Edgar Cayce was perhaps the most famous and most documented psychic of our time. He is known as “The Sleeping Prophet” and “The Father of Holistic Medicine.”
Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) born on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, in 1877, and his psychic abilities began to appear as early as his childhood. As an adult, Cayce would put himself into a state of meditation, connecting with the universal consciousness and from this state, came his “readings”.
For more than 40 years, Edgar would lie down on a couch and go to sleep like state and respond to questions. The sessions, called readings, were carefully transcribed by his secretary and preserved by Edgar Cayce Foundation, Virgina Beach.
Nearly 9000 of over 14,000 recorded readings are health related.
Edgar Cayce's Work The Edgar Cayce Clinic - Arizona
Edgar Cayce Clinic
Drs. William A. McGarey and Gladys McGarey started the A.R.E. Clinic (2009 changed to Edgar Cayce Clinic) in Phoenix, Arizona in 1970.
Of all the miraculous healings accomplished at the clinic for patients who found little relief from conventional medicine. Attributed not only by the Drs. McGarey but from the use of the unconventional remedies and therapies from the readings of Edgar Cayce.
The clinic, after 40 plus years of service regrettably closed its doors January 2010.
At the Edgar Cayce Clinic in Scottsdale, treating illness involves healing a person’s body, mind, and spirit using conventional and alternative medicine.
In 2009, the 40-year-old clinic formerly known as A.R.E. Integrative Medical Wellness Center changed its name to the Edgar Cayce Clinic to better reflect its holistic work, which is based on the approximately 14,000 readings by American psychic Edgar Cayce.
Cayce used alternative medical treatments long before it became a trend, the clinic’s practitioners said. Cayce, known as the father of holistic medicine, recommended treatments such as castor-oil packs chiropractic and massage.
Peter Schoeb, a chiropractor and nutrition counselor, has used Cayce’s teachings for more than three decades. He began his career as a massage therapist and naturopath in his native Switzerland. In 1983, he traveled to the United States and studied with Harold Reilly, a physical therapist who worked with Cayce.
“Ninety percent of the diagnosis lies in listening to the patient, and 10 percent is just confirming with tests,” Schoeb said.
He said the clinic offers a well-rounded approach to healing. The practitioners are not the healers, but the facilitators. Healing takes place within the person coming for help.
“Instead of being doctor and patient, or therapist and patient, we are more tour guides in the line of health and they (patients) need to walk with us. In that walking lies the healing,” Schoeb said.
BARBARA SAINT JOHN
Barbara Saint John, who has been doing hypnosis, behavior modification, grief counseling and other therapies for 35 years, said many patients arrive at the clinic frustrated.
“I don’t think the healings are happening as people anticipate when we go to a physician because a lot of it has to do with their mental state and what they think about life and the stresses in life. I don’t think the doctors spend a lot of time with that,” Saint John said.
DR. LISA WEINRIB
Lisa Weinrib is a medical doctor who ran a private rheumatology practice in Phoenix and Scottsdale for 15 years and is board certified in internal medicine and rheumatology. She has been with the Cayce clinic for six years and uses “holistic counseling” to get to the root of a person’s chronic condition such as Crohn’s disease, asthma, diabetes, and fibromyalgia. She taps into what is known as the akashic records, one of Cayce’s practices. This non-physical hall of records contains a person’s every thought, word and action. Weinrib said she also works with a patient’s angels and guides.
“You throw out logic,” Weinrib said. “You’re working with the unseen. You’re working with energy, and so I tap into this energy.”
She said she works with the energy not only to identify the problem but to heal and resolve it. After energetically clearing out the dust bunnies, so to speak, Weinrib said she recommends a course of action.
Weinrib and Saint John said patients seek alternative treatment because conventional medicine has become more sterile and because they do not have a connection with their doctor.
