(Minghui.org) One month ago, a friend told me that he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a condition of the nervous system that weakens one’s muscles and physical function. He also had hypertension and elevated levels of blood sugar, cholesterol, and protein in his urine.

I suggested that my friend practice Falun Dafa. I also told him how the Chinese Communist Party is brutally persecuting Dafa and killing the practitioners for their organs. He was infuriated and condemned the persecution. “I want to practice Falun Dafa and be a good person,” he said.

When my friend first started to practice Falun Dafa, he couldn’t lift his arms while doing the exercises. His legs were also out of commission. Yet he persisted in doing however much he could. He also took Fa study very seriously and asked me many questions about the things he couldn’t understand. 

He said to me, “It must be that I incurred so much karma in my past lives that I have these diseases. Although I was diagnosed with ALS, a terminal illness, I’m still fortunate enough to encounter Dafa and understand the true meaning of life. Practicing Dafa is like starting a new life and I will cultivate it until the end!”

A month passed by very quickly. Incredibly, his muscles began to strengthen and he could lift his arms without any external support. The results of his blood and urine tests also returned to normal ranges. All of this happened after he stopped the medical treatment and began to read Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Dafa, and do the Falun Dafa exercises.

He told me that he used to take up to eight different kinds of medications and supplements, but his condition didn’t improve much. Now he has stopped the medication and has a normal diet without worrying about any food restrictions - yet he is healthier! My friend told me, “Falun Dafa gave me a new life and I’m the happiest man in this world!”
