Testimonies of healing published...

Testimonies of healing published in the Christian Science periodicals have been a source of continued inspiration and encouragement to me since I became a student of this Science, and it is with the earnest hope of helping others that I submit the following testimony.

Eleven years ago I was stricken with a heart malady generally conceded by the medical profession to be incurable. After leading a busy and active life, I was put to bed for many months. The disease progressed through various phases for two years, finally culminating in a stroke of apoplexy. There followed nearly a year more in bed, any effort to regain activity occasioning serious and painful attacks. I was in this seemingly hopeless state when I found Christian Science and began reading Science and Health. A dear friend, who is an earnest student of Science, came to my home and taught me how to study the Lesson-Sermons. Feeling very fearful of giving up the medicine which I had thought so important, I refrained from asking for help from a practitioner, though I continued to study faithfully for three weeks, experiencing great spiritual joy and hope.

Finally the testing time came; the familiar symptoms became apparent and my nurse began the usual material preparations, when suddenly I knew that I could depend upon Christian Science and asked her to call for help from a practitioner. The call was made immediately, and the painful symptoms disappeared instantaneously, leaving strength instead of weakness, and a peaceful and joyous consciousness which I am unable to describe. I arose and dressed and went for a ride which had been previously planned, and for the first time in three years left the house without a kit of emergency medicine which the nurse had been cautioned always to have available. All medicine was destroyed at my request. This healing has been permanent. It took place just eight years ago, and there has never been the slightest return of the symptoms. Chronic constipation from which I had suffered all my life was also healed at this time, after I had disposed of the medicines and taken my stand for Science.
