Removal of fear yields healing

Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “If you succeed in wholly removing the fear, your patient is healed” (p. 411–412). What a powerful thought! I want to share an experience that really brought this idea to my attention for the first time.

Five years ago, I was living in a foreign country and my menstrual period stopped for three months. At first, it didn’t worry me and I didn’t think much about it. However, as the weeks went by, I started to be afraid that something was actually wrong.

One afternoon, I remembered that my host mom had told me months earlier about how someone in her family had experienced a similar situation when traveling abroad, and that she’d been told it was related to malnutrition. I never knew how her situation got resolved, but all I knew was that this individual continued to see a doctor about it.
