The cancer miracle combo: Coconut oil and cannabis

SAVOIR FAIRE - Mayenne Carmona (The Philippine Star) - April 1, 2014 - 12:00am

When we think of heart-friendly, healthy, and pure oil, olive oil immediately comes to mind. 

But there is an oil that we have right here in our country that is causing a lot of buzz in the medical world —that oil, that superfood, is coconut oil! 

Coconut oil is on the cutting edge of current medical research because of its amazing healing potentials such as: 

• It supposedly beautifies and protects the skin, even against skin cancer.  

• It contains a unique combination of fatty acids with powerful medicinal properties, plus a specific healing compound that fights bacterial and viral infections.

• Entire island nations escaped Western diseases for generations by consuming coconut oil. 

Coconut oil is a saturated fat and chock-full of health-promoting properties.  It has earned the title “the Cure for All Illnesses.”  They are getting evidence to prove this claim and medical researchers prove that coconut oil makes you less hungry, contains ketones that reduce seizures, improves blood cholesterol, burns fat, and boosts brain function in Alzheimer’s patients. 

But more importantly, scientists have uncovered the potential of coconut oil to aid cannabis (marijuana) in the fight against cancer. 

As an aside, I have a friend who is battling cancer with the aid of medicinal marijuana, in liquid form.  His tumor has shrunk in size substantially, much to the astonishment of his doctors.  He shared this information with a fellow cancer patient who decided to do the same and, lo and behold, his tumor is also shrinking in size. There must be some truth to this finding even if some conservative Western doctors have vilified the use of marijuana as dangerous and more of a threat than heroin, cocaine, and other dangerous drugs. 

Former US Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders wrote in a a report on March 26, 2004 titled “Myths about Medical Marijuana” and published in the Providence Journal:  “The evidence is overwhelming that marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea, vomiting, and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as multiple sclerosis, cancer, and AIDS — or by the harsh drugs sometimes used to treat them. And it can do so with remarkable safety. Indeed, marijuana is less toxic than many of the drugs that physicians prescribe every day.”

But relieving pain and symptoms is just the tip of the iceberg.  Medical marijuana is said to slow the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and moderate autoimmune disorders, including multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. 

Scientists believe that, coupled with coconut oil, the healing potential of medical marijuana is amplified even more. 

Medical marijuana capsules, infused in coconut oil, are an alternative way to therapeutically use cannabis without having to inhale it through smoking. Infusing cannabis into coconut oil also allows for easy entry into the liver where it can be rapidly processed. 

The Alternative Daily reports that coconut oil is used because of its high amount of essential fatty acids, which makes it a good binding agent for the cannabinoids.  Couple this with its amazing health properties and you superpower the combination. Half of the fat in coconut oil is comprised of a fat that is not frequently found in nature, lauric acid.  Lauric acid is called a miracle ingredient because in the body it is converted to monolaurin, which is a potent antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-protozoal substance.  Monolaurin can destroy lipid-coated viruses including measles, flu, HIV, herpes, and a number of pathogenic bacteria. 

More and more medical researchers are intrigued by this powerful combination of cannabis and coconut oil and I am almost sure that the medical world will consider treating cancer with this pill, especially doctors who believe in alternative cures. 

But even without the cannabis element, I am now inclined to use coconut oil in my salad dressings, cooking, hair conditioner, and as skin moisturizer.  After all, it is plentiful in our country!
