Hair Grows Back After Thirty Years of Autoimmune Disease-Induced Hair Loss

November 07, 2019 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in Northeast China

(Minghui.org) I went into Falun Dafa cultivation with the hope of finding a cure for my ailments. At that time, I suffered from various afflictions such as, stomach disease, rheumatism, and alopecia. I always felt that death would be preferable to this kind of life.

Hair Loss for Thirty-plus Years

Soon after I began practicing Falun Dafa, most of my physical problems disappeared and I had a healthy body. However, my hair didn't grow back, which may have happened, because I was very attached and emotionally upset about suffering from alopecia.

My hair started thinning when I was only 22. There were no wigs or hair pieces available, so the burden of my continuing hair loss felt like a mountain weighing down on me. I was angry, and sought medical advice everywhere. But nothing helped.

I’m thankful for my good husband who did not criticize me, but on the contrary, encouraged and comforted me. After going to lots of hospitals and spending large amounts of money, I stopped looking for a cure. Later I bought a wig, which improved my appearance.

After practicing Falun Dafa, new hair began growing on my head, which made me happy. However, I didn’t know how to improve my character and look inward. So the joy was temporary as my hair began falling out again.

In recent years, I have been truly cultivating by learning to look inward, raising my xinxing, and letting go of attachments and human notions. I followed Master's principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and tried to be a good person. I began to let go of jealousy, resentment, the attachment to seeking a cure, and so on, and instead built up compassion.

New Hair After Solid Cultivation

One morning in 2018, I was half asleep at approximately 4:00 a.m. and saw that I had grown a layer of hair. When I woke up, I realized that Master was letting me see hope. Sure enough, in early 2019, new hair growth was noticeable, and it didn’t fall out.

I had been suffering from alopecia for more than 30 years, but Master cured me and it didn't cost me a penny. Thousands of words cannot express my gratitude to Master.

I am now 52, and my hair has grown in. My friends, relatives, and neighbors were happy for me and asked me what I did to get the hair to grow. I said, “I didn't take any medicine. I just tried to be a good person based on the Dafa principles, and cultivate steadfastly. I sincerely respect Falun Dafa and recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and now have a normal head of hair.”

I used to have a bad temper before I practiced Dafa, and I was angry whenever I got in trouble. My husband played mahjong at that time, and we often quarreled about it. After practicing Dafa, there were great changes in my family environment. My younger sister-in-law asked me, “Sister, what has influenced you so much? You no longer argue over things.” I replied: “It’s the principles of Falun Dafa that enabled me to improve. No matter what others say, I will hold myself to the standards of a cultivator.”

Indeed, after practicing Dafa, my family is in harmony. I hurry to complete all the work so my husband can just play mahjong. My mother-in-law used to be stubborn and hardly believed in anything, but because of my changes, she became a cultivator and quite sincere about practicing Dafa.
