Edgar Cayce on the cause of, and treatment for, psoriasis:
“The conditions that exist through the thinning of the walls of the intestines allow the poisons to find expressions in the lymph circulation; thus producing the irritation to and through the epidermis itself” READING 2455-2
Dr. Pagano was a chiropractor. With his groundwork it wouldn’t be very difficult for a medical researcher to replicate his results thereby establishing themselves as the historic pioneer, in their field, for this discovery. Simple diet is the primary cause and cure.
“Q. Please give me the cause and cure for the so-called psoriasis with which I am troubled. “A. The cause is the thinning of the walls of the intestinal system, which allows the escaping of poisons – or the absorption of same by the muco-membranes which surround same, and becomes effective in the irritation through the lymph and emunctory reactions in the body. “An effective cure for same is first being mindful of the diet, during the periods when these necessary elements would be given for creating those activities within the system to close such conditions: “In the system we would use elm water and saffron water. These would be taken in the ordinary drinking water, during periods of one, two to three weeks at a time. All the drinking water, carrying, then, either a small quantity of elm or the Saffron. For this adds to the assimilating system those properties that become effective to the aiding of building within the system itself those conditions that will overcome such activities in the system. “The diet during such periods should be more of vegetables than of meats or sweets, so that there are those reactions that make for better unification in the membranes’ reaction within the body.” (289-1)
The intestinal permeation cause of psoriasis is a fact that can be taken to be absolutely true and accurate. While I’m told that every sufferer’s situation can be significantly improved via this diet, Edgar Cayce gave his readings for specific individuals an not as general cures. While the results are good the efficacy of this diet varies.
