No more food allergies

The year before Christian Science came into my life, I left a full-time teaching position to stay at home with my infant son. For several years, I had had a recurring physical problem, which greatly intensified during this period. After many tests, I was diagnosed with severe food allergies and was forced to completely abstain from many kinds of foods. It was almost impossible to live normally. I couldn’t go out to eat, as I had to know exactly what was contained in everything I ingested. I prepared normal meals for my family, but was unable to eat much of it.

I pursued many kinds of alternative healing therapies, various diets, and vitamin therapies, including naturopathic and other treatments. With each of the treatments I would feel relief and think I had solved the problem, but the improvement was always temporary and would not last for more than a few months. In addition, with each trip to the doctor the list of food allergies grew and grew. I became very alarmed.

Our family was going through a period of tremendous financial strain, and it was clear I needed to go back to work. A friend knew I had a talent for sewing and found me a job making clothes for someone being cared for at a Christian Science nursing facility. It was there that I first encountered Christian Science. I worked for this woman for over a year and witnessed the loving nursing care she received. I also believed I was witnessing the healing that Jesus practiced and said was available to all that believe (see Mark 9:23).
