Edgar Cayce Encyclopedia of Healing by Reba Ann Karp describes some of the most famous protocols of Edgar Cayce. Cayce was a healer who utilized
naturally based protocols to heal patients. His treatments were known and well respected in his time, as well as today.

Karp describes classic Cayce approaches to malfunctions of the body which include poor assimilation and diet, spinal subluxations, a lack of acid/base balance, an uncoordinated nervous system, bad circulation, toxins and glandular malfunctions. Karp’s book covers Cayce’s protocols for all of these conditions. The protocols have been in use for decades and continue in use.

For instance, Cayce traced blindness to inadequate toxin elimination, spinal pressures, and general physical debilitating conditions in existence for many years. Treatments for blindness included standard surgery for some patients but it also included spinal manipulations, massages, dietary changes, glycothymoline packs for the spine, and the Erlanger Method of low current doses to the eye.

Cayce found a number of common problems in asthma patients, namely poor spinal alignment, excess levels of stress, and either poor diet or classic allergens. The Cayce treatment for pneumonia was very unique and the protocol transcended the exclusive use of antibiotics.

Cayce sought to provide pneumonia patients with an alkaline diet over too much acid in foods. Patients also received massages to help drain the lungs and alcohol rubs to reduce fevers.

Massages were considered to be important to help prevent patients from choking to death from stubborn pockets of mucus. Cayce utilized eucalyptus for patients to inhale together with benzoin. Cayce utilized syrup of squill for infections, as well as onion juice.

Cayce believed that arthritis was aggravated by poor assimilation and elimination of toxins, intestinal imbalances, and poor circulation. Cayce utilized massages with peanut oil, dietary changes, colonics, spinal manipulation, and medicinal use of gold and Atomidine. Cayce also believed that arthritis originated from liver, glandular, and kidney malfunctions.

Edgar Cayce Encyclopedia of Healing is a wonderful tool for use in order to supplement conventional medicine. There are qualified practitioners in the area of complementary medicine. Many of the modern medical practitioners in complementary medicine are listed in Burton Goldberg’s book on The Definitive Guide to Alternative Medicine. Readers should utilize Edgar Cayce’s protocols with the concurrence of their medical team of experts.
