Remedy 4000-1: Slippery
Elm Bark Water
Edgar Cayce recommended slippery elm bark dissolved
in water for gastro-intestinal healing. This herb was consistently
prescribed for skin conditions such as psoriasis to heal the walls of the
small intestine (leaky gut syndrome) which the readings often cited as
the source of the problem. The readings stated that slippery elm
bark water would act as a rebuilding force to the mucus coat of the intestine
and lower duodenum.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
Slippery elm may be helpful for any condition involving
intestinal irritation or suspected leaky gut syndrome.
Caution: Slippery elm is not advised for pregnant
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Taken orally once each day, prepare the water by
putting a pinch of elm bark in a glass of water and let stand 15 minutes.
To make the solution more palitable, an ice cube may be added. If
belching occurs, decrease the amount of slippery elm bark.

CAYCE QUOTE ON REMEDY 4000-1
Once each day prepare slippery elm, or the ground
elm. Put a pinch of this in a glass of water and let stand long enough
for the water and the elm to become active together, forming, as it were,
an activity in same. This will be easier to take, and it will be
preferable, if there is a small quantity of ice in same.
