In the chapter "Christian Science Practice" in Science and Health, we find these words: "Immortal Mind, governing all, must be acknowledged as supreme in the physical realm, so-called, as well as in the spiritual" (p. 427). At one time, I had an opportunity to prove the truth in this statement.
A filling in one of my teeth had fallen out, and there was pain and swelling around the tooth. I visited a dentist, expecting to have the tooth repaired. He said the tooth could not be saved and advised pulling it. When the tooth was out, the dentist expressed concern because of an abscess and prescribed medication to counteract the infection. I thanked him, and assured him I would be fine.
On returning home, I called a Christian Science practitioner and asked her for treatment, as my desire was to be healed through prayer without medication. For two or three days there was no improvement. One night the swelling in my face became very hard, and it was difficult for me to swallow.
