Edgar Cayce on Chicken

When going through the Edgar Cayce’s 14,000+ readings, I try to put them in context. How is our world today different from when the Readings were given in the first half of the 20th Century? Chicken was commonly recommended in the health readings, but today’s factory-farmed birds are nothing like the chicken recommended by Edgar […]

Secrets of the Alkaline Diet

Edgar Cayce regularly emphasized the importance of eating an “alkaline-reacting diet”. In January 2018 I read a few hit-pieces against this dietary philosophy in the mainstream media. The target of their spin was Tom Brady, who is actually doing quite well as the National Football League’s oldest quarterback. The hit pieces pointed out that the […]

Three local grocery stores have bags […]

Upon awakening on Thursday, I checked to see if there were any ‘grocery’ options within walking distance. Erewhon Natural Foods Market seemed promising – I called to verify they were open and trekked right over. I found […]
