Coconut Oil Benefits

It has been all the rage this past year and while I was pregnant, I was not up for trying anything "new" or different, {insert irrational fear of anything bad happening to baby} so I waited until this year to try out this magical and versatile super food:


I LOVE any and all things coconut, so I knew the taste would never be a problem for me.  This kind I bought from Trader Joe's does have a faint coconut flavor; it's detectable when I 'butter' my toast and cook my over-easy egg in it.  My sweet husband politely asked me to never cook his scrambled eggs in it again...

I've heard there are so brands that do not have the "coconut flavor"...which ones??

There is much to be said for this oil to really help out our digestive systems,{especially someone with Crohn's Disease} and I really need to find a better solution to sneaking this into his daily meals!  Any suggestions?

Not only coconut oil great for inside our bodies, but apparently it works wonders on the outside as well!  I have yet to try the hair mask, but I certainly will!  I also heard that prego women are lathering it all over their bellies to keep it nice and moisturized.  I may try this the next time around!

My feet/heels are cracked and dry all of the time; slather it on to smooth out those rough piggies!

I keep trying to sneak it into my daily meals...I've heard from friends they throw it in a smoothie!! I'm also loving it spread on 1/2 of a whole wheat English muffin with my homemade jam.

  20. Africa continent though we have heard a lot about them even when they seem not good, there are still few good ones among them. The world health organization and other health related organization will not accept the fact that some of these herbal medicine from Africa can cure almost every disease outbreaks and viruses. They want us to spend all our fortune buying expensive drugs from them yet our sickness remain. It is high time we let the world know the truth. Africa herbs and roots are good for our body, i have used Dr. Ekuma's herbal medicne and it is good. I was diagnosed of Herpes virus, my mouth and lips was pale, it seem that it was peeling because it is white inside and outside. There were warts inside my mouth also, i was taking acyclovir and doxycycling as my meds but it got worse. i searched a videa about herpes on mouth in youtube and i read all the comments there, they were talking about Dr. Ekuma herbal medicine he gave to them that healed their virus. I contacted his email: dr.ekumaspecialisthome@gmail.com he answered me quickly and promised to help me. At the time i had little money and i even sensed he was not interested with my money but my health. I trusted this man and used his herbal medicine he sent to me through the courier service. He said i was going to be cured in two weeks, behold even before the two weeks, i already saw changes in my body system. i went to the clinic and the doctor conducted a test on me. I was herpes free. I decide to share my story to the general public. Dr Ekuma is real and he's a father to all. His email dr.ekumaspecialisthome@gmail.com
