Making Coconut Oil At Home
This week my wife and I made coconut oil at home. I gladly share our knowledge with you.
YHWH God, our Creator and king, when he made us, made us for his glory Isaiah 43:7. And he made provisions for our health. Do you realise that by the time on the sixth day of creation when God created man, that all that was needed for the sustenance of the newly created beings (male and female) were already provided and in place? Read about the creation story in Genesis Chapter one. Coconut oil has proven to be the best oil for cooking purposes as it does not change into bad cholesterol when high temperatures are reached when heat is applied to it. The moral of this point is, that God’s last day people who keep his commandments and the faith of Jesus, will incur the wrath of the dragon (Rev 12:9 ,17) but endures it and overcomes all without sinning against YHWH, Rev 14:12, 12:11. God wishes that we prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper, 3 John 2. As health reformers we ought to be like coconut oil, and do not bend or change under the high temperatures/fires of the devil’s wrath (persecution). Health reform is not only good but very important to the saints and remnant of God’s last day church who will go into the high ways all across the globe to preach the everlasting gospel.
Some benefits of Coconut oil.
Heart diseases: There is a misconception spread among many people that coconut oil is not good for heart health. This is because it contains a large quantity of saturated fats. In reality, it is beneficial for the heart. It contains about 50% lauric acid, which helps in actively preventing various heart problems like high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. Coconut oil does not lead to increase in LDL levels, and it reduces the incidence of injury and damage to arteries and therefore helps in preventing atherosclerosis. Studies suggests that intake of coconut oil may help to maintain healthy lipid profiles in premenopausal women.
Weight loss: Coconut oil is very useful for weight loss. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off excessive weight. Research suggests that coconut oil helps to reduce abdominal obesity in women. It is also easy to digest and it helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid and endocrine system. Further, it increases the body’s metabolic rate by removing stress on the pancreas, thereby burning more energy and helping obese and overweight people lose the weight. Hence, people living in tropical coastal areas, who use coconut oil every day as their primary cooking oil, are normally not fat, obese or overweight.
Immunity: It strengthens the immune system because it contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. The human body converts lauric acid into monolaurin which research has supported as an effective way to deal with viruses and bacteria that cause diseases like herpes, influenza, cytomegalovirus, and even HIV. Coconut oil helps in fighting harmful bacteria like listeria monocytogenes and helicobacter pylori, and harmful protozoa such as giardia lamblia.
Digestion: Internal functions of coconut oil occur primarily due to it being used as cooking oil. It helps to improve the digestive system and thus prevents various stomach and digestion-related problems including irritable bowel syndrome. The saturated fats present in coconut oil have antimicrobial properties and help in dealing with various bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can cause indigestion. It also helps in the absorption of other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Dental care: Calcium is an important component of our teeth. Since coconut oil facilitates absorption of calcium by the body, it helps in developing strong teeth. It also stops tooth decay. Recent research suggests that coconut oil is beneficial in reducing plaque formation and plaque induced gingivitis.
