(NaturalNews) "No drug exists that has the ability to improve lymphatic flow; however, the job can easily be handled through the topical application of Castor oil," said Dr David G. Williams. In addition to increasing the flow of lymph, Castor oil can increase lymphocyte production and activity. Topical application of Castor oil through massage or packs has been shown to be an effective remedy for: skin keratosis, ringworm, fungal and bacterial infections, sebaceous cysts, warts, muscle strains and spasms, itching, reducing inflammation, and relief of pain. It can relieve chronic fluid retention, arthritis, gallbladder and liver congestion and can remove mucus in the lungs and bowels. It makes an effective deodorant and can be used around the home for tasks such as lubricating a squeaky juicer. Castor oil should not be used during pregnancy because of the risk of miscarriage.

Castor oil's American revival began with "The Sleeping Prophet," Edgar Cayce. Cayce recommended both oral and topical use in his telepathic health readings. He said that Castor Oil caused a reflux reaction in the ascending colon and that this internal scrubbing moved stagnation along which otherwise could lead to disease conditions. The ascending colon is a common spot for gut trouble possibly because peristalsis needs to push against gravity in this zone.

Castor oil is extracted from the seeds of Ricinus communis, a plant native to India but now known worldwide. The plant is commonly called Palma Christi because of its large "hand shaped" leaves. It`s ironic that a plant known for its many health benefits is also the source of one of the deadliest toxins on earth. The oil is not toxic; all of the deadly portion is left behind in the pulp of the seeds. Castor oil is a triglyceride of fatty acids. Approximately 90% of its fatty acid content is made up of ricinoleic acid, and it is this aspect that is thought to give the oil its remarkable healing abilities. Ricinoleic acid can be effective in preventing the growth of viruses, bacteria, yeasts and molds.

Max Gerson, as part of his famous natural cure for cancer, prescribed Castor oil by mouth followed by a Castor oil enema (this is contraindicated in a patient, who has undergone chemotherapy, because it releases too much toxicity at one time). The usual oral dose is one tablespoon for adults. It`s excellent for massage or when simply rubbed onto the skin.

For a Castor oil pack you will need a cotton or wool flannel cloth folded in several layers to hold the oil. It`s important to get a good quality, cold-pressed oil. Saturate the cloth in oil and apply it to the skin. Packs are frequently applied to the liver and intestinal areas, or joints and muscles. Plastic should be placed over the pack to keep the oil from dripping. Plastic wrap or a plastic sheet can be used, then wrap an old towel around the pack for more protection. Castor oil will not wash out, so protect the sheets or couch fabric well. A hot water bottle placed over the pack will increase the effectiveness of the treatment. An hour is the usual length of time to leave a pack on, but it can be left in place all night. They can be used every day for weeks at a time, or a less intensive schedule would be three times a week over two weeks. Because of the antimicrobial properties of the oil, the same pack can be used over again many times before discarding. Don`t try to wash the cloth just start over with a fresh piece of fabric.
