(Minghui.org) I am 62 years old this year and live in a small town in Jiangnan. Before practicing Falun Dafa, I had many illnesses such as chronic antral gastritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cervical spondylosis; these illnesses made my life so painful that I hardly wanted to live. But everything changed after I started practicing Falun Dafa.

The Start of a Decade-Long Illness

I developed constant stomach pains a year after my son was born. The discomfort got worse every year until it got to where I lost most of my appetite and strength.

The doctor told me that it was antral gastritis, which required that I take medicine every day. However, I did not get better and had to keep a cotton pad tied around my stomach all the time. I often vomited bile and was so weak that a gust of wind could have blown me over.

My 13-year-old son was extremely worried and cried for my husband to take me to the doctor. I was in despair when the hospital couldn't cure me.

Even as I endured the chronic gastritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cervical spondylosis, many other health problems surfaced. I had to use a cervical traction device twice a day for 50 minutes to help with my dizziness and vomiting. My illnesses were a blow to our family both mentally and economically. A while later, I even developed laryngitis.

However, things changed in 1997.

Practicing Falun Dafa

My husband ran into a Falun Gong practitioner in 1997 and told her about my situation. The practitioner said, “Ask your wife to practice Falun Dafa because it has great healing abilities and can help people keep fit.”

He brought home a copy of Zhuan Falun. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it past the first few pages.

My husband happened to see the practitioner again later. She told him, “An audio recording of practitioners sharing their experiences of practicing Dafa will be played at a listening session tonight. You and your wife should attend.”

We went, and I heard many practitioners speaking about the miraculous healing effects of Dafa. Some of them even once had the same illnesses I did.

I was moved. That night, I had a strong thought: “I want to practice Falun Gong.”

The next morning, I went to attend the group exercise session. Shortly after, a miracle happened! I didn't have to use the cervical traction device that day, and I didn't feel dizzy at all.

I then consistently did the exercises, read the Fa every day, and followed Dafa's requirements to be a good person.

In less than a month, all the health problems that had plagued me for over a decade were cured. I became strong and developed a rosy complexion. My husband's severe insomnia of 20 years was also cured after he did the exercises for a few days. Dafa is truly amazing!

After Dafa restored our health, we no longer had to spend money on medicine and could use our savings to set up a small business. Our financial situation got better.

Master and Falun Dafa brought my family back from the verge of collapse.

Daughter-in-law Cured of Gynecological Diseases

After my daughter-in-law married into our family, she could not conceive for three years. She was told that her fallopian tubes were blocked. She spent over ten thousand dollars on treatments, but to no avail.

I told her to practice Dafa. Because my family had already witnessed the miracles of Dafa, my daughter-in-law accepted my suggestion and started practicing.

A week after she started practicing, she went to the hospital for a check-up and was told that her fallopian tubes were no longer blocked.

Three months later, she got pregnant and our family now has a chubby baby. Everyone in our family was grateful to Master for giving us this blessing.

My son has also benefited from Dafa. There was an occasion when he felt unwell and lost his appetite. When the hospital could not make a diagnosis, he got worried.

I said to him, “Don't be afraid. Believe in Falun Dafa and Master. You don't have to take any medicine and you will recover. Just read the Dafa book!”

After he read Zhuan Falun for two days, his symptoms disappeared.

Rising Moral Standards

Before practicing Dafa, I liked to choose good vegetables when buying groceries and could not tolerate it if I lost money.

However, after practicing Dafa, I understood that my purpose in life is to return to my original true self.

I also understood that “Zhen-Shan-Ren is the Sole Criterion to Discern Good and Bad People” (Zhuan Falun).

Master said,

“If you want to return to the original, true self and move up in cultivation, you must conduct yourself according to this criterion. As a human being, you are a good person only if you can follow this universe’s characteristic of Zhen-Shan-Ren. A person who deviates from this characteristic is truly a bad person.” (Zhuan Falun)

Because of this, I resolved to diligently follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a good person and raise my moral standards. After that, I was no longer picky about vegetables and did not try to haggle.

When the vegetable vendors noticed that I often tell them to keep the change, they said, “People who practice Falun Gong are good people. They have never tried to take advantage of us.”

Another time, when a butcher accidentally gave me more change, I returned the money back to him. He was so grateful and said, “Falun Gong is really good! Those who practice Falun Gong are really good!”
