Psoriasis — Edgar Cayce Health Readings

Psoriasis — Edgar Cayce Health Readings


Are you noticing a pattern here? The
pattern is this — you end up with some
symptoms that gets diagnosed in a certain way … like brain disease, a neurology disease —
seizures in the brain, headache in the brain — but the cause is someplace else in the system. You can appreciate that a little better after the way we talked about
anatomy and physiology this morning — how everything is connected — things get out
coordination with each other. And that’s more often than not the cause the
disease. Psoriasis is another one of these
syndromes where it ends up in one place, but you have to
trace it like a chain reaction, trace it right back to the physiology
somewhere else in the body. And so in Cayce’s readings most often, most cases of psoriasis, the
problem, he said, was “the thinning of the walls of the intestinal
system which allows the escaping of poisons.” That the leaky gut syndrome that I mentioned this morning — leaky gut syndrome. And it is as basic as that … there are a number of studies that have looked at this. Leaky gut is a fairly hot item now in alternate medicine. This is the type of
reading where I talk about “co-morbidity” — the toxins leak out of the gut,
depending on where they settle, they can produce all the different things. Well, that’s in the medical literature —
that’s what they’re finding. Now we did find a couple studies where
they actually looked at this. This is a mainstream dermatologist now, these are not even
alternative. We tend to find it more in Europe than in the US, they are a lot more open
to these sort of things. What they did was, they looked at psoriasis patients and normal people without skin
disease or bowel disease — and they found a strong correlation. The psoriasis patients swallowed a
substance containing a a radioactive tracer, a very
mild radioactive tracer — so they could tell whether this stuff is
leaking through the gut and ending up in the urine. So they examined
the urine and in normal people, very little this stuff would get through the gut, because it’s a fairly large molecule — normally it
wouldn’t get through the gut, it wouldn’t be absorbed, it should pass right on through. People with “leaky gut syndrome” (or
“increased intestinal permeability” — is the technical
term), they will find more this in the urine. Because that’s one of the eliminating channels, it came through and the system is trying to get rid
of it, right. Maybe some of it will even show up in the skin, who knows. I don’t know if they even tested the skin to see if it was even showing up there. That would be interesting wouldn’t it — as a channel of elimination. And so the
Humbert, et al study was one of those that was
significant in that way. So it’s in the mainstream literature, even with psoriasis. We did a version of this with
the two studies that we did — the two pilot studies where we used the lactulose- manitol test. And lactulose manitol — two sugar molecules — a large on and small one. And so we look at the ratio that shows up
in the urine. If you have a healthy gut, very little
of the large molecule should get through. The small one should get through just
fine, so that tells you if you’re absorbing okay. But the large one shouldn’t get
through, and if you see a high ratio of that with the large to the small, then you
say the person has “leaky gut syndrome.” And this is Great Smokies Lab — which is a lot easier to do than working with radioactive substances, by the way. We did tend to find a relation
there and we submitted an article to a peer-reviewed journal — and we’re in the review process on that –.
trying to get that result published. Some of the standard
treatments for psoriasis — the herbal tea is the yellow saffron and the slippery elm — the two most common, but sometimes recommended mullein, sometimes chamomile — some different things. One thing I don’t have up there, he would
recommend small doses of olive oil sometimes, and that’s a fascinating piece
of physiology there — small doses of olive oil — half a teaspoon, a quarter teaspoon, or even less, two or three or four times a day.
maybe every couple hours. But it had to be a small amount. Does anybody know why it had to be a small amount of olive oil? Somebody has heard my talk before. Yeah, okay. The reason is — it’s a fat — olive oil is a fat. He said it’s a food for the
intestinal track. It’s a food and it will help coat the intestinal track, and feed and nourish the intestinal track and help it to heal. But — if you take large amounts of it, what
happens when it goes through the digestive track? Through the stomach, into the small
intestine … and when you get a lot of fats coming into the small intestine what happens? It says the bile, you know. The gallbladder: “Pump in some bile!! Emulsify this fat!! We got fat coming through here!!”
You got the large amount of fat — the bile comes and emulsifies it — it’s not able to its job — and coat
the intestines and feed the intestines because it is broken down with the bile. But if you take small amounts and sort of
slip through there (under the radar screen, so to speak) — so you get a little bit … a little bit … a little bit … and the
system doesn’t tell the bile. So Cayce would say, you get a gastric reaction
without an intestinal reaction. In other words, the stomach knows it’s there when it
comes through, but the intestinal tract doesn’t even
know it’s there. It slips right in there and coats the intestines and helps it to heal — small amounts of olive oil.
He recommended that for a number of different things — even with diarrhea, and so forth — it had to be a small
amount, you see why. Isn’t that a sophisticated way of
thinking of physiology in the intestinal tract? The manual therapy — sometimes it was a spinal subluxation. A part of this formula
Cayce gave included “right-thinking.” I don’t know if I included that quote … But when the guy asked: “Is there a
cure for psoriasis?” He says: “It’s mostly in diet but also in right-thinking.” So the attitudinal, the mental part of how
you look at yourself — do you look at yourself as
having the possibility of being healed? Or are you just a victim? “This happened to me and there’s nothing I
can do about it.” The expectation of being healed … that sort of thing — that’s what he’s talking about, the right attitude. Are you gonna do whatever it takes to stick with this diet? The lady with the migraine, a while ago, didn’t have the right attitude — not the right thinking. I know what’s causing it, I know the connection, I know what’s causing it, but I just can’t change my mind, or I just can’t change my behaviors. That’s the opposite
right-thinking. We want right-thinking with psoriasis
and everything else. And of course you’re familiar with Pagano’s book and all of that … We’ve published in Venture Inward, I think
at least one article on some of the psoriasis programs we’ve done and you can read about that if you like. This is an extensive review — this is over
100 citations — I got this published in in “Integrative Medicine” (Andrew Weil’s journal) — on the “Systemic Aspects of Psoriasis: An Integrative Model Based on Intestinal Etiology.” So if you want a deeper cut on this — I’m skimming across the
surface of it — but if you really want understand what’s going on here with auto-intoxication, the immune system, and so forth — this will give it to you. I just submitted a large part of this to the National
Psoriasis Foundation for a grant application last week, looking at “leaky gut” in
psoriasis, so we’ll see how it goes. We did get an announcement for a paper
announcement and we’ve never done anything with them — so how we got on
their list to get the paper announcement for psoriasis research — because we don’t have a dermatologist or anybody on board … somehow we got on their radar screen — and I think it might be because
Pagano presented at their last international conference and they had standing room only at his presentation. So I think somebody there is paying
attention to the Cayce “leaky gut” model and they are interested in Pagano
and got a hold of this paper, probably. Or Pagano may have given them this paper and they may have said, let’s send those guys … let them know that we are going to provide some grant money. Whether we get it or not — our model doesn’t fit the categories of a what they’re looking for. They’re not
looking for intestinal kinds of things. They’re looking for genetics, the immune system, and so forth — they have strict categories that they think is what’s causing psoriasis. We didn’t fit into their categories very nicely. But we thought, what the heck. We will send them the best that we have — and if they read it, at least we will educate them a little bit. Maybe next year they’ll include a category for digestive or alternative medicine approaches to psoriasis.
