Today’s Natural Remedy: Coconut Oil

Did you know a tsp of coconut oil will help balance blood sugar levels? God is so Awesome!

He truly gave us everything we need to live here on this beautiful place we call earth. His creation of the coconut tree is a perfect example of that. Say you were stranded on an island, (a nice place to be stranded) you could live off the coconut trees and its life-bearing fruit. The health benefits of coconut oil include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases, weight loss, digestion, infections, liver issues, and more. Coconut oil can help maintain normal blood sugar levels and acts as an antioxidant, antifungal, and antibacterial agents in the body. When used for massages, coconut oil is removes stress from the body and is very soothing. It is also a healthy alternative for hair and skin care. Cooking with pure unrefined virgin Coconut oil helps with proper digestion and strengthens the immune system.

1 tsp of Coconut oil (w/a meal) is also good for counteracting and calming down cleansing reactions, diabetes, and asthma attacks.

    Q: Yes coconut oil maybe natural but I go thru 3-4 jars per week, 1-1/2 a jar a day, not only is it making me broke out I do not think all that saturated fat is good for me. I know I lack a lot of protein and other vitamins in my diet. Could this lack of essential nutrition cause this weird craving? I don't know if it is the massive loss of blood due to the fibroids.

    A:

    I think you know the answer for yourself. Therefore, stop eating the coconut oil. Take some vitamins and minerals and see if this helps. Sounds like PICA, a nutritional deficiency which causes cravings. Blood loss most certainly will cause loss of nutrients.

    Q: I read that you do not recommend coconut oil, because of its thickness. Do you believe that coconut butter is healthy for human consumption? Thank you all the knowledge you generously share.

    A:

    Actually, coconut oil is healthier for human consumption than coconut butter. Both are derived from a natural food source - the coconut, and thus may be consumed. Now as far as what the most healthiest oil, I don't think we can say it's coconut oil.

    Q: I see also that you recommend a complete diet with these programs. I am guessing its a vegan diet right? I wanted to ask something on that is coconut milk and coconut oils ok for that? I personally had a very hard time trying to eat that many vegetables and many ph balance vegans seem to think fruits aren?t good either. I eat that many vegetables one it tears me up the next day and two I just cant consume enough calories that way. I can try and make up for it by eating things like almonds but I eat to many almonds I get the same problem the next day. Now coconut milk (unsweetened) and a digestive enzyme works for me for picking up extra calories.... but I hear very conflicting information about coconut and its saturated fat content. Is it ok to use daily as a part of the diet for cleansing? And your oxy-drops are those the same as the drop for ph balancing water?? Or is it something different? I am wanting to start lifting weights as I need to put on some muscle and I?m wondering if its something that would be beneficial in combating muscle soreness by increased oxygen in the body.

    A:

    The diet we recommend is vegan-based, and RAW FOODS. Fresh fruits, vegetables, raw nuts and seeds are ideal.

    Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil are excellent products to have in your diet. The healthy fats will keep you fuller.

    Oxy-Drops can help balance your electrolytes that need to be replenished after a workout in order to keep your body performing efficiently.

    Q: I have been experiencing very trying health issues for many years (over 25 years). The trouble began when my gall bladder was removed 26 years ago. I had mood swings, lack of energy, and severe diarrhea. Approximately 13 years ago I had an additional surgery for an umbilical hernia. Due to pre-op tests, my physician diagnosed me with thyroid disease and placed me on synthroid. This medication dramatically improved the digestive issues I had experienced for many years. I had very loose bowels when menstruating and when I was ill. I am overweight and have dealt with weight issues all my life. Three years ago I had a scare where I thought I experienced a heart attack. I spent three days in the hospital and learned of many health risks. My triglycerides were extremely high along with my sugar being borderline. I have been tested for diabetes on a number of occasions in my life but never show to be. There are numerous cases of diabetes in my family. My mother and one sister are insulin dependent and one other sister is on some form of pill medication for diabetes. At that time, I gave up sugar and began a regime at the gym. The have not eaten any sweets other than what I get in a little ketchup occasionally or some other kind of sauce that may contain some sugar. I have gone to the gym with minimal results in losing weight. I had a total hysterectomy six weeks ago. My regular GP has been on vacation and I've been dealing with one of her associates. This dr. sent me in for glucose tolerance and she has since diagnosed me as Type II Diabetic. She put me on a medication called "Metformin" and has me taking a 500 mg pill twice daily. I have only been on this medication for three days. I have been very careful to eat only what they say I can. I am experiencing the same issues as before with the diarrhea. Last night I was up all night with this and it is like water coming out of me. I am unable to find a physician who understands that I want to lose the weight, but cannot when I'm constantly dehydrated and feeling lethargic. When I have this constant problem, I am not able to do what I need to do for my overall health. Sorry to be so wordy but I wanted to explain the full extent of what I am experiencing. My friend told me to get on this website and explain my issues. He feels that you may be able to guide me in the direction of a natural product or products that can help me to have normal bowel movements and therefore begin doing the physical exercise that is needed for me to reduce my chances of becoming an insulin dependent diabetic.

    Q: YOU ARE PROBABLY WELL AWARE RIGHTNOW THAT I'M 45 AND I HAVE FIBROIDS. FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS I HAVE HAD A COCONUT OIL CRAVING. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MAYBE LACKING WHY I CRAVE COCONUT OIL. I LIKE TO FREEZE IT AND THEN CRUNCH ON IT IN ITS SOLID STATE. I KNOW IT SOUNDS STRANGE BUT I STARTED THIS HABIT ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO. I DO NOT KNOW IF IT IS THE MASSIVE BLOOD LOSS DUE TO FIBROIDS, THAT HAS RESULTED IN THIS WEIRD CRAVING. I JUST DONT TAKE ONE TBSP, I TAKE ALOT MORE AND I CANT, AFFORD IT AND I KNOW THAT THIS HABIT IS NOT GOOD FOR ME.

    A:

    I don't know the exact reasons why you are craving frozen coconut oil but clearly you are lacking something and your Body Intelligence instructed you to eat frozen coconut oil. The oil is perhaps serving as a vehicle for the fibroid debris so as to pull what debris it can out of your body. Coconut oil is natural so I don't see anything wrong with your newfound custom. As long as you're fine with it, keep doing it.

    Q: For starters I have been doing a lot of reading and coming into contact with folks who speak about live foods and how it can cure certain aliments. I have been dealing with type two diabetes for 7 years now. To top that off, I have been recently diagnosed with Type two herpes. What the hell? The internet has a lot of information on it, most of it conflicts with the info from your site. I would like to know what the relationship is between this site and Dr. Sebi's site which I have found to be in accord? I would like to know what live and electric foods are and where I can purchase them? I have recently decided to pursue a career as an FBI agent. I am completing my degree this December, after which I can apply for a position. I fear that the Diabetes is the only health concern that could keep me from reaching this goal. I fear that type two herpes could if it has not done so already cost me more than I am willing to give. I need and desire help with these two issues to return my life and body to a healthy state. Can you folks assist me with these questions? Can you provide me with affordable real solutions? I am listening because I can not do this alone.

    A:

    Dherbs.Com has no relationship with Dr. Sebi and his Fig Tree brand of herbs.

    A:

    There is healing for you, Beloved! For diabetes, perform the Pancreas Kit and Regimen. For Hepatitis C, perform the FULL BODY DETOX. For high blood pressure, the FULL BODY DETOX will work for this as well. For asthma, perform the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Chronic renal disease?

Bathe in sea salt (add 1 box) every day. Dietary and lifestyle change is the key!!!!

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.

    Q: On may 10th 2003, I was attacked while on my job and I suffered injuries to the lumbar and to the cervical spine. I was given pain management therapy (cortizone) in massive doses; about 18+ injections over a 3-week period in October of the same year. By Thanksgiving, 2003, I was admitted into hospital with blood sugar levels of 800+! While thyroid issues have exhibited in the family, there is no history of diabetes on either the maternal or paternal sides of my family, niether is there any sign of the disease in any of my other 11 siblings, the youngest of which is 40+. At one point, the symptoms of the diabetes dissapeared for 2 years, and reappeared in January of 2007. I am not overweight, nor do I have eccesive body fat. I work out every day with weights, and have the appearence of a body builder, although not eccesive. I walk about 3-5 miles every day and have consistantly low blood pressure levels, much to the suprise of my doctors. I have and excellent diet; mostly consisting of fresh vegetables and skinless broiled chicken and fish. Some beef with the marble trimmed. I have a normal stool consisting of solid waste, and the regularity is consistant. I have long suggested that my pancreatic duct(s) are blocked and after reading some of the literature on your website, I am more sure of it. Although the levels lately are starting to stabilize again, I am taking this synthetic insulin, about 3-4 units in the mornings, and before dinner, and about 10-16 units of the overnite insulin. Being well muscled, and not overweight therefore not needing to lose weight, and being totally active, What are my options in assisting me to unblock the pancreatic ducts of what I believe to be the cortizone, as I have spoken to others with the same situation, so that my pancreas may better function? I have also read about some of the other products that may be helpful. I look forward to your response, as I have heard your commercial on KJLH radio. Peace and Blessings

    A:

    I suggest you consider performing our PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN . Also, read our articles on â€DIABETES†and â€THYROID GLAND†(see "Articles') on our site. We have numerous articles on our site. I'll be on Jacquie Stevens show L.A. Speaks Out on Saturday @ 8:00 a.m. on KJLH

    Q: Hi D, I began the FULL BODY DETOX this AM - Sun.13th. In the past I have experienced high blood pressure (BP) in about the 130/88-95 range. I have personally chosen not to take prescription meds for this but instead to lower it naturally. I have been taking Ultimate Omega, CoQ-10 (100mg), Magnesium, Super Calcium (1200mg)and Kyolic (6x day). I thought to monitor my BP while on this cleanse. I took my first reading @ 6:50 (164/95) pulse 66. Took second reading @ 9:45 (175/101) p- 66. By taking the herbs will this cause my BP to rise? what might be the cause of this and what recommondations might you be able to share with me. Also, I have not been taking my above pills while cleansing - not sure if I was to or stick strictly to the cleanse.

    A:

    Your BP is self-regulating itself so numbers will fluctuate. Don't panic or worry! Trust in your body's natural healing process! With healing it's Ordo Ab Chao: order (stability) out of chaos! And by all means strictly stick to the cleanse! You''ll be fine!

    Q: For about 2.5 months I have been on the path of taking care of my temple (body). I am more dedicated than I have been in the past. One I was diagnose with so-called diabetes (type II) took the pills (made me sicker than I was) and now my doctor has stressed taking insulin injections. Which I am totally against it. Since I have been taking the Pancreas formula, changed my diet (no meats, juicing, fresh fruits, green veggies (organic))& vigorous exercise (cardio), my A1c has gone from 10.9 to 8.6(should be 6.5) in the span of 2mths. Glucose 137 (should be 70-125) has been high as 238 and higher. However, my doctor insist that my diabetes is not controlled, and will not get better because the pancreas function in type2 diabetics declines as time goes on. Therefore, insulin injection will deter kidney failure, heart attack, body amputations, and blindness. I know our emotions help with the conditions of the disease body. What can I do to continue to lower blood sugars to a healthy level? Lower trigylcerides and cholesterol(lower in the last two months)? My blood pressure is 122/80.

    A:

    Performing the Pancreas kit and regimen as much and as often as you can and you'll get your desired results.

    Great maintenance formulas include CIRCUL-AID, PANCREAS FORMULA, SUGAR BUSTER, and BIO-INSULIN.
