Coconut milk health effects

Common Questions and Answers about Coconut milk health effects


Avatar f tn Everything works differently for everyone. I could see how coconut milk could reduce palpitations if there cuased by low magnesium and potassium.
Avatar m tn Those in the MCFA group (coconut fat) had a 60 percent reduction in body fat stored compared to the other diets. Another added bonus of consuming organic coconut oil (and coconut cream or milk) is that it tends to make us feel fuller for longer. Studies indicate that MCFAs help increase feelings of fullness and lead to a reduction in calorie intake when compared to the same amount of calories from other fats.
Avatar n tn I only have a receding hair line and have absolutely no bangs by this point. This started when I was nineteen (I'm 26 now). Perhaps coconut oil also has restorative effects? If so, perhaps it could help my beard, which has oddly been thinning the past year or so (it's always been thick up until that point). I'm sure I'm going to get a reply along the lines of "go see a dermatologist," but I have no money, and a dermatologist doesn't always know all the answers.
1772456 tn?1314126696 Not for hepatitis, but for overall health. I was asking whether anyone has researched whether coconut oil will have negative effect on hepatitis B.
Avatar m tn I'm not a fan of soy milk either. Long list of potential imbalances and hormonal effects. I'm also not a big fan of drinking milk anyway (I prefer getting my dairy through yogurt, kefir, cheese, etc) and for drinking I prefer water (for cold) and tea or espresso (for hot). And I enjoy my one glass of red wine for dinner. I also eat full fat dairy, use cream and butter and ghee in my food, opting always for grass fed free range, to get very high quality macro and micronutrients.
Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots? I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.
Avatar f tn I was just curious to see if any of you have already wrapped up your 12 weeks of Incivek. If so, did your side effects get any better? Since I have to treat 48 weeks I have been counting down the days until the Incivek is over and hoping that things will get a little easier once this part is over. Thanks!
Avatar m tn The tulsi medicinal uses begins with the ability of the leaves to cure many kinds of fever.Tender Tulsi leaves boiled in water act as a preventive against malaria and dengue fever.In case of acute fever, a decoction of the leaves boiled with cardamom powder in half a litre of water mixed with sugar and milk brings down the temperature. Tulsi is also a good germicidal agent and a disinfectant that protects the human body from all types of viral infections. 2.
Avatar f tn Having a little bit of fat in every meal- nuts in breakfast, avocado on a sandwich (in place of mayo), and coconut milk or meat in the occasional curry or snack really helps make sure I'm getting enough to get me through the day. Also - I have never in my life lost weight until recently. I was obese at 12. I have a thyroid problem that was only acknowledged and treated recently. In the month after I started taking my thyroid meds I lost 10 lbs. I strongly suggest you get your thyroid tested.
Avatar m tn Apple cider vinegar has helped me, I also do not drink regualr milk, I go with almond , coconut or rice milk, all non dairy.
Avatar f tn Hi, Yes I agree in part , i too use other oils ,the cocnut oil i use is virgin or unrefined as with all oils in moderation. Never tried the ice cream spoon thngy, funny. Breast milk please.. I wanted to add some info on cocnut oil just for the heck of it. D Coconut oil is the healthiest oil on earth". Once wrongly accused of increasing cholesterol levels, coconut oil is now actually being used by doctors in the treatment of a variety of disorders.
2020005 tn?1476662562 My daughter is almost 4 weeks old and EBF, I've noticed at night she becomes fussy and will latch on and unlatch the whole time I'm trying to BF, from either side. I'm going through the "deflated" stage where it doesn't feel like there's any milk, so I decided to pump and couldn't even get an oz, not even half an oz, so no wonder why she's fussy. Unless I go a few hours without her eating or pumping, it gets like this, almost no breast milk at all..
Avatar n tn Many of you will not believe the facts on these pages and will continue to avoid coconut oil and coconut milk out of health concerns. Despite the proven benefits. We invite you to investigate further.
Avatar f tn cow's milk (hard to find) or goat's milk if tolerated. Replace ALL cooking oils with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (One of the top functional foods-check it out at the coconut research center website) Limited fruit and pure fruit juices. Quality Probiotics and Prebiotics. Some tea and or coffee O.K. Deep conscious breathing. Look into Pranayama Breathing. Will become a habitual event (subconscious) after practicing extensively.
Avatar m tn Things Killing Your Gut U.S. scientists discovered that gut microorganisms not only influence immune cell function, but actually support the production of immune cells that form the first line of defense against infection. About 80 percent of the neurotransmitter serotonin is produced in the gastrointestinal tract—not the brain.
Avatar m tn These two fatty acids and their effects on health are being studied, but for now, we don't have any evidence suggesting that coconut oil is better for you than other saturated fats. The benefits of coconut oil in the diet, if any, are likely to be minimal, and until we have more and better evidence about coconut oil's effect of metabolism and potential role in promoting weight loss, I do not recommend using it.

1580318 tn?1492443745 I'm not sure if I can drink lactose free milk. But I've come to the realization I can't even have ice cream, cheese etc.... Blech! This is gonna be a long 2 weeks!
1050938 tn?1311557178 I clearly have a number of medical problems, and whether they stem from the longstanding effects of having had hypothyroidism without knowing it for a few years too long, or if there's another issue in the works, I don't know. My right ankle bone has been painful and inflamed for no reason at all for the last few weeks, and my insomnia is still going strong.
3119934 tn?1342041444 I have eliminated refined sugar in exchange I use agave syrup, and I stopped using dairy exchanged for coconut milk in my coffee, switch to fresh brewed decaf iced tea, changed to grass fed meats and natural grown veggies not pesticides or processed foods, I added amino acid supplement, malic acid with magnesium supplement and have felt a whole lot better so far these past 3 weeks. Last night not only did I have the energy to set up the patio furniture and firepit by myself!
20804558 tn?1517783610 Neither does low or non fat plain yogurt. While flavored yogurts do add sugar, milk is milk. When I managed health food stores, we used to sell real milk alongside the organic versions of the milk you buy in the grocery store. This means it is pasteurized but not homogenized, which is how people drank the small amounts of milk people drank before the 20th century when the US gov't partnered with the biggest dairy farm owners to convince people it was good for them to drink milk.
Avatar f tn If you go to a health food store you just won't find any coconut oil in dental products, and the technology probably was the problem with coconut oil vs. sesame oil -- it's a lot easier to press a sesame seed.
Avatar m tn This is a medium chain fatty acid also called octanoic acid, that is found naturally in coconut oil, palm oil, butter fat as well as in human breast milk. It is known to have anti-fungal as well as some anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. One of the difficulties with caprylic / octanoic acid is that, being a medium chain fatty acid, it is very easily digested and absorbed by the body.
15355684 tn?1440039390 The key to success with this program is to replace the reduced carb and protein intake with healthy fats such as coconut oil, avocado, butter, olive oil and fats from healthy pastured animals. Coconut oil is particularly beneficial for brain health and has actually been shown to be helpful in senile dementia. You can protect your brain by giving it healthful fats from whole foods, such as organic eggs from pastured hens, whole raw milk from pastured cows, raw nuts, avocados, and olive oil.
1800611 tn?1315856590 It is lauric acid from human breast milk that is also present in coconut oil! Coconut oil is anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, antiprozoic, anti-microbial and causes no inflammation when used in cooking -unlike all other cooking oils. It can also be a substitute for glucose, when glucose uptake is inhibited, supplying fuel for your neurons, as it is one of the few elements that can cross the blood-brain barrier.
Avatar m tn Natural yogurt works too, because it has the good bacteria that keeps the fungus at bay. Coconut milk also contains antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. What is the difference between the normal cider vinegar and the one with "mother" in it? I have not come across this product before. Where do you get it from? Cider vinegar mixed with honey (and water, I nearly chocked without the water) is said to be good for arthritic problems. I felt no difference.
Avatar n tn The only way I like coconut oil in my coffee is to make bulletproof coffee, which is coffee, butter and coconut oil, blended until it's frothy. Sometimes I add a bit of milk. Again, any time you don't want your dish to taste like coconut, add a dash of salt... It did take some time to acquire a taste for it and learn how to incorporate it into my meals. I did a lot of research on how to do that... now I'm not afraid to experiment with it.
Avatar m tn Nowadays a lot of things give you an allergy warning if milk is an ingredient, but not all. Switch to Coconut Milk. I use So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk. I put it in cereal, smoothies, etc. You can even get it in ice cream. I was like you. I drank a ton of milk, had cheese on everything, etc. Then, I was told that I had celiac and lactose allergy. On the drop of a dime I cut all that **** out of my diet. To be honest, everyone thinks milk is good for you. ITS NOT.
Avatar m tn Try butter, full cream milk, cheese, fatty beef and coconut oil. Most of the products contains high cholesterol too. I'm sure they kill bacteria too.
