This year was the first year in 31 years that I have not been to the emergency room- Victoria Woodward, Oceanside, CA
Victoria and Luke, at Glen Ivy, March 2000
Here is my story. . I have been sick for most of my 52 years on earth.
The last 27 years has seen back surgery, two brain surgeries, a
hysterectomy, reconstructive surgery on my face and eye, hand and foot
surgeries. I have been diagnosed with an L5 pushing into my spinal column,
degenerating disc in the middle of my back, fybromyalgia, asthma, sleep
apnea, high blood pressure and assorted little annoyances. In May of 1999 I
hit my low point when our last grandchild was born. I was using oxygen with
my bi-pap machine, taking three inhalers for my asthma, ansids for the pain,
couldn't get my blood pressure under control with meds, and feeling like
death warmed over. I had a hard time walking form the hotel room to the car
to get to my daughter's house. I could barely hold the 9 LB. baby. My
acupuncturist, who had helped me tremendously by then believe it or not,
encouraged me to take Tai Chi to help build my endurance. Dr. Tsai
acupuncturist) had already cut my emergency room visits from 4 or 5 a year
down to 1 a year.
My Tai Chi teacher, Regina Gill, told me about the "101 Miracles" and I read
the book. My life started to change from that day on. I have read the book
four times. For the first time in my entire life I felt I could be cured.
I ordered the tapes and started to practice. In August Regina held a
workshop and I took the day long program. I improved so much my daughter
took my book home with her to use. I have steadily improved since then.
This year was the first year in 31 years that I have not been to the
emergency room. I know I will be cured within two years. I want to thank
Dr. Tsai for encouraging me, for Regina for teaching me, and for Luke and
Frank for bringing the wonderful practice to the United States and sharing
with all of us. May loving Chi surround all of you.
