I have recently finished a book which touches on the work of Edgar Cayce. Pronounced Kay - cee. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Cayce He was a chap who during the 20th century was psychic and diagnosed people's dis-ease / s (his word) whilst in a trance. Most of his cures involved a hot pack of Castor oil. As we all know Castor oil is an eliminating oil. He said that most of the problems of the human body always led back to a blockage or an elimination problem. He used Castor oil packs for just about everything; ankle sprains, sore throats, chest infections.
I read in the book that the author Jess Stern, used Castor oil to remove age spots on his hands. Now my hands are usually smooth, because of my cross stitching, but since trying the Castor oil, and just using it like a hand cream I have noticed a definite improvement. And this in only 2 days!
Tim updates will occure when happening, as there will be a lull in activity there, for just a while. He will have to pick up some weight. Lucky lad!
