Falun Gong Benefits Society – Medical Professionals (2)
(Minghui.org) Good health has always been of primary concern to people. From ancient to modern times, physicians and scientists around the world have searched for ways to cure disease and keep people healthy.
In May 1992, the introduction of Falun Gong by Mr. Li Hongzhi drew people from all walks of life. Many people, including doctors, experienced miraculous recovery of their health and gained a new life after learning the practice.
The following are accounts of healthcare practitioners who experienced the positive benefits of Falun Gong.
Gynecologist's Overactive Thyroid Healed
Ms. Chen Shujie was in medical school in May 1994 when a doctor at her department introduced Falun Gong to her. She had been suffering from an overactive thyroid. Even after taking medicine and receiving weekly injections for more than six months, there wasn't much improvement in her condition.
Upon learning about Falun Gong, she became interested. After it was introduced to the public, the practice became very popular in China. Ms. Chen was hoping that practicing Falun Gong would also help her. She bought a Falun Gong book and was deeply drawn to the principles discussed, especially that one has to value virtue in order to gain physical health.
After a period of practicing, Ms. Chen's symptoms of excessive thyroid hormone production disappeared and she was filled with energy.
After she graduated from medical school and became a doctor, she continued to practice Falun Gong and applied its principles –Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance – to her daily work. While it was prevalent among her colleagues to ask for bribes from their patients, she refused to do so and treated every patient equally, always giving the best care possible.
Mr. Wang Jiaxing suffered from severe eye injuries in 1987 and gradually lost his eyesight. He was almost blind when he started to practice Falun Gong in 1995.
Because he always suffered from pain in his eyes and a headache when he tried to read, his doctor had advised him not to finish college, as otherwise his vision would become even worse.
But after he began to practice Falun Gong, Mr. Wang was surprised to find that his eyes were no longer in pain, and he felt very comfortable when he read Falun Gong books. His vision gradually returned. Although he'd lost hope for the future, Mr. Wang became enthusiastic about life again. He finished medical school and eventually became a doctor.
From Desperation to Facing Difficulties with Courage
Mr. Chen Tianjian was at the lowest point in his life when the hospital he'd invested in failed and left him with huge debts. Facing tremendous mental and financial pressure from his creditors, his life was full of despair.
Just when he developed the idea of committing suicide, his sister gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Gong. She told him that this book could help him. He read it carefully and was struck by the profound principles that were explained so clearly. He understood that nothing happened by coincidence. He gave up the idea of committing suicide, bravely faced reality, and shouldered his responsibilities.
As he continued reading Zhuan Falun, he was even more moved by Master Li's profound compassion for others and how Teacher Li is teaching people to become good despite our rapidly degenerating society. He made up his mind to follow Master Li to become a good person.
Even as his mind was uplifted after studying the teachings, his body also experienced dramatic changes. All of the ailments that had bothered him for years, including frequent headaches, stomach problems, and high blood pressure, disappeared one by one.
Young Doctor Recovered from Hepatitis and Breast Cancer
In her early 20s, Ms. Su Jiaying suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis and was bedridden for five years. The strong side effects of her medication further induced hepatitis, gastritis, and even breast cancer.
Despite being a doctor herself, she felt helpless with the diseases that were tormenting her every day. Even in the heat of summer, she had to wear long sleeves and heavy socks to avoid catching a cold.
A neighbor introduced Falun Gong to Ms. Su in 1996 and told her that this practice has tremendous health benefits. Upon learning Falun Gong, all of her diseases went away and she was able to wear comfortable clothes again in the summer.
Pharmacist No Longer Suffers from Frostbite
From childhood to adulthood, Ms. Miao Mingli suffered from severe frostbite each winter. Just in her 20s, her doctor had told her that the circulation in her terminal arterial vessels was similar to that of people in their 60s.
After she began to practice Falun Gong in May 1998, however, Ms. Miao never suffered from frostbite again and her neck problem also disappeared.
Practicing Falun Gong also helped Ms. Miao to become more peaceful and understanding. Once, while walking down the street, she was hit by a motorcyclist. Without apologizing to her, that person began to verbally abuse her. Bearing the principles of Falun Gong in mind, Ms. Miao remained very calm. She didn't fight back and tried to comfort that person instead.
Desperate Life Renewed
Ms. Li Yanhui often wondered why her life was so full of bitterness. She suffered from hepatitis B, abnormally rapid heartbeat, vascular sclerosis, and muscle fatigue. Her daughter had a developmental disorder that no major hospital in China was able to cure. Worried for their daughter, her husband often lost his temper at Ms. Li. She became desperate and lost all hope in life.
Ms. Li began to practice Falun Gong in 1997. The practice helped her to understand the karmic reasons behind her misfortunes. She learned to take tribulations lightly and follow the course of nature. Her mind was broadened, she recovered her health, and her family life became harmonious.
Ailing Physician's Life Rejuvenated
Ms. Liu Maimei had all kinds of ailments, from stomach problems to heart problems and uterine fibroids. She was always exhausted and had trouble eating and sleeping.
During the day, she struggled to work as an attending physician and treat her patients. After work, she became the patient herself and had to lie in bed and rest for long hours in order to gather enough energy for next day's work.
Shortly after Ms. Liu began to practice Falun Gong in September 1995, all of her ailments disappeared and she became very energetic. Many of her friends, and even her patients, were amazed by the healing power of Falun Gong.
The recovery of her health also enabled Ms. Liu to provide better care to her patients. Satisfied with her service, many people came back with their friends and family members, with trust in her professional skills and her serious attitude of being responsible for every patient. Even during the peak of the persecution by the communist regime, many patients still came back to see her.
Repeated Arrests, Sentences and Torture from the Persecution
While the above-mentioned doctors all benefited from practicing Falun Gong and also brought positive changes to society by following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, none of them were spared from the nationwide persecution that started in 1999, aimed at eradicating the practice from China.
Ms. Chen Shujie was sent to a forced labor camp for a year and deprived of opportunities for career advancement.
Mr. Wang Jiaxing was also arrested numerous times and sent to brainwashing centers four times. His brother, implicated in the persecution, was forced by the police to shut down his restaurant. His mother passed away after suffering years of distress as a result of the persecution.
Mr. Chen Tianjian was detained five times and sentenced to two years of forced labor.
Ms. Su Jiaying was arrested four times, sentenced to forced labor camp and prison, and subjected to various brutal tortures. Her family was constantly harassed by the police and her child was forced to drop out of school.
Ms. Miao Mingli was demobilized, and her household registration was suspended.
Ms. Li Yanhui was detained five times and her home was ransacked. She was sentenced twice for a total of six years and subjected to constant tortures during imprisonment. The police extorted more than 10,000 yuan from her.
Ms. Liu Maimei was arrested and her home was ransacked several times. The police confiscated her personal belongings worth more than 10,000 yuan. She was taken to brainwashing centers twice and sent to one year of forced labor. She was also constantly harassed and monitored by the police.
