5.0 out of 5 stars The Oil That Heals 30 Mar 2009
This book is based on the work of Edgar Cayce. It is a well written book that gives you an history of the oil and its uses. It is quite staggering to find out that this oil is capable of improving and curing a variety of medical conditions, and it explains how to apply it. The book covers case histories of people suffering a variety of illnesses and the recoveries made by the use of this oil. It is a pity main stream medicine dont use cures like these as they are safe to use, cheaper and no dangerous side effects. The index lists too many illnesses to bother counting, some i have never heard of. If you like alternative medicine, then you would be wanting a copy of this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oil that heals 19 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I had to trawl through far too many pages about Edward Cayse which is not what I wanted this book for. I ended up speed reading through all those pages in order to get to the info I wanted, which is 'successes using castor oil'....I found the book disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 28 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The information given in this book is not far short of being miraculous and having tried it castor oil since I read the book, I can confirm from my experience that castor oil is magic. I've put it on small wounds ( not had any big ones) and it does seem to heal quickly. Using it currently over my whole abdomen area and as a laxative after a liver flush, also to see if it helps with my internal piles. All seems ok, tis a work in progress.

5.0 out of 5 stars The healing properties of castor packs. 26 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Dr. William McGarey has used castor packs for over 30 years in his medical practice. His book, The Oil that Heals, is a detailed text on McCarey's research on the history of castor packs and their miraculous effect on such diseases as cancer, hepatitis, arthritis, migraines, and digestive disorders. McGarey integrates much of Edgar Cayce's knowledge of the miraculous castor plant and his extraordinary knowledge of the human body and physiology. The book is well researched and filled with case histories from patients and physicians. The Oil that Heals is a must-read for any one serious about healing their body and getting maximum benefits from this ancient oil.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful healing oil 7 Aug 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The Oil That Heals: A Physician's Successes With Castor Oil Treatmentsis a detailed account of the work that Dr. William McGarey did with castor oil packs for over 30 years as a medical doctor.McGarey speaks of what we may term the 'miraculous curative effect' on a wide range of modern diseases.

If you are serious about keeping your body healthy I advise you to read this book.

My life experiences with the therapeutic use of castor oil started in the 1970s after I read the Edgar Cayce: The Sleeping Prophet by Jess Stern. I almost immediately adopted using castor oil for healing. I found out that folk tradition in my country (Guyana) also supported this view.

My most dramatic experience with the healing powers of castor oil came in 1988 when I was living in the Turks & Caicos Islands. I had a friend who was one of the four doctors on Grand Turk island. One Thurdsay evening he suddenly came down with a high fever. Little did we know then that it was a recurrence of hepatatis that he has originally contracted in India. The next day he was worse and he other three doctors proposed flying him in to Miami for diagnosis and treatment.

His wife was frantic and did no want him flown out of the island as she had a small baby and could not accompany him. Then she remembered that she has once checked my medicine cuboard and found only three items--aloe vera, baking soda and castor oil. She was amused when I said that those were the only things I needed for my health. She did pay attention to my account of how Edgar Cayce used Castor oil for healing.

About three hours before her husband was to be sent to Miami she came to me and said her intuition told her that castor oil would help. We bought up all the castor oil we could find on the island. Then we created a pack and applied a heating pad. Within an hour my friend's delerium and fever went. He felt so much better that he was able to persuade his colleagues that there was no need to send him for further treatment.Over the weekend he used the pack and by Monday he was back on the job.

While he was in the Caribbean my friend used castor on his patients who had caesearen operations. In all 86 cases there was no post operative scarring. There was one case where I saw one of his patients who had a badly burnt foot recover completely in a week.

Today I still have castor oil in my medicine cabinet. It continues to help nature to heal faster. I hope you read Dr. McGarey's book and learn to use castor oil therapy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL BOOK 13 July 2008
By Kathleen Wacholtz - Published on
I sure wish I had read this book a long time ago. I have applied the information I've learned from Dr. McGarey and have had results that are surely in line with what he experienced with his patients over his forty-year practice. I would recommend this book to everyone who is willing to make an effort to help themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars I use castor oil all the time 3 Mar 2012
By tarotqueen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of castor oil. It takes 10 years off your facs if you use it as a skin moisturizer by the way. This book gets into a lot that I didn't know. Castor heals lots of stuff and should be one of your go to remidies. it would save you a lot of money that would normally go to pharmacuticle companies.
