Healing a broken bone by reading something? Huh?

Q: How can you heal a broken bone just by reading something in the Bible or Science and Health?

A: Countless people have been healed as a result of exploring those books; the final chapter of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy contains a hundred pages of examples of people healed simply by reading it, including the healing of a broken bone (see pp. 605–606).

But I have a feeling that’s not really what you’re asking. To me the question sounds more like, When you’re in trouble, how can reading words actually help?
