One of our goals as editors is to provide practical information to our readers to help enhance their health and vitality as well as address specific ailments. Our goal is to provide insights from the Edgar Cayce readings and encourage active participation with their health care professionals. Because the topic we are addressing could be potentially serious in nature (cysts, which, according to Cayce, can become tumorous), we insist that you begin by obtaining a medical diagnosis of your condition if any kind of lump or bump is involved!
Harmless Ovarian Cysts
I began my research regarding cysts when I heard of a woman who was diagnosed through ultrasound with a harmless, fluid-filled ovarian cyst. I began searching the readings on ovarian cysts, which started me on a journey of understanding I had not anticipated. Quite directly (searching on “cysts ovary”) I found a reading that was very specific to this condition.
“And there has been a cyst formed in the right ovary. This can be determined best by the proper character of x-ray or shadowgraph. We find that the body would find much better activity where the weather and dampness is not so severe, where the body may have the advantage of the Ultra-Violet Rays from sun and sand. We would apply Glyco-Thymoline Packs over the ovarian area, or the right groin, followed by the proper application of massage. This would necessarily be rather in the form of the neuropathic massage, where the gland centers of the lymph circulation are stimulated to activity. This is better than a purely mechanical adjustment, though an osteopathic gynecologist might give good results, unless early operative measures are sought. If the osteopathic or neuropathic treatments are given, and there is the application of the Glyco-Thymoline Packs in the areas of the pubic center as well as the umbilical center and the area of the sternum or breast bone, we find that there may be the absorption of this cyst.” (3472-1)
The reading goes on to give more information in the event that the pain persisted, but this basic therapy is one that might be of help if you (or someone you care about) has a routine ovarian cyst.
Another reading, more general in nature regarding cysts, also pointed to Glyco-Thymoline packs.
“That there are tendencies for accumulations into pockets in the lymph circulation is indicated by the acute conditions which arise at times through the areas of the lymph circulation; as in abdominal area, as in parts of the lung and throat, as in the head; and as found to be existent in a more acute form in cysts on parts of the body, especially in the head area. For these–disregarding other conditions–we would apply a poultice of Glyco-Thymoline, as a pack; using three to four thicknesses of gauze thoroughly moistened and applied to these cysts–warm; not hot but warm. Change the application every twenty minutes, doing this for about an hour each day.” (2957-1)
An Unexpected Turn
My study took an unexpected turn when I spoke with my colleague Elaine about cysts. Elaine is gathering information for a book she is writing on the lymph. She indicated that I should search on “lymph pockets” – that this phrase was often used by Cayce to describe what we know as cysts. This approach opened up an incredible door that we can all benefit from understanding AND working with in our personal health plan.
What I came to learn, in reading after reading on cysts and lymph pockets, is that such conditions seem to be rather normal – that lymph pockets or cysts form – and dissipate – quite regularly in a healthy individual. What Cayce also points out, however, is that if the lymph is sluggish and the pockets do not dissipate, trouble may well ensue. One reading states,
“Reflexly we find that the organs of the deeper circulation are affected–heart, lungs, liver, kidneys; though these in the present are not other than functionally disturbed from nerves. But, through congestion, through the non-elimination of poisons, through the non-emptying of those various portions where there are the tendencies to form lymph pockets, these might become tumorous–or might even become of a more serious nature, if the chemical balance were so unbalanced as to cause the setting up of an activity within themselves.” (2581-1)
So, a journey which began by finding a complementary therapy for a common ovarian cyst resulted in an all-encompassing admonition to keep the lymph flowing. How? Exercise. Stretch. Massage. Drinking plenty of water. And keeping the body in an alkaline state. These lifestyle guidelines are cornerstones to a long and vital life!
