From Crippling Pain to Becoming Pain-Free and Healthy (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Dai Yiwei is a beautiful girl from Taiwan. She has always been a top student at school. She went to the Taipei First Girls' High School and National Taiwan University; these are the best schools in Taiwan. She also obtained two Master's degrees from the University of Connecticut in biotechnology and computer engineering. However, when she was thirty years old, her wonderful life suddenly encountered a huge change.
Ms. Dai attended the celebration of “World Falun Dafa Day” at Union Square in New York city on May 11, 2008, eight months after she started practicing Falun Gong.

Ms. Dai Suddenly Had a Car Accident and Suffered Severe Internal Injuries
Before she graduated from the University of Connecticut, she was already hired by a company at a high salary. In 2005, only one month after she started to work, her car was hit by another car from behind on her way home. In the accident she suffered severe injuries as well as a light cerebral concussion.
The doctor asked her to take one month off and rest. But after one month off, she hadn't gotten any better, and more places in her body began to ache. Then the doctor suggested: “It seems to be getting worse if you rest; you should try exercising.” Listening to the doctor's advice, she went back to work.
Several months later, her health condition became worse and worse. At first, only the joints at the hip, knee, and wrist (where she suffered from the collision) hurt the most. Then all the joints and her entire body began to be painful. In the end, it was even difficult for her to walk. Whenever she walked a single step, she had to rest for a minute. After she walked another step, she rested for another minute. So she quit her job and returned to Taiwan for medical treatment.
After she went back to Taiwan, she found an orthopedic surgeon of Chinese medicine, and he massaged every joint in her hand and pulled on the joints all over her body. The doctor told her: “Every joint inside your body has been dislocated, that's why you have so much pain.” She asked, “Then why didn't the x-rays show any problems?” The surgeon answered her: “All the dislocations are within the range of measurement of error for an x-ray, that's why they weren't discovered earlier. But it's too late because they have become old injuries, and it's almost impossible to cure them now.”
Worse still, she developed some neurological sequelae later, and she developed a condition called fibromyalgia, which is incurable with western medicine. She lost the ability to live on her own. Her breath, body temperature, and blood sugar levels all became disordered. She passed out very easily, and any movement of her body caused great pain. Wherever she went, she needed to take an oxygen tank with her, otherwise she might pass out at any time. One time when she was at the hospital, she woke up because of the tremendous pain, she wanted to ask the nurse to give her some morphine, but the pain was so great that she couldn't speak at all. She said: “I didn't know in the past that we needed so many cells in order to speak. Every cell in my body was suffering great pain. All my willpower and strength was used to endure the pain; I didn't even have the strength to make a sound.”
Learning Falun Gong to Save Herself
Since she wasn't cured in Taiwan, she decided to go back to the United States to rejoin her husband. Three days before she went back, she found a traditional Chinese medicine doctor who specialized in joint disease; so she wanted to give treatment another try. That doctor had remarkable medical skills; she used a pricking pin to assess the condition of her kidney, liver, stomach, bone, and bone marrow. All the blood samples she obtained from Ms. Dai Yiwei's acupuncture points were black, indicating that all of these organs were problematic. In the end, the doctor told her: “Now, no one can save you; you should save yourself. You can try to practice Falun Gong, which has the power to heal all your diseases.” Ms. Dai said: “She gave me a Falun Gong flyer and a flyer about the persecution. She encouraged me to learn Falun Gong from the Falundafa.org website. I took these two precious sheets of paper with me back to the US.”
After she went back to the States, she didn't start to learn Falun Gong right away. After her husband went to work in the daytime, she had to do the housework on her own, which led to immediate dislocations of all her joints. She lay in bed for two weeks before she felt better.
Later, she asked her mother to take her back to Taiwan for further medical treatment. But her mother told her that they had spent all their savings on her previous treatments, and if she wanted more treatments, they would have to borrow money to do so. Thus Ms. Dai thought she should try to practice Falun Gong. At the beginning, she treated Falun Dafa as an ordinary qigong practice. She did the exercises, and her hip joint became dislocated again. So she had to stay in bed and couldn't get up because of the pain.
She thought, “Maybe I did something really bad in my previous lives that I need to repay it for the rest of my life.” She felt sorry for herself the entire night. Then she thought that since that the Chinese medicine doctor so seriously recommended Falun Gong to her, maybe she should look more into Falun Gong before she gave up so easily.
The second day she went to the Falun Dafa website, which recommended that all new practitioners read the book Zhuan Falun. When she read the book, she was amazed.The next day, she visited the website the again. She saw that the website suggested that all new practitioners finish reading Zhuan Falun all the way through without stopping, and she did so.
When she read: “Think about it, everyone: What matter is it to teach qigong toward high levels? Isn’t this offering salvation to humankind? Offering salvation to humankind means that you will be truly practicing cultivation, and not just healing illness and keeping fit.” (Zhuan Falun) She was deeply touched. As she continued, she read: “One should return to one’s original, true self; this is the real purpose of being human. Therefore, once a person wants to practice cultivation, his or her Buddha-nature is considered to have come forth.” (Zhuan Falun) After she finished reading Zhuan Falun, she was very excited. She believed in the truth of everything explained in Zhuan Falun, and she made up her mind to practice Falun Gong.
Remarkable Recovery After Practicing Falun Gong
The day after she finished the book, upon waking up, she found that her hands and her entire body weren't painful any more. And it wasn't painful when she got up and walked downstairs. All the pain that she suffered in the past two years disappeared. It was like a dream to her that all the pain disappeared overnight. But she wasn't sure she was granted the opportunity of another life. “Has Master started to take care of me? There are indeed divine beings, and they are so powerful. I have felt it myself, although I didn't really see them.”
Two days later, she still didn't feel any pain. She went to the practice site and she meditated for thirty or forty minutes with her legs in the half lotus position. She didn't experience joint dislocation, but instead felt very comfortable. She became very excited: “Now I know, I am Master's disciple.”
After she started cultivating Falun Dafa, all the diseases she had were cured overnight and she became more healthy. On May 11, 2008, after practicing Dafa for eight months, she attended the activity to celebrate “World Falun Dafa Day” for the first time. She said: “On this day, we celebrate Master's birthday and express our gratitude to Master. I can only repay Master by cultivating more diligently.”
