(Minghui.org) I had meningitis when I was nine years old and I suffered from the aftereffects for years. Sometimes I had severe headaches and nausea. Sometimes I was in so much pain that I wanted to end my life.

Right after the 1999 Chinese New Year, my family moved from our hometown for work. At that time, my son needed money for tuition and I needed to take medicine. My husband’s income was barely enough to support our family. Perhaps because I was under so much stress and pressure, compounded with moving to a different climate, my condition flared up again.

My husband had to take days off from work to take care of our child and me. His boss’s wife told my husband, “Your wife should try practicing Falun Dafa. It teaches people how to be kind and honest, and many people have had their illnesses resolved after they began practicing.” As soon as my husband heard that there was a way to help me for free, he got a copy of Zhuan Falun. He brought it home and said, “Read this book. My boss’ wife highly recommended it. She said it would help your condition without taking any medicine.”

Because of the CCP’s atheistic propaganda, I didn’t believe him. I said, “Don’t talk nonsense. How can reading a book help me?!” After IV treatments for four days, my headaches and nausea returned. The IV site kept bleeding and I still felt very sick. I remembered what my husband said about Falun Dafa and decided to give it a try.

As soon as I opened the book, I saw Master’s photo and thought that he looked so familiar. I felt as though I already knew him, almost like a long-lost relative. My tears began to flow. I started reading the table of contents: “Genuinely Guiding People Toward High Levels,” “Zhen-Shan-Ren is the Sole Criterion to Discern Good and Bad People” (Zhuan Falun). I thought this book was about genuinely raising one's moral standards. I started reading.

As I kept reading Zhuan Falun, my thoughts became clear. I didn’t feel sick and I even felt very comfortable. I told my husband, “I don’t need those medicines. Take them back to the clinic.” My husband didn’t want to. He said, “We paid for them. You need to take them.” I said, “My condition is resolved. I don’t need them anymore. I want to study the Fa.”

The significant health benefits and the principles that guide people to be good have attracted many people who have suffered from diseases and are eager to improve their moral standards. In the beginning, we started doing the Falun Dafa exercises in a yard in our township. In less than two months, the number of people practicing Falun Dafa increased dramatically and the space became overcrowded, so we moved our practice site to a school stadium.
