No more Parkinson's disease

About four years ago, I began feeling a general loss of stamina and balance in my daily walking—even fell a number of times because of weakness in my legs. Three doctors took brain scans and determined that I had Parkinson’s disease. Their prognosis was that I would first need a wheelchair and later on be confined to a bed. They told me there was no cure. This I refused to accept.

I was sent to a neurologist. Her answer was pills, but they only made me feel worse (horrible nightmares). So she took me off all medicine.

As a child, I had attended Christian Science Sunday School for about five years. I remembered what I learned there, that man is spiritual, not material. I thought, God is good, and He made man perfect, so I’m not going to accept this disease as the truth about myself. Instead, I focused on being in the presence of God. I also read Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.
