfully wish Teacher a happy birthday!
