Castor Oil Therapy For Infertility

Castor oil therapy consists of using a warm castor oil wrap over the abdomen in order to stimulate blood flow to this uterus and ovaries.

How Using Castor Oil Packs Can Help You Conceive

This natural method is used to treat gynaecological disorders related to infertility, like endometriosis, fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome, etc.

Castor oil is absorbed easily into the body through the skin and its healing components are delivered directly into the body tissues.

Properties Of Castor Oil Therapy

Castor oil assists the body in the removal of inflammatory components like prostaglandins. This decreases pain during menses and pain associated with endometriosis, inflammation, and adhesions.

"Scientific studies have shown that Castor oil treatments can boost the immune system by increasing the number of total lymphocyte count."

Castor Oil Packs Break Up Scar Tissue

Castor oil therapy can be effective in breaking up scar tissue and adhesions. Castor oil pack also loosens up masses or cysts and can remove toxins from as deep as 8 cm.

Castor Oil Packs Aid Tissue Detox

Castor oil stimulates lymphatic drainage and removes waste products from the tissues and cells.

Environmental chemicals may be the main cause of infertility causing conditions like uterine fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, metabolic imbalance, etc.

When dangerous toxins enter in your body through polluted foods, the air your breathe or the water your drink, they can cause damage to the DNA of your cells or stimulate your immune system to fight against them causing immunological weakness.

The result of all this is inflammation to the tissues and potential damage to their function and structure. In the reproductive organs inflammation causes scar tissue, often seen in conditions like PCOS, fibroids and endometriosis.

The following conditions respond to the application of Castor oil packs:

1. Menstrual dysfunction and painful periods.

2. Liver, pancreas and gallbladder disorders.

3. Digestive and stomach problems.

If you have endometriosis, PCOS, or ovarian cysts you should notice improvement during the first two menstrual cycles. During this time the ovarian pain and the menstrual discomfort should decrease considerably. As you notice improvement, taper off slowly by decreasing the number of session per week.

My Positive Experience Using Castor Oil Therapy

After suffering from an ectopic pregnancy I begin experiencing tremendous ovulation pain on the right side. In fact the ectopic pregnancy was a very rare case of ovarian pregnancy, where the embryo stayed attached to the right ovary instead of descending into the uterus.

This occurrence had most likely scarred my ovary and caused pain during ovulation when every month a new egg was going to be released during ovulation. I decided to use Castor oil packs to ease the ovulation pain and help my liver regulate the production of hormones.

"I used the packs as I outlined above for about two months and not only my ovarian pain went away but after about a couple of months I got pregnant after years of infertility."

Even if castor oil therapy was not the only natural treatment I was doing, I strongly believe that Castor oil therapy helped me conceive naturally." After witnessing this amazing result, I now recommend Castor oil therapy to everyone who has any kind of ovarian or uterine pain. Each time this simply healing technique produces benefits.

If you suffer from PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, blocked fallopian tubes and want to take charge of your own health, try using this Castor oil therapy kit in conjunction with Self-Fertility Massage DVD, developed by Hethir Rodriguez, certified registered massage therapist.
