Lymphatic congestion is a prominent cause of inflammation and ultimately disease.
Application of castor oil is done externally, and the absorption of the oil through the skin increases lymphocyte production. Lymphocytes are specific immune cells that recognize and ultimately lyse cancer cells, virus infected cells, pathogens, and neutralize debris. The lymphatic flow, which is a unique portion of the circulatory system, mainly deals with elimination of toxic substances. When it's obstructed or not working properly, waste and toxins build up in the interstitial fluid creating an acidic and inflammed environment.
Castor oil packs are very effective in decreasing pain, treating uterine fibroids, non-malignant ovarian cysts, intestinal disorders, improving digestion and liver conditions, clearing congestion, and softening scar tissue.
