Respiratory Ailments

    Emphysema and charred oak kegs do go together, strange as it may seem.  My story is a combination of a case history and some extracts from the readings which give a great deal of insight into the physiology of the disease (and healing) processes in tuberculosis and cancer.

    One of my favorite patients is afflicted with emphysema.  In October of 1968 I started him using inhalations from a charred oak keg filled part way with apple brandy.  He works as an inspector and drives a lot every day, and ran into trouble with his boss who said his car smelled like a well-kept brewery.  His boss insisted on a letter from me saying that my patient was smelling the fumes and not consuming the liquid.

    The fumes had their effect, however, for it soon developed that while they were not particularly curing the patient of emphysema, they were apparently keeping him free from respiratory infections.  Correspondence with the head of a national distillery confirmed that the fumes where the brandy was aged did, in fact, keep an employee there free from any type of respiratory infections over a period of many, many years.

    Recently I had the opportunity to check up on my number one example of inhalation therapy a la Cayce, and found that he has not been subject to infections of the respiratory tract for the last five and a half years.  He did have the flu once, but it was a generalized thing and did not affect his lungs or throat to any degree.  I did a bit of research on this particular type of therapy (which Cayce suggested for nearly every case of tuberculosis) and found some extracts which I think you will find interesting:

    Prepare a charred oak keg, about a gallon and a half to two gallon keg.  If a gallon and a half, put in same three-fourths gallon of Pure Apple Brandy.

Castor Oil and Animals

    A Virginia veterinarian related to me some of his experiences with the suggestions from the Cayce material.  It seems that many doctors start off with the use of castor oil locally because it is so simple and is always so effective.  It seems that vets occasionally come in contact with raccoons, and ‘coons often bite resulting most of the time in an infection.  The bite is also painful.  Well, my friend, Dr. Helberg, found that he could best treat such a bite by warming castor oil in a pan and putting his finger in the warm castor oil.  The pain goes away immediately, and the finger heals quickly.  How long in the warm castor oil?  Perhaps 15 - 30 minutes.  (I have myself found that the ordinary southwestern scratches - cactus puncture wounds, etc. - respond quickly to liberal application of castor oil locally.)

    But the most fascinating story that comes from the field of animal medicine, as recounted by Dr. Helberg, is one dealing with a goat.  It happened that the doctor was called to see this nanny-goat because of a mastitis.  When he looked at her, he saw that one quarter of the udder was black and blue.  This is a serious prognostic sign, and the goat is usually dead within the next 18 to 24 hours. He used Terramycin and cortisone anyhow, but the farmer wanted to know what else he could do.  He was told to bring the goat inside, to keep her warm, then put a castor oil pack on the affected udder with a hearing pad and leave it in place 30 minutes.  Then he was to repeat this in three hours.  The next day, the doctor got a call from the farmer - the goat was running around normally, healthy and apparently completely recovered.

Tuberculosis and Arthritis

    The patient is the fountainhead of research, according to an editorial in the Journal of the Medical Society of New Jersey.  To me, this means we should never desert the patient when we are looking for instruction - or research - or evidence - or enlightenment.

    The following is a condensation of one patient's story:

    "I will begin by telling you how I first started getting sick.  In the 1950s, I developed rheumatoid arthritis and the doctors put me on Butazolidin.  However, even though I used this drug, my health continued to fail.  Several years later, I began to have trouble with my eyes.  I went to the doctor, but he couldn't find anything wrong with them.  Finally, in 1960, I woke up one morning and couldn't see out of one of my eyes.  I went again to the doctor, and again he could not find anything wrong, but he prescribed Cortisone.  Cortisone has very bad side effects, and for me has especially bad side effects.  I developed glaucoma.  Instead of taking me off the Cortisone, the doctors gave me eye drops to control the glaucoma.  Even though I was using Cortisone, they feared that they were going to have to remove my eye.  They also feared the inflammation spreading to the other eye.  Eventually, they did have to take me off the Cortisone and when they did the glaucoma disappeared. "My health continued to fail and in 1962 I was hospitalized.  The doctors diagnosed tuberculosis of the right lung and a disease called toxoplasmosis, which caused my eye trouble, This disease also damages the central nervous system.  They decided to put me on isonizes [isoniazid?], a tuberculin drug, and para aminosalicyclic acid.  They also gave me sulfa drugs for the toxoplasmosis.  I took these drugs for about two years, but my health didn't improve; as a matter of fact, I grew weaker as time went on.  During this period of time I was unable to do much reading because of my poor vision, but I did read one book called There Is A River.  To this day, I do not know where this book came from or where it went, but it made a great impression on me ...
   "In 1965 I had gotten much worse, and the doctors put me into the hospital again.  They found out that I had tuberculosis of both kidneys and the voice box, and more drugs were prescribed.  I was already on isonizes, para aminosalicyclic acid and tranquilizers, and in addition to these drugs they put me on streptomycin and cycloserine.  Isonizes has terrible side effects.  It causes hallucinations.  At that time I used to have my own little LSD trips in the bedroom.  I thought I was going crazy because I did not know that the drug was causing these hallucinations.  It also affected my equilibrium and the middle ear.  I would lose my balance and was unable to stand up.  When I would turn my head from side to side, the whole room would spin.  As time went on, I developed heart trouble and liver damage and the doctors prescribed digitalis besides all the other drugs.  It was during this period that I wrote to the publisher concerning the book about Edgar Cayce.
   "In the spring of 1966, my doctor took a chest X-ray and it was found that the tuberculin lesion of my lung had doubled in size from the year before.  Despite the fact that I was on all of these drugs, it was obvious that I was getting increasingly worse.  The trouble had started with my lungs and traveled to my kidneys and voice box.  The condition with my right eye had traveled to the cornea of my left eye.  The eye specialists that I had visited felt that I would eventually go blind with this condition.

    "Every time I closed my eyes during this period, I would see death.  That may sound odd to you, but that is what happened.  Sometimes I would fear going to sleep or closing my eyes to take a nap because invariably when I did death would be there grinning at tire.  It was a terrible experience, not knowing which would come first, death or blindness.  I knew that whatever the doctors were doing for me was wrong.  It might have been right for some people, but not for me.

 "This was in August, 1966.  One day my husband came home and I saw the expression on his face.  He had been to the doctor and was told that I would soon die.  They had done all they could for me.  I thought all night long, and the next day, when he went to work, I got down on my knees, and I laid my hands upon the bed, and I said: 'Father, here I am.  I have no one else to turn to.  Will you please help me?  You don't have to heal me.  I really do not expect it.  Just tell me what to do.  Just show me what to do, and I'll do it myself.' I got up and I sat on the side of the bed for awhile and something just as clear as if you were speaking to me right now said: 'Throw all of your drugs away.' Well, that's what I did.  I went into the kitchen and threw away every one of the drugs, even the digitalis.  I went back to the bedroom, and I waited for my husband to come home.  I waited for the earthquake to take place.  He came home, and I heard him in the kitchen rummaging around in the garbage can.  He then came into the bedroom and said: 'What's the matter with you?  Are you out of your mind?  Don't you know you'll die if you don't take the drugs?' He said a few other things which I can't repeat here.  I told him that if I do take the drugs I'll die.  I knew this just as sure as I knew anything in my life.  He then called the doctor, and the doctor in turn called me and said: 'What's the matter with you, are you crazy?  Don't you know you have to take the drugs or you'll die?' Then I asked him: 'If I do take the drugs, will I live?' He said: 'No, I can't tell you that.' I said: 'Well, don't bother me.  This is what I decided to do, and this is what I'm going to do.' I waited for the direction, and it came.  I didn't understand direction the way it is now spoken of in our Search for God groups, but believe me it was working.  I think because I prayed sincerely to God that He did direct me.  I had to fight my husband, the doctor, and my friends.  They all thought that I had lost my mind because of all the strain I had been through.  But I was like a rock.  I said: 'No, I'm not taking the drugs.' I just sat there waiting because I knew something was going to happen.  I didn't know what.  I didn't have the faintest idea what would happen, but after four or five days I received a letter from Virginia Beach acknowledging my interest in a Search for God group and in joining the Association for Research and Enlightenment.  I answered their letter immediately and told them that I was desperately ill with tuberculosis.  I sent my membership fee and asked them if they would send me the folder on tuberculosis.  A week later I received the literature and immediately began to read it.  Edgar Cayce's language, as you know, is difficult to understand, but somehow I managed.  The first week I had written down everything he suggested.  I told my husband that I needed a charred oak keg.  He said: 'What in the name of heaven do you want that for?' I said: 'I have to fill it halfway with apple brandy and breathe this deep into my lungs.' My husband just shook his head. He thought I had picked up some book by some quack and was getting suckered into something.  However, he did humor me.  He did start looking all over for a charred oak keg, but it wasn't easy to find. He finally found the keg in a little Italian section in Brooklyn.  Now we needed pure apple brandy which wasn't easy to find either, since most apple brandies have a grape base.  We had to have an apple brandy made from scratch. (I began the Cayce treatment in September, 1966.) Then I had to find a chiropractor.  I did not know any chiropractor, so I looked in the yellow pages and again I think God was guiding me.  I found a doctor ... who was familiar with the Edgar Cayce literature and agreed to use the method on me.

    "Edgar Cayce had recommended Calcios and Acigest, two medicines used for tuberculosis.  Calcios is ground-up chicken bones and marrow.  The particular company that manufactured both Acigest and Calcios no longer manufactured Acigest.  I wrote for the Calcios and received it, but I was at a loss as to where I might find the Acigest.  I don't know how I found out that Acigest was diluted hydrochloric acid in some form.  I went to my doctor and said I needed diluted hydrochloric acid.  He said: 'What do you need that for?' He thought I was crazy and wouldn't give me the prescription for it.  I got nervous and began to cry until he finally gave me the prescription.  Now I was well on my way.  Edgar Cayce's readings in the Circulating File also recommended that I stay outside in the shade when the sun was shining and try to do a little walking.  In the beginning I wasn't able to do any walking, but gradually I got to the point where I could.  Part of the treatment also included high colonics and massages with peanut oil and olive oil.  This was just the treatment for tuberculosis.  Don't forget that I was in great pain with the arthritis and suffering with my eyes, liver, lungs and kidneys    "After having spent a great deal of time in hospitals and numerous consultations, I was never advised to follow a special diet.  Eat a regular diet they told me. Edgar Cayce emphasized that I must eat a great deal of vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables and salads, drink a lot of orange juice and eat only whole wheat bread products, drink egg nog and beef juice and eat only lamb, chicken and fish.  I was absolutely not to be allowed beef, pork or sweets.
 "In February, 1967, 1 went to ... my family doctor.  He took X-rays of my lungs.  He called me up the next day and told me he could not even find a scar on my lungs.  When my husband came home, I told him what the doctor had said.  My husband, needless to say, was shocked because I was still very weak.  My attitude had changed.  I used to cry every day of my life; now I was optimistic, enthusiastic and full of bounce.  There was just something about this treatment that did this for you.  My husband, however, called the doctor and asked him to take the new X-rays to the hospital and compare them to the others.  My doctor did this and called in a consultant to verify his findings.  The results were the same - no scar tissue.  He then tested my blood.  When the results of this test proved negative, he put me in the hospital in April 1967, for a complete and thorough examination.  They started a series of tests.  They put dye in my blood stream and took X-rays of my kidneys that way.  They also took blood tests and urine tests every day.  They did a cystoscope on my kidneys and took X-rays while they were doing that.  After a week, the doctor came into my room with the results of the tests.  He sat down on the chair and said: 'I don't believe this, but you are well.' And he just shook his head.  I said: 'I know, I know,' but he didn't talk any more l just got up and walked out.  I think the shock was too much for him.  I have not taken any drugs since and my heart, for all intents and purposes, is all right.  I have no evidence of arthritis.  I am still blind in my right eye, but now I no longer have any trouble with my left, so whatever this disease was, it also subsided.  It took me some time to get my strength back.  As a matter of fact, I think I am still getting it back, but nevertheless you can see that I am not sick."

Pruritus

    A fifteen-year-old girl was taken to Marian Brockway, a cooperating doctor, with a serious skin problem associated with constant pruritis; she had been under the care of various specialists her entire life. Her therapy program included a strict diet avoiding meats, milk, dairy products, cereals, starches and sweets.  She was given saffron tea regularly, and was treated with manipulations.  Three months showed no improvement.  The parents, at the suggestion of their doctor, called the A.R.E. Clinic.  We suggested the addition of elm water (slippery elm bark in water).  Another five months passed with several flare-ups, but then a gradual improvement was noted.  Now, after another year of continuing the same regimen, the mother writes that "our daughter is now able to lead an almost normal life and is so much improved."

    In the circulating file on Skin: Pruritus (Itching), there are several readings on the problem this young lady was experiencing.  One man had been suffering constant, severe itching for many weeks.  The causes were enumerated as a thinning of the walls of the jejunum due to lack of proper "reactions," and the resultant condition was contamination of the blood supply as it coursed through the walls of the small intestine.  This in turn brought about a disturbed circulation and a subcutaneous irritation interpreted as itching.  In other words, it was a problem with eliminations.  For this person a dietary regimen, small quantities of olive oil by month, local applications, and osteopathic adjustments were recommended (437-7).  In another reading, the first two paragraphs explain a causation of itching.  This twenty-four-year-old man complained of intractable itching most of the time.

    As we find, there are those disturbances in the chemical processes of the body through the lack of proper eliminations or drainages being set tip through the whole system, so that poisons which should be carried off through the alimentary canal, or through the activity of the kidneys and bladder are at times eliminated through the respiratory system.
    These, by those activities through the body cause chemical changes; and these have been made for pressures in the segments along the spine where minor lesions have formed, especially in the areas from the first of the dorsals, or first the third cervical, then through the upper dorsal and the area of the ninth dorsal ...  (5157-1)

Castor Oil for Drug Overdose

    The use of castor oil in treating drug overdose is perhaps the latest therapeutic triumph registered by the plant, which the imaginative people of the Middle Ages called the Palma Christi.  It has been reported from Canada (by Dr. Michael Diamond) and from the University of Medicine in Miami, Florida, that individuals who have attempted suicide by taking large overdoses of drugs are being given quantities of castor oil greatly exceeding the ounce or two usually taken as a cathartic or for inducing labor in pregnant women.  Nearly a pint is administered twice a day, and patients who were comatose and expected to remain so for four or five days recovered in 24 hours.  Some physicians believe that the castor oil absorbs the drugs, quickly removing them from the system.  Thus the harmful effects of the body's prolonged exposure to drugs are prevented.  Some doctors add charcoal tablets to the castor oil; this acts as a detoxifying agent and enhances the curative effect.  This treatment could well save the lives of many who have taken large drug overdoses.

Cayce reading 2842-2


Castor Oil Stories: Calcium Deposits and Eye Irritation

    A woman from Minnesota wrote recently that Cayce "often had suggested castor oil, and I decided to try it for removing a calcium deposit lump on my foot.  My doctor had suggested surgery ...  I rubbed it once daily for about ten minutes, and within three weeks it was completely gone!  Later I decided to try the same treatment again on a large wart on my forehead.  It took about four weeks for that to disappear."

    Another correspondent, writing from Ontario, Canada, decided to use castor oil locally for an intense irritation of the tissues surrounding the eyes.  "At first," she wrote, "I tried putting the saturated pads in position oil the closed eyelids for several minutes, and was sufficiently encouraged by the results to decide oil an overnight application, with a light bandage to hold the pads in position.  The complete success of the experiment was remarkable, dispelling not only the irritation but the general lassitude that accompanied the condition.

Almonds for Cancer

    Ever since we left Virginia Beach, I have had in mind putting down on paper, as you requested - the story of my mother [5009], and the polyps and the almonds, so here goes:

    In July 1957, my mother was operated on for a malignant mass in the intestines.  The surgeon removed a segment of bowel to which was attached a polyp, as well as the mass.  He told my brother and me that he would have liked to have removed also a further segment on which two or three more polyps (benign, of course) were located but he feared she could not have stood that much nerve shock.  He said he wished to watch closely by x-ray the polyps every three months.  Subsequently, I urged Mother - as soon as she was out of the hospital - to eat several raw almonds a day - whether she believed in them or not (and although she tends to discount and negate a lot she was scared enough to heed me!).  In three months the x-ray pictures showed the remaining polyps "somewhat smaller" - the doctor reported.  In another three months the doctor said he couldn't discern any polyps at all in the x-ray pictures and was so pleased that he changed her periodic x-ray pictures from every three months to every six months.  In another year - he changed to x-ray photos only once yearly.  It has almost been 31/2 years now since her surgery and there has been no return of any trouble or of any polyps (and her last x-ray photos were of her entire body-torso as well as abdominal region).  So, this is a good report for "the almond."

Bed Down with Castor Oil

    Castor Oil stories continue to be an almost daily occurrence in our experience.  One of our patients who has used castor oil packs rather extensively became concerned about his landlord, who is a widower and who was diagnosed after a stroke as having high blood pressure and a large abdominal aortic aneurysm.  He was in constant pain from it, and the medicines he obtained from the medical center where he was treated only seemed to make him worse.  The advocate of castor oil packs finally convinced his friend to try using the packs on his abdomen in spite of the fact that the landlord couldn't understand how in the world something like that would have any effect.
   After less than a week of using the packs, the pain had subsided so much that the landlord waxed enthusiastic.  He waxed so much, in fact, that he started buying castor oil by the gallon.  He purchased several yards of wool flannel and rigged up his bed like no prescription I have ever given.  Over the mattress cover, he placed a large plastic cover.  Then came several layers of flannel - then two more layers of flannel, then a blanket on top of that.  The room was always heated, even while the landlord slept.  Then he poured castor oil on the flannel over the entire bed and climbed in between the several layers of wool flannel.  Every day he would add some castor oil to the bed, and apparently when the whole setup became too old to be of value, he would discard the blanket, the flannel, etc., and bring in some new materials.
    The story would just be humorous - even if true, which it is - if he derived no significant benefits from the treatments.  He didn't even wipe off the oil from the skin when he got up in the morning.  Truly a monumental experiment for one man.  But the experimenter still continues to see his doctor regularly, tells him what he is doing, and feels better than he has in years.  Now he is able to do his gardening, do the carpentering needed around his place, and recently even climbed up on the roof to fix a leak.  His physical condition is better; his blood pressure apparently is improved; and he has a new life in front of him.

    He did his own personal research project after reading much about the use of castor oil as given in the Cayce readings in the booklet, Edgar Cayce and the Palma Christi.  Healings of the body indeed may come about in many ways and manners.

Alcoholism

    An alcoholic for more than 20 years is the description one of our correspondents gave herself in a research report which she submitted recently.  But she used castor oil packs on her abdomen for an entirely different reason four years ago.  It seemed that she had developed a severe abdominal pain.  She did not consult her doctor, so her own diagnosis of "probably an intestinal disorder" will have to suffice, no matter how inadequate.  She reports that her pain lessened a little each day, as she applied the packs on a twice daily routine.  An apparent constipation was thoroughly corrected on the second day, but she continued the packs for a period of two weeks.

    The most remarkable result of her own little adventure in consciousness, however, is the real point of this story.  She adds as a postscript to her report that "Since the day I first used oil packs, I have not touched a drop of liquor - nor have I had the desire to do so. I was an alcoholic for more than 20 years.  I used to drink myself to sleep every single night."

    My question is: What is it that happens to people that makes a simple act of healing turn their lives into a new channel of living?  Why should applications of castor oil packs rival Alcoholics Anonymous in this particular event in time and space?  Life offers us a multitude of unanswered questions, doesn't it?

Respiratory Ailments

    Emphysema and charred oak kegs do go together, strange as it may seem.  My story is a combination of a case history and some extracts from the readings which give a great deal of insight into the physiology of the disease (and healing) processes in tuberculosis and cancer.

    One of my favorite patients is afflicted with emphysema.  In October of 1968 I started him using inhalations from a charred oak keg filled part way with apple brandy.  He works as an inspector and drives a lot every day, and ran into trouble with his boss who said his car smelled like a well-kept brewery.  His boss insisted on a letter from me saying that my patient was smelling the fumes and not consuming the liquid.

    The fumes had their effect, however, for it soon developed that while they were not particularly curing the patient of emphysema, they were apparently keeping him free from respiratory infections.  Correspondence with the head of a national distillery confirmed that the fumes where the brandy was aged did, in fact, keep an employee there free from any type of respiratory infections over a period of many, many years.    Recently I had the opportunity to check up on my number one example of inhalation therapy a la Cayce, and found that he has not been subject to infections of the respiratory tract for the last five and a half years.  He did have the flu once, but it was a generalized thing and did not affect his lungs or throat to any degree.  I did a bit of research on this particular type of therapy (which Cayce suggested for nearly every case of tuberculosis) and found some extracts which I think you will find interesting:

    Prepare a charred oak keg, about a gallon and a half to two gallon keg.  If a gallon and a half, put in same three-fourths gallon of Pure Apple Brandy.
    This keg should be so prepared that there would be two small openings in one end.  One would act only as a vent when inhaling the fumes of the evaporated Brandy into the throat and lungs from the other opening, which would be prepared with a small tube - either of rubber or metal, or glass - that will not touch the brandy, but open into the vacuum above same, so that the fumes from the brandy may be inhaled two or three times a day.  This should be kept where it will evaporate more quickly than ordinarily; not so much heat as to cause too great an evaporation, but where there is sufficient to create something more than the ordinary evaporation.  Keep the vents tightly corked when not in use.   (2978-1)


    Inhale these fumes 2 or 3 times a day.  In the beginning, do not inhale too much.  Do inhale it, do not swallow it.  While it will not hurt to swallow it, it is not as helpful to the body.  The gas will not only act as an antiseptic, but will, with the properties that should be increased in the body, aid the change in the circulation, aiding these chemicals in their proper proportion to the body assimilation and the body activity, or the whole of the digestive forces, and eliminate the cause of infection in the lungs proper, and we will find it will gradually heal those areas where at present there are openings, though not a great deal of live tubercle, but the adhesions as have been indicated are the more irritating for deep breathing.   (5097-1)

    In discussing the problems found most commonly in tuberculosis, Cayce suggests that the basic findings are a systemic alkalosis (more accurately, portions of the body being too alkaline), and a problem with assimilation of foodstuffs into a circulatory system that lacks a proper activity in the pulmonary system itself, mostly due to the acid-alkaline balance.  There is much more to his discussion relative to etiology and physiology, but this is a glimpse.

    The natural effect of any infection through the pulmonary system is to destroy the activity of that production between the blood flow as related to the acid and alkalinity of the system.    Hence we find that in those systems where there is the excess of destructive tissue in the pulmonary system, there is a lack of the hydrochloric acid in portions of the system.
    Hence these properties are added in a manner in which there is the effectiveness through the intestinal system, and the assimilating system; so that we will have less reinfection in the blood stream, see? . . .
    These properties, then, become effective in any system where there are the infections, or reinfections - as of tubercular or cancerous natures.  However, there are the needs for other lobules that are prepared for conditions where there is a segregation.  The opposite effect exists in a system, of course, with tuberculosis and cancer.  For one is a separation, the other is a segregation.   (1548-2)

Well at least you care about breathing?
Your point-of view-your angle.You can figure or put a mathematical formula to it in terms of numbers,but then spend your entire life theorizing that point as your philosophy to others and yourself.

Breathing is important.
If you stop, even for a short while, you will die.
Our body is like a faithful servant, working tirelessly for our benefit, even without our knowing, despite our abuse.

Yes that's true,quite naturally.As like many other functions that work together,but breathing may also come as a second nature to many people likened to love because love and breathing go hand in hand and in this love thus becomes their lifeline so to speak.essentially.

Castor Oil for Cancer Pain

    Pain in the terminal cancer patient is perhaps the most feared complication of neoplastic diseases in the human being.  One wonders where the pain actually originates-for pain is perhaps the most difficult symptom to pin down and the least understood.  Methods of cancer therapy derived from unorthodox sources seem to produce some help in this direction.  In my own experience with cancer patients who were too far advanced with the disease to be helped by any of the therapies available, I have seen one traditional aid bring much relief from pain during the terminal days.  Quite recently, a 62-year-old man developed a cancer of the brain.  By the time he came under medical observation, it was quite advanced; then, a second malignancy was discovered in the wall of the bladder.  Weight loss had come rapidly, and the only therapy offered him was chemotherapy.  When the family consulted us, the patient was terminal, in bed and obviously had not long to go.  He was advised to use castor oil packs on the abdomen.  He had not used any pain medication up to that point, and remained pain-free until twenty-four hours before he passed away.  Then he developed some pain in one flank.  The castor oil pack was applied locally there, too, and he became comfortable once again.
    An earlier instance of the use of these packs came nearly twenty years ago, when I was called upon to care for a woman who had a large abdominal cancer which was far advanced when I first saw her.  She had become unable to care for herself.  She refused surgery of any kind and went into a rest home, since she had no living relatives.  There she received coffee enemas and abdominal castor oil packs daily for the next forty days, until her death.  She had no pain at any time.  One wonders if these cases - and I'm sure I am not alone in observing this - are simply coincidences, or does a soothing application with particular vibrations bring about a reaction in the autonomic nervous system of the lymphatic system which eliminates the situation that causes pain?  At times there seem to be more cases that deviate from the rule than there are ones that obey it.

Healing Arthritis - Peanut Oil and Castor Oil

    Biochemical bases of understanding the functioning of the human body may have been adequate for the mind of the physician for many years here in the western part of the world, but it can no longer stand the test of experience, reason, and pure logic.  For instance, how can oil achieve a healing effect?  Witness these two stories, both of which deal with arthritis:

    From Pittsburgh, Pa., I quote this: "In reading Jess Stearn's Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet, I noted with much interest his references to arthritis and the use of pure peanut oil.  As a rheumatoid arthritic I have found it to be of great benefit to my condition.  After using peanut oil as a massaging oil for several years, I have to agree with Cayce's belief that it not only lubricates but heals as well.  I am sure that had I known about the oil in this use I would have been spared much misery.  Why isn't the use of peanut oil to reduce joint inflammation and pain in arthritis better known?  Does the medical profession spurn it as a home remedy?"

    From California: "Mother had arthritis so bad she was committed to the hospital.  She was there for two weeks and released with no apparent help.  The arthritis was centered in her fingers which were doubled back in her palms - she didn't think she would be able to open up her fingers again.  Father brought her home and started a treatment of hot castor oil - rubbing her hands, arms, and shoulders and legs three times a day.  Within a period of three to four months her condition improved to the extent she could walk, use her arms, and her hands straightened out and today she is completely cured.  She was 76 years old when she was at her worst and is now 81."
