Personal Care : Coconut Oil, Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar For Your Health?
For years, people who lived in islands (or Florida, where I grew up) where the coconut trees decorated the landscape, the meat and milk of the coconut and its oil were considered a “cure” for almost all ailments. In The Bahamas there is a very popular song that tells the story of an islander who was told by his doctor that all he needed to cure his illness was some coconut water mixed with a “spirit”. Following the advice of his physician, his spirit was rejuvenated so much so that he could “climb the tree like an old monkey”.
“Coconut oil in particular has been shown to protect you from viruses, bacteria, infection, cancer, thyroid, brain and heart problems… plus beautifies your skin – and even burns fat!”
– Jake Carney, Founder, The Alternative Daily
Nowadays everybody is discovering the secret of this delicious tropical fruit and how it contributes to good health. Growing up in South Florida, with a coconut tree in my backyard, there was no need to try to convince me about the blessings of the coconut. However, it took some convincing for me to understand that honey and apple cider vinegar also offered similar health benefits. In our house, my late mother always used sugar and she only bought white vinegar.
What??!! Coconut Oil, Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar are all good for you? Score!!!
