(Minghui.org) I live in the countryside in Heilongjiang Province and am in my 60s. My two sons are both married, and my husband works an acre of land.

I came down with a strange ailment in August 2011. The tip of my left ring finger went numb and the skin started to peel. At first it was about the size of a pea and then continued to spread to the upside of the finger. It spread to all my fingers and my palms. The skin was hard and thick and looked like scales. My hands were itchy and hurt, which was hard to tolerate.

I visited hospital after hospital until finally, in October and December of last year, I went to the Second Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University to see experts. First they said I had eczema and then they said it was a fungal infection and kerotosis. The doctor visits and medication were very expensive, but the condition didn't improve.

My elder sister, who lives in Shandong, asked me to visit her in Yantai City. My husband encouraged me, hoping she might be able to find a good doctor.

I Agreed to Give Falun Gong a Try

I arrived in Shandong Province on February 26, 2014. My sister saw that I looked sickly. She said immediately, “Practice Falun Gong.” She clarified the truth about Falun Gong to me and gave me examples of people that were blessed after accepting the truth and about how practicing Falun Gong improves one's health. I was willing to give it a try.

My sister helped me to study Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, and taught me the five exercises.

I was willing to learn and felt what Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, said was great. Every sentence touched my heart. She took me to a group Fa study on March 2, 2014.

The second day I suddenly noticed that my hands no longer itched. The cuts were gone on the third day. Two days later, the skin peeled off and the skin on my hands was soft and no longer hurt. I continued to feel better.

I stayed there for three weeks. Within less than 20 days, my hands recovered. Because the Falun Gong group location is far away, I studied the Fa by myself most of the time. I went to the group study three times.

The day before I left, I went to the group study. The practitioners saw how I had changed and were reluctant to see me leave. They said that the first day they saw me, my skin was dark and gray. It was black from my neck to behind my ears. Now my skin was rosy and fair. I was full of energy, and I had changed into another person.

I thank Master for cleansing my body. I can work and live a normal life again. I will let my family members, relatives and neighbors witness the beauty of Falun Gong based on my return to good health.

I feel like when bitterness is finished, sweetness begins. Again, I am grateful for Master's merciful saving and for practitioners' help.
