BEAUTY THROUGH HEALTH: From the Edgar Cayce Readings

The anonymous angel who was Edgar Cayce's benefactor at the age of thirteen granted his greatest wish: to help the sick. Since ugliness is one of woman's greatest scourges, Cayce answered in his lifetime many questions about warts, bunions, superfluous hair and halitosis. In this book his disciple, a former ""beauty director"" from Revlon ""who has dedicated his life to enhancing the female image,"" has compiled Cayce's wisdom on acne, dandruff, falling hair, cavities, cuticles, corns, callouses, ingrown toenails and itchy toes. He offers a recipe for developing the bustline, recommends buttermilk for cancer as well as asthma, diabetes and tuberculosis. There is a preface, presumably on recommendation of the publisher's lawyer, stating that ""responsibility for any and all attempts to research [Cayce's] suggestions and formulas as reported must lie with the reader."" Rather harmless quackery for beauty if not health.
