This week we have a brief article about the benefits of coconut oil and some great uses for it!

Crazy About Coconuts

by Courtney Dunlop

Coconuts and organic coconut oil

If you’re going to choose just one product to add to your beauty arsenal this summer, coconut oil might be your best bet. Coconut’s chemical compounds make this natural ingredient a powerful tool to solve a whole handful of skin issues, including dryness, acne and sun damage.

Virgin coconut oil contains fatty acids, so it’s compatible with our skin barrier and therefore killer at preventing moisture loss. Its moisturizing abilities make it a great conditioner, lip balm, cuticle oil and shaving oil. In addition, the fatty acids help repair skin cells, counteracting damage done by aging and sun exposure. Coconuts are also packed with growth factors, such as kinetin, a plant hormone that promotes cell division and slows skin-cell aging. Basically, this powerful oil can help keep your hair and skin looking healthy and young (Score!).

Bonus use? Coconut oil makes a great makeup remover – the oil breaks down and dissolves stubborn makeup and sunscreen. Seems like there isn’t much this skin-saver can’t do.

William Esteb’s “Spiritual Subluxations”

Often we are only concerned about our spinal subluxations that we often ignore the spiritual subluxations! Here’s an article about how to recognize those signs.

Healthy-Tips-For-A-Healthy-Living

Cloudy thinking – A mental fog makes it difficult to think clearly, obscuring opportunities and solutions.

Procrastination – Postponing a needed action is often a sign you’re off-purpose or unsure what it is.

Lack of concentration – Succumbing to the distraction of the Internet, email and other shiny objects can be an effective tactic.

Worry – Rehearsing what you don’t want is not only counterproductive, it squelches your creativity and problem-solving abilities.

Fear – A spiritual oppression that can only exist without faith, seducing you to live in a future that hasn’t happened. And probably won’t.

Depression – Anger (without enthusiasm) is a gold mine for drug companies, allowing the anger to go unforgiven.

A common deception is that spiritual oppression doesn’t exist. While chiropractic care is a good start, addressing spiritual subluxations requires spiritual tools such as prayer, fasting, gratitude and forgiveness.
