A Christian Scientists’ spiritual health care
The article “Christian Scientists lobby to add prayer to health bill” [News, Nov. 26] seems to conclude with the impression that Christian Science healing is ineffective.
Those who have never witnessed or experienced physical healing through the study of Christian Science may be persuaded to place it in the category of questionable faith healing or mere positive thinking, which it definitely is not.
When I was 12, my mother was diagnosed, treated and labeled incurable by three independent medical specialists. Our family then witnessed her complete healing solely by Christian Science treatment recommended by a neighbor.
For more than 50 years since then, I have relied solely on Christian Science to maintain my own health because of its dependable results when correctly adhered to. Because of this, I have no recorded medical history.
Some of the healings I’ve experienced through Christian Science treatment are blood poisoning, broken arm and foot, abscessed tooth, influenza, migraine, impaired eyesight, dislocated hip, heart problem and back injury. There have been a multitude of others, which proves to me and to those who have witnessed it, Christian Science offers a remarkable, Bible-based system of spiritual health care.
