Dafa Gives Me Wisdom: Becoming a Doctor at Age 50
(Minghui.org) I stepped on the cultivation path of Falun Dafa in 1996. I suffered from many illnesses at the time, including shoulder inflammation and pain that radiated along the path of the sciatic nerve. After starting to practice Dafa, I recovered from all my illnesses.
When I turned 50, I went back to school and obtained all the credentials needed to become a doctor of Chinese medicine. My family and friends have also benefited from Dafa, as I changed from being selfish and physically weak to being strong, persevering, and considerate.
Becoming a Doctor
I was incarcerated because I refused to give up my belief in Dafa. After my release in 2001, I left home to avoid further persecution. I lost my job, became destitute, and did not have income for many years.
My brother had a small clinic. However, it was difficult for him to hold on to nursing staff, given the work environment and low pay. He asked me to work at his clinic.
I took classes while working for my brother. I juggled time between work and school and hardly had any time to rest. However, I always squeezed in time to read the Dafa teachings.
Dafa opened my wisdom. I eventually changed my plan. Instead of becoming a nurse, I learned the theory and practical application of Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I became a doctor of Chinese medicine at the age of 50.
Family Benefits from Dafa
My mother-in-law had diabetes ten years ago and was hospitalized. The poor blood flow to her feet caused blisters and other complications.
Doctors recommended amputating her feet to save her life, but we insisted on the more conservative treatment because we believed in the power of Dafa.
We read the Dafa teachings in the hospital and recited, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Gradually, the flesh in her feet grew back. Doctors then suggested skin grafts, but we were not tempted either because we believed that if the flesh could grow, so could the skin. Indeed, patches of skin began to grow, and within a month, her feet were completely covered with new skin, and she could walk again.
My mother also cultivates in Dafa. My father, a medical doctor, knows that Dafa is good. When patients came to ask my father to treat their leg and arm pain, he told them to learn Dafa from my mother.
A few years ago, my father had spinal canal stenosis. The pain in his legs was unbearable, and he couldn’t walk. Doctors said that he needed immediate surgery. My mother and I told him to strengthen his righteous thoughts and listen to Master’s lecture recordings. After a while, his legs were fine. Although he is now in his 80s, he can hike up mountains as if he had never had any problems with his legs.
Dafa Bestows Blessings
I treated a patient with bad back pain. She said, “You have a good temper, and you are a good person.” I replied that I practiced Falun Dafa and told her about Dafa and the persecution. In the end, she quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Another patient had several serious illnesses, and according to doctors, each of them could be fatal. However, she was doing well as she kept reciting, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” for many years.
Two years ago, I treated a young woman for back pain. She was impressed with me and asked why I could be so calm and patient. I told her about Dafa and the persecution. She quit the CCP, after which her back pain disappeared.
Many of my friends have learned about Dafa and quit the CCP. Many of them have since received blessings, and some have begun to cultivate in Dafa.
