I turned to Christian Science for physical help just after my twenty-first birthday. For over a year I had been on a strict diet and taking laxatives because my food did not digest normally. Instead of getting better, I was becoming worse and had lost much weight. I wondered how I could possibly live unless a way could be found for me to eat what was needed to sustain me.

My father, though not a Christian Scientist, recommended that I see a Christian Science practitioner whose office was across the hall from his own. I did so, and the practitioner explained to me that God did not make sickness or inharmony. While she gave me a treatment she had me read the paragraph in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy which includes the sentence (p. 151), "Fear never stopped being and its action." Then she told me to start reading Science and Health through and to eat whatever I wished, for it would not hurt me.
