Castor Oil – The Amazing Healer

Edgar Cayce, a medical intuitive known as the “sleeping prophet”, introduced castor oil packs for the treatment of many conditions. In many of his writings, Cayce professed that castor oil can be used to treat a variety of health conditions such as arthritis, liver, intestinal disorders, tumors, cysts and skin conditions.

Research has shown that castor oil has a unique chemical profile rich in ricinoleic acid which is known to exist in nature only in castor oil. Research also shows that castor oil has an increase in lymphocyte production and the level of activity of T-cell lymphocyte.  T-cells lymphocyte is from bone marrow and the thymus gland, it can identify and kill invaders such as virus, bacteria and fungi.

Castor Oil can be picked up at almost any grocery store or natural health food  stores. The oil packs are easy to use and make. Cayce recommends serveral layers of white wool flannel (hold heat better), but cotton flannel will work.

Warm the castor oil to skin temp in a non metallic pot. Soak the flannel in the oil. Should be just enough to soak but not make it dripping. Cover the flannel with plastic food wrap. This will make sure that no oil gets on your heating pad. Lay down and place the pack over the area of concern with a  heating pad on top. Place a heavy towel on top of the heating pad. This will keep constant warmth throughout the treatment. The treatment should last for about 30 min to 1 hour. Cayce’s advice is to meditate during the treatment. This is about mind, body and spirit connection. Healing the body needs connection to the mind and spirit. It makes sense.

For a non-cute condition it’s ok to do the treatment three times a week. Every other night for three weeks with the fourth week off. For acute situation, use for 30 mins a night for five nights, take two nights off, then repeat the cycle for two weeks or until the conditional is resolved. In either case talk with your health care provider.

*Don’t use if pregnant, during heavy times of bleeding and intestinal conditions.
