Castor Oil Flush
For adults: Pour 50 ml to 75 ml ( 1.5 to 2 ounces) of castor oil in a cup and add equal amount of freshly squeezed orange juice to it and mix well. Drink on an empty stomach at around 6-7a.m.
After 15 - 30 minutes, start drinking hot water (like you would sip tea).
Drink approximately 3-4 cups at intervals of 10 - 15 minutes. You will have flush bowel movements.
When you have had 2-3 flushes, stop drinking warm water. The bowel movements can be stopped by drinking a glass of buttermilk or low fat yogurt. For the rest of the day try to eat very light food and avoid fatty , fried and spicy foods.
How often to do?
Do this once a month or once in two months. This can be easily done on the weekend.
After the Cleanse
Eat very light food; not fatty, fried items. Fruit juices are fine or steamed vegetables are good. If you feel too hungry, just plain rice with some beans without any fat is good.
Who is this cleanse for?
For children above the age of four it is safe but use less amount of castor oil (one teaspoonful to one tablespoonful depending on age).
Care should be taken not to dehydrate them. So stop after they have had one or two bowel flushing.
Children below the age of four and pregnant women. However, before planning for pregnancy doing this is excellent. This keeps the body healthy for the baby. Very ill people should not do this cleanse. If you are suffering from fever or have diarrhea or dysentery.
Please note: people with liver problems or poor liver functions should not do this cleanse.
