This all natural remedy can help a very wide variety of ailments. VRO coconut oil is no match when it comes to any ailment from dry skin to high blood pressure. I first read about it in a health food book and got it for my Dad because he has high blood pressure that he treats with Lasix which has some very discomforting side effects. Here is just a small part of the list from the Lasix site
Adverse reactions are categorized below by organ system and listed by decreasing severity.
Gastrointestinal System Reactions
- hepatic encephalopathy in patients with hepatocellular insufficiency
- jaundice (intrahepatic cholestatic jaundice)
- oral and gastric irritation
So naturally I wanted to give my Dad some kind of alternative. No updates yet on how much it has helped him, but there is info all over about how much it helps many people. Now when it comes to other uses, the possibilities are endless. You can put it on your toast as a alternative to butter, use it as a lotion(your skin soaks it up and it leaves a non greasy wonderful smell on your skin), rub it on your chest to help asthma, it has antibacterial qualities, and it is great for cooking in the kitchen.
