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.

Healing of pain and inflamation

Last winter several incidents brought about back pain so severe that I could hardly stand or sit comfortably. I tried a couple of common material remedies, a chiropractor, and holistic medications, but there was no relief.

‘Unblemished, untouched’ by a burn

Gophers destroy gardens. I had a very large garden and decided on a humane approach—often inserting smoke bombs into their tunnels to encourage them to find dwellings elsewhere.

Unhurt by mosquitoes

A few years ago, I took a course to become certified in teaching English as a second language. Then I looked for the right place to spend the next few months in Latin America, where I could practice my Spanish and be of service.

Dancing again—with joy

I love to dance! Dancing is an expression of qualities such as grace, rhythm, discipline, energy, joy, agility, harmony, and coordination. One evening, a few years ago, I had to leave a dance event early because of back pain.

Blessed by Christian Science Nursing Care

A number of years ago, I began to experience severe pain in one hip and leg whenever I tried to sit or bend in any way. I could stand and walk but could not lie down in any position except on my back.

Heart condition healed

In 2011, I experienced a healing that strengthened my confidence in the power of God to heal, and gave me a needed push Spiritward. I had started noticing an occasional elevated heart rate, shortness of breath, and a number of other deeply concerning, very painful physical symptoms.

Healed of an internal growth

I was introduced to Christian Science a year after my husband passed away. My early study of Christian Science helped me overcome many different challenges our young family was facing.

Distance no obstacle to healing

Several years ago, I had an experience that taught me the power of Christian Science treatment, regardless of distance. My husband and I took our children to a remote part of Guatemala for a family retreat at Lake Atitlán.

Out of a bad drug trip to spiritual freedom

One summer many years ago I went through one of my greatest challenges—the use of recreational drugs. At college and in home circles, many friends and relatives were into heavy alcohol and drug use.

Child’s quick healing

It is with much gratitude that I share a recent healing of my younger son. While visiting my parents in Florida, my five-year-old woke up complaining about a sharp pain in his stomach.
