Healing of chronic tonsillitis

My first encounter with the Christian Science textbook happened as if by accident, but I only realized later that it was divine Love that led me to Christian Science. In 2004 I went to my friend’s house to borrow books to read. As I was selecting a book, one caught my eye, and I asked him what the book was all about. He said he did not know much about what was written in it as he had read little of the book. He then added that it had been given to him by his brother, a medical doctor, who thought it would help him because of his occasional bouts of illness. 

So in an offhand way my friend loaned me the book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. The moment I read in the Preface, “The time for thinkers has come” and “Ignorance of God is no longer the stepping-stone to faith” (p. vii), I was hooked. I could not stop reading it.

At that time I had been seasonally suffering from tonsillitis ever since I was about ten years of age. Every year, somewhere in mid-August, I would experience inflammation of my throat glands for almost two weeks. It was a painful experience. I came to a point where I dreaded the month of August. When I was at the age of twelve, the doctor diagnosed the condition as tonsillitis. My father suggested that I be operated on to remove the glands.
