Angelina Jollie Eats Coconut Oil and Stays Thin

Does eating coconut oil make you fat?

The New Zealand Internet news site reveals that Angelina Jolie, famed for her BMI and lifestyle, eats coconut oil by the spoonful. Yet she seems to stay thin.

Dr Fife, an expert on the benefits of coconut oil, says when he recommends coconut oil to be included in the diet of an obese person seeking naturopathic medical advice, he doesn’t dwell on the weight loss benefits of the oil. He says returning to a normal BMI (Body Mass Index) is just one of the benefits of including coconut oil in your diet.

Here is the link to the Stuff article.

Here is the book that Dr Fife wrote on the topic.

Hair Care with Pre-Shampoo Oil Treatment

We often get questions about uses for coconut oil

Hair care is a use for coconut oil.
I came across these two articles about natural hair care, written by a women by the writing name Heather R. She is writing for a national Sunday newspaper, The Standard, in Zimbabwe.

I can’t find the first article in this series. But here are two articles by Heather R, a Black lady in Zimbabwe.

Where is Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe is just above South Africa, in the cone part of the African continent. Over the years it’s been called Southern Rhodesia, and Rhodesia as well. Coconuts grow along the coast line in the African continent, too.

Anyway, about hair care.
Members of the Smith family have used coconut oil for hair care over the years. There is no doubt it is worthwhile. We discovered the power of coconut oil, originally through Dr Mercola, and Dr Fife.

Have other non-Pacific Ocean cultures traditionally used coconut oil for their hair?

Kerala State of India, again, a southern area of a large continent, runs along the lower coastal area of the Indian continent. There Indians love to use coconut oil for hair care. But a lot of that oil is now RBD. That means it is not virgin, or first press, and it has been treated with high heat, and chemicals to get the most out of the coconut oil. We do not recommend the use of such oil, even for hair care.

Oil is messy! How do you clean oiled things like towels etc?

It is wise to wrap up hair being treated with coconut oil. But what about an oily towel? Who wants the job of fixing that? Well there is a product that does a wonderful job of it, and you can buy it at Countdown / Foodtown, The product is Sodium Carbonate.

Sodium Carbonate loves oily things

Greenwoods (laundry crystals) are a 100% biodegradable product called “Soft and Safe Washing Soda Crystals”. They are made in New Zealand, and created with Sodium Carbonate in water. If you hair is not looking like it’s glorious potential, and you’re intending to have a shower, you might consider vigorously rubbing in some coconut oil. Any of our virgin coconut oil offerings will work fine for the job. Afterwards, add some Greenwoods granules to your wash, to remove the oil.

So in summary, let’s say, the Coconut Oil Shop Team wish you happy hair days!
Bye for now, from the Coconut Oil Shop Team

The book, “The Coconut Oil Miracle”, by Dr Bruce Fife

Here is an excerpt from the book.
Coconut oil has been used throughout Asia and the Pacific for thousands of years as both a food and a medicine.

Even today it holds a highly respected position in the Ayurvedic medicine of India. Only recently has modern medical research confirmed the many health benefits traditionally attributed to this remarkable oil.

Once mistakenly thought to be bad because of its saturated fat content, coconut oil is now known to contain a unique form of saturated fat that actually helps prevent heart disease, stroke, and hardening of the arteries. The saturated fat in coconut oil is unlike the fat found in meat or other vegetable fats. It is identical to a special group of fats found in human breast milk which have been shown to improve digestion, strengthen the immune system, and protect against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections.

These fats, derived from coconut oil, are now routinely used in hospital IV formulations and commercial baby formulas. They’re also used in sports drinks to boost energy and enhance athletic performance.

Commercial Break:
(Please note that we have actual stock of this book here so you don’t have to wait for 3-4 weeks for it to arrive like with some online book shops.)
Excerpt continutes:
Some of the benefits of coconut oil:

Allergies: It’s the season for allergies in New Zealand

Allergies: It’s the season for allergies in New Zealand – updated July 2014

Steam some coconut oil into nostrils to protect against allergies

Melt some coconut oil into hot water, and steam some into your nose, to line your nose with oil, and protect it from allergies – the article says.

Welcome to the Coconut Oil Wholesale Page

If someone in your home suffers from allergies, you’ll want to spend time on this site looking at our resources, including the membership area.We’ve created the following membership options:

I can safely say Oil Pulling relieves nose allergy and common cold nose blockages

This article was first posted in October 2011, and since then I’ve experienced October in 2012, and 2013 as well. I’ve been using Oil Pulling more regularly since 2011, and it really unblocks your nose, especially in the morning. To find out more, you should consider getting a copy of our free Consumer Guide: Coconut Oil Basics. Alternatively, you could buy the book, Oil Pulling, by Dr Bruce Fife.

We also have a short Oil Pulling guide here (for those logged into Camp Coconut).

Daadi’s diary – from India

I found this facinating article, includes information on allergies, and talks about coconut oil. I haven’t tried to find the Indian goosberries in NZ, but I thought you’d be interested in the article anyway.

Here is the article.

Kind regards,

The Coconut Oil Team.

New Shopping Cart System

As many of you are already aware, we were having major trouble with Paymex, our secure online payment processor. We have today made a complete switch to PayPal. At the same time, we reorganised the Order page, and installed a new shopping cart system. A few of you may remember, but we started off with just one product. Now that we have quite a few products for sale, an increasing number of customers were asking us to help choose a product to buy because the shop was too confusing. So hopefully you will find it a little easier to find your way around our online shop now. We would love to hear what you think. We are always open to suggestions. As with all newly installed things, we may have some technical glitches while we settle into this new system. Please bear with us. Our desire is to make ordering coconut oil as easy as possible for you. 😀
