There are an incredible number of benefits to using coconut oil in everyday life. The moment I realized this, my life underwent a small revolution. Now, not a day goes by in my own family when we aren’t using it for a myriad of reasons.
From minor infections to serious diseases, coconut oil cures it all. It does this in a completely delicious way, too! Coconut oil is one dose of “medicine” no one in your family will hesitate to take, especially once they’ve learned about the good it’s doing them.
Throughout this book, I’m going to open your eyes to these benefits. Let’s begin with the basics.
We know about some of the benefits from studying Pacific Islanders, for whom using coconut oil is a way of life. Research shows that the studied islanders were completely devoid of issues such as kidney disease, high cholesterol, and obesity – issues we have come to accept as only being cured by pharmaceuticals. Yet regular consumption of coconut oil has shown that in fact the opposite is true.
It’s easy to eat and digest coconut oil. In fact, ingesting coconut oil can be very cleansing to the colon. Coconut oil also helps to dissolve and remove toxins from the body. This helps those who ingest it to maintain ideal and healthy weights.
It’s no secret that many people in our culture have an overgrowth of yeast in their bodies, which leads to many health issues. Coconut oil is a natural anti-yeast treatment, thanks to some of its natural acids. It can kill fungi and yeasts that cause ringworm, athlete's foot, thrush, and diaper rash. Several people with Candida yeast infections have reported all over the internet how coconut oil has turned the tables on the infection. (Not to mention it’s one of the more affordable treatments on the market.)
In addition to being a powerful yeast-killer, coconut oil is also an antibacterial agent. Whether we’re talking minor maladies or intense infections, none of it stands a chance against the MCFA in coconut oil. Studies have shown that coconut oil can successfully overpower viruses that cause influenza, herpes, measles, hepatitis C, SARS, and AIDS – and more. It also kills bacteria that cause afflictions like ulcers, throat infections, urinary tract infections, gum disease and cavities, pneumonia, and gonorrhea. And did I mention that it also kills tapeworms, lice, giardia, and other parasites?
If this is all sounding too good to be true, just run a quick internet search – and you’ll see that coconut oil really is just about as perfect as it gets. You can eat it raw, or you can use it in cooking. It’ll soften your skin and hair, and it can fight yeast and bacteria better than any antibiotic on the shelf. Even if you take just a few tablespoons a day, it’ll still be one of the best things you can do for your health.
And this is just the beginning of all the things I can teach you. Keep reading, and let’s get into the more advanced aspects of coconut oil.
