KIRKUS REVIEW

As the faithful will remember, Edgar Cayce was not only a healer but believed in a prophylactic regimen of natural foods and the curative properties of diets and wet packs--say an abdominal cold pack for insomnia or hog lard for the scalp. Physiotherapist Reilly (who for years had his Health Institute at Rockefeller Center where he treated celebrities from Nelson A. to the late John L. Lewis) studied under him in the '30's and is equally high on high colonics or massage or fume baths. Also exercises (""The ones you do""). In a book like this you will find many points of convergence with others besides Cayce--whether it's Dr. Jarvis of Folk Medicine or Adelle Davis or any of the stay well, young and beautiful healthniks. Some of it unquestionably works--some of it is dangerous--say a laying on of cocoa butter for cerebral palsy or dealing with conditions (glaucoma or lupus) which Cayce attempted and apparently Reilly avoids. So stick with oysterplant and dunk in Epsom salts.
