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 …

cooking strategies to maximize nutrient availability

Earlier this year I found this book of articles from the old Cayce newsletters (originally published in the 1970’s): I was drawn to a chapter about Mr. Cayce’s advice for foods.

The most dangerous of these substitutions is that of “biodiesel” (commonly sold as “vegetable oil”) for the naturally-saturated fats that humans have consumed for thousands of years. Three local grocery stores have bags …

Packing on pounds with supposedly-healthy prepared food

This year I was drawn to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, and drove to Los Angeles on Wednesday. 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 …

Recognizing and Resolving ‘Birth Trauma’

The last post was about meeting the parents of sickly children. Those parent’s kids demonstrated the importance of Edgar Cayce’s maxim, ‘Mind is the Builder’. I met another parent recently. She was getting something for her kid to eat. I asked ‘how old?’ This woman responded that she has 5 kids. They’ve just started school, …
