The desire for happiness is universal, and in order to obtain complete happiness, one must enjoy good health. It is not surprising, then, that the search for health and for methods of curing disease receives so much attention.

Although vast numbers of people are seeking healing and health through drugs or hypnotism, such efforts afford at best only a temporary relief. On the other hand, Christian Science offers the spiritual method of healing and the true idea of health as taught by the Master, Christ Jesus. He did not use medicine or psychiatry for healing, but relied completely on God for the cure of disease and for maintaining the spiritual sense of health.

Mary Baker Eddy tells in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" how healing is accomplished scientifically. She says (Pref., p. xi), "The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation."
