Once Devastated By Rheumatoid Arthritis, Young Woman Recovers Through Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) Ms. Wang Qing (alias), 29, a Shandong Province resident, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 12. The illness, also known to many as 'chronic cancer,' put her and her parents under tremendous economic and mental pressure. Thanks to her mother's assistance and her own resilience and perseverance, she graduated from high school and was admitted to a college in Shandong Province in 2009.
Although she was able to walk to classes during the first three months of college, her condition deteriorated. With all her limb joints swollen and badly deformed, she could no longer attend classes. Her whole body ached constantly and she was not even able to roll over in bed on her own without severe pain. Her jaws were so swollen, she could not open her mouth to eat. On top of that, she had a constant low fever. She had to drop out of school to seek medical treatment.
Upon returning home, Ms. Wang became bedridden. She could not roll over in bed, and her mother had to help her once every 30 minutes all night long. This soon became too intense and demanding for her mother, who was near a total breakdown, both physically and mentally.
When Ms. Wang was still in high school, an elderly Falun Dafa practitioner from their neighboring village, upon hearing about her illness, told her mother about the power of Falun Dafa and brought them the book Zhuan Falun. However, because of the persecution of Falun Dafa, her mother did not dare to try it.
Over the years, her mother had sought all kinds of treatments, including Western medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, voodoo, and anecdotal folk remedies, without any success. She had reached the point of complete despair and desperation.
Introduced to Falun Dafa
One night in the summer of 2010, after caring for her daughter for six months, she said, “I have been thinking the whole night. We have not dared to practice Falun Dafa. Yet some people who are more knowledgeable than us have been practicing it in spite of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) ban. Maybe it is truly good. Should we give it try after all?” They decided to try it.
Dafa practitioner Ms. Li brought over the exercise instruction video. The young lady learned the exercises by watching the videos. Ms. Li also helped her quit the CCP, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers and told her, “Now that you are practicing Falun Dafa, Master will take care of you. You won't need to take medicine any longer.” She was shocked to hear that and thought, “How wonderful it would be if I did not have to take pills!” Her mother said to her, “Should we stop the pills then?” She replied, “Okay. No more pills.”
As her mother did not have a deep understanding of Falun Dafa and was merely trying it out among other treatments, she arranged for her daughter to see a renowned doctor.
The young lady had read only two pages of Zhuan Falun and did not want to waste time going to Beijing, as they had visited hospitals in Beijing twice already and had also been to hospitals in Qingdao City and Nanjing City.
However, her mother put her into the vehicle and they headed for Beijing. Since she could not bend her knees, she had to lie down on the back seat and lean against her mother for the entire eight-hour trip.
She saw nothing that was different from prior trips and told her mother she wanted to go home and practice Falun Dafa.
Dafa Proves its Power
With her righteous thoughts and determination, she was able to bend her knees and sit in the passenger seat on the way home. She did not experience any pain or difficulty. Even the swelling in her ankles subsided.
At home she made an effort to do the exercises, even though it was hard to move some of her joints. Within a month, she only needed her mother to help her roll over twice per night. Another month passed, and she no longer needed her mother's help.
One day her mother told her that she had a dream after reading the chapter of Zhuan Falun about animal possession, in which she saw a gush of wind blowing a large amount of dubious stuff out of their home. The young lady thought that she would see the day of complete healing.
The next challenge for her was reading the book Zhuan Falun. Even though she had made every effort, she felt extremely drowsy when she read and could not open her eyes after reading half a chapter a day. One day, as she gathered all her strength and willpower to finish an entire chapter, a sensation of cold air escaped her body and she immediately felt clearheaded, without a hint of sleepiness. She was amazed and became even more convinced of the power of Dafa.
Breaking Through Layers of Separation
She continued reading Zhuan Falun and doing the exercises, and her health gradually improved. However, she still felt as if there was a thin layer separating her from Dafa, and although she could understand each and every word in the book, the meaning had not reached deep into her heart.
She asked herself, “How can I break through this layer of separation?” She heard that some practitioners memorized Zhuan Falun, so she decided to memorize the book. She was able to recite Zhuan Falun by the spring of 2016. She could stand up to do the exercises at that point and could later walk on her own.
Her skin had become very rough over the years, as if she was covered in a layer of dead cells. After practicing Dafa, the skin on her hands and face started to peel off to reveal smooth and delicate skin underneath. The skin all over her body soon followed. With the exception of her feet and arms, which have not yet completed the process, her skin has been transformed and rejuvenated and become normal and beautiful, like the skin of a healthy young woman.
The young lady has returned to good health and no longer depends on any medication. During the past several years of practicing Falun Dafa, Ms. Wang has transformed from living on many medications to being healthy without the need for a single pill; from being bedridden and not able to roll over on her own to being able to walk; and from being a sick patient with coarse skin to a young woman with smooth and beautiful skin.
She now helps her mother in their family business. She helps with marketing their products and also in arranging for shipping and delivery.
Ms. Wang and her mother now both practice Dafa every day and their business is prosperous. She is very optimistic and hopeful for her life and her future. Once devastated by a severe and stubborn disease, she has truly regained her life through practicing Falun Dafa.
