(Minghui.org) My husband suddenly had chest pain, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath one day. This was in 1994 and he was only 45. He went to the hospital and was told by the cardiologist that he had suffered a heart attack. He underwent a heart stent implant procedure.

Three months after the surgery, however, his symptoms worsened. He returned to the hospital. After a thorough examination, the doctor found that the blood vessel with the stent was blocked again. But with the condition of his heart and the location of the blockage, the doctor could not perform surgery.

He saw several other cardiac specialists, and they all told him the same thing. The only suggestion that the doctors gave him was to lead a strict, healthy lifestyle and to have heart attack medicine with him at all times.

We also tried many alternative therapies, but none of them seemed to help.

Hearing that Falun Gong was very effective for health and healing, my husband took up the practice in 1999.

After practicing for a period of time, he told me that he wanted to stop taking his medications. I was skeptical and worried that this would be too risky. I insisted that he continue to take the medicine, but he said that he felt very uncomfortable after taking them. So I no longer forced him to take the pills.

Two weeks later, his situation improved significantly. He had a better appetite and began to ask for food that were off limits for him. When I saw that he could climb the stairs to the fifth floor without stopping, I knew he had truly recovered. His doctor was also very impressed.

My husband had stopped working after he was diagnosed with heart disease in 1994. He spent a lot of time in the hospital in the following years. After he began practicing Falun Gong in 1999, he became energetic and soon went back to work.

Having witnessed his remarkable recovery, I also started to practice Falun Gong in 2001.
