[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] Medical Doctor Introduces Dafa to Patients
(Minghui.org) I am now 78 years old. I have been practicing medicine for many years. I studied and was able to expand my areas of expertise. Besides, I also studied Chinese medicine.
Falun Dafa was instrumental in raising my moral standard. I follow the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance when treating patients.
“Embracing Zhen Shan Ren within the heartOne cultivates self, benefits others ”(“Perfect and Clear,” Hong Yin, Translation Version C)
As a result, some patients who appeared to be seriously ill, and none of the well-known hospitals could help them get better, returned to good health. When treating patients I clarify the truth about Dafa and the persecution. Some patients have agreed to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations, and some started practicing Falun Dafa.
I used to be an internal medicine doctor at a small hospital. I also worked at several clinics, and was assigned to the pharmacy of the hospital. Unlike those doctors at big research hospitals who have access to MRT, CT, Ultrasound, and other equipment, I only used a stethoscope and a sphygmometer [used to measure blood pressure]. A few clinics have a small laboratory for simple tests. But, that did not stop me from being a good doctor.
One patient told me, “My son heard that you are really good. He wanted to have you look at his back problem. But before you even had a chance to treat him, he already felt better.” He thought it was amazing. I was not totally surprised upon hearing that, even though it did sound amazing. Master said,
“And I should add that the energy sent out will be of benefit to whomever is nearby you. This is in keeping with the Buddhist belief in helping all of humanity, in saving all life—not just oneself. And so others might benefit in any of various ways, such as by having their bodies put into balance or healed, even though you didn’t intend it.” (The First Talk, Zhuan Falun)
Then I remembered a man who asked, “Can you treat seizures?” I said maybe. He said that his wife had seizures and went to a hospital. The hospital issued the death notice. “I heard that you are really good, so I brought her here,” the man said.
The patient was indeed in critical condition. She was connected to an oxygen tank and was unconscious. I told her husband to recite “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” next to her ear.
He said, “My wife used to practice Falun Dafa. She was really healthy then. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to suppress Falun Dafa, I didn’t let her practice it anymore. She is like this now.”
“Do you want her to live or die,” I said. “Of course I want her to live,” he answered.
I said, “Then just recite ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance is good’ so that she can hear it. Let her freely practice Falun Dafa..”
The man agreed to support his wife practicing Falun Dafa if she got better. They stayed at the clinic for one day. The next day his wife's condition had improved, and they left the hospital. The man was very emotional and said, “According to the hospital, I could only take her ashes home. It is Falun Dafa that saved her. Thank you Master Li (the founder).”
There are other examples of amazing recoveries. For example, a heart disease patient was hospitalized at the best hospital in our city for over a month and did not show any improvement. Soon after I treated him, he recovered. I also helped some patients who suffered strokes and had difficulty speaking. A patient who was bedridden for two months because of dizziness returned to good health.
Finding Ways to Treat People for Less Cost
The moral standard of today’s society is deteriorating daily. In order to make more money, some doctors tell people that they have this or that illness when they don’t. Some doctors tell their patients that they have serious illnesses when they only have minor ailments.
For a while, I worked as an on-site doctor at a pharmacy. Because my fee was low and I was able to treat many difficult cases, I was praised by patients and word got out. Many patients came to see me. At one time, I treated over 80 people in one day. Many patients from other clinics or pharmacies came to see me.
However, doctors at other clinics and pharmacies were not happy about it. They reported the pharmacy and me to a government agency, saying that the pharmacy had become a hospital. The pharmacy owner asked me what to do. I decided to not cause him any trouble and quit my job. The owner didn't want me to leave, but had no other choice.
I knew I had to help people and tell them about Falun Dafa. I decided to find a busy corner in a park and set up my practice there. I used Chinese medicine methods to help patients. I only charged 10 yuan for a visit.
After I cured a patient with heart disease, I charged him 10 yuan. “Doctor, how come you charge so little? Last year I went to a hospital and they used the same method, and they charged me 3,000 yuan,” he asked. I told him that I am a Dafa practitioner and need to think of others' needs. “Many people are without jobs nowadays. They don’t have money, so I just charge them a few yuan,” I said.One hospital offered me a 10,000 yuan monthly salary, but I declined because I can help more people in the park. An elderly lady was so happy that she learned the truth about Falun Dafa. She withdrew from the CCP and its organizations and became a practitioner.
Police Stand Guard
When I was treating patients in the park, a man was standing next to me and kept watching. When I told others about Falun Dafa, he listened as well. One time, a person was very rude and threatened me. The man walked up to him and said, “Behave yourself!” He then showed his police identification.
I was very surprised. He said, “Don’t be afraid. I will protect you.” Later he told me that he had a relative who also practiced Falun Dafa, “He was the manager of a bank. He was an honest man and never embezzled money. He was arrested for practicing Falun Dafa. But, the three bank managers after him got arrested for corruption. Falun Dafa is really good!” Whenever he sees me at the park, he always shouts “Falun Dafa is good!”
While I practice medicine in the park, I spread the truth of Falun Dafa. Many people benefited from reciting “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is good.” Some people withdrew from the CCP, and some even started practicing Dafa.
I feel so fortunate to be able to cultivate Falun Dafa – it is such a blessing! I am forever grateful to Master, the founder of Falun Dafa.
