RADIO PROGRAM No. 97 - How Do You Maintain Health?

[This is the second of a group of programs on Religion and Health]

INTERVIEWER: Today's interest in maintaining health extends beyond physical research. Sometime ago a leading physical scientist was quoted widely as saying: "The paradox is that, despite the spectacular advances in knowledge and treatment of diseases, the need for hospital facilities and the cost of medical care continue to increase." We would be interested in hearing what the Christian Scientist believes is the key to maintaining health.

SPEAKER: For the Christian Scientist his religion is his medicine. In fact, it is the same medicine that Christ Jesus recommended and prescribed. The Christian Scientist is convinced that spiritual understanding is the key to maintaining health.

INTERVIEWER: I am not sure that everyone knows what is meant by the term "spiritual understanding" and how it can maintain health.
