There are millions of drug ads promoted in the popular media, and if one would like to stay healthy, it is wise to defend one’s thinking against any influence from those ads!
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Descriptions of disease given by physicians and advertisements of quackery are both prolific sources of sickness” (Science and Health, p. 179). “Advertisements of quackery,” are any media content that promotes disease as a reality. She labels these types of ads as “quackery,” because in Truth, disease is not a reality. It’s a lie and can be healed when seen as a lie.
It’s best to defend one’s thinking from the influence of ads because ads promote disease as realities. They build disease up and present pictures of it intended to make viewers afraid of the disease. It is not in our best interest to believe in disease! Quite to the contrary.
To stay healthy, it’s best to have a consciousness free of any images, descriptions, fears or beliefs about disease.
People experience what they believe. Definitely, positively, certainly, do not put faith in disease! Put all faith in God. Believe in Truth, not in disease. Know that health is a spiritual state of Mind divinely bestowed upon you by God, and present to reflect 100% of the time.
It’s not images of disease that keep you healthy. It’s thoughts of Truth and Love that keep you healthy and strong.
Welcome into consciousness only what is in your best interest to know. And stay healthy!
