A Book Becomes the Physician

When I was little, we had a "medicine book" in our family. Most people did. It told how to make poultices and other home remedies. Its influence faded into the background as I grew up and went to a physician for physical problems.

However, after college, while taking some postgraduate work, I became friends with a young student who relied upon a totally different kind of book for her health. In fact she relied upon the truth that it taught for her whole happiness and well-being. Curious, I began to read a copy secretly, and I have never since that time been without Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
