There have been numerous studies on lauric acid for various health supporting factors. Did you know that virgin coconut oil is 50 percent or more lauric acid? So whatever healthy attributes lauric acid contains so does coconut oil, and more.
And more will be explained later in this article. For now we’ll focus on coconut oil’s major component, lauric acid, and a recent animal study with dramatic results discovered for reducing hypertension (high blood pressure) and oxidative stress.

Natural medicine is an amazing field, full of inspiring stories and an ever-accumulating body of scientific research to support its increasingly popular view of health.
In fact, at GreenMedInfo.com we specialize in dredging up from the National Library of Medicine’s 23-million citation deep, seemingly oceanic database, highly promising clinical pearls indicating not only the value of natural substances in disease prevention and treatment, but sometimes their clear superiority versus drugs. What’s not to like about that?
Beets have long been known as a healthy source of nutrients, but – now, more than ever – scientific evidence continues to support beets as a natural cure for cancer. Labeled “beet root chemotherapy” by some health experts, actual scientific research reveals the astounding cases of remission in cancer patients who were given high concentrations of beet root.
This root vegetable, best known for its red color, has been enjoyed in various forms for generations as a healthy source of iron, as well as potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, magnesium, iodine and a number of trace minerals. But, the combination of certain elements found only in specific combinations and concentrations within the beet give this veggie its cancer fighting and disease preventing power.
There are many ways to naturally cure cancer. The NaturalHealth365 INNER CIRCLE offers over 300 audio/video programs (and counting!) plus over 200 integrative healthcare providers talking about natural ways to detoxify the body and boost immune function. (more…)
What is wrong with The Candida Diet?
What is wrong with the popular Candida Diet? And what is a safer, healthier solution to eliminate candida overgrowth?
You are in the right place and asking the right questions, because I have some answers for you!
Sugar is healthy? What about Candida?
Those were the common questions I received on my popular post Sugar: Your Body Needs It. “But I have candida issues,” folks commented and emailed me, “I can’t eat raw honey, fruits and maple syrup.” The popular Candida Diet takes many forms, such as the diet outlined in The Body Ecology book or The Candida Diet website. These anti-candida protocols all eliminate natural sugars like honey and fruit as well as starchy vegetables like winter squash and carrots.
I’m here to tell you that you can and should eat natural sugars, even if you have candida issues. It sounds like a scary concept. Believe me, I was also hesitant to start incorporating healthy sugars back into my diet after my short and extraordinarily unpleasant stint on The Candida Diet. I am grateful that I escaped harmful candida myths, because now I’m healing my body and addressing the root cause of my candida overgrowth.
Intention is everything. What you experience daily in your life–how you act, what you speak and how you feel affects every human being around you. Once you realize the domino effect created by shining your light on others, it becomes very contagious.
1) Seek Your Truth
The truth will set you free but first it will piss you off. No matter how discouraging or how many people oppose your truth, never stop seeking it. Both truth and wisdom are available only to those who have the courage to question what they have been taught.
2) Believe Anything Is Possible
All things are possible regardless of perceived limitations. Don’t be bound by limits of others or those you impose on yourself. At the fundamental level of reality, all is dictated by our beliefs and expectations. We are pure energy, and there is infinite potential in that energy.
3) Give Service To Others
Cultivate a habit of serving others — sharing your money, knowledge, service, wisdom, care, love. Find a person who serves others and you will find a happy person. In giving, you always receive more. Giving has many unexpected benefits from attracting more happiness into your life, to inspiring others, and changing the lives of those you touch. In the end the whole world is made into a better place. It is a universal law. You only get back what you put in.
Nearly every month, a new diet book pops up on the shelves and becomes a bestseller. If you take a quick look through them, you’ll realize the main ideas are practically the same. While there may be different foods lists, they’re all based on principles of deprivation, external rules, and focus on weight loss.
Yes, I’m sure you could lose weight on any popular diet out there. Yet, I’m taking a stand against diets because of the negative side effects – physical and mental – that ultimately leaves you frustrated, overwhelmed, and blaming yourself.
Getting trapped in the diet mindset is a terrifying place to be. You don’t even need to be following a “diet” plan per se, but over time, all the rules from past diets, magazines, or friends stay set in your head. This pseudo-dieting becomes your life where you feel tremendous shame from indulging in your favorite “guilty pleasures,” eating more than 1200 calories, or even eating when you’re not hungry.
The only way to get out of the diet mindset is to break down the rules, find peace with food, and give yourself permission to eat what you want without worrying about weight gain or letting it affect your worth as a person.
