Healing Miracle of Coconut Oil
The era of olive oil being a healing miracle has long gone. Coconut oil is now the new healing miracle. In fact, this tropical oil has done miraclous things in the past hundreds of years. It only became a villain to our health in recent years due to the false campaigns created by its competitors. Let's see what this oil from coconut can do for you.
Modern medical science has found that coconut oil helps to relieve symptoms associated with Crohn's disease, prostate enlargement, pancreatitis, ulcerative colitis, stomach ulcers, cystic fibrosis, chronic inflammation, constipation, psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.
But that's not what make coconut oil a healing miracle. They also discover that the tropical oil protects you against heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, cancers, osteoporosis, skin infections, dental decay and diabetes. What's even more miraculous is that some doctors are using it in their treatments against AIDS. And the results are encouraging.
It all thanks to the plentiful medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in the oil itself that makes it a healing miracle.
MCFAs are exceptionally powerful antimicrobials. They're able to kill viruses such as influenza (aka flu), hepatitis C, herpes, measles, HIV and bacteria such as pneumonia, urinary tract infection, and fungi and yeast such as Candida, ringworm, and thrush, which may otherwise cause serious complications (if not treated immediately) and trigger various diseases, conditions and infections mentioned earlier.
Additionally, the same MCFAs in coconut oil are capable of burning fat too besides strengthening your health against modern diseases and maladies. How so?
They get converted directly to energy as soon as your body digests them. The energy then goes to boost your cellular metabolism as well as improving your thyroid, the gland that controls your metabolism. When your metabolism increases, calories burn as a result. This also includes calories stored in your fat cells.
That's why more and more overweight people are using coconut oil in their weight loss regimen to help them burn off the excess body fat. Their health improves at the same time as their weight falls.
Having an active metabolism also enables your injuries to heal and repair faster. This reduces your risk to persistent inflammation that can trigger more complications.
Healing Miracle on Skin
When used topically, coconut oil soothes and heals the irritated or affected areas on your skin caused by skin diseases such as psoriasis, hemorrhoids, warts and athlete's foot. It's also an effective healing salve against blisters and sunburns.
Again, it's the MCFAs in the oil at work. They accelerate the metabolic rate and hence the healing process of damaged tissues.
Speaking of topical application, it does what other moisturizing creams or lotions can't do. While those commercial creams and lotions temporarily moisturize the surface of your dry skin, coconut oil penetrates deep into the layers under your skin to prevent free radical formation (because it's an effective antioxidant by itself), remove dead layers and encourage growth of new, healthier tissue (because it boosts metabolism for faster tissue healing).
Up to this point, aren't you amazed by the healing miracle of coconut oil? Don't take my word for it. Go get a small bottle for a test-drive and use it every day over the course of 2 weeks. The results you get will speak for themselves. And make sure you get virgin coconut oil for both optimal health and skin care benefits.
