#3. Castor Oil Packs For Pelvic Pain


Please note….

Medical research does show that castor oil packs provide some benefits including having anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal qualities but more research is needed on how helpful castor oil packs are for various ailments.

While you might try castor oil packs for mild symptoms or along with other medical treatment as prescribed by your doctor, please see your doctor for treatment if you have an infection or a chronic medical condition like arthritis, asthma, or constipation. These conditions need professional care and castor oil packs aren’t intended to treat or cure these medical conditions.
