Edgar Cayce believed that the first practitioner to consult is the one who inhabits the body being cared for:
YOU! All healing really is self-healing, as the body is what heals itself.
ELECTROTHERAPY In the Cayce Readings, Electrotherapy is a fundamental therapeutic modality. The body itself is an complex electrical system. Imbalances in the energy patterns of the body cause illness. Electrotherapy treatments correct imbalance to allow the body's own natural healing process to heal.
The violet ray appliance is a high voltage, low amperage source of static electricity. The appliance derives its name from the violet color of the electrical discharge that emanates during use. The appliance was recommended in over 900 readings for a wide variety of problems requiring a stimulation to the nervous and circulatory systems.
The device consists of a cylindrical base which is held in the hand. A glass tube is inserted into the end which makes contact with the body. Originally, a diversity of tubes were sold for various applications on almost every portion of the body. Currently, the appliance usually comes with a simple bulb vacuum tube which can be used almost anywhere on the body.LEARN MORE ABOUT VIOLET RAY
The Radial Appliance was fully invented by the late Edgar Cayce. With No Medical Knowledge, he channeled the exact instructions of how to build the radial appliance. It has been described as a meditation unit, stress reducer, bio-electric balancer and tool for spiritual unfoldment.
The Radial Appliance was recommended in 900 readings. That’s more than any other modality: it is the only therapy that was said to be good for everyone.
• Improving meditation and visualization
• Refreshing and realigning the body’s energy systems
• Tuning and balancing one’s vibratory forces
• Improving circulation
• Balancing the nerve forces of the body
• Promoting relaxation
The Radial Appliance is designed to be used at home and comes with instructions. You can use it every day, every other day, a few times a week, or when it is convenient for you. The only requirement is to attach the wires to the next position in the sequence so you don’t repeat the same position. There are 4 positions or 4 ways to attach the Radiac to your body. After you have completed all 4 positions you have completed a cycle. You should attach one position per day for about 30 minutes. A completed cycle is designed to balance the whole body.
This is a general overview of one cycle, the complete details come with your unit:
Day 1: Attach the Red Wire Disc the Right Wrist then attach the Black Wire Disc to the Left Ankle.
Day 2: Attach the Red Wire Disc the Left Wrist then attach the Black Wire Disc to the Right Ankle.
Day 3: Attach the Red Wire Disc the Left Ankle then attach the Black Wire Disc to the Right Wrist.
Day 4: Attach the Red Wire Disc the Right Ankle then attach the Black Wire Disc to the Left Wrist.
This is very important and not very well understood. Never use anyone else’s Radiac. Once you use it no one else can. Something changes in the unit after you use it and it is not compatible with anyone else.LEARN MORE ABOUT RADIAL APPLIANCE
The wet cell device was mentioned some 975 times. Always indicated for specific conditions rather than general use. Some uses were for nerves and incoordination of nervous systems, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, paralysis, Parkinson’s disease, deafness and much more.
“Cayce’s approach to health was holistic. What he was talking about made sense, but no one bothered to test his theories,” notes Thomas. “The paradigm doesn’t fit mainstream practices, the work is ignored by the mainstream medical community.”
The Cayce Wet Cell is a blanket approach to addressing all degenerative disorders. That’s because Edgar Cayce places them all under the category of the deterioration of the central nervous system. Common sense would reveal the truth of this premise which is why it has alluded the allopathic community. The interface of the central nervous system with the blood, lymph and glandular systems also defines the particular application of specific vibrations being introduced via the battery.
Mr. Cayce also spoke of the “Low Form” of electricity as being the driving force behind the Wet Cell, a term which even today has yet to be considered by the others. Suspecting that the Low Form is hemmed in somewhere between the light and magnetic frequencies, I would suggest to the reader that this is the arc of the human covenant. I know of no other apparatus which can achieve these kinds of results in rebuilding the central nervous system. When the time is right, this concept will once again re-emerge.
Edgar Cayce often recommended animated ash and ultra-violet light therapy for persons suffering from cancer. The readings stated that the animated ash would increase the oxygen in the body and assist the immune system in fighting cancer.
After completing a study of most of the readings which called for the
internal use of animated ash, if one Central theme or concept surrounding its use emerges, it seems to be this: the ash was recommended where there was a problem with the blood system.
The typical case in which the animated ash was prescribed involved what Cayce sometimes described as “impoverished” blood, caused by other conditions then existing in the body. The purpose and effect of the ash in these cases was to revitalize the blood by oxygenating and clarifying it.
This renewed blood, in turn, would serve to help the body in its fight against whatever was causing the problem in the first place. The ash, in conjunction with electrotherapy, might then be called a blood stimulant, since it worked to purify this vital fluid. The revitalized blood was then better able to eliminate what was called “used forces,” or drosses in the body, and better able to aid in the assimilation of food necessary for carrying on the normal life processes. In other words, the blood could once again begin to carry on its normal function of removing waste products and supplying nutrients to the cells.
In cases of cancer, for which the ash/electrotherapy combination was very often recommended, the function of the ash seems to be to help the body marshal its own resources to overcome “that which saps the vitality of the body itself,” as Cayce once described cancer. While in one reading Cayce stated that there were 19 different kinds of cancer, in more than one instance he described cancer as basically a breaking down of cellular tissue complicated by poor elimination and assimilation and a “lack of the ability to coagulate used energies.”
In these cases the ash was supposed to help segregate the “used forces” in the body as well as gradually strengthen the body’s vitality by clarifying and purifying the bloodstream. In reading 275-1, given for an individual with malignant cancer, Cayce said “Medicated ash will segregate [the condition] in system,” although reading 23-1 speaks of a hormone which normally should do this job.
HYDROTHERAPY Hydrotherapy is a form of physical therapy which involves the therapeutic use of water in a variety of ways such as Epsom salt baths, sitz baths, hot and cold showers, douching, cabinet sweats, steam baths, fume and vapor baths, enemas, and colonics. Hot and cold packs are also generally included as a form of hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy was frequently recommended by Cayce to stimulate circulation and promote elimination of waste products.
A colonic (as Edgar Cayce so often referred to this procedure) is an internal bath using professional equipment to cleanse the colon. Current scientific evidence shows that a properly functioning colon is beneficial to overall health.
During your colonic, warm filtered water is gently infused into the colon and then released, in a series of fills and flushes that generally continue for 40 to 45 minutes. The equipment is a closed system with disposable tubes and fittings; the out-bound tubing allows you to remain on the treatment table for both infusion and release.
The forty-five-minute procedure involves a gentle infusion of warm, filtered water into the rectum. The water circulates throughout the colon, dissolving and removing its contents, while the client lies on a table. Water temperature and pressure are closely monitored and regulated during a series of fills and releases to aid in the peristaltic action of the colon. As the method involves an enclosed system, the waste materials are removed without the unpleasant odors or discomfort usually associated with enemas.
Epsom salts baths were often recommended for persons suffering from muscular and joint conditions such as rheumatism and arthritis. Although the therapeutic suggestions sometimes varied for individuals depending upon the severity of the condition, here are some general guidelines for using Epsom salts baths.
One of the most popular uses of an Epsom salt bath is to help soothe away muscle aches after a hard workout or a long day of work. Some believe that the chemical composition of the salt—magnesium sulfate—can be absorbed by the skin to help block receptors from feeling the pain.
Epsom Salt Baths are Powerful Anti-Inflammatories
The use of regular Epsom salt baths have been shown to improve the symptoms of many health conditions including athlete’s foot, gout, toenail fungus and sprains, bruises, and muscle soreness. It is also good for anyone dealing with chronic disease or chronic pain to do regular Epsom baths to help detoxify and de-inflame while improving mineral and sulfur balance in the body.
Contraindications to Epsom baths would be if you are pregnant, dehydrated, or have open wounds or burns on your skin. Individuals who are suffering from cardiovascular disease should always consult with a natural health physician who is familiar with the health benefits of Epsom salt baths before starting.
A sitz bath is a form of hydrotherapy in which the hips and buttocks are immersed in water. Sitz baths are used for relief of pain and discomfort in the pelvic area.
Hot and Cold Sitz Bath
Alternate between hot and cold sitz baths wherein the client would go back and forth between the hot and cold tubs up to three times during each session. Here is a description of the alternating hot and cold sitz bath method as described by Joseph and Sandra Duggan in their book Edgar Cayce’s Massage, Hydrotherapy & Healing Oils:
“Two tubs are used that look like large easy chairs. They are designed to keep only the hips and pelvic area in the water while the feet remain on the floor. One tub contains warm water, 100 – 106 degrees, and the other contains cold water, 60 – 65 degrees. Beginning with warm water, one alternates sitting three times for two to four minutes, ending with the cold tub.
A sitz bath can reduce inflammation, improve hygiene and promote blood flow to the anogenital area. Common uses of the sitz bath include keeping the anus clean, reducing inflammation and discomfort caused by hemorrhoids, and healing perineal and vaginal lacerations after vaginal childbirth.
Mild steam baths were often recommended by Edgar Cayce to increase elimination of toxins through the skin and lungs. This form of hydrotherapy is usually given in a steam cabinet. A substance (such as witchhazel) is added to the boiling water in the cabinet to produce a vapor which settles over the body and is absorbed through the pores in the skin. A hot and cold needle shower is typically used after the steam bath to cleanse the sweat and toxins from the skin. A massage is then given to further relax the body and assist with eliminations.
It is usually best to begin gently with little heat to make sure that the body can handle the treatment. Gradually, greater heat can used as the body is able to tolerate it.
Recommended to increase eliminations through the skin and lungs. An essential oil or other substance is added to the steam. It vaporizes then settles on the skin to be absorbed through the pores. The steam cabinet has an opening at the top, allowing for cold cloths to be applied at the base of the neck and forehead to prevent headaches. A tepid shower is taken afterward to wash off the impurities that have been brought to the skin surface.
Having a steam before a massage helps relax muscles and aids in absorption of the massage oils. Not recommended for persons with high blood pressure, heart or kidney problems.
Edgar Cayce consistently emphasized the importance of drinking pure water on a daily basis for health maintenance and healing. In general 6 – 8 glasses of water per day were suggested. In taking the water, be sure to allow it to mix with saliva so as to produce an alkaline reaction in the stomach. The image of “chewing liquids” (even water) was used by Cayce to encourage proper assimilation.
In general, the Cayce readings note that it is beneficial to have water in the stomach as food is digested, hence it may be helpful to drink water before and after meals. However, the caution against using water to “wash down” (bolt) food that has not been thoroughly masticated was made by Cayce on numerous occasions.
Cayce Quotes on Drinking Water
In the matter of diet for the body – these, we find, are quite varied under circumstances and conditions over which the body often hasn’t the control [due to being a traveling man?]. Most of all, train self never to bolt the food. Take TIME to assimilate, masticate, so that ASSIMILATION is well – and we will find that with these kept, with an EVEN balance between those that produce acid and those that make for the alkalin, if well balanced will digest under most all circumstances. Well to drink ALWAYS PLENTY of water, before meals and after meals – for, as has oft been given, when any food value ENTERS the stomach IMMEDIATELY the stomach becomes a storehouse, or a medicine chest that may create all the elements necessary for proper digestion within the system. If this FIRST is acted upon by aqua pura, the reactions are more near normal. Well, then, each morning upon first arising, to take a half to three-quarters of a glass of WARM water; not so hot that it is objectionable, not so tepid that it makes for sickening but this will clarify the system of poisons. This well especially for this body. Occasionally a pinch of salt should be added to this draught of water. (311-4)
