Preventive and Curative Arts

When, in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy wrote (p. 369), "The prophylactic and therapeutic (that is, the preventive and curative) arts belong emphatically to Christian Science, as would be readily seen, if psychology, or the Science of Spirit, God, was understood," she made a revolutionary statement. Here Mrs. Eddy shows that true "psychology" is "the Science of Spirit, God," and, when understood, it eliminates fear and both forestalls and heals disease through Mind.

Mrs. Eddy was herself instantaneously healed of injuries received from a severe fall. It was this healing which proved to her conclusively that she had discovered the divine law of Life. After testing this law thoroughly in applying it to the human need, she gave her discovery to the world in her textbook and other writings. It is in this book that the preventive and curative arts are made plain.
