(Clearwisdom.net) When I was 26 years old, I began to suffer from sinusitis, migraines, arthritis and other ailments. I relied on medication all year long. For 13 years, treatments at hospitals were ineffective and every winter, I was hospitalized. Every year I spent a few thousand yuan just for medicine alone.

The sinusitis was the most severe and occurred every winter. I had to get penicillin shots for more than two weeks and the dosage was twice that of the other medications I had to take. When the sinusitis recurred, I couldn't breathe through my nose. I often had to take a bottle of ephedrine nose drops with me when I went outside. I needed to squeeze a few drops into my nose after just a short walk. However, that helped me breathe through my nose for only a few minutes. I had to frequently use the drops. I also had to wear a face mask for a few years so that cold air wouldn't get in my nose and prevent others from laughing at me if they saw me breathing with my mouth wide open.

One day during the winter of 2006, I was walking in a park with my face mask on. As I took off the mask to put some drops in my nose, a Falun Gong practitioner walked up to me. She kindly said hello, told me that I looked beautiful and young and the mask didn't look good on me. I told her my condition and she said she could teach me the Falun Gong exercises. She also said that I would not need to wear the mask, rely on medicine or be hospitalized any more if I began practicing. I then asked her, “Is it that magical?” She told me there were more than 100 million people worldwide practicing Falun Gong because of its miraculousness. She also suggested I quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations, since the Party was persecuting Falun Gong, and sincerely recite, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good.” I then asked her to help me quit the CCP. I told my family about my conversation with the practitioner and everyone in my family also withdrew from the CCP, the Youth League and the Young Pioneers. Every day, we recited, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good.”

Later, the practitioner brought me to a practice site to learn the exercises. I then read Zhuan Falun and did the exercises with other practitioners at the site every day. I learned all five sets of exercises in a week. The practitioners then showed Master’s nine-day lecture video. Master purified my body. Mucus looking like pus came out of my nose for a few days. After I finished listening to the nine lectures, I could breathe through my nose again! From then on, I didn't need to wear a face mask or use any nose drops.

In addition, the sore throat, migraines and arthritis I had disappeared and I got rid of all my medicine. My family, friends and neighbors witnessed the positive changes in me and they began to go to the practice site one after another. Master purified their hearts and bodies and they became healthy again. Once when we opened to the second page of Zhuan Falun, with tears in our eyes, we told Master, “Benevolent Master, you never got a drink of water from us, never got any food from us, and never received a cent from us. Yet, you gave us so many precious things. We can only repay Master's kindness through our actions—learn the Fa well, do well on the three things, closely follow Master, and assist Master to rectify the Fa.

My fellow practitioners and I have been determined in our cultivation for over five years now.
