(Minghui.org) “White lung” is a medical term for moderate or severe pneumonia that appears as a large white area of the lungs on X-ray or CT scan. “White lung” manifests as pulmonary fibrosis, which is a worldwide medical problem and is irreversible. The mortality rate of the disease is higher than certain cancers.
There is no cure for pulmonary fibrosis, and available drugs can only help to slow down the progression of the disease. When pulmonary fibrosis progresses to a certain stage, respiratory failure will occur and the patient’s life is endangered.
In the recent surge of COVID cases in China, a large number of patients were found to have “white lungs.” Medical experts explained that the virus infection in the lung caused fibrosis and hypoxemia (below-normal level of oxygen in blood). The symptoms didn’t only appear in elderly patients, but also patients in their 30s or 40s. Many of the “white lung” patients have died.
However, some patients with severe pneumonia (regardless of whether it was induced by COVID) were lucky enough to regain health after either practicing Falun Dafa or sincerely reciting the phrases “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is an ancient body-mind discipline based on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Below are several stories of how pneumonia patients recovered.
(Continued from Part 1.)
Escape Death from Bilateral Pulmonary Fibrosis
I began practicing Falun Dafa in April 1996, and I am in my 90s. In May 2003, I developed a cough that lasted over two months. In mid-July that year, when my daughter came for a visit, I suddenly developed a high fever of 39°C (102.2°F). I had generalized tremors and passed out.
I was sent to the local Chinese medicine hospital. The next day, my fever climbed up to 40°C (104°F). I was transferred to a bigger hospital. The CT scan showed that I had pulmonary fibrosis in both lungs. I was also diagnosed with lobar pneumonia and found to have multiple organ failure.
The doctors said my symptoms were incurable and I was kept in the hospital for comfort measures only. As a Falun Dafa practitioner, I wasn’t afraid and I knew Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) would protect me. Five days later, I woke up. The doctors were all dumbfounded! I knew it was Dafa’s Master who purified my body, and granted me a second chance.
Doctor Amazed at the Recovery of a Young Child from Severe Pneumonia
During the New Year Holiday in 2013, my younger brother’s four-year-old grandson developed a high fever of 39°C (102.2°F). He was diagnosed with severe pneumonia, but the treatment didn’t have any improvement. The child was vomiting blood, and he was sent to the ICU and issued a critical illness notice. I began reciting to him the auspicious phrases “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” He stopped vomiting blood shortly after.
The boy was later transferred to the provincial hospital, which had ventilators for children. The surgeon diagnosed him with severe pneumonia, with fluid accumulation in the lungs and pneumothorax. The surgeon punched a small hole into his chest, inserted a tube to allow fluid to flow out, and then used a large syringe to pump the air out. But during the evening checkup, his condition further deteriorated.
My brother updated me on his grandson’s condition. I urged him to recite the phrases for the boy. That evening, the whole family, including me, recited the auspicious phrases non-stop.
The next day, before the surgeon performed the planned surgery on the child, he was surprised to find through X-ray that the boy had no fluid accumulation or pneumothorax anymore. The surgeon exclaimed that a case like this had never happened before in his career. He was totally amazed!
The child was discharged in two days, and everyone was deeply grateful to Dafa and Master for saving his life.
Dafa Saves Patient Who Lost 50% of Lung Function
Yinju is a Falun Dafa practitioner. Her brother developed acute pneumonia in the spring of 2018. He was fatigued and later developed a high fever. He went to the county hospital and had an X-ray, but the doctor said his film looked alright.
The next day, his symptoms worsened. He had shortness of breath, and felt like he was suffocating. When he had another X-ray, it showed that his lung was 30% “white lung.” He was hospitalized immediately, and later transferred to the infectious disease hospital. By then, his lungs had become 50% “white.” The doctor gave him oxygen and the lab results showed that he was infected with several bacteria strains.
The doctor said that he’d previously encountered two such cases, but neither patient made it. There was no better regimen for such an illness. But the basic treatment soon cost Yinju’s brother over 100,000 yuan.
When Yinju visited her brother, he was very weak, curled up in bed like a baby. He was on maximum level of oxygen but was still short of breath.
Yinju urged her brother to learn Falun Dafa. She also told him about many cases of people recovering from serious illnesses by practicing Falun Dafa. She told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” when he could.
After he received medicine one night, Yinju’s brother suddenly felt suffocated. When he was about to pass out, he remembered the auspicious phrases, and asked Dafa’s Master to save him. He felt comfortable and relaxed right away. From that day on, his condition improved gradually and he continued reciting the phrases. Three days later, he was discharged. The doctors were stunned by such a dramatic turnaround.
After he returned home, Yinju’s brother coughed out a large amount of thick and dark sputum daily. His lungs were normal when he had a checkup one month later. He was back to work after a few months. His friends and family witnessed the supernatural power of Falun Dafa.
Blessed for the Support of Dafa
I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. My husband does not practice but he supports me. He is retired and 68 years old. He often distributes Dafa truth-clarification materials with me.
In the fall of 2018, my husband developed a fever and cough. The doctor diagnosed him with severe pneumonia and respiratory failure.
He was hospitalized at the provincial hospital but after several days his symptoms worsened, with severe shortness of breath. The chief of the department of Thoracic Surgery checked on my husband every day and adjusted his medicines as needed. After 22 days, the chief said that he had tried every possible medication on my husband and that there wasn’t much he could do to make things better. He suggested my husband be discharged and recuperate at home.
By then, my husband could not eat anymore. He could only have a sip or two of rice soup, and still had severe shortness of breath. After some thought, we decided to take him back to the local hospital. Then he began to have stomach pain and it turned out to be a kidney stone. He was too weak to get treatment and he was discharged again for comfort care.
Upon returning home, my husband was in and out of consciousness. I told him that there was no more medical treatment available to help him. “Let us ask Dafa’s Master to save you. Do you want to listen to Master’s Fa lecture series?” He agreed.
When he listened to the Fa lectures, my husband dozed on and off. But three days later, he no longer had pain, and his kidney stone was gone! He also had his appetite back and wanted rice soup. Two weeks later, he was able to sit up and breathe on his own. He no longer needed oxygen. Several days later, he was able to go to the bathroom on his own. And one month later, he was able to take a walk outside!
My entire family and my friends witnessed the wonder of Dafa. My husband cannot stop telling others it was Dafa’s Master who saved him. We are all deeply grateful for Master’s saving grace!
