PCOS Articles - Castor Oil Packs for Ovarian Difficulties

Castor bean oil has been used externally for centuries as a natural therapy. The Edgar Cayce Readings inform us that castor oil packs are to be used to improve assimilation, elimination and circulation, especially of the lymphatic system.

Castor oil appears to have a unique ability to sink transdermally (through the skin) to relax smooth muscle. This simple mechanical action has a beneficial influence on all hollow organs, specifically the blood and lymph vessels, the uterus, fallopian tubes, bowels, gall bladder, and even the liver (which is not hollow but is filled with venous lakes).

Castor oil packs have many applications, and are specific for cases of uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts that are not cancerous. Packs may also relieve ovarian pain or help with healing after a ruptured ovarian cyst.
