Why I choose Christian Science for healing

Since healing through God's power is central to Christ Jesus' life and teaching, shouldn't it be natural for his followers to turn to God for healing?

I wasn't raised as a Christian Scientist, so I'm generally aware of medical remedies. While growing up, my sisters and I, escorted by our parents, made many trips to our well-liked family doctor. I never thought much about our family's choice of medical treatment. We wanted to be healthy and well, of course. My parents were conscientious and responsible, and I suppose their choice of medical treatment was automatic because they knew of no alternative.

In young adulthood I did begin to think more about health and what promotes it. My deeper thought was prompted by the severe chronic anemia I had suffered for years (and for which I took prescribed medication) and by hearing of healings that friends who were Christian Scientists had experienced through prayer.
