I would also assume that the people at Morsecodet's church probably did seek medical attention for their various problems.

But maybe their spiritual values overwhelm the doctors' mere material values.

That's a paraphrase.  I can't remember her exact words, but when Mary Baker Eddy got old the Christian Scientists found she was going to a doctor or dentist.  That was an obvious violation of her no-medical principles.  She gave a dodge about she was beating down the doctor spiritually (and apparently silently) and her followers accepted it.
