(Minghui.org) I had ulcerations on the instep of my right foot for ten years. It was painful and itchy, as fluid continually oozed out of three of my toes. I tried many different treatments, including Chinese and western medicine, herbs and folk prescriptions, but to no avail, and was still tormented by the pain. Even a head physician from the local hospital, who is a good friend of our family, tried many different ways to cure my foot, but nothing worked.

My father sent me a letter one day, informing me about a folk doctor who specializes in curing difficult diseases. This person lives in my hometown in the countryside, and my father suggested that I go to see him. I set off right away. When this person saw my foot, he said that it was a very strange type of foot rot, but he knew how to cure the disease. He then told my father to buy a very expensive type of medicine. My father tried many different places before he was finally able to obtain it.

The folk doctor put the medicine into a bowl and put the bowl over a fire. He then took out a round rack on a stand and placed it over the bowl. I was told to rest my bad foot on the rack so that the smoke from the evaporating medicine would surround my foot. A large piece of red paper was also placed on the floor underneath the rack. The heat and smoke made me sweat a lot. My foot was so hot that it was red and swollen. I almost lost consciousness due to the pain. My father yelled, “Stop it! My daughter can’t take it anymore.” The folk doctor replied, “Don't worry, come and take a look. The worms inside your daughter's foot are all coming out. There are thousands of them.” Those around me all came closer to look at the tiny white worms covering the paper.

However, after going through this ordeal my foot hurt so badly, and I had a high fever and constipation for the whole day. Although a lot of worms did come out of my foot, it was still not cured, and I was in even more pain than before.

Ten years later, someone from my hometown heard about my illness and introduced Falun Gong to me. He hoped that I could go to watch Master Li Hongzhi's lecture videos at the auditorium of a local company. I agreed to go, but at the time I had to have my daily IV at the hospital because of my severely swollen foot. During the IV treatment, I was restless and told the nurse to take out the needle several times, but my request was refused. In the end, I told her that I needed to go and watch the lecture video of the Master of Falun Gong. She agreed to stop the transfusion, but warned me that she would not be held responsible for any consequences. I gladly agreed and asked her to call a taxi motorcycle for me.

When we arrived at the auditorium, the motorcycle driver helped me to the door. I was already over an hour late, and it was full of people. I moved with difficulty to sit under a window and watched Master on the screen without moving my eyes away from Him. I had never before heard what Master was saying, and a lot of my life’s questions were answered. During the lecture, a wonderful feeling rippled through my body. Time passed quickly, and it was soon lunchtime. Most of us had our lunch in the company cafeteria, and after lunch we returned to the auditorium to continue watching Master's lecture videos until 5 p.m. When it was time to leave, I let other people go first as I might slow them down or block their way. At the same time, I was looking through the crowd for my acquaintance so that I could ask him to call a motorcycle taxi for me. As I slowly stood up and put my weight on my feet, I didn't feel any pain. I looked at my foot and quickly removed the bandage. I was totally stunned. There was no fluid coming out of my toes. I then walked a few steps and felt no pain at all. With no hesitation I walked all the way home by myself.

When I arrived, I took my husband's hand and walked around him several times. I kept shouting with delight, “My foot is cured! My foot is cured!” Tears couldn't help but stream down my cheeks. My husband was at a loss for words and hurriedly asked me what had happened. I forced myself to calm down and then told him the whole story of my day. After listening to my account, he also thought that this was unbelievable. I have had ulcerations on my foot for ten years, and many different kinds of treatments could not cure it. Yet after watching the video lecture of the Master of Falun Gong for one day, I could easily walk home without feeling any pain.

My foot had completely recovered within one month, and I became a Falun Gong practitioner. I was more energetic, and didn’t have to spend one cent on medicine. My friends, relatives and medical staff who had given me treatments, all felt that Falun Gong is so miraculous. One of the doctors even asked me for the book Zhuan Falun to read. Also, my husband, daughter, sister and brother-in-law started to practice.
