(Minghui.org I would like to share my experience of recovering from life-threatening uremia through practicing Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa.

I'm now 52 years old. I had lived a happy and healthy life until 1996, when I was diagnosed with nephritis. I turned to all possible medical professionals, but no one could help me.

One of my mother's friends told her that she used to have rheumatoid arthritis, but it was gone after she began practicing Falun Gong. My mother couldn't wait to tell me about it.

I was skeptical, but still did the exercises following my mother's advice. To my surprise, my nephritis was soon gone.

I still clearly remember how my body was cleansed. During the group exercise, I kept running to the restroom and discharging a lot of bad stuff. My symptoms of nephritis were gone after that.

Seeing the marvelous health benefits of Falun Gong, my mother started practicing too.

But I failed to stay diligent with the practice.

I was hit by kidney disease again two years later, and it developed into uremia. I had to stay in a hospital for four months, and relied on dialysis. It cost me more than one hundred thousand yuan for dialysis each week, but my condition got worse and worse.

My doctor said I could only live for a few more months. All my money was used up.

I was living a miserable life under financial burden and physical suffering. I was haunted by the terror of death, and my family was also in despair.

My brother came from another town to visit me. He was scared and saddened by my poor condition.

One day, he saw my mother reading the book Zhuan Falun and asked her what kind of book it was. She suggested my brother read it himself.

My brother read the book before bedtime, and put the book next to his pillow. He had a dream in which he saw golden lights coming out from Zhuan Falun. The golden rays were so bright and clear.

As soon as my brother woke up, he rushed to the hospital and urged me to pick up the practice again. I agreed and requested to be released from the hospital. My doctors approved it since there was nothing else they could do for me.

Upon returning home, I felt as flimsy as a piece of paper. But I read the Falun Gong book and did the exercises with great determination and strong hope.

One week later, I was able to get out of bed and walk normally.

Having almost lost my life, I realized how important Falun Gong is to my life and the chance to practice it is so precious.

One month later, I was able to ride my bike anywhere I wanted to. My doctors thought it was incredible!

When I went to work, my boss patted me on the shoulder and said to me, “I didn't think I would be able to see you come back to work.”

To be honest, no one could believe that I would live, given my terrible condition. The practice is simply miraculous.

My brother also began to practice Falun Gong after witnessing this miracle.
