Castor Oil Information
It's not just a tablespoon "to cure what ails you" anymore. According to doctors and caregivers, warming castor oil and placing it over the abdominal region can help your body function more effectively.
Clinical evidence now confirms that castor oil packs improve eliminations, assimilations, lymphatic circulation, and even the production of certain T-cells. If your body absorbs nutrients, eliminates wastes, filters toxins, and bolsters the immune system more effectively; you are going to be a healthier person overall. Think about it. You may even be preventing chronic disease.
Doctors at the A.R.E. Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona use castor oil for virtually every aspect of health, treating the eyes, ears, immune system, various aches and pains, moles, warts and other skin disorders. Castor oil packs are recommended by many doctors for relief from menstrual problems, cysts and irregularities. Edgar Cayce recommended castor oil packs in 545 readings for many different therapeutic purposes, including improvement of assimilations and eliminations.
We cannot make any medicinal claims, but we don't need to. Healers from many ancient cultures have used castor oil for over 3000 years. In fact it was called "Palma Christi," the palm of Christ.
Oil That Heals by Dr. McGarey, castor oil packs
have been shown to shrink polyps in the colon and correct inflammatory
conditions. It also eventually penetrates through the colon wall where it
works to loosen the impacted material from the wall. The liver and gall
bladder are benefited and gall stones will eventually dissolve by using these
packs over a period of time. Because of this, it is a powerful adjunct to
colon hydrotherapy. Castor oil packs do so many wonderful things that

When you first use your new castor oil pack kit, take the wool flannel and fill it with castor oil so that there are no dry areas but not so much that it is dripping. Take the material and double it and then put in on one side of the pack holder so that its edges go up under the flanges on both sides. Do this after you have put the heat pad in the pocket on the other side and after you have laid it out flat so that it is easier to work with.
Turn on the heat pad so that it can be heating the pack. While you are waiting, you can pour an amount of oil in one hand and rub in on your whole abdominal area over the colon and liver areas. Have a terry cloth towel conveniently located to wipe your hands off. When the pack has heated for 10 to 15 minutes, carefully pick it up and strap it over the liver area or any problem areas. Generally it is so large that it automatically covers a large portion of the colon and liver anyway.
Use it for 1 1/2 to 3 hours at a time or as long as you desire. The longer, the better. (Be sure not to have the heating pad set on high if you plan to fall asleep.) You can use this during the super cleanse program for 4 consecutive days per week. In critical cases it can be done on a daily basis. It is very healing. You really can't over do it.
When you are done, leave the pack intact and simply fold it over and put it on a shelf with your terry cloth towel and old clothes that you were wearing during this self treatment. You do not have to clean the pack for many weeks. When you decide to clean it, wash it in mild Ivory soap and then boil it in a pot to remove all residues.
