Until a few years ago I was afflicted with a chronic bowel trouble. My father, who lived until I was seventeen years old and who was an unusually successful physician, could not permanently help the condition; in fact he told me, as have several physicians since, that it was something which drugs cannot cure. For nearly thirty-two years I was a victim to this disorder, which seemed so much a part of my life that I did not worry about it, although I could not possess the general health of those who were normal in this respect.

I took up the study of Christian Science, but not for physical healing; it appealed to me as the truth. I however decided to have treatment, although I did not expect to be healed, not having grasped the Principle of the healing power and being quite satisfied with Science as a religion only. Faith, therefore, was not a factor in my subsequent healing, but I knew drugs could not heal me. When I was completely healed in one week's treatment by a Christian Science practitioner, I was as surprised as I was grateful. It was the beginning of a new physical life for me, as automatically every other organ and function of the body became normal; it was more than this, however,—it was the beginning of a spiritual life. The spiritual healing received through the study of Christian Science is the greatest thing which has ever come into my experience.
