Learning About Allergies and Asthma

Hello, my name is Rodney Turner. Welcome to my website about allergies and asthma. As a kid, I could not go through the spring months without suffering from back to back asthma attacks. The asthma attacks usually started when my pollen allergies flared up. As doctors linked these two conditions, I was given medication to better control my attacks and improve my health. On this site, I will explore the link between allergies and asthma, plus talk about the treatments available for both of these conditions. Please feel free to visit my site daily to arm yourself with the knowledge you need to overcome allergies and asthma. Thanks.

Cuckoo For Coconut: How All-Natural Coconut Oil Can Help Your Hair, Skin, And Overall Health

It's all the rage to incorporate coconut oil into your daily regimen now, or so your more naturalist friends tell you. But because coconut oil has become so popular, research is coming out all the time that supports one controlling idea; coconut oil is good for you. How good for you is it? If you're wondering why you should incorporate coconut oil into your meal plans – and into your collection of bathroom cosmetics – then here's what you need to know.

Your Hair

First things first – if you suffer from dryness in your hair or your scalp, you should try working coconut oil into your hair's care routine. Coconut oil's incredible amounts of moisture are good for hydrating a dry scalp and moisturizing the hair itself, which prevents strands from breaking and split ends from forming along with making your hair smooth, shiny, and (most importantly) healthy. As an added bonus, if you're looking to grow your hair out, coconut oil can help, not only in preventing strand breakage (which makes hair appear longer) but also in stimulating hair growth when rubbed into the hair follicles on your scalp.

Your Skin

As good as coconut oil is for your hair, however, it provides even more benefits for your skin. Using coconut oil from an organic grocery as a shaving cream will give you a smooth shave while both fighting infection with its antimicrobial properties (in case you nick yourself while shaving) and hydrating your legs. If you're not quite ready to take a tub of coconut oil in the shower, using it as a moisturizer for dry, cracked hands will soften up the skin there in no time. And if you don't want to waste money on trying every store-bought face highlighter under the sun, a sweep of coconut oil on top of your makeup will give the perfect amount of highlight to your cheeks without caking more product onto your pores.

Your Overall Body

Coconut oil doesn't only help when applied topically, however – incorporating it into your daily diet can bring many benefits to your body's overall health. Consuming coconut oil in any form gives your body quick energy without raising your glycemic index, which is good news for diabetics and carb-counters alike. The multi-chain triglycerides found in coconut oil also helps you burn fat, raising your energy expenditure from stored fat by 5% daily. Last (but certainly not least), coconut oil in your diet can improve your blood cholesterol levels, which can lead to a healthier heart and a smaller chance of cardiac problems (like heart attacks).
