NH365 081: Coconut oil – What you need to know about its healing properties
(NaturalHealth365) In an article I produced on NaturalHealth365, I talked about the confusion surrounding coconut oil and the conflicting research focused on the impact of saturated fats on human health. Today, we hope to dispel the myths and to offer an empowering message about your health.
Over the past 50 years, a majority of healthcare providers have warned us that saturated fats, like those found inside coconut oil, are ‘bad for us.’ But, we have several questions for you – listed below – related to this so-called ‘truth about fat.’

Coconut oil and heart disease: What’s really going on here?
Question #1: Do we really believe that Americans are consuming too much coconut oil and that’s why we have so many people suffering with heart disease?
In addition, why do some people with higher than acceptable levels of cholesterol and fat in their diet never experience a heart attack and others with very low fat diets or low cholesterol levels get really sick?
Something just doesn’t add up here.
Today, on the NaturalHealth365 Podcast, we’ll talk about how coconut oil can actually improve the quality of your health. Make no mistake about it, healthcare providers (and the general public) – around the world – are waking up to the reality that all fats are NOT created equal and how ‘good fats’ are actually essential for optimal health.
