When told by a recognized medical authority that I could expect no help from medicine and must be prepared to pass on any day, I turned to Christian Science as a last resort. I knew nothing about it, but thought that if it could not help me, it certainly could not hurt me; and so, having no real expectation of being helped, I was considerably surprised to be restored to health and activity within a very few months. My trouble had been diagnosed as muscular weakness of the heart, and it had been considered dangerous for a number of years. The nationally known heart specialist whom I last consulted told me that I must be resigned to a life of quiet, with no excitement whatsoever; for, he said, the latter would at once prove fatal. However, a few years after my healing I entered the United States Army, passed the numerous physical examinations required in the service, and spent almost a year overseas on active duty in the line. At no time during my army experience was my heart's action even questioned by the medical corps examiners.

Since that first healing several other troubles, such as lumbago, indigestion, and colds, have yielded to Christian Science treatment; and the tobacco habit, which I had unsuccessfully tried to break a good many times before coming into Science, has, with the aid of a practitioner, been overcome. It goes without saying that I am grateful for these healings; but I am more grateful, through the study of the writings of Mary Baker Eddy and class instruction, to have learned something about God, the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, loving creator, and His spiritual and perfect creation. The first healing, great as it is in my consciousness, merely proved that Christian Science can be made practical here and now in the solution of the problems of material existence.
