A gift that actually fits, by Linda Ross

Unwrap the gift of confidence in our own decisions about life and health.

Linda Ross, a spiritual writer, Christian Science Practitioner and colleague, shares her unique perspective on healthcare options and choosing them wisely.  In this article, both physicians and spiritual leaders give strong advice about learning to trust ourselves when making decisions about our own health.  There is even a new initiative called ‘Choosing Wisely’ supported by the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation that encourages people to be more involved in making their own health decisions.  Linda talks about her personal experience with choosing the right type of healthcare for her-she decided to turn to prayer.  Read how Linda was completely healed!
