Castor oil is derived from the seeds of the Castor plant (Ricinus communis), also known as Palma Christi. Castor oil has been used for thousands of years, dating back as far as 4,000 years.
Although castor oil therapy has been used for centuries to promote healing in the body, it was Edgar Cayce who became famous for castor oil packs. He was known as the ‘Sleeping Prophet’, as he would go into a trance state and give health readings to over fourteen thousand people during the course of his life.
He used castor oil packs topically to treat many ailments that resist traditional therapies. Known to conventional medicine only as a strong laxative if taken internally, this extract of the castor bean is a safe, gentle, easy-to-use remedy for virtually any illness – provided it is used externally.

Histamine reactions are so common in our society. In fact, allergies are something we have come to accept as a ‘normal’ part of living and simply a ‘nuisance’.
However, what you may not realize is just how many other problems histamine can cause in the body of susceptible individuals. Many of my clients have complex and unusual symptoms which can be linked to an array of conditions, but which I find are in fact connected to histamine.
