Remedy Description

Source: http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/gott1.asp

I Dear Dr. Gott: I read your column in my local

newspaper regarding the use of castor oil

for degenerative disc disease. I have osteoporosis,

constant back pain and have had back

surgery. Nothing seems to help. I would like

to know how much castor oil to take at a time,

and how to use it.

Dear Reader: Castor oil is a potent laxative

when swallowed. When used to reduce the pain

of arthritis, the product is applied to the skin

over the painful joint and is rubbed in well once

or twice a day. I should remind you that topical

castor oil is not effective for some patients, but

its worth a try. In my experience, the most suc-

cessful product is called Castiva, available in either

a warming or cooling form. It has been

available at Walgreens and is now also available

at CVS pharmacies
