In 1947, Christian Science came into my household at a critical moment, although I had no previous knowledge of this religion. For many years I suffered from poor digestion. I was always in bad humor and had violent and sudden fits of anger. I took a lot of medicine, and the doctor who treated me had made all the preparations for me to go to a clinic for a gallbladder operation.

My mother-in-law, hearing of this, advised me to go to a woman who, she said, healed through prayer. She gave me the address, and I went to see the woman, who I learned later was a Christian Science practitioner. My attitude was rather skeptical.

However, the healing was immediate. When I left the practitioner, I was full of joy, something I had not felt for a long time. It seemed to me that I was living for the first time. The same day I gave up the services of the doctor and canceled the scheduled operation. I threw out all medicine, and since then I have been able to eat everything. Also at that time I wore glasses, which I laid aside two years later. I have never had any need for them since.
