Tortured to Disability in a Forced Labor Camp, a Falun Gong Practitioner Recovers Completely
(Minghui.org) I was incarcerated and severely tortured in the notorious Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, which has since been closed. The day I was released, the guards told my family that I would be paralyzed for the rest of my life. By doing the exercises and reading the Falun Gong teachings every day, I regained my strength and health in a very short time. My rapid recovery demonstrated once again the power of Falun Gong
When I first returned home from the labor camp, I appeared to be crippled because I had to drag my legs slowly when I tried to move. My back, legs, and feet had all been severely injured.
In the labor camp, I was subjected to the Stretching Torture for 60 days. My arms and legs were tied up with ropes, then stretched and secured to the four corners of a bed. I was in extreme pain. Several practitioners have died or become disabled or mentally disordered after being tortured like this.
Not only that, three guards literally threw me down the stairs.
My family and friends were very worried about me. They wondered what would become of me since I was so fragile and couldn't do anything. Even basic movements, such as getting up or lying down, were all very challenging, and I had to lean against the sink to brush my teeth. Nevertheless, I assured them, “The physical constraints that I’m dealing with right now are all temporary. Falun Gong will help me heal very quickly.”
I practiced the exercises and read the Falun Gong teachings every day. At first, the injuries to my back and legs made it impossible for me to bend them to do the fourth and fifth exercises. I kept telling myself, “When it’s difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it’s impossible to do, you can do it.” (Lecture Nine in Zhuan Falun)
Ignoring the pain, I completed all five exercises every day. An amazing thing happened a few days later: I could bend my back and legs again, and all the pain disappeared, too. I even walked over three miles to tell people the facts about the persecution and how Falun Gong could truly help people.
I suddenly realized that I was completely cured one day when I was able to carry a heavy bucket of water by myself. Amazed, my grandmother said, “You’ve indeed recovered now. No wonder so many people tell me that Falun Gong is miraculous. You have proven that they are absolutely correct. It only took you a few days to recover from injuries that were never supposed to heal.”
I replied, “Falun Gong has once again given me a healthy body.”
