You've been working with the Edgar Cayce material in your practice for over 10 years. How did you get interested in Edgar Cayce?
When I was a young boy, there were many books and materials in my home on metaphysical subjects including, Edgar Cayce. I heard his name on a regular basis and knew him as a great psychic and mystic early on. We took regular trips to the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach. Psychics, channelers and mediums were friends of the family and often at our home. My sister and I frequently joke about the circumstances of our growing up - how normal it was for us to take a vacation at a yoga camp or spiritual clinic and even to participate in seances. We were definitely considered "out there." As I look back on it now I know these unforgettable experiences were part of my Karma and I am grateful.
You have said that there was a "lightening bolt beginning" to your working relationship with the A.R.E....
I have always placed great trust in the universe and the path it wished me to follow. My guides have aided me with very definite signs and signals. Approximately 6 years ago, while sitting at my desk at work, I received a very strong message - like a lightening bolt to the right side of my head. The message was clear: Bring Chiropractic to the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach. At this, I put down the book I was reading, Cayce on the Life of Jesus, and thought, "I need to move to Virginia Beach and open up a practice within the A.R.E.." My intuition told me to act right away. A frantic search for a phone number for Virginia Beach led me to Lynne Salomon (now Lynne Salomon Miceli). I was confident, based on the clarity of the message, that Charles Thomas Cayce, the grandson of Edgar Cayce, would welcome my idea with open arms. The receptionist at "The Beach" told me over the phone that I would not be able to speak with him, that I was welcome to come to the center and wait. Being somewhat and impatient person and not wanting to waste time, I immediately called my wife and asked her to pack a bag for the weekend. I rented a red Hyundai (red - which I interpreted as being a sign of good fortune), and headed down there. I explained everything to my wife, who had grown to expect some of my unpredictable behavior.
A. This has been one of the most common issues facing my patients in my 14 years of practice. My immediate response has always been that they should receive spinal adjustments (in order to stabilize the neurological signals to the lungs, which allows the lungs and sinuses to operate more efficiently) and to make certain dietary changes. The primary dietary change has been to eliminate dairy from the diet.
In an attempt to guide many of my present and future patients at the A.R.E. of New York towards a healthier and more powerful life I have taken this opportunity to answer some questions frequently asked in my practice:
A. The answer to this question in my opinion depends on your goals.
The most destructive element to our health is emotional stress! This is because it is subtle and yet insidious. Albert Einstein proved through his famous equation, E=mc2, that energy is never lost. It only changes forms. Since emotional stress is a form of energy, and not a very good one, we have created a new past-time, which involves funneling and out letting the poor energy from stress in more productive directions.
