"Nourishing the Body Temple provides a very good holistic perspective to the subject of 'whole self' nourishment." -- Geoff Tarbat in Vitality magazine
This comprehensive Edgar Cayce diet and nutrition guide is your road map to better health. The late Christian mystic and seer Edgar Cayce emphasized the biblical view of the body as temple for the spirit. The task of sustaining the body, through good nutrition and other means, is therefore a spiritual responsibility. Cayce gave thousands of psychic readings addressing health and nutrition. Today, scientific research has validated many of the dietary recommendations proposed by Cayce, notably his consistent admonitions to substantially increase the intake of vegetables and fruits. Food fads come and go, but the Cayce diet stands the test of time as a sound, well-balanced nutrition plan that supplies all necessary nutrients in a form that is easily assimilated by the body.
Nourishing the Body Temple provides a complete overview of the principles of healthy eating, synthesized from the Cayce readings by a professional nutritionist, who explains them from the perspective of modern nutritional science.
Discussed are a wide range of topics, including enzymes, pH balance (acid-alkaline balance), vitamins, minerals, food combining, vegetarian diet, and medicinal foods. This book also gives you concise health information on topics such as:
* fruits, vegetables, and juicing
* raw food power
* seasonings, sweeteners, and beverages
* meat and dairy products
* fats and oils
* the special nutritional value of sea vegetables
* preserving nutrients in the cooking process
* power-boosting the immune system through an alkaline diet
* balancing weight naturally
A section of the book addresses the use of foods and supplements for nutritional needs during pregnancy and lactation, as well as for babies, young children, and teens.
