Herbal Remedy 745-1: Olive
Oil Taken Internally in Small Doses
Olive oil taken internally in small doses was recommended
by Edgar Cayce in many cases involving problems with assimilation and elimination.
It was also regularly recommended after certain therapeutic interventions
such as castor oil packs and the three day apple fast. The action
of olive oil was described as:
"The [olive] oil adds to the elasticity of the functioning
of the intestinal tract, acting also as a food value to the system itself."
For intestinal healing, olive oil was often used
in conjunction with similar therapies such as yellow saffron tea and slippery
elm bark water.

castor oil pack series or apple diet. May be helpful for diarrhea,
leaky gut syndrome manifesting as psoriasis.

A quarter to half a teaspoonful every three or four
hours during the waking period. Take for three or four days and rest for
three or four days before beginning again.
