For any disease, there is a chance of spontaneous remission. For the common cold, people get over them all the time, regardless of their personal remedy. Maybe you can't explain Christain Sceince because it is not connected at all to what you say it is. You have taken something unexplained and made up this connection. Your choice of words, "in league with increasing numbers in the medical field who acknowledge the direct connection between mind and body", is extremely loose. I would suggest looking into what evidence really exists. I have looked, and have not found any credible evidence for intercessory prayer.
