(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Dafa in June 1996 when I was 38 years old. Prior to that, I had been an invalid for 18 years, suffering from 34 different health problems. During those years, I longed for the day my miserable existence would end.

In 1996, a friend invited me over to her house to watch Master's video-lecture series. By the seventh lecture, I understood the nature of disease and knew that Master would take care of me if I conducted myself like a true Dafa practitioner. With that thought in mind, I threw away all of my medicines.

That night, my body trembled, my heart raced, I was drenched in sweat, and I felt weak all over. Yet, I was fully aware that Master was cleansing my body for me. The next morning, all of my symptoms disappeared, and I felt very light and comfortable. I thought to myself, “Master, the miserable part of my life is over!” I felt like the happiest person in the world.

Master said,

“They will distinguish the righteous from the evil, obtain true teachings, lighten their bodies, enhance their wisdom, enrich their hearts, and board the boat of the Fa, sailing smoothly. How wonderful! Strive forward with every effort until Consummation.” (“Enlightenment” from Essentials for Further Advancement)

Master has never prohibited Dafa practitioners from taking medicine. Instead, he teaches us the real cause of illness and cleanses the bodies of true cultivators. I finally knew why my health did not improve, even after 18 years of taking medicine. Falun Dafa is indeed a righteous Fa and the highest science! Master tells us that only by following the principles of the universe, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, can we have a healthy body and a pure mind.

In 2009, I developed the symptoms of facial paralysis, yet my heart was unmoved. I kept doing the things that I had to do in my daily life, and 10 days later all of my symptoms were gone. I burst into tears when I thought of my two colleagues who have been suffering for years from facial paralysis, even though they take medicine every day.

I wrote this article in the hopes that people who have been deceived by the Chinese Communist Party's lies will wake up and realize that Falun Dafa is good, thus securing a bright future for themselves.
