Castor Oil Packs, My Little Secret
I am in need of fibroid relief! Fibroids are no joke. They are non-cancerous tumors that are in & or around the uterus. If symptomtocmatic some of the main symptoms are heavy bleeding, painful cramps, and anemia. Fibroids can be as small as a pea or as large as a grapefruit. After years of research, and getting to know my body, I finally nailed a holistic regimen that helps greatly to relieve my symptoms of fibroids.
A form Hydrotherapy for Uterine Fibroids is using castor oil which is applied at the lower abdomen can stimulate blood circulation, which delivers nutrients and other beneficial substances to the cells and cleans away waste products. These treatments can also provide pain relief and help dissolve congestion in the pelvic area. Castor oil is made from the leaves of the castor oil plant.
Dip a piece of cotton fabric in castor oil, just enough to soak up oil without dripping.
Place this poultice on your lower abdomen, and cover first with a plastic wrap, and then a towel.
Place a hot water bottle or mildly warm heating pad on the plastic and add another towel. The plastic prevents the oil from dripping out while the heat further drives the warmed oil into the body.
A Castor oil can be a helpful addition to your holistic fibroid regimen.
Avoid using the castor oil pack during your menstrual cycle, as heat promotes circulation and bleeding.
