Nourishing the Body Temple
Edgar Cayce's Approach to Nutrition
"It is a classic and a great educational tool for all those interested in the Cayce concept of diet."
"Nourishing the Body Temple provides a very good holistic perspective to the subject of 'whole self' nourishment."
"The Cayce readings gave the world an unprecedented source of insights on how food energies interact with body, mind and spirit to create health or illness; Simone has assembled these for us in this wonderful collection of nutritional guidelines and cooking instructions and complemented them with her own expertise as a professional nutritionist. This is a book that you have to read for yourself to appreciate its value. Thank you, Simone, for this gift to all of us and God bless."
