PACKS
By Terry Robbins
INTRODUCTION
   Growing on the uterine walls or out from the
    uterus, uterine fibroids are usually non cancerous
    growths that comprise of smooth muscle fibers
    and connective tissues. While there are many
    treatment options for these growths, natural
    treatment of fibroids has been found to be
    effective and one of the ways to get rid of fibroids
    naturally is through the use of castor oil packs.
UTERINE FIBROIDS SYMPTOMS
 These benign growths on the uterus can produce
 symptoms and there are also circumstances when
 symptoms are not evident and they are usually
 discovered during routine cervical exams.
 When symptoms are produced, they usually include
 lower abdominal pain, pain during the monthly
 menstrual cycle and heavy menstrual cycles that last
 longer than the usual. Fibroid tumors grow very
 slowly and can vary in size and shape. When they
 become quite large, they can press upon the intestines
 as well as the bladder leading to constipation or the
 need to urinate frequently. For very advanced tumors
 another of the symptoms of uterine fibroids is that the
 stomach will appear larger.
TREATMENT
 For less severe fibroids, doctors simply monitor
 whether there is a change in size or properties of
 the tumors. If the fibroids remain unchanged,
 remain small and if they produce no symptoms,
 then nothing is usually done besides regular
 monitoring.
 If however, the fibroids continue to increase in
 size and cause symptoms, medical intervention
 may be necessary. The two most commonly
 recommended surgeries are the myomectomy
 when only the tumor(s) is(are) removed or a
 hysterectomy in which case the entire uterus is
 removed making it impossible for any fibroids to
 ever grow again. No uterus means no fibroids.
TREATMENT CONT
 With a myomectomy, there is always a chance of
 fibroids growing again although the woman will
 still remain reproductive. With a hysterectomy,
 pregnancy is no longer possible as no uterus will
 exist in the body after surgery.
NATURAL TREATMENT OF FIBROIDS
 Leaving fibroids alone may work for some women
 especially without the presence of any symptoms
 but even this position will lead to problems later
 especially if you wish to become pregnant. While
 the causes of fibroid tumors remain unknown, it
 is thought that the presence of the female
 hormone estrogen is to blame which is why
 fibroids usually recede when menopause rolls
 around when estrogen production decreases.
NATURAL TREATMENT OF FIBROIDS CONT.
 The female reproductive years means the
 estrogen production is at its height and when you
 get pregnant and as the baby grows, you will find
 that even dormant fibroids will begin to increase
 in size which can cause complications and even
 require surgery which is why it is important to
 seek treatment for all fibroids and natural
 remedies for fibroids may help.
 Treating fibroids naturally is also a great
 alternative to surgery due to surgery being
 expensive and also having various unpleasant
 side effects.
 One of the most common natural treatments of
 fibroids is through the use of castor oil packs.
CASTOR OIL
 The use of this oil to treat various ailments besides
 constipation or to induce labor that most people know
 about goes back many centuries. The science behind
 the health benefits of castor oil is very little requiring
 caution to be used if you do decide to use castor oil to
 treat fibroids or other ailments.
 The use of castor oil as a natural remedy dates back
 centuries and there are many glowing reports from
 the use of this oil to treat various conditions. Castor
 has various anti-viral, anti-bacterial as well as anti-
 fungal properties that help with the treatment of
 various conditions, in order to reduce pain as well as
 to stimulate the immune system.
CASTOR OIL CONT.
 Stimulating the immune system is the part that is
 important for fibroid tumor treatment through the
 characteristic of pure castor oil. 90% of the fatty acids
 found in castor oil are made up of ricinoleic acid
 which is thought to be the reason behind castor oil's
 healing properties.
 Castor oil supports the immune system when it is
 applied topically and not ingested as you would do
 with constipation or to induce labor.
 The external application of this oil allowing it to be
 absorbed through the skin gave rise to castor oil
 packs that were popularized by the natural healing
 guru Edgar Cayce who died in the 1940s. Castor oil
 packs are thought to improve the thymus gland in
 addition to other areas of the immune system.
CASTOR OIL CONT.
 A few studies using castor oil packs have shown that
 castor oil packs applied to the abdomen cause
 significant increase in lymphocyte production.
 Lymphocytes found in the lymphatic tissue are
 disease fighting cells and when these cells are
 increased, they drive out more of the toxins that lead
 to sickness and disease in the body such as fibroid
 tumors.
 This oil as a natural remedy can be applied topically
 any number of ways such as simply rubbing the oil on
 the affected area. However, castor oil packs are the
 ones for which most people looking for natural
 remedies give the most positive feedback for.
 A castor oil pack features a flannel cloth soaked in
 pure castor oil and applied to the stomach area for a
 period of time with a heating pad allowing the healing
 properties of the oil to be absorbed through the skin.
CONCLUSION
Natural treatment of fibroids almost always leads
 to the use of castor oil packs. For step by step
