I just read a very interesting book, "The Edgar Cayce Handbook For Health Through Drugless Therapy" by Dr. Harold J. Reilly and Ruth Hagy Brod. I was struck by the fact that all of his recommendations fit perfectly with the Keyes program I recommend to prevent gum infections or periodontal disease.

Over the years the name Edgar Cayce has come up repeatedly whenever psychic phenomena is discussed. He was nicknamed the sleeping psychic due to the fact that he would go into a deep sleep like trance and answer peoples specific questions about how to heal their illnesses.

You must of course consider that his recommendation were given in response to an individuals question and may not be right for your particular problem. We are all unique individuals and each of us must find our own way to achieve optimal health. Nevertheless many of his recommendations are interesting and unique.

Getting Rid of Bad Breath In response to a question about how to get rid of bad breath (a classic symptom of gum disease) he recommended swallowing Glyco-Thymoline as an intestinal antiseptic two to three times a day. The dose he recommended was 6 drops in a glass of water.

Glyco-Thymoline is a very old mouthwash which is available in many health food stores. I frequently recommend this in the Water Pik to wash bacteria from the gums. I am sure during this procedure the average patient will swallow some of the wash. Glyco-Thymoline is relatively non-toxic and very anti-bacterial.

Controlling Tooth Decay When asked how to control tooth decay he recommended a massage of the teeth and gums with equal parts of baking soda and salt daily. He urged that a finger be used to work the paste into the gum collar. (The brushes in use at that time were much stiffer than today and therefore less effective in reaching the collar)

He recommended that once a month you add one drop of chlorine to a pint of water and use as a rinse. He cautioned against swallowing and recommended brushing after this rinse.

Dr. Paul Keyes discovered in 1960 that the bacteria Streptococcus Mutans was primarily responsible for tooth decay. The streptococcus bacteria are easily killed by salt.

Here again the psychically channeled instructions appear to fit nicely with the science discovered years later. Chlorine is toxic and for that reason is extremely anti-bacterial. Daily we are urged by the toothpaste companies and the American Dental Association (ADA) to brush with fluoride. Fluoride is far more toxic than chlorine and therefore more dangerous. Even the pro- fluoride ADA recommends that children use a pea sized drop of tooth paste in order to avoid a potential for a toxic dose. Have you ever seen a commercial for toothpaste demonstrate the use of a pea sized drop?

Sudden Onset of Tooth Decay In response to a question about the sudden onset of tooth decay over the last three years he took another approach. He recommended an iodine preparation Atomidine to stimulate the immune system on a cyclical dose. He had them use one drop for five days and then skip two weeks. They were instructed to keep this up for a full year as well as have all the decay tended to and fixed.

Iodine is necessary for the proper functioning of the thyroid. Hypo-thyroid (under functioning) will produce weakness in the immune system. Tooth decay is one symptom that the immune system has not adequately defended you from the bacteria in our world. By having the decay removed there were fewer nests or colonies of bacteria to spread from tooth to tooth and the immune system could better fight the bacteria.

Perhaps the relationship between iodine and fluoride explains why laboratory studies show fluoride increases decay. By ingesting fluoride you can inhibit iodine and therefore the thyroid. Several large blinded human studies and on animals show that fluoride had no beneficial effect in reducing decay and in some studies increased the damage. Remember that fluoride like mercury is a cumulative poison and the less you are exposed to such a poison the better off you will be.

Prickly Ash Bark and Prevention During his trances Cayce frequently recommended Ipsab for gum and teeth problems. The ingredients of Ipsab are primarily prickly ash bark, sea salt and flavorings.

The American Indians used this bark for tooth care and called is "toothache bark". They taught the children to strip a thin sliver of bark from this tree and use it to clean in between the teeth and down in the gum.

The pre-Columbus Indians had very little decay compared to our day but they did have gum disease. By using the anti-bacterial effect of fresh bark they not only cleaned their teeth they medicated them with anti-bacterial cleansers.

Conclusion Over and over ancient wisdom encounters common sense and modern science. Keeping your teeth means keeping them clean. How you achieve that depends on personal choice. I hope this information has been informative and will help you and your family prevent dental problems in the future.

Edgar Cayce (Biography)

Who Was Edgar Cayce?

Edgar Cayce was born in l877 and lived until l945, and for more than 40 years of his life gave what is called a psychic "reading". As a young man he discovered that he had an unusual ability to put himself into an altered state of consciousness. And from this self-induced, altered state of awareness, he was able to answer questions or respond to suggestions which were read to him. In giving a reading he was able to tap a universal level of mind within himself. He seemed to have access to virtually all knowledge.

Of the recorded readings, more than 14,000 in number, roughly two-thirds are physical readings, readings for people who had physical, health problems. They either came to Edgar Cayce or wrote to him, and received a reading which diagnosed the origin of their physical problem and recommended a course of treatment. There are also recorded readings of spiritual and psychological advice, readings about prayer and meditation, and readings about pre-history. Also more than 1,000 dreams were brought to Edgar Cayce over a course of many years and interpreted by this source.

Edgar Cayce was called the "sleeping prophet" and is the most documented psychic of our time. He advocated that we learn to contact our higher selves, and pattern ourselves to become "a channel through which only the Fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of man, the universal Christ Consciousness may be applied in the lives and the affairs of individuals in every way and manner."

Edgar Cayce--The Father of the Holistic Health Movement

"In a trance so deep that he was twice declared clinically dead, Cayce prescribed treatments combining innovative technology with holistic medicine that resulted in full cures more than 90 percent of the time. "

When New York Times best-selling author and investigative journalist Sidney D. Kirkpatrick was first introduced by Nancy Thurlbeck to Edgar Cayce and his phenomenal psychic abilities, Kirkpatrick thought Cayce was a fraud.

Then Kirkpatrick and Thurlbeck paid a visit to the Association of Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach. It was Kirkpatrick's intention to prove that Edgar Cayce did not do what he was claimed to do. Thurlbeck gave him "just enough rope to hang himself." Now, the rest is history--as they say.

Kirkpatrick was bowled over by the huge quantities of evidence to support the truth of Cayce’s abilities.

What Kirkpatrick discovered was that when Edgar Cayce went into trance, he could access information on anything—from the treatment for psoriasis to the color of his subject’s pajamas to world affairs or what life on earth was like 4 million years ago. But Edgar’s abilities did not stop there. Even many Cayce fans were not aware of what Edgar was capable of when he was fully awake. He could not play cards and enjoy it because he knew exactly what was in his opponents’ hands. He could see and read other people’s auras. And he could see and talk with "dead people." Edgar Cayce had the sixth sense--and maybe even the seventh! And he was the real thing!! Life for Edgar and the people around him was one big bizarre roller coaster ride. Visitations from the Archangel Michael which shook the room—or gold coins mysteriously appearing in Edgar’s hand were just a few of the strange manifestations they all had to live with on a daily basis. Only Edgar’s humble and gentle charisma made it possible for those around him to withstand that ride. We have to ask ourselves, "Who was Edgar Cayce and why did he come?" This book provides the answers and much, much more.


Edgar Cayce, born in 1877 in rural Kentucky and educated only through the eighth grade, is known as one of the greatest healers of our time. In a trance so deep that he was twice declared clinically dead, Cayce prescribed treatments combining innovative technology with holistic medicine that resulted in full cures more than 90 percent of the time. Cayce could perform readings without even being in the presence of patients--he simply needed to know their names. From this "sleeping" state, he could also preview the future and describe the past, as well as converse in any language. He advised housewives, corporate executives, Harry Houdini, Ernest Hemmingway's mother (on the topic of her son), and secretly (it is believed) President Woodrow Wilson. Even Marilyn Monroe used his beauty advise.

The ground-breaking information Cayce provided on health food, natural medicines, reincarnation, dreams, and the healing power of the human body have spawned entire industries. He founded a university devoted to psychic research. He built the first hospital devoted exclusively to alternative medicine. And his teachings while in trance would become an inspiration to public figures from Albert Einstein to John Lennon to Steven Spielberg.

The first researcher to have unlimited access to thousands of pages of documentation, including transcripts of nearly every trance session, Sidney D. Kirkpatrick with the help of Nancy Thurlbeck, has written the definitive biography of a simple man with a complex gift--a man who was freakish yet ordinary, powerful yet selfless, legendary yet inscrutable until now.
