Cayce, Edgar - Cures infantile paralysis
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Edgar Cayce – Joseph Millard
When Edgar returned, the woman burst into tears. She had spent her last cent coming into town. She had walked the streets, frightened and bewildered, until something impelled her to turn in at the studio door. "I don't know what I would have done. My daughter is home alone and she is crippled from infantile paralysis."
"Crippled?" Edgar repeated. He looked down at the money in his hand, given him to pay for copying the tintype. "Could you bring her in here tomorrow? It is possible I might be able to help her to walk normally again."…………
Ed [his assistant] conducted the reading the next day, still awed by the revelation of Edgar's identity. In lieu of a stenographer, Dr. Gay, a physician whose office was nearby, was asked to sit in. He studied Edgar's clippings without comment and agreed to listen to the reading and interpret the diagnosis and suggestions. He sat with a wooden, expressionless face that revealed nothing of his thoughts. When Edgar awoke, that face was still expressionless, but Gay said quietly, "The diagnosis was sound and the treatment, while unorthodox, seems reasonable. I'll give the treatments myself." He looked at the woman and at the girl with the crippled leg. "There will be no charge."
In a month, the leg was stronger and straighter. Within a year, it was normal, and the girl could walk without a limp.
