Testimonies of Healing

Severe indigestion healed

From the November 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

With a heart full of gratitude, I would like to share a recent healing. Last year in March, I woke up one Saturday at midnight with severe symptoms of indigestion. I started praying to know and to hold to divine Mind’s control over the universe, which includes me. 

I woke my husband to ask him to help me find a more comfortable position, and then gave myself Christian Science treatment through prayer and went back to sleep. But after a few hours, I woke up again with stomach pain and vomiting. This time I quietly managed to make myself comfortable without asking for my husband’s help. 

Then I listened to God, and a thought came to me that I have read many times in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: “Mind’s control over the universe, including man, is no longer an open question, but is demonstrable Science” (p. 171). That meant I could demonstrate that control in my life now, which I had demonstrated many times in the past in various situations. Secondly, I read, “Mind regulates the condition of the stomach, bowels, and food, the temperature of children and of men, and matter does not”—again, from Science and Health (p. 413).
