An Edgar Cayce Anthology
How exciting to rediscover this book which I bought years ago. I have just unpacked it from a box where it has been stored for several years.
‘An Edgar Cayce Anthology’ was published by the Edagar Cayce Foundation in 1979. In this book is an article by W.H. Church, on the spiritual and healing qualities of the almond, and its value as a cancer preventative. This article has much information which is gleaned from Edgar Cayce’s pyschic readings on the almond.
Almond As Cancer Preventative: An excerpt from reading number 3180-3 of Edgar Cayce’s says: ” …..and if an almond is taken each day, and kept up, you’ll never have accumulations of tumors or such conditions through the body. An almond a day is much more in accord with keeping the doctor away, especially certain types of doctors, than apples.”
Almonds are high in potassium, phosphorous, calcium and iron. All these things are found to be important for preventing and treating cancer. Almonds also have amounts of laetrile, or vitamin B17, which is known to be effective in reducing cancerous tumours. Almonds have good amounts of Niacin, an important B Vitamin which is essential in preventing and treating cancer. Almonds also contain Riboflavin. They are rich in protein, and contain all eight of the essential amino acids.
It seems, from W.H. Church’s account, that the iron and phosphorous in almonds are in a combination which makes them easily assimilated by the human body.
Almonds benefit the brain and the nervous system generally. It has been found that two of the body’s Endocrine glands, the Pituitary and the Pineal gland, require large amounts of phosphorous for their healthy functioning. Edgar Cayce equated these two glands with Spiritual Realities, or Divine Realities: The Pineal Gland corresponds to the “Name”, or the Christed Consciousness, and the Pituitary Gland corresponds to “The Kingdom OF Heaven”. These terms are to be found in Cayce’s readings, and also in his commentary on the Book of Revelations. See page 71 of ‘An Edgar Cayce Anthology’ for more details on Edgar Cayce, Almonds and the Endocrine Glands.
These glands are important for the hormonal functions of the body, and the immune system. Thus, almonds will go a long way in preventing diseases and maintaining good health. Almonds should help, as well as protecting against cancer, to also prevent diabetes, high blood pressure, alzheimer’s disease, and other degenerative diseases of the circulation, brain and nervous system.
Almonds would seem to be of great benefit to people who are trying to maintain a healthy immune system following effects of radiation fall-out from the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The phosphorous in almonds, combined with the other nutrients such as laetrile, or Vitamin B17, or amygdalin, will help to keep the thyroid healthy and hold cancer at bay.
Edgar Cayce advised from one to three almonds to clients. Each client was given a specific amount – some needed only one a day, while others were given more.
W.H. Church explains that the almond recommended in Cayce’s readings was more a tool to “assist the evolving of the human personality in raising the consciousness in each cell to a recognition of the Divine within”.
