Castor Oil Packs and Thyroid Health with Carrie Vitt
Show Notes

The lymphatic system is crucial in keeping our bodies healthy by helping eliminate waste products. Without a pump, it's essential to support your lymphatic system by keeping it moving, and castor oil packs are a great way to do just that.

For centuries, castor oil packs have been used as a natural therapy on various parts of the body, from the liver to the abdomen, joints, and thyroid. The process is simple and starts with applying a piece of cloth soaked in castor oil to the skin. The pack is then covered with plastic wrap and a heat source, such as a hot water bottle, and left on for a specific time.

For this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Carrie Vitt about the incredible benefits of castor oil packs for thyroid health. Carrie is a Functional Nutritional Therapist at Our Well House and the publisher of the health and wellness site, Deliciously Organic. Carrie specializes in teaching how to use nutrition, detox therapies, and lifestyle changes for those with thyroid disease and autoimmunity.

In this conversation, Carrie and I explore how castor oil packs can benefit people with both hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s, how Carrie approaches iodine supplementation, the simple steps you can use to get started with castor oil packs, some of Carrie’s favorite essential oils to support both the thyroid and immune system, and more. Enjoy the episode!
