A science of disease -- 500,000 people die of coronary
artery disease. One million Western allopathic medicine is created and
developed by people like you and me. It is based on what we can see and touch.
Therefore, a patient has to be sick enough to be diagnosed and treated. If biochemical
means, imaging techniques, or pathological methods cannot detect any abnormality,
most Western doctors have little to suggest regarding treatment. They watch and
wait. The quality of medical care today is far below our expectations. For example,
every year in the United States
400,000 to suffer an acute myocardial infarction and of these, 10-15% will die
within several days while another 10-15% will die within one year. There are
170,000 new cases of lung cancer diagnosed each year in the United
States, with about 150,000 deaths occurring
annually; 80-90% of all lung cancers occur among smokers.
A science of health -- Chinese medicine can do better in
diagnosing and treating illnesses at their early stages if we follow the
traditional principles. Chinese medicine is based on a system we cannot see, an energetic network
connecting all parts of the body, called meridians. It was a complete and
sophisticated system at the very beginning of its recorded existence and has
not been changed in the last 3,000 years. The cost of treatment of traditional
Chinese medicine is substantially lower than that of Western allopathic
medicine, with fewer side effects and often greater effectiveness. But
ultimately, patients have to take responsibility for a healthier lifestyle.
Chinese medicine particularly tells people that the Heart (the organ that is believed
to house the mind) is an emperor, and if the emperor is not wise, it jeopardizes
the other 12 organs. And to live a long and healthy life, you have to have "a
clean heart and few desires."
A science of life -- Chinese medicine is from a prehistoric
culture, and the meridians are a system existing in another dimension of our
body. The ultimate purpose of our lives is to go back to our original, true
selves. Therefore, getting rid of our attachments to this earthly world is the
only way to upgrade our lives. The cultivation of our Xinxing (mind nature and
moral character) is the most important way to uplift our lives. The spirit and body
are a unified system. When Xinxing improves, energy potency increases and the
body becomes healthier. When a practitioner follows the right teaching,
miracles can happen. Every activity conducted by Falun Dafa is free of charge.
Instructions, seminars, workshops, group practices, study groups--all are free.
The complete text of every Falun Dafa book (including the main book, Zhuan Falun)
and various audio and video clips can be viewed and downloaded from the
Internet at no cost. Volunteers conduct all activities. By practicing Falun
Dafa, people are not approaching illness and death; they are approaching their
original, Cosmic home. (Written by Dr. Jingduan Yang with John Nania)
