Almost. The majority of medical studies actually show the use of meditation in conjunction withRead More traditional medicine to alleviate pain. More and more contemporary medicine uses all evidence based protocols to deal with medical conditions. It is unfortunate that Christian Science - the organization for which you are a lobbyist and public relations head - eschews science and medicine. By limiting assistance to only prayer and meditation - CS is unable to effectively deal with human suffering. If you are being honest, it is also important to mention that the book "Science and Health" you mentioned is a Christian Science publication. So, you have a vested interest in promoting it. Unfortunately, CS has absolutely no interest in reducing pain - if the solution involves medication, anesthetics or science. Instead, prayer is supposed to be the only means directed at relieving suffering from pain. Christian Science dismisses the idea that G-d's knowledge is imparted through human learning - and that medicine and science, are part of the gifts from the creator. What is odd about this is that Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science - paid for her sister-in-laws mastectomy and her grandchildren's vaccinations. Why is traditional evidence based medicine good enough for the found of Christian Science's family but not for the religion's faithful?
