Medical Miracles Brought About by Falun Dafa (Part 9): Facts Speak Louder Than Words
(Minghui.org) Having good health is everyone’s dream, but many suffer from ailments that even modern medicine cannot cure. Falun Dafa, however, has enabled many of its practitioners to recover from incurable health problems. Based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Falun Dafa was introduced to the public on May 13, 1992. Over the past 28 years, practitioners in more than 100 countries have improved their physical health and moral character and become better citizens.
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 surveys.
Results showed that 98% of the participants 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.

(Continued from Part 8)
Since Falun Dafa was introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in 1992, about 100 million people had taken up the practice by the eve of the suppression in 1999.
What made the practice spread so quickly?
There is a Chinese saying that “The smell of wine is not afraid of a deep alley,” similar to the proverb “Good wine needs no bush.”
As one person truly improves the state of their mind and body, their family witnesses it, their community learns about it, and people at their workplace may also want to join in––creating a chain reaction. Below are some examples of this kind.
One Week to Recover from Leukemia
The mother of Beijing resident Mr. Pang You used to suffer from serious leukemia. She received chemotherapy in 1997, but the treatment did not work and she was sent home. Helpless, she could do nothing else but wait as she counted down the days.
In 1998, one relative advised her to practice Falun Dafa and played the exercise music for her. After listening to the music, Mr. Pang's mother felt much better and slept well through the night. She also did not need her infusion or her oxygen cartridge. This had not happened in a long time.
Inspired by what happened to her, she started to do the exercises and listen to the audio lectures. On the fourth day, she fell asleep for three days straight. When she woke up, she was surprised to find that she was healthy again.
“I'm completely fine! I'm a normal person now!” she exclaimed.
Her miracle shocked her relatives, friends, and neighbors, who thought that this woman in her late 70s could die at any time. Many of them have since taken up Falun Dafa. Seeing his mother’s recovery, Mr. Pang, a manager at a real estate development company, also began to practice.
After beginning the practice, Mr. Pang has been called a good person by neighbors and his friends in the real estate industry. Because of his belief, however, he was imprisoned for 13 years.
Although Mr. Pang’s mother regained her health from Dafa, the mistreatment of her children in the suppression gave her one heavy emotional blow after another. The stress of it took her life in late 2006.
Praised in Factory-Wide Meeting
Heilongjiang resident Ms. Wu Lijun retired from Harbin Power Bearing Factory in her 60s. She used to have an intractable disease called lymphedema (also known as lymphatic obstruction) as a result of dystocia. Her leg swelled badly and constantly oozed fluid. She was in great pain and had sought all kinds of medical treatment from both Western and Chinese medicines, but nothing worked. The doctors had even suggested an amputation.
In 1997, Ms. Wu witnessed a miracle that happened to her coworker, who was a practitioner of Falun Dafa. This inspired her to take up the practice herself. After she began practicing, the swelling in her thigh slowly disappeared and the oozing stopped.
Ms. Wu followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to become a better person. At the time, there were a few practitioners at the factory. Every practitioner worked hard, and didn’t fight for their own personal gains and losses.
They also brought back to the factory the products and materials that they had snuck home before. Moved by these changes, the factory officials praised Ms. Wu and the other practitioners in a factory-wide meeting, telling other employees to learn from them and take up Falun Dafa as well.
After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began persecuting Falun Dafa in 1999, Ms. Wu served almost 15 years in jail for her faith.
A Broken Family Healed
Ms. Mou Yongxia is a retired teacher from Heilongjiang Province. Before she began practicing Falun Dafa, she suffered from blood disease and severe muscle weakness. She was unable to walk for more than a year. In addition to nephritis and heart disease, she also had stomach ulcers and extreme neurasthenia.
Her health worsened after giving birth to twin boys at an advanced age, and she often passed out. She was later paralyzed after falling off a building and was registered as a second-degree disabled person.
Her older twin became disabled due to muscle atrophy. He also suffered from cerebral palsy, mental retardation, and viral myocarditis. Her mother, who came to look after the twins, was burned badly in a natural gas explosion. Her husband divorced her and left her and the twins when they were five. She fell into deep despair.
Ms. Mou started practicing Falun Dafa on October 7, 1998. One month later, all her diseases disappeared, and she was able to take care of herself. Her older son became healthy and was able to walk. His grades improved greatly, and he was even accepted into college. Upon graduation, he was able to find a decent job.
Her 88-year old disabled mother also took up Falun Dafa, and regained her ability to walk.
Many of Ms. Mou's relatives and neighbors were happy to see the family get back on their feet again, and some of them even came to her to learn Falun Dafa.
Rare Illness Cured—Over Ten People Became Practitioners
Ms. Dong Shulan, a 71-year-old from Jilin City in Jilin Province, had suffered from tuberculosis, empyema, gallstones, kidney stones, cervical spine, nephroptosis, and a rare terminal condition where her immature red blood cells deteriorated before reaching maturity. All the medical treatments she sought were to no avail.
She was introduced to Falun Dafa in April 1996. Through doing the exercises and reading related teachings, her health improved day after day. Her health was back to normal within a month. From Zhuan Falun, she learned the importance of self-cultivation and becoming a better person. She also understood that the true meaning of life was to improve her own moral character and return to her original, true self.
Ms. Dong’s husband was very happy to see her changes, and also became a practitioner. Through the practice, he was able to quit smoking and drinking. Their three daughters also took up the practice. Their entire family has lived harmoniously and peacefully since.
Many of Ms. Dong’s relatives, friends, and neighbors saw the changes in her family, and a dozen of them began practicing as well.
Ms. Dong has been harassed, detained, and brainwashed multiple times after the suppression of Falun Gong began. She also was sent to forced labor camps three times and severely persecuted. She has been forced to displace herself to avoid arrest.
In April 2011, Ms. Dong's three daughters, one son, two sons-in-law, and one daughter-in-law were arrested and had their homes ransacked. Her three daughters and one son-in-law were imprisoned.
Medical Doctor Witnessed Dafa Miracle and Decided To Practice
Ms. Yao Juying, a Shanghai teacher born in 1949, had a dysfunctional autoimmune system. She excreted red and white blood cells in her urine, and became extremely sick. Her blood pressure would drop dramatically and subject her to fainting spells. She once even had to receive continuous transfusions in the hospital for two weeks straight. Moreover, she was also incontinent.
Later in 1994, she had menopausal syndromes and bled for two weeks during menstruation. The director of the gynecology department told her that her menstrual drip was an incurable condition.
Ms. Yao received a copy of the book Zhuan Falun from her neighbor. She was moved to tears when she read the book. That night she dreamed that all her illnesses had been cured, and she began to practice Falun Dafa the next day. Her menstruation became normal during her next period, and her incontinence was cured as well. But what excited her the most was that no white blood cells at all were found in her urine test. All her ailments had completely disappeared after only one month of practice.
Her doctor was surprised and asked what medicines she had taken. When Ms. Yao said that she had taken up Falun Dafa, the doctor grabbed her hand and said, “I want to learn Falun Dafa with you!”
Back from the Brink of Death after Attending 10-day Falun Dafa Class
Despite being a doctor of Chinese medicine, Sichuan resident Chen Guorong found herself diagnosed with hepatitis, necrotizing jaundice, cirrhosis, and liver ascites in 1957. The 78-year-old had been in critical condition three times due to a loss of heartbeat.
One night in 1994, right before she was scheduled to check into the hospital, Ms. Chen was introduced to Falun Dafa. It just so happened that the director of the personnel department at her workplace had just finished attending a Falun Dafa class, and told her all about it.
What's more, one of Ms. Chen's coworkers also gave Ms. Chen two tickets for the upcoming class to be held in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province.
A strong desire to survive prompted Ms. Chen to attend. She brought her son with her to the class.
Her body underwent tremendous changes during the ten-day class. All of her diseases disappeared. She looked like an entirely new person, healthy and energetic.
Her changes shocked everyone at her workplace. Many of the people there started to practice Falun Dafa after seeing her changes.
Nearly Two Hundred People Inspired To Become Practitioners
Mr. Niu Wanjiang, an assistant statistician for the Lanzhou Railway Bureau in Gansu Province, had suffered from severe rheumatic heart disease. His heartbeat often shot up to 130 beats per minute, causing him to become short of breath. When it got severe, he had to lie down immediately.
He tried all sorts of treatment, including qigong, to no avail. He eventually lost hope for his situation and thought of jumping into the Yellow River to kill himself.
In February 1996, he attended the Falun Dafa cultivation experience sharing conference sponsored by the Yellow River Theater, and became inspired to take up the practice. From the bottom of his heart, he knew that this was the purpose of his life, and he decided to start cultivating in Falun Dafa.
After the conference, he read the book Zhuan Falun every day. He held himself to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to become a better person. Soon, the disease that had plagued him for more than a decade vanished.
As his body was purified, his character also improved.
His manager at work once gave him a thumbs-up and said, “Falun Dafa is great! You always take the heavy and dirty jobs and work hard.”
A middle-level manager said, “Falun Dafa practitioners are different. If half of our staff could practice Falun Dafa, there would be no need for middle-level management.”
Seeing his physical and mental changes, nearly 200 people at his workplace followed his lead and took up the practice.
Group Leader Asks His Team Members To Practice
Hebei resident Mr. Qin Jianxue, 54, had to quit his job in 1997 due to severe migraines and nausea. He was diagnosed with both hydrocephalus and brain atrophy. With snake band sores, epilepsy, and rheumatoid arthritis on top of it all, his life was very miserable.
In July 1997, he saw several people doing Falun Dafa exercises in the plaza outside his local museum. He decided to join in, mimicking their movements; it felt very comfortable. After the session, one of the practitioners gave him a copy of Zhuan Falun.
Mr. Qin then joined the group in doing the exercises at the plaza every day. His health began to improve. Two weeks later, all his diseases disappeared.
Falun Dafa teaches people to be good and to fulfill their responsibilities in society. As Mr. Qin studied the Fa and practiced the exercises more, his character improved as well. He immediately returned to work as soon as he regained his health. He always put other people before himself when making decisions, which earned him trust and praise from his colleagues and supervisors.
The team leader at his workplace was moved by Mr. Qin’s changes and encouraged everyone to practice Falun Dafa. He also asked Mr. Qin to get a copy of Zhuan Falun for everyone on the team.
