How to Cleanse and Detox with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs for Balanced Testosterone Levels

Why Men Need to Cleanse and Detox While They Sleep

It’s that time of year again, my friend. When we start our search for a quick and easy cleanse and detox practice so we can look good now and feel better after a long winter of lack, right?

 

Lack of sun, lack of energy & balance, lack of exercise, lack of a healthy diet…the list goes on, agreed?

One thing we certainly aren’t lacking is a build-up of stress and toxins (also known as ‘garbage’), and the discomforts of possible leaky gut symptoms we experience because of them, wouldn’t you agree?

Then what happens? Well, you start to feel like your body is backed up with all that ‘garbage’. Kind of like a house that never gets visited by the weekly garbage truck. Can you see it?

Cleansing and Detoxing your body is easier with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil-Packs

Are You Searching For an Easy Way To Cleanse and Detox To Boost Your Lackluster Energy Levels?

And, for most people, the idea of cleansing and detoxing is crunching on carrot sticks, while almost drowning yourself in 8 cups of water all day and then joining a hot yoga class twice a week after work. And this alone is a deterrent to the thought of even attempting a cleanse, especially for men. Would you agree?

Because, let’s face it, after working in a mentally and physically demanding environment all day, the last thing he wants to do is anything at the end of it.

Even though he would LOVE to feel good with an energy boost from a balanced production of hormones such as testosterone, to start his car rebuild in the garage or finish drywalling the basement, or even for a romantic night out on the town with his partner, he just can’t find the energy.

With the months of fighting with heartburn that feels like fire is going to barrel up your throat like a rocket launcher, to the weeks of constipation that feels like a football is lodged in your large intestine, on top of having to be mentally and physically present every day, how can the idea of anything else be of interest anyway?

Not to mention hobbies and date nights become just another task that is put off over and over again

 

Cleanse and Detox While You Sleep

So, how can we as health care practitioners help with improving energy, balance hormones, regulate gut inflammation and address those uncomfortable, energy-draining symptoms from the overburden of toxin accumulation from those long winter months?

With the Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit!

A simple and easy-to-use tool kit to improve hormonal balance and optimize overall health and well-being.

And to restore balance in his day-night cycle by regulating the inflammation in the gut while you or your partner sleeps…it just doesn’t get any easier!

This is a super important step in a detox process, especially for men, to ensure optimal production of his testosterone levels while he sleeps, which will have him waking with that burst of energy he needs to seize the day!

Reduce Stress and Inflammation with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs

You know the feeling, right? Instead of waking in a sluggish, foggy state, you wake up before your alarm and jump out of bed ready to knock off the list of “to-do’s” that you have been wanting to get done for so long with gusto!

The reality is that without optimal functioning of our clogged-up cleansing and detoxing organs, we tend to wake feeling tired and sluggish more often than not. Would you agree?

 

Detoxing the Liver with Lifestyle Changes & Castor Oil (No, not Castrol “Motor” Oil)

So, here is when we begin the practice of cleansing and detoxing. In the morning, on waking, with the dry brushing tool.

Priming our engine with dry brushing in the morning stimulates circulation and influences that healthy flow, rhythm and harmony that our body is so much in need of.

Without this priming, we tend to experience some lag when we hit the gas in the morning, instead of that thrust of pick up and go!

Next, we want to hit the kitchen, where the beet juice is, to begin the day with gut-healing nourishment.

Because nitric acid, the powerful component in beet juice, acts as a healing performance accelerator in the regulation of inflammation in the gut by increasing circulation1, which leads to reducing & removing those fiery symptoms of leaky gut.

Then, in the evening, apply the Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack to your liver region where the castor oil can begin the process of regulating inflammation2, while the pack brings a wonderful and calming effect on your nervous system by promoting the “feel good” hormones3:

  • Dopamine – our motivator
  • Oxytocin – our love and happiness booster
Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs is a quick and easy cleanse and detox practice

The release of these feel-good hormones will then promote the release of all of the mental, emotional and physical stress from the day, and prepare you for a proper night’s sleep.

Plus, during your slumber, testosterone production begins to increase from the stimulation of circulation with every hour and, on waking, you’ll have more energy than you did the day before creating the balance in your day-night cycle your body has so desperately been craving.

The best part? Your Day and Night Detox Kit also comes with a Castor Oil Eye Compress (a sleep eye mask) so you can naturally increase melatonin4-5, your sleep hormone and gently reset your sleep-wake cycle! Amazing, right?

The other best part? You can block out light at night and because it’s light in color, your Eye Compress lets light in naturally so you can wake up with the sun. Sounds nice, agreed?

King of Energy and Hormone Balance

Because a daily ritual of using your Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit, combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle changes, will help create a healthy gut environment rewarding you with the relief of those disruptive, painful and uncomfortable symptoms.

You’ll sleep like a king and wake to take on your day with the energy of a champion.

And when your body is no longer going 100 miles an hour while stuck in first gear, your energy will increase at a smooth pace – just like the gradual shifting of gears through butter.

So, take the tarp off that old beast in the garage, because you will soon be tinkering with your favorite hobbies from your newfound increase in energy and luster.

Let’s celebrate with a pint to kick off your new Queen of the Thrones® Cleanse and Detox practice.

A pint of nourishing beet juice, of course!

How do Castor Oil Packs work?

May 13, 2022

How do Castor Oil Packs work?

As a health care practitioner, you may have prescribed the traditional treatment method of castor oil packs for liver detox, lymphatic drainage or colon cleansing, right?

You did this by saturating an old cloth with castor oil and applying that gooey mess to various parts of the body because you know of the great health benefits that this treatment method offers. Can you relate?

And, if you’re like me, you stopped prescribing the old way of applying castor oil packs because that 12-step method was too messy, too complicated and your patients just didn’t comply to it. And I don’t blame them, do you?

Or maybe you had your patients do it the “lazy way” by simply just rubbing on the castor oil and then having them wear an old t-shirt. Sound familiar?

But, with the application of just the castor oil without the castor oil pack, we only get half of the benefits.

The science of how castor oil packs work for lymphatic drainage and cleansing

Firstly, it’s mechanical, with the compression of the pack placed over the liver (slightly covering the lower free ribs under your right rib cage), in combination with the movement of your breathing muscles, this serves to act like a pump to your lymphatic system encouraging lymphatic drainage1. Amazing, agreed?

Secondly, it’s neurological, when placed on specific dermatomes this activates the somatic visceral reflexes triggering the activity of internal detox and cleansing organs like the liver, kidney, gut, gallbladder2 and more.

Thirdly, it’s a combination of both mechanical and neurological because the Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack stimulates the body’s skin receptors which stimulate the natural oxytocin3 feedback loop activating the vagus nerve, shifting the body into a rest and digest state where liver detox is optimized.

It’s this direct effect of the castor oil pack compress that stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system4-5-6. Amazing, right?

Plus, the penetration of the castor oil into the tissues stimulates lymphatic drainage and reduces inflammation via the Peyer’s patches7.

With no pack, castor oil will not penetrate as deeply and would act much more like a skin emollient, so the full range of benefits of the oil cannot be reaped.

 

Why is it important for castor oil to be in glass?

Lipotoxicity is why it is imperative to use castor oil that has only been contained in a glass bottle rather than in plastic8-9-10.

You see, castor oil is the master carrier oil, due to its structure and the molecular weight of ricinoleic acid11. And because of this amazing capability of transporting and transferring substances into the body, it is of the utmost importance to only use a high-quality oil that is organic, extra-virgin, cold-pressed, hexane-free and in glass.

And I am sure we are both on the same page when it comes to ensuring our prescriptions and protocols – like the application of Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs coming from a plastic-free environment – are helpful for our patients and ourselves, and not a harmful endocrine disruptive burden. Would you agree?

Applying castor oil to your pack and why the pack needs to be replaced to avoid toxin reabsorption or transfer

Pouring a fresh coat of castor oil onto the Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack with each application is an important part of the protocol, as is replacing your castor oil pack.

Why? Well simply because we are unsure where the castor oil and toxins it collects eliminate through the body, or back into the pack through the skin.

A study compared oral castor oil metabolites and the metabolites produced with the castor oil pack and no castor oil metabolites were produced with the castor oil pack12.

This suggests that either the castor oil wasn’t absorbed or that the metabolites came out another way, perhaps via the skin into the pack.

So, to prevent possible reabsorption of any toxins that are being pulled out by castor oil, use a fresh coat of oil on every application and replace the pack every 3 months.

   

Plus, when it comes to fertility, it is especially important to ensure that your liver pack is placed only on the liver, the pelvic pack only on the pelvis over top of the uterus and ovaries, and the thyroid pack only on the thyroid. This is to avoid any possible transfer of toxins from organ to organ. Makes sense, right?

 

Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs – the game changer

With the application of this new and easy way of an old traditional method, with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs in your practice, your patients, in most cases, will come back to you in follow-ups feeling better – because they can easily comply – and can safely be used with any other prescriptions that you recommend.

Plus, with regular practice your patients will train their body to respond better to stress, as well as naturally liver detox, lymphatic drain and colon cleanse with the support from their Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs.

Then what happens is we begin to start…
