When people ask me why I chose Christian Science and why I stay with it. My response is always:  Because it works!

Those already exposed to, or involved with, Christian Science will understand this response.  Let me explain.

Over the last seven years I have had just one headache.  That is one headache in seven years.  Prior to taking up Christian Science I had had a headache every day for more than a decade.  After years of consulting with doctors I had no permanent solution to this problem.  For more than ten years I consumed more than the recommended dose of pain killers every single day.  Try as I might I was unable to break this cycle.  I was also on a range of other medications for other medically diagnosed conditions.

When I decided to take up the study of Christian Science I gave up the pills and decided to rely on prayer for a solution.  Since taking this stand I haven’t needed to resort to painkillers and I haven’t had a need for any medication at all in seven years.  In this time I have only had one minor headache.  I am attributing this solely to my greater understanding and acceptance of Christian Science.  This is the single factor I can pinpoint in this turn around.

I recommend Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with key to the Scriptures, to anyone wishing to make fundamental changes in their life.  It is not an ‘easy read’ but is definitely life changing.
