I am deeply grateful for the manner in which I was healed of a stubborn case of constipation, for it proved beyond doubt that diet, medicine, material means, exercise, or the lack of it, were not factors in the healing.

I had led an active life on a small farm, swimming daily and taking long hikes into the hills before my family moved into a city. I started to work in an office, and although I liked my work, I was unaccustomed to remaining seated all day and felt caged in. Soon I was troubled with constipation. I knew nothing of Christian Science at this time, so I started daily exercise and observed diet and health rules. I also tried every remedy I heard mentioned but received no lasting relief.

After a number of years Christian Science was presented to me. How glad I am that I accepted this truth and started a systematic study of the Bible and the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy! As I cleared my thinking of false beliefs, I also cleared the medicine chest and threw out a carton of remedies. I discontinued special exercises and diet. During the months that followed I received many quick healings through my own work and with the help of a Christian Science practitioner.
