Portrat af Edgar Cayce

Five individuals participated in a 10-day live-in instructional/treatment program in April, 1997, in which they were taught the elements of the Edgar Cayce therapies for asthma. Fem personer deltog i en 10-dages live-i instruktions / behandling program i april 1997, hvor de blev undervist i elementer af Edgar Cayce behandlinger for astma. Asthma is a disorder in which the airways of the lungs become either narrowed or completely blocked, impeding normal breathing. Astma er en sygdom, hvor luftvejene i lungerne bliver enten indskrænket eller helt blokeret, hvilket hæmmer den normale vejrtrækning. The Cayce perspective is that the causes of asthma are varied, and include spinal problems (ie, osteopathic lesions) and toxicity, often related to the digestive system. Den Cayce Perspektivet er, at årsagerne til astma er varierede og omfatter spinal problemer (dvs. osteopatisk læsioner) og toksicitet, ofte relateret til fordøjelsessystemet. The therapeutic approach was a complementary one, based on the information in the Edgar Cayce readings. Den terapeutiske tilgang var en komplementær en, baseret på oplysningerne i Edgar Cayce aflæsninger. The project explicitly did not require participants to change their current therapies or medications. Projektet udtrykkeligt ikke kræve, at deltagerne til at ændre deres nuværende behandlinger eller medicin. The principal therapies included dietary changes, chiropractic adjustments and use of a hand-held vibrator along the spine, a hydrotherapy/cleansing regimen, and occasional use of Calcidin (calcium iodate). De vigtigste behandlingsformer indgår kostændringer, kiropraktik justeringer og brug af en håndholdt vibrator langs rygsøjlen, en hydroterapi / udrensning regime, og lejlighedsvis brug af Calcidin (calcium iodat). The participants then returned home to continue these therapies for six months, submitting daily logs of compliance with the protocol. Deltagerne derefter vendte hjem for at fortsætte disse behandlinger i seks måneder, indsende daglige logfiler af overholdelsen af ​​protokollen. See the copy of the home treatment protocol at the end of this report. Se kopi af behandling i hjemmet protokollen i slutningen af ​​denne rapport.

Asthma symptoms were evaluated at the beginning of the program and after six months. Astma symptomer blev evalueret i starten af ​​programmet, og efter seks måneder. A follow-up questionnaire was sent to all participants after one year. Et opfølgende spørgeskema blev sendt til alle deltagere efter et år. Three of the five people returned for the six month follow-up in October, 1997. Tre af de fem mennesker tilbage for de seks måneders opfølgning i oktober 1997. Subjects who followed the protocol consistently (but none completely or perfectly) averaged moderate to major improvement in asthma symptoms over six months, based on subjective questionnaires. Forsøgspersoner, som fulgte protokollen konsekvent (men ingen helt eller perfekt) i gennemsnit moderat til betydelig forbedring af astmasymptomer mere end seks måneder, baseret på subjektive spørgeskemaer. At the one-year follow-up, four of the five subjects reported moderate to major improvement in quality of life related to their asthma. På et-års follow-up, fire af de fem emner, rapporterede moderat til væsentlig forbedring i livskvalitet relateret til deres astma. The degree of improvement was clearly related to the degree of compliance with the protocol. Graden af ​​forbedring var klart relateret til graden af ​​overensstemmelse med protokollen.

Below are case reports based on the initial questionnaires and the six-month and one-year follow-up questionnaires. Nedenfor er tilfældet rapporter baseret på de oprindelige spørgeskemaer og de seks-måneders og et års follow-up spørgeskemaer. Comments from letters and interviews are included as well. Kommentarer fra breve og interviews er også inkluderet.

AS#1 AS # 1

AS#1 is a 44-year-old woman, a studio artist. Som # 1 er en 44-årig kvinde, et studie kunstner. Her asthma began 9 years previously. Hendes astma begyndte 9 år tidligere. Her symptoms at the beginning of the project were the most severe of any of the participants, and were highly disabling. Hendes symptomer i starten af ​​projektet var den mest alvorlige af nogen af ​​deltagerne, og var meget invaliderende. Although she did not begin the protocol for several months, and was not able to follow it well, she had major improvements from the elements that she did follow. Selv om hun ikke begyndte protokollen i flere måneder, og var ikke i stand til at følge det godt, hun havde store forbedringer fra de elementer, som hun fulgte.

She described her symptoms at the initial program: "Frequent bronchospasms of great degree of severity. Hospitalized seven times in the last two years." Hun beskrev hendes symptomer på det oprindelige program: "Frequent bronkospasmer af stor sværhedsgrad Indlagte syv gange i de sidste to år.." She was bothered by the side effects of the steroids she was taking, but the rebound effect was so serious she was unable to go off them. Hun var generet af bivirkninger af steroider var hun tager, men rebound effekten var så alvorlig, at hun ikke var i stand til at gå fra dem.

For her previous treatments she wrote, "I have tried nearly all asthma medications on the market in the last eight years." For hendes tidligere behandlinger skrev hun, "Jeg har prøvet næsten alle astma medicin på markedet i de sidste otte år." She was currently on Accolate (1 month), Dexacort (5 months), Proventil inhaler (8 years), and Atrovent inhaler (1 year). Hun var i øjeblikket på Accolate (1 måned), Dexacort (5 måneder), Proventil inhalator (8 år), og Atrovent inhalator (1 år). In addition, she had tried chiropractic treatments and acupuncture. Desuden havde hun prøvet kiropraktik behandlinger og akupunktur. She wrote, "Because of the complexity of my response, I desperately want to try the Cayce remedies. I have tried some of them on my own, but I need a more comprehensive approach." Hun skrev, "På grund af kompleksiteten af ​​mit svar, desperat Jeg vil gerne prøve Cayce retsmidler. Jeg har prøvet nogle af dem på min egen, men jeg har brug for en mere omfattende tilgang."

AS#1 did not return for the six-month follow-up. Som # 1 ikke tilbage for de seks-måneders opfølgning. During the initial program, AS#1 had a severe asthma attack that required hospitalization, so she was not able to complete the program. I løbet af det oprindelige program, havde som # 1 et alvorligt astmaanfald, der krævede indlæggelse, så hun var ikke i stand til at gennemføre uddannelsen. It was probably a rebound from her attempt to eliminate the use of steroids. Det var sandsynligvis en rebound fra hendes forsøg på at eliminere brugen af ​​steroider. When she returned home, she was unable to comply with most of the treatment protocol, but she did try Calcidin, the calcium-iodine compound that Cayce recommended for acute asthma attacks. Da hun kom hjem, var hun ude af stand til at opfylde de fleste af behandlingen protokollen, men hun prøvede Calcidin, calcium-jod stof, der Cayce anbefales til akutte astmaanfald. As the report below indicates, she credits Calcidin for allowing her to eliminate steroids. Som rapporten nedenfor viser, hun kreditter Calcidin for at tillade hende at eliminere steroider. Several months into the program, when she began to follow the Cayce diet, she also had notable improvement. Flere måneder i programmet, da hun begyndte at følge Cayce diæt, hun havde også bemærkelsesværdig forbedring.

She did fill out the one-year follow-up questionnaire. Hun gjorde udfylde et-års follow-up spørgeskema. She rated her asthma symptoms as "Much improved," and her other symptoms as "Much improved." Hun vurderet hendes astma-symptomer som "meget bedre", og hendes andre symptomer som "meget bedre." She also rated her attitudes/emotions as "Much improved." Hun har også vurderet hendes holdninger / følelser som "meget bedre." She had decreased her asthma medications, and reported "Much decreased" side effects. Hun havde nedsat hendes astma medicin, og rapporterede "Much faldt" bivirkninger. On the initial "Asthma Quality of Life" questionnaire she scored 87 points; on the one-year follow-up she scored 35 points, a 52-point improvement. På den første "Astma Quality of Life" spørgeskema hun scorede 87 points, og på den et-års follow-up hun scorede 35 point, en 52-point forbedring.

As noted above, for the first several months, the only aspect of the protocol with which she complied was the use of Calcidin. Som nævnt ovenfor, for det første flere måneder, var det eneste aspekt af den protokol, som hun overholdt brugen af ​​Calcidin. In the last few months she also worked on her diet. I de sidste par måneder har hun også arbejdet på hendes kost.

Her comments at the one-year follow-up: Hendes kommentarer på et-års follow-up:

"Most significant for me has been the use of Calcidin. For years, with the aid of my pulmonary specialist, I had been trying to eliminate the use of steroids. In spite of everything we tried, I had been unable to overcome the rebound effects from steroid withdrawal. I cannot describe the terrible debilitation even the least amount of steroid use had on my life since my diagnosis of adult onset asthma in 1989. "De fleste væsentlige for mig har været anvendelsen af ​​Calcidin. Årevis, ved hjælp af min lunge specialist, havde jeg forsøgt at eliminere brugen af ​​steroider. På trods af alt, hvad vi prøvede, havde jeg ikke været i stand til at overvinde rebound effekt fra steroid tilbagetrækning. Jeg kan ikke beskrive den frygtelige svækkelse selv den mindste mængde steroid brug haft på mit liv, siden min diagnose for voksne debut astma i 1989.
"My physician switched me to a new, non-steroidal medication in August 1997, but personally, I feel I still could not have eliminated the use of the steroid without the help of Calcidin. I took it as often as the sense of "asthma crisis" occurred, several times a day for a few weeks, then once a day for about another month. I still take it several times a month on days when my asthma, inexplicably, is worse. I am usually back to my ‘normal’ maintenance regimen within 24 hours. "Min læge, skiftede jeg til en ny, non-steroide medicin i august 1997, men personligt, jeg føler jeg stadig ikke kunne have elimineret brugen af ​​steroid uden hjælp fra Calcidin. Jeg tog det så ofte som den følelse af" astma krise "opstod, flere gange om dagen for et par uger, derefter en gang om dagen for omkring en måned. jeg stadig tage det flere gange om måneden på dage, hvor min astma, uforklarligt, er værre. jeg som regel tilbage til min â € ~ normalâ € ™ vedligeholdelse regime inden for 24 timer.
"Late February 1998, I finally began to experience a sense of normalcy for the first time in years. I expanded my support group to include friends to help specifically with the diet. Though I have yet to eat a ‘perfect’ Cayce diet, the effect on my asthma has been remarkable. The simple reduction of refined sugar products is especially notable in its effects. "Slutningen af ​​februar 1998, jeg endelig begyndte at opleve en følelse af normalitet for første gang i år. Jeg udvidet min støtte gruppe til også at omfatte venner til at hjælpe specifikt med kosten. Selvom jeg har endnu ikke spise en â € ~ Perfecta € ™ Cayce kost, effekten på min astma har været bemærkelsesværdig. Den simple reduktion af raffinerede sukker produkter er især bemærkelsesværdig i sine virkninger.
"As I make greater recovery, I look forward to including the rest of the recommendations. I anticipate reducing my medications even more so. "Som jeg gøre større opsving, ser jeg frem til, herunder resten af ​​anbefalingerne. Jeg forventer at reducere min medicin endnu højere grad.
"I cannot thank the Meridian Institute enough. I have my life back." "Jeg kan ikke takke Meridian-instituttets nok. Jeg har mit liv tilbage."

A later comment from AS#1: "A ‘little healing’/a big, big deal: I rode my mountain bike for twenty five minutes last week." En senere kommentar fra AS # 1: "En â € ~ lidt healingâ € ™ / a big, big deal:. Jeg kørte min mountainbike i 25 minutter i sidste uge"

During the initial program, the most notable response was of his digestive system to the cleansing regimen of diet, castor oil packs, and a colonic irrigation. Under det første program, var den mest bemærkelsesværdige reaktion af hans fordøjelsessystem til udrensning regime af diæt, ricinusolie packs, og en colon kunstvanding. He experienced substantial relief of his indigestion. Han har oplevet betydelig lindring af hans fordøjelsesbesvær.

Han gjorde ikke brug af Calcidin eller have massage.

His comments at the one-year follow-up: Hans kommentarer på et-års follow-up:

"Asthma has improved. It is hard to rate the information we received. But getting a look at the full circle or complete picture helped me a lot. Getting together with other asthmatic people to talk and discuss things." "Astma er blevet forbedret. Det er svært at vurdere de oplysninger, vi har modtaget. Men at få et kig på den fulde cirkel eller komplet billede hjulpet mig meget. Sådan kommer du sammen med andre astmatiker folk til at tale og diskutere tingene."

AS#3 AS # 3

AS#3 is a 58-year-old woman, and is retired. Som # 3 er en 58-årig kvinde, og er pensioneret. She followed the protocol moderately well during the first six months, and reported moderate improvement.

Her asthma began when she was 10 years old. Hendes astma begyndte, da hun var 10 år gammel. She was free of symptoms from about 18 to 30 years of age, and then for about a month following the death of her husband. Hun var fri for symptomer fra omkring 18 til 30 års alderen, og så for omkring en måned efter sin mands død. She wrote, "Freedom from asthma started when I left home to go to college and had freedom to be myself and did not return until I felt psychologically oppressed in my marriage. Why it returned after the brief freedom from symptoms following the death of my husband, I haven’t yet fully figured out, but I am sure it has to do with not fully expressing myself." Hun skrev, "Frihed fra astma startede, da jeg flyttede hjemmefra for at gå på college og havde frihed til at være mig selv og vendte ikke tilbage, før jeg følte psykisk undertrykt i mit ægteskab. Hvorfor det vendte tilbage efter de korte frihed fra symptomer efter død af min mand Jeg havenâ € ™ t endnu ikke helt regnet ud, men jeg er sikker på, det har at gøre med ikke fuldt ud at udtrykke mig selv. "

She described her symptoms as, "Shortness of breath, usually worse in morning, or with exercise. Some wheezing especially if have cold or cough. General tiredness. Have had acute episodes requiring adrenalin injections, but they are rare. Usual condition is mild to intermediate. However, the intermediate has been increasing over the last few years."

At the six-month follow up she reported moderate improvement. Ved seks måneders opfølgning hun rapporterede moderat forbedring. She wrote: Hun skrev:

"One of the ‘small healings’ I reported for July was climbing to a waterfall (no big deal except that this waterfall was in the High Sierras where I usually have great trouble breathing even around a level campground)…I am in control of asthma rather than letting an episode happen and then responding to it. I feel much more energy and much more ready to go on to new challenges in meeting my soul’s purpose for this lifetime." "En af de â € ~ lille healingsâ € ™ Jeg har rapporteret for juli var klatring til et vandfald (no big deal bortset fra at dette vandfald var i High Sierras, hvor jeg som regel har store problemer med at trække vejret selv omkring et niveau campinpladser) â € | jeg er i kontrol af astma stedet for at lade en episode ske, og så reagere på det. Jeg føler mig meget mere energi og meget mere klar til at gå videre til nye udfordringer i møde mine Soula € ™ s formål, for dette liv. "

At that time she was following the diet consistently, and used Calcidin alternating with Atomidine until her supply ran out. På det tidspunkt var hun efter diæt konsekvent, og bruges Calcidin skiftevis med Atomidine indtil hendes levere løb ud.

At the 1-year follow up, her compliance with the protocol had decreased. Ved 1-års opfølgning, havde sin overholdelse af protokollen faldt.

Her attitudes and emotions were also "Improved." Hendes holdninger og følelser var også "Bedre." But AS#3’s asthma symptoms had come back, she noted that she only followed the diet occasionally, and she said: Men som # 3a € ™ s astma-symptomerne var kommet tilbage, bemærkede hun, at hun kun fulgte diæt lejlighedsvis, og hun sagde:

"Mostly improved, but recently I’ve had more symptoms than I’ve had for a long time. I plan to follow diet better and hope that will lead to improvement again. "Mest forbedret, men for nylig Iâ € ™ ve havde flere symptomer end IA € ™ ve haft i lang tid. Jeg planlægger at følge diæt bedre og håber, der vil føre til en forbedring igen.
"You didn’t ask about chiropractic – I have gotten lots of treatments but none made the degree of difference that Carl Nelson’s did. "Du didnâ € ™ t spørge om kiropraktik â €" Jeg har fået masser af behandlinger, men ingen gjorde den grad af forskel, at Carl Nelsonâ € ™ s gjorde.
"Life events have eroded motivation (I have let them do so), eg, taking the time to prepare a proper Cayce meal vs. a quick spaghetti and cheese (a no no!) or eating out. I need to scale back my activities and take better care of myself." "Livet begivenheder har eroderet motivation (jeg har ladet dem gøre det), fx at tage sig tid til at forberede en ordentlig Cayce måltid vs en hurtig spaghetti og ost (en nej nej!) Eller spise ude. Jeg har brug for at dæmpe mine aktiviteter og passe bedre på mig selv. "

"Most asthmatics have a Peak Flow Meter – this gauge helped me ‘see’ my oxygen progress. Came blowing 25-150, left Virginia blowing 250-300.
