Castor oil is a powerful natural remedy that is very simple and inexpensive. One of the reasons why it's so great is because it has a multi-targeted effect on all our body systems.
Rebalancing your hormones means keeping your skin glowing, a sharp mind, vitality & energy.
This is what Castor Oil Packs can help you with:
Keep your bowels moving an thus eliminate toxins
Support your bodies’ cleansing mechanisms
Help with progesterone production
Detoxify & excrete metabolized estrogens
Keep inflammation low and promote alkalization
Keep your stress hormone cortisol balanced and promote feel-good hormones
Support your microbiome
Let me explain...
If you are constipated, you are recirculating the excess hormones that your body is trying to eliminate and your liver has to do double duty. Castor oil is known to be an effective laxative because it stimulates the PGE3 receptors of smooth muscles that contract the intestines to move the junk out.
Castor oil improves the levels of our ever important cleansing molecule glutathione.
By promoting healthy elimination, getting rid of excess estrogen and eliminating stress, you are supporting progesterone production!
Castor oils help to lower levels of beta-glucuronidase which is an enzyme that will promote estrogen domiance. Castor oil can even help with reducing cysts and fibroids, and significantly improving the pain associated with these.
Since you place the pack directly on your liver, you are exerting an anti-inflammatory effect on your liver that improves its action. It can even help reduce cholesterol and elevated liver enzymes. Lowering systemic inflammation is also a key strategy for reducing estrogen dominance, PCOS and adrenal issues.
When relaxed and using the pack, the smooth touch of the pack on your skin stimulates the bonding and love hormone, oxytocin. The area of the brain that lights up is the limbic system, otherwise known as the emotional area of the brain, leaving you feeling satisfied by the fulfilling neurotransmitter, dopamine.
Castor oil is stimulating the production of nitric oxide, a natural anti-aging and health promoting molecule that inhibits yeast overgrowth.
How to do a castor oil pack?
Watch this short video I did last week to see how to do a castor oil pack:
How to get the best results from your castor oil packs?
Wear daily for at least 1 hour or overnight for best effect. If you want transformation, long-term healing you need to do this every night.
Wear over the liver (under the right rib cage).
Pour 2 tablespoons of organic castor oil onto an old cloth (it's sticky and it stains and the stains don't come off after washing. DO NOT use castor oil stored in plastic bottles
Pour the oil in the center of your cloth and place on your liver. To avoid the cloth from moving if wearing overnight, you can use a bandage or something else you have to keep it in place.
It’s safest to wear and old t-shirt when wearing the pack.
Heat is optional but a great enhancer!
