There's much more in this book than diet and nutrition.
Carol Chapman
Reilly is a master himself, so getting his perspective of Edgar Cayce's work is powerful.

I haven't had a chance to read much of it yet but what I have read is very good.

I've owned this book for several years. Although I can't say that I practiced all of the treatments diligently or with regularity, it's surprising how much of the health and diagnoses information given by psychic Edgar Cayce in the 19th and 20th centuries, coincides with modern-day medical advice.
I'd like to begin this review with a disclaimer. Please don't follow the advice in this book without being under the care or supervision of a doctor. In fact, Reilly suggests this before undergoing any of the treatments in the book.
Although we now know most of the dietary advice that Cayce gave is now common knowledge, you have to remember that Cayce was born on March 18, 1877. He started readings at the age of 21 when he was afflicted with a paralysis of the throat, and continued his readings up until the time of his death in Virginia Beach,VA on January 3, 1945. Much of the advice we take for granted now was not known by dieticians, doctors, and the like when Cayce first gave predictions. Harold Reilly was the man who practiced many of Cayce's treatments. He's treated stars like Mickey Rooney, Robert Frost,Gloria Swanson, Bob Hope, Mae West, Jessica Tandy...among others.
Cayce's dietary advice is as follows. For example, Cayce cautions against eating red meats, and instead encourages people to eat healthy portions of fish, fowl, and lamb. Also, pork is a no-no, except for crisp bacon. And encourages people to eat one raw salad a day - - composed of 4 plants that grow above ground to one below. Fried foods, starches and the like are to be avoided. Surprisingly almonds are the stand out as the miracle drug. Cayce says they're a great disease-prevention tool because of it's combination of phosophorus and calcium.
The advice is amazingly detailed.

I own two copies of this book just so I am sure to always have one and can loan one to a friend. I trust the remedies of Edgar Cayce and have used them for over 20 years. I have lots of other books on health, including professional ones for doctors. This book includes all the basic info on diet, exercise and daily living to keep healthy. Having read many books about Edgar Cayce and spent many years experiencing the truth of his work I have great respect for him and trust his suggestions.

This is a wonderful book on how to use the Cayce trance suggestions to maintain a healthy body. The first time I bought it, it happened to arrive while I was suffering with a terrible flu that was going around my community. At the time, my one-month-old baby was being breastfed. I realized I couldn't afford to be sick again with a newborn depending on me, especially since it's not recommended to take medicines while breastfeeding. I also felt wretched because of the painful head pains associated with this particular flu. You can imagine how motivated I was to get and maintain a healthy body.

I began to follow the suggestions in the book immediately--switching to an alkaline-reacting diet, and as soon as I was well enough, incorporating the exercises suggested in the book. These included specific exercises for the morning and others before bed. With two small children, there were many nights I just wanted to crawl in bed, but I kept up with the exercise program even though I was often very tired.

Amazingly, when the next round of flu went through the community, the other members of my family suffered with it but the baby and I sailed through without any symptoms whatsoever. The suggestions in the book, based on Cayce's trance source as put into use by Reilly's expertise as a top-notch physiotherapist, worked!

There's much more in this book than diet and nutrition. There's also the famous Cayce castor oil packs and mixtures of oils for massage recommended for ailments such as arthritis. There's suggestions for increasing beauty and prolonging life.

I like that Reilly quotes from many of the actual Cayce readings and that the publisher included the number of the readings.

This book is a good shortcut past trial and error. It's a bit depressing that a lot of the foods, activities and attitudes we grow up with arn't good for us but it's nice to know what they are. With knowlage one has the ability to plan and re-invent ways to live better.
If you would like to know the effects of your actons, attitudes or foods, this book is for you.

As a Diabetic I can tell you that edgar cayce was the real deal. I've studied the edgar cayce readings themselves and I have many of the books on the edgar cayce readings. The essential books on health, as well as edgar cayce's view on health probably would include this one, Foods for Health and Healing, as well as the encyclopedia of healing by Reba Ann Karp. I would suggest these books to go along with the edgar cayce readings themselves to study the readings if you wish.

Generally speaking, edgar cayce never gave a full discourse on what it meant to be healthy, but he gave "clues" about it. However, when the questioner enquired more into specifics, edgar cayce definitely got more specific in his answers. Anyways, the single biggest key to health is to ALKALIZE!!!! This will take care of probably all health problems that are not mechanical by nature.

Edgar Cayce often talked about purifying and cleansing the alimentary canal through various methods. Food being the single most important way about doing that. Colonics and enemas are probably the second most recommended treatment after changing one's diet to an alkalizing diet and he recommended supplementing colonics with alkaline solutions. This is because most diseases start in the Colon. Some other good books on colon health are books by Dr. Jensen, as well two books on probiotics, "Bacteria for Breakfast" and "Probiotics Revolution" It's also no coincidence that edgar cayce recommended using the famous Castor Oil packs most often over the lower abdomen next to the colon.

Edgar Cayce recommended following an 80% alkaline diet to 20% acid GENERALLY SPEAKING. However, the more sedentary the more alkaline and the more active your lifestyle the more acidic your diet can be.
