Is food powerful?

Food. The thought of it and the consumption of it occupy a great deal of our day. Food is a moneymaker, whether one owns a restaurant that attracts customers because of its known quality, or one works in the health industry assisting clients in planning a certain diet. Food can also become an obsession.

My mom had been medically diagnosed with thyroid cancer. After her third surgery, she decided to find her own answer to the persistent problem. She stopped going to doctors and began a quest for health. She investigated everything from unorthodox medicinal and dietary remedies, to Christian Science. When I was 11, Mom enrolled my brother and me in the Christian Science Sunday School. She began to study the Christian Science Bible Lesson and attend church on a regular basis.
