Christian Science an Effectual Remedy

I first heard of Science in 1893. I had then been subject to sick headaches for years. I did not suffer from it all the time but I was in constant fear and would have an attack once a week and sometimes oftener. I also had rheumatism, heart failure, and constipation, often using a box of pills in a single week but without relief. I had taken every known remedy, and received no permanent benefit. I never was without some material remedy until I received treatment from a Christian Science healer in Ulysses, Neb., where I was visiting in 1893. Since that time I have hardly known what it is to take anything. My eyes were also very bad. I could not see after night for weeks at a time, then they would seem to be better for a while. I tried everything I could hear of, as the fear was very great that I would lose my sight. My eyes were left in that condition by an attack of the grip in 1890. One treatment was sufficient to heal them entirely.

I did not accept the teachings of Christian Science until some two years later. I saw no one that believed it, had no Science literature, and had only heard the healer talk two evenings on the subject. In 1895 I had an attack of mountain typhoid fever in Colorado, where I was then living. I had no doctor, and no healer, and did not know how to treat myself, but I had heard the healer say, "God is All-in-all and does not want you to be sick and never intended you to be sick." So I would have no doctor, although my husband begged me to have one. I got over the fever all right, and was only in bed two days all day, when I seemed to be so weak I could not sit up. The rest of the time I ate anything I wanted and walked when I pleased, worked a little, and laid down a good share of the time. I was taken sick on the first day of September, and on the 27th day of the same month my husband had an attack of the same trouble.
