The thought has come to me of late that for all the blessings received since I came into Christian Science, I have not been truly grateful. It is now about four years since I decided to try Christian Science for various physical ills. When I was told by the practitioner not to take any medicine, but to read Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I wondered how I could possibly get on without the material remedies which I was in the habit of using. I was, however, healed of a chronic bowel disorder, also of liver trouble, overaction of other organs, and an internal growth for which I had undergone an operation without getting any relief. When told by the doctors (who tried their best to help me) that a second operation would be necessary, I decided to get on as best I could rather than submit to it. I became a slave to laws of hygiene and medicine.

I had been considered very delicate from childhood, never strong enough to do much, and the coming of winter always filled me with dread because of the tendency to take cold. The last four years I have not taken any medicine, and am now stronger and in better health than at any time before that. For the physical help I am very thankful, but what means more to me than tongue can tell is the spiritual understanding I have gained in reading and studying Science and Health, which is indeed a "Key to the Scriptures." The Bible, which was always a closed book to me, I can now read and understand—in part at least—its teachings.
