Christian Healing in Daily Life
The divine Principle of healing is proved in the personal experience of any sincere seeker of Truth.
(Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, x:22–23)

Many people have found that as God’s presence and love become more real and tangible, healing and regeneration occur naturally." ( - Christianscience.com)

Healed after Being Bedridden for Ten Years
"...For almost ten years I was unable to stand or walk; I could only sit up for a short time each day, not always that. The difficulty in moving spread, and other complications developed. Several times it appeared that I was about to pass on. I could eat little and slept poorly. Our home, an upper flat in central London, was for four of these years under air attack. Financial supply had to be found, too...." Read more here.
