Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. Renews Partnership

with Official Supplier of Cayce Remedies, Baar Products


Virginia Beach, Va. – The Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) recently renewed its partnership with Baar Products, Inc. Considered by many to be “the father of holistic medicine,” Edgar Cayce produced a tremendous legacy of information about healing the human body the holistic way. This information included formulas for healthful tonics, beneficial oils, rejuvenating remedies and more to help stimulate and support the body's own healing mechanisms. Today, Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) partners with Baar Products to offer a special collection of products and remedies drawn from Cayce’s work.

As the official exclusive supplier of Cayce health care products, Baar works closely with the A.R.E. to ensure that original formulations are used whenever possible. “From Respicol® cough syrup to Crudoleum® hair care to Arthro® joint relief, all of our ingredients are selected and formulated to meet the highest standards our customers have come to know and expect,” said Bruce Baar, MS, ND, owner and CEO of Baar Products. “Purity and freshness of our products is our highest priority.” The company recently opened a new fully solar manufacturing facility, and Baar maintains 130 acres of pristine land in Pennsylvania and Tennessee to preserve and provide among the world’s best natural products.

A popular example of a Cayce health remedy is the castor oil pack. At its most basic, a castor oil “pack” involves placing castor oil externally on the abdomen. Castor oil is used to improve assimilation, eliminations, and circulation, especially of the lymphatic system.   At the A.R.E. Health Center & Spa, and the A.R.E. Bookstore & Gift Shop, only Baar Products’ castor oil is sold or used. Baar’s castor oil is trademarked as Palma Christos®, and is organic, cold-pressed, and cold-processed, with no solvents, synthetics, or other additives, just as Cayce himself would have wanted.

“We are blessed to have a caring, conscientious company like Baar to help us continue the Cayce work,” said A.R.E. CEO and Executive Director Kevin Todeschi. “Ours is a win-win relationship benefiting all involved—especially our members, spa clients, and customers.”

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) founded the non-profit Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in 1931, to explore spirituality, holistic health, intuition, dream interpretation, psychic development, reincarnation, and ancient mysteries—all subjects that frequently came up in the more than 14,000 documented psychic readings given by Cayce, who died in 1945. The mission of A.R.E. is to create opportunities for profound personal change in body, mind, and spirit through the wisdom found in the Edgar Cayce material. The Virginia Beach headquarters is a popular site for locals and tourists with free daily lectures, a Health Center & Spa, the Cayce/Reilly® School of Massage, an extensive metaphysical library, a meditation garden, a stone labyrinth, and a bookstore and gift shop. The campus is also home to Atlantic University which offers two masters degrees (Transpersonal Psychology and Leadership Studies) through an online platform, as well as continuing education and certificate programs. Through A.R.E.’s many programs, services, publications, and membership outreach, individuals from all walks of life and religious backgrounds are provided with tools for personal transformation and healing at all levels—body, mind, and spirit.
