Is there a panacea?

The word "panacea" is often used disparagingly. Can anything be a cure-all—a remedy for every ill and trouble? One result of this skepticism has been a proliferation of medical and psychological approaches that would divide a person into segments, each to be treated by a separate method.

Whatever one's problem seems to be, a fuller understanding of God always opens the way to an answer. The Bible, from which Christian Science receives its authority, states that God, Spirit, created man. So man is spiritual, and we need to understand this. Because God is man's only creator, man is whole and always supplied with both health and strength. This man—the true selfhood of every one of us—is conscious only of harmony. Disease, then, can be seen and proved to be an illusory, false mental concept.
