Ailments can be treated with natural methods to resolve physical and emotional issues in many cases rather than with medication. These are alternatives that can be used for different kinds of treatments and conditions.

Some of the alternatives to prescriptions can be exercise, dance, yoga, massage, essential oils, etc.

Coconut oil has excellent properties and it does not turn into fat in the body unlike other oils like soy or corn. Coconut oil contains an easy fuel that the body burns without converting it into fat called medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). This fuel (MCT) is more easily absorbed and converted to energy quicker, while most other cooking oils and fats contain long-chain triglycerides (LCT) which are usually stored as fat.

For centuries large amounts of coconut have been produced and consumed as food and oil every day in the tropics. The amount of oil consumed in their diet does not increase their weight but on the contrary helps them to be healthy and lean. When they utilize the other widely used common oils they gain weight and other conditions that result from obesity and are challenges in modern everyday life.

Animals fed with coconut oil become lean. This has also been a known fact for people who are in the animal feed business for a long time. When domestic animals are given common vegetable oils, they increase their weight and at the same time produce fatty meat.

Coconut oil is one of the best oils you can directly use on your skin and hair, healing and restoring skin to a younger appearance. It has also been known to give temporary relief to skin problems like rashes, help with people who suffer from yeast infections in the skin, recover slow thyroids by reviving production of extra thyroid hormones, as well as many other skin problems.

Coconut oil softens and smooths your skin, has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from free severe damage and is an excellent massage oil too. It also helps the body absorb other nutrients like Vitamin E more effectively. It is considered one of the best oils for your health.
