[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Falun Dafa Gave Me the Unimaginable Joy of Being Illness-free
(Minghui.org) Excerpt: For the first time ever, I experienced the wonderfulness of an illness-free body. I finally understood why Falun Dafa practitioners went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa despite of the risk of being detained. A healthy person could never understand how it feels to go from being plagued with chronic illness to suddenly becoming completely healthy.
Sick All My Life
I am in my sixties and live in Jinan City, Shandong Province. My life before learning Falun Dafa was filled with hardships and tribulations.
My father was a doctor. He told me that I suffered from congenital heart disease. My heart was not fully developed and the blood supply in my body was not sufficient. I was not as energetic as a child should be, and I remember my hands and feet being cold in the winter. My bones and fingernails were brittle, and my mother often held my hands and murmured that I would not live long.
I was not like other children. Besides being physically weak, I had so many worries and troubles. As a teenager, I suffered all kinds of ailments: hair ringworm, dandruff and beriberi. My shoulders were covered in dandruff; if my blistered feet became dry, the skin would crack. For several decades, I had to put up with these symptoms and I developed an inferiority complex, pessimism and antisocial tendencies.
I also suffered from constipation since childhood. I tried many treatments when I was an adult but the results were minimal and it accompanied me for over forty years.
I was in my thirties in 1989 and menstruated twice a month and each time it was heavy and lasted six or seven days. I was diagnosed with a uterine tumor. When I was in my forties, the tumor grew and I lost blood and suffered from severe anemia. It affected my heart. I could hardly breathe day or night and it felt like my heart was about to split apart. I felt a huge intangible weight pressing on my chest and back. The pain was beyond description. At the same time I was tortured by cervical spondylosis, frozen shoulder and lumbar disc herniation.
I needed operations for the uterine tumor and lumbar disc herniation, yet my poor heart was not able to bear any surgeries. Life was nothing but suffering for me, yet I managed to survive. This was a miracle. I didn't go to see any doctors or take any medications, but continued on, each painful day.
I became disabled, and my parents had to take care of me. My husband had to cook and clean after work. My family lived in agony.
In 2003, my family members learned that Falun Gong has amazing health benefits and borrowed the book Zhuan Falun from a friend. Due to the TV propaganda against Falun Gong, I kept my distance, yet I was desperate, so I picked up the book just to see.
I grew excited upon discovering the profound principles in the book. I soon had reactions as my body was purified. When my legs were being purified, I felt like they were crawling with insects; they were extremely itchy with piercing pain. When my intestines and stomach were purified, I kept vomiting and having diarrhea for two hours and almost couldn't bear it. Several days later one fingernail which had been hidden in the flesh for several decades grew out, strong and hard. When I could use my nails for the first time, I was so excited that I wanted to rush out to the street to let everyone know.
Falling Back into the Abyss
My brother opened a new factory in Chongqing in 2006 and asked my husband to work there. I went with him. Out of fear, I didn't bring Zhuan Falun or the exercise music cassettes with me and didn't study the Fa or practice the exercises. Soon I had a relapse of my illnesses. I had no strength and my face turned pale. I had difficulty walking stairs or even standing. My husband was afraid and told me: “You were energetic when you came here. If you don't recover, what will I say to people when we go back? Let's go to the hospital.” I was hospitalized, but then discharged the next day. The doctor said: “Your heart is not strong enough to undergo surgery. You'd better return home for treatment.”
There was no other way so my husband searched the internet for medications and bought them no matter how expensive they were as long as it was nutritious and supplemented the blood. I felt hopeless. I knew clearly what would happen if the tumor was broken and infected the rest of my body.
Returning to Dafa, Completely Purified
My nephew got married at the end of 2006 and my brother asked us to go back home. Then my life turned around. In February 2007, I went back to Chongqing with the book Zhuan Falun and the exercise cassettes. I started to study the Fa and do the exercises seriously this time. In less than 20 days my body was completely purified and all my long-term diseases disappeared. It was soul stirring when the uterine fibroids dissolved and came out. For three days the rotten hard dead flesh was discharged constantly. The size of the lumps ranged from as large as an egg to as small as chopped peanuts. The tumor that was inside my body for nearly 20 years was cleaned out in just three days! Ten days later, the beriberi, constipation, cervical spondylosis, and lumbar disc protrusion were all gone. I was given a new life.
For the first time ever, I experienced the wonderfulness of an illness-free body. I finally understood why Falun Dafa practitioners went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa despite of the risk of being detained. A healthy person could never understand how it feels to go from being plagued with chronic illness to suddenly becoming completely healthy.
We returned home in April 2007. My relatives, friends and colleagues were surprised to see me in such a good state. They asked “How did you become a new person?” My friends were amazed by the miracles of Dafa.
My daughter got married in May 2008 and we visited our relatives in Tai'an. We climbed Mount Tai to the top, yet I was not tired. It would have been inconceivable for me to do this before. Again, they witnessed the miracles of Dafa.
My daughter gave birth to twins in 2009. I carried them up and down the stairs. My neighbors admired me so much for my good health. I used to be the “topic” at family gatherings. They gossiped how poor my health was, how pale my face was and what kinds of nutrition I needed. Now I am their “topic” for a different reason. They often now say, “The second sister is very healthy; she is the healthiest person in the family.” Now I have rosy cheeks and a shining face. People think that I am only in my forties.
I could not stop my tears when writing this article. Our compassionate Master pulled us out from hell, cleansed us and gave us healthy bodies. As beneficiaries of Falun Dafa, we have every reason to abide by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, consider others first, and be practitioners that benefit our families and society.
