castor oil cleanse



  • dawnravendawnraven Raw Newbie

    Hi there, the castor oil cleanse is fine if you're not pregnant, or do not have liver problems. I have read that its safe to do once every one or 2 months. I drank 2 tablespoons with orange juice on an empty stomach. I drank more orange juice afterwards (freshly squeezed). I felt a bit rough for a while and a bit nauseous but could still get on with stuff. It took a few hours to kick in but then I went to the toilet about 7 times! I actually felt really good after it. I had a really good sleep and woke up refreshed in the morning

    I also didn't find the taste bad I just kept mixing it in the orange juice after each mouthful.

    I always thought that castor oil was fish-based, probably due to tasting it as a kid. Are there alternatives? Does epsom salt really have the same result?

     Hi I followed the instructions of this cleanse http://www.curezone.org/cleanse/liver/castor_oil_liver_flush.asp and there is no mention of adding bi-carb soda, I followed it to the letter, and I had one bowel movement within 30 mins, but to me it felt like my usual daily bowel movement. I have been sipping the hot water, and have gone through 4 cups now.. I haven't had another bowel movement, so I actually just had about 20ml more of castor oil and orange juice.  

    I need some guidance here.. I am extremely hungry and because instructions don't mention if I can eat or not I am not sure what to do.

    I think it should be safe to eat light meals after a castor oil cleanse, Miss May. Just nothing too big or heavy.

    The most common oils used are Castor Oil, though any natural oil can be used. Castor Oil is naturally astringent, so it helps pull impurities from the skin, making it ideal for oily or combination skin.
