Medical Miracles Brought About by Falun Dafa (Part 8): Harmonious and Happy Families
(Minghui.org) Having good health is everyone’s dream, but many suffer from diseases that even modern medicine cannot cure. Falun Dafa, however, has enabled many of its practitioners to recover from incurable diseases. Based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Falun Dafa was introduced to the public on May 13, 1992. In the past 28 years, practitioners in over 100 countries have improved their physical health and uplifted their moral character, becoming better citizens of society.
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 five surveys.
Results showed that 98% of the participants had 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.

Leo Tolstoy, one of the greatest authors of all time, once wrote, “All happy families resemble one another, each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
The hundred million Falun Dafa practitioners worldwide cannot agree with this more. Some have found that once a person is truly assimilated to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, his or her life and surroundings will all move in the right direction. This, of course, includes happy relationships with family.
Ms. Wei Xiujuan, an instructor at Beihua University of Jilin Province, suffered from dysmenorrhea. The situation was so bad that she had to be transfused with 1.4 liters of blood on one occasion. She also had been diagnosed with bronchitis, angina pectoris, cholecystitis, bone hyperplasia, and migraines. Her husband, Mr. Han Yongqiang, also an instructor at the same college, suffered from hepatitis B.
Both of them started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996 and recovered from all of their diseases. Both received awards in the city's young teacher basic skills competition in 1997. However, Ms. Wei was persecuted for her faith until she was in life-threatening condition multiple times. In April 2018, Ms. Wei and her husband were arrested again, and she was sentenced to a three-year prison term.
Husband and Wife Incarcerated for a Combined 18 Years
Mr. Ma Xiongde, a resident of Wuzhong City of Ningxia Province, had a serious kidney stone problem. It was so painful that he often banged his head against the wall or rolled around the floor.
His wife, Ms. Zheng Fengying, had severe rheumatoid arthritis that deformed her fingers. She could not bend her left knee, nor could she tolerate cold weather. Her tracheitis made her cough nonstop, causing pain in her chest and abdomen. She was also diagnosed with severe enteritis and gastroptosis. These diseases forced her to retire at the age of 45.
Mr. Ma and Ms. Zheng started to practice Falun Dafa in May 1997, after which they recovered from their illnesses.
After the persecution began, both were arrested for their faith. Mr. Ma was given a seven-and-a-half year prison term and two years of forced labor. Ms. Zheng was sentenced to seven years in prison and later served two years in a labor camp.
Flesh Regrew on Corroded Finger
Minghui.org reported on February 1, 2018, that a Falun Dafa practitioner named Liannei in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province had her left index finger injured by acetyl bromide, a highly toxic chemical, during pharmaceutical material testing. The finger quickly became red, swollen, ulcerated, and smelly. Because of the healing power of Falun Dafa, her corroded finger grew back its flesh one month later and showed no remaining signs of injury.
Her husband, a senior researcher at the Chinese Academy of Management Science, was diagnosed with intrahepatic hemangioma in 1992. He received intensive treatment for five years but saw no improvement. After he started to practice Falun Dafa in October 1996, he recovered from his illnesses within a month. The doctor who examined him was also surprised by his quick recovery and the power of Falun Dafa.
Zhuan Falun Changes Husband and Wife for the Better
Mr. Xu Xianda and Ms. Huang Xiaoxia, husband and wife, were both laid-off workers in Hegang City, Heilongjiang Province. Mr. Xu suffered from heart disease, high blood pressure, cholecystitis, and psoriasis. Ms. Huang had severe dysmenorrhea and had been treated at a hospital several times without success. Mr. Xu had a bad temper and had beaten his wife several times, once resulting in her needing to go to the hospital.
When working in South Korea, Mr. Xu saw events by Falun Dafa practitioners and heard about the health benefits. Furthermore, Ms. Huang had also read Zhuan Falun before the onset of the persecution in 1999.
Despite the harsh persecution in China, both of them started to practice Falun Dafa in 2010. Shortly after that, Mr. Xu quit smoking and drinking. His temper improved and he no longer abused his wife. He recovered from his illnesses. He experienced the power of Dafa in another way: his thumb was cut by a chainsaw and was attached by only a small piece of skin, but the injury healed within a week.
Ms. Huang recovered from her dysmenorrhea after she began to practice Falun Dafa. She also became more open-minded and tolerant. She not only helped her husband with his business but also took care of her mother-in-law. When they were arrested in November 2014, a police officer testified in court that there were not too many good daughter-in-laws like Ms. Huang.
Recovering from Silicosis Within a Month
Mr. Guan Changfu is a retired soldier in Hubei Province. He was diagnosed with phase II silicosis in 1982. He also suffered from stomach diseases, enteritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. He often fainted at work and thus was unable to do heavy labor.
Mr. Guan started to practice Dafa in December 1996. He recovered from his asthma after practicing for two days and from his other illnesses within one month. Following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, he improved his moral character and no longer took advantage of the health system–covering medical expenses for relatives under his name.
His wife, Ms. Zou Shaolu, had many chronic diseases including headaches, hypertension, and coronary heart disease. She started to practice Falun Dafa in April 1996 and soon returned to good health.
Mr. Guan was arrested multiple times and was persecuted almost to the verge of death. He and his wife were forced to leave home for more than a year to avoid persecution in August 2008. Ms. Zou died in April 2014 after suffering long-term persecution.
Paraplegic Policeman Regained His Health
Heilongjiang policeman Mr. Jin Chengshan retired in 1996 after becoming paraplegic from a car accident. He was unable to take care of himself, became incontinent and developed bed sores.
Mr. Jin took up Falun Dafa the same year and recovered from his health problems. Through studying Dafa, he learned about the causal relationship between karma and suffering, and became a better person.
His wife Ms. Jiao Xiaohua saw the changes in him and also began to practice Dafa. She has been praised by relatives and friends for taking care of her husband for decades.
For refusing to renounce Dafa, the couple were arrested and their home was ransacked in March 2005. Both of them were illegally sentenced in April 2007. Mr. Jin and Ms. Jiao received five years and three years of imprisonment, respectively. Despite his appeal, the husband was taken to Hulan Prison, where he was tortured. He was twice on the verge of death and was later released on medical parole.
Entire Families Benefit from Dafa
Ms. Zhao Shouzhu, a retired teacher in Zhangjiakou City of Hebei Province, suffered hereditary hypertension, chronic pharyngitis, tonsillitis, frozen shoulder, severe hemorrhoids, athlete's foot, and so on. She also suffered from ankylosing spondylitis, a macro joint disease. Her major joints could not move at all. She sought cures but was unsuccessful. She was only 33 at the time.
She began to practice Falun Dafa when she was in despair. She finished reading the book Zhuan Falun within a day. After understanding the deeper causes of being ill and the purpose of life, she decided to cultivate herself based on the principles of Dafa. It was April 6, 1995, and she was 38.
The next day, Ms. Zhao could bend down when doing the Dafa exercises. Two weeks later, she was able to walk. She recovered from all her illnesses within two months.
Her husband was amazed at her recovery and also tried to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. As a government official for more than a decade, he did not embezzle any public money. He maintained a good work ethic and retired peacefully.
Their daughter was admitted to a well-known university and given an award as as one of the top 100 outstanding college students in the country. Because of her excellence, she was admitted to a graduate program in physics without having to take an entrance exam by the renowned Peking University.
Associate Cytology Professor's Cancer Cured
Ms. Tang Xuzhen, an octogenarian associate cytology professor at the Sichuan Medical University, suffered from fungal gastritis, hepatitis, cholecystitis, and pyelonephritis. She was also diagnosed with incurable nasopharyngeal carcinoma in March 1996.
After all treatments failed, Ms. Tang started to practice Falun Dafa in April 1996. Within three days, her nosebleed stopped and she discharged a lot of dark blood. The cancer symptoms vanished, and all her other diseases also disappeared.
Her entire family was also blessed for supporting her practice. Her husband, already emaciated from various illnesses, became healthy, and his weight returned to normal. He also recovered from his tuberculosis, hepatitis, and skin diseases.
Villager's Deformed Body Changed
According to a Minghui.org report on October 5, 2015, a villager suffered from various diseases at the age of 12. She weighed less than 80 pounds in her 20s. Her body started to deform when she was 38. Her chest was swollen, her waist expanded, and her back hunched. She was almost blind, and she lost her memory. Her joints were misaligned. She was told by the doctor that there was no hope for a cure. She wanted to end her life of misery.
A classmate introduced Falun Dafa to her and gave her a copy of Zhuan Falun on June 28, 1998. She was in awe of the profound teachings and was determined to practice it. That evening, she read almost 200 pages.
The villager’s body was cleansed the following day. She started to vomit blood and discharge smelly liquid. Half a month later, the illnesses that had plagued her for 15 years were completely gone.
Her husband was happy to see all these changes and became very supportive. He also recovered from his illnesses, such as hyperthyroidism, stomach disease, and enteritis.
Whole Family Becomes Healthy
Heilongjiang resident Ms. Sun Fengxia often passed out at the age of four because of tuberculosis. She also developed heart disease when she was older. Her illness got worse after she gave birth to two children. Her husband was planning her funeral. The children were also very weak.
After starting to practice Falun Dafa in 1997, Ms. Sun felt better as soon as she read Zhuan Falun. This encouraged her to do the exercises, and she recovered from her illnesses within a short time.
She said her family also benefited from her practice: her children's health improved as well, and her husband survived two major traffic accidents.
Falun Dafa Brought Harmony to a Broken Family
Ms. Liu Yuping is a retired manager of the Wanzhuang Petroleum Mining in Hebei Province. She suffered from heart disease, esophageal cancer, endometrial displacement, neurosis, and so on. She had spent a lot of money on medical treatment. She even tried other qigong practices, but they did not help her.
To make things worse, her husband drank heavily and often abused her, leaving her hospitalized. The couple argued for more than 10 years and kept talking about divorce. She lived in despair and thought of ending her life. Traumatized by the broken family, their son also lived in misery.
Ms. Liu later learned about Falun Dafa. She recovered from her illnesses soon after she read Zhuan Falun. Surprised by her changes, Ms. Liu's husband started to read the book too. Although he did not practice Falun Dafa, he changed and started following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. As a result, their marital relationship improved and their whole family became harmonious.
