Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
7 - - Physiology
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.
