When a patient is diagnosed with colon cancer the usual course of treatment is radiation therapy, surgery, or chemo, but all of these treatments have severe side-effects. But people still choose them because they don’t know any better.
However, recent studies suggest that there’s a much better, safer, natural treatment which yields effective results without the adverse side-effects. We all know how health beneficial coconut oil is and it’s no wonder many consider it to be among the top 10 superfoods. Its main ingredient, lauric acid, which is also found in breast milk, has powerful anti-cancer properties. In fact, it is a medium-chain fatty acid that boosts the immune system and has powerful antimicrobial properties.
Regular consumption of coconut oil reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, keeps your blood sugar under control, eliminates candida infections and dangerous fungi, stabilizes the insulin levels and helps in maintaining a healthy weight.
The American Society for Nutrition says that the findings of these clinical studies suggest that coconut oil has medium-chain fatty acids which “may be useful in treating and preventing diseases such as osteoporosis, virus-related diseases (mononucleosis, hepatitis C, herpes, etc.), gallbladder disease, Crohn’s disease and cancer.”
Moreover, it’s known that these medium chain fatty acids can help in the treatment of diseases like multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and drug-resistant epilepsy.
There was a case where a doctor, Dr. Mary Newport, decided to start giving her husband a tablespoon of coconut oil on a daily basis as a treatment for the early symptoms of Alzheimer’s and he noticed major improvement in less than 60 days.
She pointed out, “Ketone bodies may help the brain recover after a loss of oxygen in newborns through adults, may help the heart recover after an acute attack, and may shrink cancerous tumors.”
There are plenty of other studies which support the claims that coconut oil can improve life quality and significantly reduce the side-effects of chemo in cancer patients.
