There are basic laws of health that if incorporated into everyday lifestyle choices will support your body's immune system response to support your body to stay healthy even during times when there are so many threats of illness going around.
But even the most health-conscious individuals aren't totally immune to seasonal threats when they get a little lazy in their daily routine of eating right, exercising, resting & managing stress and reducing toxic load. This was the reminder that came to David recently in the form of the "seasonal crud". You know.... that tickle in your throat... the desire to just lay in bed.... and the cough that disrupts the tranquility of the night and soon takes over almost every waking moment, too! The statement when he said, "I'm not really feeling that great" took us both by surprise, because it was something he hadn't said in about 5 years!
Caster oil packs have been used for many centuries originating in India. Castor oil is derived from the seeds of the Ricinus communis plants that grow wild in wastelands across tropical regions. Many of castor oil’s benefits come down to its chemical composition. It’s classified as a type of triglyceride fatty acid, and almost 90 percent of its fatty acid content is a specific and rare compound called ricinoleic acid.
Castor Oil Packs are most notably used as a gentle way to detox the body by placing a castor oil saturated piece of flannel placed over the abdomen with heat for about an hour.
