According to the American Cancer Society, the number of people diagnosed with colon cancer in the States will rise up to 95,270 this year alone.
When a patient is diagnosed with colon cancer the usual course of treatment is radiation therapy, surgery, or chemo, but all of these treatments have severe side-effects. But people still choose them because they don’t know any better.
We’ve already heard about the healing properties of coconut oil, we know that it’s extremely beneficial for our overall health and can help with a number of medical conditions. Its healing powers come from its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antifungal, anti-bacterial, anti-carcinogenic, antiviral, anti-microbial, and anti-viral properties. So it’s no surprise it can help in the treatment of colon cancer.
Regular consumption of coconut oil reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, keeps your blood sugar under control, eliminates candida infections and dangerous fungi, stabilizes the insulin levels and helps in maintaining a healthy weight.
According to a study published in the journal Cancer Research coconut oil, or more exactly the lauric acid it contains, has powerful anti-cancer properties. Researchers at the University of Adelaide found that it destroys over 90% of colon cancer cells in a colon cancer cell line in vitro.
