The first definition of medicine, according to Webster, is "the science and art dealing with the prevention, cure, or alleviation of disease." The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, in an address at Pleasant View, Concord, New Hampshire, before over two thousand members of The Mother Church in 1887, said (Miscellaneous Writings, pp. 251, 252): "Truth is the tonic for the sick. ...
