As a small child and for many...

As a small child and for many years afterward, I was troubled with constipation. I tried almost every known remedy, but without permanent results. Finally the doctors told me that the condition was chronic and that I would always have to take some form of medication. Then I asked for help from a Christian Science practitioner.

The practitioner referred me to this statement in Science and Health (p. 368): "When fear disappears, the foundation of disease is gone." This thought helped me to overcome all fear of the condition. I decided to take an absolute stand for Christian Science and to obey divine Mind every step of the way. In addition, I declared that I knew the problem was not real or true, because God never created it or caused it.

I thought of myself as in reality a perfect, complete, spiritual idea. The realization that God is the true Ego enabled me to overcome a great deal of self-will. The results were, to human sense, almost miraculous, and I have been free ever since. This healing of constipation took place about nine years ago and has been permanent.
