(Minghui.org) My husband, who is 75 years old, was in poor health, and often sick. He began reading the book Zhuan Falun in January 2019, and recently became a true practitioner. He has gone through several tribulations.

My son and I are both doctors. We felt powerless to help my husband, because he was allergic to most medications.

His most challenging health concern was a heart condition. His heart rate was low, and he became dizzy when it dropped below 50 beats per minute. We first treated him with drugs, which soon became ineffective. We took him to other hospitals to see specialists, but none could help him. We tried traditional Chinese medicine which also did not help. We later relied on acupuncture at home to relieve his symptoms.

I felt helpless, so all I could do was continue to urge him to cultivate Falun Dafa.

He picked up Zhuan Falun to read on his own one day in January 2019. I later asked if he wanted to do the exercises with me. We both started getting up at 3:30 a.m. daily to do the five exercises. We have been doing this for more than a year.

One day he had chest pain and was dizzy. His limbs were cold, his face pale, and he could not move. I measured his heart beat, which was only 44, so I was worried. I applied acupuncture to him. Then I sensed my mistake. I picked up Master's picture and asked Master for help.

My husband also asked for Master's help. He was gradually able to move and felt better. He recovered within a few days. His heart condition never reoccurred again.

He had a stomachache one day in February 2020. He was bloated, and full of gas. The more he did the exercises the more bloated he was. He needed to go to the restroom and discharge gas five to six times a day. Sometimes his belly became full when he meditated. He asked Master for help, and was able to persist until finished. His bowel movements were irregular for almost a month. Everything was fine after he discharged all the gas in the stomach.

He saw a big black creature approaching him one night. He rejected it with this thought, “I am Master Li’s disciple, a Dafa practitioner.” The creature disappeared immediately. He acknowledged that he was a Dafa disciple from then on, and began sending forth righteous thoughts with me.

He has experienced karma elimination many times, and survived. I asked him how he felt at the time. He said it was okay. He knew from the Fa that Master was helping him eliminate the karma and purifying his body.

We studied Teacher’s Fa together:

“Those ordeals and the suffering, no matter how great or harsh you find them to be, are good things, because they take place solely on account of your cultivation. A person can eliminate karma and shed human attachments when he goes through ordeals, and through ordeals he can improve.” (“Fa teaching at the 2008 New York conference,” Collected Fa Teaching, Vol. VIII)

I also copied some paragraphs from Master's lectures for him to read and memorize.
