CASTOR OIL PACKS- for external usage only

 In the ancient times castor oil was known as the “palma Christi” or the healing palm of Christ.  The oil of the castor bean, used “externally” has the amazing ability to permeate the cell wall, and allow the cell to regenerate, move stagnant “chi”, inflammation, and promote, healing  to the area.

For times of tumors, inflammations, bowel congestion, internal organ stagnations, swellings, odd reactions, or sprains, do the following:

-          rub liberally in clockwise motion, the castor oil on affected area.

-          - cover with 100% pure  wool or 100% cotton flannel,

-          When possible, after wrapping with the flannel or wool, wrap with seran wrap, to sweat the castor oil into the skin

-          Do this nitely5 nites per week, every week, for 10 weeks in severe cases, or for two to three weeks, for minor concerns

-          While doing the oil packs, make sure you bathe in Epsom salts, 1/3 c per hot bath, finish with cold rinse, skin brush with natural bristle, and vigourously towel dry .

-          Do these baths, 5 nites per week, for as long as necessary,

-          Also do saunas and massage therapy, at least once or twice per week, while healing and cleansing the body, to drain lymph, and remove toxin

Gall Bladder Flush #1

Items Needed:

  1. Olive oil, 20 ounces

  2. Prune or grape juice (If you absolutely abhor either of these, then use unfiltered apple juice.  Even pineapple juice is fine.)

  3. Several fresh lemons, about 10 depending on their size.  You will want to have enough lemon juice on hand as it helps you to manage the oil.

  4. Herbal tea (Life Force Invigorating teas are best suited for this.)

  5. A good herbal laxative or an enema bag.

The very best way to flush the gallbladder is to do a proper 7 day fruit fast first and then proceed with two days of a juice fast during which you take the oil.  Therefore you would proceed as follows: 

Days 1 to 7:
Fruit of any kind, mainly raw but some cooked should be fine such as apple sauce, as much you want to eat.  Keep to one kind of fruit each day.  Some fruit juice and herbal teas.  Also eat nuts, preferably soaked overnight.  They are easier to digest in a semi-sprouted state.  Continue to take the Life Force Fiber Food as recommended.  It will both cleanse your body and allay your hunger pangs.  If you find you simply can not stand the hunger, a little yoghurt is fine once in a while.  However the Fiber Food should be adequate.

Days 8 and 9:  Suggested time schedule
Beginning at 9:00 AM 

Ž    Take 1 ounce of olive oil mixed with prune, grape or other juice and some lemon juice.  Try using the blender.

Ž    Repeat the procedure every hour until you have, over the day, consumed 8 to 10 ounces of olive oil.  Go to bed fairly early.

Ž    Repeat the regime the second day only finishing with a laxative before bed if necessary

 Days 10 to 14:Ž    Go back to your fruit fast, continuing with Fiber Food.

Days 15 to 20:Ž    Ease back into regular foods with lots of salads and vegetables.

Note:  People that cannot tolerate olive oil can use Safflower oil but it doesn’t cleanse as well as olive oil.

SUGGESTED CHANGE OF DIET FOR DOGS AND CATS

We suggest you get the name of a good dry dog or cat food, for convenience sake. This is so that you can use it when you are too busy to feed a raw diet or are traveling.

As you can, add more organic raw meats to your pet’s diet, and/or fresh road kill/fresh wild meat. If you know any hunters get the organ meats, bones, raw meat, etc. Separate them into small pieces and freeze them in zip lock bags. You can pull these out when needed and give them to your pet. Act like your pet is an extremely valuable part of the wildlife exhibit at a local zoo, and needs its natural diet and habitat to keep healthy.

For instance, animals in the wild first eat the half digested contents of the intestines. Since most of their prey are herbivores (mice, deer, rats, etc) they eat the partially digested grasses, herbs, seeds, grains, and other organs near the intestines. They usually come back later for the rest, unless of course another animal has gotten to it already.

So for you to replace this natural feeding pattern, use brown rice cooked, add raw parsley, cilantro, shaved carrot, raw meats or lightly steamed meats and veggies, (until used to the raw meats), use flax oil (1 tspn daily, small animal, 1 tblspn large), broccoli, cauliflower etc, NO potatoes or tomatoes.

I suggest you add Prime Pet Bone and Joint for the animals with arthritic problems, Essence of Peace as needed into a herbal ball treat (see Recipe below) for nervous, abused, hyper, afraid, behavioral issues, etc, Soothe, for support of digestive or respiratory upsets, Giver To My Liver for gentle detox and cleansing, A Moon System for the support of the immune system, Tumor Time as needed, Prime Pet regular, as a daily, healthful maintenance supplement. We
suggest using Hear Ye Ear Oil for ears, Comfrey Soothing Salve for hot spots, rashes or cuts as needed. Calm the Chaos Emergency Drops soothing essence.

All of the dried/fresh herbs and Herbs of the World Inc. products mentioned above can be added to your pets daily diet by adding them to the herbal ball treats and/or their food (after it is cooked or raw) mixed with flax oil.

Herb Balls

- 1 lb or more of organic ground turkey, chicken, beef, or wild meat.
- Prime Pet or any other Herbs of the World Inc. products, herbal supplements, and flax oil.
- Figure out how many balls you want and according to what size animal, then mix in appropriate amounts of herbs, one dose per ball.
- Add finely chopped cilantro, parsley and any other raw herbs that may be appropriate.
We freeze the balls in trays in the freezer, and take out as needed. This is very convenient and is an excellent way to get the herbs to the animals, plus they LOVE it!!!
Use Flower Essences, in the water they drink, (make sure it is good quality water, not full of chlorine and chemicals) as needed for emotional and healing issues.
