The Experience of two Physicians

My husband and I took up the study of Christian Science about two years ago. Previous to that time, we had both been in the practice of medicine. We knew of almost all the remedies for my ailment, for we were of the eclectic school, and after trying them, we found man and man-made remedies utterly powerless to relieve my terrible suffering.

Physicians in Cincinnati and Detroit told me that if I were enough better in from three to four years to feel that I had improved just a little, I might consider myself fortunate. One of these good men said to me after I had explained my symptoms, which were purely mental, "Why, I have been wrestling with just these same terrible conditions for four years, and only now am beginning to feel that life is worth living." This was poor consolation. A few evenings after my experience with this doctor, I remembered we had not tried all known remedies, for Christian Science was unknown and untouched by us, though, about nine years ago in the city of Newport, Ky., a dear friend talked with me about the goodness and allness of God, and that Christian Science healed sin as well as sickness. So like a tired, sick child I turned to God for help and found Him truly a God of Love and Power.
