(Minghui.org) I am 71 years old, and I began to practice Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) before the persecution started in July 1999. I took up the practice because of my hard-to-cure illness. During my 20-year journey of cultivation, I have experienced serious sickness karma twice, but survived through Dafa and Master's protection.

Pain Reduced While Reading Falun Gong

I had a serious case of prosopalgia, which was caused by my teeth being extracted in 1981. The pain worsened over time.

I went to nearly all the hospitals in my area, but they couldn't help me. By 1996 I could hardly eat, drink, or sleep because of the pain.

My uncle came to my home one day. He handed me a book called Falun Gong, and said, “This book might help you if you would read it.”

“Hospitals can't do anything about the pain, so how can I get better just by reading a book?” I replied.

“Whether you believe it or not, just try it... in case it works,” My uncle insisted.

I couldn't do anything else during that time, so I picked up the book and started reading.

I had a reaction immediately while reading the book. I kept going to the toilet, and I found that my pain gradually lessened.

I realized that the book is from heaven, and started learning the exercises from the illustrations in the book. Amazingly, the pain completely disappeared a month later. The book cured my illness, which I had been suffering from for 16 years.

Master Saved My Life Again

In December 2017, I suddenly found it difficult to swallow. I couldn't even eat soft or liquid food. My son and daughter-in-law were very worried and forced me to go to the hospital.

I was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus. I couldn't eat or drink for seven days after returning home. I just read the Dafa books, did the exercises and sent forth righteous thoughts with my husband. From the fifth day onward, I slept most of the time. My husband then played Master's lectures for me and asked me to recite, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

On the eighth day, I began to drink a little water, and was feeling better with each passing day.

A friend came to see me one day. When she entered the door and saw my healthy, radiant face, she said to me, “I have looked after three people who got cancer and died. Your symptoms were exactly like theirs. Your Teacher can cure cancer; he is really amazing!”

I don't have the words to express my gratitude to compassionate Master.
