Edgar Cayce’s Hair Loss Remedies – Pt. 1 – Crude Oil, Castor Oil etc.

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

I have not tried the crude oil method.. But I was intrigued by the Edgar Cayce’s methods and regimen suggestions, that I compiled some of the info I have below. Please note, lots of the advice is in-line with other good advice that I came across and share here, however I would not use the crude oil topical, crude oil contains benzene which is a known carcinogen.  I am not sure why crude oil would work at all… if you know more on this please contact me.

Please note, Cayce’s advice is not medical advice.. Do not apply crude oil on your scalp it contains benzene which is a known carcinogen.

Quote:

 

“To his credit, Cayce recommended a healthy diet plus herbal and vitamin supplements to encourage hair growth. He also encouraged scalp massage to promote circulation. But his first rule of hair growth was to massage pure crude oil into the scalp. Cayce said that this treatment would ‘improve both the circulation of the scalp and the tone, luster and thickness of the hair.’

Following the crude oil application two or three times a month, Cayce recommended rinsing the hair with 20% grain alcohol to make the oil easier to wash out. The final step included rubbing Vaseline into the scalp to complete the hair rejuvenation process.

Cayce was careful to recommend only pure, unrefined crude oil ? no gasoline, kerosene or motor oil – and created his own brand that he named ?Crudoleum®.? Cayce?s Crudoleum® came from Pennsylvania and was said to have the mildest odor and the easiest texture to rinse out of hair. The reason, he said, is that Pennsylvania crude is paraffin-based. Darker oil is asphalt-based and, according to Cayce, more difficult to use.

The crude oil concept has since spawned an entire line of Crudoleum® hair products, including a hair rinse, hair conditioner and hair cream.

What can I do about inflammation?

Inflammation could be caused by many factors, therein lies the challenge of knowing what is causing such inflammation. Fixing the problem at it’s root is much better than masking it.

Topically:

  • Emu oil (comment: I have not tried this)
  • copper peptides
  • ketoconazole can be used to topically partially inhibit cytokine formation.
  • Essential oils (comment: easy to apply)
  • Anything that kills scalp parasites can help reduce localized scalp inflammation
  • ACV (comment: good)
  • Kefir (comment: tried it, works but messy)
  • Xylitol (comment: I have not tried)

Diet:

  • Curcumin 95% (95% curcuminoids including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin, which are antioxidants)
  • Krill Oil
  • R-Lipoic Acid (anti Oxidant)
  • Fish oil

Read the anti-inflammatory diets posted on this website. This website has a few anti inflammatory diets and diet recommendations. To find them visit:

You should consider finding food sensitivities that you have that might be sub-clinical. These could be causing chronic inflammation that you have grown accustomed to. The best way to find foods that don’t sit well with you is to go on the elimination diet then slowly reintroduce one food item at a time. You may enjoy the benefits of eliminating foods enough to not even care to re-introduce some items.

DNA Testing vs. Diet and Exercise

Healthcare: DNA Testing vs. Diet and Exercise

Contributions of genetic alleles to disease are useful for understanding, but not in predicting disease. Diet and lifestyle are the major determinants of disease and not genes for most common diseases.

OTC Genetic Screening Kits

A recent headline touted the availability of a kit at Walgreens to screen for “predisposition” to a hundred common diseases. A few months earlier, scientists admitted that after lengthy examination of a dozen major diseases, the genetic contribution was negligible. It may now be possible to cheaply (less than $25,000) determine the sequence of the entire genome of an individual or even more cheaply test for the presence of particular genetic alleles, but that information is useless compared to diet for predicting if the person will actually get the disease. The screening kits were pulled before they reached the shelves.

Gut Flora Dominates Gut Genotype

I think that the reason why an individual’s genes don’t dominate health issues, is because the composition of meals dominates the development of the gut flora community and it is the interaction between the gut and its bacteria that dominates health. The genes of the individual are just not that important in determining disease.
