Great Coconut Treatments

Palm trees are one of the most ancient and fascinating plants on the planet. Dating back to the time of dinosaurs, palm trees still thrive and provide us with some very powerful medicine. The coconut palm, date palm, saw palmetto, and the oil palm are just four examples of palms that produce substances used in healing. Among these four, the coconut palm produces a fruit which contains mild, meat, and oil; the most powerful part of the three being the coconut oil.
For centuries this tropical fruit has been collected and used for food and medicinal purposes. Really a cocktail of different oils; its benefits can be attributed to the presence or lauric acid , capric acid, in addition to its antimicrobial, antioxidants, antifungal, antibacterial, and soothing properties.

The health benefits of coconut oil includes hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength… just to name a few.
As one of the best natural sources of nutrition for hair, coconut oil not only helps in healthy growth and a shiny complexion, but when used as a regular massage for the head it can also ensure that the scalp is free of dandruff, lice, and lice eggs, even if your scalp is dry.
Furthermore, coconut oil is an effective moisturizer on all types of skins, including dry skin, making its benefits comparable to that of mineral oil – without the chance of having adverse side effects. With its antioxidant properties, coconut oil also helps in preventing premature aging and degenerative diseases; therefore, it helps with the delaying of wrinkles and sagging skin. Due to its ability to treat various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections it is no wonder that coconut oil forms the basic ingredient of various body and skin care products such as soaps, lotions, creams, et cetera.
Taking all of this into account it should not be a surprise that the coconut fruit and its oil are making and appearance in treatment rooms around the world.
