(Minghui.org) When I was in my forties, I contemplated suicide, as living with debilitating health problems was more agonizing than death. Fortunately I came across Falun Dafa at my lowest point. The practice gave me a new life and now, 19 years later, I am still as healthy as can be. Falun Dafa also restored the health and happiness of many other people that I know.

My Story: Given a New Life

I am 63 years old, from Daqing City in Heilongjiang Province. My friends said I look much younger compared to previously, and my complexion became rosy. I have not had any health problems since I started practicing Falun Gong, also known Falun Dafa.

I used to suffer from many types of illnesses, including heart disease, low blood pressure, over-active thyroid and severe tracheitis. Sometimes, I became so overheated that I had to lie on the floor. I sweat all day long. It was at this point thay I thought about committing suicide.

Since I started practicing Falun Gong in 1997, everything turned around. I experienced the joy of being healthy again. I am so lucky to have found Dafa. I always tell my friends, “My life is given by the Master of Dafa, otherwise, I wouldn't live on this earth.”

Over 80 with a Heart Like a 40-Year-Old's

My aunt is over 80 years old. She has been practicing Falun Gong for more than 10 years.

She looks energetic and her skin is smooth. She told me that she does everything on her own.

Recently she had a sudden pain in her back, and her family urged her to see a doctor given her advanced age. She obliged, but the doctors found nothing wrong with her. Instead, they were surprised to discover that her heart was as strong as a 40-year-old's.

She told the doctor that practicing Falun Gong made her healthy.

Auntie Chen's Hair Turn Black

Auntie Chen is 78. She has been practicing Falun Gong for over 10 years. Her hair has turned from gray to black.

Auntie Chen has a younger sister who suffered from kidney disease. When her sister's life was at the risk, Auntie Chen encouraged her to practice Falun Gong. Her sister began practicing and she recovered.

Auntie Chen's brother-in-law didn't believe that practicing Falun Gong could cure illnesses. However, since he witnessed the miracles that happened to his wife, he began to practice too. Their son and daughter saw the power of Falun Gong and also started to practice.

A Hunched Back Becomes Straight

Auntie Li is 82 years old and used to be so ill that she was bedridden. I told her that she would benefit from reciting “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

After reciting this for sometime, her gray hair started to turn black. Gradually she could sit up, and eventually she was able to move around inside the house. She can now walk with crutches. She used to have a hunchback of nearly 90 degrees, but now her back has become straight.
