Hello everyone! It's been a long time since I have posted anything, but I just wanted to share some information I found on the internet that may benefit us. It is about the many benefits of coconut oil. Here is a quote I found from the website http://www.coconutdiet.com. I hope this is helpful to you
"Last year I stared noticing embarrassing little red scaly itchy patches of skin on my hands. I tried just about every lotion for dry and sensitive skin on the Wal-Mart shelf, and got very few results. I made an appointment with my doctor and she diagnosed me with psoriasis. She sent me to the pharmacy with a prescription for a psoriasis cream and a lotion and instructed me to use them everyday. The lotion and cream stung so bad, it was worse then the itchy skin I had been dealing with for months. By this time I had big patches on my hands, few on my neck, and on my eyelids. I was getting desperate because people were starting to notice more and more my red flaky skin. While doing some research for a natural solution on line I stumbled across the Tropical Traditions website, and read about all the health benefits of cold pressed coconut oil. I don't see anything specific about helping to alleviate the dry skin of psoriasis, but it did say it was an excellent skin moisturizer so I thought I would give it a try. The day I got it I started adding a little to just about everything I ate. I ended up incorporating about 2-3 Tablespoons a day into my food, and using it as a moisturizer on my psoriasis patches as well as the rest of my body. In no time at all my psoriasis was gone. As an added bonus my splotchy complexion started evening out, my skin has never been softer, and my body temperature rose to the level where I was no longer cold all the time. I am very grateful I found this perfect oil, it has made a huge difference in the way my skin looks and feels. I am now a lifetime customer of Tropical Traditions Cold Pressed Coconut Oil.
