Testimonies of Healing

Verification of Healings

The healings we publish are verified by people who can vouch for the testifier or who know of the healing. Examples of Christian healing from individuals and families around the world have been published in the Christian Science periodicals for well over a century.

The most recently-published testimonies are at the top.

Forgiveness heals eye swelling

Christ Jesus’ ministry illustrates forgiveness and unconditional love, and as I prayed one day to understand Christly love, I found an opportunity to express this love myself. I was putting on eyeliner one morning and noticed that one eye was tender.

Chronic bleeding stopped

For a year and a half, I struggled with a chronic issue of blood and other symptoms. Since I wasn’t in any pain, I reasoned that I could live with it, and I almost came to accept this condition as part of my being.

Free of caffeine addiction

Ever since my teen years, morning had always started with caffeinated coffee. That was the liquid that I depended on to get me going; that was part of my daily wake-up routine.

Quick Healing of An Injury

A recent event has made me better understand the immediate help that Christian Science offers to us at all times. I was installing a curtain rod at home, and as I firmly pushed a part into its narrow groove, my thumb and nail turned completely backward.

Allergies gone

In November 2013, I had a healing of a long-held allergy to chrysanthemums,  which had started 57 years earlier when my fiancé and I attended a formal banquet one November. At the banquet I was given a beautiful mum corsage, which I wore on my shoulder, and the tables were decorated with lovely, large golden chrysanthemum plants.

Claiming a ‘good report’

One day out of nowhere I began experiencing a great deal of pain in one of my legs. Without any obvious physical cause, it continued.

Healing of symptoms of asthma

When I was young, I always had trouble breathing when the fog rolled in where I lived in Santa Monica, California. While the condition wasn’t diagnosed, the symptoms were consistent with asthma attacks.

Gratitude is a lifesaver

Gratitude is a powerful healing quality—and it’s a lifesaver. I know, because it saved my life years ago.

Unclasping fear’s hold

For a period of over a year, I experienced unreliable vision and recurring painful irritation in my eyes, which interfered with safe driving and hindered many of my day-to-day activities. Throughout the year, working with a Christian Science practitioner, who gave me prayerful treatment, helped me to be comfortable in several times of need.

Stomach pain ceased

Over a period of a year or so, I experienced severe stomach cramps every three or four weeks. I prayed for myself as we are taught in Christian Science and my metaphysical treatments brought some improvement, but the condition kept recurring.
