Raw and Naked… Coconut is an Antimicrobial, Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory and Analgesic… truly one of nature’s super-food miracles!
There are at least 17,000 studies describing the medicinal and nutritional effects of Coconut and Coconut oil on health. Over and over again various physicians, researchers, biologist, nutritionist and even pharmaceutical companies have all come to the same conclusion… Coconut is no foe, it can help so many aspects of our health!
Why and how can Coconut have so many medicinal properties? The short answer is that every part of the Coconut has it’s own unique healing gifts. Today, I will be focused on how Coconut Oil was found to be composed predominantly of a Healthy family of fats called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) and Keytones.
It is amazing that although Coconut Oil has a long history of nutritional and medicinal uses for thousands of years, Western Medicine continues to use pharmaceutical drugs and over the counter drugs that do not have the same proven medicinal results. Over the last 80 years, there are Zero documented injuries from using Coconut Oil, however, the estimated deaths/injuries as a result of pharmaceuticals is astronomical.
Coconut Oil can specifically help address various health issues such as:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Stomach Bacteria
- Candida Overgrowth
- Poor Thyroid
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Failure to Thrive
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
What is it about Coconut Oil that gives it such healing properties? Upon consumption of MCTs, the MCTs digest very rapidly and begin breaking down immediately. As a result of MCTs already being completely separated into individual fatty acids, they do not need pancreatic digestive enzymes or bile for digestion, thus relieving stress on the digestive system.
Due to Coconut Oils/MCTs already being in the form of fatty acids when they enter the small intestine, they are immediately absorbed and sent directly to the liver. This allows our liver to automatically metabolize the MCTs into energy. Some of the MCTs are used up for energy, the remaining MCTs are used by the brain and other bodily tissue. Researchers have discovered that MCTs have the ability to heal various disease-causing bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses.
MCTs can be used topically and internally as antimicrobial agents to prevent and ward off infectious diseases. Many common disease-causing microbes as well as potentially deadly ones like HIV and drug-resistant bacteria are very vulnerable to MCTs. In addition, Coconut Oil can help address all of the diseases I listed above.

In the mean time, Coconut Oil, Coconut Water, Coconut Meat and Coconut Milk are bringing relief to people around the world.
There are thousands of people who report that Coconut has changed their lives for the better. So many pharmaceutical medications may show promising results in laboratory settings, yet in real life, these meds can prove dangerous and do more harm than good. Coconut oil has proven it’s nutritional & healing properties in real life!

If going to a party, I use the shelled coconuts as my serving dishes… I didn’t take a picture but it is a fabulous display piece and catches everyone’s eye 🙂
I serve it with my favorite gluten free chips and watch all the people devour it! 🙂 You will get all sorts of questions like what kind of fish is this… it’s Deelicious… and also, how do you cut open a Coconut?!?
There are many ways to do it, but I use the bottom edge of a Meat Cleaver while striking the coconut in a circular pattern. I am a small framed woman, if I can do it… you can do it! It’s really easy once you get the hang of it! 🙂
Looking forward to hearing how much you enjoyed this Coconut Ceviche Appetizer…
