How does Christian Science heal?

Live audio chat with Colleen Douglass, C.S.B.

Colleen begins this chat by explaining that “a lot of people see healing as coming to terms with dying or a long-standing physical ailment. But in Christian Science, health is harmony; and since the word heal is at the root of health, healing means to restore to a natural state of health or harmony. Healing in Christian Science begins with a willingness to change thought and uplift it to God. Healing also includes a cure, which is the byproduct of that change of thought.”

Colleen answers questions on a range of themes, including the difference between prayer and Christian Science treatment; what’s involved in the healing process; whether some Christian Science practitioners are better than others; healing life-threatening conditions; dealing with prolonged cases of healing; regaining confidence in the effectiveness of Christian Science; relying on Christian Science while under medical care for other conditions; praying for children with a so-called serious disease who are under medical care; and healing eyesight and dental issues.
