Health practitioners and wellness gurus from Egypt and throughout the Middle East have been using Castor Oil for centuries. It may be new on your radar, but it’s certainly not a new treatment. Whether you’re facing digestive problems, arthritis or it’s something your medical advisor has suggested, Castor Oil Packing isn’t just for the alternative or green-health folks…
Ricinoleic acid (the triglyceride the composes 90% 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 encouraging 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-targetted castor oil packing is an ancient practice to help support and optimize the organ’s function and your overall digestion.
