Castor Oil Packs
Benefits and History
Castor oil and castor oil packs have been used therapeutically for centuries in Egypt, India, Greece, Rome, Persia, China, Africa and the Americas. It was also recommended by physicians in the 17th century in Europe for internal and external use.
In more recent times, castor oil was suggested in many of Edgar Cayce's (the "sleeping prophet) readings. Edgar Cayce was a man who would go into a trance and be able to see people's health problems and suggest different natural treatments. He did these readings between the years of 1924 to 1944.
Cayce recommended castor oil packs in 545 of his readings for many different conditions including gastrointestinal problems, to heal lesions and adhesions,for inflammatory conditions, and to draw acid out of the body. He also suggested the packs to increase circulation of the lymph system and to stimulate the liver, gallbladder and other organs.
They are great to use in conjunction with colon cleansing to aid in eliminations. They also help to soften gallstones which makes it easier for them to pass when doing a liver-gallbladder flush, and in some instances dissolve gallstones altogether.
