(Minghui.org) Having good health is everyone’s dream, but many suffer from diseases that even modern medicine cannot cure. Falun Dafa, however, has enabled many of its practitioners to recover from incurable diseases. Based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Falun Dafa was introduced to the public on May 13, 1992. In the past 28 years, practitioners in over 100 countries have improved their physical health and uplifted their moral character, becoming better citizens of society.
Back in 1998, six years after the introduction of Falun Dafa, China’s General Administration of Sports organized health professionals to conduct a total of five surveys on the healing effect of Falun Dafa. Nearly 35,000 practitioners in Beijing, Wuhan (the capital of Hubei Province), Dalian (a metropolitan city in Liaoning Province), and Guangdong Province participated in these five surveys.
Results showed that 98% of the participants had experienced improved physical health and saved an average of about 20 million yuan (or $3 million) in medical expenses per year for their employers.
Zhuan Falun, the main teachings of Falun Dafa written by its founder Mr. Li Hongzhi, was published in China in late 1994. Two years later, it became one of the top-ten bestsellers in China. Currently translated into over 40 languages, it is the Chinese book that has been translated into the most foreign languages.
This series is a collection of experiences about Falun Dafa practitioners who have benefited tremendously by reading the book and living by the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Cancer, AIDS, and rheumatoid arthritis are often considered incurable diseases. But through doing the five sets of exercises and following the principles of Falun Dafa, many practitioners have had such rare diseases cured, in addition to improving their mental state.
Below are some examples.
Ms. Li Guixia is a 56-year-old kindergarten teacher in Chaoyang County, Liaoning Province. She was once diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer. After taking up Falun Dafa on June 24, 1996, she regained her health within three days, and her tumor had disappeared. While telling people about her personal experience with Falun Dafa, she was arrested and detained many times.
Ms. Tang Lihong, from Xiantao City, Hubei Province, was diagnosed with stage four nasopharyngeal carcinoma in 2007. Her case was declared incurable by many of the best hospitals in the province; her husband even divorced her due to her bleak situation. Though she spent almost everything she had on treatment, her symptoms did not subside. Fortunately, she was introduced to Falun Dafa in early 2015 and decided to begin the practice. Shortly after that, she made a complete recovery.
Ms. Wang Xiaozhi, 72, is from Chaoyang City, Liaoning Province. After being diagnosed with heart disease and liver cancer in her 40s, she was too weak to take care of herself and had even planned her own funeral. In the late ‘90s, she happened across Falun Dafa and began practicing it, living according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Both her heart disease and liver cancer were miraculously healed. While she was sharing her story, Ms. Wang was arrested in May 2018 and later sent to Liaoning Women’s Prison to serve a five-year sentence.
Mr. Wu Junde is from Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. He was diagnosed with late-stage leukemia in his 30s. His body had difficulty producing red blood cells due to an extremely low platelet count; it was ruled an incurable disease. He turned his hope to various qigong practices with no success. After he began practicing Falun Dafa in July 1997, all of his leukemia symptoms disappeared within a week. Since then, he has become a firm Falun Dafa practitioner.
Ms. Xia Yilin from Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province, had stomach problems since the age of seven. Her parents are both physicians, with her mother practicing Western medicine and her father Chinese Medicine. Her aunt is also an expert on gastrointestinal diseases. But none of them could help her, and neither did any of the treatments she sought elsewhere. Eventually, her illness turned into stomach cancer and her condition worsened to the point where she could not take care of herself. After discovering Falun Dafa in March 1998, she started practicing it. Within a short while, the stomach problems that have tormented her for over 38 years were gone.
Ms. Li Guibin is from Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province. She was diagnosed with colon cancer and had chemotherapy six times. But that did not help her––she ended up planning her own funeral. A friend introduced Falun Dafa to her in 2003. She began doing the exercises and reading Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa's teachings. The more she read, the better she felt. After exercising and reading the book for over a week, she noticed that her energy returned to her. Soon enough, she regained her health and her hair even grew back.
Ms. Su Jiaying is a physician from Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. She contracted rheumatoid arthritis when she was 22. It is a debilitating disease, causing swollen and deformed joints, extreme pain, and limited mobility. She lost hope many times and even contemplated suicide, but she ultimately couldn't do it because her children needed her. As a doctor, she knew that it was an incurable disease. Medicine could only alleviate some of the symptoms, and the side effects of these medicines were serious.
A neighbor introduced Falun Dafa to her in 1996 and Ms. Su began to read the book Zhuan Falun. Realizing that the teachings taught people to be good, she has practiced it since then and followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in her daily life. Gradually, all her illnesses vanished; she has not needed to take any medicine since then.
“Falun Dafa Is the Best”
Ms. Wang Shumei is a farmer in her 50s from Boli County, Heilongjiang Province. Since she was young, she had many diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, chest pain, migraines, hepatitis B, gastrointestinal ulcers, and so on. Her fingers were deformed, her joints were swollen, and the pain was excruciating. After the birth of her child, her health declined even further. None of the treatments that she tried helped her.
After coming across Zhuan Falun in 1998, she was impressed by its profound teachings.
“This is what I want,” she recalled. “Falun Dafa is the best, and it will solve all my problems.”
Her diseases were gone soon afterward. Abiding by the principles of Falun Dafa, Ms. Wang worked hard, took good care of her in-laws, and her business even picked up. As she and her children were enjoying a happy life, however, Ms. Wang was persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and sentenced to seven years in prison. As a result, her entire family was devastated both mentally and financially.
“It's Like a Miracle!”
Ms. Yu Zhaoxia is from Xianghe County, Hebei Province. She used to have many physical issues: sciatic nerve pain, rheumatic heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and stomach problems. She tried numerous treatments including medication, acupuncture, and qigong practices. After this lasted almost four years and the torment continued, she lost hope and even considered suicide.
Fortunately, she heard about Falun Dafa in 1998. After practicing for one week, her joints were no longer in pain and her other illnesses also disappeared. She was amazed, saying, “It’s like a miracle!”
She followed the teachings and strove to be a good person. Pleasantly surprised to see these changes, her mother-in-law also began practicing Falun Dafa.
Ms. Zhao Guiyan is from Qianxi County, Hebei Province. She contracted an unknown disease in the winter of 2011. Her four limbs twitched continuously, and her internal organs also began cramping up. She went to several renowned hospitals in Beijing, but had no success. Seeing all her money spent in vain on medicines that were unable to help her, Ms. Zhao lost her hope in life.
With no other choice, she retrieved a copy of Zhuan Falun that she had put away when the persecution started in 1999. She only practiced it for a short while back then and had already forgotten most of the movements.
Several days after Ms. Zhao started to read the book and do the exercises again, her symptoms subsided and later completely disappeared. As she began telling others about how Falun Dafa improved her life, the police arrested her and sentenced her in 2014 to a three-year imprisonment. Her husband could not handle the stress and passed away. She was barred from seeing him in his last moments.
120 Chinese Medicines in Vain
Mr. Gong Guoqing, 78, is from Gujiao City, Shanxi Province. He used to have a strange disease and could not keep food down. Whatever he ate, he would throw up shortly after. He also had to wear winter clothes even in the heat of summer because he would feel cold all the time. He went to various hospitals and tried all sorts of treatments, including both Western and Chinese medicine, but nothing worked––he could not even get a diagnosis. It was an unknown ailment, according to the physicians. One physician had even prescribed 120 Chinese medicines for him, but his health continued to deteriorate.
He came across Falun Dafa in the late '90s. As he read the main book of Falun Dafa, he began vomiting blood and pus, one basin after another. After that, he felt very comfortable. He knew that his body had been cleansed.
His food intake normalized shortly after he began practicing Falun Dafa. His energy was back, and he was able to work again. His family was amazed at his recovery––now in his 70s, he is still able to work and take care of his blind wife.
He was arrested for his belief in May 2020 at age 78, and his wife is anxiously awaiting his return.
Recovery from Generalized Weakness from Unknown Cause
Mr. Liu Erli is 78 years old and retired from Lengshuijiang Steel Plant in Hunan Province. He lost three fingers of his left hand due to a work accident. In 1997, he developed strange symptoms that lasted for two years. He had trouble breathing and wasn't able to keep food down. He was also very weak, and hardly had the energy to walk.
In August 1998, his wife heard of the healing power of Falun Dafa and wanted him to give it a try. He did so and recovered within a week. He and his family are deeply grateful for Falun Dafa and its founder. But under the CCP's persecution, he was arrested 18 times and given forced labor four times. At age 73, he was sentenced to three and a half years in prison. He is still a firm practitioner of Falun Dafa.
Falun Dafa Heals a Twelve-Year-Old Wound
Ms. Liu Daju, a farmer from Linqing City of Shandong Province, had suffered from all sorts of illnesses, such as cholecystitis, rheumatism, gynecological diseases, hydronephrosis, and osteomyelitis (bone infection). She developed osteomyelitis at age 12. The wound could not heal and it oozed pus year-round. The smell was awful. Her parents spent a fortune, but nothing seemed to heal the wound.
She began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, at the age of 24, after a friend introduced it to her. She started by studying the teachings for one hour. On the third day after she studied the teachings, her wound from osteomyelitis was finally healed. Her kidney disease was gone as well. She became healthier than ever.
A Recovery from Guillain-Barre Syndrome
Mr. Teng Shijun from Tumen Yanbian City of Jilin Province was weak and sick since childhood. At age 16, he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome: an acute polyneuritis with no specific treatment, with muscle weakness as one of its symptoms.
After beginning practicing Falun Dafa in May 1996, Mr. Teng held himself to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. His health got better day by day; one month later, he completely recovered from this incurable disease.
Recalling these great changes, he said, “Falun Dafa healed me and helped me regain my health. I am able to contribute to society and care for my family again. I am deeply grateful to Falun Dafa for the new life.”
Because he refused to give up his belief during the persecution, however, he was persecuted. This included the termination of his employment, three detentions at a brainwashing center, and two labor camp terms. In order to avoid persecution, he left home for eight years.
The Blindness That Never Happened
Ms. Huang Genhui, 74, is a retired teacher from Chongqing. At age 40 she had developed a breast tumor, while her Meniere’s syndrome would flare up from time to time. One day she was hit by a soccer ball, which resulted in macular hemorrhaging and retinal detachment in both eyes. Her prognosis from ten hospitals concluded that she would be blind within five years. In order to raise her two young children, she sought treatment everywhere. But none of them were able to alleviate her symptoms.
She began practicing Falun Dafa in 1993. Within three days, her breast tumor went away. All of her other illnesses also disappeared after she listened to the Falun Dafa teachings. Her body became younger and healthier. What's more, the blindness predicted by all the physicians never happened. Her performance at work was outstanding and the classes she taught became the highest-performing for many subsequent years. She is now healthy and energetic.
Ms. Cao Yingchun from Heilongjiang Province got sick in 1992. It was not until 1995 that she was finally diagnosed with myasthenia gravis, an intractable autoimmune disease that causes weakness in various muscles throughout the body. She ended up bedridden, with no choice but to face her empty walls day and night. As a result, she lost her will to live.
When she was in critical condition, her friend brought her a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book on Falun Dafa. In the beginning she was lying in bed reading the book. After a week, she could eat and became able to swallow food again. Her daughter was wild with joy.
Ms. Cao completely recovered in less than a year. Seeing the miracle that occurred for an incurable disease, all her friends and relatives were amazed by the wonder of Falun Dafa. Because she told others her personal story, she was arrested, beaten, and sentenced to eight years in prison. After she was released in 2012, she was arrested again in 2014.
