Why use a Castor Oil Pack?
Ricinoleic acid (the triglyceride the composes 95% of Castor Oil) targets your lymphatic system. Lymphocytes are the body’s natural disease fighters. They are white blood cells (B-cells and T-cells) each with their own functions, but together they help control immune responses.
When there’s an infection within your body, their production level increases to fight what ails you. These blood cells help to drain the body of toxins and proteins that build up overtime in your organs and blood.
By using a castor oil pack, you’re allowing oil to absorb through your skin, into your targeted organs and your bloodstream. With this, you’re enhancing the production of lymphocytes and encouraging detoxification and healing your body function.
Take your liver for example, this practice provides a powerful enhancement to the liver’s already effective detoxification system. Liver-targeted castor oil packing is an ancient practice to help support and optimize the organ’s function and your overall digestion.
Should you have an issue with another part of your digestive system, fertility organs, a desire to naturally detox or an acute problem related to another organ, ask your health practitioner if a castor oil pack would be beneficial.
