[WARNING!] 03/15/2009: K.Lynn from Mt. Healthy, Ohio: "I've noticed at reading some of the posts that alot of people use heating pads for their ailments. and that's understandable because heating pads are comforting. But PLEASE ask yourself if your ailment could have an infection at it's source otherwise, you could mistakenly SPREAD an infection. I did this with myself, when I should have been using an ice pack to contain the infection. GOD BLESS!!!!"Replies
11/16/2010: Katie from Seattle, Wa, Usa. replies: "Actually, your body heats up the area on purpose, as many infectious agents don't do well at high temperatures (they don't do well at low temps either, but neither does your own body) A feverish area is good, as it means that your body is doing what it is supposed to. Also, while applying a hot pad may increase inflammation in the short term, in the long term, you will be better for it."
[YEA] 06/02/2009: Jon from Singapore: "I had severe piles (internal) & haemorrhoids (external). Visit to doctor who gave some creams & advised surgery if the haemorrhoids didnt shrink. Read about castor oil and tried it as last resort as I didn't fancy the idea of surgery. A friend of mine who had piles surgery discovered he couldnt control his bowels well sometime after surgery.
Anyway, what i did was to coat the rear area, especially the inflamed tissues with castor oil twice a day after visiting the bathroom. Amazingly, after a couple of days, the area went back to normal and I did not have to go back to the doctor.
I will try castor oil for other various problems that I read about on earthclinic. Castor oil rocks!"Replies

02/22/2011: Geralyn_d from Atlanta, Ga replies: "I was researching liver congestion and found this. Relieving the congestion did help the anal pressure I was having so thought I would pass it on... Do a liver pack if you have hemmorrhoids... this is just one place I found it...
"One-third of rectal veins travel to the liver via the portal venous system. Significantly, if pressure in the portal vein rises from liver cirrhosis or parasites, increased blood volume and pressure may dilate rectal veins to the extent that internal and external hemorrhoids are created. It follows from this that any toxicity or impairment of the liver might be contributory to hemorrhoids. If you find this hard to understand, imagine the venous blood(from the rectal area) traveling upward through the portal vein to the liver and the veins have no "back-flow" valve. Then imagine blood circulation through the liver is extremely slow or backed-up due to congestion. Guess what? The blood will back-flow to the rectal and anal area again. Spasms of the anal sphincter are said to be a frequent cause of external hemorrhoids because they may shut off the outflow of blood to the rectal veins.""
[YEA] 02/04/2008: Gabi from TORONTO, CANADA: "Use Castor Oil to cure hemorrhoid. Make small CASTOR OIL PACK. You can use even cotton ball saturated with Castor Oil. Lie down and apply it to the hemorrhoid. You can walk with it if you have to. It brings very fast relive and swollen hemorrhoid shrinks fast.
Did anybody tried Castor Oil to cure skin or toe nail fungus? If you have any positive experience please contact me at email@example.com It seems that Castor Oil really is one of nature wonders. I have one tip for persons using garlic: drink lemon juice or eat few slices of lemon. It kills garlic breath, cures stomach ulcers (for sure prevents them), keeps you safe from colds and flus!"
03/15/2010: Jen from R: "hello earthclinic,

[YEA] Donna from Aspen, CO: "Increase your white blood cell count: rub your whole stomach with castor oil every day. My sister has cancer, and her doctor cannot figure out why her white count is climbing while the other blood counts are falling. He won't believe the castor oil story....hahaha"Replies
06/13/2009: Trumpsahead from Slate Hill, NY replies: "To Donna,
In addition to the castor oil rubs, you can slow or starve cancer with hydrogen peroxide. It can be taken in water or as a mist/atomizer spray and inhaled, and bathed in with 1/2 tub of water. Investigate by computer search for hydrogen peroxide for cancer, or hydrogen peroxide cures, etc.
08/22/2011: Doddie from Lawrenceville, Georgia, Usa replies: "Pete m. How much 35% H202 should be used in the tub and what is the minimal to maximum amount of time should a person stay in the tub ? Would it be okay do this in fluoride and chlorinated water? I do not have a home filtering system."
[YEA] 12/22/2007: Jan from Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Queensland Australia: "I jammed my finger hard in a sliding glass door. I was in agony, until I poured enough Castor Oil in a cup in which to soak my finger. I kept it there for a good hour. The pain began to ease immediately and I never got a bruise and never lost my fingernail. The nail was slightly pink and I am sure it would have gone black had I not used the above remedy. I was amazed!"Replies
[YEA] 02/05/2009: Joshua from Windsor, WI replies: "i use castor for so many things, though i work in construction and one day bent my index finger back to quite a painful extent...instantly began to swell to the size of a big toe. i left work briefly and picked up ol'faithful...castor oil. i soaked and wrapped it thouroughly and finished the day of work. as well...i play drums and had three days worth of gigs lined up starting that night...i would simply keep it soaked and wrapped until i had to play and then rewrap when i was done. using this method led my finger to heal quickly, even with the extra abuse i had put it through. great for wrist problems as well."
[YEA] 03/09/2008: Brooke from Montgomery, TX: "I have always used Castor Oil Packs to strengthen my liver and kidneys. The liver can grow itself back if you take the time to do it.
You get cold pressed castor oil, wool flannel, a heating pad and a piece of plastic - I use a garbage bag. There are sites online that will explain it in details.
I put the castor oil into a sealed container with the wool flannel and shake it up. You want the castor oil to e dripping from it slowly. I then put the container into the microwave for about 15 or 20 seconds - just to get it heated up. I then put a couple of towels onto my bed or couch and lay down on them. Then I take the wool flannel and put it on my stomach. If you are trying to heal the liver, put it a little bit more over your liver, if you are trying to heal the kidneys, put it over that area. Then I put the garbage bag onto th flannel and then the heating pad - all the way on high (or as high as you can handle). Leave it on for at least one hour and meditate on what you are trying to achieve. After you are finished, wipe your self off with a mixture of Baking soda and water,to get your skin back to the proper ph.
Do this for 4-5 days on and then leave off for the remaining days.
There is a good book called Edgar Cayce and the Palma Christi. It tells of all the wonderful things that Castor Oil (the Palma Christi) does!"
02/12/2009: Darlene from Denver, Colorado replies: "Won't the heating pad melt the plastic ?"
EC: Doubtful but you can always use a hot water bottle instead of heating pad instead.
06/16/2009: Need Help from Shreveport, LA replies: "they say get pressed castor oil. what is pressed. Its not regal castor? Ive got just castor oil. i really need help with my liver and gall bladder. So please tell me what is pressed, think you help needed"
09/14/2009: Stacey from Berlin, Germany replies: "Cold-pressed oil is considered superior to other methods of oil extraction because heat and solvent based processing often destroys the active ingredients in beneficial oils. You can find cold-pressed oils at a healthfood store. They are often organic as well, so expect to pay more. The are better than regular oil, but regular castor oil is better than nothing."
[WARNING!] 06/15/2011: Miami from Satun, Thailand replies: "I am very surprised you are using a microwave to heat up the pack. Microwave.... Witch has very bad waves and energy for the God given Castor oil. Please use a hot water bottle on the plastic and leave it for an hour. Do this 6 days in a row then one day rest and start again till nessecary. But always have one day rest. Same like our Creator.
Wish you a speedy recovery, go healthy go green!"
06/24/2013: Rosalin from Bhubneswar, India: "I am from India... I need castor oil pack.. Plz tell me where would I get this... Plz help me in this manner."Replies
07/30/2014: Jl from Durham, Nc replies: "India is the biggest producer of castor oil. You should be able to get this in India. Ayurvedic doctors use this in various ways, including in enemas."
[YEA] 10/25/2008: l from Sandusky, Ohio : "My daughter was diagnosed with Lymphatic Malformation or Cystic Hygroma, (A large growth or swollen mass just under the skin in the neck/throat area), when she was born. It was alarming to say the least. It is a congenital birth defect, and it has to do with a defect in the venous system or Lymph system. The cyst are filled with Lymph fluid. It's also very unpredictable, and a cyst can swell up or go down at any time, and new cysts can appear at any time. The cysts can get very large, and cause deformities in the face and other parts of the body, and obstruct breathing. There is no known cure, except surgery and a drug that can be injected directly into the cyst called OK-432. Usually when the child gets sick or has an infection anywhere in the body, they swell up, or new ones appear. My daughter is two now. About 2 months ago, she developed a new cyst on the other side of her face/neck. I freaked out. I'm not to keen on doctors, because of what they put her through when she was born, and (No money, or a car), I'm always searching for an alternative cure.
I've had extremely good results with Castor Oil. I'm a big believer in this stuff. I buy big bottles of it at a time, it's great. I use it, whenever I have a problem. Edgar Cacey was a Christian, and always gave credit where credit was do, to God, and he felt motivated by him. There have been many, many documented reports over the decades of Castor oil really helping a lot of people for a wide spectrum of ailments. I put her on Castor oil packs about 4 times a week for two months, and the cyst went WAY down, and has stayed that way for a while now. Now, I'm not 100% sure that was what worked for her, but we seem to notice it beginning to shrink and a response from her as soon as we started her on the packs.
The packs are messy, and it's not easy to get a child to hold still for a pack on their abdominal area. So, I used an old throw away shirt, and safety pins. I safety pinned the saturated flannel section on the inside of the front of the shirt to cover her stomach, and generously massaged a large amount of the oil all over her cysts on her neck and throat. I did this regime at night, and in the morning gave her a bath or a shower. The heating pad is not really necessary, but helps, a lot. I did not do a heat source on her, because she is so young, she would never sit still for it. The first few nights, she was restless, and agitated, and was running a mild fever. Then in the morning, the fever would break. We noticed it getting smaller from than on. It really seemed to help her those packs. She seem to have a lot of energy and be in a good mood, the mornings after the packs. If and when this happens again, I'll try the packs again. Castor oil is great. Hope this helps her. Like Cacey said, Do the packs along with a prayer for healing."Replies
06/23/2009: London from Sandusky, Ohio replies: "For anyone with Lymphatic Malformation out there. Chocolate should be taken out of the diet, and Sugar, minimized.
My daughter has not had a flare up since I have completely omited chocolate and large amounts of Sugar from the diet. I even tested her out with the chocolate and she got a flare up the next day."
[YEA] 07/27/2014: Diamond from Mass., US: "Castor Oil is listed and used as a laxative, but it also has many other helpful additional properties listed in this web site. I have such bad inflammation it is flowing out of my ears like a sticky substance, doctors didn't know what it was from, then by luck I came across a web site stating inflammation also flows out of your ears and the very best treatment is Castor Oil. I tried it today and I feel great. Here is the web site, read on & enjoy.
Good Luck, I hope this works for every one, I have found it to help me a great deal as in the past year or two I was having severe headaches. There are many more web sites on this info."
[YEA] 08/21/2011: Elaine from Mena, Arkansas, Usa: "I was reared from childhood, being given a tablespoon Castor Oil montly for cleaning out the colon, and also removing or killing parasites. The Castor bean has drawing properties, and does work well for drawing purposes. It has been used for so many remedies for many years, and yes, can be used as a purgative. But it also draws out impurities from the cellular tissue. I have also used it to purge of gall stones from Gall bladder. I simply mixed it with grapfruit juice, in order to get it down."
[YEA] 08/25/2010: Karen from Sydney, Australia: "I've had very sore knees due to being overweight. For the last few days I could barely walk or put weight on my left knee... About a month ago, I bought some Castor Oil and and was using it for my face (wrinkles etc) and I must say, it's just fantastic... Last night I could barely sleep due to the knee pain so I tried the Castor Oil on my knee.. I massaged it in for around 5 minutes and went to bed... This morning, I woke up almost totally pain free.. Apart from a slight pulling sensation at the back of my knee, the severe pain I was suffering with for days, has gone... I'm not only gobsmacked but still gingerly walking around as if it's going to erupt at any minute.... I can't thank this site enough and the information it offers... It has been a God send.... I am going to use the oil on other parts of my body as well whenever I feel tension or pain... I'm still shocked as I write this.. Thank you to everyone who asks great questions and others who give such informative answers, especially Ted... God Bless you.. Karen"Replies
08/26/2010: Dianna from Austin, Tx, Usa replies: "Yes, castor oil is amazing. They don't call it the palm of christ (palma christi) for nothing!!! I have recommended it to several friends for shoulder problems and other joint problems and they were amazed too! Also I have an old pet rattie who is dying and rubbing it on her abdomen has given her comfort and allows her to sleep and relax better. I also use it on my face and body - it seems to actually make my skin firmer! And any time I feel under the weather I do a castor oil pack on my abdomen or neck or both and by morning I feel great!!!"
[YEA] 08/08/2010: London from Sandusky, Ohio: "I LOVE castor oil!!! Its a miracle oil!!! I use it for EVERYTHING. Does not work very well as a laxative tho, however, It does relax you, and I usually take a long nap after drinking it. Its wonderful for injuries, and painful muscles, strains, sprains, etc."Replies

[YEA] 07/23/2010: Dfc1 from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Usa: "I thought I would comment on my use of Castor Oil. I had a small cyst under my skin beside my left eye for about a year. A few weeks ago I started rubbing one drop of the oil on the cyst. Sometimes it would get in my eye, but it didn't hurt or anything. Within two weeks I noticed that the cyst was gone. I couldn't believe it. I had read on this site about Castor Oil being good for sleep, so every time I put it on my eyelids I sleep better that night. I have also read that Castor Oil is good for cataracts. My 12 year old peek-a-poo has cataracts so I'm going to try the oil in his eyes, if I can get him to hold still long enough. I love Castor Oil and I love this site."
[YEA] 05/17/2010: Cajun from Opelousas, La: "I began using Castor Oil Packs [COP] a few years ago and can swear by them...even my mother swears by it now after falling and damaging her knee...all was well overnight after applying the COP method. Another use has been for liver spots; religiously applying CO has lightened them and also improved my skin."Replies
05/18/2010: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Cajun, please tell me exactly how you used castor oil for your age spots? I applied it for maybe a week, covered with a plaster, day and night and it did absolutely nothing."
05/18/2010: Dianna from Austin, Tx replies: "it takes longer than a week... maybe a month or more. keep applying nightly and also use a method of exfoliation like baking soda or apple cider vinegar daily or at least weekly. also stay out of direct sunlight so you don't keep getting more spots. the spots will lighten with each layer of skin that comes off and if you don't create more spots by sun exposure - eventually the skin that replaces the spotted skin will be spot free."
11/03/2010: Noddy from Adelaide, Australia replies: "Just wondering how you were using the castor oil. Were you taking it internally?? I have a pterygium which I am desperate to get rid of. I have heard you can put castor oil drops in your eye to get rid of it??"
