This book is truely informative on many subjects of health. I subscribe to several monthy health pubs and read a lot on health and this book is one of the very best I've read. I've tried several healing applications mentioned in the book and they simply work.
If you want to expand your knowledge and understanding of the human body and learn how coconut oil can truly improve your health at a fraction of the cost of expensive, side-effect laden drugs then this book will be a must have in your library and in your life. It's amazing to see how negative media has destroyed a very healthy product and how we have bought into the hype.
Besides the healthy, positive benefits of coconut oil, it makes wonderful popcorn that is healthy.
The book starts out with explaining about the coconut and giving you some examples how those on islands use it. Very interesting! After that, the author goes into the healing aspects of the fruit, from the meat to the oil. He does this in a very concise and easy to understand mannen; giving you examples of what they can do for you, how to use them and also gives testimonies on how this fruit has helped others.
I really enjoyed this book and intend to give what I have learned a try. I believe there are a lot of natural foods out there that we just don't know how good they are for us, now I believe coconut is one of them. I recommend this book for anyone
that is interested in being a healthier person. I believe you will find many health reasons to give coconuts a try. A read well worth your time.
P.S. only use virgin coconut oil, no processed rubbish!!!
Now, when you use a strong word like "cures" in the title of a book, then you had better have the evidence to back it up. Dr. Fife does just that as he delves into the "healing power of coconut" for such ailments as heart disease, kidney stones, erratic blood sugar disorders and diabetes, warts, insect bites, acne, cancer, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, slow metabolism, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, and aging with plenty of references that come straight from the scientific journals. Additionally, you'll read seemingly unbelievable stories of real people who have benefited from coconut and coconut derivative consumption.
My favorite chapter because of its creativity is Chapter 4 entitled "Coconut Oil On Trial." Dr. Fife takes on the most common complaints about coconut oil and puts them on trial with opening arguments, testimony from expert witnesses, and closing arguments from the "Prosecution" and "Defense." Such controversial topics as saturated fats and cholesterol, atherosclerosis, high blood lipids, and heart disease risk are taken on and treated fairly. The verdict from the judge whether coconut oil is guilty or not guilty? Well, you're gonna have to read page 98 of Coconut Cures to find out.Read more ›
