[Original testimony in German]

With grateful heart I wish to testify to my healing through Science. Twice I had the grippe in such a light form that I overcame the trouble myself without help. Some time later severe pains in the abdomen set in, and continued for so many weeks that I decided to ask a Christian Science practitioner for help. The pains soon disappeared, but my body was greatly swollen and I suspected there was a growth. Should I go to a doctor? No, I did not want to do that; but over and over again came the thought, Perhaps he can help you—but then again I faced the fear of an operation.

It is very easy to understand that in this condition—wavering between Truth and error—I suffered greatly mentally. This increased to such an extent that I could no longer grasp a clear thought even when reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Then the specter of heredity tried to present itself, for some of my forefathers had died of dropsy. In this condition I was advised by the practitioner to change to another practitioner; and this I did. Soon I was more peaceful again, my body no longer causing me such great discomfort. On the other hand, different acute illnesses set in which weakened me greatly.
