CANDIDA AND COCONUT OIL

Candida albicans is a fungus (also referred to as a yeast) that causes a host of undesirable effects in the body. Candida overgrowth is a dramatically under-diagnosed condition that endangers the health of millions of people, many of whom have no idea of their condition.

Leon Chaitow, a renowned alternative health practitioner and author, says, “Candida is possibly the least understood, most widespread cause of continuing ill health currently in our midst.”

Everyone has some Candida in his or her system. Ordinarily, digestive bacteria controls Candida levels. However, if your immune system is compromised, an overabundance of Candida can occur. The technical term for this condition is candidiasis–and its prevalence has climbed rapidly over the last few decades. Experts speculate that this increase stems from our modern diet of processed foods, diabetes, obesity, and excessive use of antibiotics.

 The Caprylic acid (a medium-chain triglyceride) is an anti-fungal agent found naturally in coconuts.
Numerous studies have confirmed the efficacy of caprylic acid against candida..For more than 40 years, scientists have known about the power of caprylic acid for natural Candida treatment.

 Some practitioners recommend coconut oil as a food source of capyrlic acid. However, caprylic acid is also available in capsule form for those who need higher doses or who find capsules more convenient.

We recommend Coconut Oil, internally and also externally, to be used for the skin and hair. For hair, use Coconut oil once a week, apply and leave on for 40 minutes or more, before rinsing off.

Your Hair needs the Proper Nutrients



Our eating habits directly influence the health of our hair. A deficiency of vitamin F (essential fatty acids), for example, causes a disruption in the keratin process of the scalp by stimulating the appearance of dandruff. Calcium deficiency causes hair to turn brittle, and lack of vitamin H, part B complex, alters the hair growth cycle by increasing the duration of the natural fall of our strands. These are just some examples of how the hair depends on sufficient amounts of nutrients to keep moisture and cohesion between its cells, giving them a healthy look.

"What is true of the body also applies to the hair strands. As the capillary structures are sensitive to changes in food and diets low in essential elements, proper nutrition is essential to the recovery of hair problems," states hair transplant surgeon Adriano Almeida, director of the Brazilian Society of Hair.According to Texas Collaborative, a
bout 91% of the hair is protein made up of amino acid chains.  Furthermore, the hair is chemically composed of the following:

45.2% carbon
27.9% oxygen 
6.6% hydrogen
15.1% nitrogen 
5.2% sulphur 

 Any factor that reduces the levels of these nutrients in the body will result in changes in the strands. The hair can undergo various changes in terms of structure, color, consistency or appearance, in addition to possible fall-out, culminating in the destruction of the hair follicle.

But where to get these essential nutrients needed for healthy hair?


Strong, shiny and silky hair depends on vitamins and minerals found in many foods. Your diet should be rich in protein (meat, fish, eggs, yogurt), vegetables and fruits, oleaginous seeds (almonds, walnuts, cashews), legumes (beans, peas, lentils) and whole grains (oats, flax, rye).

More important than ingesting large amounts of a particular food, such as zinc and copper, is to seek a synergy of all the vitamins and minerals.  Your diet should be as varied as possible, by rotating between different foods, so as to ensure that you are consuming sufficient amounts of all nutrients.


Fruits and vegetables are must-haves for everyone, but sometimes, just relying on these ingredients is still not enough to obtain the required daily amount of vitamins for our body. In this case, your doctor may prescribe a pill or capsule that has in its formula a variety of vitamins.

Vitamins also work to strengthen hair, especially when hair has already started to fall out. But they are recommended only if there is specific nutritional deficiency. In women, the most common deficiency is iron. In humans, zinc and copper are the most common deficiencies.  

Oral supplements rich in amino acids, zinc, omega 3, cysteine ​​and biotin, help to recover the vitality of the hair. They were developed to compensate for the lack of nutrients. They arose to fight the molecules that degenerate the healthy cells of the body, replenishing possible deficiencies that cause wrinkles, weak nails, sagging, hair loss, and other aesthetic problems.

Hair Loss & Alopecia Areata

Understanding Hair Loss and Alopecia Areata

The average human scalp contains abaut 100,000 hair strands an roughly abaout 20 to 100 hairs are lost  it from every day. Each individual hair survives for an average of 4-5 years and during this period it grows about half an inch per month after wich the hair falls out and is replaced by a new one in 6-8months. Hair loss become visible especially when the hair that fall out are not replaced adequately with new ones during the expected time period. Hair loss may be patchy (alopecia areata) or diffuse(all over the scalp) in nature.

HOMEOPATHY X TRADITIONAL MEDICINE

Rather than being opposites, homeopathy and traditional medicine are complementary.  Working together, there can be fantastic results.  Homeopathy is great for prevention and balancing the system, teaching the immune system to respond in a certain way.  Meanwhile, traditional medicine is great for when the system fails and the body does not have the strength to react.  The downside is that people can become dependent on the medication and there can be side effects.

You do not have to choose one or the other; at certain times, you may choose to use traditional medicine, while at other times, you might decide on homeopathy.  Depending on the disease or the health issue, the method of treatment will vary.

      Modern medicine has to assimilate Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Holistic Medicine , they bring a better understand of the human being as a whole. They also bring more resources to heal and minimized the suffering, besides working in a preventive way. Medicine in the last 30 years advanced a lot in diagnoses with sophisticate technology and in a new no invasive surgery technology, but less in new approach to restore health.

       Traditional medicine is base in chemistry and mechanic point of view of the human being. Traditional medicine has great value and save many lives. We need to not forget that big pharmaceutics companies look for profits and their own business.

  .      Homeopathy has more than 200 years of existence, and has a scientific method of use. All remedies have studies and experiment and a health person. It is very well established the indication of each remedy, the doses and what to expect from the treatment. When the medication does not work as supposed to, we know that was a doctor fault, which does not choose the right remedy. The fundamental law of homeopathy is the law of similar that always works.

     Homeopathy understanding the human being in all aspects, physically and emotionally. The objective of homeopathy is to restore balance.  We know that we are a whole, interconnection between mental, emotions, and the body is total.

 Homeopathic Physicians treat patients as a whole individual and by taking physical, mental and emotional symptoms as well as family medical history, diet and life style and finding the root and cause of the problem prescribes appropriate remedy or remedies for the patient. Homeopathy treats patients not diseases that's why most of the time besides the main illness other symptoms in the patient will be cleared and the patient will feel good as a whole and their level of energy increases.


Dr Shah writes an insightful article at the International News. When comparing homeopathy to conventional medicines, he says:
“The more a homeopathic medicine is used the more useful it becomes. Its finer details are brought out with the passage of time and the homeopathic physicians use it with even greater confidence and precision.
“In contrast there is a long list of allopathic medicines withdrawn, discarded or banned after they were initially introduced with very high claims. These all medicines were introduced by the “medical science” after great “medical research”! Well! what sort of science it is that changes its stance after every six months?! You may call it business or you may call it the commercialization of consumer products but of course not science.”


      Health professional usually do not have a reliable font of information about Homeopathy.  Homeopathy  is not teach in side of the Medical schools and Universities in most countries, especially in the USA. In others countries the grow of Homeopathy  are impressive like the report above:

    Homeopathy India , It is not just the fact that the size of the present domestic homeopathy market has been placed around Rs 27,580,000,000 (395 million Euro), but that with a 30 per cent annual increase, it will reach Rs. 46,000,000,000 (659 million Euro) in a few years. These figures place India second to France in the ranking of the homeopathy market.
Other facts and figures make the role of homeopathy very impressive. With a hundred million people in the country totally committed to homeopathy, it is expected that the number will go over 160 million in three years. Right now, there are 500,000 registered homeopaths and every year there are 20,000 more being added. There are 185 homeopathic colleges in the country, and 11,000 homeopathic hospital beds.
According to D.S Rawat, the Secretary General in ASSOCHAM, people turn to allopathy (= conventional Western mainstream medicine) only in emergency situations. But in chronic illnesses like skin and hair disease, respiratory problems, obesity, diabetes, homeopathy, although said to be slow, offers sure treatment.
The main factors that make homeopathy popular are the affordability of the treatment and the personalized interaction doctors have with their patients, which the World Health Organization also acknowledges.

You may call it business or you may call it the commercialization of consumer products but of course not science.”


The British Medical Journal has published a letter which examines the motives and methods of noisy detractors who dismiss homeopathy in spite of current research showing clear evidence in its favor.
The piece is well worth reading and concludes with:
“…to say homeopathy is nothing but placebo requires turning a blind eye to a large amount of data which, though not completely conclusive, certainly suggests otherwise. It is clear that those who issue boilerplate criticisms of homeopathy have not bothered to consider the entirety of the data. Intelligent people and true scientists should be embarrassed by this and most ‘discussions’ taking place about homeopathy in the British medical community – they are an affront to scientific principles of rationality and objectivity .”


The objective of these article is to highlight the importance of Homeopathy and Modern Medicine, be free to ask questions or give your opinion.
