    Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm tree.  The uses for coconut oil has sky rocketed in the past years and many studies have been done proving to be extremely beneficial to your health.  If your not currently using coconut oil, you may want to think go out to your local health food store and get some.

    There is so much hype about Coconut Oil benefits at the moment.  I remember reading a book about coconut oil when I was suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so I started taking it daily and did actually start to feel better.  However when I started my major healing through my raw food diet I kept my fat intake much lower so forgot all about coconut oil.

    I’ve recently stumbled upon another book, The Coconut Oil Miracle by Bruce Fife which was very convincing, so I decided it was high time to experiment with this ‘miracle’ food.

    To give you a bit of background, coconuts have been used as a major food source  for thousands of years  by millions of people in Asia, Pacific Islands, Africa and Central America. Before the introduction of modern foods, many of these people depended almost entirely on coconut to sustain life.  They didn’t suffer from heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes and many other degenerative diseases until they abandoned their traditional diets.

The healing miracles of the coconut have long been recognized in those cultures where it is grown.  Only recently have these benefits started to become known to the rest of the world.

    My Conclusion about coconut Oil BenefitsI did see noticeable benefits from using coconut oil that couldn’t be attributed to other things, especially my 2 year rash clearing up after applying coconut oil to it.  There is no denying my skin is a lot softer too.  But the other benefits are hard to pinpoint directly to coconut oil.  However I do believe it’s a great food and I am going to continue to use it.  I’m still undecided as to how much fat I should be having in my diet but anytime I would be using another oil I’m going to try and use coconut oil instead and not go overboard with the use of it as I also consume a lot of coconut in other forms as I make my own coconut milk and add coconut to my smoothies, so I do think coconut oil is extremely beneficial but so is the entire coconut!
