(Minghui.org) My sister had osteoporosis and had to stay in bed most of the time. Her doctor advised her to stay in the sun for long periods every day, which required her to go up and down stairs frequently. Every time when she moved, she had to be cautious to avoid bumps or falls to avoid bone fractures.
If that was not enough, she also suffered from severe headaches. Despite large amounts of painkillers every day, the situation did not improve, and she was very frustrated.
Her husband, on the other hand, had hereditary polycystic kidney disease. Four of nine of his siblings died from it between the ages of 45 and 65. He had major surgery, during which more than one hundred cysts had to be drained with a needle one by one. It was very painful.
Unfortunately, it was far from over. Even more cysts emerged a few years later, and he had to receive dialysis. My sister was there every day, and she saw buckets after buckets of fluid and blood being carried away. She was very upset and often cried. Less than two years after the surgery, however, the cysts came back, and they were all over the kidney. As a result, they had to go to the hospital again and again.
The doctor told my brother-in-law in August 2015 that his illness had no cure and that he had to rely on dialysis for the rest of his life. This left him in despair. He was often struck by fatigue, making it difficult even to sit for long periods.
When I visited, I told them not to give up and suggested, “Maybe Falun Dafa can help you.” I told them that many other people had seen their health improve after learning Dafa.
I had actually talked to them about Dafa in the past, but they did not listen. “Falun Dafa is banned by the government. I can't do it,” said my sister. Later, she tried some other qigong practices, which made her emotionally unstable. In the end, whenever I visited her, I suggested that she listen to Falun Dafa music. That helped a lot.
I then told her listen to lecture recordings of Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa. She agreed. Following my advice, she often recited, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Not long after, my sister improved significantly. She asked her husband to listen to the audio lectures with her, and told him, “Falun Dafa teaches us to be better people. It's the opposite of what the [Communist Party] propaganda said.”
Thinking there was no better way and seeing that the practice didn't cost money or cause pain, he followed her suggestion.
The couple started to listen to the audio lectures every day and soon began to do the exercises. Within several days, my brother-in-law felt more energetic, and he was very happy.
Two months later, they went on a vacation, something they could never have imagined before. “We even climbed a mountain, and I was the first one to get to the top,” he said proudly.
“We are so glad you told us about this practice,” my brother-in-law said to me. “And thank you, Falun Dafa, for everything!”
