Quote: "Of course, those who have been using coconut oil for years never truly believed the lipid hypothesis that said saturated fat was bad for us. More and more evidence is being uncovered to say just the opposite.
Coconuts are revered all over the world for their amazing medical and nutritional properties. They have been used for ages by diverse cultures and races, all of whom respect the magnificent qualities of this tree-growing nut.
Medical Uses for Coconut In traditional medicine coconut is used for a wide number of health problems including kidney stones, nausea, rash, scurvy, infections, wounds, asthma, colds, constipation, cough, ear aches, fevers, jaundice, kidney stones, lice and ulcers, to name a few.
Modern medicine is finally coming alongside traditional medicine and echoing the amazing health benefits of coconut. Published studies in a number of prominent health journals note the benefits of various forms of coconut.
Here are just a few of the amazing benefits of coconut that researchers are uncovering: Kills viruses Kills bacteria Kills fungus and yeast Boosts energy and endurance Improves insulin secretion Kills tapeworms, lice and other parasites Reduces cavities Prevents obesity Softens skin Protects skin from the sun Controls dandruff Prevents wrinkles
Nutritional Value of Coconut Oil Although coconut oil is about 90% saturated fat, it is good for the body. It contains about 50% lauric acid, which helps to prevent high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. The short and medium-chain fatty acids help to regulate thyroid and enzyme function and help with weight reduction. Coconut oil improves metabolism and takes stress off of the pancreas. This tropical wonder improves digestion and increases the absorption of vitamins, amino acids and minerals.
Coconut in Coffee Replacing processed coffee creamers with organic coconut oil is a smart move. Although it may sound strange, the result is actually quite delicious and highly nutritious. The combination of caffeine and saturated fat gives the body a great and lasting energy boost.
The best way to prepare a tropical twisted coffee drink is to brew a high quality organic cup of coffee and place it in a blender. Add in one tablespoon of organic coconut oil, blend and enjoy. The resulting coffee drink is frothy and rich, with a wonderfully smooth taste that is very satisfying. If you like your coffee sweetened, add one teaspoon of coconut crystals.
Adding coconut oil to your coffee is a great way to supercharge and give your body a burst of energy to make it through the day. Not to mention all of the other amazing health benefits of coconut! -The Alternative Daily"

Lee Holmes New recipe: Lamb and Zucchini Soup! On my expedition into gut healing, I’ve been so blessed to discover that eating in a way to maintain or heal gut troubles doesn’t have to be a deprivation. In fact I have enjoyed it. I’ve discovered so many wonderful healing ingredients along the way that when paired together in mighty gut-healing strength, also work to bring gorgeous flavour and enjoyment. That has always been my mission- to target gut troubles effectively whilst also providing a joy-factor. The anti-inflammatory spices turmeric and cinnamon assert themselves beautifully here against the boisterous lamb and sweet zucchini – two winning participants standing shoulder to shoulder to deliver enough protein and fibre to boost immunity and get your digestive system moving. http://www.superchargedfood.com/blog

· Check out new photos from Bologna. Goodbye to the beautiful city:
Saturday, May 7, 2016
from the Po to the Everest Last day at Bologna.
The installation at the DuepuntiLab Gallery was a great success. Italian friends made many beautiful flags that will go to the Everest with the other flags from the Mississippi, Yangtze, Ganga, Amazon, Fraser...I've been blessed with the light, food, friendship, and laughter in Bologna, by Bologna artists: Guy Lydster, Simone, Paoblo, Alessandro, Lucia, Cornelia... Can't wait to come back in September.
· Under the river flags, around the river stone sculptures by Guy Lydster, hundreds of people gathered. The Cultural Minister of Bologna introduced us, and I read the sonnet crown with my two lovely translater Vennessa and Margeritta. Before that gathering, Guy took me to the river where we found a bomb, rusty, almost fossil. after the opening, I was treated with the most delicious tortellini and tortelloni.
“A new study has shown for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit consumption may lower breast cancer risk.(1)”All kinds of people are saying that the entire lemon should be used with nothing wasted. Not only for the obvious health benefits but also for the amazing taste! How?
Simple, take an ORGANIC lemon, wash it, and then put it in the freezer. Once it is frozen you get whatever is necessary to grate or shred the whole lemon without even peeling it first. Then sprinkle it on your salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, or whatever. No holds barred. What you will experience is that whatever you sprinkle it on will take on a taste you may never have experienced before. Why would I do this? Because the lemon peel contains 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself and the peel is the part that is usually wasted. Not only that, but the peel helps to get rid of toxins in the body. But wait, there’s more. Lemon is effective in killing cancer cells because it is allegedly 10,000 stronger than chemotherapy. This has not been revealed because there are people out there that want to make a synthetic, toxic version that willbring them huge profits. Shades of Monsanto.
The good news is that the taste of lemon is pleasant and does not deliver the horrific effects of chemotherapy. What’s bizarre is that people are closely guarding this fact so as to not jeopardize the income to those that profit from other’s illnesses. Another interesting aspect of the lemon is that it has a remarkable effect on cysts and tumors. Some say the lemon is a proven remedy against all types of cancer. It doesn’t end there. It has an anti-microbial effect against bacterial infections and fungi; it is effective against internal parasites and worms; it regulates blood pressure, which is too high; it acts as an anti-depressant; it combats stress and nervous disorders. The source of this information, although not specifically named, is one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world. They further say that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that it destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas and that the compounds of the lemon tree were 10,000 times more effective than the product Adriamycin, which is a drug normally used chemotherapeutically in the world to slow the growth of cancer cells. Even more, this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and does not affect healthy cells. The process is simple: buy an ORGANIC lemon, wash it, freeze it, grate it, and put it on everything you eat.
It’s not rocket science. God puts stuff on the planet to keep the body healthy. The corporations hide this information and create synthetics to treat disease. The synthetic chemical creates other symptoms from its ingestion requiring another drug to combat these symptoms. And so the cycle continues, which equates to enormous profits coming from an overt intention to keep a body ill and suppressing natural healing foods, minerals and modalities, all withheld by the mainstream media to not jeopardize their advertising dollar income, and payoffs to the politicians to not pass laws that will greatly benefit the people. If we do not take responsibility for ourselves and go against the mainstream grain, we will inevitably remain a “trick” our whole life. Aloha!
