For many years I suffered great pain after eating, without knowing what it was that ailed me. My mother was a victim of the same complaint as long as I can remember, and I supposed that it was hereditary and quite natural for me to have it.

One named it dyspepsia, another called it indigestion, while a third was sure it was neuralgia of the stomach. After I had been trying to live for some time on the not very nourishing diet of bran and milk or water, my wife suggested that I take Christian Science treatment.

I had very little faith in it and said so, but she persuaded me, saying it wouldn't hurt even if it did no good. After dark one evening, I went to a practitioner who told me that food couldn't hurt me, and that it wasn't necessary to starve.
