I have used castor oil packs for myself and my patients for more than three decades. I first heard about them through the work of Edgar Cayce, who spoke about castor oil packs as the cure for just about everything. His assertions led to a fair amount of research into the mechanisms and effectiveness of castor oil and castor oil packs, which I'll explore in an upcoming podcast.
Castor oil packs — that is, castor oil applied to the skin — seem to work by detoxifying the tissues under the pack; stimulating bile flow, which helps the body rid itself of toxins; stimulating blood flow in the tissues under the pack and improving lymphatic drainage. The conditions I have seen helped by the regular use of castor oil packs include menstrual and fertility problems, chronic inflammation and pain, general toxic symptoms and even weight issues. I have no doubt that castor oil packs belong in the toolbox of every natural healer.
The only issues I had with castor oil packs were that the supplies were often hard to come by, and the procedure was messy and inconvenient. Many people, despite receiving benefits, simply wouldn't continue their regular use because of the hassle of these practical issues. Thankfully, the people at Queen of the Thrones have solved this problem. Their castor oil packs and high quality castor oil are all that is needed to do a proper and effective pack, and their ingenious design eliminates the need for electric heating pads or even the need to lay still for an hour.
In our upcoming podcast, we will go over this new castor oil pack design, how it works, how to use it, how often to use it, and the effects the creators have seen with its use. These packs and oils are a welcome step in the ongoing quest for safe, easy, affordable, natural solutions for common medical issues.
