Coconut oil, from the research I have done, is by far the best of the best. I
was pleasantly surprised to learn that the benefits of coconut oil include hair
care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss,
increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney
problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, cancer, dental
care, and bone strength.
When I read all this I thought I was reading about organic sulfur crystals. So,
delving further, I learned that coconut oil is sulfur based. When seeing bottles
of coconut oil in stores that were cool from air-conditioning, I noticed that
the oil was not liquid but solid. Upon further examination, the solid oil looked
like tiny crystals.
But, being an oil and not something that would be consumed frequently in more
than minute quantities, coconut oil is extremely beneficial over a long period
of time as opposed to the immediate benefits of ingesting organic sulfur
crystals on a regular daily basis.
That being said, the following will put into perspective why coconut oil should
be added to one’s diet regimen.
In the past, there was strong propaganda by the corn and soy oil industries
against coconut oil because it was hurting their business and their profits.
Their allegations were that due to coconut oil’s high saturated fat content it
was harmful to one’s health. Yet, this oil has been used extensively in tropical
countries like the Philippines, India (it is used extensively in the Ayuevedic
system), Thailand, etc. for generations with no adverse side effects.
Coconut oil was also very popular in the western countries like the U.S. and
Canada but they succumbed to the propaganda and cut back on its use only until
the early 2000s when the propaganda was questioned and seriously looked into.
What they discovered brought back coconut oils’ popularity.
The benefits of coconut oil is due to the presence of lauric, capric, and
caprylic acids in it and the antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, and
antibacterial properties inherent within the oil. Our bodies convert the lauric
acid into monolaurin, which fights the viruses and bacteria associated with
herpes, flu, HIV, listeria, and giardia.
Despite coconut oil being more than 90 percent saturated fat, most of which are
medium chain triglycerides, the lauric acid is the chief contributor to its
assimilation. It also is rich in linoleic acid, oleic acid, poly-phenols, which
are responsible for its fragrance and taste, vitamin E, vitamin K, iron, and
For hair, coconut oil promotes healthy growth, keeps hair shiny, reduces protein
loss, eliminates dandruff when used in head massage, provides essential proteins
for nourishing damaged hair, is an excellent conditioner, helps in the re-growth
of damaged hair, and helps in keeping the hair free from ukus (Hawaiian for lice
and bugs). It is applied topically after bathing.
For skin, it is a great moisturizer, prevents skin dryness, flaking, delays
wrinkles and sagging, helps in treating psoriasis, eczema, and other skin
infections. As such, coconut oil is the foundation of body care products like
soaps, lotions, creams, etc.
For heart disease, despite its high saturated fat content, the lauric acid helps
in preventing heart problems including high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Unlike other vegetable oils, the saturated fats in coconut oil are not harmful
and does not increase LDL (bad cholesterol) levels) and in reducing injuries in
the arteries is effective in preventing atherosclerosis.
For weight loss, the short and medium-chain fatty acids help if taking off
excessive weight. It is easily digested, promotes healthy functioning of the
thyroid gland, increases body metabolism by reducing stress on the pancreas, and
burns more energy, which equates to weight loss.
For digestion, its internal use is as a cooking oil. It improves the digestive
system, prevents various digestive related problems including irritable bowel
syndrome, the saturated fats, with their anti-microbial properties, help in
dealing with bacteria, fungi, and parasites that cause indigestion, and it helps
in the absorption of other nutrients like vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
For the immune system, the anti-microbial fats, lauric, capric, and caprylic
acids, through their antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties,
strengthen the immune system. The lauric acid, which is converted into
monolaurin helps in dealing with viruses and bacteria that cause herpes, the
flu, HIV, and giardia.
For healing infections, coconut oil protects the infected part of the body by
forming a protective covering preventing the entry from dust, air, fungi,
bacteria, and virus. For bruises, it speeds up the healing process by repairing
the damaged tissue.
According to the Coconut Research Center, coconut oil kills viruses that cause
the flu, measles, hepatitis, herpes, SARS, etc., and kills the bacteria that
cause ulcers, throat infections, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, gonorrhea,
Candida, ringworm, athlete’s foot, thrush, diaper rash, etc. For bruises and
infections it is used externally.
But wait, there’s more. Coconut oil reduces the work load on the liver and
prevents the accumulation of fat; it helps dissolve kidney stones; it is useful
in treating pancreatitis; helps with mental fatigue by massaging the head with
it; it is effective in utilizing blood sugar thereby preventing and treating
diabetes; because it facilitates the body’s absorption of calcium it strengthens
the teeth and stops decay.
Because coconut oil contains lesser calories than other oils, its fat is easily
converted into energy, does not lead to an accumulation of fat in the heart and
arteries, boosts energy and endurance, and enhances athletic performance.
If the oil is in its solid form and you want to use it topically, just melt it
down to its liquid form. You can do this by putting some in a small bowel and
putting it in the sun, or by putting the bottle in warm water, or heating some
in a container over a low heat. Under no circumstances use a microwave! A
microwave will change
the molecular composition, as it does with food, and makes it into something
that the body has no idea of what it is consuming. Is this euphemistically
saying to throw out your microwave? YES!! If you don’t really care about your
health, keep it.
Oh yeah, the reason it’s so great for cooking is because of its high heat
tolerance. Because of this, and unlike other vegetable oils, it will not become
rancid from high heat.
If you reflect upon coconut oil’s incredible health benefits, it’s like reading
the benefits of the organic sulfur crystals. Using both on a daily basis will
change your health forever. Imagine!
I have been doing a radio show in Honolulu since 1981 called “Health Talk”. To
listen to the show please go to www.kwai1080am.com on your computer at 8am
Hawaii time. FYI, 8am Hawaii time is 11am on the West coast and 2pm on the East

In 2007, I was “forced” to get a masters degree in Nutrition to stop all the
doctors from calling in asking what my credentials were. Besides that, they
never liked it when I asked them what their credentials were that would enable
them to treat an illness without drugs or surgery.
If you go to www.healthtalkhawaii.com and click on Podcasts, there are years of
shows there as well as hundreds of health related articles.
I am an activist. I am vehemently opposed to GMOs, vaccines, processed foods,
MSG, aspartame, fluoridation, and everything else that the “pimps” (big pHarma,
Monsanto, and the large food companies), and the “hookers” (the doctors, the
government agencies, the Public Health officials, and the mainstream media)
thrust upon us, the “tricks”.
At 75, I am in 3 softball leagues, racewalk, do stand-up paddling, hike, swim,
do weights and cardio, and teach women’s self-defense classes based upon 20
years of Wing Chun training. I have been a vegetarian since 1975 and a vegan
since 1990, have no illnesses and take no meds.
After being vaccinated with the DTP vaccine as a child, I developed asthma,
which plagued me until 2008 when I learned about and started taking the organic
sulfur crystals. My asthma was reversed in 3 days and has not come back.
So far, 22 cases of autism that we know about have been reversed, as has cancer,
Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, asthma, osteoarthritis, joint pain, gingivitis, and
erectile dysfunction. The sulfur has increased sexual activity, eliminated
toxins, heavy metals, radiation, and parasites. It speeds up athletic recovery
time, increases blood circulation, reduces inflammation, increases resistance to
the “flu”, reduces wrinkles, allergies, PMS, monthly period pain, migraines,
nausea, and way more, because the oxygen that the sulfur releases floods and
heals the cells in the body.
The sulfur, as proven by the University of Southampton in England, enables the
body to produce vitamin B12 and the essential amino acids.
