Edeus Health Method

In May, 1975, when I was covered with garden dirt and did not want to lie down on my bed, I laid down on the wood floor. It so happened that I laid down in a supine position, without a pillow under my head, and a new health discovery was made.

I considered this great, great health discovery a gift from God to all mankind and gave it a name to reflect this. Never for one second did I think that my intellect had made this discovery. Since l969 when God called me into His service I knew He had work for me to do. Now, He has given me a health method to give to the sick.

I named this discovery the EDEUS HEALTH METHOD. EDEUS is derived from the Latin "e" meaning "from" and "deus" meaning "God".

Its magnificence is overwhelming.

Its simplicity is awesome.

Its fantastic results achieved so easily and inexpensively are unbelievable.

It requires no scientific validity.

Its potential does not need to be established before it can be accepted.

It needs no approval by anyone.

It is self-administered.

It is for everyone: the sick, the well, the young and the old.

It is a health principle and should be a lifestyle for everyone.

The Edeus Health Method has two major functions:

1. to restore and maintain normal body structure.

2. to establish and maintain the body into as near a balance as possible at all times.

The value of normal body structure has been almost totally overlooked in our health care system today. From the beginning of time, it should have been obvious; but unfortunately man's eyes, for the most part, have been closed to the self-healing qualities within the normal structured body. Dr. Daniel David Palmer, (1845-1913), who developed the Chiropractic profession, and Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, (1828-1917) who developed the Osteopathic profession, have been in the foreground of recognizing the power of healing controlled by body structure.

If we only stop for just a second and think about it, we can easily see that we cannot have good health when our bodies are twisted and distorted from their natural design.

How can our lungs possibly function in a normal, healthful way when our backs are curved preventing them from expanding fully?

How can our digestive organs function in a normal, healthful way when our hips are twisted causing them to be displaced out of their normal positions?

How can our glands and organs funtion normally when their ducts are twisted and blocked?

How can our great nervous system carry out its normal functions when its lines are obstructed and its signals cannot flow freely?

How can we possibly have health when we are functioning in abnormal body structures???

There are many causes for sickness, but certainly abnormal body structure must be recognized as a major cause. It is my hope that everyone who reads this book will gain a better understanding of normal body structure and its relationship to good health.

(In the past I have used the hardwood floor to practice the Edeus Health Method. I now have made an improvement upon that by building an Edeus Health Bed.

The big advantage of the bed over the floor is the ease by which a person can lie down and get up. Less bending is required to get into the bed than required to get on the floor, and less effort is required for getting up.

An Edeus Health Bed should be the height of one's knees to make lying down easier. Steps or a platform may be used to achieve this.)

Sideview of the Normal Body Structure

If a person with a normal body structure stood parallel to a straight line, there would be five points of the body touching the line equally. They are: head, thoracic, buttocks, calves, and heels.

The Normal Body is a Balanced Body

The normal body is balanced vertically and horizonally. The shoulders and hips are level, and the spine straight.

Normal Organ Placement Essential to
Good Health

The organs of the body cannot function properly when they are twisted out of their normal placements. When they cannot function normally, sickness is the result.

The Body's Powerful Nervous System Affects All Cells

All cells of the body are controlled by the nervous system making this body system a very powerful one indeed.

Getting Relief Now!!

While it would be nice if we all had nice, normal, healthy, balanced, body structures, the fact is that we do not. Most people have not thought in terms of the normal and have not recognized its value. Therefore, to restore normal structure, we must start with the situation as it is now and work toward that goal.

The length of time needed for correcting a person's body structure depends upon the problems in it. Obviously, the persons with less problems require less time to correct them. The more severe the problems, the longer it takes. While normal body structure is the long term goal, most sick persons want relief now!!


The secret of obtaining a great measure of relief now is to bring the body structure into balance even though it is still in a distorted state.

When the balance is obtained, it has been my experience that:

  • 1. pain leaves

  • 2. fevers fall

  • 3. infections leave the body

  • 4. cells start functioning

  • 5. the body starts self-healing in many, many conditions

    At times, the results are nothing short of miraculous.

    Some persons are able to obtain a balance very quickly and start their turnaround to regaining their health. Others may take a longer period of time. All depends upon the severity of the problems in the body structure.

    To maintain a balanced body structure, to the greatest degree possible at all times, requires living a lifestyle that promotes that purpose.

    All Things Can Be Balanced

    Everything, no matter how impossible it may seem, has a balance point.

    The box above shows an example of what appears to be a difficult balancing project, but is quite easy and even a child can do it.

    Bringing about a balance in a twisted and misaligned body is the job of the Edeus Health Bed

    Principle on which the Edeus Health Bed Works

    The bed serves as an unyielding balance line. The body will yield to this balance line and will become balanced itself. The principle for this is:

    When two objects are placed one upon the other, the one of lesser resistance will yield to the other one.

    The Edeus Health Bed works automatically. All a person needs to do is to sleep upon it. While the person sleeps, the bed works. What health method could be easier?

    As the body yields to the balance line, the misalignments of the body slowly change and normal structure (our goal) becomes a step closer.

    Each day the EDEUS HEALTH BED strives to keep the body in balance to give its occupant the greatest degree of health that it can at all times.

    Some persons are able to obtain a balance very quickly and start their turnaround to regaining their health. Others may take a longer period of time. All depends upon the severity of the problem in the body structure.

    Maintaining a balanced body structure, to the greatest degree possible at all times, requires living a lifestyle that promotes that purpose.

    Master Gland of the Body

    The master gland of the body is said to be the pituitary gland. It influences almost every metabolic process of the body either directly or indirectly. Its anatomical position is at the very tip of the spinal cord to which it is connected by a long, very thin neck deep within the brain.

    When there is a pull upon the spinal cord at any point, I believe a stricture occurs on the thin neck leading to the pituitary gland altering its normal function. When this pull is taken off the spinal cord and a balance obtained, the stricture would also be

    removed from the thin neck.

    The influence of the balanced spinal cord upon the pituitary gland makes it an extremely desired goal.

    Building the Edeus Health Bed

    Size 4' x 6'

    Edeus Health Beds are easy to build. Almost anyone can build one following our instructions. The instructions below are for a bed size 4 feet x 6 feet, but the measurements can be varied to meet your own desired size.

    1. Cut a 1/2 inch, interior, one side smooth, plywood to 4' x 6.'

    2. Cut 6 legs 2" x 4" x 21".

    3. Cut 4 pieces of 1" x 4" x 6 feet.

    4. Cut 6 pieces of 1" x 4" x 46 1/2" for cross sections.

    5. Lay 3 legs flat on floor. Nail 1" x 4" 6 feet at the top edge of the first and outer leg. Then match the middle of the third leg to the middle of the board and nail in place.

    6. Lay another 1" x 4" x 6 feet board near the middle of the legs and nail in place.

    7. Repeat 5 and 6 for the legs on other side.

    8. Stand the two sides up with the 1" x 4" x 6 feet on the outside.

    l0. Place the smooth side of the plywood facing up on the frame and nail in place.

    Adjusting to the Edeus Health Bed

    Everyone who is able to lie on a soft bed can adjust to the Edeus Health Bed by following these simple procedures.

    1. Make an Edeus Health Bed

    a. Build (or buy) a hard, level, smooth bed the size you desire.

    b. It must have strong enough supports so that it will not bend at all. This is absolutely essential.

    c. Make it knee high. Use a step or platform to make it the proper height.


    2. Pad the bed sufficiently with quilts and blankets so you can sleep all night in comfort. There is no need for anyone to miss a night of rest while adapting to the Edeus Health Bed.

    a. Each night thereafter, remove a portion of the padding until you are able to sleep upon the bare surface without any problems. (A thin sheet is permissible, if desired.)
    b. The faster you are able to adjust to this bed, the sooner positive results should start.
    c. The average adjusting period is two to three weeks.
    3. Take a warm shower before lying down whenever possible.
    a. Let the water strike the back of the neck and run down the entire spine. This relaxes the muscles and will help the vertebras shift into a more balanced alignment.
    b. Dress in thin clothes. Eliminate as much as possible between you and the bare wood.
    4. Lie fully extended on your back without a pillow.
    a. In the beginning you may have to gradually get used to being fully extended depending upon the condition of your body structure. If you feel that you must use a pillow, do so but eliminate it as quickly as possible.
    5. Allow your hands to lie comfortably at your sides.

    6. Clear the mind and think only pleasant thoughts.

    7. Go to sleep if desired.

    Alternative Positions

    Since it is difficult to lay for long periods of time in one position, you may turn on either side. When on the side, you must use a pillow to support the head. The pillow should be large enough to support the head in a straight line.

    You may find that one side will give you relief while the other side brings on your symptoms. Observe yourself. Learn which side makes you feel the best and then use only that side.

    Never sleep on the abdomen. This puts the neck in a twist and is very detrimental to you.

    Safety Rules

    1. Never lie on back immediately after eating.

    2. Do not leave a small child on its back when unattended.

    3. Observe skin closely for pressure sores. Add additional padding as needed to prevent them. hr>

    Things You May Experience

    Hard Spot
    When you lie upon the Edeus Health Bed, you may notice that one spot is pressing against the bed harder than the rest of the body.

    This spot is your point of greatest extension and it is exactly where you need the greatest amount of pressure applied to bring your body into balance. Gradually that spot will be` balanced and eliminated.

    The "hard spot" may change from time to time to other places. The point of greatest extension changes as the body is straightened.

    The Edeus Health Bed works automatically and continuously seeking out the point of greatest extension to apply the greatest degree of pressure and thereby keeping the body in balance as much as possible at all times.

    Clicks and Pops

    When the skeletal system shifts into a more normal alignment, many times it is possible to hear these movements. They sound like clicks and pops (and sometimes clunks).

    These movements are the result of the Edeus Health Bed doing its job of straightening the body structure.

    Pain on Movement

    On rare occasion, there may be some pain associated with a movement either in the joint or the organ that is involved. When this occurs, it usually subsides in a short time.


    One of the great, great functions of the Edeus Health Bed is bringing about a balance in the nervous system. When this occurs, the cells should start draining toxins.

    You may notice an increase in drainage from one or more body openings such as the sinuses, lungs, bladder, rectum, vagina, penis, etc. The amount and source of drainage will vary according to the conditions of each person.

    Rejoice when this occurs because your body is responding to the bed and toxins are now draining out.


    When a lot of drainage starts, the body may become flooded with the massive release of toxins. This sometimes makes a person feel as though they have a cold. However, this is not a cold and do not treat it as such. This is a housecleaning and is exactly what we want. The body has now come into a self-healing state.

    Changing Symptoms

    As the body structure straightens, different nerves, muscles, and organ placements come into play. This sometimes creates new and different symptoms. Sometimes, old symptoms reappear. As the body continues to straighten, these will run their course and others will appear until the
