From Activist Post:
” Mainstream science has now fully recognized the ‘miracle’ powers of coconut oil to not only combat tooth decay and drastically improve overall mouth health, but also to specifically crush a yeast known as candida albicans that can lead to deadly infections. This ‘news’ likely comes as nothing more than further confirmation for many, as natural health practicioners have been recommending coconut oil for years.
The research comes from the Athlone Institute of Technology, where Ireland-based scientists examined the effects of natural and digested coconut oil on common strains of bacteria within the mouth. What they found was that not only did the coconut oil effectively inhibit a majority of the bacteria strains single-handedly, but it was also particularly harmful to candida albicans. This is important when considering the fact that an excessive amount of the yeast known as candida albicans can be brought upon by a poor diet consisting of processed foods and sugar.
Candida infection, also known as candida overgrowth or the ‘candy disease’, can be associated with symptoms like chronic tiredness, recurring yeast infections, and digestive issues. It can also lead to a mouth infection known as thrush — a condition typically ‘treated’ using anti-fungal medications preceeded by an x-ray of your esophagus. Now, researchers are highlighting how coconut oil intake can be an alternative solution with far less side effects and concerns.
In their report, the scientists state that coconut oil could be ‘an effective alternative to chemical additives’ in most dental hygiene products. This refers to the many sulfate chemicals linked to numerous conditions, added fluoride, and many others.”
Notice how, as usual, these scientists do not acknowledge that “coconut oil” has been used for thousands of years in India for its healthful and beautifying properties. Every Ayurvedic regime recommends “oil-pulling” (gargling) with virgin cold-pressed coconut oil; Indian women use it to condition their hair and skin; it is used to cook and is also drunk on its own.
Coconut, like turmeric, cayenne, and dozens of other medicinal plants and herbs, has long been known in India as a curative for dental, skin, and hair problems. It has been studied in India’s scientific institutions and recommended by its clinics and yoga centers for decades. It is a traditional oil familiar to the poorest people on the street.
But the ethnocentrism of Western science is such that none of this is even acknowledged, let alone appreciated, in mainstream reports, giving rise to the pervasive false history that ensures that even educated people in the West remain in a bubble of chauvinistic self-delusion.
This is a bubble central to the high levels of acceptance of empire in Western society.
After all, if everything has been discovered, invented, or created by the West, Western imperialism has to be good for the world.
