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.
Headaches are annoying I know. How can you possibly function when your head feels like it’s being squeezed in a vice grip? And, you certainly can’t concentrate if it feels like someone is hitting you on top of the head with a rubber hammer, over and over again.
Taking one or two Panadol (paracetamol) or Nurofen (ibuprofen) occasionally for pain is not the problem. Taking it on a regular basis (and in excess) is where the danger lies. This is where most folks get into BIG trouble. They fall into the habit of reaching for a drug to mask a headache without getting to the root cause of the pain.
Unfortunately, no matter how many pills you take, those headaches will keep returning day after day, week after week, and month after month, because the root cause of the pain has never been assessed and addressed.
