Change of thought is the heart of healing

More and more medical professionals today discern a relationship between the human mind and body, and acknowledge that thought has an impact on health. They may even engage a patient's thought positively and encourage his participation in his cure. Of course, these efforts also include reliance on physical remedies, therapies, and drugs.

There's a need, however, to go much deeper. Ill health is, at base, thought. And a change of thought, or regeneration, through spiritual means alone is the heart of Christian healing. The Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, states: "The procuring cause and foundation of all sickness is fear, ignorance, or sin. Disease is always induced by a false sense mentally entertained, not destroyed. Disease is an image of thought externalized" (p. 411).
