Dominion over Disease

Until  the discovery of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy, the world believed that disease controls human beings and that men are the helpless victims of it. Now, through this Science, great numbers of people are proving that sickness is a mental state and that they are not helpless before it, because spiritualization of thought removes all evidence of disease from their bodies.

The spiritualistic medium's belief that he is controlled by the spirits of the dead is not far removed from the mortal's belief that he is controlled by sickness. On page 6 of her sermon "Christian Healing," Mrs. Eddy uses this illustration of mediumship to teach the important lesson that we control our own bodies. She says: "Man thinks he is a medium of disease; that when he is sick, disease controls his body to whatever manifestation we see. But the fact remains, in metaphysics, that the mind of the individual only can produce a result upon his body."
