called vibratory, when it is used therapeutically. For the 

present time, however, it probably is proper to say that the 
method of healing by using this oil is still undetermined. 

The results, however, have been apparent—not only in my 

experience, but in ancient times, as well as earlier in this 
century as reported in the medical literature.

It was twenty-six years ago that I first wrote a book about 
the use of castor oil in the practice of medicine. At that time, 

the manuscript was intended to be a simple report on the 

use of castor oil packs in the healing process of the human

learned and some of the interesting happenings that have

healed, and I've found the mind (the conscious and the sub- 

conscious) to be the link among the body, the emotions, 
and the spiritual essence of what we really are. The Bible 

with its wisdom, the Edgar Cayce readings, the mind, and 

the body are all interrelated through the use of these amaz-
