News of Healing


The healings we publish are verified by people who can vouch for the testifier or who know of the healing. Examples of Christian healing from individuals and families around the world have been published in the Christian Science periodicals for well over a century.

The most recently-published testimonies are at the top.

Learning from a high school healing

When I was in high school, I was a member of the basketball team. One year, right before a regional tournament, I had a pretty severe cold that made it difficult for me to walk from class to class, let alone play basketball.

Allergy to cats healed

Years ago I had a girlfriend, who had two delightful cats. I say “delightful,” but my physical reaction to them was anything but pleasant, as I had a very strong allergic reaction any time I was in the same room as the cats.

Peace—instead of a ‘disaster scenario’

Last fall my husband went on a two-week wilderness trip to an area in Alaska, where there were no towns, roads, people, or cellphones. He and a friend were dropped on a river by a small plane, with only their boat and packs to negotiate 140 miles downstream.

Family harmony restored

I recall about three years ago when my brother and I used to work at the same company. He and I share a very good relationship, so it was not uncommon for me to stay a few minutes longer to visit with him at the end of my shift.

Healings over the holidays

The run-up to Christmas had always been a challenging time for me, as my husband and I usually have several family members staying with us and we host the Christmas celebrations for our extended family.   I love hosting, and having a house full of family is a joy, but in the past I’d found it quite tiring to handle all the necessary planning, decorating, shopping, preparation, and cooking.

Resentment gone, sore throat healed

A number of years ago, when I was staying with my father, who lived abroad, I started experiencing discomfort when swallowing any type of nourishment. At first I thought it would get better on its own, but to my dismay it got worse.

Our spiritual sense and healing

A few years ago, while I was still in college, my cousin with whom I lived suddenly lost his job. As he could not continue to pay the rent, he decided to go and live with his family-in-law until the situation stabilized.

Love dissolves anger, brings healing

When my daughter was a sophomore in high school, she went waterskiing with friends from school. When she got home, she said she had swallowed a lot of lake water and thought she had something stuck in her throat, which was starting to swell.

Healings from my childhood

My first Christian Science healing happened when I was five years old, after my mother was introduced to Christian Science.   I’d had a boil on my leg and had been taken to the hospital.

A husband’s love—and my healing

During a marathon of Saturday lectures I gave over a six-hour period as a Christian Science lecturer, I faced some pretty noisy competition from an organization nearby playing loud music. Although there was amplification, I still needed to project my voice strongly to be heard.
