(Minghui.org) According to data from the World Health Organization, about 300 million people around the world suffer from hepatitis B, and about 80 million of them live in China.
There are several strains of the hepatitis virus that affects the liver—A, B, C, D, and E. Type B, the most common, can progress to cirrhosis or liver cancer. About 80% of liver cancer cases in China are caused by hepatitis B. While there is no treatment available to completely cure hepatitis, some people have seen their symptoms completely disappear after they began to practice Falun Dafa. Below are some examples.

The Only One of Five Siblings with Hereditary Hepatitis Still Alive
Mr. Zhang Guoqing is a retired teacher from Mancheng County, Hebei Province. Three of his four brothers died of hereditary hepatitis, while the other died of something else. Mr. Zhang was diagnosed with severe hepatitis B in 1993.
Mr. Zhang couldn’t eat much due to a bloated stomach and was emaciated. He did not have the energy to walk and was bedridden most of the time, so he ended up with many bedsores. The entire village knew that he was dying.
On the verge of death, a relative told him about Falun Dafa and brought him two books and audio lectures. He had no energy to read the books but listened to the recordings. He felt very comfortable as he listened and learned a lot of things that he hadn’t known before. As he listened day and night, he regained his appetite and could read the books. Then he sat up and was able to stand on his own. After a while, he was able to take a few steps and got some of his energy back.
All that happened in just one month. Amazed that listening to the recordings could help so much, he decided to join an exercise group.
On February 19, 1999, two days after the Chinese New Year, Mr. Zhang went to an exercise site with his family’s help. He dressed warmly but he was still very weak, and his complexion was dark. He had to hold onto a stool to watch others do the exercises. He and his family also studied the teachings with the group in the evening.
His wife came with him every day and also participated in the study sessions. Twelve days later, he participated in activities to introduce Falun Dafa to others. “Look at that old man,” said a boy who knew him well. “He was about to die, and now he is doing the Falun Dafa exercises.”
Falun Dafa has truly given him a second life. After doing the exercises for a short while, he was like a different person: his complexion was rosy and he was able to do some chores.
He has practiced Dafa for 23 years now and is in good health. Many of his former co-workers who had not seen him for many years were surprised that he is still so healthy. He told them that it was because he practices Falun Dafa.
Incurable Hepatitis Disappeared after Practicing Falun Dafa
Mr. Li Yuanhua contracted hepatitis B when he was attending a university in 1983. It was a huge physical and psychological burden.
He felt tired all the time, and the gastrointestinal discomfort made it difficult for him to digest anything he ate. When his heart skipped beats at night, he felt he was about to die and he would often sit all night instead of going back to sleep.
Mr. Li sought out different experts and even tried qigong, but there was no significant improvement. He struggled for 10 years before taking up Falun Dafa in 1994.
He recovered his health shortly after that. When he later immigrated to Australia, his hepatitis B test was negative.
Father Recovered from Liver Cirrhosis by Reciting the Falun Dafa Auspicious Phrases
A practitioner recalled that his father fell ill in the winter of 2009 and didn’t have any strength.
“My father was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver with complications including ascites. After being treated in the county hospital without any improvement, he was transferred to the cancer hospital in the city. They confirmed that he had end-stage liver cirrhosis. As the Chinese New Year was approaching, he was released for a family reunion with a drain attached to his stomach.
"During the holiday, he accidentally knocked out the tube connected to the bag, and fluid leaked all over the place. We took him back to the hospital, but after several consultations, all the doctors could do was refer him to a hospital in Beijing. There he was given some medicine and sent home.
"The medicine did not work. His ascites kept worsening and the county hospital refused to treat him any further. The doctor suggested we prepare for the worst and provide comfort care for him. He was emaciated and exhausted. He struggled with the pain and felt hopeless and helpless.
"When he first came down with the illness, I advised him to recite the auspicious phrases ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ He tried it and said that it didn’t work.
"Knowing that my father didn’t do it sincerely, I continued to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa to him. He listened and understood why reciting the phrases would be good for him. He began to sincerely recite them.
"Shortly after, his ascites disappeared and he eventually recovered. It has been 13 years, and his liver disease has never flared up again. People who know him are amazed at the healing power of Dafa.
"Four years ago, my father had a check-up. The CT scan showed that his liver was smooth, and the doctor could not believe that he had ever had cirrhosis of the liver."
Blessed for Supporting Dafa
Just like the practitioner’s father above, the daughter of another Falun Dafa practitioner also recovered from hepatitis B by supporting the practice. Below is her personal account:
“I was diagnosed with hepatitis B when I was six. Back then, our family barely had enough money for food and clothes, let alone expensive medical care. When I was 19, lab work showed my illness had gotten worse and I would have to control it with medication. But it caused severe side effects and I had to stop taking it.
After my mother began practicing Falun Dafa, I tried my best to help her print Dafa informational materials to raise awareness about the persecution.
In 2013, I became pregnant. I feared that I might pass the disease on to my child. I visited different doctors but nobody could give me a definite answer. I decided to keep the baby. When my daughter was six months old, the doctor checked her over and said she was perfectly fine. At the time, I didn’t realize that this was a blessing from Dafa—I just felt that my baby was very lucky.
In September 2021, I went to the hospital for a checkup and was surprised that I tested negative for hepatitis B. I had never thought such a miracle would happen to me and I am full of gratitude to Falun Dafa and its Master.”
