I was in for a pleasant surprise when I received this beautifully printed book with a colorful cover and found it well edited, printed well with a good collection of photos to drive the points home.
In 10 chapters, a few appendixes and 223 pages, the author succeeds in educating us about all the health benefits of coconut water. Did you know that Coconut water cured the cataract of eyes of a person? Well, I did not know that! Did you know that coconut water is a good way of detoxing without many problems associated with plain water fast and fruit juice fasts?
There are many more uses of tender coconut water and many of the same benefits are obtained from packaged coconut water too. Coconut milk is not to be confused with coconut water.
All in all, this is a highly readable book on the several health benefits of coconut water. I am lucky to be in a country where tender coconuts are sold roadside and also bottled coconut water is available in departmental stores just in case, I need to travel to places where fresh coconuts may not be available.
I am glad to recommend this book for all interested in health of themselves and or their family members, friends etc.
Now, with regard to the book, I must admit that I found most of it extremely boring and thus not easily read, due mostly to its scientific content. Though the basic content of the book is absolutely important.
It turns out that coconut water is a superfood that saves lives. It can be used intravenously, its composition being "remarkably similar" to that of human blood plasma, thus making it more effective than standard IV saline solutions for rehydration.
Dehydration is a serious problem, for example, during cholera epidemics. Oral rehydration with coconut water has proved to be extremely effective, though there is much resistance to its use from the medical profession. Coconut water is superior to all other beverages for rehydration. Water is not enough, since the decisive factor is the electrolyte content of the fluid used, and coconut water contains the necessary electolytes, most importantly, it has a high potassium content
Coconut water is effective against Crohn's disease, strokes, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, edema, cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, etc, etc.Read more ›
It all startet about 3 years ago bying especially many healthy books, that is about eating the right things and doing the best exercice. It came when I discovered that there was something wrong with one of the bones, happely before it broke, and hade made an operation. And then after being to cholesterol measures for me and my wife in february last year, 2009, and for her getting a bad result, more books bying. And about the cholesterol it showed up, in the new bought books, that what I had learned i the 1960's when I was a teenager, and allso read in books bought i Denmark in the 90's was wrong.
But first in this year, 2010, after bying and reading nearly 100 books concerning (most) eathing and exercise, I came to the books about cocos. And then allso about this, cocos, found that it was much misinformations we had got in nearly all of the years since the second world war. Because we had been told about sorting fats in only good and bad and thereby cocos came to be bad. And then it has shown up that this was totally wrong, and instead all concerning cocos is the best we can get.
After readng the 3 mentioned book by Bruce Fife, and our knowings now a day, I think that it is a shame that in most of books concerning healthy eating the cocos is not even mentioned, even though it showed up to be the most healthy. But without doubt it wil change in the future, that is that all concerning cocos will get into the books about healthy eating.
All of the books written by Dr. Bruce Fife are written in good ways and have many good informations, bouth scientifically and about cases.Read more ›
