(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner residing in one of China’s rural areas, who began to cultivate in 1997. I have witnessed the extraordinary power of Dafa. I wish to share my daughter-in-law's miraculous recovery from psoriasis. It is a testament to the amazing health benefits of Dafa and exposes the lies spread by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to vilify the practice.
My son called me in April 2010 and asked if I could take care of his wife while he was away from home. A red patch had developed on my daughter-in-law’s leg when I went to my son’s house. She had taken and was applying medication but did not seem to get better. Her condition worsened.
I said to her, “Psoriasis is known to be difficult to treat, and will recur many years later even if one had recovered from it. You thought the ailment was treated in the past, yet you again are suffering from it. Why don’t you learn Falun Dafa?” She shook her head and told me she was afraid her condition would become more severe. I did not push her, as I thought she was not destined to be a practitioner yet.
My son called home, requesting to send her to the hospital for treatment. I took her to a big local hospital. However, instead of getting better, the patches spread all over her body. Left with no choice, my son returned home to take her to a major hospital in Shenyang City that specializes in treating skin diseases. But, the more treatments she went through, the worse she got. We then took her to a hospital in another province and even tried an unorthodox method that was advertised. Nothing worked and the condition worsened. My daughter-in-law took many types of medication. All of them worked at first, but then her condition took a turn for the worse.
Her skin disease deteriorated in 2011. She had itchy patches all over her body and was not able to wear any clothing. In the end she said to me, “Mother, I don’t want to go for any more treatments. I will practice Falun Dafa.” I was not surprised, as my family had benefited from my practicing it.
Getting Serious about Practicing Falun Dafa
My son and daughter read the teachings with me when they were young and did the exercises. They knew that Dafa and Master are good. All these years, when I went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Dafa or spoke to people about the persecution, my husband and children supported me. Besides, they suffered tremendous mental pressure during the persecution as well. As my daughter-in-law agreed to marry into our family, she was respectful towards Master. Every time she returned home from selling things at the market, she would buy delicious food and offer them to Master first before burning incense. All of my children pay respect to Master on the first of the Chinese New Year every year.
My daughter-in-law is a kind and simple woman. I said, “Why don’t you read the teachings then. Don’t think of your illness. Just keep your mind empty and read the Dafa books.
“If you hold various attachments and come to gain supernormal abilities, have your illnesses cured, listen to some theories, or come with some ill intentions, that will not work at all.” (Lecture One, Zhuan Falun)
Eliminating Karma – Shedding Diseased Skin
Thus, my daughter-in-law began to study the Fa. Fellow practitioners sent righteous thoughts and studied the Fa with her. Master adjusted her body. Her body started to shed skin and water like the bark of an old tree. She lay in bed when she could not wear any clothes. Her temperature went up and her whole body was swollen. Her chest and back were hot to the touch. I encouraged her, “Study the Fa more, Master is eliminating your karma, you must have faith in Dafa.” I sent righteous thoughts with her on the hour. She soon fell asleep. When she woke up, she read the teachings. She was strong and by the third day, her body did not feel as hot.
When my son returned home, he could not bear to see his wife suffering. I asked him, “Why are you upset, your wife wanted to practice Falun Dafa, don’t you have confidence in her decision? “ He answered no. I said, “Do you doubt Dafa or your wife?” He said, “Can she practice Falun Dafa?” I replied, “You have to ask her whether she believes in Dafa. If she doesn’t, you have to take her elsewhere for treatments.” My son returned to his wife’s room. A while later, I went in and sat in front of my daughter-in-law. I asked her, “My son thinks you are not fit to practice Falun Dafa. Let me ask you, do you have faith?” She answered firmly, “Yes, I have confidence in Dafa.” I said, “That will do! Gods and Buddhas see one’s heart. They respect you when you are convinced about your decision. Master will take care of you.”
The mighty power of Dafa manifested as a result of my daughter-in-law’s pure thought. On the fourth morning, she got out of bed and discovered that the skin on her chest and back was peeling. She saw new growth and her fever had subsided. On the fifth day, the skin on her bottom and thighs began to peel and unblemished skin appeared. The swelling on her body was gone.
My daughter-in-law recovered from psoriasis, a most stubborn ailment, after practicing Falun Dafa for two weeks! She shed a layer of skin from head to toe. Now her skin is smooth and delicate and you cannot tell that she suffered from a skin disease in the past. Once again, my family witnessed the miraculous power of Falun Dafa.
This incident caused a sensation in the whole village. Neighbors said Falun Dafa is extraordinary and some began to learn it. Our family is grateful to Master and thanks him for his compassion. I hope people realize how precious Dafa is after reading my account. Remember that Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. Don’t believe in the evil Party’s propaganda.
