Incurable food allergy healed

When a young woman was faced with a serious and incurable condition, the realization that God did not create disease brought complete and permanent healing.

A few years ago, when I was 13, doctors diagnosed me with a serious and incurable disease. I was told to stop eating lots of foods, such as bread and other baked goods, and refrain from eating any grains and products that might contain grains. Such a strict diet and constant oversight by doctors and specialists, who kept saying how dangerous my condition was, prompted my mother to start looking for a way to find healing spiritually (since physically it was impossible).

Fortunately, a friend told her about Christian Science. We started attending church, and I began going to Sunday School. Gradually, I began to understand that disease, sin, and death are not created by God, as Christian Science teaches, and therefore do not have the reality that they seem to claim. Instead, this disease was no more than an illusion of the physical senses keeping me from seeing what was true.

Focusing only on the good that God creates, I started getting rid of negative thoughts and gained confidence that I could be healed. But not until I fully understood that God is Life, that I am His reflection, and that His reflection cannot be sick, did the disease yield.

It has now been over two years since I felt any discomfort or pain. And what a joy it was for me, and what happiness for my mother, when during a mandatory medical exam at school, doctors announced that I was absolutely healthy!
