Re: Coconut for healing... update

 

Welcome Fall

 

 

 

 

 

Coconut oil has a humongous amout of uses, head to toe, inside and out!

 

For acne break outs, sores, etc., it has antibacterial properties. The main reason for oil pulling, among others.

 

Bobbi Brown recently said on TV that she spreads it on her toast every morning with breakfast. I put a teaspoon in my coffee daily and use it on my body and around the house for a large variety of things. Cooking, obviously !

 

"Google"  it and learn of its many properties and uses.

 

Happy fall !  Woman Happy

Last night I woke up middle of the night with a stomach, now burning again. And the back of my throat sore. These are two on-going ailments for me which disappear while on antibiotics only to return.

I got up and took a Nexium AND downed a teaspoon of coconut oil. (reluctant)

 

this is morning the stomach was back to normal and the sore throat was gone!

SIGH... I will run this by my MD tomorrow so I will probably incur his wrath. image.jpg

@baker, thanks for the coconut oil toothpaste recipe.

 

I have a hard time finding a tooth cleaning product that does not irritate my gums.  Not sure I will be able to tolerate the peppermint.

@ Montana

I think you could omit the peppermint and still come out on top with this, no?
