Lifting medicine above the limitations of matter

From the July 1990 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Radical changes are taking place in society's thinking about how best to alleviate suffering and restore the sick and dying to health and usefulness. At issue is whether humanity will continue to approach healing and medicine from the premise that disease and health are essentially physiological phenomena, or whether serious attention will be given to the growing recognition among some physicians and lay people that disease and cure are far more mental and spiritual than previously thought.
