Due to the aftereffects of typhoid fever at the age of four...

Due to the aftereffects of typhoid fever at the age of four, I suffered intense pain and extreme nervousness for many years. I submitted to two operations, one minor, the other major, without favorable results. Christian Science was then presented to me by a dear friend. The nervous condition tried to manifest itself in many different forms, and the healing took much persistent work on the part of a practitioner, as well as myself. At times the road looked dark, but in the end I found light, and learned a much-needed lesson.

Some time ago I had a vomiting spell which lasted several hours. Those about me, not being in Science, seemed very much alarmed at my condition, and asked me if I would permit them to call a physician, but I refused, holding to my understanding of God and His perfect creation. The practitioner asked my husband to read to me the chapter on Prayer from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. When my suffering was at its height, I became conscious of the fact that God is Life, and right then and there I was healed. I was not confined to my bed from any ill effects and soon regained my strength and continued with my duties. This is one of the many healings I have had since taking up the study of Christian Science.

I was healed of influenza in one treatment, and a severe form of constipation was overcome in a short time. The cigarette habit of many years' standing was destroyed while I was being treated for a stomach condition. Headaches, ulcerated tooth, an injured kneecap, stomach trouble, bilious attacks, gastric condition, granulated eyelids, poor eyesight, numbness and pain—all these difficulties have yielded under Christian Science treatment.
