Power of Dafa: From Bedridden to Independent Living Within Six Months
(Minghui.org) Before I began to practice of Falun Dafa, I was bedridden and suffered from severe diabetes, hypertension, vertigo, and rheumatoid arthritis. My knee joints were painful, swollen and had stiffened over time.
The doctor did not recommend surgery, for I was too old and had diabetes. I was discharged from the hospital with some painkillers.
When a relative, who practices Falun Dafa, was told about the seriousness of my situation, she visited me. She had tried to tell me before about the power of Dafa, and she spoke to me about it again. This time, I agreed to give it a try.
I read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, and even after one read felt much better physically and mentally. I began to do the exercises. After about a month, the joints of my legs and ankles became terribly swollen. I did not let this deter me in my determination to practice Dafa, especially since my relative had told me that this was testing my steadfastness. Gradually, my condition improved, until one day I was able to walk again, without crutches. My family witnessed the power of Dafa.
Six months later I had recovered to a great extent. I returned to my normal life, could take care of myself again and could even bend my knees to a certain extent.
Having witnessed my health improvement, my wife also took up this cultivation practice. She had been diagnosed with gallbladder inflammation and heart problems, and surgery was not advised. After she became a practitioner, she recovered and no longer is bothered by any illness symptoms.
