In the thousands of life readings given by Edgar Cayce, he stressed the unity of the body, the soul, and the Universal Force that all of us share. Good physical health is vital, and Cayce often Gave revolutionary, detailed medical diagnoses to people for whom he knew no more than a name and address.
Since his death, many of Edgar Cayce's astounding recommendations have been borne out by modern research-and more and more people today are recognizing the importance of diet, exercise, stress management, and nontoxic medicines as part of overall good health.
Edgar Cayce was clearly one of the most remarkable psychics who ever lived. - Jeane Dixon
EDGAR CAYCE ON ACNE:
Acne is a skin disease characterized by eruptions, pimples, and blackheads on the face, appearing at times even on the neck, shoulders, and back. Although this condition is commondly identified with the period of adolescence, it often persists through adulthood if not taken care of when it first developes. One of the unfortunate features of acne is that it can leave scars and often deep pockmarks on the skin, even when it is cleared up.
Edgar Cayce gave thirty-seven readings on acne for twenty-nine people, most of whom were in their teens and twenties. Cayce consistently determined that acne was caused by either poor eliminations (eighty-seven percent of the cases), or nervous and/or glandular incoordination which directly affected the eliminations.
Poor circulation or deficiencies in the blood, such as lack of iron, were also noted in nearly twenty percent of the cases.
The following is one of his explanations for acne and its causes:
"Through the reactions in the blood supply we find disturbing factors in which there is lack of a balance in the chemical reactions through the system for proper assimilation and proper elimination of used energies. Some are destructive in their reactions-as is indicated in the manner in which there is a disturbance in the eliminations such as to cause poisons to attempt to be eliminated through the perspiratory system: or the abrasions, the pimples, the blackheads that form on that portion of the system."
Cayce's treatments focused mainly on establishing proper nutritional habits, and he suggested dietry guidelines in over seventy percent of the cases. Most often suggested were plenty of alkaline-reacting foods, such as citrus fruits and their juices, green vegetables and vegetable juices, fish, fowl, lamb, whole wheat bread and whole-grain cereals, and milk. Soy milk is a good substitute for people who can't handle dairy very well.
Foods to be avoided include:
Red meat, pork, fried or greasy foods, starchy sweets, chocolate, white potatoes, and white bread. Some were advised to drink a glass of milk or tomato juice with yeast twice a day.
Spinal manipulations to ensure balanced nerve coordination were recommended for over half of the individuals. These were to be administered twice a week at first. Also recommended as often were various forms of electrotherapy to establish better equilibrium among the body forces. The method most frequently suggested was low diathermy, which was usually to be given in conjunction with spinal manipulations. Use of the Violet Ray was also at times suggested.
Nearly forty percent of the individuals were prescribed herbal preparations with ingredients such as tincture of stillingia, essence of burdock root and yellow dock root. Yellow saffron tea, a digestive aid, was recommended in two cases.
Massage was considered an important factor in treatment for about thirty percent of the individuals. Instructions were to gently massage the entire body, giving special attention to the area along the spine. Various combinations of oils and other substances, such as olive oil mixed with tincture of myrrh and lanolin, mineral oil mixed with rose water, and spirits of peppermint and distilled water, were frequently part of the massage routine.
(Keep in mind that one can massage themselves. By rubbing their legs, arms, chest, and feet.)
Recommended for twenty-five percent of the individuals were topical applications for blemishes. These included Cuticura soap and ointment, Black and White creams, stearate of zinc powder with balsam (mainly for skin irritation, and camphorated oil.
Only six individuals receiving readings indicated that they had followed Cayce's advice, but all six reported either remarkable improvements or a complete cure.
Case 5218 was a thirty-five year old man who had spent twenty-two years trying unsuccessfully to cure his serious acne condition, which Cayce noted stemmed from poor eliminations and glandular malfunctioning.
Treatments began with a mixture composed of a tablespoon each of sulfur, Rochelle salts, and cream of tartar. A teaspoon of this mixture was to be taken in water each day until the mixture was used up.
To correct conditions in the third, fourth, and sixth dorsal and in the third cervical and lumbar vertebrae, twelve osteopathic adjustments were to be administered on a twice weekly basis. A diathermy treatment was to be given just prior to each adjustment.
Following the series of adjustments, the man was to resume taking his sulfur-Rochelle salts-cream of tartar mixture and then repeat the diathermy and adjustment cycle.
Chocolates and pastries were to be avoided; however, an occasional glass of non-carbonated Coca-Cola was permited, as Cayce considered it beneficial in cleansing the kidneys.
Later the man reported remarkable improvements in the condition of his skin, even though he had not completely followed the treatments as prescribed.

Edgar Cayce was truly an outstanding man. He died poor but he made many rich with his readings about the stock market, and other ways of earning money. He lived by the rule that if he used his talent for anything other than to help people, that it would be taken away from him by God. He was truly one of America's greatest psychics.
