On the evening of February 19th, 2011, a seminar regarding the health benefits of Falun Gong was held at the Taiwan Centre in Flushing, New York. Many local Chinese residents attended. Falun Gong practitioners Yi-wei Dai, Zhiyuan Wang, and Bin-de Yang shared their stories about the profound health improvement they experienced after practicing Falun Gong.

From Crippling Pain to Becoming Pain-Free and Healthy
Ms. Yiwei Dai is a beautiful girl from Taiwan. She has always been a top student at school. She went to the Taipei First Girls' High School and National Taiwan University; these are the best schools in Taiwan. She later obtained Master's degrees from the University of Connecticut in both biotechnology and computer engineering. However, when she was thirty years old, her wonderful life suddenly encountered a huge change.
|Ms. Yiwei Dai|
In 2005, only one month after she started to work, she was rear-ended while driving home. She suffered severe injuries and minor concussion. The doctor told her to take a month off to rest and recuperate, but after one month off, she hadn't gotten any better and more parts of her body had begun to ache. The doctor suggested: “It seems to be getting worse if you rest; you should try exercising.” Listening to the doctor's advice, she went back to work. Several months later, her health condition became worse and worse. At first, only the joints at the hip, knee, and wrist (which had been injured in the collision) hurt the most. Then all the joints and her entire body began to ache. In the end, it was even difficult for her to walk. Whenever she walked a single step, she had to rest for a minute. After she walked another step, she rested for another minute. So she quit her job and returned to Taiwan for medical treatment.
After she went back to Taiwan, she found an orthopedic surgeon of Chinese medicine, and he massaged every joint in her hand and pulled on the joints all over her body. The doctor told her: “Every joint inside your body has been dislocated, that's why you have so much pain.” “It's too late because they have become old injuries, and it's almost impossible to cure them now.”
Worse still, she developed some neurological sequelae later, and she developed a condition called fibromyalgia, which is incurable with western medicine. She lost the ability to live on her own. Her breathing, body temperature, and blood sugar levels all became disordered. She passed out very easily, and any movement of her body caused great pain. Wherever she went, she needed to take an oxygen tank with her, otherwise she might pass out at any time. One time when she was at the hospital, she woke up because of the tremendous pain, she wanted to ask the nurse to give her some morphine, but the pain was so great that she couldn't speak at all. She said: “I didn't know in the past that we needed so many cells in order to speak. Every cell in my body was suffering great pain. All my willpower and strength was used to endure the pain; I didn't even have the strength to make a sound.”
Since she wasn't cured in Taiwan, she decided to go back to the United States to rejoin her husband. Three days before she went back, she found a traditional Chinese medicine doctor who specialised in joint disease; so she wanted to give treatment another try. That doctor had remarkable medical skills; she assessed the condition of her kidney, liver, stomach, bone, and bone marrow. All the blood samples she obtained from Ms. Dai Yiwei's acupuncture points were black, indicating that all of these organs were problematic. In the end, the doctor told her: “Now, no one can save you; you should save yourself. You can try to practise Falun Gong, which has the power to heal all your diseases.”
After she went back to the States, she didn't start to learn Falun Gong right away. Later, she asked her mother to take her back to Taiwan for further medical treatment. But her mother told her that they had spent all their savings on her previous treatments, and if she wanted more treatments, they would have to borrow money to do so. Thus Ms. Dai thought she should try to practice Falun Gong.
She went to the Falun Dafa website, which recommended that all new practitioners read the book Zhuan Falun. After she finished reading Zhuan Falun within one day, she was very excited. She believed in the truth of everything explained in Zhuan Falun, and she made up her mind to practice Falun Gong. The day after she finished the book, upon waking up, she found that all her pain was gone. And it wasn't painful when she got up and walked downstairs. It was like a living in a dream, all her pain disappeared overnight.
Two days later, she still didn't feel any pain. She went to the practice site and she meditated for thirty or forty minutes with her legs in the half lotus position. She didn't experience joint dislocation, but instead felt very comfortable. Thus, she was granted the opportunity of another life after practising Falun Gong. Her health is now better than before she had the car accident.
A medical miracle of a Harvard scholar
|Harvard scholar Zhiyuan Wang|
Mr. Zhiyuan Wang was a doctor in China for dozens of years and treated many patients. Later he came to the US and worked as a researcher at Harvard Medical School. He is an expert on microsurgery. One day in 1983, he found that he suffered from a disease called "Progressive Spinal Muscular Atrophy" and visited many famous hospitals and experts. Neither Western nor Chinese medicine could cure it, and it is considered an "incurable disease" with an average life expectancy of three to five years. As a medical doctor, his training told him that there was nowhere to turn, but nevertheless, he turned to Qigong to try his luck. At first the feeling was not bad, but soon after some problems came up. His physical condition got worse and worse, and more diseases came. He suffered from duodenal ulcer, enteritis, urethra stones, and more. A massive haemorrhage of the digestive tract happened twice, in 1994 and 1997. The first time, because of the shock of blood loss, his blood pressure could hardly be detected and he almost passed away.
Thereafter, dizziness, fatigue, loss of memory, and apparent aging plagued him for many years. He always felt exhausted after a day's work and even lost the strength to speak. One day in February of 1998, a friend in China wrote to him and introduced him to Falun Gong. He was excited by what his friend told him and he started a 9-day Falun Gong lecture session in Cambridge three days later. On the first day of the seminar, his physical reaction was very noticeable. He had to go to the bathroom often and there were waves of warm energy flowing through his back, flowing through his whole body every so often. Usually he was very tired after a day's work and felt dizzy and sleepy. After listening to the lecture, however, he found his eyes were bright and his head was clear even on his way home near midnight. He felt lightness and comfort that he hadn't experienced for many years. The symptoms in his stomach disappeared the fifth day, and the discomfort of having the urethra stones stopped after that. Muscular twitching, weakness, and the other symptoms all vanished one after another. Thus his entire body recovered. His energy and physical condition was better than he'd felt in 20 years. Falun Dafa bestowed a new life on him.
Vice President of a multinational business benefits physically and mentally
|Mr. Bin-de Yang|
Mr. Bin-de Yang was the vice president of a Taiwanese corporation and in charge of its North American branch. Before practising Falun Gong, Mr. Yang had allergies, especially in April or May. He suffered from backaches and his stomach had problems too. After practising Falun Gong, he became healthy; his allergies and backache disappeared. He also lost a few extra pounds.
Mr. Yang felt the biggest impact was in his attitude toward life. From practising Falun Gong he learned that one should respect others, treasure life, look inward when facing conflicts, and compromise when dealing with others. Such understandings brought good effects to his life, his interactions with others, and his work.
Having experienced such benefits from Falun Gong, when Mr. Yang visited Taiwan, he travelled to tourist sites with other practitioners to explain the facts about Falun Gong to Chinese tourists who had been deceived by the Chinese Communist regime's propaganda. Many people thus came to know about the brutal persecution in China.
Free teaching and nine-session seminar
The audience was touched by the stories they heard and invited the practitioners to return to the Taiwan Center to teach the Falun Gong exercises the following day. Mr. Yang was awarded with a certificate.

On the evening of February 23rd, the practitioners taught the first 4 sets of Falun Gong exercises. The participants of the session felt the strong energy field. One of those in attendance, Mr. Hsie, said he benefitted from the seminar and was impressed with Mr. Yang’s sharing on respecting others and not being judgmental.
At the suggestion of those who were learning the exercises, Mr. Ming-feng Cai, Director of Taiwan Centre, agreed that from March 1st to 9th, a Falun Gong nine-session seminar would be held in Taiwan Centre from 7 pm to 9 pm each day. He hopes many more people in the community will benefit from the seminar.
