It works, used castor oil heating pack for cyst and it flattened after about 5 treatments. Also helped soften scar tissue from c-section scar. (Years later)
I had ongoing pain in my right knee. It was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon as pigmented villonodular synovitis (a non malignant tumor). I was told there was no real cure. He could do surgery, but it may or may not take away the pain, and if it did, it probably wouldn't help for long as there was a good chance the tumor would come back within a short period of time.
I was then sent to a second orthopedic surgeon, one who specializes in tumors. He confirmed the diagnosis, and I was told essentially the same thing. He said he could do the surgery but it would be messy, a lot of blood, I would come home with drains in my leg, and again, no guarantee of any success. We mutually decided against surgery. He gave me some pain pills and sent me on my way.
I started doing some research online. Somewhere I read about someone who had used castor oil effectively for a tumor. I decided to give it a try.
I began wrapping my knee in castor oil packs at night when I went to bed. After a few days that seemed too messy, so I transitioned into massaging it into my knee for 15 or 20 minutes each night before I went to bed.
Within a day or two, the pain began to diminish. Within two weeks it was significantly better. I use kinesiology muscle testing on myself, and after one month of daily use, my testing indicated I was done with the castor oil. My knee felt so much better.
A week later at a follow-up appointment with the tumor specialist, he confirmed that to his examination, the tumor had shrunk significantly. He said, “Whatever you're doing, keep it up." He had me come back in another four weeks for a further check up. At that time he said he could detect no signs of the tumor anymore, and he discharged me from his care.
I am sold on castor oil. For the cost of 1/2 bottle of organic, cold-pressed castor oil and some effort on my part, I've got my knee back.
Now I am trying it on some internal scar tissue. I've been using it every night for about six weeks, and I do think I notice a decrease in the scar tissue. This seems to be healing slower than the tumor in my knee did. But I will keep at it and be persistent because now I know how powerful this oil is—at least for me.
