Castor Oil Packs

This is my go-to practice for home care! I love it because there are cheap Do It Yourself methods, and there are a bit more expensive no-mess options too. I have done these fore years and as a mother, the mess-free option is my favorite now.

Think about how beneficial blood flow is to your pelvis, liver, and organs? Our livers process toxins and hormones while your intestines are key for proper bowel movements. Many people struggle with constipation and do not even realize it. If you are pooping less than daily, if it is a struggle, uncomfortable or has blood or mucus, its time to get some help from a naturopathic doctor like myself. A daily practice of a simple castor oil pack at night is incredibly calming and restorative. I feel freer after using them nightly for a week.

My experience has been that menstrual cycles are less painful, pregnancy preparation is easier, and healing after pregnancy has benefited from castor oil

packs. The increase in function of the organs in your abdomen increases the ability of your body to heal quickly, digest your food easily, and makes you feel so much better overall.
