I would be pleased to elaborate on the benefits I have noticed from coconut oil.
This may be a long post though.
Energy - one of the first things I noticed was the energy I felt after I ate it.
Weight loss - I only lost a few pounds, but I am at a pretty healthy weight
anyway. I know others who have lost much more using coconut oil.
Healthy skin - Of course, eating coconut oil lubricates you from the inside out,
I also use coconut oil as a all over moisterizer and on my face. I have notice
my skin is fresher looking with less fine lines. After I put it on my face it
feels moist and tighter (but not a dry tight)
I also use coconut oil as a sun screen...it gives you a beautiful tan and
prevents burns and leaves your skin with a healthy glow.
Also, I should tell you that I convinced my sister to try the coconut oil. As
she had a growth on her forehead about 1 cm wide. Coconut oil is antifungal.
Anyway, she did not apply it to her skin like I told her to, but she ate about 2
tblspns per day. Within 1 week (no lie) the growth which she had for 5 years was
completely gone. She cancelled her appointment to the dermatologist that she had
made. Now she eats it and applies it to her skin daily and loves it. She is
nearly 60 years old and says her skin has improved tremendously since starting
the coconut oil.
Heals dry cracked heels or any dry skin condition I or friends have had.
I've used coconut oil to heal a burn on my finger really quickly.
One more thing on coconut oil and the skin is my younger friend who has a baby
tried it as a diaper cream for diaper rash. I told her to use coconut oil and
Oil or oregano and the diaper rash cleared up over night.
Hair conditioner - I use coconut oil from time to time to give my hair a deep
conditioning...it give great results.
Healthy gums and teeth - I eat about 3 tblspns per day and I have noticed my
gums and teeth are much healthier. If I feel a tender gum from brushing too hard
or something I'll put coconut oil on the area and it is all better by the next
Also, I should mention that I give my dogs about a tablespoon a day and about 4
months after I started to do this, I noticed my dog's teeth were getting much
whiter and their gums looked so healthy. They did have some build up prior to
the coconut oil and that is now all gone except for a little on a couple of
their far back molars, but I can see more and more white on those molars coming
through all the time. I don't brush their teeth or do anything else for their
teeth other than give them the coconut oil. Plus, their fur is very soft and
Also, I have a cat that is 14.5 years old now and he decided that he also likes
coconut oil. As you can imagine in 14 year old cat, his teeth were not the best.
After about 2 months eating coconut oil (which he absolutely loves and will bug
me to no end until I give it to him in the morning) I was looking at his teeth
and they look amazing...white and pink healthy gums. Plus his energy has
definitely increased...he is much more mobile and alert and playful.
Infections - I have used coconut oil to treat my daughters whenever they come
down with anything. Of course, I also use alkalizing things to help them out as
well, but I know coconut oil helps a lot in this area. For myself and my
husband, it is extremely rare that we even feel off because of the Moreless
protocol and the coconut oil, but it does help with the girls.
Cuts - I have used coconut oil on cuts with great success and quick healing.
Coconut oil is one of those things that you instinctively know is good for you
when you try it. Between the Moreless protocol and coconut oil, I feel pretty
healthy and have lots of energy. I can't think of anything else right now,
although I'm sure there is more, but I hope that helps someone here.
Also here is a link to a coconut oil site that I frequent from time to
time...it's very informative:
