(Minghui.org) In the past, I worked as a logger in the mountains, lifting and handling heavy logs in what is traditionally seen as a man's job. Over time, such hard labor caused stress and injury to my spine and lower back, and I developed debilitating back pain. I became bedridden and was unable to stand for several months.

My husband couldn't stand to see me suffer any longer and eventually took me to the hospital. After a CT scan, I was diagnosed with a herniated disc in my lower back. I was told by doctors there was nothing they could do. They told me to take it easy, and manage the pain with strong medication.

Such a prognosis was no surprise, as a neighbor of ours suffered a similar back injury, and over the years nothing had worked, even though they spent nearly 50,000 yuan on treatment. But my husband would not give up on me and found a physiotherapist to give me daily massages.

The pain from the massages was excruciating. The therapist would grip my neck and grab me by the hair, pulling and lifting my head.

After ten days of treatment, it became unbearable. I asked the therapist what he was trying to do. He said he was trying to unblock the hundreds of energy channels in my body and restore the flow of energy.

A Different Approach

His mentioning the opening of energy channels made me recall something I read previously. It was an excerpt from Zhuan Falun, the main text of the self-cultivation practice Falun Dafa, written by Master Li Hongzhi.

In it he said:

“The cultivation in our Falun Dafa avoids using this method of one energy channel bringing hundreds of energy channels into motion. From the very beginning, we require that hundreds of energy channels be opened up and make simultaneous rotations.” (Zhuan Falun)

At that moment, I decided to take up the practice of Falun Dafa, to see if I could open these energy channels through practice.

I had come across Falun Dafa before it began to be persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and knew it was good. But because of the persecution, I did not stay with it.

I looked up some local Dafa practitioners and asked for their help. Six practitioners came to my home. They read Zhuan Falun's nine lectures - one lecture a day – with me and taught me the exercises. Initially, I could only do the standing exercises by leaning against a wall, as my legs were unsteady.

Inside, I begged Master Li to help me recover.

Full Recovery

After being bedridden for months, the improvements to my condition were miraculous. Three days in, I was able to stand on my own. Two days after that I could bend forward. The day I finished reading through Zhuan Falun - nine lectures in nine days – I had completely recovered and could move about freely.

My husband, of course, noticed my rapid improvement and was delighted.

After witnessing my recovery, he said to me with excitement, “Others have spent a lot of money, over many years, for treatments that did nothing. You didn't spend a penny, yet were completely cured in just nine days! Remarkable! Falun Dafa is amazing, and your master is truly great!”

The story of my miraculous cure spread through the neighborhood. My relatives, friends, and former coworkers couldn't believe that I had recovered so quickly.

Many of them echoed the words of my husband, telling me how incredible Falun Gong was, and that they wanted to practice as well. I overheard a neighbor's daughter tell her mother, “Look, practicing Falun Gong is so good, you should do it, too.”

This made me very happy. I am very grateful to Falun Dafa and to Master Li. Thank you!
