It was Bruce Fife who popularized the health and medical uses of coconut oil. Now in Coconut Cures: How To Prevent And Treat Common Health Problems With Coconut, Fife goes beyond coconut oil to reveal and explore the health benefits of the entire coconut including the coconut's meat, milk, and water. Coconut Cures describes why coconut water can be used and useful as an IV solution for sick patients because it has a chemical composition similar to human plasma and therefore injected directly into the blood stream while be a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Coconut meat can help balance blood sugar and control diabetes, protect against cancer, ease painful colitis and the discomforts of irritable bowel syndrome, help with weight loss, expel intestinal parasites, improve digestive function, aid in the elimination of hemorrhoids and varicose veins. More than a simple theoretical discussion of coconut benefits, Coconut Cures provides the reader with step-by-step instructions on how to use coconut to treat an A to Z list of many common health problems. Coconut Cures is a welcome and enthusiastically recommended addition to alternative health and medicine reference collections and reading lists.

This title is no exageration. We are talking cures. If you are new to the many health benefits of using coconut oil, this is the first book to read. It will get you excited about gaining more energy, losing weight, improving your skin, killing yeast in your gut, boosting your thyroid function, and on and on. All I can say is wow. I have been taking 2 tablespoons of VCO per day for a month, and I can say it really works. I have read many other books on this topic, but this is my favorite. As I was reading I had to keep jumping up to tell my husband each new impressive statistic.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love to read books that teach me about the goodness in the foods that are available to us; this book certainly brought me joy. Discovering the amazing health benefits of coconut meat, milk, water and oil just amazed me. Here are just a few things that the coconut can do for you; prevent heart disease, dissolve kidney stones, enhance the immune system and protect against cancer. Wow! What an eye opener.

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.

I have often been confused about fats and oils, what's good or bad and this confusion has led me to eliminate almost all oils from my diet, except fish oil. However upon reading Dr. Fife's "Coconut Cures: Preventing and Treating Common Health Problems with Coconut" book I've been truly educated and enlightened... no more fear or hype.

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.

Format: Paperback
When you stop and think about how much coconut and especially coconut oil has been vilified by all those pompous health gurus out there thumping their chests with an arrogance that merely shows their ignorance, it just makes you shake your head. Why? Because not only is coconut one of the most incredible superfoods in the entire world, it is also a very tasty one that sadly has been given a bad rap because of the fat content. But Dr. Bruce Fife brilliantly lays out the growing proof that coconut is actually a miracle supplement in Coconut Cures.

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.
