Coconuts have been enjoyed the world over for centuries, this is why women from various cultures like Bali, India, Peru, Jamaica and various parts of Africa use it for almost everything — from lip balm and skin moisturiser to cooking oil, and as a remedy for stomach complaints.
Coconuts are also hypoallergenic, and they contain antibacterial, antiviral and anti-parasitic healing properties. But now researchers have discovered what traditional cultures have known for centuries: Coconut is a powerful anti-fungal treatment — especially against common yeast infections, like Candida albicans.
Al Sears, MD, physician and researcher reports, “Not only is coconut oil a powerful natural healer, it has none of the harmful side effects that come with prescription drugs.”
He, therefore, prescribes ingesting it, and also in cooking. He prescribes, “I recommend you add a few tablespoons of this oil to your existing diet to naturally manage any yeast infections. Look for virgin, unrefined coconut oil. I recommend adding two to three tablespoons of coconut oil to your daily diet.”
He concludes: “You can also use it as a topical treatment. Clean and dry the affected area thoroughly. Then apply a thin layer of virgin coconut oil to the infected skin. Repeat this two to three times a day until the yeast infection is gone.”
Some other uses of Coconut you might want to add to your beauty regimen; it helps prevent obesity by speeding up your metabolism, provide a quick energy boost, reduce sugar cravings, help prevent diabetes by improving insulin efficiency, promote healthy thyroid function, improve symptoms and inflammatory conditions associated with digestive and bowel disorders, support your immune system, break up blood clots, moisturizes and protects skin, and repairs dry damaged hair.
