(Minghui.org) My mom is 87 years old and suffered all kinds of illnesses for most of her life. But since she began to practice Falun Dafa, she is longer bothered by illness.

I remember when I was kid, my mom took lots of medication. I was always afraid of losing her since her sisters passed away at a young age.

She told me that she fainted twice and even felt that her soul had gone far away, but she returned and awakened when she heard her child crying.

Starting to Practice Dafa in her 70s

About 10 years ago, my mom had a severe headache. Both my sister and I practice Falun Dafa, and I was certain that if our mom took up the practice, she would return to good health.

My sister and I shared our understanding with her and she agreed to begin practicing Falun Dafa. She had only had one year of schooling and had a difficult time reading Zhuan Falun, the main book of Dafa. However, she was confident she could learn to read the book.

With other practitioners' help, my mom learned to read Zhuan Falun. She has read the book every day since the year 2005.

She has benefited greatly from the practice and is now quite healthy. Before, she couldn't eat cold or oily foods, but this is no longer a problem. She used to take pain killers every day, but hasn't touched any pain medication since she began practicing Falun Dafa.

At the beginning of her practice, she experienced illness symptoms, but became healthy without resorting to medication.

She has now practiced Falun Dafa for 10 years, and many people say that she looks much younger than her 80 plus years.

During family get-togethers, my mother says that she would have died years ago if it were not for Dafa. Now, she takes care of herself and helps with the household chores for her children.

My entire family and relatives support my mother in her Dafa cultivation because they witnessed the great improvements that it brought in her health and happiness.
