Five years ago I was taken with heart trouble

Five years ago I was taken with heart trouble. I employed one of the best doctors in the country and he said that I never would be well any more, but he could patch me up if I would quit work. To mortal sense I grew steadily worse, until this winter I could not do anything. I tried two more doctors who could only give relief. My rest was broken at night, after meals I had to walk in the open air, my feet and ankles were swollen, and I was not able to lace up shoes. A friend hearing of my case, recommended Christian Science treatment. I promised her I would go to the nearest practitioner, the next week, but not thinking that it could do me any good. I had, however, faith enough to go, and after I had been up there the second time, the practitioner told me if I had any work to do, to go home and go at it. The doctors had told me before I must not work. I went to chopping wood, work I had not been able to do for two years. That was six or seven weeks ago when I began treatment. I have been working every day since at all kinds of heavy ranch work, and feel better than I have for six years. I am cured, sound, and well, thanks to God, to Christian Science, and to my practitioner. — T. H. Card, Lemoore, Cal.
