“The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.” ~Hippocrates








by Sayer Ji

Few beverages on this planet are as  bio compatible  to the human body and its hydration needs as coconut water.   Indeed, coconut water has been reported to have been used for  intravenous hydration  and resuscitation of critically ill patients in remote regions of the world for over half a century.     It is also an excellent preserving medium for avulsed teeth , better even than Hank’s balanced salt solution, a commonly used medical solution.

While some are concerned about the sugar content of this slightly sweet beverage,   recent research shows it actually exhibits  blood sugar lowering  properties in an experimental model of diabetes.     Additional animal research shows coconut water prevents and  reverses high blood pressure associated with fructose feeding-induced hypertension, as well being able to reduce oxidative stress and insulin resistance.  

Perhaps one of the most amazing properties of coconut water is its  superior lipid modulating activity  in the animal model vis-à -vis the cholesterol-lowering statin drug known as lovastatin.    Which means we can, in clear conscience, modify Hippocrates’ famous saying to: “Let What You Drink Be Your Medicine.”

Other Medicinal Properties of Coconut Water

Anti-Ulcer Properties:   Both coconut milk and coconut water exhibit potent anti-ulcer activity against chemicals such as indomethacin, a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID).

Blood-Pressuring Lowering Properties:   When human subjects consumed coconut water for two weeks, it was found to lower blood pressure in 74% of the experimental group, reducing it by up to 24 points (mmHg) systolic and 15 points (mmHq) diastolic.

Anti- Alzheimer’s Properties: in an animal model of ovariectomy-induced menopausal changes, coconut water appeared to prevent the decline of brain estrogen (estradiol) levels, as well as the associated accumulation of Alzheimer’s disease associated β-amyloid (Aβ) plaque in their brains.

Anti-Bacterial Properties: Three novel antimicrobial peptides have been identified in coconut water which exhibited inhibitory activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

Anti-Gastroenteritis Agent:   When sodium is added (ideally sea salt) coconut water has been determined to be an ideal re-hydrating agent in countries where medical supplies are not freely available, and where, say, cholera and other severe forms of gastroenteritis persist.

Ultimately, coconut makes for an excellent  alternative to sports drinks, which are increasingly comprised of synthetic ingredients. Also, coconut water is filtered by Nature through an intensive purification process — far safer than municipal systems which leave up to 600  toxic disinfectant byproducts  behind.

About the Author: Sayer Ji is the founder and chair of His writings and research has been published in the Wellbeing Journal, the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity, and have been featured on Reuters,,,,, His critically acclaimed essay series The Dark Side of Wheat opens up a new perspective on the universal, human-species specific  toxicity of wheat, and is now available for PDF download.

So you’ve got a big interview tomorrow afternoon. You’re ready. You’ve got your resume, your speech, and your perfect “hire me” shoes. You wake up, and immediately — you feel it. 

Right on your chin. Right under your skin. The dreaded zit. It’s just ready and waiting to pop up and form a painful, life-ruining eye sore. 

Don’t have time to pick up acne cream? Don’t fret — there are a number of home remedies to reduce the appearance of that angry red blemish.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is great because it’s got natural antibacterial properties without any harsh, synthetic chemicals. It’s perfect for when you want to cleanse and dry out a zit but don’t want to walk around with a creamy splotch on your face.
To do: First, dilute the oil with water, put a little bit on a clean Q-tip or cotton swab and apply directly to the pimple. Apply as often as necessary.

Witch Hazel

Very much like tea tree oil, witch hazel is a natural astringent, but also a disinfectant. It not only treats acne but cleanses the skin and can also help with acne scars.
To do: Place on Q-tip or cotton swab and apply directly to the area. Again, apply as often as you feel necessary, but watch out, witch hazel can be very drying.  


Honey is a truly wonderful (and delicious) thing, because it’s:

1. An antibiotic 2. . Hyper acidic, preventing bacteria growth 3. An anti-inflammatory, which reduce swelling and redness 4. Rich in natural antioxidants 5. Sticky. This normally unpleasant consistency can actually remove dirt and grime.
To do: You can eat it, you can apply it directly to the zit with a Q-tip, or or you can make a scrub, which leads us to our next remedy…

Brown sugar scrub

This “magic potion” of honey, brown sugar and lemon juice is the perfect scrub to remove excess dead skin and cleanse the area. Brown sugar makes an excellent exfoliant while lemon is a powerful astringent and disinfectant giving your pimple a one-two punch
To do: Mix a tablespoon of honey, a half tablespoon of brown sugar and two squirts of lemon juice. Smooth all over face. Scrub in small circles for about five minutes. Rinse with warm water and a wash cloth. Your skin will feel refreshed, clean and as smooth as a baby’s bottom.


Nope, it’s not just for cramps or hangovers. Aspirin is a useful remedy because its effective ingredient is chemically similar to salicylic acid, which helps cleanse and exfoliate the skin.
To do: Crush one to four tablets (no more than that because it can lead to blood-thinning issues), add in one or two tablespoons of water to make a paste. Apply a thin layer and allow to dry. Rinse area with warm water.


This is amazing at reducing redness and swelling. It’s cool, it’s made up of mostly water so it’s obviously moisturizing and like honey, it’s delicious.
To do: There are three ways in which to use cucumber. First, you can puree in a blender to make a mask and let stand for 30 to 35 minutes. Second, you can simply use the juice as a natural astringent by squeezing it out and applying or rubbing them on your face and leaving it on as long as you like. Third, you can place sliced (and refrigerated) cucumbers directly to the affected area in order to utilise its natural anti-inflammatory properties.

Egg Whites

Using egg whites to treat acne has been passed down from generation to generation (at least in my family). They’re proven effective for certain skin types because of their drying ability, which cleanses and lifts dirt and debris out of the pores. They also soak up excess oil and act as an astringent.
To do: Crack an egg. Separate the white from the yolk. Whisk the egg white and spread a thin layer onto skin (with a cotton ball preferably). Place a tissue on your face and leave it for about 40 to 45 minutes. When it’s completely dry, peel it off. Cleanse skin afterwards with warm water or a toner.

Vitamin E

So you’ve jumped past the first few hurdles. The zit has come and gone. But, unfortunately, it’s left a pretty gnarly scar in its wake. Well, not to worry. It’s nothing some Vitamin E can’t handle. Zits suck out moisture, making the skin extremely dry, and Vitamin E has properties that hydrates and softens the skin, increases blood circulation and helps in tissue formation and regeneration.
To Do: You can remove the oil from a Vitamin E capsule and apply directly to the scar. However, if you’ve got oily skin, it might be better to take it orally.

Everyone has different skin, which reacts differently to different topical treatments, so be gentle with your skin. If it’s one of those painful “under-the-skin” zits that take much too long to form, I recommend you place a hot towel over the area to force it to come to a head quicker, so you can get right to healing that sucker. If it’s really bad and you get these types of zits often, you might need to consult a dermatologist.

Chakras are our energy centers. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. They are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions.

There are seven major chakras. The first chakra (root) actually hangs outside of your body. It is located between your thighs, about halfway between your knees and your physical body. The seventh chakra (crown) is located on the top of your head. The remaining chakras, (sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, and third eye), are aligned in sequence along your spine, neck, and skull. Individually, your chakras look similar to funnels with petal-like openings.

Chakras are invisible to the human eye, but they can be perceived intuitively by trained energy workers.

Evaluating the Health of Your Chakras

Having your chakras evaluated by a trained practitioner is a good way to get a better understanding of how your body functions on an energetic level. An energy worker trained in reading chakras will be able to tell you which chakras are functioning poorly and which chakras are working overtime. When one or two chakras are performing at a reduced level, the remaining chakras have to pick up the slack. Having a non-functioning chakra can effectively "blow out" an otherwise healthy chakra. Not good.

Keeping Your Chakras in Proper Alignment

When your back or hip gets out of alignment you will make a trip to the chiropractor's office for a spinal adjustment. Similarly, a healer trained in manipulating the energy flow of energy can assist you in getting misaligned chakras back to functioning properly. It may take one or more appointments with a practitioner to get your energy levels up to par. Afterwards, there are a variety of healthy actions you can take to help keep them open, allowing your energy to flow naturally.

If you are not familiar with chakras, being told that your chakras are out of alignment can be frightening. And unfortunately, there are unethical healers and charlatans posing as caring intuitives who alarm people by telling them a blocked chakra is causing great harm and needs to be repaired immediately for a ridiculous price. So, be aware.
