Castor Oil Pain Relief
Castor Oil Pain Relief Therapy
Pain relief may not always need to come from medication or meditation - you may find that it may be also possible with natural castor oil, extracted from the seeds of a Ricinus Communis, a tropical bean plant.
Castor oil helps to provide a soothing, anti-inflammatory effect, which proves particularly useful for inflammatory conditions.
Traditionally, castor oil as therapy for pain relief has been traced to ancient Egypt as a natural remedy for eye irritations. In India, it's a commonly used therapy in ayurveda to treat several conditions.
In modern times, castor oil is still used therapeutically - alternative health practitioners believe that topical (external) use and application of castor oil to an injured body part or pained part will provide pain relief from its anti-inflammatory effects.
The healing abilities of natural castor oil is attributed to it being about ninety percent (90%) ricinoleic acid, the primary compnent that is anti-inflammatory that decreases the inflammatory response (an inflammation response usually follows trauma, be it physical or disease, and cause swelling, pain, discomfort).
Studies demonstrate that castor oil helps accelerates the production of lymphocytes that helps our body fight and defend itself against trauma and disease. Castor oil is also used to improve overall organ function and wellbeing.
Castor oil also helps to soothe your body of lymph and lymphatic drainage problems, eases pains from sciatic nerve as well as tumors, provides relief to aching muscles and joints.
To be frank, the effect on lymph treatment is likely one of the most important notable use of castor oil - it helps the body remove congestions in lymph glands and nodes, helping to promote lymphatic circulation that is vital for metabolism.
Another common use of castor oil is to provide pain relief for sciatic nerve pain, which can be very intense. As it helps to decrease inflammation around and of the sciatic nerve, it makes it easier for you to move, to sit or stand, or even sleep.
Castor oil therapy for pain relief is done in our clinic as well, by our registed Chinese Physician. It is done by placing a castor oil pack, which is a piece of flannel soaked in natural castor oil, over your painful body part for a period of time, for the anti-inflammatory effects to enter your body through the skin. We also place an electrical hotpack over the flanel too, to accelerate rapid absorption.
