Chapter 7 - - Physiology 

 Scientific foresight

Whenever an aggravation of symptoms has occurred through mental chemicalization, I have seen the mental signs, assuring me that danger was over, before the patient felt the change; and I have said to the patient, "You are healed," - sometimes to his discomfiture, when he was incredulous. But it always came about as I had foretold.

I name these facts to show that disease has a mental, mortal origin, - that faith in rules of health or in drugs begets and fosters disease by attracting the mind to the subject of sickness, by exciting fear of disease, and by dosing the body in order to avoid it. The faith reposed in these things should find stronger supports and a higher home. If we understood the control of Mind over body, we should put no faith in material means.
