Langport and Somerton Herald

I have read with much interest the "Talk on Health" in your issue of December 2. As there was a reference to Christian Science, I shall be grateful if you will allow me space for a brief comment.

Remembering the Christian Science viewpoint, one finds it interesting to note that the medical faculty is recognizing in an ever growing degree the mental causation and cure of disease.

"A Family Doctor," after advising against the use of alcohol and drugs, makes the interesting statement that his work is "to place the patient in as favorable a position as possible to allow nature to perform the cure. Nature does the work," he says, "and I take the fee." Various methods of treating disease "depend one and all on the curative power of nature," is the broad-minded dictum of the doctor. Referring to different methods of treating a wounded finger, some of which are distinctly obsolete, he says: "The Christian Scientist sits up all night reading Mrs. Eddy, and sure enough, there is no getting away from it, the finger does heal; Mrs. Eddy does look after her disciples."
