This comprehensive Edgar Cayce diet and nutrition guide is your road map to better health. The late Christian mystic and seer Edgar Cayce emphasized the biblical view of the body as temple for the spirit. The task of sustaining the body, through good nutrition and other means, is therefore a spiritual responsibility. Cayce gave thousands of psychic readings addressing health and nutrition. Today, scientific research has validated many of the dietary recommendations proposed by Cayce, notably his consistent admonitions to substantially increase the intake of vegetables and fruits. Food fads come and go, but the Cayce diet stands the test of time as a sound, well-balanced nutrition plan which supplies all necessary nutrients in a form that is easily assimilated by the body. Nourishing the Body Temple provides a complete overview of the principles of healthy eating, synthesized from the Cayce readings by a professional nutritionist who explains them from the perspective of modern nutritional science.
Discussed are a wide range of topics, including enzymes, pH balance, vitamins, minerals, food combining, vegetarian diet, and medicinal foods. This book also gives you concise health information on topics such as:
* fruits, vegetables, and juicing
* raw food power
* seasonings, sweeteners, and beverages
* meat and dairy products
* fats and oils
* the special nutritional value of sea vegetables
* preserving nutrients in the cooking process
* power-boosting the immune system through an alkaline diet
* balancing weight naturally
A section of the book addresses the use of foods and supplements for nutritional needs during pregnancy and lactation, as well as for babies, young children, and teens.

Introduction to Edgar Cayce's Holistic Approach to Nutrition.

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) is known as the world's best-documented psychic, whose legacy includes over 14,000 verbatim transcripts of psychic discourses catalogued in the library of the Association for Research and Development in Virginia Beach, VA. The topics of the Cayce readings, as these discourses are called, range from metaphysical issues and spiritual development to earth change predictions and medical conditions.

More than half of the readings address health concerns and are based on natural therapies and remedies. Many of these have been successfully tried and tested by medical professionals and in clinical settings. Nutrition is considered to be an important link in Cayce's holistic approach to health care.

The following excerpt taken from Nourishing the Body Temple provides an explanation of Edgar Cayce's holistic approach to nutrition:

"In the Cayce readings, diet is featured prominently as both a preventative and a therapeutic measure. For nearly each ailment he was asked about, Cayce suggested dietary adjustments, along with other therapies and remedies. Although much of this nutritional advice was offered to individuals with differing biochemical constitutions and specific pathological conditions, there are many common elements which form the basis of what students of the readings have termed the Cayce diet.

The Cayce diet represents one of many links in the holistic philosophy of the readings. The word holistic is derived from the Greek holos, which translates into whole, or complete. Holistic healing recognizes and honors the essential unity of body, mind, and spirit, as well as the interrelationship between an individual's state of health and his or her environment.

The Cayce readings on diet and health clearly project this philosophy. As important as what we feed the body are the thoughts that we feed the mind. Reading 288-38 gives us the key to this important concept: "What we think and what we eat - combined together - make what we are, physically and mentally." The vibrational energy of the food interacts with the mental energy created by our thoughts, and they are both reactive to each other. Together, they create the aspect of our being that represents us in this lifetime upon the earth. With our intentions and actions, we choose to allow certain foods and thoughts to enter our bodies and minds, thereby continuously directing the re-creation of our mental and physical selves. Whether we realize it or not, we are cocreators with God, as Cayce tell us in reading 2246-1: "Thus is each soul, each entity, a cocreator with that universal consciousness ye call God." With this concept in mind, we can look upon diet as one of the tools available to us in this glorious act of cocreation."
