Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives and how it can change yours!
A new study just published in the Philippines compared the topical effects of virgin coconut oil and mineral oil on 117 children suffering from atopic dermatitis (AD). The study was published in the International Journal of Dermatology.
In this randomized, double-blind clinical trial, virgin coconut oil was the clear winner: “among pediatric patients with mild to moderate AD, topical application of virgin coconut oil for eight weeks was superior to that of mineral oil based on clinical (SCORAD) and instrumental (TEWL, skin capacitance) assessments.”
No surprises in this study, as the healing properties of coconut oil in treating various skin conditions are quite well known in tropical climates where coconuts grow, and supported by several other studies published in recent years.
As we have recently reported here at Health Impact News, UNICEF is taking advantage of the tragedy in the Philippines to advance their polio mass vaccination program, in spite of the fact that there have been no cases of polio in the Philippines since 1993.
Unfortunately, this is the live oral polio vaccine, which is known to cause polio and paralysis. It is a strong possibility that a similar mass vaccination program in Syria resulted in recent cases of polio showing up there.
The need in the Philippines is still enormous. Helping Traditions is committed to working with local national leaders (as opposed to western aid agencies like UNICEF) in providing relief which includes coconut oil. We might be the only organization in the Philippines currently supplying coconut oil, which is a traditional product with tremendous health benefits.
To help supply coconut oil and other needed supplies, please visit the Helping Traditions website.
A new study published in the Journal of Basic and Clinical Physiology and Pharmacology found that Virgin Coconut Oil can protect the liver from toxic antibiotic drugs. It would be nice to think that this study would encourage virgin coconut oil consumption, especially among those taking toxic drugs, but I doubt that will happen. Rather, look for new drugs in the future trying to mimic what coconut oil does in nature with expensive new patented drugs in the future.
In the meantime, simply stay away from toxic drugs for the sake of your liver, and use virgin coconut oil in its natural form for all its health benefits!
“Oil pulling” is an ancient practice in Asia, but suddenly it is catching on in the United States. It involves swishing an oil around in your mouth (coconut oil is the most common one) for dental and other health benefits.
Mainstream media outlets here in the U.S. are now actually reporting on oil pulling benefits, and even interviewing dentists who are giving positive reviews based on their patients’ experiences.
