The formula name, Sulflax, was created by combining the name of one of its key ingredients and its function. It contains the prefix “sulf” (sulfur) and “lax” (laxative), its remedial purpose. Its description and purpose appear in 69 Edgar Cayce readings for 57 individuals.
Anyone slightly familiar with Cayce’s physical readings is aware that enhancing better eliminations is a major component for achieving better health–part of Dr. Harold J. Reilly’s C.A.R.E. formula: Circulation, Assimilation, Relaxation, Elimination. While Cayce was not prone to suggest the taking of laxatives, considering them too harsh for some systems, he did offer other means of assisting and stimulating eliminations. This particular formula is one such remedy, recommended to individuals from the ages of 21 months to 74 years, whose readings cover the years from 1924 to 1944.
Amount and Frequency
Typical of Cayce’s approach to tailor his advice to fit the individual, the frequency of recommended use often varied. It could extend from once per day for 2 to 3 days, up to as long as 2 weeks; most of the suggestions given were in the middle range of this spread–from 3 to 7 days. Some were advised to take Sulflax in a series, such as 3 to 5 days, rest 5 days, then repeat. With just a few exceptions, it was to be taken daily in the morning before breakfast; for some every other day was suitable, and for a few twice a day–morning and evening–was recommended. It could be taken either dry or mixed in water; several readings note a glass of water, while a few mention warm or hot water.
Two readings state that even syrup or honey could be added.
The length of time recommended for taking Sulflax often depended upon one’s reaction to it, so that once eliminations were begun it could be discontinued. Ten days and 2 weeks were the longest recommended times given in the readings for taking Sulflax consistently. As mentioned earlier, it could be taken in a series, with rest periods in between repetitions.
The readings mention physical and dietary precautions that should also be observed. To at least 16 individuals, Cayce cautioned them against getting their feet damp or wet during the period when the mixture was in their systems–in other words, during the time when one is taking it. To a few of them he explained that this doesn’t mean one shouldn’t bathe, but to guard against overexposure or getting overheated or too cold, also to avoid swimming and to stay out of the rain.
Dietary suggestions, another mainstay in the Cayce readings, include avoiding excessive starches and fats, no fish and shellfish, and very little meat during the days of taking the mixture. One person was advised to eat body-building foods, which would create a laxative reaction: citrus fruit juices, cereals (but not on the same day or at the same meal as the citrus), fresh raw vegetables, and whole wheat (as a mush)–all could be eaten during the time of taking the laxative. Several were reminded to drink plenty of water–six to eight glasses a day was the frequent recommendation.
As to the purpose of the remedy, Cayce describes it as a purifier and cleanser for the body–for the circulatory and digestive systems as well as a stimulant for the elimination system. In its role as a mild laxative, it not only will “increase the eliminations and… set up the better assimilating forces for the body” (Cayce), but it will also cleanse and purify the alimentary canal (the passageway extending from the mouth to the anus through which food is processed and digested).
For one 19-year-old U.S. Navy serviceman, suffering from headaches, rashes, dizzy spells, and what Cayce often referred to as incoordination of eliminations, his reading states that the laxative “will change the chemical reactions, purify the glandular system, and flush the alimentary canal for greater improvement.” (Cayce)
An adult woman (no age given) asked in her fourth reading if it was OK to use the laxative whenever she felt the need for it. The reading’s answer: “It is well to use same. It is not habit forming, it will not injure the intestinal tract nor cause any great disturbance–if there is the nominal activity of the body.” (Cayce) This excerpt indicates the mild laxative effects of this remedy on one’s system.
Following is an alphabetical listing of the health conditions that individuals presented in their readings and were advised to take Sulflax. Poor eliminations may be the indirect or direct cause of these physical ailments for which the recipients asked for help. It is always advisable to seek advice from a health professional when beginning a new regimen of treatment.
The indications from the readings include: abrasions, acne, adenoiditis, after-effects of the flu, anemia, arthritis, asthenia, asthma, boils, cancer, carbuncles, chilblains, colds, congestion, cysts, deafness, dermatitis, dizzy spells, dysmenorrhea, eczema, gastritis, headaches, hypotension, infections, lesions, liver/kidney incoordination, moles, nasal catarrh, neuralgia, obesity, pimples, poor circulation, poor eliminations, psoriasis, rashes, ringworm, shingles, tumors, toxemia, ulcers, and venereal disease.
It’s important to keep in mind that very rarely is only one item suggested for a particular health problem. Cayce offered other remedies, such as osteopathic adjustments, the three-day apple diet, massages, steams, or colonics, either during or after the taking of Sulflax. Each remedy has its own function to aid and assist the body in coming to a better balanced condition.
In the Reports section of the readings there are instances of beneficial effects from taking Sulflax for boils and carbuncles, some using the term “cured.” One woman, who had gotten the information about the remedy from researching the readings, decided to use it for her outbreak of pimples. The pimples, she wrote in 1976, “went away…and an abscess was stopped cold in its tracks.”
Based on these and others’ experiences, when the recommendations are carried out, there is the potential of a successful outcome.
