Advantages of Drugless Healing

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE brings to the world the same drugless method of healing that Christ Jesus practiced. Its diagnosis is mental, its medicine is divine Mind, its effect is permanent. Its greatest advantage is that it reveals God's man—spiritual man, made in Mind's image, constituted of His ever-harmonious energies and substance. In this real man health is perfect and eternally established. Human beings are secure in health only in the degree that they demonstrate their true, Christly selfhood as children of God and maintain a sense of unity with Mind by expressing the qualities of Mind.

The carnal mind, the opposite of divine Mind, produces a material concept of man, the opposite of the real, spiritual man; and it produces the illnesses that befall a mortal. This so-called mind also produces material medicine. It is surely time for all men to realize that the mind which produces an ill cannot cure it. Christian Science avers that it cannot. Something higher than matter is needed to correct physical discord. Only divine Mind can make such a correction; and this it does through Christ, Truth, which destroys the belief in a mind that is not God and a man who is not Godlike. Christian Science wakens human beings to know and utilize the Christ-power embodied in individual man, a power ever available to heal both sin and sickness.

Another great advantage of the drugless method of Christian Science is that it penetrates where matter cannot reach. It searches the inmost secrets of the mind and brings to the surface of thought the fears and sins and cramping emotions that distort the body and disrupt its normal action. Once uncovered, deleterious states of mind can then be dispelled in favor of health-giving purity, peace, and harmony.
