Everybody wants to cleanse when it’s spring, would you agree?

While cleansing is a natural body function, did you know it doesn’t happen just once a year? In fact, it’s a daily occurrence – correction, it’s a nightly occurrence.

Here you will learn how to cleanse while you sleep with Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs and the Eye Compress no matter the time of year.

So when your patients, and you, are looking for support in removing the discomforts of leaky gut and hormone imbalance symptoms from the stress they’ve been dealing with, to feel their best in their bodies with the energy of an Olympic athlete… wanting it all now, and by now they mean yesterday…

You’ll be ready to share an easy, doable, Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit.

The above scenario sounds all too familiar? Correct?

This is a perfect example of what you find yourself or your patient saying…

Balance your Health and Recover your Energy and with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs

“I’m so desperately wanting to clean up my life, and not just emptying my closets and decluttering my house… It’s me! I don’t have the energy to do everything I want to do. I’m constipated, always exhausted, can’t sleep and I’m so stressed, and I feel like my brain is all fogged up.”

And then the question comes…

Can I cleanse & detox with a supplement?

Cleansing with Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs help to improve your health

Ah yes, the one and done supplemental band-aid prescription. Everybody wants it. Even you and you know better. But that’s ok, because it’s human nature, especially living in today’s day and age.

We want it now, and by now I mean yesterday. Can you relate?

But you look back on your life, and what have the quick fixes done for you? Nothing, because nobody benefits from it in the long run. It may feel good for a period of time but leaves you in the same place you started in. A rut. Agreed?

The key to cleansing and detoxing isn’t seasonal, it’s nightly

What Works? It’s not something you just do in the spring, although it’s a great time to start. What really shifts overtime and improves your leaky gut and hormone Imbalance, is the regular practice of supporting what your body does best.

Sleeping, resting, healing and cleaning!

Yes, that’s right, easy practices that you repeat nightly that become as easy and mindless as brushing your teeth because you know you need to brush off the biofilm for good dental health to prevent cavities, agreed?

Well, your body is no different. There is a way to support your regular, nightly and daytime cleansing.

What about dairy?

You know as much as you, or your patients would love to do a “trendy” cleanse or detox that, for most of us, is just too hard. Too many bells and whistles to commit to, right?

Because a cleanse or detox, well that my friend, involves giving up the things you and they love, like red wine, gluten and dairy, and maybe other foods that they find on their food sensitivity testing.

Plus, they’ve either experienced before or heard about the dreadful and very possible aggravating symptoms.

Learn with Queen of the Thrones What you should avoid during a Cleanse and Detox process

And how are you going to get them, or yourself to do a complicated cleanse or detox if they don’t have the energy to do it?I mean this is why they are sitting in front of you, with ZERO energy, correct?

So, to even initiate a single task or avoid yourself or your patients experiencing another uncomfortable symptom, you are going to have to get creative. Sound too good to be true?

It’s not, read on…

Because you can cleanse and detox while you sleep,

Here’s how…

What’s in a name? Well, everything.

You know your patients are exhausted, you know the first step to healing is like when you are building a house from scratch.

You clean (cleanse or detox) up the land (your body) before building a house so you have a strong sturdy foundation. Makes sense, agreed?

But if there isn’t any energy, how can this happen?

Easily, with the Queen of the Thrones® Day & Night Detox Kit, complete with your Castor Oil Liver Pack, Eye Compress and Dry Brush.

Once you have your pack on, you then dab a couple drops of castor oil around the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, so you can reduce signs of aging, enhance circulation7 and lymphatic drainage. What’s next?

You then slip on your Eye Compress and get comfy in your bed. When your head hits the pillow you’re relaxed as your eye compress gently blocks out distracting lights and makes you feel sleepy because it supports melatonin production8-9.

Plus, your Castor Oil Liver Pack feels like a hug that naturally stimulates the production of your feel-good hormones, oxytocin10-11 and dopamine12-13, so you’re ready to drift off into a relaxing deep slumber. Wonderful, agreed?

Morning comes and you start your shower, setting aside your Dry Brush & Castor Oil for when you step out. Starting from your ankles, working your way to your heart, you gently brush small circular motions.

The best part? It’s truly relaxing but what it’s doing is delivering anti-inflammatory14 nutrients like vitamin E, polyphenols and omegas15-16 and stimulating lymphatic flow. Why does this matter in the morning? Read on!

Now, you might be wondering because your patients might ask you…

Why and how does cleansing, detox and drainage happen while I’m sleeping?

Working with the body and the natural laws, we are already privy, according to traditional Chinese Medicine Doctors, that the hour of the liver is between 1-3 am, where the majority of liver detox occurs, at 3-5am the lungs supports lymphatic drainage, and at 5-7am is when colon cleansing occurs.

So, detox, drainage and cleansing overnight in the liver, lymphatics and colon can happen overnight when you’re sleeping.

This is connected to chronobiology research, the best time to do things for your body supports what the ancient Chinese doctors already knew.

What supports cleansing overnight, wearing a sleep aid compress to naturally promote melatonin. When you wake up in the morning, naturally pump cortisol with a dry brush.

Day and Night Fluctuations ot your Rest and Alert Hormones by Queen of the Thrones

Both the liver and microbiome are most active during sleep, and there is a lot of cleaning going on, so why not:

  • Promote healthy sleep
  • Support the gut and microbiome
  • Reduce inflammation in the liver

All this to simply support and help the body naturally to do what it is supposed to do, stay clean!

How do Castor Oil Packs work?

How do Castor Oil Packs work?

Learn with Queen of the Thrones How Castor Oil Packs Work and how they help you to improve your health

How do Castor Oil Packs work?

Written by: Victoria Williams R.H.N.
Medically reviewed by: Melanie Swackhammer B.A.

Est. reading time: 9 minutes.

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

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil plus the pack help you you to obtain better health results

How do 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.
Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Packs Help you to activate the Vagus Nerve feedback
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?

Why you need to replace your Castor Oil Pack?

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…

You see, this is what makes Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs so unique and game-changing.

How to support hormone and skin health with Castor Oil Packs

Have you been applying pimple creams containing hydroxy acids and/or benzoyl peroxide with no change in those painful and embarrassing pustules?

You see, it can take time to clear up acne, and with the help of Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Packs to support your hormone and skin health, we can speed up the process in a healthy way. Sounds wonderful, right?

Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Pack support Hormone Balance for a Glowing Skin

One thing I noticed when working with my patients and clients who struggle with hormonal acne breakouts, is that when I improve their liver health and get their hormones in balance, their skin starts GLOWING!

Would you love to wake up each morning to wash your face & shower your body only to feel and see smooth, blemish-free skin looking back at you?

Are your hormones imbalanced and in need of liver support?

Let’s look at the following symptoms:

  • Acne (Inflamed pustules/comedones on face, back, chest, shoulders, buttocks)
  • Skin irritation/rashes
  • Bloating
  • Brain fog
  • Constipation
  • Feelings of anger (liver is associated with emotions like irritability and anger)
  • PMS (tender breasts, cramping, moodiness
  • Waking up between the hours of 1-3am

Is this you? If you experience any of these symptoms it could indicate that your liver needs some love.

In my practice I teach my patients that, when we are not able to remove toxins (due to the need of liver detoxification) from the body optimally we can push them out through the skin, therefore experiencing hormonal acne breakouts.

Recommendations for Hormonal Acne Breakouts

In my personal experience as a Chiropractic Doctor, if I may share, using the following AMAZING recommendations for acne-prone skin, that both myself AND my patients and clients have implemented have resulted in a profound improvement in our skin health:

Here are my favorite ways how:

1. Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver: if you do nothing else, Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver can be an amazing way to help support liver health. Castor Oil helps to reduce inflammation of hormonal acne breakouts, support gut health and support liver detoxification.

2. Add in liver supporting foods: My favorites are cruciferous veggies (broccoli. Cauliflower, arugula, cabbage), green tea, bone broth, dandelion root and leaf, leafy greens, carrots, beets, garlic and pasture-raised eggs.

3. Supporting detoxification pathways by making sure you are sweating a few times each week either through: Activity, a hot Epsom bath or sauna, implementing dry brushing, using a rebounder, acupuncture, muscle work/massage and Chiropractic care.

4. Reduce environmentally toxic exposures: artificial fragrance, artificial ingredients, plastics/BPA.

Remember that what we see on the outside, is a reminder of what needs to be supported on the inside and hormonal acne breakouts are a reminder of ways we can be loving our insides more.

So, if you love the look and feel of soft, smooth, pain-free, acne-free skin, start with your Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pack for Liver Begin your journey of smooth blemish-free skin by supporting liver cleansing, hormone balancing, absorbing nourishing food and supplements better, reduction of bloating, and best of all no more hormonal acne breakouts!

1. How can Castor Oil Packs calm period pain and inflammation?

Do you find yourself dreading your period because you know that your inevitable cramps that have you doubled over in pain are on their way, right?

Well, would you love to know how Castor Oil Pelvic Pack can be your fire hose so you can reduce inflammation and pain before, during and after your period? Do you feel like this is too good to be true? It’s ok, stay with me here.*

Queen of the Thrones® Castor Oil Pelvic Pack health solutions for Endometriosis and PCOS

You see, because Castor Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory¹, when you pair that with your cozy pelvic pack compress, it’s kind of like a weighted blanket for all of your reproductive organs so you can naturally relax and reduce inflammation. Sounds amazing, right? .

But maybe you feel like inflammation is a normal part of your day to day because you have endometriosis, PCOS, or uterine fibroids, can you relate?

Well, kind of like how an ice pack reduces swelling and inflammation when you have an injury, your Castor Oil Pelvic Pack is your new way to reduce the pain you get from inflammation, but without the cold!

The best part? It’s like a gentle massage for your abdomen and pelvis so your body can naturally relax when your hormones are causing a raging storm inside your body. Oh, you can also wrap it around your lower back if you have hip and back pain. Or wear it over your breasts to support lymphatic flow. Amazing, agreed?!

So, now that you know how you can naturally reduce inflammation with your Castor Oil Pack, you might also be wondering…

2. How Castor Oil Packs balance your hormones and support your irregular period.

Queen of the Thrones® Pelvic Pack Love Formula

Do you feel disconnected from your body because you have no idea what’s going on with your hormones? Your period is early one month and two weeks late the next, right? Plus, the more unpredictable it is, the more stressed you are and that makes it come even later – does this sound like you?

Would you love to know how your Organic Castor Oil Pelvic Pack can help you stress less so you can support your irregular period? You’re still in the right place!

You see, the soft compression of your Organic Castor Oil Pelvic Pack on your skin calms your entire system and stimulates the release of feel-good “love and connection” hormones so you can naturally promote the production of our feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine², as well as our love and connection hormone, oxytocin³.

Plus, oxytocin also lowers cortisol (your stress hormone) and balances blood pressure⁴, leading to healthy levels of progesterone. Why does this matter? Well, studies show that there is a connection between higher levels of anxiety when progesterone levels are higher⁵.

But remember, rest and relaxation takes practice. The best part? Your Organic Castor Oil Pelvic Pack gives your body the chance to practice over and over again, so be gentle with yourself.

Now that you know about your new self-care tool, would you love to know how you can use snack food to support your monthly cycle?

3. Can you regulate and balance your hormones through eating seeds?

Maybe you already have your go-to drinks for when you have your period- your raspberry leaf tea, and of course, your peppermint tea to help your dreaded nausea, right?

Well, would you love to have snacks on hand so you can naturally support your cycle before and after your period? It’s as simple as eating specific types of seeds during specific days of your cycle, also known as seed cycling. Wait, what?! It’s true! At particular times of the month, you can better regulate your hormones by eating various seeds and oils. Amazing, agreed?!

Queen of the Thrones Moon and Seeds Cycle for your health

Psst, seeds like flax and pumpkin seeds are estrogenic in nature and help in the follicular period, or bleeding to ovulation. Would you love to try seed cycling for yourself but you’re not sure where to begin?

Well, you’re in the right place because I’ve created a FREE eGuide so you can start seed cycling. Oh, you’ll also get an inside look at your new Queen of the Thrones® Organic Castor Oil Pelvic Pack. So exciting, agreed?!
