Edgar Cayce on Healing Foods

For Body, Mind, and Soul

William A. McGarey, M.D.

Cover of Edgar Cayce on Healing Foods

Discover the wonders that can be found in your diet, the benefits that come about when you understand your body better, and how to overcome the difficulties and roadblocks that may appear as you try to do just that.

Edgar Cayce left behind a legacy of psychic readings, two-thirds of which dealt with physical illnesses and what might be done to restore the body to health. Throughout his suggestions on ways to correct these conditions, Cayce spoke volumes about diet. He saw certain food combinations as helpful, some as harmful. His theme throughout the readings was keep the body and its functions balanced- often by using nutrition.

Dr. McGarey relates this concept to what we eat to give a more special meaning to the kind of diet we choose from day to day. His book is intended to give you a useful and practical source of information regarding what constructive eating is all about. From a common-sense point of view, it is written especially for those who are interested in seeking out their life purpose, in maintaining health, and in overcoming illnesses.

You'll learn the importance of stress, attitudes, emotions, beliefs, habits, prayer, and meditation, and how they affect the use of food and your general health.

The diet you need for full health is as unique as you are. This book will show you how to search creatively for the diet that will suit you best.
