[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] “It's So Great to Have a Doctor Who Practices Falun Dafa!”
(Minghui.org) I'm a family doctor with my own clinic in a small town in northeastern China. Since I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996, I have been very healthy and full of energy. Although I'm 65 now, I don't feel tired even after a long day of work.
No matter how busy I get, I read two lectures of Zhuan Falun before I go to bed. I follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily work.
I have noticed that, as I have improved my mind by cultivating, my wisdom and medical skills have also improved. Sometimes I could quickly tell what diseases my patients had, without much information provided to me.
I became very well known in my town for my patients' fast recoveries and my reasonable prices. Everyone now knows there is a “Doctor Gao” who practices Falun Dafa and who they can always trust.
The Medical Miracles That Science Couldn't Explain
I had a young patient with severe, chronic kidney disease. She saw many doctors, but she didn't improve much. It became more problematic when she became pregnant. Her high blood pressure shot up and she had seizures towards the end of her pregnancy. She eventually had to give up the baby—twice. She and her family were devastated.
She came to me for help. Instead of asking her to take any more medicine, I encouraged her to practice Falun Dafa. She took my suggestion seriously.
About four months later, she had significantly improved. She had the feeling that she had completely recovered. To confirm it, she had a thorough checkup and discussed the results with me. I told her that everything on the tests looked normal, that her kidney problem was gone, and that it would fine for her to get pregnant again. She burst into tears.
Now her child is already six years old. Her family is very grateful to Dafa.
Another patient of mine, a diabetic, also became interested in learning Falun Dafa. I gave her the Dafa books and a video of Master teaching the exercises. About four months later, she came back and told me that her diabetes had gone away, and that the sugar levels in her blood and urine were normal. She was amazed by the healing power of Dafa. Her family said, “Falun Dafa is truly great!”
Being a Good Doctor
As a doctor nowadays, it is easy to find ways to make big money. But as a Dafa cultivator, I have to take wealth lightly and be responsible for my patients.
A new private hospital opened in my town in the spring of 2014. The hospital officials invited me to work for them several times, offering an annual salary of 200,000 yuan and promising that my whole family could work at the hospital.
My heart remained unmoved and I turned them down. The goal of most private hospitals is revenue. With the price of drugs increasing, it's harder and harder for most people to afford medical treatment. I couldn't do that just to make more money.
I don't make much by having my own clinic, but I get the joy of helping my patients recover. I also have the freedom to let them know the facts about Falun Dafa and help them quit the Chinese Communist Party.
A lady brought her four-year-old granddaughter to see me. The girl had a rash of itchy, inflamed blisters, which was a typical symptom of chicken pox. She told me that she had taken the child to a hospital in the morning, and the doctor said that it was an allergy rash and suggested that the child get infusions four times a day for four days.
When she was undecided about whether to do it, another person recommended to her that she come to see me: “There is a Doctor Gao who never cheats or over-charges her patients. You should go see her.”
I told her that the itchy blisters were normal and that the little girl would be all right after taking some antihistamines. I gave her four pills. When she asked me how much, I told her they were only eight cents and I gave them to her for free.
She came back the next day and told me that her granddaughter was fine after taking two pills. “Falun Dafa is really great! It's so great to have a doctor who practices Falun Dafa! I want to learn it myself!” she exclaimed in front of a full house of patients.
Sometimes I would encounter patients who had bad memories and kept asking the same question more ten times. I didn't get angry or impatient. Instead, I tried my best to answer them and accommodate their needs. One patient said, “Other doctors don't even let you ask one single question.” I said that I wouldn't do that, because I'm cultivate Falun Dafa and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
A reporter from a local TV station called me in October 2010. She said that they did a survey, and I was selected as the best doctor in town. She wanted to do a TV program about me.
I told her that the reason I was able to do my job well was because I practiced Falun Dafa and tried to be a better and better person every day. “I will only do the interview if you let me tell the truth, otherwise I can't do it,” I said. Fearing the persecution, the TV station eventually gave up on the interview.
Cherishing the “Doctor-Patient” Bond
I really cherish every single patient that comes to me, and I seize every opportunity to explain the facts about Falun Dafa to them. I always tell them to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” before they leave. Those who do as I suggest recover faster. Many of my patients agree to quit the Party every day.
My husband sometimes complained to me that my prices were too low. When others charged 50 yuan, I only charged 5. I told him that I hoped that would make more patients come to see me, so that I could help them learn the facts about Falun Dafa and quit the Party. No matter how busy I am, I'm fulfilling my responsibility as a Falun Dafa practitioner and am happy about it.
With Master's protection, I have been walking on my cultivation path smoothly all these years. Thank you, Master! Thank you, Dafa!
