The Oil That Heals: A Physician's Successes with Castor Oil Treatments
The Oil That Heals: A Physician's Successes with Castor Oil Treatments
Price: £7.46

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting case studies but some annoying incongruities and not always a very free flowing read...., 7 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.... Furthermore even though McGarey lists medical conditions for which Casey recommended Castor Oil (including Neuritis, Parkinson's, Cerebral Palsy et al.), he himself does not seem to have tried using Castor Oil for these conditions and later mentions that Castor Oil packs are no good for neurological problems (even though he supposedly did successfully treat ADHD) - these incongruities do not do the author any favors and you wonder if the book could have been better structured and edited - for Castor Oil sakes!? (funnily McGarey does claim to be a consummate and experienced writer - about himself)

Good, thick terry couch cover. Does fit 30"*75", but - just! There is a bit of uncovered couch at foot end. Great price though, so cannot complain overall!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great phone functionally and from design, CS and mobile parts could use improvements, 7 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice phone, fell in love wit the design, which has not disappointed in real life.

Positives: - faster than my Sony Xperia; - longer battery power than my Sony; - good functionality. Overall much better than I expected at the price!!!

Negatives: - Customer Service availability pretty much zero. I received the phone, and as I struggled to find out where and how to place my memory card, unscrewed and screwed back the back cover several times - one of the screws then broke off. First tried to replace it, but Doogee cannot send a replacement screw. Got a GBP 8 refund, but spend more than that trying to order a fitting screw from alternate places. Then found that the screw actually broke off inside housing, so won't be able to fix it.
(one screw holds the back cover fine though, will just have a problem if that one breaks too...)
- rubber cap covering charger and headphone socket came off after 4 weeks use, have to stick it back in/ on manually every time now.
- playlists did not sync properly, had to create manually on handset.
- no functionality to have different ringtones for each SIM.
- charging cable was defect

If Doogee and Doogee vendors want to improve their sales and image, please have more customer service availability: spare parts etc, and (online or wherever) user manuals. Many thanks

3.0 out of 5 stars ok - and a msileading title, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this DVD to get some tips on improving my tantric work. I did managed to get some, but I found no more than 5-10min of the whole DVD helpful. The rest seems mostly filler, unlrealistic and even annoying. The facilitator seems to like to hear himself talk? There is an initial 25min lecture, which is somewhat tedious though, as he contstantlty reads off a piece of paper (I would have expected free speech!). Plus more than once he trys to flog you his other DVDs. Multiple orgasms end up just being a process of ever increasing/ heigtening ones plateu phase - which I would call an intensifying orgasm technique (from what I saw there is still just one climax at the end (if that!)), not a multiple orgasm. (I did fast forward quite a bit though, as bored).
The actors are handsome, but one asks oneself if the massagee actually enjoys being massaged, as he does not become erect? (and to an essential part of tantric work is enjoyment)
From a professional tantric masseur perspective a lot of the tought techniques are unusable. Most clients would probably be put off by me drumming over them and asking them to do extensive breath work (most clients are far too stressed for that, they need proper massage first and then there is not all that much time left for what is shown (else massage would have to be 3-4 hrs total). The whole thing might be more suitable for couples wanting to experiment.

1.0 out of 5 stars potential side effects seem more extensive than advertised, 27 Nov. 2013
Have taken this for 3 months. My hair looks a bit thicker on top, but could just be the new hair cut. Originally researched safety of product on here and ratings seemed alright, so I went for it. Pretty sure my libido and energy levels have taken a hit since taking this product. Started to research if that would be possible today and found quite a few reports on the net, of guys developing serious sexual dysfunctions up to complete erectile dysfunction, so it does not seem to be just in my head. A bit peeved off that official product side effects do not make any mention whatsoever about this though....

1.0 out of 5 stars more of a Moreodorant than a Desodorant, 18 Dec. 2012
Thought I'd treat myself to some organic deo.
What a let down though. Showered, rolled on Jason and reeked only 30min later. Probably more than had I not put any deo at all! Was in the middle of massaging a client when I relaized my deo had failed - quickly went to the bathroom and reapplied some Jason (put tons!). Lasted literally about 10 min, whereafeter I smelled again. Luckly found some old chemical deo in my travel case to apply then.

What do they put in this product? seems to feed bacteria to produce more odour rather than stop them!
