Castor Oil Pack to Treat Ovarian Cancer?

A. Castor oil packs should never be used to treat any cancer. Heating treatments such as castor oil packs will more likely cause cancer to spread and metastasize. To find a naturopathic physician that can help address your health needs using complementary medicine techniques, please visit our page on naturopathic medicine.

Cancer is too complex of a condition for self help treatment. As primary care doctors, naturopathic physicians are not licensed to treat cancer, but they can work effectively in conjunction with your Oncologist to lessen the side effects of treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation. A naturopath can also help you address the root cause of disease, and restore your health post-treatment to help ensure optimal wellness so the cancer is less likely to return.

  1. I would never try and treat yourself for cancer or any other serious disease. That is what the professionals are for.

  2. I have thyroid cancer, and someone mentioned that I could put a castor oil pack with frankincense essential oil on it to help reduce the tumor. Is it the castor oil that is a problem in potential spreading, or it is the HEATing of the castor oil that might cause spread?

  3. I repeat a question asked previously, but can’t find an answer.
    Is it the castor oil that is a problem in potential cancer spreading, or it is the HEATing of the castor oil that might cause spread?
