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.

Decent read. Very interesting to see which conditions this MD had success in treating. McGarey does make clear that most his portrayed cases are anecdotal, but does include a self-designed study, where he randomly (???? - did not find a specification of the randomization process, but maybe because I was speed reading by then) selected 81 of his cases, which had been treated with Castor Oil (packs) and divides these in either excellent - good or poor treatment results. It feels a bit crude, but maybe because the book was published before computer usage and data mining really took off? What I really would have liked to read about is potential side effects - did not find a single mention. E.g. when I rub myself with castor oil before bed, I feel really achy after a while and sleep is more uncomfortable - I assume it might be some cleansing reaction, but the book just does not give any indication. There is a good part of the book, where McGarey theorizes about potential ways Castor Oil might assist the body in healing - it's quite a heavy read, very abstract and not really helped by all the extracts from Casey readings. Even with some medical training (years back) much of it is quite unintelligible to me. Casey supposedly also claimed that one has to be a believer (Christian?) for Castor Oil to work. McGarey does not seem to go out of his way to disprove this - which in turn makes you wonder though - is Castor Oil just a really good placebo? I do not think that is what McGarey believes, and it likely is not - but the 'one has to believe in it' statement, I find, is quite the killer argument in connection with any complementary or alternative therapy....
