A testimony from a practitioner:
Benefits of Conversion — Good News for Diabetes Patients
Wei Cai Huang
Time really flies, it has been 5 months already. Five months ago I had diabetes; my legs were swollen, bruised and hardened. I was not mobile thus I could not work to earn my living. It was really a disaster. Time passed by really slow for me.
I was lucky to attend the Health Dharma convention of Guang Huan Mi Zong as well as the Health dharma class on December 18, 2004. My legs were no longer swollen after the class. With the approval of Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi, I joined the Converted Student Class.
I experienced dramatic changes. My diabetic index was down to 120 from 250. My diabetes was totally cured and so did all other side effects. I was not tired anymore when I walked. My career is in good flow. A thousand thanks to the Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi for blessing me and teaching me such a great cultivation method – Guang Huan Mi Zong Health Dharma!
