(Minghui.org) Soon after my wife began practicing Falun Gong in 1996, she recovered from all of her illnesses. She also got rid of her bad temper, and our family environment became more peaceful. Although I do not practice, I have benefited a lot from Falun Gong.

Giving Up Smoking

My business lost a large amount of money in the winter of 1998. I was already suffering from bronchitis and pharyngitis because I had been a heavy smoker for more than 20 years. I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day.

I became very distressed, and my illness worsened. I coughed all day and night and could not lie down to sleep since it made the coughing worse. Seeing how I was suffering, my wife asked me to quit smoking.

I had previously tried to quit several times, but failed each time. My wife then urged me to learn Falun Gong. She said that I would definitely be able to quit if I learned the practice.

I then started reading Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong. In two weeks, I read the book three times. During those two weeks, I noticed that I had stopped coughing, and my severe cold was gone. I also did not have an urge to smoke once I began reading the book. My addiction to smoking for 20 years had disappeared, just like that. Thank you Master Li!

Kidney Stone Gone

Although I had read Zhuan Falun and learned the Falun Gong exercises, I did not keep up with it and became a supporter of the practice instead. One day in the summer of 2003, I experienced excruciating pain. I could not lie down, and I could not sit or stand up straight. I could only bend my back and kneel on the bed all night while groaning in pain.

I went to the hospital the next day and was told that I had a large kidney stone that was blocking my ureter. The hospital did not have the equipment to treat me at that time, so I was discharged.

I went to a different hospital the following day. My children had to carry me inside because I was in so much pain that I could not straighten my back or walk.

When I was waiting to get an ultrasound, my wife talked to the doctor about Falun Gong. He was surprised that she still practiced, and he repeated the Chinese Communist regime's propaganda about the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident, even though it has been debunked by a third-party media. In fact, the incident was found to be fabricated by the Communist Party to incite hatred and misunderstanding against Falun Gong.

I interrupted him and said, “The self-immolation incident was a hoax. It was staged to slander Falun Gong. Practitioners are all good people. Have you seen any practitioner commit suicide or set themselves on fire? It is wrong that Jiang Zemin (the former leader) and the Communist Party persecutes Falun Gong!”

While I was talking, my back straightened by itself, and the excruciating pain in my gut and back disappeared. The ultrasound showed no kidney stone. It was a miracle!

I yelled, “Falun Dafa is great! Dafa's Master removed the stone for me!” Several doctors and nurses witnessed the incident. I now tell everyone I meet “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is not wrong and Falun Dafa is truly wonderful!”

Supporting Falun Gong

The local police and officers from the 610 Office harassed us often and asked me to persuade my wife to stop practicing. I told them, “No, I am not able to persuade her, nor will I ask her to stop. She practices Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and is a good person. In fact, you are wrong. Falun Gong is indeed very good!”

My feet and legs became swollen and I could not walk in November 2016. I also could not sleep due to the pain. The doctor said that I had gout, and there was no cure. He prescribed some pain relievers and sent me home.

I took the medicine, but there was no change in my condition. I then stopped taking the medicine and began to sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” The next morning, my legs were no longer swollen, and there was only a little bit of pain in my feet, stomach and back.

My wife asked if I could drive and pick up a few boxes of Dafa calendars from someone's house. I replied, “Yes, of course. You see, the swelling has gone away.” On the way to pick up the calendars, I repeatedly recited, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

That evening, I watched the entire DVD of Master's lecture to the Australian practitioners with my wife. I turned off the computer and realized that I no longer had pain in my feet, stomach or back.

From my own experiences, I wish to tell everyone: “Falun Dafa is good and I truly support it!
