The history of the medical profession, and the expressed opinions...

From the August 1893 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The history of the medical profession, and the expressed opinions of many of the members of that profession, both of past generations and of the present generation, warrant all that is claimed by believers in Christian Science touching the inadequacy of drugs and medicines as healing agents. Indeed, according to the common verdict of the more learned and honest members of the profession, if drugs and medicines are the only healing means, the startling fact confronts us that humanity is without a healing power, or a means of saving human life, for the most that is claimed for the drugging system is that it alleviates pain and suffering, and aids nature in throwing off disease.
