2. Energy Medicine

Edgar Cayce recommended several alternative medicine modalties for the treatment of cancer. The most common was the use of the ultra-violet lamp which was typically used in conjunction with various forms of ash (animated ash, carbon ash, medicated ash) taken internally just before the ultraviolet light is applied to the body. The ultraviolet light was said to enhance various physiological functions, particularly leucocyte (immune system) functioning and coagulation. The ash was said to increase the oxygen level in the blood. Ultraviolet therapy was also sometimes recommended as a palliative treatment to produce comfort and reduce pain.

There may be help if there is still held that desire for life and activity. There is no healing of that which is spent. There may be ease and the better activity with the use of the ultra-violet light, if the green glass is used between the body AND the ultra-violet. This would be over those areas of the ribs, in the back, that there may be a greater flow and formation of the elements in the blood to create greater quantities of leukocytes in blood plasm.

Use the ultra-violet with the green glass for at least a minute, once a day, but have it thirty-eight to thirty-nine inches from the body - using only the Mercury light. The piece of green glass, about ten by twelve inches, would be at least fourteen inches from body. (3516-1)

Three to five minutes after taking each dose of the Ash, use the Ultra-Violet Ray (not the Carbon Light but the Mercury Quartz or the Cooper-Hewett (?) [Note given ECF 5/8/73 by Don Button: Cooper-Hewett is (or was) the Company name of a Mercury Quartz type Ultra Violet Lamp] Light) over the lower portion of the spinal system - but at least thirty-eight to forty inches from the body. This will help produce coagulation if assimilation is set up. (1382-1)

Every OTHER day, three to five minutes after the dose of Ash has been taken, apply the ultra-violet ray over those portions of the cerebrospinal system that govern the lower lungs. This should be NOT the carbon, but the hand lamp may be used - but preferably the mercury or quartz light; and this at least thirty-six to forty-two inches (36" to 42") from the body, this dependent upon the reaction of the body to same. Do not over redden the body, because more superficial than the deeper activity - but about a minute and a half to two minutes, dependent upon the reaction. This is only to be applied every other day, you see, in a manner that there may be loosened those influences that will allow more oxygen to act upon the blood stream; thus making for a purification in same that will aid in establishing help for the system. The light given following the Ash, every other day, is to cause the atomic forces in the Ash to react upon the blood stream; SENDING, then, as it were, these destroyer forces in the leukocytes of the system to destroy tissue that has become - as indicated - involved throughout the system, causing many twists and many activities to the organs themselves. (1070-1)

We would use one-eighth grain of the Animated Ash, at least every other day. Empty the powder on tongue and wash down with water; DO NOT take IN the capsule. And five to ten minutes after taking the Ash, we would use the Ultra-Violet Ray; not the Carbon Light nor the Sun Light, but preferably the Mercury Quartz Light; given across the lower portion of the lung area (from the back, you see), for one and a half to three minutes. Thus we will loosen more of the oxygen to combat the general conditions in the system; for these work with the nerves and muscular forces and those activities that tend for action through not only the respiratory system and the organs of the body through the glandular forces and mammary glands and in the throat and the stomach, but make for the better action towards an assimilation. (1000-11)

We would also take those properties of the animated ash, that will release in the system - with the use of the ultra-violet light, especially, with same - to give a healing to the intestinal system, increasing the oxygen and removing the pressures, taking up the inflammation that causes the pressure to the head, to the neck, and to the eyes, and that reduces the activity of the blood supply THROUGH the liver. This we would take in one-quarter grain doses at least twice each week, following about thirty to forty minutes afterwards (taking same in water) with the application of the ultra-violet light for three to five minutes, especially over the liver and the bowel area….

(Q) Is this trouble liable to be cancerous?

(A) May become so, unless there is the releasing of the blood supply in such an extent as to ward off, or to prevent the breaking of tissue. Hence the taking of the ash, or the animated forces that loosen more oxygen in the system. (19-4)

A piece of green glass that was often placed between the ulraviolet lamp and the body to enhance the effect of the light. Here are some excerpts that describe the effect created by the green glass.

Infrared light was recommended in a few cancer readings.

We would then the next day take the Infra Red ray, after being heated with the green glass between the Infra Red and the body; and do not place the glass so close to the heat as to cause fracture or breaking, but closer to the body – that there may be the effect of the color as it is changed from the Infra Red, or the activity of Infra Red.

(This aside, now, for explanation - and as to why the change: The Infra Red is that which acts upon the STRUCTURAL portions of the body, and the COVERINGS of the structural portion, see? Then, altered through the effect of the rays passing through plate glass, or heavy glass, that is GREEN in color, acts upon not only the structural or bone portion of the body but upon the muscles and tendons of the body also, in eliminating poisons that have caused - and do cause – those eruptions in the various portions of the body, internally and externally, allowing these poisons to find those manners of being eliminated through the channels of eliminations in the system.) (757-3)

At least once a week (but not on the same days the ultra-violet is given) we would apply the Infra-Red ray, but when used screen the ray with the quarter inch crystal of the GREEN glass, so that the rays that penetrate to the structural portions (from which the bone structure produce cells that act in the capacity of the corpuscles themselves) are penetrated with the vibration from the GREEN rather than the red. This should be given for twenty to thirty minutes, at least forty inches from the body. (757-1)

Radium therapy, as a form of alternative medicine, was recommended in numerous cancer readings. There were two primary techniques – the Double X Radium Appliance and radium water. Here are some examples of how to use the radium appliance.

We, then, would use that of the Double X Radium Appliance, wearing same across the small of the back for at least five hours each day. Then, when lying on the back, we would lay same next to the body, across the right and lower portion of the abdomen. (5422-1)

Applying, then, the radium in the way as has been; also applying the Radium Applicator to those portions of the body, that the strengthening forces (that is - through the solar plexus) may assist in the distribution of the forces that overcome the condition. (4977-1)

Use as the application for the vibrations to be corrected in the system, that of the Radium Applicator about the spine, wearing the pad across the solar plexus, and changing every other week to that about the secondary cardiac plexus. Do this, and by the time the full quantity of medicinal properties is taken, and this applicator has been worn for this same length of time, we will see corrections coming for the body. (4695-2)

Use the heavy Radium Appliance ever across the solar plexus, see? At least five minutes each day rest, lying prone, and lay pad across the throat, see? Just about where the Adam's apple would be on man, or at the lower portion of the tongue, see? (3710-1)

Several readings recommended radium water for treating cancer.

Use under the direction of physician (for it may not be applied in any other way and manner) that of RADIUM WATER as the internal forces for the system, see? …

Take at least TEN DOSES of the Radium Water and the treatments as go with same each day; that is those forces - though the Radium Water will be changed by the physician to meet the needs of the histology and of the conditions in the system. After the ten doses have been taken - that is, they may not be taken each day, or they may be taken each day - but after ten doses we would give further suggestions for this body. Dr. Tally may give this. (4741-1)

Then, that which may add the better condition to the body would be, taking those small properties as in that of the Radium Water, and with the application over the system (especially in those ganglia that give distress in system) that of the Violet Ray. The Radium Water should not be taken oftener than every second or third day. Necessitate being given under the direction of physician, see? (5721)

We would also give, every third day - but under the DIRECTION of a physician (and these had all best be given under the direction of a physician watching or tending the condition) - those of small doses of radium water. (Radium Water Company, Pittsburgh, Pa.) (5585-1)

The following reading recommended either or both forms of radium therapy (applicator or water).

The body may be by care and attention builded to that wherein the system may be able to sustain through an operation to remove that portion of liver, and of stomach or duodenum, wherein the condition has become so accentuated, for this has not broken through entirely, for tissue has become hardened about the body of the malignant condition, yet this may break through at any time by overtaxing, or the body may be treated with those properties of radium. As to the application, this shall be governed according to the abilities of system to resist same. This, as we find, will scatter same in system, yet were the eliminations of sufficient nature to carry out these drosses from system, we would bring the more relief to the body through this, or we may take into the body those properties of the radium water that will assist also in producing eliminations properly throughout the system. Either or both of these may be given this body for the assistance to the body. (4752-1)

3. Manual Therapy

Manual therapy, the use of the hands to diagnose and treat illness, was recommended in numerous cancer readings to improve drainages and to absorb and eliminate toxicity in the system.

4. Herbal Medicine

Plantain was one of the most common herbs recommended by Edgar Cayce for the treatment of cancer. The application was usually either as a tea for internal consumption or as an ointment for external application. Reading 3121-1, given for a man suffering from sarcoma, recommended both methods of therapy:

First we would give that there be prepared an ointment from the leaves of young Plantain, at this particular season of the year, growing in the vicinity where this body lives.

Yes, it is this herb that you desire oft to get rid of, in the yard, garden or walk. But do not use the seed, so much, in the ointment. Gather the tender leaves, about the quantity that may be crammed, not too tightly, into a pint cup.

Cook this until it is rather thick. Do not allow to burn.

Then use it as an ointment over the areas where these protuberances gather at times - for they do vary. They become as warts or moles, that become infected and sore, and run. This ointment will tend to dry same.

But to purify these from the body-force, we would also take internally a Plantain Tea, made from the tender top leaves of the same plant, with - at this season, especially - the seed of the Plantain - about half and half. Fill half a pint cup with these, and add to one quart of Distilled or Rain Water - using only an enamel or glass container, not metal. Cook until reduced to about half the quantity, or half a pint of the liquid. Take this as a tea, a teaspoonful four times each day; after each meal and at bedtime. Keep this where it is cool, and if the quantity tends to turn a bit sour, discard it - but this whole quantity should be taken before it would sour. It is not so good to add a preservative for this particular material, for it changes this. (3121-1)

5. Prayer

Prayer was explicitly recommended in five of the 397 physical readings containing the word cancer.

The use of the Ultra-Violet with the green light would be helpful, but prayer is needed most. The massage will only quiet the body. Sedatives will have to be used at times. (3439-1)

The body has not yet recuperated from the effect of anesthesia - or the shock to the system. And unless there is a great deal of praying done, he won't be much better….

A gentle massage to quiet the body would be well, with prayer - and not by those who do not live what they pray. Do not merely pray that he will be well, but well for what? Do not pray for the body to be well for what the body can do for self but for those whom he has aided and also hindered. (3439-1)

Most of all, pray. Let the mental attitude be considered first and foremost. Do not promise thyself, nor thy God, nor thy neighbor, that you do not fulfill. (3121-1)

And, above all, PRAY! Those who are about the body, use, rely upon the spiritual forces. For the prayer of the righteous shall save the sick.

Know that all strength, all healing of every nature is the changing of the vibrations from within, - the attuning of the divine within the living tissue of a body to Creative Energies. This alone is healing. Whether it is accomplished by the use of drugs, the knife or what not, it is the attuning of the atomic structure of the living cellular force to its spiritual heritage.

Then, in the prayer of those, - live day by day in the same manner as ye pray - if ye would bring assistance and help for this body. (1967-1)

(Q) Any other suggestions?

(A) Do this - and pray! (1282-1

Know that this is being given to AROUSE the body to the realization that he must CONTINUALLY be on the guard; not just for a week, not for just a month! Not so much as to attempt to throw off on others, or to use the condition as an excuse, but rather to use the condition as a means to form those tendencies, those habits, those precautions which have been indicated so oft for the body. For, the warnings have been given again and again as to how to keep the body fit, - as to the foods, the diets, the exercise, the recreation, the rest, the building of the mental body, the time to play and the time to work, the time to recuperate the mental body, the time to make holy and the time to pray. (257-228)

6. Other Alternative Therapies

The Cayce readings contain numerous other alternative therapies. Some are interesting, but obscure. Others are somewhat mysterious.

The use of rabbit body parts for cancer treatment was prescribed in several Cayce readings on cancer. Most often, the hide of a freshly killed rabbit was placed over an external cancer tumor as may be present in breast cancer.

Then, for the abrasion, as produced this strain and does not heal, we would cover this with the fur from the rabbit, and as often as possible have this NEW, and as with the life still in same, see? This will bring the greater relief for this body, [4615]. Do that. (4615-1)

In the gland region, under the arm, over the portion of the scapula, we would massage - GENTLY - each day - with those of the Iodex preparation, and keep from the irritation of clothing or pressures on same. We would keep covered with those of a young hare's fur, or rabbit fur - PREFERABLY that recently caught, or skinned; the skin, to be sure, prepared so that no infectious forces may arise from same. (5662-1)

The breast, or lump, may be massaged GENTLY - not bruised, to be sure, but gently massaged - with a mixture of one-quarter ounce of Iodex and one-quarter grain of the Animated Ash. Gently massage this once each day. Protect this [breast lump] by the use of hare fur, or the like, over same - with a gauze in between the fur and the skin. The VIBRATION from this is excellent for a tumor, and DISSIPATES same - if the system is HIGHLY eliminative in its activity, which it becomes with an excess of iodic effect in the blood stream. This iodic effect, with an activity of greases or too great protein (or meats), will be more harmful than helpful. As also would be an excess of potatoes, or beets, or such. Rather use leafy vegetables, with celery, carrots, turnips occasionally (especially the tops), cabbage, fruits and nuts. These would be well to keep the body well balanced, but do not include walnuts or pecans in these! Almonds, Brazilian nuts, cashew nuts, and the like, are well. Almonds, especially. (4438-1)

A couple of cancer readings describe a hypothetical treatment technique that involves using part of the rabbit leg to create a serum for treating cancer. It is not clear that this particular technique was ever actually used.

We would give then, THESE, as we find, would be the better corrective measures for this body, were there a serum made from that as is called the "wolve" [wolf] in the beef or the hare, at this season, and injections made in that region where the blood supply to the system is most effective. For this region of system this would be materially aided, or checked - or NICCOLITE, as this becomes….

(Q) How can this be made?

(A) This should be drawn off - that is, the wolve [wolf], see? - PUNCTURED by an hypodermic, see? This drawn off and then a culture made into the flesh of the same animal from which it's drawn, whether beef or hare. Then the culture applied to the HUMAN body, see? or blood drawn and a culture made FOR the human body and then applied to the body. There must necessarily be experimentations, with the proper heat, the proper precautions taken as to the character of cell as is destroyed in the culture made, and in the activity of the animal as well as human when being used; but for this character of the condition this would be MOST effective in at least fifty percent of such ills. (2457-4)

(Q) What treatment would you prescribe for these?

(A) There is not much difference between the numbers, or amount of white and red corpuscles in the blood. An excess, perhaps, more of the leukocyte condition. That is, of the white or resistive force, at present, to relieve from the system the condition we have, that is, the condition of the face. The portion taken in by the parasite, we have had from the outside, there has been no more resistance in it than we have had. We need the same things we have had before, and we will improve the system here, by taking it away, or letting nature resist it here, as at the parts effected. Then, as we have the body improved, being eliminated from the system here, by the niccolite here onto the place itself. Or the same here of the rabbit, or wolve that we have in its back at the time of the year here. That is, the same construction. (4444-2)

Iodine therapy for cancer was recommended in various treatment formats. Iodex was a commercial product that was prescribed by Cayce for cancer prevention and treatment. Most often it was combined with animated ash and used as a topical application around tumors or sores.

For those places where there are BROKEN places in the head and neck and portions of the body, we would use a combination of Iodex and Animated Ash. To one ounce of the Iodex thoroughly mix ten grains of the Animated Ash. Use this as an ointment, gently massaging around the nobules, around those places and around the activities that cause so much distress. (799-1)

As we would find, as we have indicated heretofore, it would be well to use those properties around or close to the swelling or abrasions - or where the opening or the effusion has been active - to massage gently over the glands lower down; that is, under the arm and farther away. The Iodex infused with the Animated Ash. To half an ounce of the Iodex we would combine a grain and a half of the Ash, see? This should be THOROUGHLY mixed together….

(Q) How often should the Iodex-Ash ointment be massaged?

(A) Once each day, just what the body may absorb; not enough for discoloration or like that. This would preferably be done in the evening, while the emulsion from the Plantain and sweet butter would be better of mornings as the body is ready to dress, you see. (325-48)

Two readings encouraged experimentation with iodine transfusions for leukemia. The treatments were not applied in either case.

We find that this may be materially aided for this body, if there will be the use of the blood of the body combined with Iodine - Tincture of; one c.c., - this at the time of the next transfusion given back into the body.

This effect is the lack of the cells becoming activated upon by the iodine - that is a part of the structural activity through the system.

Necessarily, this will require that some tests be made upon activities, or organisms, to get the reaction of same.

But this offers a means, a channel for aid for the conditions. (2208-1)

We find that this may be materially aided for this body, if there will be the use of the blood of the body combined with Iodine - Tincture of; one c.c., - this at the time of the next transfusion given back into the body.

Necessarily, this will require that some tests be made upon activities, or organisms, to get the reaction of same.

But this offers a means, a channel for aid for the conditions.

Ready for questions.

(Q) What percentage of the iodine solution should be given?

(A) As just indicated, this as to the percentage must be tested upon organisms in which blood is traceable to the same character of conditions existent in the organism, so that there may be the proper balance gained. The quantity, you see, would be as indicated.

(Q) How long will it take for recovery?

(A) Of course, this will necessitate more than one injection of same; but there should be seen longer and longer periods of the normal activity, if this is prepared and given as indicated.

It should not require more than a few weeks to see the direct improvement.

(Q) How often should these injections be given?

(A) Again, as indicated, it is necessary that this be tested upon organisms.

(Q) Will the suggestions given here be effective in treating Henry Werner Ketching, who is also suffering from what the doctors call Leukemia, and is now at the St. Luke's Hospital on Morningside Heights, N. Y.?

(A) These methods will be effective in treating any individual case of such natures. For, the fusion is made of the blood of the INDIVIDUAL, you see, but combined WITH the transfusions.

When these are used, it will be found that there will be the ability to reduce the percentage of such cases more than fifty percent. (2208-1)


The vast body of information provided by Edgar Cayce on the causes and treatment of cancer shows remarkable similarity to modern trends in this area. As Cayce suggested, cancer has many causes and can manifest in many forms. Whereas Cayce stated that there are nineteen different forms of cancer, modern researchers recognize over one hundred varieties (The American Institute For Cancer Research, 1999).

As Cayce observed, in many cases, cancer may represent a failure of natural processes. Specifically, cancer can be conceptualized as exaggerated cell replication and proliferation similar to the natural growth process in an embryo. Just like the embryo, cancer goes on to develop into its own entity. Unlike a healthy embryo, the growth of cancer cells does not stop at an appropriate time as determined by genetic constraints. In fact, it is most likely damage to the genetic material that allows the abnormal growth processes in the first place. Clearly, cancer draws upon the vitality of the host system in a parasitic mode.

Although chronic irritation is recognized as a potential cause of cancer by modern science, Edgar Cayce probably placed more emphasis on it as an etiological factor than do modern clinicians. Overexposure to cigarette smoke, sunlight, and other environmental irritants are the best documented sources of chronic irritation in the medical literature. Cayce stated that bruising[1] or the accumulation of wastes are also sources of irritation.

Several alternative medicine approaches echo Cayce’s assertion that poor eliminations resulting in a buildup of toxicity can contribute to cancer. Gerson cited a buildup of toxicity throughout the body as a primary pathophysiological process in cancer. Gerson focused on the supporting the liver and cleansing the system via diet and coffee enemas (Gerson, 1958). Callebout recommends a 6-phase detoxification program including coffee enemas, liver flush, colon cleanse, whole-body purge, skin cleansing, and Russian steam bath (Callebout, 1997). Callebout’s recommendations are similar to many nonspecific Cayce-based therapies that are found in many Cayce readings, including those for cancer. This clinician may have been familiar with Cayce’s work since castor oil compresses are recommended by Callebout as a local treatment for cancer tumors.

Consistent with Cayce’s views on prevention, contemporary research strongly supports the idea that many cancers can be prevented. About one-third of the 500,000 cancer deaths that occur in the United States each year are due to dietary factors. If you add to that those that are linked to smoking and alcohol consumption, as many as three-quarters of all cancer deaths are lifestyle-related (The American Institute For Cancer Research, 1999). Strictly on a statistical basis, making some basic lifestyle changes can tremendously decrease the risk of cancer. Although early diagnosis and treatment result in better prognosis, cancer is often fatal.

In contrast to the physical dimension of cancer, Cayce’s emphasis on the holistic aspects of cancer does not find as much support in the mainstream cancer literature. Nurses are more likely to include the spiritual dimension of service when providing treatment for cancer patients (Taylor, 2001; Mytko & Knight, 1999; Martsolf, 1997). Alternative practitioners are more likely to utilize mental and spiritual approaches to cancer treatment than allopathic physicians (Diamond et al., 1997).

From a treatment standpoint, Cayce’s approach could probably be best classified as complementary and alternative medicine. The integration of conventional and alternative therapeutic modalities is consistent with some current models. Surgery and radiation therapy have come a long way since Cayce’s era. Chemotherapy was not an option for Cayce.

Some of Cayce’s alternative therapies for the prevention and treatments for cancer are now recognized as effective. In particular, a diet low in meat and fats and high in vegetables and fruits is likely to help prevent cancer (The American Institute For Cancer Research, 1999). The role of diet as a treatment for cancer is more controversial.

Cayce’s views on the therapeutic role of oxygenating therapies are similar to some modern alternative approaches. Whereas Cayce prescribed animated, carbon, and medicated ash, some contemporary practitioners utilize hydrogen peroxide and ozone treatments for the same effect (Dormandy, 1988; Ben-Yoseph & Ross, 1994; Altman, 1995; Varro, 1983).

The Cayce information on cancer suggests several hypotheses that can be tested via basic and clinical research. Here are some specific areas for future research.

• Plantain Therapy – Edgar Cayce stated that the juice of the plantain (a common plant), could be used relieve the symptoms of cancer. The plantain may be used externally as a poultice or internally as a tea. Researchers could provide plantain therapy to cancer patients with significant pain and monitor patient reports of symptom severity before and after therapy. The hypothesis is that plantain therapy will decrease symptom severity or frequency.

• Oxygen Therapy – Edgar Cayce advocated therapeutic interventions (such as animated or carbon ash) to increase oxygen levels in cancer patients. Basic research could be conducted to measure levels of oxygen in the system before and after administration of animated or carbon ash. Clinical research could focus on the efficacy of this type of therapy for cancer patients. The hypotheses are (1) that using the animate or carbon ash as Cayce recommended will increase systemic oxygen levels, and (2) that treatment of cancer patients with this techinque will decrease cancer symptoms and produce longer survival time.
Compare Ozone Cancer Treatment, Otto Warburg On The Prime Cause & Prevention of Cancer: Respiration of Oxygen in Normal Body Cells vs. Fermentation of Sugar in Cancer Cells and Dr. Johanna Budwig Diet & Protocol centered on increasing cellular oxygenation.

• Dietary Almonds – Cayce stated that daily almond consumption could reduce the risk of cancer. A study conducted on rats supports this concept (Davis & Iwahashi, 2001). Studies looking at the possible correlation of almond consumption and cancer rates could evaluate the potential of this preventive strategy. The hypothesis is that daily almond consumption will reduce the rate of cancer.
Compare Edgar Cayce's perspective of cancer & Almonds as cancer/tumor preventatives.

• Iodine Therapy for Leukemia – Two Cayce readings recommended experimentation with iodine transfusions in cases of leukemia. Experiments could be conducted using an animal model for leukemia. Perhaps the transgenic mice developed by Honda and Hirai (2001) for leukemia research could be used to test the hypothesis that p210bcr/abl that is detected in almost all chronic myelogenous leukemia could be decreased with iodine transfusions.

Note by Healing Cance Naturally: There is overwhelming evidence that animal models of human disease deliver results which jeopardize progress in medicine, see Cancer Research & Animal Experimentation: an Unholy Union?.

The present study is preliminary and has numerous limitations. Due to the limited resources (time) of the researcher, it is not as comprehensive as the Research Bulletin format that has been used by the Edgar Cayce Foundation for surveying other topics in the Cayce health readings. As stated previously, this study does not seek to determine the validity of the data. Rather, it is intended to identify important themes and research hypotheses that can be explored in future studies.


The Cayce information represents a valuable resource for researchers, clinicians, and the general public. Current levels of scientific knowledge support many of the basic premises put forth by Cayce with regard to the cause and treatment of cancer. Further research must be done to determine the validity of the information, particularly with regard to clinical efficacy.
