Please be careful when you're looking for herbs, protocols, procedures. There are a lot of newbs here, and it always amazes me how people gravitate to taking advice from the most vocal newbs.
This recent castor oil thing is a great example where *someone*, we all know who, started misrepresenting castor oil as something you can do very often, and this is not case as I tried to point out.
Castor oil purge is from ayurvedic medicine. It was never intended to be a regular laxative, or even a Colon Cleanse
for that matter. One of the traditional safe Colon Cleanses
in ayurveda is triphala. You can take it long term and it was formulated exactly for gentle sustained cleansing.
Castor oil has some anthelmintic properties and it is a very very strong purgative, precisely because of the ricin oil content. As it was incorrectly advertised by the same person that does not contain ricin, in fact it does, but in small quantities that are safe for occasional use. Castor oil is a purgative, not a cleanser per se. Purgatives are to be used in emergency or non-frequenct situations. You do not want to rely on something like this for regular bowel movements.
If you have a case of parasite
caused extreme constipation, not a blockage, then what you need to do is double, triple, quadruple down on the strongest anthelmint that you are reasonably sure your body can tolerate, MEDS or otherwise, contrary to what this person has said. I don't blame her, but I'm sort of amazed at how who people choose as their sources of trusted information.
Plenty of people have shown that meds work when used correctly. If you start taking bottles of albendazole, without proper dosing then don't complain if something bad happens. Do your homework with the med dosing.
Don't get hung up on dogma, pharma conspiracy, or nature fantasies, even if they are true - just get the job done. When you are well then you can devote your life to philosophy.
For trusted information read Arnold Ehret's books, there is a guy on the net who has taken up the cause for current information, Bernard Jensen
'Tissue cleansing through bowel management', Hulda Clark
(is she trusted??? not sure but at least she was a clinician), the original vedic texts as pertaining to cleanses/diet, oxypower is safe, or the meds protocols here.
Sharkman seems like he can be trusted if you want to go down the meds road.
Slow and steady wins the race.
