Coconut Oil: Nature's Healing Miracle - Featured Article at CFN The Voice

Hello there!  We are finally starting to get settled in our new home and to life as a family of 5, and I am beginning to re-focus my writing efforts.  As part of that, I have started doing some freelance writing (about health and wellness, of course), and am loving it!





Today, I am so very honored to have an article featured in Christ For the Nations-The Voice online magazine!  I would love to invite you all to hop on over to their web page, read the article, and explore their other offerings.  Christ For the Nations is an amazing ministry school that has sent thousands upon thousands out into the mission field to win others for Jesus.  I am so excited to partner with them in bringing the message of divine health to the Body of Christ!

Here is a snippet of the article.  Click below to read more.


What if I were to tell you that adding one ingredient to your diet could help you lose weight and increase energy, alleviate diabetes, prevent heart disease and renew your skin?  Well, I am happy to tell you that such a product does, in fact, exist! It’s called Coconut Oil. This “miracle” product can be used for cooking and baking, and as a spread on toast, waffles, etc.
The fact that coconut oil is immediately absorbed causes it to be burned much more quickly than other fats. Most fats have to go through a long process before your body can use them for energy. However, coconut oil stimulates metabolism, which makes it more efficient. This helps you burn calories and lose weight throughout the day! Coconut oil provides a quick and healthy energy boost as it supplies nutrients to your cells directly after consumption. As a bonus, you will typically feel more satisfied and not crave sweets and unhealthy foods between meals.
What makes coconut oil so beneficial for diabetics is the way it is digested into the body. Unlike other fats, it does not cause a spike in blood sugar and does not require any insulin to be used by the body to digest it. This greatly decreases insulin resistance and stress on the liver, alleviating diabetes.
