A few years ago I knew nothing of Christian Science...

A few years ago I knew nothing of Christian Science except the name. At the time, I was very ill and under the care of a physician, who held out the little comforting prospect of two years of careful treatment along the lines that he would prescribe, strictest diet, etc., if I hoped to regain my health. I had suffered from congestion of the lungs six times in ten years, and the law of a return of this ailment every winter was held over me.

Aware of my wife's earnest interest in Christian Science and her conviction that it was the remedy for every ill and could also heal me, I became interested little by little, especially after she told me it required no faith on my part, an absolute refraining from taking any medicine or using remedial agents of any kind being the only condition imposed; and of my own free will I decided to try what Christian Science treatment could do for me. I thought that if it did no good, at any rate it could do no harm, and knowing that my wife had been successful in other cases, I asked her to help me. I do not know how the work was done, but I do know that I was a well man inside of three-months, eating with relish everything set before me, and with a normal appetite for every meal. My friends consider it little less than a miracle, as they had been accustomed to look upon me as a chronic invalid. I have also gained in flesh since my healing. The physical freedom is, however, nothing compared to the release from fear, of which I was a victim. My nervousness was extreme, causing suffering not only to myself but to every one around me. That has all gone, and I can now always see the sun behind the clouds, whereas before I saw the cloud behind the sun in every instance. Now I am of a cheerful disposition, and no longer look at the dark side of everything.
