Who Was Edgar Cayce?
Edgar Cayce remedies have been around since before he founded the Virginia Beach, Virginia-based Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in 1931. Cayce, who lived from 1877 to 1945, spent more than 40 years of his life giving psychic readings. Most of the people were dealing with some type of illness, for which Cayce developed some natural remedies. Some have lauded him as the father of holistic medicine.

Edgar Cayce Remedies for Acne
Many Edgar Cayce remedies have dietary suggestions, and the late psychic's advice for treating acne is no exception. Cayce recommended that acne sufferers especially concern themselves more with eating foods such as citrus fruits and juices, green vegetables and juices, fish, lamb, whole-wheat bread, and milk.
Topical applications for acne were recommended in about 25 percent of the cases that Cayce reviewed personally. These natural remedies included Cuticura soap and ointment, Black and White creams, and camphorated oil.
Massage was also advised in about 30 percent of Cayce's cases, especially focusing at the area around the spine, Essential oil blends such as mineral oil mixed with rose water or peppermint with distilled water usually accompanied massages. Cayce's A.R.E. offers massage therapy today among other health remedies.

Edgar Cayce Remedies for Moles and Warts
Moles and warts can be frustrating and embarrassing, and there are Edgar Cayce remedies available.
Castor oil, either by itself or mixed with a little baking soda, was one of Cayce's favorite recommendations. Rubbing the solution onto a wart or mole, and then trying to forget about the condition for a few days proved effective in most cases. More challenging moles and warts sometimes warrant dietary changes (such as eating more lamb, citrus fruits, green vegetables, and whole-grain cereals.) In extreme cases Cayce recommended removal by a doctor with an electric needle.

Edgar Cayce Remedies for Cold
While even in the 21st century there is still no cure for the common cold, there are Edgar Cayce remedies that can help alleviate symptoms and possibly speed up recovery.
Eggnog with spirits such as frumenty or red wine with dark bread were recommended as midafternoon snacks. Cayce also advised patients with colds to stop eating meat for the duration of the illness, limiting their intake to a small amount of fish or fowl.
Massages with compounds like cocoa butter or tincture of myrrh and olive oil also proved helpful to a number of Cayce clients.
