I thought this was an excellent post by Azurite about Biofilms and Hibernation Zones, concerning parasites- and how using castor oil packs works.
Here's what it says:
A common theme at CureZone is people having some initial success in their healing process with good visible results such as more energy, less pain or tiredness and the passing of flukess etc etc. Then these posters will continue to hang around because there are still lingering issues like more flukes still passing, some bloating still present or headaches etc. Signs that the body is still not well although there has been some modification of overall health.
There may be something more at play that is not being fully addressed. Parasites are resilient and clever. They know how to hide and remain undetected by the immune system. They also work in concert with each other to mount their attacks. They know very well when the body ph is low or the immune system is impaired. They can hibernate for long periods of time.
Problems can occur from two areas that are not being fully addressed. Hidden infections and hibernation zones. Hidden infections come from mycobacterium and nanobacteria. These infections are slow low grade in nature and keep the immune system on alert at all times. This drains the energy of the body and sets up the other critters to get an edge and do their hit and run tactics. Hidden infections result from vaccinations
like smallpox and from the teeth and the jawbone.
Biofilms are different. They cannot be detected by the immune system! The reason is that the biofilm is created by the immune system and so it is not recognized. Biofilms are difficult to reach as well. Many biofilms are not even reached by the blood or the lymphatics which is why they cannot be eradicated easily.
Killing the live critters is easy. The biofilms are a different story. Since the microbes hibernate in the biofilm they are able to launch their attack at a later date especially when the body ph is low enough for them to thrive. That is why keeping the ph neutral is so essential and also why these opportunistic parasites mostly show up when the ph is off kilter.
These parasites are also quite clever because they have a hit and run strategy that throws off the immune system. They can jump the tracks when they are directly confronted. They will actually jump from the intestine to the peritonial cavity and hang out there until the coast is clear. That is why other strategies are required to kill parasites and why some are having limited success in the healing process.
The right strategy needs to be employed to be effective in dealing with these critters and understanding the strategy of these highly sophisticated parasites is essential to be successful. This might be another piece of the puzzle in order to achieve quantum health.
This is about the Castor Oil Pack:
Your question regarding the influence of oil and biofilms is right on the money. Your intuition is working quite well. When critters set up shop in the peritoneal cavity they can become protected with biofilms. A biofilm is a mucoidol coating created by the immune system. Once the biofilm is established the body considers itself to be 'safe' from the threat and no longer pays it much attention.
The parasites can hibernate for as much as a year or more inside of this 'protective' shield ultimately using it against the host. They hide inside the biofilm and resurface in the intestines at a later date. There are various ways to break down the biofilms which also exist in other organs and glands and not just the cavity surrounding the guts.
The most effective way I know to immediately get the critters moving out of this particular biofilm is to use a castor oil pack. So oil is the answer. Neem or oregano oil can be added. What the COPack does is force the critters to mobilize because they don't like this one bit. Beware that once they are hatched they will immediately move into the intestines so anyone attempting this aggressive action might want to be doing some paracidal herbs at the same time to kill all of them.
As for the neem bark and oil. The oil is very strong tasting but it has remarkable properties. By dabbing a small amount of the oil in the palm of the hand one can then add a tiny amount of the neem bark and make a paste. Rubbing this paste into the gums will stop any infection and it will also grow back damaged tissues such as a receding gumline. It tastes very strong and should only be applied to the affected areas since it can stain the teeth.
When I lived in India in the Himalayas everyone would walk up and down the streets chewing the neem twigs which were sold in bundles of twenty or so. The neem sticks were fairly straight, dark toned, bitter tasting and maybe five inches
in length and a little thicker than a straw. By constant chewing of the stick and slow pacing up and down the street the person was almost in a walking meditation. Chewing the bitter stick forces the mouth to salivate and spitting out is easily facilitated by being in the street. Eventually the stick is crushed and splintered after about twenty minutes. The neem is antibacterial and the chewing strengthens the teeth and gums and the salivation detoxes the mouth. Many people in India have strong white teeth. Neem could be the reason.
Edgar Cayce suggested Castor Oil pack's for many thousands in his health readings. He said it had an effect upon the Peyer's Patches found in the small intestine and to this day it is not understood entirely how the patches are stimulated by the COPack. It is not even understood exactly what the P Patches do themselves except that they are part of the lymphatics and affect hormone production.
I have actually oil pulled using castor oil and I posted some information on this at the OP forum. What the castor oil pull does is act very much like swallowing the oil which most know has a laxative effect. Evidently some oil may pass into the digestive system while oil pulling. At least that is my opinion since when I did the COPull it had me using the commode in exactly five hours. Literature on castor oil even says the transit time is five hours.
So a word of caution. Castor oil has a substance called ricinoleoc acid. It is not found anywhere else in nature. Anyone who is pregnant should not OP with castor unless they want to stimulate and induce child birth. An COPull may seem benign but I would not do it if I was preggers.
I am surpised there is so little discussion on castor oil at the CureZone. It's practically non existent. It is no less than a miraculous healing substance, little understood, and very much under the radar. It dissolves fibroids and warts, heals wounds, opens up the gall bladder, activates the liver, is an anti infective and anti inflammatory etc etc. It might get a little more attention now that the word is out on its unparalled ability to be a biofilm buster though. We'll see
