Castor Oil Pack to Treat Ovarian Cancer?
Q. Can I use a castor oil pack to treat my 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.

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.
