(Minghui.org) Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease for which there is no known cure. The disease causes the immune system to produce autoantibodies that attack its own cells and tissues, leading to the damage of one’s internal organs and subsequent complications.

Regardless of age, those with lupus face life-threatening conditions and will have to take medication for the rest of their lives.

Some people with lupus, however, have been lucky enough to recover from the disease after practicing Falun Dafa, a traditional Chinese spiritual discipline for mind and body. Below are their stories.

Middle-aged Woman’s Lupus Cured after Practicing Falun Dafa

A Falun Dafa practitioner wrote down her experience of how she recovered from lupus four months after practicing Falun Dafa.

I am 56 and live in a village in Qingdao City, Shandong Province. I was diagnosed with lupus and nephritis in 2008. I took medicine every day, and visited the hospital once a month. The annual medical expense alone was nearly ten thousand yuan. In four years, my family’s saving of 20 years was drained. However, my situation got worse: my blood sugar and my blood pressure both shot up; I had bowel movements seven or eight times a day; my face was terribly swollen. I was in so much pain that I wanted to end my life.

At this desperate moment, I suddenly remembered that there were Falun Dafa practitioners in my village and they told me that Falun Dafa has miraculous healing effects. I thought it might be my last chance and started to read the book Zhuan Falun. The book helped me understand the meaning of life, why people get sick, how to truly get rid of illness and how to be a good person and so on.

I read the book and did the exercises every day. My then-21-year-old son was very supportive. When my husband turned on the TV, my son would turn it off, “Please do not interfere with my mother studying the Fa.” He gave me a ride on his electric bicycle every day to my fellow practitioner’s home to do the exercises.

From the first day I started to do the exercises, I stopped taking all my medications except for a low dose of steroids. When I went to the hospital for a follow up examination three months later, I was basically cured. The doctors thought it was incredible and they had never seen such a case before. After that, I stopped taking steroids as well.

My family and relatives thought that I stopped taking medicine because of the cost. They worried that I did not want to live anymore and tried all means to persuade me to take my pills again. They even knelt down to beg me. With tears in my eyes, I explained to them, “Because of practicing Falun Dafa, I have fully recovered. I do not need to take medicine any more. I took medicine and injections for over four years, but my condition just got worse. In the past four months, I didn’t take any medicine but by practicing Falun Dafa only, I am getting better and better.”

To reassure them, I went to a bigger hospital for another examination, and all my lab results were normal. My loved ones were convinced. Everyone in my village witnessed the supernatural nature of Dafa, and many of them wanted to learn it.

Taiwanese Woman Grateful to Founder of Falun Dafa

Julie thanked Dafa Master for giving her good health

Julie is from Taiwan and currently resides in Malaysia. She was the secretary of a former Singapore trade office in Taipei. She started practicing Falun Dafa in Taipei in 1995.

Before practicing Falun Dafa, she was diagnosed with lupus erythematosus. She could not be exposed to sunshine. She has four children and her husband was very worried about her. She knew that Falun Dafa is good and the only hope was Falun Dafa.

She began doing the Falun Dafa exercises, and cultivated her character according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. After her improvement in mind nature, she quickly became healthy. The doctors were surprised to see such a miracle.

“Can Falun Dafa Save My Mother?”

A practitioner from Liaoning province shared her experience of how she recovered from lupus.

When I suffered from lupus, my body, face and feet turned black. I was too weak to get up and I stayed in bed all day.

My husband took me to a hospital twice. The medical expenses put a huge burden on our family, and yet I did not get better. The doctor couldn’t do anything and asked my husband to take me home. I was waiting to die.

My child was very young at the time. There was a lot of pressure on my family and I suffered physically and mentally.

One day, my child was playing outside our home, when an elderly Falun Dafa practitioner passed by. My child asked her, “Can Falun Dafa save my mother?”

“It has helped many people become healthy,” she told my child. She said that if I wanted to practice it, she would be happy to teach me.

I was interested and she came to my home every day. We studied the Dafa books together. After a short period of time, I was able to get out of bed. She then taught me the exercises. Master Li cleansed my body and my health improved day by day.

I was soon able to do household chores and was completely healthy. My husband and child were extremely happy. I now work in a supermarket to help ease our financial burden.

Lupus Cured in Three Days

A practitioner from Hulunbuir City, Inner Mongolia shared how her relative recovered from lupus by reciting the phrases “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good.”

In January 2015, my eldest sister called to tell me that her daughter’s sister-in-law, who lives in Haikou City, Hainan Province, was diagnosed with lupus several days after giving birth to her baby.

The new mother was in so much pain that she could not eat, sleep, sit or lie down comfortably. Red patches appeared on her body, and she could not take care of her baby. Other relatives took the baby home.

The whole family was in despair. Not only were they faced with huge medical expenses, but even if she were hospitalized, no one could guarantee that she would be cured.

I was concerned about my niece’s sister-in-law. I called my niece and told her about the healing effects of the Dafa phrases. I urged her to share it with her sister-in-law and it will help the latter if all family members recited the phrases sincerely.

Three days later, my sister called me to say that my niece’s sister-in-law has recovered and the pain is gone. “It’s incredible. Falun Dafa is really great!” she exclaimed.

My niece’s sister-in-law said with tears in her eyes, “This is miraculous! I will never forget that it was Master Li who saved my life!”
