(Minghui.org) Myocarditis is a localized or diffuse lesion in the myocardium (muscles of the heart), mostly caused by viral infection. Sufferers of the condition often show symptoms such as chest pain, chest tightness, shortness of breath, palpitations, and fainting. Complications range from severe arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) and cardiac insufficiency to sudden death.
In the last few years of the pandemic, some people who got infected with COVID also developed myocarditis, especially young and middle-aged people.
While many myocarditis patients failed to recover despite hospital treatments, some regained health by practicing Falun Dafa or sincerely reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Below are some of such stories.
(Continued from Part 1)
A Dying Myocarditis Patient Saved
I live in Shanghai. I was in my late 30s when I started to practice Falun Dafa in March 1999. Back then, I had multiple health problems. I had viral myocarditis, severe hypoxia (low levels of oxygen in one’s body tissues), and anemia.
My mother and sister took care of me daily, and I was sent to the hospital for emergency rescue twice. Due to severe insomnia, I could sleep only 2-3 hours every night even with medication. On top of everything, I also had stomach issues and a chronic pelvic infection that required frequent IV treatments. I lived like a walking dead. I didn’t know when this hard life would end.
There was a store on the first floor of our residential building. Seeing that I was so sick and emaciated with pale skin, the owner introduced Falun Dafa to me.
She told me several stories of people regaining health after practicing Falun Dafa, including a middle school teacher who required total care after suffering a stroke, and another young fellow who was home-bound due to severe heart disease.
I was skeptical, but her kindness moved my heart, and I decided to give it a try. I went to their exercise site and learned the exercises. That night, I felt very drowsy, and I had the best sleep for the first time in a long while. From then on, I no longer needed medication to sleep.
I bought Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa, several days later. Even though I had very limited education and didn’t recognise some of the characters, I thought I would read as much as I could. I was truly impressed with the principles taught in the book on how to be a good person.
After about a month, my body felt light, my energy increased, and the symptoms of myocarditis were gone! I have not been to a hospital or taken any medication since then. What a wonderful feeling to be illness free!
Master saved me from the brink of death, and it was Dafa that brought me back to life and also allowed my friends, family, and neighbors to witness the wonders of Dafa.
Sincerely Reciting Auspicious Phrases, Myocarditis Cured
My friend Zhang Jian is a sixty-eight year-old retiree. He contracted the viral myocarditis a few years ago, and later also suffered a stroke. Besides the symptoms of myocarditis, including palpitations, fatigue, and shortness of breath, he had facial droop and half of his body suffered numbness, which affected his speech and eating.
The two illnesses caused a vicious circle. The stroke limited his range of movement and caused him to become grumpy. When he lost his temper, he suffered tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), which further worsened his myocarditis symptoms.
To seek a cure, Zhang went to the leading cardiology and brain hospitals in Beijing. He also searched folk remedies, but all to no avail. He felt helpless and hopeless.
Upon hearing about his situation, I urged him to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” as it would help him. He began to recite the phrases over and over, and his change was noticeable day by day. Eventually, he completely recovered.
Practicing Falun Dafa Saved Me from the Brink of Death
I live in a small town in Hubei Province. I was diagnosed with viral myocarditis in 1994. I had chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, and also generalised swelling. The chest pain was so excruciating that I rolled in bed and tore the sheet into pieces when the pain attacked me. I did not see hope in life.
In the summer of 1996, I remembered that my husband had urged me many times to practice Falun Dafa. He said it kept people fit and healthy. Since my life was reaching the end, I felt I might as well give it a try. I told my husband that I wanted to learn Falun Dafa. He was so delighted, “Great, let us start now.”
I began studying the teachings and learning the exercises. Gradually my symptoms of viral myocarditis disappeared and my energy returned. I later began to run a small business to make a living. I have not been ill since I began practicing Falun Dafa!
Recovering from Myocarditis the Same Day I Took Up Falun Dafa
Ms. Sun Fengqin, 70, is a former accountant from a textile machine factory in Cangzhou City, Hebei Province. Before practicing Falun Dafa, she was a frequent flyer to the hospital. Her severe myocarditis made her tachycardic and irritable, she got sick often when the winter came, she could not do simple chores at home, and she also suffered generalised pain.
After she began practicing Falun Dafa in October 1995, her energy returned the very day she learned the exercise. She could ride her bike to watch the Dafa lecture videos six miles away. If people did not see that with their own eyes, no one would have believed her fast recovery.
Severe Myocarditis Disappeared After Attending Master’s Lecture Series
Ms. Li Mingfang, a textile machinery factory worker in Hebei Province, developed severe myocarditis in 1992, when she was 21 years old. Although her family was struggling to make ends meet, they saved money to send her to the hospital again and again, but to no avail.
The doctor stated that the symptoms could only be relieved, not cured; even if she married in the future, she might not able to bear children. She lost her job due to her illness. Her family felt hopeless and miserable.
A friend of hers introduced her to Falun Dafa and told her that practicing it keeps people fit and healthy. She agreed to give it a try. Master Li Hongzhi happened to be giving Fa lectures in Dalian City, Liaoning Province. Even though she missed the first three days of the lecture series, she attended the remaining classes for the next six days. When she returned home, she was like a new person, illness free.
She got married and had a baby girl in 1997. Everyone in her family witnessed the wonder of Dafa, and they are all deeply grateful for Dafa.
Myocarditis Gone after Taking a Glance at Falun Dafa Book
I am a retiree from a forestry farm and I am sixty-nine years old. I got all sorts of illnesses when I was in my 40s, including myocarditis, bulging disc of the back, and rheumatoid arthritis.
The myocarditis tormented me the most. My heart pounded so hard as if it was about to jump out. Sometimes it woke me up when I was asleep.
I later noticed a group of people doing some qigong exercises. I did not ask since I was not interested. One day I saw some of them meditating. I asked what they were doing. A retired math teacher told me that they were practicing Falun Dafa. He handed me a book Zhuan Falun.I opened it up and saw the section “Genuinely Guiding People Toward High Levels.”
At that very moment, I felt a warm current coming down from my head and through my whole body. I was shock and had a very firm thought: “My illness is cured!”
I blurted out, “How can your book cure diseases?” The teacher said with a smile, “You have a predestined relationship with Dafa. Read this book first today and do the exercises with me tomorrow morning.”
I then took up the Falun Dafa practice. Not only did I change my bad habits of smoking and gambling, but my hot-temper was also gone and I got along with my neighbors. When my wife saw the change in me, she also entered Dafa practice.
