Foods That Fight Pain

Category: Food & Your Health

Some foods contribute or even cause inflammation inside the body. For some people this causes pain and reduced mobility.

I bring to your attention an excellent new book out by Dr. Neal Barnard called Foods That Fight Pain.

Diabetic Foot & Castor Oil

Category: Therapeutic Solutions
Posted: 2008-11-20 12:24

Not having any diabetes in my family, I just discovered this last week:

Of the sixteen million Americans with diabetes, 25% will develop foot problems related to the disease. Diabetic foot conditions develop from a combination of causes including poor circulation and neuropathy. Diabetic Neuropathy can cause insensitivity or a loss of ability to feel pain, heat, and cold.

Diabetics suffering from neuropathy can develop minor cuts, scrapes, blisters, or pressure sores that they may not be aware of due to the insensitivity. If these minor injuries are left untreated, complications may result and lead to ulceration and possibly even amputation.

The ideal treatment is direct massage with pure Palma Christi castor oil. The anti-bacterial, natural vitamin E, and anti-inflammatory properties will speed healing and regenerate the skin. Castor oil soothes pain and increases the micro-circulation of the skin - both benefiting this condition. Pure castor oil can be safely applied to open wounds.

For larger lesions:
Apply a liberal amount of castor oil and cover with a piece of white flannel (dampened with castor oil) - to cover the lesion(s)/injury. Wrap with gauze. Cover foot with white cotton sock. Best results can be achieved when done before bedtime and left overnight.

I hope this information brings relief and wellness to many!
