Healing the Energy Body

By Len Kasten

The Cayce Appliances Rediscovered
The Medicine of the 21st Century Now, with the 21st Century almost upon us, it is becoming increasingly clear to many of those in the alternative health movement, both practitioners and patients, that good health is not obtained by simply treating physical cells and organs. More and more, as they observe the startling results of certain holistic practices, they are coming to the inescapable conclusion that freedom from disease, and vibrant good health has more to do with that aspect of the body that is apparently bio-electric and invisible, which is to say - non-physical. More recently it has been referred to as the "bioplasmic," or "energy" body. Alternative healing techniques such as acupuncture, yoga, polarity therapy, hypnotherapy, psychic healing, and other modalities, manipulate the energy flow in this body, which appears to improve physical health dramatically. It has also been noticed that positive mental states (Bernie Siegal, Depak Chopra, Bill Moyers, et al), even humor (Norman Cousins) have a beneficial effect on health. The "mind," in this context, is clearly not the physical brain, but rather something that uses the brain. This suggests that it would probably be the bio-electric counterpart of the brain. Furthermore, thanks to Kirlian photography, this bio-electric body can actually be seen, and relative health can be diagnosed by the colors and vibrancy showing up on the Kirlian photograph. So, they have come to conclude, therefore, that the medicine of the 21st Century will expand and improve on these techniques, and will focus primarily on the bioplasmic body and on mind-body reciprocal influences. The Electrical Body Freud was the first to propose the existence of something called "psychic energy," which he named the "libido," a concept that the hard-headed scientific physicians of his time found to be laughable. Then, the Theosophists spoke of the "seven bodies of Man." But it was Edgar Cayce who took the matter out of the realm of psychological and metaphysical speculation, and brought it right down to practical application. Cayce was full of surprises. In the voluminous pages of health-related Cayce readings at the A.R.E are many strange remedies, most of which were never heard of before he spoke of them, e.g. animated ash, and atomic iodine. But

He claims that the physical body is suffused with electricity.When any force in any organ. wires from each pole with nickel plates on the ends are placed on the body. when the temperature has cooled sufficiently.. the life force departs. that particular organism. change it... Conversely. "the human body (is) made up of electronic vibration.. From other Eastern sources we learn that it is highly differentiated and has seven major energy centers called the chakras. The Radial Active Appliance From the teachings of acupuncture practitioners.unit of vibration necessary for the sustenance of." To translate loosely and taking some liberties." This is basically heresy as far as the medical model is concerned. and then feed it back. and supplying it to a deficient part. taking it from a part of the body where there is a surplus. "the lowest form of electrical forces that move as energies from the etheronic forces. he is saying here that the bioelectric body gives life by acting as the intermediary between the life force and the physical body... and gives very specific instructions for constructing two different models. we learn that the bioplasmic body is a highly complex etheric organism. They appear to be some sort of batteries capable of accumulating and/or boosting an extremely low electrictical charge. laced with hundreds of meridians and dotted with 700 energy focal points." He says.." and "all energy is electrical in its activity in a manifested form.physical existence. He is taking the position that what we refer to as physical energy does not come from the consumption and oxidation of food.000 of the health readings. This device is constructed by attaching two 5 inch rods. and equilibrium in.through (in) electronic energy. He mentions these devices in over 1.. both of high-carbon steel. to an insulated plate with 2 pieces of glass between them. he recommended the Radial Active Appliance. Cayce puts it this way. he says. Consequently each part of the physical body has a different electrical vibratory rate based on its bioplasmic counterpart.strangest of all are the "Rube Goldberg" appliances that he recommended for a wide array of ailments from mild arthritis all the way up to neurological disease. and even cancer.. The entire unit is then sealed into a copper container.. which he claims to be identical with the "life force. but rather from an external source. The body's electrical pulsations are.. and.. and that is what we call death.e.or the electrical creative forces. with each atom and element of the body..

It is then immersed in ice water contained in a non-metallic bucket. i.. The structure and organization of the physical body corresponds to the differentiation of the bioplasmic body. Cayce says that these devices tap the body's inherent electrical energy." To redistribute the "electronic" energy. each organ and organism of same.. we can reasonably conclude that when it departs.

"It will be found to aid the body in every direction." His claims for this appliance sometimes border on the extravagent .the Wet Cell Appliance. he says.many .for even those of the sensory system in eyes..S.many .placement was carefully spelled out by Cayce. and could even boomerang and damage the nervous system (3618). of "making a better coordination between all. but uses different materials. and the thoughts are negative. He says.".10 inches. the circulation and the endocrine system. Then they are rotated to the four different wrist-ankle combinations from day to day. The plate on the wire from the positive copper pole is first placed on the spine at various points in the dorsal (now thoracic) region. The pole length is still a subject of controversy. ".. Cayce suggested this device as a sort of general tonic. be used also for prayer and meditation.. expressing good expectations. it also improves those systems most affected by the may keep its body in almost perfect accord for many . but by balancing and rejuvenating the neurological network.. i. of the mind-body influences.a type of appliance for bringing rest to the weary.

But nervous disorders. without a mental-spiritual transformation. et al are prime candidates for Wet Cell treatments. Just as with the Radial device. Apparently it restores the proper vibratory pattern for nerve cell reproduction. MS. with age. each solution type affecting the body differently. this device rejuvenates the nervous system at a cellular level.

Deterioration of the bioplasmic body evidently can result from a variety of mental-spiritual pathologies. the effects of which cascade throughout the system.before being placed on the body. he recommended a solution of his electrically charged iodine. This plate is placed on the solar plexus. could only be a temporary palliative. the electrical vibrations of whatever substance is used. whereas the Silver Nitrate works on the endocrine system.

He believes that his devices are the most faithful reproductions of the original Cayce designs as obtained from a careful study of the readings. which appears to have been designed for electrical purposes. He built thousands of the Radial-Active devices and the Wet Cells in his garage for over 25 years. Thomas worked with Babcoke for several months just prior to his death. but was apparently deeply into metaphysics and the Cayce readings. claiming that even Babcoke's models had flaws. after Cayce and Godfrey had passed away.manipulation. and a lifelong devotee of the Cayce readings.E.
