A castor oil pack is an external application of castor oil. A piece of
wool flannel is saturated in castor oil and applied to the abdomen
with a heating pad. The Cayce readings recommend castor oil packs
to improve assimilations, eliminations and circulation (especially of the
lymphatic system).  Although this therapy may seem unusual, it is one
of the best documented of the Cayce therapies. Dr. William McGarey
has applied castor oil packs to treat manyconditions.

Hiatal Hernia
Steps for Manual Manipulation
This procedure can be performed on yourself after being shown the technique by your natural health practitioner.
Perform this procedure every morning for at least one month, two months for large or long-term hernias. Steps one and two are optional but should be done for tense individuals or stubborn hernias. This procedure can be performed anytime the stomach seems to be displaced but best results are achieved if this is done with an empty stomach.
  1. Five minutes before the procedure, take a dropperful (15-20 drops) each of Lobelia Essence (stock # 1765-8) and Stress-J Liquid (stock # 3163-3) in 2 ounces of warm water to relax the diaphragm and vagus nerve.
    Magnesium Complex (stock # 1859-8) can also be taken daily to promote muscle relaxation.
  2. Massage Tei Fu Oil (stock # 1618-7), Lavender Essential Oil or Chamomile Essential Oil into the stomach area before the procedure.
  3. Lie on your back on a hard flat surface or the floor. Take a deep breath and remember what it feels like. (You should be able to breathe deeper and easier when the procedure is over.)
  4. Place both hands just beneath the breastbone. Palms are against the body and fingers are touching so that the thumbs meet just below (1"-2") where the ribs come together.
  5. Take a deep breath and as you slowly and forcefully exhale, push thumbs inward and downward about two inches with a steady, heavy pressure. Do not lift your hands or release the pressure on your abdomen at the end of the breath.
  6. Maintaining constant pressure with the thumbs, take another breath and repeat the procedure until you reach the waistline. This will take a total of about 3-5 breaths.
  7. Hold your left thumb in place and move your right thumb over to shut the ileocecal valve. Using your right thumb this valve is found by locating the front, upper point of the right hip bone and moving the thumb toward the center of the body two inches and then down two inches. (This valve must be closed in order for the gastroesophageal valve to remain closed.)
  8. As your right thumb applies pressure to the ileocecal valve in an inward and upward direction (toward the stomach) move the left thumb over to assist with the pressure. Hold this pressure for 30 seconds. Release with a slight wiggling, massaging motion.
  9. Repeat the entire procedure (steps 4-8) three times.
  10. Take a deep breath and see how much better you feel.
  11. To Avoid pressure on the stomach, DO NOT rise as if you were doing a sit-up. Roll onto your side and push yourself to a sitting position using your arms rather than lifting yourself using your abdominal muscles.
This technique should be done on an empty stomach first thing in the morning is best, but  doing  this before each meal will bring quicker results.
Ideally, this massage should be done 3X/day before meals. At the least do it in bed before going to sleep and in the morning before you get out of bed. Some people experience gurgling, flatulence, burping - or other sounds during or after this massage and sometimes a bowel movement will follow. All of these are evidence that this valve needs help. You'll find that the tenderness will subside after about a week or two of diligent application of this technique and you'll feel much better and be healthier for it.
Coffee enema
History of Coffee Enemas
 (NaturalNews)  Remember the old joke about enemas? "It couldn`t hurt!" It`s OK, go ahead and laugh, both laughing and enemas are good for your health. Laughing has probably been around longer, but we know that Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine prescribed enemas some 2,600 years ago, as did Patanjali, the first written author on yoga around 200 B.C. Many cultures independently invented it and during the pre-plastic bucket days things such as hollowed out gourds or animal bladders were used. "In fact, there is hardly a region of the world where people did not discover or adapt the enema. It is more ubiquitous than the wheel. Enemas are found in world literature from Aristophanes to Shakespeare, Gulliver Travels to Peyton Place." (Ralph W. Moss, PhD)

There is speculation that the coffee enema, originated during World War I. Morphine supplies were limited and nurses discovered that coffee enemas could be used to dull pain experienced by wounded soldiers. Since that time we have learned that coffee enemas are not only helpful for pain management, but have the additional benefits of helping the liver remove and dump toxins. It is the circulating toxins that cause inflammation and pain by irritating the nervous system.

The liver combines toxins with bile and excretes the toxins with the bile flow. The caffeine, theobromine and theophylline, in coffee dilate the ducts to facilitate bile flow. The palmitates in coffee increase the action of glutathione-S-transferase by 600% to 700% in the liver and in the small intestine. It is this enzyme that is responsible for the detoxification of free radicals and it`s also this enzyme that inhibits the re-absorption of the toxic bile. The quart of fluid held in the colon encourages the bowels to quickly move the waste out of the body by increasing peristalsis. It is easier, and tastier to drink the coffee, but the effects are not the same. Only coffee administered through the colon has the effects of bile duct dilation and enzyme stimulation.
By Dr. Kirk Hamilton
When I first began my research efforts, I was very surprised to find that the coffee enemas, often portrayed as one of the most bizarre aspects of alternative medicine, came right out of the Merck Manual, a revered compendium of orthodox treatments. When I was completing my immunology fellowship, I had an interesting correspondence with the then editor of the Merck Manual, who confirmed that the coffee enemas had been advocated in the Merck Manual from about 1890 right up until 1977, when they were removed more for space considerations than anything else. Most nursing texts for the better part of the century recommend coffee enemas. Particularly during the 1920s and 1930s coffee enemas were used in the US and abroad to treat a variety of conditions, and I have put together a library of articles from that time discussing the wide ranging effects on patients. Coffee enemas were frequently recommended because patients, whatever their underlying problem, tended to feel better after a coffee enema. I have followed thousands of patients over the years who have done coffee enemas in some cases for decades: virtually all patients report an increase sense of well being. I have done them myself daily since first learning about them in 1981.
There is research going back to the earlier part of the century that indicated that coffee enemas stimulate more efficient liver function and gallbladder emptying, and we believe that is the primary therapeutic benefit. Particularly with cancer patients, who often have a very large tumor burden, as the body repairs and rebuilds and as tumors break down, enormous amounts of toxic debris can be produced, much of which must be processed in the liver. The coffee enemas seem to enhance this processing of toxic metabolic waste. Interestingly enough, in Hospital Practice (August 15, 1999 page 128), a very orthodox journal of internal medicine, I read a summary of an article showing coffee seems to enhance gallbladder and liver function.
