Almonds For Health And Edgar Cayce

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”.

Gall Bladder Cleanse

Method To Flush Gall Stones

This method for cleaning out the gall bladder and flushing away stones is taken from the book which is written by Dr Edward Wagner and Sylvia Goldfarb. This is an Australian book, published, I think, by the National Library of Australia, in the 1980’s.

Note: The authors state that  ‘The information in this book is not intended as a substitute for consulting your physician.  All matters regarding your health require medical supervision’.

This book is called ‘How To Stay Out of The Doctor’s Office’: ‘An Encyclopedia For Alternative Healing’.

Castor Oil Packs: These are the old stand-by, popular with many healers such as Max Gerson, Walter Last, Edgar Cayce, and many others, including Dr Wagner.

Begin treatment with a castor oil pack to break up stones in the gall bladder:

Dr Wagner’s method for using castor oil packs is to soak white flannel in castor oil, wring out  and apply to the liver/gall bladder area.  Cover with a piece of plastic in the usual way.

I think a warm  hot-water bottle is best applied to the castor oil pack.   Dr Wagner recommends that you leave the pack on for one hour, and that you repeat the castor oil pack treatment twice a day.  Of course, it is best to lie down with the warmth of the hot-water bottle over the pack for this therapy to be truly effective.

Castor oil has the effect of loosening and breaking up stones so that they can be eliminated more easily.

Gall Bladder Flush

I think the castor oil packs for gall stones are best done for a three day period.  Walter last recommended ‘three days on and three days off’ when using castor oil packs.

After the three day period using castor oil packs on the gall bladder area twice a day,  Dr Wagner’s lemon juice and olive oil treatment could be taken. (ask advice from your health practitioner before trying this)

Olive Oil and Lemon Juice Flush

Dr Wagner recommends that nothing be eaten after lunch.  So – fast from lunch-time onward.  Don’t eat tea.  At 7 o’clock in the evening, take 4 tablespoons of olive oil followed immediately with the juice of a lemon – about 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice.  Repeat the same dose every 15 minutes, taking 4 tablespoons of olive oil followed by the juice of one lemon. Take the last dose at 8.45 pm.

Dr Wagner recommends that you go to bed at 10 pm and lie on the right side.  The gall stones should be eliminated in the morning with the first bowel movement.

Dr Wagner believes that getting the gall bladder taken out is NOT the answer to gall stones. Gall stones do not develop because the gall bladder is sick –  Gall stones develop because of liver dysfunction.   So getting the gall bladder taken out does not address the problem of having a malfunctioning liver.

The liver needs to be nurtured and healed with appropriate diet and cleansing  to avoid gall stones forming.

Liver Aids:

Parsley,  Dandelion Root Coffee, Dandelion Greens, all help the liver.  Lecithin helps the liver to process fats:  lecithin which is derived from soy beans can be helpful in restoring liver function.

Cascara sagrada will help eliminate gall stones from the gall bladder.

Castor Oil taken internally also helps to break down gall stones and eliminate them, however, you would not combine this with the olive oil and lemon juice treatment.  You would use one or the other.  Using castor oil packs, though is ok in combination with the olive oil and lemon juice therapy.

Avoid Sugar, Dairy products, and Wheat products. Avoid fried foods.

Get the bowels functioning more efficiently.

Eat more alkaline greens and more raw salads.  Always eat something raw with every meal.

Use a colonic or an enema at least once a week, and more often if the problem persists.
