i will be trying the castor oil externally for the first time tonight, by putting it on my belly with a heating pad for about 30 minutes. this should stimulate my liver and gall bladder, thus releasing toxins. a note about toxins. any time you are doing any sort of flush, be sure to drink a lot of fluid. as your body lets go of the toxins, you also loose a lot of fluid. i would say thats the dangerous part. dont dehydrate!!! you also loose pottasiam and sodium, so you may feel quite weak, and not well. if you dont feel well, try drinking chicken broth. also hot tea will help. the way i do everything is slowly. yes i want this junk out of my body too. but, i feel, for me anyway, i dont want to put to much pressure on my organs all at once. i feel, that could be harmful!!! but, thats just my opinion, a lot of this is common sence. my mother used to give me castor oil as a child when i had a tummy ache. very old remedy!!!!
