(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Dafa in June 1998 and all my illnesses were cured soon after. My husband was also impressed with the way Falun Dafa improved my health. After the persecution began in 1999, however, I was harassed by the police and village leaders, so my husband no longer held Falun Dafa in high esteem.

He developed a disease called “synovitis” in 2010. His knee was swollen and it was difficult for him to walk. He could not get a good night's sleep. My father and his brother took him to find a treatment and he found an orthopedic doctor who promised to cure his disease. The doctor extracted yellow pus from his knee and used fumes around the affected part. For two months, my husband had to stay home and recuperate; then he went back to work. Soon after, the disease recurred, and he was, once again, unable to work.

I suggested that we practice Falun Dafa together. I told him, “It can't hurt and you have nothing to lose. I believe if you do the exercises, read the book and follow the Falun Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, you will recover from your illness.”

He was skeptical, but at last I convinced him to give it a try.

We studied the teachings of Falun Dafa together at night and did the five exercises together early every morning. One day, during the second exercise, he exclaimed, “Thank you Master Li (the founder), thank you!”

Then he told me how he felt a warm energy flow from head to toe for a good 30 seconds. I replied, “Master Li is cleansing your body! It is an encouragement to keep practicing.”

My husband then quit smoking and drinking and became a diligent practitioner. We have over an acre of corn and 300 jujube trees that we take care of. We surprise our neighbors with our energy. They know that Falun Dafa is good.

My husband also withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party. He often talks about how thankful he is to Falun Dafa for saving his life, and that he will continue to cultivate more diligently.”
