Testimonies of Healing

Healed of many diseases

From the April 2017 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Originally written in Spanish, this testimony first appeared in the February 2017 Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

I found out about the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy through a niece. She told me it had been written by a lady who healed as Christ Jesus taught, and I immediately wanted to buy it. She gave me the contact information for a Christian Science Reading Room. When I called to find out about the book, I was invited to attend a Christian Science lecture the following week. After listening to the lecture, I felt so enthusiastic that I returned home eagerly looking forward to reading Science and Health.

At that time, I was suffering from many diseases and took many pills. I was suffering from hypothyroidism (a condition for which it was thought I would have to take medicine for life), as well as high blood pressure, which gave me effusions in my eyes that I sought treatment for. I also suffered from bronchial asthma and dermatitis, and I had two knitted vertebrae in my spinal column, problems with my knees, and a complication with my bladder. These diseases prevented me from doing my chores at home and other activities.

As I began to read Science and Health and to attend the church services at a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, I realized this was what I had been looking for.
