~ Stressed / Compromised Immune System

•   E.g. AIDS or other conditions that stress or compromise the immune system very often benefit from CO packs.   AIDS patients who have added CO packs (usually for 1 hour a day) to their treatment regimen have had very positive results. Within 2 weeks, it was not uncommon for them to see increases in their WBC, RBC, and platelet counts, and hematocrit readings.

* Female Problems

•  Excessive Bleeding.  In The Edgar Cayce "Handbook for Health through Drugless Therapy", the late Dr. Harold J. Reilly, who worked with the information provided in the Cayce readings for 45 years, recalls the case of a woman who had been suffering from excessive bleeding of the uterus for 13 years. By the time she came to see Dr. Reilly, her problem was threatening to disrupt her career as an opera singer, as well as her ability to function normally in her personal life as a wife and mother. She consulted four leading gynecologists, who had all recommended some kind of surgery, from a simple D&C to a total hysterectomy. Dr. Reilly put her on a regimen that began with colonic irrigations and castor oil packs four nights on, three nights off. The woman later reported that "after the first two nights of the castor oil packs ... the spotting stopped, and this was remarkable, because it was just after my menstrual period, and usually that went on and on. By the end of the week, I sang in a concert and felt fine."

•  Varicose vein.   In her popular book “Take Charge of Your Body”, Canadian physician Dr. Carolyn DeMarco recommends the application of castor oil packs at night for the relief of pain and swelling associated with varicose veins.

•  Fibrocystic breasts.   In a 1994 article in Health Naturally magazine, Dr. DeMarco writes about the recommendation of American gynecologist Dr. Christine Northrup to apply castor oil packs to the lumpy, painful breasts of women who suffer from fibrocystic breasts.

•  Labor Initiation and Progression Susun Weed, author of the book "Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year", says that in traditional midwifery, castor oil is used internally and externally to stimulate the uterus, soften the cervix, and help initiate labor. She also suggests rubbing castor oil on the belly and covering with a warm towel if the cervix is ripe and labor seems near. Some midwives rub castor oil on the feet to help labor along.

#Osteoporosis Testimony

“One time when my mother had fractured her back due to severe osteoporosis, she was prescribed very strong painkillers, during her ten day stay in the hospital. I remembered the information I had read in Edgar Cayce and the Palma Christi by William A. McGarey. So on her return home; I proceeded, with her permission, to very gently apply castor oil packs to her back.

After the very first application she no longer required the painkillers and after using the packs for three consecutive days per week for several weeks, we then changed to a maintenance program of once a week. This kept her spine more flexible and supple. In fact she actually looked forward to her castor oil day and found it extremely relaxing.
