The Coconut and Its Benefits
The Creator who loves us, super smart and nurturing, made sure that we are all well provided for. Nature has all the nourishment, the answers and the healing products we need for when we are suffering from ill health. We, sons and daughters of the Creator, have strayed so far away from mother nature that we are now fully dependent on greedy fellow humans to supply us with artificial medication treating the symptoms of whatever ails us, never the cause, making sure that we never heal completely.
The good news is that we are in the process of waking up and every day we hear of another fruit or vegetable that has so many benefits for us.
Remember the song ‘Put Line in the Coconut?’ If not, go to you tube and search for ‘Harry Nilsson – Coconut 1971’ and enjoy listening to him. I bet you did not know that the coconut is referred to as the tree of life because of its many healing properties.
In the good old days just over half a century ago, people living in Asia, on islands like the Philippines consumed a diet of rice, vegetables and, yes, you guessed it, an abundance of coconut. For many generations these people considered coconut the cure for all illness and so they ate the meat, drank the milk and used the oil for cooking daily. They turned to coconut to heal coughs, flus, earaches, toothaches, skin infections, constipation and much more.
Contrary to what we’ve been informed about the bad effects of coconut, these people hardly ever heard of diabetes, heart disease or cancer. They all enjoyed abundant good health. Not only that but coconut oil has been shown to protect from viruses, infection, bacteria, thyroid, cancer, heart and brain problems. Coconut beautifies the skin and what more it burns fat! If you suffer from fatigue most probably your thyroid is to blame. Virgin coconut oil can completely turn around your thyroid health and increase your energy.
Perhaps you’ve noticed that easterners have beautiful wrinkle free skin, well now you know their secret, it is coconut oil. Coconut oil is a naturally moisturizing cleaner, serves as an effective sunscreen, heals acne and heals baby’s diaper rash. Coconut oil can also save your brain by helping the body produce ketones -an alternative energy source for your brain! You need not be terrified of cancer any more, because we know now that it is actually possible to starve cancer cells and this pro-active defense leaves the body more able to fight the disease than being battered with chemo therapy and yes, coconut is nature’s best healing super food.
Unfortunately, western style diets eventually made their way to the islands and of course everyone wanted to be modern and so they forgot the good old ways. New fads from America about foods and diets took over and soon mass-produced foods replaced old traditional foods and the coconut. Whole fresh nutritious natural foods were replaced by over-processed, refined foods laden with chemicals. Healthy sources of fats were replaced by harmful vegetable oils. Now these islanders suffer from the same health problems as many Americans do such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity.
Cold pressed virgin coconut oil is probably best to find in a health food store near you. Good luck and enjoy.
