Castor Oil

Castor Oil is regarded as one of the most valuable laxatives in medicine. It is especially useful for temporary constipation and wherever a mild action is essential, and is extremely useful for children and the aged. It is used in cases of colic and acute diarrhoea due to slow digestion, but must not be used in cases of chronic constipation, which it only aggravates whilst relieving the symptoms. The mode of its action is unknown. It is also used for expelling worms, after other special remedies have been administered.
